Hey Hey Let’s Rewind…

Hey howdy I’ve been shopping all the live long day can you believe it? I hit the Rewind event pretty hard, I’m gonna have to sell a pixel kidney i suspect to get by. But I managed to get this super cute backdrop from Astralia on my second pull at their machine. That was a sign from the Gacha Gods – so I walked away. Good fortune was MINE. Other things to be excited about is that it’s 3 days since Collabor88 opened which means you can GET IN NOW I BET! This stunning top from Blueberry should fall into your fall must have casual wear. I’m also wearing my favorite jeans with it – I need to fall in love with a new pair of jeans but when you love one pair this much it’s difficult. Second life problems I guess. I had my hair done today by TRAM which is also a pick up from Collabor88. I really love this curly girly style, it’s really fitting my casual happy Saturday feelings right now. Now, see, I DO leave the house sometimes regardless of what that article in The Atlantic says.… Read the rest

I Am Going to the Max

“A proper community, we should remember also,
is a commonwealth: a place, a resource, an economy.
It answers the needs, practical as well as social and spiritual,
of its members — among them the need to need one another” — Wendell Berry
Rustica was one of the first furniture stores I ever visited in Second Life. My friend Maht Wuyts from The Velvet and I would go there at least a couple times a month. We had a photo studio and it was furnished with Rustica’s Couch of Many Colors and there was that sleek recliner that offered Grey Goose martinis. There was the sleeper sofa that opened up with a mouse click into a bed. Long billowy curtains that pooled on the floor. Man, we loved that place. It felt like a real shop, a bit over-crowded and messy. You know, like an old-fashioned place that is the opposite of a mall. Unlike many stores, when you visited Rustica, the owner might be sitting behind the counter and would even chat. So Max Graf has been an SL acquaintance and friend for ten years now.… Read the restThose who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable-JFK

Subtle Colors For the Win

I love subtle colors and how they play off each other. This outfit from Baiastice is a beautiful example, though it also comes in vibrant colors and prints. The Baiastice outfit includes the Chaus trousers and the Elliot cardigan. It also comes with some fashionable sneakers, but I am feeling pumps today.  Garbaggio’s shoes come in a several dozen color options. In fact, there is a riot of colors which makes their name “Riot” Pumps perfect. Monso’s Taingu hairstyle is loose and casual and everything brilliantly carefree. The jewelry is from Kungler’s and is out at We <3 Roleplay. That glimps of lingerie is Luxuria’s Temptress Bodysuit. I am wearing Spencer, the lovely new Lelutka Mesh head and the Glam Affair Spenser makeup. And now, isn’t that Half-Deer flower cone so very perfect with the Baistice Elliot Cardigan. ****SHOPPING LIST******

And Just Like That It’s Bandana Day

Bandana Day is upon us once again. It’s a stern reminder of why we have the Hair Fair each year which is much more about others than us.  It’s not just a shopping event, yet we do love to shop. It’s an event where we come together and the lindens we spend help others. The RL has plagued me more than usual and kept poor Pixel Gidge trapped on her island alone, but she did make a foray into the Hair Fair. She has a ritual, before she buys anything, she seeks the bandanas. Why? Because they people that make them, make them with LOVE. They don’t make a dime out of it, they don’t benefit, in fact it costs them time and creativity. Yet every year people make them. Hell even I made them a year or two – until the trappings of mesh put them beyond my own skills. I’m proud to stand here for the “I don’t Know How Many Years In a Row” time and say I supported Wigs for Kids and Hair Fair once again. Thank you Sasy and Whimsy and whomever else poured their time and love into making this event happen.… Read the rest

Eponymous Me & Cockfosters

So, I was considering what to wear on this subway. I really didn’t want anything ridiculous revealing. Something I would hope not be accosted in is what I was thinking. I remembered this gorgeous dress Cecelia Petion had posted on Plurk, so I unpacked the Poppy blogger box for June and saw the box inside had a dress named Cajsa. OMG! What could this be? Then when I unpacked it, it was the dress I remembered from Plurk…I just about did handstands. I would have if I had an animation handy. This struck me as the apotheosis of Second Life serendipity. They way things just fall into place. So I needed something subway suitable because the first short story in Cockfosters takes place on a subway. And yes, I admit it, I read the book because the title amused me. I am adolescent that way. Speaking of serendipity, how about those sandals from Ingenue at Collabor88 this month. Poppy did not make this dress for Collabor88, yet, could they be more perfect together? This whole outfit is an ode to serendipity, though I confess, I selected the texture on the headband to make it a bit more peachy than pinky.… Read the rest“There are only two ways to live your life.

There Isn’t Much Time Left

Maitreya released LARA 4.0 with BENTO Hands and that’s big news on the grid today. In other news you’ve probably got minutes left before COLLABOR88 tears down so really, hop to it if you haven’t. I’ve got my coffee, I’ll wait while you run over. I’ve got a bit of shopping to do myself and some other things, it’s a busy grid life day for this girl. Mostly I think I need to do another inventory purge. I don’t know how people keep their inventories small. It always amazes me. Oh, I gotta take this call. Seriously though – get your fill at Collabor88. The bell tolls for thee. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Azuchi! Bless You!

