Bambi releases a new line, The Shelter

Bambi63 Rehula of The Closet

I hopped over to The Closet to see the lovely Bambi's new releases. When I got there, I ran into several fashion-conscious women who were also excited about the outfits. The conversation went something like this.

Dove: We're such fashion whores.

Me: Hey, speak for yourself! I'm more of a fashion courtesan!

Dove: I want a pretty word for myself too!

Me: *hands you 'Paramour'*

Dove Swanson in Ivalde

Dove mentioned that she's been totally addicted to Ivalde this week, and had to buy all of the latest releases. Today, Ivalde also has a free group dress today that looks perfect for spring! (More about that over here at Neferia's blog.)

Then, Sai and Dove and I all trooped down to the cool slightly-hidden bunker that was the inspiration for Bambi's new clothing line, "The Shelter". I can see why the clothes are in this nifty nuclear hideaway -- they're darker and more punk than the rest of Bambi's things, all ripped and burnt and torn as if they've been through heck.

Here I get slightly controversial and mention that it's no wonder that Japanese designers are drawn to dark themes in Second Life. Cyberpunk is inherently post-apocalyptic, and if you think about it, they've already seen the end of all things...

Sai Pennell looking all sleek and lovely

I put together today's outfit with a few things in mind. First, that fluffy hair surely goes with fluffy shirts, and second, that I'm sleepy enough that I'm not sure I'm coherent. My daughter was up all night with a fever, and I put my sleep at around four hours. What to say on a day like this? Good thing we've got enough episodes of Little Einsteins to keep her occupied, and that these clothes (a mix of The Closet and Kurotsubaki) are chic enough to shine through my sleepies.

Oh my gosh, I love the way you worked those pieces into the outfit. Wow. This might be my favorite mashup of clothing so far! +10pts

Hee. I really like this combination too. Maybe it'll be one of my default walking-around outfits.

Sai Pennell said...

O_O Thats a picture of me in your post! Hehe~ ^^

Anyway, I agree with Dove, great mashup there you have going there ^^

I adore those pants, and have been wearing them ever since I bought them that day XD

Auntykuro said...

I like the pants too, and thanks, I might wear this outfit to death. :D
