But there is always a November space after the leaves have fallen when she felt it was almost indecent to intrude on the woods…for their glory terrestrial had departed and their glory celestial of spirit and purity and whiteness had not yet come upon them.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Windy Poplars
Collabor88 is here and just in time, bringing with it lots of warm and cozy clothing to layer for warmth and color and just because they are beautiful. One of my favorites is Erratic’s sweater with an integrated lace skirt or long tunic and matching leggings. HUDs change the colors of the leggings and the lace. There are so many color options your head will spin. I am wearing two of the sweater colors for today’s post.
My long two-pointed ladder’s sticking through a tree Toward heaven still, And there’s a barrel that I didn’t fill Beside it, and there may be two or three Apples I didn’t pick upon some bough. But I am done with apple-picking now….Robert Frost
I fell in love with this coat from E-Clipse. I had gone to the main store to look for something else and this caught and kept my attention. It comes in several colors and the scarf is integrated into the jacket. The pants are an older pair from Baiastice that are worth keeping in your closet for mixing and matching. Continue reading →
Ritu Kumar, who is one of India’s most successful fashion designers, said “When women wear denim it (the derriere) must look elegant. It’s the second thing every woman looks at in the mirror, but it’s the first thing she cares about. She does that half twirl, her back arched and her head craned around. If the jeans are right, the experience is transforming, like putting on a magic cloak.” And that’s the truth!
Since it’s “all about that bass”, Blueberry should be your go-to store for jeans, yoga pants, bootie shorts, body-con skirts and dresses and everything about that bass.
If you’ve ever wondered why it’s “all about that bass” just look at the shape of that guitar. It’s bringing booty back and so is Blueberry. Not that booty ever left.
In was chilly, so I added a high-fashion leather jacket from Azuchi for Uber. It comes in three colors, though I settled on black after trying each color on twenty times. Fall fashion is all about layering so I wore a Full knit bodysuit from Sn@tch, using Slink appliers. There is a turtleneck collar attachment to make it look its best. Continue reading →
There’s a new game in town. Well, a new place to game. I headed over to Vivara, a new gaming sim. I got dolled up with a couple pieces from The Instruments event, mixing a dress from DE.Designs with a feather bolero from SAS: Sascha’s Designs. There’s a lovely performance hall there and I thought since we can do anything in SL®, I might pretend I can sing. It’s purely pretend. Continue reading →
“Beauty: it curves, curves are beauty. Shapely goddesses, Venus, Juno: curves the world admires.”…James Joyce
I am back at Furillen, the bleak and desolate sim replicating a limestone quarry and luxury hotel off Sweden’s coast. It’s bleak and spare and there is an austere beauty that makes it compelling. There is nothing austere, however, about me today.
Siddean Munro has released her newest mesh body, the Slink Physique Hourglass, a body for the curvilinear, the well-endowed Mae Wests and the wasp-waisted Dollys and Scarletts. Standard mesh will not fit because there is nothing standard about Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth or any of the other bombshells whose curves defined female beauty far centuries.
Women who opt for the Hourglass figure will have to wear appliers or specially made clothing, though certainly many clothing designers will rush to serve this market. Blueberry, whose dress I am wearing in these pictures, is among the first and even gifted all purchasers of the Hourglass Physique with a free bikini in the mesh body’s packaging from Slink.

The newest dress from Thalia Heckroth™ is all about the back. It is a simple sheath that is quite plain in the front and then, once your back is turned, reveals a lot of skin and a lot of design.
That does not mean it is severe. The front has a deep scoop neck and is open under the arms, so it is revealing, but with restraint. Continue reading →
Francis Bacon,the great scientist-philosopher wrote, “In order for the light to shine brightly, the darkness must be present.” The truth of this is demonstrated every time I work with projectors. They are brightest when it is darkest. I thought of this quote, though, in relation to this avant garde outfit from Liziaah. It explores form and texture and through its form, the interplay of dark and light. Released in deep, dark shades of aubergine, royal blue and black, the colors provide the darkness.
Explorations of form, curving shapes and an open back reveal the light of exposed skin made brighter by their relation to the dark, rich fabrics. Continue reading →
