Most Likely To

Remember that one guy in high school, the one everyone liked, the one who spoke the truth but never spoke it so as to hurt anyone, the one who was a great athlete, great student, who would do anything to help anyone and also your pal, even though he had a girlfriend and you were a dork?

Most Likely To

Rob1977 Moonites is that guy for me. Even though he is a successful businessman and graphic designer, even though he is partnered to a lovely lady, he always has time to talk and joke around and lend his expertise. In fact, he designed the new blog theme I will be unveiling soon (once I get my stuff together) as a rez day gift after we talked about it for 2 hours at least (and yes he has a sexy Irish brogue). He really is tops.

Rob is also a great men’s fashion designer, lending his very male tastes to this underserved market. This incredible letter jacket (with “M” for “Mighty”?) is one of his latest creations. Made out of cleverly sculpted jacket and button placket and collar with puffy sculpted sleeves, this letter jacket brings to mind “Glee.” I wear it with black cords from Rob and a wife beater also made by him. The complete look is all guy (even smells like a guy).

Most Likely To

I show it with a skin from Aeon Jiminy that Rob turned me on to. Turn on is the story here with this skin. Between the handsomely drawn face and the hot bod, Aeon has made a new male skin for men who are looking for another look to add to their arsenal. (This skin also makes a particularly good one for guys who want to look like a good guy—the smiling lips, the kind eyes with the slight shadow underneath, the sexy whiskers.) I will mention that Aeon’s store is on an adult sim—only verified users can access. There is nothing particularly salacious there but without verification, you can’t get in.

All the Time

Have you ever felt just free and beautiful? I heard a song today on KCRW (y’all know I almost only listen to that) that had such a free and open beat.

All the Time

Wearing a breezy pretty dress from Sissy Pessoa is the perfect thing for a day like today. Sissy presents us with a spring/summer dress that is perfect for garden parties or weddings. With its almost abstract flower print on the bottom, sexily criss-crossed back and full translucent skirt, it is light and free, elegant and happy all at once.

All the Time

Lorac Farella has come out with yet another skin line, this being the Isabella II, a revamp of her Isabella line. I have styled it with dark eyes because of its lovely olive tinge and bold features. The elegantly shaped eyebrows, luscious full matte lips and gentle blush make me a knock out. Lorac’s almost painterly attention to her skins make them a different proposition for wearers. This woman is not nor ever will be “cute.” She is beautiful, striking, and mysterious.

Pajama Day

We frequently (much too frequently) have pajama day in my household. It is where everyone lounges around the house in their pajamas all day instead of getting dressed. It’s comfy and perfect for home (and yes, the rule is that we do change into new jammies before we go to bed).

Pajama Day

I found this darling outfit from Lika Ruby the other day and instantly needed a pajama day. Though they are not jammies per se, they are comfortable and silky, pretty enough for wandering the sim and building or gardening. With their lovely East Asian motif, ingenious sculpties and shimmering silky textures, they are the comfiest (and prettiest) pajama day attire ever.

Pajama Day

Wake up, put the hair in a ponytail, this one from Lamb Bellic, no makeup—just a fresh face from Tuli Asturias.

Pajama Day

I show them with flats from Callie Cline. She is my partner and was not a small bit insulted when I asked her where I could get pretty flats without realizing she sold the perfect ones. Thankfully, she did not throw them at me. (The beautiful color-changing jewel—12 colors!—could have potentially hit me in the head and wounded me). These are ideal. Textured with one of her pretty paisley textures, they include one of her signature gems. Diamonds are Callie’s best friend.

Pajama Day

Lazy day (playing a little Eliane Elias on the stereo (“My Foolish Heart”), drinking tea, reading the newspaper, feet up):

Wicked Fishing

Another in a seeming series of black and wicked outfits. I am beginning to wonder if this is some sort of unconscious response to all the pretty mermaid outfits I did last week.

Wicked

This outfit, once featured as the outfit in the fishing pond at DV8 (I kid you not), is my choice of sin today. With its sweetheart neckline, sexy off-shoulder sweater and shorty short flirty flexi skirt, this is an outfit made for sin.. but only in the sweetest way. Let me remark here that Vasha Martinek has further expanded on this outfit by making several colors of the tank that goes with this. She has this entire outfit (29 pieces which include a number of tops, jeans, this skirt, and the boots) and several colors of the boots on sale as well.

Wicked

I show it with a skin from Syndel Daviau, who showed at the Fantasy Faire. (Yes, I thought I was done too, but clearly not, because Syndel deserved her day.) Worn on my usual shape, the nose on this shape shows itself a bit differently, so my facial structure seems very changed. I really like the eyebrows (and remember, I am an eyebrow freak), and the coloring of the eye shadows is hauntingly beautiful. Syndel also chooses a decolletage with what might be called “enhanced” breasts. Many women in SL like this look; it’s not my usual but it suits this outfit perfectly.

