Shamrocks and Shenanigans

Ok, I seriously was inclined to drag my arse and write my “ode to emerald” post fashionably late, like in a day or two, but Dove said if the cascade of green on the feed didn’t end soon, she might go postal, and truth be told, I'm kind of scared of her. So here it is, on time and just catching the end of Patty’s weekend…whoever the hell she was…

Normally, a couple of days bereft of the dark comfort of my leather would leave me shaking like a Chihuahua in the Canadian cold, but Rot. Designs somehow fed my jones with wool. The Broder Vest in Olive not only got me into today’s green parade, but unlike some of the hideous flora and fauna disguised as clothes, it actually looks great!! More layering today, this time starting with a long-sleeved, dressy olive shirt and tie combo - I really like the contrast the white collar adds to the look, and I love the “unbuttoned shirt, just waiting for the day to end, so I can throw off this fechin tie” feel!! I’m totally down with the deep green of the tailored heavy wool vest, and it keeps you looking hawt while hiding your pit stains…how’s that for functionality?? The shock of black on my head is wild greatness from Candy House, another ninja shopping find - I may be wearing a tie but my unruly, long locks and my Porn Star kicks tell anyone listening I'm not your dad's accountant!!

Determined not to wear my black Aitui Reborn slacks again, I grabbed my hidden forest pair instead!! Formal or just sipping coffee on the patio at Starbucks, pants like these are always there for you. Of course, if you are sitting on that patio as the low-lying sun starts to thaw out the frozen north, you seriously need good shades - to protect your eyes of course, and more importantly, to hide your obvious girl ogling. PrimOptic’s Arctic glasses to the rescue!! These brilliant glasses boast a mad array of built-in script changes, including a lens color of green!!! To keep me from being late for the first round of Guinness at the pub is my new Spiked Bracelet Watch from RICX…it's finely detailed, freaking cool and the spikes?? my favorite part! They just shout “I'm Lawless and I'm here to foight”!! Before I take off to go watch a movie with Dove (not ripped of course, lord forbid!) let me check my Patty’s day stereotype checklist - - hmmm...shamrocks, olive, forest, green and Guinness…looks good…I tink for good measure I could trow in a few potatoes, a pot of gold and a leprechaun (pronounced la-preach-kin for the uneducated)…and we're all good til next year!! Top of the evening to you!!

I am so glad to finally see this outfit posted. I loved it immediately when I saw you wearing it. It's tres chic and it's nice to see you branching ONCE in awhile from all black.

Happy St. Patty's Day to you Law!!

That last picture - the thickness of that vest is just... amazing. Such tailoring is rare in SL. How many sheep died to make that? A very well thought out ensemble, Lawless.

*Yes, I KNOW sheep don't die when they give wool...

I'll be happy if I don't have to see green again until next year. Or the year after. Or ..never. again. ever.

Sorry I haven't posted in so long, been suuuuper busy. I've missed some good stuff! This is probably one of my favorites I've seen you blog, lovin' the color coordination. Maybe it's because I'm half Irish, maybe it's because I just like green, maybe it's because I can simply respect a holiday where the goal is to get trashed.. I dunno, all I know, is I like that outfit. Aces, Law. Aces.
