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

Them Apples


For those of you on the grid who love the Blueberry Butt (which is probably 98% of females and 107% of males), meet the Apple May Bottom. I admit when I opened the pack of Taylor Pants from Apple May Designs I thought, “Oh, a pair of pants. Big deal.” And then I tried them on. The first thing I noticed was the lace waistband and I squeeeeeed just a little. Then I cammed around and saw the back. And I fell in love. Just look at that bum! This is a pair of pants that should NEVER be worn with a long shirt or jacket! Doing that would be akin to putting a drop cloth over the Mona Lisa.

And these pants are dressy. They are textured in a soft, clingy fabric and have a flared bottom, which covers your shoes (sorry, that didn’t make it past the editing). Paired with this adorably soft and feminine top from TETRA, the open back leads the eye to the highlight of the masterpiece: The Apple May Bottom.

You, too, can have this perfect backside by visiting the Apple May Designs booth at Mesh Body Addicts through December 10. Go ahead; you know you want it!

Ladies and gentlemen of Second Life…how about them apples?

Hide & Seek

1 Hide & Seek sm

Peek-a-boo! So, maybe I’m mixing up my children’s games, but who’s counting? Counting to 100…ready, set, here I come!

Sorry, I think I got a bit off track there. I’ll start again.

I am featuring another fabulous hairstyle from Hair Fair 2016 today. The sleek afro cap from Vanity Hair immediately caught my eye. It is a style that can be casual or elegant and does wonders for showing off the face and especially the eyes. I simply love it.

Poor Chance wasn’t fortunate enough to get early access to Hair Fair, so he’s sporting an older style. But there are quite a lot of men’s styles available this year, so I’ll try to get him in before Hair Fair ends to update his look. I have him mainly hidden in this photo, but that hasn’t stopped him from seeking what he wants.

My hair, of course.
