Teal Endeavors

i’m feeling a dreamy sort of contentment swathed in teal today. It’s one of my favorite colors and it fell out of favor for so long, I’m glad to see it’s return. Blueberry bring us a perfect casual skirt set for Collabor88 this month, and I’m in love with my new Updo (I have two new ones yay) this one is from D!VA. I love the Moonstone shade of blonde she makes. What’s your favorite? It’s a quickie for me tonight. Have a great Sunday evening girls. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

No Resolutions

2018 is off to a rocky start with a five-day stay at the hospital. I am home again, thankfully, and recovering. Oddly enough, though, I seem to have picked up vertigo at the hospital. I know you can’t do that, but I did anyway. So the world is a spinny, dizzy, silly place. It’s really odd. I can turn to the left just fine, but turning to the right makes me dizzy. I see political implications in this. Turning to the right is bad for you. What’s not bad for you? The refulgent abundance of this month’s fabulous Collabor88 showcase. The theme is Moody Blooms, a clever pun that is overshadowed by the rich, lush, floral blossoming of creativity to enjoy this month. For example, this gorgeous dress from Baiastice has a HUD that allows you to choose solids or the gorgeous floral lace. I love the luxe beauty. There’s this homage to medieval forms with the lines of the bodice. I love the lace peplum, though it’s more flattering than the usual peplum by laying close to the body rather than adding lots of width.… Read the restNo Resolutions

You Like My Loving Machine

It’s another day of exploring at Backdrop City for me. I have found no less than five new creators I need to support with my $$ and I’ll be going shopping soon. If you’re like me, you like to own a lot of backdrops to set up fun scenes for blogging the creations of our world. Joy on the grid today is brought to us courtesy of the January opening of Collabor88. I’m feeling an almost Valentine vibe with my colors today.It’d be a little chilly in the real world but luckily in SL cold is just a decorative feature. Amirite? I’m ridiculously in love with this hair from TRAM. Besides just being a great style, it’s one of those blogger must haves, perfect for casual or elegant looks. We can’t have enough stylish up dos girls. Pick this one up. Now I’m going to hit the mean streets and find an adventure for today. Who knows maybe I’ll even take pics! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Come Around and Talk It Over

It’s a fuzzy sweater time of year and I’m trolling the mean streets looking for what’s new and exciting. Collabor88 opens it’s doors with a new round and I’m wearing some of the goodies right now. This cozy sweater plus this great hair style are both coming out tomorrow. I’m having so much fun exploring today, and when I’m this comfortable, it doesn’t feel like work. My earrings today are super vintage retro chic – from Dark Mouse! I miss her gorgeous earrings they were so great. Still are – as you can see. Now, time to get ready for even more shopping.

The Allure of Backdrop City

I had to go an see it with my own eyes, the place that was so driven by drama of late. I have thoughts, some of which I’ve shared on plurk. They are as follows. This place is truly a bloggers paradise. It’s an insane resource for those of us who do this as vocation in SL. I think it’s a rather lovely thing to provide to people. It’s not unlike some of us who go to sims decorated just for photography. I don’t throw my backdrops away. As a blogger, I keep them ad infinitum because I never know when I might need that dragon turtle station wagon surfboard set again. So I keep them. I mention this because apparently there is a belief that we throw them away. I guess some do. I do not. What this place HAS done for me is introduce me to MORE brands that I need to patronize and give lindens to because THEY make really great stuff. Today I learned about Bruja and I’ve got a note to look them up. I don’t know this brand, but I found this really fun set at the Instagramish area of Backdrop city.… Read the rest

Bring On The New Year

I couldn’t decide what to wear for my New Year’s Eve. I wasn’t sure I was going to go out or not, you see. But it turned out my friend Putrid was out dancing while Oakley spun tunes and I couldn’t resist. Luckily I had put on “what if I go out” clothes before I logged out last time. This Starry Night do from Tableau Vivant was a perfect glittery NYE hairstyle. I had forgotten it. I pulled it out from a long ago release – 2015 I believe. However, it was just lovely for an evening up do and the stars made it so festive. I didn’t dance the entire night away, but I got some footwork in before the new year arrived. Have you made your SL resolutions? I have. I may even tell you about them. I’m not sure yet! Happy New Year girls. Let’s make it a great one. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

