Future

1-future-sm

While 2017 is still in the future for a lot of you, it arrived here nine hours ago for me with little fanfare. I chose to stay home and away from the crowds (and drunks) this time. I heard the fireworks at both 9pm (the family fireworks tradition) and again at midnight. But I was dreaming not long afterwards of a better year to come.

Here is wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2017. The future is our best hope as we try to create the best present ever.

Winter Warmers

1-callie-boots-sm

Out for a walk, I am all bundled up in layers. You have seen the coat I am wearing before, in a different colour. I just love this sweet, swingy coat from neve, which is available at The Liaison Collaborative until December 30. So you’d better hurry to get yours!

On my legs I am wearing the beautiful Callie boots from fri.day for the December round of Uber. Check out the detail! The rawhide string that wraps around the heel and the tiny little bow at the back are just the kind of things that set these boots apart. They also come with optional socks (with a colour-change HUD) that give these boots even more versatility. Oh, and as a bonus, the boots alone fit perfectly over the standard length Cake Leggings from Blueberry and with the socks, they work with the over boot version! Since virtually every female on the grid owns these leggings, Callie is a must-have for mixing and matching to set you apart.

Bundle up, stay warm and enjoy the cold weather for me. We’re heading into a heatwave in the next few days and I would love to be pulling on my winter warmers instead.

The Plain of Jars

1-the-plain-of-jars-sm

Having survived Christmas, it’s time to spoil yourself! *Just BECAUSE* has released the Dana Bodysuit and Daniella Skirt just in time for the post-Christmas parties. You can pair the two or wear them separately. The bodysuit comes with the option of wearing the matching bra or going daring with the sheer bodice alone. The skirt also comes with a sheer and opaque version. Mix and match to your heart’s content!

My shoes from PHEDORA are also of the mix and match variety with a HUD that allows you to customise every part. Those straps are to die for! As part of the December BishBox it automatically comes as a fatpack, so you don’t have to agonise over which colour to choose – you get them all! It’s not too late to pick up your BishBox if you missed subscribing early. Just click on the link above and head to BishBox headquarters to grab this fabulous box of wonders.

I chose the location, The Plain of Jars from the Second Life Destination Guide. It is ” a vast plain of hundreds upon hundred of massive stone urns and ewers, the makers long since lost to antiquity along with their purpose. Some recall the legend of the giant king’s victory banquet. believe the jars to be the leftover alcohol vessels from that banquet. Others think of a more mundane purpose, to collect rain water for passing caravans. Discover for yourself…”

I loved the stark yet quietly complex scenery. It is a place to visit when you want to contemplate the vastness and mystery of the world. And to allow your outfit to take centre billing 😉
