07/10/2018 – All the leaves are brown…

…and I’ve decided to wear brown too.

Every first Sunday of the month, a bunch of designers have some cool stuff out for a discounted price of 69l$. Find out everything you want to know about SL Syndicate Sundays here.
This round I’ve picked the cute cottage house from Funky Junk, pumpkins from QE Home and gorgeous nails from Dark Passions.

I love putting together outfits with bits and pieces in my inventory, digging up oldies but goodies, going shopping for the perfect piece to compliment the rest. Like those rings from Yummy that add a little something to my hands, making my nails pop. Or that cute little Blueberry skirt from an old Luxe Box combined with a fairly recent Tres Blah jacket and that elephand necklace from Bliensen + MaiTai…

Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans

“Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans.”

“Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans.” Mania Khan must know swans, they do love the quiet, the lee side of an island lake, where the wind does not ruffle the water. I thought of that quote when I saw the {anc.} swans at The Arcade and decided to rez them on a quiet eddy of water with some flowers (also from anc) and trees from HPMD.

JUMO has released an amazing gown. It’s an entire outfit, really, with shoes, jewelry and the works, but I like to mix and match and showcase different ways to wear things, so even though an outfit is lovely, I seldom wear it right out of the box. Part of the joy and purpose of blogging is showing how clothing is more versatile that it first appears, mixing it with other items as I have here – adding this jacket from Peqe, for example, mainly because I prefer a shrug or jacket over something strapless. That beautiful sideswept hair is from Wasabi Pills.

Wearing a ballgown can sometimes be a balancing act even when you are not on a tightrope. After all, the overall zeitgeist of SL fashion has become more informal with ever passing year. I don’t care, though, I love formal gowns – in my first and my second lives. Sadly I cannot afford so many in my first. This gown comes with several alternatives including the sheer lace attachment that covers its entirety as well as option flexi skirts that add fullness and flow to the skirt. They come in gold or a deep rose red.

The sheer lace overdress may be a bit polarizing. It does not bling, but there is some script I think that makes the texture seem to sparkle. I wore it this morning and got rave compliments on one hand, but also an IM asking if there was some glitch because “it looks like it’s tuned to a channel that has no reception. It’s off the air.” 150606_012

 

However, it is an add on, so it can be left off – which gives you an equally brilliant gown. That peacock is a pet, by the way and follows voice commands. I sent him to his perch so I quit knocking him in the head with my dress as he followed me about. He sat there and would occasionally fan his plumage. Such a lovely boy.

By the way, speaking of bird, do you not just love this flying bird ring from Swallow? It’s at The Arcade and not to be missed. Alaskametro released these new nails and I swear I could not have found a better complement to this gown if I had commissioned one to be made for it.

Other additions to the outfit include this mask from David Heather and the headdress from LODE. Both of them can be found at The Arcade.

There is a rose

Women love drop-dead sexy dresses, short dresses, long dresses, all kinds of dresses, but the dresses that make us go “oooh” and do cartwheels in our minds are the truly romantic, soft and innocent dresses like this cream dress from Hal*Hina. This is the sort of dress our dolls wore, a barely there cream, soft pink roses, a wispy layer of organza, ribbons in our hair. We put these kinds of dresses on and hear harp music played by cherubs in clouds.

Hal*Hina is definitely a find. A store with lovely feminine dresses, many for only L50. There’s also a luscious green dress available free to group members. Continue reading

I saw Felice Haruka’s sleek and elegant accessorizing of this dress and drooled on my keyboard. Quickly making my way to Tuli, I picked up this gorgeous dress and then decided to accessorize to take it in a different direction from her oh-so-elegant outfit to something a bit more playful and funky. Check out Felice’s composition here: http://feliceharuka.blogspot.com/2008/04/tuligwen.html
