Angel of The Arcade

I spent my morning at the blogger preview for The Arcade and I have to confess, again I’m so amazed at all of the beautiful things being offered. This post isn’t about those things. One of the other things I’m always enamored of is how gorgeously the event is landscaped. It’s a beautiful build in a magical, almost otherworldly setting. I love to just walk around take in the scenery, relax as I watch the waves roll in. My look today comes from Collabor88 which is still celebrating it’s birthday and there is a dizzying array of pretty things for the having this month. My dress is from Blueberry – I love the angel wings touch. Makes me feel heaven sent. The ARCADE opens in two days – are you ready? Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Give me flowers, lots of flowers

Pixicat’s Ambrosia dress for Collabor88 is a dream for flower lovers and isn’t that everyone? The HUD lets you change the color of the flowers and the dress. I went for white with black flowers, loving the drama, but I could have chosen pastels, bold red and blue or even white. Each choice gives the dress a different emotional tenor. Then I can change the color of the dress, too. So much choice. I like the fitted bodice and full skirt. It’ a very feminine and romantic shape. Isn’t that bodice gorgeous? The sheer sleeves are a bit tricky. In some poses the arms poke through but only the left arm, the right arm never pokes through. But as you can see, most of the time the left arm is perfectly fine. Glamistry has been busy releasing new shoes. These were released in July and I love the delicacy of the laces. This is a new mesh head from Genesis called Adeline, just released at Collabor88. The earrings are bold chandelier style earrings from Modern Couture for Collabor88 as well.… Read the restSnapshot_003

Polygon-a-doodle all the day

This fun dress from SPIRIT is a winner in my book. There is a HUD that allows you to change the top and the skirt independently, so this could be all print, all solid, and mixed as you see here. The gap on the midriff is echoed on the back. I like the retro sensibility of the print.
These shoes from Pure Poison are pure magic. They come with a HUD that allows you to select the color of the base, and the two different lace colors that form front of the shoe. These are not to be missed. My hair is a lovely drift of waves from Clawtooth. The earrings are from Minimal, bold chandeliers with several options. The skin is YUMI from Glam Affair. ****SHOPPING LIST******

#FlatLarry Visits Campaign Headquarters

I was shocked and heartbroken to hear that Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show has been cancelled and will broadcast its final show on Thursday. While I do not always agree with Larry, I respect his humanity so much. He has the decency to be completely serious when the situation calls for it, to take a stand. I respect that. He brings new voices to the air, funny, smart people who will be missed. So #FlatLarry and I set off for the Second Life version of the Unblackening, checking out the different campaign headquarters. It was uncanny how completely each campaign headquarter captured the essence of the candidates and their campaigns. Here we are at Hillary’s campaign HQ. Notice how well prepared and planned it is. There’s plenty of signage, lots of balloons and it’s perfectly finished and decorated.

And like her campaign, there are not a lot of people in the audience, because they are out making phonically and canvassing. The campaign HQ is quiet, but organized and effective.… Read the restVisiting Campaign HQ with #FlatLarry

When Someone Shows You How They Feel

I like the old adage “When someone shows you how they feel, believe them.” I have probably spent far too many hours believing the words that didn’t match the actions in this life, and finally at my ripe old avatar age I’ve found a way to realize that this adage is more true than I ever imagined. I’m surrounded by people who show me and that’s the best feeling ever. I don’t have to wonder, or second guess, or ever try sort out why the actions and words don’t match. It’s calming, to be around so much sanity and to be with people who make me feel confident and stronger  Sometimes a small cull, closing a door here or there, can turn the wheel so hard that your life turns upside down. You can see what was stuck under your sofa more easily that way. There is nothing better than being this girl right now. Happy Sunday girls. Go SHOPPING! Shopping is second to being me. Totally fun though. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

So Girly It Hurts

I can’t help it. I’m a girly girl. But even my girly self couldn’t resist this hot release at Collabor88 from Fawny. I’m feeling kind of girl and TOUGH now that I take a good look.  Those hanging beads, the likes of which Greg Brady would covet, are available from COLLABOR88 this month from Maxi Gossamer. What a fun release! Now, I’m trying to decide what to do now that I’m all suited up. Ideas? Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Collabor88 Is Setting Up…Are You Ready?

I’m wandering the streets of this little coastal town,exploring in some casual comfort from Collabor88’s AUGUST edition. It’s a beautiful round so far, I think you’re going to enjoy it a lot.  The masquerade style sunglasses from Commoner tickled my fancy this morning so I brought them along, even thought it’s a cloudy day around here. My dress today is from  Mutresse who is releasing it with a HUD with a bajillion little options to tweak and make it your own. My hair and jewelry are ALSO from Collabor88  I’m feeling kind of peachy and persimmony on this Sunday morning,as you can see. Collabor88 will open up tomorrow on the 8th as usual and it’s going to be a great big one. 120 vendors will be there to kick off this birthday edition of Collabor88 so you know it’s NOT to be missed. Now, I’ve got to do something exploring and dust off the cobwebs of my brain. I’ve been homebound too many days.… Read the rest

