Happy Birthday Cajsa

The first time I ever visited Cajsa at her house, she lived underwater. This isn’t to say she lived in some kind of bubble house underwater, she actually lived underwater. It was the fist time it had occurred to me that since the rules of breathing were not a necessity any longer that one could just live in a house underwater – just for fun. But she did. It was the first time I truly considered that a house didn’t need to be a house. I’m still pretty conventional but I never have forgotten the first time I realized that none of the rules applied in this place. Today is her birthday and an easy one to remember – it’s Tax Day in the US – and Cajsa’s birthday. Unlikely to be forgotten! I don’t know what she’s doing today, but I hope it’s relaxing and pleasant. I’ll be wondering if I shouldn’t live under the sea for a while, just to try it out? HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAJSA!!!!!

The In Between

My first thought today was to find some sort of horrible St Patrick’s Day nightmare and blog it as though I thought it were fitting. But hell I’ve done that for almost a decade so I decide nah, let it go finally. I mean it’s not like Shamrock Pasties and butt plugs are in short supply on Marketplace, if one is so inclined.  Yet I just wasn’t feeling it. I guess I’m just in a “Let me stand in front of this giant bear holding an umbrella” sort of mood. What can I say? Skin Fair is open and today I’m sporting newness from Alaska Metro. I love Alaska because her work is always truly lovely, and as a skinner she never forgets things like nails. Have you ever worn her nails? They’re flawless. I’m wearing her Cora skin with her Babygoth eye makeup. I felt like mixing it up so I’m also wearing a neutral lip shade from Stellar. It’s a lovely matte tone. Lexi always does a great job with her lipsticks. Now, I’ve just been shopping and I have to do a lot of unpacking.… Read the rest

Your Heart’s Desire

Your heart’s desire isn’t necessarily your mind’s. People say the heart wants what it wants. But what about the rest of you? What if your soul requires one thing? What if your hands and feet require another? And what about “What you can stomach?” Your stomach has needs of it’s own, that have nothing to done with one’s heart. There are things you feel in your bones.  What if your heart doesn’t know about them? What if your heart is a selfish ridiculous organ with no regard for the rest of your entity? Insert abrupt segue here….    I went shopping on marketplace for Valentine’s themed fun the other day, and found some amazing deals.  So many things are just utter crap on marketplace, I always purchase with a bit of cynicism but this pick up was inexpensive and fun.  It includes dress, shoes, bag, and a couple of other things I wasn’t into. you might be. For 100L it’s a pretty great pick up.… Read the rest

You Like My Loving Machine

It’s another day of exploring at Backdrop City for me. I have found no less than five new creators I need to support with my $$ and I’ll be going shopping soon. If you’re like me, you like to own a lot of backdrops to set up fun scenes for blogging the creations of our world. Joy on the grid today is brought to us courtesy of the January opening of Collabor88. I’m feeling an almost Valentine vibe with my colors today.It’d be a little chilly in the real world but luckily in SL cold is just a decorative feature. Amirite? I’m ridiculously in love with this hair from TRAM. Besides just being a great style, it’s one of those blogger must haves, perfect for casual or elegant looks. We can’t have enough stylish up dos girls. Pick this one up. Now I’m going to hit the mean streets and find an adventure for today. Who knows maybe I’ll even take pics! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

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.
