Color!

Chatkare Culture Shock

I love the bold, color-blocking in Appolonia Criss’s new dress called City Chic. She takes a very mod style and updates it with a blouson top and short, very modern sleeves.

I decided to note the military-inspird sleeves by adding the gauntlets from Nzuri, though most gauntlets don’t have adorable bows at the wrist.

This brilliant and bold color got me looking for a brilliant and bold place to shoot and that led me to the Labyrinth of Absurdity.

I stopped by a new-to-me sim called Africa, complete with a Kilimanjaro inspired mountain and lots of safari animals. That gorgeous sweater is from E! - Eclectic Apparel

Hello, lovelies :)

How is everyone this fine Saturday evening? Well, in this part of the world (Southern Italy) it’s evening, while i’m writing, a snowy evening.

The Back to Black event will open its gates in a few hours and i would like to show you some more amazing stuff you will find there, but, first of all, have a look at this skin and this hair, my latest purchases:

What's Black and White and Re(a)d All Over?

Jan08_008

I like red, white and black – or shades of gray and red. When I put this outfit together, for some reason that childhood riddle popped into my head. If for some reason, you don’t know the answer, it’s a newspaper. I wonder if the internet will make that riddle obsolete? Anyway, I am black and white and red all over with this outfit made with pieces from Peqe’s summer and Christmas collection and a sweater from Alexohol. The sweater is lovely and I love the quirky irregularity of the buttons that remind me of when I have sewn on buttons. The top is from Peqe’s Christmas release and I love it with the flared pants from Summer.

1963 – The Year that Gave Us Doctor Who

Oct12_021b

1963 was a seminal year in American life.  It was the year of the Kennedy Assassination – a moment like 9/11 where everyone alive then can tell you what they were doing at the moment they learned of it. It was also the year that brought us Doctor Who and the release of the first Beatles album.  1963 will be celebrated in all its glory tonight at theRock per Annum event at the Velvet. Exploring the development of rock from 1960 to 2012, each week focuses on the music of just one year. It’s been a fascinating process so far because the music for each year is so much fuller and more varied than one expects.

My Interest is Piqued

sep28_002

Peqe has a marvelous mini-collection at Modavia Fashion Week full of classic, a gray rainbow of modern silhouettes in black, white and gray. I was distracted, though, when the emcee pronounced Peqe as in peck, where my inner ear had always though it would be pronounced like peek or pique. Thankfully, I don’t have to know how to pronounce it to wear it.  One of the design details that show that Inex Hax, the designer is better than most doesn’t show in my pictures. With the bold triangle at the front, most would either repeat the triangle at the back or leave the back plain, instead she made a broad, bold vertical stripe. It’s a small thing, but it shows that she doesn’t settle for the ordinary and banal.

Make It Quick

aug23_008

I am going to make this quick because I have friends on their way over shortly. Here’s another fabulous item from the Platinum Hunt – a super-sexy dress from Magoa. While we all have seen dresses with a similar open-work style, it’s really cool to see it in a print.

Bandana Day

bandana day_006

One of the great elements of Hair Fair is that it asks for more participation from us than just shopping, blogging or building. Each year, it asks all of us to take off our hair and don a bandana in solidarity with those who are going through cancer treatment and losing their hair. Hair is very precious to us. Most of us when asked to describe ourselves, start with our hair color Our hairstyles are our signs to the world, communicating our interests, tastes and values. When people lose their hair, that signifier that said they are chic, or sporty, or rebellious is lost and replaced with a new signifier – Cancer Patient.
Bandana Day 2011
That is why Wigs For Kids is such a critical support to children who are going through cancer treatment. Children are already struggling to establish their identity, to individuate – and when cancer treatment robs them of such a critical signifier as hair, it’s important to restore that as best we can.
