I made myself into a pretty angel for this post with Eilfie Sugarplum’s wings for Uber but mostly it was for Sands Leavitt’s darling look for Uber’s ethereal theme. I chose to wear his cute top with lace overlaying a tube top. It comes with a skirt but I chose Paul Lapointe’s sexier-than-hell leggings with the finest behind in SL. I clicked into this lighter purple shade to let that pretty booty show. I chose the purple/pink shades on the newest Glamistry boots to match to my hot leggings.

MissAllSunday Lemon  has created this gorgeous feathered hair for the Uber event, and I chose a beautiful ombre for my look. I added darling cherry blossom combs to my hair from Mohsin Paulino to match my necklace from Sigifaust. The best part of my look is Steffi Villota’s gorgeous skin for Tres Chic. I used her eye makeup from the HUD and then used Catwa’s lip tinting for my lips, both blended in. What a beautiful face Steffi has created for the Annie mesh head!

“I usually travel with a posse. I roll deep. I travel like a rapper, but without the artillery. We don’t carry guns, we carry cookies.” ~ Gabriel Iglesias

Rolling Deep

I had my posse with me at the Furillen sim. We rode into town and then parked ourselves by the Airstream Serene has put out (from Wavie Haller—one of my favorites that he made). These “cRaZy lOVe” KittyCats are the other Love Collection pets KittyCats is offering this season and they too include a special animation in them where they will rez you a blanket and special poses so you can enjoy them with a friend. We rode in on my cycle from Turluccor Mode, a brilliant piece that includes all sorts of fun stuff for riding (lights, engine, turbo) and a huge set of poses and animations for single and couples. And the bike is pretty cute with the purple tank.

The main part of my outfit is, of course, the rockin’ aviator leather jacket from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus. As always, Paul has created a solid piece with great style, perfectly fit to the Maitreya body (and others). Bast’s HUD gives a ton of options in colors and textures. I especially liked the tank add-on options with some awesome t-shirt graphics. The jacket, tank and bra come as a complete package with a kazillion options for colors—it’s a very fat fatpack. My short skinny jeans are one of LiuMiwa’s pieces for Shiny Shabby, rolled at the ankle and perfect with Glamistry’s latest bootie, which also includes a texture change HUD for a ton of options. Keon Xenda’s poses show a male model but they were PERFECT for this set of photos (truly—I just positioned myself on the bike).

Rolling Deep

Deesselle Destiny made this sexy skin for the Catwa heads and I chose to dress it up with lipstick from the Catwa HUD and eyeliner from demi Placebo to make this hot tough girl look. I also got to try out Deesselle’s eyelashes for the Catwa head. (Kind of fun just applying eyelashes and not having to fit them into place!) A pretty necklace from Ors Quan for Shiny Shabby is a perfect piece of bling for this neckline. I love this haircut from Dubled, which is a gacha at Shiny Shabby. Frankly, you should get all of them because the shortened bangs are darling and the windblown curls are perfect for a girl who just got off her bike.

Coeur de Parisienne

Coeur de Parisienne

Toute seule, hélas! je suis désormais
Et pourtant je croyais
Lire dans ses yeux qu’il m’aimait

~ “Coeur de Parisienne” by Rufus Wainwright

Couer de Parisienne

If you don’t think women in Paris wear high high heels, you are so wrong. I have been there twice and have seen women traipse through the cobblestone streets in the most death defying shoes imaginable. I have also seen them wearing fur coats over short dresses. This blog is entirely true. Kalopsia’s new Paris Je T’Aime region, absolutely gorgeously laid out and rendered, is the scene of my virtual Paris, and my love affair with the city has been renewed.

That being said, my cute little knit dress is one of Asia Rae’s newest, a smexy knit dress in great warm shades (I chose chocolate). Topping is a full fur coat from Cocoro Lemon for Shiny Shabby, an unabashed nod to luxury for this delicious city. Jewelry is a simple set from Monicuzza Babenco for The Dressing Room. And my shoes are a pair from Glamistry, completely impractical, completely sexy.

Couer de Parisienne

Sawsan Secretspy is out to please all her customers, so she makes appliers for mesh heads but she appreciates not everyone wants to own one. So she is still putting out beautiful system skins for the ladies who want variety in their look. My ponytail is Mina Nakamura’s for Hairology, which is opening today, giving long bangs to peek out from and a casual elegance for a walk through Paris.

