“As a newsman, I want to salute whoever came up with the term ‘polar vortex. It is terrifying but still sounds all science-y. A lesser meteorologist could have overreached with ‘arctic coldnado’ or ‘alaskan dick punch,’ but ‘polar vortex’ is restrained but menacing.” ~ Stephen Colbert
The cold has begun in my part of the world, much too soon. Who thought this was a good idea? After last winter, all romance for fall and winter has left my heart. Forget Christmas—I want my summer back! The cold is so pervasive to me that even in SL I feel I have to bundle up so the receipt of this new puffy jacket from Tatyana Ultsch was very welcome. Besides her deft mesh work and absolutely kick ass textures, she includes a HUD to color change this jacket into one of 14 colors. The detailing is astonishing. Leri Miles is offering these sleek pants at the Thrift Shop 7.0, and they also include a texture-change HUD. I attached Renee Harvy’s darling chunky loafers because I looked silly without feet. And I accessorized with old-school earmuffs from Antonia Marat and a great scarf from Trill Zapatero.
I wore this whole business over the Belleza Venus. I am not sure why but it’s just become more convenient for me to click alphas off than mess around trying to reconstitute myself with alphas and separate body parts and appliers for skin and fingernails and then toenails. I have heard the Maitreya body is just as gorgeous, so I can’t wait to see that one come out. I am wearing Sawsan Secretspy’s newest offer for the Designer Circle and I applied pretty pink lipstick from Constance Daehlie. My hair is a darling bun from MissAllSunday Lemon that she is offering at the Xiasumi School Festival.
