Love Comes Walking In

Contact is all it takes
to change your life
to lose your place in time
Contact, asleep or awake
Coming around
you may wake up to find

There she stands
in a silken gown
Silver Light
Shining down

Love comes walking in

ARCADE PREVIEW: Belleza #5 – Make It Your Own

The thing about skins is, none of us wants to look like the other one.  But for the awesome price of the ARCADE it’s hard to pass up a great skin like Emily. You can always opt to make some tweaks to the skin that make it more YOU, your signature look, than just the out of the box skin.  Three very small adjustments personalized this #5 version of Emily.

Moving In

0826_004

Well, I decided to go for it and move into the Brooklyn Carriage House from Trompe L’oeil. It’s smaller than the big brownstone I was living in and requires a lot less furniture, but I ended up buying some furniture anyway, because that’s what happens when you move. You need new things. Among the new things are this lovely vanity that’s also from Trompe L’oeil and a big blue velvet bed from there as well.

I added this glorious lounge/daybed from Mudhoney that can be found at this month’s Collabor88. The golden key embellishment at the bottom and the gorgeous tassels place it firmly within the Odyssey inspiration and that blue is a rich as the Aegean Sea.

Casual Friday: So Casual I’m Tardy

Gabby and I went FLF shopping and I had to stop off at Vespertine because I wanted the wall art for my house. I happened to stumble into her gacha room with all of her old ARCADE round items – and OMG I WANTED THIS CAR. I gave it a few pulls, got some cute pieces from this set (I already had several) but alas. NO CAR. Continue reading

House Hunting

0821_005

I have been thinking about moving, downsizing from my lovely, but large, 5th Avenue townhouse and have been on the lookout for something marvelous. I think I found it at Collabor88 this month. I mean look at that red door! We need more red doors in our lives.

This month’s Collabor88 is inspired by the Odyssey and I am loving the many interpretations that designers are coming up with. I am fondest of those that are less literal – like this mini-dress from Tres Blah. It was a bit short for my taste so I added some leggings from Maitreya to avoid flashing my hoo-hah around.

So this carriage house from Trompe Loeil appeals to me as a new home. The only problem is that I will have to move. I hate moving – not as much in SL as in RL – but I still like to stay in one spot. However, I am pretty sure I will sign a lease on this place and move in shortly. I love carriage house apartments. When I was in college, I had a friend who rented a carriage house. It was gorgeous inside and the rent was reasonable, best of all, though, it was on an estate – so there were these magnificent grounds that he was able to use – so long as he scheduled with the owners. Lucky guy!

Down the Rabbit Hole

IOFPOST1

I got so excited when I was asked to submit a weekly lingerie post. I adore lingerie and it gave me the perfect excuse to buy more, and to explore some new stores selling it.

You see, lingerie is not like other clothes. It’s special. Choosing lingerie is about how it makes me feel, rather than how it looks. It’s not like it gets seen by many people!

This piece is from a new store to me, HAS BEEN. Terrie Dreadlow’s designs have a hint of the fifties to them and the demo for the sweetness lingerie instantly transported me to a feeling of coy retro cuteness. The bodysuit is all mesh, and fit me perfectly straight out of the box. Don’t you just love when that happens.

It came with a HUD that offers a huge variety of colour options. You can customise the front panel, sides, bows and the ribbons that run down the length. Every colour and every texture are gorgeously detailed. Plus, it’s only 99L. There’s no excuse not to explore your inner bunny!

The shoes were also from HAS BEEN and included the same HUD with tons of options. These were in the lights pack. There is also a darks pack.

Lingerie doesn’t have to be all lace, frills and barely there. It just has to make me feel special. This set does that and so much more.
