Literary Kitty

This isn’t an unfamiliar sight at my place. Curled up with a book while my cat cuddles me. The only difference is that’s a Kindle instead of an actual book, but that’s a minor point.

The theme for the September round of The Liaison Collaborative is “Literary-ly”. There are loads of reading-inspired items available. Some, like the pose set from Le Poppycock are more literal, while others, such as my gown, earrings and rings are inspired more figuratively. All are delightful; all are divine.

I have to say, though, that my favourite item from this round is the Rose LeLutka Applier from *Birth*. I know I said just a few days ago that I had found my new look, but then I tried on this skin. New. Instant. Fave.

I have long been a fan of *Birth*, and this new release is a classic example of why. Beautiful texturing and tone, great lip, eyeliner and makeup options, and just so lovely. I think I’m as pretty as a picture in this skin.

I’m perfectly poised in it, just like my literary kitty.

Oh, So French

Bonsoir et ooh la la, mes amis! Despite three years of high school French, that is about all you will get from me in the way of français. The title was inspired by the Paris lingerie by Salt & Pepper for the July round of Mesh Body Addicts. This lingerie has a very nostalgic feel and is uber sexy, yet demure. The tight ponytail from TETRA out of the July Luxe Box works beautifully with the look and feel and the Orangery by Scarlet Creative, also from Luxe Box, is the ideal setting.

There was a lot more to the setting of this photo, but as is so often the case, it was lost on the cutting room floor. Had I just plopped down the build, shoved in the bench and flounced onto it, I would have gotten done a lot more quickly. But then I wouldn’t have had the luxury of feeling like a French girl for an afternoon.

C’est tellement français
