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:

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.”
