The Heavenly Spheres make music for us,

The Poetry of the Spheres are on display at LEA4 – a celebration of music and poetry in a pastoral setting with lovely ancient ruins. From the description of the sim: Legend has it that the Ancient Gods of the Greeks have abandoned this realm, but evidence of their existence can be found above, in celestial spheres. These signs and symbols, both direct and abstract, are also reflected in Gustav Holst’s 1918 orchestral suite, The Planets, Op 32. You can explore each of the seven movements, representing the corresponding planets, by teleporting from the Olympus Island up to that particular sphere: Mars, the Bringer of War
Venus, the Bringer of Peace
Mercury, the Winged Messenger
Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity
Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age
Uranus, the Magician
Neptune, the Mystic There you will find a music link station for the appropriate movement – click on it to open a link to the music so you can play it on your browser while you explore.Read the restThe Heavenly Spheres make music for us,

This picture is illegal in Russia

Russia recently banned this meme of Putin in makeup that many were using to advocate for gay rights. In recent years, while the LGTBIQ community in the United States have seen some victories while still facing challenges and efforts to roll back their rights, sexual minorities have been experiencing ever-increasing oppression in such disparate places as Uganda and Russia. This is not a coincidence. As the Christianists have lost ground in the United States, they have exported their anti-gay agenda. This week, news came out about concentration camps in Chechnya–think about that. Russia has  passed legislation against gays, Uganda criminalized homosexuality and nearly passed a death penalty for homosexuality though we held off by pressure from Europe and the United States. Scott Lively is currently being sued for crimes against humanity for his role in advocating the repressive Ugandan actions, including advocating the death penalty for gays.… Read the restStop Homofobia meme banned in Russia

Behold the Hands

One of my favorite things about NYU is that they usually release as separates and the lovely camisole and lace skirt released at faMESHed are true to form. I love separates because it’s fun to mix and match. The pieces come with multiple colors selected by HUD. These lovely shoes are from Kenvie for Shoetopia. They can be customized at the heels, the shoe, and the straps.  And then there are the hand poses, released by oOo Studio for Fifty Linden Friday they are worth far more…which is a good thing since Friday has passed. But anyway, thanks to Bento and posemakers creating elegant poses Montaigne’s quote about hands is now true in SL as well. “Behold the hands, how they promise, conjure, appeal, menace, pray, supplicate, refuse, beckon, interrogate, admire, confess, cringe, instruct, command, mock and what not besides, with a variation and multiplication of variation which makes the tongue envious.”  My jewelry is from Kunglers for The Crossroads.… Read the restBehold the hands, how they promise, conjure, appeal...

The Arcade closes at midnight, do you know where your gacha is?

“…that fragrance which fills the soul with optimism and faith, the fragrance of the crushed beans beneath the jet of boiling water curving from the kettle, the smell of coffee.” In Halldor Laxness’ extraordinary book Independent People, there are well over 150 references to coffee, most of them reverent. That is as it should be. Laxness was Icelandic and they are among the world’s greatest coffee consumers–along with all the other Scandinavians. http://www.worldmapper.org/posters/worldmapper_1038_coffee_consumption_ver2.pdf Although Swedish-American, I am closer to real Swedes in my coffee consumption. When I was a kid, I put coffee in my milk, sometimes now I will put milk in my coffee when I get a latte, but usually drink it black. There is no perfume in the world quite so warm and evocative as the smell of coffee. So I was thrilled by the coffee shops at The Arcade. I took some pictures outside the other day, but today I am shooting inside where I combined elements from the RH Designs Coffee House and the PLAAKA Coffee Factory.  … Read the rest“ that fragrance which fills the soul with optimism and faith, the fragrance of the crushed beans beneath the jet of boiling water curving from the kettle, the smell of coffee.”

The Hazards of Working From Home

I’ve had a lot of different work spaces over the years for this blog. My favorite always tends to be a house with enough space and camera friendliness to just simply create a photo spot IN the house.I shoot around the fact that my house is sitting right there, most people never know (you didn’t!) but some days – like today – I keep getting guests in my shots. That’s my cat – Roomba thing that my friend Kitty got me a while back. It keeps my floors clean – and makes a cute shadow. Not exactly the editorial fashion look I was GOING for but EH. One well placed crop later though and boom – I’m back to it. I’m in love with these pumps from Garbaggio for Shoetopia – clear plastic FTW. But they’re super sharp. They have a handy dandy hud to edit the heel as you like. Now, I just realized it’s Friday – why am I so dressed up? I need to get comfy.  Catch you girls later! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Remembrance of Poses Past

I saw a great fashion spread featuring Dominique Tipper in 1843 Magazine a friend brought over because we share a love of The Expanse. All the pictures were composites of the same clothing in different poses, though very different from this one. They all had black backgrounds and vibrantly colored prints. Still, it did inspire me to shoot some pics for a couple composites. Back when my SL inventory was hyper-organized, I filled a couple pose stands by type of pose rather than by pose-maker. Sit and lie poses all organized together. I decided to drag them out and realize that most of the pose-makers in the stands have closed up shop for one reason or another. Among those of us who have blogged for a few years (nine years for It’s Only Fashion), who does not miss the excellent and puntastic poses from Long Awkward Pose or the flash of recognition when seeing a celebrity-inspired iconic pose from Striking Poses? While remembering the old, I will also celebrate the new.… Read the restMissing Posemakers of Days Past

“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.”

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******

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.”

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.”

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

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******
