Calendar Girl: Septembre

September has always been one of my favorite months, the warmth of summer lingering and slowly giving way to the crispness of my beloved autumn, the promise of a new school year, and with it, new school clothes. The septembre outfit makes me think of the kind of thing that would be perfect for the first day of school. I personally always liked to dress up just a bit on my first day. This outfit is the kind of thing that would work just right. The short sleeves and skirt cool enough for late summer but with very fall colors that will transition nicely into fall and winter. When you feel like wearing a more cool weather look, the outfit will look adorable paired with knee socks or tights and a sweater.

The shirt has sculptie sleeves with a bit of fullness to them, a square neckline with a ruffle and some ruching on the bust which has an empire seam. The line of the skirt is fitted from the high waist and some soft fullness from below the hips, a definite 40s vibe to it. The buckle around the belt is a nod to nouveau though. The outfit comes in 3 color palettes and as always, a limited release skin. When September is over, the outfit stays and the skin is gone forever. This month I've decided to create 3 makeups to go with the 3 outfits. I didn't intend for it to work this way but while I did create a makeup to go with each specific outfit, I noticed that they all work with more than one of sets so don't worry about wearing it 'right'. I've also been thinking about writing a bit about real life makeup and offering some tips from time to time. Anyone who reads this, please leave a comment and let me know if it might be something you would be interested in. I have been a bit reluctant to post about anything not strictly related to Second Life fashion because of the Fashion Planet aggregator.

I would love to hear some real life makeup tips! :) I think it would be especially interesting to hear if real life products inspired any of the colors/looks you have done in your skins..or vice versa.
