Solaria

A couple of days ago I stumbled upon this beautiful build by Maizon Rayna and Maveryck Breen. Maizon is well known for her fashion designs at Terra D’Ombra, and in my opinion is one of the best builders on the grid. The textures and design are gorgeously done. If you get a chance definitely take a wander around the place.
To do the locale justice I chose a form fitting mesh design from Pretty Lady Designs and a chic fur stole from Laville. Izzie Button’s warm golden leather clutch helps me blend into the sunny, Mediterranean locale.

My shoes are a new release from Nardya Rousselot. This color is actually a hunt gift available for just 10L—aren’t they sweet? My jewelry is from Dandara Swords at the Pumpkin Head. Dan was one of the first friends I made in SL and she has really been a great resource for me in a lot of ways—but today I show one of her Vintage Fair creations in pearl and green opal, which perfectly match my deep green eyes from Ikon Innovia.

Phoenix Dying

My friend Dandara Swords released these beautiful Phoenix earrings at the Jewelry Fair and it got me to thinking about the famous phoenix-rising-from-the-ashes legend. If you’ve read or seen Harry Potter then you’ve seen one interpretation. Usually the phoenix is an inspiring talisman—life will go on, the unquenchable hope for the future…you know the drill. What we forget sometimes is that the phoenix spends a fair amount of time as ashes, as nothing more than a pile of discarded carbon particles, without hope, without life, nothing. Not as insipiring, is it, although it is extremely relevant to life. Is it any wonder that we prefer to think about the phoenix in its fiery, transformative glory?

The Fire sim at the Jewelry Fair is the perfect  backdrop for such a creature, as is this lovely gown from Ley-Ly.
