I have to start this blog post with a bit of a happy dance. Why? Well, my Denver Broncos won their opening game yesterday! Go Peyton Manning! I’m not like a crazed football fan, but I do love my Broncos. See, I moved to Colorado in 2006, but I’d already been a Broncos fan since 1989. Kind of an odd choice for a girl from NJ, but… well. There may have been a cute boy involved. His name was Rick and he was from Colorado originally, and he was a football player and we were 13 and “dated” for all of 3 weeks before he dumped me for a girl named Starr. No, really. That was her name. With two Rs… I’d been following the Broncos because I didn’t really have a favorite football team.
Well, my relationship with Rick was short lived, but I’ve loved the Broncos ever since! That 13 year-old girl could never have imagined someday she’d actually live in Colorado. But, I do… and this time of year, I am really feeling the blue & orange color combos as a result! Which brings me to my first look for this post… this recent sweater release is one of a couple of items I have from coldLogic that combines orange & blue! I’ve even wondered if the powers that be at coldLogic are Broncos fans. Probably not, but let me pretend, okay? I paired this top with these adorable fall tweeds from BOOM for Collabor88… I seriously need to go back because I want ALL THE COLORS. The hair is Briony from Truth’s latest release. And now I can admit that I am dorky enough about my Broncos and the orange & blue that I bought these deck flats from G Field just because they were the right orange to go with this look. And though this pose Rad made is technically for male avs, I think it worked okay for this pic! And once again, I went to scribbled hearts to shoot because it’s just so perfect for my autumn picture needs!
Now, I have to admit something. I’m not usually a big fan of animal prints. They just aren’t, well… me. But this dress from Valentina E. Couture for faMESHed is so sexy and chic and I just loved it. I also loved this hair from Wasabi Pills, which is another faMESHed item I just had to have! It’s really versatile. The clips make it very cute, but the overall feel is so sleek and sophisticated.
My lipstick is from Izzie’s Vibrant Lipstick pack and I loved how closely it matched the purple in the dress.
Finally, if you haven’t heard about the Summer Harvest Hunt you should definitely check it out. There are a ton of great gifts to be had. I’m not much for hunting, as I get easily frustrated and impatient, but for this hunt I broke form and grabbed several things. But what I wanted most was this adorably sexy top from Sleeping Koala and these patched cords from evolve. This new hair Azrea is from Truth. It’s a definite favorite. I want my RL hair like this! I’m sitting in my Autumn Garden from Tranquility Way Station. I got this last year and I still love it! It has a ton of cute poses and it’s pretty decor!
I have so much more to share with you… but alas, it must wait. Stay tuned!
