Be like a peacock and dance with all your beauty

Peacocks are glorious creatures, peahens are so dowdy by their side. Aren’t we lucky that both the male and the female of our species can, if they choose, be as gaudy as a peacock or as subtle as a peahen? I am going for the gaudy side today with this gloriously embellished butterfly “Glasswings” dress from Reverie for The Arcade. It seems serendipitous that Sway’s and Moon Amore released peacocks and butterflies at The Arcade at the same times as that dress from Reverie. I love the accidental synchronicity of The Arcade. Adding the Sweet Things table and chair just makes it even better. Reverie goes full romance with this lovely pair so shoes. The peacock inspired nail polish is for Virtual Insanity, something I had in my closet for quite some time. The hair is a delightful bob from Vanity Affair. It’s called Miss Coco and can be found at Hairology. The skin and makeup are from Glam Affair’s Avril. The Reverie blue tiara had to be resized to fit the hair, an easy adjustment since it is modifiable.… Read the restBe like a peacock and dance with all of your beauty.

BAD DOG! BAD DOG!

My new dog doesn’t seem to realize that I’m CLEANING today. He apparently decided that what I really wanted to do was have a bigger mess! I don’t know about you, but the last thing I really like is for stuff to get completely drenched in soggy dog dirt after I get it clean. Now, this own’t do at all….BAD DOG! He doesn’t seem at all motivated to stop. I’m going to send him off to the Kennel Inventory soon if he doesn’t cut it out, I tell you what. A girl can only take so much doggie related chaos on a Sunday morning. All this AND laundry waiting for me today. This Sunday is the worst. Help help, I’m being oppressed. You can pick up a lot of today’s items to complete the narrative of your SL – hopefully less dirty than mine, at THE ARCADE which is STILL open folks! Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Pizza for Breakfast

The Arcade will be winding up in a few days and let’s face it, it’s PRIMO time to get in there and complete your collections. The Early Shoppers throngs are gone, you can move around without lag and the goods in the machines are all as awesome as they were DAY ONE. I decided that what I would do was make a run, right after I had some delicious PIZZA for breakfast. I need to keep up my strength. It’s tiring work,, all this shopping, so this comfy sofa from Sari Sari is working well for me as I relax my aching feet and back from lugging back my goods. What were your favorites this round? Did you manage to pick up the items you wanted the most? I’m now going to figure out if I should permapet my last kitty that I do keep about or if I’m going to buy something I don’t need. Decisions, decisions…who know.

I’m So Tired…

Tired of being admired…../sings in her best Madeline Kahn voice. I am tired though. My day has been exhausting. I’m worn out from people and things and the lack of them being what I want. So I’m to bed early, with some treats and my sleep mask designed to keep out the light until I decide it’s time for my day to start again. I’m surrounding myself in the magic of The Arcade, from my bunny guardian to my mask to my shift for sleeping, good things from The Arcade are going to guide me into golden slumbers this fine pixel evening. Now I’m going to call my pixel day done. If yours isn’t finished yet I’ll understand, but this girl has found her comfy spot and I’m going to be right here until the morn. Goodnight girls, sleep beautifully. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

WWDW

Maylee Oh of The Secret Store answered the burning question, “What Would Dita Wear?” for the September Collabor88 showcase. And she answered it beautifully with lovely rockabilly lingerie that hits all the right notes. Not only that, she answered ten times over in beautiful color combinations of polka dots and solids. From Dita to D!va, the fresh and flirty hairstyle is a delightful change from D!va’s trademark flyaway updos with its short bob and flirty hair ribbon. It, too, is a Collabor88 release.The skin and makeup are from Glam Affair’s Clary applier for Collabor88.
Featuring the lingerie seems like a great time to feature my bedroom freshly done up with lots of highlights from The Arcade. Click to view slideshow. The Aria bed gets special mention for all the fun and delightful animations in it, including the initial animation when you first pose on it – jumping up in down in circles. ****SHOPPING LIST******

Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans

“Every lake belongs to the quietness desired by the swans.” Mania Khan must know swans, they do love the quiet, the lee side of an island lake, where the wind does not ruffle the water. I thought of that quote when I saw the {anc.} swans at The Arcade and decided to rez them on a quiet eddy of water with some flowers (also from anc) and trees from HPMD.
I am wearing a lovely satin charmeuse slip from Thalia Hackworth™. It comes in 14 colors. You could wear a different one every day for TWO WEEKS! There’s a new release from Lelutka. I already blogged, but it’s too perfect not to share again. My earrings are from Kunglers. The makeup is from Glam Affair for Collabor88. ****SHOPPING LIST******

