Strawberry Fields

Let me take you down, cuz I’m going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

~ “Strawberry Fields Forever” by The Beatles

Strawberry Fields

Strawberry-flavored lip gloss (and I don’t mean THAT Strawberry) and a bright pink outfit and my dreary cold winter is brightened. Start with this darling sleeveless top from Cecilia Blachere that she is offering at the Designer Circle over Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus’ latest sexy mini leather skirt and I am strawberry fields forever. I couldn’t resist cranking it up with tights from LacunaInc from The Attic and LeeZu Baxter’s latest mesh boots, so sexy and funky and fashionable.

Strawberry Fields

Once again Paul and Bastchild give you the great color change HUD so that you can wear this versatile skirt over and over. And of course as always, Paul gives you a really fine fanny. In fact, this mesh is engineered really well with a great curve on the hips, iat the waist and even in the option of alphas (there IS an upskirt option, you naughty ones). This is what it comes down to—you get a “fatpack” in a great HUD, sexy leather textures and a finely-engineered butt. It’s a must have.

mini hud

Tricky and Shyla Boucher are offering this lovely skin at Collabor88 this month. For the low price they are offering this, it’s a deal ebcause you get all the brows and a bunch of lipsticks per package. Get yourself down there before Collabor88 closes to pick up this sexy skin. Of course I couldn’t resist finding the pinkyest strawberryest hair in Kavar Cleanslate’s colors and wearing it. It’s absolutely gorgeous if you are going for fantasy or whack dye jobs. *Smacks my strawberry-flavored lips smugly*

Strawberry Fields

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It’s getting hard to be someone but it all works out
It doesn’t matter much to me
Let me take you down, cuz I’m going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real and nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

“Unless one decorates one’s house for oneself alone, best leave it bare, for other people are walleyed.” ~ D.H. Lawrence

Home

This is going to be one of those mega blog entries where I share all the pretties I have picked up or been given. Start with this fabulous skybox from Tobias Corvair, which he is featuring at Fameshed. He calls it the “Architect’s Skybox” but I have figured out that it’s the gacha-player’s skybox with all its wall space and shelves. I hung the clever windowboxes from Barnesworth Anubis outside with his pansies and vines (which you can’t see) and took a shot through the window. Barnesworth makes the flowers super big so you can arrange and shrink them. A great tip is to LINK them when you have arranged to reduce the land impact.

Home

Tobias gives the main floor a big space so you can enjoy a main living and social area. I arranged a more traditional chair from Hideki Carami’s gacha at Chapter Four (you get two chairs in the “prize”) with Cory Edo’s latest chairs for Collabor88. Cory’s chairs come in a handful of great decorating colors (lots of neutrals) and have a huge variety of poses and animations and, if you’re in the mood for love, delectable adult animations.

Home

Tobias tucks little shelves under the staircases—the one up to the bedroom, which I made into a contemplative loft lounge—and then another up to a top-floor balcony. I put some of my yard sale gacha finds on the shelves, particularly my collection of art dummies from Robin Sojourner. (Yes, I do the gacha yard sales. Your trash is my treasure!) And he gives you an abundance of walls. I was able to hang my entire collection of LeeZu Baxter gacha posters around the skybox.

Home

Tya Fallingbridge has a nice set of home accessories at FaMESHed including this modern lounge chair with footstool, side table and funky flower lamp. The chair includes several relaxing poses including this contemplative one, perfect for resting and listening to music after a long day.

I opted to make coffee the theme of the kitchen downstairs, using a darling graphic from Isabelle Requiem’s gacha at Oh My Gacha. She includes several kitchen and house décor items, including the rug beneath my feet. These little touches are what makes a house a home.

Home

My outfit is an assemblage of pieces I liked together—first, the slouchy sweater from Sanura Snowpaw, a warm casual look for being at home. I paired it with Ivey Deschanel’s skirt from her ensembles at the Dressing Room Fusion. I am so glad to see Ivey working with mesh. Her textures have always been outstanding and at 70L, the skirt and top (which you don’t see here) are a steal with the quality she puts into them. My little boots are LeeZu Baxter’s mesh concoctions, wearable art on my feet rather than just on the walls.

