The Love Zone

School’s not going to start soon enough in our household. The weather is gorgeous and perfect for shorts and a tank top. I love the textures on this new tank from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus. I especially loved the old Billy Ocean song lyrics! Apple May’s shorts for Shiny Shabby fit perfectly and are a great look for a warm day, especially with strappy wedges from Darling Monday. A pretty glittery pink choker from Liza Broono from the Dressing Room is a glamorous little touch.

Elikapeka Tiramisu’s darling hair for Shiny Shabby, casually pulled back with a little tie, has a sly, long lock of hair hiding one eye. And it’s a shame to hide these lovely eyes from Audrey Lamede from the Dressing Room. Nicole Button’s applier with freckles sprinkled across the nose lends a sort of innocence to this elegant skin, especially with its bee stung lips and well-groomed brows.

Cool Girl

I went over to the West of the Rain for a cool summer day scene with poses from Katya Valeska for Shiny Shabby. I started with a new top from Doc Eldritch that includes some fabulous colors and a beautiful texture. Doc makes all his mesh from scratch and custom fits it to mesh bodies so it’s perfect every time. I paired it with shorts I got from Kinu Mayako at Thrift Shop that includes a HUD to allow different parts of the shorts to be switched out. Criss-crossed platforms from Darling Monday’s sale make this a sexy casual look.

Cool Girl

A trip to Shiny Shabby will also make you a cool girl. Start with Umazuma Metaluna’s gorgeous skin from Shiny Shabby, an applier for Catwa heads, which I am showing on the Destiny head. With gorgeous eyes from Lilanachristina and a unique necklace set from Aikeo Reiko for Shiny Shabby, the look is fabulous. I love the smooth long look from Vivienmarli for Shiny Shabby as well, a simple and easy ‘do for a casual freedom.

“Baby, you’re much too fast…”

~ “Little Red Corvette” by Prince

Little Red Corvette

My second car was a red car. It was kind of a piece of crap but I liked to imagine the color made it cooler than it was. They I went through a series of red cars because I was a kind of red car girl (Baby, I’m much too fast). When I put this outfit on from Onyx Leshelle for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, I though it would go well with a car wash theme (body suit under short cut-offs) but my photos ended up being more pin-up than car wash. The outfit fits absolutely perfectly, of course, and the textures are amazing. The top and shorts both come with texture-change HUDs. I ran to Darling Monday’s sale to get a part of cute sandals to go with the outfit.

Little Red Corvette

Brandon Papp makes the prettiest skins when he makes them. It’s not a full-time job for him so when he comes out with a new skin, it’s great news! I put this beautiful look on the LeLutka Lotte head and it was a gorgeous look. With magical eyes from Lonlysoule, I have a smouldering look just for a red car. I added the pretty side braid Kuranosuke Kamachi has made for the Enchantment event. Though it was made for “Dorothy” from the Wizard of Oz, it is quite versatile and sexy and looks marvelous here.

~ “How to Disappear Completely” by Radiohead

How to Disappear Completely

They were playing this Radiohead song on the stream at Furillen so I thought it was a perfect title for this entry. I put together a sort of eclectic look this time, starting with Paul Lapointe’s and Bastchild Lotus’ boho crop top, which they have reconfigured to fit Slink and Maitreya bodies. I matched it with short ruffle tap pants from TheAnnex for The Project Se7en and bowed platform pumps from Darling Monday with optional stockings (that I opted to wear) from Darling Monday, also for The Project Se7en.

How to Disappear Completely

I piled on the jewelry. First I wore Maxi Gossamer’s chic and elegant necklace and earrings for Fameshed. They are delicate but still make a statement. My rings from Aikea Rieko are a perfect accompaniment to my look with their elaborate filigree and gems. You get a HUD that allows you to change up the colors of the separate gems, which I love.

Love Birds

I walked out to the beach to find that it looked like a flock of lovebirds had taken nest in my palm trees. Oh wait. They purred and I realized they were KittyCats perched in my palms. KittyCatS recent release of LoveBirdS include a removable beak and crest and come with brightly colored feathers, made for Valentine’s Day but perfect to brighten up your spring after a long winter. Each KittyCat includes a special animation in them, where they will rez you a blanket and special poses so you can enjoy them with a friend.

