Santino Rice's little ditty "It's only fashion" seems a perfect title for my little fashion blog as you and i know that fashion means the world to him. Co-founder of It's Only Fashion and Blogging Second Life.
Collabor88’s theme for its August Birthday celebration is Plastic Fantastic. In my first life, I would not be caught dead wearing plastic, but this is not first life. Here I don’t have to worry about whether fabrics breathe and my avatar does not sweat, so there are no fetid swamps of trapped and suffocating skin. Instead, we have the bright, shiny flash of plastic. I like the dress from Baiastice that takes advantage of plastics best qualities to give us that flirty hem and gleaming sheen. Continue reading →
Lelutka’s Bandanda Day contributions to Hair Fair are always a work of art. Bandana Day is always the last day of Hair Fair to remind us, after celebrating our crowning glory for two glorious weeks, that sometimes people lose their hair for a host of reasons. The purpose of Hair Fair, despite how we may feel, is not just about making us look good, it’s about prompting us to do good with our shopping dollars, to raise money for Wigs For Kids. So Bandana Day is a reminder, there’s a more serious underlying purpose than just making us look good.
Only one more day of Hair Fair, one more day to find gorgeous hair and raise money for Wigs for Kids. This blog will show a few of the EnVOGUE hairs for the designer I profiled earlier today. I will also show of the fun outfit from Hucci that makes me thing I should try salsa dancing. Other highlights are some fun sandals from Pure Poison and crazy bold earrings from Mon Cheri – all at Collabor88. I will let the photos speak for themselves.
It’s Only Fashion interviewed EnVOGUE’s Casandra Rain who offered several styles at Hair Fair 2017.
What drew you to designing hair? When did you start? What are some of the changes that were most significant for you?
I am a woman … so how is a woman ? Never has enough clothes … enough shoes …. and enough Hair. Because once in 2014, I needed badly a hairstyle that I could not find back then in SL, I have decided to make it myself since I have experience in RL with 3D programs. That hairstyle is a retro one … never was for sale in mainstore and never will be, is just for myself 😛

How did you choose your store name? Does it have a special meaning for you?
enVOGUE is a french expression for something trendy, fashion and elegant. I always like to check real life hairstyles and sometimes I request ideas from costumers to help me create something they want. So it has a special meaning for me because it shows how much I care for what people believe that are good haircuts to come from RL fashion catwalks and magazines to SL streets
One of my favorite songs ever is “There’s a Boat That’s Leaving Soon for New York” from Porgy and Bess as sung by Phoebe Snow. This promenade on Staten Island made me think of the song. To be honest, lots of things make me think of this song. It’s on my iPod and I play it frequently. Her voice was amazing and she was a heroic woman.
There’s a boat that’s leaving soon for New York
Come with me
That’s where we belong, baby
You and me can live that high life in New York
Come with me
There we can’t go wrong, baby Continue reading →
