Stars

121815a

Stars, in your multitudes
Scarce to be counted
Filling the darkness
With order and light

Stars, Herbert Kreztmer, Les Miserables

I love stars, both the real ones and the representations we make for decoration. I used the elegant hanging stars from Striped Mocha to add a little brightness to this room. My house on Studland Bay is part of the Tour of Lights sponsored by Freebird this season, so I invite you to stop by and have a wander through, many of my favorite decorations came from the Winter Gacha Festival this year.

1975

It is a family tradition of mine to pull out old seventies’ photos of my older siblings and laugh at their bell-bottoms, as they hurriedly assure us that they were the epitome of cool at that time. That does not prevent us from laughing uproariously. The 1975 pants from Goji (a new collaborative brand from Damien Fate and Janie Marlowe) make me think that maybe they were right, although I never had the RL chops to pull them off. Just more fabric to trip on, you know. Shylah Honey’s beautiful Henny with it’s long, messy braid is perfect for my retro look.

Sissy Pessoa is releasing this beautiful gown at the Festival of Sin II, which starts August 22nd. A lovely dress requires hair to match, and this elegant updo from Damselfly, Aadi fits the bill. Aadi can be found at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival until September 12th.

Hair Fair 2015

It is nearly here, the event that depletes my Linden balance faster even than the Arcade. Hair Fair starts July 11th and runs through July 26th. This hairstyle is one of the beautiful designs that will be released at Hair Fair by Damselfly. Every transaction made at Hair Fair will donate a portion to Wigs for Kids, the charity of choice for Hair Fair 2015.

Swen

I loved this dress from Glam Affair, released at Uber this month. It’s just the kind of dress I like–not too short, simple, but oh so stylish. I knew I couldn’t take a picture in this dress on any old sim. This dress deserves Milan or Rome. Fortunately the Egoisme mainstore has such a backdrop. My geometric earrings from Cae add a dressy sparkle to this look.

Britannia

The Brittania Village Festival is taking place this weekend and so I made a quick visit to the sim to take my photo today. It was the perfect backdrop for the fabulous Raffia hat from Maxi Gossamer, available at Fameshed this month. I am also wearing Maxi’s Damasc Bangles today, which is the group gift for this month, available for all group members at the front of her store.

Blooming

I have always loved climbing flowers and plants. In the house I grew up in, there was climbing ivy all over the front bricking. Sadly my parents cut it down regularly because it would get into the brickwork and cause damage. But oh, how pretty it was—just like the lovely climbing clematis from Heart at Fameshed this month. My sweet sundress from coldLogic is so summery and perfect for the weather, however inevitable it may be that my legs will be scratched up by various garden plants found in Cory Edo’s Garden Bard Abode side garden.
