Tangerine – she is all they claim
With her eyes of night and lips as bright as flame
Tangerine – when she dances by
Senoritas stare and caballeros sigh

The best part of living in SL is living like you are in the Lives of the Rich and Famous. Today I prepared for a dinner party out in my conservatory from Cory Edo for Uber, With tables and chairs Cory did for the same event (with a ton of great textures as you can see and wonderful poses, PG and Adult), I made my tables with a couple of Kaerri Rae’s great table settings and some wine. Sash Arabello has a great gacha at Shiny Shabby with pieces for the traveler including the rug I show and the pretty candles. Cube Republic is featuring the bonsai and hosta at Shiny Shabby as well.

For my dinner party, I wore one of Poulet Koenkamp’s new and sexy dresses, this one featured at her store, and accessorized with a little choker she has at the Chapter Four. I love that Poulet loves colorand  the geometric cutouts on this dress add a little interest. Fringed heels from Fhara Acacia for the Dressing Room include a color change HUD for different versions.

Kuranosuke Kamachi’s long sexy hair for Uber is a perfect accompaniment to this look. Sawsan Secretspy is featuring this skin applier at the Designer Circle and I am really impressed with how great it looks on the Catwa Destiny head (my favorite).

Angel of the Morning

Angel of the Morning

Just call me angel of the morning, angel
Just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby.

~ “Angel of the Morning,” The Pretenders version

Angel of the Morning

Spring is coming so I don’t think it’s entirely unbelievable that I would want to walk out into my garden in my dainties, especially when they are as beautiful as the lingerie Erratic Rain makes. She has released this gorgeous robe for Uber which can be worn open, as I show it, or closed via the HUD. In colors that match her lingerie perfectly (here I wear a bra and panties set she previously made), it’s a beautiful gift for the lady in your life or yourself. Senzati0n Domenitzo recently released these classic pumps in her store and has made available a set of spring colors. I found my garden perfect with Cory Edo’s collection for Uber, a small ivy-covered house with surrounding garden, complete with lighted trees, stone pavers and a beautifully textured terrain. She includes some beautifully-conceived garden furniture for sale as well, including this peacock bench.

Angel of the Morning

The Se7en Project opens in a couple days and it includes some new and old designers. I am kind of interested to see what the mix will be, especially after pulling out this lovely hair bow from Frangipani Flow that comes with a HUD to manage the color of the bow and the individual blossoms. Shyla Diggs has made a new applier for the Catwa heads, this gorgeous look for spring which she is featuring at Uber. As always, her artistry and delicate hand with makeups comes through on the skins. Carina Larsen’s beautiful updo is an elegant top to this beautiful spring look.

The Waiting

The Waiting

“Am I in love? –yes, since I am waiting. The other one never waits. Sometimes I want to play the part of the one who doesn’t wait; I try to busy myself elsewhere, to arrive late; but I always lose at this game. Whatever I do, I find myself there, with nothing to do, punctual, even ahead of time. The lover’s fatal identity is precisely this: I am the one who waits.” ~ Roland Barthes

The Waiting

The lover who waits. She bathes, dresses, and listens to the soft music, expecting her lover. Her chosen lingerie is, of course, from Mariska Simons, the queen of lingerie in SL, who is now converting some of her older pieces and making all of her new pieces with appliers. This outfit, which includes appliers for every body you can imagine as well as Omega, is a case in point of sexiness combined with new technology. Paired with Darling Monday’s shoes for the Mix Event, it’s a bold but sexy look. Lounging on Cory Edo’s modernist furniture for Uber makes the wait more comfortable.

The Waiting

Her skin is a combo of Aleida Rhode’s newest skin available at her mainstore with appliers for everything but the kitchen sink with eyeshadows from Izzie Button and lipstick from Carrie Janick. I am kind of digging the ability to mix things up this way on the LeLutka mesh heads, though I will say it was a bigger challenge finding eyeshadows I liked. I loved these dark eyes from Eleri Catlyn for my waiting woman. I wish more creators made darker, rather than lighter, eyes. Thora Charron’s long wavy sexy new hair in a bold color is the crowning touch.

Lord, in his deepest dreams the gypsy flies,
With sweet Melissa.

Sweet Melissa

I heard this song today, and it was so laid back and lovely, it reminded me of a pretty sunset at the beach, so I rezzed Cory Edo’s latest gorgeous set for the Fameshed third anniversary and had a lovely evening taking photos and enjoying the breeze and waves. The set includes elements for a wedding including the lovely arch you see here (that comes with or without sash and flowers), lanterns and hanging baskets on poles to decorate the way, and chairs with texture change sashes (or can be used without).

A pretty summer dress from Ariadna Garrigus was the call for the day. The dress comes with a texture change HUD offering four versions, including a black and a taupe dress and two flowered versions. HauteCoutureDesign’s pretty little flats for the Tres Chic event include a texture change HUD to allow six colors and metal choice and fit the Slink flat foot. Maxi Gossamer is offering this cheerful necklace in a long and short version for Collabor88.

Sweet Melissa

Alice Demonia has made this lovely full mesh hair for the Thrift Shop, which is priced at a discount as the exclusive piece for the event. It includes a very full HUD of colors (this was just the natural colors and I was amazed) and gorgeous textures. Sawsan Secretspy offered this absolutely lovely skin for Mother’s Day this weekend at a discount but it’s certain to still be found in her shop. Sawsan has appliers for nearly every mesh body part as well (like the Maitreya body and Slink feet I am wearing). What a beautiful beachy look for sweet Melissa.

“If you love something, it will work. That’s the only real rule.” ~ Bunny Williams

Decorating Help

It’s time for spring cleaning and redecorating so I picked up a ton of prims and started setting some new ones down. Cory Edo has a new living room set a Fameshed that is perfect for redecorating, including sofa, chair, artwork, tables and lamp and several choices of blanket chest. The sofa and chair include color change for the upholstery and texture change for the optional pillows and quilt. The chest has the same texture change for the blanket. I spent a good hour clicking colors in and out, prepared to surprise Mr. Beresford when he got home, especially after I decorated with Cory’s artwork and wood wall art and Kunst Himmel’s rug and custom-colored Max Graf’s mesh curtains. I knew he would be so surprised!

Decorating Help

I put on a pretty dress from Vitamingirl from Shiny Shabby that comes in several looks, all gorgeously ethnic with embroidery and a lovely cotton top detailed with buttons and lops. I also custom-colored my sandals from TeamRedgrave with their great HUD. Pretty jewelry from Plurabelle Laszlo added the finishing touch to my look.

Truth Hawks’ newest ‘do added a touch of casual elegance to my look, especially with Sawsan Secretspy’s latest skin for Designer Circle. She has recently introduced a V2 skin tone to her appliers, so make sure you apply the right one with these new skins. Soleil Reid’s eyes are heart-breakingly beautiful with this look.

Decorating Help

Mr. Beresford was, indeed, thrilled with the redecorating (and my look), but he asked if he could add a piece or two of his own. He said he had found something at Fameshed that would fit in perfectly and add his own touch of manliness to the decorating. I had given him permissions over my things, and I had to run, so I left him in charge. I was relieved to see in my email he had only sent back one chair. I was looking forward to see what he had done when I logged in later. His IM in email said, “I finished my decorating. I think the color matches perfectly so you’ll be happy, honey.”

I was pretty excited to see what he had done when I was able to log in. Mr. Beresford indeed added a touch of manliness. Wavie Haller’s Comfy Chair, a recliner fit for a man cave, had taken place of my sent-back chair. Sigh.
