What Did I Forget ?

I’m the queen of bad intersections, hair stuck through arms, floating necklaces and various other faux pas. I’m a veteran enough blogger to snicker when someone else does it yet find the ego to go oh eff it I don’t care when I do.

This is pretty much true 100% of the time. I will decide that it’s a  more accurate representation of your SL experience as intersections and weird stuff DOES happy when you aren’t stuck in a pose for a shoot. So, that’s a Gidge truth.

However, I had this great night last night reconnecting with an old friend and then Amatorum was having a party so I slapped on something new QUICKLY and ran over there, with a nagging feeling the entire time that I was MISSING something. What am I missing? Continue reading

Welcome To Enigma County Where The Ice Is Cold And…

With Honour McMillan either on break or gone, as she likes, I’m at a loss for where to go shoot when I’m in a fun mood. However, Gidge 2016 is an adventurous girl and she’s going to hit the mean streets without a compass if necessary to find adventure and fun.

Funny true story (funny “ugh Gidge you don’t pay attention” vs. “funny oh my what a pickle”) is that when the Belleza various bodies came out I originally was in VENUS a lot but then decided I wanted to be a curvy girl now and again and in my memory it was ISIS that was the curviest girl.

Out of the need for variety I put on Freya and omg this girl is thick. Continue reading

For Arts Sake

It’s been a hard working fashiony night for this girl. It’s not easy standing around looking pensive, or sultry, or pithy, or whatever it is I’m trying to appear. This is serious business.  Continue reading

What’s Wrong With Being Confident?

I’m pretty excited as we’re heading right into the holiday season full steam ahead.  In the US we have Thanksgiving tomorrow which is in fact THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS no matter what the scrooges say. It’s that most wonderful time of the year of good cheer and family and friends and WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUND.

I like it, can you tell? Continue reading

If the jeans are right…

If the jeans are right, the experience is transforming, like putting on a magic cloak.
Ritu Kumar, who is one of India’s most successful fashion designers, said “When women wear denim it (the derriere) must look elegant. It’s the second thing every woman looks at in the mirror, but it’s the first thing she cares about. She does that half twirl, her back arched and her head craned around. If the jeans are right, the experience is transforming, like putting on a magic cloak.” And that’s the truth!

Since it’s “all about that bass”, Blueberry should be your go-to store for jeans, yoga pants, bootie shorts, body-con skirts and dresses and everything about that bass.

If you’ve ever wondered why it’s “all about that bass” just look at the shape of that guitar. It’s bringing booty back and so is Blueberry. Not that booty ever left.

If the jeans are right, the experience is transforming, like putting on a magic cloak.
In was chilly, so I added a high-fashion leather jacket from Azuchi for Uber. It comes in three colors, though I settled on black after trying each color on twenty times. Fall fashion is all about layering so I wore a Full knit bodysuit from Sn@tch, using Slink appliers. There is a turtleneck collar attachment to make it look its best.

Just One Look

I’m just stretching before settling into my morning routine of blog surfing and enjoying some free time.  Tuesday is always such an annoying morning for me, it’s always the morning I think “Oh I’ll play a little WoW” before I recall that it’s doing maintenance.  I guess we covet what we don’t have then, eh?

Well I’m trying to decide what to do with myself otherwise, and slipped into this cute new dress ensemble from Sascha’s designs, she’s made it in three variations, on solid, one print (I am wearing) and one sparkly – PERFECT for the holidays.

I’m going to be lazy and share her vendor ads for it.

The Sea of Love

Mami Jewell of AZUL probably designs more gowns than anyone for the Miss SL competitions. The Linette gown was designed for Miss Indonesia Mio Linette and it comes in twelve standard colors and two limited edition colors. When I walked in the gown the ebb and flow of the feathers at the bottom made me think of the gracefully flowing fins of a beta fish, so for fun I headed to Borinquin Zyn’s underwater tableau where there are underwater animations. Below the cut, you can see a video I made and see what I mean about this lovely gown.

That shirt

150812_011

That shirt! You know the one I mean. We all have one. The shirt we have owned since forever, that repeated washings and years of wear have softened the fabric to a perfect level of comfort. It is the adult equivalent of a blankie. A shirt that ends up in every load of laundry because after a hard day, we put it on the minute we get home, as though putting on a hug. We have forgotten to turn it inside out a few hundred times and the fabric is pilling and snags are visible here and there, but we don’t care. It is our favorite shirt and we will keep it until it falls apart on our body.

Whatever sizing and substance the fabric once held is gone. It conforms to our body like a second skin, a cozy, comfy, second skin that says “You’re good enough. You’re smart enough. And doggone it, people like you.” We have that shirt in our first lives, but now we can have it in our second as well, thanks to Vinyl’s Little Toast (sukoshitosuto) and any doubts whether this distress and well-worn look was not deliberate can be dispelled with a look at some of the other options on the texture hud.

Yup, that’s deliberate.

Hair Fair Designers — MissAllSunday Lemon

I have been wearing Wasabi Pills since 2008, though the first year I was wearing Wasabi Pills skin and then later, when she began wearing hair, I started wearing her hair, too. Between Gidge and me, there are nearly 200 posts with Wasabi Pills hair. I do not know if I was one of the first to blog her items, but I do remember that when I first blogged her skin, she sent me a warm and friendly note. I also remember how when mesh hit the grid, she hit the ground running as if all that time before mesh was just preparation for mesh when she really got into creating a new level.

Zippity Doo Dah

Sissy Pessoa of Baiastice has a gorgeous zip dress called Damie at Uber this month. It comes in 10 color combinations, all with gold zippers and a gold belt. She also has a coordinating clutch on sale at Uber, but I left it in the car while i took a walk on the beach. 🙂

I remembered LiValle’s gorgeous Classico zipper shoes and dug out a pair to wear with the dress. Zippers R Us.