Shyla Diggs has come out with a new skin for Collabor88, and I wear it with pleasure, opting for a pale lip to match the smoky eye, which accents a pair of eyes from Umazuma Petaluna’s gacha at Chapter Four. Fortunately, I lucked into these blue beauties though looking at her prize board, they are are all gorgeous. Amberly Boccacio is offering several colors of this funky necklace at Collabor88—it comes with silver or gold metal. And Circe Ishtari has made a long short cut with winsome wisps and a color change menu in the hair itself—click for colors and relax.

Dream Within a Dream

Dream Within a Dream

“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe

Dream Within a Dream

Whenever I wear one of LeeZu Baxter’s creations, I feel like I am in some sort of fantastic dream. With their explosion of texture and colors and shapes, LeeZu’s creations push beyond standard fashion in SL and challenge the status quo of slapping textures on mesh templates. LeeZu just released a gown of epic proportions—mesh with a variety of patterns and textures—and when I say “texture,” I mean texture. You can feel the gold in the stripes, you can sense the pull of the tentacles through the air from the headpiece and hear the tulle shifting around under the voluminous skirts as you walk. What better dream than the one in pure sensual technicolor?

Dream Within a Dream

Maizon Rayna’s pretty Christmas tree drops down my back and hangs from my ears. The beautiful gold jewelry is better late than never in this blog. And once again I revisit Rocketta Haven’s newest skin, a delicate dreamlike beauty with full lips and a painterly visage. I can’t help but float in this dream within a dream.

Dream Within a Dream

Where the Wild Things Are

20 12 2013

Where the Wild Things Are

You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you. ~ Isadora Duncan

Where the Wild Things Are

Today I can’t be tamed. Start with a top from LeeZu Baxter, a system top done in Leezu’s magnificent artistry with ruffles at the bottom, little buttons, clipped straps. The old fashioned system piece, when done well, is still a wonderful avatar look and Leezu is one of the few that has the skill to pull it off. I pair it with Ivey Deschanel’s gift from the KittyCats Advent Calendar—a set of wild mesh pants with animal skin on the cuff. She includes four pairs in the gift—this is one of them. It’s a perfect gift for wild cats.

Where the Wild Things Are

Aida Ewing recently released the Kaelyn skin, which I have enjoyed wearing in the India tone. Some of the makeups are bold and some are subtle. This one is in between. AvaGardner Kungler offers this chic necklace based on organic shapes and probably real life jewelry. I love how Ava experiments with her jewelry, shapes and colors. Finally, Mina Nakamura put out this great side swept tousled look. I love how it wraps around the neck with pieces going down in back and a lock escaping in the front. It’s so natural and wild.

Eva

27 10 2013

Eva

“Eva knows I’m terra incognita and explores me unhurriedly, like you did. Because she’s lean as a boy. Because her scent is almonds, meadow grass. Because if I smile at her ambition to be an Egyptologist, she kicks my shin under the table. Because she makes me think about something other than myself. Because even when serious she shines. Because she prefers travelogues to Sir Walter Scott, prefers Billy Mayerl to Mozart, and couldn’t tell a C major from a sergeant major. Because I, only I, see her smile a fraction before it reaches her face…. Because her laughter spurts through a blowhole in the top of her head and sprays all over the morning. Because a man like me has no business with this substance “beauty,” yet here she is, in these soundproof chambers of my heart.” ~ David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

Eva

I am reading Cloud Atlas, and oh, what a great book! This quote is only a smidgen of the gorgeousness of David Mitchell’s writing, which changes in voice among his characters. (Oh, Robert Frobisher, you wily sexy penniless bon vivant bisexual composer.. what a delicious wit you have!)

My Eva is a credit to the romantic love the narrator feels for her. Start with this charming mesh dress from LeeZu Baxter. With its flowered blouse and Victorian style sleeves, lace pencil skirt and satin hem, this gorgeous piece is an homage to the 70s in its complex textures and silhouette. LeeZu has added a subtle shimmer to the fabric, a satiny gloss that shows well in the new materials viewing in SL. BabyChampagne Sass’ high-heeled, high-fashion shoes

I paired Maizon Rayna’s gorgeous jewelry with the outfit. A real life fashion designer, Maizon has always dreamed of being a jewelry maker and in SL she can do it. This gorgeous onyx pearl set with its accompanying flower-shaped jeweled ring includes earrings and a bracelet, which I do not show.

