Boots and boys
They bring me so much joy

Boots and Boys

Cowboy boots, cowboy boys….

Someone once asked my process for doing a blog and I explained that I start with an inspiration. This time I found inspiration in the boots from Morphine Janick. With a terrific little hud that allows you to change four different parts of the boots to four different textures, these mesh boots are fun and funky.

Boots and Boys

Then I built the outfit from there. My friend, Barely, ran around with me early the other morning (after we both woke up inexplicably at the crack of dawn), to find a look that would go with this. I finally found this funky dress from Dolce Blackflag on the MP, and dressed it up with socks from Datrip Blackbart, who can always be counted on to bring something offbeat to the look.

Boots and Boys

Then I started working my way up with a great skin from Tricky Boucher and deep dark brown eyes (my FAVORITE brown eyes in SL) from Ikon Innovia. A new ‘do from Carina Larsen in a beautiful bright copper balances out the coloring of the whole look.

Boots and Boys

Topped with Jamie Holmer’s beautiful sculpty hat with its worn leather textures and an ornate necklace from Danielle Astonia, it’s no wonder I have no problem finding boys with my boots.

I feel like I took a little trip to Chinatown because I found some great things!


Check out this darling mesh top from Sissy Pessoa that I found at the Dressing Room. With darling frog closures and a pretty silky texture, this bargain was a great find to go with these mesh pants from Betty Doyle. Add the cute little takeout box from Guu Nishi and metallic flats from Karrie Kweller (both amazing deals) and the jewelry set from Dita Tran, and I have a cute look on the cheap.


My pretty skin is Tricky Boucher’s newest with red eyebrows and pretty green shadow. My bleached green eyes come courtesy of Ikon Innovia and my darling pigtails from MissAllSunday Lemon make the whole look whimsical.

The Spy Who Loved Me

The Spy Who Loved Me

Nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, you’re the best

It’s raining….

Have you seen BlaiseJoshua Resident’s blog, Every Second Man? I discovered Blaise when he tp’d into the Menstuff lounge, a pretty good-looking newbie I must say, especially for a man. Blaise entered SL and took to it like a fish to water. We friended and then he told me he was going to do a men’s blog, and I have to say, I was not encouraging and I regret that because he has more than exceeded my expectations and has pulled out a few innovative tricks I had never thought of (damn it). I will say, “Nobody does it better….”

The Spy Who Loved Me

Blaise and I kept talking about blogging together, so I finally roped him into doing this one with me. I wanted a romantic blog about two people in love in the rain, about melancholy and love. (Actually, I wanted an excuse to show off this fantastic new trench coat from Bonadea Avedon and these sexy, texture-change boots from Elisabetta Hyun. Come on—it’s really all about the look, right?)

The Spy Who Loved Me

Blaise, being Blaise, insisted we somehow work a gun into the story line. It’s a boy thing—guns—he explained. Whatever.

Don’t forget I was his “corpse” for a blog he did about a detective. He wrote as his caption, “’Harper,’ I whispered. ‘You old dog. I guess you had this coming for a long time.'” It didn’t have it coming to me.. ok maybe I did. What really ticked me off is that he called me old! So I got a bit of revenge in my machinima (watch above).

Let's Go Out Tonight

I took Blunt out dancing so I could video us (please watch it—I worked hard on it). He walked off and ate chips or something while I focused my camera on us. I wanted to document this beautiful dress from Monica Outlander that I found in my inventory while I was at her sale. I saw it on the wall, thought I would buy it and yes, conveniently discovered I already had it. Its swirls on bodice and skirt give movement to this dress and make the long silhouette velvety and sexy.

Let's Go Out Tonight

Tricky Boucher’s new Shlya skin is seductive and beautiful. I have worn the red brows with it. I had to switch to a more copper hair tone to match the brow, and I found the right color in Kavar Cleanslate’s Sunset. Mesmerizing eyes from Ikon Innovia pop with this makeup and coloring. I wanted to point out the lovely choker and bracelet from Noah Bodenhall, which dressed up my look to the nth degree.

She Moved in Circles

She Moved in Circles

(She moved in circles, and those circles moved.)

~ Theodore Roethke, “I Knew a Woman”

Strap on a pair of roller skates and SL becomes even more fun than you’re used to. I wore these while skating around the Templemore of DreamSeeker sim and enjoyed the wide open streets and scenery. My skates are from Tya Fallingbridge, who makes them in black and white (presumably for boys and girls but I wore the black so it matched my ensemble). An AO from Sine Wave and I was a skating maniac.

She Moved in Circles

My jacket is one of the pieces on sale (yes SALE) at LeeZu Baxter’s right now. With circles in the back placket, the mesh moves great with my skating tricks. Leggings are from Bax Coen, who has come out with a set of stockings and leggings, including this mod circled look.

She Moved in Circles

My glowing skin with sexy cat eyes and luscious full lips comes from Tricky Boucher. The new Shyla is a beautiful set of skins from one of the masters of skin making in SL. Eyes are from Ikon Innovia, who is also having a SALE. My hair, with its sexy dark roots (and yes, sometimes I find that sexy—when it’s done right) is a bottle blonde from Kavar Cleanslate. Looks like our girl needs a touch-up on her roots soon.

One quick comment: my quotes come from one of my very favorite love poems by Theodore Roethke. Find it, read it, enjoy it.

Hurricane Judy

Hurricane Judy

This hurricane Judy is a brave new world ~ “Hurricane Judy” by Future Clouds and Radar

It started with a ping from Joel Foner about Tavi Gevinson—did I know of her, had I seen her? Why, yes, Joel, I blogged about her twice. He sent me to see a clip of her on Jimmy Fallon (teaching him “Bitchface”), which lead me to her book Rookie Yearbook One, which lead me back to Rookie Magazine, which lead me to Style Rookies, a little snippet about RL girls showing off their style, and I was off….

Hurricane Judy

Damn those girls were cute and daring and reminded me so much of my forays into fashion when I was in high school. (Needless to say, I didn’t quite do Express and the Gap.) I thought I would do it again—crazy, free, untethered by adult rules.

First it was the quilted jacket from Nalena Fairey that set this off. Then funky plaid pants from Maya Levane and socks, oh socks, also from Maya Levane. I remembered those loafers from Eponymous Trenchmouth—practical and cool, a necklace from Noah Bodenhall (who somehow got through my Facebook noise to contact me), and oh yes, glasses from Antonia Marat.

Hurricane Judy

And oh the brand new skin from Rosemary Galbraith with its peachy tones and freckles—so winsome, my hazel eyes from Ikon Innovia and then, oh yes, brand new hair from Chiaki Xue. It all spun up and then oh, yes, the video. The choppy, low fps video that nonetheless I captured (I am a newbie, dammit). And this hurricane Judy, she was a brave new world ;)

All There in Black and White

All There in Black and White

“My philosophy, like color television, is all there in black and white” ~ Monty Python

All There in Black and White

Life would be so much easier if clothes were just black and white. Just match the black—to the white—and you’re done! (Like Garanimals—if you remember those.) I saw this new outfit from Kimmera Madison, available in three beautiful prints. Clearly Kimmera has been working the PS hard because these are gorgeous dresses—I love the colored ones but they defy my new take on dressing only in black and white to make things easy, so I chose this graphic beauty for the blog. New silver shoes from Nardya Rousselot and a black updo from Truth Hawks make the monochromatic matching complete.

All There in Black and White

There are a few touches of life to this look, courtesy of my skin and jewelry. First, I found my beautiful haunted visage from Monicuzza Babenco. The eyes she presents are so lifelike with such a subtly beautiful skin that the look is dramatic and gorgeous without being pretentious. Monicuzza gets that overdoing it would make this skin infinitely less palatable.

My lovely jewelry is a new set from AvaGardner Kungler, using once again her wonderful thoughtfulness in constructing the pieces. Her textures are so beautiful and artistic, that the spirit of the piece comes out, making it almost touchable. I can see the patina on the metal, the clouding on the antique glass. Gorgeous!

