There is one area in modeling where the men are eclipsing the women, and that is in experimenting with the clothes of the opposite sex. Mostly of the haute couture variety and a little self-explanatory since there are probably 6 designers of womens clothes for every 1 designer of mens, but it is something to think about. To be honest, I actually enjoy blogging men’s wear. I’ve only done it once before, when I blogged the Sartoria design line, Link: but its still fun. So when I saw the new “Nautical Suit” by Gizza, it was on!
I think the idea is, “go with the flow” and never fear experimenting with fashion. You may fail epically, but who cares? You did something no one else has done and put yourself a little ahead of the group by making your own way. When I thought about doing this, I ordered the demo version of the shirt at the marketplace and checked the size, a little big, but thats what you’d expect when you are wearing your boyfriends shirt. Instead of the baggy men’s pants, I chose to keep it girly by wearings Gizza’s short mesh jean shorts, also new! The perfect get up for a day of sailing. Oh, yeah, hmmm, does anyone have a boat?
On the more serious side, I suppose. It’s that time of year again! It’s time for the Vintage Fair. Here is the link to the map and SLURL’s for the event: Link: Vintage is always a fun event because you can explore the fashion of so many different era’s and this year should be the best ever because I noticed there are so many designer’s involved! Vintage Fair (from 4pm, Aug 4th – Aug 29th) will showcase 250+ brands each exploring inspiration from the vintage eras of 1920 – 1980. Also this year will have ‘Antique’ fashions (pre 1920s). With new and exclusive items from every brand involved and music every day. This is a CHIC Management SL event and will be held over 3 sims. My only advise is go “low prim.” Heck, I’ve been known to take everything off, including AO and put on a complete alpha texture so I can move about with no prims and invisible. Hey, what can I say, I’m a serious shopper.
Gizza is going to have a black version of this “Elegant Steps” women’s suit at the Vintage Fair, as well as other items. This is such a classically elegant outfit with its laced bodice, knee length skirt with ruffled belt. It’s one of those outfits you can wear to so many different events because it is dressy yet not overly done. And I’ve never seen anyone who can do better vintage jewelry than Donna Flora, I think it pairs very well with the Elegant Steps suit, don’t you?
But then, that’s the point of the title of today’s blog. I can talk about the quality of Gizza and all of these designers until I am blue in the face (not a good color on a Cao, by the way) but there is no need to talk about Gizza, because Giz Seorn’s designs are always high in quality and well done.
