The Little Black Dress

So I couldn’t blog black without making a little black dress post, right?! I found this one by Nyu at My Attic (there’s only two days left to go get some awesome and affordable stuff, by the way). It is the first time I wear Nyu and I really like this dress, it is simple, elegant, well cut, not too formal, pretty and sexy. I will definitely get more clothes from that creator. For the shooting I went to Umbral photography sim, and found what I was looking for inside the main building, a stage in an adult environment, with plenty of red and black to match my outfit. I also love how the hair color sort of “melts” from red to black and fusions with the black dress.

So I am having fun with my black experience. I went to creative writing workshops a few times, and really liked how the “rules” or “constraints” opened the imagination and increased creativity. I feel a bit the same about this color restriction. Instead of closing doors, it opens a whole unexpected universe.

There are darknesses in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights.

Happy Dear Shiny Shabby Time Again

shoeclose up dorothy deetalez tableau vivant ikon tableau vivant happy mood shiny shabby e clipse dorothy e clipse aqua dorothy shiny shabby may

As we speak, Shiny Shabby event is opening its gates for its May Round.

Shiny Shabby is specialised in vintage fashion and deco, and it is my absolute favourite event on the grid, it’s like my monthly Christmas. It opens on the 20 and I start getting excited around the 15, counting the days, then the hours, the minutes… and then it’s my happy hour, my monthly recreation, I enjoy myself immensely discovering the new treasures designers got out for us vintage lovers. And after each visit I come up with a post showing all my absolute favorite things of my favorite day. So that’s what you see here 🙂

I am in love with this outfit by E-Clipse, this ruffled shirt and jeans are just adorable and so sexy. This hair from Tableau Vivant, I have decided to get it for all my posing alts and do a hair family pic because I love it so much, it’s so cool and wild.

And then heels. I am a flat shoes girl in rl, I just don’t feel comfortable with anything that’s not completely flat but I do love heels, they’re pretty and sexy so in my Second Life I wear only heels, they look fab and you don’t have the hassle to having to walk with them ^^. I live in a city covered in cobblestones and each times I went out in heels I feared for my ankles. I look at the girls and ladies in heels like if they were supernatural goddesses with ultra powers lol. Anyways, all this to say I dig the Essenz high heelsI found.. guess where ?!

At Shiny shabbyyyyyyyy !!!!! 😀

I started dressing vintage when I was a teenager because I didn’t have money for designer clothes.

“Is it really possible to tell someone else what one feels?”
― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

So, this is the first time ever I try to do pictures with two avatars, I must say I struggled a bit, first because my beloved macbook does not like me to open two Firestorm windows at the same time, I asked for help in the Firestorm support group but the solutions offered on the wiki page they sent me too are a bit too geeky for me, I did try but I’m probably not smart enough because nothing worked. Eventually I used a Firestorm window for one avatar and an Alchemy window for the second, and that did the trick. I will need more training to use the Lumipro for two simultaneous models but I think it’s really interesting, and opens a lot of new possibilities. I had been thinking about modelling two avies for a while, and this is just a first try. I grabbed another old avatar of mine and proceeded to a complete make over, trying to make her look like Krystal but different. And then I thought I was going to use two single poses in the same picture but finally I chose to use a couple pose to show them together. I picked this “Feelings” pose, I think it’s pretty cute 🙂 Also, hairs, skins, clothes all come from Collabor88, except for the shoes that come from The Chapter Four, and Lola’s adorable collar from ON9.

Okidoki, let’s credit !

Who Needs a Dress ?!

This post is dedicated to the Zenith Gacha @ Shiny Shabby that has a wonderful dress in it but never wanted to give it to me, so I had to do with dozens of tables, frames, headpieces and violins. Finally, I think I had more fun playing with the “who needs a dress” thing that if I had actually won the dress ^^.

Being Ophelia (poor Ophelia)







“There is a willow grows aslant a brook,
That shows his hoar leaves in the glassy stream.
There with fantastic garlands did she come
Of crowflowers, nettles, daisies, and long purples,
That liberal shepherds give a grosser name,
But our cold maids do dead men’s fingers call them.
There on the pendant boughs her coronet weeds
Clamb’ring to hang, an envious sliver broke,
When down her weedy trophies and herself
Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide
And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up; 
Which time she chaunted snatches of old tunes,
As one incapable of her own distress,
Or like a creature native and indued
Unto that element; but long it could not be
Till that her garments, heavy with their drink, 
Pull’d the poor wretch from her melodious lay
To muddy death.”
