My Blue Blue Heart

Day three, and this is for the lovers who have blonde babes as their Valentines. Blue *always* suits a blonde.. always.

Baby Blues

paeoti Pomeray, commonly known for her luscious lingerie, is also one heck of an evening gown maker. I remember one of my first gowns was a large romantic piece with a huge swirling skirt and fur trim along the top. I felt just glorious wearing it. Now paeoti has found her voice with the sleeker and sexier. The dress I show is one of four colors offered, but the blue really moved me. With the exquisite silver filigree trim, the slim sleek skirt cut up the sides, and the beautifully tiered scarf, this is a gown for a special lady. Not everyone can pull it off. If you want to give this as a gift, purchase it on XStreetSL and send it over.

I wear my hair up with an elegant design from Elikapeka Tiramisu. Let me digress here and say that blonde textures are never quite as good as black or red in SL. Elikapeka somehow hit on that golden perfection needed for a blonde and variants of it. I know that she has cut back on her business in SL, but I encourage any of you to grab any ETD you can before it poofs altogether. She is STILL one of the best in SL.

My jewelry is from another creator that has gone quiet—Random Calliope. This set reveals the ground-breaking tiny work that Random did so amazingly well. Even today, none can rival how he made jewelry from in-world prims without textures (no.. no PS files were imported to make that work, no sculpties, no machine built them). Random hand laid each piece on a living avatar model for all his creations. Random had a uniquely romantic vision as well. A visit to his sim, Ode, will clue you into the beautiful landscape of his mind.

Paeoti Pomeray is BACK! I want to shout that from tops of the Linden trees! Paoeti is BACK!

What do I mean by back? Did paeoti ever really leave? Not sure about that but for a while there, Nymphetamine was riding sky high. You wanted a beautiful, lush, sexy dress, you went to Nymphetamine. I remember meeting paeoti when I did my first article in SL. I was so excited to meet her and I prepared by visiting her impressive sim and store, viewing all the amazing content. She was so friendly and so generous, and her work was impressive. We remained friends. Then paeoti was quiet for a while. We didn’t see a lot of new content from her—she took a break.

Well, she’s back, helped by savvy Manager Stacy Maracas, and she’s still making amazing fashion. I chose to wear the new Tre’Lace Formal Dress for these photos because the textures are so beautiful and romantic and dark. Paeoti has ingeniously layered a lace layer over the satin skirt layer to provide a complex skirt construction that moves gloriously when you’re dancing or walking. Her underlying system piece work is, as always, impeccable.

I wore a pale pale skin from Pulse to offset the beauty of the blackness. Lorac Farella’s hand drawn skins are an artistic and beautiful alternative to the photo-sourced or simplistic skins so prevalent nowadays. I am a huge fan of Lorac’s (as anyone reading this blog would know). I never altered my shape to wear her skins and from the first day I tried one on, they spoke to me. They were expressive in photographs and made my beauty unique.

I adorned the dress with jewelry from Tiffy Vella. Eclectica is one of the new up and comers in the jewelry world, as far as I am concerned. Her pieces are classy, dressy, and unique. These are not pieces you purchase at the mall—you would find them in a boutique or at an art dealer’s gallery.
