Yes, Mistress.

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Comes in bells, your servant, don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

Downy sins of streetlight fancies
Chase the costumes she shall wear
Ermine furs adorn the imperious
Severin, Severin awaits you there
I am tired, I am weary

I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather
Shiny leather in the dark
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

I have had the song "Venus in Furs" by The Velvet Underground stuck in my head for a while and when I saw this outfit from SD Wears I had to make it into a look for a Dommes.

Some of My Favorite Things Part 1

I am going to start posting about some of my favorite stores. They might not be the "newest" stores around. They might not be the trend of the moment, or hang out with the "cool crowd", but they make quality items and have never been involved in shady business. The designers in these "Favorite Things" posts will be ones that take up gigantic portions of my inventory. I love them all and hope to do them justice!Jewelry: Artistry by ~E~
Lingerie: Wanderer the Wind
Skin: Fior Di Perle
Hair: Truth

For my first post I am going to show Artistry by ~E~, formerly known as Blood Diamond Jewelry.

Endra Graves, the creator behind Artistry, is a no-nonsense woman. You do not want to get on her bad side, LOL. If you get on her good side, however, she will send you awesome bacon-related recipes. Oh, wait, maybe that's just me!Jewelry: Artistry by ~E~
Lingerie: Wanderer the Wind
Skin: Fior Di Perle
Hair: Analog Dog

The pieces are sold in sets, no separates for most of the items. In each set you get a minimum of three items (necklace and earrings being most common, but other sets come with bracelets, rings, etc.). The prices vary from set to set, but expect to pay between 500L-1000L for most items.

If you join the update group you will be eligible to get notices about great sales and frequent fun things like gift card hunts. I am lucky enough to be in this group and it's AWESOME because everyone gets along and it's just super fun and we get special offers and whatnot and I love it :P
Jewelry: Artistry by ~E~
Lingerie: Cupcakes
Skin: Fior Di Perle
Hair: Clawtooth by Clawtooth

This post is going to be a long one, if you can't tell already :P The items I am showing you are only a fraction of what I have and what I have is only a fraction of the sets available. I should also note that gift cards are sold here. You just can't go wrong with gift cards. Seriously. Your girl friend wants jewelry! Christmas is coming up! :D Go now to Artistry and support the creative creators!

I also want to point out that the skin I am wearing is awesome. LOL. It is by Fior Di Perle. I had never been to Fior Di Perle until a review copy was passed to me recently. All the skins worn throughout this post are the "Claudia" line and I think they are just super. They have realistic eyebrows, which always wins me over! I also really love the tummy because it is soft without looking flabby and it doesn't look too muscley for those times when I choose to wear a heavier shape.
I also really love the dark eye makeup on the skins I am wearing, as well as the lip colors. The lip colors are just perfectly suited to the skin tone, which is important. Often times creators will just slap the same makeup colors on every tone with no regard as to whether or not it actually looks ok :P Word has it Fior has an MM board too so check that out as well!!

Note: The last jewelry set is part of the private collection...meaning it is not in the store and you can't have it. I'm just super special and showing off, teehee.

...and where have YOU been?

I haven't been blogging much lately because I'm doing a stint as the queen of road trips, and I'm not nearly done. I've got 2 more week-long road trips in me before 2010, both for major holidays, and I'm all meh about them. And I'm sick, so that's the cherry on my sniffling sneezing coughing aching stuffy headed sundae. Ha!

I needed some cheering up, so I dug in my inventory for the little things that make me happy. Some of you know I'm downright nuts about apples and apple stuff in RL and SL, so I decided to show you some of my finds. Hopefully you'll find something here that catches your eye :)

This apple shirt from eLDee is one of my favorites, mainly because it's the first apple item I found in SL. This wormy necklace and bracelets from WhoNose is just so damned cute.
When Sileny told me about the apple cardigan at Concrete Flowers, I think I broke the lightspeed record for teleports.
And look, I even have apples on my shoes! THAT MAKES ME SO HAPPY!

If you find more apple stuff around SL, please let me know. Leave me comments with slurls, and I will love you forever and ever! :D

Secret Agent

Amaya was once a poor girl growing up in the slums of Kingston. Surrounded by violence and poverty she watched the tourists with envy and wished for the day she could get away. She fought for everything from the day she was born, only her beauty saved her from complete destruction. As she grew older she grew stronger and people began to take notice of her. Some important people. One day a knock on the door came and men in suits took her family away. "We will return them safely to you if you work for us. It is dangerous but you, we think, will survive." She had done many things she did not want to do in her time...this couldn't be that bad...could it?
Dress: Musashi Do (some of the best, most original texture work I have ever seen in SL. Make sure to stop by, even if just for a peek. There is stuff for men and women so you have no excuse not to!)
Hair: Flavor! Designs (again, items for men and women available. Even some hunt prizes and freebies floating about)
Skin: Street Dermatology (was a past gift, no longer available. However, there are some amazing skins in the store with free updates for life when you buy them so make sure to check it out)
Pose: (PDA) (A.K.A.- Penny Dreadful Arcade)
