When the skies of November turn gloomy

The sun has left us and probably will not return until next June. Oh, sure we might get a glimpse for a minute here and there and maybe even a teasing hour of clear skies, but winter has settled in with the clouds and the rain and the dour weather. Thankfully, we can teleport to other places in a heartbeat, to sunny Cuba or Costa Rica, to Singapore or India or Africa and all the sunny, happy climes. But for today, I will dress for the gloomy November skies.

My friend Miffy made the scarf and leggings I am wearing.  They legwarmers are made with prim, not sculpties, so they are perhaps more uniform than you would expect. However, I love the texture and the fit. The knit dress is from Skin Flicks – part of a review pack of knits that I fell in love with. Tis the season of good knits and these are excellent. I particularly love the blousing of the sleeves right above the wrist.

I took the scarf off so you could see the lovely cowl neckline. It attaches to the spine so it’s no problem with most necklaces which tend to attach to the chest. The scarf attached to the chest, but I made a copy of it and attached it to the spine as well.

The necklace and earrings are by Lucas Lameth Designs – formerly EarthStones.

    Nice piece, but part of me wishes you hadn’t used that title. I come from Michigan originally, where we still remember the ghost of the Edmund Fitzgerald, and mid-November always brings that song out on the radio.

    Hmmm; we need a region where an avatar can experience what a Great Lakes November “hurricane” is really like….

    Coming from Minnesota, that song always take me home…especially since my dad was a singer in a local band and his voice and Lightfoot’s were hard to tell apart.
