Flamenco - Mr. X and Naomi - *Exclusive* Jumo @ Swank

The new exclusive at Swank by Jumo called Naomi is fabulous... although it is available in many colors, I choose Mr. X's favorite color... red or "fiesta" !  Wearing Naomi, I told Mr. X to get ready to dance the  Flamenco whose name is thought to be a derivative of fire or flame and in this gorgeous outfit you are sure to set the room on fire!

Naomi consists of pants with cascading ruffles that ripple and sway as you walk or dance. Sometimes these pants look like a exotic gown.  I love the detailed waistline and opulent belt with it's gold buckle that gives these pants extra dimension and allure.  The cascading ruffle dresses of flamenco dancers is based on a style of dress worn for the Sevillanas at the annual Feria in Seville.

The top is accented by gold chains in an lovely floral pattern of black and red.  The set also comes with drop earrings and a beautifully crafted necklace in an antique gold finish that makes a statement and completes this exotically exciting look.

So Mr. X let's get ready to go to the fiesta that officially begins at midnight...you will find me waiting for you in the pavilion on the far bank of the Guadalquivir River... and please, don't forget my castanets!

Mr. X and Gaelle by Ghostyss @ Swank

I told Mr. X I would meet him on the upper west side of Manhattan... I am striking in black and white called Gaelle by Ghostyss.   The Maitre d' can't take his eyes off me... I am dressed to kill in a white l mini dress with bold black straps and buckles.

I love the sharp geometric appeal of this dress that skims over my curves with a trail of adjustable buckles running down the front of this mini dress. Mr. X tells me this sexy mini gives me oodles of sexy confidence, Mr. X likes that...I ask Mr. X if this dress hints at a dominating mistress or a naughty bedroom babe...

Gaelle is made for classic and slink, TMP and Maitreye bodies and is an exclusive at Swank. There is a 30% discount for all group members.  The main shop offers many additional discounts as well as group gifts.   In the meantime, I whisper in Mr. X's ear... let's ravish the night

Mr. X and the wave... Sascha Designs

A slow sensual Sunday afternoon. I see the ocean and the waves crashing against the shoreline... only to flow away to be born... yet again and return to embrace the shoreline passionately... renewed... hopeful and beautiful in  azure... just like the new gown by Sascha's Designs called Sascha Design's August Full Gown that is compatible with classic avatars and those with omega appliers.

I dream of watching the seagulls hover as we sip cocktails as the sun slides into the horizon in the  splendor of light that radiates.... orange and yellow... and red... deep into the azure sea.... we watch children run along the shore... a playful puppy runs with a ball along the beach... we kiss...

This fabulous gown by Sascha has  four looks... from long formal gown to  a sleek sexy gown... and then a fabulous cocktail dress with feathers that float and flow... and make you want to dance like mad!  I can see it now.... dim lights -- a jasmine scented night... dancing  under the stars.... and then... the kisses...

Sascha Design's August Full Gown also comes with a jeweled tiara... it is silver in a celtic design and studded with pearls.  I matched it with part of a jewelry set -- earrings and necklace by Muse called Dancing Anemones Accessories in aqua... I love the design of the drop earrings and necklace and how it looks with the elegant tiara.

Another cute new release by Sascha's Designs called Mindful Pack #1 is perfect to lounge at an intimate hotel that sits on the Bosphorous Straits -- the moonlight dances on the water.... take my hand... Mr. X -- let's watch the ships come in...their sails so delicate on the night sky.

Mr. X and Brussels - Swank Exclusive

The theme at August's Swank event is "around the world" and Luxe Paris does not disappoint with its' exclusive Brussels Gown. This is a tribute to Belgium, a country that  has made lace for  600 years.  Mr. X loves the long silk charcoal colored maxi skirt that flows as I walk. The skirt provides the perfect contrast with the floral top.

The floral top is sheer delight -- literally with its semi transparent belled sleeves.  It is a filmy, flouncy, top with drop cut out shoulders and  lace like cuffs giving it a dash of feminine sex appeal. Best of all the  Brussels Gown is compatible with standard avatars and Maitreya, Slink and Belleza mesh bodies.

