I miss school.  I miss the days when a school bag was my permanent accessory and boys were the perennial topic.  So, I have taken the liberty to declare this week as a back to school week!  There are a lot of nice school outfits out there but I have my eyes set on this Redgrave Retro Jacket.  I stumbled across it in their men’s department.  The sporty pinstripe finishing is undoubtedly clean and academic.

I paired the jacket with a sheer black blouse for a mischievous feel and a black flexi skirt that comes with a brown belt.  Then, I layered a pair of white knee high knitted socks, added a pair of artistic brown pumps and completed the look with a pair of glasses (frame colored in Sienna).

The ETD Luth Tawny (Burnt) hair just enhances the freshness of this look.

I like to thank Decoy Nagy for his inputs on this ensemble.

It’s a sunny and bright day, a good day to step out for tea, and a nice excuse to leave those jeans and put on some ladylike clothing to feel feminine. To create a ladylike ensemble, I begin with a Last Call low neck lace blouse that comes with a pair of lacy cuffs.  I have chosen this blouse because of its overall finish, which is sleek and sexy.  I then paired the blouse with a well textured grey pencil skirt from Ingenue and layered with a pair of black nylon stockings.  To complete the feminine look, I put on a pair of black pumps and accessorized with a light grey thin belt with gold buckle (modified and textured myself), a stylish ivory and lace clutch, a gold and white necklace, and a nice wool Jessica hat from ETD (hair included).   

Looking and feeling completely ladylike, I am ready to enjoy the sun, my tea, and my day.

It’s been so fun hopping from sim to sim for events and freebies that I actually had to command myself to stop and start working on this posting.  Making sure that I sound commanding enough, I have put together an outfit that makes that statement. I started with a black Muism military coat with gold detail around it.  I love the texture of this coat as the gathers at the front and shoulder of the coat make it looks more puffed up; and with the color combination of black and gold, this coat speaks authority and presence – something that I haven’t seen in both lives.  I teamed the coat with a brown fine strip polo neck that is simple yet able to go with anything, as well as a pair of my favorite Armidi Dark Painter capri.  Lastly, I added a matching knee high boots in Mahogany from Last Call to give the overall outfit more edge. 

I love how the Cake Europa hair and color gives a soft touch to the look.
