Subtlety

I like subtle shifts in tone. As much as I love rich saturated colors, I also love the neutral tans, beiges, and ecrus. The ALT Cadet Dress comes with a color change HUD that lets me choose bold colors or subtle ones. I gravitated toward the subtle this time. Except for the tights. They are not so subtle. From Izzie’s these applier tights come with Maitreya and Slink appliers. The Xian boots from Hucci also come with a color change HUD, so no matter what dress color I chose, the shoes would fit. I am wearing Glam Affair’s Misha applier for my skin with AlaskaMetro eyeshadow and lip appliers. The jewelry si from Kunglers and the hair is from TRUTH. ****SHOPPING LIST******

Giant Hunting

I have heard tales that in some lands there are giants and dragons. I suited up for cold weather, brought my guard dog and went in search of one. After all, giants! Who could imagine such a thing. And what do you know? I found one! Not much of a guard dog if he lays down and chills when we actually FIND a dragon, though, is he? Good grief. Oh well, I met a giant. I think he wanted to make fuck but you know, I had to go wash my hair, or something. “Or Something” is a cockblock for a lot of fellas. Sorry guys. Not really. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Hello Cold Weather

December is here and that means Christmas! and The Arcade! and it is up for debate which is more exciting. It’s so easy to go the red and green route for the holidays, but I resisted, buoyed by the gorgeous Camellia lights from {anc} over in the corner. I went for pinks and turquoises, think Miami meets Idaho. I liberally used the edit menu to tint my furnishings just a bit and even retexture a few things such as the runner on the side table. I know it’s a blend of modern and traditional that should clash, but it doesn’t. I think of Simon de Pury when I decorate, “Be bold, be brave, be amazing.” Why not mix modern settees with traditional cupboards and folk art and deco end tables? If you can make harmony of contradiction, then it’s not just bold, it is amazing. Speaking of amazing, I love the Bauwerk Dall, a carved deer with exaggerated legs and a sleek, minimalist form. I placed several deer statues in the house, they are such beautiful animals.… Read the restHello Cold Days

Dear Santa I Can Explain – I FOUND The Baby

The Patchwork Lodge from PLAAKA at this round of Arcade is definitely one of the MUST HAVEs from this round. It’s a gorgeous light filled wonder and I only wish it was bigger. It’s truly lovely. I’m taking the night off to relax in it’s rustic wonder, enjoying the view and relative peace of this space. Enjoying the peace and quiet is a surefire way for something to go wrong, and right about the time I felt like for SURE I was about to stretch out for a nap.. I heard a noise. The cats heard it too. I had to go outside and investigate and well… I found an angel baby. HOW SWEET IS THIS? I kinda love it. I want clothes for it. All my goodies today are coming up in this next round of THE ARCADE! Are you ready? Itsonlyfashionblog.com

The Arcade Is Coming

I’ve surrendered my lindens to the Gods of the Arcade and I have NO regrets. My cup runneth over with joy and happy. The things I deleted have been replaced with new, wonderful things and I’m ready for the season of happy! Some of my first pass loves are the amazing folk art pieces for the kitchen from The Secret store and these HUSKIES from Jian. Oh gosh there are so many and SO SO SO CUTE. Thanks to Second Spaces I’ve pulled out my good bakeware and I’m going to be ready to cook once I get everything sorted out in my kitchen. It’s a little hectic in there.  But with such pretty new things to cook with, I’m looking forward to it. But before I do anything, I’m gonna just nap a little. So much shopping and unboxing makes me a tired girl for sure. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

