Since you went away the days grow long, and soon i’ll hear old winter’s song.
But I miss you most of all my darling, when autumn leaves start to fall.
~ Autumn Leaves, by Joseph Kosma ~
Monday is here already and I spent most of my day baking our Christmas cake. I make it nice and early and then feed it around once a week with some brandy or similar, and then by the time we come to eat it at Christmas it is rich and moist and (hopefully) delicious. Autumn is such a beautiful month, but because I love Christmas so much, this season is lost on me in a way as I am planning and organising for the festivities at the end of December. I would say this is because I am a wife and mother now, but in truth I have always been this way, wishing the days, weeks and months to fly by. It is sad really because autumn is such a visual month, the world around us changes spectacularly and prepares for the imminent colder months. I suppose we should all slow down and enjoy each day, week and month as it comes. Life is too short to long for tomorrow, make the most of today.
So with that in mind, I push Christmas, cakes and all things festive out of my mind (and my blog) for now and turn my attention back to more important things – FAD. Today I would like to introduce a brand which I am new to, but already a big fan of, Vowtte.
Vowtte designer, Estefani Avril, has brought us two fantastic items, perfectly suited to this months theme at FAD. First up is a lovely textured tunic with leggings named Akiko. This mesh outfit comes with a HUD containing 8 colour combinations and several versions of the two piece in classic and fit mesh, plus an option for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink bodies. I have to say in all honesty that I love this outfit and some of the styles shown below have been saved into my SL appearance tab. It just makes me want to curl up in front of a fire with a mug of cocoa.
Next up is Esther, a two toned rolled neck sweater. I pared it with jeans, but it would look great with a skirt, leggings or anything! Again there is a HUD with 8 colour choices and the aforementioned different versions to fit all shapes.
