CAI as in Cairo, Zha as in Asia

There is no greater thrill for a fashionista than to have some design named after them. If you have a name many folks don’t know how to pronounce, it’s even more thrilling because it doesn’t happen very often. So, yes! I was thrilled when Thalia Heckroth named her newest gown in my honor. I was even more thrilled though, seeing it’s modern lines and minimalist style.

The Colors of Fall

141025_006b

Autumn has been painting its palette all across Second Life for the past month. I stopped by Izzie’s because it is always one of the most beautiful seasonal sims and sure enough, Izzie’s portrait of autumn is beautiful. In fact, it’s so lovely, I decided to use a paint filter on one of my snaps to turn it into a painting. If you stop by Izzie’s, don’t touch the kitty, she is shy.

Would you update your viewer in the middle of a photo shoot?

141024 Raw from SL

Normally my answer would be “Hell to the No” but when I was shooting these pictures today, I figured it could not possible get worse and might get better. So when I saw there was a new update, I went for it. I have not been able to save a photo to disk since Monday and was saving raw shots directly from the SL viewer to Flickr. The photos for this post are raw, unedited pictures. They have not even been cropped. I know Flickr has a photo editor, but I don’t like it. Still, it turns out fine. I just like to play with a few little touch ups now and then. I am wearing a fun and adorable sailor sweater and flared skirt from MotiAme that I found at Kustom9 when I dropped by to throw money at Apple Fall, as one does. The sweater comes in gray, brown, blue, black, red and white. The skirt is in black, white and blue. They fit together well and have a lovely early fall feeling – for those days with brisk breezes, a bit of mist in the air and moments of sunshine. October in Oregon.

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.

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

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

It’s cold suddenly this morning. I’m not sure where it came from, other than NORTH but I’m going to have to reconsider my current wardrobe and possibly go shopping.

My Sewing Corner

All of the women in my family can sew, or did when they were alive. Everyone had these types of corners with fabric strewn about, with bobbins and pins and patterns, or pattern paper, tossed around willy willy.

Everyone can sew, except me.

I could never sort it. My mother actually became a professional seamstress, creating home decor items for boutiques of various sorts. If you could do it with a sewing machine, or even just a needle, my mother can do it. She could sew dresses for me, just looking at the picture. She made her own patterns, taught by her grandmother, who could do the same.

This beautifully detailed set from PIXEL MODE for THE ARCADE (which is STILL OPEN BTW) gave me a chance to give Pixel Gidge a new skill, she’s now going to learn to sew.

I love things for my home that continue or enhance the narrative of Gidge’s SL. These items fit perfectly into this alcove into my new house ! It was meant to be
