The corset and stocking/shoe gacha from Azuri at the Arcade is a perfect way to start your day if you’re feeling like admiring your own ass, which I am.
I really do like simple, but nicely made corsets in SL and they’re hard to come by. A corset is a hardworking piece of foundation – it’s not romp about lingerie. It’s made with BONING (snark) which makes it impossible to breathe, and is cinched up tight to create that hourglass look. It restrains your fat (if you have it), it crushes your organs, it demands conformity along the lines of it’s own design.
I’ve surrendered my lindens to the Gods of the Arcade and I have NO regrets. My cup runneth over with joy and happy. The things I deleted have been replaced with new, wonderful things and I’m ready for the season of happy!
Some of my first pass loves are the amazing folk art pieces for the kitchen from The Secret store and these HUSKIES from Jian. Oh gosh there are so many and SO SO SO CUTE. Continue reading →
I am loving this side wrap dress from Ison. It comes in several summer colors as well as a few prints. I opted for this lovely blue, one of my favorite colors as I believe you can tell looking at the cabin and furnishings.
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!
