The end of the month is often slow for bloggers. Fewer new releases, hunts coming to an end -- not as much newness on the horizon. Happily, for those of us with the media handle, October doesn't seem to be one of those months. Lots of designers are already looking past our October 31 and Nov 1 holidays and into the beginnings of winter.

Fall is my favorite time of year. Cool crisp days -- with sun if we are lucky. But beyond that there are the quieter days of winter. Clouds and grayness urge us to slow down, take stock, go within.

Among some of this weekend's new releases are the Irina skins from Amacci.  My favorites are the goth skins, the contrast of the makeups against the paleness is striking. I was also impressed by the eyelashes. No prims are involved in this shot and sometimes  -- like when you are wearing glasses -- it is SO nice to be able to look good while doing without your favorites eye adornments.

My outfit is part of a large release of basics from [SE*Designz]. With turtlenecks, sweaters, shirts and leggings in a variety of colors, you can easily find those missing pieces to your everyday wardrobe.
