Waiting, but I don’t mind
I’m all bus stops and heat
I’m neon in your daylight
I’m the optimist of 30th Street
How it is is how it oughta be

~ “Optimist” by David Byrne and St. Vincent


When you see the buds on the trees, Radiohead drops a new song, sunshine arrives, you can’t help but be an optimist. I put together a casual, about-town outfit and strolled the streets of St. Pete’s City. My top and jacket are Ariadne Garrigus’ newest separate with a texture change HUD for the top and sweatshirt. She gives you a ton of cute patterns and solids for the top. I matched them up with the funky harem-style pants from AscendSL that comes with a color-change HUD and bejeweled sandals from Lilo Denimore, both featured at Shiny Shabby. Aikea Reiko has a selection of darling embossed handbags and Empyreanforge has a terrific bracelet set with texture change HUD at Shiny Shabby.


Queue Marlowe is bringing this great ponytail back from the Fantasy Faire and putting it in her store soon. My skin is Inka Mexicola’s generous group gift for the Essences fans, a system skin with all the beauty we are accustomed to from Inka. And I am totally in love with these gorgeous eyes from Audrey Lamede for Cosmopolitan Room.

March came in like a lamb and went out like a lion for us with tons of wind! I am guessing that’s why Miffyhoi Rosca made this darling dress for The Project Se7en with the wind motion already incorporated. I struggled with it at first for photos but found a perfect choice in Isabeau Baragula’s lovely chair, also for The Project Se7en, which swayed gently in the breeze, hanging from Mitsuko Kytori’s bowed tree. The tree, which comes with tons of choices, including blossoms, wind levels, etc., can be multiplied to create a lovely bower, though one was enough for me. My little doll from Miffyhoi and I curled up for a daytime nap. The dress includes a HUD that turns the flower print on and off and the doll has a color change HUD included. Isabeau has built in a ton of poses for singles and couples and includes a bunch of texture choices for the pillows and seat. Pretty little flats from Lilo Denimore for Shiny Shabby complete my outfit.

Umazuma Metaluna still does system skins for those of you who have not been able or willing to commit to a mesh head, and as always, they are gorgeous. This one was made for a recent event (which I missed by a couple days) but is sure to be offered in her store soon. My wind blown hair is one of Bubbles Clawtooth’s lovely pieces, which I got on sale recently. A perfect style to go with my dress!
