Winter Warmth

Wouldn’t it be lovely to be able to wear all the lovely winter wools and layers and run around in the snow and ice and have your feet stay warm, dry and toasty? Wait,  it’s Second Life and I can. Whee! As someone who grew up in the Minnesota Northwoods – who remembers the joy of touching a frozen metal stair rail with my tongue at age five and recalls my hand sticking to the door handle of my dad’s car, I so love living in a warmer place that seldom sees a flake of snow. But I would have occasional bouts of nostalgia for the sparking beauty of winter snow, of hoarfrost on the trees and all the loveliness that winter brings. Second Life gives me a taste of that without the chapped lips and runny nose.  And so I can dress for these winter wonderlands in lovely wools such as this Zona Cero coat and this Boom sweater.

This Fair Isle sweater from BOOM in lavender was dropped on me for review. I liked it so much I immediately tp’ed to their store and then spent way too many Lindens on some lovely dresses and other clothes. I also tp’ed Gidge in to come look — especially at the wonderful freebie/cheapie wall chockablock with bargain beauties. It comes with layer options, two neck prims and is beautifully done.

The pants are also from Zona Cero. Zona Cero is a bit more urban grunge than my usual shopping destination, but there are some pieces there that are not the least bit urban grunge and are completely fab separates like these pants and this marvelous coat.

The hat is from Apollon – and comes in several shades, none of them purple, but it’s mod so I applied a little tinting and voila.
