I am a big fan of hats, I have been since I joined SL but wow… they have really come a long way. When I found this wonderful hat from Georgyna (LaGyo) it was instant love and the start of this look. Soft and beautifully shaped it comes in many simply gorgeous colors and you can change the color of the button and string band with a built-in script. I added from Mon Tissue a great all around suede jacket. Love the way it cinches in at the waist and then flounces out. The pumps are also from Mon Tissue and the are the perfect little heel for a sporty look. The cropped pants—a length I love in RL as well—are from Willow. They are a huge favorite of mine right now. I found an old favorite in my scarf drawer from Artilleri. It’s a classic, one of the first scarfs I ever bought and I still love it. I don’t know why I needed a briefcase for looking at pumpkins but it is cute. And the little shoulder purse is TokiDoki, a real ❤ with its embroidered flowers on the flap.

Yes, plenty cold and lots of the white stuff falling. But we can stay toasty and warm with all the cute furs and winter gear around the grid right now. I love the all-white looks for snow. And now you can even find skins made for winter. Gala Phoenix at Curio has done some really cute skins that look as though you have been out in the cold with rosy cheeks and flushed skin. This one even has frosty white eyeshadow to match the sparkly snow. ❤ The fur stole from DP yumyum with the little fringe trim is perfect for keeping the shoulders covered and the shiny pants from Lelutka are definitely on my favorite list. They are beautifully rendered and look great in every color. Here they are perfect apres-ski pants but put them with heels and they are sexy and sleek. Kookies’ boots are just yummy….and they come in so many colors, you won’t be able to choose! Details on the rest of the outfit are listed after the cut. Take care and stay warm!

Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam and the skies are not cloudy all day…..how can I give up my dreams of the wild west and cowgirl fun…..WAIT! ….with Milk Motions cool, fringed, long T-shirt I don’t have to. Yee-ha. 🙂 This is super cute and the fringed parts are soooo fringe-a-licious. Plus I got the one with the wild horses on the front which makes it even more western. You gotta love the sculpty bits, just look at the way it is sort of baggy ❤ .The shoulder bag is an old one (the first bag I ever bought in SL!) from Shiny Things and and has just the right worn leather look. Scuffed up leather cowboy boots from Hoorenbeek. Guess I’m ready for the round-up. Get along little doggie and all that stuff.

Yesterday I wrote a post featuring the beautiful Loli asymmetrical jacket from Cupcakes with a sophisticated, dressy pant. Today, I wanted to show two other looks put together with the same jacket. In the first photo the jacket is worn with a skirt. I think it looks great with a skirt—even a slightly full one like this super-cute balloon skirt from the Creamshop. (A great skirt to have and it is available in many, many —nine, I think— colors.) I love pieces like these that can work with everything and I was really surprised at how great this little jacket blended with almost everything I tried. I included a back view so you could see the detail on the back of the jacket…so pretty. By the way, Loli also comes in three other beautiful jewel tone colors.
The second outfit is much more casual and pairs the asymmetrical jacket with Zaara’s new velour pants and a pair of riding boots. To contrast with the casualness of the pants and belt, the necklace is a dressy gold, pearl and crystal one from Paper Couture and the purse is an alligator handbag from Lelutka. The bag is one of my favorites that works well with almost anything.
Hope you like it too!

Okay, so in every closet or drawer there is one thing you really, really LOVE. Well, this Ibizarre cropped pink sweater with its crewel embroidered flowers is something I just adore. The textures are amazing and, although I am not always a girl who goes for bright colors, when I slip into this little cardigan I always feel happy. And it can go with everything…from a snowy day in the mountains to a campus look to a slightly dressier look. So here are three different looks built around this piece.
