Venus Fly

I love being so fly, pink and purple, soft and sexy. Ariadna Garrigus’ gorgeous new dress with a versatile texture change HUD fits the bill. I am especially happy that it fits the Belleza Isis body. I am disappointed that so many creators have not chosen to work with the Belleza bodies—the Isis is very sexy and curvy in the right ways and this dress, all my “assets” are shown to their best advantage. I was able to mix and match colors on Celena Galli’s shoes for this round of Mesh Body Addicts to make everything match up.

I wish Shyla Diggs was issuing more skins and appliers. She does the most perfectly beautiful looks with subtle makeups, sensuous creamy skins and an absolutely gorgeous body. If I had a skin I would choose to wear every day to look beautiful, it would most definitely be Shyla’s. With the Destiny Catwa head, it looks absolutely perfect, especially with Shyla’s sexy makeups. I chose to wear Mina Nakamura’s long center-parted hair because the textures are so terrific and the color is a gorgeous blond. I am so fly!

Day Tripper

The season has started for day trips, a little drive in the car out to the country or The Mill, a pretty little sim with many whimsical country scenes for photoing. I wore a chic little summertime outfit. First Hilly Haalan has made this halter top with pretty bow belt with her awesome texture change HUD where she offers a bazillion combinations of color on different parts of the top. I paired it with jeans from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus, which have been fitted to bodies like the Maitreya Lara body. With texture change for the jeans and the belt separately, it’s a versatile look. Senzati0n Domenitzo’s super cute and sexy sandals with woven platforms. My handbag is Roslyakova’s featured piece for the upcoming Vintage Fair.

Deesselle Destiny has made this pretty skin for the Vintage Fair. With little moles and pretty brows, it’s a natural skin. She includes some great makeup add-ons with liner and red lipstick. I wore Glamistry’s cute sunglasses for driving and pushed them up with his great script. Long wavy locks from Mina Nakamura completes my casual summer look, her feature at Fameshed this month. What a gorgeous blonde texture!

I’m actually good
Can’t help it if we’re tilted

~ “Tilted” by Christine and the Queens

Coachella is coming up, and I am pretty excited because they have a pretty good website with live performances on it. My partner in SL lives kind of close to the event so some day I hope I can actually go and mingle among the kids. (We’ll likely be the very oldest people there.) My weekly music dude, Clark at Noon Pacific, has a little page up with recommendations with a guide to Coachella, which includes Christine and the Queens and one of their songs I particularly like.

I remixed my Coachella look with some recent event items, including a darling top from Kinu Mayako for 100 Block that holds particular interest for me because I have been crocheting a lot of granny squares lately. It’s sexy and bohemian and matched Paul Lapointe’s and Bastchild Lotus’ recently redone capris, fitted to several mesh bodies. I accessorized with a darling necklace from Ors Quan and Sigifaust’s great ring gacha set that includes a texture change HUD for any and all of the rings as a rare, both available at Shiny Shabby. Glamistry recently came out with these higher than high heel boots that include a stiletto heel (which in retrospect would be impossible to wear at Coachella but look cute with this outfit).

Tilted

I chose Oytebis’ skin for Shiny Shabby because I thought the smudged eye makeup under the eyes was idea for a girl who is wandering Coachella at all hours. It’s a few long days and nights outside and who has time to attend to her makeup? The great thing about Oytebis’ skins is that she includes appliers for nearly every kind of mesh head with them as well as system skins, all in one HUD (except TMP, which you can request from the HUD). A floppy hat to keep out the sun from Rucy Byron comes with a texture change HUD and fits on Mina Nakamura’s hair perfectly. The two designers hooked up to offer this great look at Epiphany, and I am glad they did because it’s almost impossible to get a hat to fit hair—this time they did it for us!

Coeur de Parisienne

Coeur de Parisienne

Toute seule, hélas! je suis désormais
Et pourtant je croyais
Lire dans ses yeux qu’il m’aimait

~ “Coeur de Parisienne” by Rufus Wainwright

Couer de Parisienne

If you don’t think women in Paris wear high high heels, you are so wrong. I have been there twice and have seen women traipse through the cobblestone streets in the most death defying shoes imaginable. I have also seen them wearing fur coats over short dresses. This blog is entirely true. Kalopsia’s new Paris Je T’Aime region, absolutely gorgeously laid out and rendered, is the scene of my virtual Paris, and my love affair with the city has been renewed.

