I loved the picture from my logout screen and decided to use it instead of the picture I took.
It is serendipitous that the same week that PXL Creations releases a Seven Sins Gacha skin that Buckcherry released their new album Confessions featuring the Seven Sins. The album was released today, though I listened to a preview after reading about it in Rolling Stone earlier this week. The idea of putting the skins and the album songs together was irresistible. So, for the Greed skin from PXL, here’s the Greed song from Buckcherry.
I’ve lost my place in line. I don’t wanna cause trouble,
But I’m here to get mine.
So if you could, would you kindly move?
I’ll only ask you one time, cause I’m gonna get through.
I don’t need anybody else,
I’m not afraid to take a risk, I don’t practice good health.
I don’t pray and I don’t rely
On the lawmakers telling me what’s a crime.
The Greed skin has a bold gold lip and eye shadow.
I don’t care who I have to trample,
I don’t care, cause I want it bad.
The consequences ain’t no fucking matter,
Greed is the answer, everyone’s going mad.
Taking everything you can,
Stealing right from your hand,
When you’re gonna make a stand?
Cause greed will drive you mad.
There’s eight full days more of Culture Shock and now that the initial mad rush has subsided, it’s a good time for the more leisurely shopping that comes with fewer people. Also with fewer visitors, the script gate is no more, so you can attend and wear your wizard hud, though you probably would have a better shopping trip without it.
One of the places you must stop by is R.Icielli where there’s jumpsuits and tops and shorts in a ridiculous number of colors and prints. It’s a rainbow and then a rainbow factory on top of it. I hopped over to a lovely sim to snap a few pics. You really have to see to believe the incredible variety.
The Magician’s Assistant is not only a fabulous book by Ann Patchett, but an occupation you can explore in Second Life. Most magician’s assistants wear showgirl costumes with bodysuits, sequins and fishnets, but I went for a more practical and elegant solution with a gorgeous, low-cut jumpsuit from R.icielli for Culture Shock. Part of the role of a good magician’s assistant is to draw the eye, and with this much cleavage, the eyes will be drawn. Continue reading →
I let my music-loving cat choose the song this morning. After all, he woke me up at 5:40 AM when he turned on James Brown's "Don't Tell A Lie" which is a great song, though not a great 5:40 AM song. I usually turn the Ipod's speaker off now after a 4:30 Flogging Molly wake-up song, but I forgot last night. While I was getting ready to post this, he was pushing fast forward through the playlists looking for something he liked. I decided to let him decide and go with whatever song he finally let play for more than two bars. I actually love his choice - a cover of Elton John's great song by Bettye LaVette who completely made it her own.
I can’t light up no more of your darkness. All of my pictures seem to fade to black and white. Oh, I’ve grown so tired and time is standing still before me. It froze up right here on the ladder of my life.
I have been frantically updating the blogroll. You see it over there on the right? It’s so much shorter now because I have shifted the links to Blogging Second Life, a companion site to It’s Only Fashion. This will make our blog load more quickly while still making sure all the links are available if you need them. It also allows me to provide more useful information, such as the name behind the blog, the store, and marketplace links. If I knew how to integrate two themes on one site, I would have kept it right here, but that’s above my pay grade. I hope you check it out and add missing information in the comments there.
While working on this project, more than once I came upon a store blog that required an in-world visit to complete the information. One such was MMGrafitti’s store blog. It’s possible all the information is on his blog, but it’s in Japanese and even Google Translate cannot answer every question. I am happy I checked it out, though, because it was such a fun home and decor store that I had to shoot some pictures there. Seriously, when it’s time to shoot some photos in the snow, I am definitely taking pictures at the snow cabin. It has footprints in the snow on the porch!!!
The weather has turned colder in real life and that has me reaching for warmth in Second Life. How silly is that? Still, any excuse to wear this marvelous fur from Baiastice. Sissy Pessoa has release two new jackets in four different furs. This is the short black fur and while she may have squeezed and skinned some pixels, no animals were harmed. I am wearing it over a magnificent blue python dress from R.icielli released for Modavia Fashion Week. I love the blue color and its overall look and don’t mind the seams not lining up as it makes it seem like python skin rather than a python-print fabric. The dress comes with shoes and earrings and that magnificent belt.
The final day of Modavia Fashion Week opened with the Dutch design house CIA from Ayla Strading in a joint presentation with Joy Laperriere of SHI. I am new to CIA and am thrilled with the introduction. I love the bright, saturated colors and definitely plan to pick up at least that black top with the floral embroidery. Continue reading →
I had such a hard time finding a place to shoot photo pics last night. I ran around all over the place but I must have been bringing the Three Bears along with me because this sim was too hot and that sim was too cold and this sim was too soft and that sim was too hard. I seldom get in that nothing suits me mood and hate it because it really is me, not the sims that is out of sorts. I finally ended up at Mysterious Wave which has something for every bear with its many different exhibits.
On the clothing front, though, I was pleased with everything. I started the outfit out with the gauntlets. And therein lies a story. The other day I was browsing through some clothing and fashion sites and drooling over real life clothes and posted a plurkload of “please make these in SL” clothing porn. Imagine my delight when shortly after Tracy Rubble of Nzuri dropped me off one of items I had been lusting after – black gauntlets with dainty bows at the wrist. I love the combination of edgy goth gauntlets with the feminine detail of the bows. So thanks so much Tracy. I love my gauntlets. And guess what? She names them Cajsa Gauntlets. /me swoons!

There’s a reason Alirium is one of the most visited sim in Second Life®. It’s beautiful and at the moment, it’s almost an all-weather sim with its F*R*O*S*T exhibition of beautiful sim-etry. Knowing I would bop from summer to winter in a short second, I dressed for all weather wandering in jeans from Studio Sidhe for Culture Shock layered with a summery top from R.icielli and a jacket from Ivalde.
The walk down the dozens of stairs to the snow fields is lovely, especially on such a bright, sunny day.
Annah Whitfield is one of my favorite pose makers. Her poses are great for showing off clothes and shooting pics for the blog as they have little or no distortion and are carefully calibrated to avoid breaks and intersections. They are investment poses because they will be used again and again and again. These poses are available right now at the StoRin booth at the Pose Fair. Have you been there yet? No? Well, get moving!!!
