One of my favorite clubs in SL also seems to have one of the cheesiest names, so let’s just call it Teqi’s Sunrise and leave it at that for purposes of this blog. Teqi Falta, owner of one of the hottest sex clubs in SL, made this side club to feature Latin music and dancing and it’s really a kick, a great immersion into a sultry club with perfect dances and music.

I wore this dress perfect for clubbing from MoonCelestia for the Mesh Body Addicts. It fits to a T, as you can see, and comes with a great HUD for color change. Materials in the dress reflect the lights in Teqi’s club in a fabulous way. (Those same lights give lots of ambiance to the club but make it a stinker to photo there.) I found a cute wraparound bracelet from Sae Luan on MP to add a little gold to my look. I paired Senzati0n Domenitzo’s mules for Shiny Shabby’s next round (opens today).

Skin Fair is still on and they have removed those pesky script monitors so if you want to shop without worrying about that, go now. There are scads of amazing skins, including this applier set from Monicuzza Babenco, which gave my avatar a beautiful Filipina look, I think. Long straight hair with bangs from Ikira Frimon creates an elegance to my club look, especially since it comes with a wide variety of textures.

“I adore fringe.” ~ Diana Vreeland

Fringe Benefits

Fringe! I love it too! Djod Karu has made a very fashionable mesh outfit for Shiny Shabby that includes a fringe skirt over a mesh body suit and a jacket draped over the shoulders. I love that the fringe is irregular, which makes it seem like it has movement, better than many that would just use a transparent texture between the fringes. The jacket is rich and subtlety shadowed with light bouncing off the sequins. It’s just a great use of texture on mesh pieces. Senzati0n Domenitzo is offering these great braided sandals at Shiny Shabby as well. They were an ideal match for this look.

Ensorcelante is offering a new skin at Shiny Shabby. Ensorcelante has created a multiHUD for use on several different mesh heads, including the LeLutka mesh heads, and I think it’s fabulous in that incarnation. Unfortunately, unlike other appliers, there are no makeup options offered—WYSIWYG so I tinted the lip a little with a pink makeup built into the head to tone down the brown lip color. With the great long full hair from Ikira Frimon, the whole look is fashionable and gorgeous.

Whatever Is Whatever

Thank you, Breezy Luik, for the title! Quite apropos!

Whatever Is Whatever

It’s one of those weeks. Dashing back and forth, here and there. Half the time I don’t know if I am coming or going. The darling little bicycle carts Trace Osterham made for Arcade are a perfect metaphor for what’s going on with me. One way, Italian ice; the other, cotton candy. Wear it and ride off!

What else do you expect at the beginning of the summer? Flowers need to be planted (the windowboxes are in, by the way), all the classes have to be scheduled, a quick family trip planned, and SL12B is about to open! It’s easy to get around when you’re wearing something cute like this dress from Novery Lorakeet that she has at Shiny Shabby. With Bax Coen’s great little booties, now released in neutrals, it’s a lovely look, especially accessorized with Grazioso Alekseev’s gorgeous glasses (all prims—omg!) and one of Monica Outlander’s hair accessories for the Arcade.

Whatever Is Whatever

I am wearing one of the LeLutka mesh heads with an applier from Sawsan Secretspy, who has seen fit to bring her artistry to the various faces of LeLutka. With a great hud that offers several eye makeup and lipstick options, the head works perfectly with Sawsan’s skin for the Maitreya body. A cute easy little ponytail from Ikira Frimon for Shiny Shabby and I am ready to go!

“I don’t think there is ever a wrong time for a polka dot.” ~ Marc Jacobs

Never a Wrong Time

I just made the SL12B site (http://slcommunitycelebration.info) “live” yesterday and with all the moving parts in the site and in the organization, it was a bit of work, so I am ready to get outside for some fresh air and a little fun. (Please please join us for this great event!)

Spring is especially a good time for polka dots, and Moonbubble Gothly has colored my spring darling with this ruffled mesh blouse with polka dots. Available with a great texture change HUD that includes a plethora of polka dotted textures, the blouse is available at 100 Block, which means it’s discounted as well as exclusive. I paired it with jeans from Missqwerty Pevensey, also from 100 Block, in a great skinny style, and gacha items from Alia Whitfield, including a tote that has a texture change menu for the woven part of the bag. Sexy sandals from Senzati0n Domenitzo, which are fitted not just for Slink but also Maitreya feet (yay!) from 100 Block make me pink from head to toe literally.

