Violet in the Snow

The beautiful little dark purple violet is a flower of early spring, the first color to emerge after a long winter. This beautiful coat by SamanthaSJones reminds me so much of that beautiful little flower, especially with its deep lovely brocade texture with glistening accents. The buttons, the wide collar, the pocket plackets are all a romantic’s dream. The HUD comes with color change so you are not limited to just the violet—there is a deep green, gold, etc. Get the coat—you get a HUD with six colors in total. (And secret: if you rush over there you may still find it out for 55L if they didn’t pick it up yet!)

I wore Maxi Gossamer’s lovely little dragon’s egg pendant, which she is featuring at Collabor88. The stone, as you can see, has materials features so the light plays off the surface in a way you won’t see on most jewelry. I accessorized with tights from Bax Coed and fur boots from Cerberus Noel I chose especially for this look.

And Mirja Mills is up to sleek again with her updo, made for Amita Yorcliffe for the Miss Virtual World Challenge. Side swept and sophisticated, this style finishes my look with elegance.
