Cinema and TRPH Styling – The Drama and the Elegance

Just a few hours left to swing by Cinema 2012 to pick up a design that can be either dramatic costume or  elegant evening dress.

You will make a striking Queen of the Nile in this fabulous Cobra Queen gown by 22769, including the headpiece and snake boa.  The colors are rich and regal, swathing you in black, gold, and purple silk in this flowing mesh gown.

Madrid Solo’s Raven’s Flock accents this look with makeup worthy of Egyptian royalty.

Finally, if you are looking for a more modern look that is just as dramatic, this versatile gown converts from B.C. to A.D. formal evening wear simply by switching to a tousled jewel-bedecked updo by EMO-tions and the Miracle ring, Chop Zuey’s item for The Runway Perfect Hunt, also ending at 11:59pm Oct 31st.

My Kind of Halloween Costume

I have never been one to dress up in spooky Halloween costumes, however, I do look forward to handing out candy to the neighbor kids on Halloween night and seeing their creativity and cuteness.  The pumpkins, my favorite Halloween tradition, have been carved and lit, and I’m dressed in my type of Halloween costume for the night, one that lends itself to opening and closing the door a hundred times for trick-or-treaters.  It is all about warmth and comfort, including a cozy loose sweater baring just a touch of shoulder, a pair of denim leggings, and of course, some comfortable tapestry boots, all with touches of oranges and browns in honor of the season.  With candy in hand and standing by the door, I’m all ready to hear that chorus of “Trick or Treat!”  Happy Halloween, everyone.

Boho Styling 3 – Harvest

I’m not much of a rl gardener.  Truth is, I don’t like worms, and larger slithery things…forget it.  However, I still know that each and every day I am sowing seeds, and what I sow will bring a harvest.  I’ve seen people act intentionally malicious, without any obvious provocation.  I’ve also seen others give and give, loving, helping, understanding, being a friend.  Both will reap a harvest of what they sow, and it will be multiplied when it is returned to them.  What you put out comes back to you…magnified.  Feelings, whether in RL or SL…they are all real.  This is not a game.  For thought, coupled with emotion, is the strongest catalyst for creation.  Your harvest is coming.  What are you sowing today?

Playing Hookie

Sometimes you have one of those “manic Mondays” and you are all dressed up for the day, and at the last minute you think to yourself; “I really don’t feel like working today.  I think I’ll play hookie.”  Every now and again, I think it is fine to take an unplanned day for yourself, to indulge a little and grab some “me time.”  So me and the beagle went out for a mint hot chocolate with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.  I’m looking like a schoolgirl out playing hookie in my layered knit top from ColdLogic and a tweedy Taffy skirt from Molichino.

I did bring my Ipad case along, however, so maybe I will still get some work done afterall.

Cinema Styling 2 – Film Noir

I should have seen she was nothing but trouble by the way she sashayed in, with that sultry look, the partial veil only adding to her mystery, and her desperate plea that someone was trying to frame her for murder. She said she needed an investigator, someone who could prove her innocence, and I bought it, hook, line, and sinker.  She made me feel needed and fiercely protective.  She made me smoke from the wanting of her, but what she was really wanted was a “fall guy.”

Film Noir, the black and white age of dark murder mystery, femme fatales, and intrigue is captured so well in this outfit, a wonderful mix of  designs “playing now” at Cinema 2012 through the 31st.  Here’s your ticket to a bit of steamy mystique.
