Homage in Pink to Jackie-O (sorta)

Snapshot_044.png

If you read me very often, you might quickly see that I’m somewhat drawn to pink and black together.  I have plenty of FREE things to show you in this post, a dollarbie, and a group gift from a group with a modest join fee of 25 lindens, but I want to show off this pink wool coat. The short coat and classic lines just spoke to try to make a little play on the classic Jackie-O pink suit.  If you’ve never seen the classic Jackie-O pink suit, and you love fashion, do yourself a favor and google it. It’s a reproduction of a Chanel Suit, line for line (with permission of course!), as the First Lady insisted on American Made. The now infamous suit, as she was wearing it the day of President Kennedy’s assassination, was a personal favorite of the President’s and was worn at least 6 times prior to Dallas.

As you can see, This “Retro Wool Jacket” from Poeme has a cossack collar,  not the classic collar of the Jackie-O.  It also is single breasted instead of double. The skirt is shorter, instead of nude stockings, I did something playful with fishnet and a thick pink stocking layered over, and obviously, I’m going to avoid pumps for a walk in the snow, so I’m wearing some fur-lined winter boots. I’ve changed up the coloring a bit, with a black skirt and Cossack hat, instead of a longer pink skirt and pillbox hat.

The “Retro Wool Jacket” from Poeme comes in 5 standard sizes,  8 colors, and is mod/copy.  An individual color will cost 139 lindens, whereas a fatpack of all 8 is 799 lindens.  I’m wearing “Candy.”  Poeme has all the colors on their flickr page, if you’d like to preview them before you decide to head down to the store. If you like this coat, I just got a notice that the group gift from Poeme just set out, is a special version of this coat in Turquoise.  The Poeme group is 1 linden to join, and gets you not only the new gift but access to lucky letters and group midnight mania!

The black “Mia” skirt I’ve paired with it, you can buy in a fatpack of 8 skirts from N-Uno on the marketplace. N-Uno has several dollarbie items currently on the marketplace, most are included in fatpacks, so check those first, then look again for individual items.

This black Cossack-style hat is from an outfit I won in a lucky chair at Brii Underground.  The Brii Underground group is FREE to join, which makes this lucky chair win cost only the time to wait for your letter.  I’ve included a full picture of the “Hanani Complet Outfit,” from head to toe on my flicker page.  That includes hat, makeup, dress, stockings, and boots.

The pink heart on black ribbon choker and matching earrings I picked up at Heartsdale Jewelry on a past weekly limited for 50 lidens, there are also two adorable bracelets, with the bows of the ribbons on the inner wrist in the package.  While this price is gone now, if you love the set, it’s for sale for 199 lindens.  Not a terrible price considering there are 4 pieces of jewelry in the set, making each 50 lindens.  The Weekly Limited group is FREE to join and is a great way to keep an eye on these low deals, as well as snag the gifts the stores set out for the group.

I just used an applied pair of black fishnet stockings that I’ve had in my inventory, I have several pairs, many from past Brii Underground gifts or lucky chair outfits.  For this look I didn’t want to have the fishnets showing on my feet peeking out of the pink stockings, so I used a pair of thigh length fishnet shorts from Sn@tch’s fishnet’s collection.  I picked this up in Birthright but seeing as that has passed, the entire collection can be picked up on the marketplace for 200 lindens.  The collection includes 5 tops, 5 bottoms, a bodysuit, stockings, and gloves.

Layered over these fishnets are a pair of footless socks from Tiar.  The “Babygirl socks pink” can be won for FREE by camping for 33 minutes in Tiar’s gift room.  From the landing point, move to the corner of the inner square that has the teleports and chose gifts.  While camping you can watch the 8 lucky letter boards to try to win more prizes during your time.  If you don’t care to camp, these socks can be purchased for 66 lindens in one of the shops out in the main area. When I peeked in today, there were new prizes on the lucky letters since my last trip!  Before you leave, search out the 7 Seas fountain in the courtyard and cast a few lines to reel in some clothes or gift cards!  I’ve been told there’s even a 500L gift card in there.

We’ve made it down to my feet!  I’m wearing the “Yeti Boots” which are group gift from KC Couture.  The KC Couture group is 25 lindens to join.  There are several gifts up, and the gift shoes, including these Yeti Boots, have really big color huds that allow you to customize different areas of the shoes.  There’s also group lucky letters and mini-manias, and group chat is often active in drumming up the folks to work these mini-manias!

Hair, nails, and makeup have been talked about in previous blogs, so consult the style card for that information!  Be sure to look though, there’s a dollarbie eyeshadow in there!
