so, i’m not quite sure if we’re going through an indian summer, but i’m starting to get a little irritated at how i’m still unable to wear some of my favorite fall pieces that i have been dying to wear lately. thankfully, in the pixel world, i can wear a fabulous colored fur stole that i’d possibly have to wait another 3 months to wear irl. colored fur is absolutely amazing and bloomingdales is standing all behind it – i adore it. i was ecstatic when i saw some at bliss couture in a variety of colored pairings… this navy and marigold color being one of my faves. i love mixing casual with fancy – a comfy tiger sweater from milk motion with the bottom lace portion of a mimikri dress with a luxe crocodile bag by ison topped off with transparent glasses and some rugged vooner boots. it’s all about the mixing and matching and coming up with combinations that pique the interest. oh, and i really love this anna wintour-esque hair by elikatira. i instantly grabbed it in the essentials pack because i tend to have a.d.d. with my haircolor and can’t stick to one particular family of shades. fall, will you stop slacking and come already?

so i was styling away with this new solidea folies floral headpiece and my la malvada mujer makeup (since i’ve become re-obsessed lately) and realized that for some reason, my look started to remind me of the bossa nova period. thus the sergio and brasil 66 tribute sound. don’t ask me how i lead myself to such inspirations – my odd mind works in odd ways. as for the shirt, i am in love at how marc jacob-y this top seemed to me. while i initially wanted to create a vintagey look with it… this is what the end result turned out to be. the shoes are a new classic, yet solid pair of pumps from elikatira which i’m wearing in a subtle nude. and the skin! oh the skin… new from tuli and gorgeous, i’ve fallen in love with tuli again from their recent releases (ty, they’re absolutely lovely!). lastly, my touch of nostalgia for the outfit is the necklace from kookie – which was probably one of the first jewelry purchases i ever made in sl. brings back fond virtual memories!

firstly, happy 2011 everyone! with a brand new year, there are a few things on my mind that i’d like to start anew and try to conquer and some things i want to continue doing. one thing i know that i’ll never let go of is my love for mixing prints in whatever look i do – sl or rl. there’s something about seeing a variety of different prints ultimately working together in a look that satisfies me so much. mixing a floral with a plaid or a leopard and a tartan – whatever the combination may be, it’s all very good to me.. and you should try it, it’s fun! some of you may know peqe, but for those that don’t, be sure to check the store by designer inex hax who’s an absolute sweetheart. there are some great dresses and leggings from there i haven’t seen elsewhere. the shoes are new from elikatira in which i instantly fell in love with them as soon as i layed eyes on them – especially in the white and dune colors. and lastly, i’m always a sucker for some bold framed glasses and these from wrigglesworths that were released with their holiday sweaters are greater than ever and a sculpted upgrade from their classic ray band specs.
