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.

Dandy

There’s a lot to like at the Gen-Neutral event that opened on the 12th. For today’s photo I chose Gocha Merlin’s Dandy Girl pants and the comfortable stump hoodie from Vinyl. My pose today is one of Luna Jubilee’s created for this event.

The Arcade June 2014

I was fortunate enough to get onto the off-sim shopping boat quite early on this round, and I have to say I am a big fan of cam shopping. No avs to walk around, faster rezzing—I highly recommend it.

Diarmuid Miklos and Andred Qinan make some of my favorite items in SL and for this round of the Arcade they continue their tradition of creative excellence.

Also to love from this round is the banjo from Zigana, and the perfectly wild Boardwalk Breeze hair from Clawtooth.

    Oh no! You took off your mask…now you’ll turn into some post-apocalyptic mutant hungering for human flesh!

Follow Me

One of Luna Jubilee’s new poses this week reminded me of a John Denver song that I have always loved.

Follow me, where I go
What I do and who I know
Make it part of you to be a part of me
Follow me, up and down
All the way and all around
Take my hand and say you’ll follow me

-Follow Me, John Denver

It’s one of the sweetest love songs I can think of. When Stewart came to help me with this photo he asked me if we were running off to Gretna Green, and given my musical musings that seemed a pretty appropriate place to run off to.

I also wanted Stewart to wear one of the great kilts by Gocha Merlin at the Men’s Dept. this month. And finally, thanks to my dear Rudhmellowen Laguna and Hellbone Barbosa for providing our getaway vehicle…Stewart and I were able to run off in style!

    Awww honey, that’s so romantic… You’re more than welcome with the Bike, it looks great and goes perfectly with your outfit hehe! You both look awesome, but question… Is Stewart doing it the real Scottish way? A Scotsman wears nothing under his kilt hehe!

Domestic

When I saw this cute dress from Go! I laughed because it looks so similar to an apron I wear around the house to do cleaning, laundry, etc. Mine is pink and white, too, but I won’t submit everyone to a photo of me in hausfrau regalia.

I took my pictures today at the Lemon Moon Tea Room and Café, which is where I would live if I could.

Feeling Corny

There are plenty of fall-themed regions to visit this year, but if you are in the mood for a good old cornfield complete with ghosts then check it out, it makes for some fun wandering about.

For my cornfield wandering I chose this adorable tie-dress by Gocha Merlin. I love the details and the cute floral accents. And the sentiment written across the back is a good one to remember at any time! Walking in a cornfield also requires good footwear and these adorable boots fit the bill exactly with their subtle summer-to-fall coloring.

My skin is from a new-to-me designer, Gianni Broda. This beautiful skin named Godiva was only 30L and once I put it on I did a double take. Here’s how it went in my mind:
-30L? Well, at least the G of the Alphabet Challenge won’t break the bank…
-Wait. Only 30L? For a skin??? Let’s have a look….
-Holy heck!!! 30L??? It’s gorgeous!

This is more a mature looking skin, but still retains a healthful smoothness.  I particularly love the bone structure across the bridge of the nose and the cheeks.

As You Wish

That line is never so poignant as it is spoken just after “You can die too, for all I care!” and just  before “Oh, my sweet Wesley, what have I done?”  Then again, how many lines are out there that can induce a girl to throw herself down a mountain after her captor? Why are those three words so romantic when our current vernacular is as likely as not to be irritating? Some examples:
“Whatever you want”
“Up to you…”
“Just as you like”
“If you say so”
and my favorite:
“Yes ma’am” (gosh I miss the south sometimes)
Somehow it just doesn’t have the same ring.
All this came to mind after receiving Guinevere Decuir’s new “As YouWish” tattoo. There is a slew of new stuff out there so I kind of did a mash-up of whatever I could get to look good together. My sweater and top are new from Janie Marlowe. The cropped sweater is a new mesh item—this color is a customer appreciation gift, but the other available colors are great as well. The yellow undershirt is an addition to Janie’s Needful Things line…and for me Janie’s designs definitely tend to be needful! My shoes are a new design for autumn from Vero Modero.

If you haven’t had a chance to visit Marchesato di Sant’Elia, make some time to visit. It looks appropriately fall-like in these photos but really it could be any season depending on the area you are in and the angle. And check out the Palazzo Donna Emilia—it’s really quite beautiful.

    Oh, amazing look, Eliza! And a great post. I had to laugh at your other choices for “As you wish.” 🙂
