There is a challenge from Peepsideshow to showcase items that weren’t bought at events (here). This is a new dress and sweater combination from !gO!, which I think has just been launched in the mainstore (where I bought it). The sweater has a great design at the back, so I’ve shown a back view first. Sweater and dress are bought separately, and there is also a neckscarf. On my feet are boots from Deadwool. I bought my first pair of these (in grey) at an event, but these brown ones are from the mainstore, where the full colour range is available. You can wear them with or without the thick woolly socks.

I’ve been a bit naughtier with the accessories. The necklace is ok, as it is only available on the Marketplace, as sadly Mustang Trading Post closed its inworld store. However, the hair is still out at the Crossroads (though I bought it in the last round). I love this hair. I did get the headband at – I think it was Midnight Madness. However the colour-change HUD was instore.

I had a fun time at the Moon Festival – in particular I’d recommend Pillows‘ lantern gacha (only 15 Linden for each lantern, and they are all pretty) and the various foodstuffs, some of which are free. I was wearing a casual and cosy outfit for a day out in early autumn: a woollen dress and undershirt and legwarmers to keep out the chill.

09-08-16 with peacock in the wild woodSome beautiful jewel-colour items from various current events. At this month’s collabor88 there is a set of peacocks from Jian: a companion, a wandering peacock and 2 static peacocks. The wandering and companion peacocks randomly furl and unfurl their tail feathers, and all 4 can be either classic peacock colour or white. Also from collabor88 is the mask, which you can see better in the 2nd picture. It’s scripted so that the “third eye” blinks. The skirt has been blogged a lot, as it is a great free Womanstuff hunt gift from Purple Moon and is texture change. The final two new items are the boho top from Imbue and the striking Wasabi Pills hair with its whispy little bunches (texture change ties).

27-07-16 on the bed clef de peau

I went to sanarae and I couldn’t resist sinking into this bed by Pillows – I did buy it, I didn’t just use it as a photo-op. This sleeveless coat and maxi skirt combination from Clef de Peau is very stylish, with a crisp linen feel and very nice tailoring. The coat and skirt can also be worn separately – as the coat is quite wide overthe hips, you would be able to get slim fitting trousers or a different contrrating skirt underneath.

I love all things kitty, and so I was quick to play the cute gacha from Mishmish at The Epiphany. I got the rare computer kitty, but also this “hold” kitty that seems to have nibbled his way through the white loaf.

The blouse is not new (I think it came out last year), but it is a real summer staple, available in several colours, from Mimikri

13-07-16 kimono ichi

There are so many lovely kimono and yukata around at the moment, my inventory is getting a backlog of new ones to wear. Here I’m in the from that excellent kimono designer Silvery K , which I got at the Japonica event (which lasts til the 25th). Each kimono comes with several different patterns for the obi, and 4 colour choices for the cords. In the first picture I’m admiring displays at another event that just opened: Kimono-ichi (kimono festival) at Milky House http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Milky%20House/91/45/23
The Meadow hair from Magika isn’t new, but I think it goes well with kimono and with this back view you can see the pretty coils of plaits.

05-07-16 in the woods

Midsummer has just passed and I’m wandering in the woods celebrating Tanabata. The new chapter Four has opened, and I picked up some sweet chiffon maxi skirts from !gO! which went nicely with the new halter top from petite Mort which has a very deep lace hem. I threw over an old (but still available) kimono from Tres Blah, and set out with my moon lantern over my shoulder (you can see it better in the 2nd picture, below the cut)
