Getting Into Trouble

5 04 2010

This is not a typical blog post…

Steeling my nerves, I opened the door of the A-1 Detective Agency and stepped across the threshold, eyes zeroing in on the man I was here to see.  He was sitting behind a desk, shirt only half buttoned but his hat still firmly in place.  I blinked once, twice and then shut the door firmly, striding over to stand in front of the desk.  He didn’t even look up from the stack of papers he was signing.  I gripped the belt ties of my trench coat and waited for him to acknowledge my presence in the room.  And he would acknowledge me.  I was, after all, standing in front of his desk.  Besides, if all else failed, what I was wearing underneath this coat was sure to get his attention. 

My hands tightened on the ties as he finally looked up with a raised eyebrow. 

“You lost, doll?” His tone was far less helpful than his words.

I shook my head, trying to remain calm and collected, but truth was he made me a little nervous.  Okay, a lot nervous.  He was so much more…male than I expected him to be.  Tall, dark, and handsome was the cliché that came to mind, but with a healthy does of mysterious and sexy to round out the equation.  Why, oh why did I have to be attracted to him?  This would make what I had to do that much harder in the long run.  “I need your help.”

Fade To Grey

12 03 2010

Most people probably don’t think of grey when you mention spring, instead calling the brighter shades of nature to mind.  However, one of my favorite things about spring is the beginning of storm season.  Those tumultuous grey skies, cool rain, and the light show that is nature at her best, or worst depending on your view.  And because I love the color grey for spring looks, I was delighted to see that some of the newest releases from L`Abel were indeed made in this lovely shade.

Happy Holidays!

Katerina

12 12 2009

It’s cold here in RL and I’m feeling the need to dress warmly in my virtual life as well.  One of my favorite new “winter” outfits is Katerina from House of RFyre.  I knew I wanted it the moment I saw the photo.  It was so beautiful I even asked for a review copy; which is something I do very rarely.  Harper Beresford was kind enough to pass me Katerina and I knew I had to take it to one of my favorite snowy places and snap some photos.

December Warmth

29 11 2009

Winter is fast approaching and that means the cold and snow will be here before I’m ready.  That is always the case in RL since winter is my least favorite season.  I don’t really care for snow.  However, Shiryu Musashi of Musashi-Do has created a coat so fabulous you won’t mind traipsing through the cold white stuff as you do your holiday shopping.

Surprise! It’s Halloween!

31 10 2009

**Edited to fix the Surprise! slurl**

Happy Halloween!  It is the most important day of the year (for me, anyway) and also my favorite holiday all rolled into one.  But, alas, I know there are some of you still looking for that perfect costume.  If you’re in the market for a ready-to-wear witch costume, Lara Aridian of Surpise! has made a fantastic one. 
 
Witches don’t always have to be dark and sexy.  Sometimes, witches are just cute and sassy (w/a hint of sexy), and that’s what this first costume by Surprise! is.
