Urbanista

If I had the abdominal muscles (and buoyant cleavage) of my avatar, I’d have this outfit made by a tailor in an instant. The shimmery bronze colour scheme is perfect for casual wear and flatters every complexion.

The only annoyance is that the finishing touch of a triple strand of gold pearls causes the jacket’s collar and belt to disappear, even in the latest SL viewers. Can’t have everything, I guess. Today I’ve chosen the collar and belt over bling.

The inconvenient swimsuit

I fell for this floral bikini quickly and ardently, but it’s about as practical as a convertible sports car in Antarctica. The note in the box warned: each flower is hand sculpted and adds up to a mind-boggling 500-prim outfit. I’d never want to bring down a sim in an itty-bitty bikini so this gorgeous piece collects dust in my inventory.

Grecian goddess

Why walk around in robes and olive wreaths when one can glide about the Grecian sim in an elegant gown and glam hair?

I didn’t realise I was in a capture roleplay area and galloped off in my heeled sandals at a pace that would have made the ancient sprinters proud.

Mod squad

I bought the Mimikri ostrich feather and croc-print pants after seeing a knock-out purple version doing the blog rounds. However, I was in the mood for something more neutral.

After wearing the set in an ostrich colour I thought the outfit lacked punch. More through luck than good styling, some skycraper-high hair and tinted glasses saved the day. I wish I didn’t have to work in real life so I had time to tease and style my fine blonde locks into such a distinctive ‘do.

A bit of ballerina

In real life, my working wardrobe comprises mainly pant suits and shirts, and increasingly flat shoes as my ageing feet resist my mind’s desire to trot about in heels. I tend towards tailoring over flounce, but this vintage (in SL years) Camie Cooper ballerina dress remains an enduring favourite.

I haven’t worn this dress for a long time, but a pair of discounted cherry-red heels creates a lovely partnership.

The photos were taken along the paths and waterways of Amsterdam.
