January 2017


This is a dull grey rainy time of year in the UK, and so although I am still snuggling in warm wool in SL, I’m starting to seek out sims with sun, sea, and summer birds.

I did a happy dance when I saw that this dress, and in particular THESE BOOTS were made for classic avatars as well as mesh bodies. The suede boots are super-gorgeous, with great detail (especially at the back, where there’s a tie fastening) and they fit perfectly. The sweater-dress has a high polo neck and the Zaara pashmina also fits over it well (there are 3 versions in the pashmina pack: rigged, rigged for over clothes – the one I’m wearing – and unrigged).

It may not actually be spring yet in my physical world, but I can enjoy the chime of fur-in amongst spring blossom in Second Life. There were two major events which featured kimono (Kimono-ichi and Japonica), both of which I am too late to blog, but Sakka’s Studio has a big main store and this elegant formal kimono is probably there by now. It includes tabi and zori (Japanese shoes and socks). I added a quirky pair of glasses from Naminoke.
