The Things You Forget

It’s funny what you forget, and what you remember, over ten years time. Asked recently to recollect my days in SL, the arc of my existence in pixel space, and the story flowed.  But what struck me wasn’t the fails, the losses, the friends who turned out to be flakes and went their way. No, it was the constancy of the right people – when you are lucky enough to meet them. Realizing where you came from, hosting silly events together and making sure campers got paid, and where you are now is an interesting reflection on time and space and the characters of  people who have come and gone. But what’s more interesting, perhaps, is that we continue and grow and change.  I’m happy but I’m ready to do more/ learn more/ try more. If there is a word for both content and ready to grow, that’s me. The Russians probably have a word for it, but it doesn’t have any vowels. Cajsa invited me over to The Trace Too to check it out  (I’ll be back there soon, now I’m hot for location shots) and we chatted about all the things, including whether the Apostle Paul was a fraud.… Read the rest

The Age of Myth

While I don’t role play it is fun to dress up. I had a good excuse because I wanted to review Age of Myth, this book I read that I really loved. There were some outfits at The Arcade that were perfect so the timing was perfect. Age of Myth is a fantasy novel, the first of five in a new series by Michael J. Sullivan. I reviewed this book on my blog HERE.

Everything began with the glorious wings from C L A Vv at The Arcade. The white wings just demanded a bold, glorious white dress and there were two bridal sets at The Arcade. This one from Salt & Pepper is so much more “role-play” oriented though. You can see how perfectly role-play the dress is. The gloves and headers are also from C L A Vv at The Arcade and I fancied them up a bit with a bunch of bangles from Zaara. So I am ready for all sorts of mayhem. The hair is from Tableau Vivant, a wild hair blown in the wind and available at The Arcade. The skin is Glam Affair, the Polar skin. The choker you see is also from Zaara.… Read the restThe Age of Myth

Collabor88 Fashions & Book Reviews Too

I spent the afternoon at The Trace Too, using all the seating there for my poses. I hopped on scooter and a bench that were on-site. I went there to make a video blog about a book I had just finished reading. My outfit mostly came from Collabor88, from top to bottom. The tied top and capris are from The Secret Store, the top black dots on a white field and the capris are white dots on a black field, reversing each other for a retro rockabilly sensibility. I added Nylon Outfitters applier-based bodysuit at Collabor88. with black and white stripes. I love how they work together. My sandals are from Fri.day. Also at Collabor88. The hair is from Exile and the skin is from Glam Affair – also all from Collabor88. ****SHOPPING LIST******

Poolside Respite

I always think I’ve found the perfect pool but then I find the next perfect pool and then the next one and well, obviously this means I have a lot of pools. Scarlet Creative released a new MUST HAVE resort style pool and I admit, it was on my list of amazing pieces at this round of Collabor88. My hair is from EXILE and the bikini from Nardcotix – all from this round of Collabor88 as well. It’s a great month for those who love the leisurely SL Summer. Now if you’ll forgive me, I’ve got some lounging to do. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Colors at The Arcade & Collabor88

My mother was a believe in dressing to feel better. If you feel sick, wear a dress and fix your hair. If you feel blah, wear something bright. I had an annoying headache and felt so dreary yesterday, I knew I needed some brightness, so I put on the white-white-white high-waisted long-bottomed pants from Pixicats at Collabor88. I also added a top from HUCCI in lovely jewel tones and neutrals. Kandinsky once said, “Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” I don’t know if that is true, but I know it can give your mood a big pop. I decided to introduce you to Toodles XXXIII. My brother has had a chihuahua for a pet for most of his adult life. Just one, always named Toodles. Toodles, ToodlesII, ToodlesIII. I am not sure what iteration of Toodles exists now, but I went for XXXIII to be sure I did not tread on any Toodles’ memory.
Look at how long those pants are…with that second hem making those legs so very long. Such long pants requires fabulous platforms and Ingenue came through for us with Lykke released at The Arcade.… Read the rest“Color is a power which directly influences the soul.”

A Reason To Lounge

Collabor88 an Second Spaces gave me a whole new reason to chill out and do nothing in Second Life and once again, I’m perfectly ok with that. New lounge chairs for the pool weren’t a need but hey WHAT IS A NEED ANYWAY? I don’t even know. I’m in the mood for a nothing day so I invited you to indulge as well with some adorable sandals from Fri.Day and a perfect summer chill out hair do from EXILE you can also pick up at Collabor88. As for cold drinks on a hot day, Schadenfreude delivers an unusual landscape in a bottle. Some people drink the worm in tequila. I drink the shark. It’s gonna be a great Sunday.

