“I’d be smiling and chatting away, and my mind would be floating around somewhere else, like a balloon with a broken string.” ― Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
I wanted to be sure to choose the perfect lingerie for this new sheer tunic Zaara released at Collabor88. I had this great set from Luxuria for Fifty Linden Friday. It’s still available, just not 50 lindens. I love the colors and thought it a perfect set for my new tunic. It applies to both Maitreya and Slink bodies, so it’s very flexible.
Black Bantam, a new to me label, released this lovely Autumn Dreams Balloon Chair, a fantasy piece that I took for a ride on the Linden Ocean. Stacey Oller is the designer for Black Bantam and may be more familiar to folks under her fashion label Pink Acid. The chair contains several poses and animations for men and women (and kids) and comes in blue as well. Continue reading →
I’m having snacks and hot drinks because The ARCADE opens up in 48 hours and I am going to need all of my strength. This round is another amazing feat of must have items, and I’m super impressed with all of the MENS items this round. I need a man in my house to decorate for. Except that I don’t really, I don’t want to give up my prims to ANYONE. They are my precious. Continue reading →
I tossed and turned, unable to sort out why ideas of a lovely thermos, a berry cake, a baby doll, an eggnog tray and a snowman seemed to be swirling around my mind. What could they mean? Continue reading →
I’m pretty excited as we’re heading right into the holiday season full steam ahead. In the US we have Thanksgiving tomorrow which is in fact THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS no matter what the scrooges say. It’s that most wonderful time of the year of good cheer and family and friends and WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUND.
New pajamas from Sn@tch and a cute bed loaded with poses for you or friends are just some of the fun items available at MY ATTIC this round. The bed is called the SLEEPOVER bed and so if you’ve got a couple of girlfriends over, it’s perfect for some fun pictures. I also love that it’s got several textures available – you can mix up your decor options. Continue reading →
The Instruments monthly showcase is featuring designs inspired by Star Wars this month. Among the designs, you will find this fabulous gown inspired by Padme’s outfit in Episode Three. Padme’s lament, “So this is how liberty dies… with thunderous applause.” seems particularly apt at this time when crowds of people applaud the creation of databases to track people because of their ethnicity and armed vigilance committees march outside mosques and call themselves patriots. I guess those people have not studied history (or watched Star Wars), a tabula rasa of ignorance on which the future of tyranny is being written. Of course, the Force is with us all to resist tyranny by resisting fear. We know what happens when fear inspires hate. It has happened before and if we fail to learn from that, we have only ourselves to blame.
I stopped at Winter Moon for the photos, since the dress is black and white, I thought black and white pictures would be great. By the way, I think the scarf that is part of the Padme dress may work well with other outfits. The Padme outfit includes the dress, scarf and sleeves that I am wearing as well as a crown, earrings and rings that I am not.
