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

Midori

When I saw the Tentacio kimono outfit for The Arcade was named Midory, I had to try it. When I was in college, one of my friends was a student from Japan named Midori. Midori and Midory are the same, when languages written in other alphabets are written in our alphabet, the transliteration may vary. She came home with me for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I remember we put on quite the feast with steamed cucumbers stuffed with pork, gyoza, tempura, and other tasty foods. She had a few kimonos and insisted on dressing me up in one of hers. It was very fancy and after she wrapped that obi around my waist again and again and again, I thought I would never need a jacket. So here’s to Midori, who, to be honest, I cannot imagine ever wearing anything so short as this dress that bears her name. I love the ease, the casual comfort with the nod to traditional forms in Tentacio’s dress. I thought these lace-up Kioko pumps from BREATHE are just the perfect blend of style and youthful insouciance.… Read the restPink isn't just a color, it's an attitude

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******

Happy Valentine’s Day 2018






        Tomorrow is the day we celebrate Love in all it's forms. Today I am celebrating family love because I love these people! Happy Valentine's Day Hiram and Cindy Lu, Mom loves you! 
        I saw Avaway's Rare Tiara set at the current round of Gacha Garden and HAD to have it. I played til I got it and it's everything I wanted. It is soooo gorgeous! The set has armlets, 2 necklaces, earrings, and the RARE Tiara, all in three different stone variations (White (shown), Pink, and, Black). My gorgeous off-shoulder Amore dress is new by Neve at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative and I think it is soft and romantic and would be perfect for V-day.

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.

Afternoon on a Hill

Edna St. Vincent Millay was not thinking of textiles when she wrote, “I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one,” but nonetheless, when I put on this dress from NOIR for Collabor88, I immediately thought of her poem, “Afternoon on a Hill” perhaps because of that line, but also perhaps because it describes so well, the joy and contentment a person can find in nature. I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one. I will look at cliffs and clouds
With quiet eyes,
Watch the wind bow down the grass,
And the grass rise. And when lights begin to show
Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,
And then start down!  
I am loving every single thing about this month’s theme, but then I love romantic and feminine clothing. Don’t get me wrong, I also love sleek minimalism and bold, vibrant experimental clothes, but there’s nothing more fun and feminine than florals.
Just so you know, there is probably a line from Edna St.… Read the restI will be the gladdest thing Under the sun! I will touch a hundred flowers And not pick one.

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

I Am a Collabor88er

Wow, this necklace and earrings from LaGyo at Collabor88 are gorgeous. So are the Lucky Chair nail appliers from Alaska Metro…go see if you can win. Blueberry is peerless at texturing and bringing the sexy.
I love chevron prints and this skirt from AlaskaMetro is great. This is at Fashion Dazzle, a shopping event that is new to me. I had planned to wear boots with it, but they need to be shorter boots because if they get close to the knee, the boots poke through the skirt. I could have found a pair to work, but decided to go with pumps instead. I added these delicate and subtly scalloped pumps from Ingenue. KoKoLoReS has this great hair released at Hairology. This new skin Federika was released by Glam Affair at Collaobor88. ****SHOPPING LIST******

On My Throne



      Everyone was doing sexy pictures with the new Boom Cozy shorts and Teshi tops that are at N21, but I saw a funny one at the gym that made me laugh. So I asked plurk for funny ideas and they came up with this one and it made me laugh- so I thought it needed to happen, lol. These shorts have a nice or naughty (shown) version... for whatever your SL needs might be. You have until October 12th to shop N21.

       I don't own a potty in SL, lol. It is one of those things that I have said I will never buy- so I had to go to my friend Alicia's house and borrow hers. I even sprayed air freshener after!

Moon Love

But even when the moon looks like it’s waning…it’s actually never changing shape. Don’t ever forget that. -Ai Yazawa That quote seems perfect for Moon Amore, the store that released this lovely outfit at Collabor88 this month. It seems no matter the event, you can always recognize Moon Amore for the fresh, feminine styles released. There’s a daintiness that is emblematic in every release. Color-customizable shoes from Mutresse seem a great match and are also at Collabor88. Time is running out, so rush to Collabor88 TODAY! Exile released adorable hair as well with this lovely hat which has a color change hud. My skin is from Glam Affair, Spenser for the same-named Lelutka mesh head with which I have fallen in love. ****SHOPPING LIST******

