“If you wear a short enough skirt, the party will come to you.” ~ Dorothy Parker

In Purple

A short-as-can-be mini dress,and I am hoping to have a party! This great strappy leather dress with a wonderful tie up the back comes from Beanster Potato, a lot of mesh goodness in a very small package. And as always, Beanster includes a texture change HUD for five looks. I matched it up with the heels Glamistry offered for 21 Shoe. You can’t get these colors anymore but you can get this sexy platform shoe at his store. My unicorn horn from Maxi Gossamer for this month’s Collabor88 is my favorite piece of luck.

Shylah Honey made this fabulous hair for the Fantasy Collective and with its literally flowing locks, it is perfect for mermaids but also for a girl who is going out and wants a little fun in her look, especially with dyed ends. Sawsan Secretspy has made this gorgeous skin for the Designers Circle. I put it on and the dewy skin, the soft and glossy lips, the exquisite eyes—they begged me to take them out to party. I did!

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” ~ W.B. Yeats

Magic

I wanted to share this beautiful dress because it has a certain magic. Kiddo Oh creates her own custom mesh and has translated her skills to making absolutely gorgeous evening gowns, combining translucent laces with frills and satin. I am so lucky to be showing this gown because it is a review copy of only 100 that will be sold at the Luxury Fashion Fair, where all the pieces being sold are limited. This is an awfully gorgeous piece to be limited to 100 on the grid with the lace top, pink buttons running down the back, pink satin ribbon around the waist and skirt and beautiful frills, and all this done completely in mesh!

Magic

Nicole Egozy has finally come out with her newest skin and it’s absolutely gorgeous. With fine, exquisite features, the skin includes a ton of appliers (though none for favorite mesh bodies—yet). She also includes a variety of tattoos with cleavage, eyebrows, hair bases, and other layers to help match mesh pieces to the body. I added an eyeliner to dress up the skin, which is a gorgeous palette for makeup layers. Kikunosuke Eel has had a sale going on, which I ran to, of course, because he will be retiring pieces soon. I am not sure if this set of earrings is included, but make sure you get there. And MissAllSunday Lemon’s lovely side-swept curls is an elegant alternative to wearing an updo with a formal dress. I chose this pretty pink to highlight the colors of the ensemble.

Diana

Diana

Diana, she loves me
No innocence or compromise
Diana, she loves me
The only way she knows

~ “Diana” by Paolo Nutini

Diana

This sexy, sophisticated song seems to match the look I put together for today, so let’s call her “Diana.” First is Harry Hyx’s on spot top, a constructed tunic, sleeveless and belted in front with a graphically appealing open back and asymmetric hemline. This mesh piece is wonderfully rigged and fits very well with a great alpha. Underneath I chose wide-leg slacks from Datrip Blackbart, which he will have at the next Showroom. New boots from Senzati0n Domenitzo, discounted at this month’s Thrift Shop, finish the look.

Diana

Umazuma Metaluna’s newest skin as the most arresting eyes, verging on a beautiful maturity that gives the skin a ton of character and reveals a woman of substance, not just a pretty princess. With Uma’s characteristic sensuously full lips (which I adored with her customizable lipstick from another set), the skin includes a beautiful hairbase and her lush skin tones. Truth Hawks just came out with another wavy long style, with curls corkscrewing down beautifully with his lovely textures. And Maxi Gossamer presents this artistic set of jewelry at Collabor88, a fatpack in one with her texture change scripts.

What Barely's Wearing Today

Barely swears to me this look gets the chicks. I can kinda see why. There’s the studied insouciance, the combination of patterns and a sort of funky warm masculinity that shows a touch of boyishness and vulnerability, which is so Barely.

Caught in the Wild

Caught in the Wild

“So, I ask you. Who is the happier elf? She who has braved the seas of life and risked everything, or she who has stood upon the shore and merely existed?” (based on a quote by Hunter S. Thompson)

Caught in the Wild

As it’s known, sometimes I am too lazy to do my own blog so I pull in another avatar who has a fabulous look to stand in for me. Today I feature the avatar Omenapu, who so kindly offered to pose for me and write something up.

She is a tribal elf, wandering the demilitarized territory between two great civilizations. Stealing and hunting to make a living, and rarely mixing with humanity.

Much of this outfit was created by the masterful Pucca Firecaster, whose texturing and design of all things fantasy is second to none. And just begs to be layered and mixed.

 

Caught in the Wild

Don’t be afraid to play with attachments and mix-and-match accessories to achieve a style. Custom tinting is very easy to do on moddable items and can be all you need to tie an outfit together.

I tend to use only moddable items when making an outfit in SL. Very often, I will see a particular part of an item that I like, but do not necessarily care to use the whole item. I’ll edit a face and make parts invisible, and link and attach things in places for which they were not designed, just to get that certain je ne sais quoi.

Precious

Precious

But not me, baby, I’m too precious

~ “Precious” by the Pretenders

Diana

Barely said this Pretenders song suited my look, and I agreed. Start with the short belted fur coat and leather pants from Ariadna Garrigus, a sort of high fashion look with an uptown downtown fur coat with zippers at the ankles of the super skinny pants. I wore Senzati0n Domenitzo’s awesome ankle boots with this look, loving how the zippers align. My necklace is one of the prizes in the Blood Letters Hunt from MadPea, offered by Maxi Gossamer. It’s an adult story (so not for child avatars, thanks), and this necklace suits the sexy noir story perfectly.

Diana

A new skin from Sawsan Secretspy, with luscious glimmering lips, has been made smoky with the addition of an eye makeup from Joanna1 Lewsey (thanks, K!). That little beauty mark on the lip makes it, in my opinion. My hair is a great cut from MissAllSunday Lemon for the Xiasumi School Festival. I am positive she meant it as a much more innocent style (school, right?), but it looks so perfect for this ensemble, echoing Chrissie Hynde or Joan Jett. I love a layered style like this!

Seduction Involves Elegance

Seduction Involves Elegance

Seduction involves
elegance and has the goal
of pleasing others.

~ Letter From France | François Hollande: Casanova or Lout? by Elaine Sciolino in the New York Times

Seduction Involves Elegance

The New York Times has a brilliant haiku generator on their site (http://haiku.nytimes.com/) that pulls lines from their stories and makes haiku from them. I grabbed the lead haiku from it.

I thought it suited this sophisticated look from GraceHaddington, a mesh pantsuit with an open cut back. Grace buys up mesh templates and sprinkles them with gorgeous textures, great styling and her own magic fairy dust (including a great texture-change HUD), and supports a large business with several other junior designers. Her prices are always reasonable and her output prolific. You can walk in any day of the week and find scads of new fashions, priced inexpensively.

Seduction Involves Elegance

I wore with this a new jewelry set made by Zuri Lyric in collaboration with Poulet Koenkamp. With a gorgeous set of bejeweled pearls that drops down the back and matching bracelet and earrings, the pieces come with Zuri’s texture-change scripts and are pure luxe.

I wore a super-sophisticated and sexy skin from Sawsan Secretspy that she recently had at Boho Culture but now in her store. I added the FREE lipstick Zxxrysa Magic is offering for the Dirty Turkey Hunt at her store. My short hair do is a new one from Chiaki Xue, who still makes short sassy cuts fashionable.