I’m Walkin’….Except I’m Not

There are some bloggers who do an amazing job of reflecting a variety of skin tones when sharing new releases from creators. I’m not one of them. I think my instinctual nod would go to Sydd Sinister. There are probably others. I’m always impressed with the amount of effort it takes to make a gorgeous contact sheet style post showing all the options with a skin or hair release. I decided to shake myself up and choose a totally different skin tone for myself, simply because in Second Life we can be whomever we want. I’m wearing a tone called Cocoa from Alaska Metro that you can pick up at Mesh Body Addicts event. Belleza recently updated their bods, so be sure to check those out if you haven’t already. As for me, well I haven’t been able to get Gidge to be able to WALK for the past two days so I’m pretty sure she’s just going to have to ride around on this Flamingo forever. Don’t mind me. I’ll be dragging this through events.… Read the rest

Brevity is the soul of lingerie

Dorothy Parker always knew exactly what to say and her wit sparkled. I love her quip about lingerie even more than I love this lingerie which is quite a lot. It’s covered up by the sheer Reva cover-up from Zaara, though bits peek through. Just keeping the front page SFW. This was released at June’s Collabor88 so will be at the store now. The fairy lights are from Floorplan and can be found at Collabor88 for three more days.

Luxuria’s Briony lingerie is an applier-based set that works with Slink, Maitreya and Omega systems. It comes in all sorts of colors and two florals, one in black and this rose one. There’s a blue and white version as well. You can find them at The Gacha Garden. Speaking of brevity. From the back, it’s therely bare. I slipped on these flat from Ingenue. They are at the July Collabor88 which is wrapping up on the 6th, so time is running out. Get thee there. The necklace from Yummy is also a Collabor88 release. It allows you to put your own pictures in it and I put in a pic of my mom and one of my mom and her mother.… Read the restBrevity is the soul of lingerie.

The Love We Think We Deserve

Moments happen unexpectedly. Sometimes you can be just talking and you realize connections are forming, bonds are tightening and you didn’t see them coming at all. It’s those moments that can be bliss, joy, and all the other breathless good things that come from unexpected happiness. I don’t mind getting up early to log some studio time when I wake up knowing it’s another day of adventure and good things. Today is just another step on an unexpected road. I had thought I had missed the rest of this month’s Collabor88 and was a little down about it, I’m excited to realize it’s only the 2nd. These beautiful memory jars are available still at Collabor88 from Schadenfreude. There are several styles, and they’re perfect for sharing and storing some of your favorite SL memories. Now, let’s make this a great day girls. Gidge is Wearing:

What? Behind The Rabbit?

I heard there was danger here but all I’ve found are these bunnies. they’re adorable, scampering about. They’re perfect for prepping for some Easter pictures in my opinion. SWEET little bunnies. You might be tempted to think these are just run of the mill ordinary bunnies. Well no, they’re no ordinary rabbits. In fact, they’re the most foul, cruel, bad tempered rodent you ever set your eyes on. Look that rabbit’s got a vicious streak a mile wide! He’ll do you up a treat, mate. Killer bunnies.

Smooching Tuli Right In The Face

Tuli is back for Skin Fair and bringing us new pretty faces. She’s got appliers for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza bodies I was delighted to see.

Only for you! And I love you guys, make Lelutka appliers so I can love you every day! I’m never happy at skin fair time unless I splice up a couple of different makeups on my face.  So there you go. Tuli makes the prettiest lips, I do love them. Almost makes me love the default head. ALMOST SO CLOSE.

#FlatLarry and Me


I am behind the times this week. I was catching up on last week’s The Nightly Show tonight and cracked up at this member of the audience who made off with a giant flat Larry, taking it home nonchalantly on the subway. He asked the thief to take #FlatLarry around and share on Twitter. Well, I didn’t steal the original #FlatLarry, but I found one on the web and set him out in front of The Drunk Tank, one of the amazing builds in DRD’s Steel Town – and entire city in a gacha.

If I had known I was going to be hanging out with #FlatLarry, I might have dressed a bit more professionally, but somehow I think he might just like this Karma dress from PixiCat. With the texture hud, it can also switch to a smooth, shiny leather.


The PixiCat dress comes in a wide range of colors and two lengths. This is the short one. Most have a print trim derived from Indian motifs, but this rare one is a solid black.

In keeping with the Karma theme, PixiCat also released a series of black or colorful elephants in different poses as well as ones to hold or who walk with you as a companion.… Read the rest#FlatLarry @ The Drunk Tank

Have Truck Will Travel

The Stepside truck at the Arcade this round is big enough to hold all of my luggage which is perfect. I can head out in complete comfort, plus it’s rugged enough for the wild terrain of even say, mainland! I am going to bring along my new little bulldog. Isn’t she adorable? She’s also from THE ARCADE this round from Birdie. She’s got an option for roses or no – but honestly I can’t imagine her without the roses! What madness!! It’s a weekend adventure that awaits! gidge is wearing:

Hunt and Peck

I have to confess that this harpsichord was at the top of my MUST HAVE items from The Arcade. I immediately knew I had no room for it and thus would MOVE to make it so, or would simply discard other loved items. I decided on the latter. Because – HARPSICHORD. The hud comes with three color options, and the choice of a painted inner lid or not.  It’s so classically lovely I couldn’t resist. My birdies are from…BIRDIE also from the Arcade this month. My understanding is that you Potter fans will like them the most – I never saw any of that, so for me they’re just pretty and that’s good enough! My hair is another win from new to me [INK] – I just love their contributions this round to the event. Now, I’m going to relax and enjoy my fancy new decor, from Fancy Decor. Gidge Is Wearing:
