My Neck Is Made Of Steel

I love rollers for my SL hair. I love all things that, as my friend Isla says “enhance the narrative”. Pixel Gidge is a character and her pixel life is played out for the most part here on this blog. Rollers are exactly what a girl this prissy would need, and let’s face it, she would have LOTS of different kinds. Tiny Bird released a set of can rollers YEARS ago that were adorable. This past week Truth and Ploom both released roller hair dos for us pixel girls, and since I’ve already blogged Truth’s – let’s take a look at PLOOM! Ploom made roller cans which is hilarious and cute.  As always you can use the hair dye hud of your choice – I’m using one of the dipped huds. I also am amused because these cans appear to be full. NO SACRIFICE IS TOO GREAT FOR BEAUTIFUL HAIR LADIES. I don’t care what they weigh – get those cans in your hair. It’s Friday – time to get cute! Gidge Is Wearing:

Let’s Go

I miss the days when I would get off work and come home and GET READY TO GO OUT. It was exciting, that my day was getting ready to get started at 6pm and the night was ahead. Makeup, hair and nails would be freshened up as we headed out into the adventure of the night. Those were the days. Now mostly I just would like a nap. Ah but in SL I don’t have to have energy. On days when this viewer is cooperating I can do anything! Anything except move that end table where It should go because that crashes my machine. LIVE WITH IT! I do. With my butt part of my body as it’s supposed to be, I’m ready to get dressed. Now, what to wear? Gidge Is Wearing: Skin: Belleza – Ria 9

Coffee and a Smoke

Sasy tells me I am only allowed to smoke in SL because I do not smoke in RL. I suppose that’s fair. I’m blonde and svelte in SL also – and that’s also the opposite of RL so symmetry is good. Tuesday mornings are my bane. I always think of great things I should just HOP ON AND DO in Azeroth and then I forget my servers are always down for maintenance right now. And I pout and stomp about. Or I have a coffee and a smoke, as it were. I’m wearing one of my favorites from COLLABOR88 this month – from ISON. You definitely need both the tank and the skirt – they are gorgeous together and will work great as staples to wear with other things. I’m also sporting hair from a new hair dresser – KOY. This is Belle – and I love the blondes on the HUD.  You can hop this slurl to find KOY at THE DECK. Well I’m dressed for work, so I had better get to it. Ttfn. Gidge Is Wearing:

An Easter Beach Day Without My Butt

I couldn’t decide what to do this Easter with my pixel self so I slipped into this crazy bikini from The Plastik and headed out into the surf. I saved these crazy knitted swim tubes from Ray Skin for years. I forgot how hilariously awesome they are. When you can’t cam around freely, and you have to move slowly from one thing to the next in SL bcse you’ll crash, you tend to get SO focused (I do anyway) that you can miss things. for instance I was set on taking some cute beach pics. I had this nagging feeling though, picture after picture, that something was wrong. I couldn’t figure out WHAT thought. I pulled out my favorite beach towel from W.Winx and my new adorable sandals (surely they’re practical for the beach right?) from L.Warwick and managed to get three pictures before my machine told me to stop. Then I saw it. That’s right. I’m wearing the wrong shape. I AM BUTTLESS. Note to self. Check shape. Happy Easter everyone! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

The Most Important Top On The Grid

My entire outfit was planned around this bandeau from Tres Blah which is new for Collabor88. The colors offered are gorgeous and subtle, and this is a perfect wardrobe pick up because it’s a summer staple. It can go under blazers, and with long swishy skirts. You can dress it up or down and it’s a perfect compliment to our never ending beach party than is Second Life. Well, some of us anyway. There were also shoes, and tights, but that doesn’t matter now. ALL that matters is this top. You see, I started with the top. I built everything around the top. The top was my focus. Then the top became my obsession. You see my good computer is frelled and I’m on a machine that’s probably about 7 years old. This computer has caused me to reflect upon my blogging, my Second Life and what I feel about it. Because this machine has made me define whether or not I really WANT it. I started trying to shoot this outfit some five days ago. FIVE DAYS AGO. The first thing that happened was some rebaking issues.… Read the rest

