Without really meaning to, I created two contrasting outfits and images, both featuring umbrellas! I love umbrella AOs. I have two, from TorridWear and ANA_Mations. They’re both adorable and give me plenty of reason to wander around the Grid, hoping it will rain.

The first outfit is classic Candy. It all started with the free frog hat from Slanted Fox (SLURL). The Fishy Strawberry (SLURL) shrug might match, but it’s a clash fest from there on, with a bright pink playsuit from MG Fashions (SLURL), neon green fanny pack from Yummy (SLURL), and happy yellow rubber ducky wellies from Jeepers Creepers. The TorridWear (SLURL) color-change umbrella, with AO, completes the look. Taking a picture in a black-and-white room I found while exploring was just an extra bonus!

After a couple of days wandering the Grid in the previous outfit, I apparently needed a fashion palette cleanser. I went for completely monotone, in shades of gray from UnToneQuilt (SLURL). The gray skin is from Launa Fauna of Chai (SLURL) and was available on a previous incarnation of the Silent sim (home to the Kyoot main store; SLURL), but I don’t believe it is available any more. Katat0nik’s (SLURL) scripted hair came in handy when looking for a gray shade to complete the outfit – I love having so many options! I chose the ANA_Mations (SLURL) umbrella and AO for this shot, the free monochrome parasol was a perfect match.

As I was exploring the Katat0nik sim, I came across a perfect tiny globe from 109 Prims (SLURL). I love the creativity and attention to detail that shows in everything from 109 Prims and the globe made a perfect photography background!

SRD - Lucretia

Silver Rose Designs (SLURL) has long been one of my favorite stores, even though I have never blogged any of Yuriko Muromachi’s designs before. With so many great stores in SL, it’s often difficult to feature your favorites, but I just knew I had to blog the new Lucretia dresses from SRD. While these lovely, “grown-up lolita” dresses have been released in nine gorgeous jewel tones, the pink version pictured above is a camping prize. The camping chairs, which require the Silver Rose Designs group tag, are underneath a tree in the courtyard of the main store. Only eight minutes and this simple, yet feminine summer dress is yours!

In the spirit of “the best things in life are free”, the jewelry I chose for the photo is also free! There are six free jewelry sets available at Lucas Lameth (SLURL), each with necklace, earrings, and bangles. Lucas Lameth Fine Jewelry, formerly Earthtones, has also been one of my favorite stores for ages, so I was happy to include Lucas’ jewelry!
