Queen

Ever meet a woman with magnificence? It’s the only word I can think of—magnificence. She’s a queen. She’s strong, quiet, commanding.

I found the outfit for such a queen at Isaura Simon’s store. With her beautifully drawn textures (especially the gems wrapping around the torso and the motif gem piece), Isaura knows how to dress a powerful woman. Her garments say she owns this place. This ensemble comes complete with the staff which has a mini AO built in that includes poses such as the one you see above.

Isaura carefully constructs her skirts with tiered prims and a close-up look will show gems falling off the shoulder pads—an incredible touch. Her system pieces are clean—no ghosting and a very gently rendered drop shadow to give more depth to the piece. The bra and panties underneath include a brilliant sparkling texture. It all works.

I wear hair from Sky Everett. Sky has been quiet as of late—producing but not spending a lot of time in SL, it seems. We miss you Sky :( Isn’t this hair magnificent?

I forewent the shoes sold with the outfit to go with some wonderfully detailed shoes from Rosie Lavochkin. Not only did Rosie include the signs of the zodiac across the main strap, but she imprints the big toenail with a gem and builds a shoe that is sexily strappy. (Check out the swirly on the heel.) These shoes are for women who mean business.

Precious

I’m not gonna sit around
And waste
My precious divine energy
Trying to explain
And being ashamed of things
You think are wrong with me

I read an article about Esperanza Spalding this evening and fell in love with a song by her, so this blog, having nothing to do with the song but written while I listened to her, is named “Precious.” It’s a song some women should pay attention to. Frankly, I have no idea how a woman like Esperanza could possibly even come up with these lyrics—she is absolutely amazing. (Please note these lyrics do not apply to my own life, so don’t think too hard about it. My divine energy is rarely wasted ;))

Precious

Nicky Ree’s latest little mini, a piece of pure purple and pink perfection, highlights one of Nicky’s “things”—using gradients of lovely harmonizing colors to create a dress that is silky and light seeming. Her flirty and sexy prims do not stray into trampy territory—her ideal woman is sexy and classy at once.

Precious

I am wearing the new and beautiful skin by Pompeja Rossini, another woman who doesn’t waste her divine energy. A real life make up artist, Pompeja lends her skills to making a strong and sexy woman through her skins. Pompeja has done the immense work of taking her artistry of working on real life people and translating it through Photoshop to apply on human-form meshes. You can see she has accomplished no small feat when you view her work.

Precious

Finally, I donned these sexy shoes from Babette Ultsch. With their sexy high heels, absolutely amazingly gorgeous textures (Babette does the best silver shoe texture, bar none), and usability, these shoes are for the woman who wants pretty pink toes without the high price tag (and fat-looking ankle).

All you got was me/ And that’s all that I can be
