La Dolce Vita

Could life get any sweeter than this?
Designer Nile Karas has created a beautiful Dolce Vita gown
for her FLOWER DREAMS collection.
The gown with its figure-hugging lines and flared skirt bottom and train 
comes in several versions.  This one is called Countess.

This gown epitomizes la dolce vita!
What a lovely feminine silhouette is produced!
I love wearing it.

The sweet life also calls for sweet gems.
Here I've chosen Zuri Rayna's Sparkle Sky Gold set with its
color-changing gems.

 Doesn't this beautiful offering make you want to go out dancing?
Where shall we go?

Luxury in Gold

If you want a taste of luxury in the extreme, 
you must visit Angel Manor Estate. 
It's the open home of Kaya Angel & Royal Court 
for the Angel Family Furniture and Building sales. 
Horse stables, dancing and lots of areas to relax and take in the environment abound. 
My favorite part of my visit was the romantic grand home open for exploration. 
So follow the landmark and take a peek at the posh side of Second Life!

Designer Marianela Beaumont's new release Woman in Gold gown
continues with the posh theme of Angel Manor beautifully.
A modest flash of leg gives the wearer
just the right amount of flirtatious sensuality,
and the airy skirt floats as if made of gossamer.

Again, my favorite jewelry designer, Zuri Rayna,
provides the perfect jewelry to adorn and flatter any woman.
A fitting accompaniment for Marianela's gown,
Zuri's Serenity Fall set in espresso
adds just the magic to complete the posh look of our model.

Strappy dress sandals for Slink attachment high feet
are a sweet addition with the purchase of the gown.
Thank you, Marianela and Zuri for giving
the women of Second Life such glamorous apparel.

The sceptre, learning, physic, must
All follow this and come to dust.
All lovers young, all lovers must
Consign to thee and come to dust.
Words by William Shakespeare

* * *

The White Armory's Bee Dumpling creates
the most beautiful gowns for roleplay
and simply for wearing.
Her new Superstition gown suits
the setting of our Cymbeline's midnight musings.

Our queenly Cymbeline would never wear any royal jewels
other than those designed and created by Zuri Rayna,
jewelry maker extraordinaire.
Her Imperial Chocolate set matches exactly
Cymbeline's mood and gown.

What better place to dance to the words of Shakespeare
than the graveyard at Kismet?

My Prince Will Come ... or Not

The Rose Theatre & Art Gallery
lends an elegance to any evening.
The fragrance of roses wafts on the gentle breeze,
and moonlight washes the benches
and paved courtyards with an ethereal glow.

To this romantic setting, add our heroine wearing

This lovely strapless black and white gown 
hugs a woman's curves while flowing about her feet.

Enter, handsome prince ... ummmm..

It was a fun evening of solo wandering.

A Foggy Day

 Recently I was out and about on a foggy day
 and found a lovely place -
The Grove Country Club Estates.
What better place to show off 
the vibrant color of my dress?
Eliza Cabassoun's Imagination Rouge Gown from her
Roots & Wings collection suited my mood 
as I strove to push away the foggy day. 

Stopping at an old fountain,
I tossed in a coin and crossed my fingers
hoping for my wish to come true.
Alas, the fog remained.

I suddenly remembered an old wives' tale:
For every fog in August,
there will be a snow during the coming winter.
As I laughed at such superstition,
the tickling of the golden strands of my choker
reminded me that all it takes to lift a fog
is a dress by Eliza Cabassoun and
jewelry by Zuri Rayna!

Meet You at Midnight

As our heroine prepares for the dance
on Midnight Bayou,
she can't help but dance through the foyer
... as his last words play in her head.
Meet you at midnight!

Shades of Amanda

Every woman has many shades of herself.
Men have been discovering that since the beginning of time.
FlowerDreams' creator Nile Karas has created
four looks from the same dress
just by changing the colors.
As a woman can change the color of her hair,
now she can have four shades of this same wonderful dress.
The Amanda dress not only gives us a new way to mix and match colors, 
but a glimpse of the wearer's leg in the deal.
Some days our Amanda might be in a sweet mood.
Those days she can choose between the Amanda dress 
in mauve ... or in pink icing.

Other days, she might wish for a more vibrant palette of color.
On those days, she can select either the brightness of red
... or the brilliance of orange.

I've decided not to list all the accessories for this post.
Instead I will credit the jewelry only:
Zuri Rayna-Santa Baby Choker/White Pearls/Crimson/Sterling with Earrings
(worn with Amanda in red)
Zuri Rayna Equestian Cameo Necklace, Earrings & Bracelet
(worn with other three Amanda dresses)

Thanks, Nile and Zuri, for giving me 
beautiful things to blog about! 
You can find both stores on Jewels Isle.
