Casual in Royal Blue

Pants outfit and jacket from Royal Blue

I’ve been at configuring, tweaking and generally messing with my “new” computer setup — actually just Windows 7 on the old box, but with more memory — that I’d almost forgotten about this pair of photos I’d taken before the Troubles started.  To be fully truthful, I’d also planned on adding a dress to this shoot; however, the skirt showed my rump to full, glorious effect, and I could never get the thing adjusted correctly.  So, pants it is again.

But some very nice pants, and an excellent top and jacket to go with them.  I’m sure I’ve said this before, but I am not adverse to casual wear.  I’ve just fallen in love with the spectacular gowns that can be purchased in Second Life.  My tastes have run toward fabulous evening gowns since I saw all those classic Vogue magazines of the Fifties and early Sixties, and ads in equally vintage magazines like National Geographic as a kid.  Once in a while, though, you have to let your hair down instead of up.  (Or instead of sideways, as my Tales from Insilico were.)

Everything except the hair and boots came from a lovely store I found called Royal Blue.  I don’t recognize the name, but they have some excellent stuff there, and this batch of separates I put together come under that rubric.  I really should have taken off the jacket at least once to show you the top I’m wearing, called (I’m serious here!) Body Con Is Not Dead.  I added to them the pants, named Meow for I am Catwoman, and this delicious blazer, called (ahem) a Preppy Blazer.  (Well, not all the names are strange there….)

You’ve seen my Celtic cross necklace in other articles, so I won’t belabor it here.  What I did do was pull a nice bob haircut and ankle boots out of inventory, as well as these shades I picked up during the Accessory Fair, and added a big chunky necklace I also picked up at Royal Blue (but what the name is I cannot remember now for the life of me), as well as some new dangle earrings from EarthStones.  Just the thing for tripping down a dock to your boat!