 So Mr. X shall we wait for the ferry to take us to the island ...I see the ferry pulling into the Fair Harbor... huffing and puffing toward the sinking sun that is low on the horizon... to me as the sea breeze whips my hair around... I think to myself, it is perfect cocktail time... let's have a dark and stormy and remember our adventures on the island and dream of new explorations to come.....

Mr. X & the Ouija Board - Aphrodite @Heart Homes & Indian Summer Hunt @ Ghee

The answers to my questions came fast and furious on this mysteriously fun ouija board called Macabre Soul  Ouija Sofa Set by Aphrodite @ Heart Homes.  Mr. X asked if this was a tool of the devil... a harmless game or a glimpse into a super powerful force of nature...  Even the name Ouija is cast in shadows and mystery... it is said that the creators of this first talking board asked the board itself what it wanted to be called and "Ouija" came through...when they asked what it meant... the board replied... "good luck".... let's hope so Mr. X.

The idea is that two or more people place their hands on the planchette, pose a question and watch as the planchette move from letter to letter spelling out answers seemingly of its own accord. This set called Macabre Soul  Ouija Sofa  by Aphrodite at Heart Homes does not disappoint.  Seated on the comfortable couch, pose your questions and toggle the planchette and watch it move around the board, spelling out your answers.

This set is also fully animated with couples and single poses, plus wacky "horror" poses and even a series of activities like sitting around drinking fine cognac and smoking a cigar!

Mr X - What's Your Punk @ Swank?

Punk started after WWII but really took off in the 70s and since then it has gone thru tons of twist, turns and modifications.  In the 70s the norm was long hair, so punk went short, in the 80s the looks became more masculine to ... in the late 80s glam punk burst on the scene... followed by pop punk and hardcore punk just to add a little more spice to the genre.

I love this hipster British Punk look that I found at Swank called Brit Pop by Keresma.  It is so much fun.  Brit Pop offers  different colored tartan skirts and a variety of band tees in the finest punk tradition.   Royal Stewart Tartan was a popular pattern for  British society and wearing tartan of any kind in an unconventional way is yet another way punks gave the middle finger to British society and to highlight their dissatisfaction with the way things were.

And, when it comes to band tees you have a great choice -- from the ultimate hard core rockers - the Sex Pistols to the Rolling Stones, Oasis, Radiohead, the Stone Roses, David Bowie and even the tragic Amy Winehouse. This dress is mesh and comes in 5 standard easy to wear sizes.

Mr. X and Petunia @ Swank [Modern Couture] & Third Eye

I told Mr. X that I find great solace in the garden... not just any garden... one that melts seamlessly into  the lush surrounding landscape -- an informal garden --- formal in its structure, cared for with joyful plantings created with the eye of an artist.... simply beautiful like this new exclusive gown offered by Modern Designs @ Swank called Petunia. I am wearing it in pink.

Petunia's originate in South America and are from the same family that includes tomatoes, chili peppers and tobacco!  The flower symbolizes anger and resentment especially when they are presented by someone with whom you have recently had a disagreement. They can also symbolize your desire to spend time with someone because you find their company soothing and peaceful.
Whatever petunia's mean to you this gown embellished by this lavish flower in full bloom is sure to cause a rise in blood pressure wherever you go...on another note, according to the urban dictionary... a "petunia" connotates a beauty of great proportions... and that is exactly what this dress does!

I am also featuring a wonderful mesh fountain, another exclusive @ Swank called Eternal Steps Fountain by Third Eye.  This fountain is only 23 prims and comes with a color changing hud that allows you to change the color of the lights of this gorgeously detailed fountain.

Mr. X and "string theory" -Prism Nala by Journey @ Swank!

 Pythagoras could be called the first known string theorist. Pythagoras, an excellent lyre player, figured out the first known string physics -- the harmonic relationship. He realized that vibrating lyre strings of equal tensions but different lengths would produce harmonious notes (i.e. middle C and high C) if the ratio of the lengths of the two strings were a whole number.  Pythagoras discovered this by looking and listening. Mr. X discovered this new dress @ swank called Prism Nala by Journey simply by looking!

