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.

Funny How Time Slips Away

Well hello there
My, it’s been a long long time
How am I doin’
Oh well, I guess I’m doin’ fine
It’s been so long now and it seems that
It was only yesterday
Ain’t it funny how time slips away

~ Willie Nelson, “Funny How Time Slips Away”

Funny How Time Slips Away

Today’s post was inspired by an old recording of a Willie Nelson song, “Funny How Time Slips Away,” the one recorded in 1962 with the ladies crooning in the background. He also wrote “Crazy,” very famously performed by Patsy Cline. Hence today’s look, which is built on the foundation of a great skin by Keiko Morigi, poignant in its illustrative character (so unlike the many airbrushed looks we see around the grid). I top it with a great vintage ‘do from Bubbles Clawtooth, one of many vintage pieces he offers.

The shirt’s from Floatie Hock, who has a good thing going with her vintage wear (and great sims). This can be worn by a man or a woman (as most of her items, they look great on either sex). I wanted to find a big full skirt, ala Patsy Cline at the Grand Ol’ Opry, but nothing was turning up, so I ran over to Antonia Marat’s and found these cute rockabilly-style highwaist pants. Finally, the cowboy boots are from Cerberus Noel and appropriately decorated. No cowgirl would be seen dead on a horse on these but in front of an audience of music lovers, yes indeed!

Country Girl

A fresh blanket of wet snow has fallen (are you tired of my weather reports yet?) I am dreaming of fresh air, green grass, bright bold sunshine. OK, I acknowledge the snow looks pretty, white against the gray of the branches, frosting everything in sugary softness…. But it’s stinkin’ cold!

Country Girl

A trip over to Looloo Beck’s store cured some cabin fever. Between her great sexy clothes and her compelling advertising, Looloo’s store is a place where SL fantasies can begin. In this case, I imagine being a country girl, cheeks glowing with fresh air, and springtime friskiness. Looloo cleverly incorporates sculpty prims with her incredible textures to make an outfit that is at once innocent and sexy with its peekaboo jeans and top.

Country Girl

Underneath the barely buttoned top is a sexysweet bra and panties set with a pretty red-flowered and eyelet print.

I show here a collar from SC Tracy at RFyre, a bit decontextualized (it’s really more gothic than country but heck, it’s barbed wire). SC has been making jewelry and accessories for RFyre that include his great texture and terrific eye for detail. This is being released Wednesday but, well, I get to wear it sooner. Nyah nyah.

With another one of Truth Hawks’ amazing hair styles (how does he do it, week after week?) and Tricky Boucher’s fresh Alyson skin, well I am a country girl ready for kickin’ up a little dust.

Country Girl

And oh my, the boots. JB Gazov has tapped into some sort of lizard brain of mine where all I want to wear are cowgirl boots and two step my way around the grid. I bought the “fatpack” boot, which is scripted to show any of ten colors available. You will be seeing these boots again. They are incredibly textured and sculpted.