Darlin Be Home Soon

Darlin Be Home Soon

And talk of all the things we did today
And laugh about our funny little ways
While we have a few minutes to breathe
Then I know that it’s time you must leave
But darling be home soon
I couldn’t bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling be home soon

~ “Darlin’ Be Home Soon” by The Lovin’ Spoonful, as done by Tedeschi Trucks Band

Darlin Be Home Soon

Every time Barnesworth Anubis comes up with a new skybox, I end up picking everything up and moving. It seems Barnesworth has me moving to New Orleans in this skybox with its great view of Bourbon street and interior features such as a slowly rotating fan, large French doors and a cozy fireplace with built in bookcases.

During Mardi Gras, I will be out on that balcony, flashing for beads. (Heck, it’s SL. I have great boobs here!) Today I just dropped the boxes on the ground, sat down on my new sofa from Pandora Popstar and hoped someone would get home soon to help me. I put on a snug robe and relaxed, assessing my space. Of course, Bonadea Avedon made this cozy mesh robe, so I could walk around my new home feeling thoroughly snuggled.

Darlin Be Home Soon

I cammed around from my perch on the sofa and started plunking stuff down. I rezzed out a feather chandelier and wall hanging from Cherelle Capra and found the vases also by her, which I will find a place for once I figure out what I will be putting out. (These great pieces are free in the Four Walls Hunt!) Did you notice the huge closet Barnesworth put in this skybox? He must know a woman with an inventory as extensive as mine would be moving in!

Darlin Be Home Soon

I put on a pretty skin from Moon Meiyo with luscious lips and a soft blush. No need to get all made up for moving in. My messy bedhead comes courtesy of Chiaki Xue and my spectacular eyes are from Ikon Innovia’s latest release of kaleidoscopic eyes.

Sweater Girl

“I’m a super hero, too, underneath my sweater.” ~ Rusted Root

Sweater Girl

The sweater girl used to be the one who wore a tight sweater and showed off her assets, but this sweater girl has put one on because there is a touch of fall in the air. This terrific mesh sweater with blouse from Julliette Westerburg is available in several colors, with or without the blouse, at the new Collabor88 on their new sim. I love how Julliette has shown the drape of the sweater and has fashioned a mesh piece that is not frumpy (like all those dang sculpties that everyone was putting around their waist, looking like they were hiding a pregnancy). I don it over a demin mini from Sachi Vixen that stands the test of time.

My boots are mesh goodness from LeeZu Baxter, who can always be counted on for a slightly different look. In recommending LeeZu to a friend, she said, “Oh, no. That’s too fancy.” You’re so wrong there. LeeZu does casual, a notch above the rest with a twist of couture—enough for a woman like me to appreciate. It’s thoughtful and chic.

Sweater Girl

My skin is one of Tricky Boucher’s newest with his signature sophistication and sensuality. As always, the face is finely balanced between eyes, lips and cheeks, eyebrows well-defined and beautifully drawn, mouth sexy but not over-the-top, skin tone ideal. There is a reason Tricky still sits on top of the skin market. My hair is one of Truth Hawks’ newest mesh pieces, drawn to the side and fitting perfectly with this casual look. A pair of glasses from Laika Saintlouis gives the look a touch of preppiness.

Happiness in the Smallest Gifts–Mega Sized

Endless Summer

Happiness in life is not just celebrating the big moments but in finding joy in the smallest gifts….

Endless Summer

Welcome to my mega-entry about the Finding FabFree Fifth Anniversary Hunt. I have tried to jam pack as much Finding FabFree in this blog as humanly possible without losing my mind, constrained as I am by my graphics card and the new Firestorm and my unbearable inventory.

