23/04/2018 – The grass seems greener on the other sim

So, last Monday, I spent the best part of my day setting up for Fantasy Faire. I have OCD so you can imagine how having everything in the exact right spot is vital to me. Turns out, Alia Baroque’s gorgeous sim, Aetherea, suffers from an illness that the Linden are unable to identify (they find it “interesting”) and the sim isn’t working properly. On Saturday we were asked to please set up out most important vendors on a mini Aetherea, and this morning, I woke up to a notecard telling me to copy my whole set up to a mirror sim. I had a complete meltdown. Due to ONE item that appeared to be no copy (and that I only identified when I was almost done), I had to move my items pretty much one by one over to the new sim. I have to say, if it weren’t for a fellow fairelander and Alia’s impeccable work, I would have lost it. Anyway, now that I’m done, I can finally relax with a blog post. Credits :

Happy Birthday Cajsa

The first time I ever visited Cajsa at her house, she lived underwater. This isn’t to say she lived in some kind of bubble house underwater, she actually lived underwater. It was the fist time it had occurred to me that since the rules of breathing were not a necessity any longer that one could just live in a house underwater – just for fun. But she did. It was the first time I truly considered that a house didn’t need to be a house. I’m still pretty conventional but I never have forgotten the first time I realized that none of the rules applied in this place. Today is her birthday and an easy one to remember – it’s Tax Day in the US – and Cajsa’s birthday. Unlikely to be forgotten! I don’t know what she’s doing today, but I hope it’s relaxing and pleasant. I’ll be wondering if I shouldn’t live under the sea for a while, just to try it out? HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAJSA!!!!!

So, Blueberry has a new gorgeous piece of clothing out. It’s called Liza, and it’s supposed to be a dress. However, my toon being very modest, there’s no way she would ever wear it as one. I therefore had to find her something to wear under it. I tried all my jeans, and leggings, and nothing fit. It made me sad. Then someone suggested Izzie’s, and sure enough, I found exactly what I needed. You know these Ingenue flats I found at Shoetopia, and was telling you about in my previous post? Turns out the “Cotton” colour can be tinted, so now I have, in addition to the fatpack, a billion possibilities to match my outfits! I love, love love my Simone head. It was my first Bento head and so far I haven’t found one that I can shape to look like what I want, as much as this one. But I find the poses a bit mean looking, for the most part. So when I found that new HUD from Happy Dispatch, I was eager to try it. You can animate the eyes and mouth separately, and adjust the amount of animation you want, like there’s that one smile that makes me look like I’m about to eat you, but if I tone it down, it’s lovely!… Read the rest

There’s Magic Afoot – BakesOnMesh Magic

So yesterday I saw Sydd Sinister on FB talking about BakesOnMesh. She’s linked some info from Sasy and as I read long in the commentary something became incredibly clear. MAGIC IS COMING. If you’re old enough you remember when you could wear your jacket on the pants layer and it was a good idea because you needed the jacket layer for your tank top because your underwear layer was for you tattoo of a dying shark saying something in Japanese. It was just a different kind of confusing, I promise you, we understood it. Then Mesh came along and saved us all and we saw the light and got rid of our clumpy cave man hands and feet and then our heads and finally our bodies and ALL THE THINGS and life was smooth and beautiful. Apparently someone said “What if we could find a way to slap all those old system layers onto your mesh and make them look nice?” And someone else said “Yes let’s do that.” I present to you GIDGE – Wearing her mesh with “System Layers” slapped on top.… Read the rest

I Can Read Your Mind

When I unpacked the new minidress from Baiastice my first reaction was legitimately HOT DAMN. There is a line between sexy and slutty and while many folks jump right over it and leave your whatnot and your tits hanging out here and there, I personally do not care for that. I like my bits covered.  I was so excited to see this elegant but sexy minidress that I had to try it on and find some new heels and then…. …go to a psychic apparently. Don’t judge me. I’m feeling to pretty for all of that. Honestly I clicked on the “seductive” tp at Backdrop city but in my mind it had said “Romantic” and then half the sets were stripper poles and my brain was very confused. It’s quite early for this blonde girl. I was worried about how may of you might think the pole is romantic. “SEDUCTIVE” makes more sense. You may be wondering if this dress comes in any other colors besides red. Silly girl! of course it does.… Read the rest

