I woke up this morning and decided I desperately needed to see new things in my SL so I ran off to LEA to expand my mind and appreciation of beauty. The place I ended up was LEA 16 and you ride a little space ship (or a fancy space ship as you like) through multiple builds which are a play of light, objects and motion. It was truly a perfect was kick start my day.
I am showing off lots of new goodies this morning also so let’s walk through those. My clothes are from that awesome new shop POPPY and I know I’ve mentioned it before. They are OPEN now as of today. You can get to POPPY riding this wild slurl. They are lovely pieces that are out thus far and you’re going to want to check it out. Continue reading →
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.
Distance lends discretion, so I am beginning my post with a full body shot instead of the usual three-quarter photo I usually use. My blouse is a bit sheer and revealing and so closer, more detailed photos are below the cut on behalf of those who might be taking a peek while at work. I am repurposing a lovely lingerie bodysuit from Luxuria because as Reiss Field once said, “Everything is fair in love, war, and fashion.” Continue reading →
I’m getting ready for Christmas in my new place, and I’m still dithering with how to decorate. It’s my favorite holiday, ok maybe it’s a tie with Halloween. But At this moment I’m working with the Zerkalo Christmas set from THE ARCADE and it’s a lovely addition to my new home. Continue reading →
W.H. Auden wrote in his collection of prose essays, The Dyer’s Hand, ““Every man carries within him through life a mirror, as unique and impossible to get rid of as his shadow.” Then he went on to suggest a good parlor game would be to look at different people and imagine the kinds of mirrors they might be carrying. One might be carrying a gilt baroque hand mirror, another a small compact mirror in a leather case, each of them, carrying mirrors that by design and dimension reveal their character.
I don’t know want my unique mirror would look like. I have one mirror that I purchased that goes over my dresser. It’s huge and heavy and requires two people to shift, framed in a beautiful dark cherry but free of ornamentation or embellishments. That is the kind of mirror I chose to buy, but does it reveal anything about me other than I dislike dusting? I don’t know. Continue reading →
My typist is going away for a few days so I told her that I would take a vacation too. I wanted to go somewhere unusual, and lucky for me Trompe Loeil has this new Outcrop Hut for a perfectly outdoorsy but restful few days away. Continue reading →

Some of the lovely things presented at Penumbra fashion week this time were bridal gowns. I’m not a big fan usually, so I was intrigued though to see something very understated and elegant from Ever An’ Angel for Penumbra and had to put it on. When I was newer in SL, my friends and I would often put on wedding dresses and run around the grid being mad and silly. This gown seemed to deserve an elegant backdrop. I think I found the perfect place for the SL wedding I won’t have.
It doesn’t have a lot of seating for guests but that’s ok. I might actually bring Gidge back over here for tea and cakes when she’s done working – it’s rather lovely in it’s amazing white wash of light.
There is even a fairytale-like carriage to bring me to the ceremony. Yes, this is a perfect spot.
I decided to go out exploring the winter fun to be had in SL today, so I had to take a bit to get properly geared up. Cute but warm is the goal – it’s hard to be cute sometimes, especially in RL, when you’re layered upon layers upon layers. I decided to have some fun with my ability to layer on my SLINK PHYSIQUE starting with a sweater from Stellar on the body, then adding mesh over it for a cute RL layered look. I think it works nicely. Continue reading →
After a long day of unpacking and sweating like a peasant I decided to treat myself to a nice cup and a sweet treat. I saw a new spot featured on PLURK the other day and had to go check it out. I wasn’t disappointed. Continue reading →
