City girls who run around town know you shouldn’t be caught without an umbrella these days. The weather is turning colder, the leaves are mostly off the trees, and a rainstorm could come down at any time on a gray day to drench you, so it pays to be prepared.
First, have your umbrella. Second, have a good warm coat like this one from cocoro Lemon. I love how cocoro has styled the coat with a cheetah print inside. This coat is so authentic, from its dangling laces to its hood to its untailored silhouette. She was smart to make the coat open and a little oversized—it’s the cheetah that gives it zing. I donned pants from Uriah Eulenberg that I got in a set I purchased at a Designers United event. Made for men, the pants are high waisted knickers with a great wool tweedy texture. Blessedly, they look great on women too. I layer cheetah print leggings from Anyusha Lilienthal underneath, part of her animal series. And a cheetah print top from Mimikri Kit, picked up at a recent Dressing Room foray, completes my outfit.
Mallory Cowen still presents some of the freshest skins on the grid and her new Phoebe2 is no exception. Once again we have the unbeatable glow that Mallory advertises, the finely shaped eyebrows, the expressive eye makeups, the pretty lips and the great skin tones.
Onyx LeShelle recently came out with a new slew of content—hair and shoes. I have not had a chance to check out the shoes, but I certainly liked her new hair selections, especially as they show movement and life despite the static nature of sculpties. (Though she has always been good at making hair look less like a prim on the head and more like individual strands making a whole.) I loved this hair for this look—anyone caught in the rain would be a bit disheveled.
Gospel Voom has recently come out with a new set of women’s boots and they are fabulous and chic, especially when one might be concerned that Gospel can only do clunky Doc Martens. These are well-built with a gorgeous sculpty shape and absolutely brilliant leather textures. I love the little leather tie.
a wind has blown the rain away and blown
the sky away and all the leaves away,
and the trees stand. I think i too have known
autumn too long
