Zig Zag

Valentina Evangelista’s Zig Zag dress at Shiny Shabby this round was one of those impulse buys that I fall prey to once in awhile…I saw the seriously gorgeous pattern and bought it without looking very closely at it, only to put it on later to find that it allows for your girls to swing wild and free. Very 18th century France—perfect for exposing your bobbling breasts to the world. Since this is not a wild and free sort of blog, though, and because I am more of the heavy-gusseted-hardware-for-chest-immobilization type anyway, I wore one of Izzie’s marvelous tank appliers to add a little layering effect. Mina Nakamura’s flowing locks from Hair Fair were perfect for this outfit.

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.

The first (and last!) time I tried out for the track team at school I fell flat on my face. I finally had to stop wearing heels even as an adult because of the many times I tripped on them. My knees are a battlefield of scars. I rejoiced when the late 90s arrived and chunky heels became fashionable, but I only fell down slightly less regularly. My 9th grade students still speak with awe and astonishment about the time I tripped on a backpack and landed in a terrible face-plant, having thrown my brand new computer across the room and into a cinderblock wall. I slipped and fell straight onto my back once in the school courtyard, my water bottle, pencils, car keys and papers flying all over, causing the lone student passing through to hesitate, wondering if he should help me or pretend for both our sakes that he didn’t see me. My husband covered his face in shame earlier this year when I tripped into a shelf of candles at Bath and Body Works and knocked them onto the floor where they shattered into smithereens.

You get the idea?

So when Sands Leavitt releases a sexy dress like this one, I wear it with delight . I also figure that in Kenadee Cole’s beautiful Inferno Heels at The Secret Affair, I can walk around knowing that I will not fall down, run into anyone or anything, or end up bleeding. In real life I would be eyeing those stairs with trepidation.

Flux Sur Mer

Flux Sur Mer is a beautiful new sim with several differently styled areas—it was the perfect backdrop for my photos today. As you can see, I am still experimenting with my new mesh heads and learning the ins and outs. I do like that there is a minimum of correction that needs to happen on a mesh head photo…I guess I can add that to my pros column! My luminous skin applier today is a new release from Ele Brandi of Modish.

Skin Fair 2015: !Imabee

Today’s skin is another that edges on the very realistic-looking, with a fresh, young complexion. In fact one of my students looks remarkably like this. Ah, youth.  Imogen  is my first skin from Imabee, but I think it will not be my last. Imabee can be found on Sim 2 at Skin Fair.

Pacing the Cage

Sometimes the best map will not guide you
You can’t see what’s round the bend
Sometimes the road leads through dark places
Sometimes the darkness is your friend

-Bruce Cockburn, Pacing the Cage

This beautiful dark dress from Valentina E and the gorgeous Reign Sangria heels spoke to my mood today. Damselfly’s untamed Livley is available at We <3 Roleplay.

Pants

Barely wanted to blog the lovely new pants from Kauna, and I was only too happy to oblige him, especially because that’s all he wanted to wear. Okay by me.  Barely says Ross Myhre is putting out the highest quality menswear on the grid right now…have a look and see if you agree with him.

Diamond Tears

Tears, idle tears, I know not what they mean,
Tears from the depth of some divine despair
Rise in the heart, and gather in the eyes,
In looking on the happy autumn-fields,
And thinking of the days that are no more.

-Tears, Idle Tears, Alfred Lord Tennyson

Maxi Gossamer’s delicate Diamond Tears necklace matches the ethereally fragile Flutter dress from Teefy at this month’s round of Collabor88.

I am also delighted to see different skin appliers being released for the Belleza mesh body. This one is called Patty from the talented Izzie Button.

Casanova

There’s a hole in my soul
I can’t fill it, I can’t fill it
There’s a hole in my soul
Can you fill it, can you fill it?

I wanted to find some way of wearing the spectacular Casanova tattoo from Bolson at this round of the Men’s Dept. Not being a fan of baring it all in pretty much any life, you won’t get the whole idea of just how beautiful the details are in my photos…but it may be enough to make you run to the Men’s Dept. to check it out in all its glory.

Inka Mexicola has released yet another gorgeous skin for The Dressing Room—I love the scowling intensity, set off by Tommy Fairplay’s rumpled locks. 101514b
