Evening Pondering

Pop Machine

Sometimes we all just need to find a place to relax and take a moment to ponder. Today is one of those days for me. So putting on a casual look, and just hanging out by the Pop Machine is just what I needed. My look today comes from the I.M. Collection. I’m wearing the “Brenna Jeans” in classic blue along with the “Brenna Top” in Teal. The jeans have a gold and silver hardware version and come with Maitreya, Slink and HG versions. It pairs perfectly with the Brenna top available in five colors: black, gold, pink, teal and purple. A long sleeve leather material with lace up back that is cropped makes this perfect for the ensemble. Find them both at the I.M. Collection mainstore now.

My Nails are available at The Chapter Four though March 21st at half price! They even come with a rigged pearl option (not shown). This time, the pearls have been rigged for the Maitreya, Vista Bento and Slink (Casual, Elegant, Elegant 1 & Relaxed) hands. The nail appliers are for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and OMEGA and the nails HUDs include Vista Bento and Tuty’s (NEW!) appliers! Hurry over to the Chapter 4 and pick up yours at this fantastic Price. You can wear all one design, or mix them together as I have done here.

Under the Silver Moonlight

Under the Silver Moonlight

What is it about a pale silver moonlight that speaks to romance? I recently received this beautiful gown from AZUL and fell in love with it immediately, especially this fantastic silver/lavender color that is so unique and beautiful. This is the “Zaria” dress in iolite from Azul just released this past weekend. The beautiful, floral embossed, high neckline is combined with a satin knee length skirt, full sleeves and flowing flexi skirt additions. It comes with the stunning floral necklace you see here. Just beautiful. It is in 16 different color combinations and available now at the AZUL mainstore and on the marketplace.

My nails are from Alme. These are the Colorblock 2 nails available through today at Tres Chic, and then will be at the Alme. mainstore. They have a nude top, solid color thin line and then a black tip. One hud has five different color choices for the thin line, and allows you to use your nails with: slink, maitreya, belleza, Omega and bento nails.

Shiny, Shabby and New

The birdbath

A brand new round of Shiny Shabby has opened and this month I found a great ensemble assembled from items available at the event. First, I’m so thrilled that Lybra is once again creating amazing gowns. This one is spectacular. For Maitreya, the Adele Gown comes with a hud that allows you to change the color of the gown, the belt and also the metal trim. The full gown has two options, solid color, or the patterned you see here, both included. The back of the gown has a generous scoop as well. I love it! It comes in a variety of single color, color pack and fatpack options. I bought the pastels and love how you can mix and match the belt and gowns to create your own special look.

Also at the event this month, Zibska has eyeshadows that coordinate perfectly. For Lelutka and OMEGA, the Tonia eyeshadows are just the right colors. I’m wearing the OMEGA version here on my CATWA head. My hair is also at the event – from DeLa, this is the Skylar hair in blondes. Rich, natural look that went perfectly with the gown.

Tonia Shadows

Finally, from the Tres chic event for February, my nails are from Alme. The Colorblocking duo was exactly the right color combination to go with my gown. One hud does it all for slink, maitreya, omega, belleza and bento hands. It has 5 color duos in the hud, and you can wear them on fingers, toes, both or even a mix of all the colors for a unique look.

Winter Reds

Winter Reds

It’s been so cold here these last few days that I’m ready for spring and summer. So I decided to find a nice warm place in SL and wear some of my favorite colors to warm up. Wishful thinking and hoping it will translate to SL.

My ensemble is new this month at SWANK from Emerald Couture. This is the “Suzie” outfit. It comes with appliers for the bodysuit for all the popular mesh bodies. To that you have mesh jeans and tall, spike heel boots. Over it all is the long, open front cardigan with slits on the sides. Perfect to chase away the hopefully last remnants of winter and wishing for spring and summer to arrive. It’s available in several colors including Teal, Red, Green, Blue and others – find them all at SWANK when the new round opens this week.

Next up I have my nails available starting today at The Chapter Four Event from alme. These nails are in the 1/2 price room for just $95L this month. The “Talissah – Thai” Nails. You can wear all of one of the designs I’m showing here, or the mix up version I have here. The nails are for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza and OMEGA. Get them at this low price while you can! They will go up after the event to regular price.

Thai Nails from alme.

Finally I’m featuring the newest hair release at the enVOGUE mainstore – Giovanna in light blondes. This long, sleek design features part of the hair pulled back into a casual roll and fold. The left side falls over the left shoulder and the right side is back behind. Nice, long, casual that will pair perfectly with any styling. Lots of color packs available at the mainstore, I’m wearing one from the light blondes pack.

Moonlight Skate

Moonlight Skater

She was a figure skater for years, so when she had the chance to skate in the moonlight with no one to see, she simply had to put those skates on just one more time…..

This amazing dress just spoke to me when I saw it for the P.O.E. 9 Hunt going on through the end of the month. This is the “Frost Dress” from PurpleMoon Creations. Fantastic mesh dress held in place with an ornate medallion and golden cords that go up around the neck. Handkerchief style asymmetric flexi skirt is perfect to catch the breeze as you skate along. Light blue color with just a hint of glitter. Fitmesh and standard mesh included. Best of all it is free as part of the POE 9 hunt. Don’t miss it.

Also included in my ensemble is the perfect nail polish to match the gown – light blue with a hint of white glitter. It’s in the Winter Love LIght polish hud from alme. along with three other colors. You can wear one, or a mixture of them all depending on your mood and outfit. The hud includes options for maitreya as I am wearing, or slink, belleza and Omega. It’s at the Chapter Four Event through the 21st in two for 1 room.
