October – the perfect pause between summer and winter. I have always loved the crisp, cool days of October…..the beauty of the hills, the fallen leaves dancing in the breeze, and the hint of wood smoke in the air. Although it signaled the close of summer, it also marked the end of the dreaded ragweed season that plagued my childhood. Luckily, I now live in a part of the country where I don’t have to worry about sneezing and sniffling through the end of summer, nevertheless, I think I will always treasure autumn.
These Boots are Made For…
…traipsing through the leaves. One thing I especially appreciated about the arrival of fall was pulling out cool weather clothing, and, of course, shopping for new favorites! I recently discovered these amazing, over-the-knee Alanis boots, which are a free gift from Hilly Haalan for members of the Hilly Haalan Fashions group. I opted for a basic black hue, but could have also used the texture-change Hud to select solid brown or a floral pattern in gray or yellow-gold. With realistic wrinkles, and a figure-hugging fit, this pair of high heeled footwear will keep my feet and legs toasty and stylishly warm, well into late autumn.

Sassy Sleeveless Frock
As part of Fifty5 Thursday, I scooped up this belted Gabriella dress at BlackRose Fashion for only 75L. With a sexy slit in the side, and a plunging neckline, this tailored, sophisticated dress showed off my curves. It, too, comes with a texture-change HUD, which makes it a versatile addition to any wardrobe. The special offering will be available only through Sunday, so if you love this dress as much as I do, don’t hesitate to TP on over to the shop. The sale boards are located to the left of the main service desk in the center of the store.

Ripley and I are thrilled that we made it to Fall Break, and look forward to extra free time to discover some budget-friendly Fabulous Finds to share with you all. First, though, we have to survive tire shopping for the old truck… Fun times! I just hope I can convince the pupster not to christen the tires right away. I want them looking pretty for at least a few days. Wish me luck!