Love Birds

I enjoyed the warm air in an outfit made of separates from the first anniversary Shiny Shabby. My top from evastika Aura is fitted for Maitreya bodies matched to denim shorts from Systi Cisse, also for Maitreya bodies. Cute bowed flats from Darling Monday come in several colors. A cute little diamond-studded watch from Bob for Shiny Shabby includes a HUD to change various parts of the watch.

Love Birds

Carina Larsen has made this cute and casual ponytail for Shiny Shabby with her great texture-change options. I am wearing Monicuzza Babenco’s gorgeous new applier for Shiny Shabby on the Catwa Annie mesh head in a warm tan. I found my palms at the RFL Home & Garden Expo from Cari McKeenan, who got them out late. The donation from purchase of the trees will go directly to ACS.

Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away.
This year
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special.

Last Christmas–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 14

The jingle jangle of bells in this old Christmas song from my adolescence always reminds me of snow. Gotta love George Michael (and his hair—wow). So I went to snowy Loch Noble to shoot photos of my outfit, which is sort of an awesome look considering the pieces are priced so inexpensively. Well, first there is the jacket which is free in the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar. Sands Leavitt has generously offering this stunning red leather jacket with materials as his little gift to all the calendar clickers, and it comes in several sizes to fit different mesh bodies. Solange Cerveau is offering this itty bitty mini, made to fit several mesh bodies (and it does so on my Maitreya body like skin—not a single clip) for the Winter Gacha Festival. The chain and ornaments around the waist are the “rare” so you can push linden into that machine and always end up with a great prize because the skirt is so great! (And since it’s gacha, giftable. Get one for all your friends!) My awesome hat is Aleida Rhode’s gacha for the Gacha Garden at the Liaison Collaborative. The fur textures are so gorgeous and she has a big decorative safety pin. My long tall boots from Allie Munro are one of her featured pieces for FROST, which has opened. I love their shape and the textures and they are rock bottom priced!

Last Christmas–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 14

Sawsan Secretspy released this lovely skin with several makeups at the Frozzen Fair. The lips are mostly pastel and the makeups a bit smokier, so the look is very sexy when you combine them together. My hair is naminaeko’s exclusive for Hairology. It comes with or without streaks and in a bunch of fantastic colors as well as “naturals.” I especially liked her “glitter” textures. The hair is low profile so it fit perfectly with a little resizing of Aleida’s hat and the textures looked fabulous.

The Last Smile

The Last Smile

“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.” ~ William Cullen Bryant

The Last Smile

Fall came in yesterday just like that. It was balmy out on Monday evening, the air thick with humidity and early the next morning a cold front came through with a storm and chill air and golden sunshine followed it. When I was trying to take these photos and struggling, my friend asked, “What kind of windlight are you hoping for?” I said, “The kind that imbues the scene with sunlight filtered through a thousand autumn leaves, tinting everything with a nostalgic depth and laying upon it its honeyed warmth before the chill winter winds descend.” He sighed. “Try ‘Sunset.’”

My dear friend Sabein Streeter, helped me set up my autumn house, which I will be photoing in pieces because she jam packed it so full of goodness, and I can’t cover it all in one blog. Her wonderful decorating sense was assisted by the many beautiful décor items available this month at Shiny Shabby. We start, of course, on the back stoop, where we find leaves have covered the area via Kunst Himmel and a cart of gourds, courtesy of FadeArcade. A cozy rocking chair from Marinestella waits for a friend to sit but I have just finished riding my bike from Danielestro and am about to go inside. The house? Barnesworth Anubis’ beautiful cottage for Collabor88, more of which you will see in the next days.

The Last Smile

My outfit is a combination of fall and summer. A warm but sexy middriff-skimming sweater from Kiddo Oh at Tres Chic tops short shorts from xxxsaltandpepperxxx, available at the Cosmopolitan Room—both mesh. Long socks from Roslin Petion for My Attci and great little boots from Darling Monday at Shiny Shabby complete the look.

I want to highlight the berries in my hair—a lovely hair pick from Abraxxa Anatine, featured at the Cosmopolitan Room. I pushed it into my hair in front, a celebration of the fruits of fall. The pick has a color change menu on click and is exquisitely crafted in mesh, but not rigged so you can move it around and resize or copy and wear multiple. My hair is one of the wild fusion shades from Kavar Cleanslate, his contribution to Fantasy Collective. And once again I wear Catwa Clip’s lovely Jessica mesh head with a beautiful skin applied from Inka Mexicola , both available at the Cosmopolitan Room.
