Oh Brother–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 16

Oh Brother–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 16

It snowed last year too: I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea. ~ Dylan Thomas

Oh Brother--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 16

This is my brother. Ok, in RL I don’t have a brother but in SL, I have someone who functions as one. Not in that sticky icky hearts and flowers in my profile way. More like that annoying IM me with foolishness and stupid names like “smeg” and “fart blossom.” The one who will trash me one minute and go after anyone who looks at me funny the next. There is, of course, constant bickering and arguments about who is to do what and when. Like shoveling.

Oh Brother--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 16

Of course, my brother needs to be the one who has to go out to do the shoveling. It’s only fair. The pose set from Kay Weston for FROST is more ideally fitted to him (*cough* no one needs to tell him the shovel position can be modifed).  And of course I can sit by sipping my hot cocoa and watching and tell him where he’s missed a spot. It’s the natural order of things.

Oh Brother--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 16

Of course, if he was a little misaimed in throwing the snow, it would hit me and get all over my new sweater, the gift Sanura Snowpaw made for the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar for yesterday. It includes a texture change HUD so you can wear this snowflake in several colors. My tights are stocking appliers from Ashton Tryce at FROST. They are awesome snowflake tights for any holiday outfit. My little boots are one of Chantal Mynx’s creation for FROST. My brother is wearing a horrible Krampus sweater from Parallax and a matching hat that he got on MP. (Because, you know, no reason to be cute and festive. Always have to bring things down, right?)

Oh Brother--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 16

My brother is wearing today’s KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar gift, a beard from ReishiProphet, available in two styles and several hair colors including a tintable beard. (I tried making it green but, yeah, don’t go there.) This is a tattoo layer and is a gift for MEN, who seem to get short shrift in the gift department in SL during the holidays. He is wearing it over the Emerson skin from ReishiProphet but it can be worn with any skin and look just as awesome.

I am sporting Lara Hurley’s lovely new skin with an included winter blush, which is just lovely. I love the brows, lips, eyes. Well I love it all and it’s fantastic on my system shape. Bubbles Clawtooth is featuring two hairs with texture-change hats at Collabor88 with winsome hair styles. Please note brother and sister have the same eyes from Constance Daehlile. We got them from our dad.

Bringing Home the Tree–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 11

Bringing Home the Tree–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 11

“…freshly cut Christmas trees smelling of stars and snow and pine resin – inhale deeply and fill your soul with wintry night…” ~ John Geddes

Bringing Home the Tree--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 11

Loch Noble just reopened their sim and a fresh coat of snow has fallen with more coming down. It’s coated the whole beautiful village with a white blanket and made it perfectly charming and wintery. I took a late morning run over to check out the storefronts and get my tree. (OK, it’s the sim “tree on a car” but work with me here…) I felt very seasonal in Aryiana Novelli’s supposedly ugly sweater for Christmas on 34th Street, though I think it’s absolutely charming with the clever use of multiple translucent layers to make it look soft. Chantal Mynx’s cowl for FROST provides colorful warmth, as do Izzie Button’s tights for TLC. And they matched my boots from Hera Aviatik, which are also for FROST. Pretty earrings from AvaGardner Kungler for this month’s On9 (which I downsized quite a bit) and a berry cluster from Abraxxa Anatine make the whole look seasonal and pretty.

Thank goodness for Mavi Beck’s darling holiday poses for TLC because they worked great for this set of photos. I am wearing Sawsan Secretspy’s new skin for Winter Trend on the Catwa Jessica head and I added shadows from Alaska Metropolitan that she is offering at a rock bottom price at Anybody. I have fallen in love with Constance Daehlie’s eyes for Winter Trend (which you will see over and over for the next few weeks). She offers system and mesh eyes. And the final and most glorious part of my look is Queue Marlowe’s gift for the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar for today—an amazing topknot that includes three different HUDs for your wearing pleasure.

Infinity

Infinity

“And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.” ~ Stephen Chbosky

Infinitely

Art in Hats, benefiting the American Diabetes Association, opened with a plethora of headwear for the stylish avatar, including this hat shaped in a bent lemniscate, which resembled to me, the infinity sign (∞). It’s an elegant, chic headpiece that combines well with the straps echoed in my dress and shoes. The dress, which is an attempted fit to the Maitreya body (close enough), is one of Mariska Simon’s newest, with a lace tied back and a great number of colors for your choice of sexy club wear. The glass platform heels from Azlyn Vaher include a HUD that allows the heart enclosed in the glass to be turned off or on and a sexy tied ankle.

