While the runway shows are over, Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week continues with the showcase of stores that were featured last week. One of them was Ghee which is known for whimsical and original designs. This summer silk lace dress is a gorgeous example, made with two pieces. a slip and a lace shift that lays over it. As you can see they fit perfectly together.  Continue reading

It’s Uber Gorgeous

Uber has kicked off again with a sumptuous round of elegance and classic beauty. I really like this round, there’s so much exotic pretty available, it’s hard to pick what to like most. Wasabi Pills has a gorgeous hair that has an optional headpiece that is stunning, I need to find a way to incorporate this into my everyday, doncha think? Continue reading

Always a Bridesmaid

Some of the lovely things presented at Penumbra fashion week this time were bridal gowns. I’m not a big fan usually, so I was intrigued though to see something very understated and elegant from Ever An’ Angel for Penumbra and had to put it on. When I was newer in SL, my friends and I would often put on wedding dresses and run around the grid being mad and silly. This gown seemed to deserve an elegant backdrop.  I think I found the perfect place for the SL wedding I won’t have.

It doesn’t have a lot of seating for guests but that’s ok. I might actually bring Gidge back over here for tea and cakes when she’s done working – it’s rather lovely in it’s amazing white wash of light.

There is even a fairytale-like carriage to bring me to the ceremony. Yes, this is a perfect spot.

Now, for the small matter of a groom…

A Puzzling Sunday

I’m having a lazy Sunday morning here in SL. I’ve been tied up in the RL and poor Gidge has been wearing the same shoes for a week. This is almost a tragedy except that they are adorable shoes from House of Hucci at this month’s Collabor88 and therefore, tragedy is averted. Continue reading

How do you Hoodoo?

Helena Stringer - IOF - How do you Hoodoo - 1
World Goth Fair is still going strong, with a little over a week left of the event. It officially ends on May 31st. There are so many musical things happening before then, which will be held at the Club Gothika. You can keep up to date on all the happenings on the Official Site HERE.

I don’t often get a chance to cover Home&Garden items. I don’t own a home, never have. I have always thought the prims best used for other things, on the lands I own. It does create issues, when I do get the urge to cover something that isn’t fashion, or when I feel the need for an actual location to show something off properly.

I picked up this gothic looking skybox from Roawenwood this week, as I felt it would work well with my WGF coverage. If it wasn’t roundish, I might have even used it as my work studio, haha. Alas, it is round, but gives me the ability to easily do setups. Much like a Turnip Skysdome, I can just plunk it down, and fill it with random stuff for the shots I need. Going to have lots of fun with this thing!

It‘s Memories That I‘m Stealing

Glitter Top and Skirt, Sn@tch shirt, Glamistry Shoes, Lelutka and Slink Mesh Body/Head and Glam Affair skin

It’s such a sad old feeling
the fields are soft and green
it’s memories that I’m stealing
but you’re innocent when you dream
when you dream
you’re innocent when you dream

Glitter Top and Skirt, Sn@tch shirt, Glamistry Shoes, Lelutka and Slink Mesh Body/Head and Glam Affair skin

 

Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week wraps up today, though the shops will remain open for the month. Today I am wearing a top and skirt by Glitter called Lauren. It comes with a HUD that allows you to pick six texture options for the top and the skirt. I went for the solid black top and the black skirt with a pinstripe inset. The top is very short and just barely covers the nipples, leaving the underside of the breasts bare. That’s not my preference, so I added a bodysuit from Sn@tch, using their applier for the Slink Physique so I did not have to worry about the Glitter top fitting over the Sn@tch top. Besides, I think the teal and black lace adds a nice touch.  Continue reading

If you love shoes, you always get a jackpot on the 21st

150520_002

Penumbra Fashion Week continues for just a few more days. I decided to feature another dress from A la Folie. This one is Gloria and I chose it for a few reasons. The sunny color is a delight and a wonderful contrast to the cloudy skies. I also love pencil skirt and the Sixties styling. It makes me think of Oscar de la Renta from that era. Then, it is the 21st, which means 21 Shoe, which means the gorgeous shoes that are after the cut are for sale for this day only, and this dress and those shoes seem made for each other.

I have not been to Roche for some time. I dropped in to visit and confirm that it is still one of the loveliest sims on the grid. Continue reading

Zanze at Penumbra Fashion Week

The skirt and top from Zanze for Spring Summer Fashion Week is loose, airy and oh so summery.

 

 

Zanze has a large collection of fabulous outfits for Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week. My favorite is this Strathmere skirt and top.  I love the loose, breezy easiness and the bold, bright colors.

Wrapped In The Silence Of Distance

“For time is the longest distance between two place.”
~ Tennessee Williams

I got out my regular face today and decided to take Alaska Metro for a spin as my skin.  She makes such a lovely face, I wish she had Lelutka appliers – I do love her makeups.

If you didn’t pick up this perfect trench at COLLABOR88 from Emery well there’s still time and heck it’s a few days past opening you can probably even get in now! RIGHT!? Continue reading

Nota de Una Samba

150518_002Second Life’s Penumbra Spring/Summer Fashion Week continues through the 23rd. A la Folie had a big collection including this adorable dance dress, MADNESS. It has a HUD that allows you to choose from six textures for the dress, and six colors for the ruffles and the coordinating shoes and jewelry (not shown). This made me think of the One Note Samba – built on one note, but the other notes are sure to follow.

This is just a little samba, built upon a single note
Other notes are sure to follow but the root is still that note
Now this new one is the consequence of the one we’ve just been through
As I’m bound to be the unavoidable consequence of you.
