Spring is in the air which for mean usually means cute skirts and dresses. This month at Collabor88 they have just that… cute skirts and dresses. The theme looks kinda office-y, but as usual everything can work for many different themes.
My skirt is the silk skater skirt from Milk Motion and it’s animated! I don’t know if this is the first ever animated piece of mesh clothing, but it sure is the first I have ever seen. There is a version that stays still, one that only animate when you walk and one that always animates. It’s a really interesting feature, although I am just using the non-moving one.
I went crazy trying to find just the right top for the mood I was in to wear with the skirt. I went all over the place and nothing jumped out at me. I finally made it back to C88 and sitting right there in front of me from Fishy Strawberry was pretty much the exact shirt I had been looking for. And WHAT LUCK! It was not too short nor too long, but tucked in at just the right place to work perfectly with the skirt. Some times with mesh is can me so hard to put things together that are not made for each other.
I also picked up this really cute top bun hair from Clawtooh and some chunky framed glasses from Yummy at this month’s C88.
There is so much going on right now in SL, I donno where to go next! If you are having problems figuring out what event to hit up next, take it from me, skin fair should definitely be near the top of your list. So many great great artists there and Spring is a great time to try out a new look for the warmer months.
I am wearing Ari from Dead Apples, their first skin and I am in love! It is one of my top favorites from this year’s fair. The skin has such a sweet face with a cute little nose that makes me want to just smoosh it and lips that look just yummy! I know that is a weird way to describe lips, but they make me want to bite my lip, so .. yummy. But my favorite part of the skin, and this may sound a little weird, is the part on either side of the nose that goes into the cheeks and under eye area. It’s hard to explain, but I love how it looks puffy. It’s a great detail that most skins don’t have and I think it adds a little something to the skin. I can’t wait to see what other great skins come from Dead Apples!

So many wonderful Fall things coming out I don’t think I will have time to wear them all! (Or the money to get them )
This outfit was put together on a rather small budget. The hair (hat included), the bag and the top were all from September Collaber88.
My shoes are from Ingenue and were at this round of the Arcade for a steal! I didn’t have any particular color I wanted so I just played a bunch of times to get a bunch of colors. They are that cute you will want them in multiple colors.
My scarf from Milk Motion is also from a gatche, but at the Seasons Story event. I love this scarf to pieces! I want to collect all the colors. I played it a bunch of times and thankfully didn’t hit any doubles… yet. I am still missing a few I would like so I am sure to hit up the machine again. It just really fits nicely for a rigged scarf. I usually have fitting issues, but didn’t with this one.
Lastly my skin is also from a gatcha for only 75L from La Petite Morte at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival. There are 4 tones in the skin each with 5 possible make-ups and one of them being a rare. I think this is one of my favorite skins from La Petite Morte! The Carnival opens October 1st so don’t for get to check them out!

I love Fall! I think it’s one of the most fun seasons to dress for in both real life and secondlife. This Fall season brought us another Seasons Hunt… sadly the LAST one. 😦 It was the one hunt I really looked forward to. I hope you all went out hunting because there were a lot of awesome prizes from the stores involved.

Week 5 of 52 Weeks Of Color Challenge is Sepia.
When i think of sepia it brings me back to high school and most of college spent in the photography lab printing my pictures and then toning a good number of them in different saturation levels of sepia. So when I put the outfit together I also had to bring in different levels and tones of sepia.

Where are the links?!?! I am trying something new to make it a little quicker and easier for me setting up my posts and I have now made a page with all my links on it. The page can be found HERE.
It’s raining here and even though it’s not terribly cold I find I still like putting on a cozy sweater when it’s raining so I did the same in SL. The Papercut Cardigan from Reek for yesterday’s 50L Friday is the perfect cozy fall sweater. It was out in red and cream and I HOPE we soon see it in a bunch more colors. I am just as addicted to sweaters in SL as I am in RL.
Project Themeory’s theme this week is “Garage sale!” and Milk Motion has out an awesome vintage tank top that was perfect under my cozy cardigan. There is also a vintage scarf and bag that I really suggest snagging while they are out.
My shoes are from Surf Couture. I had bought them at the shoe fair, but SL has hated me ever since and would never load their texture until today! i was so happy SL was finally letting me wear these shoes as I have been dying to for ages.
