Autumn Walk

I’m crazy about the autumn season, it’s the perfect time for being outdoors, when the earth is full of rich color. Dressing for fall is just as much fun for me, when the stores are full of mimicking color, multitudes of textures like suede, leathers, wools, and knits. Layering is the key to keeping winters breath away, maintaining mobility and warmth, and the flexibility of the day turning warmer or cooler at a moments notice. My outfit is layered for a walk in the forest.  A warm new wool coat from Slink, cheerful ginkgo yellow shorts, warm leggings layered under, and beautiful boots.

Autumn Walk

Slink recently released the Marigold Coat. It’s available with a variety of options if you chose the Multipack version.  This version will give you eight wool coat colors, seven belt colors, eight collar colors, and six button colors, that you can mix and match to create a unique look with an easy to use HUD.  I’m wearing the green wool coat, with tan belt, cream collar, and cream buttons. If you choose to purchase it as a single, buy the color you like, which comes with a preselected collar, belt, and button color, that are shown on the vendor.

My shorts are a new release from Boom, the Estate Short.  They’re nicely tailored and available in forty different colors. They’re up on marketplace if you wanna browse the shades.  Layered underneath my Boom Estate Shorts, are my Folklore Leggings in Navajo print from League.  Earthy colors, geometric print, and a nice thick tight knit, which pick up the tan in my Cult Riding Boots from Ison.  These boots are hot thigh highs, in an amazing leather texture, with straps behind the knee and great heel shape. They’re available in tan (shown), black, brown, carmine, cream, and navy.

My accessories are Maxi Gossamer Jewelry’s Dew Encrusted Teardrop ring.  It’s texture change, and I went with amber for my outfit. It’s a nice earthy chunk of rock that suited my look. My earrings are Zaara’s Atiriya Stone Earrings in Carnelian-Gold, more chunky rocks for this look. I’m wearing Flair’s Set 102, in Camo4 to pick up the reddish browns. on my Slink mesh hands. Maitreya’s Leather Satchel in Camo, for a soft suede contrast to my knits, wools, and leathers. My hair is new from Mina, the Josje.  I went with a nice auburn shade, it comes with a hud to change the color of the ponytail band.  I love the thick fringe/bangs. My skin is a new skin from Izzie’s, the Katya.  I’m wearing the Green eyeshadow layer, with Peach Glossy lipstick, and moles.

I had a bit of fun with color starting with Exile’s Celebrity Skin hairstyle.  After changing into my Lacuna tank and jeans, I accidentally wore my Wild Fusion 2 HUD instead of the Natural Fusion HUD, and when I saw the Tropic hair shade I couldn’t take it off! I love how with the Exile HUDS, you can now click the little polkadots under the shade to add extra streaks of color.  I added more orange to this shade.  I had planned on wearing my new SLink Tri-Colour Wedges again, changed them to match my outfit, as well as my Summertime jewelry from Maxi Gossamer.  It was too easy to get dressed today.  My Lacuna jeans and tank are all mesh and currently available at My Attic for $95L.  The Secret Garden come with a coordinated Ribbed Tank, and the Ribbed Tanks are also available in packs of three. My Glamorize makeup is currently at Cosmetics Fair, and it’s at a great price!

My Attic’s June session runs through to June 30th. The theme for this session is ‘Escape’ and the designers, and guest designers participating have created beautiful items based on what that theme means to them. A selection of fashion, hair, poses, accessories and props available. I hope you will join us for this event at The Deck. All items will be $95L for the duration of the event, and will then go to regular store prices afterwards. Stop by My Attic to see the many items that are available.

The Celoe & LeLutka team have released several new items. For Celoe it’s the hot Jacqualine Sandals. The mesh sandals come in eight colors, with the chain/metal options of gold and silver included. They feature an easy to use HUD to tint feet, change manicures, and resize. Forget spring, I need a hot summer date for these!
LeLutka released two mesh hairstyles, and today I am wearing the Bouffant in Praline. This. Is. Big. Sexy. Hot. Hair. The hairstyle features a mesh base, mesh tresses, and a pearl tiara. Grab a demo and check it out.

My poses are new from Ma Vie, and are currently available at Pose Fair 2013 which is running until April 14. I used several from different sets released there, and also with my Eames Lachaise from Handverk. Ma Vie makes nice poses, suited nicely for everything from personal photos, blogging, and professional photography. Don’t forget to check out her Underwater Love set. While you might just think it’s for mermaids…I’m sitting on the chaise with it. You better WORK!

You better WORK!

I’m also wearing Handverk’s Flamingo Clutch, and Disk Necklace. The clutch is full of whimsy, and available in a variety of colors, I’m over the moon with the pink one, and love the design of it. The disk necklace is also available in a number of textures, and is great for modern formal and casual. I’m really impressed with the design of Handverks accessories as they are contemporary in design, but each has some organic or whimsical element.

HANDverk New Mainstore

HANDverk has created a new main store. It’s a beautiful contemporary mesh building complex housing their mesh accessories, and mesh home goods. The building is beautiful I especially liked the enclosed courtyard at the teleport spot. The canopy over it really is nice, and I love the spiral stair case in the corner. The home goods are nicely displayed for demoing, and finding the options available for them. The accessories building is a stunning display area for their items. The colors, the tone of wood, and graphic displays are professional, well thought out, and suit the entire build. The designers have put as much thought and care into the store as they do the design of their products, and ads. Second Life is becoming so exciting and refreshing since the introduction of mesh and this is an example.

A new release/update from SLink are my SLink Avatar Enhancement Hands. If you already own SLink’s mesh hands, or feet go back to the store and get the latest update via the redelivery terminal. The latest update gives you the ability to perfectly match your prim parts to your skin by using an applier made by your skin designer!

Developer kits are available to designers, click here for more info on how to apply for a kit. Tuli is using this now with my new Eva skin, so you can stop by her store and buy a skin applier hud that will match all her tones. The hands/feet are really simple to use. Unpack your purchase, read the item titles inside the folder carefully. There will be the regular mesh hands/feet you can tint still via hud. But there is a separate hand/foot boxed that says “Avatar Enhancement”. Unpack this if it’s not already unpacked. This is what you need to use the appliers, the actual part will be labeled with an (av).

You will find your hands and several huds in the Avatar Enhancement folder. There is a Basic Fingernails Hud with basic manicures. The Main Nails Visibility Hud allows you to change the length and tip of your fingernails. There is a hud you can wear to quick access the SLink website for more info called Slink Avatar Enhancements. Check to see if your favorite skin designers have made SLink hand/feet appliers for you. They’re easy to use, once you have your (av) hands/feet on, wear that particular stores hud, and click the shade you want, and viola. Same technique for manicures which are available from several stores. I’m wearing a pink and silver manicure in Flair’s Set 5. Many designers are also using this to make stockings for the bare mesh foot as well so check your favorite stores for this item.

*Remember you will only see the perfect effects from tinting and appliers, if you have your basic shaders and atmospheric shaders enabled. To do this, go into (Ctrl + P) Preferences > Graphics Tab > Advanced and checkmark the boxes.*
