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.
I generally don’t wear clothing that is super revealing, but I just loved this Spiky Fur top from Gizza – even with all the side boob and boy, oh boy, is there side boob. I had to wear it a couple sizes smaller than usual to keep it from revealing more than just the side. But isn’t it fun? and sexy? and irresistible? I had to wear it. It comes in black and white and I am sure you will be seeing the black one sooner or later. It comes in two pieces, the tank which is kept from blowing in the wind by a thin tie along the sides – so if you fit it right, it will be secure. The second piece is the fabulously wild shoulder spikes. I imagine you could wear the black spies with the white top and vice versa for even more flexibility.
I woke up at 4:30 this morning. Why? Because my cat decided it was time for me to wake up and he knows exactly how to make that happen. He sits right on my chest with his paws on my throat and starts rubbing his nose on my nose. Of course, it’s the cutting off my air supply, not the cat kisses that wake me up. It works every time.
So I took some pictures hanging out at my house over by Gidge’s place. I was still tired so I laid down on the couch. Sideways, though, so Oscar could not cut off the air supply again.
Now he lays on the floor looking all innocent, “Who me?” but I know very well what he is capable of.
Deathly Silence from Gizza is ghoulishly delightful, curvalicious and macabre, slinky and scary, spooky and sexy and perfect for those of us who enjoy being a ghoul.
I’m a ghoul, and by me that’s only great!
I am proud that my silhouette is curvy,
That I walk with a sweet and ghoulish gait
With my hips kind of swivelly and swervy.
Gizza has released a gorgeous lace dress perfect for summer days. I am wearing without the higher waisted full skirt flexis and the rose at the waist, opting for a more casual look using the mesh skirt and flexi leg prime. I like this closer fitting, dropped waist, simpler, sleeker and chic.
The lovely braided hair is from Iren. I picked it up at Hair Fair last month.
Before mesh, folks often took the top from one dress and the skirt from another and made something new. In my view, one of the unfortunate down sides of mesh is the prevalence of one piece outfits that can not used for parts, so to speak. So, I was so pleased to see the Romantic Rendezvous outfit from Gizza came in parts that I could use to mix and match.
As you can see from the vendor ad, it’s actually a bodysuit with a ruffled peplum. Produced with a system top, mesh shorts and prim ruffles, it gives the user the change to play. This was particularly great because I was going to DJ some old classic jazz and wanted something more “me”.
Well, my computer went wonky this morning. Each photo I shot crashed my entire laptop and turned my screen to a jumbled mess of multi colored pixels, so it is off for repairs. Fast repairs, I hope.
Meanwhile, I got a couple snaps of this outfit that features a gorgeous sleeveless top with gorgeous collar points on the collar. The folder comes with your choice of gold or silver collar points (or tips). I chose silver because the belt on the pants is silver, too. Collar points are more common in menswear, in particular Western style clothing. At one time no self-respecting country singer would be found without collar points.
Giz Seom goes big. Look at the size of that print and of those sleeves. That is the hallmark of a designer confident and unafraid to take risks. I love the floral chintz fabric even though in careless hands it could look like a sofa cushion or the remnants of curtains ripped from the windows to make a gown to impress a certain dashing gentleman. But these are not careless hands, so it looks bold, fresh and ready to conquer.
I love Rock and Roll almost as much as Joan Jett does. I am feeling particularly rock and roll today in this rockin’ outfit from Gizza with a boost from Baistice and MiaMai. Gizza’s Anarchy outfit includes sleeveless mesh tees that can be worn for a bit more coverage and a leather biker cap. It’s a hot rock outfit, with glam elements such as the quilted leather skirt and the gold chain belt. I wanted to add to the glam, though, so I added a jacket from Baiastice full of gold studs. It comes in several colors and I was tempted to go for black, but decided I like the use of silver with gold.
I am slightly addicted to pose props, particularly pose sets that come complete with the background, props and poses all in one gorgeous picture frame of goodness. That’s why I look forward the the photo boxes that Whimsy Winx releases for My Addict each time around. I had a lot of fun with the Bright Lights box, particularly after pulling out my own bright lights or projectors.
