“There is nothing holier in this life of ours than the first consciousness of love, the first fluttering of its silken wings.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Flutter

My beautiful sexy fae is today’s fantasy, a winged queen with a sensuous look. Start with the lascivious pearl harness Sigifaust has made for this month’s Shiny Shabby. It was fully modifiable so I could shape it around my Maitreya body. I added Bax Coen’s up to there thigh high boots, this version made specifically for the Maitreya body, and a beautiful crown of jewels from Donatela Couturier to grace my butterfly queen. Pretty wings from artladyjas make her a butterfly.

Flutter

My inspiration started with one of Umazuma Metaluna’s gorgeous appliers for the TAG Gacha with a butterfly stamped across the eyes and luscious purple lips. I have to say that Uma’s skins are gorgeously evocative on the Catwa Jessica head and they photo so beautifully. I can’t want for her to do more! I chose beautiful mesh eyes from Soleil Reid to echo the gold and purple in my outfit and I colored my hair from Shylah Honey, one of hers at the Fantasy Collective, with one of the 40 colors in their new HUD. What a fantasy!

Love in the Time of Cholera

Love in the Time of Cholera

“To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else’s heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter. He had not missed a single one of her gestures, not one of the indications of her character, but he did not dare approach her for fear of destroying the spell.”  ~ Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

Love in the Time of Cholera

I’ve been holding on to this quote for a bit for a look that makes me fall in love, and this one did. It’s the colors of the dress from Spooky Mistwallow, and the style. Spooky includes a HUD that allows switches between 6 colors on the dress and 6 on the skirt, all complimentary for the palette you choose, and I loe this brown set. The style of the dress is flirty and soft and sophisticated, especially belted at the waist.

Well maybe it’s the shoes really that I really love. Strappy and sexy, they are one of two pairs that Eku Zhong is selling for 21 Shoe, and they are ONLY ON SALE TODAY, the 21st, so do not delay in getting them. Eku is a quiet one, making her sexy shoes and softly putting them out for shoe warriors to snatch up and sex up the grid.

Love in the Time of Cholera

It’s the skin. That is key here. Umazuma Metaluna has outdone herself on this one. The tone of the skin, the freckles, the features, the beautiful full lips, groomed eyebrows, gentle blush. I gasped when I saw myself. This may not be a look for everyone. It’s certainly not your typical dolly face. Uma has imbued this face with character and beauty.

It might be the eyes. I have been showing a lot of Constance Daehlie’s eyes and makeup and I am completely in love with these dark brown peepers. It’s hard to do a brown eye right, and she pulls it off by giving light to the eyes.

Then perhaps it’s the hair. I loved this short cut from Miu Edman when it premiered at Hair Fair and ran to get the brown for this ensemble. I personally LOVE short hair on women and wish I could pull it off myself. It’s a great style to show off these ginormous earrings from Donatela Couturier.

The Tease

Moxie

“Hate to sound sleazy,
but tease me,
I don’t want it if it’s that easy”
~ “I Get Around” by Tupac Shakur

Moxie

I am dressed to tease from the 100 Block, another one of the Depraved Nation’s fashion extravaganzas, which is opening April 9. Yeah, sorry, you have to contain your fashion lust for a few more days while I tease you (and you know how I like to tease). Start with this dangerously sexy lace mini-dress from Missqwerty Pevensey (she of the amazingly impossible-to-type name), a mesh confection for wowing the boys at the club. Pull on stockings from Lisanna Lauria with garters down the thighs and then over-the knee-boots from Ydreece Forster, and you have a complete look, all from the 100 Block.

Moxie

I wiggled into this gorgeous skin from Nicole Button. I loved what she did for Skin Fair with her newest skins and now she has released them fully. I wear the skin untouched by makeup, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. I will wear this one over and over and others she has produced. They are just that lovely. My short hair is Chiaki Xue’s newest release, a unisexy style that comes in Chiaki’s full complement of colors.
