A Salty Haze

Gizza Joanna II

Permeating the insides of his being, the fresh,

sea-sprayed breeze encircled and caressed him.

Ten thousand miles away, somewhere in time, she felt the same.

As easy as SL dressing can get, this mini is strapless and riveted in lace, the back has a criss cross closure (click here to see it). Available in several solid colors and patterns. The dress is sexy, easy and summer-ish.

It comes in 5 standard sizes plus fitted mesh sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus and Physique.  For the Maitreya Body I use either the Physique or one of the standard sizes but please try it first.

This outfit is available in several colors and allows for different combinations.  Pipe cleaner cut trousers, topped with a cache-coeur top. The top comes with a HUD with options to change the neckline, side ribbon and blouse color.

The fringed shoes for Slink are available in different colors. You can choose a bag to either match or contrast with the rest of the outfit. To my delight, it comes with a high pose level which allowed me to maintain my AO on while still holding the bag in place.

French Christmas Tropical Style

I had a complicated last few days (who hasn´t right?) Nothing that will matter later though. All is solvable but I still got very irritated.

After having dented my car against a column –  20 minutes after having been congratulated on it´s ¨impeccable condition¨ –   it was my duty to attend a funeral yesterday. 

Funerals and hospitals don´t suit me well you see? and I know this, but sometimes I do have to attend one or the other and just hope for the best.

It didn´t work this time, and even though I always found the deceased person adorable and such a joy, let´s just say  his nickname since  youth was … ¨Badper¨ as in Bad Person?  There must have still been some heaviness in there even at 90!

Today, after I mustered the stamina to get out of bed, I began to bake a very tropical version of the French Christmas Yule Log Cake (Bûche de Noël).  Why? because to some people in my family it is not Christmas unless there is a Bûche!  

The original family recipe is magnificent in taste, but every time I make it I feel as if I´m handing a loaded gun to everyone who eats it. Yes, a gun loaded with cholesterol and everything nice like that!  

The American Recipes – and by American I mean the Continent and not the Country – give me the alternative to choose my weapon. Loaded with sugar instead of butter like the French variety, it makes me feel like I have an actual choice between diabetes and clogged arteries. Hey … at least we can choose, right?

Anyway my ¨tropicalization¨ of the recipe called for a mango coulis instead of the French Crème Pâtissière for the filling (ducking now, don´t kill me!)  Mangoes unavailable I was handed passion fruit instead, and … just as expected, it just did not work texture wise.

After such failure  and when I had just decided to go ahead and cook my very un-French Cornish Hens (they taste better the day after. This tradition comes from yet another side of the family) a transformer exploded and I was left with no electricity plus a defective power surge protector for my computer equipment which I now have to replace.

It´s past my midnight now and I´m still waiting for my Cornish Hens to cool just enough to stick ´em in the fridge. My stress however, will the thrown in the rubbish! Will yours follow?

To all of you !
To all of you !

From Slightly Fashionable to all of our lovely, beautiful readers and sponsors:

Thank you for your patience, kind love, understanding and loyalty!

May you all be Blessed!

The ultimate summer gown, against a winterish background inside a wonderful SIM (Let it Snow!). Made in gauzy fabric with delicate eyelets and ruffled tiers. Sleeveless. Slightly transparent throughout the bodice and vaporous towards the floor.

I thought this to be the perfect dress for my current season yet festive enough to be representative of the Holidays.

Ending The Game of Words

Rayne

In the closed up environment within a society that tries to exert control thru the careful manipulation of opinions, more often than not,  some have the courtesy and respect to not pay attention to gossip – televised or not.

When in doubt,  they usually excuse themselves with the protagonist and ask him or her directly if the rumor´s  true or not.  They do this with the greatest caring and respect,  the same that they would like bestowed upon them.  Facing them straight up, they look them in the eye and ask their question directly from a place of kindness and a willingness to understand.  

Not once has anyone taken offense at this in my environment.  On the contrary.  They seem to appreciate the fact that instead of presuming that the gossip is true some actually care enough to ask instead of passing the ball of inaccuracy around to the next one in line.

Style Info:

A free flowing printed paisley silk skirt. Sitting low on the waist it is topped with a suede string halter top adorned with fringe on the slanted triangles.  The fringe increases the bust size, so my recommendation is to wear it with medium to small assets ;).
