I’m Actually Quite Busy

There might be a little confusion regarding my level of leisure around these parts because of the recent article in The Atlantic where I was mentioned. It was a lot of fun to be a part of the project and I really did enjoy it. But I do think the author didn’t really understand that a blogger WORKS around these parts. In fact, let’s face it – it’s my job here on the grid. I’m a writer and a sharer of fashion and other things to enhance your digital life. Sometimes I tell stories, sometimes I blather on about things I like. That’s who I am and what I do. To start with there’s a lot of shopping involved. No one is invited to cover ALL the events (although that’d be nice yo) so no matter how many how many events you’re an official blogger for you’re still going to go place to place doing a bit of shopping. Usually in stilettos. I go looking for new things, like new AOs and poses because BENTO is it and we all need whats new now don’t we?… Read the rest

I’m a Bad Parent

It’s Sunday morning and the girl and I are up for the day. I’ve discovered smoking thanks to this amazing cigarette from the Gacha Garden and it lets me blow smoke rings or smoke hearts or one really obnoxious puff of smoke. I can’t stop blowing smoke hearts. Luckily the baby isn’t affected by pixel smoke. I felt bad about her always being in a baby bed so I got her a toddler bed. THEY GROW UP SO FAST. I always wonder why more people don’t make stuff for the zooby babies. Maybe it’s too niche, who knows. I’m feeling like Hannah Homemaker though and I’m pretty sure I’m going to make donuts or something fun this morning. Who knows what I’ll do? It’s gonna be tasty whatever it is. i’m starving.   I thought smoking is supposed to DECREASE your appetite. Hmmmm this may not be the best plan for me after all – I can’t remember the last time I was so hungry. I wonder what’s in this cigarette?… Read the rest

Hey Hey Let’s Rewind…

Hey howdy I’ve been shopping all the live long day can you believe it? I hit the Rewind event pretty hard, I’m gonna have to sell a pixel kidney i suspect to get by. But I managed to get this super cute backdrop from Astralia on my second pull at their machine. That was a sign from the Gacha Gods – so I walked away. Good fortune was MINE. Other things to be excited about is that it’s 3 days since Collabor88 opened which means you can GET IN NOW I BET! This stunning top from Blueberry should fall into your fall must have casual wear. I’m also wearing my favorite jeans with it – I need to fall in love with a new pair of jeans but when you love one pair this much it’s difficult. Second life problems I guess. I had my hair done today by TRAM which is also a pick up from Collabor88. I really love this curly girly style, it’s really fitting my casual happy Saturday feelings right now. Now, see, I DO leave the house sometimes regardless of what that article in The Atlantic says.… Read the rest

No Really I’m Fine

Good morning girls. I thought I’d stop for a moment to make sure you know that Poppy has released one of my favorite creatures for the REWIND event – a lovely slip with garters. You need it. I’m getting ready to head out for my day to do all the things, but I wanted you remind you to put REWIND on your shopping list. Now, I’m off. Have a beautiful day girls. itsonlyfashionblog.com

Junbug Annhilator

Junbug can be fun to pick up on FLF because they often have lovely gowns and 50L is a steal for their pretties. I popped over there very early AM while this dress was still out and snatched it up. Now I just need somewhere to take it dancing. I’ve got a slight quibble as the drop sleeve on the shoulder intersects with the arm depending on my arm position, but I suppose for 50L it’s only a very slight quibble.  My jewelry today is from Donna Flora which you can still find open and thriving. Her jewelry continues to stand the test of time in it’s beauty and style, and there are so many pieces that look amazing with our new mesh gowns it’s hard to choose what to wear sometimes. If only the shoes could be transformed – I wish it were possible. I just loved her shoes back in the day. They were spectacular. They still are they just can’t be worn with the new mesh meet we all live in. Sad right? It’s a testament to her skill that this jewelry still looks as beautiful today as it did a few years ago.… Read the rest

You Said Wood

Keithia is the new tower and bed from Trompe Loeil and I thought perhaps there was a tale about a damsel and a tower but I couldn’t find one online. I did find that the name means wood. At that I began to giggle, because well it’s a big tall tower, and wood. I’m a 12 year old boy sometimes, I swear. Since I was thinking WOOD I decided to slip into my lovely new lingerie from BLUEBERRY who as always makes me a happy face girl no matter what body I’m in (wearing Belleza ISIS today).  You can pick these pieces up with some turns of the gacha at The Epiphany which is still hoppping until November 15th – did you know? Now I’m gonna run off and do some things, shopping and maybe some decorating. You stay pretty and go spend some lindens somewhere! Ciao! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Halloween Steps Lightly Onto the Grid

