Here I am at home in my new apartment, enjoying the sunset and listening to a concert on SCPR. (That’s Second Life Public Radio, incidentally.) It took a while to decorate this living room, and I dipped into the backstock of my store for the art hanging on the walls — as well as a little private stock; see that rather familiar artwork for a book cover there past the dining set? But it was worth it; I even had the landlord say “Wow!” when she stopped in to set up my door locks.
The focal point of the room is probably this huge redwood and slate fireplace in the living area, which gives me a cheery blaze as the days slide into winter. And there’s a surprise or two as well; though the room is mostly Art Deco, one of my favorite styles, visitors who come in the front door may expect at first to be seeing something a little more modern than that. I have two of my original “Metallic Princesses” self-portraits hanging in the entry vestibule. (You can see one hanging over my shoulder there as I meditate by the fire.)
The gown I’m wearing is a hunt goodie I picked up from Sascha’s Designs a month or so back at a discounted price. The kicker for getting this green version of Malicious was that you had to hunt through the entire first floor looking for the individual pieces, assisted by clues provided by Sascha’s assistant. And baby, it was a hunt indeed, looking for those tiny little boxes. But I think you’ll agree that this luscious gown’s fabric and lay are worth the work. It’s done in what I’d call a metallic green foil or lamé print, judging by the gleam off the bodice here. Spaghetti straps go around your neck in a halter, but I think you can leave them off as they’re a separate part of the dress.
Finesmith’s Alexandra suite came out about the same time, and I paired this exceptionally large set of earrings, necklace, bracelet and ring with the dress. I’m still trying to make up my mind if this was a good choice, or if I should have gone with something more conservative. Any opinions out there? I kept the makeup light this time in exchange, relying on my own “natural” lip color, and just a touch of eyeshadow.
