Pedestrian at Best

Put me on a pedestal and I’ll only disappoint you
Tell me I’m exceptional, I promise to exploit you
Give me all your money, and I’ll make some origami, honey
I think you’re a joke, but I don’t find you very funny

~ “Pedestrian at Best” by Courtney Barnett

Pedestrian at Best

I love this new song from Courtney Barnett, all punk and funny with a sweet touch of girly. I thought it suited this look, a lot of which I got at Thrift Shop 8.0. First, Cruella Pennell has made this fabulous dress from two different mesh templates, but she has made so much of these templates, one can hardly even think of what may have been made before. She has finitely and exquisitely textured these pieces with a pattern and leather insets. Putting the two together seems an effortless decision and pulling them together with such great texture work is ingenious. Best part? They are discounted at Thrift Shop 8.0! With these fabulous little booties from Senzati0n Domenitzo also from Thrift Shop, it’s a look that falls together.

I wanted to up the gothiness of the look without going overboard so Inka Mexicola’s beautiful skin for OMGacha combined with deep dark lips from Constance Daehlie that she is featuring at AnyBody plus Constance’s dark eyes makes a beautiful face, pale and glowing with the contrasting darkness without being chalky or dead. Kavar Cleanslate’s beautiful new ‘do for Collabor88 with a side-pulled ponytail and his fabulous new textures completes this beautiful gothy look.

“Clever as the Devil and twice as pretty.” ~  Holly Black

Clever

The 100 Block is still going on and there are some drop dead sexy things, including Kehl Razor’s dress/top with its great texture change HUD. It comes in a solid, which I show here, and with an illustrated front and what makes it so dang sexy are the slashes through the fabric, the little ties at the side and sleeves (which can be color-changed separately from the top), and the slinky shape which is only possible in mesh. He hit the critical length to make this sexy alone (just barely covers the bottom) or great with pants. I had to wear it with Eboni Khan’s 21 Shoes exclusive boots, which will be off sale in a couple hours, so GO get them ASAP.

Clever

I always feel very sexy in skins from Shyla Diggs and Tricky Boucher. Shyla has a great sense of makeup colors and shading so that the skin comes off as sophisticated and classy. My tousled hair from Mirja Mills is her latest and comes with her special texture-change HUD with her lush delicious textures.

Rogan Diesel has come out with this sexy pose chaise at the Pose Fair 2014. Rogan has a lot of ideas about what makes a lady sexy, and he expresses them perfectly with his gorgeous pose props. The beautiful lines of the chair would make it ideal as a piece of furniture in a boudoir but the poses make it something fantastic and make me look clever as the Devil.

A Good Man, Understand?

A Good Man, Understand?

I’ve traveled for miles around
Seems like everybody wanna put me down
Because I’m a bluesman
But I’m a good man, understand

I went down to the bus station
Look upon the wall
My money is too light people
Couldn’t go no where at all
I’m a bluesman
But I’m a good man, understand

The burden that I carry, oh is so heavy
It seems like ain’t nobody in this great big world
That would wanna, wanna help old B.
Hey, but I’ll, I would be all right people
Just give me a break, good things come
To those who wait, and I’ve waited a long time
I’m a bluesman
But I’m a good man, understand

~ “Blues Man” by B.B. King

A Good Man, Understand?

The lyrics are not about me—they are about a good man I met through SL who changed my trajectory in SL in the best way possible. Dirk Talamasca, the original Land Baron, the blues man, the Black Hat, mentor, and original FIC, is terribly ill right now. His brother has been sending reports via Dirk’s account in Facebook and has said Dirk has taken a turn for the worse. If you’re an oldbie in SL like me, you knew Dirk, probably personally as I did. He rented land to people, he mentored, he argued, he encouraged, AND he flirted shamelessly. He was a strong, lively personality that helped shape the SL we all know in so many ways no one will ever be able to list them all. I feel so unable to articulate Dirk’s importance to SL, to the community, to what we all have become. Take my word for it—he’s a big deal.

