Little Libertine

“Spitting in a wishing well
Blown to hell… crash
I’m the last splash
I know you, little libertine.”

~ Cannonball by The Breeders

‘Cannonball” is a song I heard a lot in grad school—I had a roommate who ran around in her Doc Martens, blasting Cannonball on her stereo and passionately lecturing me with her hybrid Oxford/American accent about the articulation of snake spines as she cradled a skeleton in her pale hands. Her name was Kate. Kate, whose pet snake’s name was Nate–Nate the Snake.

Little Libertine

Kate would have worn this outfit, no problem. She was not goth but she liked to show off her small shape and pale skin. This new dress from Babyhoney Bailey—it could have gone two ways. With its great ruffles at the neckline and around the skirt, its sexy girly spaghetti straps, I could have dressed it up with stockings and heels, but it was so perfectly Kate, I found Gospel Voom’s Docs in my inventory, pulled on stockings from Canimal Zephyr, and headed out to the club.

Little Libertine

I put on dark lipstick. Now, Kate was not always a make-up wearer but when she did, she liked a dark lip to offset her porcelain skin. This makeup from Tuli Asturias is perfect. Her dark hair was perpetually a mess—the humidity in North Carolina did her in, so this hair from Kavar Cleanslate pretty much fits the Kate bill.

Purple Crush

Sometimes you just want to look fantastic. Nothing more than that. You just want to strut around in something completely impractical, bringing the attention down upon yourself.

Purple Passion

Take a trip over to djod Karu’s store, Diram, and get a gander at all the Lady Gaga and Beyonce and Britney take offs and take your pick. I chose this one with its four different bottoms (pants, two stocking styles, and nothing at all) to take a strut around the sims. With the wicked leather-textured jacket, great sculpty prims, and flexi garters hanging down (those alone were worth the outfit), I can strut my stuff all over the grid.

Purple Passion

Pair it with skin from Tuli, boots from Bax, delicious nails I got for almost nothing at a hunt on the Starlust sims, and great poses from Fanny Willis, and I am good to go.

I feature a rock n roll hair from Olli Braveheart, whose store I found while doing the Crazy Arse Hair Hunt. Olli screwed up the hunt item (didn’t set it for sale and now did and rehid it and I am too arsed to search again), but I did notice the fine hair on the wall and got this topper, which puts just the right amount of edge on the look.

Rock n Roll

I am finally out of this winter thing. Actually what pushed me out of it was a visit to a store.

Rock n Roll

The neon busy graphics, bold name, and sort of grunge kitty “feel” of Ivey Deschanel’s store always made me think perhaps it wasn’t a place for me. I  just don’t do that sort of grunge neko thing very well. However, I went in the other day and found that Ivey does a little more than sassy kitty clothing, and I liked what I saw.

Rock n Roll

This outfit from Ivey is glam and sexy and elegant all at once. The elaborate textures in the pants, as if burnt into a velvet, accentuate my long legs and curves with the sculpties that bottom out the legs in a flare. The jacket has a great bolero cut with a tied front—very modern and urban. But the sleeves, made of sculpties, have that decadent featheriness (without the cliched PS fur that everyone else uses) that makes this outfit truly glam. The rich depth of the top with its hand-drawn wrinkles and sexy low-cut back (shown here without the jacket) create a slinky and sensuous camisole. The look is complete and whole and ideal. Ivey’s system piece work is clean and well-done with great seams and edges. Her textures in this outfit are delicious.

Rock n Roll

Sachi Vixen has long been making skins, but her Portia line is a recent addition that once again displays her fine talents as an artist. I especially like the eye makeup on this skin with its subtle rainbow hues, entirely appropriate for an elegant glam girl—not over the top but pushing the edge. And her sexy décolletage is not over the top. I just don’t need to look like I am “enhanced.”
