Color Speaks All Languages

A little over 300 years ago, Joseph Addison wrote, “Colours speak all languages, but words are understood only by such a people or nation.” He was writing about the pleasures of the imagination and arguing that the written word incites the imagination more than imagery. He also suggested that how enthusiastically people respond to the written word is influenced by their capacity for engaging their imagination while reading. I like the idea that color speaks all languages, but it is hooey. First of all, even within people speaking the same language, men and women see color differently. Women see more shades of color than men and describe the colors differently. Beyond that, colors have cultural values that vary from place to place. There is a very cool interactive chart here. White is the color of mourning in East and of bridal innocence in the West. Red is lucky in China and dangerous in Europe and North America.
However, no matter what the cultural subtext color choices may bring, no one can deny that this gorgeous Ethnic Jacket from Purple Moon will being an entire conversation to your closet.… Read the restColors speak all languages.

      Halloween is one of my favorite holidays in SL. I love walking though spooky places. It is a super fun thing to do with a group of people. This year I am going to be looking for mesh body appliers- skins (like the one I am wearing today), halloween makeup- and also fitmesh Halloween clothing and costumes. Alterego has a great new skin that would be perfect for lots of Halloween looks because it comes in a brand new superlight skintone- Snow. It has some sensational bonus makeup tattoo options including cobweb eye-makeup that I think is spooktacular! The skin itself comes with three brow options (including browless), four lipsticks, and two cleavage options. This skin comes with tons of extras: loud mouth appliers, four mesh body appliers (slink, maitreya, belleza, and TMP), Uni ear appliers, and bonus makeup tattoo layers as well- all included!   You can find this new alterego skin at the next round of Totally Top Shelf starting October 2nd (coming soon).… Read the rest

There Are Shadows

There are shadows of the heart and shadows of the mind. When both types of shades plague you, it’s hard to know where to turn. Lingering, long cast reminders of where light once played splay across life and leave you with nothing. If you like to play with the dead light of shadows, Fiat Luxe has a new projector that drops a triple shadow in pastel light. I played for a while until I found the windlight I liked to go with it. I love shadows in SL. This amazing dress is a must have from Baiastice that you can still pick up at COLLABOR88 this month. It’s going to be perfect for some of your holiday entertaining.

Sanura Snowpaw made a heartfelt plea for help yesterday, one that was difficult for her to do because most of the time, she is the one answering the pleas of others. It is always hard for the givers to ask for help. But she is not asking for herself, not really, she is asking for her dog Kassie who needs an expensive surgery. Of course, she is doing her part, too, putting everything in her store Somnia on sale at half price in hopes that folks who like her clothes will come and stock up, taking home twice as much and injecting some much-needed lindens to help take care of her dog. Since she always sells her items with a texture change hud with 8 colors, that is 90 lindens for 8 colors of this sweater and 90 lindens for 8 colors of this skirt. Seriously, even if you do not care about the dog, you should spend, spend, spend just to stock up at half off on wardrobe basics. Since she makes appliers, you can also get all your layering basics too.

If you do not know Sanura’s name from her store Somnia, you may have her name thanks to her organizing the Pacific Crisis fundraiser after the earthquake in Japan, Project Fur Japan to support animal rescue after the quake and Wear Gray, the fundraiser for brain cancer research.… Read the restit can restrain the heartless


Alexander McQueen said “Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of punishment.” I agree, we should wear what makes us happy and only follow those trends that appeal to us. After all, style is more important than fashion and style is about our choices. There are always wonderful choices in Second Life®. I have also finally figured out how to make Marketplace work again and uploaded the projector I used to shoot these pictures.

Liziaah released a gorgeous new dress for the September round of the Sneak Peek event. It is a gorgeous  bodycon dress with tiny spaghetti straps and beautiful embellishment on the cups of the bra top bodice. I love the details of the textures, the seams even the zipper in the back. The seams darts on the bodice draw the fabric close to the body and highlight the female form perfectly. This is a dress that only gets better with closer inspection.
I chose these gorgeous Ingrid Pumps from Pure Poison for Collabor88.… Read the rest“Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment.”

Give Us a Little Love

There is about a week and a half left to the latest round of Collabor88 so I wanted to make sure to share another of my favorites from Tres Blah.  The Catcall gown is beautiful, with its rich colors and great details.

Caught Up

This girl was mean
She really turned me out
Her body was so tight
I’m lookin’ for her in the daytime with a flashlight
My homies say this girl is crampin’ my style
And I can’t figure it out (...)

That’s how the light gets in

I love the music of Leonard Cohen. I have a playlist I love of Leonard Cohen covers and know nearly all his songs by heart. One of them, Anthem, is one of my favorites because although on one level it despairs of the world; it also calls us to act with hope. “Ah the wars they will be fought again.  The holy dove, she will be caught again, bought and sold and bought again. The dove is never free.” It is true, endless wars are a constant stream throughout history,  started by governmental leaders,  the “killers in high places who say their prayer out loud.” But then there is the chorus. Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in. Ring the bells that still can ring acknowledges that as bad as it is, there are still some things that you can do. Don’t let excuses stop you from doing what you can. “Forget your perfect offering” reminds me of Voltaire’s aphorism “The perfect is the enemy of the good.”  Do not wait for the perfect answer, the perfect solution, go with what you’ve got because good enough is better than nothing, and nothing is what you get if you wait for perfect.… Read the rest“There is a crack in everything.

Dark Times

The first day of fall isn’t until Wednesday and where I am in California is trying to take advantage of every last day of summer. While I swelter in this heat I am day dreaming about the cool weather and changing colors to come. I am still going through all of my terrific finds from Collabor88, so much so that I have several photos to share with you this week! I hope you’ve had a chance to see what they have to offer, or if you are anything like me that you have been back two or three times!

this is gonna take me down

Arcade Gacha is still open and there are so many things there that you don't want to miss. Most of the room in the pic above is made up from items at the arcade. Over in the corner is the Nomad Swan Taxidermy and for some strange reason I am obsessed with it. I am pretending that taxidermy happens AFTER the animal has lived a long happy life and dies of natural causes. Don't ruin this for me.

Dress, hair, skin and the beautiful build are from various designers at the latest round of Collabor88.

Arcade ends on the 30th, so only 10 days to get in and win all your faves. Collabor88 runs through the 6th but really, do you want to risk it? Not meee so I need to tp over and take a last look for both events.
