Everything Nice

The KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar is full of gorgeous gifts today. One of them is this beautiful holiday gown from StellaJane, mesh with a beautiful cut and a gorgeous velvet texture with subtle starbursts, perfect for winter celebrations, even after Christmas. And it’s a GIFT so get it from the calendar today. Or run down to their store and get another gift dress, which she asked me to model for the ad.

I dressed up my look with another gift from Zuri Lyric and Poulet Koenkamp, a gorgeous jewelry set that includes texture change for the gems and metal. I loved playing with the color combos and found a perfect set of gems for this look, and that translated to the earrings and bracelet automatically. My shoes were Eku Zhong’s offering for the 21Shoe, which is over now but I know Eku will bring out these shapes in other colors, so get over there to grab them.

Everything Nice

I love this new loose curl ‘do from Sabina Gully. It has an old-fashioned glamour to it and her characteristic loose locks and swirls of hair. Her HUD has a range from blonde to dark so you can switch it up as you like. My skin is one of Sawsan Secretspy’s lovely, soft sexy looks with a beautiful makeup and luscious lips. I wore it this time with her applier on the Belleza body. It’s a great match and a perfect skin for this sexy, elegant look.

It wasn’t the blackness of your hair
nor the brown beneath your eyes,
it was the passion of your
kisses that enchained me.

Saya Littlething has made a beautiful line of mesh flamenco gowns, so of course I need to wear one because flamenco is one of my favorite things. With a beautiful lace texture and ruffles going up the legs and across the decolletage, the gown is a lovely piece of work and moves well. (I was dancing with it to test—for the sake of my lovely readers, of course.) I wore gorgeous strappy shoes from Eku Zhong that were made for Slink feet but with minimal moving, fit the Belleza body just fine.

I am wearing one of Sawsan Secretspy’s newest skins, this one made for the Black Dot Event. I love the elegance of this one with its classic makeups and beautiful brows. I have matched it to the Belleza mesh body and it looks pretty seamless. Truth Hawks made this tumbled curly ‘do for the Uber event, a very good choice for the event as it’s sexy and classic all at once. Sometimes long hair is not necessary for sexy.

Love in the Time of Cholera

Love in the Time of Cholera

“To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else’s heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter. He had not missed a single one of her gestures, not one of the indications of her character, but he did not dare approach her for fear of destroying the spell.”  ~ Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

Love in the Time of Cholera

I’ve been holding on to this quote for a bit for a look that makes me fall in love, and this one did. It’s the colors of the dress from Spooky Mistwallow, and the style. Spooky includes a HUD that allows switches between 6 colors on the dress and 6 on the skirt, all complimentary for the palette you choose, and I loe this brown set. The style of the dress is flirty and soft and sophisticated, especially belted at the waist.

Well maybe it’s the shoes really that I really love. Strappy and sexy, they are one of two pairs that Eku Zhong is selling for 21 Shoe, and they are ONLY ON SALE TODAY, the 21st, so do not delay in getting them. Eku is a quiet one, making her sexy shoes and softly putting them out for shoe warriors to snatch up and sex up the grid.

Love in the Time of Cholera

It’s the skin. That is key here. Umazuma Metaluna has outdone herself on this one. The tone of the skin, the freckles, the features, the beautiful full lips, groomed eyebrows, gentle blush. I gasped when I saw myself. This may not be a look for everyone. It’s certainly not your typical dolly face. Uma has imbued this face with character and beauty.

It might be the eyes. I have been showing a lot of Constance Daehlie’s eyes and makeup and I am completely in love with these dark brown peepers. It’s hard to do a brown eye right, and she pulls it off by giving light to the eyes.

Then perhaps it’s the hair. I loved this short cut from Miu Edman when it premiered at Hair Fair and ran to get the brown for this ensemble. I personally LOVE short hair on women and wish I could pull it off myself. It’s a great style to show off these ginormous earrings from Donatela Couturier.

Aubergine

Aubergine

“How can people say they don’t eat eggplant when God loves the color and the French love the name? I don’t understand.” ~ Jeff Smith

Aubergine

Eggplants are about to come into season, and I am prepared. The French word  for eggplant is, of course, “aubergine,” a much more luscious and beautiful word for their deep purple color. This dress made me think of that word. The color is not as blue black purple as aubergine; it’s more a bordeaux but this is not a blog entry about wine. It’s about eggplant.

I love this new dress from Harry Hyx because it’s sleek and structured and beautifully tailored to fit. The design lines in the texture add high style and the criss-crossed straps that don’t quite lay flat and have a believable dimensionality. I accessorized with high heels from Eku Zhong, made to fit the SLink feet, that have a gorgeous gold texture, and earrings from AvaGardner Kungler.

Aubergine

I ran over to the Cosmetic Fair Beach Party (which is indoors, so don’t worry about wearing sunscreen), and I found that Stasey Oller has put out this lovely skin for blondes. I have not always picked up on her work because bright pink glossy lipstick is not my thing, but this skin is a great palette for such or for more subtle looks. I chose one of her glossy lips to wear with it, sheer and without teeth. I know people like parted lips but they are very hard to pull off right. My hair is Truth Hawks’ newest for men but also fitted for women. His textures are, as always, luscious and this style really looks great on women who can pull off short hair.

