I was rummaging around the boards and spotted that Kirablog SL had a look called ‘Ella’. Well, I couldn’t not, could I?

Even better that this boho look is very much the sort of holiday wear I will pack. The crop tops, the long skirt….they’re all me.

I don’t spend huge amounts in SL but I made an exception for a L$120 skirt and L$90 top to give a lovely bohemian look that would fit right in if I were on holiday.

The outfit is available from ‘Luas’ at the @indie teepee sim.

I also took the opportunity to visit the main Luas store. While there I spotted this low, low cut dress for a mere L$60, and decided that, too, could go into my virtual suitcase for the next holiday.

It’s probably not clear from the photo but it’s so low cut that, well, you’ll need to sort out your bikini line first, girls 😉 Perhaps not quite the thing for, say, Frank’s Jazz Place? Or perhaps it’s exactly right for there! Who knows?

I’m back into the groove of blogging now, and I’m pleased to say that we’ll be getting back to what we do best, SL naturism, after a brief foray into ‘the naturist wardrobe’. A few posts were rolled up into one yesterday, to get the clothing out of the way, and now it’s back to our chosen lifestyle whether in or out of SL.



Kimonos and bow ties

Reading the blogs yesterday (I can’t remember which one!) I saw mention of the Sou by Creation jp event. It’s one of those increasingly popular ideas whereby a bunch of designers do ‘pop up’ stores for a while and share space & costs for a limited period.

I tp’ed over there and looked around and saw a L$0 bowtie on the Happy Dispatch stall, bearing the word ‘Lewd’. Not, strictly speaking, something that’s in my lexicon, but grabbed it anyway. Who knows when it might come in handy for a Hallowe’en fancy dress party?

Initially I had difficulty in buying it…’wrong active group’. I thought it might mean joining Happy Dispatch, so I teleported over there and fun, nope, no luck in joining the group to buy the bowtie. Eventually I twigged that you join the Sou by Creation jp group, on the wall of their event, to pick this up, so if you’re planning a Hallowe’en outfit already, or if you’re a guy looking for something slightly different for your tux…now you know.

All was not lost at the Happy Dispatch sim, though. I chanced upon a free ‘kimono’ pose, which is actually a series of couple poses. I liked how they looked natural and not-forced, so Mr. Keng was forced to come online to pose beside me.

We look relaxed in the photos, which is something that isn’t always true of SL poses. Some can look a bit awkward but I like the stands, the hand placements and so on which made for a nice photo session. You’ll find this free pose set at Happy Dispatch’s own sim (slurl above)
