Calm Waters

Leezu’s Cora skirt cries out to be worn at the beach, and so today I visited the Santaurio sim. This year summer is taking a long long LONG time to get here and I am craving some beach time. You can find this skirt at Leezu’s store at Fashion For Life.

Private Life

Strawberry Singh issued a challenge on her blog about what our avatars do when we log out of Second Life. There doesn’t happen to be a lot of difference between SL Eliza and RL Eliza, so when I log off, Eliza either sits down to grade the endless papers that are the constant companion of teachers, or she falls exhausted into bed. Usually when I am grading I have my great big dog Luna on the couch with me, but she wouldn’t fit on this sweet couch from Cory Edo, so Eliza has settled for a cat instead.

Twisted Color Challenge: Crucible’s Pom

Here is the lovely color twist combination for this week:

I’m gonna say it, it made me feel a little Halloweeny when I first saw it, but a walk through Fashion For Life 2013 soon helped me get away from the ghost and goblin ideas.

Almost everything I am wearing today is from Fashion For Life. As usual, it’s an event that everyone should attend, even if you are not into fashion. So far my favorite build has been the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and if you haven’t done so make sure you take a minute to go all the way up to the top of the build to see the hidden garden. Beautiful.

Fashion for Life 2012: Leezu, Riddle, Tres Beau

It’s another fabulous day at Fashion for Life. Today I decided to take my photos at the amazing It’s Time sim, with it’s gorgeous, celebratory clocks. Today I am wearing the beautiful Nuage skirt from Leezu Baxter. Leezu is one of the four sponsors of this gorgeous sim. It took some doing to find a top to match those poppies, but I found perfection in this dress top from Riddle.

Complicated

Maybe my fellow bloggers will understand me on this one, but sometimes taking photos in SL is magical and everything comes together beautifully. Other times it takes forever trying to get everything work right. Today was one of the latter instances. But, in the end, the outfit was chosen, the location found, and photos taken. I couldn’t help but feel better wearing these great mesh boots from Leverocci. My skirt today is a lovely combination of mesh awesomeness and detailed artistry from Leezu Baxter.

And as the big love day approaches, we are starting to see a lot of Valentine’s-themed items. This gorgeous necklace is not necessarily for Valentines Day, but it fits the theme.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Champagne

It’s BACK! Here we are in a new year and looking forward to 52 weeks of colorful inspiration. To learn about the color challenge check out Luna Jubilee’s introductory post. To start off: Champagne–which I imagine was consumed in copious amounts last night. And since we are reflecting on past years and looking forward to the new I wanted to pull out some old favorites. I have always loved this gown from Leezu Baxter. It’s an older dress from 2010 or (yikes!) 2009. But the exploding skirt prim and beautifully patterned bodice never lose their appeal. So to everyone, keep in your minds the very best of the past and look forward to a bright future.

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.
