Change of Heart

Well, I guess you must have had a change of heart
You don’t treat me like you did at the start
Your campaign of love was quite a work of art
Now I guess you must have had a change of heart

~ Change of Heart by Teddy Thompson

Cowboy Take Me Away

Melancholy country and western songs are my secret pleasure. A little Teddy Thompson or Mavericks or Alison Krauss, and I am pleasantly emo. Then I want to wear somethign a little country, a little bohemian. A trip to Twill Tymet’s place finds a great off-the-shoulder sweater and a tie-dyed skirt with belt to make this bohemian girl’s heart melt. The skirt is fantastically made from what looks like a photosourced texture (that it isn’t instantly apparent to me shows that it’s nicely done) and topped by a nicely engraved two-buckle belt.

AtomicSparkle Skytower and her incredibly long name make my face new and fresh with a matte makeup that was offered for the Black Friday sales through the Skin Addiction group. I bought the fat pack—I couldn’t resist. What most attracted me were the eye shadows and the even tone of the face. While the lips are still a little overfull (I tried to use the sliders to cut them down with no luck), they have a really nicely done matte look.

Topsy Turvy

A beautiful day today. We’re going out to buy plants today, especially a tomato plant we can put in one of those Topsy Turvy things. It’s a casual day, full of the topsy turvy joy of springtime and gardening.

Topsy Turvy

A tank top, some cargo pants, sandals, and I am set to poke around in the aisles of plants and ground covers. The tank top and pants are supplied by Aree Lilibub—cute and versatile. The cargos, incidentally, are finished off with a cuff but I forewent those in favor of the tie up sandals from elka Lehane, which I bought as a fat pack for a mere 200L.

Topsy Turvy

Nothing wrong with throwing on a bunch of jewelry on, especially if all you’re doing is walking among the flowers and picking only one little tomato plant out. I dug in my bauble box and came up with an assortment of pieces to make this bohemian nature lover more believable. (Who says I have to get dirt under my fingernails—isn’t that what gloves and gardeners are for?) Trinkets from Polyester Patridge, Kiki Cunningham, Sari Telling, and Maeve Mortlock make me jingle as I poke around in the impatiens. (And who said we didn’t have enough attachment points?)

Bohemian Rhapsody

I love the mix and match of SL. We are given several layers, flexis, various attachment points, sculpties, and even color-changing shoes!

Bohemian Rhapsody

The best part is that I can dress as I please every single day. Today I felt bohemian so I mixed and matched an outfit here using elements from fri.day as well as Sari’s. First we have the great short jacket from Darling Monday with its almost retro elements, nicely tailored with a ruffle around the neck (and fits great). Then we have Sari Telling’s funky and fun prints with their Indian influence. I love these pants (though the system piece is no mod—argh—can’t shorten them).

Bohemian Rhapsody

Women all over the grid were heard to squeal when Tricky Boucher announced he was releasing a new skin for women. I, of course, ran post haste to get a few. And was I happy I did. Following on the beauty of his Alyson skin, Elle has a more mature demeanor. No freckles now and a decidedly sophisticated and sexy face.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Finally smexy shoes from nut Barak. What bums me out is that I went to Orange Creations probably a day before these came out. But I won’t complain. The shoes are luscious with beautiful toes (it really is all about the toes) and fashionable styling. I love the zippers in back.

Bohemian Rhapsody

I will say I had a little trouble matching these in world (as usual). I used the setting they told me to use for Belleza’s Elle. I am wondering when skin makers will come out with shoes to match their skins. Would make sense, don’t you think?

Bohemian Rhapsody

Because I’m easy come, easy go
Little high, little low
Any way the wind blows
Doesn’t really matter to me, to me

Stroll Down the Rue de Rivoli

Ever see those beautiful young ladies you see walking around in every city, casually fashionable, beautiful in their hurry to yoga class/art studio/poetry reading? They throw on whatever’s on the floor and it all goes together and looks fantastic. I want to be one of those girls. So I made myself one of them. The only thing I am missing is a huge handbag and brown cardboard-sheathed cup of coffee or bottle of Evian water.

Stroll down the Rue de Rivoli

This sweater from sato Yifu is one of my favorite pieces. It’s a sweater I would wear in RL with its nubby texture and draped collar. It’s so bohemian and smart at the same time. I paired it with sexy leggings from Iki Ikarus, and chunky crafty earrings from Maeve Mortlock (my heroine of the 59L earrings).

My hair’s up in a sweet pony tail from Hal*Hina (pulled from a special promotion they are currently offering that I read about in Beanie’s blog). The patchwork scarf is from the funky Sari Telling and also a piece I would wear in RL. I LOVE scarves.

And oh, JB, my dear JB. These cowboy boots are killer. Again, let me ramble on about his terrific textures and his great sculpties, the versatility, and the color changing included. (Yes, I got the full monty in the boots—the pair with all eight colors.)
