I love to look ship shape and adore retro/vintage styles. Mr. X found a great outfit at SOS, a benefit for Doctors without Borders called Ari Dress by [Witchcraft] that is a must-have. It is perfect for a sock hop, a retro sim or a casually cool day or night out. Itis sassy and sweet just like me, or so Mr. X tells me
The nautical inspiration in fashion has endured over many decades and was made popular in the 1940s and has gone through a cool retro vibe today. Interestingly enough the influence of sailor garb on us landlubbers' is attributed to Queen Victoria. Back in 1846, Queen Victoria had a sailor suit made for her son Albert Edward, Prince of Wales to wear aboard the Royal Yacht! Eventually, this style made its way to high society ladies in the 18th and 19th century and it continually evolved. There have been so many reincarnations of the seafarer's style starting with Chanel and reinvented by many top designers - Westwood, Gaultier, Lauren and many others.
I fell in love with the cross-generational timeless nautical-inspired style by [Witchcraft) that is an exclusive at SOS. It includes a cute mid-length skirt with distinctive brass buttons and a boat-necked shirt with a sailor collar and tie. Ari is made for slink and Maitreya mesh bodies. I love the red and white color pattern that makes me look and feel shipshape! I also love the back of the top that ties in a neat bow!
I paired Ari with the lipgloss by DS that comes in six colors and can be worn by catwa and lelultuka mesh heads and classic heads. I love every shade offered. Best of all this lipstick and eyeshadow sold separately is 100% donation.
