I like everything I wear for my blog, but every once in a while an outfit will strike a special chord and make me feel extraordinary. Azul’s Abigail for Black Fashion Fair is such a dress. With all the bare skin, it was critical that it fit perfectly since I could not use alphas to block any of the bodice in the mesh top, not with such exposure on the side. As you can see, the fit was perfect and I got a lot of compliments on it when I wore it for my set this morning.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

NYU’s tapered pants and vested shirt are two separate pieces available at Xiasumi School. The top has a HUD allowing you to choose between six colors for the shirt. The pants come in two versions, one to wear with this vested top and the other to wear with other items. They come in several colors. I chose to wear black with the pinstripe, instead of matching exactly.

I do not worry very much. Worry does not prevent mishaps or change outcomes; at least not for the better. It can only make things worse, distracting us from getting things done, making our minds race with one fret after another. The heroic Corrie Ten Boom had this to say about worry, “Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it robs today of its strength.”

Shut Up And Dance With Me

When I’m nervous I talk too much. I become verbose, searching for non-offensive words especially when I fear confrontation might erupt but I still feel a need to communicate on a subject. I’m trying to be less so but it’s difficult especially WHEN the nerves take over and I can’t even remember what I was trying to say half the time, given the amount of words I have spewed.

Fashion For Change

Fashion For Change opened yesterday – a fundraising event to raise money for Womankind Worldwide, an organization working to challenge discrimination against women around the world and to increase women’s participation and voice in the policies that affect their lives. Fashion For Change runs from April 11th through the 25th and several of my favorite stores are participating including Azul. This dress is an exclusive for Fashion For Change and was created with options to change it up. Here I am wearing it without the overskirt.

Wash Day Smosh Day

It’s a great testament to how important it can be to include your blog or FLICKR link in your group notices, this washtub prop is. I review notices on my phone, and saw this and made note to pick up to when I logged in. Despite having been gone a week and being capped all my notices still go to my email so I can still see what came out while I was gone. Perfect! I also picked up another decor item while I was there so double whammy for the creator at Shutter Field.  Continue reading

With apologies to The Ramones.

They’re shopping in a straight line,
They’re bouncing off a full sim,
the fashionistas are losing their minds.
Collabor88 Bop.

Hey ho, let’s go! hey ho, let’s go!
Hey ho, let’s go! hey ho, let’s go!

They’re piling on the mesh bits,
Trying to to make it all fit,
Pretty in Punk’s a big hit.
Collabor88 Bop.

Hey ho, let’s go
Shoot’em in the back now
What they want, I don’t know
They’re all dressed up and ready to go
