May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
~Irish Blessing


I have to say, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the luckiest days of my life. It is the day my son was born, 13 years ago, and carries a lot of significance for me, so I can’t help but feel I have the luck of the Irish. Supposedly some small part of my heritage is Irish (according to my grandfather, who wielded a shillelagh as if he were some expert, though I think there was some blarney in that story).

My over-the-top look is an explosion of joy and luck and happiness and a sort of anti-hazy-monochrome-photo-in-SL look. (I wanna blow your Flickr up with green today.) Start with Mami Jewell’s darling dress with mesh bodice and skirt and a polka-dot flexi skirt and headband. Add to that a variety of accessories from the Luck of the Irish Gacha from Depraved Nation, including a darling necklace from Paul Lapointe, a lucky handbag from Moonbubble Gothly, flowery sunglasses from Lyla Shepherd and under my skirts, a wicked Celtic garter to keep me armed. Pretty pumps with a great color change HUD from Shaleene Kenin for Kustom 9 class up the look.


Rocketta Haven made this darling applier for Skin Fair. Her looks are so candy-sweet pretty that they match the Catwa head perfectly. The applier comes with several lipstick colors (all pinky pretty) and liners. I decided to do up Calico Ingmann’s pretty ponytails for Hairology in the deepest green from her rainbow color set. Behind me is Nanda Marjeta’s gacha décor set for Luck of the Irish Gacha, perfect for an St. Patrick’s Day party, complete with ale!

Suddenly, I walk on by a vision of your blue eyes, so lovely
And suddenly, you’re back with me, over hills and valleys deep you find me
Oh the nights seem so long and the days carry on in spite of how I long for you
And the stars up above are invited to fall Into these open arms of mine.

~ “Suddenly” by Ala.Ni


This song just won’t leave me alone. It’s lovely and beautiful and sentimental and though the lyrics aren’t the best, the singer makes it work. So I had to use it for this blog, where the dress, from Fashionboi Landar and Justice Topaz, makes it. From the Shiny Shabby event, it’s a perfect mix of silk and girly with a little sexy in the mix. I styled it with applied corset stockings from Moonbubble Gothly, the cute flats from Shaleene Kenin, and a jewelry set from LouLou Teichmann, the latter two from Shiny Shabby as well.


Monica Outlander has released a set of her Sprites for the Arcade, a group of animals she has created from felted wool and crystals and herbs in real life that she has replicated in SL. Darling little animals, cute for decorating your home either singularly or in multiples, especially if you grab the cute shelf she gives for displaying them. My hair is Truth Hawks’ absolutely gorgeous piece for this month’s boho-themed Uber. I love the loose braid, the textures and the darling accoutrement that come with a color change HUD so you can mix them up, or just not wear them. I absolutely love this hair, and I am not usually a braid fan. I am again wearing Sawsan Secretspy’s gorgeous skin for Designer Circle because I felt like I had hidden it behind glasses in my last post and wanted to show how truly pretty it is.

There was an old, old house renewed with paint,
And in it a piano loudly playing.

Shiny Shabby opens today and with it, a whole lot of great shiny and hardly shabby items, all made for this event that relies on the theme of vintage and gently used items. Miffyhoi Rosca is a natural creator for these event, and she has made a darling long mesh dress with a calico print, belted at the waist with wonderful puffed sleeves. Paired with a matching headpiece and Shaleene Kenin’s darling sandals (which I realize you can barely see but they are darling, trust me), the look is vintage.

The fair is chock full of the kind of shabby chic furniture people love in SL. This piano from Agustov includes a passel of great poses, including this piano playing animation (that went rhythmically with the Radiohead I was listening to when I shot the photos, though the vision and sounds didn’t quite match). Tab Tatham made my lovely white pieces, part of a set of intriguing decor items which include this wiry plant. They are mod, so they can be tinted. My mesh chair, from AptB, includes tons of texture change options for different parts of the chair, so you purchase one chair and can redecorate over and over with a few clicks. Instead of having to choose an entire look, you can mix and match metals, woods, even the two different chair cushions, and everything has that wonderful burnished look.

Umazuma Metaluna is releasing a new skin for Shiny Shabby, this delicate, winsome skin with a subtle blush and her wonderful Intensity Lip system, which allows for custom tinting. Truth Hawks must have known that vintage pretty would come calling because his latest release was a perfect match for this look with its gentle waves and beautiful roll to the back. Katya Valeska made two sets of poses for the fair, including a couple you see in these photos.
