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

Which Way To Shoegasm?

The question was asked yesterday, just before SHOETOPIA opened and I had to laugh and use it for my post. It was posed as a request for a landmark, but I couldn’t resist a bit of license. Shoetopia IS a Shoegasm however, if you’re a shoe lover as I am. Cajsa has been doing an extensive job blogging all the lovelies and I have to admit, I’m pretty jealous of her presentation skills. She’s got the tools and the talent, and her bright sunny photos make me covet everything I see. (Just like Hannibal Lecter said) I spent the night IN last night, goofing off and gaming, and my house looks the worse for it. No matter, my goals today are to see how many events I can cram into this ONE blog post (three seems to be the number) and check out some of the eyebrows MOUSE blogged about the other day.   I love clean, sharp eyebrows that don’t always look like you just got a terrible surprise, so I loved her post. I highly suggest you give it a look-see. I also want to mention that this bedhead/windblow/JBF hair from Monso from Collabor88 is everything.… Read the rest

The Sea Sprite


Fear not this little is not sad, she is just blue by nature. It helps her hide in the waters she calls home. She was a playful one when I was snapping these pictures of her in her watery home. She was doing flips, twists and all other manner of aquatic acrobatics. I have no idea how old she is exactly, she looks younger than I am, but you never know with this type of creature. She could be pushing a century and I would never know. She gave a beautiful iridescent shell when I had to depart, maybe it means we are friends now?

“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.”

Out of body. Out of mind.

Spring is my favorite season. Though, I could do without the wind. It’s been said when March rolls in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb, but in Las Vegas, they like to keep us on our toes. I shouldn’t complain. Compared to other states, NV’s weather may be perfection. Have you been to Designer Showcase‘s March Round? It also rolls in for bang each month. March brought in a brand new build along with new items. PurpleMoon Creations‘ Amberly Dress is one of those items. It’s almost like a make your own adventure story. Remember those? If you don’t, it’s easy. You make choices and find out the consequences. In this case,  the decisions won’t get you in trouble. Instead, you’ll find the colors and patterns that suit your mood for the day with the all choices Hud. Want to see? Click here for your lift to Designer Showcase. I’m wearing:

Fly Me To LEA

I woke up this morning and decided I desperately needed to see new things in my SL so I ran off to LEA to expand my mind and appreciation of beauty.  The place I ended up was LEA 16 and you ride a little space ship (or a fancy space ship as you like) through multiple builds which are a play of light, objects and motion. It was truly a perfect was kick start my day. I am showing off lots of new goodies this morning also so let’s walk through those. My clothes are from that awesome new shop POPPY and I know I’ve mentioned it before. They are OPEN now as of today.  You can get to POPPY riding this wild slurl.  They are lovely pieces that are out thus far and you’re going to want to check it out. If you were saying to yourself “I’d like a pair of heels that I could fall through space and time with, that are sensible yet cute” I’ve got a pair for you. You’ll be able to pick them up from INGENUE when SHOETOPIA opens on the 25th and oh my goodness yes, you’ll need them.… Read the rest

Slow Starter

I’m struggling to get moving today. I wandered over to Cajsa’s to look for coffee and to hopefully find some breakfast because I need to go shopping for pixel food. But now I’m lounging about on her comfy sofa and thinking about a nap instead. I’ll get up and do something productive soon, I promise. Maybe. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Casual Country Comfort

So, I love to laze about and read. This lovely Boho bed from DRD at The Arcade is big enough for lots of layers. My lazing cottage is the Daisy Cottage from HIVE for The Arcade. It has a lovely window that is perfect for some plants or pillows if you like hanging out front. In the background you can see a gramophone from Contraption, some artwork, a lemon tree, and The Secret Stores gorgeous vintage desk.

There’s a great couch made of pallets with blankets and colorful pillows from Kalopsia. The tile artwork is from DRD. The rug is from Kalopsia. The floor lamp is from Hive.  That gorgeous hutch is from DRD. Most of the furnishings in the kitchen are from my storage, though the ladder is from Scarlet Creative at this month’s Arcade. So is the great umbrella chandelier that you can quite see. There are actually two umbrella chandeliers (DRD & C.L.A.W.) at The Arcade and they are nothing alike. This gorgeous tray is from tarte. the serving plates and cutler is from Glam Affair.… Read the rest“Sometimes, when we cannot attain the freedom we are fighting for, we free ourselves by carving a new path to freedom.”

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.”
