Love Not Required

1-jessica-sm

Oh how you sparkle
and oh how you shine.
That flush on your cheeks
is more than the wine.
And he must do something
that I didn’t do
whatever he’s doing,
it looks good on you.

~ from “You Look So Good In Love” by George Strait

Romantically Metallic

1-romantically-metallic-sm

Buckle up for this round of The Liaison Collaborative, running from February 7-30. Romatically Metallic is the theme, and it is sparkling and divine. Almost everything I’m wearing is from this event.

While I love the earrings and hair, the lipstick and eye shadows from Izzie’s will definitely make it into my regular rotation. But my favourite item is the glasses from The Plastik. With a texture-change HUD for the frame, the diamonds and the lenses, they are chic, funky and fun. Must have stuff!

A note on my pose. I was planning on using the “I” pose from {NANTRA}‘s ASL I Love You pose set. This is a set of poses for Bento hands that spells out I Love You in American Sign Language. When I decided to try a different pose (from an lar [poses]), I didn’t step off of the pose stand that comes with the ASL set. While my body pose changed, my hands retained the ASL sign for “I”. So I accidentally created a hybrid pose that I really liked.

The round has just begun, so be sure to add TLC to your calendar. You will want to check out all of the romantically metallic prettiness at this event.

Lazy Autumn Stroll

1-lazy-autumn-stroll-sm

Autumn is my favourite time for taking a walk. With the nip in the air, it is always best to have a big, warm guy to tag along. There is no need to hurry; dawdling is encouraged.

There are tons of new autumn-appropriate items floating around the grid this month. Starting with me, the dress from *Just BECAUSE* comes with a bolero to keep your arms nice and snug. The leg warmers from fri.day keep my legs toasty and the hat from JfL keeps the heat from seeping out of my head.

Chance has a totally new look (see below for all of his meshy wonderfulness), including the jacket/shirt combination from VRSION. Given my appalling lack of male fashion sense, I was thrilled to see this combo and sent Chance running to TMD to pick it up. He has even grown a beard for the season, compliments of an awesome group gift from NO.MATCH!

On to the scene…I am in love with the bicycle prop from {what next}. With a basket chock-full of pumpkins, it is perfect for a fall setting. With contributions from Apple Fall and Kalopsia, plus the finishing touch of the wrought iron fence from Botanical, we found the ideal spot to rest on our lazy autumn walk.
