Breathing Space

I have been meaning to get to this sweet pose by Luna Jubilee since it was released at the Men’s Dept. this month…but it wasn’t until Winter Thorn’s lovely Lisbeth Garden Blanket set was released at Collabor88 that I had the perfect setting for it. Thanks to Stewart for helping me with the pose today.

Sanctuary

While I am a big fan of winter, sometimes I just want to remember that there are places where things are green and growing and it’s warm outside. Cory Edo’s beautiful Iona Conservatory provides an elegant open space for Isla Gealach’s daybed and other bright accessories. After I hide out in here for a bit I’ll be ready to face the New England winter once again.

Breather

In my snowy home state, we used to call these ear-covering snow hats “Elmer Fudd hats.” This one from Damselfly was made for the gents, but a gal gets cold ears too, right?

    You make that hat look fabulous, Eliza!

Midi

It’s time for me to admit that when a new round of Collabor88 opens, the first stall I head for is Ison. Harry Hyx has become one of my all-time favorite designers over the past year. His sweet camisole and Midi skirt are soft and feminine and everything that is good about vintage fashion. Darling Monday’s  dainty Ella heels complement the style. My gorgeous wavy do is by Truth Hawks, who continues to keep the grid in luscious locks.

Yesterday my dog Luna sat mesmerized for about half an hour by what appeared to be sunshine coming in the window…so perhaps sometime soon we might have some blooms in RL as well!

Woods

Little Red Riding Hood is not one of my favorite fairy tales. I find myself saying “really?” too many times. Much more fun and modern is Roald Dahl’s hilarious version which you can read here.
However, I do love the beautiful dress and cloak from Apsara, the cute basket from Tea Soup, and the gorgeous wolf from Alchemy, all at the Enchantment event.

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

And I don’t mean Christmas. Autumn is my undisputed favorite season, coming as it does after my least favorite season, summer. The color in autumn is simply unbeatable by any other season, and the temperatures are stable without being overly hot or cold. It also usually coincides with the beginning of the school year, which makes me think of setting goals and making new beginnings.

I am so thrilled with the botanical autumn offerings this year. Some of my favorites include Lucian’s Designs, Fiddler’s Green and TeddyJr, along with the prolific and always talented Alex Bader. I am also enjoying the lovely mesh designs from We’re Closed.

I only wish for endless perfect days like this one!

Curio Thistle’s mesh horses are so gorgeous and I feel like they are very underused by me. Dragonfyre Designs uses these horses for saddled riding poses and they were perfect for our ride today.
