Wild Honey Pie

Summer’s almost over (as evidenced by the gray sky I see outside today). But I can sneak one more day of shorts in before the air turns nippy. The shorts I chose are demin Daisy Dukes from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus, as always accompanied by a ton of choices in their texture change HUD, from designs on the pockets to the denim color to the belt style and color. I picked red, of course, to match the corset-like top Annie Melson has made for the Mesh Body Addicts event this month. Darling little cowboy boots from Klari55a for the Mesh Body Addicts match this casual look.

I really am loving Shyla Diggs’ new applier for the Catwa heads, so I chose it again for my blog. This time I have used a darker skin tone and pretty freckles with a deep red lip. I especially like that her skins match up with the Belleza body skins, which are so sexy on the body itself. Somehow Shyla and Tricky have added a special sexiness to the skins with the details they have chosen—beautiful collarbones, a shapely belly, even sexy knees. My long thick hair is NoMatch’s featured look for Hairology, long feathered locks with a center part. It’s a perfect last-breath-of-summer ensemble.

I love being so fly, pink and purple, soft and sexy. Ariadna Garrigus’ gorgeous new dress with a versatile texture change HUD fits the bill. I am especially happy that it fits the Belleza Isis body. I am disappointed that so many creators have not chosen to work with the Belleza bodies—the Isis is very sexy and curvy in the right ways and this dress, all my “assets” are shown to their best advantage. I was able to mix and match colors on Celena Galli’s shoes for this round of Mesh Body Addicts to make everything match up.

I wish Shyla Diggs was issuing more skins and appliers. She does the most perfectly beautiful looks with subtle makeups, sensuous creamy skins and an absolutely gorgeous body. If I had a skin I would choose to wear every day to look beautiful, it would most definitely be Shyla’s. With the Destiny Catwa head, it looks absolutely perfect, especially with Shyla’s sexy makeups. I chose to wear Mina Nakamura’s long center-parted hair because the textures are so terrific and the color is a gorgeous blond. I am so fly!

“It is a great mistake for men to give up paying compliments, for when they give up saying what is charming, they give up thinking what is charming.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Compliments

I don’t hand out compliments thoughtlessly. I hate coming off as a sycophant or as insincere. I think most folks get that when I say something complimentary, I mean it. (It’s a Midwestern thing.) That being said, I got the lucky chance to be a blogger for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, and I have been trying to show a few things that have come through for the event. I didn’t get the full import of the event, however, until I got a preview. I really have to compliment the organizers (mainly LilDaria, the owner of the Mesh Body Addicts blog, and Ravenwings). The layout is shopping friendly without a lot of silly décor, walls, paths or other obstacles. The designers are allowed to have more than just an exclusive piece, so there is lots of shopping fun. And the line-up is freakin’ fantastic with such big hitters as Maitreya, Belleza, Catwa, Blueberry, and others participating. Even better, there are some newcomers and lesser-known names joining in, and that’s what makes it so exciting. For once it seems like no one was excluded for any other reason than they don’t do original stuff for mesh bodies. It doesn’t feel cliquey, it’s professional, and it seems everyone has put their best (mesh) foot forward with every single store filled. No small feat. Well done!

Exciting news out of Belleza too, as Tricky Boucher has released an update to the Belleza bodies with a redesigned HUD, an alternate body that takes down the graphic resources used (called Lite), and several new rigging and body part updates that make this body sleeker and better (including a seemingly seamless neck). Most importantly, the body is an UPDATE, which means no additional cost accrues to those who already own the body. That’s a big deal because Tricky derives no immediate benefit from all this work except hopefully new sales to people who will weigh the improvements against other bodies and purchase new. It’s really quite generous. Worn with one of Shyla’s recent appliers for Fifty Linden Friday, it’s a gorgeous look top to bottom. (Please note I am wearing Catwa Clip’s newest mesh head, featured at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, one that I have been raving about for the past couple days. Looks awesome with Shyla’s applier and fits the Belleza body absolutely perfectly.)

I wore this dress from Sukoshitosuto from the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, a darling number that can you around the grid and fits the Belleza Isis body perfectly. Many creators have foregone making stuff for Belleza bodies and I hope they get back to it because it’s a great body and as I understand, the designer pack is easier to use than others. Shoes from Equitum, which are featured at Tres Chic, fit the Belleza feet and add prettiness to my look.

I hunted down the pretty necklace Crashnoww has in his gacha at The Epiphany and wore AvaGardner Kungler’s newest earrings for the Cosmopolitan Room, glamorous and pretty with this look. Finally, Elikapeka Tiramisu’s ponytail for Shiny Shabby is a simple and pretty look for getting around the grid.

I took a springtime walk at Nusquam, enjoying the windlight through the trees and the warming spring air on the sim. I went for a black and white look to combine some fun pieces from The Project Se7en and Shiny Shabby. First is this dress/shirt combo from Larcoco Mathy for the Project Se7en that includes a HUD with a ton of choices for the inside dress. Then I pulled on funky socks made by BerthaWeiss, also at The Project Se7en, which has resizable garters that include a HUD for color choices. I am wearing some funky platform shoes from Pill Kanto for Shiny Shabby, a double balance on the train track at Nusquam. Mea Carnell’s stylish necklace for SaNaRae adds some circles to all my stripes.

Shyla Diggs is rocking the appliers lately and has come out with another applier for the Catwa heads, this one new for the Mix Event and absolutely gorgeous. With several eye makeup and lipstick choices, it’s a great look on the Annie head. Shylah Honey has been cranking out some darling looks lately and this wavy casual ‘do for Fameshed is perfect for this spring day.

Angel of the Morning

Spring is coming so I don’t think it’s entirely unbelievable that I would want to walk out into my garden in my dainties, especially when they are as beautiful as the lingerie Erratic Rain makes. She has released this gorgeous robe for Uber which can be worn open, as I show it, or closed via the HUD. In colors that match her lingerie perfectly (here I wear a bra and panties set she previously made), it’s a beautiful gift for the lady in your life or yourself. Senzati0n Domenitzo recently released these classic pumps in her store and has made available a set of spring colors. I found my garden perfect with Cory Edo’s collection for Uber, a small ivy-covered house with surrounding garden, complete with lighted trees, stone pavers and a beautifully textured terrain. She includes some beautifully-conceived garden furniture for sale as well, including this peacock bench.

The Se7en Project opens in a couple days and it includes some new and old designers. I am kind of interested to see what the mix will be, especially after pulling out this lovely hair bow from Frangipani Flow that comes with a HUD to manage the color of the bow and the individual blossoms. Shyla Diggs has made a new applier for the Catwa heads, this gorgeous look for spring which she is featuring at Uber. As always, her artistry and delicate hand with makeups comes through on the skins. Carina Larsen’s beautiful updo is an elegant top to this beautiful spring look.
