I first discovered Izzie’s through one of those moments of serendipity that seem so much a part of Second Life®. It was back in 2009, I think, or 2008 and I was desperately searching for some studded tights. I spent hours going from store to store to store to store, most of them stores that left me awestruck with their awfulness thanks to the sort of things that come up in search when you used search terms like stud or studded. I asked in the Fashion Bloggers group and was sent hither and yon, but no luck. No one had what I wanted. I decided to be Scarlett and “think about it tomorrow” and logged out for the night.

Izzie’s Studded Tights still going strong after more than four years. by Cajsa Lilliehook

When I returned the next day, I got a new item notice, probably via FashCon since that was when FashCon was still the it group, and it was from Izzie’s announcing studded tights. I also was helpfully sent a dozen copies of the notice from bloggers who remembered my frustration the night before. It was one of those wonderful moments. I felt like Izzie Button, the Izzie’s creator, had made them just for me, though of course, it was incredibly unlikely that she turned out several pairs of stockings, boxed and made vendor pics for them all overnight. Still, that is how it felt. Since then, I have no idea how often I have worn those tights. I still have them. They are wonderful and indestructible. They will be in my inventory when Linden Labs turns out the lights for the last time sometime in the far, far distant future.

It’s Only Fashion: What was your first day in Second Life like? What made you stick it out through the learning curve?

Izzie Button: My first day in Second Life I spent reading freebie blogs and SL forums and finding out how everything works, followed by freebie shopping and trying to improve my avatar appearance. I was fascinated by the fact that everything I bought and saw was created by SL users themselves and I was wondering if I could do that too. I went to gaming places and “earned” my first lindens with gambling and I used that money to finance upload costs of my textures I needed to create my first clothing items.

A Weekend At Granny’s

Cajsa suggested I come over to Granny’s cottage for the weekend and with such a picturesque landscape to relax in, how could I resist?

Cajsa put me in charge of dinner while she went to to nap. That’s probably a mistake, because while I love to bake, I can’t cook for a damn. But I think pie and cookies counts as dinner right? We’re on vacation ! How can that be wrong? Continue reading

LET ME OUT – OOOPS I found This In Drafts ! OOOPS !

Rumpelstiltskin terrified me as a child. The fate of a girl sealed by her absurd braggart father, and a selfish, mean spirited elf/sprite/demon creature. Helpless against fate, that seemed like such a cruel fate to me. I never liked the story.

At the ENCHANTMENT Stamp Card event this round you can live the romance and pretties of the story without actually fearing for your life. As with each round, once you purchase an item from one of the participating merchants at their mainstore, you get a stamp card that you can take around and while wearing it – you touch the ENCHANTMENT vendor at each participating vendor. Once you get to the end of them, you can go to the prize room to unlock a special prize from one of the creators.

If you buy more than one item, you get more than one stamp card and that equals more than one prize !

It’s such a cool event, and even if you get locked in a tower and forced to spin straw into gold, chances are good you’ll sort a way out of it and end up with the prince. Chances are VERY good.

The Fitted Mesh Of My Dreams

It’s the season for cocktail dresses and great big jewels, so you can imagine my joy to see that Sysy’s has released perfect cocktail dresses for the season, and they’re only 95L at My Attic during the event.  I remember the first time I put on fitted mesh when it wasn’t compatible with my mesh body and the absolute RAGE I felt that I couldn’t wear them together. Seriously, what’s the point of a perfect world where you can’t be perfect?  Continue reading

Time for Decorating

I’ve been adding some touches around the house, and so I thought I’d share what I’ve been up to on a Saturday morning. Alouette has released a lovely table with fall decor and a clock, perfect for an entry way or hall needing a little touch.

I also put a coffee station right in my foyer, no more pesky walking to the kitchen to obtain coffee. Walking is for peasants I tell you !

Now that I’ve got a hot beverage, I guess it’s time to sort out how to play WoW again since the WoD launch. It’s hard, all these video game things to sort out.

I’ll figure it out eventually. Perhaps shortly after I have this macaron?

Or tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.

Casual Friday in The Cold

The cold chill this week sent me running for my sweaters in all lives. This fuzzy amazing sweater from Ison is always going to sit on the top of my sweater shelf, it’s so gorgeously textured, I have to love it.  My jeans from SOMNIA that have appliers for my Physique body are a perfect fit with big sweaters like this. Mixing up applier clothes with mesh has become one of my new favorite things.  Continue reading

COLLABOR88 Is Almost Here

COLLABOR88 is only a day away, it’s so close you can hear the clicking of stilettos in the distance as the shoppers warm up for the swarm. It’s going to be a big one, it’s their birthday and that means one thing, LOTS of awesome.

I’m previewing a new ‘do from Magika and I strayed into her fun hombres for some color on this Friday-Eve.

Make your day beautiful girls!

And Then I Fell Into an Eaters Coma

I don’t think I’ve actually ever personally experienced the FOOD COMA (or EATERS COMA) that some people get, especially on holidays like Thanksgiving. Eating that much simply makes me nauseous.

Luckily, in SL I was able to experience Eaters Coma for the first time with no ill effects, as it’s a quirky named hair store I’m trying out for the first time. I’ve been aware of them for some time, but maybe just my fear of the RL food coma kept me away. /slaps head. OH WHAT A FOOL I HAVE BEEN! HAIR FAIR 2014 is such a great place to try out new to you creators, every year I fall in love with someone new. Continue reading

Ison Will Never Be Royal. Or WILL THEY…

Ison released three LORDE themed ‘dos at Hair Fair 2014. I like all three.  Possibly because I wore my hair like the one above in RL for about five years.  I was trying on new things from Collabor88 and this is what happens when a blogger has on too many things she likes. She just ends up wearing them all.  If I hadn’t worn the shirt then my boobies would be hitting you in the face first thing Sunday Morning. NO ONE WANTS THAT. Continue reading
