Amanda

The first (and last!) time I tried out for the track team at school I fell flat on my face. I finally had to stop wearing heels even as an adult because of the many times I tripped on them. My knees are a battlefield of scars. I rejoiced when the late 90s arrived and chunky heels became fashionable, but I only fell down slightly less regularly. My 9th grade students still speak with awe and astonishment about the time I tripped on a backpack and landed in a terrible face-plant, having thrown my brand new computer across the room and into a cinderblock wall. I slipped and fell straight onto my back once in the school courtyard, my water bottle, pencils, car keys and papers flying all over, causing the lone student passing through to hesitate, wondering if he should help me or pretend for both our sakes that he didn’t see me. My husband covered his face in shame earlier this year when I tripped into a shelf of candles at Bath and Body Works and knocked them onto the floor where they shattered into smithereens.

You get the idea?

So when Sands Leavitt releases a sexy dress like this one, I wear it with delight . I also figure that in Kenadee Cole’s beautiful Inferno Heels at The Secret Affair, I can walk around knowing that I will not fall down, run into anyone or anything, or end up bleeding. In real life I would be eyeing those stairs with trepidation.

Noemi

I finally admitted to a friend recently that I wear my mesh head mainly out of laziness because there’s not so much to fix in Photoshop. There! My dirty secret is out! Judge me! Fortunately for me, Monicuzza Babenco released the beautiful Noemi skin applier for both the Logo and the Lelutka mesh heads this month at Shiny Shabby. Also at Shiny Shabby are Luna Jubilee’s latest single poses, which were perfect for today’s shots. The Neve team has also been hard at work and released several designs this week that hint at autumn weather and the end of summer heat.

Socks Appeal

Kenadee Cole’s Ballarina Warmers and Sunami Beck’s Atlantis Jungle shorts put me in the mood for dancing today, and I could find no better place for it than Barnesworth Anubis’ lovely Paris Penthouse 2.0. It helped to ease the pain of having to wait so long to get into Collarbor88 this round. My beautiful dance poses come courtesy of the talented Bastion Flare and Blue Cymbidium.

Evening Ride

When I was sixteen or so, my older brother brought me home an old bicycle similar to this one. It had an extra-wide seat and I was delighted because I have an equally wide posterior. I remember my group of friends making fun of me the first time I took my new (old) bike out for a ride with them. Among the shiny mountain bikes and ten-speeds I guess it did look a little frumpy. But then my friend Jayson asked if he could ride it for a bit and I let him. After about five seconds he laughed and declared how sweet a ride it was, followed by lots of teenager adjectives like “awesome” and “rad” (hey, it was the nineties). And just like that, I went from being old-fashioned and dowdy to being chic, vintage and cool. Everyone wanted to ride my old bike after that. To this day I have never had a bicycle I loved more.

ColdLogic had a big release this week and what better way to try it out than on an evening bike ride,  just like that one so many years ago? The sweet sandals I am wearing are Reign’s most recent Fameshed release.

How do you like my wide seat now? Hmmmmm?

Pacing the Cage

Sometimes the best map will not guide you
You can’t see what’s round the bend
Sometimes the road leads through dark places
Sometimes the darkness is your friend

-Bruce Cockburn, Pacing the Cage

This beautiful dark dress from Valentina E and the gorgeous Reign Sangria heels spoke to my mood today. Damselfly’s untamed Livley is available at We <3 Roleplay.

    Gorgeous as always. Gosh, Eliza, you put me to shame.

    Hush, you. You’re my role model!

Brisk

The lovely, slow fall that we’ve been having is starting to grow some teeth, and sending rain and snow to remind us that this balmy harvest season is about to come to a close. Time to break out the jackets and scarves and boots. Today I have relied on Sissy Pessoa of Baiastice, Jada Tigerpaw of Geek, and Kenadee Cole of Reign to outfit me for the increasingly brisk weather.

Rake

There are two events that have just begun that I look forward to each round. Oneword opened last week, and Rack Poses released this sweet pose there.  My Slink Obsession is also running now and my torn jeans from Somnia are an appropriate choice for all that raking. Barely paid me a visit and helped me with my poses today…when I said rake he clearly had the alternative definition of the word in mind, with his tousled hair and irresistible hipster style. Since I had him, though, I took the opportunity to use Luna Jubilee’s newest group gift pose to display him in all his splendor.
