I’m Walkin’….Except I’m Not

There are some bloggers who do an amazing job of reflecting a variety of skin tones when sharing new releases from creators. I’m not one of them. I think my instinctual nod would go to Sydd Sinister. There are probably others. I’m always impressed with the amount of effort it takes to make a gorgeous contact sheet style post showing all the options with a skin or hair release. I decided to shake myself up and choose a totally different skin tone for myself, simply because in Second Life we can be whomever we want. I’m wearing a tone called Cocoa from Alaska Metro that you can pick up at Mesh Body Addicts event. Belleza recently updated their bods, so be sure to check those out if you haven’t already. As for me, well I haven’t been able to get Gidge to be able to WALK for the past two days so I’m pretty sure she’s just going to have to ride around on this Flamingo forever. Don’t mind me. I’ll be dragging this through events.… Read the rest

Baby I’m Perfect…For You

I have a host of things in my inventory from a time in my SL that’s a big blank to me. So as I stand here looking fashiony, I’m going to mention some things and it’s neither a cry for attention nor an excuse. It’s just you see, back in the fall I missed a lot of things. In the course of trying to keep a handle on my inventory I keep finding things that I can’t recall ever getting. I’m beginning to worry that lovely people who I blog for might think I don’t love them, or didn’t like their things. This is probably likely as I tend to blog daily but my madness is without reason usually when choosing what I blog. I’m telling my story of those days, and so if something got passed over, alas it often stays passed over. I was trying to think, some time ago, how I had possibly missed an event. How is it I didn’t attend? It was a truly loved event, filled with creators I admire and not one I’m likely to miss. Upon further review I realized- it was the fall.… Read the rest

No Way To Control It – It’s Totally Holographic…Whenever You’re Around

Unless you’ve been under a rock you know that this round at COLLABOR88 is HOLOGRAPHIC for the moodboard theme. The releases are fun and festive and I have to admit, there’s just so much fun to be had it’s not easy to pick WHAT to love. My typist is flying away for a few days so I decided to spend some studio time, she’ll be so proud of me working and everything right? While she is gone I am planning many adventures here on my little island. Who knows, maybe I’ll move house. Maybe I’ll read a lot. I don’t know. But I’m planning so have fun without her. Who’s with me for some fun while the rulemaker is gone? It’s going to be some fun days, I’ve decided and therefore IT WILL BE! Gidge is Wearing:

Can We Talk About Free AOs ? Part One

For reasons I cannot properly explain I was compelled to try out some various AOs from Marketplace the other day. I decided that given the fact that decent AOs can be expensive AF that maybe, maybe I’d find a gem or two on MP. You never know. For today’s experiment I’m not using vids – which I should have but RL is making it impossible ATM so I think I will experiment with shooting short vids of the AOs next time around and if so I’ll include this one. I’m starting out with THIS ONE – MIA PRIMA. Let’s start with things that are good: This shit is free. It would have to be pretty fucking wonky to be bad at that point. But in addition to being free, it’s got some REALLY nice features. Read the rest

A Solitary Creature

I’ve been a solitary creature for five years. It took adjustment, being alone all the time, finding reasons to stay here on my own. But now I’ve decided to stop being such a solitary creature and I find myself wondering am I even made for this new, more social and engaging side of me. Memories of how flaky people are, how things can go come flooding back. Years of investment and trust can be dissolved like sugar in the rain. SL people, frankly, can just suck. Am I so certain I want to leave my refuge and engage them? I’m so cold inside but maybe, just one more try. Gidge is Wearing:

I Don’t Even Have A Title

It’s Friday in both lives but I’m here and I’ve got balloons and a festive headband and no party. Isn’t it date night or something? I should have some occupation, something to DO this evening. But I don’t. Well, I’ve got Snake Plisskin here, and we’re going to have a great Friday. That’s my plan and I’m sticking to it. If you like my comfy chair you can pick it up at LTD from Brocante.

For Arts Sake

It’s been a hard working fashiony night for this girl. It’s not easy standing around looking pensive, or sultry, or pithy, or whatever it is I’m trying to appear. This is serious business.  I’ve wandered over to LEA today to see some art and be inspired and I confess I’m a little confused about what’s happening here on this one. It probably says somewhere what’s happening but I’ve content myself with not knowing, but being immersed in the light show. Oh let’s face it, if I had my way – I’d BE the light show. This outfit and hair is available at COLLABOR88 this month. These gorgeous stilettos are from N-Core for Slink Mid feet. I’m starting to think of that as “the forgotten heel”.

I Heard The News Today

What do you do on a day that a great man dies? When you wake up and the world is less one artist, one incredible voice and talent? You get up and do the things you were supposed to do that day, because despite the gaping hole in the universe that is suddenly left you aren’t the one who left and you have things to do.

