Don’t Look Back



        I am out playing in the rain today in a new sim that I found, One Caress. I am wearing skin and makeup that I just got in Powder Pack February, a new Neve outfit, Exile hair, Kunglers bracelets, and Reign shoes. Wow, I have a lot of new goodies on today, lol, and they look fabulous. 


        To get the Powder Pack items, you have to buy it for twice the original price of the pack (3,000). With 4 full skins, tons of eyelashes, and makeup galore it is really worth the double price tag. If you have not seen what is included in the February Powder Pack, CLICK HERE for my unboxing video. Don't miss out on the low price of 1,500 next month (often the cost of one full skin) and make sure you reserve your Powder Pack before the 17th of the month. 



        My Neve outfit, and Reign shoes can both be found in the main stores. My Exile hair is new at Collabor88 and my Kunglers bracelets are at We <3 Roleplay this month.

Folkloric

I always like to bust up sets and mix and match because it shows that the clothing people make in Second Life is more versatile than we think. For that reason, even though the Irina cropped sweater I am wearing from The Secret Store comes with a beautiful skirt that coordinates with it, I chose to wear a different skirt to show it can be done. Of course, you know and I know it can be done, but a reminder is useful.  And likewise, this gorgeous pleated skirt from ISON was released with a coordinating top with gorgeous embroider on the shoulders. I love these knife pleats. Every time I see them, I am reminded of this amazing fabric store I went to in Algeciras. I have been to larger ones since, but this one had the feeling of centuries of tradition. The building was incredibly old and there were shelves that went up nearly to the ceiling which was at least twenty feet high and rolling ladders to climb to reach the fabrics. Even the cash register must have been from the 19th century, covered with ornate leaves and flowers.  … Read the restalthough the actual image is clear enough, the interpretation is infinitely blurred, a sort of enormous rainbow of every possible color you could imagine

Birds

Shiny Shabby will open soon and this Adele dress by Lybra is one of my favourite items from this round. It has a simple neckline on the front, and a plunging back decolleté so while it looks pretty modest, do not underestimate the appeal of this maxi dress.
I decided to wear it with the Victoria lace collar from The Mystic for an extra dramatic effect Need to knows:

Running Errands

I found this pretty hair by VoluptaVirtualis at this edition of Whimsical, which has just opened its doors. it’s made by Druunah Esharham, one of the owners of Aisling. I hope she’ll do more hair in the future because this is just so pretty. The rose is texture change, and for this outfit, I picked the sunny yellow one! I went to run a couple of errands at Saint Pete’s. Still one of the best sims to made some pics when you are looking for a nice town environment. Carefully landscaped by the fabulous Neva Crystal, Saint Pete’s simply can’t disappoint.   Hair Kiara 2 by VoluptaVirtualis (Whimsical)

Stories & Folklore

The theme for Collabor88 this month is StoryTime and the creations showcased are a rich display of folkloric traditions and influences. There is a lot of embroidery, a lot of beautiful colors and rich traditional fabrics. Sissy Pessoa ran with the idea into a more modern direction with this gown and capelet. It has all the traditional flower forms, but the dress itself is quite modern and made even more so in the sheer version.
But sheer or opaque, it’s bold and beautiful. Both the dress and capelet come with the sheer or opaque options. With the sheer option, I can show off these gorgeous pumps from Ingenue that are also for Collabor88’s Storytime inspiration. Designer Betty Doyle’s display ad features the red pair because her inspiration was the somewhat grim Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, The Red Shoes. Also at Collabor88, Phoenix released this Tiana hair, long and lush. The earrings are from Kungler’s, part of the January Cosmopolitan showcase.… Read the restWith freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?

The Weekend Steals Softly Into My Life

The weekend is here and I’m confused how it even arrived so quickly. The week flew by with things to do, places to shop and people to see. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. My new bed is making it hard to do more than just wake up, I want to lounge in this girly masterpiece forever honestly. I think I may have run the gauntlet being red though, my attention span isn’t as long as a month. Also – SL days are shorter than RL days so really I’ve probably already been red for a month. TIME FOR A CHANGE. Who knows maybe I’ll go back to blonde. Maybe I’ll just keep changing it up. I can’t even decide! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Once upon a time

Once upon a time, on a far away grid there lived this pretty bunch of pixels that even after a lifetime of shopping still wasn’t bored with the wonders that Collabor88 has to offer month after month…. Oh well, you know how that ends, right?
And then a new round of Collabor88 started on the 8th of the new month and Shoparella lived happily ever after, albeit constantly broke….

La princesse et la digue

It would have been too easy to dress up royally and then take a photo at some ball room, or a castle. But contrasts are making an image stronger, so this princess ended up at La digue du Braek for this shot. Love that sim. It’s so desolate. Sad almost with a special kind of industrial beauty, if that even makes sense. Diadem by Avaway

Resistance Is Fertile

This sign, a riff on the Borg’s mantra,made me laugh. I always just point out the Borg dies in the end. But I laugh because where I grew up, we competed against Fertile in sports and other competitions. More amusingly, Fertile happens to be just about 25 miles from Climax, another town we competed against. When you’re in high school, such things are hilarious and even to this day, pranksters add distance to Fertile signs to the “You are Entering Climax” sign and vice versa. By the way, whoever ordered “You are entering Climax” is my hero. That sign is gone now, replaced by the much less amusing “Climax Pop. 300” sign. Not that we weren’t without our own embarrassing names. A few miles out of town, there used to be a glorious road sign, “Bullshit Valley, Next Left” That was the name of the valley. That was the sign. When I was home this summer, I saw it has been “cleaned up” and now reads, BS Valley.… Read the restThe history of liberty is a history of resistance.

Window Shopping

I have too much time at my hands this week, recovering from surgery, being home, sleeping lots and thinking about the future of my blog.  Lately I am fed up with the black and whites, so I am going back to colour. How’s that for a change? Also, I want to shoot more out on the grid, and not all the time on my platform and in a way, going back to basic with little to no post processing! Now I feel like shopping for another lay out as well so lets see how that is going, no? Maybe I even get to update my blog roll….. welcome to the 21st century Graz!! Speaking of shopping, Have you been to Collabor88 yet? The initial crazy is over and the lag has died down a lot. Time for some pretty stuffs, right? And there is a lot of pretty this month with a theme that is somewhat inviting to folklore and colourful nostalgia! Hair Tiana by Phoenix (C88)