Fabsolutely Fun Fashion

Anemysk Kara just showed this blouse she is releasing at Vintage Fair and I just fell in love with its fabstract design. I love the combination of old-fashioned and hyper-modern. The front and the sleeves are so very traditional, then it’s cropped and has an open back. From front to back is a two hundred time travel jump and a brilliant play on form. It’s sold in three packs: plain (vibrant, saturated colors), patterns (prints and florals), and silk (pastels). I combined it with a fun, cheeky belted skirt from Baiastice which you can find at Collabor88. Frankly, I was so indecisive, I could see the top with pencil skirts, cigarette pants, a mini-skirt, high-waisted bell bottoms, or just about anything. The slim silhouette of a pencil skirt of cigarette pant would be sophisticated, but I thought this cheeky option would be fabsolutely fashion fun. I shot my pictures at One Tree Hill, a Linden Endowment of the Arts sim. It’s probably based on the show I have never watched, but I loved the nostalgia of the sim.… Read the rest"Every day we ignore how completely broken this world is and we tell ourselves it’s all going to be okay, you’re gonna be okay. But it’s not okay. And once you know that, there’s no going back."

The Arcade brings sunshine and flowers

I was looking for a quote for my pictures and came across “Keep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.” It was attributed to Walt Whitman which struck me as bizarre. It does not sound the least bit like Whitman. Whitman wrote things like “Give me the splendid silent sun, with all his beams full-dazzling!” The internet is good for many things, but it’s been a disaster to those who want proper attribution for quotes. Thankfully there are those who are combatting error like The Quote Investigator. The Arcade has arrived and with June comes sunshine and flowers, not just outdoors, but even on the wall. I shot these pictures in the small attic bedroom at the top of Scarlet Creative’s romantic Daisy Weathered House at The Arcade. With ivy and moss on the walls and roofs, delicate floral wallpaper and so many gables it would make Nathaniel Hawthorne jealous, this house is everything.
I am wearing a one-shouldered sundress from !Go¡ that has lovely stylized flowers embroidered on the ruffle with tassels.… Read the restKeep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.

MetaLES and Contrasts

I put on this gorgeous jumpsuit from Baiastice that was released at Collabor88 the other day. I had thought I might go check out the beach, but then on a whim, I headed over to MetaLES to see the new exhibition from Sina Souza. It is amazing! However, I could not help but notice that in mood the exhibit and my outfit were on opposite sides of a vast chasm. This jumpsuit is bright, colorful and fun-provoking. The exhibition is striking, creative, sombre, and thought-provoking.
It also encourages you to be part of it. Here I took seven pictures, one on each pose ball and then just erased a portion of each layer to expose the layers underneath. Nonetheless, the contrast between what I was wearing and what I was seeing was striking and made me think about how complex and flexible we are as people. It’s a good thing, I think, that we can enjoy ourselves, be happy, and yet still be aware of and concerned about more serious and troubling issues that affect the world. Wearing frivolous and whimsical shoes like these from Garbaggio does not make us less capable of concern about wars and violence in the world, poverty and hunger at home, or the hatred that drives so many people to unfathomable acts.… Read the restGallery exhibitions are like flowers, they bloom, and then they die, they exist only as memories.

In the Out of Doors

Some might wonder in the magical land of Second Life why I choose to “be normal”. I suppose it’s a valid question. Perhaps it’s because this is, as Prok so rightly called it (although regarding someone else) – a room of one’s own. In life my typist isn’t afforded the luxury of just simply having everything just so, as she’d like and thus in this space, she gives me whatever she fancies, even if just for a while. Thus, unicorns. Tomorrow – who knows? My fancy wanders, hither and dither and I don’t care if it’s not exotic enough for some. My world, my imagination. Today my imagination wanted a fountain. I’m also going shopping for some nail polish. It’s going to be a wild day, I tell you that. If my fancy reaches for no more than a gentle topiary that pleases my eye, I’ll look on it an call it fine. That’s contentment. Also my hair is sticking through my arm. I’m going to call that fine too.… Read the rest

When the heroes go off the stage, the clowns come on.

I often thought Obama suffered all the slings and arrows of outrageous racism with heroic calm and self-control We didn’t hear him whining about it, even when lying, bigoted blowhards said he was born in Kenya or he was a secret Muslim, which is utterly beside the point as our Constitution prohibits any religious requirements for elected office, even if our citizenry disrespects our Constitution daily. Now, the clown has come on and he whines daily that no one has ever been treated so poorly as he has, not even Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, or Kennedy.
When I think of that angry clown with no self control, who has never learned even the basic elements of common decency, who has been indulged his entire life by bootlicking cowards, I shudder to think that man has our launch codes. This is one of those, “If I can’t have it, no one else can” sort of people who will break things out of spite, even breaking the entire world. He cannot be trusted with our national security information, sharing it with our enemies to brag about how he gets the “best intel” and with a fascist dictator to measure who has the bigger dick.… Read the restWhen the heroes go off the stage, the clowns come on.

