“Baby, you’re much too fast…”

~ “Little Red Corvette” by Prince

Little Red Corvette

My second car was a red car. It was kind of a piece of crap but I liked to imagine the color made it cooler than it was. They I went through a series of red cars because I was a kind of red car girl (Baby, I’m much too fast). When I put this outfit on from Onyx Leshelle for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, I though it would go well with a car wash theme (body suit under short cut-offs) but my photos ended up being more pin-up than car wash. The outfit fits absolutely perfectly, of course, and the textures are amazing. The top and shorts both come with texture-change HUDs. I ran to Darling Monday’s sale to get a part of cute sandals to go with the outfit.

Brandon Papp makes the prettiest skins when he makes them. It’s not a full-time job for him so when he comes out with a new skin, it’s great news! I put this beautiful look on the LeLutka Lotte head and it was a gorgeous look. With magical eyes from Lonlysoule, I have a smouldering look just for a red car. I added the pretty side braid Kuranosuke Kamachi has made for the Enchantment event. Though it was made for “Dorothy” from the Wizard of Oz, it is quite versatile and sexy and looks marvelous here.

A Walk Outside

A Walk Outside

Which came first
The love or the love song?
Which is more important
In the long run?

~ “A Walk Outside” by Butterfly Boucher

A Walk Outside

I took a walk outside at Templemore in a cute dress from Ariadna Garrigus, a short number that includes a texture change HUD. Not all the hems are scalloped like this one on the HUD—Ariadna offers a lot of different looks and choices plus a number of colors. It’s a bargain. The other bargain I am wearing are Hilly Haalan’s heels, which include a ton of colors for changes on different parts of the shoe so you can mix it up and make it all work with your outfit.

A Walk Outside

There are still quite a few people who are not sold on mesh heads yet, and that’s ok. Umazuma Metaluna has released a set of skins for The Forest. I included a liner Uma had made for some previous skins but otherwise have not touched the skin and wear it on my normal shape. It has beautiful brows and lips as with all of Uma’s skins. Tabata Jewell is offering this darling hair for Hairology, one that is a youthful and rather unique in this world of big Brazilian blow outs. I really love it!

Orange You Glad

… I didn’t say banana?

Orange You Glad

Baby, it’s hot outside so I am inside but still feeling the heat. This minidress from Mami Jewell raises the temperature, especially in this hot color. (And what has happened to color in SL and photos? I am sick of all the gray, washed out stuff lately.) So yeah, orange makes me glad, especially with matching shoes from Ashleey Andrew from Romp and the darling jewelry Maxi Gossamer has at Collabor88.

Orange You Glad

As usual, Thora Charron has outdone herself with hair she is selling at Hair Fair with a portion of each going for Wigs for Kids. How can you resist this sexy wavy look, so nicely done it outclasses the other looks like this on the grid by miles.

Orange You Glad

Or try a classic wavy look….

Orange You Glad

Get disco with this wild and amazing look….

Orange You Glad

Or buck the status quo with a jeweled snood. Get them all at Hair Fair and help kids who want to live a normal life.

There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can’t prove that there aren’t any, so shouldn’t we be agnostic with respect to fairies? ~ Richard Dawkins

Believing

KittyCatS recently came out with a new line of kitties that are based on fantasy with unicorn horns. Called KittyCornS, they are darling little kitties with great patterns and a sparkling horn. KittyCats has even made two that are tributes to David Bowie and Prince (see the “Purple Rain” kitty below). When you breed two KittyCornS, you get a special kitten!

Believing

Of course, this fairy is dancing through the fields when she comes upon these magical KittyCornS. She kneels down and finds they are sweet and gentle and just as fantastic as she is. It seems the theme for Enchantment this round has inspired many creators, including Erielle Deschanel and Mariska Simons, who made this fairy-themed lingerie with matching wings and headpiece. The wings and headpiece come with comprehensive HUDs that allow you to switch out colors on the tendrils, flowers, etc. The lingerie comes with a lace bodysuit (great lingerie on its own or with another outfit) and the beautifully fit corset and skirt (which are separate pieces for mix and match with other outfits too). I accessorized with Mea Carnell’s darling daisy jewelry and flat sandals from Senzati0n Domenitzo, also featured at Enchantment.

Believing

Wavy curly fantasy hair is Luka Hauster’s perfect offering for Hairology. With knotted bits and gently waves flowing down, it’s a gorgeous look for my fairy, especially with Umazuma Metaluna’s skin applier on the Karin head from LeLutka for the Ultra Event. I added Monicuzza Babenco’s fantasy lipstick, the rare prize at the Gacha Garden, to light up the pink in my look.

Waiting, but I don’t mind
I’m all bus stops and heat
I’m neon in your daylight

Optimist

When you see the buds on the trees, Radiohead drops a new song, sunshine arrives, you can’t help but be an optimist. I put together a casual, about-town outfit and strolled the streets of St. Pete’s City. My top and jacket are Ariadne Garrigus’ newest separate with a texture change HUD for the top and sweatshirt. She gives you a ton of cute patterns and solids for the top. I matched them up with the funky harem-style pants from AscendSL that comes with a color-change HUD and bejeweled sandals from Lilo Denimore, both featured at Shiny Shabby. Aikea Reiko has a selection of darling embossed handbags and Empyreanforge has a terrific bracelet set with texture change HUD at Shiny Shabby.

Queue Marlowe is bringing this great ponytail back from the Fantasy Faire and putting it in her store soon.

Weather changes moods
Spring is here again

~ “In Bloom” as done by Sturgill Simpson

In Bloom

Spring is springing up all over this side of the world, and it’s very welcome. It was a Game of Thrones kind of winter. I took a walk on the Gates of Dreams sim, which has bloomed for spring too, in a new outfit I assembled from separates. First, I wear Hilly Haalan’s darling mesh top which includes a ton of mix and match textures for the elements of the top like the trim, bow, and inside. My jeans are pastel goodness from Poulet Koenkamp (they also come in more jewel tones) and have a great HUD for choosing the belt and stud colors. My shoes are Senzati0n Domenitzo’s pretty pair for Shiny Shabby, which opened today. My poses from Katya Valeska are also available at Shiny Shabby.

In Bloom

I always love the looks Umazuma Metaluna comes up with for different appliers, and this time is no exception. She has created a freckled beauty for the LeLutka mesh heads. I added no makeup to the face—it was perfect “as is” for this look. However, I did use Uma’s freckle add-on HUD for the Maitreya mesh body. It cleverly applies freckles over the clothing layer so you can match your skin tone to your freckled face. Lovespun’s lovely hair for Hairology is a casual look that suits my springtime outlook and a hand full of rings from Sigifaust, made for Shiny Shabby as a gacha, completes my look.