A Quick Trip to Greenland

I stopped by Groenland today for a short visit. Most of the mass of Greenland is ice, but not on this sim. I guess it’s in one of the areas where the ice has been melting. It reminded me of “Rotten Ice” an excellent article in Harpers by Gretel Ehrlich. It seemed appropriate during the cold snap affecting much of America which prompted the popular-vote-losing President to show he does not know the difference between climate and weather. Sadly, far too many politicians don’t know the difference or they pretend not to know. Sometimes it’s hard to believe they are that ignorant, then I listen to Louis Gohmert and realize there’s no such thing as not too ignorant. I dressed warmly with the sweater dress from AMD Designs, a knit body suit from Sn@tch, and fabulous boots from Osmia. Wait until you see them in the next picture. These rare boots from Osmia allow you to choose the fur trim color, the socks (plain or print), the soles and the boots themselves.… Read the restCuriosity that inborn property of man, daughter of ignorance and mother of knowledge when wonder wakens our minds, has the habit, wherever it sees some extraordinary phenomenon of nature, a comet for example, a sun-dog, or a midday star, of asking straigh

Get Away

I took some respite at a mountain cabin for a day or two. I tried my hand at art and learned I’m just not very good at it. I also met a very cheeky snowman who seemed QUITE delighted to meet me. I can’t say that I blame him. My much needed polar relaxation is all thanks to this truly lovely cabin from 22769 which you can still pick up at THE ARCADE but let’s face it – the CLOCK IS TICKING. If you haven’t been or there is a thing or two you’d like to try for, the time is NOW. One more day and then we all have to wait ! I hate waiting. One more day until New Year’s Eve. I don’t know what my plans are. Maybe I will just stay here. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Great Minds and All That


It cracks me up that Gidge was attracted to the same dress from Ambrosia at the Kurenai event. Not identical, though since she chose pink and I chose green which is kind of automatic for us if you think about it. I love the frilly romanticism that goes so over the top it becomes exactly right. Kind of like camp, if you do it, you can’t do just a little.

I have no explanation for why there are baby seals on my platform. They are far above any source of water but they appeared, they were cute, I let them stay, and so here they are. They were made my MishMash, can be found at Collabor88, and they are too cute to care if they have no rationale for being here.


These adorable pumps from Hucci need no rationale either. Beauty can be its own reason. You can find these at Collabor88, too. They have a HUD for changing the colors so they can be one color or more.

My updo is from EMO-tions at Hairology. The jewelry is from LaGyo for Collabor88. A little tiara is exactly what my hair needed.… Read the restWhen I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always

Closing Out The Year

Onyx Leshelle was a darling and gave away 7 lovely gifts to Maitreya group members for Christmas. Among those AMAZING finds is this beautiful dress which I thought might make a PERFECT evening gown to ring in the new year. What do you think?  She also gave away several other lovely items including SHOES SHOES SHOES (not pictured) and I have to admit, shoes are ALWAYS a perfect gift. I was DELIGHTED! It was so very generous of her and unexpected. So THANK you Onyx – it was lovely to be given such lovely high quality things. You’re a sweetheart. My perfect jewelry is from Donna Flora  .  The jewelry there still continues to stand the test of time. Perfect for your special occasions. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Boxing Day

Santa came and brought the love as always. Now there is nothing for it but the clean up and it’s time to start thinking about those resolutions isn’t it? It’s time to consider what to change and what to keep? I’m struggling right now because I’m really quite in love with this head from LAQ. But I also love MAY from Lelutka. WHATS A GIRL TO DO? Just like the bodies, ROTATE!! Probably. Of course when I put Lelutka back on chances are HIGH I will live in it. This head was such a good deal though, I think for anyone wanting a different and new look, it’s a great pic up to try out. Now, about those resolutions? Time to start working on them!

