Beach Stroll

Summer is here! Finally!

My favorite SL Summer event- Summerfest, kicked off yet another wonderful round and just as I foresaw, I spent a small fortune on all sorts of new goodies for the season, including hair, swimsuits and these new shorts from Paper Arrow. I love that they come with a hud to change the color and texture of the bikini part, but since it didn’t come with a matching top, I decided to pair it with the one from the new Eunoia bikini from Boom. The bikini isn’t fitted mesh, but it is mesh body friendly with an included re-sizable version that I had no trouble fitting to Lara. As always, it’s always best to try a demo beforehand.

Peter’s been away traveling and I hated the entire month he was gone- including his bad internet connections! Nevertheless, he’s home… finally! So naturally, we shopped ’til we dropped, then ran right to one of our favorite hangout spots to walk along the beach and snap some pictures.

Dutchie a la Frenchie

Froukje Hoorenbeek, the mastermind behind the gorgeous and oft times super naughty Dutchie Furniture, has some fantabulous new releases this month. Both desk with chair and chaise lounge are color changeable via menu and as always, the quality is amazing, something we’ve all come to rely on from Dutchie.

The desk comes in both pg and adult versions, with 19 solo animations, one sequence and wearable/rezzable props. The french inspired lounger also comes in both versions and of course, the adult version can be tried at dutchie adult.

I’m also wearing the tuxedo version of the new Macha Outfit by Gizza, which I adore! Frankly, anything tuxedo inspired I love and just have to dig out the classic fedora to pair it with. I’m also using a new pose by an lar poses to stretch out on my new chaise. You can find these poses and other stretching inspired poses at the Oneword Event.

Barbie & Ken

As a little girl, I loved playing with my Barbie dolls. Dressing them up, brushing their hair and oh- the accessories! Now, what are our avatars but virtual Barbie’s, right? I was giddy over the fact that Peter let me dress him up as Ken to my adult version of Barbie, with lots and lots of pink and the inspiration for it all, this loose tank from Le Primitif and (barbie pink) peeptoes from Co57!

Afterwards, we had so much fun walking along the pretty boardwalk at Silver Lake, riding the ferris wheel, munching on cotton candy and nachos (I told him to get his own!) and enjoying the pretty sunset out over the water.

I’d love to see your versions of this famous childhood couple, or even just the fashionista herself!

Nautical Nonsense

Happy Summer!

June 21st marks the Summer Solstice- the first day of Summer! Living in the South that means lots of heat, humidity and the ever-predictable thunderstorm. But it also means lots of sunny days, trips to the beach and an excuse to where practically nothing everywhere. It’s definitely my favorite season! While I may not be baring all here, I am definitely channeling summer with a few of the nautical-themed items that have seriously hit the shelves these past couple of weeks. Both Collabor88 with it’s nautical showcase, as well as the new line of releases by Gizza, all of which definitely sweep us into summer on a sweet and salty breeze.
