Fashion trends come and go, though good quality items stand the test of time. It takes a solid inventory cleaning to dig up some of the cool acquisitions of yesteryear…well, yester-month. With this look I’m going to revisit some of my favourite inventory items… with a new twist.

Something new: We begin with the skin, which I have just recently purchased from Belleza (raising a legless robot for a son, leaves me with little time to shop). It was with great hesitation that i decided to diversify my skin collection, for I had been more than content with my collection of Abyss skins. What got me about the Ewan Tan 5 Belleza skin, is the feature laden face with its oh-so-little beauty spot and freckle. The stubble fades into the chin-strap beard, giving it a really authentic look. You may notice (people keep telling me) that this skin has a very mature look (without looking like you should be thinking about your next botox treatment). Notably, it is really easy to take pictures in this skin. Some skins have a tendency to look fantastic in one light setting and leave you looking Skeletor’s understudy the next. Facelight on/off, night/day, this skin looks great whatever the conditions. More importantly, you may never need to uncheck that little atmospheric shaders box again.
Something old: The hair is Aitui: classically styled, understated, and nicely textured. The shirt and tie by Redgrave goes very nicely with the subtly textured cardigan from Armidi. Skinny-fit jeans from Armidi–what you can always expect from a reputable designer–are rich, deep colours with a great texture. I have never hesitated buying something at Armidi whose items are of unquestionable quality…and accessible to boot.
Something black: Kalnins Gallops–not much can be said about these that hasn’t already been said. A must have for any shoe connoisseur.
If you’re afraid of the something old, I picked up an inventory trick that will help you uncover those lost treasures. Try creating an “equipped” folder and sorting it by attachment points, themes or styles. Happy hunting!
