The Dark Angel On My Shoulder — Baboom Couture and October’s 4Seasons New Releases

I begin the day with a captivating gown created by Kyra at Baboom Couture. This Dark Angel gown replete with the most unique skirt and beautiful wings struck me on a personal level and I found myself feeling ethereal, as if for a moment or two, I had an angel on my shoulder as I worked with the photos.

Each year the sophistication of the program on which we play or live or however you define your Second Life grows more realistic, offers more options and in essence becomes more… more beautiful, more dynamic, offering more options to the creative minds behind content creation. This reflects both in the gown I wear and the surroundings. Just look at the rabbits, the trees laden with snow and the icy waterfall. Gorgeous.

October’s 4Seasons has a brand new set of Holiday Designs nails for you, coming very soon. They’re unique in the fact that instead of having a colorful base and silver tips, the silver is a crescent of shiny and the rest of the nail is painted color with silver etchings. You’ll love adding them to holiday themed attire.

Oh So Naughty, Sexxxy and Fun – Paisley Daisy’s Peace On Earth Hunt 7 (POE 7) and Carrie’s Lingerie

My latest look comes from two exceptionally sexy designs put together; also shown separate from one another.

Paisley Daisy has a shear Snowflake Gown as it’s contribution to the Peace On Earth Hunt 7 (POE 7). There’s absolutely nothing hidden when wearing the lacy frock. Depending on your tastes and style, you could really make a special someone very happy to see you. Is it formal? I don’t know. You tell me. It’s about the naughtiest full length gown I’ve ever worn!

Carrie’s Lingerie created a world of holiday magic for it’s customers and pulled out the best of the best for the VIP special section. If you have not ever visited Carrie’s, I really encourage you to do so. There are items for men and women. No matter what, your special someone should find you extra sizzling hot to trot in Carrie’s designs. Avi Choice created a shopping space this year dedicated to the designers who’d been nominated, and Carrie’s was there. Under the tree, an original holiday design was free for the touching, this shear holiday version of Malorie. In it’s original form, Malorie breathed sexy, but with the special holiday colors, it’s even more able to do so.

It’s difficult to catch on a virtual world camera the fact that the white flower from Paisley Daisy that I wore on my head with a puff of roses as well to compliment the lace and the lingerie, it snows. Small specks of snow followed me wherever I ven (Read more...)

A Happy Yule To You — Featuring Wicca’s Wardrobe

YULE (circa December 21)

(Winter Solstice, December 20-23 (varies according to the particular date on the standard calendar according to when the Solstice will occur astronomically)). Longest night of the year, the turning point when the days shall afterwards grow longer as winter begins its passage into the coming spring. It is, in the Goddess worship, the time when she gives forth again to the birth of the Divine Sun child who shall be both child and eventually lover and father of the next child in the cycle. Winter Solstice for pagans is a time of feasting and the exchanging of gifts and is the original Holiday that the Christian religions modified into their own Christmas, even up to the birth of the child (Most theologians who have spent time studying the birth of Jesus admit he was born in either March or April, not the celebrated Christmas date we all know from the standard calendar – it was moved to this date to help induce Pagans to give up their old ways yet allow them their holidays during the spread of Christianity through Europe and the British Isles). Traditional adornments are a Yule Log, usually of oak, and a combination of mistletoe and holly (also all later plagiarized into Christian ways).

Inspired by Wicca’s Wardrobe Carol Gown Red/Green. Everything else I’ve shown you on previous blogs tho I did dye my hair from Lybra a multiple colored holiday array. I wonder if it will ever dye back!? Blessings…

Peace On Earth Hunt 7 (POE 7) Inspiration – Xen’s Hats, Snowpaws, and -{ZOZ}-; Plus New Items From BSD Design Studio and Wicca’s Wardrobe

I really enjoyed putting this outfit together. I think I may say that often but the repetition of the saying doesn’t in any way denigrate the truth being the statement. I love the fresh feel of fashion through the eyes of many beholders and when I begin mixing and matching designers, I see this even more so.

