Meeting Ebbe

Meeting Ebbe

The only thing worse than a coach or CEO who doesn’t care about his people is one who pretends to care. People can spot a phony every time. ~ Jimmy Johnson

Meeting Ebbe

One of the (few) privileges of being the webperson for SL11B is when something good happens, I get an in. I logged in yesterday, prepared to shoot this blog and Doc IM’d saying Ebbe Linden was at SL11B and did I want to come? Well, dang, yes, there is nothing better than seeing a CEO in the wild, and there he was, talking up a blue streak (literally blue because his text appears blue in Firestorm), charming the visitors to Jo Yardley’s biergarten in her 1920s Berlin exhibit at SL11B. (I did ask Jo about pretzels. Our own biergarten serves them!) He was clearly interested in what was going on and interacting with people. It was good to see him in world.

He didn’t talk to me really. I am sure he saw me because I was one of the taller folks there (statuesque–not absurd– and there were a lot of child avis around). I am glad I wore this dress from Cameron Velinov, which is her 1L GIFT at the Summer Fashion Festival (omgah!). It includes a texture change HUD with this same pattern in several color ways. (Yes, I wore a 1L dress to meet Ebbe Linden.) I paired Maxi Gossamer’s summery and fun earrings and sandals from Collabor88 with the look. The whole ensemble comes off as elegant casual, not too goofy or sexy.

Of course, MissAllSunday Lemon’s braid makes it work with a simplicity and beauty that matches the look of the dress. I love the tendrils coming loose, which just adds a touch of romantic to the look. My skin is Inka Mexicola’s lovely offering for the Dressing Room Fusion. With luscious lips and a bit of sparkle to the shadow, it’s ideal for a summer visit to the biergarten to meet Ebbe (or at least see and be seen).

A Tourist at Home

I am so ready for a vacation. I have been running the website over at SL11B, posting the schedules and slurls and blog posts and then running around and enjoying the sights, being a tourist at home, as it were. I found the Oceania parcel that Harlequin Rhode and Nephelle Lanate built, which was a perfect site for showing off this amazingly glamorous mesh bathing suit from Zaara Kohime that she is featuring at Summerfest. In Zaara’s inimitable style, the suit is gathered in the middle in a vintage styling made modern and the silhouette, a mesh made by Zaara, is sexy but not crass. Zaara has also made beautiful bejeweled sandals with an Indian influence to be worn with Slink flat feet.

Belle Roussel is celebrating the summer as well with this luxe jewelry set she is offering at the Summer Fashion Festival. With Belle’s characteristic animated gems to represent light sparkling off the facets and her multiple attachments to allow versatility in styling, the pieces make my simple swimsuit more elegant. I am keeping the sun off with a hat by Vivienne Darcy at the Art in Hats even Quan Lavender organized to benefit Feed a Smile. The pairing of hats with photos was ingenious though I found even better was the idea a few designers had of being inspired by RL art, as they do at my museum’s Art in Bloom each year. A portion of each sale of a hat helps feed a child in Kenya so while you enjoy wearable art, you are also giving a child nourishment.

My hair, which I love, is one of the newest from Shylah Honey and Tommy Fairplay. I really like the blonde texture but even more, I love how they made the mesh fall across the front in tendrils as real life hair does. It’s a very subtle difference from other mesh hair but I noticed it right away. Aida Ewing is offering this luminous skin at creation.jp and it’s lovely with a few innovative makeups for different sorts of looks, but I wore this one with its luscious pink lips and blush.
