The Out-of-Towner

When you read this I will be long gone, out of town, enjoying the pleasures of a full-amenity resort, while you, dear reader will be stuck at home in your jammies, reading my blog. (Actually, ok… it’s a water park we’re going to, and I don’t swim. Don’t envy me TOO much.)

the Out-of Towner

So while they swim, I will be out and about shopping. I realize this is not resort wear per se, but I am one of those uptight city ladies, ‘k? I don’t *do* flip flops. This jacket from toraji Voom is perfect for a weekend “in the country,” as I prefer to think of it. Woolen and warm, tailored and worn, this jacket travels well from city to country and back. I wear a swingy skirt from como Setsuko, flirty and autumnal and fun. Warm tights from Visa Volare keep my legs warm as the season turns to the cold.

This ever-versatile scarf from hiwinyu Fazuku keeps my neck warm. (Now, when I went to Paris, I wondered about scarves around the neck—were they fashion or function? I found out that one scarf around the neck can keep a person very warm without having to put in a heavy coat.) Yes, I realize my purse from Irie Campese is huge. I have my knitting in there, thank you, my iPad, kleenex, money, credit cards, sunglasses, a bottle of water, a granola bar, brochures, a map, umbrella, gum.. and a bundle of receipts ;)

the Out-of Towner

My skin is beautifully provided by Joakim Asbrink, who fashions her skins after international stars with a few change-ups. This one, named after the elegant First Lady of France, has beautiful autumnal coloring. The eyebrows are well shaped, the eye makeup is artistically done. My earrings are from Abraxxa Anatine’s skillful hands, certainly a pair that might be found in a high-end art jewelry shop on my travels. And I keep my new hair from Truth Hawks in place with his ingenious color-change hair band.

The weather’s still warm but any afternoon it might turn a little chilly, so this little dress from Nyte Caligari is a perfect choice. Under the cute shrug is a spaghetti strap top. Wear the shrug to walk to your destination; shrug it off when it gets warm. I love Nyte’s simple basic styles—she was one of the first to offer casual outfits and separates on the grid and she still knows how to do it. The knee socks add a sexy and warm touch.

I wear a necklace from Adria Joubert, who is one of the featured designers at the 2010 Jewelry Fair. It’s a simple piece—a pendant, but do you need much more here? My hair is from the 10-10-10 going on at 10 stores on the grid. This is Truth’s offering for all comers—the simple and perfect Padma. (Hint: his terrific tanks are being offered at Callie Cline’s place—you don’t need to go to Truth for the hair either—it’s in all the vendor’s for the 10-10-10 event.)

My favorite part of this outfit are my shoes, which are new from Fallingwater Cellardoor. Another one of those veterans of the grid, Fallingwater has always offered beautiful practical shoes—shoes that make outfits work, shoes that are not encumbered by 100 scripts or bling or flashiness. They are elegant, sometimes funky, always wearable. This t-strap is no exception (and thank you for making a t-strap, Fallingwater, because I am always looking for a good one). Look closely (as you would a fine shoe.. a Manolo Blahnik, as my friend KK does..). Smell the leather. See the fine craftswomanship.
