Miamai’s Black Label event THE GOLDEN THREAD launched several gorgeous new releases. Shoes from Miamai are always something a fashionista needs, because the simplest touches, faux platform, gorgeous burst of purple on the heel, transform a traditional slip on strappy heel into a little work of art for your feet.
It’s that something extra in styling, that sets the truly unique apart and makes them not only coveted but admired as well. These area must have.
Now I wish I had some cute shoes to put on in RL!

One of the things that makes Collabor88 a hallmark event each month is that the releases from the core group of designers are certain to be high quality, must have items. It’s a combination of talent, reputation and love of what they do that they put into every piece they release. Events get tired, and worn out. Collabor88 roars back in every month and it’s always the same chatter “I can’t get in.” “Someone leave Collabor88″ “It’s been two days and I can’t get in”. This isn’t because of the cache of simply going. It’s because there are a core group of designers releasing great things that add beauty and style to our second lives, head to house.

This month’s Collabor88 theme is hibernation – that urge to stay home, warm and snug and sleep through the cold, bitter winter. Today is a rare snow day in Portland and I would love to hibernate at home, but I have to go out into the cold.. Brrr! I ran out of time to blog before the bus arrives, so I hope you like the slideshow.

It’s been quite some time since I’ve blogged here on It’s Only Fashion or anywhere else for that matter. Taking a break from virtual life and plurk life and sitting at my computer has been pretty refreshing. I’ve mostly just been getting ready for the holidays and spending more time with RL friends. I mean, I do check in from time to time, I have a sim and a store that I don’t want to completely ignore but it’s been nice to concentrate on other things. I highly recommend it.
I had some alone time earlier and thought I would log in and check out the xmas expo and all it’s holiday goodies. While there I purchased this vintage dress from Leri Miles Designs called Olani in Ginger Girl. This dress’ proceeds go to charity in support of Relay For Life.
One of the blessings of blogging is that people come to know my style and send me scout reports of finds that are “oh so Cajsa” and generally they are right. This time the report was spot on. In fact, why is this dress not named Cajsa?
The Twist Dress from Coquet can be purchased in black, cream or red versions. The white tube dress that lies under the black, cream or red wrap dress comes in a lovely broderie anglaise. You can purchase HUDS that allow you to tint the white portion. There are three sets of 3 or you can megabuck for all 9 options. Add that to the 3 wrap colors and you can see that this dress has a lot of possibilities – and every single one is lovely.
While babysitting young Sophie for Gidge, I was watching the snow fall and thinking about the coming Christmas gift-giving. Luckily I come from a family that has never been big on giving lots of gifts. With such a large family, it was pretty much essential that we draw names and set spending limits and focus on homemade gifts. I have always had a strong preference for homemade gifts because they are often so much more creative and fun to give and to get. While reading folks on plurk worrying about how to afford Christmas gifts and all, I thought it might be fun to share some of the things that can be given as gifts. Continue reading →
My Christmas tree from LAQ Decor was a great find, Sasy recommended it when I was casting about for something new. I haven’t been feeling well so comfy clothes from Somnia were perfect for my rainy night in.
Feeling crummy and wanting to do all the things is frustrating. Add to that gloomy weather, and a general malaise and decorating my tree was the most cheery thing I could think of to do. Continue reading →
I completely fell in love with this coat from Topazia even though I am wearing it without its fur cuffs and collar. It comes in 9 lovely colors and is styled to easily wear over a dress or skirt. The collar and cuffs are typical prim fur with the typical alpha glitches that only disappear when viewed from the right direction. I thought the coat looked more chic and modern without them. However, for a more luxe look you can certainly add them. For me, I will go with the clean lines of the simple mesh coat.
As you can see, it’s not lacking for design details that define it as a high end coat with the caplet bodice and the lovely bow. The dress, worn a size smaller peek sour where it should and not where it should not. The little handbag from Cherry is delicious. Continue reading →
