Amanda Lepore, "I don't know much about clothes, but my hair looks fierce." I'd like to think that today I look almost as fierce as Ms. Lepore, courtesy of some new hair and a new vest.
I don't often get inspired to go on a selfie fashion shoot, but you know, it's kind of fun. I went to a bar called "The Hole" that's part of Cox Leather Land to see if I could get some biker-like atmosphere. No bikes or bikers in sight, but there was a lot of enigmatic-looking furniture that I thought made for some interesting pictures.
I liked this biker vest a lot when I saw it here while glancing through fashion blogs today, and more than one blog at that, so I went and bought one. It's the Wastrel Leather Vest, rigged mesh from Dozze, designed by Zevock Trenkins, and feels very comfortable. Beautiful textures and cut for a muscular shape. It fits well with the included alpha and I had no problems with their XL size, which is sometimes the case from other designers. You have your choice of 4 colours at L$345 (black, brown, grey, red) and the fatpack for L$830. Each vest comes with ten choices of colour via HUD for the underlying T-shirt, which alas is mandatory, but the T-shirt textures and colours are elegantly understated. Dozze apparently sells only in Marketplace and the store is found here.
The Dozze store is worth looking at for a couple of reasons, one of which is, this is how you organize a store on Marketplace, so if you are floundering, here is a good model to follow. There are a couple of hundred items representing various colour choices of a limited range of garments, and each has its easily accessed demo and affiliated fatpack.
There seems to be a lot of good thought and perhaps some real-life experience behind this line, and I intend to keep an eye on Dozze. Check it out.
