Pretty in pinks
This was one of those outfits where you start from one item (in my case white Western boots by G Field), end up buying stuff you never actually use, and finally don’t even use the item that was going to be the main point of the outfit. In this case I just changed the white boots to pink ones (wish I’d got the fatpack now!), but along the way I bought two dresses that weren’t quite right, this lovely Surf Couture top, the Caroline’s necklace in a different metal and the Gypsy Moon dress that I finally decided on for my skirt. I couldn’t get the skirt to hang right on me (it’s no mod) AND the pants to match with the skirt, but the colours and feel where what I was looking for.
I’m pictured above in Urbanized, which was offering a pink home-office for “Spruce up your space” $150Linden weekend (I bought it: actually I bought 3 home offices at the weekend, this one, Second Spaces “Chloe” shed and [what next]’s bloggers office, I now have LOTS of office props for pictures)-;

Spring bouquet
This look has ended up as a boho spring bride: perhaps it second time around, or perhaps she simply doesn’t like white. At any rate she’s making a statement: she’s certainly not going to let anyone walk all over her, not with those boots on.

Summer colours
These vibrant colours make me feel it COULD be summer one day (still cool where I am!). I love the textures of the Zaara kurta, but I don’t find the prim part really works unless you are standing still. Fortunately, the jacket layer still makes a lovely top even without the prim, and the sleeve prims are very nice. Rather than going with a neutral lower layer, I opted for this summery skirt that the Closet brought out (last year, I think).

Posing in the alien spacecraft
This post shows my favourite new purchase which is the amazing alien spacecraft-home, Veralarti, designed by Alex Bader. I am standing at one of the entrance ports, in an outfit I will be showing as part of an educators fashion show-and-tell tomorrow. I wanted to choose a dress that was particularly SL, and the Giselle from Likka House is special in the ways that the panels don’t obey “gravity” but may stay frozen in floaty positions around you. It is also a very pretty colour. I added to the ballet look with SySy’s wool wrap. The Breeze hair is also not quite naturalistic, as it stays in this “blown in the wind” position (which is why its been used loads of times already by fashion bloggers!).

I love my hair
I just love this new W&Y hair. It is full and bouncy, but cleverly manages to avoid most of that annoying hair-inside-your-shoulders because it is swept back by the sunglasses. The glasses are fully colour change, by the way. I think you could wear this hair either with a casual or a more glamourous look.

I picked up the necklace as a 60 Linden weekend item, and it will now be back to full price. It is very pretty, though. You can change the gems (a good range of colours) and you are offered the item as either copy or transfer: nice to have that option for gifting.
