Just Another Day

Nothing pithy or even interesting to say today. Just that I wish I had a house like this on the beach. And that my skin were this pretty.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Cadmium Red

This week it was my pleasure to do a photo shoot with the great Maxi Gossamer. Most people know that she makes beautiful mesh jewelry but maybe they don’t know just how lovely a person she really is. Not to mention a total babe!!! Is this an SL supermodel I see before me?

When I saw this color scheduled for the week of July 4th, I couldn’t resist a little patriotism…but why restrict it to just the U.S.A?  London is hosting the Olympics in just a few weeks, so we’re all about to get super patriotic! All that notwithstanding, we did take a little time to give each other a trans-atlantic stare-down.

063012a

In addition to the great jewelry we are wearing, we both rock these completely cadmium red pants from Mesh It. And I just love the US flag themed nails from My Pretty Pixels.

Congrats to Akayo and Inkie, who have won a hairstyle of their choice at Burley! For next week, I will give away a Maxi Gossamer mystery item that hasn’t been released yet…how’s that for suspense? At least you know that if it’s made by Maxi, it’s gonna be great!

  2. inkie Loudwater

    Great styling of the both of you <3 very detailed

  3. Rudhmellowen

    YAYYYYYY Rocking the UK Flag. You both look great and the UK/US Stare down photo is brilliant, who won the staring contest though? It does give you a proud feeling being a Brit at the moment, for me it does anyway lol… What with the Jubilee and the Olympics, mind you I got a bit patriotic when I left the UK, never had been before. YOU LOOK AWESOME!!!! So excited to see the Maxi Gossamer Jewellery! YAY!

  4. Alexandra

    yeah for the transatlantic stare down. Maxi’s creations totally rocks. And thank you , by the way, for the gift last week. I would comment without the gift, but it was a pleasure , indeed. I myself am popping over to UK the exact day the Olympics start, I had forgotten everything about the dates. But still very easy and cheap! to get the flight ticket

  5. Ayla Qinan

    Love your pics, fantastic! <3

  6. YvetteDonner

    You both look AMAZING! Those red pants are real eye-openers, and I love the trans-Atlantic theme 🙂

  7. ~Caroline

    Perfect redness!! The detailed styling is superb, Eliza.

  8. Anichka Savira

    I love this post! Such a cute look and I love both of you wearing your flags!

  9. Laura Streeter

    Muy patriótico, preciosa en cadmium.

Diggin’

We are having a heat wave that is making this area rival the western deserts where I grew up. Nothing against the western deserts but frying an egg on the hood of my car is not what I call optimal weather. It reminded me of digging up my parents extremely rocky garden bed when I was growing up and thinking I would die from it. So I would likely not be wearing this awesome mesh necklace from HANDverk in RL, but in SL I can dig in style, even if I am a little dirty.

I am enjoying Unique’s new line of ethnic skins and this one is called American woman. I always like Nany Merlin’s bone structure and no one does an SL nose better, in my opinion. With my tie-dye tank from Jane and my boots, gloves and shovel, I am ready to hit the garden.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Royal Purple

This color reminded me considerably of the color patriarch, that we did last year. I had to call on my friend Stewart to help me out for that one so of course I had to call on him again. He asked me why didn’t I do Messalina, who was, and I quote, “one hell of a lady”.

So here she is, an empress of Rome who had some pretty serious power in her time, but one who lost her life because of her insecurities. She reminds me a bit of Atia of the Julii from the HBO series Rome, if any of you have seen that. What machinations, what intrigue! What a dreadful need for power and position that led her to get rid of (i.e. assassinate) any rivals for the throne, and eventually lose her own head.

But what a head it must have been! I chose the Artemis skin from Unique to give me a patrician look with deadly purpose.

And congratulations to Raphaela Palmer for winning the Fiona Set from Artistry by E. Watch for your prize coming soon!

Next week I will be giving out two gift cards to Analog Dog, where you will find more hairstyles like this fabulous curly updo by Queue Marlowe.

  4. Nicandra Laval

  10. Bourbon Zenovka

    You look amazing! And what a convincing Roman patriarch you are.

  11. Sama Yalin

    You look just perfect:) One hell of a lady, indeed!

  12. Raphaela Palmer

    I agree with Rudhmellowen; ‘Move over Venus’ because you defiantly give her a run for her money looking that that.

    Thanks again for the Fiona set, not only is it gorgeous but now I have found a ‘new to me’ jeweller,

  13. Madison

    Wow, you look absolutely statuesque…you look gorgeous!!!!

  14. Lashae Karsin

    Very lovely… I adore your earrings!

Rye

One of my advisees at school was expressing some angst recently at the fact that no high school boys like her. Rye is 6 feet tall and has legs up to her ears and is truly one of the most spectacular-looking girls I have ever met. And she’s fifteen. It doesn’t help that she looks like she’s twenty-five. How to tell a girl like this that all she has to do is wait? That the time will soon come when no one is going to be able to notice anyone else when she is around? And is your academic advisor really the person you want to have tell you that you are beautiful?  At fifteen she doesn’t care about in a few years and the now is all-encompassing. Oh, I do remember that. But really, it IS normal for sophomore boys to be totally clueless when it comes to girls. I see it every day. I hope she recognizes that, and remembers.

Rye has hair just like this, long and thick and wavy—maybe Truth Hawks was thinking of someone like Rye when he created this design. Rye also has a beautiful, individual face. When I put on the new Wendy skin from Unique it immediately reminded me of her. I have always liked the glow in Nany Merlin’s skins and I also like the delicate bone structure, particularly along the bridge of the nose and brow ridges. This skin is more than up to her standard, with it’s beautifully shaped nose and soft texture.

Vintage Elegance

Bruce has been pestering me to do a vintage post lately and even went out and found stuff he thought I should blog. Talk about really getting into things! Anyway, once he got me in the store I went crazy myself, mostly because of this gorgeous camisole and bloomers from Cilia Shepherd. It’s embarrassing, but I actually did scream a little bit when I saw them for the first time.

063011b

Also to die for is this beautifully rendered 30’s hairstyle from MrSigmund Fride, with its perfectly marcelled waves!

063011a

And finally Bruce got to make his manly appearance in this great outfit from Tatiana Starsider. Sexy, huh, girls? Since there was way more stuff that we wanted  to blog that we couldn’t fit in this post, we will have to do the rest another time, I guess,. I better watch out or I may experience a hostile model takeover on this blog!!!!
