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
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
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
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
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
Yesterday Sasy showed me that she was already blogging this adorable casual summer ensemble from Lacuna in pink. When I got done weeping, because everyone knows I OWN PINK, I declared loudly I SHALL BLOG ANOTHER COLOR!
Well, it was something like that.
But finding a color named Linden Green was an easy leap to what to wear, I mean, how was I supposed to pass up LINDEN GREEN ? I also considered blogging this tank with all the various sizes floating around me, with the title MAKE IT RAIN.
I’m amusing myself a little much I realize but it’s early, and I’ve had two cups of coffee.
This cute little summer set is available from Lacuna at MY ATTIC for Match. It comes in a ton of colors and they all look comfortable and great for beach days or whatever it is you’re up to in your Second Life.
This hair, also from MY ATTIC from EXILE is called 1985 and I confess, hair parted on the left with big bangs and huge floofy hair is exactly how I spent my 80s. The only thing missing here is the brittle crunchy look we all had from having perms in “the back” of our hair. I’m not sure why we did this. But it was a thing, for sure. Kavar has improved on the style we wore for 2014 for sure.
My jewelry today is from MAXI GOSSAMER for COLLABOR88 and it’s a perfect compliment to my casual look today.

A skin named for one of my favorite female characters, a girl who isn’t afraid to singe total bastards to death via her dragon, had to live up to it’s name. I was excited to see this skin from Ab.Fab at Skin Fair but as with anything named after an iconic image, I wasn’t sure it would live up to how much I had hyped it in my mind. Continue reading
My best friend and I, upon hearing Maximilian Schell’s name, are likely to starting singing “die Schöne TIIIIIINA” because we are ridiculous fans of the movie “The Freshman”. As I kept saying Sunny Tuli I kept hearing Schöne Tuli in my head.
Umlauts over o are alt-0246 btw. The more you know.
Now, for the sexy bits.
Rockberry has released skins for Skin Fair and today I’m reviewing MIRA in the light tone.
Rockberry is a skin from my long ago past that I was excited to get a chance to look at via SKIN FAIR this year. I remember long ago, them participating in a hunt or an event and liking them enough to go back shopping. This was before the grid was plagued by nonstop events, of course.
This will be a full review with body shots after the cut.