Eva

Aida Ewing’s gorgeous Vera skin gives our Eva a perfect look with darkly lined eyes and a pale pink lipstick and blush. Queue Marlowe’s latest, a side swept ‘do, gives the whole look a beautifully blonde tumble of curls. And Reira Islay’s eyes, sold at the Halloween Mini Mart, are intensely lovely.

Crème Brûlée

11 10 2013

Crème Brûlée

“Some of us are crèmes brûlées, unfortunately in the presence of those who would rather have corn dogs. We can try to degenerate into corn dogs to make them happy, or we can just accept the fact that we were made for Paris!” ~ C. JoyBell C.

Crème Brûlée

Crème brûlée—that sweet creamy confection with the hard outer shell—a better metaphor for some personalities than mushy strawberry shortcake or fluffy angel food cake or fussy soufflé. It’s an elegant dessert with a subtle reward of richness and sweetness. This look gives the same—with a cream colored dress, criss-crossing over the chest with tiered ruffles on the hips, it’s a sleek look from LeeZu Baxter.

Look closely and you can see how LeeZu uses the materials feature in the SL Viewer to make the dress have a more matte material, especially compared to the glossy leather handbag from Goucchi/Steffen Garcia and my strappy gold sandals from Gospel Voom (both available at Collabor88) and my glossy gold earrings from Anastazja Brimm. It’s this juxtaposition of textures—just like the hard carmelized top of crème brûlée is broken open to find a creamy custard—that makes this look pure confection.

Crème Brûlée

Chiaki Xue has just come out with this side-swept curly short style. No one does shorter, curlier styles like Chiaki, and the textures and curls in the hair add a humanness and complexity that many hairs lack in SL. My skin is Umazuma Metaluna’s newest offering, a rich beautiful visage with an optional glow and gloss for the lips. I added eyeliner from Ekilem, which is being offered at TDR Fusion, to pop the eyes, which are chocolatey confection from Umazuma.

Char

7 07 2011

Char

Char is our girl today. Born in the 80s, she is the daughter of a brief but fruitful marriage between an aging rock star and a young groupie. Her daddy, Slim Jim Ross, was a rock star “in the 60s or 70s or something,” Char says. Her momma, considerably younger, was a Jazzercise instructor he met on tour in Tulsa. Now her momma teaches Zumba in Santa Monica and lives in a two-bedroom ranch paid for with his alimony, and Char lives in with her Daddy in Brentwood.

Slim Jim had two hits: “You Ain’t My Baby (No More)” and “In Your Velvet Spaceship.” (“Yeah, Baby, that song was for your mother, Crystal,” he coughed out, taking his first toke after a 5 mile jog. “But Daddy, my mom was Christine.” “Yeah, that’s what I said, right? Christine.” Crystal was his second wife. Her mother was his fourth. Char knew he had it wrong.) Char was named Chardonnay, after her momma’s favorite wine. Char is the apple of her father’s eye, his youngest, his “Baby Girl,” the one spending her siblings’ inheritance via increments of charges on his American Express.

Char

This may lead you to believe that Char has no redeeming values beyond those of being Slim Jim’s progeny, but that is not true. When J-Lo doesn’t know what to wear, she rings up Char. When Paris is perplexed, she phones Char. When Beyonce is befuddled, she texts Char. The Olson twins somehow lost Char’s number. That’s because Char shops so much, so knows where to get it all.

And her outfit today is comprised of only the best: first a top and skirt from LeeZu Baxter, designer extraordinaire. LeeZu puts the micro in the mini with this skirt—a waistband barely clinging to a scrap of flowered fabric. So brief it’s like a moment in time except LeeZu still manages to cover the essentials without making it ridiculous. Then the flowered top—a collage of tassel and lace and rose with textured sheer cotton. Char shows plenty of midriff but she knows looking trashy is not what she wants.

Char

Her boots are from another extraordinary designer—Bax Coen. One of the new set of animal prints Bax has put out, this is more fashionable slant on animal. In this case, the animal is the SoCal shopper with her stiletto heels. With its uniquely scripted fitting system and multi-texturing options, these boots are just what Char loves—versatile.

Char took a trip to the makeup counter at Curio and got a great free sample with her purchase. This pretty pink visage is Gala Phoenix’s offering to all who join the Truth District Update Group. Grab it now from past notices before it’s gone. (Look at those luscious lips.)

Finally, Char’s hair, which she (and I) love—a long breezy casually feathered ‘do from Kavar Cleanslate, available at Hair Fair 2011. When Char saw the cut and color, she said, “This is so Rodeo Drive, darling.”

