Mr. X and the Red Queen - irrISIStible @ Swank

The Red Queen... of Hearts.... you know her...and you know where to find her... “In a Wonderland they lie, Dreaming as the days go by, Dreaming as the summers die: Ever drifting down the stream- Lingering in the golden gleam- Life, what is it but a dream?” 


'To the Looking-Glass world it was Alice that said

"I've a sceptre in hand, I've a crown on my head.

Let the Looking-Glass creatures, whatever they be
Come and dine with the Red Queen, the White Queen, and me!"'



Then fill up the glasses as quick as you can,
And sprinkle the table with buttons and bran:
Put cats in the coffee, and mice in the tea
And welcome Queen Alice with thirty-times-three!'



'"O Looking-Glass creatures," quoth Alice, "draw near!

'Tis an honour to see me, a favour to hear:
'Tis a privilege high to have dinner and tea
Along with the Red Queen, the White Queen, and me!"'





'Then fill up the glasses with treacle and ink,

Or anything else that is pleasant to drink:
Mix sand with the cider, and wool with the wine
And welcome Queen Alice with ninety-times-nine!'

Mr. X and Bo Peep - *New* Sascha's Designs and Jumo Hair

When I think of a sweater dress I think of cozy and sexy at the same time... Mr. X loves the soft texture of cashmere under his fingertips...so when I saw Bo Peep by Sascha's Designs, a gorgeous sweater dress, I knew I had to have it.


Bo Peep has finely textured cables in the sweater and comes with  a peek a boo midriff crop top and a straight A-Line skirt.  Bo Peep is made for classic bodies in 5 sizes and comes with alphas. I was able to tweak my Maitreya Mesh body to wear this chic classic design perfectly.

Bo Peep comes in six pastel colors from white, pink and beige to blue, mauve and grey.  I love the fact that is comes with a color changing hud for the scarf.  Although I love all the colors this dress comes in, I was in a white mood today and mixed it with the beige scarf which is really more of a nice warm cream color.

Mr. X has invited me to his new chalet high in the mountains where the air is scented with pine and your breath crystalizes on the cold winter air....up here the stars seem brighter on the dark black winter sky... we are waiting for the Northern Lights to guide us home....that resplendent light show -- mother nature's fireworks...

Mr. X and Colette - *NEW* Jumo

Pick up the phone Mr. X and say something sweet to me... I am waiting... for you at a beautiful ballroom with my dancing shoes on! Please please tell me that you will join me !!  I am in the dancing mood because of the new gown called Colette created by Jumo... it is spectacular !  She had outdone herself this time!


Colette is made for slink, belleza and standard size bodies. I am wearing it with my Lara Maitreya body without any trouble...thank god for alpha's.  This svelte gown also has a very sexy bare back... that adds to its allure.

Colette comes with an amazing hud... it offers four different patterns in a  basic background color palette of peach, pink, purple, blue and yellow.  All counted, Colette has 20 different color choices for each of the four patterns.  My favorite is the bird pattern... it is just gorgeous.



Two of the patterns are more abstract and offer an artful blend of colors. There are two patterns that are more abstract; one reminds me of sequins and the one shown below is an artful abstract that reminds me of the great paintings by abstract expressionists of the mid 20th century.


The fourth pattern has an oriental vibe to it and is just lovely.  Each of the four color options is prettier than the next.  This is the "blue" version.

Colette's hud isn't done yet with its offerings as you can also choose to make this gown a solid color from black to red, teal to yellow and much more as there are a total of ten solid color offerings.  Colette also comes with two earrings... one is smaller than the other and creates a dramatic effect.

Mr. X and Lily of Hollowdell - *NEW* !!SMD!! /White Armory and Emo-tions

Mr. X... tell me how all this, and love too, will ruin us or it will give us joy...I am a feather in the wind. To me you feel like a promise, an escape, a coming home....Tell me about the dream where we bath in an azure sea and slowly dress in soft silk red and gold and dance on a soft silken carpet before we fall into each other's arms and into a dreamless sleep.... do you remember?


You and I Mr. X we are not like a tree where roots have to end somewhere, we are like a tremulous melody that wavers on the wind... floating to the next adventure... as we wend our way through the currents of life... I  think of  you as a temple... with strong walls and sharp angles like your wit.  Think of me when you smell sandalwood incense at midnight and know I am near.


