That’s How the Boy Gets the Girl in the Movies


I wore the Vivianne dress from Lassitude & Ennui (at Collabor88) when I DJ’ed at The Velvet’s Valentine’s Day party. It’s such a romantic dress with it’s froth of lace at the hem. One of my favorite songs I played for the party was “That’s How the Boy Gets the Girl in the Movies” by Emily West. I hope you will play the YouTube® visit. 

I heard it happens.
It’s never happened to me.

I stare by the window,
If he’s there, it’s only just a dream
Just a dream.

Birds in the sky will be singing the song.
The sun will be shining when his car pulls up.

Oh, I long for the day and the way it should be.
Expected temptations are waiting for me.

Cause that’s how the boy gets the girl in the movies.
Kisses that make her the star of the show.
He’ll buy you roses and make you feel pretty.
Hold the umbrella when he walks you home.

It’s Hollywood. It’s heaven.
It’s everything perfect above.
When a girl falls in love.

When a Picture Is Not Enough

There were a few dresses at Fashion For Life that really needed more than a picture. A thousand words might help, but I think in this case a video is better. These two dresses from Likka House are great fun costumes. They would justify planning your own circus party – Look at the carousel horses. When you are running out and about you can turn them off so you won’t lag. 

Ghee’s Gown of a Different Color and the Laced Up shoes are kind of crazy wonderful creations that reminds me of that old group, Not Possible In Real Life. Do you remember the group? I loved it and miss it quite a bit – it was a celebration of all that is special and unique about Second Life – just as these outfits are. 

Forgive my poor videography, my computer is old and tired and when I do a video it crawls in a corner, curls into a fetal position and whimpers.

I Enjoy Being a Ghoul


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.

The Best News of the Season


For me, the best news of the season is the re-opening of Luxuria by Roslin Petion. While Roslin did not leave SL, she closed down and stopped creating for a time to focus on a very busy first life. Her name has been behind many of the best brands in Second Life®, Fleur, 5th & Oxford, Savile Row and Luxuria. I am excited to see her reemerge as a designer with the renaissance of Luxuria, her lingerie brand. Roslin has a love affair with lingerie that is shown in her exacting detail and flawless execution. This Cherie set consists of separate pieces, the bra, panties, and garters in a treasure chest’s richness of jewel tones. With ten colors in all, there’s all you ever really need, but then need is not the operative world with women and luxurious lingerie, is it?

The Phone Rings At 7 Am…

I had this blog post planned. A couple of Arcade items, an item from Acid Lily, some Collabor88 – a well rounded event post. I’d shot it over a couple of days, dorking around with lighting, realizing after ten shots I was on medium resolution (this explained a lot).

Then my real life phone rang.  The cellphone in my pocket rang – and I looked at it with dread. No one calls you with good news at 7am. No one. It was Cajsa and I knew why she was calling.

You probably know it too, our friend Giulia, SL’s Squinternet Larnia had died. Cajsa was calling me to let me know, so that I didn’t read it on the internet that a friend had died. Continue reading

Virtually Propositioned

I was having a relaxing evening in my own home, trying to decide where to go this evening, and at my vanity table enjoying new releases from cheLLe and FLAIR for COSMETICS FAIR which opens tomorrow.

New mascara, new eyeshadow and nail polish – surely this means it’s going to be a fine evening. New makeup is always a good omen. Continue reading

E is for Eellogofusciouhipoppokunurious (Thanks, Arora!)


I noticed when doing my credits for this post that I have two “E” items which had me asking plurk for more. . The first is this cute leather mini from E! (see the exclamation point) which is Eclectic Apparel, the work of Eclectic Wingtips. It comes with a hud that allows you to change the metal findings from gold to silver to black and back. You also can change the upper “belt/sash” portion with several color and print options. It’s sassy and short and just the perfect choice for the new ruffled top from La Penderie de Nicole, which also comes with options, including black with several choices in contrast ruffle lining.  Continue reading
