Crashy McCrasherton

141021

 

So I have been crashing every single time I saved a picture to disk for the last two days, perhaps some new incompatibility arose from upgrading my OS to Yosemite. I will have to figure it out soon, but I didn’t feel like trouble shooting today, so I just save the photos direct to Flickr®. That means these are truly raw photos, not even cropped. I just set the size of the frame inworld and clicked until I got the shot I wanted and so what you see is what you get. As to why it crashes saving to disk but not to Flickr, those are the mysteries of computers and graphics cards and code.

Vintage Is Cool or I Saw My First Flasher at the Vintage Store

121020_001

I have always like vintage clothing, particular that from the 40s and 50s when clothing was structured and fitted with sophisticated glamour the aesthetic goal designers had in mind. The Vintage and Cool event currently going on seems made for me. People were coming out of the austerity of the Thirties and the World War and the expanding economy and growing middle class allowed for a real explosion of fashion. This lovely dress from AVALE fits firmly in that tradition.

All About that Bass

1016_004

I do not pay a lot of attention to the Hot 100 as most of the songs recently seem to have Idol-itis – overproduced and full of melisma. However, someone on plurk mentioned having All About that Bass stuck in her head so I was curious and listened to it. I was surprised by its retro doo woo sound and was happy that such a positive body image song was leading the charts. Pop music popularity is dominated by the tweens, so the song’s popularity makes me optimistic about “kids today.”

Morning Are Complicated

Pixel Gidge has luxurious, beautiful mornings every day. I think this is because my own RL mornings are the opposite of hers.  As I stumble through the chaotic, wrinkled messy world that is RL I juxtapose SL Gidge’s morning when I blog – sitting it opposite my own.

The more peaceful and lovely her morning, make that the opposite for me. Continue reading

I Am Not Made To Be A Supermodel

Some of us just don’t do sultry well. I can try all I like to pose and pout but really the girl inside me is doing this…

For no better reason than “I can”.

SLINK released new bikinis and thongs for us island dwellers in SL and I was happy to spend my day in the m yesterday, enjoying the surf and sand. Continue reading

It’s Like Deja Brew All Over Again

Vixen Thibideau has launched a new EVENTS blog (I am spelling her name probably) and it’s called Eloquence SL. I’m always interested in GOOD events coverage, I enjoy SERAPHIM but I think that more GOOD coverage is a positive thing for shoppers and bloggers alike.  Eloquence is currently having  a launch event where many of the designers you know and love have put out free gifts, at the DEJA BREW cafe.

Any excuse to go to DEJA BREW I say. Continue reading

Such Spoopy * Much Versatile * So Romance

141009

Today I am wearing a versatile dress from Tee*fy. I love that it has options for the bodice. You
can wear the dress with the spaghetti straps alone or, as I did, add the optional harness. There are also lace cap sleeves you can add that slide right under the straps for a touch of romance. It has a fitted bodice with a mesh midriff. Christian Siriano says mesh is “done” but not if it looks as good as this. It is a great take on the Hotel Spoopy theme for October’s Collabor88.

And Now The Rest Of The Story

Beginning and ending my day in lingerie is a recipe for a perfect day. This new slip dress from ISON for COLLABOR88 fit the bill for my end of day stretch and relax time.  I had such a good, if not tiring, birthday. It’s amazing sometimes when you look around and realize how wonderful it is to be here, and all of the things you can do in this world, isn’t it? Continue reading

Happy Cinched Birthday

Today is my RL birthday. In RL I will spend it in a meeting room for 8 hours with giant pads of paper and electronic white boards. But In SL I’ve decided to give myself the girly day I deserve, starting with a luxurious bath.

My friend Natalie sent me lovely birthday jewels, in my own birthstone – OPAL – and I ‘m going o wear them all day. I love having a cursed stone as a birthstone. It makes me feel like a super hero with powers to overcome a curse. Continue reading
