Layla

Layla, you’ve got me on my knees.
Layla, I’m begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won’t you ease my worried mind.

~ “Layla” by Eric Clapton

Layla

I thought this great rocking song of desire was a perfect name for this sexy look, made better by fitted mesh. Start with this sexy dress that Kehl Razor hand crafted from mesh up to fit not only to standard sizes but also to match the rigging of the Belleza mesh body. Form fitting, sexy with lacing up the sides and a D-ring in front, this leather dress is just what you want mesh to do—bend to your will and fit to your bod. With sexy crossed mule platforms from Lindsey Warwick, also specially designed for the Belleza body’s feet, it’s a hot look.

Layla

I am, of course, wearing the Belleza body and with this dress, it was very easy to create this look. A few clicks of alphas and I was set. Shyla Diggs will be coming out with a new set of skins for the Uber event, and those skins perfectly match Tricky Boucher’s work on the mesh body, for obvious reason. With darkly rimmed eyes and a neutral lip, this makeup goes well with black leather. Truth Hawks has come out with a pair of sexy ponytails in mesh and I chose this wicked red to accompany my black look.

Sensitive Kind

Sensitive Kind

Don’t take her for granted, she has a hard time
Don’t misunderstand her or play with her mind
Treat her so gently, it will pay you in time
You’ve got to know she’s the sensitive kind
Tell her you love her, each and every night
And you will discover she will treat you right

~ “Sensitive Kind” by JJ Cale

Sensitive Kind

JJ Cale’s song is the first I had ever heard about sensitive women. I tend to shy away from that label. I am of Midwestern stoic stock. But the song is lovely and suited this gentle look I donned. Ariadna Garrigus has made a beautiful gown with a texture change HUD so you can have three distinctively different looks out. This one is lace and satin. The others are leather with studs and sparkling sequins. I liked this one the most with the lace bodice, the flowing skirt and the subtle colors. My complex necklace from Paco Pooley is one that he is offering at the Jewelry Fair that creates an elegant piece for this look.

Sensitive Kind

Truth Hawks recently released this gorgeous full ‘do with its loose curls and beautiful textures. It suits this dress so well. And Sawsan Secretspy has just released this gorgeous skin with its refined brows, makeup and sexy details. Perhaps our sensitive kind is worth the attention because she’s so beautiful.

True Blue

True Blue

True blue, your silent cry
And I can see it and I want to touch you
Please, cause no one sleeps
True blue is breaking the waves
I used to know all the gates of love
And all the love was streaming through you

~ “Eclipse Blue” by Nosaj Thing

True Blue

I put together this true blue outfit because I just loved all the elements and wanted to wear something that made me feel good. Start with this open-necked chambray blouse from Julliette Westerberg, who has a fine grasp of mesh rigging and clothing with great textures and fashion. Add my favorite jeans from Paul Lapointe that come with a texture-change HUD for the jeans and the belt. I ran over to Jewelry Fair and found that RealEvil was there with some fabulous mesh jewelry. The necklace I show has texture change for the metal and all three layers of feathers, so it’s versatile and really nicely made.

True Blue

I brought out this gorgeous skin from Inka Mexicola again. Gosh it’s beautiful. I LOVE the eye makeup, especially with this whole look. (The next blog I am going to be showing Inka’s skin with the Belleza body. Think it won’t work? It does!) My gorgeous ponytail is one of Truth Hawks’ newer ‘dos. I am true to blue, true blue.

Ruby Pearl

Ruby Pearl

Well, I’ve got a woman named a-Ruby Pearl
A be-boppin’ baby in a be-boppin’ world
She’s got the rhythm from her head to her feet
She knows at first every brand new beat
Ruby Pearl, hey, hey-hey, Ruby Pearl
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby Pearl

~ “Ruby Pearl” by Jackie Lee Cochran

Ruby Pearl

A be-boppin’ girl, our Ruby Pearl, with a great mesh dress from the just-opened Thrift Shop with all the great attributes of a rockabilly look. With a full mesh skirt (underlain with a cleverly-crafted alpha that includes lace at the edge), this dress with big blowsy roses is a lovely look from Blacknesslectra. To go from sweet to more rockabilly, I added a tattoo from Antonia Marat (still the best rockabilly I can find on the grid) and pearls and earrings from Plurabelle Laszlo, that will soon be featured at the Jewelry Fair. Finally, wicked stiletto shoes from Beanster Potato with a texture change HUD  for the little triangle insets allowed me to match my shoes to the look while having that edgy high heeled look that good rockabilly needs.

