Like Natalie

My mother would always say “They say Elizabeth Taylor is the most beautiful woman in the world, but she isn’t. it’s Natalie Wood.” She was timeless and elegant, and I was excited to see that one of SL’s most classic skin makers, Adam N Eve, had made a new skin for Vintage Fair in the spirit of her style. If you’re newer to SL you might not be familiar with the brand, but I can promise it’s one you need to know. Classic styles and fashion, and very unique and beautiful skins to make your look more personal are what you’ll find there. I’m such a fangirl, I risk sounding ridiculous. You know those bloggers who rave on and one and don’t seem impartial or like they’re giving you a neutral critique? That’s how I’ll sound about Adam n Eve if I keep going on. My love is old and strong. The dress is also from Adam n Eve. This is one stop at Vintage Fair that’s not to be missed. Check it out!… Read the rest

The Things You Forget

It’s funny what you forget, and what you remember, over ten years time. Asked recently to recollect my days in SL, the arc of my existence in pixel space, and the story flowed.  But what struck me wasn’t the fails, the losses, the friends who turned out to be flakes and went their way. No, it was the constancy of the right people – when you are lucky enough to meet them. Realizing where you came from, hosting silly events together and making sure campers got paid, and where you are now is an interesting reflection on time and space and the characters of  people who have come and gone. But what’s more interesting, perhaps, is that we continue and grow and change.  I’m happy but I’m ready to do more/ learn more/ try more. If there is a word for both content and ready to grow, that’s me. The Russians probably have a word for it, but it doesn’t have any vowels. Cajsa invited me over to The Trace Too to check it out  (I’ll be back there soon, now I’m hot for location shots) and we chatted about all the things, including whether the Apostle Paul was a fraud.… Read the rest

Poolside Respite

I always think I’ve found the perfect pool but then I find the next perfect pool and then the next one and well, obviously this means I have a lot of pools. Scarlet Creative released a new MUST HAVE resort style pool and I admit, it was on my list of amazing pieces at this round of Collabor88. My hair is from EXILE and the bikini from Nardcotix – all from this round of Collabor88 as well. It’s a great month for those who love the leisurely SL Summer. Now if you’ll forgive me, I’ve got some lounging to do. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

A Reason To Lounge

Collabor88 an Second Spaces gave me a whole new reason to chill out and do nothing in Second Life and once again, I’m perfectly ok with that. New lounge chairs for the pool weren’t a need but hey WHAT IS A NEED ANYWAY? I don’t even know. I’m in the mood for a nothing day so I invited you to indulge as well with some adorable sandals from Fri.Day and a perfect summer chill out hair do from EXILE you can also pick up at Collabor88. As for cold drinks on a hot day, Schadenfreude delivers an unusual landscape in a bottle. Some people drink the worm in tequila. I drink the shark. It’s gonna be a great Sunday.

A Perfect Day To Grill

It was a perfect day for a nap, in fact naps were already in progress, when I realized I was incredibly hungry. There was nothing for it but to make some food and I just HAPPEN to have a new grill! But what to cook? If you’re like me, you love to use the internet to look up new and fun recipes and ideas. Today’s search didn’t disappoint and I’m ready to grill up some new tasty food.  I am forever looking up new ways to cook things – yet over fire is always my favorite. Oh yes, summer has come to our little island. I am SO ready. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

You Had Me At Gacha

Good morning girls. I’m slow moving, trying to get out of bed this morning, but when I’m surrounded by my pretty pink bed it’s difficult to get out and out and away like I should. I’m exhausted from the Arcade preview and excited at the same time. It’s a great round.  One of my favorite things is that this round I was able to pick up some much needed handymen to get some work done around my place. FINALLY! They seem competent, so I’m going to go out and get a few of my errands done today while they do their work. Both my dress and hair are avail at THE ARCADE this round as well. I really love this dress from new to me brand !GO!. I will have to check them out after the event at their mainstore location. Now I’m off to have a Wednesday. You girls have a good one too.

