Pink Makes Everything Pretty

Altair’s dress for Collabor88 is as flirty as it can be. It comes in a range of colors and with a HUD to change the colors of the bow and the ribbon at the babydoll waist and the hem. I chose pink because pink makes things pretty.  This dress is all about the legs.  Which makes it great for showing off gorgeous shoes.  Exile’s hair is great for showing off everything, including the lovely jewelry from Minimal and the fabulous Amaya skin from Glam Affair. **SHOPPING LIST******

Lazy Days with Collabor88 and The Arcade

It’s a good think I got this gorgeous rare bed from the DRD gacha at The Arcade because it’s perfect for lazing about and so are some of the new releases from Collabor88
OMG, look at how worn this little dress from Hucci is! I am embarrassed to confess that I have one just like this except it’s pale blue. My best friend once told me, “Most people throw their sleepwear away when it has more than three holes in it.” She just does not know how incredibly soft a twenty year old sleep dress can be. And you know what, I wear a sweater with my sleep dress, too. My sweater is way too big and totally soft, too. Mine is teal. I thought about wearing those colors but thought it was just too similar, especially with the bed head. And flip flops, too! I like flip flops better than slippers which are often too warm. I wear them in the house all the time. I am not one for wearing leg warmers though, but they are gorgeous. I love this hair from Moon. It’s perfect for the outfit I am wearing.… Read the rest“Sometimes, when we cannot attain the freedom we are fighting for, we free ourselves by carving a new path to freedom.”

If you’re going to do something tonight that you’ll be sorry for tomorrow morning, sleep late.

Henny Youngman once said, “If you’re going to do something tonight that you’ll be sorry for tomorrow morning, sleep late.” It makes me sort of want to see one of his routines. I kind of think this little romper might lead to doing things tonight…so I will sleep late. You can find your own in Birdy’s gacha at The Arcade. Be sure to sleep late.


Coming or going, it’s delightful.

The shoes are from Ingenue and available at The Arcade which opened today.

Can you believe I got the RED hair on the very first pull in Clawtooth’s gacha at The Arcade? I was thrilled. I also was pretty lucky with the Birdy gacha, not getting a pile of duplicates.

The rings are from Yummy and also at The Arcade. I love the intricate details. My skin is Glam Affair’s Chloe made for the new Chloe Bento head from Lelutka. Glam Affair released several eye and lip makeup appliers that are worth a deep dive. They are gorgeous. ****SHOPPING LIST******

You better wake up.

So you may wonder why I would title this post, “you better wake up!.”  It has nothing to do with the current political climate at all…It has to do with me believing that my outfit is a bit like Sandy’s last outfit in Grease.  HAHAHA!  Anywho.  I found a new store, and it’s great.  It’s called Miss Chelsea. I dropped in while doing my regular Fifty Linden Friday route, which as always, is a great little event to find new stores.  I cannot stress this enough.  FRF is one of those events where you actually GO to the main stores and not only pick up a deal, but get to peek at the stores offerings.  Like everyone, I shop events.  But I really like checking out main stores too!  There were at least 3 new to me stores in Friday’s event, and I love finding new spots to shop.  The top and tights are from Miss Chelsea, and the sky high heels are from Breathe. Hair to love is Monso and the fantastic tattoo is White Widow.… Read the restwakeup_mouse6

Folk




         Collabor88 is full of gorgeous embroidered designs this month. They are all so gorgeous and they reminded me of quite a few folk/boho gacha sets that I own. I had a lot of fun setting up this scene. I love all the decor! My dress is from Tres Blah and can be found at collabor 88. I paired it with Wasabi Pills hair that can be found at faMESHed and Essenz shoes that were just released yesterday at Shiny Shabby. faMESHed is open until February 25th so there are only a few more shopping days left of that great event. I am also wearing Pink Fuel lipstick and Zibska eyeshadow that were a part of Powder Pack

Folkloric

I always like to bust up sets and mix and match because it shows that the clothing people make in Second Life is more versatile than we think. For that reason, even though the Irina cropped sweater I am wearing from The Secret Store comes with a beautiful skirt that coordinates with it, I chose to wear a different skirt to show it can be done. Of course, you know and I know it can be done, but a reminder is useful.  And likewise, this gorgeous pleated skirt from ISON was released with a coordinating top with gorgeous embroider on the shoulders. I love these knife pleats. Every time I see them, I am reminded of this amazing fabric store I went to in Algeciras. I have been to larger ones since, but this one had the feeling of centuries of tradition. The building was incredibly old and there were shelves that went up nearly to the ceiling which was at least twenty feet high and rolling ladders to climb to reach the fabrics. Even the cash register must have been from the 19th century, covered with ornate leaves and flowers.  … Read the restalthough the actual image is clear enough, the interpretation is infinitely blurred, a sort of enormous rainbow of every possible color you could imagine

Stories & Folklore

The theme for Collabor88 this month is StoryTime and the creations showcased are a rich display of folkloric traditions and influences. There is a lot of embroidery, a lot of beautiful colors and rich traditional fabrics. Sissy Pessoa ran with the idea into a more modern direction with this gown and capelet. It has all the traditional flower forms, but the dress itself is quite modern and made even more so in the sheer version.
But sheer or opaque, it’s bold and beautiful. Both the dress and capelet come with the sheer or opaque options. With the sheer option, I can show off these gorgeous pumps from Ingenue that are also for Collabor88’s Storytime inspiration. Designer Betty Doyle’s display ad features the red pair because her inspiration was the somewhat grim Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, The Red Shoes. Also at Collabor88, Phoenix released this Tiana hair, long and lush. The earrings are from Kungler’s, part of the January Cosmopolitan showcase.… Read the restWith freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?

