Sweet Caroline

One of the sweetest people I have met in SL is Caroline. I’ve known her since my earliest days in SL and have wanted to do a shoot with her for some time. Now, not everyone wants to have their picture taken—I know because I’ve asked! However, Caroline readily agreed and turned out to be a natural, so you’ll probably see more of her! One thing I admire about this talented lady is her ability to rock the blonde look. Being a resigned brunette myself, no one appreciates this more than I do. And when I saw this cute pink winter outfit from Cameron Vasiliov, I knew it would be a perfect fit:

One other relatively recent release is a new tattoo layer set from Izzie Button, who most graciously allowed us to temp-rez at her store so we could do the photo shoot. My cold-flushed cheeks are due to her amazing ability to create facial color variations. Thanks, Izzie!

When Summer’s End Is Nighing

So here’s an end of roaming
On eves when autumn nighs:
The ear too fondly listens
For summer’s parting sighs,
And then the heart replies.

-A.E. Housman, Last Poems, XXXIX

This crisp and lovely jacket from PHILO pushed my mood even more firmly in the direction of the end of summer—the sea-like color, however, reminds me that the end has not come yet! And since I was thinking of things passed and things to come, I chose to wear Jamman’s Zodiac sign necklace. I show my own sign, Leo, here, but if I wanted to be an Aries or whatever the necklace includes all the signs of the zodiac.

The new cycle began today at the Designer’s Circle and I am wearing two of the new offerings today—first my pants from a new outfit called Dina from Crank Design, and my bag from the supremely talented JaneDark Miles at Beauty Code. The bag is available in black and white, for 5oL. I actually used the white version in a post a while back, you can see it here.

    What a sharp look! And such a lovely jacket. The excerpt of the poem? Took my breath away!

Abia Capalini released this adorable outfit at the Designer’s Circle this week and is definitely an outfit to go out and be seen in! I also love this great and slightly wild new hair release from Cameron Vasiliov at Beautiful Dirty Rich.

Coming Up For Air

I am in the middle of grading final exams and finally had to surface for air. Upon logging in I was delighted to find this new hairstyle from Cameron Vasiliov. I love updos and this one is great with it’s off-center beehive! It was the perfect style to wear with this gorgeous gown from Phoenix Rising, which, I just have to say it again, was only 25L!!!!

Also from Phoenix Rising are these beautiful Spring Blossom earrings—so precious! I don’t know how long the 25L sale will last, so get over there while you still can! And don’t forget to look for the great 1L items at the front of the store!
