I’m out early this morning checking out events and doing a bit of shopping. These t hings aren’t going to shop themselves, I tell you.
I pulled out an old clutch from HANDVERK and I forgot I’ve got a few awesome bags from them, they’re going to be getting more use. This is why I don’t throw things out. THIS BAG IS SO CUTE. I wonder if they are still around? I need to find out!
I’m in love with my new hair stylist exXess her blondes are amazing. If you’re a blonde girl and don’t go shopping there, run don’t walk. I took Luna this weekend and she was impressed. It’s not a new brand but for me it was one of those WOW WHEN DID THIS BRAND BECOME AMAZING moments.
I was looking for a quote for my pictures and came across “Keep your face always toward the sunshine and shadows will fall behind you.” It was attributed to Walt Whitman which struck me as bizarre. It does not sound the least bit like Whitman. Whitman wrote things like “Give me the splendid silent sun, with all his beams full-dazzling!” The internet is good for many things, but it’s been a disaster to those who want proper attribution for quotes. Thankfully there are those who are combatting error like The Quote Investigator.
The Arcade has arrived and with June comes sunshine and flowers, not just outdoors, but even on the wall.
I shot these pictures in the small attic bedroom at the top of Scarlet Creative’s romantic Daisy Weathered House at The Arcade. With ivy and moss on the walls and roofs, delicate floral wallpaper and so many gables it would make Nathaniel Hawthorne jealous, this house is everything. Continue reading →
I accept the fact that I’m more than a bit of a Second Life PRUDE. That’s ok. It’s my Second Life and I can be who I want. I respect the fact that you too can be whatever you want. But, I think that when our fantasy existences cross one another, a certain amount of decorum, and well – manners, should be expected.
Case in point.
I got dressed – as pictured, and ventured out because a good friend had new releases that were not to be missed. I actually had several stops on my shopping list, but this first one was a much anticipated release -a must have. Continue reading →
Events, they’re everywhere. The trick to them is doing what my grandmother would’ve called separating the wheat from the chaff. While I might throw in my vote on the side of “There are too many events” what that really means is – there are too many crap events.
But that’s a generalization and those are never completely accurate now are they? Continue reading →
I don’t normally like to post things so close to closing time, but I really enjoyed my outfit today, so alas, I am going to share it anyway.
Collabor88 closes it’s doors at 11:59pm slt tonight, so you only have a little time left to go shopping. The new round starts on Sunday.
I bought one pair of these shoes originally, then found out you can mix and match through the huds. Sadly at the time I did not find the fatpack, and after buying 5 pairs I’m super tempted to ask to pay the difference and get the fatpack, they really are too much fun to play with.

My computer is back with a new hard drive, so it’s kind of like starting with a blank slate. It is certainly the cleanest clean install of Second Life I have done as it was the first application I installed. So there I was in-world again after my short hiatus and ready to Collabor88. But first, I had to log in as the LoveDonnaFlora avatar and transfer all the funds to Squinternet after the Love Donna Flora event. All in all, the event raised $12,619.45 to help support Squinternet’s struggle with cancer. There may be some more coming in after the event, but it is likely to be small and will, of course, be transferred to Squint regularly.
Speaking of Donna Flora, the dress I am wearing is a perfect Collabor88tion of MiaMai’s Monica Outlander and Donna Flora’s Squinternet. Again, Monica executed Squint’s vision, marrying her skills and sensibilities with Squint’s exuberant love of vintage. The result is a dress that seems to have a third collabor88tor in the mix, Gustav Klimt. The blend of fabrics were surely chosen by Squint after consulting with Klimt. And who could be a better collabor88tor for the 1920s. It’s not well known, but Klimt designed some dresses with his lover Emilie Flöge, the couturier. His dresses hung from the shoulders, without a defined and corseted waist and were very bohemian in their aesthetic. Continue reading →
