Quick Changes - Feeling Fall

I'm trying something new out today. I'm going to call these posts Quick Changes. Images are clickable to larger sizes.

These are just outfits that I put on for a day or an hour or however long. I seem to change clothes a lot in SL, so hence the name.

I'm feeling the onset of Fall in my bones, even though it's still quite warm in my neck of the First Life woods. That mood pretty much started me off with this ensemble which I put together mainly by choosing complementary colors and items that had stuck steadfastly in my mind.

I'll start out by saying I am incredibly torn between a few skin makers right now; you're all killin' me with the goodies. I'm wearing the Minnu Model Skins in TanSkinGloss - Love make up in these pictures and I love it quite a lot.;)

The hair in these shots is by Cake, the Europa style in Black. I rarely wear styles shorter than bra strap length but this hair has completely seduced me. It just rocks.

My first Fall item I chose to wear was something I'd been wanting to wear for a few days. It's the Poppin' It top in bronze. Notice the cute little Savvy? mark on the bottom hem and the assymetric buttons in the back. This bronze color seems rich and yet not overbearing and that's what I wanted. It also looks warm but not too warm, suitable for the changeable weather this time of year.

I found that I didn't have too many brown or beige or chocolate items in my inventory which was a little surprising but I was happy I had purchased these great pants from ETD. They are an amazing bargain too for only $1L for 8 pairs.

Since my skintone was also tan, I was a little worried I was going too monochromatic and would begin to look like walking toast with hair. This was a golden opportunity, therefore, to pull out one of my new purchases. The Jungle belt from HoHo (listed as Hobo also in my inventory) added just the right touch and coordinated with the pink tone to my lipstick. The belts come in two sizes and mine took minimal adjusting to my everlasting gratitude. Hoho also carries other belts and bags and will be closing shortly so get your stuff before then. All items are on sale, but be aware that the store shares a location with two others.

I'd been looking for more opportunities to wear the Grace heels from Maitreya and this was a perfect match. These shoes were another item that seemed to step across the boundary between Summer and Fall with ease. All I had left to do was add some accessories and I reached, as I so often do, for something in leopard print. The bangle set from Earthtones fit the bill perfectly. I added another touch of pink with my nails to pick up the same shade in my lipstick and belt - the Lulu nailpolish in Hot Pink from Celestial Studios and finishing up with a long necklace, the Boho Necklace in Mixed Cherry Woods from Earthones.

I felt like a million bucks and my quick change was complete.

Minnu Model Skin - TanSKinGloss - Love - $1150L
Europa Hair in black from Cake - $350L

Very cute and that too is one of my favorite hairs. I saw those pants the other night at ETD, I think I grabbed them. But I'm not quite sure, my inventory is ready to explore. 45k and counting BAH, I can't help all the pretties! ;)

Thank you Aradia. I'm still pretty nervous doing this, so the comments from everyone really help!

I love your posts so, that's an added oomph for me. :)

I think those pants are fabu, especially at that price. I still haven't explored all the colors yet.

I'm overwhelmed with a 19K inventory, eek. Can't imagine how you keep track of 45 plus.

I meant to type "explode" btw lmao, although I'm sure it's ready to explore too. I bet it wants to leave my cramped up little inventory :D

Phoenix Chapman said...

Wow. 19000? 45000?!

I kinda sorta suck at only 14000 eh? XD
