What The Orphans Saw

I got dressed this morning and felt like doing a bit of exploring. Of course then I couldn’t find anything that wasn’t crap for about an hour.  I was about to give up, and declare today’s round of exploration a fail when I Bryn Oh’s name came up in my searching for this and that. It’d been a while since I wandered through one of their masterpieces so I thought i’d take a wander. There’s set up some Machinima links at the entrance to Lady Carmagnolle, but I’ll confess I didn’t watch them. I WILL watch them but sometimes I truly like to wander and just absorb. There seems to be more than one build happening where I wandered through, and honestly that’s fine. I was really just soaking up the beauty of everything. I’m not a good traveler and I don’t stay on paths and take things in as people want me to. I bop hither and thither and thus, I probably have more than one story that I saw today. I still loved all of it.… Read the rest

Unicorns and Baby Pools

Sophie has returned from Auntie Inventory and I confess I’m a bit happy to have her home. Let’s face it, it widens my shopping opportunities immensely now doesn’t it? I was feeling like a bit of a pool lounge today because after I picked up the cute pumps that were out for FLF I found THESE and well my first thought was “These are the pool shoes you’ve been dreaming of Gidge, make them yours.” And here we are. I don’t know what she’s been doing at Auntie Inventory’s house, but my GOD this child is tan. If I don’t watch out she’s going to grow up to be an invisible pony rider and then HOW WILL I KEEP HER OFF THE POLE? Ugh, pixel parenting is hard you guys. It really is. Now I suppose I should do something useful with myself today. Wearing new shoes is useful…right? Gidge is Wearing:

Summer’s The Thing

Well I couldn’t resist taking some snaps as I wandered around SUMMERFEST this year. The layout is just adorable, with sweet vignettes set up and so while I wandered, shopped and ate my cotton candy I just couldn’t not contain my enthusiasm. Is there ever an event that you always truly enjoy, yet struggle to remember? That’s me with Summerfest. It’s a nice layout, always lovely items and just a fantastic shopping experience but for some reason despite the fact that I’m thrilled when it arrives – more often than not it closes and there I sit, forlorn at having forgotten to go. Not this year! I made it through the whole place, picking up those MUST HAVE items and making away with a few that I probably didn’t need OR DID I? Who knows. I’m still dithering about RC Cluster’s sausage cart. I really want it. BUT WHY? Let’s just agree that it’s an amazing event, shall we? And – as proven here, a GREAT place to get some fun shots for your blog.… Read the rest

Start With Some Fruit

I’m trying to be healthier. I tend to be just so terribly lazy so I thought to myself, SELF, get up, get dressed in something cute and have some delicious fruit for breakfast. JUST DO IT. Get yourself organized and get some stuff done. Thus, here I am. I’m ready to tackle my shopping and adventures for the day. I might even take along my katana while I’m out, just in case any interlopers want to harrass me with “Make Fuck” invitations. But now, just for a few minutes, I’m going to relax and sort out my plan of attack. Happy Sunday girls! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Dance Dance Revolution – Vintage Style

Adam & Eve have released some lovely new pretties for VINTAGE FAIR and I had to hit the town in this beautiful dress made JUST for dancing. The swirl of the skirt and lovely fabrics have my swooshing around the grid in glee. Truly, only of my favorite creatures is the party dress and this one is extraordinary. I wore some comfy flats from Ingenue so I wouldn’t get tired feet while out dancing my heart out in this beauty. They didn’t disappoint me at all. It was a pretty wonderful Saturday night. I hope yours was beautiful as well. Be sure to check out Adam n Eve at Vintage Fair! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Shut Up and Drive

I had to have the PINK Convertible from Consignment at THE ARCADE this month and as a result, my friends got cars. YAY for my friends right? But I DID end up with the pink eventually which is really all that matters. I should get a garage for it, don’t you think? I am a ridiculous addict of ice cream in both worlds, which is probably no surprise. I find I prefer PIXEL ice cream though because of it’s complete lack of calories. You might ask why I have pears in my hair. I think the appropriate question is, why don’t YOU have pears in YOUR hair? It’s Second Life. We can do anything. Now if you’ll excuse me I’ve got to eat this and then drive around like a looney. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

After the Doom

I come in to the settlements to get news or when it’s barter time, just to make an appearance.  It’s important not to be forgotten out here. Not that anyone would be likely to be helpful if there was help that was needed. It’s more about position, about who you are in the grand scheme of things. I don’t barter. I take what I want and everyone can just like it or not.  Mostly, I don’t take anything. No need to create friction, unless I just feel like having a fight. Mostly I don’t. I come in to the main settlement every few weeks and wander around the perimeter. You never know what you’re going to find in the settlements, newcomers, oldbies with an axe to grind that’s as old as glitchpants, or calm. I am not here for trouble, just to learn what’s new, and to remind them I’m here. I’m always here.  They don’t need to know where I am exactly – just that I might show up. It might be a bad thing if I do.… Read the rest

Vacation Wrap Up

What can I say? The weather improved and I hit the beach for one last hurrah today!  I hit the beach for some paragliding and OH MY what an amazing day for it!  I’m cruising the sky this last day in a new swimsuit from EMPIRE which you can find at The Arcade – they have THREE suits and honestly, I can’t decide which I like best. This was the best way to end my vacation. I can’t think of a better ending. Time to head home. Back to fashion times. I’m ready. itsonlyfashionblog.com

Last Day of Vacation Blues

I ordered room service last night and fell asleep without eating it. Nice, right? Luckily my all inclusive resort includes meals brought in, so I know there will be something waiting for me downstairs. I’ve missed breakfast though. This rainy weather just tells me to sleep and sleep, so I did. Yes, it’s definitely lunch time. I wonder how many people they think are here? Anyone want to come help me eat all this? It’s a perfect day to relax and do a lot of nothing. I’ve got a good book and some delicious treats. I might even get some post cards sent out – like a proper vacationing adult might.  Right when I felt most relaxed in my digital world, without a care, I got a DING on my little phone reminding me that THE ARCADE is coming! Oh my gosh, right after post card writing – I’m making my shopping list. I guess it’s good I’m going home today, I’ve got a LOT to do! But for now, vacation. Just a little bit more.… Read the rest

Wander Away To Tempura

Since it’s not vacation if you don’t put on a swimsuit and do something lovely I decided to spend some time on the waterfront at Tempura Island which just happens to be near the vacation house I’m renting. Convenient, isn’t it? I thought so. Tempura Island has been here for 10 years,  can you believe it? It’s one of my favorite places for photos, and I was reminded of that today wandering the grounds. It reminds me so much of why Second Life can be such an effective escape for a little while, so much beauty is all around us and in so many forms. It’s a wonder. I have to admit I tried to ride this swan. He got quite cross with me and chased me out of the water. He looks ride-able though, doesn’t he? One more day of vacation left. I’m not sure how I’m going to spend it yet. A side note – The ARCADE is opening soon and to celebrate I pulled out an old release from MonCheri from a previous June Arcade round – this swimsuit.… Read the rest

Magical Forests and Comfortable Boots

I decided to take a hike for my Saturday afternoon activity. CAN YOU BELIEVE that in an inventory of ALMOST 140k items I don’t own one single item called “hiking boots”?  I, like you dear reader, am incredulous of this fact yet here we are. I didn’t own a pair and since I was off on vacation and CLEARLY can’t just teleport to a shop to pick up a pair I had to make due with what I had in my suitcase inventory. Luckily I had JUST thing thing from ISON – perfectly suited to protect my feet from nymphs or sprites or bugs or whatever it was that is currently inhabiting this place I’m staying for the weekend. I spent quite a while just running around taking silly photos. I’m not convinced I didn’t see a fairy or two – maybe I did, maybe I didn’t. There’s definitely something magical happening here in the forest. I love older places like this. Even though you get the silly blocks going in and out of focus constantly until you say OMG NEVERMIND and just quit waiting for it all to settle down.… Read the rest

Weekend Get Away

I decided that what would make the perfect weekend would be to get away to the lake for a while. Trompe Loeil has released the Deja house which frankly is perfect for LAKE or BEACH and since I live on the ocean, I opted for lake! The open view across the front lets me sit and gaze at the lapping waters, and just relax without a care for a few days. It’s perfect. I’m excited for a few days off from my 2nd Reality. I’m going to be looking for adventure and fun, hopefully I’ll find some! Itsonlyfashioinblog.com

Waterlogged

What’s the point of living on an island if you can’t play in the water sometimes? I often wonder that and Blueberry’s new wet tee shirt look has reminded me I can roam the seas of my own shore and should do more often. I slipped into Belleza’s Julia today. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to go wander the sea. In my jeans and tee – that’s right. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

So Goes May

The month of May might mean flowers and bright colors to you, but to those of us from Indianapolis it only means one important thing. THE INDY 500. I’ve written about it before, but let me assure you it’s not changed. Black and white rule the day and I’m delighted to have realized it’s TIME and to be here to celebrate this time of the absence of color. We love black and white, and you might be surprised to learn that despite this being a hot sweaty mess of a race day, there are a lot of quite elegant events that accompany it – and everyone, I mean EVERYONE is dressed in Black and White. I’m dressed for a cocktail party tonight, and I feel confident I’m going to be the best dressed in the room. Who can resist an amazing slinky minidress from Sascha’s Designs? I can’t. She also has them in prints but not for me this month. I also broke out some very VINTAGE earrings from Dark Mouse. They might be available on Marketplace – but I don’t see them on a quick review.… Read the rest