A Sound of Thunder

There was a downpour yesterday, raining so heavy that at times it looked like it was dark out during the day. While it was cold, grim, and miserable outside, inside was warm with food, friendship, and the fellowship of good company. Countering the gray, cloudy rain, there was a bright yellow sun in the form of this lovely minidress from Decoy for Collabor88. I have been thinking of A Sound of Thunder a lot lately. It is a short story by Ray Bradbury that I read in 8th grade English along with a few other unforgettable Ray Bradbury stories. Some folks go back in the past to hunt dinosaurs with the world heading in one direction and return with the world headed very differently. It is the only thing that makes sense of this crazy month. Don’t you love this lace up shoes from fri.day for Collabor88? My hair is from Stealthic, also for Collabor88. This is my first introduction to Stealthic and I love the red shades. My jewelry is from Kunglers, the necklace can be found at Shiny Shabby and the rings at Cosmopolitan.… Read the restA Sound of Thunder

OMG I Have To Clean My Inventory… The ARCADE is Coming

There is nothing I dislike more than when it’s time to divest myself of my THINGS, unless it’s because it’s almost time to get MORE things. I like More things. More things is good. I sat down this morning with a cuppa and my great big inventory and though self, let’s make some room. I realized very quickly that it MIGHT be easiest to start with deduping the chaos of my multiples of same items. Then I went on to SYSTEM skins. Oh system skins, you were good to me. You were so so so good to me. And now, now you’re like used saran wrap. I can’t put you on anymore. I felt pangs as I rifled through folders Cajsa set up for me years ago – folders that were truly set up for me to use and I’m an asshole and mostly didn’t and so, everything in them was obsolete and system and THUS = DELETE. But still, the number was barely moving. I was going to have to get ruthless. I was going to have to start deleting things that…gasp….I used to love.… Read the rest

It’s Written In The Stars

This gorgeous jacket and long skirt from Baiastice is still available at COLLABOR88 this month and I think both pieces are a must have. You can’t see the shoes she also put out for this round because for reasons I can’t divine I cropped them out, but they’re very kicky. I like’m. I really do like this new hair from Truth also, I’ve opted to add the soft wispy bangs, it’s a great look for evening or casual. I hope you aren’t too stuffed from all your Thanksgiving feasting!

To fly we have to have resistance

Resistance is not futile. Resistance gives flight to hope and defies despair. Resistance reminds us that we are a better nation when we embrace social and racial justice. While the arc of history just got a big kink in its bend toward justice, it still bends. We have lived experience that gay rights, women’s rights, civil rights and human rights are empowering, not weakening our country. They cannot erase that knowledge, the lived experience of Americans who saw that gay rights bring joy, that trans liberation brings freedom, that women’s rights brings advancement, that immigrant rights bring progress, and that human rights bring progress. They can try to take away those rights, but the living experience of our people prove their crabbed and cruel vision of the future is a lie. We will prevail in the long run. They are on the wrong side of history which is why even their temporary victory fills them with rage instead of celebration. Meanwhile, we can still enjoy life…and fashion.… Read the restTo fly we have to have resistance

It’s The Little Things Which Irritate

I have no reason for complaint today. I’ve got a beautiful new vanity set from SOY at Collabor88, amazing new jewelry, hair and dress from Collabor88 and really this pixel girl has no reason for for annoyance. The world is my oyster, the world is my delicious sandwich made to order. Yet, my annoyance today slithers into my sights from a flickr group from which I got a flickr mail a long time ago. I should, in fact, leave this group. I can never remember to. I’m a busy pixel girl, these toes aren’t going to paint themselves you know, and so I get busy and forget. I also don’t generally READ flickr mail so if you send me one, be prepared for it to be six months before I see it.  This one however both irritated and amused me. I got a note telling me that the flickr group I was posting photos to would no longer be accepting my photos and that if I wanted to post those sort of photos I should get a blog. That’s me going …..”ummm what?”. You see, the entirely of that self same flickr group is made up of blog photos from my peers.… Read the rest

