Shiny

BYRNE is a new to me clothing line by ByrneDarkly Cazalet. Some of you may be familiar with her because of her involvement in Kamera Klub, the monthly photographic event that has produced events like the BOSCH IN HELL recreation of The Garden of Earthly Delights or from the Tart Gallery. She is an occasional denizen of The Velvet where I DJ, so when I saw the store name BYRNE and inspected to see who was the greater, I was pleased and kind of amazed she found time for even more creative endeavors. She does not have a huge selection of clothing yet, but I liked what I found. She likes colors and prints and is a bold designer. This is actually one of her more subdued prints. The dress is a lovely naturalistic pink and green that makes you think of a lovely young forest with a splash of roses on the front. When you purchase the dress you get four dresses – one with pink roses, one with green roses, both with regular and materials finishes. I wore the Materials version which reacts so beautifully to light.

Gone Fishing

Those Fisherman Pants from Zaara at The Arcade make me very happy. I have several pair, snatching them up for the gacha machine filled with party delights from Goa.

I love how the Pixicat vest from Collabor88 this month goes so well with it that I had to try out a few variations.

Under Electric Candlelight

The new Lola dress from Baiastice for Collabor88 is every kind of summertime perfection with wonderful summer colors and prints, lovely design details that highlight the feminine shape and flatter every figure. I love the rich texture of the ribbon inset, collar and bow. Even better, with the fitted mesh, it fits perfectly.

My Schedule Was Full

I got dressed quickly this morning, with a list of errands and things I wanted to check out. I grabbed a new purse from The Annex (how cute is that?) and thought – I’ll quick post up those pics I shot days ago before our blog went down, and head out.  All in all, ten minutes knocking out a blog post before hitting the road seemed like a great plan. After all, I want to go to a few events before RL Gidge has to hit the road.

That’s when it happened. My pictures, they weren’t in FLICKR. WHERE ARE MY PICTURES?

I walked around to my office and there they were, in my hard drive where I had left them. It seems I’d taken them but never cropped them. I also had done my great blogger mistake – I had changed my clothes and not saved any of my fashion details.

Did you hear that sound? That’s the sound of a blogger’s soul being wrenched apart by cruel fate. Continue reading

Summertime

Untitled

The living is easy at Collabor88 and at June’s Arcade. With all sorts of summer offerings like fresh cut, juicy watermelon, ripening pears and big juicy strawberries, all of which can be found at the 8f8 Green Grocers Gacha at The Arcade. I get hungry just looking at it. I suspect it looks better than it tastes, though, since it is made of plywood.

Of Corrupted Databases, Cabbages and Kings

Untitled

Regular readers of It’s Only Fashion will have missed us for the last two days. We had a corrupted database. From what I understand, it took a package from a North Korean agent in a black wool coat and dark glasses. Of course, anyone else would have known the agent was suspicious because it’s something like 90° and he’s wearing a black wool coat. Our database, however, was naive and unsuspecting. I hope it has learned its lesson.

Perhaps though, like Thomas Bailey Aldrich, it was distracted by two petals falling from a rose:

MY mind lets go a thousand things,
Like dates of wars and deaths of kings,
And yet recalls the very hour—
’T was noon by yonder village tower,
And on the last blue noon in May— 5
The wind came briskly up this way,
Crisping the brook beside the road;
Then, pausing here, set down its load
Of pine-scents, and shook listlessly
Two petals from that wild-rose tree.

Enough Is As Good As A Feast

Auntie Mame said those words and I believe very strongly in all things said by Auntie Mame. If the world were a perfect place, I would be Auntie Mame. Sometimes people write about what their SL fantasy is, perhaps they blog it – they’re a hunter or a goddess or a trashy slutty girl who has to put her goodies out on flickr for everyone to see 24/7. That’s their fantasy and I say go in peace, unless you don’t mark your goodies shots as adult on flickr and then well, I want to pinch your nerbs bcse that’s just rude. Continue reading

I am loving this side wrap dress from Ison. It comes in several summer colors as well as a few prints. I opted for this lovely blue, one of my favorite colors as I believe you can tell looking at the cabin and furnishings.

This Is How I Do Fantasy

RC Cluster is BAAAACK and she’s back bringing items to help you bring your SL a little more LIFE! I’m so excited to be able to pretend to wash dishes. Look how awesome I look. I’m not sweaty or annoyed at all. And I’ve got a lovely breakfast awaiting me when I’m done so really why wouldn’t I be happy to do a bit of cleaning? Continue reading