Wednesday Wandering – PREPARE FOR EXTRACTION

So a friend of mine on plurk has been chatting up about adventures on mainland for some time now, talking about a magical backpack that just transports you ANYWHERE and boom there you are. It sounds nutty and I’m pretty sure that by now you know, I LOVE THINGS THAT ARE NUTTY. So I had to get one. I’ve decided that until I forget about it or get bored or decide not to do it anymore, I’m going to make Wednesdays about some random exploration. I had a ridiculous time doing it today. Some places are hard to comprehend – like this one that had all these videos about JIRAs it wanted me to play. Why? What’s happening? Bleh. I moved on pretty quickly from here. Next it dropped me on top of a cave, in what seems like some sort of dragon keep or something. But I’m not sure. I fell down this side of the mountain, luckily I wasn’t in heels. And where I landed next was really much more like it. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Early Wandering

You’ve caught me out and about. But am I coming or going? I’ll never tell. But what I will share is that both me and my typist have an affinity for sweet tea and I just had to acquire a few cans.  A good can of sweet tea and really set your day straight, no matter what else has happened. Trust me on this folks. Don’t over look the power or the tea. Today I’m wearing a brand  I don’t think is even around any more. But I was feeling VERY vintage throwback today so I pulled out some amazing earrings from Dark Mouse, and this perfect retro dress from The Wicked Peach. It’s a perfect look for either starting – or ending your day. As I said, I’m not telling. You can pick up this wicked bodega bag at Sanarae this month. I got the rare on the first pull.

Kowloon To You Too

I decided to head out for some adventure exploring today and I wasn’t disappointed at all. Kowloon was a really well planned out city-scape and I’m going to be going back to explore more. I met some locals there down in one of the sublevel gathering areas who treated me to some of the local fair – roasted scorpion! I mean, they had rat or newt also, but I mean – I can get that anywhere right? The locals were lovely, but well armed. They did welcome me however and I enjoyed chatting with them for a while. They were polite enough to not mention my lack of panties. I think I saw this lady on Eurovision? And I’m pretty sure this is the guy who made Roy’s eyes. A real artist. He wasn’t any help though, he just sat there as though he couldn’t understand me. Rude. After a bit more exploring, I seemed like I had found the eye shop after all. Except – this wasn’t your usual Second Life Eye store… I decided to get my order to go.… Read the rest

Faith In The Wild

I was in a bit of a camp out mood last night, and luckily Cheeky Pea recently released some amazing glamping gear for Epiphany.  There is something about relaxing in the fresh ocean air that really refreshes this old pixel girl. No I’m not about to rough it out there, being comfortable is where it’s at. What you don’t camp in heels? Well darling, I don’t actually camp – so we’re even. Happy Saturday! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Old Meets New Meets Magic

I’m still playing with the glory that is the Baked on Mesh concept – the idea that our old system layers can be baked onto our beautiful mesh. it’s fairly fascinating and wonderful honestly.  Today I decided to do some swimming and to celebrate what’s possible I’m wearing an amazing new bikini from Blueberry – paired with a skin from………MOTHER GOOSE. Mother Goose that lucky board haven, that magical land of fun and interesting skins. YES I can and will wear her skins on my mesh. And so many more. My hair is one Nylon Outfitters released a while back and they just listed on Marketplace. It’s not fitted so you might have to stretch a bit to fit, but it’s so fun with it’s hologram effects it’s worth it. Old meets new all over me. Kind of a fun way to head into Friday, don’t you think? The prints for this new bikini are gorgeous. As always Blueberry scores with creativity. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Does it Get Weirder Than Baked on Mesh?

I continue to play with the concept of Bakes On Mesh (WHY CAN’T WE CALL IT BAKED ON MESH?) and decided there was no more fun place to see what I could do than at my good friend Putrid’s place. Putrid likes weird, and I like Putrid. It’s perfect. I wandered around her club Sticky Fingers and was quite entertained to realize that my tattoos still show up properly over my “BAKED ON MESH SKIN”. I’d like to understand how the layering of all that works but no, I’m just going to pass and say WELL DONE THIS IS AWESOME. Mesh body, mesh clothes, mesh shoes, applier tights and tattoos. Am I happy? Yeah I’m pretty happy. I think that when they get the baked on mesh world sorted out, it’s going to be a new world of flexibility for all of us. OH MY GOD I’m going to go drag out my Mother Goose Skins….. The future’s so bright, I gotta wear old Lucky Board Skins… Did I mention that Putrid built an entire set of Kubrick themed rooms?… Read the rest
