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.

Jacket Weather

The chill has hit the air but not in an unwelcome way. I remember when fall started and I was SO excited to bring out my new fall school clothes—the new cute sweater, the fashionable jacket, shiny shoes.

Jacket Weather

I just got this new sweater from Shelly Toonie, who is releasing this whole set with a great set of colorways and combos as if they are knit from variegated yarn (yes still stuck on this knitting thing). The skirt is a wonderfully textured sculpty from Maya Levane, who has combined the best of of a pleated look into a skirt that moves pretty well on the avatar considering it’s a sculpty. My jacket is from last spring but does well in the fall as well as the chill comes in the air. Toraji Voom has made a very versatile piece. A little scarf around my neck to keep the chill out thanks to Milla Michinaga, and I am set to go.

Jacket Weather

What turns this outfit on its head are the striped tights from Allegory Malaprop and the coordinating flats from Fallingwater Cellardoor. Fallingwater, as long as she has been in this game, still makes wonderful content and pays attention to all the smallest details. These little shoes are lovely. Thanks to Zeerya Pyrithea for the earrings.

Finally my skin, glowing and young with bee stung lips, comes from the mind and talented digital make-up artistry of Gala Phoenix. And though the hair is named “Lost” by Lamb Bellic, I will find my way home.
