First Frost

Early this morning in Boston we had our first frost of the season. When it finally arrives it takes your breath away after so many hot days, even well into Fall. I was inspired to dress with that light ice in mind so I slipped into the palest, frost-kissed skin. And, do you recognize my bow adornment once again? You should since it’s one of my all time favorite accessories.

And you know I am rarely one for gowns, but how could I resist this special one from Pixicat? So if you’re like me and have nowhere to wear a gown in SL (or RL for that matter), you will still want this for the texture alone. It’s legitimately dreamy. Thank you, areve. I didn’t add the butterflies only because it’s too chilly for them 😉

Lastly, I have had several messages over the last few weeks asking me to consider switching up my bento head a little more often than every once in a while (or sentiments to that effect). This bot will see what she can do!

May I recommend?

May I recommend you take a break from rushing around, TP’ing, clicking and unpacking hundred of items at a plethora of events? No? Well OK, but in your frenzy to acquire all the shinies, don’t miss what is one of the best releases I have seen in a while. And with a big gulp of fresh air, you can only find these perfect cigarette pants at a main store 😮

Shocked face. I know. The 15th of any month is a crazed, frenetic time for fashion consumers (and bloggers) in Second Life. But for me, I skipped all of it – I didn’t even pick up Luxe Box (tbh it’s been not good for me for a few months now…). Instead, I went to one place: Addams. I fatpacked these highwaisted trousers and didn’t even twitch.

I also went back to a favorite skin of mine. How many of you are such Glam Affair collectors that you know what this skin is without having to look at the credits below?

Have a great Monday!

Power Pairing

I love this power pairing of skirt suit and sleek boots. I rarely wear “outfits” that can be separates because it’s more fun for me to break everything up BUT this jacket was too perfectly “cut” for its pencil skirt pairing. Plus the blue is so beautiful.

There’s something really satisfying about a look that is both powerful and powerfully feminine. Empowerment can manifest in fashion – even virtual fashion!

I know I have been scarce lately but things have just been crazy and when I have time to log in, I am not always able to get through everything to actually blog. You all know how life gets sometimes. You have to prioritize in a way that helps you get through. And with that, I hope to see you all much sooner than later.

Unexpected

This was a bit unexpected. I didn’t expect to be inspired so quickly after my declaration that I was on a self-imposed moratorium. But these pieces brought together my style whimsy in a way that was unexpected but so very perfect for a pick me up.

I’ll probably never be the blogger in the sexiest dress or new, popular “skimp wear,” but give me a longer hem and a body skimming sheath, and I’m all about it. Thanks to Stories & Co. for the inspiration and thanks to Collabor88 for being exactly what I needed to get some mojo back.

You ‘gotta let your style take you wherever it leads – even if it’s not going to be what the masses are always interested in. You hope it comes through as authenticity.
