A bouffant updo (this one's "Rashida" by Truth), some bustier-like ruffles (by Indyra Originals, from the new "Garbo" set), layers of gem-topped pearls (these are new by Donna Flora), some tomato red lips + a particularly aloof pose are all any girl really needs to get her fancy on.
NYC is officially on hurricane lockdown, meaning we're all essentially having what amounts to a snow day sprinkled with the angst of pending disaster (i.e., mass transit shut down, panic run on the grocery stores for water + batteries, etc.). Styling-wise, this meant a calming neutrals palette was definitely in order. I slipped on the newest nude suede ruched skirt & belted blazer set by Ricielli, this deliciously messy, 2-tone "Josie" style new by Truth + some new coral-toned Donna Flora jewels. And since some alcohol is never amiss in a disaster, this free yummy pumpkin cocktail helped calm the nerves a bit. *slurps generously* We NYCers are no strangers to weather; still, I must say that these whirling "wind tunnel" noises are a bit scary. Searching for flashlights love + fashionista kisses to all!
Some free Halloween treats for you today, courtesy of the Sey triple SIM hunt, the current Sounds Gravis Beach event + the newest lucky board at BCC. This 2-tone purple & black "Elvira" color of this week's new "Rashida" long style by Truth lent some grape color pop to this candy corn-hued look. -- Btw cats are such show-offs, aren't they? This is why I prefer dogs, hehe. No tricks, just treats love + fashionista kisses to all!

Bright colors are one of the funnest ways to brave the chillier weather. Take this sky blue, chocolate-sashed coat by Drift for example; I added some candy pink touches for extra color punch, like these new blush-toned ankle booties by Donna Flora, a new ribboned clutch purse by Magic Nook + this gorges 2-tone, side braided, bouffant "Cheyenne" style new by Truth; a splash of sea green jewelry (all new by Donna Flora) added extra vibrance to this already-colorful punch.
I don't usually do vendor signage, but creator Squinternet Larnia is way too talented to refuse. Check out a close-up of her beautiful new "Ermes"mesh boots + shoes, which are tres lovely in these jewel + natural tones. Cloudy blue love + fashionista kisses to all!
Slipping into this new floral-embroidered Donna Flora halter gown + new floral jewels were just the thing for my symphony ready stroll around Lincoln Center today. Given all the heavenly concertos & such, a violin felt more appropo than a purse, hehe. Harmony in composition love + fashionista kisses to all!
And this is how I do "pumpkin" tones this time of year.
This look is more a combo of russet + orange hues, with a splash of turquoise; this archetypal "Southwest desert" color scheme reminded me how much I miss the Arizona sky, where a spectacular mix of dust + light creates technicolor sunsets every night (the likes of which I've yet to see anywhere else on this planet).
Meanwhile here in NYC, I'm already over the cold weather (and it's just begun)! Down comforter time love + fashionista kisses to all!
This week's new "Guiliana" style by Truth features long, luscious waves + a smex bangless side part that falls saucily over the cheek.
I've been loving the "Fades" 2-tone color pack by Truth; check out this subtle "Toast" color, featuring sweet shades of both milk + dark chocolate brown. Yummy enough even for my thoughtful "Finger of Death"pose here, hehe. It's already one of those days love + fashionista kisses to all!
Some looks for you today in peach + plum tones for you today, embracing the chilly weather in soft, feminine fall palettes.
These new cashmere sweater & satin skirt separates are lovely in lush, muted jewel tones by Baiastice; love seeing the snuggly stuff in such luscious tones for these chilly October days. A glam free draped scarf by League + this week's new long, gentle waves style "Havana" by Truth gave a natural, smex bounce to these brisk fall looks. Fall palettes love + fashionista kisses to all!
So . . . the sailor shirt thing. It's been done many times, but this newest mesh version -- and matching skirt -- are truly the best renditions I've seen yet inworld. -- This look is also tres useful for looking girlishly innocent, hehe.
You can catch this set on sale by R2 (creator Rei2 Aya once again proving her versatility, which extends way beyond shoes) at the newest installment of Collabor88; some pouty lips earrings + tilted crown (both also new Collabor88 finds) + this free bag o' fashionista magazines added a pop o' color, together with this week's luscious new heavy bangs "Swift" style by Truth, which I especially loved in this rich chocolate brown/baby pink color combo. Some wickedly stiletto-studded, black & white lace-up boots helped me strut my worldly travels in style.
