Winter lavender

I've always been a big fan of  Kaethe Dyrssen's Leafy skins, so I was really happy to see a new release - her first in ages - pop up in her Flickr feet. And, guess what, appliers are included... for Loud Mouth,  Nyam Nyam, Phat Azz, Tangos, and Slink Hands & Feet.

At the moment, there's just one pack of Mirabai available, which includes three skins in two pale tones with different brow options.  Also included are 25 different tattoo layers with makeups, freckles and so on, brow shapers, and cleavage enhancer layers.

The skin is young, fresh, and pretty; and I think 875L is not a bad price for what you get in the box. If you like pale skins, I definitely recommend that you grab a demo and check it out.

My outfit is new from Soedara - the very smexy Wyntir camisk.  It's hud-driven, letting you choose between five different tones and clean or dirty versions. You also get upper arm bands, bangles, and a belly jewel.

While short hair is not traditional for slaves, I thought this tousled style from Elua could make for some fun roleplay.… Read the rest

Resolutions and Regrets

  I have not made any New Year’s resolutions this year. I did not last year or the year before or any year that I can remember. It has never been part of our family tradition. Our family New Year’s was a day of family gathered together for feasting and fun. New Year’s Eve was never a drunkfest either. Instead, it was a day of housecleaning and food preparation. I have cleaned the over on New Year’s more times than I can count. It all comes from this idea of starting the year as you mean to go on − with a clean house and plenty of food and family to share it with. Of course, my family always served lutefisk for New Year’s dinner and that was most definitely not how I meant to go on. I asked on plurk if folks had regrets from 2014. Many people said they did not have any which is great for them. What I thought was most interesting is that several folks said they regretted that did not do something sooner. That means they did something that made things better for themselves and only wish they had done it earlier.… Read the restUntitled

The Perils of Ponchos

  I don’t know about you, but for me, ponchos have always been problematic. I bought my first poncho in Spain – knit with thick, luxurious wool and closing at the neckline with gorgeous unvarnished wood buttons. It was so warm and cozy and it felt like wearing a blanket, which meant it really needed to be worn on cold days. So here’s the thing. In Minnesota, if it’s cold enough to wear that poncho, it’s too cold to wear that poncho. The wind would blow up underneath and chill me to the bone. An engineering flaw for cold weather. So every time I see ponchos, I think of my few attempts wearing my gorgeous poncho and remember those bone-chilling gusts of wind sneaking in underneath and think – nope, not for me. What I needed was one more like this poncho from Zenith – to wear indoors kind of like a high fashion snuggle. But it’s Second Life and so even though there’s snow falling and the pond is frozen over, the winds that ruffle my hair are soft zephyrs carrying billowing warmth – not bone-chilling blasts from Polar Vortex.… Read the rest122714_005

Time To Get Back To Work

It was a lovely day and a half off but this Second Life isn’t going to live itself. I’m already resolved to stop eating so much junk and get back into my health avatar lifestyle. See, I’ve got my half orange at the ready.  I am not going to eat that cake. No really. I’m not. Well, maybe a little. I mean I don’t have to completely live like an ascetic do I? I’ve already been working this morning! I’m wearing two items you can pick up at FLF – this body suit from LUXURIA (Yay works on SLINK PHYSIQUE TOO) and these shoes from Livalle. I’m also sporting my beautiful Christmas Gift from Cajsa from EarthStones. And now I have to get ready for RL work. Will the tragedy in this day ever end? I think it might not. Put me on your prayer chain, it’s a long day of working for the man ahead! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Mmmmmmmm, Jackets

I dreamed I was there in Jacket Heaven and oh what a beautiful dream. But then, it was not a dream! Tres Blah really did release a perfect jacket in five metallics just in time for Christmas. I love jackets and need them desperately because so many tops and dresses are strapless. I don’t mind strapless in a formal, but for everyday – nope, not for me. I want some sleeves! These jackets are sold along with some cute rompers at N°21, the event that just opened yesterday. Yes, I hit teleport several times to get in, but once I was there, everything razzed easily and quickly and I cam-shopped happily. Speaking of formals, Baiastice has released the annual Winter Collection of formals just in time for the holidays and they are gorgeous. This classic comes with a regular skirt or one with a tulle overskirt. I elected to wear the tulle. I snapped a picture when I was over at The Liaison Collaborative picking up the necklace and earrings I am wearing. It’s beautifully decorated for the holidays.… Read the restSnapshot

