The Birds

February 13, 2012

Channeling Tippi Hedren while taking my little dog for a walk, things got a little frightening (!) but at least I was wearing some of my favorite new mesh items. I love the Harris coat from S h i. Here I have not worn all the attachments so it looks more like a short jacket with elbow length sleeves. I like the short sort of casualness of it and the little touch of luxury with the fur collar. (It is gorgeous as a full coat and comes with two variations of the sleeves and I am sure most of you have seen it as it has been blogged a lot.) The skin tight leather pants are part of Maitreya’s mesh offerings. They are beautifully detailed and come in several dark and subtle color variations. The shoes are called Treaders …. I seriously love the rubber soles and slightly chunky look. They are also from Maitreya and are not mesh nor do they come with the foot in them so you can add your own socks—yay—which I did. I am loving the scarf from Zaara…it was part of the final 50 linden Friday. (So sorry that is gone.) It looks like a great Hermes scarf. The Cinch Belt is by Gospel Voom and as always with his creations, beautifully designed and crafted. I tried not to go overboard with the jewelry…the earrings from LaGyo make such a bold statement you don’t need much else so I limited it to some great rings and a little bracelet. Kept it simple with a classic purse in ostrich from Fleshtone so it wouldn’t compete with my dog carrier bag from Zoobies. OK got to run..the birds……….. As always click on any photo for a hi-res version and more detail! See ya, Elisabeth

Meet Oscar!

March 2, 2009

oscar-composite-2Look what I got for my birthday…Oscar! Isn’t he cute? I know you have already seen these darling dogs sold by Zoobies….they really are the ultimate accessory and they are so much fun. He looks around, and barks, and makes all kinds of little puppy noises. (Luckily it’s all menu-driven if you don’t want to be bothered by the sound).  Oscar is accessorizing a cute little Tyrolean outfit from Anuenue…one of my newly found favorite stores. The cardigan is a nicely textured, Austrian boiled wool with ribbon trim embroidered with what looks very much like edelweiss ❤ .   The half pants are wide-wale corduroy trimmed with mouton at the knee and they have the most wonderful pocket and waistband detail. (To see the detail larger, click on the photo.) I  love the Timberland-style hiking boots from Swaffette Firefly and the belt from Reale. Oh, oh, oh… and check the detailing on Oscar’s carrier…toys! Even a miniature sock-monkey. It just can’t get any cuter.

❤  Elisabeth
