Bohemian Like You

Bohemian Like You

Wait
Who’s that guy
Just hanging at your pad
He’s looking kinda bummed
Yeah, you broke up, that’s too bad.
I guess it’s fair if he always pays the rent
And he doesn’t get bent
about sleeping on the couch when I’m there.

‘Cause I like you
yeah I like you
And I’m feeling so bohemian like you

~ “Bohemian Like You” by the Dandy Warhols

Bohemian Like You

I shuffled around in my inventory and put together this bohemian look today. First I start with the great sweater/tank set from Ariadna Garrigus that comes with a darling mini skirt I chose not to wear. It includes a texture-change HUD with three options for different looks. I paired it with some baggy shorts I got a bit back from Kristabel Ashmoot that include a super-skinny red belt, which provided the pop of color that inspired red tights from Maya Levane. A casual necklace with texture changes for the beads and cord from Maxi Gossamer and awesome boots from Kinu Mayako that include a great HUD and are discounted at Thrift Shop, and I am set with one of those hodgepodge looks that seems to come together somehow.

I think this cute hair with a braid running over the front from Truth Hawks kind of pulls it all together. It’s bohemian and girly and messy and dyed at the ends. And an intensely lined eye from Sawsan Secretspy, her new skin for Suicide Dollz, makes our bohemian girl ready to face the day.

I wanted to congratulate my name doppleganger, Harper Ganesvoort, on SEVEN YEARS of blogging about SL and fashion. Harper has been exploring the grid all this time with intelligence, panache and love for all this time, putting the rest of us to shame with her dedication and enthusiasm. Congratulations, Harper!

Diana

Diana

Diana, she loves me
No innocence or compromise
Diana, she loves me
The only way she knows

~ “Diana” by Paolo Nutini

Diana

This sexy, sophisticated song seems to match the look I put together for today, so let’s call her “Diana.” First is Harry Hyx’s on spot top, a constructed tunic, sleeveless and belted in front with a graphically appealing open back and asymmetric hemline. This mesh piece is wonderfully rigged and fits very well with a great alpha. Underneath I chose wide-leg slacks from Datrip Blackbart, which he will have at the next Showroom. New boots from Senzati0n Domenitzo, discounted at this month’s Thrift Shop, finish the look.

Diana

Umazuma Metaluna’s newest skin as the most arresting eyes, verging on a beautiful maturity that gives the skin a ton of character and reveals a woman of substance, not just a pretty princess. With Uma’s characteristic sensuously full lips (which I adored with her customizable lipstick from another set), the skin includes a beautiful hairbase and her lush skin tones. Truth Hawks just came out with another wavy long style, with curls corkscrewing down beautifully with his lovely textures. And Maxi Gossamer presents this artistic set of jewelry at Collabor88, a fatpack in one with her texture change scripts.

My Name Is Red

My Name Is Red

“I’m so fortunate to be red! I’m fiery. I’m strong. I know men take notice of me and that I cannot be resisted.

I do not conceal myself: For me, delicacy manifests itself neither in weakness nor in subtlety, but through determination and will. So, I draw attention to myself. I’m not afraid of other colours, shadows, crowds or even of loneliness. How wonderful it is to cover a surface that awaits me with my own victorious being! Wherever I’m spread, I see eyes shine, passions increase, eyebrows rise and heartbeats quicken. Behold how wonderful it is to live! Behold how wonderful to see. I am everywhere. Life begins with and returns to me. Have faith in what I tell you.”

~ “My Name is Red” by Orhan Pamuk

My Name Is Red

Barely sent me a snap of Ziki Questi in this dress and I had had HAD to have it. It’s a buy on Marketplace from LindaB Helendale, a mesh dress with color and texture change HUD for the little coins and links. With materials added to the mix, the whole piece is a sexy mod (modern, not modifiable) dress for the hottest nights out. It fit absolutely perfectly over the Belleza Mesh Body, which will be seeing developer kits (today!), updates to the current body, and new versions very very soon, according to Tricky Boucher (who has listened to all the feedback and wrapped in many new improvements). Join the Skin Addiction group to get the gossip!

My Name Is Red

I used the Omega Applier HUD to wear my great underwear, which was designed originally for PhatAzz. With a little swapping of scripts and the additional HUD for the Belleza body, I was in business. My gorgeous sexy shoes are Nardya Rousselot’s stilettos, which she has made for Slink or Belleza feet.

