Dis-moi, Josephine

Standard
Dis-moi, Josephine

Blue skies smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies do I see
Bluebirds singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds all day long…

She’s all feathers and luscious pearls, the most exotic midnight glam. Behind her dazzling smile, a dangerous secret is hidden by a song. Her voice enchants everyone in the room, a true spell cast by her playful eyes. She dances all their fantasies away, swiping their careless confidences away, while they’re too entranced to know that they’re the enemy.

Fabulous like no other, the Black Pearl plays a dangerous game. Today she fascinates the troops clad in her magnificent Miss Fisher Gown, designed by the amazing Silvan Moon Designs for the upcoming round of the Vintage Fair (June 8th to 25th). The fabric is super luxurious and the rigging feels incredibly authentic. It will be available in 6 colors.

Adored by a legion of admirers, the Creole goddess wears the glorious Charlotte pearls collection by Zuri Jewelry, with matching ring and bracelet. The Elite menu allows my to choose between several combinations of gems, metals, and pearls for a unique look.

The music continues at the Twisted Summer RFL Sale, named Sockdolanger and themed after the Roaring 20’s. Nothing more fitting for the Black Venus than the fabulous Josephine Baker headpiece by Sweet Revolutions, and the Bento Satin Gloves by Maraschino (formerly Anachron). The event runs until June 30th.

The silence seems unnatural after the roaring energy of the party. Nothing but the swish of her garments and the subtle rustle of her magical pen, scratching stolen secrets between the lines of her music sheets.

Sleepy time gal
When all your dancin’ is through
Sleepy time gal
I’ll find a cottage for you…

Days when you used to love me

Standard
Days when you used to love me

Over and over I keep going over the world we knew
Once when you walked beside me
That inconceivable, that unbelievable world we knew
When we two were in love

I still remember that night, as vivid in my eyes as it was then… the sound of your voice, your laughter, the sparks in your eyes, and that unforgettable, intense cherry-red smile. I was under the spell of your charming little freckles, and the sweet maple tone of your skin…

This is a very special edition of the brand new Naomy skin, the latest creation by 7 Deadly S{k}ins exclusively for the Skin Fair. This beauty was designed for LAQ heads, and even though you can wear it on any Omega-friendly head, I simply had to try it on my lovely LAQ Neve. I chose the new skin tone, Maple, with adorable freckles. The cherry-red lipstick is one of my favorites from 7DS, Clarity (at main store).

And every bright neon sign turned into stars
And the sun and the moon seemed to be ours…

The colors on this old photo have long since faded… perhaps by looking at it so much over the time, or perhaps because memories are also fading slowly. A sentence you said, the taste of bourbon on your lips, and that sensual gown, tight on your figure…

This is the luxurious “Spring in Paris” bridal gown, created by the talented dream team Silvan Moon exclusively for The Trunk Show, open until March 18th. It has an incredible timeless beauty, vintage air in the exquisite texture and the pearls on the chest. It’s fitted for classic and mesh bodies, and you can find it in several lovely soft pastel tones.

Each road that we took turned into gold
But the dream was too much for you to hold…

My smile still stays on

Standard
My smile still stays on

The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My make-up may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

It’s the art of make-believe. Let me disguise reality under a thick layer of virtual happiness, and drown every thought with the immortal sweetness of chocolate. Ah, let me live like this forever, and never wake up.

This lovely cart of sugary comfort is the latest creation by The Roawenwood, which you can find exclusively at Draftsman – an SL architectural event. It’s impossible to look at those delicious pastries without craving for them.

The event runs until February 9th, and there you can find this refreshment cart, and also these beautiful vintage parlor chairs in two different colors: teal or rose.

I love the versatility of this furniture. You can use them to decorate a Victorian parlor, a modern home, or anything else your imagination calls for. The chairs come with a few smooth animations for male and female avatars.

I’m also showing a little teaser of LaZe’s new creation, the vanity mirror/dresser I’m leaning on. I try practicing my smiles, but alas, Second Life mirrors never smile back. Show must go on.

I guess I’m learning, I must be warmer now
I’ll soon be turning, round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I’m aching to be free
The show must go on.
