The Most Important Top On The Grid

My entire outfit was planned around this bandeau from Tres Blah which is new for Collabor88. The colors offered are gorgeous and subtle, and this is a perfect wardrobe pick up because it’s a summer staple. It can go under blazers, and with long swishy skirts. You can dress it up or down and it’s a perfect compliment to our never ending beach party than is Second Life. Well, some of us anyway.

There were also shoes, and tights, but that doesn’t matter now. ALL that matters is this top. You see, I started with the top. I built everything around the top. The top was my focus.

Then the top became my obsession. Continue reading

Get Thee To Japan Fair

I was scrolling through my PLURK feed early yesterday morning and caught “JAPAN FAIR” from one of the blog aggregators that I added recently. That sounded like sometihing I couldn’t miss so I changed my blogging plans and decided to find this. The blog post they listed didn’t give a slurl and I couldn’t find it in search.

God Bless Dr Google.

For all the info here is the blog. And because I’m awesome here is the SLURL.  Continue reading

And Then It Was The 8th

Collabor88 landed with a BOOM and a THUD and the only other sound you heard was the sound of fashionistas heels clicking as they raced to get in. I am as excited as anyone with the gorgeous watercolor palette this round, it’s a very Gidgey experience.

KatatOnik right out of the gate and the adorable flats from Ingenue reminded me of the party dresses of yesteryear that I love so much. Is it wrong I want to dress like that every day? Continue reading

Help Me Find You on Marketplace

My afternoon began with a text from one of my best friends, Codie. “I need your help. I have to find something to wear to Dirk’s funeral.”

We spend a lot of time getting dressed for frivolous things in SL, things that don’t matter.  It’s amazing how your thoughts wander though, when what you are dressing for something that does in fact matter to you, when it’s not frivolity and trite.  Continue reading

Every single time I log in, some asshat has been in my house. The doors are always wide open. Wouldn’t you know it this time, as I’m trying to OUT for the night I find a raccoon running through the house?

I am just trying to go out for the night! GO AWAY RACCOON!

A Princess With Grace

Before the general American girl’s love affair with Princess Diana, if you old enough, you know we had Princess Grace. She was a real Princess of a magical kingdom that none of us quite understood why it was a kingdom (ok principality but when you’re a kid wtf is THAT?) but we knew she was a real princess. She was a movie star which is awesome and then she became a princess which was even MORE awesome.

What little girl could dream of more? Continue reading

What’s Not To Love ?

My new home from Alouette comes with the huge wrap around porch of my RL dreams.   After I got pixel Gidge ready for her very packed day of shopping she decided that ordering some breakfast up was exactly in order.  She has her own mind most days. Luckily, I live on an island that has everything and it was nothing to get some coffee to go sent over and some waffles.

It makes me not really mind the storm rolling in for the day. Continue reading

Does This Mesh Make My Butt Look Big?

GOOD.

I have resisted the big butt because I just hadn’t seen one yet that really quite did it for me. I didn’t DISLIKE them I just was MEH, and thus didn’t warrant picking one up. But I was having a Gidgey moment this morning that Sasy was helping me with, and I thought DAMN Sasy looks cute.

I didn’t really realize that she was wearing a mesh butt, her butt looked good but in a subtle way – bigger, rounder, super sexy but not so big I couldn’t stop staring at the butt. And with that she and I were off to demo butts.

Seriously, that’s friends, the kind of friends who demo butts together. Continue reading

Adore or Abhor ? Oh ADORE!

Adore and Abhor are at SKIN FAIR with a set of offerings to enhace and mix up your regular skin options.

Sileny made, at the request of her daughter, a bunch of brows in fun candy colors with a Morticia Addams severity to them. If you were a 20 something in the 90s you knew 20 girls who drew on their brows like that. Now they’re in their 40s and sad that they have no eyebrows. But that’s a different story. Continue reading
