Venus Fly

Bee.Bu has two pose singles pose sets at Pose Fair as well as a couple of pose props. I chose the Venus Fly single set today, mainly because they are great poses for showing off outfits with style, like this gorgeous dress from Lybra and shoes from Plastik, both available at The Liaison Collaborative. Since St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, Caelan Hancroft’s beautiful new set at Cosmopolitan will give me a boost of luck.

Relief

The heat and humidity have passed and we are back into autumn weather. There is a lot to choose from for autumn-wear this month. My comfy sweater is from VinCue and can be found at The Seasons Story event. Also at The Seasons Story is the beautiful Katya Autumn skin from Izzie Button. My boots are one of the many great things on offer at Collabor88, and my perfect pulled-back braid is a recent release from Truth Hawks.

Of Snow and Smooching

The northeast of the US has gotten a whole lot of snow in the last week. This is a good thing, since up until now we’ve had pretty much nothing. But it does make for some not-so-fun time shoveling. Another funny snow phenomenon is the  bundling and de-bundling of children as they come in and out of the house, leaving piles of coats and boots and mittens and what-have-you all over the place. Snow is beautiful though, there is no denying it, and if you get the right kind you can throw snowballs at everyone including the photographer.

Luna Jubilee of !bang poses makes some of the sweetest, most romantic couple’s poses on the grid. That may be because she is such a sweet and romantic person herself, but I always find myself checking out her store to see what adorable mushiness she has come up with lately. One of her latest poses is Acting Coy, and it gave Stewart and me a fun and snuggly moment, making us  both smile. Keep it up, Miss Luna!

Stewart is wearing a great sweater today by bleak . from last month’s Mens’ Dept.  There is only one thing keeping this design from being flawless and that is that the front and back patterns do not line up exactly, so you can see I photoshopped the back side of the sweater a bit. However, the design is so so so gorgeous that I

insisted Stewart wear it for this shoot. I look forward to more work from this designer.

Detour

Recently it seems like every road that leads to where I work is under construction. Just when I find an unobstructed road, it goes under construction within the week. Sometimes public transportation works, but buses have to travel the same roads,  so it would seem I am out of luck. For the next few years at least, clear roads will  be nothing but a dream!

Vintage Fair Take 2

In all honesty this is a much a Collabor88 post as a Vintage Fair post, but both are worthy events!

My shorts, boots and glasses and handbag are all from Vintage Fair, and I particularly love the boots, which are from a new-to-me designer. So much to love!

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 🙂

    Muy patriótico, preciosa en cadmium.

Big Hair

Curly hair fascinates me. I had a roommate with super-curly hair once and I could spend hours sitting there pulling the strands of her curls straight, letting them go and watching them spring back into the curly shape. Needless to say she was a very patient and forbearing friend! My own hair in RL is somewhere between straight and curly, but with no uniformity, so instead of nice volume I get either a limp mess or a rats’ nest. Just another reason to be grateful for SL hair! And for this style in particular, from Sebastien Aries at Shag.

Also new to love today is the brand new Kim set from Endra Graves at Artistry by E. My sexy henna art-tattoos are courtesy of Guenever DeCuir at Collisions.

TGIF

Another week comes to an end…another opportunity to wear some fabulous items from SL designers. Today I wanted something casual and this short dress from Rezzie Luckstone was just the thing. It’s simple, it’s short-but-not- too-short, and it comes in all sorts of colors. A perfect staple to have in your SL inventory. My scarf is from League—there always seems to be just the perfect item or accessory at that store!

I am also reminding everyone that today is the last day to enter my giveaway of Maxi Gossamer’s mesh Shell Earrings fatpack! If you want to enter, comment on last week’s Color Challenge post today  before 11pm SLT.  I am wearing one of the colors in my photos below… you know you want them, don’t you??? I will be announcing the three winners on the next color challenge post on Saturday, Jan.21st!

Put A Coat On

Today I made the very big mistake of thinking that today was going to be like every other day weather-wise that we have had lately; namely forty-degree weather even though it is January. It would appear that Mother Nature finally woke up from her nap and realized she had been quite remiss with regards to her winter weather! I walked out the door in my jacket and my hair (which was still partially wet because yeah, I’m just super chic like that) immediately froze. So I had a choice, run back inside and get a coat, or run for the car. I chose the latter. This seemed like a good idea until I got to work and had to walk a quarter mile down the street to my school. Let’s just say lessons learned.

So my girl today is similarly inappropriately dressed, in low-rise leather pants and a wispy short-sleeved thing from League. My only nod to practicality are my boots from J’s and my arm warmers—and even they are too lacy for much protection. But they are so cute! And I had been waiting for a chance to wear this great feather necklace from Graffitiwear.

I am really enjoying trying out the different mesh hairstyles that are increasingly available—this one is from Wasabi Pills and you can see that my av managed to get her hair dry before leaving the house!

Back To Work

Tomorrow the holiday break ends in RL and it’s time to go back to work. For my last day as a free woman I chose to try out Luna Jubilee’s new Snowday windlight setting. You can download it from Luna’s website. It was perfect for my dreamy and slightly blue mood at the impending end of vacation. I stayed warm with a thick fur jacket from Reila Karu and a snug cap from IrEn.
