MALT x 2

10 06 2009

I went a little overboard at the MALT sale last weekend, I must confess.  But I got some incredibly fun stuff, including a pair of black cargo shorts that I just had to show you.

I’m a big fan of cargo shorts, both rl and sl, because of their versatility and comfort.  I knew when I bought them that they could be worn with a super casual look or a very sohpisticated and sexy look.  Of course, I had to do both.

I started out with the casual look because I wanted to check out the opening of the Creve Coeur at First Meta opening.  Lots of great designers have stores there, and the idea of a carnival was too fun to pass up.  Here I am on the carousel.

I achieved my punky casual look by pairing the MALT Cargo Shorts with one of the Drama Queen tees by ::Exodi:: .  For Blogger Appreciation Week, Ryker Beck was kind enough to gift us all with a little store credit, and this shirt is one of the things I bought with that.  I really wanted one of the Drama Queen tees, but deciding which one was a bit tough.  Since my motto is “duck and cover” when it comes to drama, I decided to go with the one that would create the least amount of it in my life.  Plus, as soon as I saw this shirt that Katy Perry song started playing in my head.

I paired it with the Magika Robin hair in light purple because I like the edgy sexiness of it, and besides I have a hard time taking this hair off.  For skin, I chose the Shiloh (Cream) Flower Girl by ::Exodi::.  I really can’t say enough good things about Ryker’s skins.  They’re perfect for my avatar.

For shoes, I chose the fun and funky Pornstar Hi-Tops by Urban Bomb Unit and tinted them to match the purple and black theme I had assembled in this outfit.  I love these shoes because they are so customizable.  And the drop-down menu makes modifying them so easy anyone can do it.

Jewelry I kept simple with some hoop earrings from ::Exodi:, one of the Leather 2 Strap Bracers from Urban Dare, and the lovely Lucky Star Bracelet by Violet Voltaire.  I had a lot of fun at the carnival and exploring Creve Coeur.  It’s a very fun and funky place.

Later that night, I decided to let the sexy and sophisticated side of Arcadia come out and play, so I paired the MALT Cargo Shorts with the Valerie top in blue by Leezu Baxter Designs.

This top is sheer, and you can either wear it as is, wear a bra underneath it, or wear all three layer options for a more conservative look.  If you decide to be a bit more modest as I did, make sure you wear all THREE layers.  As you can see in this photo, just wearing two of them doesn’t quite hide everything.

For shoes I went with the Maitreya Frenzy Banana shoes in black; yet another item I was able to get thanks to Blogger Appreciation Week.  I just love the shoes at Maitreya, and the Frenzy line is one of my favorites.

This sexy and sophisticated updo hair is new to me, but it’s also by Magika and it’s called Bun.  I bought it in the limited edition multi color.  If you’ve not heard about this, run to Magika and check it out.  They are putting multi-colored versions of certain hairs out for a limited time.  I bought this version of Bun, and I was able to snag yet another color of the Robin hair, which makes me very happy.

The skin is another version of Shiloh by ::Exodi::. This one is the Water Lily edition of the Honey tone.  The yellow eye makeup on this made me a bit hesitant, as we all know yellow is not one of my favorite colors, but when I put it on with this outfit it just popped.  It’s really very pretty.

Because of the big and ruffled collar on the Valerie shirt, I skipped the necklace and concentrated on the bracelets.  I got this great Melange fatpack of bracelets and earrings at the Zaara sale and went with the blue bracelets for this look because they were big and chunky.  The earrings, I kept simple and just tinted the same Annah hoop earrings from ::Exodi:: that I had on with the last look.

The MALT cargo shorts are only 220L and are worth every linden just for the sheer versatility they provide.  I bet you could come up with a myriad of ways to wear them.  You’ll definitely have fun mixing and matching.
