A Puzzling Sunday

I’m having a lazy Sunday morning here in SL. I’ve been tied up in the RL and poor Gidge has been wearing the same shoes for a week. This is almost a tragedy except that they are adorable shoes from House of Hucci at this month’s Collabor88 and therefore, tragedy is averted. The teardrop chairs from FLOORPLAN (also at Collabor88) contain poses that you didn’t know you needed. But, you do. Like this one for instance. You need this, can’t you tell? It cracks me up. I’m determined to fit one more piece before I head out for today. I’m going to do it. I am! I am! Maybe more coffee is needed, I’m unsure. I wonder what’s going on and where I should head out TO? So many choices, any suggestions? Leave them in the comments if you have any! Gidge is Wearing:

How do you Hoodoo?


World Goth Fair is still going strong, with a little over a week left of the event. It officially ends on May 31st. There are so many musical things happening before then, which will be held at the Club Gothika. You can keep up to date on all the happenings on the Official Site HERE. I don’t often get a chance to cover Home&Garden items. I don’t own a home, never have. I have always thought the prims best used for other things, on the lands I own. It does create issues, when I do get the urge to cover something that isn’t fashion, or when I feel the need for an actual location to show something off properly. I picked up this gothic looking skybox from Roawenwood this week, as I felt it would work well with my WGF coverage. If it wasn’t roundish, I might have even used it as my work studio, haha. Alas, it is round, but gives me the ability to easily do setups. Much like a Turnip Skysdome, I can just plunk it down, and fill it with random stuff for the shots I need.… Read the restHelena Stringer - IOF - How do you Hoodoo - 1

It‘s Memories That I‘m Stealing

It’s such a sad old feeling
the fields are soft and green
it’s memories that I’m stealing
but you’re innocent when you dream
when you dream
you’re innocent when you dream Tom Waits   Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week wraps up today, though the shops will remain open for the month. Today I am wearing a top and skirt by Glitter called Lauren. It comes with a HUD that allows you to pick six texture options for the top and the skirt. I went for the solid black top and the black skirt with a pinstripe inset. The top is very short and just barely covers the nipples, leaving the underside of the breasts bare. That’s not my preference, so I added a bodysuit from Sn@tch, using their applier for the Slink Physique so I did not have to worry about the Glitter top fitting over the Sn@tch top. Besides, I think the teal and black lace adds a nice touch.    I was feeling melancholy and stopped by Serene Sanctuary to enjoy the peaceful surroundings.… Read the restGlitter Top and Skirt, Sn@tch shirt, Glamistry Shoes, Lelutka and Slink Mesh Body/Head and Glam Affair skin

Zanze at Penumbra Fashion Week

    Zanze has a large collection of fabulous outfits for Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week. My favorite is this Strathmere skirt and top.  I love the loose, breezy easiness and the bold, bright colors.
  I stopped by The Trace Too for the photos It’s a lovely beach and the sky was gorgeous.   Here you can see the entire outfit. The skirt is full length, reading the ground where it pools, revealing the lining, the same fabric as the top and the skirt inset on the side.    I wanted bold jewelry so I looked in my Mandala folder and found these gorgeous bangles. The mani/pedi is from FLAIR – where you can always find the perfect choice. I added the Fynn short bob from Truth with a black and white polka dot scarf. The makeup is from Glam Affair, the Megan appliers for the Lelutka mesh heads. Store info at Blogging Second Life ****SHOPPING LIST******

Wrapped In The Silence Of Distance

“For time is the longest distance between two place.”

I got out my regular face today and decided to take Alaska Metro for a spin as my skin.  She makes such a lovely face, I wish she had Lelutka appliers – I do love her makeups. If you didn’t pick up this perfect trench at COLLABOR88 from Emery well there’s still time and heck it’s a few days past opening you can probably even get in now! RIGHT!? Alaska Metro also recently released these gorgeous nail appliers for SLINK nails. Very subtle but lovely. It’s a quickie today. More later for sure! Gidge is Wearing:

My Armour Is Glitter My Heart Still Waits

Penumbra fashion week continues and today I’m sharing a gorgeous slinky gown that is perfect.  I hadn’t done a proper fashion blogger standing around with random objects shoot for a while, so I felt like this was a good day for that. The dress comes with a HUD that’s perfectly simply and allows you to get four dresses out of one.  I let me five year old pic the colors I shot today. I think she did pretty well. Jumping on this tire swing in this so very formal gown reminded me of my favorite prom, where we went to a Carnival after dinner, wearing our gorgeous formal wear and riding about on the rides was ridiculously fun.  There is a lovely symmetry when joy and beauty collide. Happy Sunday my pretties, make it a good one. Itsonlyfashionblog