Hot Bath and New Heels

One hot bath and a pair of new heels from Garbaggio and I’m ready to take on the world today. I’m enamored of these Georgia peeptoe shoes – I’m always a sucker for a cute pair that shows off my pedicure. I picked up this fun towel at Kurenai  – . 0nce again if you haven’t been to this event it’s super cool. Think a huge event but with stuff you haven’t seen rehashed 64763451 times and brands you don’t know forwards and backwards. Yeah I said it. The towel has several options depending on how sexy you need to be. Obviously I need to be super sexy all the time. Duh. Back to the shoes. They are so cute and my feet don’t even hurt. I love SL. You say to yourself “But Gidge, I want a lot of options. Does Garbaggio understand my need to wear these shoes in 72 different colors?” To which I say, “Oh sweet summer child…” You can find Garbaggio along with lots of other amazing things at Shoetopia which just kicked off yesterday.… Read the rest

02/04/2018

Hello and happy Monday! I’ve done some shopping today and I figured I might as well show you! As a blogger, I am lucky to have early access to Shoetopia, and I found some gorgeous things, starting with those flats from Ingenue. They are perfection. I had to fatpack them as I couldn’t decide on a colour… They are so good everyone is getting them, it seems Gidge just posted about them too! Honestly, 12 colours for 1100l$, that’s not even 100l$ a pair, it’s a steal! Shoetopia opens today at noon SLT. FaMESHed just opened and is, as usual, completely full, but if you manage to pop there, be sure to try the lovely hair Lamb just released there. It’s so cute, and comes with a styling HUD that allows you to hide or show the built-in hairbase and fiddle with the bangs. It’s also unrigged so if your head is weirdly shaped like mine, you can move it around and make it work! Every week-end, Maxi Gossamer has some styles out for a discounted price, and this week she has, among other things, that very cool sun necklace.… Read the rest

I Awoke In A Magical Land

I don’t know how I got there, but I awoke in a magical land filled with beautiful shoes. Whether it was sneakers or the most painful heels – I found something for every style and taste. Waking up in such a wonderland was the perfect way to start my week. I traveled down it’s hallways to discover that everything was huge or perhaps I was terribly small. Was I in some giant’s lair? Or perhaps just in the grips of an event builder who knew how to make things big enough for people to see even with lag? Amazing how that works… I ran from display to display, giving my lindens as tribute to the powers that compelled me here. It is truly a wonder, so many shoes and so much variety inside one building. I traveled up and down the halls in amazement. I met another princess from a different kingdom and she too had found herself there suddenly. We both celebrated our good fortunes and bought even more shoes to show thanks for being there. When it was all said and done, I was heavy laden with the spoils of pure creative genius that are available at Shoetopia.… Read the rest

In the world of Second Life, people tend to buy clothes at events, wear them once, then change into their next purchase and never look at that first outfit again, even though they were drooling over it when it first came out. For some reason I don’t really like to do that. Of course, I do buy things at events, when they’re brand new and everyone is raving over them too. But I like to shop in stores, and dig out old things in my inventory. When they are good, they don’t get out of style, and it’s the case with that top from Cold Logic. It predates mesh bodies and I’m wearing a size S on my Maitreya Lara. I had to alpha my elbows and part of my back, but honestly, autohide today would do the same. Credits :

The Arcade Closes at Midnight Saturday

“This was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one. There were still plenty left running to keep the air over Detroit filled with that choking industrial aptitude, but you were never far from a hollowed-out factory, massive steel tubes on the roofs pointing up toward the sky with nothing left inside but dust and cobwebs. These giant pillars of concrete and metal now jutted high like extended index fingers from broken and casted hands, pointing toward something they would never touch.”
― Michael A. Ferro, TITLE 13: A Novel
The Arcade closes at midnight Saturday and if you let that happen without picking up the fabulous industrial pieces from NOMAD, you will miss out. The gacha has the delicious name of My Cozy Little Industrial Facility that cracks me up in the best possible way.

While I love the gacha sets and have that completionist compulsion that busts my budget, but when styling an outfit, I always resist using the set.… Read the restThis was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one

26/03/2018

I wear glasses IRL. I don’t mind them, but I wish I could change their colour like I can do in SL, to match my clothes, or my shoes. Cae has a bunch of very pretty pairs out at this month’s round of Uber, it’s just too bad she doesn’t offer a fatpack option, but I did buy 3 out of the 5 or 6 pairs available, I may go back later for the rest… My friend Isla who owns Cheeky Pea is putting together a small fundraising event to help her sister Stephanie pay for some medical bills her husband left when he passed away unexpectedly, at only 37, a few weeks ago. I made a special recolour, the Stephanie eyes, available in the Cheeky Pea mainstore for only 100l$ for 6 colours, proceeds go to Isla. Other designers will have some lovely things out in a few, I’ll try and show you. Credits :

