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 hate when the man goes away to work. It leaves the house so empty and quiet.
Fortunately, it gives me the chance to dress up and hide in his man-cave for when he returns.
This lingerie was from a new store (to me at least). I found Carrie’s Lingerie in the websearch and was surprised that I hadn’t come across it before. The store is HUGE. I was greeted by a lovely CSR who was more than happy to answer my questions.
I’m usually wary of new stores because I don’t know what quality the product is going to be. The vendor image was quite clear, so I gave this a chance and I’m glad that I did.
The wild child lingerie is so cute on my avatar. I love the texturing and colour. My only bug bear is the lace, which could have done to be a little more delicate. The 3d effect wasn’t amazing, but it didn’t let the outfit down too badly.
Another slight issue was a lack of layer options. Each layer option is one item of the outfit. This could be limiting if I wanted to wear parts of the outfit and not others.
If you’re looking for a new store to check out I would suggest definitely hitting up Carrie’s. This is a creator who is definitely going to be huge someday and I can’t wait to see more lingerie hitting their range.
It was early morning on the runway for Gidge, as she has lots of news from the MY ATTIC event to show off to you today. My shoes are from Essenze for SLINK Feet – Medium heel. THe shorty little dress is from FAUN. Continue reading →
And I’m delivering. Pumpkin Pie it is thanks to WHAT NEXT.
Storms are rolling in here on Juicy Island and I’m enjoying the cool breezes as I wind down my day. MY ATTIC starts tomorrow with amazing new things, all of which are only 95L and an amazing bargain. Continue reading →
Ghee has all sorts of knits and woolens for layering in rich jewel tones and foundation neutrals that make for great cold-weather fashion. I particularly love this tunic with a long cowl sweater. Underneath I am wearing ghee’s thermals that come in great colors and which I would recommend as investment purchases except for one big hurdle – they have no Slink Physique appliers which is becoming a deal breaker for things like tights, leggings and layering sweaters.
Cajsa’s impeccable taste and Second Life’s lack of effective inventory searching lead to me getting this dress. There is nothing about that which I find to be a problem. In fact, I feel like I’ve totally scored. Continue reading →
When I put on this dress, Half Measures, from Dead Dollz for Penumbra’s Autumn/Winter Fashion Week, I immediately thought of Audrey Hepburn. It has a similar front neckline to the little black dress by Givenchy for Breakfast at Tiffany’s. While the wide circle skirt is a complete opposite to the long, slim pencil skirt of that iconic gown, it is still something she would have worn.
Audrey Hepburn remains one of the great fashion icons achieving a kind of immortality with her legacy – not just in film but in fashion and even more importantly, with her activism. She was far more than a pretty face, but was a wise woman who worked tirelessly on behalf of refugees as Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, a passionate commitment that may have risen out of her experiences as a teenager in World War II working as a courier for the resistance while one stepbrother went underground and the other was in a labor camp.
Don’t you hate it when someone shows you a satire site and you don’t get it? Alicia showed me this site yesterday and I was bufuddled. Who is Courtney? Why don’t I know who she is? I mean, I get it now, but at first I thought I had missed some whole internet phenom until she pointed out it was satire.
That being said. All I can think about now is fall. I had to drag out my pumpkin pie makings set from ARCADE which btw is STILL open AND I bet you can get in, I really do. If you were holding out, now’s the time. With this handy little set you can prove that you love fall more than Courtney or Alicia! Continue reading →