The Light Wraps You in its Mortal Flame

Pablo Neruda’s Poema 2 came to mind today and I wanted to share it. Here is the complete poem in English. En su llama mortal la luz te envuelve.
Absorta, pálida doliente, así situada
contra las viejas hélices del crepúsculo
que en torno a ti da vueltas. The light wraps you in its mortal flame.
Abstracted pale mourner, standing that way
against the old propellers of the twilight
that revolves around you. I am wearing the Haussman gown from JUMO for Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week. June Monteiro has gone wild creating a new collection of imaginative and exciting gowns. This one is probably the tamest! That will give you an idea of what is in store for you at Penumbra Fashion Week. It opened today, so get thee hence. The dress has three attachments to create that wonderful burst of feathers – propellers of twilight revolving around you. JUMO also released this Hausmann jewelery – bracelets and earrings that work well with the dress.… Read the rest150516_003

The Necessity of Bikinis In SL

I’ve probably bought more bikinis than anything else in SL and let’s face it, there’s a reason. Living an idyllic waterside life is something a lot of us don’t have, and even when we aren’t ocean front as I am at this time, we usually have a pool in SL or a friend does. Pool parties, beach parties and the like are a staple food of social time. Consequently the item I’ve most often rushed out to find a  “new” one of is a bikini.   Luxe Paris released a pareo and top that are perfect for your waterside social events, in a print that says ITS SUMMER AND FUN LET’S CELEBRATE, for Penumbra Fashion Week. I am even thinking I need to spend more time out at my beach after wearing it around yesterday. I’m also of the opinion that there isn’t anything as awesome as your mesh bod in a bikini. What diet do I have to go on in RL to look like THAT? I’m still playing with the multitude of appliers for the Lelutka Mesh Head from Adam n Eve, gorgeous choices abound.… Read the rest

All the Donuts Have Names That Sound Like Prostitutes

This Prey jacket for Penumbra Spring Summer Fashion Week goes over a coordinating corset. It seems like a capelet with short sleeves. It has long points that drop down and  from which a silver spikes are suspended. Here you can see the point drops to the mid back. I have spent a good portion of my life on buses; school buses, tour buses, Greyhound and Trailways buses and public transit buses. Of course, that means I have also spent a good portion of my life waiting for buses. Among the many places I have waited, the most interesting, entertaining, freaky, funny, scary and downright wild place is Hennepin Avenue in Minneapolis on Saturday night. I would get off work at the planetarium just as the demi-monde was coming to life, late enough that missing one bus meant a long wait for the next one. A woman alone was often presumed to be on the stroll, so I had the “pleasure” of turning down many propositions. I am told that the infamous Block E where I would wait has been leveled and a new entertainment mall has replaced it.… Read the rest150514_002

Back To The Beach

STELLAR just released new bathing suits for your SLINK bod and I had to go pick up a set so I could lounge around the beach at JUICY. It’s fun to mix and match colors and pink with green is one of my favorite combos. I was just at the beach in RL so it was perfect to park Pixel Gidge there while I was away. Adam n Eve have released new appliers for your Lelutka head and I’m still loving them. They’ve been out a few days but they’re gorgeous. And now I just got home, as I’ve been gone for days and I’m exhausted in both lives. See you pretties later! Gidge is Wearing: Bikini: STELLAR for SLINK Body

It’s Always Like This

The new lounge seat for outdoor relaxing at Collabor88 is from Second Spaces and I was excited to see it comes in a pink washed wood tone.  Obviously this one is my favorite.

