Precious

Precious

But not me, baby, I’m too precious

~ “Precious” by the Pretenders

Diana

Barely said this Pretenders song suited my look, and I agreed. Start with the short belted fur coat and leather pants from Ariadna Garrigus, a sort of high fashion look with an uptown downtown fur coat with zippers at the ankles of the super skinny pants. I wore Senzati0n Domenitzo’s awesome ankle boots with this look, loving how the zippers align. My necklace is one of the prizes in the Blood Letters Hunt from MadPea, offered by Maxi Gossamer. It’s an adult story (so not for child avatars, thanks), and this necklace suits the sexy noir story perfectly.

A new skin from Sawsan Secretspy, with luscious glimmering lips, has been made smoky with the addition of an eye makeup from Joanna1 Lewsey (thanks, K!). That little beauty mark on the lip makes it, in my opinion. My hair is a great cut from MissAllSunday Lemon for the Xiasumi School Festival. I am positive she meant it as a much more innocent style (school, right?), but it looks so perfect for this ensemble, echoing Chrissie Hynde or Joan Jett. I love a layered style like this!

“Eva knows I’m terra incognita and explores me unhurriedly, like you did. Because she’s lean as a boy. Because her scent is almonds, meadow grass. Because if I smile at her ambition to be an Egyptologist, she kicks my shin under the table. Because she makes me think about something other than myself. Because even when serious she shines. Because she prefers travelogues to Sir Walter Scott, prefers Billy Mayerl to Mozart, and couldn’t tell a C major from a sergeant major. Because I, only I, see her smile a fraction before it reaches her face…. Because her laughter spurts through a blowhole in the top of her head and sprays all over the morning. Because a man like me has no business with this substance “beauty,” yet here she is, in these soundproof chambers of my heart.” ~ David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

I am reading Cloud Atlas, and oh, what a great book! This quote is only a smidgen of the gorgeousness of David Mitchell’s writing, which changes in voice among his characters. (Oh, Robert Frobisher, you wily sexy penniless bon vivant bisexual composer.. what a delicious wit you have!)

My Eva is a credit to the romantic love the narrator feels for her. Start with this charming mesh dress from LeeZu Baxter. With its flowered blouse and Victorian style sleeves, lace pencil skirt and satin hem, this gorgeous piece is an homage to the 70s in its complex textures and silhouette. LeeZu has added a subtle shimmer to the fabric, a satiny gloss that shows well in the new materials viewing in SL. BabyChampagne Sass’ high-heeled, high-fashion shoes

I paired Maizon Rayna’s gorgeous jewelry with the outfit. A real life fashion designer, Maizon has always dreamed of being a jewelry maker and in SL she can do it. This gorgeous onyx pearl set with its accompanying flower-shaped jeweled ring includes earrings and a bracelet, which I do not show.

Aida Ewing’s gorgeous Vera skin gives our Eva a perfect look with darkly lined eyes and a pale pink lipstick and blush. Queue Marlowe’s latest, a side swept ‘do, gives the whole look a beautifully blonde tumble of curls. And Reira Islay’s eyes, sold at the Halloween Mini Mart, are intensely lovely.

Somehow it’s O.K. for people to chuckle about not being good at math. Yet if I said, ‘I never learned to read,’ they’d say I was an illiterate dolt. ~ Neil deGrasse Tyson

I’ve been off a few days, nursing a cold and taking care of RL, and.. well… indulging in math. I know that seems weird. Who likes math? Well I do! The Khan Academy has a great site for working on math skills and it’s the kind of puzzle gaming I love to do—with the added benefit of improving my mind. Look, if Danica McKellar can do it, so can I!

Simple math tells me if I put together a great top with terrific jeans, I’m going to have a fabulous look. Erratic Rain has recently released this mesh top that fits perfectly over any mesh bottoms you can come up with. That’s saying a lot because, if you haven’t noticed, mesh from different creators doesn’t always play well together. But Erratic has designed the ultimate sexy but casual blouse in several colors that does the trick. Shai Delacroix has recently released these bootylicious jeans with a color changing HUD that includes 8 shades. Who needs a separate mesh booty when you already have it going on? Moonbubble Gothly made the darling mesh sneakers I wear with this casual look.

A pale and lovely skin, Aida Ewing’s latest skin line is a knock out. With her finely drawn brows, beautifully defined eyes and gorgeous lips, she has once again given the grid beauty. M4r1lyn Magic offers this sexy mesh hair with one of four color HUDs for your most gorgeous hair-down looks. It all adds up to wonderful!
