Getting to know Zoe & A bit of style mix up

First I want to embark that today is the anniversary of 9/11/2001. I was in college at the time and by close association also knew someone that survived the tragedy. A lot of people can say that their lives changed on that day, but I had another incident that same week that personally changed mine. I do hope that anyone out there whose lives were effected in such a way that you are in a better place now than where you were on that day. There have been a lot of tragedies throughout history and instead of focusing on the bad, I try to celebrate the good.

The reason why I am celebrating specifically is that I can now finally work again without having to report to an immigration office. For those that don't know me well, I have been going through an immigration process for over a year. That now is changing and I can't wait to get my life back, so to speak. In celebration of this I will be having to get some new work clothing and thought that I would mix an outfit together that would be work appropriate in Second Life® too. Yes, I am a shop-a-holic like many out there. And btw, I do this blog just for my personal fun!

Glammin up the workplace

The influence for this look started with the hair. I stumbled upon Novocaine after a blog report on the Fashion Feed and went out and bought almost every style in at least 1 shade box. The style, Antoinette, is one of her newest releases at her store.

I thought about doing something full out glam but decided that I wanted to tone it down a bit to reflect on what I'm going through in my first life. Thus I took a dress that I adore from Shai called Roison Cocktail Dress in Zebra and detached the skirt and instead paired it up with another fave of mine, Chachet's GoldGlam full outfit, but keeping the shirt out. I love the wide legged pant that covers up the shoes.

And though one could just about wear anything under these, I wanted to glam it up with some WLB Gold & Diamond heels from Jador. The detailed flowers are amazing! With that I had to tie in the designer Jador for a second time with the ultimate bling ring that uses over 200 prims!! Not something to wear to fashion shows in SL!

To tie in the look, I used Redgrave's Rihanna eyes that truly feel like a reflection of first life. Along with this I'm wearing a PXL Linda skin that I absolutely adore the lips on. And last but not least, the lashes I'm wearing are prim ones by Celestial Studios Deviant line.
