Blueberry, Foxy Collab



      Blueberry collaborated with Foxy this week to make this hooded dress and two perfectly designed hairstyles that you can wear underneath. You can wear the dress with the hood up or down. You can also wear the Foxy hair by itself as a hoodie fit and traditional fit are both included in your hair purchase. You can find these at both the main Blueberry and Foxy stores. 
      I am so ready for Spring and so is the annual event- Spring Flair that just opened yesterday. Reign is there with the Dahlia sandals. I love the ties and the big flower. So perfect for Spring!



        Cae released this jewelry set with coordinating jeweled glasses at the current round of faMESHed. You get 20 textures for the glasses and the jewels are 15 multi-texture change via HUD. The metals also change to gold, silver, and bronze.

The Arcade Closes at Midnight Saturday

“This was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one. There were still plenty left running to keep the air over Detroit filled with that choking industrial aptitude, but you were never far from a hollowed-out factory, massive steel tubes on the roofs pointing up toward the sky with nothing left inside but dust and cobwebs. These giant pillars of concrete and metal now jutted high like extended index fingers from broken and casted hands, pointing toward something they would never touch.”
― Michael A. Ferro, TITLE 13: A Novel
The Arcade closes at midnight Saturday and if you let that happen without picking up the fabulous industrial pieces from NOMAD, you will miss out. The gacha has the delicious name of My Cozy Little Industrial Facility that cracks me up in the best possible way.

While I love the gacha sets and have that completionist compulsion that busts my budget, but when styling an outfit, I always resist using the set.… Read the restThis was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one

New from NYU, but only available until the 25th.

NyuNyu Moon has this lovely qipao (cheongsam) at Kurenai.It comes in eight options, this brocade in red and black, plus six pastel and vibrant florals. This is exclusive to Kurenai which ends tomorrow, so if you don’t rush over there now, you won’t get another chance. Of course, many people make cheongsam’s but few have the excellent rigging and quality construction of NYU.
I wanted to wear gold shoes with this dress and immediately went to my Slink shoe folder because nobody makes a truer gold for shoes. I love how the Hera wrap heel wraps at the same angle and direction as the dress fastening. The hair was from D!va at Collabor88 last month. It’s still as gorgeous this month. Glam Affair released Deiene (I checked the spelling) at Collabor88 for February. This is a great face with beautiful brows and gorgeous eye shadows. The earrings were at January’s Cosmopolitan and are from Kunglers. ****SHOPPING LIST******

I‘ll Burn That Bridge When I Come to It

The Secret Store released a luscious skirt and top at Collabor88 in a wide range of colors. Fashions have become increasingly risque, with transparent fabrics and laces over opaque pieces that would have been lingerie a decade ago. It is one of those fashions that require discernment on the part of designers as it can easily veer toward overexposure and bad taste. In the sure and certain hands of Maylee Oh, though, it is on trend without crossing that line into tacky. How does she avoid the pitfalls? The waist is high enough to cover the navel and the cut of the legs are not too “cheeky.” The bra top is not so skimpy that there is any risk of nip slips and other exposure. This outfit reveals without exposing.


I am kind of in love with this backdrop from Gabriel. I might love it even more if it’s floor came in two options so I could just use it as a bridge across the stream on our land.

I also adore these Mary Jane pumps with a bow. They bring together the cuteness of a Mary Jane with the sexiness of pumps.… Read the restI'll burn that bridge when I cross it.

A Quick Trip to Greenland

I stopped by Groenland today for a short visit. Most of the mass of Greenland is ice, but not on this sim. I guess it’s in one of the areas where the ice has been melting. It reminded me of “Rotten Ice” an excellent article in Harpers by Gretel Ehrlich. It seemed appropriate during the cold snap affecting much of America which prompted the popular-vote-losing President to show he does not know the difference between climate and weather. Sadly, far too many politicians don’t know the difference or they pretend not to know. Sometimes it’s hard to believe they are that ignorant, then I listen to Louis Gohmert and realize there’s no such thing as not too ignorant. I dressed warmly with the sweater dress from AMD Designs, a knit body suit from Sn@tch, and fabulous boots from Osmia. Wait until you see them in the next picture. These rare boots from Osmia allow you to choose the fur trim color, the socks (plain or print), the soles and the boots themselves.… Read the restCuriosity that inborn property of man, daughter of ignorance and mother of knowledge when wonder wakens our minds, has the habit, wherever it sees some extraordinary phenomenon of nature, a comet for example, a sun-dog, or a midday star, of asking straigh

Great Minds Thinking Alike

Gidge is my favorite person in Second Life and among my favorites in my first life, too. So, it’s no surprise we sometimes think alike and dress alike. Our mutual love for this dress from Nylon Outfitters was unplanned, but you know, I thought about reshooting with a different color, but I changed my mind. I like the black one best, and really, it’s a case of great minds thinking alike. By the way, if you like this dress, get yourself over to Collabor88 now because it’s the last day. I don’t like candy corn, but these critters crack me up. One of my favorite items from The Arcade this month. It’s amazing how they with their simplistic form still manage to express emotions. There’s some popcorn for all the drama from Lost Junction and a fun plastic table and stools from PLAAKA – all at The Arcade. I think they could be dangerous. The Yummy necklace and earrings crack me up as well, and I think they are perfect with this dress.… Read the restAll the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911. Lewis Black

