05-03-17-happy-spring-head-and-shoulders-prac

I’m celebrating spring, but still it’s not THAT warm so I’ve bundled up in a jacket and pashmina. In fact, by mistake, I’m bundled up in TWO pashminas, one embrodered and one plain, but I decided I quite liked the look. I have also layered three of LODE’s headpieces (from previous gachas) to get a “bursting into spring” feel. The birch trees and ground texture are by Skye, plum tree by Frog’s Garden and white flower field by Hayabusa. You can’t see my shoes, but the Gretchen flats (in blush pink) go perfectly with the outfit.

16-02-17-snow-me-and-kittyPeople are starting to let spring creep into their sims, but certainly where I am outside SL it is still cold weather and this suede coat with its cosy collar is welcome. The suede texture is gorgeous. Although I’m longing for spring, snowy SL sims are really pretty, so I’m having a last tour of them while I can. I’ve donned sunglasses to protect my eyes from the strong sunlight bouncing off the snow, but I didn’t wear a hat because I didn’t want to muss up the new hair from Magika.

I’m in  Frog’s Garden and I was happy to see that they had opened again. They have a great garden centre, but it’s also a nice sim just to wander round, with a very cute cafe on top of the hill.

19-01-17-warm-blue-outfit-where

This is a dull grey rainy time of year in the UK, and so although I am still snuggling in warm wool in SL, I’m starting to seek out sims with sun, sea, and summer birds.

I did a happy dance when I saw that this dress, and in particular THESE BOOTS were made for classic avatars as well as mesh bodies. The suede boots are super-gorgeous, with great detail (especially at the back, where there’s a tie fastening) and they fit perfectly. The sweater-dress has a high polo neck and the Zaara pashmina also fits over it well (there are 3 versions in the pashmina pack: rigged, rigged for over clothes – the one I’m wearing – and unrigged).

17-01-17-formal-kimono-in-spring

It may not actually be spring yet in my physical world, but I can enjoy the chime of fur-in amongst spring blossom in Second Life. There were two major events which featured kimono (Kimono-ichi and Japonica), both of which I am too late to blog, but Sakka’s Studio has a big main store and this elegant formal kimono is probably there by now. It includes tabi and zori (Japanese shoes and socks). I added a quirky pair of glasses from Naminoke.

15-12-16 angel dress head shot.jpgThis Christmas costume started with the wings (there is a pack that includes these multiple wings, a single pair of wings, and various feathery bits too) which you have just a couple of days to get at the Creators’ Collection Box. I liked them so much I got them in 3 colours. Then I saw the dress, and knew it was the one for me: I’m a very on trend angel who likes to look a bit edgy. The other must-haves were the beautifully delicate hair ornaments which were on sale at the Liaison Collaborative. Then I was on a quest for hair that was light and flowing, but wasn’t going to interfere with my wings, and this latest design from Magika fitted very well.
