I just got back from SLCC in San Francisco. Whew! What a great city San Francisco is, with its hills and beautiful vistas, open streets, friendly people, and casually cosmopolitan attitude.
The women are beautiful in San Francisco, but not in the self-conscious way I have found in other cities. Their beauty comes from their confidence—they are happy, healthy and free, open and friendly.There is a diversity of women—different sizes, races, classes, and orientations. There is home to all of them.
It’s also a home to great nightclubs and restaurants. Eshi and I had the distinct pleasure of enjoying dinner with DB Bailey and his wife Judith in North Beach. I had also been invited out by my friend Henri but left before I could see him. Henri’s well-versed in the ins and outs of night life in San Francisco. He’s got the city in the palm of his hand.
So when I saw the new sandals that Maitreya Gold just put out, I knew they would have been perfect for going out with Henri. With their broad strappy leather ties and wood soles (and look on the bottom—even the shoe size), these shoes would catch the eye of any man (or woman). And oh, the textures… the leather is so well textured I can feel its suppleness around my ankles. Purr…
This dress from Baiastice is a perfect accompaniment. Women in San Francisco are not ostentatious but they do like their fashion. Dresses there are hand made, well done, and high priced because they demand craftsmanship. Constricted tailoring (except in the notable BDSM clubs), fussiness and heaviness are not fashionable. This dress fills the bill with its casual but stylish neckline and skirt. Sissy’s work has improved dramatically over the year, from her choppy photosourced fashions to this well-envisioned and well-constructed couture.
Lamb Bellic is doing some great hair for .lamb. I really like the look of this ponytail—not too messy, not too sleek. And Abraxxa Anatine has raised the bar for jewelry in SL. I desperately want this gorgeous necklace, which would be easily found in any fashionable boutique in San Fran.
