I have to confess to being a hoarder in SL. Ok maybe a bit in RL. But this year I’m trying to change that, and I’ve already taken my inventory from 114k to 110k by picking a letter of the Alphabet and ruthlessly deleting. I’ve also done some foldering, which if you know me is a min miracle.
While rummaging though, I realize I’ve got every farking dress Baiastice ever made including all from her PRE-MESH days and well, let’s be real I don’t need those. So I started deleting, checking dates, more deleting and then I realized I didn’t remember this dress. Continue reading
A nice job texturing a simple dress can be as much of a skill as anything. This little halter dress from Ducknipple makes me think it’d be cute at a more elegant pool party as well – with your swimming suit underneath.
It’s perfect for the cocktail hour of said party. It makes me feel summery and ready to be rid of all my baggage of the winter season. I am also wearing some kicky new pumps for SLINK feet that are from LWarwick. They’re nicely made and great slip ons for casual or more dressy occasions too. Continue reading
I am adding this dress from Baiastice to my folder of staple foods when it comes to classic dresses. I’ve worn it twice now and that’s a definite endorsement. It’s classic lines paired with casual comfort is perfect whether you’re feeling cocktail fancy or just comfy casual.
Today I’m somewhere in between. Continue reading
This gorgeous new Belted Dress from Gizza demonstrates how much textures affect clothing. Giz Seom made this with a casual, everyday argyle as well as this glamorous club-hopping snakeskin. The argyle has a turtleneck collar as well while the snakeskin has a jeweled necklace that I decided not to wear – going for something simpler. You can see the options from the vendor picture below.
Meanwhile, The Arcade has inspired me to have a vacation home in the mountains. The lodge from Scarlet Creative is a snug, small little cabin which is what you want. You don’t want such a big vacation home that you spend all your vacation cleaning. I have been decorating it with lots of items from The Arcade, including the wonderful ISPACHI wood carvings. There were some excellent electric signs from Seven Emporium and you can assume what you will about the one I chose.
Arcade opens on the 1st and I’m SO excited! ALL THE THINGS! I want ALL THE THINGS. Ok well most of the things. One of the first things I’m excited about are these adorable fans for your home. You might thing “oh fans” but they’re just SO adorably textured, they kick up your decor as well as create a nice cool breeze as you go about your boring housework.
They’re an adorable touch! Continue reading
The MiaMai Bridal Collection is out and inspiring me to try out Quicktime’s new built in screen capture film-making. Monica Outlander of MiaMai has found inspiration in the new materials option and her inspiration and craft are really shown to great effect in this gown where the shine and shimmer of materials add luster and glimmer and subtle shading. It’s a gorgeous gown that inspired me to run over to Memento Mori to shoot some pictures that might capture some of the magic in her gown. The song is Sara Bareilles’ The Light because light is so much a part of the experience of wearing this dress – and of Memeto Mori.
Not the little dusting of pink in the light.
I’m counting down the days until Game Of Thrones begins again. It’s pretty much the only reason for living (kidding). To keep in the spirit of one of my favorite characters Daenerys, I found this super cute mesh gown from On A Lark called Dragonius, it has dragon scales…how nifty! I also really love the bottom of the dress, the gathering and the splash of color peeping through.
Also, here is an obligatory close up because why the heck not!

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and I DJ’ed at The Velvet. I put together a set that was about all sides of love, the sweet hopeful love of Valentine’s Day Lovers and the doomed and bitter love of the anti-Valentine’s brigade. It covered many genres and was altogether great fun and good music. Also great fun was this short dress from Legal Insanity, a Valentine’s Day gift. I generally don’t wear graphics on my clothing, but this appealed to me and seemed too perfect for my set to wear anything else.
Maybe I should have shot a close-up to show the fabulous booties from Baiastice. These were released at Shoetopia, but they will be fresh for a long time with their immaculate construction and gorgeous studded heels.
A quick LOTD post. Sometimes, I just have to go back to my dolly roots and Rotten Toe is an excellent place to make that happen. Happy to see they are dabbing into mesh.
If you are in the Glam Affair group, head over to their store and pick up this super cute V-day skin freebie.
