Ac-Cent-U-Ate the Positive

Ac-Cent-U-Ate the Positive

You’ve got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with Mister In-Between

~ “Ac-Cent-U-Ate the Positive” done by Aretha Franklin

Ac-Cent-U-Ate the Positive

It’s time to put the good face on. I admit sometimes I can be cranky—can’t we all? But humming this tune reminds me I have to “eliminate the negative.” It’s easy to be positive when you feel put together and this new dress from Ivy Burner that she has at the 100 Block, which comes with a great texture-change HUD, is putting me in a very up mood. With a graceful billow of fabric at the waist, it shows a different silhouette than many minis nowadays but with the halter top and way open back, it’s still very sexy. Accentuated with darling little wedge booties from BabyChampagne Sass, also from 100 Block, and a great clutch from Aleida Rhode that includes texture change for the metals and is also found at 100 Block, I am feeling up beat.

Ac-Cent-U-Ate the Positive

Sawsan Secretspy is launching this new skin at the Spring Break Fair, and it’s a beauty with gorgeously made-up eyes and lush lips. I was thrilled when I wore Isabelle Requiem’s gorgeous eyes from Kustom 9 with this skin—it just all went together with Chiaki Xue’s sassy short haircut that she is selling at the Japan Fair. AvaGardner Kungler completes the look with stunning jeweled teardrop earrings. This confident look is the ideal approach to a rosy day.

Ac-Cent-U-Ate the Positive

You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium’s
Liable to walk upon the scene

Funny Bunnies

Funny Bunnies

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt! ~ Lucy Van Pelt

Funny Bunnies

Easter’s coming up and for some it’s and important holiday but for many it heralds the beginning of Spring. With chocolates and Easter egg hunts and bunnies, it’s a lovely holiday, and I have surrounded myself with the newest KittyCatS to celebrate. These kittens were custom made for the Showers & Flowers collection (rain, flowers, sunshine and blue skies) and the Bunny Babies, who wear darling flapbacked pajamas with bunny ears. These will be sold for only a limited time, so get them now! Interspersed are eggshell candles from Cherelle Capra and lovely sparkling art she is selling for the holiday (including one piece that is a group gift.

I dressed all in purple for the holiday, starting with my darling top from Paul Lapointe, which comes in a long and short version, which I wear here, and as usual, includes a texture-change HUD that offers 16 bright and muted textures. I have to note that Paul and Bast’s textures are infinitely better than your run of the mill looks. Paul does all his mesh himself and he does it with exacting attention. The fabric wraps around to a perfect insouciant bow in back. My jeans are from Christel Morane, who is selling these sexy skinny jeans at the 100 Block in several colors. My handbag is GraceHaddington’s newest, and it includes a texture change HUD with 8 colors and an AO that allows you to wear the handbag in several poses without seeing it go through your body. I picked up my shoes from the other day and decided to wear them because Pill Kanto did such a great job!

Funny Bunnies

My fresh look comes from PeachieMuah, who loves to add dimples and ruddiness to her faces to connote a healthful glow and youthfulness. Her skins are doll-like and precious but they still work on my rather longer face. My beautiful eyes are Isabelle Requiem’s featured product at Kustom9. I have been waiting for her to come out with new ones! Finally, my big fluffy hair comes from the master of feathered and fluffy locks, Kavar Cleanslate. I clicked around on his HUDs for quite a while to find this perfect blonde, pink-tinted look and had a good time imagining the possibilities. Hoppy Easter!

Persevere

Persevere

Of the Earth signs, Taurus most relate to an unmoving force of nature that has become wise through perseverance.

Persevere

I was born under the sign of Taurus, and I represent my sign well. Some will feel I have stubbornness, but I prefer to think of it as perseverance and steadiness. One blog I read suggested that the Taurus wants to get things done, and that pretty much sums me up. Taureans also love material things, beauty, the earth, the sensual and the grounded. “Down-to-earth” is how many describe me.

