Dinner With Gogo

After I lay around gossiping with Gogo for about an hour, I announced to her that I was making pixel dinner and she was morally obliged to come over. I mean, look at me chopping things. I’m making way too much for one.  She had to come over, why waste so much food?

Fish dinner as the sun sets? Obviously, perfect. Gogo took the picture of the two of us because my plates were full bright and she was going insane. It’s true though, we fashion bloggers have a nature aversion to full bright. It makes us glow disconcertingly. Full bright is our kryptonite.  I’m just drinking my wine while she eats with a knife like a cavewoman and yells at me about the full bright.  #Secondlifeproblems. Continue reading

Early AM Studio Time

FAMESHED has another great round in store for you, and this gorgeous gown from Baiastice is beautiful. I love the washed out watercolor looks of the texture where it pools on the floor. Darkley posted a different color on her blog and styled it differently.  You can see it’s amazing whether worn very minimally styled or with accoutrements.  My computer is trying to spell accoutrements incorrectly. It’s driving me nuts. It keeps underlining it in red, and then I check it with a dictionary, no I’m right. What cretin set the spell check on this machine?

But I digress. Continue reading

Hair Fair Long Hair Part One

A few days ago there was a discussion of whether all the iterations of long hair have already been made. In other words, the “there is nothing new under the sun” argument that has been around for millennia. Well, take a look, and see if you think they are all the same.

You know, they say there are only 7 plots – but there are millions of stories.

Dearest Gidge…

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the star shine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.

My Everyday Physique

I have been fascinated by the idea of mesh bodies for some time, yet I have to admit, I’ve been somewhat unsure what I would use one for. After all, it’s mesh. How will my clothes go on over it? How will the alphas work? Is this even going to work? I was optimistic when Siddean announced SLINK would have a mesh body, even though I just wasn’t SURE.

You’ve seen it now, the nudity has abounded on blogs. Being nude in the new mesh body wasn’t my concern, I knew we could be nude and be beautiful. I decided to test how it would work as a functional piece of my every day look. Continue reading

Games People Play

jun26_001

 

When your television reception varies depending on the cloud cover, you tend not to get addicted to watching any particular program since you never know what channels you will receive at any given time. We lived too far from town for cable and did not have a satellite dish, so we did not watch a lot of television. Instead we played a lot of games, including dominoes. It was not the family favorite; that was whist. We also really liked canasta, cribbage,  and Scrabble® . But Dominoes had its rotation in the games we played during those bitterly cold winter evenings. I have a game ready in my living room anytime you want to play.

jun26_003My outfit is playful today, a flirty little top with a print of license plants from Osito that I bought at Fashion For Life last week and a bi-color leather skirt from NYU for Fameshed this month. This skirt comes in all sorts of colors and I was hard-ressed to choose one.

Hats of Whimsy and Citrus

I had a tremendous giggle over these hats from Xen’s Hats. Textured with various fruits, they’re silly and fun.

Sometimes I just love something that was made for fun. You don’t need for it to be super meaningful or high fashion. It’s just damn fun.

When I was a noob, I bought purple hair at CAKE. My friends I came to SL with asked “Why is your hair purple?”  My only response was, “Because it can be.”

That is sort of the same for these hats from Xen’s. THEY CAN BE HATS OF FRUIT – therefore they are. They are also 100% donation from Fashion for Life event so you still have time to pick them up, for no other reason than they are a fun item and a great cause.

Why I Always Attend Fashion for Life

I was browsing my inventory this morning, searching for something to wear with my earrings from Bliesen + Maitai for FASHION FOR LIFE and was reminded, due to my lack of inventory maintenance, of how many years I’ve attended Fashion for Life. It’s not something that’s ever been top of mind, like COLLABOR88, Fifty Linden Friday, or The Arcade, where I feel a RUSH and desire to go. More like, it’s something I should go to as a member of our community to support the spirit of charity and helping support American Cancer Society.

I’m lucky, genetically. There is no cancer in my family. It doesn’t mean there won’t ever be, it just means I’m not predisposed. My genes are on file at Columbia, because of different family medical issues, and I know for a fact that I carry none of the KNOWN genetic markers for any type of cancer.  Continue reading
