Fall

… 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.

Fall

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.

Fall

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!)

Oh will you take me as l am?
Will you take me as l am?

Au Naturel

I was feeling sort of natural and free because the weather has been summery warm. Pull out the sandals and the shorts and put on something pretty and loose. Barbra and AvaGardner Kungler run a great store with options for mixing and matching a number of different looks. I found this great top with a drapey sort of sculpty prim (I am not always fond of prims around the waist as they look frumpy but this one works). Shorts from Barbra and AvaGardner complete the look.

I am showing a skin that came to me in a review set from out of the blue. Receiving the package, I ripped it open and to my pleasure found a set of beautiful skins from Trin Trevellion. The skin I show was a natural choice for one who tends towards being a redhead, as I do. I was amazed by the artistry of these hand drawn skins. This set, a fifth generation, shows studied work on the collarbone, lips, eyes, eyebrows and the absolutely beautiful freckles.

So we can admire the skin a little further on the feet and these great sandals from Yabusaka Loon that include a color changing gem. Douglas Story asked if it was really me in “flats.” Yes, I am taking it easy today, Douglas ;)

California I’m coming home
Oh will you take me as I am
Strung out on another man
California I’m coming home