It says a lot about a creator when they’re your Go TO for an item. With an inventory pushing 134k I’ve got a lot of “jeans”. Ok a lot of them are system jeans and I need to let that shit go. BUT, BLUEBERRY is always my “Damn I need jeans” go to. This is probably because she makes for all the bodies and I am always in Belleza when I need Maitreya or Maitreya when I need SLINK and not having to rearrange my entire ensemble for the day is a WIN. I love you Blueberry. You stay cool. I’m wearing a perfect fall sweater and scarf combo from JUST BECAUSE that I picked up at Collabor88. I love the many colors this is available in, it’s going to make it another go to piece for the winter, I’m sure. I was also feeling quite nostalgic and pulled out an old cookie set I had in a Gacha somewhere, maybe ALBERO back in the day, from when I made poses. I loved this set it’s so cute. I also love cookies, so you know, that’s a win.… Read the rest

When the Cold Winds Blow

It’s getting cold in my SL and that’s ok, I like it that way. The feeds are full of rotting bodies and grotesque make ups and well, that just means Halloween is upon us. I like it that way too. I guess what i’m saying is, I love the fall. I love a reason to bundle up, I love the cold.  Storms are gathering out at sea, here on my islet and so my repose outdoors was short lived. But indoors is cozy and warm and I made some cocoa so that’s fairly perfect. This kitty cat beside me is 2213 days old and was given to me by my friend Kesseret. She never logs in these days, but I still am lucky enough to get to talk to the real life her regularly. And when pixel Gidge is logged in, she’s got Tickle Pink to keep her company every day. Now, I think it’s time to find some pajamas and hit the sack, don’t you? Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Fall Touches

Second Spaces brought some lovely fall decor to Collabor88 this month and I’m madly in love because it’s all ONE PIECE rather than 438954579 separate pieces that rez together and then you have to link them all yourself to move them. I swear to you, there is a special hell for people who put their decor releases out like that. I curse you, I do. Every time I realize I’m about to unpack something something that’s multiple items which are unlinked part of me dies inside. That’s why Second Spaces is the bees knees. It really is. You can pick this nifty piece up at Collabor88 this month and it’s a must have for your fall decor. Fall is the best. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Clothes Make a Statement

Costumes tell a story. I’ve  heard that saying, but I wonder if I’m always in costumes or clothes?  Regardless of that, I’ve spent my morning running around in an October fueled joy, because it’s pumpkin time and it’s Halloween time and leaves are turning. It’s time for everything to change. I hit the FLF hard and heavy this morning too, as evidenced by my pumpkins, dress and shoes. WORTH every penny. Some people might tell you it’s too soon to start Halloween dressing and decorating. We call such people bad friends and recommend you limit your exposure to them. No one needs that kind of negativity. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

ForMax You Say?

Cajsa already hit you with the details but I’m here again to remind you that the FORMAX event is still happening and this is an opportunity to bring the love to one of our residents who’s been creating and making our Second Lives more beautiful for years.   You never really know when life is going to kick you in the booboo. Sometimes circumstances rise up out of nowhere and suddenly you’re stuck and you weren’t supposed to be. It’s generally right when we think we have life sorted that fate comes in just to remind us that no, we haven’t gotten anything sorted at all. I popped over to the FORMAX event and dropped some lindens on the items I deemed MUST HAVE. I truly love this jewelry set from Maxi Gossamer. I’m really thankful to FLAIR for making this lovely screen. I’m FOREVER LOOKING FOR CUTE SCREENS for my house it’s true. I’m a screen addict what can I say.  You can hop this taxi to get there.   I’m also decorating for fall and if you remember I’m completely insane for fall.… Read the rest

Under the Wire

You have a few hours to get to Collabor88 before this deliciously neutral theme goes away and the rich harvest colors come in. It will be good as well, but I have a love of neutrals and the romantic delicacies that were the highlight of September. This sweater from The Secret Store beautiful encapsulates the September SweetCheeks theme with its lace and pearl buttons. Baiastice’s Chause trousers are a lovely illustration that neutrals can be bold.

