Drown

Today is the last day of the Rainy Days round of the Liaison Collaborative and one of the items I wanted to be sure to blog is the lovely Drown pose from oOo. I am also loving all the springtime flowers and decorations as the weather gets progressively warmer. Thanks to Stewart for helping me with the pose.

By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Hannah

I have been wearing the Hannah skin applier from Atelier Pepe since it came out, and I haven’t wanted to change skins yet. Hannah is classic English Rose and perfect on the Catwa Alice head. Caelan Hancroft’s beautiful Nova set will be released tomorrow at Fameshed.

Loryn

Loryn is my favorite of Shylah Honey’s Fameshed releases this month. Another Fameshed release is the always flawless Caelan Hancroft’s daisy necklace. Add to that Neve’s beautiful Bonnie lace dress and there remains nothing left but to close your eyes and smell the flowers…specifically Ariskea’s beautiful tulips.

Dixon

I chose Damselfly’s Dixon design for On9 today because I liked the sassy, bright colored scarf and partially pulled-back look. Meva’s Chiara brass necklace at The Liaison Collaborative also caught my eye.

Traditional

Gos Boutique released the lovely Vicky boots at Fameshed this month, and they are so very like a favorite pair of mine in RL that I knew I would have to blog them. Finding suitable pants to wear with them, however, was a challenge. Pants in SL tend to be of three varieties. One: Skintight from top to bottom; Two: highwaisted with super bell-bottoms (not a bad look, but the trend now is for the bell bottom to be so long that it actually cover the whole shoe. What then, is the point of wearing a cute shoe? Not to mention the potential for tripping and falling over your own clothing.); Three: Tight on the legs but with a baggy and low-riding crotch. I freely admit in my middle aged frumpiness that I have never been able to understand either the fashion sense or the practical idea of having a wad of fabric between your legs that serves no purpose. Does one wipe one’s hands on them? Smuggle things into the movie theater to avoid paying exorbitant prices for snacks? Incubate a marsupial? These are the mysteries of life that confound me. At any rate, I was able to find these great pants from Mutiny in Heaven; fitted and decently waisted and with a leg cut to accommodate my new boots without totally swamping them. Given the amount of ankle boots available on the grid, it would make sense that there would be pants that work with them. They would certainly be welcomed by me! I should mention that if you wear a mesh body these pants are not fitmesh; I had to wear the unrigged version of the boots to make them work with the pants. Another favorite this week is the beautiful Kingslie hair from Shylah Honey of Damselfly. I love the beautiful sweeping textures in this design.

Marie

Genesis Labs are having a sale at their new mainstore right now so I thought it would be a good chance to try one of their mesh heads. I chose Marie, one of the newer heads. Cheekbones are one of the harder things to get right on a mesh head, but Marie’s are subtle and beautiful. There are nine different heads that I saw on sale and the Genesis skin appliers for Slink, Belleza and Maitreya mesh bodies are all free right now. If you haven’t tried a mesh head this might be a good opportunity to try one! One thing to note: be sure to go to the new main store to purchase the heads on sale. If you go to a satellite location you’ll pay full price.

I also loved Maxi Gossamer’s beautiful teardrop necklace at Collarbor88. I was feeling in kind of a red mood today so I chose AskParis’ Oxblood Stretch Sheath at Fameshed to set it off. One thing I always seem to be hunting for is long hairstyles that hang fully or partially behind the shoulders and not in front, so that I can show off jewelry without having to go full-on updo. Shylah Honey provided the hunt treasure today. Thank you, Shylah!
