It’s starting to feel like Sweater Weather

Yup, it’s time to get your jumpers out of the cupboard folks, because Autumn is fast approaching so it’s time to get cuddled up wearing your favourite sweater.  This one is already a treasured item of mine, it is just scrumptious! It’s from COCO @ FAMESHED and the texture and style of it are mouthwateringly good.  I love the fact that it’s tucked in at the front too, it looks very realistic indeed.  This is another of those times where I’m drooling after something in Second Life.  I’ve been looking for a jumper just like this one in real life and I cannot find it, ARGHHH!

To finish this look I’m sporting hair by FOXY and I’m still wearing my ‘Skin Of The Week-Blair’ because frankly I love it and don’t want to take it off! My cosmetic layers were a find from ANYBODY. Morgana Hilra wrote about this amazing palette from SHINY STUFFS at the event and she was right, it’s fantastic!

Favourite Shirt

One of the many joys of being in the SL BLOGGER SUPPORT group is that we are occasionally granted early access to events.  Often, at first glance, an event won’t necessarily fit in with my own personal agenda, but I’ll still visit in case I’m surprised and find something absolutely smashing that I just have to have.  Today I visited an event that is a perfect example of just that!

DREAMFUL describes itself as an event themed around “..dreamy, blossom, cute and romantic items for kids and adults avatars..” and if I’m being  honest it’s the kind of thing that I  generally avoid, but in truth, I’m seriously pleased that I dropped by.  I spied some lovely hair and dresses and some uber kawaii items that will appeal to a wide audience, including this cracking shirt and hairstyle that I’m wearing in the picture above.

This hair is by FOXY; a new-to-me brand that retails an eclectic range of sunglasses and chokers, yoga accessories and journals  in their store. They’re certainly worth your time and Lindens, and it seems like they’re expanding their range into hair now too with three styles at current events; the must-have double plait/ponytail combo that seems to be on every blog called ‘Skinny Love’ which is available from THE CRYSTAL HEART FESTIVAL, a loose bob called ‘Melt’ available at TRES CHIC and this Swing Out Sister inspired style called ‘Heartbeats’ from DREAMFUL.  It’s a short, sharp and sassy style, seriously reminiscent of Corinne Drewery and Louise Brooks and tied close to the skull with a thick headband. I look forward to more equally inspired hairstyles from the brand.   I’ve teamed my style with a fabulous cold shoulder style ‘Peekaboo’ denim shirt from LAZYBONES (also available at DREAMFUL) and the result is a quirky, 80’s inspired look.

The accessories that I’m sporting in this snap are both from the PULSE FUNDRAISER, which is raising funds for the victims of the ORLANDO SHOOTING.  You’ll find an absolute plethora of items donated by some of the biggest and brightest designer names in SECOND LIFE and it’s a wonderfully inspiring way to show your support and raise funds for those affected by the tragedy.  I just had to get this fantastic Mani/Pedi from ALASKA METRO called ‘Pride’ which features an absolutely essential selection of glitter and rainbow designs which I’ll get tonnes of wear from.  I’m also sporting a rather wonderful wristband from IZZIES too; it’s also called ‘Pride’and is an open leather cuff design that features interchangeable messages to show your love and respect for all members of the LGBT community.

Last but not least my AMARA BEAUTY skin, ‘Dana’, looks great with this outfit.
