Monica Outlander made this stunning gown with the peacock print insets, releasing them at the Fashion Pride event in March. She produced it in several colors, but my favorite is this gorgeous royal blue.
I admit I am an SL hoarder. I have items in my inventory from 2007. In fact, I am wearing items from 2007 in this picture. Now, I am not the worst. I do throw things out. Pose stands, landmarks, notecards are ruthlessly trashed. All my shoes with invisiprims have been deleted. Pants with sculpted bottoms and prim flap skirts – gone! Full bright hair – done! Bling – get outta here! But then, I falter.
I think Monica Outlander makes more use of materials than any other fashion designer. You can see her fascination with its possibilities in almost everything she makes.
But how could anyone delete something as gorgeous as this gown? Even if I never wear it again, I might. You never know, right?
The princess dress from Adore & Abhor was released to celebrate their sixth anniversary. It is rich in design details including a sheer overskirt, a lovely ribbon belt and a cameo collar.
Let me start with a confession. I do not hate Shopping Cart Disco’s SL Secrets. From sociology and evolutionary psychology, I understand the role of gossip in defining community norms and values. It is possible that anonymity allows more viciousness than we might see in first life, but given the many stories about young people driven to suicide by online harassment on Facebook® and Twitter® coming from non-anonymous classmates, I think that anonymity is a smaller factor than we might think.
Sometimes the secrets make me think, sometimes they make me laugh, sometimes they surprise me. Secrets often spark discussions on Plurk® and I suppose they do on other social media as well. Sometimes I agree with the secret-makers, sometimes I do not. One thing most secret-makers have in common is an idea of how the world should be and they want us all to know it is out of alignment with their standards.
Today a secret maker repeated the all too common “Get a real life” mantra that always seems so ironic coming from someone whose emotional investment is Second Life® is so powerful they are compelled to create anonymous secrets to share their opinions. This time, the “Get a real life” message included an insinuation that purchasing from SL creators could be contributing to their mental illness by promoting an attachment to this second life over their first life.
I think the secret maker is wrong on all levels – because while our first and second lives are distinct and often separate, they are both real.
It’s Sunday, gonna go watch some football, eat some pizza, have some booze. Here is a LOTD post. Cute dress is from !go! this place has some seriously cute shit. My only very small complaint is that some of the mesh could be rigged a little better but I know how incredibly difficult rigging is for even the most experienced designers. The cuteness outweighs the rigging tho. (get it..outweigh har)

Trompe Loeil has released a home pub for FAMESHED this round and I had this huge spot left where my Christmas tree was, and well, HOME PUB! You understand right? I NEEDED it! Continue reading
I have made the Arcade Yard Sale rounds and I have to say, I’ve very nearly got everything I want. I’m not THAT needy, I don’t have to have them ALL of anything, and there are some rares that elude me. I won’t pay much more than pull price though – so you see, it’s tough for me to complete a set because so many people jack up the prices so high.
For instance, the chair for the amazing Apple Fall set. Continue reading
Trompe Loeil has released the perfect relaxation spot with the Kumotori Bath House. It has Adult and PG versions. I figured I’m an adult so this is PERFECT for me.
Unfortunately I can’t show you what those poses looked like because it’s too early in the day for vagina. Continue reading
Decoy Top from August Collabor88 paired with Yse skirt from Baistice for FaMESHed
I shot these pictures earlier this month, before Collabor88 closed and re-opened with the new September collection so many items are from the August Collabor88 session. You can look for them at the stores. I have had a hard time just starting this blog post and it will probably be short.
I kind of fell in love with the ISON Razzle pants and vest for Collabor88. They come separately so they can be mixed and matched. They come in six colors, black, white, gray, camel, green and blue, making them great foundation pieces for your wardrobe. I am a bit of pixel prude, so when I went to The Velvet last night, I added this lovely wrap from One Bad Pixel for a more discreet look.
However, daring fashionistas that don’t mind risking a little slip here and there, can war just the vest. Frankly both the One Bad Pixel wrap top and the Ison Razzle vest fit so well, i didn’t bother with the alpha layers.
The monthly events faMESHed and Collabor88 always come through with something wonderful For example, from faMESHed there is this gorgeous dress from NYU. The bodice is particularly lovely making its name “Bodice Dress” so appropriate.
