Funky Fraulein

June 10, 2010

I would have titled this one “Cranky Fraulein,” but that doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.

Yeah, mid-week crankiness abounds, and I was working it out by going through my inventory and trying on a bunch of things that had been languishing, frankly.  I had a whole folder of Modd.G stuff which I had barely tried on– including this fabulous, over the top dress.  After the dress came the new(ish) Maitreya hair with slouchy beret, and suddenly I had visions of meadows of milk cows and fashion-forward leiderhosen.  Am I wrong??

So, here it is.  An outfit borne of closet raiding, and which DID serve to get me over the funk I was in.

Aha!  Funk.  Funky Fraulein.  It comes full circle. 🙂

MUAH!  Hope your day is going beautifully.  Happy shopping!

New Year’s Resolutions

January 9, 2010

It’s that time of year: the turning of the calendar gives us each a good excuse for a bit of naval-gazing and the resolution to make changes where needed.  For me?  Since 2009 was quite possibly the most eventful, strange, wonderful, stressful, tumultuous year of my life, I am just yearning to keep all my lovely new things intact and enjoy them with a little more calmness.

I was inspired by these necklaces I bought a while back– called Ganesha.  I just looked at the notecard today that designer Lucas Lameth (luc) included with this charming set.  I know I should have looked at the insert card sooner, but in fact it turned out to be kismet that today was the day I opened it up.  Apparently, Ganesha is one of the most popular of Hindu deities, and is reputed to be a remover of obstacles, prayed to before the beginning of any new venture.  The elephant head on the necklace represents Ganesha himself.  !!!  The perfect New Year’s inspiration!

Also inspiring?  Yes… the clothes!  I adore yoga in RL, but have never given the SL variety a whirl until now.  I am half-ashamed to admit it, but I was wholly motivated to start because I picked up a pair of these Surf Couture yoga pants.  Shallow of me, I know, but come ON… these have the perfect waistband, perfect scrunchy leg, perfect fit.  They could get anyone into downward facing dog!

Another point of inspiration– this FREE skin.  It’s part of a woodland nymph avatar named Elfa, and you can get the whole av for free just by clicking her sweet little self.  Go ahead!  Find her here.  I just love the freshness, the flush on the cheeks, and the adorable nose.

And now, it is time for me to run and do some stretching of my own.  But in case I forgot to say it before– hope you are having a happy new year and may all your resolutions be successful!  (Well, not TOO successful… there is always next year!  hee!  XOXO )

Outfit details
Skin: Elfa, FREE GIFT
Undershirt: Decoy, Phoenix tee in Plum
Overshirt: silent sparrow, grape Chapiteau set
Pants: Surf Couture, Yoga Pants in white

Date Night

August 28, 2009

It’s Friday, and that means date night!  Yayyy!  Well, it is a bittersweet date night for me tonight, actually, since tomorrow morning I’m leaving my sweetie here in Portugal for two weeks, to visit with my family in the States and get all the final preparations together for our wedding day there.  I guess that deserves another YAY!  But I wish we didn’t have to be apart until just four days before the wedding… no more dates until the honeymoon!

So, you have caught me in a pretty mushy mood today, and my post is an outfit appropriate for a last date before the big day.  We met and started our relationship in SL, so this is a little tribute to him, my wonderful guy and almost hubby…

AND… I have saved the biggest treat for last!  The skin in these pics is from Beetlebones!  Squee!  That’s right, the cutie patootie suetabulous yootz has released her first skin, Amelie.  It is a lovely, soft skin with some great details:

I absolutely love the lips, which are so natural and feathered looking, and the body freckles make me sooooo happy!  Yay!  There are several makeups included in the pack, and on top of everything else it is extremely reasonably priced– more than worth the trip down to creator’s pavillion for a set.  🙂

That’s all for now, fellow shop-a-holics!  Enjoy your Thursday, and happy shopping!
