June 2010

Just a quick post for a casual look I put together out of some favourites: mostly old favourites.

Indian summer tunic {pink}: Mashooka

I have been trying to find the right outfit to go with this romantic hair from Waka and Yuki, and realised today that the dress I wanted had in fact been lurking in my inventory for a couple of weeks: a freebie from Towa. The dress is meant to be something like knee length, but I wanted extra swoosh, so I copied the skirt and attached it twice, to make a full length gown. I also twisted round the collar, to put the bow at the back rather than the front. The ribbon floats on the breeze very prettily. The Lady Rose shoes are often pulled out: they are a classic shape and the the roses add extra interest.

In Butterdish
After seeing Carson’s post, I couldn’t resist zooming off to Butterdish. It’s a nice place to explore, and also has some cheap goodies, ranging from buildings to cookies. They include the “wishful cake”, which I think was about 10 Linden. You get a cake to rez (which gives slices and forks when you touch it: it’s 70 prims, though) and a wearable cake that has an animation to hold it above your head and sway from side to side. Above you can see me in the cake shop in Butterdish, and then at home wearing my cake.

I’m wearing the gorgeous new shoes from Zaara and a babydoll and trousers set from Designing Nicky Ree. I love her textures, which are so glossy and vibrant. I wish she had made the trousers mod, though, or that they had prim flares rather than using system flares at the bottom.

Winter, Far Away

I was leading some conference sessions, so I put on something a bit more sombre, and ended up more wintery than I’d intended, so I thought I’d take pictures in a real winter setting. This is one of AM Radio’s amazing installations, the Far Away (or possibly the Further Away). These mostly aren’t new things I’m wearing (except for the umbrella from Ruru’s gatcha), but they are some favourites.
