Anchors Aweigh

This adorable mesh dress from Vero Modero had me running around trying to find a Navy shipyard so I could wave to a bunch of sailors. The best I could find though was a really big cruise ship. still, adorable, right?


Just as adorable is my nautical themed jewelry from Ripe:

City Girl

This sparkly gold dress from Vero Modero only works for a girl living in the city—anywhere else and she would either cut her legs to shreds or attract every insect in 30 miles. But it does look good walking down a city street. As does Catwa Clip’s newest beehive-inspired updo.

Scripting Shenanigans

Maxi Gossamer has created a lovely design for the Chic2 event. The new Lost Eden Sun pendant is not only  beautiful—it also contains a cosmic mystery!


The pendant comes with a color change script, and herein lies the mystery. When I tried to change the color, nothing happened when I clicked on the pendant. Maxi worked through quite a bit of consternation trying to figure out what was going on. Well Maxi came back the next day and said, “stand with open sky behind you.”


Well okay.

So I did, and voila, color change success!


As Maxi said, it’s a Sun pendant, so sunlight must be necessary. Is this the first step in SL prim evolution? The first prim intelligence? Who knows? Make sure you visit the Chic2 event to pick up this baffling beauty!

Also new to love this week at Vero Modero is the Desire dress. This great dress, designed for Vero Modero by Cuba Avedon of Shey, has a HUD with 10 different dress textures or an option to color the dress any color you like. You can see which one I chose!

And to set it all off I hung around the interior of Winter DiPrima’s lovely Quaint Cottage. Now I am going to go play with my color change necklace some more!

Taking The Leap

The buzz around my office is that the school year is going by amazingly fast and that 3rd quarter feels especially crunched. It’s barely the end of February and already we are working on course planning and textbooks for next September. There is a widely held theory at my school that pretty much once you hit Thanksgiving it’s all practically over for the year. It’s a preposterous idea, but this year it feels like there some truth to it. Keeping up is a challenge, and leaves less time for other things, as is pretty obvious from my blog slow-down. So I am glad for a leap day this year, although I am not sure that in the end it really works out as extra time. But spring break is coming, so that will  be a nice chance to regroup and remember things outside of work, like my name and where I live and that I do have a husband, and as I recall I kind of like him. So when Vero Modero sent out the notices for the new spring collection, I was more than ready to jump on board!

I am such a fan when Bou makes casual clothes, they always look so perfect and I always wish I had them in RL. This is an outfit that I would love to wear to school, but I am afraid I would get chalk dust and whiteboard marker all over it, so maybe it would  be better suited to prancing around some fabulous European city.


My mesh necklace and ring are from the fabulous Maxi Gossamer, who will be participating in March Mesh Madness, which opens tomorrow. Both of these items will be available at the fair…don’t pass up the chance to check out her amazing designs!

Vero Modero Light Play

Some fun newness from Bouquet Babii this week. Catwalk, here I come!  I had some fun playing around with lighting changes in Photoshop for these shots, but I’ve tried to stay true to the colors. And amazing colors they are!



This last photo is not photoshopped at all beyond cropping, so you can see the difference, and the beautiful cardigan texture.

    i am blown away by your gorgeous pictures Eliza , bye bye Nic


    love it, thank you for the post!


This adorable dress from Vero Modero’s fall collection was a perfect choice for walking around the plaza at Terra Dei Matti. And it didn’t fly away when it got windy! The plaid pattern flows beautifully from bodice to skirt, and the belt is supple and smooth. What better to wear with such a dress than these flirty black pumps from Purple Moon?

Now if I can just get my hair out of my mouth…

As You Wish

That line is never so poignant as it is spoken just after “You can die too, for all I care!” and just  before “Oh, my sweet Wesley, what have I done?”  Then again, how many lines are out there that can induce a girl to throw herself down a mountain after her captor? Why are those three words so romantic when our current vernacular is as likely as not to be irritating? Some examples:
“Whatever you want”
“Up to you…”
“Just as you like”
“If you say so”
and my favorite:
“Yes ma’am” (gosh I miss the south sometimes)
Somehow it just doesn’t have the same ring.
All this came to mind after receiving Guinevere Decuir’s new “As YouWish” tattoo. There is a slew of new stuff out there so I kind of did a mash-up of whatever I could get to look good together. My sweater and top are new from Janie Marlowe. The cropped sweater is a new mesh item—this color is a customer appreciation gift, but the other available colors are great as well. The yellow undershirt is an addition to Janie’s Needful Things line…and for me Janie’s designs definitely tend to be needful! My shoes are a new design for autumn from Vero Modero.
If you haven’t had a chance to visit Marchesato di Sant’Elia, make some time to visit. It looks appropriately fall-like in these photos but really it could be any season depending on the area you are in and the angle. And check out the Palazzo Donna Emilia—it’s really quite beautiful.
If you’re in the nostalgic mood, here’s a clip of the classic scene:

    Oh, amazing look, Eliza! And a great post. I had to laugh at your other choices for “As you wish.” 🙂

New Stuff Catch Up And Real Life Resonance

Vero Modero’s fall line has been released and immediately upon seeing this new outfit I wished it was something I could pull off in RL. Today in REAL life I spilled tea all over my shirt right before my first period class and had to wear one of my students’ lacrosse T-shirts for the rest of the day. So the look of pleasure and respect I might have gotten with this outfit from Bouqet Babii was replaced with children’s laughter and sympathy. Oh, well. TGIF.

My hair is a new release from Queue Marlowe and it also coincided with my real life, since I actually wear my hair like this sometimes. Of course my hair never looks THIS good.

Finally, I am wearing the new Catalina skin from Apple May Designs. The outfit does cover up a bit of it, but I promise I will show this skin again, so you can see it better. I am always so excited to see anything new that comes out of Apple May.  Finally my beautiful amethyst jewelry set is from Iron Tiger and can be found at the Jewelry Fair, which runs through Sunday, September 25th.
