This post was brought about by one SLer’s RL muse brought to the Flickr platform.

Esme Milena started a Flickr group called LookBook which was derived from the RL fashion blog www.lookbook.nu. Her vision, much like the original site’s, was to showcase different fashion perspectives with an interactive approach. I have found both the site and the growing Flickr group to be a wealth of inspiration.

For my first submission, I quickly began piecing together an outfit that combined bright colours and casual style for a noticeable, yet comfy look perfect for traipsing around the grid. I had a lot of fun creating this so I hope to bring you more LookBook fashion periodically.

Dice Beattie of Roll the Dice has been on a neon kick ever since I met him and the colours, very prevalent in his designs, are contagious. Aquas, reds, purples, and yellows have been in my fashion line of sight all season! I do believe that clothing can be a reflection of mood, and while often misinterpreted, these colours and style are a happy one for me. I hope you’re happy too and if you are, I want to know what it looks like!

P.S. This is my first attempt at photography/PhotoShop on the blog as Nic was away at work when creativity struck. I certainly appreciate all that he does!

P.P.S If you’re missing Nic in this post you can check out Bonnie & Clyde in the new and revamped issue of Aspire Magazine in our Triple Shot column. Brunette flashback!

  1. Nic here,

    I’d like to be the first one to say you did a fantastic job, baby. I am very proud of you, the picture looks wonderful. Beautiful as always, my love.

  2. Yay, you look like wearable 80’s candy! I love it.

    And thanks for the blog link, I’d never heard of it. Always up for fresh new fashion.
