Beach boy style with a hint of old money

Dear Second Life men, I am as devoted to my witty Tshirts and artfully-ripped tight jeans as anyone, but by this time of my (second) life I already HAVE them. I don’t need new ones.

What I like at Hanauma Bay Clothiers is that they show a casual beach style that is not exactly the same stuff you see everywhere. Here I am wearing my new white polo shirt and khaki shorts, note the preppy plaid lining.

I have it on good authority that @AdriHarper does not mind bare feet in her store. Which is a good thing because this outfit looked hilarious with the black dress shoes I walked in wearing.

Another good thing about Adrienne Harper’s store is its witty solution to the problem of wanting to rez new clothes right away. Purchases come in a “wear-to-rez” object that looks hilariously like an upscale garment bag hanging from your hand. It’s easy to get your clothes out of there and try them on.

Trying on clothes in the store did not used to be so tempting in the days before mesh. But now, you just put on invisible layers to start with, and after that nobody can tell if you are naked or not. I love progress, don’t you?

Now, back to the beach…

In which we rescue Elvis from black velvet

Where do you go for great art after you have migrated Mona Lisa to a Second Life beach? The only possible answer is … a black-velvet Elvis.

Now I think I have contributed enough to the art world for today and can go over to dance for a while at Frank’s Elite Jazz Club to the amazing tunes of my friend DJ Merry.

Peace, love, over and out. Just keep your toes curling over your surfboard.

Something to smile about

The real world needs more Second Life beach magic, and when I say the real world of course what I mean is works of great art that I can improve and then put on the walls of my house.

Don’t you think Mona Lisa looks happier now that I gave her a Matanzas beach backround plus a coconut drink to hold. Look, she already drank it. Now look at her smile!

After a hard day at the beach…

…that new lounger I bought from Trompe L’Oeil at FaMeshed looks mighty good!

What I’m wearing besides sun oil plus Slink hands and feet.. my new bathing suit, appropriately called Gold Shiny. I don’t think I’m ready to let anybody see what it’s like from the front though.

By the way, my house, which you can see in the background, is also from Trompe l’Oeil (aka Cory Edo.) He/she/they do great beach-style work!

Evening beach music for all you creators to dream on

Way back in black-and-white, someone took video of young Jimmy Buffett on a high school stage, with two other guys, two folding chairs, and not a lot more than that. Except maybe the part where Hunter Thompson sneaks in behind them. Long before Margaritaville became a mega-media empire, it was just a song that a young guy was willing to sing, again and again, because it was his own song.
So, don’t give up your dreams too easily. Most people do.

SecondLifeBeach Style at the Arcade: Ceiling fans for the cool!

Ocean breezes are great, but when beach boys and girls head indoors for siesta, a nice ceiling fan puts just the right spin on beach life atmosphere. These 25L gacha fans from Trompe l’Oeil really just pulled lindens out of my pockets. I like their stuff so much, guess I’ll have to find their main store instead of chasing their little displays around from FaMeshed to Arcade.

PG or adult? That is the FaMeshed question…

Really handsome decor for your private beach from Cory Edo (Trompe l’Oeil.) This gorgeous beach lounger (check out the wheels!) is what SecondLifeBeach tped to FaMeshed to find, after Skate Foss showed me the new ones she bought, on Matanzas. Lots of different fabrics and patterns and poses, even in the PG version.

Because… beach boy style is important! See more beach boy goodies at FaMeshed, here,
