The Pixel Gidge at Six

A Night Out with Sasy, Whimsy, and Anessa

I had just wrapped up my FLF shopping when Sasy insisted I come out and be festive for a while. Her suggestion for festive was to start at Bewbapalooza or however it’s spelled. It’s a sale event (I dunno if discounted) for the wearers of the mesh boobs. It’s also carnival themed and Whimsy played the strong man game and won me a popsicle. YAY POPSICLE.

Anessa Stine joined us and fondled her boobs as we wandered around looking at the items.

It was somewhere about that time, that Sasy said “It’s your REZ DAY!”

OMG. It was my rez day and I didn’t even know it. SL Old Age kicks in.

Dream and Believe

We popped over to the Men’s Department sale next and while Whimsy oooo’d over kilts (and the lack of underwear beneath I think) I grabbed the free gift from Handverk – a red scale clutch. There is probably some humor in the fact that the gift at the Men’s Department sale is for women. Or, men who carry a red scale murse. Continue reading

Take Off

Hitting The Road


Hitting the road to head out of town is both an exciting adventure and a hassle. I love to travel, I hate to leave. Generally there is nothing for it but to plunge ahead and be pretty. I find that gets me through most things. Continue reading

My Winter Retreat

The Living Area

I have a pet peeve about all home and garden shows and magazine spreads. When I look at the pictures I am always wondering WHERE is there stuff? Where are the toys and the books? Where is their tv? I guess thats why my SL homes are always cluttered and crowded, I’m trying to make it my home. Continue reading

No Muss, No Fuss


When I saw this fabulous off-the-shoulder sweater from erratic for FaMESHed this month, I immediately thought of these gorgeous pants from Cashmere that I found at Vintage Fair. Sure enough, they are a great match and perfect for a no muss, no fuss Saturday.

It’s a Wrap


I wonder if Diane von Fursternberg knew, back in 1972 when she introduced her wrap dress, that it would completely conquer the world. This Kennedy dress from Rebel Hope shows us why. It’s a model of simplicity, free of embellishments. Its lines are clean and spare with no added darts and pleats for structure, its shape formed by its easy embrace of the body. Its color gives it a dash of the casual while its fluidity and side wrapped bodice add a touch of cleavage and sex appeal. It may have come into being in 1972, but its organic shape made it an instant classic. It’s one of the fabulous mesh pieces you can find at this month’s FaMESHed showcase.

Autumn is the time for layers and layers of knits and wools and cuddling up warm and cozy or running through the woods kicking the leaves up into the air. The secret to comfort in the fall is layering so that you can take something off while in a heated room or in the heat of the sun and put it back on when the sun hides behind a cloud. In this outfit, I layered a cozy thermal knit top from Sakide with a short wool jacket from VoguE. I have that top in every color and only wish there were more colors of it – one of my favorite wardrobe basic of all time. The jacket is part of an outfit from Vogue that comes with pants, gloves, top, the works, but there’s no reason not to pull out the pieces to mix and match with something else. I blogged the jacket about a year ago with the gloves. It’s one of those striking pieces that work well with others.

Projectors Made Easy as 123

BAIASTICE @ Vintage Fair

Since Gidge and I have been playing with projectors lately, a few people have checked out the tutorials and asked a few questions about how to do it. So Gidge got the great idea of setting up a pose box with the projector and light leak texture built right in along with some poses situated in the sweet spot where the projectors come together. Thus the Status Dual Projector Box 1.0 was born. It makes taking fun pictures as easy as 123. But first, let’s take a look at this gorgeous top and skirt from Baiastice for Vintage Fair. It comes in several colors and you can put the same color top and skirt together to look more like a dress, but I love hot pink and lime – they are just the perfect expression of summer. I love the easy style of the top and skirt with the great details that make it special, like the inset belt and the soft pleating at the hem of the skirt.

Donna Flora Does Mesh for Vintage Fair

Vintage Fair - Cajsa Lilliehook

There has been a Donna Flora shortage on the grid this year while the store’s designer/creator Squinternet Larnia has been going through cancer treatment and working on rebuilding her strength, but Vintage Fair has inspired her to come back with a bang – releasing three mesh dresses in several options. This dress is Elena and it comes in eight different colors/textures.

Vintage Fair - Donna Flora

One of the great things about Donna Flora’s designs is that she doesn’t just recolor, she retextures with different prints, creating different moods.