Heartbeat




        Looking for a Sexy Valentine Date Outfit that will not break your bank? My dress is a 15L Ricielli hunt gift and most of the other items I am wearing are gacha items. If you are lucky, you could have them in a few inexpensive pulls (or MP purchases). Hair, shoes, and dress could all be yours for as low as 165L! That makes an amazing budget friendly date outfit! You can try your luck with the Doe hair and Essenz shoes at Gacha Garden.

V for Victory

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always” Mahatma Gandhi
I am ready to resist, though if we’re marching, I have to change my shoes. Lizziah released a darling cropped sweater and skinny jeans, each in four colors. I confess cropped sweaters confuse me. Warming shoulders, chilly tummy. It’s gorgeous. Look at the details. The super-long sleeves, the ribbed band not the sweater, the sticking o the pockets. P.S. The V pose is from Gingerfish for Bento hands. I don’t have any yet and used Slink. The other poses are from aDorkable. Glamistry’s Azalea pumps are gorgeous. There is a HUD for all sorts of customization. I added this fun necklace from Mandala. The nails are from Flair. The gorgeous hair is from Truth and the skin is Glam Affair’s new gacha set Susan ****SHOPPING LIST******

The Borg Loses in the End

Yesterday, three million women and men marched in every state and on every continent in the world. Every continent, even Antarctica. In 51° below Kotzebue, Alaska, people marched. In sunshine and rain storms, desert heat and arctic cold, people gathered to resist. Of course, the naysayers mocked and dismissed. “Resistance is futile,” they quote The Borg, an implicit confession of corruption. They forget, the Borg is destroyed in the end.
I adore this leggings from Vinyl. They are just perfection. The tank is from Zaara. Both are at Collabor88 this month. The shoes are from Ingenue. Of course, resistance is more than one march on one day. We know that. We don’t need to be mocked or disparaged for our success and our enthusiasm. We are not naive. We know that we must organize now, not just march. We must speak to our neighbors, our friends, and our family. We do not need to argue with the opposition. They are not ready to listen and may never be, but we outnumber them if we only act and if we vote.… Read the restThis, to me, is the ultimately heroic trait of ordinary people; they say no to the tyrant and they calmly take the consequences of this resistance. Philip K. Dick

Building dikes to hold back the tides of fear

Resistance requires strength. Sari-Sari released a set of ballet poses with their exercise equipment for Collabor88
Building up my pixel power, I am wearing some great exercise clothes from this round of Collabor88. The pants are from Decoy and the sports bra and top are from Zaara. My sporty hair cut is from Mithral Lovely skin and makeup options in Glam Affair’s Ravenna are perfectly subtle.

And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been.

Rilke was right to note that the new year would be full of things that have never been. Every new year brings us innovation, discovery and change. In that, every new year brings us something to hope for despite looming dangers. Despite the many losses that have made 2016 a bitter and sorrowful year, I fear we may look back on it with longing as the Grand Panjandrum takes the oath he will break that very day and every day that follows. Tomorrow will follow tomorrow and time goes forward inexorably. All we can do, then, as we teeter on the edge of the abyss, is resist despair, resist defeat and find sanctuary in community, in beauty, and in certain knowledge that the arc of the moral universe may have gotten a kink in it, but it still bends toward justice.


It may be that Second Life® becomes a refuge, a haven of sanity and compassion in a world that has turned vicious and violent. There is a culture of tolerance, open-hearted decency, and cross-cultural respect in Second Life that may be a safe haven for people who find the open embrace of bigotry by our political leaders offensive and intolerable.… Read the restAnd now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been. Rainer Marie Rilke

Reign New Year’s Sale 50% off




        Reign is having a 50% off New Year's Sale today and tomorrow! Make sure to head over there this weekend to stock up on gorgeous shoes and boots. I personally looked through Kenadee's Flickr stream to decide on my favorite Reign shoes for 2016. It was a really hard choice because I love them all, but in the end these Classic Jane Heels with Sheer Stockings are my number one 2016 fave shoe.
        I paired them with a few items from the current round of Collabor88. The Reign stockings work perfectly with the erratic lily set- so if you already own these shoes and stockings you could save some money on that part of the erratic set and just buy the panties, bra, and suspender. I am also wearing the Wasabi Pills hair that is at collabor88. I love the star headband that comes with this style! Happy SALE shopping and don't forget to go get your collabor88 items before this round is over Jan 6th.

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******

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
