September Song

September Song

“The autumn leaves blew over the moonlit pavement in such a way as to make the girl who was moving there seem fixed to a sliding walk, letting the motion of the wind and the leaves carry her forward. […] The trees overhead made a great sound of letting down their dry rain.”~  Ray Bradbury

My pal Frenchy25, a terrific photographer, caught me wandering around St. Pete’s City, looking at NevaCrystall’s newest sim, and he played paparazzi (or so he said) and captured a shot, which I show above. I was pretty impressed he caught me because I was stumbling around, trying to settle on a spot for a photo—hard to do because they are so many great spots on this decorative sim. For this photo, I chose Poulet Koenkamp’s gorgeous new jacket for The Instruments, available in several different prints with solids. Poulet does not always make her own mesh but she does such fabulous textures, it really doesn’t matter. Her texture work puts her head and shoulders above many. My skirt is Kiddo Oh’s fashionable and well-fitting find at Tres Chic, custom mesh fitted perfectly to the Maitreya body. And my boots from Sora Tatham for Shiny Shabby are also fitted to the Maitreya body and perfect for an autumn outfit.

Catwa Clip recently came out with her new mesh head which includes expressions and makeup possibilities (which I hope to feature on another blog). I put Umazuma Metaluna’s beautiful new skin just for this mesh head on , clicked my makeup choice into place, and discovered a beautiful woman. With Uma’s wonderful eyes for this month’s Cosmetic Fair, I made a soulful beauty. Both Nikohl Hax and xxxsaltandpepperxxx off eclectic jewelry at this month’s Shiny Shabby, both in custom mesh.

Leather Power

Leather Power

My uniform is leather and my power is my age. ~ KISS

Leather Power

When I don leather, even in SL, I feel a sudden surge of power. Not sure what it is—wearing the skin of an animal, the smell, the squeak. Today I feel especially powerful as all the pieces I wear were made for the Maitreya Lara body and fit perfectly so I spent less time adjusting my shape and alphas and more time playing. Start with the corset top from Tatyana Ultsch, which comes with a texture-change HUD with an assortment of colors for the main leather (belts always black). Then add the harness mesh pants Paul Lapointe and BastChild Lotus just released, especially fitted to the body. With their elaborate HUD, you can change the color of the main leather, the color of the harness, and the metal. I clicked around to find a look I liked then put on Glamistry’s higher than high heeled pumps with their own brilliant clicky texture-change HUD. Accessories like the color from Sora Tatham at Shiny Shabby and Tatyana Ultsch’s cuffs complete this look.

Leather Power

I donned one of AtomicSparkle Skytower’s newer skins with brows and lips and used her body applier to fit everything together. With Audrey Lamede’s new eyes for The Men’s Dept, I think I made a pretty but intense look, which is what you want your best leather-wearing powerful woman to have. Jourdanmcmillan’s sexy side-swept hair, on which I applied an ombre texture, completes the look perfectly.

Cherry Bomb

When I was looking up songs for this blog, I found photos of Lita Ford today and man, she looks darn good! I hope I can be a cherry bomb at her age! That being said, I tried to make a bomb of a girl today with this dress from Tatyana Ultsch that includes a texture-change HUD for all sorts of choices. Matched with these spicy chic shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo for Shiny Shabby and the simple and sexy infinity choker from Sora Tatham, this look is the bomb.

Cherry Bomb

MissAllSunday Lemon released this sexy hairdo with bangs at her store, and I would say the bangs make the look, especially over this LeLutka mesh head with its sexy eyes. Even sexier is the applier from Sachi Vixen with separate makeup elements that I played with until I got this hot look. Because of the great HUD for the head itself, I was able to adjust the intensity of the eyeshadow and give it a lighter touch, which was my preference, but I left the lips intense and sexy. Sachi has also made appliers for the Maitreya body

My Bodyguard

My Bodyguard

A blond in a red dress can do without introductions–but not without a bodyguard. ~ Rona Jaffe

The Bodyguard

Allow me to introduce myself and my bodyguard, tucked under my skirt, lending intrigue to this look. Start with the darling dress from ValentinaEvangelista, styled with a full ruffled skirt and decolletage, which is deceivingly low. I paired it with sexy heels from Senzati0n Domenitzo and a choker from Takuya Jinn, which are both exclusives at Shiny Shabby, and of course a blade in a garter from Sion Bedrosian.

The Bodyguard

My gorgeous skin is Shyla Diggs’ exclusive for the upcoming Uber, a gorgeous, almost vintage look with luscious lips, beautifully defined brows (even in blonde) and her always gorgeous features. And I love the new hair Mirja Mills is featuring at My Attic. For a very low price, you can get this vintage ‘do with a texture change HUD, each featuring several tones. This one’s a keeper!

What Barely’s Wearing Today

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.

Black is Always the New Black

Are you tired of that whole thing.. “Brown is the new black, gray is the new black, red is the new black.” Guess what? Black is the new black.

Black is the New Black

Or so Takuya Jinn and Marie Lauridsen would have us think. I combo’ed these two sensational pieces into one outfit to show how well black comes off. (It is also a lot more forgiving for designers and for wearers—hides a lot of sins and we don’t have dandruff in SL, so that’s never a problem.)

Takuya’s top, which comes complete with the silver chain you see, is a useful number as it comes as a regular long-sleeved turtleneck, a cropped long sleeve piece, and the sleeveless one you see here. I would tell Takuya that normally ladies wear their necklace tucked under the turtleneck but other than that, it’s great work.

Black is the New Black

Marie’s harem pants are super funky with a great silhouette. Wear them with a dressed up turtleneck or wear them down with a hoodie. They are versatile and have a different sort of look than jeans or pants. (And they show off my fabulous gams, provided here by Tricky Boucher).

Black is the New Black

The glasses and ring are exquisite pieces from Aslan Kish. They are really for the avatar herself—one spends quite a lot of time gazing at the infinitely tiny prims making up the ring and glasses—prims that are not that noticeable from far away. The shape of the glasses is fantastic.

Finally boots from Onyx LeShelle, a sort of second generation after her first sets that introduced great sculpty work with luscious suede-y textures to the grid. These repeat the formula with a  fashion-forward silhouette. They have been out a while, but they are still great. (We at A Passion for Virtual Fashion are not about the newest things. We are about the best things.)
