Remembrance of Poses Past

Missing Posemakers of Days PastI saw a great fashion spread featuring Dominique Tipper in 1843 Magazine a friend brought over because we share a love of The Expanse. All the pictures were composites of the same clothing in different poses, though very different from this one. They all had black backgrounds and vibrantly colored prints. Still, it did inspire me to shoot some pics for a couple composites. Back when my SL inventory was hyper-organized, I filled a couple pose stands by type of pose rather than by pose-maker. Sit and lie poses all organized together. I decided to drag them out and realize that most of the pose-makers in the stands have closed up shop for one reason or another. Among those of us who have blogged for a few years (nine years for It’s Only Fashion), who does not miss the excellent and puntastic poses from Long Awkward Pose or the flash of recognition when seeing a celebrity-inspired iconic pose from Striking Poses?

Missing Pacemakers of Days PastWhile remembering the old, I will also celebrate the new. These Twiggy pants are from Poppy, the new fashion collaboration that opened this month. My shoes are from Juju, new to me and can be found at Shoetopia. The come in a fancy, print version as well.

The hair is from equally new-to-me RunAway and at Hairology. My shirt is from Tres Blah, at Collabor88 and the top underneath is an applier from Luxuria–the texturing half of Poppy. The skin is alaskametro’s Chi released at Skin Fair which just closed up shop, meaning you can find it in the store or marketplace.

Struck Like An Arrow Right Through My Heart

Reflecting moments often come when we’re least engaged in our lives and just find ourselves in a state of just BEING.

It’s hard to find those moments,but lately I’ve been working on them and finding comfort thinking on my SLIFE and all the things that are good in it.  Continue reading

And bring your dollies three

“It's too cold outside for angels to fly.”

Blueberry / Show Time / Maitreya – Nel Shoe

Hey, hey, oh playmate,
Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree

Slide down my rain barrel
Into my cellar door
And we’ll be jolly friends
Forever more, more, more.

“It's too cold outside for angels to fly.”

Pizza – Nightspot [Red] Tailcoat and {Luxuria} Lia Bodysuit – Applier *kale green*

Where There Is Great Love, There Are Always Wishes

I’m one of the lucky ones, loved, beloved and full of love in return for the one in my life who keeps me going. I had a friend once, when I was a single girl, who used to say “I don’t know why you girls don’t just find one person to love and stop dating all these boys.”

As though it were that simple, to find the one.  Continue reading

Everything is fair in love, war, and fashion.

Everything is Fair in Love, War and Fashion. - Reiss Field

Distance lends discretion, so I am beginning my post with a full body shot instead of the usual three-quarter photo I usually use. My blouse is a bit sheer and revealing and so closer, more detailed photos are below the cut on behalf of those who might be taking a peek while at work. I am repurposing a lovely lingerie bodysuit from Luxuria because as Reiss Field once said, “Everything is fair in love, war, and fashion.”

Freshen It Up

It’s important to freshen up your avatar look from time to time. We switch out our hair willy nilly but sometimes we can forget how nice it can be to update some of the basics – like eyes.

If you haven’t ever tried Banana Banshee eyes, Rose has been around for a while making eyes so she knows what she’s doing. While she doesn’t just make eyes, that’s what I’m talking about today.

I’m trying out her Soul 2 eyes fatpack. She’s got a nice range of blues, from gentle icy blues to children of the corn bright if that’s your thing. She also features pretty greens, browns and even a red for you about to be possessed for Halloween Times. She also features black sclera versions for all you folks who like to role play or just rock a completely different kind of look. I’m wearing her ice blue and I really like it, it’s a pretty but subtle blue and looks very natural.  Continue reading
