Pumpkin Spice

On Your Toes Blog: Pumpkin Spice

Orange has never been a favorite color, but sometimes I like to shake things up by challenging myself to work with the unfamiliar. I decided to embrace orange and combine it with graphic shapes and prints to create a series of looks that I call Pumpkin Spice.

For my first look I played with the scale of a dot covered outerwear coat by Saikin over tailored shorts by House of Fox, I loved the way the texture of the coat was layered shades of orange, rust and black in multiple dot sizes. The boots are a brand new release from Babette Ultsch over at Kitties Lair, if you have never checked out the footwear she designs you are missing a real treat, her latest are rigged mesh and the perfect fit over my socks by Maitreya.
I took advantage of some great orangey accessories, the flower by Mon Tissu was intended for the lapel, but works great in my hair too! I added some pretty pearly jewelry by Donna Flora and grabbed a bag by DDL. Never underestimate the power of a great bag in SL... I can't ever have enough of them!

For the second look I fell in love with the graphic print of the Graph It Up babydoll dress, and Flat Cube earrings, both by Maylee Oh from The Secret Store. More great footwear from Kitties Lair here, the Bulldog Booties have a great modern shape and look sassy over socks. Additional accessories here are by Redgrave, a great new watch, Chained Desire in Silver, and some sexy shades called Laurita, both fit in with the simplicity of this traffic stopping ensemble.

Lastly, I classed it up with this sexy mesh June Dress from Celoe, and necklace and earrings by Caroline's, out today at Cinema. The houndstooth booties, Hunter by Gos, add the eyecatching print this outfit needed, worn here with simple black tights, they strike a balance between the bright orange of the dress and the intricate pattern of the boots, neither steal the show. Skins for this post are by League, the Jen skins have great make-ups and lip options, and one of my favorite hairbases that are part of the skin, they made it possible for me to mix and match hair pieces from booN - a collection of bits and pieces, bangs and ponies, that can give you a one of a kind look, I have never regretted buying them.
