"We dreamed what ghosts of vanished loves made part
 Of that sweet light and trembling, amorous air.
 I felt in those rich beams that kissed your hair,
 Those breezes, warm with bygone lovers' sighs-
 All the dead beauty of Venice in your eyes,
 All the old loves of Venice in my heart. "

Hedo Fashion - Summer of Sexy Kings

Shopping at Hedo Fashion last night with my friend Gjools, and it came back to me. A year ago I found Hedo Fallen standing in his shop and we talked. I was new to SL (and looking it) and Hedo took the time to make suggestions and offer me some advice. I took Hedo up on all that he wisely suggested and he was right. Hedo told me that no matter the clothes, it is the man behind the AV that matters. Noble and wise words that have stayed with me. Hedo continually offers SL the most sexy and dynamic men's clothing available on the grid, making us all feel and look like sexy kings.

People ask me every day what jewelry I am wearing. One answer... Chop Zuey Couture Jewlery ~ The most loved jewelry on the grid. I started collecting pieces of Belle's jewelry through her group gifts. I had joined her group last year and was plesantly shocked to find such elegant pieces offered as group gifts. Then I hit the floor of the main store and walked. Before I knew it I had spent over 2 hours looking at the most impressive collection of jewelry available on the grid. From the most simple daywear to the must have mouth dropping, Belle has designed it and placed it in Chop Zuey for all to enjoy. When I competed in Mr. Avatar World 2012, I contacted Belle first to ask for her advice on jewelry selections and help. She kindly helped me style every outfit I wore and it got me to Top 5 after several weekly competitions.

! RFyre - Rahm

The 2012 Fantasy Faire is going on right now in SL through April 29th. while attended this event I found one of my favorite vendors had a shop set up so I ventured in to look at some of Raven Pennyfeather's new 2012 Spring line for RFyre. The moment I was inside I looked across the room and saw this suit (Rahm) and it took my breath. I blog, Facebook, and do multiple websites and I get most of what I wear in SL free. NOT this suit. I could have asked Raven I am sure, but when I studied this suit, I felt strongly that it was worth every linden that Raven was asking for it. She EARNED it. It is rare that I am impressed like this, but I encourage all my readers to visit Rfyre and look for yourself. The texturing is amazing, in that this is not a mesh suit. Flawless detail was giving to the structural design. Definitely unique and sure to make people ask... "Where did you get that suit"? This suit is the perfect treat for yourself to enhance that "perfect suit" in your wardrobe, or perfect gift.

Exquisite detail is given in every possible place. Laces on the wrists, stunning jacket chains, peak lapel, and elegant shoulder pads blend the Rahm into one of the seasons most stunning suits. Beautifully textured slacks are accentuated with a three-button drop waist design that brings a sensuous look with superior styling.