You’ve Lost Your Damn Mind

The age old conversation about absurd requirements for bloggers never seems to end. I was having a conversation with my girl Sasy and we were once again clucking about the weird measures and expectations people seem to be obsessed with. The other side of the conversation also seems to be that everyone and their brother thinks they can blog because it’s easy and free stuff, at least that’s the tagline. Of course if you ever blogged for any amount of time, you’d know that isn’t the case. It’s work, it’s a commitment and it actually take some effort. These ongoing shenanigans and tiresome conversations make me happy to be a bit of a hermit sometimes, only sideswiped by the occasional crazy notecard. What’s good however, is that I know I can keep on supporting people who work respectfully together and feel very positive about it. I appreciate that, and the long friendships that have formed over the years. Veteran bloggers, we’re salty.… Read the rest

Pregaming Summer

I heard a ridiculous ad on the radio where they were proclaiming that they were going to PREGAME MY SUMMER. That’s called SPRING folks, it already HAS a name. Regardless of that, my pool is full and I’m ready for it all. My new swimsuit from Blueberry is really perfect, I adore the styling and color choices.  You can pick this up along with my adorable summer bracelets from NOIR at Collabor88 this month. My windblown summer hair is a new release from EXILE also at Collabor88. My big plans for the day are to cook out on my grill and lounge in the sun. Who knows, maybe I’ll get a tan. Hard to say – this pixel sun is weird. Hope you’re having an amazing weekend girls. See you soon. <3 Gidge Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Moral Hazard

You simply must have the Gingerfish “Birdy” pose set to tell this Administration exactly what you think of them. Moral hazard is increasingly commonplace. Moral hazard happens when people make decisions that involve risk while they are protected from the risk. Gambling with other people’s money is a moral hazard. So is gambling with other people’s lives. Susan Sarandon’s glib disregard for the lives of immigrants, the poor, people who might lose health insurance and people of color when she encouraged risking a Trump presidency to “heighten the contradictions” is an example of moral hazard. She’s a white woman who won’t be deported or be killed by the police because she forgot to use her turn signal. She’s wealthy and does not risk homelessness or loss of health insurance. It was easy for her to contemplate disaster because other people lose, not her. Fashion and politics go together…and always have.… Read the restMoral Hazard: Taking risks when one is protected from the consequences.

Just Because

Just because you think you’re so pretty,
And just because you think you’re so hot,
Well, just because you think you’ve got something
That no other girl has got, I love Just Because clothing, not only because the textures are well-done and the mesh is perfectly rigged, because it reminds me of one of my favorite albums as a kid. It belonged to my parents and I played it over and over and over. One of the songs was Just Because. Here you can see the entire outfit and you can pick up everything at Collabor88 except the nail polish. These VALE KOER Sugardoll Heels are all about the shine, shine, shine. A HUD allows you to wear it in a rainbow of colors. You could even go Sean Spicer and have one black and one brown. The bracelet is by Noir and you can choose the bands, the metals, and stones. The polish is from Art Nails by Nylon Pinkney at Tableau. I saw them on Plurk™ the other day and had to have them. I took this necklace from Cynful’s ballgown…it is perfection.… Read the rest“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.”

Pretty Belleza

When Belleza releases a new skin it’s always been a reason for me to take note. I’ve been a fan a long time of the elegant and understated looks offered by this brand. Elegant without being overpowering, Erin is another one in the WIN column from Belleza in my opinion. If you haven’t checked out ERIN for Lelutka head, it’s time to do so. She’s just lovely.

Another favorite thing, the glorious twist and roll pullback hair style by TRUTH called Avery/Elena It was all so luscious, I pulled out the champagne. Please note the lovely shoes from Thalia Heckroth™ that allow you to choose the color of the sides and heels and the toecaps. Glam Affair released a bold gorgeous necklace. And here you see that wonderful hair from the front. That delicate Jinga skin from Glam Affair is just exactly what I wanted.

In Riding a Horse, We Borrow Freedom

I thought I blogged this a week ago. Oops! First, I have to deal with the quote I used for the title. The internet is a disaster for quote lovers and this is an example of why. Which Helen Thompson? My guess this quote may have come from the wife of the race horse trainer, David Thompson. I am pretty darn sure it did not come from this Helen Thompson and by the way, I am even more sure that fifth quote is also one that belongs to the woman whose life was in racing, not the psychologist studying gender differences who was born in 1874.
I love these sexy booties from Glamistry, though of course, these are functional for walking around pixel barnyards only. I paired this fun summertime Rodeo shirt from Gizza with a fun, embroidered pair of jeans from Liziaah. I am loving this Cheri hair from Truth, with one ear free to show off my CAE earrings and necklace. I have had them for a few years now and still love them. There’s a fragility and delicacy to this Kinga skin for Lelutka from Glam Affair.… Read the restIn Riding a Horse, We Borrow Freedom
