Good things are worth waiting for........

Today was a day that held a dear surprise for me in that Shai Delacroix released the Amorsolo suit in black. This has been a dream of mine since I first got hold of the Amorsolo in grey around a year ago, and I must say, it was worth the wait. The suit's black shirt (which you would have seen me wearing in many many styles I have made up as it is an invaluable piece of my inventory) now contains a beautifully sculpted prim collar that is coated in the intricate textures that the suit is known for. I must say I waited (and pestered a few times) for Shai to make this version of my favorite suit in all SL and to finally have it on feels amazing.

Lookr what I found here.....

Well I didn't really find this store, but it was moreso my friend Mui Mukerji asking me if I had been before and upon me vaguely remembering the name, I accepted the tp and came to check out the clothing available at this store. Upon arrival I remember it was a store I had checked out a while ago, and thought to of going back to to pick up some clothes when I tired of the old standbys. However upon getting some of the clothes here, I was regretting my decision to not pick some up earlier as the texturing is first rate, and has all the neccessary shading and prim detailing you would expect from a more seasoned designer, however at a fraction of the cost of what a more well known designer would charge.

The Lookr brand is the product of Adam Soler and he has done an amazing job at creating some beautiful clothing that is priced at an attractive rate. Perhaps my favorite item I purchased was the Rider jacket, which I bought in Copper and the pictured Red. this jacket has a rather striking visual appearance, accented by well made prim cuffs and collar. the best thing was the coolar was a perfect fit to my av, and I didn't have to resize them too much as I have to do with some items I purchase. The other items I purchased were the Lookr From shirt in gold and the Form Blazer, and I must say I was really impressed by the breadth of options available in layering and prims for such a great price. Adam is probably moreso known for his SL photography skills being a featured artist at gallerys such as Vain and Twilight, but I must say, his clothes are as high quality as his photos. If you are looking for quality at a nice price, Lookr is as good a place as any on the grid.

Limited edition coat set at Muism

Yesterday after finishing reading the Runway magazine and finding out I was a finalist for Male Model of the Year I stumbled across an article that said that limited edition Muism Yeti coats will be available as of the 1st November. So me being the Muism fiend I am, I tp there right away, only to find the coats were not yet in store, as the new Guerilla section was still being completed.

Anyhow, a quick IM to Icemocolo and he was kind enough to tp me to the new section where he laid out the vendors and I was the lucky guy first in line to buy one of these amazing coats. My friend Belle LeFavre was the lucky first to get one of the womens coats, and Ice was kind enough to help her out with fitting it, and we laughingly joked at how hard it is to explain to someone how to fit things. We all had a good long chat about all kinds of random things for a couple of hours and it was so refreshing to get to chat with someone whose work inspires alot of people. Ice remarked that this coat took him a year to develop the neccesary tools to be able to create the coat to the standard he expected, and I must say it was worth the work with this coat giving you a feeling or power and distinction upon wearing it. It also comes with an undercoat, shirt and these plaid pants you can see in the pic to give great value for money, and considering it is a limited edition available only for this month, how can you not go and grab one?

The Yeti in smoke wasn't my only purchase though. I bought this Muism Slim fitted S.W. suit in brown as I have rarely seen any suits that aren't in standard colours that I really like, and I must say this suit is an awesome addition to my inventory also. Classic styling, the option of 3 different collars and enough layers to wear it with other parts of inventory make it good value. This suit is available in other colours as well but when the gf tells you how good you look in this as mine did, I think I made the right choice. Also in these pics I am wearing the new Muism stud earrings and they are awesome. After hunting around since December last year for a quality Mens earring I finally found the one I am after. These releases once again show that Icemocolo and Migi Voom are at the forefront of urban fashion in SL and I anxiously await their next new releases.
