Oh, I do love skating. We had this special snow shovel that worked sort of like a push broom that we would use to clear the ice in front of the house for skating. Dad messed about with a floor polisher to make it an ice smoother for those winters when the lake froze on a windy day (bumpy ice makes for bad skating). We would string Christmas lights round a big cleared square of ice and run a loudspeaker down from the house. Then Dad would build a big bonfire on the ice and we would roast hot dogs and marshmallows and skate and ice dance for the 3-4 hours it would take for the bonfire to melt through the ice and fall into the lake. I spent hundreds of hours on the ice and in all that time never once did I wear a pair of ice skates as improbably sexy hot as these new skates from Bax Coen. Of course, no jacket of mine was a fancy and outright impractical as this jacket from Bare Rose either – it was too cold for such silliness. Thanks be that Second Life winters are more forgiving.
I am wearing the jacket from Bare Rose’s White Mist outfit – a delicate romantic confection more suited to Versailles, perhaps, than a skating rink. It’s one of the rare Bare Rose outfits that is not in a multicolor fat pack. Instead it is a folder full of romantic fantasy wear delight with optional open and closed skirts and all sorts of frippery, ruffles and bows.
Here you can see more of the gorgeous detail work and also the lovely silk blouse from Casa del Shai underneath.
In this shot, you can see the Digit Darkes Developer Pants and the highly improbably but oh-so-lovely Bax Coen skates. They were only 149L this weekend…and look at those stilettos. This is definitely improbably in real life footwear.
Here you can get a good look at the wonderful Belleza skin – this is the amethyst kisses makeup.
