Fateful

I went to visit Damien Fate’s new mesh build on Fate Island today and enjoyed walking around and checking out the great textures. Kungler’s has a new dress out and I fell in love with this gold one. You can tell fall is on the way when the earthy tones start calling out to you. My dreamy hazel eyes from Ikon Innovia match the dress and the ambience perfectly.

I have been wearing the Cassiopea skin from Aida Ewing of Glam Affair for awhile and it may be my favorite skin of all time. Well, at least until a new one comes out, anyway!

Into The Spirit Of Things

I love the Olympics. Any sport, it doesn’t matter which. Even fencing and curling are interesting during the Olympics. I don’t know why, but it’s a phenomenon that comes around every two years. So today we have a sports post. I think I actually heard Stewart’s groan of dismay when I asked him to do this one.

Basketball isn’t my favorite sport, but it IS an Olympic sport, and there are some fun basketball poses out there. This first one is from this round of Fluid by Y’s Art and Poses called Love & Basketball:

The next cheesy we’re-playing-basketball-but-really-just-canoodling pose is from J&K.

073012b

And last, but not least, Pieces from Glitterati. I don’t think this is actually a basketball pose, but the ball fit, so why not?

073012a

As you can see, we did manage to put our international competitiveness aside for the moment. Since his country is hosting the Olympics he can be sufficiently patriotic, but we’ll see what happens when the REAL Olympic basketball competition begins! Go USA!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Cadmium Red

This week it was my pleasure to do a photo shoot with the great Maxi Gossamer. Most people know that she makes beautiful mesh jewelry but maybe they don’t know just how lovely a person she really is. Not to mention a total babe!!! Is this an SL supermodel I see before me?

063012d

When I saw this color scheduled for the week of July 4th, I couldn’t resist a little patriotism…but why restrict it to just the U.S.A?  London is hosting the Olympics in just a few weeks, so we’re all about to get super patriotic! All that notwithstanding, we did take a little time to give each other a trans-atlantic stare-down.

063012a

In addition to the great jewelry we are wearing, we both rock these completely cadmium red pants from Mesh It. And I just love the US flag themed nails from My Pretty Pixels.

063012b

Congrats to Akayo and Inkie, who have won a hairstyle of their choice at Burley! For next week, I will give away a Maxi Gossamer mystery item that hasn’t been released yet…how’s that for suspense? At least you know that if it’s made by Maxi, it’s gonna be great!

  2. inkie Loudwater

    Great styling of the both of you <3 very detailed

  3. Rudhmellowen

    YAYYYYYY Rocking the UK Flag. You both look great and the UK/US Stare down photo is brilliant, who won the staring contest though? It does give you a proud feeling being a Brit at the moment, for me it does anyway lol… What with the Jubilee and the Olympics, mind you I got a bit patriotic when I left the UK, never had been before. YOU LOOK AWESOME!!!! So excited to see the Maxi Gossamer Jewellery! YAY!

  4. Alexandra

    yeah for the transatlantic stare down. Maxi’s creations totally rocks. And thank you , by the way, for the gift last week. I would comment without the gift, but it was a pleasure , indeed. I myself am popping over to UK the exact day the Olympics start, I had forgotten everything about the dates. But still very easy and cheap! to get the flight ticket

  5. Ayla Qinan

    Love your pics, fantastic! <3

  6. YvetteDonner

    You both look AMAZING! Those red pants are real eye-openers, and I love the trans-Atlantic theme 🙂

  7. ~Caroline

    Perfect redness!! The detailed styling is superb, Eliza.

  8. Anichka Savira

    I love this post! Such a cute look and I love both of you wearing your flags!

  9. Laura Streeter

Fashion For Life 2012: Tres Beau

Today I am wearing two items from Tres Beau—one was a FFL hunt gift and the other was the 55 for Life item. Now, I am admittedly a more casual dresser, even in SL, but when you put on a dress like this one, there is only one thing to do, and that is get ready to go out. Now if I can only find my shoes!

032012b

I love all the time-themed items that we have seen throughout this event, and this one is as gorgeous as can be:

032012c

There is one more day left of Fashion for Life, and our fearless leader Harper Bereford has thrown out a challenge if we break last year’s fundraising record and I have to say, it’s something I’d like to see. So take advantage of the time that’s left, and in the meantime, see ya!

Harvest Time

My friend Gypsy was kind enough to do this photo shoot with me this week—I had been wanting to do it for sometime, but one thing or another kept popping up…you know how it goes. Anyway, we started off with this adorable hay bale and cornstalk group set from Adele Rhiadra.

110911a

Next we tried out a Halloween gift from Katey Coppola. we called this our Charlie’s Angels pumpkin stance (although we are both wearing decidedly more clothes than any Angel I ever saw). Watch out, a pumpkin can do quite a bit of damage, you know!

110911b

I have many beautiful friends in the SL world but Gypsy has got to be right up there at the top of the list. Sometimes she will show up and I will just stare. Not creepily, mind you. Just in that envious, I-hate-you-but-really-just-want-to-be-you way. Just look at that face—no, let’s call it what it is—the whole package;  it’s just stunning. In the pictures where there are two of us, your eyes go right to her. And even when I am a bad friend and don’t talk to her for weeks and then say “Hey, come let me take your picture and by the way could you come up with a stylish outfit?!?!” she doesn’t bat an eye, just shows up looking like a million bucks. She simply stands out because of who she is, and I am grateful that we get to travel this SL path together for a time.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Electric Blue

I actually really like this color—I thought it would be harder to come up with something but as it happens both Gypsy and I found items right away that we wanted to blog.

I did try to find an animation for the Electric Slide (I know that totally gives away my age but oh well), but there was none to be found, so we went with some cute friends poses from the great Katey Coppola.
