::Emjay:: Sash Tops – Inspired By Fall

21 09 2009

For my second post about the ::Emjay:: Sash Tops, I wanted to do some fall inspired looks.  The top comes in both beige and brown, and I thought it could be fun to celebrate the transitioning seasons by pairing this lovely top with some more traditional autumn items.  For the beige top, I knew immediately what I wanted to do.

The tweed Capri pants from Pippa by MichaMi were the perfect welcome-to-fall item to pair with the beige Sash top.  The only problem was that the colors didn’t quite match, so I made a copy and tinted them a dark brown to match the design on the top.  I’m so glad those perfectly textured pants are mod.  For shoes, I wanted some lovely brown boots to go with the outfit, and I chose the Danielle boots by Pixel Mode.  They were the perfect compliment to the Capri pants.

I also knew immediately that the Chloe hair by Maitreya was the way to go.  With its super-cute, golden blonde locks and tintable hat, it was the perfect compliment to the outfit.  I went with the Shiloh (Honey) skin in Coconut by ::Exodi:: to continue the brownness of the outfit.  The jewelry is from ::Exodi:: and Zaara.

I shot these photos on Oubliette, which is the home of Balderdash – one of my favorite jewelry stores in all of SL.  If you’ve not taken the time to explore this wondrous SIM, you really should set out and explore.  There are some lovely hidden gems to discover.  Right now is the perfect time to go because the land is in transition from summer to autumn.  It’s a wonderful transformation to witness.


For the brown Sash top, I wanted to do a little boho chic look, so I paired it with the jeweled jeans from Zaara and the Maitreya Dune boots in brown.  I adore these boots, but of course I love everything Onyx LeShelle does.

That includes the Apple II hair, which is what put the boho chic concept in my head to begin with.  I added the hair beds from Earthstones along with the Jharna bracelet in Attraction.

I kept the Patra Gold Wire bracelets from Zaara and added the Urvi chandelier earrings.  I love the gold leaves on both the bracelet and the earrings.  It was the perfect little touch to this look. 


I shot these photos at The Far Away, a build by AM Radio.  This is the first time I’ve shot there, and it really is an interesting place to visit.  Of course, you don’t have to go to a wheat field to wear boho chic.  I was just as comfortable shopping at Le.Look! later that evening.

Two fall inspired looks with the fabulous Sash tops by ::Emjay::.  I’m not sure I will achieve my goal of building looks out of each color option, but I think with this post and the last you can get a good idea of just how versatile these tops are.