Persevere

This outfit is a perfect choice for me as a Taurean. It combines a cozy long sweater with artistically patterned leggings and sexy red heels. Made with a texture that makes the sweater seem plush and expensive, the outfit from Kim Lysette, which she has at LivGlam this weekend for 55L, is nevertheless a deal, which is important to Taureans, who like to spend on beautiful things but also want to make sure they have financial security.  My shoes, a buy at 70L, are AvaGardner Kungler’s offering at The Dressing Room Fusion. Beauty on the cheap is a great thing.

queue's hair

My hair is one of Queue Marlowe’s Arcade pieces. At 50L a pop, it’s well worth it because she gives you a full array of colors in each hair and has included a darling little charm for every sun sign. She gave me the Taurus to show after I stubbornly insisted I wanted it. (Go figure.) My skin is a melange of pieces from the Aria set from Aida Ewing at the Arcade. She has configured it cleverly so you can get add-on pieces and mix and match for a great look. Pretty blue eyes from Isabelle Requiem, for the One Word event, complete the look.

Persevere

Time Is On My Side

Time Is On My Side

Time is on my side, yes it is
Time is on my side, yes it is

~ “Time Is On My Side” by The Rolling Stones

Time Is On My Side

Ennui in Paris is a fine thing. It suits. A bit of rambling about one’s home with the Parisian lights twinkling below does wonders for the intellect and one’s mind. It’s how Foucault made his name, how Derrida deconstructed, how Barthes wrote his Mythologies. In a skybox like the one from Tya Fallingbridge, the Clock Tower available at FaMESHed, with its functional clock (you can set to your time and chimes on the hour) and interchangeable city scenes, including this of Paris, you can experience your own sweet time around the globe.

Time Is On My Side

I have donned a gorgeous outfit from SamanthaSJones. I love Sam’s use of color and texture in her outfits, her sense of proportion and material and pure style. Every piece she turns out is classy with well-done textures. Pink stiletto pumps from Senzati0n Domenitzo, which she offers with a color change HUD for six different shoe colors, punctuate my at-home look. (I am in Paris—I HAVE to be chic, even in a state of ennui.)

As for the skybox, I can go on about the fine features of this abode, including the open stair case upon which the clock from the window is projected, the lofted bedroom and the beautifully appointed bathroom, complete with couple’s shower (functional) and his and hers sinks.

Time Is On My Side

Of course, a skybox like this can’t remain empty so I outfitted it with Tobias Convair’s sectional (seen above) from FaMESHed and Cory Edo’s terrific Ines collection, also from FaMESHed. The Branch Screen is absolutely exquisite and decorates this loft beautifully as well as the other pieces including the chair and ottoman. You can mix and match these pieces with others you have owned—they are not necessarily meant to be used together, though I show them here so you can see them (and how well they go in this loft, incidentally).

Time Is On My Side

Aida Ewing is offering a gorgeous new skin at Collabor88 in Sylvia. This time she went all out, offering several nose options, cheek makeups, eye makeups and lipsticks as well as eyebrow shades. It’s really quite a bargain, especially for such a gorgeous skin. Imagine the possibilities. I loved putting on Truth Hawks’ newest long straight ‘do, which is also at FaMESHed. I chose the teal tipped hair to match my outfit. I love that his HUDs offer so many color options.

Time Is On My Side

Go ahead, go ahead and light up the town
And baby, do everything your heart desires
Remember, I’ll always be around
And I know, I know
Like I told you so many times before
You’re gonna come back, baby

Fresh Feeling

Fresh Feeling

You don’t have a clue
What it is like to be next to you
I’m here to tell you
That it is good
That it is true

~ “Fresh Feeling” by the Eels

Fresh Feeling

I am going to reframe the winter. I will see the cold air as “fresh” air. After all, the sun is out, the snow has stopped falling. Put on a warm coat and boots and take a walk. In this warm coat with lace hem from Circe Ishtari, it can be a fresh day and cute too. Circe is presenting this darling coat for the Style Icon. She has included a hud that changes the colors of the lace, cuffs and body of the coat to preset neutrals or you can tint yourself. LacunaInc is selling these stockings with hearts up the seam at Style Icon as well. And Cerberus Noel just rereleased the Nancy boots in additional colors with a color change hud to control your laces, cuff and toe colors.

