Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo started out as a day to remember and celebrate the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla, but has since transformed into a day to celebrate Mexican culture.  I put this outfit together using mostly older items, but the Wonton Sude Fringe Jacket from the round of The Mens Dept that just opened today was really what I needed to bring it all together.  I also adjusted the newly-updated FATEstep Ziggy Chucks* (now available in an unrigged version so that you can manually adjust them) to be the colors of the Mexican flag, which matched them to the jacket and sombrero.  Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Hi there!  After having this domain name for about 10 months and meaning to start up a blog time and time again, I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and do it after some prodding from a few friends.  If you’d like to read a little bit more about me, my time in SL, and where I’m coming from, please feel free to read through the “About Me” tab to learn more about my journey.

Today, I’m blogging a simple outfit that highlights a few things I really like right now.  The shirt is from Scars and is at Fashion For Life, which is open now, as a donation item to raise money for Relay For Life.  This year’s Fashion For Life was the first time I heard of Scars, but I’ll certainly be visiting their main store.  The jeans are from Lenox, and were at an event last November.  Finally, the boots are from FATEstep, which just recently launched.  The Anthony boots* were something that I had been looking for for a very long time, but hadn’t been able to find.  I suggested them to Damien Fate, the creator behind FATEstep, and was completely shocked to find out that he named them and the leather version (the Matthew boots) after me.