Shyla Diggs’ new Grace skin matches the body perfectly, of course, and completely fits because it’s as sexy as sexy gets. I wore one of the lipstick tattoos and added a whole lot of sexy in one click. Truth Hawks recently presented this new, sexy long hair with bangs, which flows down in straight but sexy locks.

Wicked Girl

It’s Halloween night and generally I wouldn’t have done this but Colton Denimore tp’d me to a party and I felt compelled to dress up for Halloween. This amazing outfit from Shai Delacroix is available at Uber. By day it can be a sweet little girl pinafore with pretty colors but by night it can turn evil with ghostly or bloody textures because of her awesome HUD system that controls the textures on the mesh AND shows you the texture change in the HUD (so clever).

Wicked Girl

My skin from Rocketta Haven is available at the Cosmetic Fair for just a few more hours and as usual, it’s unique, artistic, delicate. I love Rocketta’s vision. My eyes are a set from the new Enchantment round for Constance Daehlie. And I am showing Truth’s hair again in this post because it works so well!

Finally, Sway Dench has this wicked chair available with or without blood, with poses sitting up or without as I show it, as if someone has escaped with his life barely in tact….

Happy Halloween!

The Miller’s Daughter

The Miller’s Daughter

She spun gold from straw….

The Miller's Daugher

Enchantment opens on the first and as always, it is chock full of Grimm Brothers charm. The theme this round is “Rumplestilskin,” the story of a miller’s daughter who is commanded to spin gold from straw, who makes a deal with Rumplestiltskin and finds later she’s made a deal she can’t live with. The daughter in the story is, of course, comely, so this dress from Kiddo Oh makes all the sense in the world for this fairy tale. It’s beautifully rendered from mesh with a lovely floral pattern and a pretty lace decolletage. She has made matching chokers for the dress.

The fun part of Enchantment is, of course, the punchcards. You go to each store in the event and get your card punched and then take it to the special prize area to redeem for one of the many prizes. To get a card, you have to purchase simply one of the featured items. Cards are transferable if you want to give a gift to a friend.

The Miller's Daugher

The Body Modification Expo closes today but you can still sneak in and get this lovely skin from Sawsan Secretspy. With a sexy eyeliner and pretty lips, it’s a great deal. My hair is one of Truth’s newest with a bow with inexplicable spikes in it. (The hair with its bow was so darling I overlooked them.) My gorgeous eyes are Constance Daehlie’s, also featured for Enchantment.

She Who Would Be Queen

She Who Would Be Queen

Every woman is a queen, and we all have different things to offer. ~ Queen Latifah

She Who Would Be Queen

Put on a dress like this one from Wicca Merlin and suddenly you feel like a queen. It’s an elegant mesh template that she has made even better with gorgeous textures of netting on the body and black satiny ruffles. This is one of Wicca’s fashionable offerings for the BOSL International Fashion Week, which ends October 18. My gorgeous necklace and earrings are Maxi Gossamer’s at Fameshed, and they include a texture change script so you can choose one of six colors to match your outfit.

She Who Would Be Queen

My skin is Ivy Burner’s first attempt at selling a skin and I have to say, she has done a great job! With beautiful lips and beguiling eyes, the skin is plain enough to allow other makeups to be layered on, though I have not. She is offering this as her piece at the Body Modification Expo, and it’s a pleasant surprise. My hair is Truth Hawks’ voluminous exclusive for Mystic Realms Faire, and it comes with this crown, which has color change encompassed in the hair color HUD. It all makes me feel so royal!

While I photo’d and documented this blog entry, I listened to a mix of Bjork and PJ Harvey on YouTube so my look is a combination of the two (kind of like this amazing performance of “Satisfaction” by the pair). And speaking of amazing, this dress that Kinu Mayako has made for the Mystic Realms Faire is a strappy sexy look with a wonderful color change HUD for the straps on the top and the underlying part, the skirt and the arm cuffs. Then I paired it with a strappy set of platforms from Poulet Koenkamp that include a texture-change HUD as well. I will remark that these are Slink-compatible but fit the Belleza body feet just fine. My necklace is from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus and include 4 metals and 10 gems, available exclusively at the Body Modification Expo.

Isobel

My ‘do is one of Truth Hawks’ new fantasy hairs for the Mystic Realms Faire. With his great texture-change HUD, I was able to choose this great color combo. Sawsan Secretspy has released this lovely skin for Designer Showcase and I dressed it up with eye liner from Constance Daehlie and lips from Mocksoup Graves. I like when a skin is plain enough that a third party makeup works well on it. This is pretty seamless.
