I need you

Baby take a good look at my face. You know my smile looks out of place.

Out on the town

As the U.S. springs forward, I thought I’d step out on the town dressed for windy pre-spring weather for some distraction-free me time.  Just me today, out and about, with no one to chase through the toy department or extract from underneath the clothing racks.  No one pestering about “are we done yet?” or nudging me for ice cream.  As much as I love them, sometimes I appreciate them even more after a little me time.

Today is about a little power shopping with a focus on finding a great statement accessory.  In this case, my impact item is a snazzy scarf from Shine, pulling together the wines, blacks, and purples in my outfit so harmoniously. March may bluster, but I’m cruising, feeling relaxed and unhurried.

In command of the season

Funny how when the weather begins to change, the things we desire begin to change as well.  Now that fall is approaching I find myself wanting to make homemade baked potato soup and apple pie, and indulge in other comfort foods that were just too hearty for summer fare.  I also find myself playing with clothing layers; and nothing speaks of fall louder to me than plaids.

In the Commander Coatdress from Zanze House of Couture, you will feel ready for the season.  This is a wonderful layering piece, available in 5 different versions, and just begging to be paired with turtlenecks, scarfs, or even a lacy collar.   I’m not sure if you’ve heard or not, but tights are in this year.  I chose to pull some of the blue out of the plaid stitching of the coat with royal blue Gizza tights.  And even though I’m usually brunette, I’m feeling in command of the season with a bright dollop of auburn curls from EMO-tions, since hair can be just as much a layering piece in SL as clothes and jewelry.  Finishing my look is a playful tote bag from Lush Limited with a trend towards the fun “geek chic” with its proclamation; “Dear Algebra, Stop asking me to solve your “X” problem.  Clearly she doesn’t want you.”

The eyes have it

This flirty little number is all about the eyes, mixing fluffy, soft and sultry into a wonderful summer-into-fall casual outfit.  Brand new from Molichino to celebrate their first year anniversary is the relaxed tunic, a short-sleeved sweater available in a range of colors with a mix-and-match fur collar that veils the lower half of the face, bringing the focus on the eyes.  This tunic works great alone as a mini dress when paired with some boots, and is also great for layering over your favorite tights or leggings.

And since this outfit is really all about the eyes, why not have some fun with bold, dramatic eye makeups?  I chose Madrid Solo’s Guilty Pleasures, available this month at Gypset Market, for a sultry sparkle, then framed my eyes further with loose and wild curls from EMO-tions.

Rev up your engines

Before this recent style challenge, I don’t think I owned a thing with skulls on it.  That was why I had to take up this challenge and give it a whirl when I learned about InWorld’s Biker Rave Party.  I had such fun styling this outfit, which was way out of my norm.  But then, that is one of the joys of SL Fashion…the ability to remake yourself and slip into a role.

So, first course of business, the leather jacket.  I found this awesome detailed woman’s urban leather jacket from Lapointe and Bastchild, and had a tough time deciding between the Morte version, or the UK flag version, but the Madrid Solo tattoo helped me finalize that decision.  Ahoy hair from Secrets was perfect, with its mesh braids framing the face, and color-change bandana.  Finally, add a corset from NV Corsetry, leather Gizza pants, and silver Redgrave biker boots, and there before me was a badass biker girl.

Rev up your engines and be sure to mark your calender for the InWorld New Gen Biker Rave party on September 29th at 3pm.

A Bright Bouquet from Molichino for Fifty Linden Fridays

Molichino has remade the Pixie dress especially for Fifty Linden Fridays on August 24th with a bouquet of flowers scattered over the skirt, and a solid navy top.  This stunning dress is what I consider transition clothing, an outfit that takes you from one season into the next, interestingly nautical in its color scheme, yet garden fresh at the same time.    I’ve been accused of liking color, and I guess that is true, because to me this combination is Cute…with a capital “C.”

The Pixie dress, with its wide squared neckline, is perfect for accenting with lovely necklaces, scarves and hats.  I chose a vintage hat/hair combo from Clawtooth and a red and white flower scarf from Gizza, then had fun playing with primary colored makeup layers, combining two different eyes from Face Paint and cherry lips from Izzie’s for a bright and happy ensemble that waves goodbye to summer and welcomes in the fall.

Boyfriend Sweater

It was a brisk summer night near the water, and I was walking hand in hand with that man I love.  He noticed me shiver.  Was it from the evening breeze, or just because he was near?  No matter, he took off his sweater and wrapped it around my shoulders.  At the end of the evening, I could have given it back, but it was warm and smelled like him.  So I pretended to “forget,” so I could stay wrapped in him just a little longer.
