Femme

I remember watching Luc Besson’s La Femme Nikita after returning to the United States after spending a couple of years in France. I remember feeling very cosmopolitan because now I could watch French films  without English subtitles—the very height of sophistication. I was not prepared, though, for how big an impact it would have on me. Though there have been several creditable remakes both in film and television, none of them has come close to the raw, gritty and fantastic 1990 original with the wonderful Anne Parillaud. If you haven’t seen it, give it a whirl. It’s pretty good with English subtitles too.

My World

My World is one of Luna Jubilee’s newly released poses and is wonderfully evocative, as her poses tend to be. My top and skirt by the talented Sands Leavitt are available at Uber this round, and the Balloon Earrings from Caelan Hancroft add a quirky note to today’s style and can be found at the Cosmopolitan Event. Thanks to Stewart (who is getting dragged into more and more of my posts lately!) for helping me with the pose.

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.

Attic

My friend Barely took me to this indie club one night about six months ago and there I met Leto and Steel, owners of the Attic and music spinners extraordinaire.

011715a

I’ve been to a few clubs in my time in SL, but this one is different. Leto and Steel as well as every other DJ I have heard play at the Attic are true music-loving (sometimes borderline fanatical) dorks who know their stuff, and I have enjoyed every set I ever heard there. Well, except for the techno-night. But still, there has to be the exception, right? The folks at the Attic are friendly and welcoming so if you’re looking for an non-presumptuous place to hear some good tunes, go sometime. Leto and Steel will take care of you.

P.S. If you are an American Horror Story fan, you’re going to like this place.

Rake

There are two events that have just begun that I look forward to each round. Oneword opened last week, and Rack Poses released this sweet pose there.  My Slink Obsession is also running now and my torn jeans from Somnia are an appropriate choice for all that raking. Barely paid me a visit and helped me with my poses today…when I said rake he clearly had the alternative definition of the word in mind, with his tousled hair and irresistible hipster style. Since I had him, though, I took the opportunity to use Luna Jubilee’s newest group gift pose to display him in all his splendor.

Notting Hill

My friend Barely crossed my path the other day looking so dapper in Cocoro Lemon’s shawl coat that I had to arm-wrestle him into posing for me.  He did so at the lovely Notting Hill sim by Elvira Midnight, who has graciously opened her sim to the public for the last few days.

Break

Dysfunctional Dolly Designs released a great library set at the Home and Garden Expo recently, and I wanted to find a way to work it into another post. Fortunately my friend Barely wandered into proximity looking appropriately studious and classed up my library a bit…though even he needed to take a break from crouching over books all day.

Black & White Portrait Challenge

Strawberry Singh has posted another challenge for bloggers and this was one that I thought would be fun to try, and not too time-consuming. A great skin is going to look good whether your picture is in color or in black and white, and such is the case with my new skin from Atomic. Also gorgeous regardless of color is just about anything that Maxi Gossamer releases, such as the Anael Angel necklace, which will be available at the With Love Fair starting on Friday.

    very pretty

    As I said on Flickr, there is definitely a little of the Scarlet Johansen glamour in this photo of you Eliza… Cant put my finger on exactly what but I agree with Berry. It is very very pretty!

Merry

Diesel Works just released a bunch of cute holiday poses, one of which is this great Merry Christmas pose that is a group gift.

I found these fun ugly holiday sweaters by Phunk on the Marketplace and thought they were the perfect combination for the cheesiness that is holiday photos.

Décor is courtesy of mostly Trompe L’Oeil, with a few other things thrown in. Cory Edo has most recently released this mesh cottage at Collabor88 and the lit holiday tree can be found at Fameshed.

Peace

The Peace on Earth Hunt #6 is under way and there are some wonderful gifts to be found. This lovely skybox is the hunt gift from Silent Woods, and the beautiful Jacqualicious Christmas tree adds a nice touch. My favorite things yet though are the divine western boots from Pelleteria Morrisey. Check out the Peace on Earth hunt website for more information! My pal Bastion helped me out with this photo and he is sporting some great items from the Men’s Dept.
