The Nightcap

Nightcap

I recently moved into a new residence in SL. I had lived on a beach front plot for years in SL and gave it up a couple of years ago, only to find that I really missed it. I love the peace, the serenity and the view of the water from a beach house in true waterfront fashion. So recently I found this amazing home in a sailing marina, and new it was time to get back to the water that I love so much. So now I get to sit on my balcony and watch the moonlight drinking my nightcap before bed. I had just been out dancing in my amazing new gown released for the Sense event. This is the “Olivia” gown from AZUL. I’m wearing the nude color, but there are several color choices available at the event including an event exclusive mint color that is stunning as well. I love this gown. A sheer over solid style design gives this gown softness, and femininity. It has a sequined collar from which sheer fabric connects to the bodice in a cross-over style patter giving this amazing visual interest and uniqueness. The sheath gown has flexi skirts at the hem and also a train behind that moves in the wind as you do. It has fitmesh versions for all the popular mesh bodies and even some not so common, and will even work with standard bodies as well. The Sense Event is open now.

My nails are available from Alme as part of the “Casual Winter” nails available at the Alme mainstore. These fantastic nails have three different designs all in these muted winter tones. The hud has options for Maitreya, slink, tuty’s, vista, belleza and omega. the three designs can be worn stand alone as I chose here, or can be mixed together for variety if you choose. Either way they are a great staple to have in your polish collection and are perfect with this gown.

Winter Beauty

Winter Beauty

This week has been a week of snow and ice across much of the United States, and even in places that never see that type of weather. But, if you take a moment to just stop and look, it’s easy to see the beauty in nature even though we don’t always find it convenient. I love the snow for short periods, but would not want it to be my everyday world. So when it comes for a visit, I want to make the most of the beauty and splendor that is winter. Today I have for you a gorgeous mesh gown from Tiffany Designs available at their mainstore in the holiday/winter room right off the main foyer of the store. This is the “Ice Queen Mesh Gown” and it includes the beautiful ice blue gown with silver gem accents, the flexi skirting around the bottom, the flowing white, wispy cape and the Necklace/earrings. So you certainly have everything you need for a complete look. Included are five standard mesh sizes, and I was easily able to make one work with my Maitreya mesh body. This for sure is a favorite with it’s high quality and fit. Don’t miss it!

The Holidays Come To Another End

Goodbye Holidays

The Holiday season is always one of my favorite times of the year, so when it’s time to put all the decorations away and begin the new year, it’s always with a little sadness that I do so. I packed up my tree today, and then as I was working on finding a location for this latest blog post, I came across this wonderful part of the latest Bryn Oh artistic expression. If you haven’t been here yet – you need to come and see it and explore the machinima that goes along with it available at the event. This wonderful reindeer with Christmas lights flashing away was just what I needed to put closure on this year’s holiday season.

My gown today is from Tiffany Designs. this is the “Monalisa” gown and is perfect for those New Year’s Eve celebrations. This fitmesh gown comes in five standard fitmesh sizes and works with standard and mesh bodies including the Maitreya body that I am wearing here in this photo. Black main dress has a red accent along the top of the bodice, and this gown along with the tiered lower skirt are all black with a sequin style texture making it festive and fun. It’s perfect for dancing. The headpiece is included with the gown for an even more festive finish to the year. Find this look at the Tiffany Designs Mainstore today and be ready for tonight’s festivities. It will be in the holiday looks room near the entrance.