I love this new gown by !!SMD!! that reminds me of a combination of gown and sari with its wide silk trim skirt and tiered  artfully belted overskirt and short paisley patterned vest that reminds me of the wood block prints of Moghul India... wearing Lily of Hollowdell  you are fit for a Sultan! Lily of Hollowdell  is compatible with mesh bodies, I am wearing my Maitreya Lara body with it!


I have paired Lily of Hollowdell  with the fabulous new hair by Emo-tions called Stella.  I love the long braid that is embellished with leather and the soft  tendrils that wisp around my face.  The hair is made for busty or not busty avatars so you don't have to go through tons of adjustments!  Stella comes with special appliers for Catwa and Lelutka (worn) mesh heads as well as appliers for classic heads. Many color hud options are available. I think that Stella is really great for many types of looks in particular, medieval and roleplay.

The Vision ...Mr X - Virtual Diva Couture, Park Place & Circa @ Swank + Emo-tions & Jumo

Recently, I bought the cutest house to play in... it has been Years since  I bought a house... I haven't gotten rid of my old and favorite house (and never will)... it is far too beautiful and well done by my dear friend Satir DeCuir. (https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Arab-Moroccan-Summer-Palace/318505) for the curious. For those really curious, feel free to visit my sim to see it and the pool... you won't be sorry!  My new house is more of a romantic cottage... a wonderful place to spend time sorting inventory and unwinding... and dreaming of Mr. X.  The new house is by Pamela Galli.


I found a black classic leather chaise with ao's for her, him and couples at Swank by Park Place along with a white pine accent table with country french styled legs.  I placed a SpitzMiller gourd shaped red lamp on it. The lamp casts a soft  "light" --can't you picture yourself curled up with a good book (yes the paper kind) and almost nodding off for a snooze at dusk?  Park place also offers a selection of low prim plants, matching rugs and a lovely heart wall hanging that is perfect for February. This also comes with a shag diamond black and grey matching area rug.  The table is also available in walnut.

A second set (Kiss Me) to be found @ Swank by [Circa] includes a modernist set of couches shaped like giant lips in red and black that come loaded with ao's for couples and singles as well as "kissing benches" and a modernist bombay shaped table with an oriental floral arrangement, a book and vase. The set is completed with a series of abstract patterned red and black rugs, a choice of red and black curtains and a trendy wall sculpture... "to the moon and back"... in red and silver that helps to meld all the colors of this set together.


I love the cute goth influenced black velvet dress I found at Swank called Vision by Virtual Diva Couture.  The off the shoulder look and the wide belt at the waistline with it's distinctive cross makes Vision stylishly dark! The dress is made for mesh bodies.


Vision comes with gorgeous  triangular shaped beaded drop earrings in onyx, pearl and turquoise. I couldn't resist wearing the new Thunderbird Necklace called Taipa by Emo-tions (there are other pieces that come with it as well).  I love the story of the Thunderbird, a Native American legend that has been recorded for centuries. The name Thunderbird comes from the common belief that the beating of its powerful wings causes thunder and stirs the  wind.

Mr. X and L Amore Snow - Virtual Diva Couture @ Swank & Jumo

This morning I told Mr. X that Valentine's Day should be celebrated every day of the year... not just one day. Of course I am a "romantic" -- and, what is wrong with that.  I live by the saying in a world full of temporary things... I am a perpetual feeling.  And, I am feeling romantic today and found a gorgeous romantic gown in white (I love white gowns) at this month's Swank by Virtual Diva Couture called L Amore Snow


L Amore Snow is glorious and is made for classic bodies... it also comes with a maitreya  hud that I used on my mesh body... whatever type of body you have classic or mesh this gown is easy to wear.  I love the romantic rose collar and the floating silk cape with it's rose border that float in the winter breeze.


L Amore Snow will make you feel like a fairytale princess... the gown itself is lovely in silk with a delicate floral pattern.  It is a big formal gown... Mr. X likes that and so do I... you will float on the dance floor without a doubt


L Amore Snow also comes with a lavish floral headpiece that really crowns this look. I have paired this gown with new hair by Jumo called Lindsay and the new fabulous lipstick by Jumo for catwa and lelutka mesh heads and also for classic avatars called Bronx.  This lipstick is so realistically kissable... trust me on that !

