Zaara! Zaara Kohime has released statement necklaces that coordinate with her previous releases of earrings and bracelets and they were so worth the wait. When I put on this dress (Josh) from Dutch Touch with its elegant silvery blue-gray, I immediately thought of the new shell necklace from Zaara and sure enough, they are perfect complements to each other. With the dress, you have the option of sheer lace or lace over fabric on the torso. It also comes with a white tee you can wear under it. In September’s Vogue they did a spread on Charlize Theron who wore luscious ballgowns and cocktail dresses, all with a white shirt underneath – for a look that was both high concept and intriguing. This shirt with the tee reminded me of that.
Whilst wandering around some of the new shopping sims I found BeetleBones – a fun little clothing store where I picked up this love dark blue leopard print dress with the best name ever for a leopard print anything. It’s called “I Ate Tarzan!” How perfect is that. Such wit and humor must be rewarded so I picked up the adorable little dress – a strapless shirtwaist that I paired with another of those lovely shrugs from BOOM – the Wrong Size Cardigan.
I am not going to jump too quickly into fall and the coming seven months of non-ending clouds, mist and rain. I am going to hang onto summer by the fingernails and drag every bit of sunny weather out of it that I can. So…even in celebration of the glorious sun that is shining today…shining in Oregon in September…I am wearing this lovely bright floral dress from Bijou and pretending it’s June and there’s still months of dry weather ahead.
The names of classical songs crack me up. With few exceptions, the names are not designed for remembering. Luckily for me, I have some friends who are classical musicians and so have enjoyed more than one conversation where people toss about this “concerto in D Major” and that “concerto in E Major” and seem to know exactly what they are talking about. Now if this outfit were a musical composition, I might call it Variations on a Theme in Purple in A Minor – A as in Aphrodite Creations whose marvelous Perdu dress is the base of this outfit.
But who would want to when Mother Nature is as luscious as this gown from Staged for the BlackSwan Swansong – the month long requiem for the Rezzable sim. With a brilliant fuschia bikini and pants and floral bodice covered with sheer wisps of organza and trailing fallen leaves – the falling leaves and elegiac reminder of the fallen sim.
When you think of Chanel, do you think of Rock & Roll, Rock Chic, Rocker Chicks? Nah, me either, but for the recent tribute to Chanel, STAGED presented this Chanel Cross pantsuit that rocks the house. Add the Shanti shoes from Maitreya and I’m a believer.
