“In this world of numbness and information overload, the ability to feel is a rare gift indeed.”

There is so much happening in Second Life right now that it’s sometimes overwhelming. Consider this single post which features a casual outfit at a local coffee shop. But underneath, out of site, there a lot happening. Here are the bullet points.
So at The Arcade, PLAAKA and RH Design House both released coffee houses. I loved the reclaimed factory with the crumbling walls a lot but loved the table and chairs from RH Design House. There’s no rule I can’t mix and match so I did. The coffee house is on the plaza where the bench and music clock from RH Design House add a wonderful atmosphere. Shoetopia is opening in just a few days, on the 25th. I got a sneak peak and so very much love the build. It is built in an H, so if you go up one side of each part of the H and down the other, you won’t miss a single fabulous store.… Read the rest“In this world of numbness and information overload, the ability to feel, my boy, is a rare gift indeed.”

The Wastelands of My SL

I’m out on guard duty today at The Wastelands where some very poorly dressed girl is stalking me, just out of shot. I’m cropping her out because she’s on my nerves, and she doesn’t look good. I’m considering stabbing her with my fancy sword. I’m wearing the SHIELD MAIDEN set from Azuchi which is coming to you from the Lootbox Gacha event. A shield maiden is traditionally a woman who has chosen to be a warrior in Old Norse tradition. A shield maiden will fight, defend and protect or attack as necessary. She’s rather a good role model in some ways. There is some debate about the authenticity of their existence, however there are varied historical accounts of these women who took no shit in a world that was truly a man’s. They weren’t afraid to cut a bitch. I kind of like it. The other thing this photo shoot reminded me of a game my old friends would play, name something and watch me produce it from my inventory. “Cossack hat” was the weirdest one.… Read the rest

What’s The Difference ?

Lelutka now has three different heads out for your wearing pleasure and each one just enough different that it expresses your shape differently. I wear a shape made by my friend Gogo who owns Juicy and so this is me as expressed in each of the different Lelutka heads. I think Chloe is still my favorite but who knows what the future holds? I think this illustrates how amazing Bento is for us though, no more “we’re all the same” argument for sure. I’m also wearing a gorgeous, subtle skin from Hart Larsson of PXL Creations which you can pick up at Skin Fair – AVA. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Pink Makes Everything Pretty

Altair’s dress for Collabor88 is as flirty as it can be. It comes in a range of colors and with a HUD to change the colors of the bow and the ribbon at the babydoll waist and the hem. I chose pink because pink makes things pretty.  This dress is all about the legs.  Which makes it great for showing off gorgeous shoes.  Exile’s hair is great for showing off everything, including the lovely jewelry from Minimal and the fabulous Amaya skin from Glam Affair. **SHOPPING LIST******

Fly Me To LEA

I woke up this morning and decided I desperately needed to see new things in my SL so I ran off to LEA to expand my mind and appreciation of beauty.  The place I ended up was LEA 16 and you ride a little space ship (or a fancy space ship as you like) through multiple builds which are a play of light, objects and motion. It was truly a perfect was kick start my day. I am showing off lots of new goodies this morning also so let’s walk through those. My clothes are from that awesome new shop POPPY and I know I’ve mentioned it before. They are OPEN now as of today.  You can get to POPPY riding this wild slurl.  They are lovely pieces that are out thus far and you’re going to want to check it out. If you were saying to yourself “I’d like a pair of heels that I could fall through space and time with, that are sensible yet cute” I’ve got a pair for you. You’ll be able to pick them up from INGENUE when SHOETOPIA opens on the 25th and oh my goodness yes, you’ll need them.… Read the rest

Slow Starter

I’m struggling to get moving today. I wandered over to Cajsa’s to look for coffee and to hopefully find some breakfast because I need to go shopping for pixel food. But now I’m lounging about on her comfy sofa and thinking about a nap instead. I’ll get up and do something productive soon, I promise. Maybe. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Lazy Days with Collabor88 and The Arcade

It’s a good think I got this gorgeous rare bed from the DRD gacha at The Arcade because it’s perfect for lazing about and so are some of the new releases from Collabor88
OMG, look at how worn this little dress from Hucci is! I am embarrassed to confess that I have one just like this except it’s pale blue. My best friend once told me, “Most people throw their sleepwear away when it has more than three holes in it.” She just does not know how incredibly soft a twenty year old sleep dress can be. And you know what, I wear a sweater with my sleep dress, too. My sweater is way too big and totally soft, too. Mine is teal. I thought about wearing those colors but thought it was just too similar, especially with the bed head. And flip flops, too! I like flip flops better than slippers which are often too warm. I wear them in the house all the time. I am not one for wearing leg warmers though, but they are gorgeous. I love this hair from Moon. It’s perfect for the outfit I am wearing.… Read the rest“Sometimes, when we cannot attain the freedom we are fighting for, we free ourselves by carving a new path to freedom.”

