16-02-19 posing at the seaside

A quiet stroll by the beach at the CRATE store was the opportunity for these pictures. I am veering towards spring with the lovely tiered maxi skirt from Coco and a beautifully textured (I think – thick silk crepe) blouse from spectacledchic. The Truth hair can be worn as an updo like this, or in a loose plait down the back.

18-01-19 barerose kimono

B@rerose has been in SL ever since I joined in 2007, and through the years the shop has remained pretty much the same – a vast place with acres of vendor boards, with high quality outfits at reasonable prices. They have a strong focus on Fantasy and roleplay items, and also traditional Japanese and Chinese dress, but there are also some good everyday Western outfits there too. They do outfits to fit all types and shapes of MesH (and classic) bodies, male and female. They also have a random draw of items every 5 minutes or so, with anyone in the shop automatically entered, so while I was shopping for this lovely garment I also acquired a free avatar for a strange fishy creature. On previous visits I have got a free katana on a stand, bikini, and various other items. The “raffle” items can only be obtained this way, they are not on sale. If you haven’t been, it is worth a visit. This is the link to the “female mesh release” area http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bare%20Rose/111/68/30

03-01-19 japonica kimono

As usual, there are many attractive kimono released for the new year. This picture was taken at Japonica, where in addition to the shops they also have scenes like this one, complete with poses, for you to take memorable shots.

The kimono is a new release from Agata Mode and the obi and obi ornaments, and the inner collar, are texture change. The hair is also at Japonica, but is an earlier release. It comes complete with colour/texture change hair ornaments and comb.

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…..
