Taxi!

150422_003

 

I stopped by XIN, a sim I found in the Destination Guide. It’s a seedy urban sim,  just what I was looking for to complement the punk out fit from Emery for Collabor88.  The outfit features a sleeveless tank dress and a jean jacket with knit sleeves.

Fashion For Change

150411_003

Fashion For Change opened yesterday – a fundraising event to raise money for Womankind Worldwide, an organization working to challenge discrimination against women around the world and to increase women’s participation and voice in the policies that affect their lives. Fashion For Change runs from April 11th through the 25th and several of my favorite stores are participating including Azul. This dress is an exclusive for Fashion For Change and was created with options to change it up. Here I am wearing it without the overskirt.

Collabor88 Bop

With apologies to The Ramones.

They’re shopping in a straight line,
They’re bouncing off a full sim,
the fashionistas are losing their minds.
Collabor88 Bop.

Hey ho, let’s go! hey ho, let’s go!
Hey ho, let’s go! hey ho, let’s go!

They’re piling on the mesh bits,
Trying to to make it all fit,
Pretty in Punk’s a big hit.
Collabor88 Bop.

Hey ho, let’s go
Shoot’em in the back now
What they want, I don’t know
They’re all dressed up and ready to go

I’ve Got Sunshine On a Cloudy Day

Snapshot_008

Don’t you love it when the sun is bright and streams in through the windows creating an interplay of light and shadow in your home? I know cats love it as they shift to follow the light. I am more a shade person and will shift from the sunlight into the shade, but I still love to see the beams of light moving across my home.

My dress is a super-feminine lace dress from Gizza called Cara. It is very demure and feminine from the front, though there is a bit of a surprise from the back as you shall see.

I am relaxing in the living room from my new cottage by dust bunny that I picked up at The Arcade. Through the windows you can see the greenhouse as well. The side tables and the pitcher of baby’s breath and the book on the far table are all from the dust bunny collection at The Arcade. Scarlet Creative’s Amelie sofa seems made for this sweet little cake of a house. I changed the pictures in the frames from the DRD frames I got at December’s Arcade. I thought it might be fun to put in old family photos, so the pictures are of my grandmother, great grandfather, great-great-great grandfather, a family reunion in 1901 and other old family photos.

The Owls Have It

Emery released pencil skirts and sweaters at Collabor88 this month. Both are great separates for mixing and matching, but the pencil skirts in particular are investment pieces. They are beautifully crafted as you can see in the picture below where I am sitting and you can see that the interior is lined so there is no alpha messing up the picture.  Continue reading

In Living Color

150310_003

How many of us have predominantly black, grey, and white clothing? How many homes have all white walls and neutrals with a “pop” of accent color? We don’t have achromatopsia, so why do we live like we do? Why are neutrals considered more tasteful than active, vibrant colors? 

Did you know that those classic white statues from ancient Rome and Greece were not originally white? They were painted and full of bright gaudy color. I wonder sometimes if the centuries of elevating their pristine monochromatic grandeur are why we are so shy with color in our lives today.

Twinkling

It’s cold and rainy with possible ice incoming in RL so the only recipe to solve that sort of crisis is obviously to dress up in SL. I’m wearing a new release from Sacha’s designs that is so twinkly and glittery my video card can’t show it to you.  It reminds me of what it would look like if taffeta and sequins had a baby. I know that’s crazy, they aren’t even both fabrics! What do they have in common?  Continue reading

Three Eyed Cat Soup

The original title of this post was “If you go out in the woods today…” because it was going through my head while I was getting dressed. Then I went looking around on Honour McMillan’s blog for a good place to shoot and EXACTLY the place I wanted was found in a blog post by the same name. KISMET! But I figured, she just used that title, I know we’ve used it, I’ve got to come up with something new.

I realized I’m clearly headed to Grandmother’s in this outfit. Traditionally I’m taking her a basket of food as she’s sick. So obviously, in this version of the tale, Grandmother is going to be having three eyed cat soup. Right? Yum yum. Continue reading
