Through The Stillness

It has been many, many years since I rode horseback. As a child, I rode often, but since adulthood, I haven’t had the opportunity. Except, that is, in Second Life.

The lovely braided mane for the Water Horse Bento Riding Horse is from Jinx and is available at the August round of The Liaison Collaborative. My horse is prancing out, so proud of her appearance.

The dress I am wearing from ChicModa fits perfectly into this fantasy setting. It is pretty and feminine and a great little frock for summertime. It is available only through today at Cosmopolitan, so hurry in to pick it up.

It is tranquil and calm on my ride, a journey through the stillness.

Bubbles In The Rain

When you’re stepping out into the rain, you should do it in style. Even if you don’t have a chic raincoat, you can be fashionable in these cute Wellies from fri.day for Collabor88. In multiple colours, these boots are unrigged. They were fitted for Maitreya Lara, but by hiding your feet and making a few adjustments, you should be able to make them work for other mesh bodies. They are well worth splashing out on, come rain or shine.

Thorn Of The Rose

Last chance alert! The Liaison Collaborative closes soon – as in today. If you haven’t been yet, do hurry; it’s a fabulous round. Among the goodies are the NO.PRESSURE hair from NO.MATCH, one of my favourites. You can also find a couple of wonderful pose series by CORPUS. I am using Against The Wall for these photos, but Sizzle is perfect for those sexy summer shots.

These items came together to compliment the star of my post, the Anouk gown from Salt & Pepper. This stunner is coming to Mesh Body Addicts Fair, which opens on August 1st. I couldn’t decide which side to highlight, so I shot both the front and back. The texturing has to be seen to truly appreciate; it goes from a lovely opaque design on the bodice to a slightly sheer fabric across the tummy then back to full coverage for the sleek skirt. Then you have the deep cuts on the sides with exquisite strings tying it together.
