Going Green

A little green is finally showing up outside. I am thrilled—it’s my favorite color.

Going Green

That is why I was thrilled to get this darling green dress from LeeZu Baxter. It’s expertly drawn and sculpted with a flirty little sculpty skirt. I discovered I only wear the A/B cup accoutrements—the ribbon and bust. I love how she made the sculpted pieces and made them work for this little dress. LeeZu attends to all the details too, including the zipper up the back and the translucency of the ribbon.

I realize now I blew it and didn’t photo these terrific sandals from Siddean Munro. I have SUCH a hard time matching feet—I find it impossible. Siddean makes it incredibly easy with her HUD system. The colors match so easily and coloring nails is simple too. These new sandals are PERFECT for springtime warm weather and I bet they would do well for RP looks too like togas. (They come in several colors.)

My hair is a new one from Truth Hawks—another home run. I recently visited Mocksoup Graves’ store because I love her make-ups. They are a great overlay on many skins because they are pretty sheer and seem to fit many lip sizes. I overlaid it on Tuli Asturias’ beautiful Sara skin that also comes with great lipsticks, but I really liked this copper color from Mocksoup.

Going Green

Emerald, green, chartreuse, grass, vert, jade, forest, sage, malachite, moss, pea, olive, lime, kelly—I like ‘em all. (Well not kelly so much.)

Enchantment

Just around the corner in every woman’s mind – is a lovely dress, a wonderful suit, or entire costume which will make an enchanting new creature of her.  ~Wilhela Cushman

Enchantment

When I first got to SL, I didn’t quite get the whole point of weddings in SL. I got partnership (mostly but that’s a whole other story, considering my partner is a friend only), I understood ball gowns, but the whole wedding thing I didn’t quite grasp. When I thought about it, though, there is something truly fantasy-based about weddings too, and if in your real life you were unable to have the big blow-out, huge-dress, 10 attendants, bridezilla, ice-sculpture wedding you always wanted, you can have it here (and it doesn’t cost quite as much).

Monica Outlander has tapped into that spirit with a set of bridal dresses she recently released. Taking her beautiful design expertise from her gorgeous evening gowns and applying it to bridal gowns was a no-brainer and she offers a line that has something for everyone. I chose this dress because of its traditional full-blown silhouette—the huge skirt, the draped fabrics around the waist, the enormous headpiece—it’s wedding theater at its finest.

Enchantment

I wear a fresh skin from Tuli Asturias with another lip gloss from Mocksoup Graves. I am really enjoying playing with these lip and eyeshadow colors from Mocksoup. How else could I make myself look more like myself than by adding the lip color I like that is not a Tuli color so I look just a wee bit different from other Tuli girls.

My necklace was made by Alienbear Gupte and was her contribution for the RFL Clothing Fair. If you look closely at it, you can be appropriately blown away by the intricacy of the design and the beauty of the textures. Alienbear is one of SL’s premier jewelers.

Alienbear will be participating in this year’s Fashion for Life as a VIP Sponsor. You will be hearing more and more from me in this blog about that event, which I am running. Lots is going on behind the scenes, all of it absolutely amazing. We have had unbelievable generosity from incredible designers like Alienbear who have chosen to up their sponsorship for this event so that more money goes directly to the American Cancer Society. Soon I will start cross blogging for that event with the Fashion for Life website so you can hear more about all these amazing designers.

Infatuation

“I was about half in love with her by the time we sat down. That’s the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty… you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are.” ~ JD Salinger

Infatuation

Today I had the distinct honor of speaking to Kaseido Quandry’s class regarding virtuality, my virtual being, etc. After the formal end of the class, I changed over to my piggy avatar and plunked myself down next to one of the students in the class. I flirted with him as Piggy, asking him if he liked girls with “a little ham on their hocks.” The class told me he turned a beet red in class in embarrassment. I had to giggle. I think he was a wee bit infatuated with Piggy. (He was also a good sport.)

Maybe it wasn’t Piggy but how Harper looked before I changed. I wore this cutesexy dress from Mika Nieuport with its color change belt and luscious rich knit textures with her great tights and some sportysexy boots from Gospel Voom to the class (because Kaseido pays close attention to what I wear, I learned). The earthy palette matched my earthy approach to things, I suspect.

Infatuation

A glowing Tuli Asturias skin was touched up with a little magic from Mocksoup Graves, who offers useful and subtle makeups to slightly alter your look in SL. I like that the lips overlay Tuli’s skin without remaking it, the eyeshadows (as I show here) fit perfectly. I accessorized with this gorgeous jewelry from Lynaja Bade. And my long luscious locks are a new offering from Truth Hawks, who injects every one of his hair styles with a bit of sexy.
