I am slowly moving from summer to winter through the beautiful colors of fall and coming to grips with what’s coming up.
I know I have flogged the autumn theme to death but I really love fall. I love the colors, the fact that you can layer on more clothes, that you sleep so deeply in the cool air. I can pull out a nice turtleneck sweater, like this one from Jamie Holmer, and wear it! This sweater is great too because the hem is not a big poofy, frumpy piece but a shaped hem around the hips with great use of shadows and light to emphasize the shape. I really hate those frumpy sculpty sweater bottoms.
My skirt is a cutie from Kyon Torok, who has several cute pieces for low prices. And I popped a little extra color in with a bright yellow scarf from hiwinyu Fazuku and tights from Yurin Wirefly. Finally, I don some old but STILL amazing boots from Fallingwater Cellardoor. All prim (no sculpties)!
I am wearing Mallory Cowen’s absolutely gorgeous new skin, Lovisa. This is a dicey skin because it could easily look very young on the wrong shape (which is no different than how redheads are in RL—with pale skin and no makeup and a round face, a young look is inevitable). Mallory generously gives us very minimal makeup skins in this set and we are allowed to dress up as we please. That’s why I wore one of her eyeliners to push this skin over the legal age.
I top it all off with one of Truth Hawks’ newest hairs, and I have to say that his true forte is with these long wavy styles. I put this on and knew this was going to be one of my favorite styles. OK, yeah, I admit it. My SL fantasy includes having long wavy red hair just like this. Gorgeous!
Fiery colors begin their yearly conquest of the hills, propelled by the autumn winds. Fall is the artist. ~ Takayuki Ikkaku
