Oh The Insolence

Insolence has decided to return to the land of the living MESH Lingerie that we can wear on our Maitreya bodies! Word on the street is that lingerie for Belleza and SLINK bodies are coming soon as well. If you’re old enough you’ll remember Insolence as one of the best brands that stood the test of time but with the advent of mesh world their products got shelved by most of us. I’m very excited to see them back on point. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Zaara at Collabor88

Zaara released a wonderful three-part outfit at Collabor88 this month. I always prefer it when designers release their outfits as separates. This allows us to wear the tops with other skirts, shorts, or jeans. We can wear different tops, even sweaters, with the skirt. To top it all off, there is this beautiful belt that is a perfect complement to the skirt, but I can picture looking fabulous on a sweater or body-con dress.

Zaara’s Ziya tiered skirts are sold in sets of two, a solid and a print. Both the Ziya skirts and the Anisha tops come in a full spectrum of colors. The Boho wrap belts come in several colors too, with gold and silver options. The variety of colors and prints are joyful, the entire set is like a joy booster shot. I dug out these Zaara Sachi sandals that I knew were hiding somewhere in my closet. They were released a few months back by Zaara and fit right in, not just with the colors, but with the entire bohemian essence of the outfit. This picture shows you the lovely open back of Zaara’s Anisha top and the wild disarray of the Monso Hayeong hair for Collabor88.… Read the rest“Pure, intense emotions. It’s not about design.

Meeting Commitments

It’s only day 2 of Blogtober and I’m fueling up with soup while I work on editing photos. I’m ready for the challenge…and Sophia is gonna have to work hard because I am pretty competitive. I was going to make it easy on her and take today off…but no.  I’m chatting away while I work with this talking head from NOMAD you can pick up at COLLABOR88. It gives out questions and then I answer them, he listens oh so attentively which I truly appreciate. He CARES about what I have to say, he’s the PERFECT man! I bet Sophia can’t hang spoons… Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Blogtober…The Mainstore Challenge

My friend Sophia said “I need someone to commit to blogging every day with me to help motivate me.” I personally need that too because I’ve gotten so lazy, lounging about looking pretty in the same clothes for days – LIKE A PEASANT. So I answered her back and told her it’s ON. We decided we’re calling it BLOGTOBER and it’s an opportunity to refresh our brains, re-energize our passion and get back to what we love. I challenged her to go shop at a mainstore, NOT an event post, for our first day of commitment and so here I am, slathered in Sn@tch. My dress AND hair is from Sn@tch and who knew Ivey was making hair? I picked up a pastel pack of hair for fun and I really do like it, I’m going to have to start counting Sn@tch on my list of hairdressers. If you haven’t been in a while, I do recommend stopping by to check out the wonderful at that place.  It’s far and wide. My skin today is from PXL Creations – Heidi for Catwa.… Read the rest

Don’t Get Froggy…or Do?

I’ve lived a lot of places and I tend to take “sayings” from those places with me when I move. One of my favorites was “Don’t get froggy” when meant – don’t JUMP into something, either with attitude or just generally sticking your nose in where it didn’t belong. If you started to start mouthing off into something that wasn’t going to go well for you, a friend would say “Oh don’t get froggy.” It always made me laugh. I’m reminded of frogginess this morning (is that even a word?) because I’m messing about with a new (old but revisited) photo editor. I don’t have PS and have always just used free online editors to crop and play with my photos. Picmonkey has decided it wants money and well honestly, I’m not sure I love it enough to pay for it. I might. But I’m not making that decision today. Instead I hopped back over to ribbet.com and I’m now wondering why I ever left it?… Read the rest

I Am House Hunting – Or Is It Hunting Me?

I could not resist the temptation to try out the new house from Scarlet Creative at COLLABOR88 this month. Such a lovely, cozy space, I thought maybe, JUST MAYBE I would make a change. Fall is the time I often switch houses and despite missing my tree houses I was thinking perhaps this one is the one? Maybe I should settle into this snug space with it’s interesting little alcoves and hallways?  I keep feeling something though, as I wander through the rooms, taking in it’s measure. I feel like, I’m not alone. No one is here on our island today, I’m all alone. But something feels…off. I can’t shake this feeling of something breathing near me. I don’t know why I feel this way.

