Mouse in the House

I know I dissed elf ears the other day and now I am wearing mouse ears, but honestly? They are cute. This was all about building a look around these ears from Jenova Saeed and hair from Chiaki Xue. It seems Chiaki is taking a fun approach to creation and teaming up with several different Japanese designers to make different looks. I love the results. The ears twitch and have orbiting spirals around them (which are not easily seen in this photo—it’s subtle) and they come in several colors.

I just recently got this skirt, part of a dress set from dirty Adored’s new Themeory offering, and the skirt was so ideal for this look, especially over these stockings from Nena Janus that were a rez day present. I found this top from Vasha Martinek and colored it a bright red to match and donned a great rockabilly tattoo from Antonia Marat. My shoes were a Marketplace find from Ann Otoole because they had that exaggerated style I wanted. I had to hack them to get the invisiprims hidden—Firestorm makes a mess of those. Give us V2 options, designers!

My skin was a recently rez day purchase from Belleza. I love the red lips Tricky Boucher made. Finally, new black eyes from Ikon Innovia. You all wanted different colors but *I* wanted my black eyes. It makes my mouse girl perfect.

When My Thoughts Drift to You

It’s ok some days not to wear high heels and choose something less sophisticated some days. This dress from dirty Adored, which was her offering for the FTLO Hunt, is a perfect example. Vintage, girly, and beautiful in texture and color, it’s a romantic girly alternative to a mini-dress. I love the puffy sleeves—how pretty is that? (Let me pause to make two comments here: 1. I don’t do a lot of hunts, and I certainly don’t blog them, so hunt folks, don’t ask me to blog your hunt. I stumbled upon this item in her store and would have gladly paid for it. 2. I hope dirty DOES do up this dress in other colorways. It’s a great design and shouldn’t be given out for free.)

I paired it with knit socks from Maria Gherardi and cute little comfy warm boots from Riq Graves (which are offered in several colors are are absolutely drop-dead perfectly sculpted and textured).

I wear another beautiful new hair from Elikapeka Tiramisu. Because of the side ponytail, this is kind of a pistol to line up for photos without having it disappear in the shoulder—you’ve been forewarned. Because Elika kindly leaves out resize scripts and leaves her hair modifiable, I was able to tint the Red 05 with a little more orangy-red so my hair popped a little more. Thank you, Elika! Something about Elika being back on the grid makes everything seem all right.

Being Miss Daisy

Midsummer and the daisies are in full bloom!

Being Miss Daisy

The cicadas sawing in the trees and I am writing this blog before I rush off to the pool. I will be wearing a breezy summery dress from dirty Adored with a sweet short skirt with soft floaty prims. With its pretty cotton floral material and buttoned up and buckled top, this has a country flair, perfect for picking daisies. Her textures are rich and evocative. I am looking forward to seeing more from dirty.

I pair it with this darling hat from Reghan Straaf, one of my girlfriends in Hey Girlfriends and a considerable hat maker in SL. Her textures and shapes are unbeatable, and this daisy hat is sure to charm smiles out of even the flowers. I also wear a little daisy on my finger from my dear friend Callie. It has a huge color change stone in the middle (because Callie’s all about the size) which I have made a diamond. I also wear an older hair from Stumbelina Ophelia that has been begging for attention and suits this ensemble perfectly with daisies near the nape of the neck.

Finally, I wear a fresh young skin from Gala Phoenix. Gala, as I have said before, has been in world since the beginning of my time (my first skin was from Gala) and has wisely kept an eye on changing tastes, making skins to suit her customers’ desires and needs.
