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

Die Schöne Tuli – With Full Skin Review – That Means NAKED

My best friend and I, upon hearing Maximilian Schell’s name, are likely to starting singing “die Schöne TIIIIIINA” because we are ridiculous fans of the movie “The Freshman”.  As I kept saying Sunny Tuli I kept hearing Schöne Tuli in my head. Umlauts over o are alt-0246 btw. The more you know. Now, for the sexy bits. Tuli makes a beautiful body. She’s one of my top two favorite tummies on the grid. She’s a shaved crotch girl so smooth sexy times await you.  I have always loved Tuli’s very gentle sense of light and shadow on her skins. Yes I’m a fangirl. And yes, that ass is pretty awesome, I know. Ok fine I didn’t make it but I own it so it’s mine. Sunny is shown above with tones 2-3-4 all gently more suntanned than the next without being orange or weird.  Weird is my technical term for some tan skins – just, WEIRD. Tuli however always preserves a natural look. I once heard from someone that Tuli makes the most kissable lips on the grid.… 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

Skin Fair Gets Ready to Kick Off

I like vintage swim suits a lot. I suppose it’s because half of SL has their bits hanging out all the dang time, I find it more alluring to cover mine up. Surf Co. has an offering of summer funtimes items at The Arcade and this not so little bikini is one of them. I thought it was a great time to trot out a bikini when I’m ready to launch into what will probably we a WEEK of really sharing great skins from skin fair. Yes, a week. There is a lot of awesome. My goals for Skin Fair this year are two fold. One goal is to find a new every day go to skin to add to my repertoire. I have a handful of trusted, quality skinners that I wear regularly. But it feels like branching out and adding another one or two is in order. Who knows what gems I will find? My other goal is to stretch my wings and try out skins that while they might not be me, are creative and inviting to wear.  I’m going to kick it of with PXL Creations. I am wearing the skin out of the box as it comes, in the freckled version, in pale tone.  … Read the rest

Old Things and New Things

I have to confess to being a hoarder in SL. Ok maybe a bit in RL. But this year I’m trying to change that, and I’ve already taken my inventory from 114k to 110k by picking a letter of the Alphabet and ruthlessly deleting. I’ve also done some foldering, which if you know me is a min miracle. While rummaging though, I realize I’ve got every farking dress Baiastice ever made including all from her PRE-MESH days and well, let’s be real I don’t need those. So I started deleting, checking dates, more deleting and then I realized I didn’t remember this dress.  And well, it’s not new but goodness it’s still quite cute. As a blogger now I’m going to go and wallow in the awesomeness of Skin Fair – which means I’ll just lose all this progress I made. OH WELL! It’s SKIN FAIR! There are some skinners who will have appliers available for the new SLINK VISAGE mesh heads – to which I SAY YES YES YES!… Read the rest

Let’s Talk Simple

A nice job texturing a simple dress can be as much of a skill as anything. This little halter dress from Ducknipple makes me think it’d be cute at a more elegant pool party as well – with your swimming suit underneath. It’s perfect for the cocktail hour of said party. It makes me feel summery and ready to be rid of all my baggage of the winter season.  I am also wearing some kicky new pumps for SLINK feet that are from LWarwick. They’re nicely made and great slip ons for casual or more dressy occasions too. I’m wearing the PLOOM skin Harlow still, I’ve had it on all week and I have to say, it’s easy to forget she makes skins with all the hair she releases, but this is such a pretty face. I pulled out a necklace from Donna Flora with a modern look to dress it up a bit. Jewelry from Donna Flora has so many different styles, from casual to elegant it’s easy to see why it’s still my go to jewelry in my box. A closeup of the Harlowe skin.… Read the rest

And If Your Close Your Eyes

I am adding this dress from Baiastice to my folder of staple foods when it comes to classic dresses. I’ve worn it twice now and that’s a definite endorsement.  It’s classic lines paired with casual comfort is perfect whether you’re feeling cocktail fancy or just comfy casual. Today I’m somewhere in between. Truth has released his LOVERS and HATERS hair. Today I’m wearing HATERS. I don’t actually have any HATERS. That’s a concept I can’t get on board with. Why on earth would you bother with having haters? That’s very 2013. Time to move on from such things. I know how much some folks like close ups, so here is one of PLOOM’s amazing skin Harlow. It’s easy to forget that PLOOM makes skin, but they are LOVELY and delicate skins. I really recommend you give them a demo. I’m also wearing one of Maxi Gossamer’s seat turtle necklaces from THE ARCADE. It’s so cute!… Read the rest

Some ARCADE FanFiction

Arcade opens on the 1st and I’m SO excited! ALL THE THINGS! I want ALL THE THINGS. Ok well most of the things.  One of the first things I’m excited about are these adorable fans for your home. You might thing “oh fans” but they’re just SO adorably textured, they kick up your decor as well as create a nice cool breeze as you go about your boring housework. They’re an adorable touch! Also they are only 25L a play, a BARGAIN! I am juicing up with a heavy dose of caffeine to make sure I am ready for all the pulling of machines that is to come. I can’t WAIT! I am going to need a bigger house.
