Let’s Hear It For October!

3 10 2008


Ah, October. That’s when Autumn truly begins for me. I love everything about this month. The cool days and even cooler nights, that scent on the wind that lets you know fall is here, watching the leaves begin to change color, and of course Halloween. This month, more than any other, fills with me joy.
So expect a lot of Fall Fashion and Halloween posts from me this month. There will be the occasional “OMG you must see this even though it has nothing to do with Fall” post, of course, but the majority of my focus will be on what to wear in order to look fashionable and be comfortable in those cooler temperatures.

For my first official “Fall Fashion” post, I decided to talk about some recent purchases. Cajsa gave me a tip the other night that Frangipani Designs was having a huge moving sale. Everything was massively discounted. I’d never been to Frangipani Designs, but grabbed Rhodesy and tp’d over there as fast as I could. (I do love a sale.)

Rach Snookums of Frangipani Designs has a lot of lovely stuff in her store, but it was the “Fall Fashions” that caught my eye immediately. My first purchase was the red Hoodie.

I love hoodies. They’re just so cute and comfy. Of course, after I’d bought it I discoverd Rhodesy bought it too, but in purple of course. We also both bought the Entourage jeans in Celestial, but I bought the black ones and she bought blue. So, I decided we should definitely shoot these outfits together.

Before I continue with the photos, I’d like to mention that all of the photos for this post were taken at the Impressione Conservatory, which I discoverd while checking out the Weekend of Beauty event. Impressione is, according to their website http://impressionegroup.com/Impressione.html, “a full service virtual world marketing agency, offering the complete range of services to develop your brand, both in-world and out.” They are masters at planning special events and marketing, so if you are in need of one of those services, definitely check them out. While perusing the Weekend of Beauty event, I fell in love with their Conservatory SIM. JennyH GossipGirl of Impressione was nice enough to give me access to their SIM to shoot these photos. Thanks, Jenny!

So…Fall Fashions.

Here are the Hoodies and Celestial Entourage Jeans from Frangipani Designs.
I love how detailed these are. The zipper and the even the pocket on the front of the hoodie is wonderfully done. The hood on the back is a prim attachment, but it fits well and needed no adjustment on my av. If you decide you’d rather not wear the prim, the texture on the top is drawn so that it still looks like a hoodie, even if you don’t wear the hood prim. And the texture on the jeans is very whimsical and fun. Because it’s a casual outfit, your choices for hair are vast. You can do a cute and casual updo, like Rhodesy, or opt for a cool, chic hat, like I did. Either way, the outfit is perfect for a day in the apple orchard or admiring fall scenery.

The other outfit we got at Franigpani Designs was the Floral Print Henley and Belted Wool Trousers. I actually bought the fatpack of this outfit. Here, I’m modeling the Red Henley with the black trousers. Rhodesy has on the Blue Henley with the Brown Trousers.

Again, same outfit, two completely different looks depending on the hair and shoes you pair with it.


I also could not resist the Distressed Suede Coat in Espresso.


I adore the texture on this, and the clasps on the front of it are quite well done. I also like that you can turn it into a jacket by taking off the prim bottom.
A lovely, versatile piece for your fall wardrobe.

I think the sale at Franigpani Designs is still going on, but even it it’s not, check it out. It’s a lovely place to find those fall essentials.
