The Fall Line

What up what up everybody!? I seriously should have called THIS one Lazy Blogger. I mean honestly? A month? Granted my RL has been crazy busy, so excuse me ladies and gents. Anyway, I’ve had some things building up into my inventory so it’s time let it all out. Okay, not ALL of it because I’d have way too many pictures but the highlights is good enough right? Let’s hop into it:

First up here we’ve got a side-by-side of a few things that came out of the latest LeLutka collection. The left features a couple of things that I wanted to talk about. Although it’s actually underneath the huge scarf, there’s this fantastic new, sheer shirt with a lace-front neckline that looks very basic but is very well put together called Portivo. You’ll see in my future posts when I get into the Spring/Summer 2010 shows that a lot of designers got into the sheer fabrics. Essentially this trend is a bit early for the season (for the northern hemisphere), but that’s why threw the big ol’ scarf from The Dogs onto it to keep it warm. The second look up there is also another LeLutka pick. I really dig the light blue going on with this jacket and the tie around the waist really made me want to snag this coat because I don’t really have anything else like it. Draping over the top again is a much smaller, but very nice blue scarf from the new LeLutka collection as well. I don’t know if you know this, but…I’m kind of a big fan of denim. The jeans in this first pic are awesome from Arai. They’ve got a great color to them with a little sandblasting down the front and they’re just an amazing pair of easy-breezy everyday jeans. The other shot features a pair of jeans that are actually way cheap; I mean L$50 cheap from PixelDolls. What I really like about them is that they’re an older pair of jeans that still holds their own fashionably with rolled cuffs that a lot of designers were dropping on the runways.

The look at the dark side of fall here features a couple of different designers out there. Starting on the left we’ve got this fantastically put-together coat from Argrace with a nice v-neck brown sweater underneath from IZUMIYA and a great pair of jeans from COCO. We first got to see some real menswear from COCO in the form of a pair of shoes that showed up during one of the CSR stamps events. In a somewhat recent trip with a friend to COCO for the shirts that wrap around your waist, I noticed that there was a growing selection of menswear to be had at COCO. I bought more than I probably should have, per always, but from what I’ve worn I have not been disappointed in the slightest. One of the interesting things about these jeans that I thought was very well done is how the seam sort of crosses over the front of the leg on the sculpted bottoms and the texture on the jeans follows suit perfectly. The look on the right shows a very nice homage to the Where The Wild Things Are movie. Now I know you’re saying, “IT’S NOT EXACT TO THE MOVIE!” Personally, I love the twist on it and how it’s more of the Wild Things than it is of Max’s official costume. I also love how it gives you that feel of fur without the 400 prims that go into say a boa.

A final thing of note throughout all of these looks is the hair I’m wearing in 3 of the 4 of them. The over-the-eyes sort of wispy hair comes from CheerNo Destiny. To be honest, I felt like originally that a lot of his hairstyles were just way too editorial for me to even try to pull off. I don’t have that sort of bleeding edge fashion sense and that’s not really my style, but when I came across three new hairstyles from CheerNo I knew I had to pick them up after trying on the demos. The blacks set that I always get are pretty good, but to be honest the brown textures for his hair are pretty awesome.

That pretty much wraps up what I’ve got for this one. I have a few things from SL still to blog and then I plan on hitting up all of the Spring/Summer 2010 images and bringing you some of my favorite looks. Adios muchachos y te veo pronto.
