Belleza’s Goddesses

Belleza has released three new bodies and I’m about to show them to you. I’m going to be naked for a while, so try not to lose your damn mind. But I know that being naked is as important to some of you as drawing air so I felt like it was important to really show off the new bodies in their full curvy glory. Are you ready? Here we go. As you know a mesh body isn’t going to take over your shape but is going to shape itself along the curves of your shape. It is however, designed with it’s own LOOK – so as you can see Belleza has three different bodies out all three of which are varied versions of Gidge’s curves.  V3 is closes to what I consider “normal” Gidge – she’s not very curvy.  Freya is the curviest girl, and Isis is somewhere in between the two. I have to admit, I like Freya’s sexy. I have seen some HUGE asses blogged in this shape – and that’s indicative of whether or not you started out with a huge ass.… Read the rest

Shiny

BYRNE is a new to me clothing line by ByrneDarkly Cazalet. Some of you may be familiar with her because of her involvement in Kamera Klub, the monthly photographic event that has produced events like the BOSCH IN HELL recreation of The Garden of Earthly Delights or from the Tart Gallery. She is an occasional denizen of The Velvet where I DJ, so when I saw the store name BYRNE and inspected to see who was the greater, I was pleased and kind of amazed she found time for even more creative endeavors. She does not have a huge selection of clothing yet, but I liked what I found. She likes colors and prints and is a bold designer. This is actually one of her more subdued prints. The dress is a lovely naturalistic pink and green that makes you think of a lovely young forest with a splash of roses on the front. When you purchase the dress you get four dresses – one with pink roses, one with green roses, both with regular and materials finishes. I wore the Materials version which reacts so beautifully to light. … Read the rest150627_001

I Think There’s A Clown Behind Me

It all started because of the ink. Scrolling through the Eloquence blog at events the other day, I saw these really pretty tattoos for SLINK bod and thought I would like them. But then I opened up the blog today to find the event and found ANOTHER event (Creation JP) and well – I had to go to that. The next thing that happened was that Sasy went to the FIRST event (Kawaii Project Something I forget the name but maybe that’s the name I don’t know – oh there I linked it yes that’s the name) and she starts tossing me gacha extras. My old school gacha fever took hold and I started putting on everything I just had purchased and then some. It’s guerilla styling – PUT ON EVERYTHING YOU JUST BOUGHT NOW AND SHOOT! GO GO GO GO! Sasy recommended the mask as fascinator instead. She’s my Guerilla Styling Mentor. Ok I have to say I love this outfit. It’s so much fun. I took another shot with both DoF AND Bokeh added because, mandatory obv.… Read the rest

Saturday Part One

I’m up and dressed early and making my shopping list. I’m a list maker in both lives, and having the right list making tools is vital. I’m not a virtual list maker, I’ve had too many failures and said lists have been lost. I’m a writer on paper and my new notebooks from RC Cluster keep me perfectly organized. Today I’m hopping off to the Creation.jp event and hoping the Kawaii event is still open as there is some ink I wanted to look at. I’m going to spend too much money, it’s a fact. I need a new car while I’m out. Who knows! I might find one. Now, I’m off shopping. You go shopping too! Gidge is Wearing:

Petticoat Junction

  I do love a full, wide, pouffy skirt with layers of petticoats. It can have its disadvantages. I was wearing several layers of petticoats under a skirt at a barn dance once. I was sitting out a butterfly on some hay bales one night and a mouse ran across the hay and up the skirt, between the layers of petticoats. What with the netting being very nice for the mouse to grasp and the many layers to try to shake him out of, I must have spent 10 minutes jumping up and down on a hay bale trying to shake him loose. Of course, no mouse would dare come within striking distance of these spiked heels from Glamistry. They might be too dangerous for the speed of barn-dancing. Imagine stepping on someone’s toe. Fortunately, in Second Life® we do not have such banal concerns and I can wear my lethal weapon shoes without a care. I began this outfit with the gorgeous Carrie skirt with the Black Rose print. It comes in several other prints, including beautifully feminine florals.… Read the rest150624

The Market

My favorite farmer’s market in Portland is on the South Park Blocks. I love walking on the grass under the cool, shady trees. There’s something so much fresher and vibrant about that setting than the many other markets set up in concrete parking lots under the hot sun. There was one right next to my old apartment, less than a block away, and I still preferred the wonderful shady, tree-sheltered market downtown. Folks in Second Life® can put their markets anywhere they like, so I chose a grassy spot with trees. My dress is from Bomshire – a new to me store. It is a dress with a simple black top and a vibrant print skirt. I simply love it.
  My shoes are from Glamistry – picked up at the 21 Shoe event. If you are not setting an alarm in your calendar to ensure you don’t miss this 24 hour 2 for 1 shoe event, you are missing out on great bargains and beautiful shoes. This two for one comes in blue and yellow.    Glam Affair has a brand new skin called Eles which you can find at Shiny Shabby.… Read the rest1506230_002

