Without a Thought or Purpose

I got up early to enjoy the sweet nectar of coffee and get some things done around the house. Sway invented the perfect coffee mug for us addicts to enjoy our morning brew. You can pick it up at the Arcade as one of the free fits. Awesome right?   I made myself a healthy breakfast but find myself drawn to the sweets left on my table. Why must it be so hard to be healthy? Did i eat the sweets or the healthy food? You’ll never know. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Great Minds Thinking Alike

Gidge is my favorite person in Second Life and among my favorites in my first life, too. So, it’s no surprise we sometimes think alike and dress alike. Our mutual love for this dress from Nylon Outfitters was unplanned, but you know, I thought about reshooting with a different color, but I changed my mind. I like the black one best, and really, it’s a case of great minds thinking alike. By the way, if you like this dress, get yourself over to Collabor88 now because it’s the last day. I don’t like candy corn, but these critters crack me up. One of my favorite items from The Arcade this month. It’s amazing how they with their simplistic form still manage to express emotions. There’s some popcorn for all the drama from Lost Junction and a fun plastic table and stools from PLAAKA – all at The Arcade. I think they could be dangerous. The Yummy necklace and earrings crack me up as well, and I think they are perfect with this dress.… Read the restAll the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911. Lewis Black

Death, Sex and Noodles

I knew exactly what aesthetic I was seeking when I went looking for a place to shoot yesterday. But then I got caught up in search and this place had “sex and death” in the description and I couldn’t resist. I don’t know what I anticipated finding, but noodle shops and what seems to be a toy store of sorts wasn’t it. There were some mannequins strewn about, I suppose they’re being sexy for my viewing pleasure? I’m not entirely certain. Mostly I was like this. What can I say? I’m a prude. At least some things never change? Collabor88 is where you’ll find my flawless dress, shoes and hair today and you can still hop over to pick them up – it’s not too late! Now, what else to do now that sex, death and noodles are out of the way? Itsonlyfashionblog.com

I Love Summer

Good afternoon girls, how’s your Friday going? I’ve got some shopping to do it looks like, but I wanted to hop in and remind all of you that everyone’s favorite monthly event COLLABOR88 is still happening. I know I know, our beloved Arcade is kicked off and I’m just as excited as you – really the cross over of those two events quarterly is a bit like shopping nirvana but, end of the month at Collabor88 is BLISS. All the amazing goodies are still there at the awesome Collabor88 prices but – THE CROWDS are so much better now. The older my avatar gets, the more she loves the END of events. It’s true, I love to savor all of it and take my time and we all know crowds just aren’t good for that. It occurs to me I slapped on this new Lelutka head and loved it and didn’t try the rest. HOW UNFAIR to them all! I’ve got to remedy that TODAY!! Now, where to shop first…..FLF might need some shopping attention from me.… Read the rest

If I Waited

The Great Gatsby declared that No Sir, the right girl wouldn’t wait at all. She’d move on, it seems. She wouldn’t wait for your dumb ass to catch up with her, or get in sync. She’d never wait for someone who didn’t pull into her lane and come along. There may be wisdom in that, but there’s heartbreak too. Gatsby then spends his life chasing Daisy and we all know where that lead him. Personally I did end up having to wait a few days for my typist to show back up but then I was put in mind to wonder what else I’ve been waiting on. Beginnings or endings? Which is it? It doesn’t matter, because time continues to roll and I’m going with it, it seems. I’m decked out in some goodies you can still pick up at Collabor88 this month, which is perfect because you need them and this event is, as always, chocked full of goodness. But don’t wait on this one. After all, the right girl wouldn’t wait for anyone. Gidge is Wearing:

Plastic Fantastic

Since the JustBecause pants and the Moon Amore top are both color change, this outfit has about eleventy million options.
 These shoes from Garbaggio also come in a few dozen options, though they are pre-selected. I liked the pink and yellow, but they are more than that, the heel cap is green and the stiletto is red. Wasabi Pills has a cute long hair style. It comes with a fun little headband, but I liked it better without. The necklace is from Tentacio. Isn’t that necklace adorable? I am wearing the new Spencer head from Lelutka with Glam Affair’s Spencer makeup, using the HUD to tone down the color of the lipstick and eyeshadow a bit. There is a vulnerability to Spencer that I really like. ****SHOPPING LIST******

