Thank God I’m a Country Girl

Well, the elections are over and I am none too happy about the results. What I *am* happy about is that we had elections at all and that people exercised their right to vote. I am happy to live in a country where I have the freedom to do this. I spoke to a lady who works at one of the polling places near me and she said her favorite part is seeing 18 year-olds vote for the first time—they are so excited to vote. *I* am still excited to vote.

I put on this country look to remind myself of my American roots. First we start with this darling outfit from Looloo Beck that includes big cabbage roses on a brown field. Looloo has an uncanny knack of making something sexy and innocent all at once—the low slung jeans are not crass because they are offset by the cute little thong and the flower print in the pocket. The low cut blouse’s sexiness is undercut by frilly puffy sleeves.

This new hair from Lamb Bellic made the look. I love the full locks, the casual twist of hair in back, the slightly poof on the crown. This hair also pulls that sexy and innocent trick. One feature that might dissuade some customers—it’s mostly static. It looks great head on in a photo but isn’t great for turning one’s head.

My jewelry is a great little edgy set from Plurabelle Laszlo, who keeps bringing eclectic jewelry to the grid. And my little booties are from LeeZu Baxter—called “Beach Boots,” I think they could suit lots of looks that need something casual. They are warm and comfy.

Country Girl

A fresh blanket of wet snow has fallen (are you tired of my weather reports yet?) I am dreaming of fresh air, green grass, bright bold sunshine. OK, I acknowledge the snow looks pretty, white against the gray of the branches, frosting everything in sugary softness…. But it’s stinkin’ cold!

A trip over to Looloo Beck’s store cured some cabin fever. Between her great sexy clothes and her compelling advertising, Looloo’s store is a place where SL fantasies can begin. In this case, I imagine being a country girl, cheeks glowing with fresh air, and springtime friskiness. Looloo cleverly incorporates sculpty prims with her incredible textures to make an outfit that is at once innocent and sexy with its peekaboo jeans and top.

Underneath the barely buttoned top is a sexysweet bra and panties set with a pretty red-flowered and eyelet print.

I show here a collar from SC Tracy at RFyre, a bit decontextualized (it’s really more gothic than country but heck, it’s barbed wire). SC has been making jewelry and accessories for RFyre that include his great texture and terrific eye for detail. This is being released Wednesday but, well, I get to wear it sooner. Nyah nyah.

With another one of Truth Hawks’ amazing hair styles (how does he do it, week after week?) and Tricky Boucher’s fresh Alyson skin, well I am a country girl ready for kickin’ up a little dust.

And oh my, the boots. JB Gazov has tapped into some sort of lizard brain of mine where all I want to wear are cowgirl boots and two step my way around the grid. I bought the “fatpack” boot, which is scripted to show any of ten colors available. You will be seeing these boots again. They are incredibly textured and sculpted.
