Nautical Roller Girl

Hello,

Nautical 2

Don’t tell me you’ve missed it, nautical is the trend this summer. Well to me, it could work just for any summer. It is one of those timeless styles. You can play it very classical, elegant to leave for a journey on a yacht or more girly in a look somewhere between a roller girl and a sailor.

Nautical

To help me with the roller girl side, the very short shorts from The Secret Store works beautifully, helped by a scarf and a top from Emery. Add the Maitreya Moxie winter version with high tights to give that sweet young girl touch. As I don’t like it too girly, I have chosen this new hairstyle from Shag, a sexy and a bit savage updo which was pre-released for Project Themeory this last week-end.

Umbrella is the Trend!

It’s all Maylee’s fault!

Silver Snowflake Umbrella

Some times ago, I saw an awesome picture from Maylee’s Oh on Flickr. She was teasing us with a new release of The Secret Store for the Happy Holidays hunt. Being the asshole i can be, I immediately bugged her, saying she was mean to tease us with such a great picture, that it was not humanly possible to wait for several days until the 10th December and the start of the hunt and so on. She was also wearing the fabulous coat when i TPed over to her shop, looking for something else, so i’ve threatened her to drool all over her coat for teasing us with it. That’s when she made me feel bad for bugging her for the fun as she gave me the said coat… but that’s how Maylee is, she is just great. I don’t know her for long but each time i’ve had had the chance to talk to her, it was great fun and i’ve been amazed to see how such a nice and funny girl she can be.

That is for the person, … now what about her creations? They are just the same! Original, fun, made with passion and care for quality. Maylee Oh’s The Secret Store is becoming one of those rising brand that you cannot avoid, that you don’t want to avoid! Seriously, orginal, beautiful clothes with textures and sculpties created by the designer at affordable prices, who would want to skip that? Fayne Khandr has written an article about Maylee in the 42nd release of Second Style Magazine. While reading the article, all i could do was nod and smile, totally agreeing, as Fayne was depicting with her talented pen the Maylee I know.

But this is not the end of the story. 2 days ago, Maylee shared wonderful pictures on her blog. She was using that totally awesome umbrella. As I was teasing her again about stealing the umbrella from her, she started to look for the landmark and finaly offered to TP me to the store while i was finishing my blog post. Not asif she had no creation work on her own… Yes, Maylee is THAT nice. After some (a lot) of chat and fun, we both agreed on starting a new trend! WEAR UMBRELLAS ! So now, please, be kind, join the umbrella club!

The Looking Glass

Hello,

At the Looking glass

Today’s attempt at taking snapshots brought me to The Looking Glass. I told myself that if I had to crash, I might aswell do it in a good looking place. Designed by Markus Inkpen, the same creator as the famous No Sound sim, and Sharni Azalee, that fabulous sim welcomes you to discover fantasy places going from church ruins to old stables or even wonderland.

The Looking Glass

I’ve chosen to take the pictures in the village. Among all the wonders you will see there, what caught my attention was that parrot. Maybe the fact it is called Muad’Dib has something to do with it… (Muad’Dib being the Fremen name of Paul Atreides in Dune from Frank Herbert. It is my favorite book and one of the reasons why my blog is named like that, though the official excuse i’ve found was dunes was reminding of the curves of a feminine body).

Just to tell you a few more words about my snapshots adventures lately. Today, i’ve been able to take 10 pictures! Yeah! BUT… for some unknow reason, i’ve crashed at the 11th. Since then, though I was using Kirsten’s Viewer for the pics, I am unable to log back in SL with Snowstorm which crashes immediately. Go figure…