Get Thee To Japan Fair

I was scrolling through my PLURK feed early yesterday morning and caught “JAPAN FAIR” from one of the blog aggregators that I added recently. That sounded like sometihing I couldn’t miss so I changed my blogging plans and decided to find this. The blog post they listed didn’t give a slurl and I couldn’t find it in search. God Bless Dr Google. For all the info here is the blog. And because I’m awesome here is the SLURL.  It’s nicely laid out, I’ve only done half of it thus far. I confess I bought one of the first things I saw – LOVE this minidress. This same creator also has some really dashing men’s clothes. Yes I said DASHING. They are, hush. There were so many adorable kimonos and other items that I’m going to have to consult my budget before I go back. Be sure to get over and check out JAPAN FAIR. Several creators also have out a free gifts – NOT to be missed cute stuff. I’m not wearing any.… Read the rest

And Then It Was The 8th

Collabor88 landed with a BOOM and a THUD and the only other sound you heard was the sound of fashionistas heels clicking as they raced to get in. I am as excited as anyone with the gorgeous watercolor palette this round, it’s a very Gidgey experience. KatatOnik right out of the gate and the adorable flats from Ingenue reminded me of the party dresses of yesteryear that I love so much. Is it wrong I want to dress like that every day? I’m ready for a night out of dancing until I can’t breathe. Whos is going to have a party? I’m still exploring and loving the fatpack of Erin from League I picked up- thank you Cajsa It’s a subtle, elegant skin that I really like.  I have missed wearing League, I really like the lips on this one.

Help Me Find You on Marketplace

My afternoon began with a text from one of my best friends, Codie. “I need your help. I have to find something to wear to Dirk’s funeral.” We spend a lot of time getting dressed for frivolous things in SL, things that don’t matter.  It’s amazing how your thoughts wander though, when what you are dressing for something that does in fact matter to you, when it’s not frivolity and trite.  Codie wanted a hat with a veil. My first thought was a place called Hatpins. I used to think they made adorable things, vintage and might have such a hat. I TP’d to the location in search and found a beach. The land was still marked as being said store, but it was a beach and there were palm trees. Not helpful. I went to marketplace and first tried out the word veil. I had half expected to find nothing but wedding stuff, color me surprised when some cars, lingerie, and other random items popped up. No veils. I thought hmmm, let me try two words and typed in VEIL HAT.… Read the rest

A Princess With Grace

Before the general American girl’s love affair with Princess Diana, if you old enough, you know we had Princess Grace. She was a real Princess of a magical kingdom that none of us quite understood why it was a kingdom (ok principality but when you’re a kid wtf is THAT?) but we knew she was a real princess. She was a movie star which is awesome and then she became a princess which was even MORE awesome. What little girl could dream of more? The Fit for a Princess event opens tomorrow and FISSION has chosen to celebrate one of Grace Kelly’s amazing gowns from a movie – REAR WINDOW as one of her contributions. The LISA dress is inspired by the gorgeous, iconic gown from the movie. It’s available in many colors, not just the black and white. I thought the red and black was a fun combo. It’s a fair nod to the original as you can see. Also I just realized that Grace Kelly has no feet. Very interesting. Or maybe I see feet. And odd shoes. I can’t tell.… Read the rest

What’s Not To Love ?

My new home from Alouette comes with the huge wrap around porch of my RL dreams.   After I got pixel Gidge ready for her very packed day of shopping she decided that ordering some breakfast up was exactly in order.  She has her own mind most days. Luckily, I live on an island that has everything and it was nothing to get some coffee to go sent over and some waffles. It makes me not really mind the storm rolling in for the day. In fact, I was so cozy and comfy that I decided the shopping could wait. At least until I had another cup of coffee. My corset and skirt combo are from girl thursday and is avail at MY ATTIC for only 95L but today is the LAST day!  I’ve already run the gauntlet at that event but it’s not too late for you. There is so much over there that’s adorable this round – you will be sad if you miss it. You know now that I think about it, a nap might not be a bad idea. I mean, light rain plus the pounding surf? How is this girl supposed to stay awake?… Read the rest

Does This Mesh Make My Butt Look Big?

