Schooling Bessie with Anymore, XY Room and Back of the Closet Mash (BOCM)

I guess I’m kind of in “Back to School” mode lately. I can’t help myself. When I was a kid I always LOVED getting ready for the school year to start. I didn’t love starting school, mind you, just the preparations leading up to it. The school clothes shopping, new shoes and, my personal and very private obsession, new school supplies! Come on, you know you’re with me!

Anywhoooo, I thought this cute little jumper from Anymore was the perfect first day of school outfit. I paired it with pieces (shirt, shoes, legwarmers, glasses and tights) from an older outfit I had in the back of my closet  (would this constitute a BOCM? Maybe?) I love the texturing and shading on all of these items and I thought they complimented each other very well.

When looking for a perfect school setting, I had to do some extensive research. I mean, do you know how many school settings in SL are XXX? It’s seriously unbelievable! A lot of reform schools in SL. Apparently. *coughs*

I finally found this beautiful sim called the Principality of Picklefish that had a tiny little schoolhouse, complete with a little mascot. Meet Bessie, isn’t she darling?

Bessie and I became fast friends and she even posed for a shot with me. What a little cutie-patootie, huh? However, she did try and eat my smiley face button.  We had words, she apologized and we’re totally BFF’s now.

Back of the Closet Mash #1

I will admit it, I have an inventory that is out of control. But doesn’t every Second Life fashion fiend? Occasionally I like to wade knee deep into the shimmery, shiny, and oh so much fun muck that is my inventory and dig out a few items that haven’t seen the light of day in a while, and pair them up with newer items that I’ve purchased. A little bit of “something old, something new!”

Here’s my first BOCM for my first blog post ever on The Unapologietic Second Life Fashion Blog. I was feeling a big… well… rebellious today and came across this adorable dress from Razorblade in my closet. Paired up with the funky aqua hair from Exile, I thought it kinda rocked. I was in desperate need of some ink, so I stopped in at Aitui and saw their incredible “Red Series” line of tattoos that are not only incredibly detailed and beautiful, but you receive a notecard with the meaning behind the artwork on the tattoo. I chose the “NeverHate” tattoo because tolerance is something I preach in my RL and in my SL. I am definitely an “Baby I was Born this Way” kinda girl.

During my travels this week, I popped in to iRen and fell in love with the tattoo teeth! I thought they would give this look just a little bit of oomph! Ya know what I mean? Just look at that face. Looks like trouble to me my friends!
