Brows

DeuxLooks - brows

These brows. Just stop it, ok? They’re so amazing. I recently had my own RL brows microbladed. So worth it! By the way, if you like the bold brows look in SL, then be sure to also play around with the eyebrows included with your LeLutka bento head, because they are completely wild and awesome too.

These brows can be found on the new Carol skin from Glam Affair @Uber. Probably my favorite Glam Affair rendition on eyebrows yet. My dress is by Clef de Peau, and was irresistible because of the damn bow.

A penchant for lace

Lace: so sexy, decadent, and seductive. I cannot believe I used to hate this fabric IRL. It’s true. It used to make me itch – but I didn’t know that was only because it was cheap and I was 16. Times have changed.

DeuxLooks - a penchant for lace

In my opinion, no other fabric understands women’s bodies like lace. Also, it doesn’t have to be “girly.” Versatile, lace can go to the office in a very proper feminine knee-length dress, all the way to a cropped white lace top for a summer night out, and everything in between. This lace dress is by LYBRA and I didn’t expect to like it as much as I do because it’s shorter than I usually favor. But, the fit is perfect and the texture is lovely. If there had been a classic navy version, I would have loved it even more.

Skin Fair Wraps Up

Only a handful more days at Skin Fair, so get your last licks in now. I am wearing another new skin from my haul from a brand I have never heard of, never seen, and never blogged before. I like to live dangerously. Boatoam reminds me of Bold & Beauty in terms of tone but with better body appliers. Note, I am wearing it with eyeshadow and lipstick from Izzie’s because I thought the lips looked really odd without additional lipstick. YMMV!

I like to be perfect

“I like to be perfect but I don’t like perfection.” – Alber Elbaz

DeuxLooks - i like to be perfect

How true, Mr. Elbaz (one of my most favorite designers and fashion personalities – famous for hating to be seen as a “personality” and hating to have his photo taken). What does this have to do with what I am wearing? Well, I guess I find “perfection” boring (he finds it dangerous). There is nothing after perfection. Nowhere to go next. This skin from alaskametro for LeLutka mesh heads is so charmingly “imperfect” that it’s one of my favorite skins in some time.

I have been looking – unsuccessfully until now – for a skin I like as much for its character as I do for its beauty.

It is so hauntingly beautiful in its imperfection. TBH, I was completely smitten the moment I tried it on.

I am not a bot

This week I got a note from someone that said, “I miss when you looked more original. Currently you just look like another LeLutka bot.” I can assure you, I am not a bot. But if I were, I wouldn’t mind looking like this?

Still uniquely my own

I have talked about the reasons I am trending more towards wearing my Simone head above others currently. I still feel like my stylings are very uniquely my own. I definitely look forward to each and every time I log into SL being inspired by what our creators provide us. Incidentally, I am wearing a skin by a completely new to me creator, Avenge. I found Melania @Skin Fair and really liked it. Note, I added lips and eyeshadow from Izzie’s, also @Skin Fair.

I think I make a pretty amazing looking bot.