GOOD. I have resisted the big butt because I just hadn’t seen one yet that really quite did it for me. I didn’t DISLIKE them I just was MEH, and thus didn’t warrant picking one up. But I was having a Gidgey moment this morning that Sasy was helping me with, and I thought DAMN Sasy looks cute. I didn’t really realize that she was wearing a mesh butt, her butt looked good but in a subtle way – bigger, rounder, super sexy but not so big I couldn’t stop staring at the butt. And with that she and I were off to demo butts. Seriously, that’s friends, the kind of friends who demo butts together. I didn’t realize that these are the leg too and not just an ass add-on. I love the long meaty legs, I admit. It’s a great look, healthy and femme. This brand, Uluckie , fits perfect with my slink feet. The other thing which is brilliant is that you don’t have to wait for 50 creators to make appliers! This mesh add on has instructions for just making those phatazz appliers ALL work for this product.… Read the rest

Adore or Abhor ? Oh ADORE!

Adore and Abhor are at SKIN FAIR with a set of offerings to enhace and mix up your regular skin options. Sileny made, at the request of her daughter, a bunch of brows in fun candy colors with a Morticia Addams severity to them. If you were a 20 something in the 90s you knew 20 girls who drew on their brows like that. Now they’re in their 40s and sad that they have no eyebrows. But that’s a different story. There are a ton of colors, I’m only bringing you a few today. I’m pairing them with the Candy colors hud of hair color from PLOOM. For the life of me I can’t figure out why I haven’t I haven’t spent more time playing with this set of colors. They’re so much fun. This great long style that has a perfect built in modesty feature (boobie covering) comes with size options to fit your mesh boobies AND the visage head so no worries about it fitting.  It’s available at MY ATTIC this month for 95L – a steal. Adore and Abhor also released tintable scars and freckles at SKIN FAIR.… Read the rest

It’s Fabulous Darling or Valar Morghulis – Full Review

A skin named for one of my favorite female characters, a girl who isn’t afraid to singe total bastards to death via her dragon, had to live up to it’s name.  I was excited to see this skin from Ab.Fab at Skin Fair but as with anything named after an iconic image, I wasn’t sure it would live up to how much I had hyped it in my mind. I didn’t need to worry. I’m trying out the lightest tones, because I’m a purest and want my Targaryens very pale. Danaerys is a beautiful skin that I think works well in every day looks not just sexy Games of Thrones role play – wait I wonder if there is one of those? Surely.  I’m definitely going  to wear her about for a bit. I really like the look. The creator included a really sweet note that her appliers weren’t quite done but EVERYONE who purchased this skin at Skin Fair WOULD be sent the appliers. How nice is that? I have no complaints about the body it’s quite lovely. If all men must die, this would be a good skin to do it in.… Read the rest

Moving Day Again

Well I didn’t move neighborhoods but I moved into a new house. Alouette is releasing a  new house on April 1 for the Home and Garden show and it’s rather amazing. I’m just settling in, trying to get the first floor settled. After figuring out the living room, I had to relax for a while. The living room is SUPER COZY with gorgeous windows that look out to the ocean or my sideyard. You can see my wee trailer out there.  I wish it was turquoise. Oh wait wrong brand I had trouble though, settling down to get to sleep my first night. I think it was just the newness of the place. I haven’t decided about my kitchen yet. But a full stocked fridge makes my time there considering what colors to use more pleasant. I am probably going to need to put up bedroom curtains as some of my windows look out to the main street. It’s cozy in my LAQ bed though and the sun through the windows is beautiful. I mentioned the windows didn’t I? Amazing windows throughout this house provide so much gorgeous light, it’s charming.… Read the rest

Rockberry – A Full Review Including Nakie Bits

Rockberry is a skin from my long ago past that I was excited to get a chance to look at via SKIN FAIR this year. I remember long ago, them participating in a hunt or an event and liking them enough to go back shopping. This was before the grid was plagued by nonstop events, of course. This will be a full review with body shots after the cut. The faces are pretty but the lip shape doesn’t suit my own shape at all. That doesn’t mean it won’t suit YOURS. The makeup colors are pretty and understated with classic looks to them all. I do like the lip/eyeshadow combinations she provides. The body is pretty and seamless, and it’s apparently quite cold on my platform. My one quibble is that there seem, to my eye at least, to be shading that almost looks like lines of white drawn down the body. It depends on the windlight you use, what this looks like. I originally shot this in photo neutral and when I processed (just cropping) the photos looked a bit like dark shading down the inner thigh.… Read the rest
