The Perils of Ponchos

I don’t know about you, but for me, ponchos have always been problematic. I bought my first poncho in Spain – knit with thick, luxurious wool and closing at the neckline with gorgeous unvarnished wood buttons. It was so warm and cozy and it felt like wearing a blanket, which meant it really needed to be worn on cold days. So here’s the thing. In Minnesota, if it’s cold enough to wear that poncho, it’s too cold to wear that poncho. The wind would blow up underneath and chill me to the bone. An engineering flaw for cold weather. So every time I see ponchos, I think of my few attempts wearing my gorgeous poncho and remember those bone-chilling gusts of wind sneaking in underneath and think – nope, not for me.

What I needed was one more like this poncho from Zenith – to wear indoors kind of like a high fashion snuggle. But it’s Second Life and so even though there’s snow falling and the pond is frozen over, the winds that ruffle my hair are soft zephyrs carrying billowing warmth – not bone-chilling blasts from Polar Vortex.

My wool poncho from Spain was just too warm for indoor use, so mainly it took up space in my closet. Still, I did love that poncho for all it was unsuited to really cold climates. There is something playful and free about a poncho. The Zenith ponchos are found at The Arcade that is still open and probably a heck of a lot easier to shop than it was earlier in the month. The poncho comes with a HUD allowing you to change the shirt underneath to several plaids or solids. There are also several handbags like this one in the gacha as well as a few necklaces. The pants I am wearing are from Gizza and have a high waist and are good foundation items for your wardrobe.

PXL Creations released this skin at We<3RolePlay – it’s a new makeup for Mia. The hair is from Truth and has a hud to change the hat. I love this hat and the windblown effect.
