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.

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.

Fur Chic

One of the things a girl always wants is a chic fur coat. In SL, it’s possible to have a fur that is chic and doesn’t hurt any animals (except pixel ones).

Fur Chic

This cute little bolero jacket from Mavis McGettigan was sitting in my inventory, waiting for a moment when I needed that touch of chic, and when I pulled it out today to go dancing to the blues at Hotlanta, it was just what I needed. The shape lends a weight to the top of my body that emphasizes the hourglass shape of my waist and makes the rest of me look sleek and sexy. The sculpty prims are used ingeniously so the arm can hinge and still look like it’s in a fur coat and the texture follows suit.

Fur Chic

I furthered the long with leggings from Milla Michinaga. With their slight sheen and well- defined wrinkles and pulls, they add to the illusion of lean. A sexy black corset from NovaStar Shilova covered the bare midriff from the jacket as the jacket alone would not have suited my purposes. Finally, I ended these with the boots from Enktan Gully and LeeZu Baxter that keep getting press here. I am finding more and more uses for them.

And check out Tuli Asturias’ newest skin, Eva, which was a group gift this month. This is a preview of the updated version. I can’t wait to see what she has coming down the line.

Carol Brady’s Got It Goin’ On

Remember Carol Brady? OK, not the Carol of the early Brady shows with her sweet smiles and gently back-combed bob. I am talking about the Carol of the later years—the one with the sexy shag haircut tipped with blonde, the tight jeans, the one who was clearly a predecessor to Stacy’s Mom (who “has got it goin’ on”), the one who you knew sharpened her act because she sensed Mike’s midlife crisis coming on and she had better step up. (And step up, she did. She was a minx, Carol Brady.)

Carol Brady

I got Bax Coen’s new brown Prestige Boots today, and I knew they were just what Carol would wear if Carol were in SL. No Marcia, Marcia, Marcia could pull these babies off. These are boots for a Woman (hear her roar).

I conveniently copied the jibber jabber my professional fitted Red Prestige Boots spewed out and fed it to my brown boots and *poof* they fit! That is what I am talking about! Custom fitting in the click of a button. Then click, delicious chocolate decadence (because these babies come in 4 colors of brown leather—camel, cognac, mocha, and chocolate).

I wear a seemingly conservative dress from Ms. chocolate Arashi of couverture. With it’s Lilly Pulitzer-inspired paisley texture and historically accurate silhouette, Mrs. Brady would have found this ensemble “groovy.”

Carol Brady

The hair.. gosh.. it curled in sensuous fringes down her long neck and curled up around her face in sweet spikes. I am wearing a brilliant almost-reproduction from Rei Gully with beautiful little earrings from Tiffy Vella (jeweler extraordinaire) and a beautifully textured scarf from Milla Michinaga (who wisely flipped from the rather thankless work of blogging to the more exciting world of virtual fashion design and has done so incredibly well).
