Hello there, Fabulouses! Are you ready for winter like I am? As the days of November ticked by, I found myself itching to frolic in a winter wonderland. Although in real life, I never mastered an axel, a spiral, or I’ll be honest, even just a simple crossover, in SL, I glide along with all the moves of a figure skating champion. Today’s outfit, with its flared skirt and icy, gray tones inspired Ripley and I to travel to this frozen pond on the Twilight Moon sim, but I’m getting a bit ahead of myself.
Mania at Midnight
Time and time again, I keep returning to the Entice store to check out their latest releases. Currently, the no-group-required free Midnight Mania board is offering the “Be With You” dress. This frock features short sleeves with a slightly scalloped edge, and a wide leather belt, in addition to the mid-thigh length skirt. It comes complete with a color-change HUD, which allows you to modify the textures of the top, skirt, and belt individually. This offers a myriad of possible combinations! I opted for a black top, white belt, and a dark, printed skirt to contrast vividly against the white snow and ice. For finishing touches, I added a glistening Snow Flurry Pearl necklace from EarthStones, and laced on a pair of ice skates from V-Style that I picked up for only 30L on the Marketplace.
What’s Included With the Dress:
- Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L for classic avatars
- Alpha Layer
- Texture change HUD – grays
Jack Frost Nipping at Your Nose (and Ears!)
Of course, with the chill in the air, I needed something to keep my ears toasty. While I rummaged around in my inventory, searching for the perfect winter hat, Ripley nudged my elbow insistently, and pointed his nose at the box from Mina perched on my shelf. Love previously blogged the free Nell hair in her post [HERE], and I had immediately traveled to Hairology to scoop up Love’s featured hairstyle. However, like Astrid in her post [HERE], I hadn’t yet finished opening my gifts from the event, and had completely forgotten this lovely style. It’s a good thing my pupster remembered, because the long, flowing hair and white, knitted cap were perfect for a day of gliding across the ice!
Cold Hands and a Warm Heart
With my outfit complete, Ripley and I thoroughly enjoyed a lovely, wintry afternoon, filled with drifting snowflakes, frosty air, and the sound of blades cutting across fresh ice. Now, if only I had trained Rip to fetch a steaming mug of cocoa, my day would be complete, and I would be able to feel my hands again…. Note to self: When you go skating, bring mittens!
Until my next post, wonderful readers, happy shopping!
