Mouni Poses has a couple of very sweet releases at Pose Fair and in order to showcase them I called on my friend Stewart to help me today. In the northern hemisphere springtime is slowly starting to arrive (although there IS a big snowstorm heading into my specific area tonight—in New England it’s all about the baby steps) and it is wonderful to see a little color in the landscape again.
My dad always told us that if we weren’t feeling good we should go for a walk outside. Most of the time the walk cleared my head and made me feel better. Dads know stuff. Wayward Winter ends tomorrow so if you haven’t had a chance to check it out you can still do so today and tomorrow.
Gen-Neutral is full of great items this month, including this sweet pose from Infiniti. Izzie’s warm Winter Scarf keeps Stewart from catching a chill. My cardigan, neckerchief and boots are available at The Wayward Market this round.
When I saw Luna Jubilee’s new pose at Sad November, I immediately knew what bench I wanted to use with it. The whole Cere’s Autumn scene by Cory Edo at Uber is a tribute to cool autumn afternoons and cozy blankets. Thanks to Stewart for helping me with the photo today.
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.
For now it seems as though
you are still summer
still the high familiar
yet with a glint
of bronze in the chill mornings
and the late yellow petals
of the mullein fluttering
on the stalks that lean
over their broken
shadows across the cracked ground
Although springtime is heading quickly into summer, the monster winter that has just passed has not yet been banished from my mind. Fortunately, the wealth of summery items coming out lately is washing those icy memories slowly away. Today was the perfect day to relax on the deck of Cory Edo’s beautiful beach hut. This pose is one of Luna Jubilee’s latest, available at The Men’s Dept. Thanks to Stewart for helping me with the pose today.
I’ve had this pose from Luna Jubilee on my to blog list for a couple of weeks and finally today I was able to meet up with my friend Danny and make it happen. While we were shooting, Danny decided that he looked like he was thinking about some other woman in this pose instead of the one draped all over him. Curious, I asked who the other woman was that he was thinking about. He replied immediately, “Joni Mitchell.” Now, a girl just can’t get mad about that. Anyway, he fiddled around a bit with the pose until he felt he looked properly attentive. I’ve included both photos here. Thanks to Danny for the help…I am glad he had Joni to get him through it.
I first met Danny about six months ago, doing what he does best, which is playing music that people love to listen to. (And by people I mean me. Probably some other folks, too.) There is a story behind every song Danny shares, and usually an over-arching set of stories for any given set that he creates. Sometimes he talks a little about the artists or the songwriters—and during those times it is sometimes possible to catch in his voice the tremolo of the truly musically impassioned. If you haven’t had the pleasure of hearing him play, do yourself a favor and listen to one of his sets. You can catch him Tuesday nights at 7pm SLT at Someplace Else or at the Attic on Thursdays at 6pm SLT.
Danny’s pixel transformations have been many. They have also sometimes been hilarious. First there was his “normal” look:
…then there was his Elvis look:
…and my personal favorite, the Santa’s Little Helper look:
Anyway, in a very presumptuous move, I sent him a recent hairstyle and told him that 2009 needed to rest in peace. What has followed has been Danny’s external transformation. Turns out he is quite skilled at putting himself together as he did for this shoot, choosing a classy blazer from Scars and comfortable jeans from Shai. Internally, why, Danny needs no transformation at all. I am lucky to call him my friend.
