Summer Breeze

The sun was shining through my window at work today, the office was warm and my mind lazily drifted, imagining the barmy summer evenings yet to come.  Then it bloody rained.  Typical huh?  However, we have SL don’t we?  So sod it, summer has come early.  I’m thinking evening BBQ, a cold glass of Chardonnay or maybe some Margheritas with plenty of salt on the rim of the glass – roll on summer!

I’ve had this !_Ce-Cubic effect skirt for some months now and never had the chance to wear it, it’s been hanging pathetically in my virtual wardrobe just waiting for the right top to compliment it.  I was trying some tops out and found this one in my freebie folder, it’s part of an old freebie set from <3 Cupcakes.  I’m not even sure if those freebie sets are still available :(  It was instant love when I put it on, the print is adorable.

Yet again, I opted for Boho style jewellery, I wanted the top to do the talking rather than the accessories.  I’m still waiting to get those damn new shoes from Armidi but my trusty Armidi wedge heels came to the rescue.

 So a short post from me tonight – it’s Friday and I see a glass of wine (or 3) with my name on it and perhaps a live gig in SL with my trusty mate^^

Gorgeous in green

 I met a stylin’ gal yesterday wearing this fab little sweater-dress by Blooberry (unfortunately, I forgot her name which is a pity as she was so nice too, hopefully if she reads this she will drop me an IM in-world and I can credit her properly lol).  I really don’t know how I missed this little gem of a dress when I was last in Blooberry?  I guess sometimes we are looking for something in particular and pass over what would normally make our palms sweaty and have us reaching for our virtual wallets.

The dress comes in several other colours too but it was the green that caught my eye, it’s so earthy and great for spring.  You know, I adore how sweater-dresses are so versatile, team them with jeans, leggings, tights or go bare legged, whatever takes your fancy but with just one dress you get so many great looks, hell, if you had all the colours the possiblities are endless!

I decided to don my Boho jewellery again for this outfit, it adds warmth and let’s face it, it may be spring but in the UK it’s still bloody cold.  To break the outfit up a little I added the brown Militaire belt by Fancy Schmancy.  I think a little shrug jacket would also look fab with this outfit, sadly I don’t have one so off I go to shop again lol

The Bold & the Beautiful….

I’ve been lurking in LeeZu Baxters for a day or two now, my eye kept being drawn to the Revolution Mo outfit.  It’s striking that’s for sure and bold to boot.  I wasn’t sure if I wanted it as at first, to me, it was a confusing piece.  Then yesterday eureeka -I got it (I bought it too ;p), I understood Leezu’s outfit and the more I played, the more I loved it.

 This daring use of colour and the abstract quilting patterns of the coat make it so unique, abstract art, bold patterns and colour is gonna be big this year.  I chose to team the coat with a pair of red ankle boots, black skinny jeans and a red shirt.  What is great about the coat is you can pick any of the many colours and use that as your accent colour, it’s so diverse.

This outfit is one of the other combinations, and at first it kinda just hits you with a WTH, but the more you look, the more it grows on you, well for me it did lol.  It’s edgy and fun and the transparent skirt is awesome.  I had to keep accessories down to a minimum here as the dress really doesn’t need a lot.  I wore red earrings and bronze wedge heels to co-ordinate.