This whole look comes inspired from pieces found at the Peace On Earth Hunt 7 (POE 7). I ADORE Carrie Snowpaw. She and I have loads in common, and whether it’s a week or a month that passes since we last spoke, it feels like it was just a few minutes ago. Those types of relationships are the essence of what I think of when I think of holidays. The Ribbon Dress, POE 7, comes from Snowpaws. It’s long enough to wear alone, with tights or a pair of leggins like I used. Xen’s Hats at POE 7 has a beanie that’s too cute for words and unisex. -{ZOZ}- additions to POE include both the necklace called Unwrap Me and the special holiday themed Gift Polish.

Blowing You Each A Little Kiss

BSD Design studio created the heels and they work with my SLink High feet. The leggins come from Wicca’s Wardrobe. I used the solid pair of Sazzy pants in a previous blog and this is the second option, a delightful pattern that has several colors so you can wear with many themes. This season of tights and leggins are right up my alley, by the way, because I grew up in the 80s and everyone wanted to dress like the dancer in Flash Dance, (Read more...)

Looking a Lot Like Fun – *Whimsical Imaginarium*, Chop Zuey, A&A, and Peace On Earth Hunt 7 (POE 7) w/ Soul Designs

This morning began with a bit of a ditzy moment. But I think it’s all fixed now and I can wipe my brow. I growl at myself when I do something dumb. I’m glad the people who I’m privileged to work with understand my humanity and like me anyway!

I’m at Rue a la Page again this morning and today I have on a great jacket design from Whimsical Imaginarium: the Loose Girl Jacket. Just the name itself always makes me smile. Bodza designs the items and always has a flair for the fantastical.

I’m also sporting a pretty little holiday skirt – Soul Designs Bowed Mini Skirt – from Peace On Earth Hunt 7 (POE7), Chop Zuey has the Britto Cool Sunglasses out to go with the Romero Britto inspired collection, and another great pair of heels come from the vivid imagination of Wicca’s Wardrobe called Ripley heels, and last I found a bit of busy hair that seems to match my ditzy morning so well. ~laughs~ It’s A&A Makena in Jet Black.

So I Met This Reindeer — Featuring ~ghee and Loovus Dzevavor

So I met this reindeer…

It’s a good way for a Christmas story to start, isn’t it? I met this reindeer at Image Essentials Props and Poses. I hadn’t been over there in a while to see the new displays and pose studio updates and happily discovered a furry friend. I had a jacket in storage, something from Loovus Dzevavor that was just waiting for the right moment to appear, and paired with a comfy warm top and leggings/tights set from ~ghee. Heels from -{ZOZ}- capped off the casual dress.

And then there were antlers. Bodza created them as part of an outfit from Whimsical Imaginarium called Merry Snowflake. So festive!

It’s a Jolly Holiday With Carrie’s – VIP At Carrie’s Is Always Special ~ Also KaTink Wants You To Look Epic, So Sexy With New Poses!

I love going over to the Rose Theatre at Angel Manor. The grounds and indoors are a labyrinth of hallways and ball rooms, an art theatre and so so much more. I noticed the clock on the wall behind me was keeping real time (not just a prop, it’s useful too!!) so you can tell how long I ended up hanging out there while I was working. I also happened to meet this very cute little critter. There was an angel in the critter’s name and it talked to me as it hopped by on the way to the dining hall. I thought of Alice and her first vision of the Whiite Rabbit. I don’t think I was dreaming, but who knows, right? I mean, I am a Caryn.

The Sexiest Can Also Be The Most Elegant

I’ve got new poses from KaTink. Have you ever talked to the lady behind the pose maker? I got to learn some of her story last night and it was sweet, and gave me new insight on what she does and why she does it. When you get inspiration from emotion, positive enriching life emotion, the products of that are always the best, as are her poses. This pair of poses I used were from the Opal Editorial set. You can find all sorts of fun at KaTink, but even more so, you can meet Ms. AnneMarit.

Innocence and Mischief

Carrie’s Lingerie begins with lingerie but it doesn’t end there. It’s like opening those little Russian nesting dolls. Each time you take away a layer, there’s another to enjoy. This elegant gown comes FREE, yes really truly free as par (Read more...)
