Gos Boutique released the lovely Vicky boots at Fameshed this month, and they are so very like a favorite pair of mine in RL that I knew I would have to blog them. Finding suitable pants to wear with them, however, was a challenge. Pants in SL tend to be of three varieties. One: Skintight from top to bottom; Two: highwaisted with super bell-bottoms (not a bad look, but the trend now is for the bell bottom to be so long that it actually cover the whole shoe. What then, is the point of wearing a cute shoe? Not to mention the potential for tripping and falling over your own clothing.); Three: Tight on the legs but with a baggy and low-riding crotch. I freely admit in my middle aged frumpiness that I have never been able to understand either the fashion sense or the practical idea of having a wad of fabric between your legs that serves no purpose. Does one wipe one’s hands on them? Smuggle things into the movie theater to avoid paying exorbitant prices for snacks? Incubate a marsupial? These are the mysteries of life that confound me. At any rate, I was able to find these great pants from Mutiny in Heaven; fitted and decently waisted and with a leg cut to accommodate my new boots without totally swamping them. Given the amount of ankle boots available on the grid, it would make sense that there would be pants that work with them. They would certainly be welcomed by me! I should mention that if you wear a mesh body these pants are not fitmesh; I had to wear the unrigged version of the boots to make them work with the pants. Another favorite this week is the beautiful Kingslie hair from Shylah Honey of Damselfly. I love the beautiful sweeping textures in this design.
