LOTD #163 – Calm Your Nerves

LOTD 163

She slammed the phone down, annoyed by yet another pervert.

Honestly, what did they get out of breathing at her through the phone?

She shook her head in disgust and flounced over to her favorite chair.

LOTD 163 2

She sat on the edge of the chair, still a bit rattled.

What she really needed was a martini.

I hate answering the telephone.

But I hate listening to a ringing phone even more.

I blame it on the 3 years I spent working at a busy answering service, where I was constantly surrounded by ringing phones.

(That’s also where I developed my carpal tunnel; in the days before computers, all the messages were written by hand.)

Though I own a smartphone, I would say that it actually is used as a phone less than 10% of the time.

If I get a call from an unknown/restricted/blocked number, I don’t answer.

I’ve gotten a few odd/weird phone calls (usually from a crazy ex, but that’s another story).

I have been looking for an opportunity to use this great phone prop from Image Essentials, and when I put on this corset set from Pixicat, I had it.

The phone prop has 3 poses built in, all of them crazy sexy. 🙂

The Pixicat corset is just gorgeous – I love the frilly bows and the rose accent.

The Luminesse jewelry I think I picked up at a cart sale many moons ago, but a girl can never have too much jewelry.

Or shoes!

These adorable slingbacks from KC were on sale on Marketplace a few weeks ago, and I just had to have them. 🙂

I love KC shoes, because there are always so many options via their HUDs.

And again, I must say that I love using my mesh head and body for photos – such a timesaver!

The rest of the decor are various items I’ve had for quite a while, so I’m not listing them here.

If you’re curious about a particular item, just ask. 😀

Oh, and the numbers you see in parentheses are the render cost of the items, as near as I could figure them.

There are a few designers who have begun putting the render cost of items on their vendor pics, and I think it’s a great idea.

Just doing my bit to help you be an informed consumer. 😛

LOTD #125 – Beauty in Disguise

LOTD 125He squinted at the photo, trying to see through the grainy blur.

It was her, all right, despite her bleached hair and her cloche hat – a lame attempt at a disguise.

She was waiting at the train station, probably already planning her next con.

Yay for productivity!

LOTD #111 – Memories

LOTD 111The circus was always a magical place.

The pungent smells, the bold colors, the beautiful girls – but his favorite was always the carousel.

A circular delight – picking out his favorite horse, his father lifting him up into the seat, the blurred sea of faces whizzing past.

He smiled down at his own small son as they waited their turn.

LOTD #110 – Hope

LOTD 110As she posed playfully for him, he paused.

She was never afraid to be herself.

Maybe he could learn from that.

LOTD #104

LOTD 104I was busily working away and I got a notice that Genre was open.

This round’s theme is ‘rockabilly,’ and since I love vintage/retro stuff, I headed right on over!

I picked up this darling dress from Distorted Dreams.

I’m a huge fan of Noctis, and when I saw this cute bar, I had to have it.

I bought the charcoal bar and barstool, but when I got home to unpack, my barstool folder had another copy of the bar. 😦

I wrote a quick note to the creator and in less than a minute (I kid you not!), I had my barstool.

I love the well-worn look of the bar and stools, and the pose is a built-in animation.

Cheers for rockabilly!
