Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
You know what is one of the things I love about winter? It’s TOQUE SEASON! Ok, granted this post isn’t about a toque, it IS about a hat. I have no idea if this is a new release or not but when I was searching the MP for mesh hats, I came across Argrace’s Equestrian Cap. I’m so happy Argrace is getting into mesh (I love the Fedora they had out for Hair Fair 2012). Like previous hats, the Equestrian Cap is available in 3 different hair styles as well as just the cap itself. It was a long debate between the 3 styles but I decided on Fiona. The cap is texture changeable with 5 colour options which makes it great for anything. (And yes, I’m rocking the mesh head again!)
On June 4 2012 CHIC will be two years old. To celebrate there will be a small venue based event…and it’s small..but GREAT! No lag walking for hours! Small in size but not quality because 150 of the best brands will have one new, exclusive item with the theme of CHIC (obviously, it’s to celebrate CHIC after all!) The event opens…..TOMORROW! Yup, June 3rd until the 24th is when you can celebrate by spending all your $L on great items.

On Plurk (did you know I have a plurk account?), Harlow Heslop mentioned a store called Town that has some cute mesh tops. I decided to head over and was a little bit disappointed because there’s no demos available! If a product is mesh, HAVE A DEMO OUT! Seriously. Would you go to a store in RL and just buy something without trying it on? No, you wouldn’t.
That being said though, against my better judgment, I did pick up the Mini Top Model 4. It’s cute…it’s got a resizer…but I doubt I’ll ever wear it again. The top is either HUGE to fit around my boobs, or goes into my back when it’s “normal” size and I even modified my shape to make my chest smaller. Maybe the other tops have a better fit but buy at your own risk.
Have you noticed the lack of belts now that everyone is trending the mesh jeans from Maitreya or Mon Tissu or wherever? Well, I still love my belts and I especially love the new Squaring of the Circle from Scrub. The detail is just great and the metal ring in the back gives it some chicness. Definitely check out Scrub when you get the chance.