Never a Wrong Time

Sopha Portal has made a series of gorgeous skins for the Black Fashion Fair, some in pale skin tones and some in deeper tones. With lined eyes and pale pink lips, they are pretty and sophisticated. The sets come with mouth appliers for various mesh mouths. I had to go to the store to get the body and hand appliers. Ikira Frimon made this darling cut for the Black Fashion Fair with her massively multicolor HUD. While it looks great in black, of course, it’s also darling in this bright pink. I love Polyester Partridge’s girly “normal” jewelry that she has been featuring at various events. This pretty pink gem is available at Kustom9.

Come you’re the only one
Come be my April Fool

Be my April Fool
We’ll break all the rules

~ “April Fool” by Patti Smith

April Fool

I love this song from Patti Smith, a gruff sweet song for an edgy look with its own bit of sweetness. The 100 Block opened yesterday and there are a ton of great looks at the “garage sale” they are putting on. Every exclusive item is marked down 20% or more. Like this hoodie mini-dress from Cynthia Ultsch, that is available in four colors and includes a HUD to texture the dress in different configurations, including the ties. The dress is made for standard sizes AND mesh body sizes. My boots are also from 100 Block, and they are Tatyana Ultsch’s offer, available in a ton of colors and also with a HUD to change looks up. They are custom mesh from Tatyana and yes, have been made for mesh bodies, including the Maitreya body. (Don’t they fit well?)

April Fool

I am wearing the Aria mesh head from LeLutka because Aida Ewing recently came out with makeup appliers for the head, and I wanted the chance to swap up a new look. Several in the collection are very specialized and avant garde, but this look is perfect for our tough girl with glossy red lips and smoky eyes. Ikira Frimon is featuring this darling braided ‘do with blunt-cut bangs at 100 Block, edgy enough for this look but cute enough to take the edge off our tough girl.

Melancholy—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 14

Melancholy—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 14

Isn’t it funny that at Christmas something in you gets so lonely for — I don’t know what exactly, but it’s something that you don’t mind so much not having at other times. ~ Kate L. Bosher

Melancholy

I have been spending some time wandering around SL by myself and rather enjoying it. There is something in me that needs time alone, and when I can view the beautiful creations in SL, I am often content. It seems melancholy but is a pensiveness that is sometimes suitable during a busy season. Barnesworth Anubis’ new gazebo that he is selling at Collabor88 is a perfect place for solitary contemplation.

And I am contemplating yesterday’s opening of Frost because it’s bound to be packed with goodies you want for a warm winter. This darling outfit from Lisanna Lauria is sure to please with a system top in several jewel tones that also comes with appliers and pretty skirts with sparkle. Tights from a gacha at Frost from Manda Schmooz keep my legs warm and beanster Potato’s great boots with a texture-change HUD complete my wintery outfit.

Melancholy

This shot accents the beautiful gift in the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar today—a gorgeous bracelet from Abraxxa Anatine, the goddess of metals and semi-precious stones. Abraxxa crafted this beautiful bracelet with sodalite and silver so it can be worn year-round, not just at the holidays.

My lovely long locks are Ikira Frimon’s featured style for Frost and I love this look. With the face-framing locks and the great texture-change HUD, this style has a lot to offer. My skin is a glowing look from Inka Mexicola with blushing cheeks and a lovely green eye makeup. And I love these deep blue peepers from Constance Daehlie.

Virginia Lover

“The November evening had a bite; it nibbled not-quite-gently at her cheeks and ears. In Virginia the late autumn was a lover, still, but a dangerous one.”
― J. Aleksandr Wootton, The Eighth Square

Virginia Lover

November is upon us in the northern hemisphere and slowly the days are growing much longer, the weather is colder and it’s rainy with some snow. Bleah. Time for a sweater, this one a lovely crocheted masterpiece in varigated yarns from Gocha Merlin. I tripped on her store in MP when I was doing the LL ads and loved her funky knits and outfits. She seems to do her own mesh with some great textures. I opted to wear the sweater with shorts and tights as I see all the girls around my area doing. Mesh shorts from Erratic Rain fit perfectly underneath and old old cabled tights I had in inventory from Myllie Writer with new mesh boots from Kenadeecole (so cool and fit on the Belleza body if you wear it).

Virginia Lover

Sad November has started and there are lots of fun things including this umbrella with an elaborate color change hud for different elements of the umbrella and an AO that keeps it in place while you walk around from Jaimy Hancroft. My hair has a great set of hair texture colors AND complete control of colors on the band and muffs of the ear uffs from Ikira Frimon. I wore pink lipstick from Constance Daehlie (and her lovely eyes for Enchanted) with a skin from Shyla Diggs. It all works together. Even if the skies are gray, my look is bright.
