During the Black Out

During the Black Out

The other day I logged out while I was shopping a cart sale on the Flawless sim and meant to just come back and poke around a little more the next day. I logged in to find SL was locked up in some crazy grid-wide mess. Of course I couldn’t tp out, so I ended up spending the day on that one sim. I heard people in voice as I wlked around and then I heard “Harper!” It was Kira Paderborn (who has a fab voice, by the way) and she introduced me to her friend, Aisha Convair. We had a nice chat and then Aisha showed me her baby—the Designer Showcase, which was on that sim. A boutique featuring items from some terrific designers, every piece is under 100L, and the offerings are quite nice. She changes selections every 15th and 30th.

I, of course, had to shop immediately after the all-clear. (Well, I shopped before but it all went through—I couldn’t wait.) I picked up this great little sweater from Sira Savira with its funky design and great color and textures. I paired with it this skirt form Jazmyn Diesel, part of a whole other cute outfit she is selling.

During the Black Out

My casual updo was also available at the Designer Showcase, made by Carina Larsen and available in a pack of essential colors. I dug in my inventory and found these great boots from Paul LaPointe, part of the L&B donation for Fashion for Life. (Yes, I bought all 20 colors.) My socks were a pair made by Eshi Otawara on a day when she was feeling like making socks, I guess.

I love this little bicycle from Winter Thorn that she sold at the Pose Fair. It has three simple poses, but it’s perfect for a little photo shoot in a garden.

Sara, you’re the poet in my heart
Never change, never stop

I was shooting this look and this song popped up and “poet” seemed a perfect description for the look. With flowing scarves, this poetic look comes courtesy of Sonatta Morales. I went shopping this weekend, having a little mad money, and treated myself to this gorgeous dress. Reminiscent of the flowing robes of Erte models of the 30s, this beautiful piece takes my breath away with the styling and pure elegant “otherness” if it.

I also bought some new hair.I kept hearing in groups that Pocket Mirrors had some nice vintage pieces. The last time I saw them at Hair Fair, I found a nice updo but not a ton. Well Alair Cortes has been darn busy making hair—vintage hair, men’s hair, swank hair, short hair, long hair, up hair, down hair. I love this bob—not *quite* Louise Brooks—more contemporary.

My earrings are from a new creator—Sax Shepherd—who is offering contemporary mesh jewelry for discerning women. I liked the few pieces I saw. I look forward to seeing more.  And I love these poses from Olaenka Chesnokov, based on vintage looks. I bought up all her 30s possibilities.

In My Garden

In My Garden

“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”  ~ Henri Matisse

In My Garden

I just sold my sim—it was getting to be too much to hassle with—and my friends and I all moved to a half sim with Dream Seeker Estates. When I went to sell my sim, it was such a marvelous things because my friends all rallied and we decided to go together. Of course, they ended up meeting up in Paris in RL right after the big move while I stayed at home, but if it means I can live among them virtually, I am perfectly happy.

I have enjoyed “feathering my nest,” as it were, and I have plopped down birch trees I got a few years ago at the RFL events, a bunch of flowers and a little gazebo, where I put this great new mesh furniture from Cory Edo, which she is selling at her store for Stumblebum. The set includes table, chairs as you see and a great fire pit plus a lantern.

It’s a perfect environment for showing you this great new mesh pantsuit from LeeZu Baxter with its beautiful brocade textures. Look how great I look sitting in this! It’s chic and fit me perfectly, allowing me to accessorize as I please.

In My Garden

This fresh skin from Aida Ewing is PERFECT with Kavar Cleanslate’s mesh hair. I matched Aida’s red-haired skin with one of Kavar;s newest in a bright red. My blue eye make-up echoes the blue in my Ikon Innovia eyes, all put together to echo the color of the flowers and the beautiful outdoors.

Pixie Dust

Pixie Dust

“All you need is a little faith, trust, and pixie dust.” -Peter Pan

Pixie Dust

This pixie is darling and amazingly constructed. Ameshin Yossarian has taken mesh and made some really great little things from it including this little pixie. A generous creation for RFL, this is a darling little avatar for those who want to flit around SL as a purple pixie. She sells the boots and dress, the horns and the necklace as separate add-ons and they really enhance the look. And all proceeds to go to RFL, so go get it and find your inside pixie.

Pixie Dust

Why am I wearing this little pixie? Well it IS cute but it’s not part of my normal blogging line up. This is one of the four items from the four specific designers that were assigned to me to blog for Fantasy Faire, and certainly this was a very generous piece to be given for blogging and a generous offering to benefit RFL.

Submission

Submission

“The submission of her body without love or desire is degrading to the woman’s finer sensibility, all the marriage certificates on earth to the contrary notwithstanding.” ~ Margaret Sanger

Submission

Maybe it’s time to give Fantasy Faire a little sex appeal. All the fairies and pixies notwithstanding, nothing sells as well as sex, and I am here to dish it up. First I start with the tempting entry title—Submission—and then I lay it on thick with this sexy outfit from Nenya Eun. One of her submissions (pun intended) for the Fantasy Faire, with all proceeds going to Relay for Life, it’s skimpy yes, but that’s intended. Consider the pieces valuable—each little square inch much more so because you get such a little garment to give so much to Relay for Life.

Submission

I submit to you that nothing is more sexy than a long lush head of hair, especially in a beautiful blonde like this one from Truth Hawks. He is bringing sexy back in his mesh hairs, which finally sit right on my head and provide all the amazing textures and life we have come to expect from Truth.

My glowing skin is one of Hush Darkrose’s newest, and uniquely hers with a blushing demeanor and sexy sexy features like the soft sensuous lips and beautiful skin tone. For once a cleavage look makes total sense and in this outfit, with my abundance of fine uh.. features, I can offer myself to the most worthy and know he deserves my submission.

Fairy Tale

Fairy Tale

Let the little fairy in you fly! ~ Rufus Wainwright

Fairy Tale

Fantasy Faire opens today across 9 sims and there are many beautiful things to buy which benefit Relay for Life. Take, for example, this lovely dress with wings from Evangeline Miles. As always, Evangeline lends her luscious textures to the making of this beauty with the deep red almost shimmering with richness. I love how the halter top gathers up to a clutch of flowers, lending this otherwise sexy dress an otherworldliness.

Fairy Tale

I went over to Rhapzody Wilde’s store to find a skin that would suit this fairy look and while I found many pretty skins, the one I liked the most was her group gift, so I happily joined her group and put it on. With its pretty blush and expressive eyes, it’s the ideal look for the lovely fairygirl. I put Mocksoup Graves’ dimples on because.. I dunno… I think fairies have dimples.

Queue Marlowe’s newest woven hair is ideal for this look. With its fantastic woven side and rich color plus her distinctive wild curls, it’s the ideal fairy hair. And I keep my hair back with a new gold barrette from Tiffy Vella, ornate and golden beautiful.

A Tale of Two Sisters

The Fantasy Faire opens April 21 with nine sims and many great fantasy designers. Kouse Singh, who has always supported Relay for Life generously with her content and time, has produced these two beautiful dresses that I am showing on two beautiful sisters. Each is embellished with red roses at the hips and neck and as usual, Kouse lends her dreamlike imagination to the construction with a laced up bodice, lace sleeves and a flowing skirt.

My sisters wear the same set of skins from Aida Ewing, the absolutely breathtaking Leah. What I love about this set is the availability of different brows and make-ups. And of course, it has Aida’s perfect touch with classy deep make-ups and a glowing skin, which has been dusted with freckles.
