“But the beauty is in the walking — we are betrayed by destinations.” ~ Gwyn Thomas
I never used to enjoy walking. I always felt I needed to be going somewhere to make it worth my while but now I realize it’s the journey that makes walking so much better than driving or even biking. I can see into shop windows, notice the flowers (if they ever return), smile at people, enjoy the fresh air.
I put together an outfit of different pieces to make my walking fashionable. First is the two piece jacket and shirt from Cecilina, which she is selling at The Chapter Four. Part of the 2-for-1 group, you get the under piece and this jacket. Presumably you can wear the jacket without the under shirt but I like them together. I wear them over leggings from Moonbubble Gothly, who includes a HUD of darling textures for changing things out (as seen above). One pair of pants can be worn SO many times. My messenger bag is from Superjaix in the gachas at The Chapter Four. Made for male avatars, I still managed to make it look good with my girl. And I built my whole look around Cyclic Gear’s darling loafers with contrasting bows. They come in several combinations and she has made them to fit the Slink flat foot or Toddleroos.
My skin is one of the fresh and lovely skins Umazuma Metaluna is offering at The Chapter Four in a gacha. I have looked at all of them and they are all worth the extra cha-ching, especially this rare with its delicate freckles and cat-eye liner. MissAllSunday Lemon has this new hair out at FaMESHed, and it’s definitely worth a look-see because of its versatile styling and as usual, her great textures.
*** I need to make one big important plug! You NEED to walk to the Basilique Playhouse to see Paradise Lost. As you know, I have blogged it but really, truly, it’s a must-see in SL if you see anything. Tickets have gone on sale. (Don’t worry—I made sure to get mine already so you can’t snatch my opening day seats.) I am so stinkin’ excited to see this and I am a jaded SLer. Get your tickets on Marketplace for 1000L or 1500L at the door. Half of all ticket sales will be donated to the WWF Adopt-A-Gorilla Program for Ihoho, the mountain gorilla (who is should be made into a gacha toy, he’s so cute).
