The Missing Mile

I do love the Missing Mile Dark Rural Community. I wandered the streets in search of ambiance and found it at every turn!

My jeans are the lovely bootcut Klara from Pixicat. I’ve never met a Pixicat I didn’t like! I love mixing and matching, so I paired up my perfect jeans with the top from a skirt/top combo outfit from Paris Metro. I love the texture of this top. My boots are amazing! Ankle boots, perfect for pants, leather and chains, from Bleich. I know I picked them up at an event but I neglected to write down where. To my dismay, if I don’t write it down these days, it’s not going to get remembered. Bleich is available on SL Market place and I’ve included the link for the online store below.

Tall Tall Shadow

Untitled
Sometimes a hot outfit and high high heels are just what a girl needs to cast a tall tall shadow. My lovely top with the sweet back is from MYNX. This Flare Crop Tank is lilac and there are other colours to choose from. I love how fresh and summery this top is. My skirt is a new group gift from agapee, the pretty Botanical skirt. These sky high heels are from Glamistry that I picked up at a recent Fifty Linden Friday. Now, go cast your own powerful shadow!

Let It Rain

The best thing that one can do when it is raining is to let it rain.’
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow~
Let It Rain
When it’s raining, you can also pick up this fantastic umbrella/pose set from Le Poppycock that you can find over at Men Only Monthly! MOM is on till May 15. Olivia’s poses are as amazing as usual and the ample umbrella is colour-change! The “Finger” choice of colour/texture is especially evocative.😀 Also, I took a stroll over to the Men Only District and wowee is there ever a ton of awesome stuff for guys! I remember back in the day that the complaint was that there wasn’t much great stuff for male avatars but we seem to have come over that hump, so to speak. For my stroll in Rainy City, I’ve wearing a lovely new top from Neve, Dazed in Linear. Every top comes with a four-colour hud. My snazzy trousers are the Shinoda pants in khaki. I picked them up over at Vinyl for Fifty Linden Friday. My shoes are from Livalle and my hair is Talvikki from TKW. Happy Sunday!

What are your favourites?

Untitled
My RL sis, TinLiz Winterstorm, was talking about some of her favourite things on her blog and on Flickr, and she made a list of topics. I decided to see her topics and raise her a couple more topics. And yes, my favourite book is The Stand by Stephen King.
ice cream flavor: praline
movie: there are so many to pick from but I’ll say A Knight’s Tale
actor: Keifer Sutherland (since I was but a slip of a girl, which is something as he and I are almost the same age)
auto maker: Toyota (I had a 1982 Tercel that went forever!)
country musician: errr…umm…..😦
breed of dog: I love our mutty mutt mutt but I’ve always wanted a Rotweiller
musical movie: Rock of Ages (it redeemed Tom Cruise and I saw the live version in Vegas!)
card game: Hearts
colour: orange, in all tones
season: Autumn, even though everyone loves autumn these days (see Pinterest)
rock musician: I cannot pick one, so…Robert Plant, Dennis DeYoung, Brad Delp, Barry Manilow (jk about that last one…he’s not rock!)
Nikon or Canon: Nikon
Tim Horton’s or Starbucks: Tim Horton’s
favourite quote: When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. Max Planck, Nobel Physicist (If you thought Wayne Dyer originally said this, he did not.)

Okay, on with the show. I’m all summered up with these awesome new shorts from MYNX (for Belleza and SLink bodies only). Everyone needs a great pair of denim shorts as a staple of a summer wardrobe. I picked up this cute little top from Vinyl at Tres Chic. You get two versions per pack. Add in these great shoes from Kokoia (Shoe Project Fair) and you’re set!

When Doves Cry

A sad day yesterday with the passing of Prince.
Untitled
Chickadees are one of my favourite kinds of birds so when I spied this wonderful Spring Bird tattoo at Tres Chic from Nanika I snapped it right up. The details are lovely, the pink petals are very spring-like, and you will get the tattoo in both fresh and faded versions. This tattoo comes with Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and SLink appliers as well as a version for the classic avatar. Over at On9 it’s anniversary time and NYU created some stunning Mary Janes with over the knee socks. Here the shoes are teal and you get lots of colours for the socks on a handy hud.
