So pleased I found this lovely combination outfit from Apple Heart.  It costs less than $200L from the 2nd Level event but for that you get this cute pleated cotton skirt and stylish tied denim top, plus a pair of shoes (not pictured), all of which you can mix and match via a colour hud.  I also love these new pigtails from Tableau Vivant that go with their new Bento hairbases.  They’re available from Kustom9.  Finally, take a look at the gorgeous new Tokyo eyes from Izzie’s – they’re available in various formats, including an applier for standard Catwa eyes, which is what you see here.

Away from it all

Head: Catya v1.05 by Catwa NEW Version
Head Applier & Skin: Alexa (Asia #1) by Glam Affair NEW Gacha Kustom9

Location: Saint Pete City

Why do I have the overwhelming urge to go somewhere far away from it all and sink into quiet oblivion?  Something to do with what’s happening later this week?  Maybe.  Anyway, in Second Life I’ve checked into the Saint Pete City hotel for a bit of rest and relaxation, wearing the beautiful new Catwa hairbase and hair that’s available now from Kustom9.  The tiara* is meant for the new Truth hairs at Epiphany – I’ll show you one of those tomorrow.

* the tiara is actually a crown but worn like this it looks just like a tiara!!

Today I’m standing waist deep in a freezing pond at Frisland – the things I do for Second Life fashion!  I thought I’d show you the big, big Mermelada hair from eXxEsS.  It’s probably the biggest hair I’ve ever worn and looks great with the vibrant new Daphne skin for the Simone Bento head from Izzie’s.

I’ll never be cold in the arctic wastes of Frisland when I can be warmed by the thought of wearing outfits as chic as this one.  I’ve added the delicious Vinyl jacket and bra I showed you a few days ago with a new high-waisted skirt offering from Avale that’s simply one of the nicest things they’ve ever done.  Add to that another of the new hair extensions from Tableau Vivant and a sumptuous new mainstore Lelutka head applier from Izzie’s and you have enough to warm the cockles of anyone’s heart!

Have you still got your old Christmas tree hanging around shedding needles everywhere?  Do what I’m doing, strap it to the top of your car and take it to the tip for recycling.  However, don’t use an old banger of a car like mine which has broken down in Fris’land and probably needs recycling itself!  Today’s post post features a cute exercise outfit from Vinyl available at Collabor88, the second of the new VIP hairs from Truth and the first update for the new Bento head from Lelutka – I love this head!!

We have a family funeral tomorrow, so I won’t be posting for a couple of days.  I thought this picture best summed up the mood of silence and remembrance that affects everyone at such times, and also the fact that we are an intensely musical family.  I hope you’ll all remember us in your prayers tomorrow.

Another winning item from Uber, this straggly but sexy hair from DeLa.  I’m also showing the bra that forms part of the Ephixa outfit from Vinyl that I showed a couple of posts ago, but which I left out because it was more… interesting without the bra!  I may show the complete outfit in my next post.

It’s getting near the end of the year so I thought I might do a few posts over the next couple of weeks highlighting some of the favourite items I’ve blogged over the last 12 months, starting with this rhapsody in pink here!  The candy-themed jewellery from The Forge appeared almost exactly a year ago so technically it’s from 2015, but who’s counting!  Definitely from 2016 is the skirt from the gorgeous Sia dress from Vinyl – I’ve not shown it on its own but it’s definitely great for mixing and matching, as you can see here where I’ve matched it with probably my most blogged item of the year, the stupendous Moca bikini from Imeka.  I didn’t show this lovely hair from Truth anywhere near enough when it came out, but it’s a mainstore hair so still very much available.  Finally two almost new items I love – the new Bento-enabled Catya head from Catwa, and the Cora skin for Catwa from Izzie’s.  I think 2016 will be looked back on as the year of Bento!
