Camilla in the cold

effin cold n bright Every year I swear that I am not going to freeze my av’s bits off by posing her in a winter wonderland. Then something tempts me into it. This year it’s Nevery Lorakeet’s Camilla for LpD, a classic tweed coat with a full skirt. It’s available in Smoke, Green, Red (shown here) and Prune versions. Each pack contains an indoor dress as well as the coat. Check out today’s last pic for a peek at the Prune dress.
cinnamon girl sanna The Love Spark applier from Umazuma Metaluna for The Skinnery is the loveliest I’ve seen for the LeLutka head. Adding the new Coral hairdo from Wasabi Pills brought out the roaring twenties feel of the cute bow-shaped lips. Continue reading

See the signs

nilfpixlrLast week the grid tossed up a veritable salad of signs and symbols, and I couldn’t resist compiling them into one teasingly interpretable ensemble. I particularly like the sandals from Wicca’s Wardrobe, which are her gift for the FemDom Hunt. They have red lipsticks for heels and a bold red lip print on each upper. Also of note, the latest VIP group gift from Spellbound features a nun’s headpiece lettered NILF. I suggest we can either pretend that we are so pure of heart that we can’t imagine what NILF stands for OR we can pretend that on Halloween there’s nothing scandalous about a sexy nun. Same thing as a sexy devil or a sexy pod person.
i saw the sign My av is wearing Nevery Lorakeet’s latest offering for LpD, the perfectly demure Optical Witch dress. The patterned dress is available only in black/white and only at The Instruments. My av is also wearing someone else’s noggin, Genesis Lab’s unsettling “albino” head Makena, which is a gift at Tres Chic. I’m feeling love for Genesis Lab because appliers for Maitreya’s Lara body and Slink hands and feet are free. I’m also feeling ire because the tattoos dispensed in the Wayward Halloween gacha don’t work with the heads I own.

missing you “Fnuh” means I hate it when my rope top is not available. “Fnuh” doesn’t mean I hate it when my avatar looks lovely. I can always count on LpD creator Nevery Lorakeet to tempt my digital doll out of the darkness and into something sweet and elegant. The Violette dress combines a relaxed avant-garde cut with a soft classic fabric. Each version of the dress features a lovely colour combination: dark blue with yellow, white with pink, green and pastel pink, pink and light blue, light yellow with lilac, and the burnt orange with light blue version worn here. I love creative colour pairing so it was very difficult to choose just one dress to show you. In a tribute to the beautiful pale-grey dye jobs I am seeing IRL, my model also wears MissAllSunday Lemon’s greatest Hair Fair hit—the Pepper style with its multi-colour band, which you can see below the cut. (You will also have the opportunity to see what my av gets up to when a hobby horse is her only companion. And you will be able to read  about my latest adventures in kink and therapy.)

So wholesome

poodle walk I rarely go all out for newness and can’t recall the last time Portia looked this sweet. Her cute combined dress and coat is Nevery Lorakeet’s latest offering from Les Petits Details. It’s called Mandarino and it’s also available in a brown abstract and a grey tweed version.

close for Jang Sopha Portal has outdone herself with Jang, a gorgeous Asian face that you will find at the Xiasumi School Festival. Some participants are donating proceeds to the children-centered Japan Tsunami Earthquake Relief fund. The Xiasumi campus is huge. Go to the actual school building and then do yourself a favor by using area search. Portia’s hair is new from Little Bones at Collabor88. You can change the shade of the left half of the hairdo by choosing one of the streaks options on the HUD. I have been avoiding these hat hairdos because they give me Culture Club flashbacks, but I was powerless to resist the center part and controlled curls of Spell Circle.

poppedAlana is a new party dress from Nevery Lorakeet for LpD. If a fabric this bold threatens to raise eyebrows at the next garden party, you can always buy Alana in white or pink floral versions. Please save the black version for a slow nighttime ride in the extra-long limousine of a powerful wo/man.
oakley I love the distinctive look of Glam Affair’s Oakley skin with its enhanced eyelid. There are a few more days to play this gacha at Summerfest.

Today Portia looks like one of the cool girls. Her long denim skirt is one of the new Gelsomino separates from Nevery Lorakeet for LpD. The skirt is available in black and in three shades of light denim that take me all the way back to my 1970s Barbie doll’s wardrobe. There is also a far fancier ruffled, belly-baring summer blouse with a choker-style collar. The Gelsomino blouse comes in all-white, light flowers, gold flowers, pink and black-and-white striped fabrics. (Honestly, I couldn’t choose.)

bubblicious I was vexed that my cute/slutty new shoes from Blah didn’t show up in my first photo, so I rushed Portia out of the rain and into a bubble (with some funny tune-loving poses). The Frenchie hair by Illmatic is justly popular. The hair-base alone is a work of art. But at 300L for one colour (with front or back braid variations) it is one of the most expensive hairstyles I have ever bought. Illmatic is holding a 100L sale on some older styles, so you could balance out the cost by buying more (rather than less) hair.

Balloon pants and faux pas

lesgirlsThere are days when I just don’t have the time or inclination to ensure my av’s outfit,  jewellery, skin and hair are perfectly compatible. There are also days when I feel “pose fatigue.” Chairs in particular disappoint my expectations. Sitting seems to ruin every last line of a beautiful avatar. So, there came a day last weekend when I was in the middle of styling a look and happened upon a great chair with mannish sits fit for balloon pants. Portia wasn’t wearing bracelets and her feet didn’t match her skin. But I wanted a picture, so I took one and I made it public. I’ve always been a mannish sitter myself. I remember vividly being scolded by my teenage friends for inviting unwanted attention by sitting immodestly in my own balloon pants. So this one’s for all of you who sometimes half-ass it or refuse to cross your legs.
