Meetings

I have been attending lots of meetings lately.

Meetings

For meetings, it’s best to leave off the bling and the tight revealing miniskirt and the fringed bra. It’s best to be remembered for your contributions and not your apparel. That’s why I wear this pretty but conservative ensemble which starts with the jacket from MariaElena Barbosa’s Marlene set. It has elements that are photosourced and it’s well constructed with a peplum skirt and smart cuffs. My skirt is a pretty one from como Setsuko, who has a whole gatcha full of these skirts. Shoes are a conservative and pleasing silhouette from Fallingwater Cellardoor. (I just love Fallingwater’s shoes—they are classy and versatile. I could see this pair working with a very sexy outfit just as easily.)

Meetings

My skin is from Kira Ahn’s sale at dekade. I really liked the Vivienne set in the Bardot line. It’s sophisticated, mature and beautiful with a variety of makeups. Pick it up before Kira’s sale ends because once it’s gone, I presume it’s gone. Earrings are pretty little baubles from Delora Starbrook and I pulled my hair up in a ponytail from Parvarti Monday. Easy peasy.

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.

(I won’t really be shopping—probably sleeping and knitting and reading books by the pool.)
