Feelin’ the Blues

The title of this post is not about being depressed. It’s a ploy to tell you about the great blues you can hear on the grid. First there is Hotlanta, where folks like Bradley Gazov spin the blues (he’s there Monday and Friday nights, fyi). Then there is the Savoy Jazz Club, where I have caught Hy Gynoid doing his thing. (I remember a night of raunchy women’s songs once we got him going.. ha!) And then there is Crossroads, where a gorgeous DJane, BluJns Benoir, kicks it. Or the infamous Junkyard Blues Club where I have caught some smokin hot sets from Fiery Otaared. Feelin’ blue? There’s a place on the grid for you.

What to wear to a club but something like this—short, sexy and blue. Eclectic Wingtip has recently brought some pieces out of her closet that are sexy and slinky. I really like this dress for it’s simplicity. Dress it up or dress it down—it’s a palette upon which you can add many looks.

Tuli Asturias is having a sale on skins right now. You can grab this beauty for half price if you scoot over to her sim. My hair is one of Truth Hawks’ newest with a daring streak. I chose to go Bonnie Raitt white to match the blues theme here.

My boots are from Gin Galtier, who is coming out with this winter set that will NOT keep your toes warm. However, this is the going look nowadays and really meant for a girl clubbing. The scrunchy legwarmer makes this “winter.” Gin did a great job knitting these up in a cable stitch.

Summer’s Here!

Hearing the tornado siren last night, seeing 88 on the car thermometer, and feeling the splash of pool water while the kids at the local pool took turns doing cannonballs, it finally sunk in that summer is here! The impatiens in my window boxes are flourishing, the tomato plant in the Topsy Turvy is already prehistorically huge, and everyone smells like sunscreen. Yay!

Summer's Here

I wear a top as bright as the bright blue sunny sky and cute Madras shorts from Magen Jigsaw. I threw on a bunch of turquoise jewelry—it seems to fit. I absolutely love this necklace and earring set from Abraxxa Anatine. The textures are spot on—the mottled turquoise and shiny tigers eye with onyx spacers and hand worked metal links.

Summer's Here

A glowing skin from Tuli Asturius, high ponytail from Truth Hawks (with color-change barrettes), and flip flops from Emma Gilmour and all’s good.

Pass me the sweet tea, please….