Too Long Ago Too Long Apart

It was way past midnight
And she still couldn’t fall asleep
The night the dream was leaving
she tried so hard to keep And with the new day’s dawning
She felt it drift away
Not only for a cruise
Not only for a day As the day came up, she made a stop
She stopped waiting another day
For the captain of her heart

We Meet Again Sewing Machine…

Yesterday I played. I logged in and Sasy, Whimsy and Mavi were making the rounds of the big shopping events and so instead of settling in for some serious work I went FA LA LA LA LA shopping. I couldn’t help it. SHOPPING WITH THE GIRLS IS MORE FUN.  After we had emptied all the events of all the items worth having (which was all of them from what I could tell) I had to run off and they went on to further adventures.  Which leads me to today, and now work awaits. Damn. I’ve set up a new workspace on the island, using Scarlet Creative SKYBOX from COLLABOR88 – It’s roomy and has nice walls for putting up my studio.  Luckily, both Garbaggio and Fashionably Dead knew exactly what sort of things a busy fashion blogger needs in their workspace this round of ARCADE! I might see if someone wants to go have lunch in a bit though, a girl can’t work ALL day right? Hmmm, is 7 am too early to start planning lunch? A girl has to keep her strength of. One has to look after one’s health!… Read the rest

Swish, Unff, Simone

Lelutka is releasing a new head on 12/22 and this one is full of unff and sexy. Simone is her name, and being gorgeous is her game.  I’ve paired her with beautiful new appliers from Glam Affair (that purple, I love you) and some Swish hair also from Lelutka. I had forgotten how much I used to love it when hair was wavy back in the day.  These festive glasses are at THE ARCADE from Yummy – and it’s STILL OPEN so if you’re hunting something, you know this is the time! Now, I’m going to stop snarling and go have a great day! The expression hud from Lelutka is fun, definitely lets you stop the RBF more often. Gidge is Wearing:

No Reason To Rise

Icy cold winds are blowing across our island, and I’ve got new snuggly pajamas and a new bed, I’m never getting up. I have no plans, no commitments today and I see no reason why I can’t exist in this space for the whole of the day. Do you? I picked up this new bed at BAZAR because it was ridiculous and cute, and cheap (really good buy) and I had to have it. My onesie is from THE ANNEX and it’s available at the Miracle on 34th street event – which is an entire event full of TRANSFER items you can give away to other people! I can tell you I wore my toes sore walking that event yesterday and shopping shopping shopping. It was awesome to find ONE place with tons of stores to do my gifting this year. SO much easier. Brilliant idea whomever thought that one up. Nope, I’m in for the day. I am content, and some days that’s just got to be enough now doesn’t it? Go check out Miracle on 34th Street for your shopping needs for gifts! There’s something for everyone, no really – there is!… Read the rest

If you walk across my camera

Several years back, Billy Bragg and Wilco did a few albums on Woody Guthrie songs. Guthrie wrote the lyrics but they were never recorded. Guthrie’s daughter allowed Bragg and Wilco to write music and record the songs, Among them was the cryptic Ingrid Bergman. If you’ll walk across my camera,
I will flash the world your story,
I will pay you more than money
Ingrid Bergman I thought about her when I chose this background for these pictures, It’s reminiscent of Scandinavian embroidery and rosemaling. A few years back, dinking around on some genealogy website, I discovered she and my dad were cousins – sixth cousins, but still, he would have love to have known that. He admired her so. She once said, “Be yourself. The world worships the original,” which seems fitting since today I am not wearing my mesh head.  Now worship me.
I am wearing a fun dress from Katat0nik that you can get at The Arcade. There are all sorts of versions, but this is the most outrageously Christmassy.… Read the restBe yourself. The world worships the original.

There is always a November space

But there is always a November space after the leaves have fallen when she felt it was almost indecent to intrude on the woods…for their glory terrestrial had departed and their glory celestial of spirit and purity and whiteness had not yet come upon them.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Windy Poplars Collabor88 is here and just in time, bringing with it lots of warm and cozy clothing to layer for warmth and color and just because they are beautiful. One of my favorites is Erratic’s sweater with an integrated lace skirt or long tunic and matching leggings. HUDs change the colors of the leggings and the lace. There are so many color options your head will spin. I am wearing two of the sweater colors for today’s post.
I put on some Flair socks under the leggings and added some boots from Ingenue. The Ingenue boots can be found at Collabor88.
The big handbag is from Zenith and the wind-whipped hair is from Exile – all are for Collabor88 this month.… Read the restthere is always a November space

But I am done with apple-picking now.

