A Little Fun With Black and White

I had bought this wonderful Gizza black and white dot maxi skirt but had not worn it yet.  I had paired one the other colorful Gizza maxi’s with a lovely blouse from COCO and I wanted to see what I could cook up with this.  I immediately thought of a dress that I had bought at Leezu way way way back when I was just a little itty bitty newbie and I was off to the races.

 I knew exactly what top I wanted to wear with this skirt.  I have worn and worn this Leezu Noir Mina Flexi dress and the Miriam Flexi Dress.  They are pieces I have never boxed up and stored away.  Three years in someones SL closet is a long time but they are oldies but goodies.  I loved the difference in the size of the dots and the little fur wrap was just great to give it a bit of a fall look. It just goes to show you how long Leezu Baxter has been making quality clothing.

I had recently gotten this Stradivarius hair from Vanity Hair.  The twist and turns of the hair are so elegant but edgy and artistic too.  The hair was really nice with the Lavin gown from Agnes Finney I had had on earlier and I thought it worked here too.  I had seen the Nardcotix hats around on some different blogs so I had to check them out,  You know I love hats!!! This is the Innocence Ribbonata Hat called Kissed.  I was a bit squirmy about ti cause it is sort of snake like in it’s appearance but I thought at least in SL was not going to scare me .    The only other thing I needed to add was some earrings and I have on more oldies here, Lagyo Noir Sacre Coeur – great black and white earrings.

Once again I am bringing you a fall mix and match.  I love the fall and can’t wait to get out my favorite things and have a grand time wearing them.  I really love some of the cute jackets I am seeing out on the grid in stores and have on another wonderful one today.  I have mixed it with some oldies but goodies in my inventory to get them a fresh new look.

Here I am wearing one of the wonderful new jackets from Osakki called Artica.  The jacket comes with a really cool avante garde skirt too but I was really taken with the cut of the jacket.  A modern day kimono feel – fresh and loose.  It has a bolero length and fur pattern making it a great look for fall or winter.  The sleeves are really full and you can layer like mad under them.

I am wearing a tried and true Leezu blouse – Valerie in bark matched up with some fun snake skin looking pants from Chantkate for Nova 2011.  I think this just makes a great look for heading to a fashion show or out shopping.  My shoes are also from Osakki and are in Ink.  I love the studded detailing on the toe and the sassy chain on that back of the heel – very well thought out and great detail to the shoes.  Thank God I am only wearing them in SL though and the sky high heel would really be torture.

I have added bracelets from Mandala and Zaara.  I am also using a Mandala necklace and the Saicho belt in chocolate.  This is one of my favorite hair styles from Exile – it is so cute I have almost every color.  The hair is called Amira and I really like the softness of this classic Dutch boy cut.  Starbucks is calling my name for my morning coffee so dashing out so enjoy your day.
