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).

11-05-18 glasses

As usual there are some great deals for Fifty Linden Friday today, but in particular I love these glasses from Balaclava. You get sunglass and (worn here) reading glass options. There are silver and gold versions for flf, but these jade coloured ones are free and just go perfectly with my Tram hair.

26-04-18 the outfit at fantasy fair

Fantasy Faire is still underway (here is the list of designers, with links to their shops in the faire https://fantasyfairesl.wordpress.com/shopping-2018/) Each shop has one or more items where your money is donated to the American Cancer Society. My skirt and hair are donation items from Dreaming Thicket and Analog Dog. The skirt is just my style (there is also a matching blouse with headscarf, not shown) and the hair frames the face really nicely. It has a lovely long loose plait (see the picture below) which fitted between my wings. I also picked up the butterflies necklace and the wings at the Faire, and the locations are gorgeous: this is a garden sim, but the whole Faire is one big photo op.