You Can’t Be Both New And Improved

My friend Sands made some new stuff that I decided to slip into tonight. It’s always weird when your male friends make lingerie but not nearly as weird as when your friends are skinners and you think things like “wow I really like my new vagina well done friend!” SL is a weird place.  It could be lingerie, it could be a swimsuit. I’m unsure because I have traditionally swapped both for one another in SL.  Regardless I love the colors he uses as always, I like variety and playing mix and match. I might go for a swim. It’s night time but since I’m overlord of the sun here, who knows what I’ll do. I’m taking another Lelutka head for a spin – this one is MAY. I really do like her. She’s quite pretty. Have you gone over and demo’d the new heads yet? WHY NOT? Itsonlyfashionblog.com

New Heads New You

I am trying out one of the new heads from Lelutka and I’m excited to try the others.  Lelutka remains my favorite head and I’m anxious to familiarize myself with the bells and whistles these new releases have. I’m playing with the moods and I think I’m going to be irked natural spicy. Spicy makes me laugh. I’m also trying out new makeup from Glam Affair.  Bianca is so pretty, and I love this bold eye make up. Perfect for a Monday kinda day, which it is. I’ve got a lot playing with new things to do. I’m kind of excited! This update gives us even more ways to make our heads “us”, which is perfect. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Vacation Shot

I wandered around Sansar the other day and was struck by it’s amazing beauty. I’ll post about it and share soon. It reminded me, however, how lovely our own virtual world can be. It’s easy to forget. I thought I would show you a pic of my lazy summer vacation to share, and I left it on default windlight to boot. Here is our pretty SL – with no edits, just raw from my screen. It’s pretty lovely.

We’re Off On The Road To ChouChou

This month’s Collabor88 theme of Roadtrip has had me singing various ROAD songs from the old Bing Crosby and Bob Hope ROAD TO… movies. They are terrible, they are camp, but good grief they can still give me a giggle. They remind me of being little and them being on the local channels on a Saturday or Sunday morning, appropriate family fare on a family day. I decided to travel back to ChouChou because it’s been a minute since I was there. If you haven’t been, it’s complete with a piano in the sand which always equals art. How can you go wrong? Today I’m trying out some pretty new eyes made by my friend ROSE who owns Banana Banshee. I’m not normally a green eyed girl but these are pretty. Now I’ve got some other SL things I’ve got on my to do list for today. Happy Saturday girls. Hope your shopping and shagging are satisfying. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Bikini Babes of Collabor88

I love summer in SL. Even though summer is actually available to us always and never has to stop, I’ve realized I need to embrace the seasons there and make them special. Thus – summer joy is upon me when I saw these great bikinis out for the offering at Collabor88 this month. I’ve never been a “bits hanging out girl” despite the appeal that some of those seem too have for SL. I like a bit more tradition and these bikinis fit the bill for me. Probably my favorite thing is that you can mix up the colors on the bits of them to change your look, coordinate with your hair, whatever suits your fancy. Personally I was in a pink and purple mood today, can you tell? I’ve been a bit MIA lately because now and again life gets in the way, but here I am, like the bad penny. I always turn up. Get over to the July round of Collabor88 and check out what’s new and awesome. You won’t be sorry. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

And Just Like That It’s Bandana Day

Bandana Day is upon us once again. It’s a stern reminder of why we have the Hair Fair each year which is much more about others than us.  It’s not just a shopping event, yet we do love to shop. It’s an event where we come together and the lindens we spend help others. The RL has plagued me more than usual and kept poor Pixel Gidge trapped on her island alone, but she did make a foray into the Hair Fair. She has a ritual, before she buys anything, she seeks the bandanas. Why? Because they people that make them, make them with LOVE. They don’t make a dime out of it, they don’t benefit, in fact it costs them time and creativity. Yet every year people make them. Hell even I made them a year or two – until the trappings of mesh put them beyond my own skills. I’m proud to stand here for the “I don’t Know How Many Years In a Row” time and say I supported Wigs for Kids and Hair Fair once again. Thank you Sasy and Whimsy and whomever else poured their time and love into making this event happen.… Read the rest

