In SL, going back to school means . . . every girl's excuse to break out the li'l miniskirt and cutesy backpack -- without the annoyance of actually having to study. I know the plaid miniskirt look is what we all think of, but I opted for something a bit more elegant today.
Check out this ivory white cableknit sweater and skirt set that got me into the studious mood. This classic look is all about the accessories: the darling double rosettes barrette and the multi-rope black pearls choker are such fun fashion extras. This store G&G Designs gives out a free outfit every Monday (check the back wall) and this was today's freebie. If you like this outfit, they always have last week's freebie on the side wall (near the Lucky Chair) so it will be free next week as well.
For a more girlish schoolgirl look, I also tried this look with an updo hair + the luscious candy jewelry from Violet Voltaire. Don't these rainbow pastel earrings + lolli necklace look simply lickable?
The apple bubblegum was just was just for attitude, heh.
There have been some supercute freebie backpacks recently. The dripping ice cream/cookies one is from Needful Things + the camo one is from the store where everything is free, the wonderful Magi Take Shop. So cute!
There are soooo many superfun hunts going on now. Gavin and I grabbed the hilarious "Green Eggs & Ham" gift from the Dr. Seuss hunt at Famish. These adorable pink ham slices come with a scripted face animation and even a tiny li'l fork. Here we are at the school cafeteria where I don't think Gavin was enjoying his slice so much.
Look for these looks + more freebie finds in my "Better Quality Freebies" Shopping List #7 for this week.
Love + fashionista kisses to all!
