… And every year there is a brief, startling moment
When we pause in the middle of a long walk home and
Suddenly feel something invisible and weightless
Touching our shoulders, sweeping down from the air:
It is the autumn wind pressing against our bodies;
It is the changing light of fall falling on us.
~ from “Fall” by Richard Hirsch
Fall is the poet’s favorite time of year—bright colors, bold scents, and the idea of death lingering over everything. It’s a delicious sort of melancholy really, an indulgent state of emo. It requires long walks through the fallen leaves, squinty gazing up in the now-bare trees, and a pensive expression.
It also requires, as with everything I do, a good wardrobe. In this case I shrugged on a great jacket from kinbo Akina, which comes in three colors (get the fat pack at only 400L for versatility). I layered it over a spankin’ new sweater from Anyusha Lillienthal, which sports a cute sculpty front pocket and slouchy waist. I had a little trouble adjusting this prim at first but layered under the coat it looks dandy. Leggings also from Anyusha keep me warm.
My skin is a beautiful freckled fall wonder from Trin Trevellion. This particular line is suitable for redheads or brunettes and has a beautiful skin tone with pretty lips and gorgeous eyes. My pretty earrings are from Maeve Mortlock, the goddess of fun and inexpensive jewelry. (She said her RL sister is a RL jewelry maker but Maeve herself is too “tomboyish” to make silver do what she wants so she does it in SL.) I would buy a lot of this jewelry if it were available in RL–it has a beautiful hand-crafted look.
My boots, which are perfect for fall leaf kicking, are from Siddean Munro, who is just in the middle of spring on her side of the world. With their luscious leather textures, the great zipper, and the really easy resizer hud, these boots are a deal. (And I love the styling—check the strap running under the boot!)