How Far

How Far

“No matter how far you travel, you can never get away from yourself.” ~ Haruki Murakami

How Far

I took a trip down to Furillen in my traveling outfit, a set of comfortable and subtly sexy pieces from ValentinaEvangelista. The top is a fit-to-form body suit, perfectly made to the Maitreya body. She has matched it with low-slung trousers, barely held up with a belt, quite probably my boyfriend’s pants that I put on as I slipped out the door. With a great texture and wonderfully rendered folds, the pants fit a bit loosely. Thank goodness for the belt. I accessorized with a great tie from Kitt Ragu (I have wanted one like this for a long time!) I love how Kitt always sizes to men and women—it allows a lot of fashion flexibility! Darling oxfords from roscee that include a texture-change HUD so I could mess with colors to match up and a cute little travel case from Zen Zarco finishes me.

How Far

I resized Johnfrancis Laville’s porkpie hat to fit. If you ever check out his store, the man is SL’s milliner for guys, with a variety of amazing mesh hats to complete any look, and most include a resize script. My lovely locks are JourdanMcMillan’s contribution to Hairology this month, and I chose her lightest blond with roots. I spent some time deciding what brow color to choose from Deesselle Destiny’s lovely Catwa applier skin. With freckles scattered over the cheeks, a thick defined brow and a pretty nose, I accentuated my eyes with liner on the applier and slicked on a red lip from Catwa’s HUD. Finally, thanks Senna, for making me find the look!

The Afternoon Knows

The Afternoon Knows

The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected.” ~ Jonathan Grimwood

The Afternoon Knows

I took a walk at Flux Sur Mer on sunny afternoon (thanks to windlight, which I see left some shadows on my skins from the trees) and enjoyed the beauty of the sim and idle shopping. I wore one of Hilly Haalan’s new dresses, a cute mini that comes with a great texture-change HUD to allow mix and match between the top, skirt, belt and tie. It’s a fabulous dress, very versatile and sexy in a cute way. I wore my new necklace from Crashnoww at Seasons Story, a bargain with a texture change HUD for the gems in the necklace and pendant. A darling handbag from Natzuka Miliandrovic carries all my essentials (theoretically) and darling patent leather pumps fit for Slink or Maitreya from Saki Galiazzo that include a HUD that allows me to custom color three different sections of the pumps. They fit perfectly!

The Afternoon Knows

I am wearing one of Thora Charron’s new Swish hairs with an animated lock that moves as if a soft breeze is blowing. Mr. Beresford noticed it and thought it was done very nicely and naturally. (And you know, men don’t notice anything.) I have been experimenting with the GA:EG Adriana Mesh Head. It is Omega compatible, so I pulled out the applier Mallory Cowen created for the Logo mesh head as an Omega applier. I found that Mallory’s skin applied to this head beautifully and will please those who always loved the LAQ look. Then I pulled out the Add-Ons for the mesh head and installed them, which was lickety split. Wear the Add-on applier, click and it installs into the HUD. They have provided a variety of different add-ons including lashes, brows, liners, shadows and lipsticks. I used the lash applier, one of the eyeshadows and one of the lipsticks. Once installed they do come with options like translucency so I was able to make the pink lipstick more translucent so it blended with the LAQ skin nicely (since the lipstick is not quite the same shape as the skin lips).

To Seduce

To Seduce

It is not enough to conquer; one must learn to seduce. ~ Voltaire

To Seduce

I am guessing that Voltaire was suggesting in his quote something more about winning the hearts and minds of the populace but I think the suggested double meaning has great play for this set of photos, which I took at Corruption. (Thank you again for selling group membership to allow rezzing.)

To Seduce

Mariska Simon’s new lingerie is based on appliers, and Mariska has done a wonderful job of lining up seams and making the translation of image to seduction magic. I have tried on several lingerie appliers that have bad seams or simply don’t wow me, but Mariska’s is top notch from the straps to garter straps. And she attends to all the details, which is part of any good seduction, including the styling. The balconette bra barely gives a glimpse of the nipples and has an intriguing lace racer back. Platform show girl shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo, which she is featuring at On9, and Maxi Gossamer’s dreamy drop of pearls and starburst earrings and ring for Collabor88 complete my look.

To Seduce

Sawsan Secretspy has recently release a slew of new skins for events and this lovely look is her featured item for Black Dot. It’s simply a Catwa applier without makeups included, but I took advantage of the lipstick colors Catwa includes in the HUD to tint up my lips. (The liner comes with the skin.) Bubbles Clawtooth’s lovely long locks for Collabor88 finishes my look with their elegant volume and her gorgeous textures.