My long two-pointed ladder’s sticking through a tree
Toward heaven still,
And there’s a barrel that I didn’t fill
Beside it, and there may be two or three
Apples I didn’t pick upon some bough.
But I am done with apple-picking now….Robert Frost I fell in love with this coat from E-Clipse. I had gone to the main store to look for something else and this caught and kept my attention. It comes in several colors and the scarf is integrated into the jacket. The pants are an older pair from Baiastice that are worth keeping in your closet for mixing and matching.

Miamai released these in a gacha full of delightful pumps, Most are luscious solid colors, but there are four rares that are all as lovely as these. I love the details on the jacket – the seams, the toggles, the loose folds of the scarf. The hair is from KoKolores and debuts at the brand new hair-centric event Hairology that opens soon.
These are some of my favorite earrings from EarthStones – falling leaves.… Read the restand there may be two or three Apples I didn't pick upon some bough. But I am done with apple-picking now.

If the jeans are right…

Ritu Kumar, who is one of India’s most successful fashion designers, said “When women wear denim it (the derriere) must look elegant. It’s the second thing every woman looks at in the mirror, but it’s the first thing she cares about. She does that half twirl, her back arched and her head craned around. If the jeans are right, the experience is transforming, like putting on a magic cloak.” And that’s the truth!

Since it’s “all about that bass”, Blueberry should be your go-to store for jeans, yoga pants, bootie shorts, body-con skirts and dresses and everything about that bass. If you’ve ever wondered why it’s “all about that bass” just look at the shape of that guitar. It’s bringing booty back and so is Blueberry. Not that booty ever left.
In was chilly, so I added a high-fashion leather jacket from Azuchi for Uber. It comes in three colors, though I settled on black after trying each color on twenty times.… Read the restIf the jeans are right, the experience is transforming, like putting on a magic cloak.

Exploring Vivara

There’s a new game in town. Well, a new place to game. I headed over to Vivara, a new gaming sim. I got dolled up with a couple pieces from The Instruments event, mixing a dress from DE.Designs with a feather bolero from SAS: Sascha’s Designs. There’s a lovely performance hall there and I thought since we can do anything in SL®, I might pretend I can sing. It’s purely pretend.

There are free tables there for neophytes like myself. You pay one linden and it is refunded. I don’t know how to play the games so that’s a good think. I mainly just clicked and clicked and whatever. I didn’t figure them out. Nonetheless, somehow I won 5L. There’s also a gallery and a concourse of shops. I took lots of photos because it really is a lovely place.

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la. La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la. La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la. La-la-la-look at my gorgeous new shoes from Glamistry. These Zinnia platform sandals are Glamistry’s newest release and have all the hallmarks of that brand, ultra high heels and platforms and near infinite ability to customize with the color hud.… Read the restYou don’t gamble to win.

Beauty: It Curves

“Beauty: it curves, curves are beauty. Shapely goddesses, Venus, Juno: curves the world admires.”…James Joyce


I am back at Furillen, the bleak and desolate sim replicating a limestone quarry and luxury hotel off Sweden’s coast. It’s bleak and spare and there is an austere beauty that makes it compelling. There is nothing austere, however, about me today.

Siddean Munro has released her newest mesh body, the Slink Physique Hourglass, a body for the curvilinear, the well-endowed Mae Wests and the wasp-waisted Dollys and Scarletts. Standard mesh will not fit because there is nothing standard about Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth or any of the other bombshells whose curves defined female beauty far centuries.

Women who opt for the Hourglass figure will have to wear appliers or specially made clothing, though certainly many clothing designers will rush to serve this market. Blueberry, whose dress I am wearing in these pictures, is among the first and even gifted all purchasers of the Hourglass Physique with a free bikini in the mesh body’s packaging from Slink.… Read the restcurves the world admires...James Joyce

The newest dress from Thalia Heckroth™ is all about the back. It is a simple sheath that is quite plain in the front and then, once your back is turned, reveals a lot of skin and a lot of design.

That does not mean it is severe. The front has a deep scoop neck and is open under the arms, so it is revealing, but with restraint.

But then there is the back! Actually the entire outfit is about the back as a closer look at the shoes will show you.

These new shoes from MiaMai released in September are very much about the back with the innovative new heel design that emphasizes the ankle and achilles.

I chose to wear the MiaMai Levels jewelry again. I love the single bold stroke of red, the solid geometry and the beautiful play of colors. This jewelry is everything – and available in a gacha at Shiny Shabby. The hair is from Moon, called Ethereal and I picked it up at Hair Fair this year. The skin is a mix of Glam Affair appliers on my Lelutka head. I used Glam Affair Meghan for the skin and eyebrows.… Read the rest“Look round and round upon this bare bleak plain, and see even here, upon a winter's day, how beautiful the shadows are!"
