Come and Gone

Come and Gone

Just as we lose hope
she ambles in,
a late guest
dragging her hem
of wildflowers,
her torn
veil of mist,
of light rain,
blowing
her dandelion
breath
in our ears;
and we forgive her,
turning from
chilly winter
ways,
we throw off
our faithful
sweaters
and open
our arms.

Come and Gone

I might get warm here finally. We are suffering the last few days of spring with rain and 55 but the flowers are planted and seem to be thriving. The Meyer lemon plant Eshi gave me for my birthday is blooming. (OMG, BEST smelling blossoms EVER.) My bike is out and about. Spring has finally come!

In celebration, I am wearing a look that is not promoting anything really except I like it. Hadarah Steamer has a great little store with mesh and jewelry, mostly RP-related items, but her textures and pieces are excellent and everything is very inexpensive. I loved this green dress, especially with the gorgeous belt and arm cuffs that come with it. This is chic, no matter where you go! Anemysk Karu is offering these gorgeous heels at Fashion for Life. (See? I slipping something in!)

Come and Gone

Queue Marlowe brought out this great up-do a couple weeks ago and I love how she piles it on. Queue, who has never been one who fears abundance, gives us curls on curls, with her distinctive curl textures with great high and low lights. Matched with one of Umazuma Metaluna’s distinctively gorgeous skins and new mesh eyes from Jale Jules (which seem to show lighter in my windlight), it’s a look to pass from Spring to Summer.

Everything Must Go

Everything Must Go!

Everything must go on every floor
Markdowns you’ve never seen before
Everything that isn’t bolted down is up on the block and open for offer
We need to travel light on this journey
And we won’t need all these things where we’re going

Everything Must Go!

Fashion for Life is on and EVERYTHING MUST GO! Get down there NOW for great fashions and skins and jewelry and shoes and hair! Not sure the hard sell is going to work but let me try a little soft sell with this gorgeous outfit from Dainie Fraina. I have been a too-secret fan of Dainie’s—I really love her clothing, which is tinged with African and in this case, Indian influences. Her HUD is easy to use for texture change on this outfit and allows separate changes to the top, skirt and hair flower. I love the beat of the djemba every time a change is made. A portion of every sale is donated to Relay for Life.

Freya Olivieri is one of the sim sponsors and she has always been a strong supporter of Fashion for Life. She is offering several pieces with 50% donation to the American Cancer Society on top of her generous donation to be a sim sponsor. The gorgeous earrings I wear are just the tip of the iceberg as far as the beautiful pieces Freya is offering, and her pieces are top notch, from the design of the mesh to the textures to interface and scripts.

Everything Must Go!

I wimped out and put on one of my favorite newer skins, Ria, from Shyla Diggs. I just dig Shyla’s makeups and the way it fits my shape. Belleza skins never seem to go out of style. My hair is Queue Marlowe’s very newest, a flexi ponytail on a mesh head piece. And of course, it comes with Queue’s handy texture change HUD and great textures!

Everything Must Go!

And who knows what bounties wait where we’re going….
