Fire Down Below

I told my good friend Sasy that I was bored and needed to zip up what I was doing and sharing here in blogland. She’s working on being more informative, sharing things and she wants to help improve your SL.

I have no such noble aspirations. I once wore a prim vagina on the outside of my pants for a week because I didn’t know how to cam. You’re on your own girls, I’m just too silly to be a great sharer of knowledge. Plus the stuff I learn in trial by fire is always the stuff I become GOOD at. You can ask Sasy that too, as I’m always asking her stuff such as “Why don’t my hands work right?” and she’ll reply without even looking at which version I’m wearing “Probably because you didn’t pick up the update from six months ago…..”

It’s good to have friends who love you despite the fact that you’re a flibbertygibbet. Continue reading

House Crisis Arises

I popped over to visit with Sasy and Mavi this morning and to behold the amazing new Lelutka build and I told them I was having a crisis. A HOUSE CRISIS. Why is it that just about every time I get my house sorted someone makes a new one and then I want that one?

I DON’T WANT TO SET UP MY HOUSE AGAIN.

Yet, I want this new house to be my house. It’s a trial I tell you, having too many options. Continue reading

A Mind of Their Own

Don't worry about the smallest size that light can be, it will chase away the darkness

The damn lights have a mind of their own. I picked them up at Collabor88, the newest release from Maxi Gossamer and they just insist on going everywhere. They’re all in a tangle and I need to untangle them before I can decorate.

Of course, if you’re decorating the outside of your house, you need a smoking hot coat like this one from Mutresse. It comes with a color-change HUD that is stuffed with 20 colors that you can use to customize the turtleneck sweater, the zips, the collar, the lapel, the pockets and the jacket body and bodice. Such control gives you exactly what you want. It, too, is at Collabor88.

Subtlety

“Remembering. Forgetting. I'm not sure which is worse.”

I like subtle shifts in tone. As much as I love rich saturated colors, I also love the neutral tans, beiges, and ecrus. The ALT Cadet Dress comes with a color change HUD that lets me choose bold colors or subtle ones. I gravitated toward the subtle this time.

Prints and Colors

Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life

Don’t Mix Prints! That was once the conventional rule of fashion, but again and again, people have flouted the rule with great success. It’s tricky and can look atrocious, but folks who can mix prints well are among the most exciting fashion designers and icons. Gia Seorn of Gizza knows how to mix prints. The collection of five Tracy Strapless dresses recently released by Gizza is a masterclass in mixing prints.

Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life

Thalia Heckroth™ released a fun new jacket that I added to dress. I love sleeves, so often add a jacket over strapless tops and dresses. The details are perfect and happily fits comfortably over a dress. My pet peeve with mesh jackets is that they too often can only be worn with applied textures or with a set piece made just for that particular jacket. I love to find jackets that I can wear with other brands.

The Things You Learn

I was out for a stroll when I discovered a little problem with my rings. IEQED made these gorgeous rings for mesh hands and she was thoughtful enough to include a little note so you knew which hands depending on your body etc. I read the card, saw that for SLINK it required ELEGANT hands and so hey I already had those on – huzzah!

Except, they didn’t fit. In fact, one ring was floating in space and the rest weren’t centered on my fingers. I’ve worn IEQED rings many times, I’ve never had this problem. I read the notecard again. SLINK ELEGANT. I messaged Cajsa, she said she had them and would check, she says “They fit fine.” Now I’m perplexed. Cajsa is wearing her SLINK elegant hands and they fit, and I’m wearing mine and they don’t fit and OMG WHAT IS HAPPENING?????? Continue reading

Can We Talk About Free AOs ? Part One

For reasons I cannot properly explain I was compelled to try out some various AOs from Marketplace the other day. I decided that given the fact that decent AOs can be expensive AF that maybe, maybe I’d find a gem or two on MP. You never know.

For today’s experiment I’m not using vids – which I should have but RL is making it impossible ATM so I think I will experiment with shooting short vids of the AOs next time around and if so I’ll include this one.

I’m starting out with THIS ONE – MIA PRIMA.

Let’s start with things that are good: Continue reading