Infinitely

Mea Carnell’s beautiful leather flowered necklace provides a soft point to another otherwise sort of extreme look. I applied Aida Ewing’s recently LeLutka applier release, chose her chic eye and lip makeup and then used Thora Charron’s great hairbase applier and ponytail to complete this very sleek, very chic look.

No Regrets

No Regrets

Tanto que hacer
Hay tanto que hacer
Me siento bien
No hay tiempo que perder
Tanto que ver
Hay tanto que ver
Cuál ser mi hazaña
Al abrir mis pestañas?

~ “No Regrets” by Gaby Moreno

No Regrets

The lyrics of this song translate to, “So much to do/ So much to do/ I´m willing and able/ No time to lose,” and I sure felt that way when a pal visited me this weekend. We raced around seeing things and eating and drinking like bacchanalians and we saw Gaby Moreno open for Calexico in a most awesome concert. I came back to gather up my messages and oops, Shiny Shabby had opened with a ton of great stuff.

Star with this fantastic long sweater with a low cut V-back from Kiddo Oh which is making the tour of all the great blogs (and mine). Available in four colors, with a simple knit texture and sexy silhouette, it will make your autumn evenings warm. I paired it with Senzati0n Domenitzo’s killer heels with their lacy ankle strap and Bastchild Lotus and Paul Lapointe’s lovely necklace for the Body Modification Expo plus Kathya Szczepanski’s HUD-driven ring set.

No Regrets

Sawsan Secretspy has been making appliers like a mad woman lately, and this applier, available at Designer Circle, is a gorgeous look for the Ever mesh head from Lelutka (and probably for any of their mesh heads). With a dark liner, it looked great with Thora Charron’s lashes and I love Mina Nakamura’s new layered ‘do for Tres Chic and its beautiful textures.

My Cherie Amour

My Cherie Amour

My cherie amour, lovely as a summer day
My cherie amour, distant as the milky way
My cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore
You’re the only girl my heart beats for
How I wish that you were mine

~ “My Cherie Amour” by Stevie Wonder

My Cherie Amour

Gosh I love Stevie Wonder singing and the song is perfect for this look, which is smooth and sexy. Start with a minidress from Aikea Reiko in one of her fabulously shimmery fantasy ombre colors. I paired it with shoes from Glamistry, which he has revamped to fit Maitreya feet (yay) and includes his great versatile texture change HUD. Maxi Gossamer’s pretty necklace for Collabor88 completes the look.

My Cherie Amour

My long wavy hair is Shylah Honey’s contribution to The Liaison Collaborative. I love how the textures run through the locks of hair, giving it movement, especially with the highlights. Awesome nail

The big story is, of course, my skin applier, which is Umazuma Metaluna’s exclusive for the Cosmetic Fair. Toned for ladies with darker complexions, it includes some really luscious makeups and is part of a gacha, so it’s wickedly inexpensive. I wear it on the Leda, which was probably my least favorite of the LeLutka heads until I put this skin on it. Now it all works with the luscious lips from Uma and her brilliant makeup.

A Dress is Never Just a Dress

A Dress is Never Just a Dress

In art, a dress is never just a dress; nor in life either. ~ Mason Cooley

A Dress is Never Just a Dress

The Black Fashion Fair is opening tomorrow and it’s 2 sims of a lot of black. Don’t infer this means a lot of goth or darkness (though there is a little of that going on too). Imagine more pieces that are elegant, charming, versatile. For example, this gorgeous gown from Mami Jewell will be her exclusive for the fair. With a great silhouette, a low cut back behind the halter bodice, her wonderful flexi skirts and gorgeous gold accents, this is elegance personified. With glittery black nails from Autumn Amaranth and an onyx stone in a mystical gold mounting from Plurabelle Laszlo, both from the fair and some stylish heels from Glamistry, featured at Kustom 9, this outfit shows how black is the epitome of elegance.

A Dress is Never Just a Dress

Truth Hawks has thankfully come out with a new updo. Honestly, we need more of this kind of glamour on the grid and with beautfully styled curls pulled up and a wavy lock framing the face, it’s bound to be found in many ladies’ wardrobes with their favorite evening gowns. Sawsan Secretspy’s gorgeous skin for 100 Block finishes off this look with her characteristic gorgeous features and beautiful subtle makeup. Remember that the featured items at 100 Block are 50% off and exclusive to the event.
