Layering

140919_003

 

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.

Casual Fridays: Stripes of Various Sorts

I confess that my Friday night outfit started with the shoes, and everything else had to fall in line above them. Blacks and greys won out, spun together regardless of pattern, which works just fine. The new shoes from L.Warwick are out for LeaMetallique as well as sassy new hair from ploom from district 5 – perfect for casual looks this weekend. Continue reading

So I Got a Dog

I can hear my  mother now. “If Sasy and Whimsy jumped off a bridge would you jump off one too?” Well obviously. Have you met them? Well they got little dogs at The Chapter Four from Alchemy so I went over and picked one up. I might just be dogsitting this one though. He has a giant head and he’s a bed hog.

PLUS – he woke me up early. I’m serious man, this dog was just standing on me when I woke up. Talkin’ bout “Take me outside. Blah blah blah.” Indeed, dog. Indeed. Continue reading

Maitreya Comes To Collabor88

One of the things that makes Collabor88 a hallmark event each month is that the releases from the core group of designers are certain to be high quality, must have items. It’s a combination of talent, reputation and love of what they do that they put into every piece they release. Events get tired, and worn out. Collabor88 roars back in every month and it’s always the same chatter “I can’t get in.” “Someone leave Collabor88″ “It’s been two days and I can’t get in”. This isn’t because of the cache of simply going. It’s because there are a core group of designers releasing great things that add beauty and style to our second lives, head to house.

Glam-O-Ween

Vogue_006

Halloween is such a fun holiday. We get to play dress-up and be a kid again. Of course we all have our favorite way of dressing up for the holiday – and for me, it’s glam, of course. The perfect Glam-O-Ween dress is from VoguE – where Halloween has resulted in three special outfits and 2 Halloween hats, one with a skeletal hand and this spider web hat.

Growing up in state where mosquitoes can gather so thickly they look like a smudge cloud on the horizon, I am fond of spiders and their hard and constant mosquito-eating efforts. There’s nothing quite so beautiful as a spider web damp with morning dew when struck by sunlight. So yes, a spider-web dress is going to be gorgeous and this one from VoguE is a stunner.

The Phone Rings At 7 Am…

I had this blog post planned. A couple of Arcade items, an item from Acid Lily, some Collabor88 – a well rounded event post. I’d shot it over a couple of days, dorking around with lighting, realizing after ten shots I was on medium resolution (this explained a lot).

Then my real life phone rang.  The cellphone in my pocket rang – and I looked at it with dread. No one calls you with good news at 7am. No one. It was Cajsa and I knew why she was calling.

You probably know it too, our friend Giulia, SL’s Squinternet Larnia had died. Cajsa was calling me to let me know, so that I didn’t read it on the internet that a friend had died. Continue reading

Little Greenie, I Will Always Be Your Fool

There was an AREA 51 themed party this weekend at The Garden to celebrate this month’s theme, and I couldn’t decide if I wanted to be a poodle skirt diner girl or an alien. I dithered and went back and forth. The best part was, I was putting it all together from fun new and old items in my inventory – proof positive that you don’t have to go out and bankrupt yourself to participate in fun theme events.

I Have Some Boots You’re Going To Need

So I have NEWS! If you remember the FLUX events, the Mardi Gras, the Taxidermia event, then you might be excited to learn that FLUX is returning with a new monthly THEMED event. What’s fun about FLUX is that it isn’t a big discount room full of crap you don’t need, rather it’s a themed event where invited creators are releasing lovely items based on that month’s concept.

The first concept in the hopper is AMERICANA and I’ve got a sneak peak at the EASY RIDER boots from Memento Mori by FLUX creator GHOST MANNEQUIN. You’ll have to wait till July but it’s shaping up to be an AWESOME event. Continue reading
