I Run Roulette

I Run Roulette

I’ve been tricked into a thousand different ways
To slide myself away right down the drain
That was all within in a day
Not so sure no more
Not so sure no more
Say this is heaven in a bombshell blonde who’s got the devil’s legs

Maybe you should be the one that I forget
Baby, I could be the one that you regret
My cassette don’t play these songs, I run roulette
If you don’t know, keeping it close
If you don’t go, I might run, I run roulette

~ “I Run Roulette” by Boots

I Run Roulette

I totally love this new song so I made a look of “a bombshell blonde who has the devil’s legs.” My dress is a great new piece from LeEnfantTerrible for Shiny Shabby, a great mesh piece that is a brocade with a subtly striped overlay. I love how the beads decorate the decolletage and the hem with a great subtle mix of taupe and light blue and gray. I pulled out some jewelry from Maxi Gossamer, sparkly nail appliers from Constance Daehlie, and wear the stringy strapped sandals Senzati0n Domenitzo is selling at Whore Couture to complete my look.

I Run Roulette

NatalieWells is selling this gorgeous skin at Skin Fair with Slink hand and feet appliers that come with it and different sets of lip colors to enhance the skins. I wil say I am disappointed she doesn’t have mesh body appliers. I have gotten spoiled with the beautiful lines a mesh body can provide, especially seeing myself without one for these photos. Her faces are so lovely, I hope she comes to do the appliers soon.

My fabulous hair is a new one from Kavar Cleanslate, tied to the side and flowing down with his great textures. I couldn’t help but go blonde because it matched the lyrics and looked so fab with the skin and dress.

Spring Fever

Spring Fever

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” ~ Mark Twain

Spring Fever

It’s certifiably spring and I have a bounce in my step and flight in my wings. Mami Jewell just came out with this gorgeous dress, made for the MVW 2nd Runner-Up, Issy Flatley. I had to try on the cover dress in Coral because it was just so lovely, especially the way Mami combined mesh and flexi pieces to create a beautiful ruffled confection of a dress with movement and curviness.

Spring Fever

I took my shots at the Un Jour sim that Siestabril Nitely built. With little outposts of flowered islands, some set with posed props, I had some fun taking photos in this beautiful dress. I purchased a head piece from Siestabril to suit the environment and spent some time happily snapping away.

Spring Fever

Of course, the core of my luminescent look comes from Stasey Oller’s gorgeous skin for the Skin Fair. I was always used to her very bold and glossy lipsticks at many events but she has turned that glossiness to a subtle beauty in this set of skins that are sexy and innocent at once with a lovely glow. Stasey offers a ton of appliers with a beautifully detailed body. And thank goodness Mina Nakamura is offering this updo with a essentials color set because the blond matched the skin perfectly and with its romantic tendrils, added the final touch.

Irish Spring

St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time – a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.  ~ Adrienne Cook

Irish Spring

My kid’s birthday is tomorrow on St. Patricks’ Day. I never thought very hard about the significance of this until he got older and I realized his birthday was always the cross from winter into spring. After his birthday, it was bound to never snow and never get below zero. I am counting on him to hold open the door to spring again.

I am looking forward to the daffodils and narcissus blooming, so I carry one from Taiko McCaw from her gacha at Luck of the Irish. I dressed accordingly in a green dress from Azure Electricteeth from Collabor88, one that is off the shoulder so I can show off my beautiful claddagh set from Abraxxa Anatine. She has put scripts in the jewelry so you can choose from a number of stones and gold or silver, of course, allowing you to avoid yet another HUD. The set includes a necklace, earrings and ring and there is a necklace available for gentlemen as well. My cute little shoes are VaVaVaVixen’s flats at Luck of the Irish.

Irish Spring

I feel fresh and beautiful in Nicole Button’s amazing new skin for Skin Fair. Her skins are all hand-drawn and so amazingly detailed and lovely with gorgeous features. This skin, in particular, has pretty bow-shaped lips that have an exquisite outline to accent their prettiness and the luster so indicative of Nicole’s work. The skins come with appliers for just about anything you can think of, including the Eve body. It looks fantastic on the Maitreya body, as you can see. Bubbles Clawtooth is in this round of Kustom 9 and she is offering two casual and pretty styles this month, ideal for dress up or every-day casual.

Fashionista Harper Beresford
Blogs what all this great hair is for.
She went shopping to satisfy her muse
and came home with a shitload of shoes.

~ Me

The Clerihew

I subscribe to A.Word.A.Day, and this week they are featuring light poetry words. One of the words was “clerihew.”

PRONUNCIATION:

(KLER-uh-hyoo)

MEANING:

noun: A humorous, pseudo-biographical verse of four lines of uneven length, with the rhyming scheme AABB, and the first line containing the name of the subject.

Of course, I had to take my turn at it, which you see above.

I satisfied my fashionista instinct this blog post with a darling little dress from Beanster Potato that comes with her fantastic texture-change HUD that allows different top colors, all for one low price. My shoes from Kim Lysette have the same fantastic option as does my necklace from Bastchild Lotus. Even my little lunchbox from Moonbubble Gothly’s gacha at Luck of the Irish has a HUD! (And I show several versions on this blog for kicks.)

The Clerihew

Shylah Honey made waves on waves for the new Liaison Collaborative, the theme of which is Bon Voyage. I think she was trying to channel Rose with the casual elegance of these locks. (The back is just as pretty with waves tumbling down.)

