31-10-18 autumnal meditation

I love chrysanthemums this colour in the physical world and so I had to buy the LODE kiku (chrysanthemum) bouquet which has a texture change HUD to give several lovely colour combinations. I was also pleased to discover the new-to-me spectacledchic brand, which seems to specialise in designs that I like. I fatpacked the skirt, which means I can make all sorts of combinations in different panels and pockets.

04-10-18 new suit

I am in love with my new hair from Argrace. Until now they hadn’t done blue hair (nor any hair I could tint blue) but now they have a completely new set of colours and new styles as well. This one has a nice low fringe, strands of hair at the front, and a beautiful waterfall of hair at the back.

My suit is a 100% donation item by LUXE from the charity event, Rock Your Rack,┬áin aid of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. It comes with a roomy matching handbag and shoes, but instead of the matching shoes, I’m wearing Euphoma flats by Empire. These remind me of a pair of cream leather flats I had years ago, with just the same suede tie over the instep. These shoes come with a HUD which allows you to change the tie, the main part of the shoe and the sole separately, and there are loads of colour choices.

04-08-18 kimono and hat

Sadly it’s the last Kurenai, the source of my hat and kimono, but there are still a couple of weeks before it closes. This hat is called “Midsummer straw hat” and it seems just the thing for keeping cool in a summer heatwave. The cutest thing about this kimono is the back of the obi, which is in the form of a neko (cat) and I’ve shown that in the 2nd picture.

13-07-18 scattering the water

As usual, my visit to the Japonica event meant I tried on lots of yukata and kimono, and this is the first one I invested in (kimono are definitely an investment, not an extravagance). Sakka’s Studio do lovely things, and I thought that this orange version of the 2018 summer kimono was particularly striking. I decided not to wear any accessories on my Magika hair, but this butterfly fluttered down onto my head, perhaps attracted by the water I was scattering onto the pathway from the uchimizu…..

10-07-18 high summer hat

There are lots of summery events around, and it’s a good time for hats, flowers and butterflies. The poppy wreath is from a gacha dispensing wreaths and bouquets of big poppies at The Chapter Four (July round) and I’m wearing it with Moon’s hair-with-hat (there is a styling HUD that also allows you to have hair cascading over one shoulder, and texture change for the ribbon and straw). Whilst going round the current Japonica event I picked up the butterfly (which leaves a cloud of particle butterflies as you walk along, if you want) and the fan (click to fold or unfold it).

21-06-18 good doggie
Here I am enjoying solstice day with a cute doggie from Schadenfreude (he rolls from side to side!) and a few other spoils from current events, particularly Rewind and Kustom9. These Meva trousers are a great boho find, with loads of different options for the fabric frill at the bottom, and several colours for the jeans. As usual, I like to mix in some old favourites, including the Truth hair and one of my favourite blouses ever for summer days.

16-05-18 zaara and sn@tch

This new skirt from sn@tch comes with a HUD with a huge number of pretty colours: I dug out a favourite blouse from Mimikri and I was easily able to match up the blue embroidery. The outfit is perfect for breezing round in warm weather. I hadn’t got quite the right sandals, so I went over to Zaara to buy a pair that suited my mood. The area outside the main shop is full of opportunities to stroll about and pose (I’m in front of a house that is a rare in one of her home gachas).
