April 2012

Butterflies and flowers

A nice spring feeling with a new floral cami from SMS and new jeans from Sn@tch. The butterfly crown is also new, at the Fantasy Fair: there are 2 animated butterflies, that gently flap their wings. The necklace from Yummy isn’t new, but very pretty, with little gold butterflies on a chain.

Sakura kimono
I seem to be buying every kimono that MiuMin puts out at The Gallery Gift Shop. The latest one is a sakura (cherry blossom) kimono that can be worn in three ways. As with the black kimono earlier, I went for the fluffiest style, that include foams of lace and an elaborate obi with a large blossom at the front and further blossoms on the back of the obi. You also get a cherry blossom bag to hold, and cherry blossoms for your hair. There are shoes too, but instead I opted for G Field’s Flower pumps Eva. The hair is Truth’s Evelyn, and my skin is (for once) a new one: Glam Affair’s Leah, in a special pale colour for the Gallery Gift Shop.

French beret and ballerinas
The April collabor8 has a French theme and the hair, pants and bracelets are from there. I would have liked to use the striped jersey from Nylon Outfitters, but unfortunately the shirt layer has a bit of the accompanying skirt colour attached to it, and I couldn’t get it to look right. Therefore I dug out this nice striped jersey (which I’m afraid might have been a hunt gift, I can’t see it in their shop).

Black kimono
With a beautiful kimono like this, you don’t need any extra items! The lace detail is amazing. Lovely for cherry blossom viewing.