Gidgeus Maximus

It’s been a dull roar for some time that I should try out a CATWA head. I confess, I haven’t really much looked into it. I went over once and looked at them and their vendor ads made me feel like I was on a strange planet and so at that point I figured it wasn’t for me. Anything I have to think too much about is truly too much work in my SL. I’m a lazy girl. This isn’t new. If it IS new, you must have just joined our program already in session. However, having seen some amazing photos over the past few months and the conversion of people I like and respect has given way to a feeling of “Hmmm, perhaps I should check them out again.” A perfect storm occurred during my AM log in today. First of all, over at Juicybomb Gogo had purchased a head JUST to blog a skin she loved.  Next while sipping coffee and chatting with some of my girls Kitty and Luna I was encouraged to go and GET ALL THE HEADS AND TRY THEM ALL. So dammit, I did exactly that. The first part of my quest was simply to find a Gidgey enough face.… Read the rest


My new dog doesn’t seem to realize that I’m CLEANING today. He apparently decided that what I really wanted to do was have a bigger mess! I don’t know about you, but the last thing I really like is for stuff to get completely drenched in soggy dog dirt after I get it clean. Now, this own’t do at all….BAD DOG! He doesn’t seem at all motivated to stop. I’m going to send him off to the Kennel Inventory soon if he doesn’t cut it out, I tell you what. A girl can only take so much doggie related chaos on a Sunday morning. All this AND laundry waiting for me today. This Sunday is the worst. Help help, I’m being oppressed. You can pick up a lot of today’s items to complete the narrative of your SL – hopefully less dirty than mine, at THE ARCADE which is STILL open folks! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Pizza for Breakfast

The Arcade will be winding up in a few days and let’s face it, it’s PRIMO time to get in there and complete your collections. The Early Shoppers throngs are gone, you can move around without lag and the goods in the machines are all as awesome as they were DAY ONE. I decided that what I would do was make a run, right after I had some delicious PIZZA for breakfast. I need to keep up my strength. It’s tiring work,, all this shopping, so this comfy sofa from Sari Sari is working well for me as I relax my aching feet and back from lugging back my goods. What were your favorites this round? Did you manage to pick up the items you wanted the most? I’m now going to figure out if I should permapet my last kitty that I do keep about or if I’m going to buy something I don’t need. Decisions, decisions…who know.

Domestic Suits Her

I’m a simple pixel girl and this time of year i’m always excited about the myriad of goodies that start appearing for my kitchen. Yes I’m a pixel baker, I can’t help it. I never have to worry about the calories – so what’s the problem anyway right?  My joy is kicked off with the pieces at Collabor88 from What Next.  I’m also wearing a great skirt set from Lazybones also at Collabor88 this month. This round is so cozy and comfy, I’m ready for fall weather for sure. I was excited to see the Skinnery release a new skin for Lelutka, she’s a pretty face. I accidentally forgot to take off my Lara Hurley moles and hey they look great so I’m going to wear it this way. Some people might not approve of the disparity between my eyebrow color and my hair. To those people I would say “Bitch please, you know I’m not a natural blonde.” Get to Collabor88 while this round is going strong and stock up on this month’s cozy goodies.… Read the rest

Never Settle

I haven’t been a fan of hairbases since I first put on my Lelutka Aria head. I just never felt like I saw a hairbase that didn’t “off” or somehow just fake. Leave it to Lelutka to knock hairbases out of the part with a whole new line of hairstyles that not only look great with the hairbase attached but simply look completely natural.  My friend Gogo has some great shots of all four styles HERE http://juicybomb.com/2016/09/18/everything-is-okay/ . I’m also showing you some amazing new purple eyes from Banana Banshee. She’s been making eyes like a CRAZY person lately, tons of new releases. If you haven’t tried her eyes – NOW IS THE TIME girls. Her colors are beautiful and it’s a perfect time of year to freshen up your look with some new eyes. You can pick up the perfect shade of autumn eyes for your self at her MP store https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/74286 or at her location IN WORLD which you can hop to via http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Odumin/93/228/46  .… Read the rest

Death by Chocolate Is a Myth

This I Know, Because I lived
I’ve been around for broken hearts and how Death by crying doesn’t exist, though
The headaches feel a bit like it
You might explode
But you reach the end of the road
And you, little tree
I’m certain you will grow Tears on your pillow will dry and you will learn
Just how to love again
Oh my weeping willow
Let your leaves fall and return

Life Is Uncertain, Eat Dessert First

The veggie tray, apple pie, salt and pepper shakers and waffle iron can all be found at The Arcade. The uncertainties of life are manifest every day. Some uncertainties are harder than others. My sister has Stage IV lung cancer. But her future is still uncertain, it’s quite possible the chemo will kill her long before the cancer can. She’s been in the hospital for two weeks now as a mold has developed in her lungs, thanks to chemo bringing her white blood cell count down to zero. On Thursday, I learned she has developed VRE, a anti-biotic resistant bacteria similar but much more rare than MRSA, the OMG of countless House episodes. Of course, because when you are going to ER three times a day for 90 minute infusions of antibiotics, you develop anti-biotic resistant bacteria. I think it is time for her to eat a lot of dessert. Ice cream, apple pie, chocolate cake, brownies and coffee nips. Go for it!
This skirt is exactly like the ones I prefer in my first life.… Read the restLife is uncertain, eat dessert first.

