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.

I know I should be gone

A few days ago I stumbled upon a new - to me at least, so that is not saying much as I pretty much camp out under a SL rock - event called The trunk show. I was a bit sceptic about it, since it's all focused on wedding stuff (and nobody ever wants to tie the SL knot with me wahwahwah). I did however pop over, because I'm just hella curious. And then I bought half of the stores out.
Who says you have to wait for a wedding to put on pearls and wear a pretty white dress?

The new minidress from ALT by TRUTH is all kinds of shiny. It comes with several color options, but the many metallics were my favorite thing. 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. Some old earrings from Paper Couture I have had for ages is the finishing touch.

Waiting for Godet


They say waiting is half the battle, but what if like Godet it never arrives?
Lorelai Bonetto, owner of Preptopia was kind enough to drop off her latest creation, Old Hollywood on me. I've taken the Old Hollywood dress out for a test drive and well I have to say that I quite pleased with it. Old Hollywood comes complete with several sizing options from XXS to Large. There is  fitted mesh option which means that you will be able keep your unique shape and still look pretty in Preptopia. Old Hollywood has a total of 9 color options and even had a HUD option for additional customization.

Head on over to Preptopia and pick up your very own version of Old Hollywood.

Musical Inspiration-Want to know what album I can't stop listening to? It's Lyndon Heart's Strangeheart Album. If you are not familiar with SL music or Lyndon heart I totally think you should take some time to listen, and perhaps pick up an album or two. Lyndon is all class.

My favorite song- Never the Same Girl Twice
Honestly Stangelove is a great album: Favorite tracks: 1,2,4,5,7 and 11

Arcade Angels

There’s all sorts of angelic options at The Arcade, but I did not take the usual route. I did add wings from The Secret Garden (tsg) but instead of rest of their angelic creation, I went the naughty angel route with this deliciously sexy Show Time dress from Blueberry. This dress is much too short and bootylicious to be standard issue angelwear, but I don’t believe in standard issue clothing.
There is something heavenly, though, about the gold spun Nei boots that come with Blueberry’s dress in the gacha at The Arcade. Tableau Vivant’s Evening updo works well with the crown from Balderdash and its matching necklace. Fabulous nail appliers from AlaskaMetro, earrings from Paper Couture and a coordinating Show Time mask from Blueberry complete the look. I tinted the mask with a hint of grey so it was not such a white-white in contrast to the rest of the jewelry. My skin is a new release from Glam Affair for Lelutka Mesh heads – and now that mesh heads can be fitted and individualized, I checked out this newest shape from Juicy, an old business made new again.… Read the restMay You Find Some Comfort There

It looks like a movie; it sounds like a song


Pixicat has a wonderful ballerina skirt and bodysuit at The Arcade along with several darling ballerina globes to decorate your space. I was inspired to make a short video using the Resplendent Rose Ballet Barre that I purchased a few years ago. However, I have gone to the store and to the marketplace and cannot find it for sale any longer. If folks have recommendations, I would love to hear them.
I will do a separate post about the studio furniture and decor. I wanted to focus on this lovely ballet outfit from Pixicat. When you watch the video you will see how flawlessly it fits.
My shoes are from u.f.o. (Ur Favorite One) and the hair is from EMO-tions and was released at the most recent My Attic. It should be in the store now the event is over.
I am so sad that I cannot find that ballet barre because it came with several dance animations and static poses.
My skin is a combination of Glam Affair’s Kaia and Clara. The eyes are new from PXL Creations and the jewelry is from Paper Couture.… Read the restDance is a way to find yourself and lose yourself

Beautiful Devoré

Baiastice has released a stunning dress with a gorgeous devour skirt. I love how it goes from opaque to sheer and how the hem is cut away to follow the pattern of the stamped print. It comes in gorgeous colors and I was at a loss which one to wear until I decided to wear a hat – and finding the hat made my color choice for me.

I went to  Lost Stars which has some seriously creepy sound effects. I did not realize that at first and then I was walking up this fallen column and heard what must have been a zombie or a ghoul. I was so surprised I jumped, sliding my hand on the trackpad and dumping my lovely new dress and these gorgeous hot pink stilettos in the drink. Luckily they are insta-dry.
This gorgeous hat from Purple Moon was what made me decide on the blue dress. It came with a silver or a gold peacock and I went with the silver. I love silver and blue because it makes me think  of the moonlight. The jewelry is from Paper Couture, a gorgeous diamond parer that is fit for royalty – of fashionistas.… Read the restPeople will stare. Make it worth their while.

