Plaid, Please

It’s sweater weather! Well, in theory. And definitely not here in Florida. But for me, September is the start of it all! Addams has released this new loose sweater in assorted color packs (solid, plaid, ombre, splotch) and the tones of this particular pattern are definitely rocking the Fall 2018 Pantone color palette. I’ve really been on a plaid kick in RL and so I went straight for that pack. I’ll admit that at first, I was iffy on the red and purple together, but it totally works and adding the new studded boots from Reign really added to the ‘wow’ factor.

Glam Affair has also released a new skin for LeLutka Heads. I am wearing Trecy in Tone 6. I still miss my old America tones, but I am really enjoying the variations in the new tones for seasons, as well as all of the new features. Can you say, hello contour!? Anyway, check out these lips on Trecy! As soon as I saw the ad, I was hooked. She is definitely my new favorite! What do you think of the new tones?

Love Cara

Autumn Leaves are Falling

Autumn is here! Or, nearly here if you live in the South- but nevertheless, it’s here! The September round of the Arcade marks the third anniversary of an amazing event and having been a loyal visitor to each round so far, I am so excited to see how well it’s done over the years. With the fall season kicking in, this round of the event brings with it lots of warm and inviting autumn inspired treats. Can you say #pumpkinspiceeverything? I love it!

There is something about editorial hair that I can’t get enough of. Though they’re not pieces you’ll probably wear on a regular basis, every photographer should always keep a few of them on hand and the new set from Tableau Vivant for this round feature some of the best ‘in motion’ styles I’ve seen in a while. On top of that, Lode always has some great accessories, too. Being a fan of anything that I can plop on my head to tie an outfit together made this autumn headpiece the perfect addition to to my new dress by Ricielli from Tres Chic.

Animal Print

I love animal print and it just so happens to be one of those styles that has a wide range of versatility to it! For this look, I decided to stay a little on the cooler side of things by pairing this leopard print jacket from Ricielli with the mint zipper skinnies from Maitreya! I think the warmer tones of the jacket really go well with the color of the jeans, don’t you?

In showing off my new mesh hands from SLink, I decided to add some awesome new mesh releases from Mandala as well, and to finish it off, I couldn’t not wear these cute open-toe booties from ISON.

My Outfit:

Ricielli – Blazer (mesh) (leopard) & Cowhide Tote Leather Bag (mesh) (camel)

Maitreya – Mesh Zipper Skinny Pastel (mesh) (mint)

Exile – Read to Go (mesh) (marone)

Blowpop – Yvette Bra Top (brown)

ISON – Miraya Open Toe Bootie (tan)

Mandala – Omochi Bracelet (mesh) (sahara brown) & Anuttra Ring (mesh) (brown/sepia)

SLink – Mesh Hands (mesh) (bag l & relax r)

Delicious Denim

With the cooler months approaching and tons of new fall releases popping up all over the grid, I thought I would blog a comparison of a few of my favorite pairs of mesh jeans. The fact that they can go with just about anything makes having several different colors and styles in your wardrobe a must have.

From top to bottom:

Maitreya  – Zipper Skinny Jeans (mesh) (#2)

Mon Tissu – Nora Skinny Jeans (mesh) (faded)

Ricielli – Anna Mesh Jeans (mesh) (#02)

(Also wearing the Womens Natural Mesh Barefeet from SLink)

Hot Pants

As vintage as hot pants are, I think that they can also be just as modern. Paired with the right tops and accessories, they can easily be considered classy, rather than slutty.

So, on a recent shopping expedition I decided to pair these hot pants from d. Select by Deetalez that I stumbled across while digging through my inventory, with a simple classic white t-shirt from Entente. Since I just so happened to be hitting Gos this week, I thought that the open-toed Storm sandals were the perfect match.

What are your opinions on hot pants? Do you think they can be ultra-modern or are they better left in the past? Don’t be shy! If you have an outfit featuring these super-sexy shorts, share it!

My Outfit:

d. Select – High Raise Hot Pants (brown) (tinted to black)

Entente – Classic Tee (white) (short cuffs)

Gos – Storm Sandals (black leather)

LaGyo – Alice Earrings

Milk Motion – Studded Clutch (leather black) (the Arcade)

Elikatira – Away Hair (red 10)

Steinwerk – Aviator glasses

Ricielli – Margot Belt (black)