I picked up the LUXEBOX this month and had to log in before my typist ran off to the RL to check out what was in it. So far my best love is this flawless top from Azuchi which fits perfectly over the pants they released for UBER. It comes in five colors in the box and is a great staple piece for your spring wardrobe. I haven’t peeked at the rest of the offerings yet because it was telling me I was clicking too fast to get my goodies and ain’t nobody got time to wait like all that. (Okay I know scripts yadda yadda I understand, I just don’t have patience this early). I’m looking forward to opening the rest in a bit. Happy Wednesday girls! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Enter The Succulents

I’m missing some sort of female knowledge base, wherein information about plants is kept. I always feel like I’m supposed to know wtf some plant is, and really my knowledge base is limited to roses, daisies, dandelions and possibly tulips if they aren’t strangely flowered. So when I got to rezz these succulents from MISH MISH my brain said SO THAT’S WHAT THOSE ARE! I’ve heard this term forever, I had no idea. Also, I’ve seen this plant a million times and had no idea what it was. I’m sporting a new skin from AlaskaMetro for Skin Fair and I couldn’t resist the blue lipstick. I’m a fan of nontraditional lip colors and this blue is so well done it doesn’t disappoint. It’s a very pretty, polished look for a face. I’m loving this skin. My hair is from Moon and I think it may be the first time I’ve worn this brand, I do like their blondes. Well done. You can pick it up, along with my clothes and the home decor pieces at Collabor88 this month.… Read the rest

Don’t Get Froggy…or Do?

I’ve lived a lot of places and I tend to take “sayings” from those places with me when I move. One of my favorites was “Don’t get froggy” when meant – don’t JUMP into something, either with attitude or just generally sticking your nose in where it didn’t belong. If you started to start mouthing off into something that wasn’t going to go well for you, a friend would say “Oh don’t get froggy.” It always made me laugh. I’m reminded of frogginess this morning (is that even a word?) because I’m messing about with a new (old but revisited) photo editor. I don’t have PS and have always just used free online editors to crop and play with my photos. Picmonkey has decided it wants money and well honestly, I’m not sure I love it enough to pay for it. I might. But I’m not making that decision today. Instead I hopped back over to ribbet.com and I’m now wondering why I ever left it?… 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

Is it warm in here…

Or is it just me?

I managed to squeeze into the Mesh Body Addicts Fair early access just before bedtime last night.My intention was to grab the demos I wanted and go back later after things die down. I was pleasantly surprised to find a few gifts!
Alaska Metro has this lingerie set for free in their booth. There are 6 different styles of the panties and bra in this single color with system layers and appliers (Omega, Slink & TMP).

AviCandy's 1940's Inspired Liquid Stockings were a gift at Vintage Fair but are being offered again at MBAF for 0L. Update: Ashton Tryce of AviCandy has moved these to the main store but they are still free! Thank you Ashton for letting me know.

I almost missed this wonderful gift skin in the Stix booth but saw the pink box as I was turning to leave. This is Hera:Wonder and it comes in tones Cream and Butterscotch (which I'm wearing). You get system skins, head and body appliers as well as appliers for Soul Uni ears. Thank you, Pixy!
Koffin Nails completed my look with this Mystic Memories manicure (you get the pedicure too!) in three metallic colors.… Read the rest

Manicure Monday in Pelican Point

My most recent adventure was to Pelican Point. The paparazzi meets you when you land from your small plane. The streets are lined with fancy cars and flowers. I wore my new AlaskaMetro Cordelia dress and Billa heels. My Carmela hairstyle was done by Truth, and my gorgeous makeup is Cerise by Lara Hurley.

I Had Plans You See

Having a social calendar is suddenly making my SL a busier place, and I’m loving it. Except for one thing. I’m TIRED. Cajsa and I were out this weekend and reminiscing on the so many parties we used to throw and attend, and how much time we used to spend together and she remarked “Yes, you never slept.” I guess that’s true. I was younger, or stupider (more stupid for the literati).  But you see LAST NIGHT I really wanted to go to a party at Amatorum this fun group I joined and I thought it would be a good excuse to trot out some pretty lingerie I have and then well, let’s say the clock didn’t stop. Damn clock. Some of the decor pieces are: Cheeky Pea: Lotus Spa Rugs Garbaggio // Shoe Clutter Nude Garbaggio // Shoe Clutter White Garbaggio // Shoe Clutter Pink Garbaggio // Shoe Clutter Colorful Cheeky Pea: Bureau de Brioude Stool (PG) Cheeky Pea: Bureau de Brioude -tres blah- Jolie – Perfume Collection RARE -tres blah- Eclectic Collection – Perfume -tres blah- Eclectic Collection – Pamper -tres blah- Eclectic Collection -Bath Bombs RARE :Cheeky Pea: Lotus Spa Bath Caddy :Cheek Pea: Lotus Spa Occasional Table :Cheeky Pea: Lotus Spa Bath 04.erratic / lsm – side table – ash dust bunny .… Read the rest

What’s Wrong With Being Confident?

I’m pretty excited as we’re heading right into the holiday season full steam ahead.  In the US we have Thanksgiving tomorrow which is in fact THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS no matter what the scrooges say. It’s that most wonderful time of the year of good cheer and family and friends and WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUND. I like it, can you tell? Other things that are amazing and coming your way include the newest round of UBER, the Tannenbaum event (more Christmas than you can shake a stick at) and OMG THE NEXT ROUND OF THE ARCADE. I was just perving the works in progress and early peaks – I’m so excited. I am amazed at how many creators are including sizing for the new HOURGLASS shape from SLINK so early. This dress and sweater set from THE SECRET STORE at COLLABOR88 (still open!) is adorable and looks amazing on my curvier look. I’m rocking poses from Ma VIE that are available at My Attic this month for a steal – bloggers you know you need more poses!… Read the rest

Wishes and Wants

Alaska Metro is participating in a “new to me” event (hey it could be new, or old, I don’t even know) called SAD NOVEMBER. Why so SAD November? I’m sort of ok with November really. Thus far it’s treated me better than September and October so I don’t have this Sad November thing in focus. The event however is cute. I looked through their event and am going to have to do some more shopping. You can check out the gallery HERE. I’m trying a new to me skin today, from Deetalez.  What do you think? Gidge is Wearing:
