Night Love

Our heroine sometimes walks the beach at night
searching for that elusive love.
What better dress to wear than
Night Love from FLOWER DREAMS
designer Nile Karas?
Sparkles abound even when the moon
hides behind a shroud of fog.

Zuri Rayna's Mist Elite collection jewels
add that touch of luxury
for our beauty's solitary stroll.

The Thing with Feathers

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all.
-- Emily Dickinson

I'm a romantic at heart,
and I can imagine a heroine
in a gothic novel standing on some shore
in this lovely black and white dress from Lybra
... waiting ... hoping...
for a certain ship to appear on the horizon
that will bring a lover home from distant lands.

And of course, adorning our heroine
with such hope in her eyes would be
Zuri Rayna's gothic black lace and diamonds.

What woman wouldn't feel like a heroine
in this partnering of black and white
from Lybra and Zuri?
Be still my heart!

Please Remember Me

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me
Please remember me
-- from Dante's Prayer

What powerful images can be evoked 
with only a dress, jewelry and setting.

This romantic fantasy dress - Muses' Innocent dress - can be found at

Lady in Red

Have I mentioned how much 
I love shopping at Jewels Isle?
I just discovered this fabulous dress shop --
Merivale Designs.
And of course, the Marteen red dress caught my eye.
Oh, I'm so weak!
The fabric details are intricate and very haute couture,
and tiny roses decorate the neckpiece and top of the bodice.

And oh my! How versatile is
Zuri Rayna's Mist Elite collection
with the color change menu
for metals and gems!
Shown here, my choices of colors
can be changed with a right click.
How convenient and wonderful is that?

Where Have All the Dragons Gone?

There's a wonderful children's book called 
Where Have All the Dragons Gone.
Author Bryan Auxier teaches a lesson about
 the dangers of smoking through 
his creative characters.
The dreamer in me loves the idea that
dragons can exist in some far off fantasy land.
To me, the dragon mistress would be 
dressed in this beautiful gown from !!TWA!! 
(The White Armory) called Majestica Salina Gown set.

To call the powers that will gift her power over her dragon,
this dragon mistress wields a mighty staff.
From The Forge, the Aura Staff is perfect for the task.

And of course, the dragon mistress must sport
the finest jewels and gems in the realm.
Leave it to Zuri Jewelry to come up with the
Mist Elite Necklace, Earrings, Bracelets, and Diadem set. 

I do believe this dragon taming might be within my powers!!

Classical Offerings

What is more romantic than a seaside balcony,
a gorgeous dress, classic jewelry,
and a handsome man?
Three out of four isn't bad!
This beautiful dress is from ..::Dead Dollz::.
and is curiously named Tainted Love.
For what can be tainted about this offering

What better to top off a classy dress than classical jewelry?

Take a visit to see Bodza's fantastic creations!

A great complementing set of jewelry
for this colorful and elegant dress

I'm Seeing Spots!

So here I am again sharing my favorite fashion items from Second Life.
Yes, I retired from blogging and modeling, 
but hey, who knows what life will bring? 
Especially when you're dealing with a love of something: 
like SL fashion!!

For my first offering this time around, 
I've chosen designer Angelkatie Hunter of AK Designs.

This adorable Aina mesh dress with dots sports a multi-ruffled skirt 
and bare shouldered look. 
This whimsical dotted dress is both playful and chic --
perfect for any summer outing.  
The wearer will wow all the men present at any gathering 
and make all the women green with envy.  

A close up of Angelkatie's Aina dress shows those cute ruffles.
So shake those dotted ruffles, ladies, 
but don't spill the lemonade!

AK Designs items can be found both in the marketplace and in world.

To see other AK Designs, drop into the Spring Gala fashion show:
