Tangerine – she is all they claim
With her eyes of night and lips as bright as flame
Tangerine – when she dances by
Senoritas stare and caballeros sigh

The best part of living in SL is living like you are in the Lives of the Rich and Famous. Today I prepared for a dinner party out in my conservatory from Cory Edo for Uber, With tables and chairs Cory did for the same event (with a ton of great textures as you can see and wonderful poses, PG and Adult), I made my tables with a couple of Kaerri Rae’s great table settings and some wine. Sash Arabello has a great gacha at Shiny Shabby with pieces for the traveler including the rug I show and the pretty candles. Cube Republic is featuring the bonsai and hosta at Shiny Shabby as well.

Tangerine

For my dinner party, I wore one of Poulet Koenkamp’s new and sexy dresses, this one featured at her store, and accessorized with a little choker she has at the Chapter Four. I love that Poulet loves colorand  the geometric cutouts on this dress add a little interest. Fringed heels from Fhara Acacia for the Dressing Room include a color change HUD for different versions.

Tangerine

Kuranosuke Kamachi’s long sexy hair for Uber is a perfect accompaniment to this look. Sawsan Secretspy is featuring this skin applier at the Designer Circle and I am really impressed with how great it looks on the Catwa Destiny head (my favorite).

Manhattan Avenue

Manhattan Avenue

Oh but dreams come true on
Manhattan Avenue

~ “Manhattan Avenue” by Nellie McKay

Manhattan Avenue

The setting for this grouping of furniture from the RFL Home & Garden Expo and the first anniversary Shiny Shabby is deep in the city with Nellie McKay’s satin voice. Stephen came over and gave me a tutorial in color theory in decorating, starting with the deep purple sofa and chairs Victor Newchurch made as his donation items for the Expo. With yogjio’s deco fireplace as the centerpiece and Tess Spargel’s mirror over the mantle (both donation items), we accessorized with Piraiyah Novikov’s glamorous pieces for his gacha at the Expo. I clothed the windows with the city view with curtains from Piraiyah for Shiny Shabby (which I tinted slightly), and I topped the mantle with finials from Elsa Wellesley’s gacha at Shiny Shabby. Kaerri Rae makes some of the most beautiful flower arrangements in SL, and this orchid is one of her donation items for the Expo. (She also happens to be one of the hard-working organizers, with her partner Cain Maven and bestie Reven Rosca, for the Expo). I thought Synnaria Vlodovic’s gothic chandelier with purple roses might add a kind of a eclectic addition to the décor.

Manhattan Avenue

My Manhattan cosmopolitan might be dressed up for a night out in Hilly Haalan’s sexy mini with a color change HUD that allows me to tint the main dress a blackberry with fuchsia insets and pink studs. The one dress could provide hundreds of combos with such versatility. My jewelry is Mea Carnell’s contribution to Cosmopolitan Room, studded with rhinestones. Senzati0n Domenitzo’s sexy shoes for Shiny Shabby complete my look.

Manhattan Avenue

Monicuzza Babenco has created a gorgeous applier for the Catwa mesh heads for Shiny Shabby this round, and I spent some time messing with eye makeup and lipstick to make this look. VivienMarli’s beautiful and barely controlled tumble of curls gives a wildness to this chic Manhattanite’s sexy look.

The Aptitude to Fly

The Aptitude to Fly

“A power of Butterfly must be –
The Aptitude to fly
Meadows of Majesty concedes
And easy Sweeps of Sky -”
― Emily Dickinson

The Aptitude to Fly

The EB Awareness Event started yesterday and was quite a success with a full sim and lots of people shopping. Epidermolysis Bullosa is a rare disease that affects 1 in 50,000 children born throughout the world as a result of a genetic disorder. It varies in severity among its sufferers. It is characterized by a defect between the anchoring of the skin between the epidermis (top layer of skin) and the dermis (second layer). People who suffer from EB suffer from skin fragility, blistering and constant pain. “Butterfly Children” is what kids with the disorder are called due to the fragility of their skin so a lot of the décor sold at the fair has butterflies on it.

Kaerri Rae has made an entire set of furniture with monarch butterflies as the motif especially for this event with a large chunk of her income going to DEBRA of America. She offers two sets: one in white with dark gray accents and one in dark gray with white accents. Depending on your décor, you can choose a set and use the pieces with your own existing furniture. I set up two little nooks to show the set, and I included a few other pieces that will be sold at the EB Awareness event, including a darling lamp from Plato Novo.

 

 

The Aptitude to Fly

My sweater is also being sold at the event, a generous offer from Parallax Resident. The sweater comes with a texture-change HUD for some great sweater options. I have seen this in the men’s version too and it’s terrific. Portions of the sale of this sweater go to DEBRA of America. My jeans are a pair of great bell bottoms that Datrip Blackbart has at the Vintage  & Cool fair in several colors. My shoes, which I adjusted to my Slink feet, are from Renee Harvy and can be worn without the feet. My handbag is one of the gacha items at Miffhoi Rosca’s kiosk at Season’s Story.

Mochi Milena did an amazing job on the extensive skins she created for this month’s androgynous theme at Genre. I already knew that she put considerable effort into creating options for fembois and women who want cleavage and makeups. I really appreciate that Mochi offers these options to people who want to explore their identity. My hair is Mina Nakamura’s latest for the Dressing Room Fusion and so perfect for the season with a texture change hat as well as the mesh hair. Love this look!

Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze

“I guess I felt attached to my weakness. My pain and suffering too. Summer light, the smell of a breeze, the sound of cicadas – if I like these things, why should I apologize?” ~  Haruki Murakami, A Wild Sheep Chase

Summer Breeze

Kaerri Rae has given us a little summer breeze, in the form of a pavilion, a little inside for the outside or a little outside for the inside in the form of a limited edition set she has made for Casa. The pavilion itself comes with the fireplace (already set), the inset cushioned seat, the furniture, plants and décor. I intentionally set the whole scene without any other decoration so you can see exactly what comes with this. And it’s limited edition—only 15 will be sold at Casa, so make your way there now.

Summer Breeze

I had a seat next to the talking parrot (seriously—he talks) to show you my great little plaid dress from Kinu Mayako that she is featuring at District 5. She actually has a tie-dyed version and a floral version too, but this one conveniently comes with a HUD so you can choose which plaid you like. My shoes are from Erratic Rain’s collection and the pink fit this look so well, I had to wear them.

Summer Breeze

TOmmy Fairplay put out a group gift at District 5 for women and men, and this is the women’s. It’s a casual updo, messy enough for breezes on an open pavilion but still elegant. My skin is one of Shyla Diggs’ newer ones in her typical gorgeous style, and I discovered Mavi Beck’s nail applier gacha at District 5 when I was poking around and lost a lot of change!

An Irrevocable Condition

An Irrevocable Condition

“Perhaps home is not a place but simply an irrevocable condition.” ~ James Baldwin

An Irrevocable Condition

Tobias Convair believes in home and he knows his stuff. His latest release, the Pinewood Cottage, which he is selling at FaMESHed at a rock bottom price, is his American interpretation of home, an arts and crafts style bungalow which would find a safe place in many neighborhoods around the U.S. With a cozy floorplan that allows for small furniture groupings and an intimate upstairs space with room for a bedroom with fireplace, master bath and office, it’s a sort of archetype of the American dream and where else but SL would one best indulge that dream?

I located the house on my parcel overlooking the Linden seas with a late afternoon light falling in the windows to match the shadows and sunlight Tobias baked in and furnished it with pieces I have collected and new furnishings out for sale right now.

An Irrevocable Condition

Start with the casual room to the side. With flowing curtains from Isabeau Baragula that I used throughout the house, I put down Tya Fallingbridge’s darling rattan collection for FaMESHed, which would be great in a room like this or the kind of outdoor living room that is so popular here right now. With beautifully coordinated textiles, pillows and blankets, the set has a versatility with several sitting poses per chair.

An Irrevocable Condition

The casual dining room is furnished with Cherelle Capra’s blue and light wood furnishings that she sold at the Monochromatic Fair but which are now in her main store. Coordinated with several funky accessories (the retro clock and hanging lights), the set brightens up the house, giving a casual homey feel to the kitchen.

An Irrevocable Condition

Cory Edo has made this formal dining room set for FaMESHed, which I have accessorized with Sway Dench’s gorgeous Moroccan carved screen and one of Tya Fallingbridge’s curved chandeliers. Cory provides the full compliment for a beautiful dining room including captains chairs with several texture change options, dining chairs, a gorgeously designed arts and crafts influenced table and separate dining pieces including place settings with color change scripts. A set of candles from Spooky Mistwallow’s RP store creates an elegant ambience to the scene.

An Irrevocable Condition

I found pieces with an East Asian influence from Kaerri Rae in my inventory to place in front of the cozy fireplace that Tobias has included with the house. Tobias’ fireplace set, sold separately at his store, fills the hearth with a warm glow while a floor cushion recently purchased from Wendy Xeno provides a space for singles or couples to cozy up by the fire.

An Irrevocable Condition

In my own home in SL there is no reason to dress up or flounce around in ball gowns. I chose separates from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus so I could color change to make a harmonious combination and accessorized with Maxi Gossamer’s latest offerings at FaMESHed. My lovely skin is Umazuma Metaluna’s newest piece, a lovely Asian skin with freckles sprinkled across the nose and a high ponytail from Circe Ishtari, drawn up with a scrunchie, completes my look.

An Irrevocable Condition

Spread Your Wings

Spread Your Wings

Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Fly abandonedly into the sun
If you should return to me
We truly were meant to be
So spread your wings and fly
Butterfly

~ “Butterfly” by Mariah Carey

Spread Your Wings

Soon the butterflies will be out, flitting around flowers, spreading joy. I can’t wait. In the meantime, I can fill my home with colors and butterflies, specifically this furniture Kaerri Rae is selling at the EB Awareness Event with part of the proceeds going to Debra of America for research into Epidermolysis Bullosa. I wrote about the disease and a classmate who had it yesterday, but as I was listening to this song by Mariah Carey, I was thinking about the bravery of the parents of such children. The song talks about letting some you love spread their wings and fly and for a parent of a child who is so easily injured, what a leap of faith to let their butterfly out into the dangerous world. That’s why support of the patients of EB is so important. It would be wonderful to see these Butterfly Children fly.

I wear Ivy Burner’s darling sun dress for the Monochromatic Fair. This is a kind of essential party piece in my mind—perfect for casual dances, beach parties or shopping. The flowered texture is almost retro and the lined hem and belt makes the dress pop. My shoes from Pill Kanto are his interpretation of pumps with a open sole, which he is selling at L’accessoires. (Shouldn’t it be “Les accessoires”? I keep getting tripped up by this.)

Spread Your Wings

My fresh and beautiful skin from Sawsan Secretspy was a natural for this look. The pale red lips, the gorgeously lined eyes with a touch of yellow give my red dress a bit of glamour and a little retro touch. With Circe Ishtari’s newest hair, a combo updo ponytail with click-to-tint color menu, this pretty red ensemble compliments the butterfly décor.

Spread Your Wings

So flutter through the sky
Butterfly
Spread your wings and fly