Throw Some Southern Shade

I had a tremendous giggle when I saw the name of one of EXILE’S hairs for Collabor88 this month. Southern Shade might evoke images of willow treas, or Georgia pine cooling you down on a humid southern morning. Or if you’re me, and your typist is a girl living in the south of the US immediately you come to think of all those terms that sound nice but just aren’t – most of the time anyway. BLESS YOUR HEART might be the most famous of these, but this one is a tricky one. Bless your heart can be sincere. Something terrible has happened? Oh…bless your heart. You blew off your own eyebrows lighting gunpowder next to your face? BLESS YOUR HEART insert the tone. With Southern Shade being thrown it’s really all about tone.  It doesn’t translate well in text, but in person the sticky sweet southern accent can make even “Well I hope everyone is ok” sound like “Burn in the fires of hell”. It’s a special gift reserved for ladies of the south, this type of shade.… Read the rest

Freshen It Up

It’s important to freshen up your avatar look from time to time. We switch out our hair willy nilly but sometimes we can forget how nice it can be to update some of the basics – like eyes. If you haven’t ever tried Banana Banshee eyes, Rose has been around for a while making eyes so she knows what she’s doing. While she doesn’t just make eyes, that’s what I’m talking about today. I’m trying out her Soul 2 eyes fatpack. She’s got a nice range of blues, from gentle icy blues to children of the corn bright if that’s your thing. She also features pretty greens, browns and even a red for you about to be possessed for Halloween Times. She also features black sclera versions for all you folks who like to role play or just rock a completely different kind of look. I’m wearing her ice blue and I really like it, it’s a pretty but subtle blue and looks very natural.  I did not shoot all of the colors available in her fatpack, just a few to show you.… Read the rest

Sunday Morning Solitude

Sometimes I have too much solitude in my SL. You’d think a place full of avatars looking to make fuck might be rife with social opportunities but you’d be wrong. It’s strange how the isolation can wear on you, after years and years.  Lucky for me The Arcade this round presented me with an opportunity to have new friends in my life, and these lovely labs will now be part of my SLife. They’re always happy to see me and never make me feel alone. I love these guys. I’ve got my iced coffee and I’m ready to face my day! If you noticed my new eyes, they’re from Banana Banshee. I’m going to be showing you them more in depth when I’m not stumbling around in a caffeine addicted fog. Until then – Happy Sunday girls. Let’s all stay pretty! itsonlyfashionblog.com

Its Only Fashion 2016-09-01 15:06:13

I recently finished a book my sister gave me, “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch. I really like one of the things Pausch said, “The size of your audience doesn’t matter. What’s important is that your audience is listening.” It’s interesting, I think, what draws people in. However, with events like Collabor88, they can not only boast about the size of their audience, but also that they audience listens (shops). August is the anniversary month for Collabor88 and they always invite all the guests from the entire year for a blowout showcase. Collabor88 will continue until the 6th, so while you are waiting for an opening at The Arcade, don’t forget that there is an other event, a real extravaganza happening at the same time. I will be blogging more about the Arcade soon, but really could not pass up featuring this lovely Angelic dress from Blueberry. With the HUD, there were so many options that I sort of drifted into the meditative haze of changing the dress, the upper feathers, the lower feathers, and then changing them again and again and again.… Read the restThe size of your audience doesn't matter.

Angel of The Arcade

I spent my morning at the blogger preview for The Arcade and I have to confess, again I’m so amazed at all of the beautiful things being offered. This post isn’t about those things. One of the other things I’m always enamored of is how gorgeously the event is landscaped. It’s a beautiful build in a magical, almost otherworldly setting. I love to just walk around take in the scenery, relax as I watch the waves roll in. My look today comes from Collabor88 which is still celebrating it’s birthday and there is a dizzying array of pretty things for the having this month. My dress is from Blueberry – I love the angel wings touch. Makes me feel heaven sent. The ARCADE opens in two days – are you ready? Itsonlyfashionblog.com
