How to Emo-te

I think "amerie's NAUGHTY" is now one of my favorite shops in SL, Amerie Spitteler's work is creative and fresh, the designs are cute and kitschy, and the options in each look are infinitely re-workable and her separates are really versatile. This outfit, with the exception of the tights is called "EMO Girl" and I love the open collar with the loose tie, the Jacket is classic and the skirt, also included is just adorable. Sometimes schoolgirl looks are tricky, you either look like a Porn Star or like something from a Japanese Anime Fantasy. This look is a little bit School Girl, but a lot classy too.

I was looking for an opportunity to wear these fabulous printed tights from ":bijou:", and I think they look fabulous here. The shoes, called 'Serpenti' by Damen Gorilla of "Adam N Eve" were a gift; they appeared in the folder of items I sent in my BOGOF (Buy One Get One Free) Voucher Request after the recent sale. Some folks may not a fan of a pointy-toed shoe, but I love them, and these look positively dangerous, so sexy! The purse, a little touch of cute that I picked up from "Nerdy Birdy" ages ago came in a pack with about 8 colours, but when I tried to hunt down the SLURL today, it looks like the shop has been sold and the new owner has yet to re-open, so I am not sure it will be available again.

When it come to hair, I must say that I like to mix it up, but I do have my favorite designers (ETD, Armidi, TRUTH, Celstial Studios, Maitreya, Old Gravy come to mind immediately) but I have been checking out some "NEW to ME" stuff lately, and this style called 'Elina' from "Diversity Hair" is one of them. I really love how it looks, the textures are nice, and although not really Flexi, I think this style is really well done and something I really have not seen around, I am a big fan of something that sort of diverts from the well traveled fashion paths. This is my version of the EMO Girl... but I could have done it a dozen other ways, which is why it is worth every Linden!