Waiting…anticipating

I am uncommonly good at waiting. I do not know why; I do not have any particular fondness for delayed gratification. I would just as soon never have to wait at all. Nonetheless, I have so many ways to make the time pass that waiting does not bother me. I usually bring a book to read everywhere I go in case there are unanticipated delays. Sometimes there are delays long enough that I finish the book, but I still have distractions. I watch people going by and compose descriptions of them. I try to note all the details, the type of clothing, the fabrics and patters, the hair, makeup and accessories. You should try it sometime. It is an entertaining way to people watch. Sometimes, I get caught out staring, so I simply smile and say something like “I was admiring your scarf, is it silk?” There are some fashion events coming soon and I have been waiting and waiting and waiting. One, Collabor88, opens in an hour. The other, Penumbra’s Spring/Summer Fashion Week opens on May 16th.… Read the rest150507_004

Void Fill

PXL Creations has released a new skin with a new tone for Fantasy Faire complete with tattoos for your face if you want to embrace your animal huntress side. I’m hunting lately but it’s not an animal. I’m hunting for something lost. I don’t know what it is, but I decided Omega Point was as good of a place to find it as anywhere. The problem with not knowing what’s missing is that you don’t always know where to look. You also don’t know if you’ll find it when you see it or feel it. How do you find the mystery when it’s undefined? Perhaps it’s simply self that’s missing. I don’t know where to get that back. The Archangel behind me seems to have a clear sense of purpose. Is that Michael?  Or perhaps it’s a god from some other mythos, I can’t recall. Definitely seems rooted in a purpose though. I envy that more than a bit. My tolerance levels are low. It’s probably time to change things and find the voidfill.… Read the rest

One Hunt, Three Heads and a Big Skin Sale

I love the adorable floral blouse and skater skirt that NYU just released for the Wayward Hunt. You will have to hunt for it at the main store because this color will not be sold after the hunt is over. I always love separates because that gives me options to wear the pieces with other items. I stopped by the beach at Terracotta but I did not wade in as I have new shoes from Ingenue (available at this month’s Collabor88 for now) and wanted to keep them dry.
Here you can see the front of the NYU outfit. I love the details both from and back. There is a simplicity that demonstrates NyuNyu Kimono has the confidence to resist the temptation to embellish. The jewelry is from EArthStones and includes matching ring, earrings and necklace that can be touch-changed to select metal and gems. I am also wearing one of the three new Lelutka mesh heads. I experimented and found that the Glam Affair appliers from other heads work just fine, so I applied the Europa 03 applier for the Aria mesh head.… Read the rest150426_002

Get My Cup, Put Some Liquor In It

Despite my current space restraints I couldn’t resist installing the new bar from Trompe Loeil in my house. I needed “something” in this room and I’ve found it. A full service bar that works from BOTH sides – PERFECT!  Doing this reminds me of Bobby Flay jumping on the cutting board on Iron Chef and the Japanese chefs were all disgusted by that – please don’t tell my guests I did this. I should have some guests ….speaking of that. I picked up new makeup for my Lelutka head from IZZIE’S and I am gonna confess, this is the Gidgiest of them ALL. Thus far, if my count is correct, you can get appliers from Glam Affair, Adam N Eve and Izzie’s. Am I missing anyone? Please let me know if so, because I want to grab them – these heads are awesome and Aria is GIDGE these days more often than not! I am hoping that soon other creators can get their hands on the development kits. I wonder when that will happen? My eyes are from Poetic Colors and they are freebies that are out at the store right now.… Read the rest

Pardon Me, Is This Wall Taken ?

It’s never the best idea to blog in SL while on pain meds, at least not for me. If my fashion details are to be believed, i’m wearing four sets of hands and two heads right now.  I seem to look ok though, so I’m going with it. Who even knows? I had to have some oral surgery in the RL which involved gas, and cutting, and horrible scraping sounds inside my head. I’m on day 2 of recovery and since my RL children can’t be sent back to inventory I was left with no choice but to get up for a bit. I thought I should spend some time feeling and looking prettier than I am in RL at the moment. I’m really loving the Chelsea appliers from Adam n Eve for the Lelutka heads. I’m still calling Aria my favorite but I understand that there are some new ones on the way soon. I can’t wait. Maybe Gidge will find a new face? You never know. I added the freckle options on the Adam N Eve Chelsea applier – it’s a really nice natural look for beauty marks.… Read the rest

There’s Only So Much

Adam n Eve released appliers for the Lelutka mesh head and I had to try them out this morning. I wasn’t feeling like getting dressed. Who knew that I’d end up feeling not doing nothing for the rest of today, and this would be the sum of my accomplishments today? Well, it could be worse. I could’ve said the word FUCK a record number of times in meetings today. Oh wait, that actually happened. Nevermind. Oh well, I never claimed not to have a potty mouth.   Itsonlyfashionblog.com
