UnFrozen

The world is frozen, quiet. As if…waiting. Waiting for the sun to arrive and bring it to life once more. The winter solstice has passed (I’m rather late, I know) and the world will come full circle. It will, hopefully, soon be time for it to be un-frozen and come alive again.

Winter White

Yep. A while ago I was mourning the arrival of a damp and dreary autumn…but not any more! It’s December! Time for snowy landscapes and wonderful warm winter wear. Oh, and posing in said wonderful warm winter wear up against those snowy landscapes. Nothing like a change in the weather to inspire one’s muse once again!

Dirty Old Town

I think I can stop hoping that summer is still trying to stick around. The weather has definitely changed around here- it seems to have gone from warm and sunny to grey and wet overnight! All in all, though, I don’t mind too much…while a spell of of warmth and sun is always welcomed, I do so enjoy autumn. The leaves turn brilliant colours, the earth is well hydrated once more, and I get to overdose on all things pumpkin while snuggling up in front of my fireplace.

The only thing that leaves me a bit flat is the dullness of the city. When the skies are grey and there’s rain in the air, there no denying that all that concrete does nothing to stir the imagination. That may be why red is such a favourite colour to wear this time of year, because it is so delightfully defiant of all that grey! Black and red are a nice contrast to the monochrome, and cooler temperatures are a nice excuse to dust off the hats and boots.

Dreamed a dream, by the old canal
I kissed my girl, by the factory wall
Dirty old town, dirty old town…”

Armadillery

Armadillery1

Unfortunately, I haven’t Been Through The Desert On A Horse With No Name, but I can at least find appropriate places in Second Life to pose as though I had! And while he may not be a horse, Armadillo there is still a charming companion. If you haven’t been to the Baja Norte sim, you should probably go sometime. There are quite a few spots to take some snazzy photos.

Nautica dress (colour change HUDS rock my socks…when I’m wearing them) from Miel
Jill hair (hat and another HUD included) in Lightbrown05 from Truth
Harley skin in Peach from Pink Fuel
Pearl eyes in caramel from Poetic Colors

Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked

If there’s no rest for the wicked, then I fear Tessa may never sleep again…

Slick

All latex is not created equal, am I right? If you’ve not been to Drift before, I suggest you rectify that oversight as expeditiously as possible. Kallisto Destiny has a store full of meshtastic casual pretties that are guaranteed to brighten up anyone’s Second Life summer, but one of the more recent releases is the Oblivion set- itty bitty latex jobs with that brilliant colour-change HUD. With a teeny outfit this delicious, I think we can all pretty much agree that there will in fact be no rest whatsoever for the wicked. And she wouldn’t want it any other way!

“There ain’t no rest for the wicked; money don’t grow on trees
I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
And ain’t nothing in this world for free
I know I can’t slow down, I can’t hold back
Though you know I wish I could…
No, there ain’t no rest for the wicked, til we close our eyes for good…”
-Cage The Elephant

Cross Your Eyes…

…and dot your T’s!
No, wait. That’s not right. Is it? Well, even if it’s not, at least something is being dotted! Things be dotty all over the place here. The Banded Dotty top and Spotted Tiered skirt are among recent offerings from Sanura Snowpaw at Somnia, and all the spots and dots and lovely colour combinations have me smiling ever so much.

Cross Your Eyes

I had a terrible time trying to choose footwear…sandals? My sneakers? Finally I decided simply to paint my toes and go barefoot. It’s easy to be cute and feel entirely guilt free about it in this little outfit, trust me. I would suggest porting your pixels to Somnia to experience the cuteness in person!
