Mr. X and the Moon Princess -New Release by Zed Sensations

I asked Mr. X to tell me a bedtime story.... An old bamboo cutter and his wife had lived a long, happy life together. Their only regret was that they had never been able to have a child. One day, the bamboo cutter finds a beautiful baby girl in the stump of a bamboo. He takes her home and he and his wife brings her up as their own daughter, naming her Kaguya-hime or the Shining Princess. 

The baby grows up to be a beautiful girl, so beautiful that lords and princes from across the land come to seek her hand. The bamboo cutter built a special house for her surrounded by a tall fence to protect her, but the men did not stop coming, trying to catch a glimpse of her beauty. They came with gifts and treasures for her, trying to win her heart. But she shows interest in none of them. 

The old couple tried to talk to her, to convince her to accept one of these fine young men, to no avail. One day, she tells them that she is not of this world, and the time has come for her to go back to her own people. The old man (her father) is very angry and hires an army to surround the house to prevent her from escaping. But on the appointed night, when the moon is full, a mysterious light appears that puts all the soldiers to sleep. A procession comes from the moon, and the princess slowly rises with them to the sky. 

This gorgeous gown by Zed Sensations called Lotus Geisha also comes with appliers for Eve and omega appliers plus a body light. I love the silk cranes and the lavish red and pink flowers on this gown. There are authentic Lotus Geisha shoes and socks sold separately that also come with Eve and TMP appliers.

Neon & Mr. X - Ghee @ FAD

Neon... is this month's theme at FAD.  Neon has a fascinating history as a recurring fashion trend.  It was discovered in London in 1898 - the gases from the atmosphere were boiled producing neon.

I told Mr. X when I think of neon I think of Vegas with its huge, gaudy signs that attracted gamblers, dancers and mobsters to the strip. Today, there is a museum dedicated to these relics of Americana... and I have the perfect outfit to tour this museum Ghee, an exclusive @ FAD called Neon Peplum Mini -- that is beyond eye candy !

Neon Peplum Mini comes in Azure, Orange, Crimson and Lemon. Best of all it comes with a color changing hud that allows you to change the color of the skirt on the dress as well as the color of the belt.  Perfectly matching heels and  nails, both with a mix and match color changing hud are also available.

Mr. X ---- are you feeling lucky..... roll the dice!

Mr. X and Nadine - Sascha Designs @ The Instruments

I told Mr. X my travel schedule was ramping up...he told me I needed three suitcases to cross the street...I had to agree...! One thing I like to have when I travel whether RL or on the grid is a  go to classic dress that looks good anywhere at any time.

Exploring The Instruments, I found a fabulous shift style dress with classic lines that cannot help but flatter by Sascha's Designs.

High on Love - Heart Homes & Ever an' Angel @ Sneak Peek

And, why not high on love?  Mr. X and I were feeling like a couple of rambling gypsies.... so we decided to lounge away the hours in the new gypsy tent from Heart Homes that is an exclusive at Tres Chic.

This set is PG and offers wine and many other tasting options -- and song... there is nothing like being serenaded by a guitar..... did I tell you Mr. X has a wonderful voice even though he has a funny accent....

Whether you lie around, sit and eat or drink, dance or even snuggle, this gypsy tent is great fun and low in prims. Nothing is linked so you can set up the objects in the tent any way you like... or if you are low on prims, and this set is low in prims, you can always take a few things away.

I am wearing the new exclusive outfit from Sneak Peek that runs through August 5 called -Paint -Nautical Nostalgia - Siren by Ever an' Angel.  I love the rich purple color of this silk dress that is washed with an iridescent pattern like the waves of the ocean that is elegant and adds just the right touch of sparkle.

Best of all at Sneak Peek you can get this fashionable outfit before it hits the grid and be way ahead of the fashion curve!  Paint Nautical Nostalgia comes with an asymmetrical  crop top and long flowing skirt with a side tie that will get you noticed whereever you choose to wander on the grid....