Such a Nasty Woman

It is Election Day at long last. Elections in America are far too long and of course, the campaigns in the commentariat are even longer. After all, there’s already speculation and talk about 2020 before 2016 is decided, because the media would rather talk horse races than policy. This is the first truly existential election since 1860. People who complain that the election is not about issues this year are wrong. It’s just that the issues on the ballot are not the issues we are used to voting on—whether we are a free country or an authoritarian one, whether the United States controls it foreign policy or follows the dictates of a former KGB agent, and whether we want to continue as a democratic republic or are ready to just give it all up and hand it over to a despot. Thwse are the issues of this election and they could not be more important. I am wearing suffragette white even though I voted two weeks ago. I am excited to be electing the first woman president.… Read the restSuch a Nasty Woman

Being Happy Never Goes Out Of Style

I’m as excited as a cartoon girl can be about the new month of Collabor88 that just kicked off this month. CREATURES OF THE NIGHT calls to mind so many different things, not the least of which can be sexy lingerie for a girl who just needs ONE MORE SET. That’s me of course. This hairstyle from EXILE, also at Collabor88 is perfect, I am not sure I’m going to take if off any time soon. My typist is considering some curls for her day now too. This lingerie I’m wearing comes in a great variety of bodies, like yesterday’s clothes. I’m wearing FREYA body by Belleza this week. I’m also back in my Lelutka head, I feel like she’s more ME. If you like to switch it up with your eyes, Poetic Colors has this new freebie out. Pretty! Happy Tuesday everyone. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

24 Hours Until November Collabor88 Kicks It

The creators are setting up and it’s almost time for November’s Collabor88 which kicks off on the 8th. A welcome distraction from the events going to occur in the US on that date!

Maitreya Lara
Belleza Venus
Belleza Isis
Belleza Freya So you Belleza girls who have trouble finding clothes sometimes – HEADS UP! I’m wearing great new platforms from Fri.Day which will also be available tomorrow.

I’m wearing one of the hombre tones in blonde. I need to change out of this body and head for some variety but another look at the new skin Morgana from Adam n Eve for CATWA.… Read the rest

Last Chance for October’s Collabor88

If there are any pieces at Collabor88 that are MUST HAVE in your book now’s the moment. The doors will be shutting for a reset and November goodies will be raining down on us like mana from heaven. Or something. As for me, I’ve lost my groove somewhere. Clearly I put this on before Halloween, planning to post around 7 days ago but life got in the way for my typist. Hopefully I’ll get it back.

Adam n Eve n Things For (the) Fall

Fall is sweeping the US and most of us not on the upside down part of the earth. My typist had taken a much needed brain break and had left me to my own designs for quite a while but luckily the cozy good things at Collabor88 this month kept me warm and also quite pretty. Among the other great things that have happened in SL, one of my favorite skinners Sachi Vixen released appliers for Catwa called MORGANA. I’m wearing her tone called TA – or as I like to call it, pasty white girl. I like the options she gives with her appliers, but I wish her HUD was bigger – I can’t actually read any of the words on my screen. I just click till i sort out what they are. That doesn’t matter in the end when the result is this pretty. I’m channeling my friend Alicia Chenaux with a huge smile this Sunday morning. What’s not to smile about? I’m the luckiest avatar in the world. I hope your week is going amazingly girls, and remember – Collabor88 has great Halloween stuff too and it’s still there for you!… Read the rest

Apply Yourself

This Verushka dress from Liziaah is striking in its details – all very architectural and rigid, but intricate and complex – a baroque form of modernism. It is also unusual in its construction. With the advent of mesh, we have lost the old form of system layers and while we often use appliers for lingerie or layering, there are few people making clothing using appliers and mesh pieces. Liziaah is one of those few. This dress is applied and the dreaded flap for the skirt is added, however, since this is mesh, not prim, it has not of the flaws of past. It conforms to movement, it reacts to the light the same as the applied textures. In the end, it makes a beautiful dress that is form-fitting in ways that mesh cannot achieve.

Verousha is a form-fitting dress with a corset-like top and a pencil skirt. The sheer neckline is embellished with a mesh neck corset embellished with pearls and feathers. The laces and chains in the Hyacinth shoes from Glamistry echo design elements in the dress.… Read the restNature is the inspiration for all ornamentation.