Nylon Outfitters nail appliers are just plain gorgeous. I am always excited to see new nails from Nylon Outfiters Nail Art. Garbaggio’s shoes are some favorites for the month. I love D!va’s short bob – and am still loving Spenser from Lelutka and Glam Affair. ***SHOPPING LIST******

Moon Love

But even when the moon looks like it’s waning…it’s actually never changing shape. Don’t ever forget that. -Ai Yazawa That quote seems perfect for Moon Amore, the store that released this lovely outfit at Collabor88 this month. It seems no matter the event, you can always recognize Moon Amore for the fresh, feminine styles released. There’s a daintiness that is emblematic in every release. Color-customizable shoes from Mutresse seem a great match and are also at Collabor88. Time is running out, so rush to Collabor88 TODAY! Exile released adorable hair as well with this lovely hat which has a color change hud. My skin is from Glam Affair, Spenser for the same-named Lelutka mesh head with which I have fallen in love. ****SHOPPING LIST******

In a Cookie Cutter World Be a Macaron

Macarons are such beautiful desserts it is no surprise that beauty lovers in Second Life celebrate them. The single macarons from Genesis Lab at The Arcade include an eating pose set that is adorable. Thankfully, my avatar chews with her mouth closed. I love how things at The Arcade come together even without a theme. For example, this outfit from Hazy with that lovely macaron pink is perfect for a trip to the bakery for some macarons. What is that? A fascinator, a lemon MACARON fascinator? and it’s from Yummy. What fresh conspiracy is this? On a side note, the headband attached to the fascinator would not work with this hair style, so I selected the individual face in texture edit and made it invisible. And isn’t the texturing on the back of that Hazy outfit perfect? These t-strap peep-toe pumps from Ingenue mix the sophistication of heels with casual lace-ups which makes them just informal enough for the outfit. I love the earcuffs from LaGyo and the hair from INK.… Read the restIn a Cookie Cutter World Be a Macaron

Garbaggio For The Win

I spent about 20 minutes editing photos after shooting in my home studio, only to realize when I was done that I had uploaded the originals to FLICKR. In a moment of frustration I decided to make lemonade and declare this intentional and show off how lovely raw photos can be. WELL THEY CAN BE. I named my post after my exclamation at finding these shoes from Garbaggio while dressing this morning for work. My work, of course, being fashion blogging. I can’t think of a time I didn’t LOVE the offering from Garbaggio – they always bring their A game. My poses are by one of my favorite pose makers – Ma Vie, done by my friend Mavi. She’s got a brilliant eye for form and is truly very talented. Today’s clothes are from Poppy for LOOTBOX which I don’t know what it is so I should find out bcse WOWZAH that’s sexy. Now what to do with the rest of my day, I’m thinking something purple lipsticks works with! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Subtle Colors For the Win

I love subtle colors and how they play off each other. This outfit from Baiastice is a beautiful example, though it also comes in vibrant colors and prints. The Baiastice outfit includes the Chaus trousers and the Elliot cardigan. It also comes with some fashionable sneakers, but I am feeling pumps today.  Garbaggio’s shoes come in a several dozen color options. In fact, there is a riot of colors which makes their name “Riot” Pumps perfect. Monso’s Taingu hairstyle is loose and casual and everything brilliantly carefree. The jewelry is from Kungler’s and is out at We <3 Roleplay. That glimps of lingerie is Luxuria’s Temptress Bodysuit. I am wearing Spencer, the lovely new Lelutka Mesh head and the Glam Affair Spenser makeup. And now, isn’t that Half-Deer flower cone so very perfect with the Baistice Elliot Cardigan. ****SHOPPING LIST******

Sometimes It’s Lonely

Sometimes I’m very solitary and that’s by choice. I guess I need more excitement in my SL but I love my quiet Saturday evenings at home, with nothing but me and my thoughts. I can do whatever and no one cares, which is kind of a relief from the burdens of responsibility isn’t it. It’s kind of the best sort of relaxation. Tonight I’m trying on lingerie and just being my gidgy self in quiet of this most gidgiest of spaces. I picked up this rare bed from the Arcade this round – it’s made by the Loft (always great stuff) and I’m wondering if I will keep it. It’s really for teens and toddlers oh wait I have a baby. Where is my baby? I’m the worst mother. I think she’s visiting Auntie Inventory…. Well now I’m considering a new house and room for the baby and…suddenly my Saturday night got very busy.

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