Fresh Feeling

Lutricia Roux has created a skin for the Style Icon fashion fair inspired by Audrey Hepburn. With her classic dark brows and pretty lashed eyes, this skin evokes the delicacy of Hepburn’s features. A darling cut with buns and a color change hairband from Truth Hawks completes this look.

The Socialite

The Socialite

“Socialite women meet socialite men and mate and breed socialite children so that we can fund small opera companies and ballet troupes because there is no government subsidy.” ~ Sugar Rautbord

The Socialite

The socialite—the one I have in mind—doesn’t live in California or Arizona but keeps homes there and in Hawaii. She spends the fund raising season in chilly New York, however, which explains her fur-collared coat, this from Teekie, simply an outer garment to get her from the penthouse to the limousine to the benefit party. Removing her coat reveals a gorgeous, corseted brocade dress, fitted just to her and made by Christel Morane. Both she discovered at the Style Icon fashion fair along with her gorgeous glittering jewelry from Belle Roussel.

The Socialite

Of course she sports a healthy sun kissed glow from her recent trip to Aspen and her make-up was applied by Nataliewells, who came to her penthouse earlier tonight to get her ready, including a full compliment of lipsticks and eyeshadows. Nails were done by artist Giela Delpaso, who also contributed to the fair. And her up-do was styled by Marisa Karu, who had first created this style for a Miss Virtual World. Our socialite knows the best so she appears flawless, rich and beautiful on the society pages while spreading her wealth around for all her pet projects.

Westwood

Westwood

“Fashion is life-enhancing and I think it’s a lovely, generous thing to do for other people.” ~ Vivienne Westwood

Westwood

The Style Icon event will be opening on February 7, and it looks to be an invigorating fashion fair. Dozens of designers, inspired by “style icons,” will be selling exclusive content that speaks to their influences. Blessedly some didn’t just choose the same old, same old. Datrip Blackbart did a turn on Vivienne Westwood with this mesh gown, a combination of Malcolm McLaren references (Sid Vicious’ face imprinted on the hip) and a mash up of the British Flag, dirtied up and mixed with a pink leopard print boa. How else could Datrip better draw inspiration from the queen of punk couture?

Westwood

I was so inspired by Datrip’s inspiration that I tried to accessorize this dress accordingly. I brought out a short cut from Chiaki Xue, a modern Miley cut, but in pink, and I added one of Maddox Dupont’s slick shaved hairbases, which is tintable! Cool gray eyes from Isabelle Requiem match the edgy gorgeous skin that Nina Helix is selling at the Enchantment event. Not only do you get brown and black brows, but also wine and plum, ideal for a punk couture look. Finally a spiked earring from L33ghL33 finishes the look with its touch of menace and well… retro punkiness.

Chili

Chili

“The aroma of good chili should generate rapture akin to a lover’s kiss.” ~ Motto of the Chili Appreciation Society International

Chili

A crockpot full of chili is brewing inside today while a snow storm is brewing outside. I have pretty much had enough of winter and I know a lot of people around here feel the same. So what to do except fill my day with color and spice? The chili’s going so now I will dress myself up in color, and this gorgeous outfit from Ariadna Garrigus is making my day. She has chosen a gorgeous embroidered print to embellish this jacket and flared-leg trousers for a little spice, wrapping me up in warm sunshiny bright chili pepper reds and greens and golds. AvaGardner Kungler is sending sunshine from the southern hemisphere my way with her warm painted wood jewelry. I put this beautiful ethnic-beaded necklace on my neck and felt the sun rays touch my skin.

Chili

Umazuma Metaluna has come out with another fabulous new skin with fresh freckles and a defined heavier but groomed brow. Love love this beautiful face with its subtle lip and expressive eyes. The tendrilled hairbase comes on the skin, which is an added plus, especially paired with Tabata Jewell’s wild and wavy pulled back hair. Clicking around on the HUD, I found this brown that matched perfectly and went with lovely translucent eyes from Isabelle Requiem. What a beautiful contrast to the white snow and gray skies outside!

When Spring Comes….

When Spring Comes...

“If winter comes, can spring be far behind?” ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

When Spring Comes...

