Blizzard Warning!

We have been issued a blizzard warning today. It’s a little alarming because normally we don’t get those. We get snow—sometimes lots of it—but it doesn’t blow around like we are on some arctic substation (which is what I presume “blizzard” means). Of course, I am complete wimp and let someone else do all the shoveling and shopping while I whimper under an electric throw in front of the fire. (Yes, really, I have an electric throw.)

However, IF I were going out (and that’s a BIG if), I would be bundled up. This fur coat from Govindra Galatea does the trick with its piles and piles of lynx furs and cushy comfy hat. (And the skirt layer is kind of puffy, which will hide the 3 layers of long underwear I have on underneath.) My boots are cozy and comfy from Shibuki Aeon with great leather laces up the back.

My glorious skin is the group gift from Tricky Boucher. I do realize this is a bit tan but I intend on maintaining this beautiful skin tone by teleporting to a beach sim as soon as is practical. I am looking forward to seeing Tricky’s new line. It’s been too long since he did a release.

Blizzard Warning!

They do say that SL is a place for fantasy. Well, seeing me shoveling is its own form of fantasy. Gaze on cuz it’s not happening… ;)

Blizzard Warning!

Now that the worst is over, they predict
Something messy and difficult, though not
Life-threatening….

The shift of the wind matters again,
And we are so simple, so happy to hear
The scrape of a shovel next door.

A Chill in the Air

A cold wind blew in yesterday. As someone said on TV, “Summer ended five minutes ago.” For me that means the opportunity to get out clothes I haven’t seen in a while—kind of like having a whole new wardrobe. I pulled out designs from some of the best on the grid to keep me chic and warm.

A Chill in the Air

A rummage through the coat closet found this amazing leather and fur coat from mirai Jun. With the mix of sculpties and system pieces, it’s an ingenious design. I just FEEL warm when I see it.

I paired it with a sweater from LeeZu Baxter. Her dramatic dress designs are often featured in fashion shots, but not a lot is said about her more casual separate pieces. This sweater, a piece I purchased a while ago, would be a favorite in my RL wardrobe-the design is beautiful and complimentary, the materials are luxurious and warm.

The pants are from Zaara—velour with a clever angled zippered pocket, clearly styled on jeans Zaara has seen around town. Boots are a new offering from Rebel Hope—suede scrunch boots made from sculpties. Rebel seems to be holding on in SL, thankfully, despite some incredible problems on the grid. Thankfully, LL was there to provide some help ;) Hair is a cap and ponytail set Elika Tiramisu offers with the natty cap being scripted for color change.