Char

In your velvet spaceship
I find it strangely comfortable
In your UFO of looooove.
Probe me, explore me, penetrate my mind
Take me to the galaxies
In your velvet spaceship, your sp-sp-spaceship.

Sweet Surrender

29 06 2011

Sweet Surrender

I could spend my life in this sweet surrender. ~ Aerosmith

Sweet Surrender

One set of images that have left the mainstream grid, for the most part, is the sight of people in alternative lifestyles doing their thing. BDSM players, ponygirls, burlesque dancers, latex lovers, furries—they have, for the most part, been consigned to what some call the ghetto—Zindra. SL has been wiped clean and sanitized, presumably for the couple hundred of kids who migrated over from the Teen Grid. (And who could find much worse on the Internet all on their own.)

Really it was sanitized for all of us. I admit I don’t miss seeing some big burly avatar dragging his slave girl around a store as she hopped up and down from nadu to standing like some inane bunny. But let’s not forget one of the engines that made SL what it is today: sex. The sex industry made the need for great fashion, for scripted furniture, for sexy skins, for crazy-high shoes and for skyboxes. The biggest earners in SL—even before Anshe Chung—was Stroker Serpentine. And he made his money off of sex beds. We built this city on .. well.. sex.

I honor that with this outfit from LeeZu Baxter, who came out with a whole series of inventive pieces under a line name of “BDSM” a few months ago. I love this piece with its combination of burlesque and bondage, from the collar to the big fishnet stockings (which DO terminate at the ankle) to the corset to the ropes around the wrists. Is she domme or sub? What is she speaking of when she finds her “sweet surrender”–the chance to free herself of restraint with her sub or the chance to surrender to her dom? Her 11” platform heels from Viktoria Brandenburg tell you she is not just dressing up—she means business.

Sweet Surrender

The best skin for such an intense look—sexy, fierce, detailed—is one from Hart Larsson. For some reason, I always take Hart’s out when I am showing lingerie or something sexy. I am guessing I am drawn to using it because of the detail he pays to the skin—from the collarbone to the butt cheeks to the shoulder blades and knees. Additionally, he allows you to add makeups to make the skin look completely different. Here I wear bright red glossy lipstick. I just received these new alluring eyes from Ikon Innovia, who is dipping into more fantastic colors and combinations.

Pink Funk

Pink Funk

There is definitely something sexy about a girl with an attitude and a pair of leather pants. ~ Eliza Dushku

Pink Funk

LeeZu Baxter does it again—making something so drop-dead sexy that I can only stare at myself. First the top, which was released a couple weeks ago. She combines a drapey bodice barely clinging to the body, held on by a zippered collar and wonderfully textured in her inimitable way. Then there are the leather pants, integrated with the boots and textured with a stylistic contrasting leather. Honey, does my ass look TOO wonderful in these?

Pink Funk

Atomicsparkle Skytower has released a new set of skins. One of the more beloved skin makers on the grid, she offers this set with its full lipstick on tattoo layers. I opted to don a full wavy style from Queue Marlowe, who keeps threatening to come out with more hair soon (once she recovers from her whirlwind trip to Europe). My eyelashes, from Viola Leigh, have little specks of glitter.

Distractions

9 05 2011

I love the song “Distractions” by Zero 7. The sound of it makes me think of a big white modern house on a beach, waves crashing outside, light bouncing off the tiles of the uncluttered floor.

Distractions

This is the woman who would live there—elegant, expensively clothed. Her top, from Nena Janus, is a silk piece that softly drapes over her soft spa-maintained skin, and tied casually at the waist. Her capris from LeeZu Baxter look like an evolution of Lilly Pulitzer with their baroque pattern and ruffled hem. Stylish and practical little pumps from Elie Spot reveal her rich tastes.

Distractions

She has a subtle tan (but not over the top—this is not Jersey Shore) and well shaped brows courtesy of Inka Mexicola. Her sheer lipstick came from a glossy black tube she purchased from Mocksoup Graves. Her necklace, seemingly simple, is a nice piece she bought from Rob1977 Moonites. It reminds her of a Lalique heart she has  on a silk cord that she got in Paris.

Distractions

I love you, I love you, I love you, I do
I only make jokes to distract myself
From the truth, from the truth.