When spring comes, and undoubtedly it will because a hyacinth in a pot on my dining room table is belling her fragrance and telling me excitedly that spring is coming, some day, soon. My bike is sitting out in the garage, orange and bright blue and hopeful. My gardening clogs are lying obediently by the back door, biding their time. It’s going to come, spring is, I know it.

And when it does I will be damn happy, as I am sure anyone will. This dress from Amberchaudry Corpur reminds me of that happiness with its pastel colors and glittering lines. In shadows, the alphas in the skirt don’t do the dress the greatest favor but in the light most would wear this—unshadowed—it’s quite pretty, and quite a deal at the Designer Showcase. I also got my pink and pretty nail appliers at the Designer Showcase, from S1nful Viper, who features several pastel sets. My bracelets feature materials from Maxi Gossamer.

When Spring Comes...

I rather adore the new skin from Izzie Button that she is offering at the Liaison Collaborative. She offers appliers in her store for all her skin tones and a set of makeups with this skin, which is beautiful and sexy in the best ways. My updo is one of Mirja Mill’s gorgeously created buns with the great hair base. It looks so sleek and so sexy this way. And earrings are Plurabell Laszlo’s offering for I <3 Role Play. They can be used with any outfit that needs a touch of spring.

When Spring Comes...

“Unless one decorates one’s house for oneself alone, best leave it bare, for other people are walleyed.” ~ D.H. Lawrence

Home

This is going to be one of those mega blog entries where I share all the pretties I have picked up or been given. Start with this fabulous skybox from Tobias Corvair, which he is featuring at Fameshed. He calls it the “Architect’s Skybox” but I have figured out that it’s the gacha-player’s skybox with all its wall space and shelves. I hung the clever windowboxes from Barnesworth Anubis outside with his pansies and vines (which you can’t see) and took a shot through the window. Barnesworth makes the flowers super big so you can arrange and shrink them. A great tip is to LINK them when you have arranged to reduce the land impact.

Home

Tobias gives the main floor a big space so you can enjoy a main living and social area. I arranged a more traditional chair from Hideki Carami’s gacha at Chapter Four (you get two chairs in the “prize”) with Cory Edo’s latest chairs for Collabor88. Cory’s chairs come in a handful of great decorating colors (lots of neutrals) and have a huge variety of poses and animations and, if you’re in the mood for love, delectable adult animations.

Home

Tobias tucks little shelves under the staircases—the one up to the bedroom, which I made into a contemplative loft lounge—and then another up to a top-floor balcony. I put some of my yard sale gacha finds on the shelves, particularly my collection of art dummies from Robin Sojourner. (Yes, I do the gacha yard sales. Your trash is my treasure!) And he gives you an abundance of walls. I was able to hang my entire collection of LeeZu Baxter gacha posters around the skybox.

Home

Tya Fallingbridge has a nice set of home accessories at FaMESHed including this modern lounge chair with footstool, side table and funky flower lamp. The chair includes several relaxing poses including this contemplative one, perfect for resting and listening to music after a long day.

I opted to make coffee the theme of the kitchen downstairs, using a darling graphic from Isabelle Requiem’s gacha at Oh My Gacha. She includes several kitchen and house décor items, including the rug beneath my feet. These little touches are what makes a house a home.

Home

My outfit is an assemblage of pieces I liked together—first, the slouchy sweater from Sanura Snowpaw, a warm casual look for being at home. I paired it with Ivey Deschanel’s skirt from her ensembles at the Dressing Room Fusion. I am so glad to see Ivey working with mesh. Her textures have always been outstanding and at 70L, the skirt and top (which you don’t see here) are a steal with the quality she puts into them. My little boots are LeeZu Baxter’s mesh concoctions, wearable art on my feet rather than just on the walls.

Shyla Diggs has come out with a new skin for Collabor88, and I wear it with pleasure, opting for a pale lip to match the smoky eye, which accents a pair of eyes from Umazuma Petaluna’s gacha at Chapter Four. Fortunately, I lucked into these blue beauties though looking at her prize board, they are are all gorgeous. Amberly Boccacio is offering several colors of this funky necklace at Collabor88—it comes with silver or gold metal. And Circe Ishtari has made a long short cut with winsome wisps and a color change menu in the hair itself—click for colors and relax.
