“Music is … A higher revelation than all Wisdom & Philosophy” ― Ludwig van Beethoven


I named this one Sonata because I was preparing this blog entry while I was at the House of Sakura, listening to the selections Lynn Mimistrobell chose for the evening. Every Sunday night, Lynn hosts a salon where she presents music, typically classical, and gives a lesson about the music, discussing its history, particularities and why she especially likes it. This evening she presented two Beethoven sonatas, hence the name of the blog. It’s an incredibly relaxing and enjoyable way to spend a Sunday evening, and Lynn clearly works very hard on her presentation.

The idea of a sonata suits this dress well as it’s a structured long piece of played music. Poulet Koenkamp has structured this dress based on classical notions of an evening gown—long, elegant, elaborate. Poulet has made this mesh gown with a beautiful satin texture, embroidered with gold in this instance (she has several colors of the gown) and hemmed in black to echo the black waist.

AvaGardner Kungler’s gorgeous necklace for La Metallique Fair brings out the richness in the embroidery. I couldn’t resist showing this piece, which is stunning with its almost art deco setting and large gems. My gold shoes are Tiffy Vella’s lovely stilettos for La Metallique, with color change gems on the decoration. I love the texture. She is offering several colors but this is the exclusive to the fair.


Shylah Honey made this beautiful long hair for the Fantasy Collective. TOmmy Fairplay recently cooked up some new textures, which they have incorporated into this hair. With feathered bangs creating a coy sexy look, it frames the new face from Shyla Diggs’ latest skin beautifully. Shyla is presenting this version of the skin at the Liaison Collective for their Route 66 theme. With a deep tan, it’s perfect for girls on the road in the summer sunshine. It’s also lovely for an evening out.

One of my favorite teachers in high school was Ms. Mathews, who taught forensics and English. She had her wavy hair cut asymmetrically, she smoked, she wore Chanel perfume, she taught me about Mother Jones and Louis Vuitton (at a time when LV was not mainstream).


This outfit from Geryn Sloane reminded me of her. The dress, done with an eclectic texture, has a sexy off-the shoulder sleeve, ingeniously created with sculpty prims. The skirt flows gracefully and swirls around the legs with grace. It’s the kind of eclectic dress Ms. Mathews would have worn—sexy, a wee bit hippie.


Autumn Hykova is cranking out hair. This cute ‘do was a find in the Poop Hunt on Dove Swanson’s sim. I love its shape and the sweet messy curl that goes towards the face. It was more than generous of Autumn to hand out such a well done piece but sometimes it’s a benefit to a creator to do that. I certainly went back to her store and spent money after seeing the pieces she gave out.

Saiyge Lotus has made some terrific and out of the ordinary jewelry for Balderdash. I have always loved eclectic jewelry. I have a necklace similar to this one in my personal real life jewelry box, with charms and findings hanging off it. I was delighted to find this in world.


The t-strap shoe is a classic. Tesla Mills has created an updated platform sole version, elegant and fun. The “Redhot” name for the color is entirely appropriate and the texture is dead on leather. Wow!


This is for you, Ms. Mathews!
