Invited

…and then, after that busy day, I got an invitation to a get-together.  What to wear???  Fortunately, Azul recently released a group gift, and I’d just stocked up on Tya Fallingbridge’s beautiful Lady T shoes.  Getting ready for a party was never so easy!

Runaway

Runaway

Some days are like that:  all you do is run around.  Today I was hopping from sim to sim, collecting SURLs as I get this blog ready for public viewing.  If it was *real* running, no way would I be able to wear these boots!  But pain-free stilettos are one of the many joys of SL.

The light in your emerald eyes (52 weeks of color challenge — emerald)

Drawn by the light

My journey today took me far into the past. I was a Lady in a castle waiting for my Lord to return from his long travels to faraway lands. I stand by the window, and peer out at the ocean, thinking perhaps I can see his ship in the distance. When he arrives at last, I will say, ‘Milord, I never gave up hope; I knew that once again I would be graced by the light in your emerald eyes.’

I couldn’t resist… (blogging them twice): Gos boots

Ruffle top & boots

God knows i like dressing up as much as the next girl. And, dressing down too. I set out to do some errands the other day and threw on this fabulous LeeZu top (I bought it the day it came out), to complement my LG jeans and fabulous Gos boots. (I love you, Gos — in a platonic, fangirl way, of course!)

Oh — before I get to the credits, let me give you a close up!

Aren’t they GORGEOUS??? I don’t even want to take them off to go to bed…

Wandering in winter wheat

Wandering in Winter Wheat - Ocean Wade

Was doing a little exploring yesterday and found myself wandering around Tya Fallingbridge’s wonderful T Town. Tya’s probably best known for the fabulous clothes and shoes and other things that she designs, but her sim is truly a marvel. Spend some time there with someone you love — or just by yourself, as I did — to explore and delight in all the beauty.

The Sunday News (Releases from Truth & Gos)

The Sunday News

Okay, okay — so, I got the notices and picked up the items on Saturday, but it does take a girl a little time to get all dolled up and take a picture (and, um, maybe stop off at a few clubs along the way), so to me they are the Sunday ‘news’! First Tegan 2, this fabulous Truth hairstyle — one of three new releases today. Not quite sure I’m ‘hipster’ enough to carry off the porkpie hat, but really wanted to show it off. (Most days I’ll probably wear the Tegan — same style sans hat.) And then these amazing boots from Gos, with so many textures (leather *and* suede!) and colors and things that can be modified. You even get 3 different heel choices: stiletto, chunky, and wedge. Not to mention a terrific fitting system that makes adjustments an absolute snap. Whew! Now that I’ve told you all that, I think I’m gonna spend the rest of my Sunday lazing on the couch and reading the Times. So, could someone please bring me a coffee? Thanks!

Salt Marsh, Low Tide, 5 p.m. (52 Weeks of Color — Taupe)

Salt Marsh, Low Tide

A late afternoon in coastal New England.
A solitary walk in the lowlands, on the leeward side.
The cold air stings your face, but the winds smell of salt, and life, and mystery.
Seagulls call out, and if you listen hard enough, you might believe you can hear echoing strains of Celtic music, and the faint cries of ancient sailors, forever lost at sea.

Friday afternoon, quiet and blue…

Blue Afternoon -- LOTD 1.20.11

Some Friday afternoons are riots of excitement — racing through work to get home, put on that glamorous outfit, and dash out to meet the night. Others are like this one: peaceful, quiet, and tinged with just the slightest amount of melancholy. Fortunately, in SL we can dress our moods, so this is me, today, in a sweet, blue mood.

Leather Pants!

Leather Pants 2

Every time I go to The Dressing Room — which is at least every time they debut a new collection — I make sure to bring a wallet full of Lindens ’cause there’s always at least a few things that I totally love. One of yesterday’s scores was this fabulous pair of leather pants from LG Concept: a sexy-tough look that I could live in for days (and nights).

Sheerly Sexy

Sheerly Sexy

Many women in SL enjoy being able to show off large amounts of flesh. While I applaud their courage, I still feel a little bit shy about overexposure. Nevertheless, there are times whey I want to look as sexy as the next avatar, though never like I’m trying too hard. This new Hucci bodysuit — a LeLook exclusive — helps me do exactly that; it oozes sex appeal while still covering all the naughty bits. Those kissable Laq lips and just-out-of-bed Truth hair make the look both effortless, and irresistible.
