18-01-18 beauty dreams kimono 2

This is the second kimono I bought at the Japonica event. Japonica just ended, but I’m sure you’ll find this newly released kimono at the Silvery K mainstore. It comes with a separate shawl, which I’m wearing here, that drapes delicately over your upper arms. There are several kimono colour choices (as you might guess, this is “pink”!), and for each individual colour you have a HUD with a range of choices for different parts of the obi, the underskirt and the shawl. You don’t get all the HUD colour choices for all the kimono, so a bonus in the fatpack is being able to do a complete mix and match. From the front you can see your feet peeking from under the underskirt, so you also can show off your geta or high heels.

08-01-18 travelling best

It’s 2018 and here I am in Mopire at the station, really to travel onwards for 2018. I need a large suitcase, because I’ve been spending my Lindens at Japonica and the case is crammed full of fancy new kimono. This one seemed the most sensible travel kimono though – with a nice warm colour-change coatigan over the top.

08-12-17 ringing in xmas
One of today’s unmissable Fifty Linden Friday items is this car-with-Christmas-Tree by Anhelo. Its only drawback is that it is 36 LI – though it is mod, so you could probably remove the tree and put in one that is less prims. However, it is very cute as is.
Most of my outfit is not new – I loved this sweater last year, and so I hauled it out as soon as Xmas approached. The bell (it has an animation when you touch it) and the necklace are both free gifts under The Arcade tree, so if you can get in there, head for the tree in the centre of the building.

05-10-17 sheila black kite 2

Autumn has arrived in Second Life and in my physical world. So that means moving to warm clothes, nice cuddly warm cardigans. Also one of my favourite flowers, which I know as michaelmas daisies (also known as “September”, and which LODE has called asters, which may be the correct genus)- that’s in season now and I love to see it in gardens and also in a vase 😉

LODE has a great gacha with hand-held stems or head wreaths of the flowers (at the Chapter 4) and I’m wearing both. The stem of flowers is so lifelike!

However, although I like the warm and wistful tones of autumn, colour and blue skies are still nice. I happened to visit the Black Kite sim, and that’s where this was taken. The poses are by Creamshop, which is no longer inworld.

24-09-17 shin akaba playing the game

The title reflects the fact that I’ve put together an outfit that ISN’T from the latest events. In fact the trousers (system layer) are about 9 years old (showing that there WAS some good texturing already in 2008). The look came about because I wandered into the Cute Or Die mainstore and saw this schoolgirl-ish outfit. It’s a bit short for me, but only adding pants made it looked unbalanced. Finally I fished out this fringed skirt from Go! that I bought at their mainstore a few months ago and that seemed to complete it. I’d already matched up tartan boots from Livalle (one of their amazing Fifty Linden Friday deals from a little while back). The shots were taken in Shin Akiba – this Japanese dystopia sim (which has a cinema, hotsprings baths, cafe etc.) almost closed, but it’s hanging in there at the moment and is a great place to go for this kind of photo.

05-09-17 arcade after 1

I’m not wearing anything from the Arcade in this picture (although it’s taken at the end of the Arcade pier) – I snapped it when I’d finished pouring linden into the Arcade machines and before I unpacked at home! I am very fond of the boho look, and I was pleased when I found I could wear this loose kimono over a long boho skirt (disclosure: it does actually clip a bit at the back, but I love it so much…. with a slimmer skirt it wouldn’t be a problem).

The skirt has a lovely satiny-velvety texture and a flowing shape, and the kimono has a generous HUD to choose different colours or patterns.
