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. The Gacha Gods were WITH me. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

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

Happy Birthday Cajsa

The first time I ever visited Cajsa at her house, she lived underwater. This isn’t to say she lived in some kind of bubble house underwater, she actually lived underwater. It was the fist time it had occurred to me that since the rules of breathing were not a necessity any longer that one could just live in a house underwater – just for fun. But she did. It was the first time I truly considered that a house didn’t need to be a house. I’m still pretty conventional but I never have forgotten the first time I realized that none of the rules applied in this place. Today is her birthday and an easy one to remember – it’s Tax Day in the US – and Cajsa’s birthday. Unlikely to be forgotten! I don’t know what she’s doing today, but I hope it’s relaxing and pleasant. I’ll be wondering if I shouldn’t live under the sea for a while, just to try it out? HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAJSA!!!!!

There’s Magic Afoot – BakesOnMesh Magic

So yesterday I saw Sydd Sinister on FB talking about BakesOnMesh. She’s linked some info from Sasy and as I read long in the commentary something became incredibly clear. MAGIC IS COMING. If you’re old enough you remember when you could wear your jacket on the pants layer and it was a good idea because you needed the jacket layer for your tank top because your underwear layer was for you tattoo of a dying shark saying something in Japanese. It was just a different kind of confusing, I promise you, we understood it. Then Mesh came along and saved us all and we saw the light and got rid of our clumpy cave man hands and feet and then our heads and finally our bodies and ALL THE THINGS and life was smooth and beautiful. Apparently someone said “What if we could find a way to slap all those old system layers onto your mesh and make them look nice?” And someone else said “Yes let’s do that.” I present to you GIDGE – Wearing her mesh with “System Layers” slapped on top.… Read the rest

I Can Read Your Mind

When I unpacked the new minidress from Baiastice my first reaction was legitimately HOT DAMN. There is a line between sexy and slutty and while many folks jump right over it and leave your whatnot and your tits hanging out here and there, I personally do not care for that. I like my bits covered.  I was so excited to see this elegant but sexy minidress that I had to try it on and find some new heels and then…. …go to a psychic apparently. Don’t judge me. I’m feeling to pretty for all of that. Honestly I clicked on the “seductive” tp at Backdrop city but in my mind it had said “Romantic” and then half the sets were stripper poles and my brain was very confused. It’s quite early for this blonde girl. I was worried about how may of you might think the pole is romantic. “SEDUCTIVE” makes more sense. You may be wondering if this dress comes in any other colors besides red. Silly girl! of course it does.… Read the rest

Hot Bath and New Heels

One hot bath and a pair of new heels from Garbaggio and I’m ready to take on the world today. I’m enamored of these Georgia peeptoe shoes – I’m always a sucker for a cute pair that shows off my pedicure. I picked up this fun towel at Kurenai  – . 0nce again if you haven’t been to this event it’s super cool. Think a huge event but with stuff you haven’t seen rehashed 64763451 times and brands you don’t know forwards and backwards. Yeah I said it. The towel has several options depending on how sexy you need to be. Obviously I need to be super sexy all the time. Duh. Back to the shoes. They are so cute and my feet don’t even hurt. I love SL. You say to yourself “But Gidge, I want a lot of options. Does Garbaggio understand my need to wear these shoes in 72 different colors?” To which I say, “Oh sweet summer child…” You can find Garbaggio along with lots of other amazing things at Shoetopia which just kicked off yesterday.… Read the rest

I Awoke In A Magical Land

I don’t know how I got there, but I awoke in a magical land filled with beautiful shoes. Whether it was sneakers or the most painful heels – I found something for every style and taste. Waking up in such a wonderland was the perfect way to start my week. I traveled down it’s hallways to discover that everything was huge or perhaps I was terribly small. Was I in some giant’s lair? Or perhaps just in the grips of an event builder who knew how to make things big enough for people to see even with lag? Amazing how that works… I ran from display to display, giving my lindens as tribute to the powers that compelled me here. It is truly a wonder, so many shoes and so much variety inside one building. I traveled up and down the halls in amazement. I met another princess from a different kingdom and she too had found herself there suddenly. We both celebrated our good fortunes and bought even more shoes to show thanks for being there. When it was all said and done, I was heavy laden with the spoils of pure creative genius that are available at Shoetopia.… Read the rest

Hoppy Easter Or Some Other Overdone Trite Title

I love Easter and am delighted to be able to make you groan with silly pose sets and super trite blog titles. This is how I roll. Are you new here? WELCOME TO MY SLIFE I’m intensely silly. But to be serious – it’s EASTER folks and that means candy and pink/pastel explosion as far as the eye can see. I’m super, super into this, as you can imagine. I’ve found all the eggs the bunny left for me and now I’m ready for some treats! It’s going to be a great month I think. Well, I hope. If I can eat all this candy, that is. I am wearing a gorgeous skin from LEAGUE that I picked up at Skin Fair a couple of weeks ago. Ooof I forgot how lovely League can be. Note to self get League our more often.   I’m also wearing some adorable new flats from Ingenue and you can’t see them. WELL I’m just going to have to build a whole outfit around them for my next post aren’t I? #bloggerproblems. Happy Easter all. I hope your day is full of chocolate,renewal and love, in whichever order you prefer.… Read the rest

What’s Your Poison At The Arcade?

