A little bit country

I grew up in the country and live in a city. I have enjoyed the benefits and put up with the inconveniences of both rural and urban life and in the end, I choose the city. Still, there are times I miss the country. Listening to some neighbor’s car alarm last night, random noises from vehicles, police alarms and a band practicing loud enough to disturb but too quietly to be enjoyed – I longed for the rhythmic lapping of the waves on the shore with the hum of crickets punctuated by frogs and the laughter of loons. So, I went to the country in SL today – with a romper from Peqe (at the Liaison Collaborative) and a cozy jacket from sheep door that I picked up at Japan Fair.

I added some good walking boots and socks from Maitreya and headed out to the deck that Lark made for the Home Show.   I braided my hair in a casual side braid from Truth – a brand new release, tossed on some jewelry from bellballs and Krystal and enjoyed the scent of flowers instead of exhaust. … Read the rest0424_002

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
Hair: Truth – Betsy

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.

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

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 – The PG Pics

Rockberry has released skins for Skin Fair and today I’m reviewing MIRA in the light tone. There is a lot of light on this skin – and sometimes if gives off shading effects that I find a little distracting. It’s actually a very pretty tone, and I know that all skinners create light and shadows so our skins aren’t the colors of clay, I just found myself looking at the light spots on the legs a lot wondering why I was getting that effect. I’ve posted a full review over on Its Only Fashion including full body pics for those who want to see. This is the PG version. My full notes are available on that link also. I think that this Mira skin has a pretty face however her lip shape doesn’t quite suit my own face. Her color combos are well matched and classic, however. She makes nice thin eyebrows, my favorites are the black and blonde. There is also a brown layer available. The skin pack I received has cleavage options, lots of makeup options in the fatpack, and freckles.… 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

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

Hey Hey Do That Brand New Thing

The war has begun, SLINK MESH HEADS VS THE WORLD. Ok, they aren’t the first by a long shot. There have been a handful and even some that have appliers but what any SLINK fangirl will tell you, when it’s SLINK, we love it. This is not an objective review.  HERE is an objective review. Collabor88 and SLINK West are both open today, and it’s hard to know where to throw your lindens first.  I’m loving the skirt and top from FISHY STRAWBERRY and the amazing shoes from Secret Store are perfect and you’ll need to pick them up. As for the head? Well, I actually like it. There are two of them right now. I feel like Becky suits me better, Emma is more Cajsa – I can’t wait to see what she thinks of it. I do wish the lashes were – different. Mesh lashes never QUITE melt my butter. I do think that some amazing things are coming from this new head and all the options available. Go demo the new mesh head from SLINK. What do you think? Gidge Is Wearing:
