Why We Love Fall (And You Should, Too!)

Fall Shopping Day

Fall isn’t just about pumpkin lattes and Halloween. Some stores do have Christmas stuff out already. All joking aside, this turning of the season also means that it is time to shop for new clothes! Shopping is a favorite pastime for most people that I know. And the beginning of the month means new product and sales are awaiting us!

Neve is participating in the MIX event with two new mesh dresses. The one I have on today is Acute and comes in four different textures (plaid/floral/lively/neutral). Each texture pack that you buy comes with a four color hud. These colors are great for the fall season. The color of the belt can also be changed, or you can remove it from the dress. Neve mesh clothes are made to fit Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Slink Physique, and the classic avatar.

My gorgeous flowing locks are by Mina. She is one of the great sought after hair dressers in Second Life. This hairstyle is called Laila and is 50% off for the MIX event this month. Working our way down to the dazzling necklace I am wearing is ANE Angel Heart Necklace in diamond/silver. The bags are both from ROWNE and Zenith gachas. I love purses and these are really outstanding. I want to take the time to say that ROWNE has outstanding customer service. I rezzed this bag for decor and it poofed. Gone. So I contacted their customer service agent, Justice Topaz, and she sent me a new replacement! Apparently ROWNE bags cannot be rezzed, so do not try it.

And finally down to the feet we have Ingenue Astrid and Ninette Heels. The Ninette Heels were just on sale for FLF. Hope you were able to grab them. Betty Doyle is an outstanding footwear designer. I wish she would try and make clothes again. My powder blue classic stiletto heels are Sutra II from AlaskaMetro and matches perfectly with the outfit.

How Am I Supposed To Wear These Jeans Without My Mesh Body?

Falling for Fall

I am trying to fall into fall by wearing warm colors and surrounding myself with changing leaves. Recently I picked up the new mesh Foxes Sweater Dress which is made for the Maitreya Lara body. I decided to pair it up with the Miya jeans from Alaskametro. The jeans are made for the classic avatar, TMP, Slink, and also comes with Omega appliers. I am an Omega applier system noob, but Alaska has shown me the ways. In the picture I am actually using the classic avatar because I didn’t know about the appliers then. I love my mesh body and I’m happy to learn that there are even more ways to dress myself up!

Falling for fall

My gorgeous chunky necklace was made by Modern Couture Jewelry. This is the Soraya necklace and earrings in gold. It is available at The Dressing Room Fusion. This jewelry designer has become a favorite of mine. You can get the Freja sandals by Ingenue at The Arcade. What makes these so different than her other pairs of shoes is the hud. This one pair of shoes can fit the Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya body. Just by choosing which body you are wearing on a hud. No more having an overload of shoes that you don’t need in your inventory! Also coming from The Arcade is my Pink Fuel Morgana skin and sexy Lamb Date Night hairstyle. I love this look for fall!

Now I am going to try to explain the Omega Applier System in case you aren’t aware of what it is. The system allows you to wear most appliers with whichever mesh body you own. Take these jeans for example. I looked through the unpacked folder and saw appliers for TMP, Slink, and Omega. There are also classic avatar clothing layers. I don’t own the TMP or Slink body. I thought Omega was another mesh body that I didn’t have. But nooo, the Omega applier system is a hud that allows you to wear appliers on your mesh bodies. With this I could wear the jeans as an applier on my Maitreya Lara body. I could choose from Pants Undies, or Tattoo layer. I couldn’t have been more happy to learn this! You do have to buy the Omega Applier System kit for your type of mesh body at their store, but it is priced really reasonable.

Going to the Beach House with my Boogers

Summer Retreat

Hanging out at the new Dust Bunny summer retreat on this bright summer day. I love the feel of the sun on my skin. Warmth is a feeling that makes me more comfortable and at ease. The cold of winter is very difficult to deal with. Luckily in Second Life it can be whatever season we prefer at the moment.

I have just started decorating the Dust Bunny daisy shack with my new Arcade and Summerfest finds. The set will be complete with just a couple more things. The fresh strawberry water seems to be the hardest to find, but thanks to Annaluisa Bertolucci I have that now (thank you!!). lxlnoel of Dust Bunny creates these amazing sets for the Arcade. You can tell that her products are quite popular, as the extras from trying to get that rare item pile up at yardsales. From the Summerfest event I have Windsong’s wooden signs and snapshot surfboard. You add four of your own pictures to the front of the decorated board. Sitting and playing in the sand are the darling Boogers bears. These are some of my favorite bears so far.

Summer Retreat

My summery outfit is from ColdLogic. The mesh top and skirt are separate pieces. This is a super pretty and fun dress for the summer. The shoes are Carmen Wedges from Ingenue. I cannot get enough of Betty Doyle’s perfectly designed shoes. This gorgeous hair is from Exile, and I have kept the hibiscus attachment on from the Truth Damaris hair. My poses come from !bang, and are for The Conquest event. They were made to wear with a gown, but I like how they look here in this scene. The legs are positioned so they will not poke through your gown.

Hope you can come join us at the beach house soon!

Jewelry Trip

I am going to try and focus at least once or twice a month on jewelry. I would hope that I know a thing or two about jewelry in SecondLife since I made it for over 10 years. Finding hair and poses that show off your jewelry can be hard. It is great when you can find a hair that shows off the ears for your earrings, and doesn’t cover up too much of the chest where your necklace lies. I’ll try and help you find ones that work.

The three mesh necklaces in this post are from ANE. The first necklace is The Fool necklace found at the Tarot event. This piece is a little edgy with the spikes. In the middle, the Moth Wings Let it Go necklace can be worn with the words or just with all moth wings. Very pretty and easy to wear with most anything. My favorite of the three is the Botanical necklace. I really love delicate necklaces and wear them in real life. This is also more the style that I stuck to when I made jewelry.

For these shots I used !bang poses 475-479 pack, which can be found at the Shiny Shabby event. The poses I chose for the shots have the model standing upright with a slight turn to the left and the right.

I have never worn Moon hair before, but I loved this one so much that I had to have it. This hairstyle is swept to one side allowing one of the ears to showcase your earrings, and it has ample room for the necklace on the chest. I bought this at Uber in the variety pack because I needed all of the colors.

The off the shoulder dress is from Tee*fy. A dress in this style works really well with necklaces that lay on your upper chest. The dress texture was too busy for the long necklace. The piece gets lost in the chevron print. I chose my Tres Blah Angora sweater to wear with that. Both the dress and the top are at Collabor88 for a few more days. Very few. You should be able to find them later at the mainstore, and you can find the locations on my slurls page.

Because I also love to decorate! The rectangular framed pictures are from Trompe Loeil at FaMESHed. The rest of the decor is from Apple Fall. Caroline is getting ready to go on a trip. She has her map out for last minute planning, luggage packed, and is grabbing a quick bite of a muffin before hitting the subway.