Brilliant Friends

I just read two books back to back that made me realize there is this whole genre of books with a similar form. I have read many of them over the years, but never realized what they were. I decided to call this genre Brilliant Friends books after Elena Ferrante’s magical Neapolitan Quartet and its first book My Brilliant Friend. The stories are all told by an adult woman looking back on an intense high school friendship that was formative, changing their lives in some way or another. The narrator is the more subdued friend, the quiet one, the follower who is remembering the brilliant, defiant, bold, brave and ultimately tragic friend. Tragedy can take many forms, not just death, but always, the narrator ends in a better place than the brilliant friend. Thinking about it, both the books I just read (Marlena and Please Proceed to the Exit) fit that model but not just them. There’s The Girls by Emma Cline, The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel, even All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda, a mystery has the brilliant friend disappear, runaway or murder victim.… Read the restPlease Proceed to the Nearest Exit

Here and Gone

I am usually ambivalent about jumpsuits. In my first life, I think they are annoying. They are not particularly flattering and seriously, who wants to almost completely undress every time they go to the restroom? But we don’t pee in SL, so bodysuits are not so ridiculous here. And when the body suit is this beautifully architectural, then all of a sudden I am down with bodysuits.
The Mirima shoes from Ingenue are not only the right height and color, the lovely curving of the strap give them the same architectural finesse that the bodysuit enjoys. Seriously, look at the ad from Ingenue, look at the bodice of the jumpsuit. A great updo (Imani) from Truth, wrecking ball earrings from Kunglers, as well as some bracelets and a ring, and subtle, but strong makeup from Glam Affair and I am set for my book review of Here and Gone. ***SHOPPING LIST******

One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

 Narcissi has released a perfect summer outfit at Vintage Fair. These shorts and tops come in two sets, pastels and brights. The pastel shorts set also has several gorgeous prints, fun vintage prints.  I took to the trees because I was doing a book review of a book called The Solace of Trees that I reviewed on my book blog and on YouTube. It’s about refugees and it is timely, important, and not terribly well done.   I had a lot of fun switching and playing with all the colors in these adorable shoes by Mutresse. They were released at Collabor88. My hair is from Vanity Hair. It’s called Same Girl and was released as Shiny Shabby. My makeup is from Glam Affair is Kendal and at Collabor88. The earrings are from LaGyo. ****SHOPPING LIST******

The Arcade brings sunshine and flowers

I was looking for a quote for my pictures and came across “Keep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.” It was attributed to Walt Whitman which struck me as bizarre. It does not sound the least bit like Whitman. Whitman wrote things like “Give me the splendid silent sun, with all his beams full-dazzling!” The internet is good for many things, but it’s been a disaster to those who want proper attribution for quotes. Thankfully there are those who are combatting error like The Quote Investigator. The Arcade has arrived and with June comes sunshine and flowers, not just outdoors, but even on the wall. I shot these pictures in the small attic bedroom at the top of Scarlet Creative’s romantic Daisy Weathered House at The Arcade. With ivy and moss on the walls and roofs, delicate floral wallpaper and so many gables it would make Nathaniel Hawthorne jealous, this house is everything.
I am wearing a one-shouldered sundress from !Go¡ that has lovely stylized flowers embroidered on the ruffle with tassels.… Read the restKeep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.

The new minidress from ALT by TRUTH is all kinds of shiny. It comes with several color options, but the many metallics were my favorite thing. Another favorite thing, the glorious twist and roll pullback hair style by TRUTH called Avery/Elena It was all so luscious, I pulled out the champagne. Please note the lovely shoes from Thalia Heckroth™ that allow you to choose the color of the sides and heels and the toecaps. Glam Affair released a bold gorgeous necklace. And here you see that wonderful hair from the front. That delicate Jinga skin from Glam Affair is just exactly what I wanted.

In Riding a Horse, We Borrow Freedom

I thought I blogged this a week ago. Oops! First, I have to deal with the quote I used for the title. The internet is a disaster for quote lovers and this is an example of why. Which Helen Thompson? My guess this quote may have come from the wife of the race horse trainer, David Thompson. I am pretty darn sure it did not come from this Helen Thompson and by the way, I am even more sure that fifth quote is also one that belongs to the woman whose life was in racing, not the psychologist studying gender differences who was born in 1874.
I love these sexy booties from Glamistry, though of course, these are functional for walking around pixel barnyards only. I paired this fun summertime Rodeo shirt from Gizza with a fun, embroidered pair of jeans from Liziaah. I am loving this Cheri hair from Truth, with one ear free to show off my CAE earrings and necklace. I have had them for a few years now and still love them. There’s a fragility and delicacy to this Kinga skin for Lelutka from Glam Affair.… Read the restIn Riding a Horse, We Borrow Freedom
