Warm sands

Summer may be drawing to a close, but the water is warm and you will have to drag me from the beach.  Here’s a lovely little treasure from MOoH! that I picked up at this summer’s Aloha Fair.   Their Rainbow Bikini has been updated to include not only the standard five rigged mesh sizes, but fitmesh for pretty much any mesh body you might like.  It’s fun and flirty and suits this girl just fine!

  • MOoH! — Rainbow bikini
  • EarthStonesTumbled Stones (spectrum) necklace, earrings, and bracelet
  • [evolove]October #2 pose gift

Happy aloha Friday!  I hope that you are enjoying beautiful weather and warm sands!

Sunshine

I’ve been wanting to share this little outfit with you for ages now, and I’ve finally got the perfect excuse.  My lovely Blue gave me a gift certificate to Blueberry ages ago for my birthday and these were two little pieces that I fell in love with.  Britan is a beautiful little denim mini, and Koko is the fun half-cropped top!  Both items are sold single-colour, but come in rigged mesh and mesh-body-fitmesh sizes.  Britan has a little HUD that allows you to change the belt colour, rivet/metal texture, and panty colour — or just do away with the panties in the first place.  Koko comes in two variants for each colour — with and without the printed pattern.

I really am excited to share these foil freckles with you from Alaska Metro.  Alaska is rolling out a new free-join group — Alaskametro<3 loves, and the foil freckles are your gift for joining up.  They come both in Omega appliers and standard tattoo layers in six different lovely shades.  I’m in love!

Your look is out there just waiting for you to find it.  Thank you, Blue my love, for helping me find my way every day.  ♥♥♥

Heart of Soraya

Bee and Solace at Silvan Moon Designs have a wonderful exclusive for the Fantasy Gacha Carnival!    The three-piece Psalm of Soraya has four lovely commons colours, and full sets in coal and ice as rares.

I shared Spyralle‘s Grow a New Heart with you before, it looks just perfect in Soraya’s chest cut-out

Solas’ fine mesh skills show up in the lovely lace-up back.  And take a look at Bee’s butterflies hiding in the gown texture!

You’d best hurry: the Fantasy Gacha Carnival only lasts until September 7th, then it, too, disappears like a dream.

One piece sparkles

I like one piece swimsuits more than I like bikinis, and as we had a beach party at Eden yesterday, and I’d worn nearly every swimsuit I own to one event there or another, I went shopping.  I was looking for something in white with laced sides as that look is really in at the moment.  But after a while looking (and trying three demos) I couldn’t find anything I was happy with.  So I broadened my search and found this suit!

It’s fitmesh specific to Maitreya Lara only, and comes in six different soft colors.  And oh my, does it glitter when you move!

Scarily, there was no demo or comments on the marketplace page so I bought it with my fingers crossed, but I’m here to tell you that the fit is pretty near perfect, with just one alpha section needed.

Aeon said “OMG you’re going to have some funny tan lines!”  Pffft 🙂

Here’s a closeup of the ties at the back so you can see just how much trouble the designer went to.  It’s an awesomely eye-catching outfit if you have Lara, and I’ll certainly be wearing it to a few more beaches soon!

a field of lavender

Here’s a lovely little dress that I picked up from the Tres Chic event a few months back.   {les baies} is a fairly new creator, but has some very nicely textured products.  I’m looking forward to seeing what Summse Sands creates next!

{les baies} is currently in-between in-world shops, but has a marketplace presence, so take a little look and see.

A flair for the batik

I’m a sucker for beautiful batiks, and I found this lovely one from Applique Chic  as I was going through my inventory this week.  The Island Tropic dress is from the Beached Bunny Hunt 7, which is sadly now over.  Hopefully Applique Chic will return it to the shop!

Island Tropic is HUD-driven with six lovely textures, and comes in the standard five rigged mesh sizes, plus fitmesh for all three Belleza bodies, both SLink, both Tonic, Maitreya, TMP, Ocacin, and Ebody.  Wow!

Happy Aloha Friday, all my lovely friends!

The Courtesan

Night,
dark, soft, alluring,
spinner of dreams I want to be lost in,
is a kindhearted courtesan,
who never demanded anything
for all her loving, that to me
was like a swim in the pool
of “Ananda” I was searching for.

I climbed her door steps
with the silent footfalls of a cat,
all these years for solace,
when the fair lass ,
regaled by my songs evening after evening,
scoffed and taunted,
when I fell wounded
in duels of life, I was forced to fight
to keep my honor intact.

Once,
seeing me left in the lurch,
blood soaked and badly wounded
she led my tired legs
to her house of magic and secret treasure hunts,
blessed me with oblivion, till I woke up.
Her mansion became
arena of silent dances of wounded memories,
till sun appeared above misty mountains
cheering me up with new promises,
but my thoughts never left her.
I spent my darkest hours
in her house,
thrilled by dreams she induced,
in which under moonbeams
princesses gathered,
bubbling fine wine brimmed
in sparkling glasses,
I felt the most loved man
within her tender arms.
I would wait for the night, my sullied lover,
to arrive with her hands of breeze,
to tousle my hair and caress my face.
Night  took away my pains,
her lasciviousness is the only drink,
that makes me ask for more.
She is not only mine,
as a courtesan, she needs to entertain
whoever seeks her,
But when I am with her,
she is all mine.

(Night is a Kind Hearted Courtesan, by K. Balachandran)

Solas and Bee at Silvan Moon Designs have a beautiful new gown for you at The Secret Affair.  The Courtesan is a two-piece mesh gown (gown and overskirt) available in four different lovely colour combinations for SLink and Maitreya bodies.

The Secret Affair has some wonderful treasures.  Stop by and take a look around before this secret disappears!

on a midsummer’s night

“Though she be but little, she is fierce!”

This lovely little mesh outfit is offered as a group gift at Rowena’s Designs.  The Fairy Dress is a mesh outfit including wings, and has a five-colour HUD to fit your tastes.  The top, skirt, and wings are rigged as a single piece, and cannot be worn independently.

The wings are static and unscripted, but have a beautiful semi-transparent texture.  They, too, have colour-change options that subtly tint the multicolour iridescent texture.  The lovely Forest Edge mask from Spyralle has a HUD for six different leaf colours and four stem colours!

Stop by Rowena’s Designs and pick up The Fairy Dress, and take a look around at all the other pretties!

“Know but this and all is mended.
That you have but slumbered here,
While these visions did appear,
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding, but a dream.”

sweet and tangy

SWANK‘s July theme is “Tropical Heat”, and Albino Peacock offers Nanihi, a perfect wrap skirt and top for your trip to the beach!  It’s as sweet and tangy as a pineapple!

Nanihi is available in five different lovely textures, and is sized in the five standard rigged-mesh sizes, as well as five corresponding fitmesh sizes and fitmesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and SLink.  

Nanihi is a Tahitian name, generally translated as “total woman” or “complete woman”…. this outfit sure feels that way!  Stop by SWANK today, we’re running out of July.  But there are so many lovely things there that you’ll never run out of Summer!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!