Melancholy—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 14

Comfy Cozy

It’s so cold outside, but I am snug as a bug inside the little snuggery from tarte for The Arcade. With a wall of windows facing south I get enough sun to warm up. Of course, layering is the real secret to warmth. This lovely outfit from PixiCat for Collabor88 is not only warm as the rug that snugs the bug, but it is really an entire wardrobe. The leggings and the jacket come with texture-changing HUDS. The sweater is tentacle, so the only limit is statistical. Pixicat actually released more leggings, including ones with flowers, but these dotted ones appealed to me the most. Ingenue’s booties for Collabor88 are fabulous. They also have a texture-changing HUD to change the color of the foldover socks. By the way, you see that picture frame on the wall with the Christmas Tree picture? That is the packing box that the Dust Bunny Christmas tree came in. Instead of trashing it, I put it on the wall. You can find the tree at The Arcade. I am sort of in love with this pouf from Soy.… Read the restUntitled

Innovation

One of the most satisfying pleasures in Second Life® is witnessing moment of true innovation – the imaginative brainstorms of creative people that change our ideas of what is possible. We did not have prim hair or flexi hair until someone thought of it. And then everyone thought, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Once someone thinks of it – it seems so obvious, doesn’t it? Someone had to come up with the idea of a sculpted foot in a shoe. The Slink hands and feet were an innovation that sparked an explosion of mani/pedis and Slink-compatible shoes. I have seen capes and jackets before that come with poses so your arms go in the pockets, so when I first saw this cape from ISON, I did not realize how innovative it is. But those arms in my pockets are part of the cape. It comes with a collar and gloves that can be set to a range of colors using a HUD or turned off altogether. It’s magnificent and innovative and I wage we will see more outfits with built in gloves.… Read the rest112014_008

CAI as in Cairo, Zha as in Asia

There is no greater thrill for a fashionista than to have some design named after them. If you have a name many folks don’t know how to pronounce, it’s even more thrilling because it doesn’t happen very often. So, yes! I was thrilled when Thalia Heckroth named her newest gown in my honor. I was even more thrilled though, seeing it’s modern lines and minimalist style. I wore Fission’s black plaid pumps with criss-cross straps. I like the subtle pattern and it made an interesting contrast to the solid black of the dress. My hair is from D!va for October’s Collabor88 which is still open. The skin is from PXL Creations for Uber and the earrings were at Vintage Is Cool and are from EarthStones. You can see the subtle details of the draping on the dress’s bodice in this photo. Store info at Blogging Second Life

The Colors of Fall

Autumn has been painting its palette all across Second Life for the past month. I stopped by Izzie’s because it is always one of the most beautiful seasonal sims and sure enough, Izzie’s portrait of autumn is beautiful. In fact, it’s so lovely, I decided to use a paint filter on one of my snaps to turn it into a painting. If you stop by Izzie’s, don’t touch the kitty, she is shy.
I wore this lovely plaid halter dress from Goth1c0 – a find at Vintage Is Cool. I love the rich colors in the bodice and the flowing bias cut skirt. You can also see the gorgeous pumps from Fission that were released for My Slink Obsession. Shy kitty pays no attention to me as I pose about the apple tree. Here you get a full picture of the dress with its flowing skirt and the inset waist with button embellishments. That gorgeous undo is from Truth, from his newest release. The skin is from PXL Creations and can be found at Uber. The jewelry is from EArthStones, an old favorite from my closet.… Read the rest141025_006b

I didn’t feel so bad till the sun went down



The Seasons Story has been in full swing for a few weeks now and I hope you have at the very least been there once! I say at least once because there is so so much to see. I was lucky enough to be able to visit during set up but I have had to go back a few times because there is still so much to see and buy. It is their anniversary edition and a lot of the designers have out little gifts. Do tp over and check it out!

Everyone seems to love the autumn season and honestly, it makes me a little blue. I love summer and sun so when the temperature starts to get cooler, I can feel my mood changing. Don't get me wrong, I love the gorgeous colors and the cool air is a welcome relief to the very hot summer days but I will always prefer the summer.

One thing I do love very much about fall is the cozy feeling of it all. Sweaters, staying home with books to read, heater on and just that cozy feeling in your favorite spot of your home. Give and take,  I guess!

Sophia Harlow

I keep my lips red, they seem like cherries in the spring


Important stuff coming at you - Foxes released a selection of leather and lined aviator jackets and a cute cropped tshirt. Each jacket comes with a hood add on and a fur collar add on. Each collar and hud comes with a hud so you can choose the color you want. The crop tops come in a variety of colors and a few with writing on them. All adorable. All Cute. You need them all. They are available at n21 and can purchase some items separately but not all, so pay attention when you are buying. The specialty jackets - the ombre ones are limited edition and you will only ever be able to purchase them at this round of n21, so like don't cry later when you see them on the feeds and the event is over.
