I have to say I LOVED the third styling challenge issued by Style Kingdom. The theme was Gareth Pugh winter inspired. We were given this video to watch: Gareth Pugh Autumn Winter 2013 Runway Collection. I was completely entranced. I lost track of how many times I watched the video, taking in every bit of it, and then madly searching SL for anything remotely similar. To all the designers out there, I would LOVE a jacket in the style of any of the ones in the video. I looked all over SL for one like those that dominated the runway in that show, and sadly none could be found. However, I did find a lovely jacket that helped me pull off a Gareth Pugh inspired winter look.

dress > Paper Couture – Victoria in black
jacket > [sYs] MORPHEO – jacket F (black)
gloves > .Shi : Fingerless Gloves [Female] *RARE* @ The September Arcade
hair > (red)Mint Hair No.14’13 ~ Black
eyeshadow > Zibska – EmilyTries ~ Black
lipstick > [mock] Mizu Chrome Lip Gloss (1) (Lip only)
On the whole I did well on the challenge. (You can see the results here.) The judges were very complimentary in their comments. SL however seemed to think a “noob” turn would compliment the look, and the judges disagreed, costing me some valuable points. I am disappointed that an SL glitch would cost me points, but what’s done is done. I am still in good standing with the judges and I look forward to the final challenge!
As always, thank you for reading!
