Let the little fairy in you fly! ~ Rufus Wainwright

The Little Fairy

Genre’s new event is all about fae and so I did my best to wear the gorgeous pieces that they are offering to find the little fairy in myself. I started with this cute dress from Augurer with its sparkly otherworldly pattern and matched Plurabelle Laszlo’s darling little fairy slippers. Gorgeous fractal wings from Kerryth Tarantel add a shine to the whole look (remember when wings were SO in?) and a lovely little mesh blossom necklace and earrings from Ellantha Larsson complete the look.

Cherelle Capra has made a lovely vanity with cosmetics (which I didn’t rez) and stool for fairies to use for beautifying. (It is said fae are vain little creatures, apparently, who like to look their best as they flit around doing lovely deeds.) Little butterflies flit around the mirror. Of course, to be most beautiful, a fae needs to have an etherial skin and eyes. I picked up Hlin Bluebird’s darling skin at The Dressing Room Fusion. The brilliant part is it comes with ALL appliers you could ever need for a ridiculously low price and a lovely subtle makeup, perfect for fairies—or spring. I wore Constance Daehlie’s lashes from Genre to pop my eyes, which are gorgeous—bright fairy colors from Chandra Masala. And Mina Nakamura’s casual, wind-tossed style completes my look.

Raking Leaves

Raking Leaves

Here by the baring bough
Raking up leaves,
Often I ponder how
Springtime deceives,–
I, an old woman now,
Raking up leaves.
~ Thomas Hardy

Raking Leaves

The hour has been added back to our days and now the days grow dark quickly where I live. I spent the afternoon in the rare sunshine (it’s been raining a lot), raking up the birch tree leaves that have fallen in my front and back yard. I got what I fear is one of my last bike rides in for the season and dumped the gangly tomato plant at the curb. The herbs are safely inside, sunning in the kitchen window. The hibiscus is unhappily standing in my office (not sure I can get it through the winter—probably not).

A warm sweater is what is needed now—and this long sweater dress from Angelina Eizenberg does the trick. I love the colors stitched into the sweater, the big cowl neck and how it covers my bum, which gets cold outside. Of course, I can’t give up my capris just yet, so these darling short jeans from Siddean Munro (she doesn’t just do feet, folks!) are the ticket. Rustic boots with a handy color-change HUD from Tash Porthos keep my feet warm and cute too.

Raking Leaves

Shyla Diggs and Tricky Boucher have just released a new skin—Nina. It’s become the reigning principal among the top skin makers that makeups and a variety of looks is the way to keep things going and Shyla’s keeping up with the best of them. Of course we have again the subtle makeups, the beautiful eyes and brows and the gentle blush. And underneath the big sweater, there is a gorgeous body, of course. Truth Hawks made my casual and cute ponytails—much less little girl than just easy wearing.

Hydrangeas

Hyacinth

The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life. ~ Jean Giraudoux

Hyacinth

The heat this past week has made the hydrangeas burst with bloom, nodding their cumbersome blossoms in the weak hot breeze and making everything glorious. Quark Fallen has made some beautiful oversized hydrangeas on display at his sim Leroy, and so I shot photos among them.

I am pleased with this 20s-influenced look I put together. I donned the long gown from Ariadna Garrigus that includes a beautiful back strap  and a glittering beaded Art Deco-influenced pattern. I added beads from M4r1lyn Magic and used Siddean Munro’s mesh hands to show off Giela Delpaso’s great new manicure set. I love being able to paint my nails in SL. It’s like going to my local manicurist and seeing the shelves of hundreds of colors and being able to pick and choose.

Hyacinth

What makes the look, of course, is this 20s hair cut from Plurabelle Laszlo. The hair includes a HUD to let you change the color of the flower and the hair tie. I absolutely love how she brought Louise Brooks back to life with this cut.

Of course the icing on the cake is Aida Ewing’s gorgeous Katya skin, being offered now at the Liaison Collective. With Aida’s characteristic style, the skin is elegant with gorgeously lined eyes, deep ruby lips and beautifully defined brows.
