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.

No Disguise For Tears

I have been doing quite a few portraits lately, mainly to highlight styles from Hair Fair. I am not an expert at head shots, but this is another one I have done in the last couple of weeks. When an event that benefits a wonderful charity (Wigs for Kids) rolls around, I think it’s my responsibility to truly make that product the focus of my work.

The hair I am wearing is called TOZASHI from ayame ame, one of several new-to-me designers I love from Hair Fair 2017. The braid which covers one eye is optional via HUD. The sleek bob is a classic, and will work with any more conservative look while adding the braid gives you an edgier look. I adore styles that give you a choice with the simple click of a button.

I am once again featuring makeup from Zibska at the July round of The Liaison Collaborative. While I don’t normally wear bright-coloured makeup, these palettes just work for me. That makes me happy.

No disguise for tears. No substitute for happiness.

Eternity

This photo was inspired by that famous scene in “From Here To Eternity” (you can see it in the sidebar of the Wikipedia page). The only difference is I’m a redhead. And not being covered by the crashing waves. And I’m alone.

Still…I’m lying on a beach, so I figured that was close enough.

In all honesty, the inspiration actually came from the hair I am wearing: Lorelay by enVOGUE HAIR, available at Hair Fair 2017. These braids just begged for a shot from the back, although it looks equally lovely from the front and the side. It pairs perfectly with the peaches sarong set from neve. out now at The Liaison Collaborative.

Also at TLC are these magical ankle beads from Mosquito’s Way. What makes them magical, you ask? They are also a pair of heels, which you can toggle via HUD. Such versatility – you can have either heels with or without the beads or the beads alone. Awesome and amazing!

For the H&G crowd, be prepared because The Home Show 2017 is opening today. The lovely seashells and starfish are from [ keke ], bits of beach rubble from her The Whole Shemoley set. Stop by her booth at the event; everything [ keke ] is guaranteed to be fabulous.

Eternity gave me inspiration. All the pretty things gave me the post.
