Clean Install! Clean Install! Clean Install!

Fashion is only the attempt to realize art in living forms and social intercourse _ Sir Francis Bacon

Why do I procrastinate about doing a clean install? I know that when I crash just by turning or camming or razzing an item, it is time for a clean install, but I delay and try to muddle along, bring my draw distance down to 32 and crashing and getting fed up and closing out of SL for days. I put this outfit on last Sunday and only finally got around to shooting it – AFTER I did a clean install. It’s not like it that hard even.

I know why, though. I am always afraid the new version won’t work and the old version will be gone, lost forever. See my rant on that at “Linden Lab, Don’t Feel My Pain.”

I have also been decorating the beautiful Daylily Cottage from Scarlet Creative for Collabor88. Crashing when I rez things made it a slow process. I really should have done that clean install sooner.

Oh Yes!

Fashion is what you're offered four times a year by designers. And #style is what you choose - Lauren Hutton

There is so much to enjoy at Collabor88, but I have to admit that Emery is always one of my faves. I just know the quality will be peerless and the separates will work perfectly together as this jacket and dress does.

The Things You Learn

I was out for a stroll when I discovered a little problem with my rings. IEQED made these gorgeous rings for mesh hands and she was thoughtful enough to include a little note so you knew which hands depending on your body etc. I read the card, saw that for SLINK it required ELEGANT hands and so hey I already had those on – huzzah!

Except, they didn’t fit. In fact, one ring was floating in space and the rest weren’t centered on my fingers. I’ve worn IEQED rings many times, I’ve never had this problem. I read the notecard again. SLINK ELEGANT. I messaged Cajsa, she said she had them and would check, she says “They fit fine.” Now I’m perplexed. Cajsa is wearing her SLINK elegant hands and they fit, and I’m wearing mine and they don’t fit and OMG WHAT IS HAPPENING?????? Continue reading

Days End Days Begin

My days begin and end the same way, in my bedroom shucking off my clothes or putting on my clothes, looking for comfort or fashion or something in between.

Chocolat Atelier had some adorable lingerie appliers at Epiphany so I had to go get them this past weekend. I always like their machine because they include top or bottom together so hey, adorable lingerie – WIN. I got the pink and white so even better. I don’t care if it’s not the rare. Continue reading

It was cold when I got dressed

"I have always believed that fashion was not made only to make women more beautiful, but also to reassure them, give them confidence." YSL

Does the weather in your first life influence how you dress in Second Life®? It sure does for me. And I know that’s crazy, but it still does. However, I dressed in the chilly pre-dawn when it as 45° and now it’s 79° and I am melting. Why does a jacket on my avatar make me feel warmer in my first life? How silly is that?

I really wanted to wear this Edwardian Jacket from The Annex, though because of the cold I opted for a different approach than the ruffled hot pants that are designed to go with it. Besides, I wanted to show you how flexible it is.

I Am Ridiculous

My wants and needs are simple. A unicorn and some friends to walk along with me while I shop at events. Sure, I’ll bitch about the lag, but I’ll also be a huge part of the problem and pretend like it isn’t my fault.

THAT’S HOW I ROLL. Continue reading

Going Green in Blue

And then the light came in

Collabor88 celebrates spring by going green. A Tough of Green is the theme this month, but you know those sneaky designers, they always go above and beyond and add all sorts of glorious colors for us. This top from The Secret Store comes in umpteen colors, almost as many as the pants from Addams.

And then the light came in

And if you don’t know how many umpteen is, there’s no hope for you.
