Yesterday, one of my favorite stores – Leezu! released this gorgeous summery mesh top that is sheer in some areas. I love the back to this top an well just everything about it. The Souchi top is a wonderful addition to any sl wardrobe and lets just say I’m growing ever fond of transparent mesh.
I am also wearing brand new hair from Lelutka, that you must go and get now! New Lily v1. Skin from Belleza which is gorgeous and just boosts the overall quality of your avatar. The earrings are from La Gyo and you can get them at the Fairy Tales Event 2012. The jeans and flip flops previously blogged by me are from Maitreya.
Have a lovely sunday!
“In this life you have to be your own hero.
By that I mean you have to win whatever it is that matters to you by your own strength and in your own way.
Like it or not, you are alone in a forest, just like all those fairy tales that begin with a hero who’s usually stupid but somehow brave, or who might be clever, but weak as a straw, and away he goes (don’t worry about the gender), cheered on by nobody, via the castles and the bears, and the old witch and the enchanted stream, and by and by (we hope) he’ll find the treasure.”
― Jeanette Winterson, The PowerBook
“The stories we sit up late to hear are love stories. It seems that we cannot know enough about this riddle of our lives. We go back and back to the same scenes, the same words, trying to scrape out the meaning. Nothing could be more familiar than love. Nothing else eludes us so completely.”

“Uninvited, the thought of you stayed too late in my head,
so I went to bed, dreaming you hard, hard, woke with your name,
like tears, soft, salt, on my lips, the sound of its bright syllables
like a charm, like a spell.”
“Falling in love
is glamorous hell; the crouched, parched heart
like a tiger ready to kill; a flame’s fierce licks under the skin.
Into my life, larger than life, beautiful, you strolled in.
I hid in my ordinary days, in the long grass of routine,
in my camouflage rooms. You sprawled in my gaze,
staring back from anyone’s face, from the shape of a cloud,
from the pining, earth-struck moon which gapes at me”
“and I open the bedroom door. The curtains stir. There you are
on the bed, like a gift, like a touchable dream.”

So I’m happy to report, whatever the reason one of my favorite weekly sales events is back.. the mother that started them all.. oh yes Fifty Linden Friday. So what did I buy? I got this adorable hair from Wasabi Pills. Makeup from Adore and Abhor, and this shirt from Schadenfreude all for 5oL each.. yay!
Also speaking of good deals the skin that I am wearing is from Myndi Meredith and she is a new skin designer that has made a BARE base skin to put your makeup layers on so you can create a totally new look from all the fantastic makeup layers out there. The Bare base skin in ivory is only 300L and you can check it out here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Bare-Katy-Ivory/3619662 It is a very nice skin for the price and like I said the ways to customize it are endless. Also my jeans were not on sale and are from Maitreya.
Every time coldLogic makes a new release it’s a sure thing that I’m going to buy at least something, as they are just that kind of store for me.. and the newest releases of dresses were no exception. They are all beautiful and you should go check em out!
The jewelry in this post comes from Mandala and the hair from Exile. The furniture in the background is from What Next and the house is from Funky Junk which are both my current living room. The Poses in this post are from Collabor88 made by the store Marukin. My skin is from Belleza, the Lily v1.. I felt had the perfect warmth for this outfit.
Almost done with my SL house – as a very special kiddo has come to be my daughter… Miss Tilly Faye Olivier who is an aspiring blogger/fashionista herself who will soon be starting Edgewood Prep. The little one in the photo is my grandchild Ayamemei. Both have brought countless hours of joy to my sl as of recently and my heart is happy. I’m sure that there will be more to come.
One Bad Pixel, if you haven’t been there already what are you doing? To me they are one of the hottest mesh shops around right now. They have had some recent new releases and one of them is this really beautiful dress with floral embellishments and a daring neckline.
I really think this dress is romantic and sexy at the same time, maybe for a dancing date in SL or an outdoor wedding reception. I am also wearing the new Cynthia hair from Truth.. that little braid is adorable. My skin is from Belleza who in this Lily v1 skin makes some of the most beautiful makeup combinations in SL and has a creamy smooth skin tone. To me, this skin has a warm sensual glow.
And look, how perfectly lady-like and gorgeous the full length of the dress. In this post I used poses from Adorkable.
