#42 Fascinating work

I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.

Jerome K. Jerome

What use is a business suit in Second Life? I pondered this as I tried on this KITJA suit that I had walked past a few times at Kustom 9.

“Mem, you look just like a teacher!” I laughed, peered at myself through my teacher specs, …and, I bought the suit. So did my friends. I must ask them why they need a suit in SL.

The cleanly designed suit fits beautifully, has very nice detailing and there are several color options for skirt and jacket and a HUD for the shirt (black, white or grey).

The immensely satisfying details that make the outfit feel great:

Pure of Heart Dolphin Pendant (worn as a brooch) from Chop Zuey, Belle Rouselle donates 100% of the funds raised from the Pure at Heart Set to the World Wildlife Fund. (See the Lua Secret blog where she explains it beautifully.)

Steampunk heels are from Eudora3D they come with a HUD giving options for the main shoe, trim, sole, & metal.

#40 butterfly

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

#39 It’s Cold Outside

“There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.”

Alfred Wainwright

My ‘go to’ outfit for the ice and snow around Second Life is a combination of a big coldLogic knitted jumper worn over Warm Clarity’s thermals – with my feet tucked in to Ava Kunglers Blanka boots.

These next two poses are from one of Image Essential’s Winter Trend packs; they come complete with the puff of warm vapor breath and the falling snow!

#38 Hearts & flowers

Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.

Helen Keller

This sweet and sassy skirt with the red ribbon bow by Solde Rothmanay for POE# 079 was the base for this outfit. I have chosen to keep it casual and comfortable for the many Christmas parties I will be attending over the next few weeks …also to show of this soft and pretty skin by sawsan SecretSpy for POE7 #050.  I slipped on a red satin wrap top by Toast Bard, black lacy heels by RKitty Lisa, and added Zuri Rayna’s sparkling Diamond Peace Pendant POE7 #005.

Go! …jump into the POE7 Hunt – and let us see what you find there.

The Peace On Earth Hunt is a very special gift from the creators and designers of Second Life to shower us with blessings – take for instance, this tiny and perfect dove…

#36 Just the little things

Little things seem nothing, but they give peace, like those flowers which individually seem odorless but all together perfume the air.