Tell Me Something Good

Tell Me Something Good

Tell me something good (tell me, tell me, tell me)
Tell me that you love me
Tell me something good (tell me, tell me, tell me)
Tell me that you like it, yeah

~ “Tell Me Something Good” by Rufus, featuring Chaka Khan

Tell Me Something Good

I am not covering my ears here because I want you to tell me something good. I will tell YOU something good. LacunaInc have put out these absolutely drop dead sexy separates at My Attic this month, and wow. I love how LacunaInc uses bold graphics to get her point across, combining them with great easy silhouettes. She cleverly sells these separately, so if you want to mix and match with other pieces or change up the colors, you can.

My shoes are also something good I can tell you about though considering how late I am blogging this, you might get mad at me. They are one of the two pairs Eku Zhong is featuring for the 21 Shoe this month. (I really hate this one-day-only sale thing but what are you gonna do? Call it 21 and 22 Shoe? Hm….) You have to drop what you are doing RIGHT NOW and run to her store to get the shoes if it’s still the 21st. They are sexy, fashionable and gorgeous.

Tell Me Something Good

My hair is Kattington’s newest for Kustom 9, a great poofy rockabilly-inspired updo with shaved sides. I chose to wear a hairbase from Maddox DuPont and eyeliner from Shyla Diggs to lend a little more edginess to the look. Big bold earrings with texture change from Ryca Doobie (the biggest in big earrings in SL) and of course, Aida Ewing’s bright red lips on her skin for Collabor88. Hope I told you something good. Now you tell ME something good!

Tell Me Something Good

Got no time is what you’re known to say
I’ll make you wish there were 48 hours to each day
Problem is you ain’t been loved like you should
What I got to give will sure ’nuff do you good

Magic

Magic

Call it magic
Call it true
Call it magic
When I’m with you

~ “Magic” by Coldplay

Magic

The sun outside seems like magic after such a long winter. Now if it would just warm up. I don’t care really—gotta show some leg and with this mini from GraceHaddington I can do just that. Grace is featuring this at DOPE Fashion Week, which is ending soon so get down there to find some sexy and elegant urban fashions. (Found my darling earrings from Adrianne Stormcrow there cheap.) Grace, as always, includes a texture-change HUD and I was able to choose the top and skirt separately. And the price is right! Paired with absolutely sexy slingbacks from Eku Zhong and a handbag from Grace, also with texture-change HUD, I am ready to step out and enjoy magic!

Magic

The real magic is this gorgeous skin from Steffi Villota that I got a few weeks back and am finally showing. I love the elegance of Steffi’s skins, the gentle blush and lovely features. She includes colorable layers that allow you to make your own makeup. In this case I made a pretty pink lip and I have blue shadow, which you can only partially see through Hays Uriza’s texture change glasses. Click on the glasses and find a variety of lens translucencies and tints to customize your look. Finally, find this chic and short ‘do from Mirja Mills, which looks great on men (well devastatingly sexy, actually) and short and sassy on women. And once again, like magic that I look great!

Magic

Wanna fall
I fall so far
I wanna fall
I fall so hard
And I call it magic
And I call it true
I call it magic

Romance for Dummies

Romance for Dummies

”Nothing spoils a romance so much as a sense of humor in the woman.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Romance for Dummies

I met him at a party. He was seated alone in front of the fireplace. At first he seemed a little wooden, a bit stiff. He responded slowly—I guessed he had a lot of girls in his IMs. We chatted a while.  He had that suaveness, those cool, distant, unmoving eyes, suggestive of a strong man deep in thought. Turns out he was a model, which impressed me. He said he posed mostly for artists but I could see his hard abdomen and broad shoulders suited him for so much more.

Romance for Dummies

As the evening wore on, we got closer and closer. “You know, Harper,” he said, putting his hand on mine, “I think we have a lot in common. I’m a model. You’re a model. I’m a poser. You’re a poser.” (I had to think about that for a moment but took it as a compliment.) “I would like to get to know you,” he smiled, or I think he did.

Romance for Dummies

I wrapped my hands around his and we talked deeply for hours. “You know, Harper, I think you get me. You’re different from the other women. You don’t treat me like a dummy, to pose and change, and make me do what you want.” At this tender moment I had to click the last animation in the sofa….

Romance for Dummies

And make him kiss me, a long deep soulful kiss, one that wore the varnish off each other and revealed our true grain.

Romance for Dummies

This romance has been embellished with several lovely items, including the sexy dress Poulet Koenkamp is featuring at the Monochromatic Fair. I have worn it to several parties with this long necklace from Maxi Gossamer, feeling very chic. I ran out at the stroke of midnight last night to get Eku Zhong’s new shoes for the 21 Shoe event. It’s ridiculously only 24 hours, so get shopping TODAY.

I highly encourage you to find McChris Flanagan’s gacha at Erotigacha, where I got the set of lamps I show on the mantle. They are animated and so dang fun and cute. Some swing their legs, some open and close so the books fall or their lampshades bow down. I am absolutely fascinated with them. Kay Weston’s posing dummies can be found at yard sales near you or at her store. And the art dummy avatar from Sylvia Cuthbertsson Blunt wore for me in these photos  can be found on Marketplace. Finally, find this awesome kissing sofa from Warmanimations Lisa at Erotigacha.

“The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender.” ~ Emil Ludwig
