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)

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.

songbird

With graduation marking the end of the school year, summer is officially here as far as I’m concerned! Song Bird is a wonderful little fitmesh shift from Precious Designs with a six-colour HUD.

Beautiful weather, waking to the dawn chorus, picnics, hikes, a little more relaxation time (hopefully), warm rains and thunderstorms — I love summer!

Boho eclectica

Okay, something I don’t do enough of — assemble outfits from components!  This was a lot of fun, though, and features a few new goodies and a few old ones that I found in my inventory.

The two Alaska Metro items come from the Spoonful of Sugar 2017 Spring Festival going on right now!  The Foil Flash tattoo gacha comes in ten different placements over the torso, arms and legs.  The rare features all ten on one layer for your convenience.  I think I found a new fave tattoo!

A different shade for the Petite Mort scarf — melon — and taupe leggings.  Petite Mort‘s Gypsy beaded scarf is gorgeous, and comes in several lovely colours.  It’s a perfect accent piece!

All I want to do is savour the taste of that kiss goodnight.

So… the question is, what will you put together today?

Tastes of Spring

With the change in the seasons, Tres Chic starts today, and Petite Mort has two lovely exclusives just for the occasion!

Lara is a lovely mesh dress in fitmesh for Maitreya Lara, SLink Physique and Hourglass and the standard SL avi.  It comes in six lovely colours, two of which I’ll show you today.

Melora Frost at Petite Mort really does such a lovely job with textures.  Her tastes fit perfectly with my wardrobe!

If you haven’t visited Petite Mort before, you simply must.  Melora has a wonderful eye for the bohemian style.  Stop by Tres Chic and check out the exclusives — and the rest of the market — there are so many wonderful things to see!  Don’t dawdle, Tres Chic is only around for a limited time!

Now, Petite Mort currently has nine past group gifts back up on the wall, Festival included.  I don’t know how long they’ll be up, but stop by and take a look, and peruse the rest of the bohemian fashion offered in the store!  In the meantime, I’ll show you another one or two of those gifts in the next week or so.

Evening Breeze

As the sun lowers, the cool breezes sweep in down from the mauna, we’ll trade our kinis and pareos for a mu’umu’u or a nice dress…. and Spyralle has a perfect little treat in Five O’Clock.

FiveOclock_c002

Five O’Clock is mesh in the five standard sizes, and has a lovely little flexi piece that fastens at the left hip with a little rosette.  It gives nice little flow to the gown as you walk or dance!

FiveOclock_c010

I complemented Five O’Clock with a lovely necklace and earring set from *N@N@* that I don’t get enough opportunity to wear, but the turquoise and gold works well with the peacock colours.

FiveOclock_c005

Five O’Clock is an older dress, but it fits well and looks great.  Kerryth currently has it in the outlet room at Spyralle, so you can pick up this lovely dress at a substantial discount!
