Cake Pop

I was putting this look together, thinking of all the sugary things I love to eat – but mostly don’t anymore. And I thought, “Cake Pop!” That’s what I look like today. A scrummy, delicious, cutesy cake pop. I haven’t been by the May Fameshed yet but I know it’s their anniversary and there’s probably a lot worth having. Later… Read more →

Skin Fair 2018: This is Jumo

This is Jumo, a skin brand I have never heard of or seen before. I found the “Brooklin” skin at Skin Fair, of course. I was flying by, doing another sweep of the South Sim during the press preview and floated by an ad on the side of a building that caught my attention. That almost never happens. You know… Read more →

Skin Fair 2018: I’m Smitten

You don’t have to go far to see all the Skin Fair 2018 previews around Flickr and your blog roll. This is the start of mine and it’s led by alaskametro’s “Cora” for LeLutka heads. One of only a few LeLutka appliers that really wow’d me at Skin Fair so far. Not all designers were set up yet, so there’s… Read more →

set the tone

Set the tone

Some of my favorite shade combinations of crimson and lemon set the tone – unexpectedly maybe – for a fresh, cold day. I love the coat and scarf combination from Belle Epoque. You can’t see the boots, but they’re sweet too. I happen to be watching The Crown right (Season II, natch) and you might see something like this in… Read more →

standout separates

Standout Separates

I put together a casual winter look made up of some simple, but standout separates. We had our first snow in Boston this weekend, so it seemed apropos to dress with that in mind. Incidentally, the very first snow I saw this season was in Austin last week. Yes, Texas y’all. It never snows there! WTF? I actually got stuck… Read more →

pre-winter whites

Pre-winter Whites

Is it too early for a fresh winter whites look? OK, let’s call it Pre-winter then? Call it anything – I am so smitten. And you know, I am not a gowny girl. But I am a hopeless romantic and this just does the trick. I used the word “smitten” intentionally. If you’re a regular reader, then you know that’s… Read more →

One small thing

You know how that one small thing can make your look for the day? My one small thing today is my lipstick. A gorgeous matte red by alaskametro; the perfect contrast to my most favorite Sunny skin, which is now available in the palest tone 1. Both of these beauty items are new at ForMax, an event benefiting SL content… Read more →

Indian Summer

It’s been so cool in the mornings that I’ve been wearing light sweaters every day until about lunch time. But I love it, in both lives! This great hat from SAGA came from a new (I think?) event, and I felt like it was a real diamond in the rough there. Super cute and it made me glad I checked… Read more →

that fall feeling

That fall feeling

That fall feeling arrived this morning in Boston. Crisp, cool and not a cloud in the sky. It inspired me to really mix up some of my brightest earthy fall colors. Colors that you might not think ought to go together, but IMO, they very much do. Love! I love everything about this time of year (except Hurricanes – for… Read more →

new faces

New Faces

You know how much I like finding new faces I fancy. Well, I found another. This one from New Faces for LeLutka. Actually Shiny Shabby yielded two new skins for me in fact! Ashley comes in a few tones with different eyebrow color options but no makeups (and no body appliers). It’s a pricey skin for the lack of options,… Read more →
