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.

Magika has a half price sale. I ended up buying four hairstyles (I loved it that the demos were in my colours for a change) and this one is very cute, with a colour-change beanie and an attractive fringe of hair.

The 52 weeks of colour challenge this week focuses on Firebrick. I ended up with quite a few things out of my inventory, but new was this really cute owl bag (the lanterns are also on sale in the shop Adjunct (where I took the first picture), using the same owl shape). The back satchel made me think “back to school” so I found this Japanese school role play sim (and spaceport….). I stood up on the school roof looking soulful, like they do in anime when they have problems.

Jade, elephant
This elephant pose prop from Magnifique (99 Linden and it has 5 poses, and the elephant is just 9 or 10 prims) came just as I was lacking inspiration for how to show off the jade outfit I’d put together. I had something frothier in mind for jade, but when I rediscovered this silk top, I remembered how much I liked it. I also had to wear something more from the soon-to-go Eolande’s, these colour change jade bangles have been one of my staples.

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

I’m a bit late with my 52 weeks of color challenge post this week, but I actually decided pretty quickly that I wanted to wear this silky red dress. I think it was created to go with vampy high heels, but I thought I would work it into a more “boho early evening dinner” kind of look.