So this post is dedicated to Dirk with a blues song and a sexy look because, frankly, Dirk never shied away from enjoying being a man.

I start the look with this sexy dress from Kim Lysette at LivGlam from the K Collection. The dress comes with a HUD with 20 different textures on it so when you purchase it, you basically get the ultimate fat pack. The mesh fits well—I barely had to modify my shape for it to fit me to a T. Sexy high heeled shoes from Eboni Khan make my legs look long. (Please note, I am wearing size S feet and they fit the shoe perfectly. I can not guarantee if you use a different sized Slink foot that they will fit as well.) I used green polish on my fingernails and pink the on toenails, both from the same HUD set from Sasy Scarborough. My jewelry is one of the sets Maxi Gossamer is offering at Collabor88 with color change stones.

A Good Man, Understand?

Umazuma Metaluna is premiering this gorgeous, luscious skin at Skin Fair 2014. With bee stung lips and a blushing countenance, Uma offers the skin in 8 tones with blush and glow layers and a unique set of lip tattoos that come in different intensities so you can custom color them using the SL editor to your pleasure. I tinted my lips with a very slight orange, aiming for a natural coral.

My eye makeup is one of the bold looks that Madrid Solo is selling at Skin Fair 2014. As per her usual work, the colors are bold and arresting but not garish. The eyeliner gives a special sexiness to this look. The set includes 15 eyeshadows and 14 lipsticks.

Finally, Mirja Mills has released this gorgeous, pulled back hair with a combo of mesh and flexi prims. Paired with the widow’s peak hairbase she includes, it’s a gorgeous look with sexy curly locks.

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

Wanton

Wanton

“Fie, fie upon her!
There’s language in her eye, her cheek, her lip,
Nay, her foot speaks; her wanton spirits look out
At every joint and motive of her body.”

~ William Shakespeare

Wanton

I’m feeling a bit wanton these days, imagining spring coming. Datrip Blackbart sent over a collection of body-conscious clothes, and I had to burst out in color and curves to enjoy his fine texture work. He has issued two sets of clothes, one being this catsuit with breast and ass appliers. Click click away and I am sheathed in a tight orange suit, laced up the back, with bodaciousness front and back. I purposefully accessorized with Ariadne Garrigus’ exclusive sunglasses for The Feeling so you were NOT looking at my eyes. Dangerously high platform heels from Nuria Augapfel and Claire Messenger make my legs impossibly long and of course I have enhanced with breasts from Riann Maltese and athletic legs from CK Winx.

Wanton

I had to show Shyla Boucher’s Arcade skin again with the lip gloss she sends along with it. It’s the sexiest skin for a look like this, especially with that subtle gloss. Truth Hawks just released this sensuous, wind tossed hair. He is getting better with mesh, the individual strands breaking free to curl and curve around. And my sexiest poses are always the ones from Rogan Diesel.

Appreciate

Appreciate

Lift up your head
And remember what your life is
Don’t have to give it all away
When you’re left for dead
In the middle of a crisis
You must appreciate the day

~ “Appreciate” by Paul McCartney

Appreciate

My quote is sent out to a friend who has received some bad news, and I want to give him some encouragement. It feels like there is a lot of bad news we receive from friends in SL but the truth is that if we appreciated what we have more, we would *hear* the good news too. The other night a friend who has not been on SL for a while logged on and had the BEST news for me. He had met a beautiful woman in RL and they had gotten married. He spammed me with wedding photos and gosh he was right—she IS beautiful.

None of that is pertinent to this look except the cheer I wish to evoke with the look. Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus have come out with a new leather jacket that can have the tank top or not. Both have color-change HUDs and of course, the colors are coordinated with their other pieces, so I wore their more recent skirt release with its absolutely fabulous tushie. (Paul, please consult the mesh ass people and show them how to do it?) The textures are typical L&B—lush, nuanced, perfectly shadowed and tangible. I want to run my hands all over myself just looking at this jacket. And the snakeskin top is amazing. Add great capris from Ivy Burner (who is also a mistress of texture), gorgeous jewelry from Maxi Gossamer, and funky stilettos from NikkiIrene and I have a great look!