The Whole Is Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts

With fashion, one plus one does not always equal two. For example, what I am wearing today combines two pieces from Liziaah into something new. I think the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. After all, there are three outfits, not two. I was drawn to both the dress and the top from Liziaah. I noticed they both had similar embellishment, common in a collection where designers seek to find unifying elements. I though they might work together
I simply wore a dress two sizes smaller than the top. It would have been one size except there was a small amount of bleed through at the collar.
            I went to Forgotten City. It will close next month, so make sure it is not forgotten by you and go visit this charming place before it leaves us forever. I wore these fabulous shoes from Garbaggio that are at Collabor88 this month. I know I have worn them three times this month, but in different colors. The thing is, with classic shoes, they work so well so often.… Read the restOne should either be a work of art or wear a work of art. - Oscar Wilde

Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate.

Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate….J.R.R.R. Tolkien I stopped by Faster Pussycat today and saw that Honey Bender-Auer had opened a new store across the plaza called BENDER. Featuring all original mesh and textures, it still has the rock superstar aesthetic that animates Faster Pussycat married to sleek and minimalist silhouettes. This Kyo dress was a must for me. I love how it echoes 18th century silhouettes that we are used to seeing in rich prints and maximal embellishment and here we see it in a solid silver, without visible seams or lines and not a trace of embellishment. It is a celebration of form and it is exquisite. I only have one quibble and it is minor. Since it is sleeveless it was not rigged to the arms or shoulders and so it is not very flexible when moving, It works well with most straightforward poses but if you raise your arms…well, just don’t do that. Thankfully, most of us do not run around SL with our arms raised.… Read the restStill round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate.

Among Punishments and Ruins

We are living even now among punishments and ruins…Wendell Berry Portland is not burning, but much of the Pacific Northwest is. Today, the smoke is thick and heavy and makes my throat sore. I get frequent updates from friends in Washington, Idaho and eastern Oregon. Wildfire smoke covers the region like a shroud and a new mother frets because even indoors the air irritates her eyes and wonders what it might be doing to her infant. Trying to be upbeat, a young woman snaps a selfie wearing a bandana to protect herself from the smoke with the comment, “The Sundance Kid Goes Grocery-Shopping.”  I tell a friend to go through her old photos and gather pictures for her friend whose home on the Nez Perce reservation was destroyed, knowing from my own experience that among the most enduring losses of a fire are the pictures and memories of childhood. The wettest rainforest in the United States is burning. Widely and silently understood, the reason there are wildfires in a rainforest is perfectly clear to the people, but seldom expressed by the powerful.… Read the restAmong Punishments and Ruins

Hold Fast to Dreams


Langston Hughes, one of America’s greatest poets, wrote that we must “hold fast to dreams” for if they die, life is like a bird who has broken wings and cannot fly. When dreams go, he wrote, “Life is a barren field frozen with snow.” I think this is an important truth that we must all hold onto. Dreams animate us. They keep us from drifting into a stagnant contentment. Chuck Palahniuk wrote “Let me never be content.” Sometimes people stop seeking happiness, settling for contentment. I think contentment is a trap. It is a yield sign on life’s highway. That’s where dreams come in. Unlike goals, they need not be realistic, they can be far-fetched, but they can set a framework for realistic goals that guide us toward self-fulfillment and happiness. It is more important to have dreams than to achieve them. Hope is more powerful than success and hope is what dreams are made of.

In some ways, ISON’s orchid dress is the manifestation of a dream.… Read the rest150816_002

River Eternal described their relationship like this. “The shop is ours, but she’s the brain, I’m mostly the hands” When the brain and hands work together, some amazing things can be produced. Sandel Daviau completed the interview. It’s Only Fashion: What’s the craziest thing you ever did in Second Life? Most exciting? Silliest? Is there a story you can share that captures your Second Life experience? Sandel Daviau: The craziest, most exciting and probably silliest thing altogether that I’ve been doing in SL since my very arrival is to own roleplay sims. So far they have been about a dozen and I never can stop myself from thinking about the next one. It’s like an addiction to bring amazing playgrounds to the grid, much like making books come alive so people can play in them. I always think about stopping: “this will be my last sim!”, but when I see it I’ve already commissioned a new one.… Read the restAsset Rocket_001
