I love a good oversized blazer. IRL I actually prefer it to be just slightly longer than my skirt when worn open…as you do. Even though this SL blazer is just a smidge shorter, it has the perfect oversized fit for my avatar.
Like you I bet, I got home from the long Thanksgiving weekend and went absolutely HAM at “Black Friday” sales. Thank goodness most were still on even Monday, so I could pick up fatpacks I had been eyeing, body skins I was missing since I switched to Legacy Perky, and even some home decor. Mission accomplished. The blazer isn’t the only thing oversized right about now…my inventory has crossed further into bloated territory despite being well-organized.
By the way, this necklace is from the now shuttered Fishy Strawberry and it actually inspired the whole style, right down to my belt buckle. You can find similar pieces from brands like Mandala and Minimal.

Later this week we officially enter the “holiday season.” In the US, Thanksgiving is brazenly unapologetic about kicking off the countdown to every kind of excess as we hurtle toward Christmas and year end. We are harried, stretched, stressed – trying to please everyone in every way. Or perhaps I’m projecting. Thankfully, I’m learning to live a bit more in the here and now – and I’m especially thankful for family, friends, my animals who I live for, and also this creative platform that affords me a path to express myself through beauty, fashion and decorating – all shared RL passions.
There’s not a lot to this style at first glance but I’m absolutely obsessed with the newest BoM skin from Insol @Kustom9. It reminds me of the avatar behind Cake (hair & skins) of FNKY Cake from the olden days in SL. Her avatar was so memorable visually. Anyway, I love it and have it in several tones. I’m also enjoying a sweater vest “dress” from ISON that I clearly didn’t wear that way. For me it’s better with jeans, though I would have preferred a straight leg option. Unfortunately this vest silhouette didn’t lend itself to that look.
Before I go, I’m also very thankful for you – the few or the many – who read my ramblings and/or enjoy the styles I catalog here. I’m sincerely grateful in every way.

It threatened to snow yesterday in Boston – but thankfully didn’t. I’m not ready. Like at all. Meanwhile, I spent the weekend taking my niece shopping IRL. Her birthday present was a “no limits shopping spree.” I have only one niece, so we did some serious damage. You can’t take it with you, right? But, with a recession coming (feels like it’s already here tbh), I suspect “winter is coming” takes on a whole new meaning for any future sprees. If it’s not already obvious, I never watched GoT.
In Second Life, I’m wearing an ensemble of light neutrals and boots from friday that have quickly risen to favorite status in all my inventory. I actually dug through my inventory for days to find a suitable complementary bag, as I was originally styling to mirror my RL shopping trip. But here we are days later and I am finally posting this combination of new (Collabor88/Fameshed) and very old (oh hi ancient scarf from Zenith), as is my standard practice. I’m loving the soft makeup from Dernier and Jack Spoon on top of a favorite BoM skin from Koonz.
Here’s your requisite daily dose of, “It’s fall!!!!” I was walking my dog yesterday and thought sincerely, that if it were always fall, I wouldn’t complain. Here in Boston it’s been so warm and breezy, leaves everywhere, just magical tbh. So, this daily dose makes me very happy!
I’m styling several new items that I just knew would be perfect together. I don’t think I got the necklace right but I’m delighted with the rest.