Mr. X and Melanie *new* Wicca's Wardrobe and Emo-tions

The tartan, a traditional woollen fabric woven in checkered or striped (plaid) patterns, is a symbol of Scotland’s highland heritage and, even if you are not Scottish and want to celebrate "National" Tartan Day (marking the signing of Scotland’s declaration of independence, circa 1320) then check out the cute new strappy dress by Wicca's Wardrobe called Melanie@ On9 Feb. I have paired it with Lenka by Emo-tions also an exclusive @ On9
Best of all, tartan is the stand out motif of the season so if you want to add a Scottish touch to your wardrobe and be on the cutting edge of fashion then this mini with its cute straps is a must have.  And these tartans come in some of the hottest spring colors to date: green, yellow and orange.  There is also a classic "dark" tartan in black and grey.

Melanie also comes in a design with strawberries or hearts giving a nod to a more geometric pattern. Whatever you choose the dresses have the sharp belting around the waistline and the cute leather collar that pulls it all together. This dress is made for all mesh bodies. I have paired Melanie with the new hair from Emo-tions called Lenka -- It is a fashionable braided long bob cut that can be worn so many ways. It also comes with appliers for regular and mesh lelutka and catwa mesh heads.

Mr. X and the mystery of Sanguine - Posh Pixels

A rose garden Mr. X... really?  I never promised you that --- in a nutshell... I am "Sanguine" like this luscious gown by Posh Pixels called "Sanguine"  Mr. X informed me that sanguines find social interactions with people both familiar and  unfamiliar  invigorating.... I think he is trying to tell me that I am a "talker" more than a listener... ha!  "Oh no darling Sita he says to me... you are bubbly and fun loving- absolutely charismatic and a little mysterious!"   Just like this gown by Posh Pixels that is made for classic mesh bodies in all sizes but is easy to wear with mesh bodies and mesh heads too.

There are so many things that I love about  Sanguine by Posh Pixels.    First off, I love the bold sculpted wave like silhouette of the lower skirt  that has a tone on tone color of claret wine ... so rich and decadent... The skirt is further embellished with a veil of butterflies  that only the Red Queen can command... you can feel the power of mystery when you wear Sanguine.  I like that !


The sheath  top of this gown is intricately and subtly patterned adding just the right touch.  It is also embellished with a beautiful butterfly ruffle that languidly drapes  down the center of the gown... and draws the eye... Mr. X loves that. I love the detail of the drop sleeves with their layer of lace and the netting on the cuffs.  The eye for detail is amazing. The matching red choker is elegant and has a magical vial.. just waiting... for orders from the Red Queen of the Fairies.


For me, the BEST part of this amazing gown is the headdress, mask and wings.... oh... how those wings glimmer  like a dark daughter's wings should... and the mask of mystery... it is so beautifully made... rimmed with gold (it comes with an easy re size so no worries there)... it is  perfect for a masquerade ball, gothic role play... or for those that dare to wear it with or without the wings...anywhere!  And, thank you Posh Pixels for including the hair... it is perfect and sets off the mask and wings beautifully... and will save everyone HOURS of trying to find the right hair....!!!

Mr. X and Rosa - NEW Ghee and New Emo-tions

Women learn to flirt at a certain age... and some of us never stop ... flirting!  As we get older-- flirting only gets better... more creative... sensual but never overt.


Mr. X tells me I am a terrible flirt with him... the way I touch him when I speak to him.. the inflection in my voice... the way I look at  him and the way I look.  And, thanks to Ghee, I have found the new Rosa dress and Pointy Thigh  hi boots -- a new spring exclusive.  I also found a  new exclusive hair by Emo-tions called  Lynette that is uber cute!
Rosa by Ghee is made for regular mesh bodies as well as for Slink, Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Lara (worn), physique and venus.  It comes in  ten gorgeous shades from pale pink to orange, peach black and green shades -- all of which are trending for the spring season color tones. Rosa has a lovely floral pattern that adds elegance to the graceful drape of this look. This asymmetrical dress that floats  seamlessly and  gracefully  is softly romantic  and adds an element of  coquettishness... Mr. X likes that!


Matching  thigh high spike heeled boots are sold separately and match Rosa and they really complete the look and are a must have.  The boots are made for slink and maitreya (worn) mesh high feet.  The hud that is included with the boots matches each color of  Rosa.