I have a troubling problem. I am addicted to the sweets that are created in SL. Maybe it’s not just because I love them in real life, but the more beautiful they are the more likely it is must have them. The ARCADE is a breeding ground for such creations and I have to admit, I love them for it. Wedding cake? I don’t need a wedding. I’ve got a cake. I’d rather have the cake, frankly. The Arcade, that bastion of goodness you didn’t know you needed, is closing tomorrow at midnight. All the lovely things will go away and you’ll have to wait three months. I on the other hand will be stuffing my face like a monster with these sweets. It’s not too late! Get over there before they are gone! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

I Might Have An Addiction

One of the things I love about The Arcade is it’s ever continuing magic when it comes to providing us with more things for the narrative of our individual SLs. For me, that narrative is chocked full of…..pets. My friend and fellow blogger visited the other day and said if it was a RL house it would smell, it was so full of pets. Alas it’s true. I’ve got this dog and that cat and the other thing, not to mention my Kittycats themselves. Give me your pets, your fishtanks, your sweet little loves to run around my house and make it less empty. I’m not alone when they are here. I love them all. They’re naughty. They keep me on my toes. Kitty almost knocked this pot into my beautiful Merpony aquarium. BAD BAD KITTY. But who really wants to live alone in SL? I wouldn’t trade the chaos for anything. Sometimes I just have to have them for no other reason than I CAN have them.  These bunnies just had to live with me, and I suppose I’ll have to watch the dogs.… Read the rest

The In Between

My first thought today was to find some sort of horrible St Patrick’s Day nightmare and blog it as though I thought it were fitting. But hell I’ve done that for almost a decade so I decide nah, let it go finally. I mean it’s not like Shamrock Pasties and butt plugs are in short supply on Marketplace, if one is so inclined.  Yet I just wasn’t feeling it. I guess I’m just in a “Let me stand in front of this giant bear holding an umbrella” sort of mood. What can I say? Skin Fair is open and today I’m sporting newness from Alaska Metro. I love Alaska because her work is always truly lovely, and as a skinner she never forgets things like nails. Have you ever worn her nails? They’re flawless. I’m wearing her Cora skin with her Babygoth eye makeup. I felt like mixing it up so I’m also wearing a neutral lip shade from Stellar. It’s a lovely matte tone. Lexi always does a great job with her lipsticks. Now, I’ve just been shopping and I have to do a lot of unpacking.… Read the rest

Slow Going

I made myself a nice breakfast in the hopes that it would inspire me to get moving and shaking today. I’ve got shopping and cleaning and lots of SLing to do. Alas, I’m sleepy and just want to sit here.   I’m heading out though, I’ve forced myself to get into the world even though let’s face it – it’s damn cold out here. WHY I ask must it be winter? Then I remember, because I asked Cajsa to make it be winter. Nevermind. I’ll guess I’ll take off my hair and get myself to Skin Fair. Happy Shopping girls. Have a great day. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Shangry not Hangry

Getting ready in the morning is never a trial yet, I have to admit I dread it. I never know what I’m going to be getting up to, so it’s hard to make an informed decision about what to wear. Fur? Cocktail dress? Jeans? I don’t know! I’m planning to go shopping. yet, adventure is often disguised as well laid plans. What to do what to do? I guess I’ll roll the dice and hope for the best.

So Much Arcade. Much Happy.

The Arcade threw open it’s doors this morning and I’ve made many an addition to my SLife because of it.  I probably don’t need more dogs in this house but here I am, now with Corgi Puppers hither and yon, looking like sweet babies everywhere I go. I couldn’t help it. PUPPERS!  It’s a snowy yucky night here on our island, but CAT here and I are cozy inside, just relaxing and trying to decide what sort of thing we want for dinner.  CAT has a weird white line on his neck, but hey, it’s CAT. Who am I to judge? I guess it’s just some positions his neck gets that line. I like him regardless. I couldn’t be expected NOT to pick up the Breakfast at Tiffany themed set I saw over at Boudoir. SO cute. Had to have. Now, I’ve got to rest my feet from all this ARCADE excitement – what are you must have items this go round? There are some wonderful things. This hair  I’m wearing today is from one of my favorites, DOE – and her back on it is just gorgeous.… Read the rest

No One Even Cares

I get that way sometimes when someone is blathering on in a crazy way. If ten people do the same thing you do without drama, and you are constantly being “dragged into drama” perhaps just perhaps …..it’s you. Some things this veteran old blogger can tell you which can, in fact, help you decrease your level of drama are as follows.
  1.  No one is copying your style. No one. If someone IS copying your style please refer to the first sentence. There is a limited number of heads, bodies, and clothes in this world. If someone happens to recreate what you did – or hell just likes the way you did it and dresses up like that too – IT DOES NOT MATTER. Your style is way more than the thinks you choose to wear.  If it’s not – you fail.
  2. If you aren’t getting paid you don’t have sponsors quit rambling on about it.
  3. You are not obligated to 23589723948 blog posts a day. If you DO that many blog posts a day don’t bitch about it.

Morning Stroll

I’m out early this morning checking out events and doing a bit of shopping. These t hings aren’t going to shop themselves, I tell you. I pulled out an old clutch from HANDVERK and I forgot I’ve got a few awesome bags from them, they’re going to be getting more use. This is why I don’t throw things out. THIS BAG IS SO CUTE. I wonder if they are still around? I need to find out! I’m in love with my new hair stylist exXess her blondes are amazing. If you’re a blonde girl and don’t go shopping there, run don’t walk. I took Luna this weekend and she was impressed. It’s not a new brand but for me it was one of those WOW WHEN DID THIS BRAND BECOME AMAZING moments. Those are good moments. I’m still playing with the beautiful Verity skin from Belleza.  I love the polished look of Belleza. They make me feel together and stylish even on a Monday. Now I’m going to take my femme AF self and get some more work done at my house.… Read the rest
