I do not pay a lot of attention to the Hot 100 as most of the songs recently seem to have Idol-itis – overproduced and full of melisma. However, someone on plurk mentioned having All About that Bass stuck in her head so I was curious and listened to it. I was surprised by its retro doo woo sound and was happy that such a positive body image song was leading the charts. Pop music popularity is dominated by the tweens, so the song’s popularity makes me optimistic about “kids today.”
Pixel Gidge has luxurious, beautiful mornings every day. I think this is because my own RL mornings are the opposite of hers. As I stumble through the chaotic, wrinkled messy world that is RL I juxtapose SL Gidge’s morning when I blog – sitting it opposite my own.
The more peaceful and lovely her morning, make that the opposite for me. Continue reading
Today I am wearing a versatile dress from Tee*fy. I love that it has options for the bodice. You
can wear the dress with the spaghetti straps alone or, as I did, add the optional harness. There are also lace cap sleeves you can add that slide right under the straps for a touch of romance. It has a fitted bodice with a mesh midriff. Christian Siriano says mesh is “done” but not if it looks as good as this. It is a great take on the Hotel Spoopy theme for October’s Collabor88.
Somnia released from silly tee shirts for Lazy Sunday and I have to confess this is normally how RL Gidge sits around blogging, wearing nothing but a tee shirt. I couldn’t resist.
I’m trying out a new skin from Belleza and taking their VENUS body on another spin. Continue reading
The Old Astronomer is not a very good poem, but it does end well. Stars were on my mind thanks to the adorable Lootia shirts from Somnia for My Slink Obsession. Sanura Snowpaw of Somnia may have my head for how I am wearing it though. The shirts are actually long-sleeved, but I chose to wear them on my Slink Physique and then opted to not apply the sleeves for a tank top instead. A surprise benefit to wearing appliers – or an unintended consequence if you don’t like it, I suppose.
I wore the top with a grey denim skirt from Mai Bilavio who is also a creator for Vive9. While I was a My Slink Obsession, I also found some great nails from Licked & Painted and Adore & Abhor. I tag all my pictures on Flickr with the store names. If it’s more than one word, I have to put quotes around the store name. That makes me wish for more one word store names.
Events are bringing the love of shoes for all of us SLINK wearing girls and I thought I’d share some of my recent favorites.
First up is INGENUE at COLLABOR88. Available in a 12 beautiful colors these shoes compliment fun summer looks in dresses or slacks. They would look great with cocktail wear as well. Continue reading
…I don’t want to be right.
No one reaches into my head quite like Tres Blah’s ARCADE ITEMS to describe what I’d like to have exist in all of my lives. Calm, beautiful pieces with style and taste, that reflect the sort of gorgeous things I would choose surround myself with.
Thus, in my Second LIfe, I do. Continue reading
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
I don’t like my toast too done. I prefer to be able to shove my thumb directly through it and wear it like a ring. Doesn’t everyone? Continue reading
When Bluebeard married his last wife, he told her, “Don’t go into the courtyard of SLINK WEST. All the vendors for My Slink Obsession are set up, and I’m not giving you shopping money until tomorrow.” He gave her a key to courtyard and said “I’m trusting you with this key. It opens the gate to the courtyard and if you go early, we’ll have a very serious problem.”
Well, how can a fashionista resist early admission to ANYTHING? She can’t. So of course she goes, opens the gate to the courtyard to cam into all of the boxes covering the goodies for tomorrow’s event. But upon entering the area, she finds it strewn withe bodies of all of his previous wives, all of whom had the same idea and met a terrible fate for disobeying. She drops the key into a pool of blood – only to find the blood won’t wash off!
Who gives gifts that absorb blood? GROSS! Continue reading
