Caught in the setting sun

I’m in trouble — or my bank account is.  I’ve found a merchant doing what I’ve been waiting for for ages: combine the beauty of mesh and the motion of flexi in the same skirt!  Nur from ALB Dream Fashion features just this:  a mesh top and base skirt, and flexi skirt add-ons that swish and flow as you dance!  WOW!

I know there’s been some well written posts about the dearth of fitmesh for Belleza bodies lately, and while I don’t have Belleza, I certainly sympathise.  Nur comes with fitmesh for all three Belleza bodies, TMP, both SLink and Maitreya.  Well done!

I think I’m going to have to go back to ALB and spend some more money, there are some beautiful flexi skirts there!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

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)

The brocade on the front and the lace in the overskirt are just gorgeous.

Here comes trouble.

I should have known that when Andrea and I went looking for a place for a few drinks and some dancing, we could only end up in one place —

  • Addams — Kendall Loose shirt (#25)
  • AddamsOrnella High Rise Jeans (#23)
  • DeVicious — Glow Boots (black)  (sadly, DeVicious is no longer available either in-world or on Marketplace)
  • an lar [poses]Tara Mini Series – Three pose

Andrea just recently upgraded to a mesh body (Maitreya Lara) and a new skin (WoW Skins  2016 Irene Bronze CL), and I think she just looks fabulous.  Plus…  it’s a whole new world of shopping up for her!  Addams has a host of lovely mesh clothing items to fill your wardrobe, with lots of fitmesh to fit any mesh body.

Summer is a great time to turn over a new leaf, to get a new start.  Well, frankly, anytime is a good time to take a new start!  Now, how about that dance?

So much mahalo to Andrea for agreeing to pose for my camera!

Aloha!  A hui hou!

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!

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!

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!

Catty Polka

A little lace, stockings and gloves from Carrie’s Lingerie, a bit of moonlight… a little wine and the right company, and that makes for a lovely evening.

Catty Polka is a beautiful Omega applier/SL standard layer lingerie set in six lovely accent colours.  And as usual, each part is individually selectable.

My favourite ribbon from .wound and Tantalize earrings from Dressed by Lexi complete the look.

Now… as sexy as this is, won’t you help me out of it?

It’s always fun to see what new sexy designs Carrie’s has for us.  Stop by and take a look!

Mahalo — a hui hou!
