The Chair

A chair’s function is not just to provide a place to sit; it is to provide a medium for self-expression. Chairs are about status, for example. Or signalling something about oneself. That’s why the words chair, seat and bench have found themselves used to describe high status professions, from academia to Parliament to the law. ~ Evan Davis

I really liked the chairs Tobias Convair has at The Liaison Collaborative, so I built a whole outfit around one. Tobias, whose main goal in life is to bring classical modernism and architecture to SL, has given another  The animation engine can be a bit wonky but the poses are original and different. I certainly appreciated the initial female sit, which shows a woman with a casual and sexy power. Rowr.

My dress from Beanster Potato is a sophisticated choice for this look. She includes a HUD that allows color change for both the top and bottom. I was a little surprised by the materials included in the mesh when I put it on ultra mode but it’s not too bad. The textures are terrific, though, and the dress is sexy in shape and style. I was able to wear Rebel Hope’s sexy sandals with the outfit (thank you, Callie) and one of AvaGardner Kungler’s newest pieces, based on elvin inspiration.

Shyla Diggs has further expanded her collection of skins with a set of beautiful looks for The Liaison Collaborative. Grab this group and the one at Uber and you get a full set. My sexy long hair comes courtesy of Mina Nakamura, who is exploring the face-hiding look with peek-a-boo locks with her latest releases. This beautiful look is at Kustom 9.

Snowflakes—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 13

Snowflakes—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 13

The snowflakes fall,
each in their proper place.

~ Zen proverb

Snowflakes

There are so many beautiful winter spots in SL right now. Even if you aren’t going to have a white Christmas in RL, you can still have one here. And you can wear shorts in the snow! I went to Prides Crossing, a parcel built by Serene Footman, to take these photos. He makes very beautiful spaces for the seasons—autumn was lovely as well. You can sail or fly in to the parcel from the Blake Sea so it’s a true “destination.’

I chose his space because Kiddo Oh has made this gorgeous dress for Winter Trend, a gorgeous romantic ballgown with a fur collar and lovely bow at the back. Kiddo has found her calling in beautiful mesh gowns, suitable for photos or dancing or even weddings. With beautiful textures and detailing, the gowns represent a next generation in SL.

My hair is the lovely gift for today in the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, a romantic updo from Mirja Mills that comes in this brunette or a blonde. I couldn’t help but embellish it with a hair piece from Chirzaka Vlodovic’s gacha at Chapter Four and star drop earrings from Maxi Gossamer, available at Uber. I even made sure my nails took in the winter theme, these from Ravenna Rossini at Winter Trend.

Nikohl Hax’s skin for Frost is a different look for me—paler with an almost painterly style. It’s a pretty, different look for a woman who wants pretty lips and eyes with an artistic touch.

Green Garden

Green Garden

Take me outside, sit in the green garden,
Nobody out there, but it’s okay now.
Bathe in the sunlight, don’t mind if rain falls,
Take me outside, sit in the green garden.

~ “Green Garden” by Laura Mvula

Green Garden

A joyful look deserves a joyful song like this one from Laura Mvula. This look I put together from elements at Love Donna Flora. Sometimes it’s the joyful encouragement someone who is ill needs–a view of flowers, the idea of living in the moment. Start with the gorgeous dress that Kinu Mayako has donated for Love Donna Flora. With a clever hud that allows you to change the colorway of the dress, you get nine dresses in one. Make a copy of the dress, lock in your color and delete the scripts and away you go!

sakide hud

Beautiful wedge heels from Babette Ultsch, just released, accessorize the look. Their ankle band and zip up the back make them more than just pretty. With an easy hud for skin color matching and six different colors, this wedge is versatile and as always with Babette, sexy.

Green Garden

The lovely nails set that Sasy Scarborough made for Love Donna Flora will brighten any look and with its hud will allow for eight color combos to splash flowers on your Slink nails.

The trees under which I dance also have been donated by Shadow78 Tryan. They come with a great hud that allows you to change the colors of the trees and the size so you can have these beautiful trees season-round. These are no copy trees—you get a set of three: large, medium, and small.

Audrey Lamede is donating 100% of proceeds from a generous fat pack of eyes she is selling at Love Donna Flora. Her eyes, with their typical luminosity and eensy pupil, are arresting and beautiful. A pretty pink bow at the neck from Aranel Ah is being offered at The Dressing Room Fusion. A ribbon around the neck has always been on my wishlist for SL, so inevitably I am going to be owning every color.

Audrey Cresci is also donating all funds from the poses she is offering at Love Donna Flora, and they are versatile and cheerful and perfect for a dance in the garden like we used to.

Green Garden

And I’ll fly on the wings of a butterfly
High as a tree top and down again.
Put my bag down, taking my shoes off,
Walk on a carpet of green velvet.
Dance in my garden like we used to,
Dance in my garden like we used to…

I go wherever you go. Take me wherever you go.
