Sugar Buzz

Sugar Buzz

Oh, sweet thing,
You’re just like a Sugar Buzz
Doing to me just what sugar does.
The heart is full as it ever was,
I so high like I was on some devil’s drug
You lift me up straight to the top
Suspended bliss until I drop.

~ “Sugar Buzz” by K.D.Lang and the Siss Boom Bang

Sugar Buzz

Taking a break from story-telling to share a song I have been listening to over and over and a look, something so sweet it gives ME a sugar buzz. I start with a new vintage dress from Neferia Abel, the queen of fashion history in SL (well at least for the 20th century). This simple little pink frock is the basis of my sweet look, accompanied by platform shoes from Cerberus Noel (with a color change rose!) and pink gloves from Jill Lemon (who has, indeed, reopened though you won’t find these gloves at her new store).

Sugar Buzz

Ponytails from Truth Hawks give me a girl-like attitude and one of Gala Phoenix’s new lustrous summer skins provides a sweet and pretty complexion. Sachi Vixen has come out with a set of glittery, glitzy eyeshadows and I wear one here, which is the sugar on top of an already pretty sweet look.

Sugar Buzz

Can’t get enough,
Can’t get enough!
I can’t live without it.
Can’t get enough!
What this love does to me, sugar buzz?

A Spot of Pink

As the clocks fall forward (and we gain an hour of sleep), the skies will suddenly appear dark early in my part of the world. So a bright spot of pink on an outfit lends cheer and brilliance.

A Spot of Pink

Joy Laperrier and Magnifico Miggins have recently opened a lovely sim called Euphoria which contains some of the grid’s best shopping. Included with the shopping is a rewards program based on purchases made on the sim. Hit the minimums and you begin to feel the pleasure of being a valued customer by getting discounts on your purchases. This dress by Azure Electrictooth is an exclusive item on Euphoria sim. With its retro styling and beautiful satiny skirt, it’s definitely a must-have.

A Spot of Pink

I love this retro hair from Kin Keiko with this look. A girl wearing a dress like this doesn’t need something loose and sexy. She needs something just a tinge done up, a little uptight. My skin is from Kira Ahn’s line, which may still be on sale if you get there fast enough.

A Spot of Pink

I love the line of these pumps and the amazing textures. (Check the seam on the inner side of the shoe—now that’s accuracy.) Cici Vonderheide offers these absolutely drop dead platform pumps in a full compliment of colors. I love the contemporary shape.

21st Century Flapper

In the 1920s, flappers were young women who dressed in a certain style (typically a bob, a thin columnar dress reminisced of Greek fashion, ruby red bow lips and the high heels with the chunky soles that were the fashion of the time). They were a new sort of woman—more liberated than their sisters, more apt to having a good time and flaunting their new sexual powers. It was a sign of the times.

21st Century Flapper

I’m dressed in a sweet little dress that doesn’t quite fit the flapper image. (I see it being a little more 50s-influenced than 20s.) That doesn’t mean a flapper in the 21st century—a postmodern flapper—couldn’t wear it. Made by Jill Lemon, this cute ensemble comes complete with lacy skirt and tights, cuffed three-quarter length sleeves, and cute bowed gloves.

21st Century Flapper

The skin is another from the Julie series by Mallory Cowen. I’m having a hard time taking them off with their sweet full bowed lips and glowing skin. I wear a cloche hat over a modified bob from Bubbles Clawtooth. The bob, a haircut originated from “bobbing” a young woman’s low-tied ponytail so the back hair was in an even line with the front, gets a reworking into a longer style here.Tiffy Vella’s vintage beads mix in well with the outfit.

21st Century Flapper

Finally we have a pair of “Victorian” ankle boots from Elven Dreamscape. With the close attention to the stitching and laces, the boots are a piece of virtual art.
