Creating A Hippy Look In SL

I love finding new releases and new designers but what I also love doing, almost as a game, is to find a theme myself and attempt at creating certain looks based on these themes. Lately, I’ve been having more enthusiasm in doing this and the more challenging the theme, the more fun I seem to get. This time, it all started from spotting a “hippy style” looking top by Apple May. The moment I spotted this top, the first thing that came to my mind was “ooh this would look nice in a hippy look” and the next moment, my mind had already latched on this fun idea.

This top came in a set of three colours, which I must say, was a little disappointing. I would rather spend my money on buying different outfits than buying the same top in three different colours. But this was definitely not being sold as a fat pack and there was no other vendor selling individual colours so I ended up having to buy all the colours.

For this particular styling I had to make a hippy look so I decided to use the purple one. In more accurate terms, I didn’t HAVE to make a hippy look and nobody was telling me to do so, but as I said, once I had my mind set on certain themes, it was hard to shake it off. So in my mind, it was a must.

I tried several different pairs of jeans but this one from Jador Fashion that had some pink based colour in it seemed to work better to create a “flower children” look. And of course, I had to use this hair from Lelutka with a head band (or rather….string?) and my shoes had to be flat sandals. I found these sandals in my inventory which fit my image perfectly but unfortunately, I had bought them a long time ago which was way before I even thought of starting to blog. So I never cared that a landmark was missing. And now, I can’t even remember where I got these sandals from. Damn. I would be grateful if any of you who might be reading this might know where these came from and let me know. I even tried searching with the name I saw on the folder but I had no success. 😦

Every time I do this styling game, I seem to find something that was buried deep inside my ocean-deep inventory that I had somehow forgotten that I even had them. This time, it was these sandals and I feel as excited as if I won these on a lucky chair. Aah yes and nails. I mustn’t wear coloured nail polish with this look. I have to try to make things look as “natural” as possible. So I decided to go with french nails, which is pink + white tips.

And to finish it off, I needed a skin with very little make up and some accessories that reminded me of nature. A flower choker, bracelet and earrings set I found in Chambre de Chocolat before Eshi Otawara renamed her store to bear her name, was something I could use.

I was finally able to make a “hippy look” by scrambling into my inventory and buying nothing but the loose top that initially made me go after this look.
