Hippyish

Freebird

When the head of state didn’t play guitar,
Not everybody drove a car,
When music really mattered and when radio was king,
When accountants didn’t have control
And the media couldn’t buy your soul
And computers were still scary and we didn’t know everything

When pop-stars still remained a myth
And ignorance could still be bliss
And when God Saved the Queen she turned a whiter shade of pale
When my mom and dad were in their teens
And anarchy was still a dream
And the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail

When record shops were still on top
And vinyl was all that they stocked
And the super info highway was still drifting out in space
Kids were wearing hand me downs,
And playing games meant kick around
And footballers still had long hair and dirt across their face

I was born too late to a world that doesn’t care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair……..

So much lovely newness still to show you! I really don’t know how I’m going to manage to squeeze this lot into one post, but I’m going to give it a shot!

 First of all I have this very sexy pose to show you from Luane’s World Poses. This one is called ‘Sexy Back’ and it’s available now at the XXX Event until 5th September. As you can see, its a single female pose, 1 of several exclusives at the event, including single and couples poses.  Sexy Back comes in both pose ball and playable animation versions, and there is also a mirror pose too. Check out all Luane’s poses at the event, I guarantee you will find at least one, if not more, that you love!

 The very stylish and cute outfit I’m wearing is from Prism Designs by Journey McLaglen.  The Seaside Fade Jeans in Tropico and Top in Coral, both available now at the August round of Designer Showcase, which runs until 31st August. Both pieces come in fits for all the usual mesh bodies, plus some standard sizes too. There’s a few different colours and textures to choose from, so get along to the event now and grab yourself some!

Freebird Closeup Shoes

These pretty sandals I’m wearing are another fabulous release from Slipper Originals. These are the Cera Sandals and they are available now at the current round of The Chapter Four Event, until 30th August. There’s lots of colours to choose from, and a HUD that allows you to change every aspect of the sandal individually, enabling you to get that unique look!

Just look at this absolutely gorgeous headband from Petit Chat! Another unique and quirky piece of original mesh from the very lovely and talented Trinity Yazimoto. The Abigail Headband has a HUD that allows you to change colours of every aspect of the headband, the laces, gems, metals, stone and pearls. It is mod too so you can move it around and resize it to suit yourself. Abigail is available now at The Chapter Four Event until 30th August, so, while you’re there grabbing the sandals from Slipper, grab Abigail too!

Just Me

Another absolutely beautiful set of eyes from Mesange, are the Dandy Eyes, these lovelies are available at the Hipster Men’s Event which runs until 6th September. As always with Mesange eyes, you get the classic eyes, mesh eyes, and a HUD that works with Omega enabled eyes. All the eyes are unisex and there are 15 colours to choose from.

My luscious lips today come courtesy of Blushes Boutique with their new mainstore release, Lipstick Glossy. This collection is for Catwa heads and there are 5 gorgeous glossy colours to choose.

  1. Beautiful pictures, Phen. I really adored the Hippy era, it went on for quite a while and still has influences today in fashion and concept. It was a complete break from what went before, a sort of reaction to austerity of thought and material goods. Not all of it was super, though, and some people got upset in a number of ways because they didn’t think sensibly at the time what they were doing and the effects it would have on their future, but I think it needed to happen.

  2. Very cool Phen. It is a great interpretation of the outfit and I love the whole mood of the artistic view and your poetry and music. I had older step brothers who were all about a decade ahead of me and were at the tail end of the hippy generation so I was envious of them when I was a kid, and often tried to copy their style. I think that is why I am so attracted to that time. It seemed a lot more uncomplicated. I grew up on the beach so it was more surfer era and in that sense we retained a bit of the hippy influence always Great blog. Sensitive and always exploring the intercept of fashion and art. I like that! Thanks again.

    1. Oh Journey, thank you so much for your kind words, and I’m so happy you like what I did. It makes it easy to choose the right words and music when I have such lovely outfits to show off! AS for the Hippy Era, I only just grabbed the tail of it too, but it is a time I’ve read so much about, I would have loved to have been a young adult at that time, when we didn’t need anything! Imagine the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail! I think we’d all have a nervous breakdown today if our technology was suddenly snatched away from us. I want to go back to that time often, when life was simple!
