Dialing Home

There is joy in wandering…. and joy in returning.  The cosmos is my home, the dance of the stars my heartbeat. 

Neil said “We are made of the dust of stars, and the oceans flow in my veins”.

Come with me…. let’s set a course.  Second star to the left, and straight on until dawn.

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

whispers on the night air

Caverna Obscura recently celebrated their 10th anniversary in-world, and to celebrate, Elvina Ewing created a Anais, a dream in golden silk.  This was a one-day only gift, so I fear that I can’t send you to Caverna looking for it — but I can send you to Caverna to look at all the wonderful things that Elvina is creating.  She’s long been a source for amazing outfits, and her more recent forays into fitmesh do not disappoint!

Anais comes in several variations, sheer and opaque depending on how brazen you would like to be… or how revealing.  Either way, Elvina lets you be your sultriest.

Get yourself to Caverna Obscura  and check out all the lovely pretties for your fae, your arabian nights, or whatever your fantasy might be.

Bird of Paradise

Aloha, my dear friends!  I can’t decide whether Eclectic StarsBird of Paradise print for the Buffy dress is boho or roaring 20s, so perhaps it is a little of each?  I’ll definitely be wearing it both ways!

Buffy is available in all your favourite fitmesh bodies: all three Belleza, both SLink, and Maitreya.

I couldn’t help but shoot it in one of my favourite sims for that era, Chicago 1920’s.  There’s an awful lot to explore, but it is a RP sim, so please come in era-appropriate attire!

Friday meoooooww!

Happy Friday!  Wherever you are, I hope you’re looking forward to a bright shiny weekend!  

Katy features fitmesh shorts for Belleza Venus, Maitreya Lara and SLink Physique bodies, as well as the standard rigged mesh sizes.  The cute kittykat top is an Omega applier (also comes with standard SL layer).  The lovely butterflies tattoo from ERSCH allows you to place that tat on either leg — or both!

The sky is blue, the breeze is soft, the smell of flowers is in the air.  I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Aloha!  A hui hou!

Irises

I know, I’m always going on about how nice flexi dresses are for dancing.  So let’s put my money where my mouth is: Eden’s Summerqueen dance was this past weekend, and Paris METRO Couture had exactly what I was looking for with Van Gogh Irises.

I added a bit of jewelery from Spyralle: Summer Leaf earrings, and a new treat from the June 2017 SWANK event: Grow a New Heart necklace in emerald.  Simple, clean, and the perfect complement to Irises.

Now, as you might expect, a flexi gown is a bit complex.  This full outfit comes in at about 200k complexity, and a good bit of that is in the flexiprim skirt.  That’s about as high as I like to go for clothing in SL, but nothing compares with flexi for long gowns to dance in!

Happy Summer, everyone!  A hui hou!  Mahalo!

A touch of darke

I’ve been blogging about Petite Mort for a while now, but I don’t know how many of you know about Melora’s more recent venture, Oubliette!  Oubliette has a different flavour than Petite Mort, a bit of goth, a bit of darkness — or as one of my favourite book series says, “darkeness”.  That darkeness fires Lucretia, an exclusive art-deco inspired gown for the Midsummer Enchantment event!

Lucretia comes in fitmesh sizes for Maitreya, TMP, both SLink and all three Belleza bodies, and there’s a lovely palette of six colours for you to choose from.

I really love the beautiful way that Melora has worked the angular lines of the dress into the more flowery curves at the top and at the hem.   That’s always seemed the beautiful paradox of art deco to me, drawing from art nouveau, merging the linear and the curved.

Stop by Midsummer Enchantment, visit Oubliette, and revel in the darke.

Andie’s Candies

I always figure that the right bit of lace…. will make you feel more exposed than if you were bare.

Stop by Carrie’s Lingerie to see what nakeder-than-naked things she has for you… and surprise that special someone tonight.

Embroidered Essmie

Petite Mort has a lovely dress for this round of Tres Chic: the very simple clean Essmie.   Eight beautiful earthy shades set off the most amazing embroidery I’ve seen in Second Life.  My tūtū used to do embroidery like this, she always loved this style.  She tried to teach me a little… but I was never so good as she was.

Essmie comes in fitmesh for Lara, TMP, both SLink bodies and all three Belleza bodies.  So, as a side note, I end up writing that list of bodies down often enough now that I see that list, the numbers — 1 1 2 3 — and start thinking mathy sequence thoughts.  Is that nuts?  Probably, but wow I am so happy to see so much fitmesh!

Stop by Tres Chic and see all the wonderful goodies!   You deserve a little shopping joy today!  And mahalo, tūtū, I always think of you.  🙂

A perfect day for the beach, grab your new ‘kini from Alaska Metro and a beautiful little cover-up, and let’s go!

The Veronica bikini comes in four “natural” colours: brown, tan, black and white.  The cover-up has a host of choices, three different HUDs are available, each with four lovely textures.  I really like HUD #3, the cover-up is just a little bit transparent.

I’d better get some more sunscreen, my complexion makes the Sun a dire companion!  Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Second Chances

Sometimes things slip by, a little bit lost in the shuffle.  Florette is a lovely dress that Spyralle featured at the Walk in the Garden event supporting Women for Women International.   While the Walk in the Garden event is over, you’ve got a second chance!  You can still find Florette at The Avenue until June 24th!

Florette features a beautiful little dress plus matching capri-length yoga pants.  So it’s perfect for both summer and for cooler fall days!

The dress comes in the standard five rigged-mesh sizes plus fitmesh for both SLink, all three Belleza, TMP, and Maitreya mesh bodies.  The yoga pants come in both standard layers plus Omega appliers!

It just goes to show, it pays to pay attention to your favourite creators and their notices!   But head over to The Avenue and you can chooose from six beautiful colours!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!
