Hello Cold Weather

December is here and that means Christmas! and The Arcade! and it is up for debate which is more exciting. It’s so easy to go the red and green route for the holidays, but I resisted, buoyed by the gorgeous Camellia lights from {anc} over in the corner. I went for pinks and turquoises, think Miami meets Idaho. I liberally used the edit menu to tint my furnishings just a bit and even retexture a few things such as the runner on the side table. I know it’s a blend of modern and traditional that should clash, but it doesn’t. I think of Simon de Pury when I decorate, “Be bold, be brave, be amazing.” Why not mix modern settees with traditional cupboards and folk art and deco end tables? If you can make harmony of contradiction, then it’s not just bold, it is amazing. Speaking of amazing, I love the Bauwerk Dall, a carved deer with exaggerated legs and a sleek, minimalist form. I placed several deer statues in the house, they are such beautiful animals.… Read the restHello Cold Days

A Sound of Thunder

There was a downpour yesterday, raining so heavy that at times it looked like it was dark out during the day. While it was cold, grim, and miserable outside, inside was warm with food, friendship, and the fellowship of good company. Countering the gray, cloudy rain, there was a bright yellow sun in the form of this lovely minidress from Decoy for Collabor88. I have been thinking of A Sound of Thunder a lot lately. It is a short story by Ray Bradbury that I read in 8th grade English along with a few other unforgettable Ray Bradbury stories. Some folks go back in the past to hunt dinosaurs with the world heading in one direction and return with the world headed very differently. It is the only thing that makes sense of this crazy month. Don’t you love this lace up shoes from fri.day for Collabor88? My hair is from Stealthic, also for Collabor88. This is my first introduction to Stealthic and I love the red shades. My jewelry is from Kunglers, the necklace can be found at Shiny Shabby and the rings at Cosmopolitan.… Read the restA Sound of Thunder

OMG I Have To Clean My Inventory… The ARCADE is Coming

There is nothing I dislike more than when it’s time to divest myself of my THINGS, unless it’s because it’s almost time to get MORE things. I like More things. More things is good. I sat down this morning with a cuppa and my great big inventory and though self, let’s make some room. I realized very quickly that it MIGHT be easiest to start with deduping the chaos of my multiples of same items. Then I went on to SYSTEM skins. Oh system skins, you were good to me. You were so so so good to me. And now, now you’re like used saran wrap. I can’t put you on anymore. I felt pangs as I rifled through folders Cajsa set up for me years ago – folders that were truly set up for me to use and I’m an asshole and mostly didn’t and so, everything in them was obsolete and system and THUS = DELETE. But still, the number was barely moving. I was going to have to get ruthless. I was going to have to start deleting things that…gasp….I used to love.… Read the rest

14 Years and You Still Rev My Engine

     

        Hiram and I celebrated 14 years together November 16th. That is a crazy long time. Someone on plurk said it was like 100 RL years, lol. I think it would be hard to find anyone else together online for that long. Through everything, Hiram is my best friend and I can't imagine my life without him. He is so smart, creative, and talented. He challenges me and keeps me interested. He is silly and fun (something I need because I am serious, focused, and driven). He balances me out and is the yang to my yin. Peas and carrots. Peanut Butter n' jelly. Hiram and Kirsten.

Happy 14 Years, Timothy! Thank you for making them wonderful.

To fly we have to have resistance

Resistance is not futile. Resistance gives flight to hope and defies despair. Resistance reminds us that we are a better nation when we embrace social and racial justice. While the arc of history just got a big kink in its bend toward justice, it still bends. We have lived experience that gay rights, women’s rights, civil rights and human rights are empowering, not weakening our country. They cannot erase that knowledge, the lived experience of Americans who saw that gay rights bring joy, that trans liberation brings freedom, that women’s rights brings advancement, that immigrant rights bring progress, and that human rights bring progress. They can try to take away those rights, but the living experience of our people prove their crabbed and cruel vision of the future is a lie. We will prevail in the long run. They are on the wrong side of history which is why even their temporary victory fills them with rage instead of celebration. Meanwhile, we can still enjoy life…and fashion.… Read the restTo fly we have to have resistance

Such a Nasty Woman

It is Election Day at long last. Elections in America are far too long and of course, the campaigns in the commentariat are even longer. After all, there’s already speculation and talk about 2020 before 2016 is decided, because the media would rather talk horse races than policy. This is the first truly existential election since 1860. People who complain that the election is not about issues this year are wrong. It’s just that the issues on the ballot are not the issues we are used to voting on—whether we are a free country or an authoritarian one, whether the United States controls it foreign policy or follows the dictates of a former KGB agent, and whether we want to continue as a democratic republic or are ready to just give it all up and hand it over to a despot. Thwse are the issues of this election and they could not be more important. I am wearing suffragette white even though I voted two weeks ago. I am excited to be electing the first woman president.… Read the restSuch a Nasty Woman

Apply Yourself

This Verushka dress from Liziaah is striking in its details – all very architectural and rigid, but intricate and complex – a baroque form of modernism. It is also unusual in its construction. With the advent of mesh, we have lost the old form of system layers and while we often use appliers for lingerie or layering, there are few people making clothing using appliers and mesh pieces. Liziaah is one of those few. This dress is applied and the dreaded flap for the skirt is added, however, since this is mesh, not prim, it has not of the flaws of past. It conforms to movement, it reacts to the light the same as the applied textures. In the end, it makes a beautiful dress that is form-fitting in ways that mesh cannot achieve.

Verousha is a form-fitting dress with a corset-like top and a pencil skirt. The sheer neckline is embellished with a mesh neck corset embellished with pearls and feathers. The laces and chains in the Hyacinth shoes from Glamistry echo design elements in the dress.… Read the restNature is the inspiration for all ornamentation.
