Finals Prep:
I selected 10 am slt 10/28 for my finals and sent a notecard to Laylah. Time to check the new store out and pick an outfit.  LOL!  (I knew I wouldn't be able to pick just one.)  When I got there, I purchased 5 "fall" type outfits and began the process of deciding which one to wear.  It was not easy because the mesh detail of some of the outfits was not very strong.  Finally, I chose the sweater + high waist pants combination in black.  Laylah had asked us to accessorize and this was the best outfit to use as a canvas.  My final results incorporated a mesh corset, ankle boots, a gorgeous texture changing neck scarf, and a hair bow.  I took a picture of the final result next to the vendor picture of the main outfit.  Quite a difference!

The store is U.Refined and the designer is Rita Hazelnut.  It appears she is a fairly new vendor after I checked out her main store.  The store at CWS Fashion District is nicely laid out and not crowded.  The vendor images were easy to see and understand.

Finals Fall Style:
And here are some poses from my style.  I really love how the outfit turned out.  I prefer simple and sometimes forgo even wearing jewelry, but this one seems to be okay with the extras.  I love the black, white and red combination and often choose it in my daily SL clothing.  As you can see I gravitated toward my personal favorite with the zebra print I adore thrown in for accent.  When I look at it, I see a mixture of styles, ranging from 80's Madonna to different textures, clothing pieces, and clolors of Vivienne Westwood to a clean, classic elegance.  I even tried different shoes to evoke more of a Vivienne Westwood feel, but couldn't find any better than the cute 80's style ankle boots.  Images of Vivienne W. evoke the 80's with her orange hair and vivid colors that Cyndi Lauper styled in her first awesome video, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun."

Finals Fall Description:
Hello & Welcome to today's Finals styling in Fall theme.  I am Caralyne Melody, an aspiring model at CWS, Simply The Best.

My fall style begins with a U.Refined sweater and leggings outfit in black.  The top has a lovely lace inset at the neck and over the cleavage.  It is long-sleeved, befitting the onset of cool weather.  To set off the basic black canvas of pants and top, I added a red mesh corset with a black bow cinching the waist.  To continue wit the eye-popping red, I added red ankle boots reminiscent of the 80s.  Jewelry did not seem to fit with the styling, so instead I turned to a long retro neck scarf with a zebra print and red fringe.  And finally, as the cherry on the sundae, I added a red hair bow.  I really love how the outfit turned out.  I love the black, white and red combination and often choose it in my daily SL clothing.

As you can see I gravitated toward my favorite red with the zebra print I adore thrown in for accent.  When I look at it, I see a mixture of styles, ranging from 80's Madonna to different textures, clothing pieces, and clolors of Vivienne Westwood to a clean, classic elegance.

Thank you to everyone for coming to the show and many thanks to our judge, announcer, and most of all to Anrol & Steve who make it possible for us to share our styling creativity in this wonderful venue.  When you have a moment and enjoy reading about SL fashion, please check out my blog at http://caralynemelody.blogspot.com/.

Finals is such an anti-climax.  Once you make it past midterms, its is really home-free. And I always feel melancholy when classes are over.  Although busy in RL, I love being busy in SL too.  Classes everyday were so satisfying.  Hmm... I will have to consider the advanced class and the Doctorate. 

Lizzy and I were scheduled for finals at the same time.  Laylah had Lizzy do styling first with Beach and Dome compulsory poses after.  Lizzy was released and it was my turn.  I did my styling and compulsory as Laylah instructed.  And then we talked a bit about how awesome CWS is and how I won't be wandering far this time.  It's home after all.  :))
