You can try the best you can
If you try the best you can
The best you can is good enough

~ Radiohead, “Optimistic”


I am writing this while listening to Radiohead and in pure bliss. It’s a beautiful day out, I have new headphones, I got a full night’s sleep and I have some cute clothes! Today’s summer-kissed outfit features, first of all, patched jeans from Dick Wiesel. With their cute but sexy look and variable patches (depending on what color you get), they are a great go-to for a more colorful jeans look. (Dick named these “Cherry Pie” after the Warrant song. Way to play the age card, Dick!)

My top is a frilly beautiful from Maria Gherardi. These are available in several colors but I had to hunt her store down because the main store sim is gone. My shoes are older but no less amazing mules from Fallingwater Cellardoor.


My tan lines come courtesy of Monicuzza Babenco, who takes tan one step sexier with a bikini line. (I had to show the lines—it’s really nicely done). The makeup is sensuous and fresh. My mane is courtesy of Truth Hawks, who has not yet run out of sexy women’s names for his hair.


The best you can is good enough….

Elegant Houndstooth

A visit to the Modavia Fashion Week last week filled my inventory with several wonderful pieces. Designers are out in full force, making beautiful, inspired clothes.

Houndstooth Elegance

Sassy Pessoa showed this innovative and stylish gown as part of her new collection. The silhouette is not unique—we have seen the bustled dress before. But with its unique houndstooth texture over a random splattered texture, it makes a very fashion-conscious and artistic dress.

Houndstooth Elegance

I am wearing a great skin from Nicole Button, one that is meant for a woman of color. The skin, clearly photo-sourced, is a very beautiful representation for a woman who wants to look more Latina or African-American. Most of her skins are for that market and they share the same lusciousness.

I wore a great necklace from Emiko Harvey at Twinkleberry. Her building is well done and modern in this necklace. She has sweeter pieces available as well. LGM Jun has very reasonably-priced, very fun hair at Junwave. This one is a great updo, and I got it on sale recently for half price.

Houndstooth Elegance

The shoes are from another of my favorites—Maitreya. The Verve pumps have a sleek and fashionable line that will carry one from this season to the next.
