Etoile’s world.

The Back Story.

I was struggling mightily trying my darnedest to come up with something that would go with some pink mesh pants that just were not working. I wound up in greens and browns. Of course.

And I’m loving this grassy sim. It’s very Christina’s World. But it’s my world… back off, Christina.

The Back Story.

I love this dress. And it was only 45L at Jack Spoon, a little shop I’d never heard of before until browsing through the blogs the other day and spotted some gift leggings that I figured I might as well have. So off I popped, and there was this dress.

It’s paired here with stockings that I cobbled together using some random free fishnets with some random free modifiable sheer stockings that I ‘colorized’. I was hoping to find something more funky in Etoile’s inventory that wouldn’t be all matchy-matchy and at the same time not ridiculously distracting from the dress, but she has what she has, and that’s just the way it falls out sometimes.

On Etoile’s head is a bit of swag from Bizarre Hair promoting the Crazy Hair Hunt going on this month. If you stay calm, the bees will just go about their business and not care about you. Just don’t stray too far from one spot, or they won’t find their way home, and we have to help the honey bees all we can these days.

The only downside to this dress is that it’s not mesh, and unfortunate things happen to the backside when Etoile stands in certain positions. The right butt-hider alpha might help that, though.

The 100.

The Back Story.

Over-the-knee boots are not a wardrobe staple for Etoile. But these things just seemed to come together.

And, oh, hey…. it’s my 100th post. The little congratulatory blurb that WordPress sent me included a Gloria Steinem quote: “I don’t like to write, but I like to have written.” Is this really writing?

I can haz Sea Hole

The Back Story.

I popped in world last night thinking about doing nothing in particular except maybe fixing a bad job I had done on a previous post. But then I heard this chatter. Something about some  kind of insane blow out at the Sea Hole? Stuff for the cheaps? A thousand little SL voices all chiming in at once about miracles and surprises and one great splendiferous gas at one great splendiferous gas of a store?

Okay. Sign me up. So off I went to see what all the noise and hubbub was about. Yes, there is one item in each of the collections that’s being offered for 50L, which ain’t bad for some cleverly designed stuff. My one disappointment was in the color choices for the sale items. I was so ready to plunk down Ls for versions in yellows and reds and oranges, but everything offered at that price was more in the black, grey and lilac family. That’s all well and good, mind you, but when you’re hankering for a rich orange, the traditional half-mourning color of lilac just doesn’t quite  cut it.

Know what I’m sayin’?

Still, a good dress is a good dress. And I am soooo pleased to be bringing to the feeds this much needed respite from the maddening inundation of virtual “whore” aesthetics….

The Back Story.

I’m having twitchy luck with the mesh goods. Sometimes I put one on, and everything about me but my objects disappears. I turn into a ghost dress with hair and eyeballs. So not attractive. But I didn’t have that problem with this sweet little early ’60’s number from Vinyl Cafe, their latest group gift.

The Back Story.

I picked up some dresses at World’s End Garden some weeks ago, and have been looking for an excuse. This location (The Magic Flute at Imparafacile) was the geographic muse I’d been waiting for.