Mr. X and Volupta and Alisha... Fellini Couture & October 4 Seasons

The dusk -- Mr. X always sees her pacing as the sun sheds golden light illuminating her... She is often alone. He wonders who she is waiting for.
Today she is wearing the most elegant gown that is simply arresting, uncommon -- her favorite combination, Mr. X concludes. He imagines she runs her affairs effortlessly, takes people to places that are unmappable and talks passionately about ideas, not people. She is his kind of woman.
A  beautiful woman in a new release by Joy Fellini called Volupta this 100% fancy crepe georgette silk gown has a lush floral pattern punctuated by a flower embellished waistline and tulle ballerina skirt that sweeps and sways in the breeze... a sight that  is truly unforgettable.
The gown is perfectly balanced with  a floral sleeve on one shoulder and the headpiece that is reminiscent of a beautiful butterfly.  And, yes, she is elusive and alluring like a dream deep in the heart of  Mr. X.  She remains an amazing symbol of metamorphosis.

As for the skin, it is a new exclusive at MOR by October 4 Seasons called Alisha. This blossom skin is gorgeous and comes with four types of make-up plus a natural option, cleavage tattoos and slink, maitreya and Omega appliers.

Mr. X and the Skull & Crossbones femme couture @ Sneak Peek

Most people associate the skull and cross bones symbol with pirate lore and there is an interesting historical reason for this.  This symbol, its use and meanings  has a deeper origin with the Templars who had the largest fleet in the 13th century.  This  symbol was used on flags by the knights on their ships.  They were warriors and perhaps the first pirates of the middle ages.

Mr. X likes the esoteric lore and fascinating history of the Templars.  He told me that the skull and cross bones were used on Masonic graves and engraved on the hilts of ceremonial swords and embroidered on aprons or sashes worn by Master Masons.

With this symbol in mind, I was delighted to find a long asymmetrical flowing skirt with its pattern of skull and crossbones and the flowing white tunic top by femme couture as an exclusive at Sneak Peek.  I told Mr. X that the night is young and that I am ready to learn more about the rituals of initiation into the mysteries of the Templars....

Mr. X and Andromeda --Jumo @Sneak Peek

Mr. X have you seen the stars tonight... he said no.... TP please because I am a universe of stars that dazzle and entice in this new exclusive from Sneak Peek by Jumo called Andromeda.

The classic legend of Andromeda goes back to the time of the Greeks... I love the romanticism of this story that has been played out time and again over countless centuries. Most beautiful of the nereids, this nymph -daughter of Poseidon is chained to a rock as a sacrifice to the sea monster in order to punish his vain wife.

The good news of course is that Perseus set her free - much like a knight in shining armor .... and married her.  This tale has inspired many love affairs through the centuries.  Speaking of good news, Andromeda by Jumo comes loaded with a cluster of stars in the form of a necklace, bracelets and artistic star cage.

Mr. X On the Board Walk - MSS @ FAD

Lingering near the boardwalk on the water's edge... in the summer sun... I am thinking of gelato and snow cones... I watch herring gulls hover over fishermen and in the distance children splash each other at the water's edge.
A fab find at FAD that runs through July 28 is this new outfit by  MSS called Loletta Outfit Pink.  I love this midriff sleeveless blouse with its' asymmetric hemline and bold pastel stripes.  The matching cropped pants are perfect for a summer stroll as I wait for Mr. X.

Have you ever had the feeling that you are being...watched and perhaps admired?  Well I was... by Mr. X naturally and endearingly of course.

Mr. X - In full bloom @ the Instruments - !Lyrical B!zzare

In my garden the only noises are the sounds of the sea and birds... the quiet of flowers that bloom and the beating of my heart in unison with Mr. X - my universe. Mr. X left me an extraordinary dress called Flutterby by !Lyrical B!zzare and shoes from Purple Moon called Titania that are exclusives at the one year anniversary event at The Instruments.

I told Mr. X that a life without flowers is  not a life worth living! Mr. X -- is the perfect blend of wit, style and charm (with a dash of naughtiness) and  always knows how to make me happy... most of the time!!   Just like this dress, it makes me happy!

