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.”

I‘ll Burn That Bridge When I Come to It

The Secret Store released a luscious skirt and top at Collabor88 in a wide range of colors. Fashions have become increasingly risque, with transparent fabrics and laces over opaque pieces that would have been lingerie a decade ago. It is one of those fashions that require discernment on the part of designers as it can easily veer toward overexposure and bad taste. In the sure and certain hands of Maylee Oh, though, it is on trend without crossing that line into tacky. How does she avoid the pitfalls? The waist is high enough to cover the navel and the cut of the legs are not too “cheeky.” The bra top is not so skimpy that there is any risk of nip slips and other exposure. This outfit reveals without exposing.


I am kind of in love with this backdrop from Gabriel. I might love it even more if it’s floor came in two options so I could just use it as a bridge across the stream on our land.

I also adore these Mary Jane pumps with a bow. They bring together the cuteness of a Mary Jane with the sexiness of pumps.… Read the restI'll burn that bridge when I cross it.

Afternoon on a Hill

Edna St. Vincent Millay was not thinking of textiles when she wrote, “I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one,” but nonetheless, when I put on this dress from NOIR for Collabor88, I immediately thought of her poem, “Afternoon on a Hill” perhaps because of that line, but also perhaps because it describes so well, the joy and contentment a person can find in nature. I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one. I will look at cliffs and clouds
With quiet eyes,
Watch the wind bow down the grass,
And the grass rise. And when lights begin to show
Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,
And then start down!  
I am loving every single thing about this month’s theme, but then I love romantic and feminine clothing. Don’t get me wrong, I also love sleek minimalism and bold, vibrant experimental clothes, but there’s nothing more fun and feminine than florals.
Just so you know, there is probably a line from Edna St.… Read the restI will be the gladdest thing Under the sun! I will touch a hundred flowers And not pick one.

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

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.

Plastic Fantastic

Since the JustBecause pants and the Moon Amore top are both color change, this outfit has about eleventy million options.
 These shoes from Garbaggio also come in a few dozen options, though they are pre-selected. I liked the pink and yellow, but they are more than that, the heel cap is green and the stiletto is red. Wasabi Pills has a cute long hair style. It comes with a fun little headband, but I liked it better without. The necklace is from Tentacio. Isn’t that necklace adorable? I am wearing the new Spencer head from Lelutka with Glam Affair’s Spencer makeup, using the HUD to tone down the color of the lipstick and eyeshadow a bit. There is a vulnerability to Spencer that I really like. ****SHOPPING LIST******

Fashion Cannot Be Eclipsed

Collabor88’s theme for its August Birthday celebration is Plastic Fantastic. In my first life, I would not be caught dead wearing plastic, but this is not first life. Here I don’t have to worry about whether fabrics breathe and my avatar does not sweat, so there are no fetid swamps of trapped and suffocating skin. Instead, we have the bright, shiny flash of plastic. I like the dress from Baiastice that takes advantage of plastics best qualities to give us that flirty hem and gleaming sheen.


My shoes are also from Baiastice and I love the red and clear acrylic heels. These heels are everything and you can customize them with a hud.  I love the entire look. Cute, sexy, and sassy. Some of the sass comes from the adorable new Lelutka head Spenser with the winsome face. The Monso cut with the bangs and blunt cut edge and the LaGyo knotted plastic jewelry all contribute to an irreverent free look. Photography by Cajsa Lilliehook

If Life Gives You Bandanas, Make Bandanda Day

Lelutka’s Bandanda Day contributions to Hair Fair are always a work of art. Bandana Day is always the last day of Hair Fair to remind us, after celebrating our crowning glory for two glorious weeks, that sometimes people lose their hair for a host of reasons. The purpose of Hair Fair, despite how we may feel, is not just about making us look good, it’s about prompting us to do good with our shopping dollars, to raise money for Wigs For Kids. So Bandana Day is a reminder, there’s a more serious underlying purpose than just making us look good. The Boho chic of the Lelutka Bandana day is perfect for the Boho chic of Baiastice new offerings for Epiphany – a complete explosion of Boho clothing and paraphernalia. The only thing missing is the hookah. My skin and makeup and even my mani-pedi are all from AlaskaMetro. Photography by Cajsa Lilliehook

There’s a Boat That’s Leaving Soon for New York

One of my favorite songs ever is “There’s a Boat That’s Leaving Soon for New York” from Porgy and Bess as sung by Phoebe Snow. This promenade on Staten Island made me think of the song. To be honest, lots of things make me think of this song. It’s on my iPod and I play it frequently. Her voice was amazing and she was a heroic woman. There’s a boat that’s leaving soon for New York
Come with me
That’s where we belong, baby
You and me can live that high life in New York
Come with me
There we can’t go wrong, baby
We’ll live in the swellest mansion
Up on upper 5th avenue
And through Harlem we’ll go struttin’, we’ll go struttin’
And there’ll be nothin’ too good for you
You’ll dress me in silks and satins
In the latest Paris styles
And all your blues you’ll be forgettin’
You’ll be forgettin
There’ll be no frettin’
Just nothing but smiles There’s a boat that’s leaving soon for New York
Come with me
That’s where we belong
That’s where we belong
That’s where we belong

I mean that’s where we belong ****SHOPPING LIST******

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 trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it isn’t simple.”

Thalia Heckroth™ has made minimalism and simplicity her design signature. But just as  Doris Janzen Longacre was correct when talking about simple living not being simple, minimalist design is just as deceptively complex. Embellishment is easy, structure is hard. Look at the structure on this gorgeously simple dress. Look at the bodice and the way the sleeves are inset. This is a deceptive form of simplicity that is the hallmark of good design. I decided to go for pink, out of the many color choices this dress comes in. I was tired. Pink wakes me up. Shoetopia is opening on the 25th and I am checking out the shoes that will be featured. Unpacking can be fun…particularly when the package is this adorable. You see that purse? It’s the box my shoes came in. How fun is that? The shoes are also from Thalia Heckroth™ and aren’t they shiny and pretty? I like heels with pointed toes more than any other shoe shape. They are the most elegant and sexiest shoes there are.… Read the restGive a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world

“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.”

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******

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.”

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******

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

V for Victory

I am ready to resist, though if we’re marching, I have to change my shoes. Lizziah released a darling cropped sweater and skinny jeans, each in four colors. I confess cropped sweaters confuse me. Warming shoulders, chilly tummy. It’s gorgeous. Look at the details. The super-long sleeves, the ribbed band not the sweater, the sticking o the pockets. P.S. The V pose is from Gingerfish for Bento hands. I don’t have any yet and used Slink. The other poses are from aDorkable. Glamistry’s Azalea pumps are gorgeous. There is a HUD for all sorts of customization. I added this fun necklace from Mandala. The nails are from Flair.

The road is long, with many a winding turn


I do not know Brandy Maltas (Kalli Birman in Second Life®). However, I know a few things about her. Most urgently, I know she has cancer, a second recurrence of metastatic uterine cancer that has spread to her liver. Secondly, I know she must be a kind person because people care about her and are trying to help her. From the event information, I know she is a single mother of three who is trying to do her best to survive and make it through this battle so she can see her children grown. Lastly, I know that I hope people will support The Road Ahead, an event to support her struggle, before it closes on January 1st.

As an exclusive for the event, Mami Jewell has released a special amethyst color of her Electra dress. As you can see the dress can be worn different ways, all amethyst or black and amethyst, with all the billowing attachments or without them, with sleeves or without. Azul’s clothing is always versatile.