Gone Fishing

Those Fisherman Pants from Zaara at The Arcade make me very happy. I have several pair, snatching them up for the gacha machine filled with party delights from Goa. I love how the Pixicat vest from Collabor88 this month goes so well with it that I had to try out a few variations.

fri.days sandals for Collabor88 are perfect for the pants as well, the casual flats fit the relaxed mood.
The shirt the goes under the Pixicat vest is just a mesh panel that you can tint, giving you a limitless choice. I tried different jewelry with the different outfits, but all the jewelry is from Mandala. The one with the layers and layers of coils comes with a hud for multiple color choices. Poses: Marukin

The heel has a cute pattern – reminds me of printed jeans.… Read the rest

Oh What A Beautiful Morning

Sometimes  what’s most liberating is surprising, isn’t it? Something you don’t expect to free you from something stressful suddenly does and BOOM – you realize you’re OK.  Life is good when that happens. I had that happen to me years ago, I lost a so called friend. I thought it was a pretty good girlfriend of mine, we talked every day and without realizing it thought I spent a lot of time defending her. “Oh people don’t know her like I do, she’s really sweet and funny.”  She was one of those people who uses truth to be hurtful – and uses lies as though they were truth. Having used truth so much and so blatantly, her lies were always believed. I didn’t realize they were lies at the time. There are two stages, in my experience, to losing someone that you really need to lose. The first one is a gut punch. You grieve. If you’re me you might cry. You feel bewildered and betrayed and foolish.… Read the rest

Under Electric Candlelight

The new Lola dress from Baiastice for Collabor88 is every kind of summertime perfection with wonderful summer colors and prints, lovely design details that highlight the feminine shape and flatter every figure. I love the rich texture of the ribbon inset, collar and bow. Even better, with the fitted mesh, it fits perfectly.

  One of the great things about using projectors, it’s very easy to make something interesting out of nothing. My “set” is just a few prim rectangles and a tube with a projector shining on them using a light leak. I actually put the light leak on a prim with a bit of glow as well. That’s the piece of art I am looking at.    Boom made these adorable flats for Collabor88 this month. They come in several colors, including some with contrasting bows.    The hair is from Exile – also at Collabor88 and it is truly Full of Grace in more than one sense of the words. The skin is a brand new release from Jalwa called Gazala and, as with all Jalwa skins, has a strong personality.… Read the rest150617_002

Sunset on Juicy

I decided to end my hectic day by sitting on my deck and just relaxing while the sun went down. What’s the point of living on an island if you don’t do this once in a while? My new deck chair from The Loft at Collabor88 this month is perfect for end of day chilling out, or any time really. I love it’s fun design and it’s texture change so I can mix it up. Were you excited to see Elika at this round of Collabor88 I really was. And now I’m going to relax and draw some stick figures. I really can’t draw. Happy Wednesday girls. Gidge Is Wearing:

My Schedule Was Full

I got dressed quickly this morning, with a list of errands and things I wanted to check out. I grabbed a new purse from The Annex (how cute is that?) and thought – I’ll quick post up those pics I shot days ago before our blog went down, and head out.  All in all, ten minutes knocking out a blog post before hitting the road seemed like a great plan. After all, I want to go to a few events before RL Gidge has to hit the road. That’s when it happened. My pictures, they weren’t in FLICKR. WHERE ARE MY PICTURES? I walked around to my office and there they were, in my hard drive where I had left them. It seems I’d taken them but never cropped them. I also had done my great blogger mistake – I had changed my clothes and not saved any of my fashion details. Did you hear that sound? That’s the sound of a blogger’s soul being wrenched apart by cruel fate. In fairness to me, the blog went down. I wanted to go listen to jazz and changed clothes the next day.… Read the rest

Experiment

Mami Jewell of Azul just released a beautiful limited edition outfit to elicit your inner fairy and feed your fantasies. It is called Pepeké and comes with a very revealing, short shift with wings, and butterflies and gossamer skirts. It is what dreams are made of, femininity, delicacy and romance. On the other hand, you can drop the fantasy elements and wear it as a loose and very sexy summertime blouse over a pair of pants. I love mixing things up, not wearing things right out of the box, and though mesh makes that more complicated; it is still possible and still a lot of fun.
The peach pants are a few years old, from One Bad Pixel. I had to drop down a size to make sure my backside did not show through the back of the top, but once it was fitted, it was perfect. I put on the Hucci summery sandals from Collabor88 again, using the hud to choose this irreverent and lighthearted option. As you can see, a few changes transforms the look and the mood of the garment from fantastical dreaminess to spunky and festive summer fun.… Read the rest150615_011

