Boho and Pup

I tend to love the end of events, those last days when I don’t have to fight the throngs of people to get in. I don’t have to fight to see the vendor or deal with the crashy nature of too many avatars pulling around too many other avatars on leashes. Continue reading

Thanksgiving Prep Is IN EFFECT!

Oh my GOSH you guys the Thanksgiving holiday is almost here! I’ve got so much to cook and get ready because I hope to have some guests at my new bigger house this year! It’s a lot for one girl to do, but I know I can be ready before tomorrow.

Lacuna released two tone turtlenecks that are perfect for a cute look but casual comfort.  I had made an early run to Casa de Shai for her new polka dotted jeans release and just happened to pick them up in a chocolate color to coordinate – PERFECT!

My cat leaves hair everywhere, I should hire a maid because vacuuming is so tiring. And now I have such a bigger space to vacuum. Continue reading

Sunday Morning Coming Down

Belleza Melissa_004

One of the exciting bonuses of Vanity Universe Skin Fair is that you know that Tricky Boucher of Belleza will have a new skin to fall in love with all over again. Tricky is not one of the skinners that rolls out something new every few weeks. Instead, he spends a long time on each skin, perfecting it so that when you go to Belleza, you know you will get one of the finest skins on the grid. And this skin, Melissa, does not disappoint.

Ooh, Baby, It's a Plaid World


Vogue made me happy by telling me that plaids are in this season. Of course, I could have told them that plaids should always be in, but that’s another story. Seriously though, can something as beautiful as this gorgeous full-length plaid taffeta skirt from Casa del Shai ever be anything but in? If this be plaid, give me more!


I shot this set at Alpha Point – a sim I discovered linguistically. I have shot many times at Omega Point. I don’t know why it took me this long to wonder whether there being an Omega meant there was an Alpha, but it did. I did a search and there it was. Alpha and Omega – should have known long ago.

Bandana Day 2010


It’s Bandana Day – when we remove our hair and don bandanas in a show of solidarity for the many people who lose their hair during chemotherapy. If you have not got a bandana, pop over to Hair Fair and pick up one of the many innovative and fun bandanas created to raise funds for Wigs For Kids, the charity for which Hair Fair is raising funds.

In the Subway Take Two


Another great jacket and pants set featured at Modavia Fashion Week comes from Shai Delacroix of Casa del Shai. It’s the Vixen Knit Kimono with Leopard Print pants. I really love the texturing on this outfit. In fact, I oohed and aahed like an idiot while watching it come down the runway at the show.


I shot this again at the Subway Station that Urban Decay sells. This is in the front part of the station before the turnstiles that lead to the tunnel.

Shai Delacroix is back in a big way. After taking a short hiatus from designing and producing new clothing, she has released three new pieces in the last month. In contrast to the bright summery swimsuit and sundress I blogged about the other day, this newest release is all about classical elegance. Reminiscent of Grecian gowns, her new Eleganza is all about elegance in form. The color of the cocoa one made me think of another of the Utopia World Expo sims – Utopia01 – no love.

Utopia01 is a beautiful sim with the rich turquoise landscape. It requires patience as it’s no fly and the walk way appears in front of you as you move through it – so don’t walk to fast or you will fall in the water. To see some other people’s visions of the sim, there’s a nice selection of photos at KoinUp.
