Draco and I rarely shop together, we just don't have the time, and when we do have time, we spend it going on dates or logging off of SL entirely and watching movies while on skype chat. The last time we did go shopping, was when I dragged him to the RFL Clothing Fair, made him go low prim, and brave the lag to keep me company while I waited for things to rez. But while he patiently searched for the "Man Chairs" to wait while I shopped, he spotted this sexy Nocturnal Jewel Dress in Emerald from AVid, and he said he wanted to get it for me. Honestly, when I first saw it on the vendor, I liked it, but I was not in love with it. I would likely not have chosen it for myself, but he wanted to see me in it, so I said yes and tucked it away for the next Goth Event at PIN UPS. I had almost forgotten about it until this week, when the lovely Dahni Ella made her return to the club, DJing her own Rez Day Bash, and she asked for a Goth Event specifically. I had forgotten the name of the dress, so it took me about twenty minutes to find it, but I figured it would do the trick. Well slap me upside the head and call me crazy, but I LOVE this dress. I think it is incredibly sexy, it uses the system elements well, and pulls in some great prim work in the skirts and collar. It came with Gloves, Stockings, and a pair of Shoes (Not Worn), and I do love the colour of course. It's a pretty darn sexy look, and I have to say, Draco really surprised me on this one, I need to take him shopping with me more often! I visited the AVid main store recently too, and if you are at all a fan of Goth Clothing, and have never been, you need to check it out. The styles are really unique and very different from what you might expect of Goth.
I decided I wanted to add a little more interest to the waist, so threw on this Gigi Couture 3 Buckle Belt as a way to echo the amazing buckles on these **C-Shoes** Fetish Heel Boots. These boots are some of my favorites with Goth Looks, they are just so fierce. I pulled on a favorite Necklace from -EARTHTONES-, the Heirloom Locket is completely customizable, you can add your picture to it, and then select your crystal colours from a list to make it work with pretty much all your favorite outfits. I choose this Black/Multi version, but it also comes in other metals. I like to have a lot of different lengths of Necklaces in my Jewelry Box, and this one goes really well with a deep v-neck. Hidden but worth mentioning are the Drifting Sands Tunnel Multi Set Earrings. Before really getting into fashion in-world, they were the first earrings I ever purchased, and I wore them every day for about six months. I added a little more edge with a simple Lip Ring from Red Ruin.
Can I just say I love this Wig! I found it while roaming the Isle of Tranquility SIM after a trip to amerie's NAUGHTY. This ElecTRo Kitty NEOKI style in Darling Black is just sexy and full, and really edgy, but the best part is that the style comes in a pack of three different colours. This skin is another sexy number from PXL, the sun-kissed Smokey Eyes and Ice Lips make-up is so sexy, I am really enjoying trying on these PXL Skins and hearing people's reactions, which are overwhelmingly positive. Bedroom Lashes by Cake, and Glassy Mustard Green Eyes from Freak Fantasia. A sexy Gothic look, that sidesteps the head-to-toe Black Trap, and allows you to sparkle like a Jewel in the Night.