Summertime

The living is easy at Collabor88 and at June’s Arcade. With all sorts of summer offerings like fresh cut, juicy watermelon, ripening pears and big juicy strawberries, all of which can be found at the 8f8 Green Grocers Gacha at The Arcade. I get hungry just looking at it. I suspect it looks better than it tastes, though, since it is made of plywood. I have been spending a few days at the lake, renting a small cabin right on the shore. It’s been lovely. The cabins by Trompe Loeil are small but just the right size for a short getaway. They can be found at Collabor88. There are loungers from Trompe Loeil and The Loft on the deck for lounging to get some sun and enjoy the fresh breeze off the water. There’s a lovely built in bed from Ariskea and a desk set from Second Spaces that are comfortable and space saving. With a small kitchenette, it has all the comforts of home. Of course, a fashionista might have to rent a second one for the closet space. ROM JUNE ARCADE

Of Corrupted Databases, Cabbages and Kings

Regular readers of It’s Only Fashion will have missed us for the last two days. We had a corrupted database. From what I understand, it took a package from a North Korean agent in a black wool coat and dark glasses. Of course, anyone else would have known the agent was suspicious because it’s something like 90° and he’s wearing a black wool coat. Our database, however, was naive and unsuspecting. I hope it has learned its lesson. Perhaps though, like Thomas Bailey Aldrich, it was distracted by two petals falling from a rose: MY mind lets go a thousand things,
Like dates of wars and deaths of kings,
And yet recalls the very hour—
’T was noon by yonder village tower,
And on the last blue noon in May— 5
The wind came briskly up this way,
Crisping the brook beside the road;
Then, pausing here, set down its load
Of pine-scents, and shook listlessly
Two petals from that wild-rose tree. Thankfully I keep notes, so I remember what I was wearing when I took these pictures back before our database lost it way.… Read the restUntitled

Second Life Typology

Photos Nikolaidis of A.S.S. and made up a fun quiz for you to figure out what sort of Second Life® community member you are. Take the quiz here and let folks know your results and if you agree. For me, I got model, not blogger, which baffles me. However, I did buy that big headdress yesterday.

Queen of Everything

I am not the Queen of Everything, not even the Princess of Quite-A-Lot, but if I were, I might wear this gown – at least in the winter when it is cold. It might be a bit much on a hot, humid August afternoon. Do you ever wonder if those long ago aristocrats would feel twinges of envy for the peasants during the dog days of August, feeling every one of their layers of clothing and corsets and lacings?
  Thankfully, avatars are immune to humidity which is a good thing. That immunity allowed me to wear this stunning and regal gown from The Annex for We <3 Role-play, the monthly event that brings together the fashion and role-play communities. I do not role-play in Second Life, but I am not immune to the temptation to dress up as though ready to send forth my navy to conquer the world. I wore this with Slink Physique and the neckline was perfectly suited to the Physique alpha layers.   I wanted queenly jewels and a headdress to wear with this dress. My crown is completely anachronistic, but I am not role-playing, I am styling with elements that appeal aesthetically, not replicate historically.… Read the rest150611_001

Enough Is As Good As A Feast

Auntie Mame said those words and I believe very strongly in all things said by Auntie Mame. If the world were a perfect place, I would be Auntie Mame. Sometimes people write about what their SL fantasy is, perhaps they blog it – they’re a hunter or a goddess or a trashy slutty girl who has to put her goodies out on flickr for everyone to see 24/7. That’s their fantasy and I say go in peace, unless you don’t mark your goodies shots as adult on flickr and then well, I want to pinch your nerbs bcse that’s just rude. I watched Auntie Mame for the first time with my great uncle who was the male embodiment of Auntie Mame to me. He told me, as we settled down on his elegant ultra-modern and super uncomfortable sofa with popcorn and 7 Ups, how he took my mother to see it in the theater when it came out. He laughed and said that when my grandmother found out he’d done it, she didn’t speak to him for a week. SCANADLOUS! There’s an unwed pregnancy in it you see.… Read the rest

Beachy Keen

I am loving this side wrap dress from Ison. It comes in several summer colors as well as a few prints. I opted for this lovely blue, one of my favorite colors as I believe you can tell looking at the cabin and furnishings.
It’s a lovely day at The Lake. I grew up on a lake, just a few steps from the front door to the water and miss it very much. I would spend hours on the diving raft my dad put out in front of the house.  I have a lovely ice cream cone from Imeka and it’s almost as pretty as this necklace from LaGyo. It’s got a hud to change the textures so it has maximum flexibility. The bangle is from Noodles and like most of the items in this post, can be found at Collabor88. My shoes are very glam, so it’s appropriate that they come from Glamistry. Glamistry has a cool feature that allows you to purchase additional colors that get added to your color-change HUD, so that over time you can get a fat pack and still have the inventory-savings of buying it all at once.… Read the rest150610_004
