Mesh Mania!

“It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.” — Alexander McQueen

This week’s post for the Regina Blog features something I did in August 2011: a Guest Model! I’ve wanted to do more of this for a while, with fellow guest Reginas, guest male models, and even child models; and in the coming months, I’m going to ask more guest models (who may or may not be involved in the SL modeling scene) to join me in featuring certain looks.

Today, we focus on one of the most popular and current trends in SL Fashion: MESH. What is Mesh? From a visual point of view (I’m not a designer, so I’m speaking from a model’s point of view), mesh gives clothing, hair, and even shoes a more natural look, stretching with your avatar’s body form and movements, eliminating prims unnaturally cutting into the body like standard SL clothing. What I didn’t know was that there was a store on the SL grid that only sells mesh items: Cold Logic. It may not be the only store that does this (I’m still learning, btw), but I was highly impressed. This week’s guest model is my old buddy and fellow fashion aficionado, Mr. Dolla Dinzeo, who is a fashion icon in his own right. As I bring you a look led by a halter mini dress from Cold Logic, Mr. Dinzeo brings you an outfit for the guys that is great for a casual, spring afternoon. As always, the stylecards follow below. Enjoy! (Photographs taken at the Tree House Cafe SIM, please click pictures for a closer look!)

 THE LOOK:  AFTERNOON AT THE DOCK

On Paola: The detail in the top of this dress is lovely 😉 The white stripes against the watermelon hue is just great.

On Mr. Dinzeo: You can see the texture detail in the mesh jacket over the mesh shirt, a very smart, urban look, while he accessorizes very creatively with gold piercings, sunglasses, gloves and hand jewelry.