Wearing Flutterby - I feel like a Chloris (later named Flora), the goddess of flowers --- the Nymph of Elysion... I frolic in my fruitful garden amid flowers in every hue, size and shape they  are caressed by soft breezes and fed by mountain spring water....and the shoes flow up my legs like a restless river.
Mr. X marvels at the head piece of this gown and says, it is like me.... when I speak, my lips spring roses... he is enchanted and mine. I am also wearing the new mesh lashes by October 4 Seasons called Undaunted. They come in 6 colors from natural and dark to pink and even iridescent... I have two words tin regard to them ---"get them"!

I love Flutterby's translucent panels interspersed with pretty petals that cascade and flow as I walk making this dress nostalgically updated.  As I wander deep into my garden... I vanish in a vaporous breeze...but the scent of my flowers lingers... and petals scatter like a carpet to the sun.

"Bohemian Rhapsody and Mr. X - new release Rayne Couture

I told Mr. X he has to play it cool... he always does but sometimes the stress beats you down.  This is when it is time for  candles, a glass of wine and a backrub!  I love to pamper Mr. X... because he is just so damn considerate.
Speaking of cool, Rayne Couture has just released a romantic boho inspired outfit called La Boheme.  This uninhibited updated  loose flowing maxi skirt with its' vibrant paisley texture is the ultimate ode to boho chic of the 70s.  

Friends will rave about this stylish boho ensemble  that also comes in two versions - teal and purple as worn and  forest and red.

The swingy fringe top finishes off this carefree boho look with an allure that reminds me of Joni Mitchell and Ladies of the Canyon.

The down to earth chunky accessories, low slung sandals and my long flowing blonde (of course) hair completes the boho look.  Mr. X said Sita... let's color the hours and paint the canyon with love.

The Storm & Mr. X - Ghee @ The Instruments

Mr. X loves summer storms and bolts of lightening that light up the summer sky and, then there is thunder that  shakes his very being.... I asked him if he was talking about me... always diplomatic (coughs)  he said, " Sita - give me a break!"

I love summer storms --  I think they are romantic. The new exclusive gown created by Ghee is based on the goddess Mari and will create a tempest wherever you go.  Mr. X will not forget the storm Mari and I have dreamed up!

Ghee has created an unforgettable gown in honor of the powerful Goddess Mari for the First Anniversary Event for the Instruments through August 6.
Mari is the Mother Goddess of  Faerie lore and the primary deity that expressed life by changing the weather...and in this rendition, I think Mari likes storms!  Of course it goes without saying she is just and wise and that this gown is gorgeous and includes a rain splashing emitter encasing the gown in a storm and matching ribbon wraps for Slink high feet.
The Mari set  by ghee comes in 3  colors: Aquamarine, Amethyst and Hematite. What makes Mari exciting --- fun and different is that  each set includes a storm cloud with an artful array of particles  in addition, to lightening and a puddle  -- it can be attached for effect or just wear the gown for its' sheer beauty.

It is impossible to capture the beauty and unique options of this gown in still shots.... it needs to be worn in SL and  trust me it will be admired.  In the meantime, here is a utube video showcasing the highlights of this gown Here is the Mari Set in Action:

Mr. X and the Agony and.....Wicca's Wardrobe @ The Instuments

 The truth is deeper... like the  indigo shade of the midnight sky... where the the planets intersect.... and yes, Mr X and I are star crossed lovers. It is simply as it should be... even though we bear the agony of times zone and distance. Speaking of agony, Wicca Merlin had created Agony, a  wildly creative dress that can be worn 3 different ways --- with leggings or with or without flexi prims that can be found exclusively at The Instruments in celebration of their anniversary.

Agony is a fresh take on the intersection where rocker glam and couture collide.   Worn as a short tunic shift dress you will discover your inner diva!  Wicca's spike Manion Heels for slink high feet  finish the look.
In an unexpected way Agony combines a futuristic vibe with classic lines.  The subtle geometric texture of this dress/tunic and leggings combined with the spikes that punctuate your shoulders and hemline is playful and daring in a  punk rock motorcycle cool way making it a must have.

As a gown, Agony is a poetic statement with a sonnet of special details -- the spikes, the billowing silk skirt and the celestially futuristic Kandira Headpiece is simply stunning.
The Kandira Headpiece comes with a color change HUD in silver, black, gold and bronze. The base plate will keep it's color, but you can change the spikes and gems to different textures via the HUD.