If Life Gives You Bandanas, Make Bandanda Day

Lelutka’s Bandanda Day contributions to Hair Fair are always a work of art. Bandana Day is always the last day of Hair Fair to remind us, after celebrating our crowning glory for two glorious weeks, that sometimes people lose their hair for a host of reasons. The purpose of Hair Fair, despite how we may feel, is not just about making us look good, it’s about prompting us to do good with our shopping dollars, to raise money for Wigs For Kids. So Bandana Day is a reminder, there’s a more serious underlying purpose than just making us look good. The Boho chic of the Lelutka Bandana day is perfect for the Boho chic of Baiastice new offerings for Epiphany – a complete explosion of Boho clothing and paraphernalia. The only thing missing is the hookah. My skin and makeup and even my mani-pedi are all from AlaskaMetro. Photography by Cajsa Lilliehook

Hair Fair Is Almost Over But Collabor88 Is Full Throttle

Only one more day of Hair Fair, one more day to find gorgeous hair and raise money for Wigs for Kids. This blog will show a few of the EnVOGUE hairs for the designer I profiled earlier today. I will also show of the fun outfit from Hucci that makes me thing I should try salsa dancing. Other highlights are some fun sandals from Pure Poison and crazy bold earrings from Mon Cheri – all at Collabor88. I will let the photos speak for themselves.

Meet the Hair Fair Designers: Casandra Rain of EnVOGUE

It’s Only Fashion interviewed EnVOGUE’s Casandra Rain who offered several styles at Hair Fair 2017. What drew you to designing hair? When did you start? What are some of the changes that were most significant for you? I am a woman … so how is a woman ? Never has enough clothes … enough shoes …. and enough Hair. Because once in 2014, I needed badly a hairstyle that I could not find back then in SL, I have decided to make it myself since I have experience in RL with 3D programs. That hairstyle is a retro one … never was for sale in mainstore and never will be, is just for myself Lorelay for Hair Fair, photo by Cajsa How did you choose your store name? Does it have a special meaning for you? enVOGUE is a french expression for something trendy, fashion and elegant. I always like to check real life hairstyles and sometimes I request ideas from costumers to help me create something they want. So it has a special meaning for me because it shows how much I care for what people believe that are good haircuts to come from RL fashion catwalks and magazines to SL streets Sea Mist by Eurídice Qork

There’s a Boat That’s Leaving Soon for New York

One of my favorite songs ever is “There’s a Boat That’s Leaving Soon for New York” from Porgy and Bess as sung by Phoebe Snow. This promenade on Staten Island made me think of the song. To be honest, lots of things make me think of this song. It’s on my iPod and I play it frequently. Her voice was amazing and she was a heroic woman. There’s a boat that’s leaving soon for New York
Come with me
That’s where we belong, baby
You and me can live that high life in New York
Come with me
There we can’t go wrong, baby
We’ll live in the swellest mansion
Up on upper 5th avenue
And through Harlem we’ll go struttin’, we’ll go struttin’
And there’ll be nothin’ too good for you
You’ll dress me in silks and satins
In the latest Paris styles
And all your blues you’ll be forgettin’
You’ll be forgettin
There’ll be no frettin’
Just nothing but smiles There’s a boat that’s leaving soon for New York
Come with me
That’s where we belong
That’s where we belong
That’s where we belong
That’s where we belong
I mean that’s where we belong ****SHOPPING LIST******

Meet the Hair Fair Designers: Cyanideslushy of Mello

Lucid Dreamer by Cyanideslushy What drew you to designing hair? When did you start? What are some of the changes that were most significant for you? I was painting and working on artwork most of the time and just using Second Life to explore and take photos. I was looking for certain hairs I wanted to use and couldn’t find any so I just decided “hmmm I think I’m gonna learn how to make this stuff” and off I went! It’s been a long journey of Eureka! moments and wanting to throw my computer out of a window [lol] but overall I’d say it’s been amazing. I’m constantly learning new things everyday and it never ends, there is always something out there to learn and discover How did you choose your store name? Does it have a special meaning for you? How did you go about choosing your avatar name? Oh man, I went through so many different names at first and none of them would stick. I was even getting yelled at by friends like “pick a name already!” and one night I was listening to a song and thought “man this is a pretty mellow track” and it hit me that I wanted to use the word Mellow, after messing around with a logo I decided to just toss the “w” out and use Mello instead and tada that’s how I became Mello.… Read the restLucid Dreamer