Midori

When I saw the Tentacio kimono outfit for The Arcade was named Midory, I had to try it. When I was in college, one of my friends was a student from Japan named Midori. Midori and Midory are the same, when languages written in other alphabets are written in our alphabet, the transliteration may vary. She came home with me for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I remember we put on quite the feast with steamed cucumbers stuffed with pork, gyoza, tempura, and other tasty foods. She had a few kimonos and insisted on dressing me up in one of hers. It was very fancy and after she wrapped that obi around my waist again and again and again, I thought I would never need a jacket. So here’s to Midori, who, to be honest, I cannot imagine ever wearing anything so short as this dress that bears her name. I love the ease, the casual comfort with the nod to traditional forms in Tentacio’s dress. I thought these lace-up Kioko pumps from BREATHE are just the perfect blend of style and youthful insouciance.… Read the restPink isn't just a color, it's an attitude

I Might Have An Addiction

One of the things I love about The Arcade is it’s ever continuing magic when it comes to providing us with more things for the narrative of our individual SLs. For me, that narrative is chocked full of…..pets. My friend and fellow blogger visited the other day and said if it was a RL house it would smell, it was so full of pets. Alas it’s true. I’ve got this dog and that cat and the other thing, not to mention my Kittycats themselves. Give me your pets, your fishtanks, your sweet little loves to run around my house and make it less empty. I’m not alone when they are here. I love them all. They’re naughty. They keep me on my toes. Kitty almost knocked this pot into my beautiful Merpony aquarium. BAD BAD KITTY. But who really wants to live alone in SL? I wouldn’t trade the chaos for anything. Sometimes I just have to have them for no other reason than I CAN have them.  These bunnies just had to live with me, and I suppose I’ll have to watch the dogs.… Read the rest

Hello peeps! After all the green of St Patrick’s Day, I figured some pink and grey would be nice. Okay, LOTS of pink. Credits :

The In Between

My first thought today was to find some sort of horrible St Patrick’s Day nightmare and blog it as though I thought it were fitting. But hell I’ve done that for almost a decade so I decide nah, let it go finally. I mean it’s not like Shamrock Pasties and butt plugs are in short supply on Marketplace, if one is so inclined.  Yet I just wasn’t feeling it. I guess I’m just in a “Let me stand in front of this giant bear holding an umbrella” sort of mood. What can I say? Skin Fair is open and today I’m sporting newness from Alaska Metro. I love Alaska because her work is always truly lovely, and as a skinner she never forgets things like nails. Have you ever worn her nails? They’re flawless. I’m wearing her Cora skin with her Babygoth eye makeup. I felt like mixing it up so I’m also wearing a neutral lip shade from Stellar. It’s a lovely matte tone. Lexi always does a great job with her lipsticks. Now, I’ve just been shopping and I have to do a lot of unpacking.… Read the rest

She Sells Sea Shells at The Arcade

22769 has a beautiful conch shell in their “Fisherman’s Delight” gacha at The Arcade. They have two great gachas there, one for picnickers and one for fishing fans. I was thrilled to find it because the oldest family heirloom in my family is a large conch shell. My seventh great-grandfather picked it up on the beach almost 370 years ago while on his honeymoon in Barbados in 1649. It has been passed down ever since and my cousin, being the eldest son of the eldest son, has it in his living room on a buffet similar to this one from Fancy Decor (another Arcade find.) It all made me feel a bit sentimental and what better option is there for indulging in romantic thoughts than the ¡Go! outfit at The Arcade. With shoes, dress, and even the hair, it’s all about romance and the lush details of flowers, seed pearls, and lace. Adding to the romance, the gorgeous buffet from Fancy Decor, the rug, shell, and chair from 22769, and the frames and flowers from Aria.… Read the rest“Everybody needs a seashell in her bathroom to remind her the ocean is her home.”

Slow Going

I made myself a nice breakfast in the hopes that it would inspire me to get moving and shaking today. I’ve got shopping and cleaning and lots of SLing to do. Alas, I’m sleepy and just want to sit here.   I’m heading out though, I’ve forced myself to get into the world even though let’s face it – it’s damn cold out here. WHY I ask must it be winter? Then I remember, because I asked Cajsa to make it be winter. Nevermind. I’ll guess I’ll take off my hair and get myself to Skin Fair. Happy Shopping girls. Have a great day. Itsonlyfashionblog.com
