Quidditch, Anyone?


Real men wear pink … and pixel men do too. When I first laid eyes on the new pink hooded dawn jacket from +Grasp+, I knew right away that I wanted to blog it.  The reflective, luminous textures on this jacket are the perfect antidote to our long, dark winter nights.  It was easy to build an outfit around this jacket.  I decided to complement it with pieces from other creators - creators whose detailed attention to light and form have kept us all spellbound season after season.  Light and magic.  Get dressed tonight, cast your spell, and dazzle the dark with light.  Expecto Patronum!

Goodnight, Travel Well.


The inspiration for this outfit came from imagining what I would wear if I was traveling around, alone on a bike, lost in my thoughts.  I'm not sure how this all came about, but this thought helped inspire this post. When picking out clothing made from leather, I normally automatically go for black, but I really loved the brown Riders jacket from 19 Motorcycle.  The over sized beanie from Hermony comes with an alpha layer so it scales down the time of  adjusting it.  It also comes with a tattoo hair layer, so you don't have to worry about fitting hair underneath it.  The wide scarf from Mr. Poet is texture change (and free), so I definitely recommend this item as a must-have. I hope you enjoy.

Joyful and Triumphant.


'Tis the season, and before I get carried away with feeling the Christmas spirit and overeating, I wanted the opportunity to post while I can still fit into these jeans. :)  Blissfully, I am now on winter break and have the luxury of not having to shave on the daily, so I thought I would wear one of my favorite ginger skins (from Dutch Touch) and showcase a little goatee to reflect my life of leisure over the next few weeks.  I paired it with the new Iruco Hair 08 to give it a little retro flair.  Oh, and while I have your attention, the jacket you see before you is a FREE gift for the holidays from Kiitos, so get your rump roast in gear and get it immediately!  Stay warm and happy holidays!

Visions of Winter


They seemed to come suddenly upon happiness as if they had surprised a butterfly in the winter woods - Edith Wharton, "Ethan Frome"

Through much of the year, Nature supplies us with a clothing layer from the sunshine and warmth of the Spring and Summer.  Whether it's the dry, wind-blown curls of hair still scented with the salt from a swim in the ocean or the fresh gold and pink veneer of skin just kissed by the sun . . . in the Spring & Summer our bodies radiate the touch of the season.  Winter is different.  In Winter our bodies are often cocooned as our wardrobes become more elaborate.  In fact, Winter is the season when our unique tastes and individual styles take the snow-white center stage to recreate the sleeping magic of Spring.  Winter is the season of the sublime; the season when we spread our wings, and surprise each other with the creative pageantry of our individuality.  Throughout the Winter months . . . we provide the magic.

Out In The Town


One of my favorite things about winter is that you can be more inventive with expressing yourself through clothing by layering. Not only does it look like you are keeping warm, but you have more options to show your personality and unique clothing style.  I love long coats, and for those of you who do too, I definitely recommend the Lelutka Matusalen jacket.  I also really enjoy the new Lloyd Sweater from Young Urban.  It incudes the tie and shirt with the sweater so you don't have to go hunt those down to put it all together.  To finish the look, I grabbed some great pants from Ducknipple and these boots from Ispachi, and ta-da, a great sophisticated yet casual look for winter!