Let me explain first that while I am not always the biggest hunter or freebie grabber, I am a huge supporter of FabFree and Renee Lowenhart’s efforts with the group. Started by Cherlindrea Lamont, the group was taken over by Renee Lowenhart several years ago and she has built the Fabulously Free in SL group up to well over 25,000 members with a blog that gets about 8000 hits a day (I peeked at the stats once when I was given posting rights—I nearly died). In celebration of five years of existence on the grid, Renee organized a hunt of 131 participants, each giving away the best in gifts to group members. And because everyone loves FabFree and Renee, the gifts are darn good!

Endless Summer

You can be living in the lap of luxury with this great two-level modern skybox from Cherelle Capra. I was able to landscape my yard with autumn trees and a bench from 2WAT Michigan. The bench comes with a dozen poses for my ennui and angst while I open even more gifts from the hunt.

One of the best gifts was this darling dress from Bela Tolsen. I took it out and went, “FREE? No way!” It’s mesh goodness with a chic print. Then I opened the package from Tash Porthos and gasped. She gives FOUR pairs of mesh pumps in different colors. Four! It’s more like a bonanza than a gift!

Endless Summer

Then there was this patio set from Bonadea Avedon. With two bottles of wine and two chairs, it’s perfect for sharing a few drinks with a pal and keeping out of the windlight sun (causes wrinkles).

Heather Beebe made a set of skins for this hunt that have drawn-in piercings and shimmery makeup in a variety of tones for everyone. And Jon Ree gives you another awesome multi-gift with three sets of earrings in different colors, a pair of which I show.

Endless Summer

There is the abundance of furniture given, like this sofa from Tattoodiva Jules with its loungy animation and great coffee table. RFB Morpork gives you this beautiful dress with colors shimmering and fading through it, a quality piece that would cost you hundred normally. And again, you see another pair of those fantastic shoes from Tash Porthos.

Endless Summer

Kira Paderborn, one of the most generous skin makers in SL, offers this vibrantly made up skin in the hunt with freckles and without. And Chiana Meredith gives you this shaggy cut with a HUD that allows you to change to four different tones—black, brunette, red or blonde. The gift also has a men’s hair so bring your male friend or avatar along to grab the gift.

Endless Summer

If you are feeling kind of animal, pop on the neko ears from Callie Cline, plop a KittyCat on your shoulder and hug this darling hedgehog from Aiko Ying. And plop your tired butt down on this great little sofa from Bethesa Hancroft that has poses for two avatars and solo lounges plus a nice little side table with tea.

I slipped on this lacy mini from Devil Demone and put on cute purple ankle boots from Renee Harvy, who always gives a lot to FabFree and other endeavors with her free or inexpensive creations.

Endless Summer

Finally this great skin from SophiaCarolina Ohmai with its funky lipstick would be great for your other-creature creations. And Tabata Jewell gives the perfect hair to compliment Callie’s ears—white with light blue streaks—enough to make a pretty neko to match a sweet KittyCat.

I want to make a quick note that I have complimented all these views with Ikon Innovia’s eyes, and two are of his newest available with kaleidoscopic fractals and ingeniously colored and lit by Ikon. They are not in the hunt but Ikon does have his group gifts out this weekend featuring this fractal design. Get them now!

Endless Summer

In closing, I can not emphasize enough how much work Renee and her crew put into this endeavor. Of any organizer in SL, she is the most dedicated, the most professional, the most kind-hearted and the most organized. Each and every designer who announces in FabFree is vetted for their legitimacy as a creator, for the originality and quality of their work, and for their generosity, and sometimes Renee has to review 50 applications in a couple days to keep up with the applications.

Renee and her moderators keep an eye on the group chat, the announcements, the blog, and the general spirit of the group. Every day Renee is faced with one or another executive decision, from members who are asking questions to designers who need assistance to bloggers who need direction about what to blog while she herself is seeking out gifts to show and blogging them. And she does this all while working full-time and taking care of family members in RL. And she doesn’t make a single penny of this.

This five-year anniversary is really a tribute to Renee’s leadership skills and the wonderful and amazing service of her assistants, moderators, bloggers and organizers. It’s a huge contribution to the SL community. Thank you.

Congratulations, Fab Free! Here’s to five more!
