School Days

School’s in. Pencils, backpacks, crushed peanut butter sandwiches, the smell of crayons and chalk. Soon the air will have a crisp edge to it. So school clothes are called for.

There is something still so cute about the plaid skirt with a cardigan, especially when it’s done in schoolgirl style as tama Clowes has done. This darling set includes a textured tank top underneath and a well done skirt (the prims line up with the system piece excellently).

This sweet little ensemble needs lots of accessories. I chose this groovy bag from onakagoo Waco at ArtMeter that has art pieces that switch on the closing flap (wearable art). I used Krius Misfit’s jade necklace as a choker—you don’t always have to make SiniStyle sinister.

I made this outfit around Siddean Munro’s hair. She is starting to really kick hair butt (that sounds so wrong but I am leaving it). Her hair coloring “Contraption” (love that word) makes choosing hair color easy. You choose it when you want it and not at the store—and you aren’t left with 20 other hairs in your inventory that you will NEVER wear (*looks at the sky blue, celadon, and amethyst she got in other fat packs that she fears trashing in case she MAY someday need one*). I paired it with Pulse’s very fresh and freckled Climax skin.

Iki Ikarus’ whimsical socks make the look complete with Fallingwater Cellardoor’s scrunchy flat soled boots in acid green.

Stroll Down the Rue de Rivoli

Ever see those beautiful young ladies you see walking around in every city, casually fashionable, beautiful in their hurry to yoga class/art studio/poetry reading? They throw on whatever’s on the floor and it all goes together and looks fantastic. I want to be one of those girls. So I made myself one of them. The only thing I am missing is a huge handbag and brown cardboard-sheathed cup of coffee or bottle of Evian water.

This sweater from sato Yifu is one of my favorite pieces. It’s a sweater I would wear in RL with its nubby texture and draped collar. It’s so bohemian and smart at the same time. I paired it with sexy leggings from Iki Ikarus, and chunky crafty earrings from Maeve Mortlock (my heroine of the 59L earrings).

My hair’s up in a sweet pony tail from Hal*Hina (pulled from a special promotion they are currently offering that I read about in Beanie’s blog). The patchwork scarf is from the funky Sari Telling and also a piece I would wear in RL. I LOVE scarves.

And oh, JB, my dear JB. These cowboy boots are killer. Again, let me ramble on about his terrific textures and his great sculpties, the versatility, and the color changing included. (Yes, I got the full monty in the boots—the pair with all eight colors.)
