One Little Hour   Leave a comment

I am that woman who would wait for dawn,
Nor slept while the slow moon rode into sight;

Who, fighting weariness, gazed full upon
The starry circle drawn around the night.

I saw the Milky Way fade like a cloud,
And, drowsy-lidded, watched the distance grow
Between me and the Pleiades, nor bowed
To heavy hands of sleep upon my brow.

Then, when night grew more stilly palpitate
Listening for the faint birth-cry of morn,
And the cock crew, I, at the very gate,
Fell into cloddish slumber, all out-worn.

Even as I slept, soft as a look or sigh,
The Dawn with Love beside her passed me by.

Orlando

Most emphatically not recommended! (At least not on a real locomotive with the steam up.)

“I’m sick to death of this particular self. I want another.”

Virginia Woolf, Orlando

It’s Fifty Linden Friday, and I had to shoot this fast if anyone wanted a chance to get to the stores and pick up the goodies for the intended price. (Although some stores do sometimes leave a package out for the whole weekend. Your mileage may vary.) But I think that, for once, I did a pretty good job photographing here. (Jem really seems to have a touch, in my opinion, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.)

Orlando is a one-shoulder spaghetti-strap slip dress from Stories & Co., and the deal is two colors, the “oil” I’m wearing, or a paler holo. Either way, the simple satin slip is delicious on all the virtual skin. It also leaves the left leg mostly visible to the him … even nicer!

Along with Orlando, you can go to Livalle and get the mid-heel Danica pumps, with HUD-driven color change, for L$ 50. They make a nice, simple compliment to a nice, simple dress.

And, to finish the simple theme, single pearl drops from Cae, also at L$ 50.

As I said above, don’t despair if you don’t make it before midnight SLT. Go ahead and check whenever you’re able to. If you’re lucky, the vendors won’t be reset yet. If you’re not lucky, a purchase at the full price will still reward for these goodies!

“By the truth we are undone. Life is a dream. ‘Tis the waking that kills us. He who robs us of our dreams robs us of our life.”

Virginia Woolf, Orlando

Hey, Daddy!

Hey, listen to my story ’bout a gal named Daisy Mae
Lazy Daisy Mae
Her disposition is rather sweet and charming
At times alarming, so they say
She has a man who’s tall dark handsome, large and strong
To whom she used to sing this song

Hey, Daddy
I want a diamond ring
Bracelets and everything
Daddy, you oughta get the best for me

Hey, Daddy, gee
Don’t I look great in sables?
Clothes with Paris labels?
Daddy, you oughta get the best for me

Fashion Review — Jordanna Magic, WickedKisses (updated)

I was pleased to get my first request for a fashion review the other day from Jordanna Magic, owner of WickedKisses.  Jordanna is starting up her business, and she offered me a few things to take a look at.  (There was a set of sex straps also in the package that I don’t touch on here; but you should find them in Jordanna’s store.)

1.  First is a babydoll with flowered bodice and hem.  This is perhaps my favorite out of the batch; I like the patterning of the bodice and the crossover strap.  The skirt is flexiprims, and there might be a little problem with show-through that I noted in the back, but some adjustment should solve that quickly.

2.  This bikini is based on the babydoll, and it’s daring ; not for the top, which is a variation on the top for the dress, but because of the thong brief.  When I put this on, I was surprised.  But it wears well, and isn’t too bad to look at.  I don’t have a decent picture of the brief — the poses I chose didn’t give me a look at the front of my hips.  It’s a good look, though.

3 and 4.  WickedKisses also does skins, and Jordanna’s offering to me was Raina, in what she described as “light tan w/ heavy makeup.”  I’m not so sure about the tan here; it’s not as pale as some Asian or goth skins I’ve seen, which are almost grey to milk white.  But the tan is very light, as you can see if you compare it with my “normal” GemCorp skin.  For those looking for just a touch of tan, this might be your ticket.

I’ve visited Jordanna’s store, and she’s basically starting out, so contents at any given time may vary.  I’d say it’s worth a drop-in to see what’s available.  The stock may have changed since I was in there, and one side (plain vs. sex wear) may be emphasized instead of the other.  Good beginnings for a first collection!

Other items in this article:

  • Shoes:  Armidi Dhali Bow platforms (silver)
  • Gold earrings:  Anchor by yoona Mayo (available only on OnRez, from the looks)
  • Green paisley bikini by Relika
  • Shape:  Alady Jane Seymour
  • Skin and hair (normal):  GemCorp Wendy

You can see four additional photos of the bikini at my Flickr photo stream.
