Sunflowers and Lighthouses

Music: I’ve just gotten hooked on Evergrey – which might be odd considering my musical tastes are all over the place, but I’ve not heard a band with such consistency in a while. I have to credit SL with introducing me to Regina Spektor, though.

LJ: Just edited the entry on "300" to include this url on the movie’s 300 Press Conference in-game: http://www.vh1.com/movies/news/articles/1554938/20070316/story.jhtml?rsspartner=rssMozilla It has some tidbits on the rumoured "Watchmen" movie, as well. I also met in-world and had a little chat about SL sights and her virtual home.

SL Updates:
I just had to blog two of my SL outfits recently, as they are among my favourites. The first was an impromptu mix I came up with for St. Patty’s Day, and the second is my favourite outfit for this week, Ginny’s Dressage jacket and jeans, the pic of which does not do it justice.

St. Patrick's Day (Tableau)Caliah in Last Call's Dressage (Amicitia)
One: Relika Itamae‘s Disco Fever top in Green/Gold (w/ scarf), Bare Rose’s Weekend Pass Skirt in Green, VAMP Boardroom Bish alligator pumps in Pewter, Muse Triste Coeur earrings in Gold, Naughty Winsome II hair in Cool Bay; Two: Dressage (Hunt Club Collection) from Last Call, Suede Knee-high Boots from Sylfie Minogue, Winsome II hair in Sand Dollar

Pictures were taken in Tableau and Amicitia, respectively. The former has a tiny cafe nook beteen two of the shops, which is my favourite spot in the entire sim. It has wrought-iron chairs, terracotta floortiles and a Van Goghesque pot of sunflowers. Just lovely.

I admit I didn’t promote my shop or its wares as extensively as I should have. I was afraid of getting a lukewarm response from the buying public, so I still feel all warm and fuzzy inside when someone posts a review. In this case, I’d been hoping and waiting for it since Celebrity had practically bought out my store (yay):

From http://blog.secondstyle.com/2007/03/jewelry-by-muse.html:

Jewelry by Muse – Celebrity Trollop

Caliah Lyon has been one busy avatar lately. She was the coordinator for the Second Convention Fashion show a week ago, and she’s gotten several modeling gigs recently — notably as one of Ginny Talamasca’s Girls Next Door (not difficult to understand given these ads!)

I was thrilled she could work with me on our lingerie layout for Second Style #7. But something I didn’t know was that Caliah also makes beautifully elegant and classy jewelry. Since she sent me a sample of her Coeur design, I’ve seen been back to buy the rest of the collection so far — the Claris pearl choker and earrings, the Laurelin necklace and another beautiful dangly gold and silver design. You’ve probably seen the various pieces of the collection in several pictures I’ve posted here on the blog — it’s never far from my thoughts when the outfit calls for something strikingly original and elegant. These initial pieces show a lot of promise and I hope to see much more forthcoming releases from Caliah.

Caliah’s store, Muse, is currently found in Imogen.

Now I just need to follow up šŸ™‚ I’ve been getting quite a few modelling gigs as she noted, which was a nice surprise (Zagoskin Haute Couture from Euterpe Zagoskin, and lately an offer from camilla Yosuke of Insolence). I’m still a freelancer, however.

    You left out what Miriel said on her blog: “Also: Laurelin? Is it possible there is another jewelry designer as nerdy as I am?” šŸ˜›

    Dork!

    Congrats also on the recent string of modeling gigs! Insolence, Zagoskin, Neat Boutique, etc. I’m starting to lose track of them all..haha.
