Colors at The Arcade & Collabor88

“Color is a power which directly influences the soul.”

My mother was a believe in dressing to feel better. If you feel sick, wear a dress and fix your hair. If you feel blah, wear something bright. I had an annoying headache and felt so dreary yesterday, I knew I needed some brightness, so I put on the white-white-white high-waisted long-bottomed pants from Pixicats at Collabor88. I also added a top from HUCCI in lovely jewel tones and neutrals. Kandinsky once said, “Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” I don’t know if that is true, but I know it can give your mood a big pop.

I decided to introduce you to Toodles XXXIII. My brother has had a chihuahua for a pet for most of his adult life. Just one, always named Toodles. Toodles, ToodlesII, ToodlesIII. I am not sure what iteration of Toodles exists now, but I went for XXXIII to be sure I did not tread on any Toodles’ memory.

A Road Trip

“A relationship is like a road trip: You get bugs splattered on the windshield. By the time you see them, it’s too late, but you still keep going.”

“A relationship is like a road trip: You get bugs splattered on the windshield. By the time you see them, it’s too late, but you still keep going.”  

Welcome to Braggsville by T. Geronimo Johnson

I love this quote from the book I just finished reading, Welcome to Braggsville. It has the virtue of being funny and true. Like a road trip, you don’t always know the destination in a relationship, you surely do not know what you will encounter and a few bugs will get splattered on the way. And of course, you usually keep going, though maybe sometimes you should take the off-ramp.

Strange Shadows and Ominous Portents

An early studio day has me questioning whether I need more coffee or what. My shadows have been wonked since about 7 am, with my shadows having shadows.  I’m not sure why, but I have decided to call it art and roll with it. I can remember when it was the case of “some had shadows and some had none”. Well now I have more shadows than you.

LOOK ON ME.

Just kidding, I don’t know what that is but hey, it’s not the worst thing that ever happened. Continue reading

Sun Soaked

Pixel Gidge is exhausted from the sun she’s soaked up all day.  I’ve been struggling with a bikini top that worked for me, they were all just “off” no matter what body I was wearing, but this one I dug up from Luxe Paris – great for a big rack 🙂  . Unless you have a freakishly big rack, then I can’t help you.

I’ve got a new dresser to find space for, I’m struggling with the idea that it might actually be time to move house – but how can I leave when my view is SO AMAZING? No I might just have to reorganize inside, this house is designed for viewing amazing scenery which I have. Yes, that’s my plan. Reorganize.

But first you’re going to have to excuse me, I’ve got shower off. I’m dying of sweat.

Man in Florida

092114_001

Collabor88’s theme for the month is Miami Electric – featuring the electric tropical colors that bring to mind that sunny city. I have never been to Miami, so all I know about it is from the media. Those aerial shots in CSI Miami make it look like an architectural center of excellence – beautiful and pristine. Real Housewives made it seem less than perfect,let’s say but, of course, the strongest influence on my impression of Miami is the infamous Florida man. Let’s just say Florida man probably does not shop at Collabor88. Continue reading

I got 99 problems but hair ain’t one of them…

I made it, I finished the hair fair, it took a few intervals to get through but I did it and I have like WAY too many hairs, more than one gal needs really. But that’s okay right? I’ll use them more than once right? I’ll get dressed up and go places and show off my new hurr right? Ehh, probably not, but they make for great pics!

I noticed a lot of straight , side swooped hairs this year, which are lovely, but how many does one person need of that style? Maybe 5, or 6, I can’t remember. I seriously had to decline buying a few quality hairs simply because the store before them pretty much had the same style and I probably bought it.  Perhaps a few strands were different and set them apart but for the most part that super long, hair flowing down the front on one side and hair flowing down the back  on the other side seems to be the theme this year. Could have been worse, could have been mall bangs.

Collabor88 & The Arcade Make Me Happy

I have company on the way over to watch the finale of True Detective – so just pictures today!

0310_001

Well, I am back and the finale was amazing! So today I put together a jacket from Decoy with a black and white skirt from VN and some gorgeous shoes from The Secret Store.  The jacket is gorgeous and will go with lots of outfits – a great mix and match staple from Collabor88. I love the jacket but it will occasionally glitch at the elbows. A longer alpha would solve that, but then you would  have the hollow up the arm problem. An occasional glitch through is, I think, better than the hollow sleeve all the time.