Dreams of Babies

Flo and I are wrapping up our Christmas eve with some end of day writing in my journal,  and thinking thoughts. I am thinking about how lucky I am to have all of you, and of all the people who aren’t here any more whom I miss. But eventually I had to get some sleep. So much to do tomorrow! I had the strangest dream. I was sleeping soundly in my bed when suddenly… I was holding a new baby and snuggling it tight. Who’s baby was this? Another foundling? Oh lord I don’t know if I have it in me to have another pixel baby. This is just a dream right? Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Purritos for You and Purritos for Me

One of my favorite little fun things from The Arcade this round are the sweet little Purritos, baby kittens wrapped up for you to love. I couldn’t resist giving this one some much deserved love and attention today as I get ready for the big day tomorrow. These sweet babies are just what the doctor ordered if you like furbabies that love to snuggle. I just love them. Now it’s time for me to get ready for the big day tomorrow so I’ve got to get out of the studio and get to work! I hope your Christmas Eve is wonderful girls. See you tomorrow! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Pastel For The Holidays

Cajsa gifted me with something excellent for Christmas – a new event I had never heard of an a little shopping spree! I was ECSTATIC! KURENAI is a great little event which combines gacha with some regular sales and I had trouble choosing what I wanted to pick up. I ended up settling on this dress which calls itself Chinese Lolita and I got lucky on my pull in the Gacha for the stole – I got the PINK one YAY! It was meant to be. There were lots of new to me brands, as well as some old favorites likes Tukinowaguma (did I spell that right?). I had to pick up this hair. It’s one of my favorite brands that I always forget to wear. I need to change that! I also picked up an ADORABLE tea set with a bunny themed teapot. Could I possibly need more for my Christmas Eve Eve? Nope. I think not. Gidge is Wearing:

Do You Want To Christmas?

I attended one of what was possibly THE MOST SL Christmas party ever last night. I mean, there was a giant spider avatar there dancing along to I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.  Does anything get more SL than that? The hostess had a dress which was a table set for holiday fun. As for me? I was an errant Santas helper in no panties. I realized the panties thing when one of my dances sent me writhing to the floor. Oh well. Merry Christmas to the patrons of the Velvet! Enjoy my pixel vag! My main impetus for going was that my friend Maht was DJing and he’s always got some fun tracks to play. By fun I mean interesting I mean recorded by the Pixies in a closet in Berlin before they were born. You haven’t heard it before. Just trust me. You need to hear it. Ok I’m joking. A bit. My excellent Christmas outfit this year is brought to me from HAZY at THE ARCADE and it’s perfect for any type of Christmas celebration on the grid this year. You can still pick it up – so definitely get over to The Arcade and give it some pulls.… Read the rest

Thanksgiving Wind Down

Maybe the best part of Thanksgiving is just unwinding and chatting with your friends. I rarely have folks over and we’ve decided that needs to change! We need more visiting and more socialization not less. Maybe we will all work on that for 2018 eh? Who knows what we will get up to. Whatever it is – it’s gonna be gorgeous. You already know. With that, I’m out for the night. G’night girls. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

It’s Thanksgiving Again

I’m double checking my RSVPs so that I know what headcount to expect today. I’m really looking forward to a nice traditional Thanksgiving today.  There’s always so much to do but luckily I’m head of things, I got started yesterday. I’ve always heard that dogs are afraid of the vacuum but mine don’t seem to give a fig at all, it’s bizarre. Or maybe they are trying to attack the thing? Hmmm, I suppose that’s possible too.  Either way, I am just doing a tiny bit of tidying before folks arrive. The turkey is resting and now it’s time to get the sweet potato casserole in the oven. Everything smells so good already I’m READY to eat I tell you. Now I wait until company arrives! I’m super excited about this day and I don’t know why. Maybe it’s just the culmination of a hard year that’s suddenly turned great? Who knows. What I know is…it’s only 33 days until CHRISTMAS!!!… Read the rest

My Thanksgiving is Perpetual

It was Thoreau who referred to his Thanksgiving as being perpetual. I think it’s meant to point out we should really always be glad for what is good in our lives.  I try to be. It’s hard to go zen and mumble your thanks all the time plus it’s boring. But once in a while, it’s good to realize just how very good you’ve got it. My friend Sasy sent met his hair as a present and now I have a new hairdresser to love, now don’t I? Yes. I do. The sprinkles are so amazingly cute. I couldn’t resist adding them. You can find this hair at the Candy Fair yes here I am talking about it AGAIN. I can’t stop. I’m sorry. That fair is just too cute. It’s less than 24 hours before the eating of the huge bird begins. I’m baking this year. You’re welcome to come over but please bring a side dish. Thanks! See you soon! Itsonlyfashionblog.com