I have paired Rosa with the new hair by  Emo-tions called Lynette that is an exclusive at Hairology through the 28th. This is an updated classic tapered bob that is all the rage.  I love the multi dimensional tones in the hair and the fact that hair bases are made for catwa and letuka (worn) mesh heads as well as hair bases for classic avatars. A tapered short bob is always sexy and versatile... and yes, really in style.

Posh Pixels @ My Bloody Valentine @ Scala and Emo-tions Hair @ We Love Role Play

 I am cold and alone in the shadows... there is nothing that can lift my soul... I am not sure where this despair comes from... it feels as though I have a knife in my chest... And, in fact, I do ! This is an exclusive gown  called  Sweeny My Bloody Valentine by Posh Pixels that is an exclusive @ Scala's my Bloody Valentine that ends Feb. 17.

Sweeny My Bloody Valentine  is a an updated gothic Victorian styled sleeveless gown in black and red with a sweetheart neckline. It has an elegant layered  beehive bustle embellished with black lace that adds Victorian flair -- the knife and rose tied with a black ribbon add drama.

The purpose historically of the crinoline was to fashion the illusion of a small waist and to create an artificial hourglass silhouette by accentuating the hips.  This gown is made for fitted standard mesh, slink and maitreya (worn) bodies.



Sweeney also comes with a elegantly wrought crown of gold and rubies  embellished with roses.  I have combined it with new exclusive hair by Emo-tions called Helga that is at We Love Roleplay and is 30% off.  It has a Grecian vibe and is beautifully braided with bangs that attach. It is really easy to resize and comes with appliers for classic, Catwa, Lelutka (worn) and omega systems Y mesh heads

Mr. X and the Dark Bride by Jumo @ Bloody Valentine Bride @ Scala

Valentine's Day has been  a favorite date to get married... especially for hopeless romantics.  Now in its second year, Scala has organized the  My Bloody Valentine event  runs through Feb. 17.  Jumo is a sponsor and has created a gown called Dark Bride  and it comes in two versions that is included in one package both versions are perfect for a "dark wedding"!


Dark Bride is made for mesh bodies and comes in five sizes.  The flexi prims add  touch of flowing elegance that will make you float down the aisle!  The texture of  this gown is intricate and beautiful and is embellished with a swirling floral print and birds giving it a sorta dark asian vibe.  The first version is called  Cabernet.
The second version of Dark Bride is called "bloody" -- it is embellished with blood splatters all over the gown... it is perfect for vampires --- or those that love the darker side of Goth.

Dark Bride also comes with a long red veil, elegant floral headpiece that adds just a touch of light and drop pearl earrings.  I told Mr. X when wearing this that my kisses are as icy as  a glacier and that my caresses are like a snake gliding through the rough brush ready to strike and draw "blood".

Mr. X and Eleanor -Aleutia and Luminesse @ Swank

Dreaming of a long ramble around a quaint seaside town... salt water taffy and long walks on a boardwalk weathered by the elements and time... and the many feet that have walked along the aged planks.  I found the most sensational outfit at Swank by Aleutia called Eleanor.  It comes made for mesh bodies and for maitreya bodies -- I am wearing my Lara Maitreya and have not had to make ONE adjustment - Yay!

 I am in love with the slit in the sleeves of the square neckline.  Best of all the sleeves have a semi transparent pattern that mirrors the pattern in the mini skirt... Eleanor is so well made. There is a hud for the top where you can change the blouse and sleeves separately -- there are 30 colors to choose from and all the new trending colors for the season.


In my blog, I tend to favor the fire colors, warm reds, passionate golds, vibrant orange -- but, I also like blue, ok Mr. X likes blue...and the blue pattern in Eleanor's skirt is beautiful... it reminds me of a turbulent ocean with its swirling pattern.  Eleanor has six different skirt patterns to choose from.... I am just showing three, all are fabulous.  One thing I really like about Eleanor is that it is damn sexy from the back... with its wide open back and flowing sleeves.... it is pure romance!


I have paired Aleutia's Eleanor with another find from Swank, the earring and necklace set by Luminesse  called Lum Yeshia Raelee.  I love the heart shapes in the drop earrings made of the finest citrine and the lovely gold necklace made of citrine and topaz with it's artful arabesque shape