Mr. X told me that the front of this Prism Nala reminds him of "string theory" with its artful web of "string" that evocatively floats down the front of this cute mini dress that is an exclusive  at this month's "Swank" event!  This mini also comes with a handy color changing hud featuring four colors called "tropical nights" -- I like the sound of that!   So Mr. X it has been a long night of dancing and I am up for a cuddle in this comfy chair... care to join me and discuss....

Mr. X and the tale of the dragon - *new* BamPu Legacies and TWA Guardians of Mirkwood

Today we went in search of the dragon... Mr. X and I wandered through the mists of a magical forest the path was rough, strewn with rocks and tree branches...we knew it would be nightfall soon and hoped to meet the hermit of the ruins... that the oracle told us would guide us on our way.

The ruins were set amid the most whimsical trees whose leaves and branches curl and sway in a fanciful way.  Their scent is most mysterious and makes you want to sit beneath their majestic branches and fall into a deep enchanted sleep...Mr. X thinks fairies have made them and distilled a bit of fairy dust on their leaves..... I think he is right.   Which way to we turn I asked the guardian... who was holding the most beautiful golden scrolls that gleamed in the night.

I know what you seek said this mighty sentinel...what I want to know is why... we seek what the dragon holds... it is the gift of life... this is what the oracle told us... we seek the dragon with the iridescent blue wings... he told us to look for the broken wagon wheel... amid the mouldering ruins.

At last we found the dragon... the sentinel with his golden scrolls of knowledge helped us to find the precious egg that the dragon is guarding... the question remains if he will give it to the mistwalkers of Mirkwood...

Mr. X & the Joy of Feathers.... NSP @ Swank....

Sometimes I am so old school that I am vintage... think 1920s vintage.  Mr. X and I think there is something so romantically elegant about vintage clothing  because it harkens back to the gilded age of the Great Gatsby. NSP, has a fabulous *new* 1920s  vintage dress-- Peony Vintage Feather  Macabre pkd. in red, black, grey and white that is an exclusive @ Swank through August 25.

In addition to coming in many other color packages with a hud, the exclusive Peony Vintage Feather dress with its feather hemline by NSP is  so well done and so much fun to wear... it tickles my fancy... and Mr. X's as well !  This  dress also comes with a feather fan perfect to help you keep your  cool  when blushing  from so many compliments. The Fan, flower and dress have a six color  changing hud and is made for classic and mesh bodies.

Mr. X adores the jeweled headband that is punctuated by  a feather spray and flowers -so vintage and just perfect to set the look.  As a matter of  fact, I just got a  message from Mr. X that  suggested we step out tonight... and go dancing... in my mind's eye, I see his smile... it is one of eternal assurance... that all will be well... eventually.

Mr. X and *ISA D'ORABLE* - Africa and Indira @ Aug. Swank

I remember the murky morning  when the dreaded Hyksos reached my beloved Kemit now known as Egypt and nearly destroyed it.  The Hyksos did bring some good things to Egypt... horses, the art of the chariot and new musical instruments... how I loved listening to the sound of the lute deep into the night as the fires burned low... and the darkness of the sky fell like 100,000 images of Horus...

In the end, there was a peaceful accord -- memories were immortalized on tomb walls in the Valley of the Kings, Queens and Nobles... and also  in the texture of this new summer maxi dress by *ISA D'ORABLE* called Africa that is an exclusive at  Swank.

Africa comes with a beautiful collar necklace and earrings in an artful swirl like mosaic of matching colors that is perfect for a princess .... and  a set that will match with so many things. Africa is made  for classic, slink, maitreya and belleza bodies.  I wear Slink Physique.

If you are feeling a bit "curry masala" and ethnic  *ISA D'ORABLE*  is also offering an exclusive Sari in blue called Indira Bleu  - The silken texture is lush and lovely.  Indira Bleu is made for classic and mesh avatars and comes with a gorgeous necklace, shawl, upper arm bracelet and  belly chain.