That being said, my cute little knit dress is one of Asia Rae’s newest, a smexy knit dress in great warm shades (I chose chocolate). Topping is a full fur coat from Cocoro Lemon for Shiny Shabby, an unabashed nod to luxury for this delicious city. Jewelry is a simple set from Monicuzza Babenco for The Dressing Room. And my shoes are a pair from Glamistry, completely impractical, completely sexy.

Couer de Parisienne

Sawsan Secretspy is out to please all her customers, so she makes appliers for mesh heads but she appreciates not everyone wants to own one. So she is still putting out beautiful system skins for the ladies who want variety in their look. My ponytail is Mina Nakamura’s for Hairology, which is opening today, giving long bangs to peek out from and a casual elegance for a walk through Paris.

Evening Stroll

Evening Stroll

Nothing like a nighttime stroll to give you ideas. ~ J.K. Rowling

Evening Stroll

I took a stroll in the snow after a party the other evening. I felt pretty and festive during this week between Christmas and New Year especially with my new coat from Ariadna Garrigus, which comes with a texture change HUD that includes several gorgeous looks. I opted for the safe red with black to match my pretty little shoes from Apple May, which are her exclusive at Shiny Shabby. The only downfall to these shoes? They only are available for Slink feet. I got a pretty neck bow from Jellyroll on MP to echo the whole black bow thing I have going on and have a spiffy handbag from Aikea Rieko for Shiny Shabby.

Evening Stroll

Marcopol Oh is offering this skin at Shiny Shabby for the LeLutka heads and I opted to wear it on the new Simone. It comes with several lipsticks and eyeshadows but I preferred to apply a shadow from Izzie Button. Dressy earrings from AvaGardner Kungler, also for Shiny Shabby, give some holiday kick to my outfit. And Mina Nakamura’s casual but sophisticated cut for Tres Beau gives a sort of casual touch to an otherwise sophisticated look.

‘Twas…–KittyCatS &Friends Advent Calendar, Day 24

‘Twas…–KittyCatS &Friends Advent Calendar, Day 24

‘Twas the night before Christmas….

‘Twas…–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 24

It’s actually the day before Christmas and the final day of the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar, and you who are fans knows what that means: a beautiful exclusive KittyCat will be given as a gift to all clickers. The lovely Snow Cap is a pretty kitty, and you can birth it like any KittyCat and breed as well.

My wonderful partner designed the coat on the KittyCat and this is what she wrote:

“We love using snowflakes as a way to decorate our winter gift cats. They remind us of the uniqueness of each individual who is in our Second Life Community. Every person we meet, like every snowflake nature makes, is completely unique!

Each snowflake on your special Kitty represents each person you will meet in your life. Every one is different, special, and one of a kind.

You will notice that there is one snowflake on the cat’s body which has a diamond on it. This is the reminder that in a world of snowstorms where you can feel like you are one of many, YOU are unique. The little snowflake in the cat’s ear also has a diamond on it, as a reminder to listen through the noise of life for those special messages that are all around is. And finally, the cat’s eyes shine like diamonds too, a reminder to see the good in each person, and offer them our best, remembering that they too are special.”

‘Twas…–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 24

I brought her to the Winter Sim at Kalamata for a few photos in my own snow-white outfit. I started with this beautiful knit dress from Ilaya Allen for FROST that comes in several colors and *feels* soft and luxe. Then I added the fur bolero from Kit Ragu for Shiny Shabby, which also comes in several colors as just as a shell as you see here or with a sweater beneath that includes a texture-change HUD. Darling little mittens from PetiteAnaiis Eleonara for FROST include a special body alpha that you wear to allow your arms to show so you can remove your hands (when you are wearing a mesh body). Senzati0n Domenitzo’s thigh high boots are a sexy winter delight for this outfit and also available at Shiny Shabby.

Otyebis has made a lovely skin for Shiny Shabby that can be used on several mesh heads. I tried it on the Logo Alex and was not pleased with the outcome but on the Catwa Annie head, it’s very pretty. I spent a lot of time trying different makeups with it but opted to go with the lipstick in Catwa Clip’s HUD, dialing down the blend a bit. Empyreanforge has made a lovely seasonal necklace for FROST in both gold and silver, a festive look full of charms. Mina Nakamura has this sexy tumble of waves available at Shiny Shabby this round, available in two lengths in the box and with her great textures.
