Shut Up and Drive

I had to have the PINK Convertible from Consignment at THE ARCADE this month and as a result, my friends got cars. YAY for my friends right? But I DID end up with the pink eventually which is really all that matters. I should get a garage for it, don’t you think? I am a ridiculous addict of ice cream in both worlds, which is probably no surprise. I find I prefer PIXEL ice cream though because of it’s complete lack of calories. You might ask why I have pears in my hair. I think the appropriate question is, why don’t YOU have pears in YOUR hair? It’s Second Life. We can do anything. Now if you’ll excuse me I’ve got to eat this and then drive around like a looney. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Formentera

Picked up some goodies here and there again and as seems to be my habit these days… I took pics and then … crickets Above pic mainly shows some Collabor88 stuff. Baiastice‘s Foulard summer hat (tinted the foulard to match the colour of my dress) and  Glam Affair‘s Emma applier for leLutka, here worn on LeLutka‘s May head. I’m not sure where I picked up Avale‘s Natasha dress anymore, and I think Giz Seorn‘s Trixie denim jacket came from Cosmopolitan…. but I’m still sure that Lode‘s Matthiola bouquet came from The Chapter Four. A special mention for the Formentera house, name giver of this post. It’s by Milk Motion and it’s available at Collabor88 this month! I also went to Vintage Fair and I may of may not have bought some stuffs. Honestly, My RL is keeping me so busy that I am pretty mindless in SL lately, and unless i am like SERIOUSLY impressed by stuff… it’s likely not going to stick in my mind.… Read the restFormentera

Come What May

It’s been awhile since I fell asleep to Moulin Rouge. When I love movies, they help me fall asleep because I’ve memorized all the lines. Anyway, enough about me.

Vintage Fair!

Vintage Fair is open to all yay! I’ve got the scoop on the release from Neve – Fringed jacket with top and a million ways to wear it (well – almost !) This is Milla – oh gawd I do love it – so many options to play with, suede’s, pastels, florals and on and on – go take a nosey and check it out. (Main mesh body fits included) Of courrrrrrse I could not show the pink option right! This top sits perfectly with Neve’s “Minnie” jeans, I also tried it on with the “Sass” shorts – brilliant fit ! New hair I grabbed from the market place – its by Doe and is at The Arcade – I couldn’t be fussed with the lag over there so shopped for it second-hand on the market place – just enter the name of the item you’re looking for in the search bar et voila – someone will be selling it.

Nooooooooo! She’s done it again.

I never got around to doing a post about the Mina hair I’ve been wearing over the past week but damn as soon as I saw this I ripped off that wig and slapped this beauty on. Mina has done it again and added that something extra which to me makes her hair something extra and in this case its hair that goes from wet to dry to wet to dry to wet etc and although you can’t see it in this picture when wet you even get drops of water running down the strands. The wet look lasts for 135 seconds. Or if you wanted it dried super quick just whip out the hairdryer thats included and 5 seconds late super dry and stylish hair. I don’t really know what else to say, not that ever stops me, but yet again Mina has just added something NEW to SL hair. Every time she brings out a new hair there just seems to be something extra, whether that’s a bigger colour hud or the options in the “options tab” which allows you to change the way you style it, material and non material versions so people who want to reduce any lag issues their computer may have can still wear a great hair but without any impact on how their computer runs and on and on and now this wet to dry or dry to wet just adds another dimension.… Read the rest

After the Doom

I come in to the settlements to get news or when it’s barter time, just to make an appearance.  It’s important not to be forgotten out here. Not that anyone would be likely to be helpful if there was help that was needed. It’s more about position, about who you are in the grand scheme of things. I don’t barter. I take what I want and everyone can just like it or not.  Mostly, I don’t take anything. No need to create friction, unless I just feel like having a fight. Mostly I don’t. I come in to the main settlement every few weeks and wander around the perimeter. You never know what you’re going to find in the settlements, newcomers, oldbies with an axe to grind that’s as old as glitchpants, or calm. I am not here for trouble, just to learn what’s new, and to remind them I’m here. I’m always here.  They don’t need to know where I am exactly – just that I might show up. It might be a bad thing if I do.… Read the rest

Vacation Wrap Up

What can I say? The weather improved and I hit the beach for one last hurrah today!  I hit the beach for some paragliding and OH MY what an amazing day for it!  I’m cruising the sky this last day in a new swimsuit from EMPIRE which you can find at The Arcade – they have THREE suits and honestly, I can’t decide which I like best. This was the best way to end my vacation. I can’t think of a better ending. Time to head home. Back to fashion times. I’m ready. itsonlyfashionblog.com

Wander Away To Tempura

Since it’s not vacation if you don’t put on a swimsuit and do something lovely I decided to spend some time on the waterfront at Tempura Island which just happens to be near the vacation house I’m renting. Convenient, isn’t it? I thought so. Tempura Island has been here for 10 years,  can you believe it? It’s one of my favorite places for photos, and I was reminded of that today wandering the grounds. It reminds me so much of why Second Life can be such an effective escape for a little while, so much beauty is all around us and in so many forms. It’s a wonder. I have to admit I tried to ride this swan. He got quite cross with me and chased me out of the water. He looks ride-able though, doesn’t he? One more day of vacation left. I’m not sure how I’m going to spend it yet. A side note – The ARCADE is opening soon and to celebrate I pulled out an old release from MonCheri from a previous June Arcade round – this swimsuit.… Read the rest

