Feelin’ the Blues

The title of this post is not about being depressed. It’s a ploy to tell you about the great blues you can hear on the grid. First there is Hotlanta, where folks like Bradley Gazov spin the blues (he’s there Monday and Friday nights, fyi). Then there is the Savoy Jazz Club, where I have caught Hy Gynoid doing his thing. (I remember a night of raunchy women’s songs once we got him going.. ha!) And then there is Crossroads, where a gorgeous DJane, BluJns Benoir, kicks it. Or the infamous Junkyard Blues Club where I have caught some smokin hot sets from Fiery Otaared. Feelin’ blue? There’s a place on the grid for you.

Feelin' the Blues

What to wear to a club but something like this—short, sexy and blue. Eclectic Wingtip has recently brought some pieces out of her closet that are sexy and slinky. I really like this dress for it’s simplicity. Dress it up or dress it down—it’s a palette upon which you can add many looks.

Tuli Asturias is having a sale on skins right now. You can grab this beauty for half price if you scoot over to her sim. My hair is one of Truth Hawks’ newest with a daring streak. I chose to go Bonnie Raitt white to match the blues theme here.

My boots are from Gin Galtier, who is coming out with this winter set that will NOT keep your toes warm. However, this is the going look nowadays and really meant for a girl clubbing. The scrunchy legwarmer makes this “winter.” Gin did a great job knitting these up in a cable stitch.

Satisfied Mind

Rosanne Cash is one of my secret heroines. She proves that a person can grow up to be normal and productive, even with the privileges and problems of being the child of a celebrity (she is Johnny Cash’s daughter). She recently did an album of songs called The List from a list her father gave her of the 100 most essential country songs he wanted her to know. One of the best songs on the album is “Satisfied Mind.”

A Satisfied Mind

Rosanne Cash does country music but she lives in Greenwich Village and grew up in Southern California. So we’re not talking about a woman here who has uh.. milked the cows and driven the tractor to the back field.

This dress by sachi Vixen reminded me of her as it has a sort of country flavor in its denim and then a sort of city sexiness in its short length. Sachi, a veteran of SL, makes a dress that is seam free with stitching that curve over the body in all the right places. I pair it with a set of thigh high socks held up by suspenders, hand knitted by Nena Janus and boots Emma Gilmour just put out for Fifty Linden Friday.

A Satisfied Mind

My skin is one of Tuli’s Dressing Room offerings, one that I like a lot with its purple shading. My beautiful and almost impossibly long and thick braid (which curves around from the back) is a very recent offering from Truth Hawks.

A Satisfied Mind

How many times have you heard someone say
“If I had his money, I could do things my way?”
Little they know that it’s so hard to find
One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind….
~ “Satisfied Mind” as performed by Rosanne Cash (with Neko Case)

PS I hazard a guess this is the ONLY non-Halloween blog you’re seeing today. It’s intentional. I have eaten all the candy already :P