In the Out of Doors

Some might wonder in the magical land of Second Life why I choose to “be normal”. I suppose it’s a valid question. Perhaps it’s because this is, as Prok so rightly called it (although regarding someone else) – a room of one’s own. In life my typist isn’t afforded the luxury of just simply having everything just so, as she’d like and thus in this space, she gives me whatever she fancies, even if just for a while. Thus, unicorns. Tomorrow – who knows? My fancy wanders, hither and dither and I don’t care if it’s not exotic enough for some. My world, my imagination. Today my imagination wanted a fountain. I’m also going shopping for some nail polish. It’s going to be a wild day, I tell you that. If my fancy reaches for no more than a gentle topiary that pleases my eye, I’ll look on it an call it fine. That’s contentment. Also my hair is sticking through my arm. I’m going to call that fine too.… Read the rest

You’ve Lost Your Damn Mind

The age old conversation about absurd requirements for bloggers never seems to end. I was having a conversation with my girl Sasy and we were once again clucking about the weird measures and expectations people seem to be obsessed with. The other side of the conversation also seems to be that everyone and their brother thinks they can blog because it’s easy and free stuff, at least that’s the tagline. Of course if you ever blogged for any amount of time, you’d know that isn’t the case. It’s work, it’s a commitment and it actually take some effort. These ongoing shenanigans and tiresome conversations make me happy to be a bit of a hermit sometimes, only sideswiped by the occasional crazy notecard. What’s good however, is that I know I can keep on supporting people who work respectfully together and feel very positive about it. I appreciate that, and the long friendships that have formed over the years. Veteran bloggers, we’re salty.… Read the rest

Pregaming Summer

I heard a ridiculous ad on the radio where they were proclaiming that they were going to PREGAME MY SUMMER. That’s called SPRING folks, it already HAS a name. Regardless of that, my pool is full and I’m ready for it all. My new swimsuit from Blueberry is really perfect, I adore the styling and color choices.  You can pick this up along with my adorable summer bracelets from NOIR at Collabor88 this month. My windblown summer hair is a new release from EXILE also at Collabor88. My big plans for the day are to cook out on my grill and lounge in the sun. Who knows, maybe I’ll get a tan. Hard to say – this pixel sun is weird. Hope you’re having an amazing weekend girls. See you soon. <3 Gidge Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Pretty Belleza

When Belleza releases a new skin it’s always been a reason for me to take note. I’ve been a fan a long time of the elegant and understated looks offered by this brand. Elegant without being overpowering, Erin is another one in the WIN column from Belleza in my opinion. If you haven’t checked out ERIN for Lelutka head, it’s time to do so. She’s just lovely.

Bringing Color and Wonder

I looked across the lake and found that Cajsa has tinted a new house from Barnesworth Anubis that you can pick up at Collabor88 to a striking RED color. I’m so in love with it that I’m envious I didn’t think of it myself. It was rather lovely to wake up to, I have to admit. You might be wondering if I’m ever going to take this hair off? Probably not.

It’s Getting Hot

I decided the perfect way to start my week this Monday was to take a dip in my pool. Most people might wait until Memorial Day in the states to christen the pool but I figure my pool is exempt from such provincial traditions. I’m sporting a new bathing suit, and I can never have enough of them. This one is actually FREE if you join the Boom Clothing company VIP group – WHICH INCREDIBLY is also free to join. Aranel Ah is back in SL full force and she’s released this as a little teaser to get you come check out her goods! I suggest you do so! Is there really any better way to start your week than this? I’d like to know what it is. I think this is it. Also, I may be sporting some nip. I can’t decide. Side nip? Itsonlyfashionblog.com

I’ve Hired Out My Cleaning

Well despite having a weak spot for fun cleaning accessories, I was reminded that I have this delightful vacuum from my friend Kitty and decided to PUT IT TO WORK today. After all, I’ve got quite a bit to get done and I can’t be worrying about sweeping. Get to work kitty! I’ve been baking this morning. I should probably invite folks over because if I eat all of this I’m going to be big as a house. Today I’m showing off the complete outfit you can pick up from AZUCHI at the Epiphany.  When Sands told me he was making a denim jacket for Epiphany I thought “oh nice”. But what he’s ended up releasing is so cute and fun for spring, I’m delighted. Shoes, socks, skirt, top or jacket – any of these pieces are  a win. I love the colors and tones of these pieces. I’m going to have to go make a run at Epiphany to see what else is awesome and necessary in my SLife. Happy Sunday Girls. Make it a good one. Itsonlyfashionblog.com