Plastic Fantastic

Since the JustBecause pants and the Moon Amore top are both color change, this outfit has about eleventy million options.
 These shoes from Garbaggio also come in a few dozen options, though they are pre-selected. I liked the pink and yellow, but they are more than that, the heel cap is green and the stiletto is red. Wasabi Pills has a cute long hair style. It comes with a fun little headband, but I liked it better without. The necklace is from Tentacio. Isn’t that necklace adorable? I am wearing the new Spencer head from Lelutka with Glam Affair’s Spencer makeup, using the HUD to tone down the color of the lipstick and eyeshadow a bit. There is a vulnerability to Spencer that I really like. ****SHOPPING LIST******

Fashion Cannot Be Eclipsed

Collabor88’s theme for its August Birthday celebration is Plastic Fantastic. In my first life, I would not be caught dead wearing plastic, but this is not first life. Here I don’t have to worry about whether fabrics breathe and my avatar does not sweat, so there are no fetid swamps of trapped and suffocating skin. Instead, we have the bright, shiny flash of plastic. I like the dress from Baiastice that takes advantage of plastics best qualities to give us that flirty hem and gleaming sheen.


My shoes are also from Baiastice and I love the red and clear acrylic heels. These heels are everything and you can customize them with a hud.  I love the entire look. Cute, sexy, and sassy. Some of the sass comes from the adorable new Lelutka head Spenser with the winsome face. The Monso cut with the bangs and blunt cut edge and the LaGyo knotted plastic jewelry all contribute to an irreverent free look. Photography by Cajsa Lilliehook

There’s a Boat That’s Leaving Soon for New York

One of my favorite songs ever is “There’s a Boat That’s Leaving Soon for New York” from Porgy and Bess as sung by Phoebe Snow. This promenade on Staten Island made me think of the song. To be honest, lots of things make me think of this song. It’s on my iPod and I play it frequently. Her voice was amazing and she was a heroic woman. There’s a boat that’s leaving soon for New York
Come with me
That’s where we belong, baby
You and me can live that high life in New York
Come with me
There we can’t go wrong, baby
We’ll live in the swellest mansion
Up on upper 5th avenue
And through Harlem we’ll go struttin’, we’ll go struttin’
And there’ll be nothin’ too good for you
You’ll dress me in silks and satins
In the latest Paris styles
And all your blues you’ll be forgettin’
You’ll be forgettin
There’ll be no frettin’
Just nothing but smiles There’s a boat that’s leaving soon for New York
Come with me

I Will Stick with Horses, Thank You

I love this new Plume dress from Basaltice with its little feathers all over it. It comes in so many versions and I want to wear them all. One of the things I love about Sissy Pessoa is when she does prints, she does a lot of prints that are not just several shades of one print. The dress also has a long version with a long sheer skirt over the shorter opaque skirt. My poses are all from a new HUD from Voir…a bento hud and more importantly an (almost) still Hud that is not so fidgety. Yay! I used it in this video reviewing the book Good Friday on the Rez. I had planned to shoot this with some bison in South Dakota, but some jerk there kept shoving me, so I had to leave. I will stick with horses. I reached way back in my closet for the Ramonda heels from Glamistry. I think they are my favorite Glamistry shoes. I love these classic shapes, the pointed toe, no platform, feminine and sleek. My skin is Barbara from Glam Affair – a Lelutka applier and the hair is from Pr!tty, from June’s Hairology.… Read the restI will stick with the horses

The Arcade Closes at Midnight Friday

Beaches and dragons, camping equipment and drive-ins, campers, canoes, and wedding dresses. All those things will remain in one room for just one more day….so if you have been waiting for traffic to slow down at The Arcade, you better hop to it.

I am camping on the beach with hive and Sway’s helpful creations. The decision to camp was inspired by a book I read, Gather the Daughters. It will be on my favorite books of 2017 list. Sway’s shelter and floor make camping comfy and very well lit. M.Birdie’s Marcia outfit is also great camping gear since it’s already very distressed. I went barefoot. The beach, luckily, is swept for broken glass and other pokey things. ****SHOPPING LIST******

Age of Swords @ The Arcade

 I love it when different elements from The Arcade come together like the armor from Fedora and the dragon elements from C L A Vv at June’s Arcade which ends at Friday night. I actually loved the wings from the C L A Vv dragon, but ended up using these from Conflict Angel because I wanted animated wings for my video blog below . I reviewed the second book in an amazing fantasy series, Legends of the First Empire. I dug out some elements from the Bird of Prey that C L A Vv made for a previous Arcade. That curved blade works well with the dragon gloves. Aren’t those claws something? I just am so in love with those boots/claws. The Tableau Vivant hair is gorgeous, too, and so active, full of movement. The makeup is from Glam Affair. Look at those weapons! ****SHOPPING LIST******

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.

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******
