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.

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
