Warm clothes for winter
I think I’m particularly fond of items like coats and jackets and other winter-related clothing in SL simply because I never wear these types of clothes in RL. When I TP’d over to Skin Flicks to look for glove layer manicures (I got a French manicure from there when I first started SL and I really like it), my eyes inevitably wandered over to the clothing section where there were some coats and jackets prominently displayed.

This first outfit is the Victoria Winter Sport Outfit. I definitely took note of this outfit first! The collar, upper arm sleeve puffs, glove cuffs, and pants legs are all made of sculpty prims; the lower part of the jacket is actually on the skirt layer. As you can see, there’s lots of brown on this outfit, and it’s nicely accented with a gold and white scoopneck shirt that’s mostly hidden except for the arms.
I really dug those puffs on the sleeves; they reminded me a little bit of those cute jackets sold at Tuli that I also like a lot. The pants get my seal of approval too, because of the flattering highlighting and folds that have been drawn onto the seat that will probably make any butt look nice.
The items that are on the system layers are not modifiable, but all of the prim parts are, and the whole thing is transferrable. (Wish I’d thought to look here during the holiday shopping season!)
I also picked up the Victoria Winter coat. The coat comes in black, pink, red, beige, and grey; it took me quite a while to decide what color to get before I decided on black. ^_^ I was pleased to discover that it can be worn in two lengths: there is a prim skirt for the longer version, and a system skirt layer for the shorter version. The skirt prims are flexi, while the collar, sleeve cuffs, and the tie above the waist are sculpties.
Another item I found was this cape from MNK Shop in the Americamura sim. (Gotta love these Japanese sims!) It was love at first sight, what with it’s cuteness, it’s pinkness, it’s fluffy puffy white furballs adorning the neck area, and frilly lacy layers underneath. Even the name given the cape is delicious — they dubbed it the “strawberry chocolate milk cape”.
It’s fun to watch the cape swish around your avi as you navigate about. The cape is almost completely made of prims, with flexiprims for the part that drapes down and sculpty prims for the shoulders and arms (there are two prims for each arm). It comes with a jacket layer item, too, to accommodate your avi’s movements.
MNK Shop has left a bunch of gifts lying around, too. I saw things like belts, a fur shawl, some free poses and an adorable fluffy cat-in-a-box hat. I couldn’t be arsed with taking pics of all of them except for my two favorite gifts, which were the hat and the poses. :p
