I stopped by Groenland today for a short visit. Most of the mass of Greenland is ice, but not on this sim. I guess it’s in one of the areas where the ice has been melting. It reminded me of “Rotten Ice” an excellent article in Harpers by Gretel Ehrlich. It seemed appropriate during the cold snap affecting much of America which prompted the popular-vote-losing President to show he does not know the difference between climate and weather. Sadly, far too many politicians don’t know the difference or they pretend not to know. Sometimes it’s hard to believe they are that ignorant, then I listen to Louis Gohmert and realize there’s no such thing as not too ignorant.
My friend Sophia said “I need someone to commit to blogging every day with me to help motivate me.” I personally need that too because I’ve gotten so lazy, lounging about looking pretty in the same clothes for days – LIKE A PEASANT. So I answered her back and told her it’s ON. We decided we’re calling it BLOGTOBER and it’s an opportunity to refresh our brains, re-energize our passion and get back to what we love.
I challenged her to go shop at a mainstore, NOT an event post, for our first day of commitment and so here I am, slathered in Sn@tch. Continue reading
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.
New pajamas from Sn@tch and a cute bed loaded with poses for you or friends are just some of the fun items available at MY ATTIC this round. The bed is called the SLEEPOVER bed and so if you’ve got a couple of girlfriends over, it’s perfect for some fun pictures. I also love that it’s got several textures available – you can mix up your decor options. Continue reading
Ritu Kumar, who is one of India’s most successful fashion designers, said “When women wear denim it (the derriere) must look elegant. It’s the second thing every woman looks at in the mirror, but it’s the first thing she cares about. She does that half twirl, her back arched and her head craned around. If the jeans are right, the experience is transforming, like putting on a magic cloak.” And that’s the truth!
Since it’s “all about that bass”, Blueberry should be your go-to store for jeans, yoga pants, bootie shorts, body-con skirts and dresses and everything about that bass.
If you’ve ever wondered why it’s “all about that bass” just look at the shape of that guitar. It’s bringing booty back and so is Blueberry. Not that booty ever left.
In was chilly, so I added a high-fashion leather jacket from Azuchi for Uber. It comes in three colors, though I settled on black after trying each color on twenty times. Fall fashion is all about layering so I wore a Full knit bodysuit from Sn@tch, using Slink appliers. There is a turtleneck collar attachment to make it look its best.
I’ve seen belts as a skirt, but never belts as a top. I’m not even sure what to call this, it sort of looks like a corset as well. I am wearing it as is, but I could see this with a shirt underneath, maybe something a pirate would wear, or some sort of warrior maiden. This is the new offering from Plastik, to be released at the mainstore. There are 5 galactic colourations, which have to be my favs of the series. There is also a large assortment of other colours and patterns, so it is worth a look, if you want a beltstraptopcorsetthingy.
Our Lady of the Bugs was the first hairdo I purchased from The Stringer Mausoleum, long ago for Halloween 2008. Her work is instantly recognizable because it is wild and exuberantly creative, full of wit and a dollop of kookiness. It entertains as well as adorns.
It’s Only Fashion: What’s the craziest thing you ever did in Second Life®? Most exciting? Silliest? Is there a story you can share that captures your Second Life experience?
Helena Stringer: The Craziest Thing I have ever done in SL® would probably be taking the reigns of Media Manager for a rather large event, 2 weeks before it was to open. I learned a lot, and was rather successful at it. There was over 200 designers in that event, and I managed to get each of them covered at least 2 times, by a team of 60 bloggers. I did this while being in 13 Events/Hunts/Rounds myself for my own store as well as running the Main Site for the Event, which had a tem and daily postings. Would I do it again? Probably, I am crazy like that, haha. Continue reading
