Stalking the Deal

The deal—it can be right there before your eyes, but to get your hands on it, to finally close—that requires a certain amount of stalking and cunning.

Stalking the Deal

For a woman, it’s sometimes harder to close the deal. The pressure about how you present is so strong—too sexual and you’re a mindless bimbo, too conservative and you’re unimaginative and frumpy. This look, put together from several elements, represents a woman who has sex appeal but also knows how to “git ‘er done” and done right. She doesn’t sacrifice her sexuality or femininity for a boring suit and she doesn’t sacrifice her integrity for bad business.

Onyx LeShelle helps break out of the boring suit trap with her new jacket (part of a set of clothing and shoes just released at Maitreya). With its almost tailored silhouette, it lacks the button-uptightness of most suits with its neutral linen colors and almost mandarin color. (And blessedly, the sculpties are mod so you can line the plackets up).

Stalking the Deal

Underneath a leopard print silk top, which I made from combining Morphine Janick’s bra with violett Ellils’ top (which lacked “coverage” when worn alone). Each piece separately would be too revealing. Together they worked. Long wool shorts from Migi Voom complete the look, showing a shapely leg but also provide a tailored and professional look.

The jewelry is where our businesswoman gets her touch of style. With leopard print hoops from violett Ellils and beautifully textured wild bangles from kikunosuke Eel, she pushes into the realm of dangerous (and she’s clearly careful about the details). Who wouldn’t want to seal the deal with her?

Stalking the Deal

Finally, shoes from cocoro Lemon. With their closed toe and black heel, they are quite conservative. It’s the open back and the wild (and just gorgeous) leopard skin fur that makes them outstanding and makes our lady command attention—for all the right reasons.

Happy Valentine’s Day

This is for my loved ones—my friends. Happy Valentine’s Day, dear ones, when only romantic love plays a featuring role but when we should talk about love in its wholeness. Not just eros but also philia and agape. This is for you, my friends, who make my first and second lives so rich and fulfilling.

Happy Valentine's Day

I show a mixed bag here of a terrific (topless) corset by LeeZu Baxter combined with a blouse from Migi Voom. I have owned this corset from LeeZu a while but have always had the quandary of where to wear it—there just aren’t a lot of places I go where a topless corset is called for. However, this little top from Migi Voom suited it perfectly, and it was a perfect combination.

Happy Valentine's Day

I have been wearing this hair from Queue Marlowe endlessly. Really, it’s getting to be a problem. I wore it to model for RFyre, I wore it earlier this week for a blog, and I wore it with this outfit when I went out dancing at Tiphares with my dear friends last Sunday. It’s my love hair.

Let me put a little plug in here for my nails too, which you can barely see, but which are freakin’ fantastic. Made for modeling poses specifically, these prim nails are worn on size 20 hands and can be clicked to adjust to the 7 different hand gestures that come with poses—relaxed, spread, typing, salute, point, peace, and fist. They fit perfectly every time without adjustment once you click the menu. And click longer and you get a variety of color choices. The natural nails are exquisite. They are highly recommended (and frequently worn since SC always wants nails when I model for him.)

Happy Valentine's Day

Finally, these terrific pumps from Vitamin Chemistry complete the ensemble with their sexy shape and smart buckle. Pretty girls everywhere are going to want these shoes with their fine attention to detail (the great buckle, the dark soles, the well textured shoe, the steel heel tip). Va-voom!

Happy Valentine's Day
