Yankee Doodle Dandy

31 08 2010

The pin-up girl—idealized femininity for the wall—became a source of morale for men fighting overseas during WWII. (Not sure what the women fighting overseas got. I know they were there–my great-aunt was a WAC.)

Yankee Doodle Dandy

This sailor girl would probably do well on someone’s wall. Moxie Polano made this swimsuit with sailor hat in honor of vintage fashioniasta Reghan Straaf to celebrate the pin-up. With its cleverly crafted wrinkles (especially puckering around the thighs), it’s more than just a swimsuit—it’s a piece of art. Moxie combines her great skills with system pieces with some great sculpties.

Yankee Doodle Dandy

I love this skin from Rack Brautigan. I am not a freckle girl, but these freckles are so perfect—they fall so naturally on the skin and the shading is perfect on the collarbone. Rack has opened a new store next to MichiMi and shows a wide variety of skins that may appeal to ladies who are looking for a new look.

Calling You

30 07 2010

Busy, busy, running around. That’s SL and RL. The best part of SL, however, is you can open an IM window and call your friend immediately.

Calling You

This little outfit is perfect for running around SL. The top, from Lavea Alter, is a cute little offering at the Car Wash Cart Sale, ideal for summer outfits and perfect paired with this skirt, from miu Villota, which is probably more a winter piece but works as a sort of ethnic fabric.

Calling You

I put on this cute new set of jewelry from Kayleigh McMillan, which completes the look and makes me look more studied and less disheveled. Even more important is my iPhone accessory from Erehwon Yoshikawa, which is a little gift for a Techie Hunt this weekend. Wear the phone and KEEP it on. It has some surprises ;)

Calling You

Finally these sexy shoes from Nardya Rousselot complete the look. Stylish but comfy platforms with cute bows and just gorgeous toes. (I am all about the toes. Nardya made the bestest toes!)

Calling You

Heat It Up

3 07 2010

We’re starting to hit the hotter days of summer. I hate closing the windows and turning on the AC. I suffer through what seems like 6 months of snow so I can have the luxury of opening the windows 2 or 3 months a year. So the windows are staying open. Just means I have to dress skimpier ;)

Heat It Up

This sweet little ensemble from Trinetty Skytower might cause a little heat inside, for the right person ;) With its lacy bodice, Moulin Rouge gloves, and bowtied gartered thigh high stockings, it’s gonna take someone’s mind off the heat outside and put it were it belongs.

Heat It Up

I chose to style it in a more retro fashion, with one of Lion Jonesford’s newest skins as a base. With its red lips and heavily made up eyes, it’s seductive and glowing. Hair is a retro wavy page boy from Truth Hawks. Especially cute are the curly bangs.

Heat It Up

Some like it hot ;)

Blonde Ambition

1 07 2010

Open the pages of Town and Country and you will see society ladies posing at various black-tie events with their hair blown out, their make-up professionally applied, their brand-new designer dresses freshly pressed. Who are these women?

Blonde Ambition

Well in SL, this woman is Harper and she has a brand new dress from MariaElena Barbosa, part of the summer collection at MEB. The entire collection has a black and white theme, and MariaElena finished it off with this formal piece. With its ruched bodice, open skirt and designer look, this dress is perfect for the society woman, especially with spectator pumps from Onyx LeShelle.

Blonde Ambition

I show with this volume-pumped style from Lamb Bellic’s recent 50L Friday offering and Tuli Asturias’ exclusive skin being offered at The Deck. The vibrant makeup offsets the monochrome of the outfit. I show a beautiful necklace from AvaGardner Kungler with this dress. Perhaps it needed diamonds or something smaller but our society lady wanted to make a statement with this necklace.

Casual Blonde

12 06 2010

Summer weekends are so easy. Throw on a top, jeans, sandals, put a pin in your hair, all set. It’s a good time to count blessings, to be grateful for what we have rather than what we don’t have.

Casual Blonde

In this case I have a new top and new capris. The top, from LeeZu Baxter, comes in sheer and opaque, but I chose sheer, because she has made the color so beautifully delicate, especially as it is draped at the decollatage. It’s a t-shirt, yes, of the silkiest sheerest material. I wear it over a bra from 5th and Oxford—a chic, sexy look that suits. The capris are well-drawn system pieces from Babyhoney Bailey. This is avatar fashion at its essential—no prims, no gimmicks. Babyhoney’s work stands the test with great seams, wrinkles, colors and a nice round booty.

Casual Blonde

My ‘do is a new one from Truth Hawks with his ingenious streaks. I have subtly applied white streaks to this delicious champagne for that sun-kissed look. Tuli Asturias gives me a healthy glow with one of her new Jade skins.

Casual Blonde

i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

Staff

I have taken on the dubious task of helping for SL7B, which has turned into a lot more work than expected. (Though this always happens.) As I flit from parcel to parcel, setting up media and chatting with residents and digging big holes in Sejong’s terraforming, I try to look as fashionable as I can, because that’s really what I am all about—being fashionable!

Staff

I have this breezy easy dress from Yaszi Mornington on. We all know (or should know) that Yaszi’s men’s clothing is outstanding. Well he has a few choice pieces for women too, including this darling dress made of system pieces and sculpty prims. What is amazing is that he is able to take the sculpties and instead of stiffness, they look truly full of motion and breeziness. Rarely do I catch the prim looking stiff to me.

Staff

I have Mallory Cowen’s glowing and happy skin on, trying to look fresh and youthful and full of energy (though I am exhausted already). I have cute new shoes from Kayleigh McMillan that, despite all my running around, are comfy. (It might help that I am not walking as much as tp’ing.) And I have my handy badge to identify me as “Staff.” Think they notice the photo in it?

Busy, busy, busy….!