A-Frame Life

Growing up on a resort lake with twenty-one year round residents, but thousands of weekenders who flood the lake and live in the more the hundreds of lakefront cabins that are empty most of the year, I am very familiar with A-frames. Lots of people bought A-Frame kits or pre-made A-Frames, much faster than the old-fashioned bungalow style cabins that signal older homes on the lake. This A-Frame from Barnesworth Anubis has an advantage over many of the lake front cabins as the ceiling rests on a short bit of vertical wall. The A-frames on the lake often did not have that bonus, which often meant a lot of space behind the couch when it was shoved against the wall and sometimes a clunk on your head. A-frame weekenders almost never came for winter ice-fishing, their cabins hard to heat with what heat they had rising to the ceiling and escaping from the lakefront windows. But they sure are pretty when you’re out in the canoe late at night, all the light from their wall of windows facing the lake, so bright and illuminated in contrast to the smaller windows on the bungalows.… Read the restOne could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

Lovely Lace from Baiastice

I am loving the new jumpsuit from Baiastice for Collabor88. It comes in two versions for each of the twelve colors it comes in, with a plain, solid bodice or with a lace bodice. I chose the lace bodice because I was feeling frisky.
It’s a great pantsuit and looks even better with the bright, bold Hebe shoes from EMPIRE. I decided to chill out on the deck in the junk patio chairs. I think they need a paint touch up, but I am feeling too lazy to do it. Soy released a lot of plants which made their way onto the deck, too. The Roxy Darling hair from Clawtooth for Collabor88 was a great choice for the jumpsuit. Not only is it lovely, it covers up any untoward exposure of your nipples through the lace on the jumpsuit’s bodice. The jewelry is from Kunglers for The Crossroads. The makeup is Glam Affair’s Clary from Collabor88. Store info at Blogging Second Life

You Look Fine

"You look fine", that is what she told me when she woke me up from my nap to take a picture in the yard. I knew I shouldn't have trusted her, you never trust an older sibling. I should have learned that over the years, but did I? Obviously not or else I wouldn't look like I got into a fight with a squirrel.

Oh well even looking like still have sleepiness in my eyes we are still a cute pair, though maybe next time I will decide when we take a picture!

Death by Chocolate Is a Myth

This I Know, Because I lived
I’ve been around for broken hearts and how Death by crying doesn’t exist, though
The headaches feel a bit like it
You might explode
But you reach the end of the road
And you, little tree
I’m certain you will grow Tears on your pillow will dry and you will learn
Just how to love again
Oh my weeping willow
Let your leaves fall and return

Life Is Uncertain, Eat Dessert First

The veggie tray, apple pie, salt and pepper shakers and waffle iron can all be found at The Arcade. The uncertainties of life are manifest every day. Some uncertainties are harder than others. My sister has Stage IV lung cancer. But her future is still uncertain, it’s quite possible the chemo will kill her long before the cancer can. She’s been in the hospital for two weeks now as a mold has developed in her lungs, thanks to chemo bringing her white blood cell count down to zero. On Thursday, I learned she has developed VRE, a anti-biotic resistant bacteria similar but much more rare than MRSA, the OMG of countless House episodes. Of course, because when you are going to ER three times a day for 90 minute infusions of antibiotics, you develop anti-biotic resistant bacteria. I think it is time for her to eat a lot of dessert. Ice cream, apple pie, chocolate cake, brownies and coffee nips. Go for it!
This skirt is exactly like the ones I prefer in my first life.… Read the restLife is uncertain, eat dessert first.

Sunday Morning Solitude

Sometimes I have too much solitude in my SL. You’d think a place full of avatars looking to make fuck might be rife with social opportunities but you’d be wrong. It’s strange how the isolation can wear on you, after years and years.  Lucky for me The Arcade this round presented me with an opportunity to have new friends in my life, and these lovely labs will now be part of my SLife. They’re always happy to see me and never make me feel alone. I love these guys. I’ve got my iced coffee and I’m ready to face my day! If you noticed my new eyes, they’re from Banana Banshee. I’m going to be showing you them more in depth when I’m not stumbling around in a caffeine addicted fog. Until then – Happy Sunday girls. Let’s all stay pretty! itsonlyfashionblog.com
