My Green-Eyed Love

My love, my green-eyed love
We’ll watch the clouds from above
C’mon, lift me up

My Green-Eyed Love

These last few days before school deserve a good pop song and some casual clothes. It’s drawing to the end of summer and I never want it to end. (Make sure you listen to that song I link above!) The top is from Jamie Marlowe, who has just recently closed her store, and it’s a shame because her work is great. The capris are from Tuli Asturias, who does seem to get a lot of press in this blog. I wore them despite myself but they were so perfect!

My Green-Eyed Love

I ran to get one of the skins made by Juliette Westerburg, the darling of the alternative set. I really liked the skin over this gorgeous more full-figured shape from Xme Xue. I had to redo my eyebrows to get the crazy “winged” thing she had going on with the brows to settle down, but the colors are lovely—the lips are sensual and pretty and the blush through the skin is gorgeous. Hair is from Truth Hawks, who has decided to blow up the grid with a sale on all his hair. Asset servers are straining as inventories bulk up with Truth fat packs. (It’s not really LL causing all these problems—it’s all Truth’s fault.)

My love, my green-eyed love
You know when push comes to shove
I need you, you’re in my blood

Oh will you take me as l am?
Will you take me as l am?

Au Naturel

I was feeling sort of natural and free because the weather has been summery warm. Pull out the sandals and the shorts and put on something pretty and loose. Barbra and AvaGardner Kungler run a great store with options for mixing and matching a number of different looks. I found this great top with a drapey sort of sculpty prim (I am not always fond of prims around the waist as they look frumpy but this one works). Shorts from Barbra and AvaGardner complete the look.

Au Naturel

I am showing a skin that came to me in a review set from out of the blue. Receiving the package, I ripped it open and to my pleasure found a set of beautiful skins from Trin Trevellion. The skin I show was a natural choice for one who tends towards being a redhead, as I do. I was amazed by the artistry of these hand drawn skins. This set, a fifth generation, shows studied work on the collarbone, lips, eyes, eyebrows and the absolutely beautiful freckles.

Au Naturel

So we can admire the skin a little further on the feet and these great sandals from Yabusaka Loon that include a color changing gem. Douglas Story asked if it was really me in “flats.” Yes, I am taking it easy today, Douglas ;)

Au Naturel

California I’m coming home
Oh will you take me as I am
Strung out on another man
California I’m coming home

Near the Adriatic

There is nothing quite so beautiful as blue. OK, there’s green.. yes.. and red at certain times. And then there’s the beautiful white glitter of a diamond. But blue.. blue is the sea and the sky.

Near the Adriatic

This dress from Indyra Seigo, with its luscious pops of color, its graceful and sexy silhouette, and its casual richness makes wearing blue so easy. Indyra has mixed a simple black dress (worn sexily low cut) with a low-slung beaded belt and a ribboned hem. The dress is versatile yet unique—it reminds me of the hand crafted wealthy ladies like to wear when they want to look hippy chic. It’s not grungy or messy—it fits in all the right places.

Near the Adriatic

I accessorized with Abraxxa Anatine’s absolutely gorgeous Karuka set. Abraxxa reaches farther and farther with each release, making the prims fit to her will with her beautiful textures and amazing aesthetic. Yes, I would gladly wear this necklace and bracelet in real life.

Near the Adriatic

The shoes are from Onyx LeShelle, from the Maitreya Gold line. There is something so fantastic about the mix of materials and textures in these shoes—the feathers and leather and beads and snakeskin and metal. Onyx shows of her incredible building and texturing skills in these shoes (now you make a bead look that good—I dare ya). And the toes.. well.. they are to die for.

Day Off

I’m having one of those days when I just want to run away and take the day off. I don’t want to do my hair, dress up, sort my notecards, talk to anyone—I just want to be left alone to torture prims or something.

Day Off

I want to wear something comfy, so I put on this really cute tank top from Babyhoney Bailey. The former model is now a fashion maker herself, and wow, she really does some great work. I LOVE this tank—the subtle shadows, the print with the vintage ladies, the flirty skirt.

Day Off

I paired it up with jeans from Miseria Daines. They are really well done with rips and wrinkles and that sort of relaxed grungy feel that is so important on a day like today.

Day Off

My hair’s a mess, thanks to Kavar Cleanslate. This style is my wavy hair, loosely tied, needing a wash probably. But still looking cute!

Finally, slip on clogs from sakka Flow. Easy, comfy, ideal when I am flopping around the sim, trying to force a prim to my will and ignoring the blue screens in the corner.

Day Off

Well after realizing how cute I look, the day is looking up:

Summer Break

Summer’s almost over. We could feel a chill in the air (already) this weekend when we were outside. The weather was lovely today, however, so I made sure I got outside.

Summer Break

Of course on a day like today—a little chilly, a little relaxed—we are not wearing evening dresses around the sim. I opted for this cute top from Acid & Mala Creations. I liked its simplicity and sexiness.

Summer Break

I show them with jeans from Zaara Kohime. She is known for her beautiful Indian-inspired clothing, but she also does some great jeans for women and men. These light blue jeans are worn in and fit me as if I have owned them for years.

Summer Break

I slipped on some shoes from Mai Runo. These kickabouts have no base shoe, they are so versatile. She has them in several colors and some really great boots. It’s a small store but well worth a visit.

Summer Break

Finally, I can’t say enough about Maeve Mortlock’s Ear Candy jewelry. Every purchase is a mere 59L. She makes the kind of earrings I want in RL—handmade of beads and trinkets, not too ostentatious. I am showing one of Lorac’s newest skins in the Valeries line. The subtlety of the makeup really appeals to me. Hair is from Miel—a really terrific updo I will wear again and again.
