Look of the Day (a naturist accessory posting)

sln5 loose top_001b

Other SL blogs will regularly do a ‘LOTD’ post -the ‘look of the day’, wherein a model is posed in clothes that are new to SL, and assembled for a look as unique or individual as each avatar. Hitherto a look of the day isn’t something we’ve necessarily aspired to, preferring no clothes in our posts 🙂

However, I’ve decided that we should relax this hitherto unwritten rule thanks to SLN reader Pru, who assembled a look out of current free gifts that she felt would fit with our ‘naturist wardrobe’ posts. The loose top is, very much, a naturist lady’s type of evening wear. Loose, airy and sexy. In the photo above you can see that it’s going to be worn without a bra and now that it has been pointed out by Pru, yes, I do feel that the style is very much naturist wardrobe, the sort of thing ladies will wear in restaurants and, on more occasions than I can recall, probably end up showing a nipple here and there. Yes, Pru! An ideal naturist wardrobe addition. It’s currently a free gift at Black Swan. (no group joining fee, either)

The hair worn by Pru in this is also a free group gift from Boon Hair. Pru says ‘I like it because it puts me in mind of those elfin-faced, slim and petite naturist ladies we all encounter from time to time who wear boyish hairstyles to match their boyish figures. Again, well spotted. Such small, slim naturist ladies are regularly apparent in naturist locations. Indeed, this is a look that will be familiar on young naturist Mums. I’m not sure why, but yes, many young, naturist mothers with elfin figures will often sport a similar type of look. Don’t believe me? Look around next time you’re on the beach. I’ll bet you can spot a couple of petite Mums who have hairstyles very similar to this.

Pru adds that ‘I decided to show a bit of skin for the sake of SLN in the final photo, and because I don’t ever recall you blogging this pubic hair. It’s L$289, from Miss Canning, and only on the Marketplace, as far as I know’.

I did some quick research and couldn’t find it in Miss Canning’s inworld store, but it is on the Marketplace in a fat pack of eight different pubic hair styles. Pru’s correct. It’s not something we’ve blogged before, but thanks for pointing it out to us. We’ll blog on the full set in the near future.

If you’ve got an idea for a ‘look of the day’ which broadly fits into a naturist theme, that is, it has a look and feel that reflects ‘ladies dressed up to go out for dinner while on vacation’, and can be assembled for free (mostly), please don’t be shy! Throw something together, in a notecard or email, and we’ll certainly add it to the ‘naturist suitcase’ that is easily going to go over that 25kg suitcase limit favoured by budget airlines. Never mind the excess baggage charge ladies, we’ll look fabulously dressed by night, and fabulously nude by day.

Editorial update

I hope you’re all enjoying Daphne’s look on how to fill a suitcase, specifically for a naturist holiday -cool and sexy evening wear, mostly- but with clothes that will also suit ‘textiles’ (clothes wearing holiday makers). I have to say I’m looking forward to seeing what she brings us, and how we fill that suitcase, over the next few months. I’ve already spotted a couple of items that really would suit my own RL ‘naturist suitcase’, that chemise in particular. Yes, I know it’s not ‘naturist’, but for anyone who has ever been on a naturist holiday, the sense of ‘evening glam’ should certainly resonate because we -naturist ladies- do love a bit of glamorous dressing up in the evening. I’ve already laid aside a folder in my inventory specifically to store the said items I particularly like, and when I get out to Spain, for real, in June I’ll endeavour to wear them in some of the ‘postcards’ posts I’ll be offering, just to reflect my RL naturist holiday evenings and, if Daphne gets around to it, beach wear as well. As I’ve said, often, it’s not naturism 24-7 even on a naturist holiday. That chemise Daphne showed would be typical nightwear for me…or more accurately, typical early morning wear. Until the sun gets up and going, the mornings can have a bit of a chill to them, and so terrace breakfasts often require something to be put on.

In other news, I’m going to be holding my first ‘surgery’ on Monday night, at Eden, at our office, and immediate surroundings, and as promised I’m going to try to make it a ‘late night’ one, in the hope that more of our north American friends and readers can drop by. So that will commence at 11pm (UK time) on Monday evening, and go on until…I’m falling asleep, basically. Midnight, 1am, 2am…I’m not putting a time on it!

Let me draw your attention to the graphic (below) currently doing the rounds on several naturist tumblr sites, and brought to my attention by Harry.

What do you think? An accurate reflection? It’s hard to tell just how accurate the figures might be, it would depend on the size of the poll, and the age-range, and other factors.

My interpretation is (and always has been) that pubic topiary, or removal, has been driven by the porn industry, where shaving made for more graphic movies. And my interpretation is that women, and men too, have been led sheep-like to follow a fashion, follow a trend. This is strange from a naturist point of view, as to why so many of us have slavishly followed a fashion trend. Surely naturism is about being an individual, not being someone driven by the fashion (and certainly porn) industries.

Is pubic hair doomed? Will the wheel come full circle? I’d love to hear your opinions on the pubic hair issue. Maybe it’s something we can talk about at the surgery on Monday night.

See you then?

Ella.