The Yardsale List: June 2018 – August 2018

The Yardsale List is an ongoing list of all Second Life yardsales for any gachas or transferable items. We understand that there are many popular gacha events throughout the year that leave your inventories overflowing with extras to buy, trade and sell. To ensure that the list stays current with only active yardsales, every three months we will wipe the slate clean and start fresh. So if you’re a gachaholic and want to try to recoup some of your funds, why not have a yardsale? Just make sure to let us know about it so that we can place it on the list! Yardsales will be categorized into three sections; Featured Yardsales, Private Yardsales and Public Yardsales, then alphabetized by name. Featured Yardsales will be placed prominently at the top of the yardsale list, and will also receive a special link in a “Yard Sale” tab located on the Seraphim front page. If you would like to know more information about how to get your sale on the featured list please click the button below!… Read the rest

What’s Your Poison At The Arcade?

I have a troubling problem. I am addicted to the sweets that are created in SL. Maybe it’s not just because I love them in real life, but the more beautiful they are the more likely it is must have them. The ARCADE is a breeding ground for such creations and I have to admit, I love them for it. Wedding cake? I don’t need a wedding. I’ve got a cake. I’d rather have the cake, frankly. The Arcade, that bastion of goodness you didn’t know you needed, is closing tomorrow at midnight. All the lovely things will go away and you’ll have to wait three months. I on the other hand will be stuffing my face like a monster with these sweets. It’s not too late! Get over there before they are gone! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

The Arcade Closes at Midnight Saturday

“This was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one. There were still plenty left running to keep the air over Detroit filled with that choking industrial aptitude, but you were never far from a hollowed-out factory, massive steel tubes on the roofs pointing up toward the sky with nothing left inside but dust and cobwebs. These giant pillars of concrete and metal now jutted high like extended index fingers from broken and casted hands, pointing toward something they would never touch.”
― Michael A. Ferro, TITLE 13: A Novel
The Arcade closes at midnight Saturday and if you let that happen without picking up the fabulous industrial pieces from NOMAD, you will miss out. The gacha has the delicious name of My Cozy Little Industrial Facility that cracks me up in the best possible way.

While I love the gacha sets and have that completionist compulsion that busts my budget, but when styling an outfit, I always resist using the set.… Read the restThis was when the aging smokestacks atop the monumental factories began to shut off one by one

Shake it like a Polaroid picture

Matilda: Derek, I don’t know if you’re familiar with the belief that some Aboriginal tribes hold, it’s the concept that a photo might steal part of the soul. What are your thoughts on that as someone who gets his picture taken for a living? Derek: Well, I guess I would have to answer your question with another question. How many abordigenals do you see modeling? What’s a picture to you, reader? For me, it’s a way to document what I’m really feeling. And tonight, I needed to let off some steam. So yeah, I watched Zoolander tonight. Like a moment captured, it never gets old. I’m wearing:

Midori

When I saw the Tentacio kimono outfit for The Arcade was named Midory, I had to try it. When I was in college, one of my friends was a student from Japan named Midori. Midori and Midory are the same, when languages written in other alphabets are written in our alphabet, the transliteration may vary. She came home with me for Thanksgiving and Christmas and I remember we put on quite the feast with steamed cucumbers stuffed with pork, gyoza, tempura, and other tasty foods. She had a few kimonos and insisted on dressing me up in one of hers. It was very fancy and after she wrapped that obi around my waist again and again and again, I thought I would never need a jacket. So here’s to Midori, who, to be honest, I cannot imagine ever wearing anything so short as this dress that bears her name. I love the ease, the casual comfort with the nod to traditional forms in Tentacio’s dress. I thought these lace-up Kioko pumps from BREATHE are just the perfect blend of style and youthful insouciance.… Read the restPink isn't just a color, it's an attitude

I Might Have An Addiction

One of the things I love about The Arcade is it’s ever continuing magic when it comes to providing us with more things for the narrative of our individual SLs. For me, that narrative is chocked full of…..pets. My friend and fellow blogger visited the other day and said if it was a RL house it would smell, it was so full of pets. Alas it’s true. I’ve got this dog and that cat and the other thing, not to mention my Kittycats themselves. Give me your pets, your fishtanks, your sweet little loves to run around my house and make it less empty. I’m not alone when they are here. I love them all. They’re naughty. They keep me on my toes. Kitty almost knocked this pot into my beautiful Merpony aquarium. BAD BAD KITTY. But who really wants to live alone in SL? I wouldn’t trade the chaos for anything. Sometimes I just have to have them for no other reason than I CAN have them.  These bunnies just had to live with me, and I suppose I’ll have to watch the dogs.… Read the rest

Some Fairytale Bliss

I just realized I would have deserved a few pinches today considering it’s St. Patty’s Day, but pink will always be my favorite color because it’s cautiously optimistic and playful, just like me!

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.”
