Let’s Go

I miss the days when I would get off work and come home and GET READY TO GO OUT. It was exciting, that my day was getting ready to get started at 6pm and the night was ahead. Makeup, hair and nails would be freshened up as we headed out into the adventure of the night.

Those were the days. Now mostly I just would like a nap. Continue reading

A storm is threatening

Oh, a storm is threatening
My very life today
If I don’t get some shelter
Oh yeah, I’m gonna fade away

“Gimme Shelter” sing the Rolling Stones and that is what the folks at Japan Fair were all about. Japan Fair was a fundraiser for ShelterBox. It closed last night, but here’s hoping it was a very successful event.

And down by the shore an orchestra’s playing

This month’s Genre showcase is the big band era, those few decades when men were dashing in top hats and tails and women were elegant in gowns full of drama and glamour. No wonder I chose oOo Studio’s Glamorous and Drama pose series for this photo set.

When they begin the beguine
It brings back the sound of music so tender
It brings back a night of tropical splendor
It brings back a memory ever green

This opalescent Satin Doll gown from Cog & Fleur is all sinuously sexy and full of drama with the low back and the softly draping silk charmeuse fabric that is so lustrous in the projector lights. I suppose that with the dress being named Satin Doll, I should have used Johnny Mercer’s song, but I don’t really like it that much – and went for this Cole Porter classic instead.

I’m with you once more under the stars
And down by the shore an orchestra’s playing
And even the palms seem to be swaying
When they begin the beguine Continue reading

Pose Fair: Part 3

Before the Easter festivities start today, I thought I would blog one more post about pose props from the Pose Fair that starts today at NOON. Today I’m bringing you 3 items from an awesome chic, oh wait, it’s ME! Yes, I don’t always make pose props, but when I do, they kick ass.

Savoir Faire (SFS) – The Crows – Pose Fair 2014

Savoir Faire (SFS) – The Dressing Room – Pose Fair 2014

Savoir Faire (SFS) – PhotoShoots&Ladders – Pose Fair 2014

All of the props are mesh or partial mesh and the builds are all mod so you can make changes if you want. Just make a copy first of the original. All props are menu driven and menu adjustable.

Part Two: Pose Fair 2014

Here is round two for the Pose Fair 2014 which starts tomorrow.

I love poses but I especially love pose props and scenes, so that’s what I’ve decided to focus on again today.

Lots of fun stuff this year! I can’t wait to head back when it opens tomorrow and see what else is there. A few designers still have to set up.

Luxe

MiaMai’s Monica Outlander has just released her Luxe collection for spring. It includes a dress, top, pants, jumpsuit and long skirt with items coordinated to mix and match. Items include a HUD that allows you to choose the belts, ribbons and other embellishments so you can coordinate tops with skirts and pants easily. I am wearing the Kalia top with the Anya skirt and chose the ribbon to coordinate with the skirt’s print. Each item comes in solids in cotton and silk and in a range of prints. I love the thought that went into the print and color coordination. Speaking of color coordination, check out the gorgeous gold-tip mani/pedis from FLAIR for Cosmetics Fair.

The Most Important Top On The Grid

My entire outfit was planned around this bandeau from Tres Blah which is new for Collabor88. The colors offered are gorgeous and subtle, and this is a perfect wardrobe pick up because it’s a summer staple. It can go under blazers, and with long swishy skirts. You can dress it up or down and it’s a perfect compliment to our never ending beach party than is Second Life. Well, some of us anyway.

There were also shoes, and tights, but that doesn’t matter now. ALL that matters is this top. You see, I started with the top. I built everything around the top. The top was my focus.

Then the top became my obsession. Continue reading

This moment yearning

0414_003

THIS moment yearning and thoughtful sitting alone,
It seems to me there are other men in other lands

yearning and thoughtful,
It seems to me I can look over and behold them in
Germany, Italy, France, Spain,
Or far, far away, in China, or in Russia or Japan,
talking other dialects,
And it seems to me if I could know those men I should
become attached to them as I do to men in my own
lands,
O I know we should be brethren and lovers,
I know I should be happy with them.

The peaceful light of the ever-shining sun

久方の
光のどけき
春の日に
しづ心なく
花のちるらむ

In the peaceful light
Of the ever-shining sun
In the days of spring,
Why do the cherry’s new-blown blooms
Scatter like restless thoughts?

…Ki no Tomonori
