March 2011


Blue and White
When I saw this new lovely fluffy skirt I dashed across and bought at once, as I knew it would go with my new embellished Zaara top. For the rest I managed to keep to old favourites, except for retinting my tights (thank you G Field for providing the permissions!)
I am always on the look out for still-available skins that I don’t feel yuck in – most of them are too highly coloured for me and/or have horrible pouty mouths. I feel fairly comfortable in this new skin from AMD. It is “gothly” shade: I would like it to be a bit more evenly pale myself, but I thought it was fairly pretty, with some nice detail.

Princess bride
When I first saw that white was the next in Luna Jubilee’s 52 weeks of colour I thought I might try and avoid the obvious bridal theme – but then I remembered I had this beautiful fluffy Evie’s Closet dress in my inventory, and I really had to go for the wedding look. With a dress as elaborate as this you don’t need much else: I used a flower wreath (also by Evie’s closet), a pretty bouquet, and some intricate jewels from Yummy. The Lost Princess picture and chair in the background are by Mudshake and the harpsichord by Grey Kurka.

Help Japan
I found many items at the Help Japan event very tempting, and as it was all going to aid Japan’s relief effort, I gave into temptation. This is the link http://slurl.com/secondlife/Chirihama/198/98/22

Conference gear
I thought I would blog my outfit for the Virtual worlds Best Practices in Education conference. I decided on smart casual, and it is a mixture of old favourites (the jacket and jeans) and new things (the shoes and necklace). These new shoes fall firmly into the “I want these in RL” category. I am pictured in the steampunk cafe at the conference (Steampunk is the theme of the 20-sim build). If you like steampunk it is worth a wander round: the cafe is here http://slurl.com/secondlife/VWBPE%20North%203/216/129/35/.

Sky Blue
Here I am in sky blue (this week’s 52 weeks of colour challenge), in the vast steampunk central auditorium of the Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education conference. I’m just moderating a couple of sessions, but I wish I’d put in a paper as it would be awesome to be giving a talk in this place!

Umber
I tried on several pairs of jeans before I settled on this pair that seemed to be close to umber … then I remembered this shirt (which unfortunately doesn’t seem to be available any more, sorry) which I just had to wear as it picked up the blue in the cuffs and the pretty floral motif, plus I think the background is close to umber as well…
The new Milana hair brand does some very nice blue colours, this was the style I liked the most. The second picture (below) doesn’t show the outfit very well, but I thought the new LISP teacup chandelier looked so sweet in my greenhouse that I couldn’t resist posting it.
