..and I have *just* the thing. One of the problems with Winter coats is that usually they’re so darn formal; big and heavy structured woolen numbers that look perfect when you’re all dressed up but when you want something warm yet dressed-down they just don’t work. The perfect solution then is a parka, and rejoice for APHORISM have released just the thing at THE SEASON’S STORY (opens 10th January)
The Winchester Parka is available for both sexes (You’ll see the male version at TMD, available now) and is the perfect casual Second Life winter jacket. The female version includes the always handy Maitreya Autohide option to make wearing super easy, but really all you need to decide is which option to go for, because there are plenty of great colours to choose from.
I chose to go all bright and pink because, well, why the hell not? In fact, this is a GREAT look; add some leggings and flats, or just rain-boots and you’re good to go! Stick on a beanie and some headphones and you’re urban to the max, especially if you add jeans and sneakers. As usual (for me anyway) a lot of the joy I get from Second Life clothing is knowing whether I could wear this in real life, and I so could. The material looks chunky and dense, and the texture is spot on; a bit of twill and rib and lots of wrinkles and shading in all the right places make this a must-have item.
Do not miss this; it’s a cracking coat and one that is sure to prove extremely popular in-world and with good reason. Right, I’m off for a pint…

PS – Yes, I’m wearing a mesh head after swearing blind (not that long ago either) that I would never wear one. What can I say other than I got bored over the festive period, gave one a whirl and fell in love! I’ll talk more about this epiphany very soon..