Azuchi! Bless You!

I picked up the LUXEBOX this month and had to log in before my typist ran off to the RL to check out what was in it. So far my best love is this flawless top from Azuchi which fits perfectly over the pants they released for UBER. It comes in five colors in the box and is a great staple piece for your spring wardrobe. I haven’t peeked at the rest of the offerings yet because it was telling me I was clicking too fast to get my goodies and ain’t nobody got time to wait like all that. (Okay I know scripts yadda yadda I understand, I just don’t have patience this early). I’m looking forward to opening the rest in a bit. Happy Wednesday girls! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Overwhelmed with the New

Gizza released a gorgeous formal gown at The Liaison Collaborative. It comes in rich jewel tones, deeply saturated colors such as this rich ruby red. It has a full, flowering skirt that falls deeply in the back. These skirts are sometimes controversial. Sometimes they are a failure, but when well done, they are beautiful, flashing your legs while still providing the length of formal wear. I kind of think we should name them by how well they work. Hi-lo or waterfall skirts if they work and mullet skirts if they do not. By the way, Slink has updated their hands so they are rigged to the Bento skeleton. Note the very, not just released, but updated. What does that mean for you? It means that to have new Bento hands, you can simply update your old ones without an additional investment. How generous is that? How does it work? You go to the mainstore and click the redelivery terminal and the update will be sent to you. If you bought the multipack, you will get the whole shebang, the dynamic hands, the idle HUD, and a fifteen pose HUD of static poses.… Read the rest“There has always been an elegance to the application of excellence.”

Enter The Succulents

I’m missing some sort of female knowledge base, wherein information about plants is kept. I always feel like I’m supposed to know wtf some plant is, and really my knowledge base is limited to roses, daisies, dandelions and possibly tulips if they aren’t strangely flowered. So when I got to rezz these succulents from MISH MISH my brain said SO THAT’S WHAT THOSE ARE! I’ve heard this term forever, I had no idea. Also, I’ve seen this plant a million times and had no idea what it was. I’m sporting a new skin from AlaskaMetro for Skin Fair and I couldn’t resist the blue lipstick. I’m a fan of nontraditional lip colors and this blue is so well done it doesn’t disappoint. It’s a very pretty, polished look for a face. I’m loving this skin. My hair is from Moon and I think it may be the first time I’ve worn this brand, I do like their blondes. Well done. You can pick it up, along with my clothes and the home decor pieces at Collabor88 this month.… Read the rest

Tall Poppies

Poppy is a new brand in SL that comes from the collaborative mind of Roslin Petion and  Rui Rodrigues. Anything Roslin attaches herself to has my attention since before God was a boy, and this new Poppy brand doesn’t disappoint. With classically inspired gathers and gorgeous detailing, Poppy’s dress and shoes available at Whore Couture are a great entree from this new brand. I’m really looking forward to what they release next. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

More Eyeware

I actually went to the Whore Couture fair despite being too much of a prude to like the event name, because I wanted these eyes. I was interested in them and I have to admit, they’re pretty amazing. The pupil dilates as though you’re focusing, adding another dimension life to your AV. The shades of blue and purple are subtle. I took a closeup of my favorite. I really do like these. If you can handle the lag, go put this on your shopping list. File them under MUST have. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Dat Ass Tho

The corset and stocking/shoe gacha from Azuri at the Arcade is a perfect way to start your day if you’re feeling like admiring your own ass, which I am. I really do like simple, but nicely made corsets in SL and they’re hard to come by. A corset is a hardworking piece of foundation – it’s not romp about lingerie. It’s made with BONING (snark) which makes it impossible to breathe, and is cinched up tight to create that hourglass look. It restrains your fat (if you have it), it crushes your organs, it demands conformity along the lines of it’s own design. It’s the dom of undergarments. It chose to pair it with some ridiculously cute hair from IMEKA – also at The Arcade this month. I really like the glitter in the hair and painted my nails to match. WHAT PRICE FASHION? Any price. And if you’re wondering, yes – this is my circus and these are my monkeys. Happy Sunday girls, you’re beautiful. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

The Queen Of Coffee

I have a bit of a mania in both lives when it comes to coffee so imagine my delight at the pretty coffee shop builds that are out at the Arcade this month. I want to wear a crown and declare myself queen of all the caffeinated dark beverages I find. So, I did just that today. Coffee coffee coffee coffee. I do love thee. itsonlyfashionblog.com

I am alive, and drunk on sunlight.

