Evana

With the weird weather we have been having, I feel like I should be far away from the city and in a place like this:

Then of course, since in SL I can actually wear something like this and not frighten the daylights out of everyone, I would grab my adorable new Seashell bikini from Rezzie Luckstone. My lovely skin from Carisma Creations is the perfect backdrop:

And now, I am off to enjoy that water!

Gone to Carolina

I am on my own this weekend while my husband is in North Carolina for a conference. We lived in NC for four years (probably the best four years of my life) and while I wasn’t able to go with him in body, I am definitely with him in spirit. Good thing I have this sweet new dress from coldLogic to keep me weather appropriate for my favorite Southern state!

While a lot of the items available at the Festival of Sin are decidedly not my style, there are some gems to be found. I just adore the new Essences skin from Inka Mexicola, with it’s barely-there smattering of freckles and delicate bone structure visible  beneath the skin of the face and chest. I am wearing it as is here, but there is a variety of eyeshadows and lipsticks available as well. My fun, flirty, dress today is from Antonin1 at Carisma Creations. The subtle ruching on the body and the poofed skirt are the perfect accessory!

    Great look! That is a very nice skin and I love how you’ve got the earring echoing the red shimmer of the dress.

Gentle Grace

It’s been a great week for new releases and a couple of them have been of the ocular variety. Eyes are hard to make well, especially if you want them to be at all realistic-looking. I look at some of my snapshots from my first days in SL and I look like Cruella Daville much of the time—psycho crazy eyes. In this SL day and age there are a lot more options—some uncannily beautiful. Now Agnes Finney has gotten onto the eye bandwagon and she has recently released some lovely designs, which should come as a surprise to no one who knows Agnes’ work. My friend Isabelle was gracious enough to model them for me.

Isabelle is also the embodiment of grace in this timeless classic from Carisma Creations.

When It Comes To You

If we can’t get along we oughta be apart
And I’m wondering where did you get that cold, cold heart
Set me free – sign my release
I’m tired of being the villain of the piece

-Dire Straits, When It Comes To You

This song by the excellent Mark Knopfler came to mind after a conversation that I had with a friend this last week. Since wintertime is right around the corner coldness is about to become omnipresent, and while that means holidays and cheer and time with families, it also signifies death, starkness and emptiness. Perhaps those are the things we try to avoid thinking about with all our holiday merry-making.

The lovely Evana skin from Carisma Creations adds the perfect touch of frosty haughtiness to my cold-hearted woman today, with it’s angular shape and cheekbones and jawline that could slice you right in two. Also contributing to my icy demeanor is the bold new Snowflake set from Yula Finesmith. And what could be more wintry than these ingenious icicle pumps from Harmless Ink?:

The new Catherine lace dress and Bess feather jacket from Agnes Finney add snowy richness to the ensemble. The jacket in particular is meticulously put together and the feather prims fall naturally and beautifully no matter what position you are in. I think this just might be my favorite Agnes of all time.

Stay warm, my friends.
