Bohemian Like You

Bohemian Like You

Wait
Who’s that guy
Just hanging at your pad
He’s looking kinda bummed
Yeah, you broke up, that’s too bad.
I guess it’s fair if he always pays the rent
And he doesn’t get bent
about sleeping on the couch when I’m there.

‘Cause I like you
yeah I like you
And I’m feeling so bohemian like you

Bohemian Like You

I shuffled around in my inventory and put together this bohemian look today. First I start with the great sweater/tank set from Ariadna Garrigus that comes with a darling mini skirt I chose not to wear. It includes a texture-change HUD with three options for different looks. I paired it with some baggy shorts I got a bit back from Kristabel Ashmoot that include a super-skinny red belt, which provided the pop of color that inspired red tights from Maya Levane. A casual necklace with texture changes for the beads and cord from Maxi Gossamer and awesome boots from Kinu Mayako that include a great HUD and are discounted at Thrift Shop, and I am set with one of those hodgepodge looks that seems to come together somehow.

I think this cute hair with a braid running over the front from Truth Hawks kind of pulls it all together. It’s bohemian and girly and messy and dyed at the ends. And an intensely lined eye from Sawsan Secretspy, her new skin for Suicide Dollz, makes our bohemian girl ready to face the day.

I wanted to congratulate my name doppleganger, Harper Ganesvoort, on SEVEN YEARS of blogging about SL and fashion. Harper has been exploring the grid all this time with intelligence, panache and love for all this time, putting the rest of us to shame with her dedication and enthusiasm. Congratulations, Harper!

What Barely's Wearing Today

Barely walked in yesterday in this ensemble, looking all cool and hip without being aggravatingly hipster. (Well, maybe a little aggravating.) What Barely has going for him is a cool ease, a fine sense of himself, and some freakin’ awesome socks!

What Barely's Wearing Today

He’s kind of a mix between Brad Pitt and Zach Galifianakis and Louis CK.

He’s Ba-ack!

He’s Ba-ack!

He’s back like a bad penny, like a persistent cold sore, like my property tax bill, like dandelions in spring, like tiny little seeds in my raspberry jam that jam themselves in between my teeth and I can’t get them out… well you get the point. Barely Texan has wheedled his way back into my blog.

He's Ba-ack!

Barely’s not about the accolades; he doesn’t care if he glitters or glares or struts. He just cares that he looks cool and reflects a unique sartorial presence—when there aren’t barbecue stains on his sweater.

He's Ba-ack!

Barely graces us with this great ensemble including a cardigan/shirt combo from etham, tweed slacks from Leri Miles, boots from Theosophy and hair from Dura. No droopy pants or ‘tude with Barely. Just head-on casual chic.

He's Ba-ack!

Sensitive Kind

Sensitive Kind

Don’t take her for granted, she has a hard time
Don’t misunderstand her or play with her mind
Treat her so gently, it will pay you in time
You’ve got to know she’s the sensitive kind
Tell her you love her, each and every night
And you will discover she will treat you right

~ “Sensitive Kind” by JJ Cale

Sensitive Kind

JJ Cale’s song is the first I had ever heard about sensitive women. I tend to shy away from that label. I am of Midwestern stoic stock. But the song is lovely and suited this gentle look I donned. Ariadna Garrigus has made a beautiful gown with a texture change HUD so you can have three distinctively different looks out. This one is lace and satin. The others are leather with studs and sparkling sequins. I liked this one the most with the lace bodice, the flowing skirt and the subtle colors. My complex necklace from Paco Pooley is one that he is offering at the Jewelry Fair that creates an elegant piece for this look.

Sensitive Kind

Truth Hawks recently released this gorgeous full ‘do with its loose curls and beautiful textures. It suits this dress so well. And Sawsan Secretspy has just released this gorgeous skin with its refined brows, makeup and sexy details. Perhaps our sensitive kind is worth the attention because she’s so beautiful.

Infatuation

“I was about half in love with her by the time we sat down. That’s the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty… you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are.” ~ JD Salinger

Infatuation

Today I had the distinct honor of speaking to Kaseido Quandry’s class regarding virtuality, my virtual being, etc. After the formal end of the class, I changed over to my piggy avatar and plunked myself down next to one of the students in the class. I flirted with him as Piggy, asking him if he liked girls with “a little ham on their hocks.” The class told me he turned a beet red in class in embarrassment. I had to giggle. I think he was a wee bit infatuated with Piggy. (He was also a good sport.)

Maybe it wasn’t Piggy but how Harper looked before I changed. I wore this cutesexy dress from Mika Nieuport with its color change belt and luscious rich knit textures with her great tights and some sportysexy boots from Gospel Voom to the class (because Kaseido pays close attention to what I wear, I learned). The earthy palette matched my earthy approach to things, I suspect.

Infatuation

A glowing Tuli Asturias skin was touched up with a little magic from Mocksoup Graves, who offers useful and subtle makeups to slightly alter your look in SL. I like that the lips overlay Tuli’s skin without remaking it, the eyeshadows (as I show here) fit perfectly. I accessorized with this gorgeous jewelry from Lynaja Bade. And my long luscious locks are a new offering from Truth Hawks, who injects every one of his hair styles with a bit of sexy.