Ruby Pearl

Of course, the whole look was started because of this fabulous new style from Truth Hawks with the side rolls and long wavy locks. He made the hair in two versions so you get two for one in your box, but I preferred this look, especially with the fabulous skin that Sawsan Secretspy has made for the Unique Varied Event. She includes several lipsticks and eyeshadows and this wickedly great eyeliner with the skin. I wore the cleavage version with this dress because it makes sense. CarrieAnn Lemon’s great plain nail color set from the Thrift Shop completes my look.

“Grace in women has more effect than beauty.” ~ William Hazlitt

Grace

A beautiful look for the beautiful notion of “grace.” My dress is one of GraceHaddington’s newest, a beautiful joining of two mesh pieces to create a whole look . It comes with a texture-change HUD so you can choose between three color ways of the texture, and with the straps up the side and the leather inset, it skirts the border between pretty and sexy. I am wearing these strappy wedges from Lokii Violet at District 5, which also include a great texture-change HUD with a bunch of choices for the straps and the metal. The pretty bejeweled choker is one Maxi Gossamer made for a recent fair and I hope is now in her store. It includes color change for the larger and smaller gems for mix and match.

Grace

The ladies in Skin Addiction spent all day yesterday talking about this skin from Umazuma Metaluna. It’s a huge hit because of its beautiful features, freckled skin, full juicy lips and wonderful body. If any of this appeals at all, get over to Fantasy Collective and get it! My lovely braid is Truth Hawks’ newest hair and ideal for a lovely pulled back look. The braid is, of course, rigged so it moves wonderfully with the avatar and provides versatility for many looks.

Que Sera Sera

Que Sera Sera

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother
What will I be
Will I be pretty
Will I be rich
Here’s what she said to me

Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours to see
Que sera, sera
What will be, will be

~ “Que Sera Sera” performed by Corinne Bailey Rae

Que Sera Sera

I heard Corinne Bailey Rae singing this song as I was putting this outfit together and it seemed fitting. The look is blonde and cheerful, like the original spunky blonde who popularized the song, Doris Day. I start with the belted blouse and flirty skirt from Ivy Burner, which she is selling at District 5 in the Hamptons. A color change HUD for the top allowed me to choose the right belt color from six. My shoes are also available in the Hamptons, from Kenadeecole, also with a texture change HUD with a plethora of color choices. And my handbag is a darling piece from Iokko Molto, also from District 5.

Que Sera Sera

Truth Hawks has come out with this new lovely long ‘do with optional bangs in two versions with his great texture-change HUD and beautiful textures. It’s a perfect style for this outfit and of course, the tones go great with Shyla Diggs’ skin for the Arcade, a gorgeous example of the set of ten skins she will be offering for chance in a few days.

A Day Away

A Day Away

“Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.  Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.  Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.” ~ Maya Angelou

A Day Away

I live with a workaholic. At times I can be a workaholic. (Go figure.) A little dress down day for shopping or enjoying the weather or running errands is sometimes much needed—a time to decompress. I put together this look for such a day. Start with the blazer/top combo that Jesydream is offering at District 5. It’s casual yet tailored—not a grungy old sweatshirt—ideal for me. I’m not that kind of vacationing woman. My mesh skirt from Juliette Westerburg, which she has at Uber, is the piece to go with this look—sassy and short but not too flimsy. Brings the formalness of the blazer down. My high heels from Tatyana Ultsch, also at District 5, are fun slip-ons with a darling bow and great texture. Sunami Beck offers this luxe handbag at Uber and sunglasses from Jonas Acanthus are just the right accessory.

A Day Away

My full locks are pulled into a fishtail braid over my shoulder courtesy of Truth Hawks, who offers this great style in all his typical colors. My skin is Monicuzza Babenco’s gorgeous offer at The Dressing Room. I have not worn her skins as of late and was delighted to come back to one and find it fit so wonderfully to my shape. I have been showing a lot of Constance Daehlie’s eyes and makeup lately, if you hadn’t already picked up on that. I am really enjoying what she is doing with her work. Her colors are clear and crisp without cartoonishness.
