Lazy Autumn Stroll


Autumn is my favourite time for taking a walk. With the nip in the air, it is always best to have a big, warm guy to tag along. There is no need to hurry; dawdling is encouraged.

There are tons of new autumn-appropriate items floating around the grid this month. Starting with me, the dress from *Just BECAUSE* comes with a bolero to keep your arms nice and snug. The leg warmers from keep my legs toasty and the hat from JfL keeps the heat from seeping out of my head.

Chance has a totally new look (see below for all of his meshy wonderfulness), including the jacket/shirt combination from VRSION. Given my appalling lack of male fashion sense, I was thrilled to see this combo and sent Chance running to TMD to pick it up. He has even grown a beard for the season, compliments of an awesome group gift from NO.MATCH!

On to the scene…I am in love with the bicycle prop from {what next}. With a basket chock-full of pumpkins, it is perfect for a fall setting. With contributions from Apple Fall and Kalopsia, plus the finishing touch of the wrought iron fence from Botanical, we found the ideal spot to rest on our lazy autumn walk.

New Kid In Town

1 New Kid In Town sm

I have been a fan of Annie Melson’s for a long time. I dug deep into the depths of my inventory a few weeks ago and found an outfit from *Just BECAUSE* dating back to 2011. That’s about 294 years in Second Life time! So I was especially excited and honoured to have been selected to blog for this well-established and talented designer.

The top I am wearing is the first release I am blogging as an official *JB* blogger. Like a lot of her casual wear, on first glance it is just a simple tank. However, if you look at the details, such as the way it rides up around the hips and the sweet little drawstring on the side you can begin to understand why this brand has enjoyed such enduring success.

I may be the new kid in town, but I’ve been around the block a time or two and I know great quality when I slip it over my head.

Pretty stuff I’m showing off:
*Top: *Just BECAUSE* *JB* Tess TankTop by Annie Melson (NEW RELEASE at the main store)

1 Sparkly Shiny Silky Fluffy sm

Wasn’t I a happy girl to find these sparkly, shiny pendants from [ keke ] and the silky, satiny shoes from Apple May Designs waiting for me? These are just the kinds of things that send my squee-factor off the charts!

[ keke ] has released these pendants for the August round of The Forest. It has just opened today (August 11th) and runs through the 25th. This is the second month for this unique event, where you pay one flat group joining fee, then collect all of the pretties scattered through the forest. There are no surprises; you can wander around the venue to see what is offered before joining the group and picking up your items. With 21 top designers participating, it is well worth the investment. Just remember you need to rejoin the group each month. All details can be found on The Forest Event blog.

If you are one of the fortunate ones who has been able to make it into Collabor88 this month for the 5th anniversary edition, you are not only lucky but have probably seen these shoes from Apple May Designs. If you are still waiting to get in, then mark them down on your “must have” list – they are gorgeous! The texturing is divine and the bow at the ankle makes these the perfect date night heels.