I am loving the outfit released by Zaara for Collabor88 this month. The February C88 showcased folk designs and how appropriate that Zaara release something representative of her country’s traditional, and still current, fashions.  I fell in love with the orangery from Milk Motion for the Arcade, or should I say L’orangerie? I also got a new pet at The Arcade from Jian. I stopped by to get a hamburger from the burger truck from Contraption for The Arcade, but it wasn’t open yet. My makeup is bold and colorful and part of the new makeup sets from Glam Affair, a massive release in coordination with the new Chloe Bento head. The gorgeous hair is from Exile for Collabor88. The earrings are from Kungler. The art is from Milk Motion’s set at the Arcade. ****SHOPPING LIST******

If you’re going to do something tonight that you’ll be sorry for tomorrow morning, sleep late.

Henny Youngman once said, “If you’re going to do something tonight that you’ll be sorry for tomorrow morning, sleep late.” It makes me sort of want to see one of his routines. I kind of think this little romper might lead to doing things tonight…so I will sleep late. You can find your own in Birdy’s gacha at The Arcade. Be sure to sleep late.


Coming or going, it’s delightful.

The shoes are from Ingenue and available at The Arcade which opened today.

Can you believe I got the RED hair on the very first pull in Clawtooth’s gacha at The Arcade? I was thrilled. I also was pretty lucky with the Birdy gacha, not getting a pile of duplicates.

The rings are from Yummy and also at The Arcade. I love the intricate details. My skin is Glam Affair’s Chloe made for the new Chloe Bento head from Lelutka. Glam Affair released several eye and lip makeup appliers that are worth a deep dive. They are gorgeous. ****SHOPPING LIST******

Our imagination is the only true freedom we have.

Our imagination is the only true freedom we have. Before you decide that is depressing and melodramatic, consider this. What really impinges on our freedom more than anything? Is it the government or is it the mores and expectations of friends, family, and community? What stops us from pursuing our dreams, the police or our fears?  There are many things that hold us back, health, financial limitations, even time, but for those of us who live in a relatively free society, we are the ones who limit our freedom. As a white woman in the United States, I am relatively free of governmental repression. Of course, there are many cultural limits on women’s freedom and if some get their way, there will be governmental restrictions as well. But given the continuum of freedom in the world, I am comfortably situated on the relatively free section. I have been arrested a few times for my political activities and always released with an apology. For people who are not white, police encounters are more dangerous.… Read the restOur imagination is the only true freedom we have

Tres Fun at The Arcade

I’m wrecked and full of joy over all the gorgeous things at the ARCADE this round. So much girly goodness swirling around I don’t know which thing to gush over first. I might start with Tres Blah, which are the pajamas I’m wearing, but omg these KITTIES from Half Deer and absolutely killing me. They make me feel a BIT giddy, I do confess. The gorgeous RARE pajamas from Tres Blah have color change hud for top and bottom and several very pretty patterns of texture to choose from. I also have some socks, but hey I didn’t shave my legs this morning to cover them up with socks. As my day winds down, I’m trying to sort out what it is that is my favorite thing and I have to confess I’m really hard pressed to pick something. The round is great with lots of fun, diverse items. I think everyone is going to truly enjoy this round. As for me, I think I need to clear off my bed and hit the sack. I’m exhausted. Check out the Arcade Shopping guide to make your shopping list today! Read the rest

All’s Well In Disturbia

I went on a little adventure today, looking for something new to me. I stumbled into a carnival that reminds me a BIT of the abandoned carnival in The Secret World. I used to play that game with friends who are no longer friends, which is a sad state of affairs but when you deal with people who behave like “digital people” rather than real people, it definitely comes with the territory. I often find myself wandering through an SL strewn with the bodies of those I used to know, so this picture is somewhat a metaphor for those moments maybe. Places like this always remind me of people, but only for a moment. I commit them to memory and absorb these new adventures as my own. Make new memories, ones without baggage, is what they say. So I am. This doll is cracking me up, even as scary as it is. It’s kind of hilarious. I had to go back and shoot another picture because I forgot to show you the beautiful back of this hair, as well as this SIGN which made me LOL. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Old Enemies New Friends

I have, multiple times, realized I was so SLold that I could no longer quite fully recall why I disliked someone. Early days of plurk wars, SCD wars, fashion drama left so much in their wake in terms of scorched earth and friendships destroyed. Lines were drawn so long ago between camps that I can no longer recall why they were drawn, nor which camp I actually belong to. I’m failing at partisanship. It would be meaningful if I could recall why I didn’t like him, but I can’t and lately I find him rather friendly and nice and I’m finally SLold enough that I don’t feel a strong need to AGREE with or APPROVE of everyone I meet. Thus, now I’m friends with Sands. He and I are both done with all those things from the past, apparently, because we had a lovely chat and he gave me some pants. He also gave me a jacket. He’s a gentleman like that. (Okay he’s NOT but let me be artistically creative alright?) It’s also kinda cool when you look up and someone you’ve known for years is suddenly quite talented and making things.… Read the rest