Appreciate

I couldn’t help but put on Queue Marlowe’s whimsical hair from Collabor88. As a friend said, How does it do that? Queue won’t do something unless it’s fun and doesn’t let a bad day EVER get her down, which is why it’s always good to have her around, even if it’s in her hair. My skin is Peachiemuah’s newest doll skin with dimples, soft features and pretty eyes. A touch of lipstick from Mocksoup Graves brightens the natural-toned face. Peachiemuah’s skins come with appliers, so you can wear your Slink hands and feet as I did.

Finally, a shout out to my pal, Rogan Diesel, who has finally given us some more girl poses. Keep it up, sunshine!

Appreciate

There’s something there
But you’re frightened to invite it

And be certain you don’t fight it
You must appreciate the day

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.

Love’s in Need of Love Today

Love's in Need of Love Today

Good morn or evening friends
Here’s your friendly announcer
I have serious news to pass on to every-body
What I’m about to say
Could mean the world’s disaster
Could change your joy and laughter to tears and pain

It’s that
Love’s in need of love today
Don’t delay
Send yours in right away
Hate’s goin’ round
Breaking many hearts
Stop it please
Before it’s gone too far

~ “Love’s in Need of Love Today” by Stevie Wonder

Love's in Need of Love Today

Heard this on KCRW this morning and thought it was a great reminder cased in a beautiful song and luscious voice. And I felt love, true love, when Zaara Kohime came out with this dress today. In this dress you see great design and beauty combined. First start with the colors and texture—rich, textured, glorious. I can feel a million little silkworms working their magic to make the fine threads that were woven. I can feel the weight and quality of this fabric and the labor of the finest Indian artisans who wove it. I can detect the scent of the dressmaker’s perfume, the designer’s first sketch leading to this gorgeous piece. Wear it with materials turned on and you just go, “Wow!”

Love's in Need of Love Today

Lest you think I am waxing poetic over nothing here, let me point out the design. Zaara did her own mesh and did it wonderfully. She has cleverly made the silhouette of a lady with a perfect peek-a-boo at the calf, a nice simple wraparound at the bust and a form-fitting mesh that moves gracefully with the avatar. Combining the perfect alpha with great rigging is the secret here. There is no bump in the hip as it transitions from waist to hip (which I see a lot in mesh dresses) or a weirdly shaped rear-end. She even gets the transition of the fabric as is wraps around built into the mesh. I feel as exhilarated wearing this as I do driving my friend’s Audi—fine engineering and beauty give me chills.

Love's in Need of Love Today

This is why I had to style this dress with Truth Hawk’s newest hair, also a piece of beauty and fine engineering. He has finally got his HUD, his vendors, his textures down pat. Now he can send out pretty things for us to enjoy. I really have to hand it to Truth—he has never sat back on his success and let himself become obsolete as a result. H’es always seeking ways to make things better for his customers.

Izzie Button’s beautiful new skin at the Liaison Collaborative was my choice today. With several brow options, cleavage, eye makeups and lipsticks all in one pack, it’s a bargain and perfect for this elegant look. And I had to don AvaGardnerKungler’s gorgeous work again because nothing suits a beautiful dress as much as elegant and well-done jewelry. Finally, shoes with a lace overlay from Eboni Khan for Siddean Munro’s feet from Collabor88  pull it all together.

It’s a perfect moment with this look to tell you all about Harper Ganesvoort’s 5th Annual Oscar Fashion Photo Contest has started and runs until March 2. Harper funds the prizes herself and not with income from SL, so I think you would all agree the 28,500L in prizes promised so far is incredibly generous. This gown *hint*hint* would be an ideal choice for a photo.

Love's in Need of Love Today

People you know that
Love’s in need of love today
love’s in need of love today
Don’t delay
don’t de-lay