Wicked

Finally the boots, also made by Vasha Martinek and also once part of the fishing expedition at DV8. (When have you ever gone fishing and HOPED you would get the boot?) She is serving up 13 (!) additional colors of these boots and yes, they can be purchased separately.

Stalking the Deal

The deal—it can be right there before your eyes, but to get your hands on it, to finally close—that requires a certain amount of stalking and cunning.

Stalking the Deal

For a woman, it’s sometimes harder to close the deal. The pressure about how you present is so strong—too sexual and you’re a mindless bimbo, too conservative and you’re unimaginative and frumpy. This look, put together from several elements, represents a woman who has sex appeal but also knows how to “git ‘er done” and done right. She doesn’t sacrifice her sexuality or femininity for a boring suit and she doesn’t sacrifice her integrity for bad business.

Onyx LeShelle helps break out of the boring suit trap with her new jacket (part of a set of clothing and shoes just released at Maitreya). With its almost tailored silhouette, it lacks the button-uptightness of most suits with its neutral linen colors and almost mandarin color. (And blessedly, the sculpties are mod so you can line the plackets up).

Stalking the Deal

Underneath a leopard print silk top, which I made from combining Morphine Janick’s bra with violett Ellils’ top (which lacked “coverage” when worn alone). Each piece separately would be too revealing. Together they worked. Long wool shorts from Migi Voom complete the look, showing a shapely leg but also provide a tailored and professional look.

The jewelry is where our businesswoman gets her touch of style. With leopard print hoops from violett Ellils and beautifully textured wild bangles from kikunosuke Eel, she pushes into the realm of dangerous (and she’s clearly careful about the details). Who wouldn’t want to seal the deal with her?

Stalking the Deal

Finally, shoes from cocoro Lemon. With their closed toe and black heel, they are quite conservative. It’s the open back and the wild (and just gorgeous) leopard skin fur that makes them outstanding and makes our lady command attention—for all the right reasons.

Stalking the Deal

Leather Princess

Some days you just want to run over to the Demonic Empire and listen to some hard rock or industrial and dance with your friends and have a good old time. OK, I have to admit, hard rock is not my thing, but the people at Demonic are as nice as they come.

Leather Princess

Even though I work for RFyre, I don’t generally dress for a Demonic Empire evening. (I just don’t get out that much.) Vixn Dagger, however, has made outfits that will take me to the Demonic and elsewhere. With her well-drawn system pieces, vamp styling (that is sexy but not ridiculous), and great proportion of skin to clothing (in other words, it’s not *all* hanging out but what is looks hot), she sells a sexy leather look for a reasonable price (and she includes with this look shoes AND boots).

Leather Princess

Vixn started out as a lady who sold shapes and eyes. She has quickly ramped up her business and offers a variety of women’s and men’s clothes for goth or club wear in her store. I will admit—Vixn is a friend of mine. And honestly, she is one of the hardest working women in SL. And Vixn knows sexy. When the leather pants are stripped off, this sexy thong and stocking set can be found underneath.

Leather Princess

A look like this demands a wild tossed hair. DBS Heart, known for such styles, made this particular beauty with tendrils that curl into the face, softening the face. And what a face—another by Tuli Asturias with its deep dark eyes and luscious dark lips. Beautiful dangling flexi earrings by Elbereth Nightfire finish the look.

Masked

Who is the woman behind the skin? For some people, the mask is so much a part of existing that it’s integral to one’s self. We hide behind the masks of our avatars, sometimes revealing only what we want others to see.

Masked

We use fashion as a sort of mask. Or a cultural representation. What does a top like LeeZu Baxter’s say? Well it might say we are fashionable, cutting edge, or simply girly (considering its beautifully rendered ruffle sculpties). The tied neck in back–is it sweet or sexy? Are you casual? Are you cutting-edge? Wealthy?

Masked

But what about the mask? In this case, Alia Baroque, who has generously sponsored the Dark Realms sim at the Fantasy Faire for RFL, presents a new set of skins to benefit RFL based on a spooky clown set—with fangs and without. Alia’s work is artistic, truly fantastical, and genuinely unique. We don’t see here just white on a face—it’s actually painted on. Our girl’s underlying facial structure is a little tough—she has a sort of stiff upper lip and a petulant bottom lip. The eyebrows are exaggerated but underneath the face paint, we can see the real eyebrows. This isn’t blobs of color slapped on a template—it’s true art. There is quite a story here about this masked woman. By wearing her skin, we begin to tell it.