Skin Fair is going on and Systi Cisse is offering two skins, one of which is this one that I wear without a mesh body but with Slink hands and feet. The face itself has a very clean gentle palette so I played with the lipstick and eyeshadow included with the skin, having a bit of fun in the process and created a lovely look, especially with Soleil Reid’s eyes from The Men’s Dept.

Poor Dear Silly Spring

Poor Dear Silly Spring

Poor, dear, silly Spring, preparing her annual surprise! ~Wallace Stevens

Poor Dear Silly Spring

It’s coming! It’s coming! The sun is out, the snow is melting, the world is puddle wonderful! I admit I was starting to doubt with the many inches of snow, the never-ending unrelenting cold, and the fact that a groundhog bit the mayor of a town in my state. I know I am overdoing it with the flowers here, but spring is coming and I can’t wait!

TheAnnex is offering this lovely dress among others in their gacha at The Luck of the Irish Gacha that Depraved Nation is holding. There are a kazillion gachas full of all sorts of awesome stuff like this, so bring lots of change. My shoes are HauteCoutureDesign’s original mesh set, and they come with a HUD with six wonderful springtime colors with a darling t-strap design and a wedge heel.

I outfitted my parcel with this great gazebo from Winter Thorn, which also comes with a beautiful cozy fireplace, though I opted to use the more open one so I could take in the promise of spring in the air. I dropped in minor decorations from Sway Dench and a hanging mobile I picked up at Origami by gin Fhang.

Poor Dear Silly Spring

Skin Fair opened at midnight and the sims were INSTANTLY jam packed. (Find all the details here.) You can find this gorgeous skin from Hart Larsson on Sim 1. As usual, he decorates the skin with a cateye liner and lovely lips and features, all hand-drawn and refined. And since Hart is a programmer himself, he managed to unlock every kind of major applier, including that for the Belleza body, so you can rest assured you are PXL top to bottom. My hair is one of Thora Charron’s newest, a lovely romantic look with a twisted lock that pulls to the back and beautiful waves, all with her clever texture-change HUD. And a branch of blossoms from Siestabril Nitely, also from Origami, completes the look and brings spring, finally, to my blog!

Irish Eyes

You can’t kiss an Irish girl unexpectedly. You can only kiss her sooner than she thought you would. ~ Irish saying

Irish Eyes

I thought my pretty girl today should be tagged an “Irish lass,” mostly because of the green of her dress and the season. Mami Jewell just released this beautiful gown, a mix of mesh and sculpty and flexi prim, employing the best of each. The main gown is a perfect corseted bodice over a long skirt with a nicely made skirt, all in mesh. Then Mami pumps it up with a few great optional attachments, like the rose-crowned translucent train that floats around the body. The movement of those pieces makes all the difference and it’s hard to notice they are flexi prims (beyond their movement) because Mami has so skillfully built and textured them. I complimented the look with AvaGardner Kungler’s beautiful necklace for the Instruments.

Irish Eyes

Skin Fair opens very soon, kids, and June Salmson has worked her heart out on two new skins to be shown there. I am wearing Jessica, which comes with appliers for everything you would ever need them, including the Maitreya body, which I am wearing. I added June’s pretty beauty mark to the look and enjoyed the simple elegance of her skin. My hair is Shylah Honey’s gacha item for The Luck of the Irish. The bonus to this hair is that it comes with a detachable spray of hair that makes this either a lovely long look, cinched in back or a bun. And the bun is the best feature. It’s a Celtic knot, perfect for your Irish lass look or frankly, any look you want to make elegant.

“The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.” ~  Yves Saint-Laurent

In the Flesh

Psst… guess what’s coming soon. Skin Fair! Yep. So you’re gonna see a lot more of me “in the flesh,” as it were as I show off the fine aspects of the different skins being offered. Ergo, lingerie is in order, and Mariska Simons has come out with this fabulous and sexy little turquoise set, all on appliers in the many pieces you might want including garters, exposed demi bra, stockings, panties, thong. Appliers are included for every major mesh body part you need.

Maxi Gossamer has issued a romantic necklace and earrings for Collabor88, a secret love letter in a locket. I wonder who it’s from? I snuggled up in the bed that Cory Edo made for Fameshed, one of her fantastic pieces that includes seemingly a bazillion texture change options and poses. I rolled around in the soft texture-change sheets and loved every minute of it!

In the Flesh

The news is, of course, skins, and I start with this fantastic skin from Toxxic Rhiannyr. I tripped across her store and I was excited to see a new-to-me skin maker with some fantastic work put into her skins. The thing I hear most from the Skinnies (as we call the folks in the Skin Addiction chat) is that the devil’s in the details, and Toxxic has taken care of those details. It shows on the body applier, on the hands, on the navel, breasts, and arms and legs—places where people often neglect to do the hard work to make the skin look good. And Toxxic’s face is sublime with well-place features and a lovely glow and beautiful, soft lips. I think I will be checking out more for Toxxic’s work in the future. This is a definite “find” at the Skin Fair this year.

I don’t want to wrap up without mentioning Constance Daehlie’s gorgeous eyes for Skin Fair, crystalline with tiny pupils and a very realistic reflection. My nails are also from Constance, these at Anybody, a gorgeous lacy pattern that offers a variety of looks. My big bright blue eyes go so beautifully with Truth Hawks’ new hair in blonde, a casual sexy cut that, as always, has his fabulous textures.
