It’s typical, that life hands me something awesome and then gives me not awesome along side it. I’m not sure if that’s karma I’m burning off of simply the run of things but just as soon as I’m ecstatic about a temp spot to live and shoot pics, all my pics today show up with more grid lines than ever in them.
See how I cropped that vertical one above? I’m pretending it’s intentional. Go with it. Continue reading →
I have decided to break my own boredom and start doing occasional single item posts, rather than full outfits, as the mood strikes me.
I’m going to break these into Love Lists of three items in a specific category.
They’ll be items that strike my fancy at whatever moment in time I decide to shoot, within whatever category I decide to make sweet love to at that time. Review items or items that I bought, makes no difference, the only thing that matters is – I do love them. 🙂
Today’s Love List is…..Stuff for you legs.
I’m starting off with panty hose YES REAL PANTY HOSE from Shop Toshy. Continue reading →
It all started with the hair. This damned hair that Cajsa has been flaunting from Exile…….I had to have it. As Hannibal Lector taught us – WHAT do we Covet? That which we see every day. So eventually I broke down and bought it because OMG it’s big and floofy and FANTASTIC. Continue reading →
I’m so fortunate that my best friend has exquisite taste and style. What that means is that I never get drug along on shopping trips where I go “Ummm, DO NOT WANT/KTHANXBY.” Instead of going “Oooooh, Oh DO WANT! DO WANT!”
Both Modern Gypsy and Exile are places like that for me. I wouldn’t have wandered in without Cajsa and now I’m addicted to their goodness. This short casual dress is called Desertmoon but at first I thought it said “dessert moon” and it put me in mind of dessert cafes of my 20s. Continue reading →
Oh it starts out INNOCENTLY enough. I think to myself…..’Self, you know where we haven’t been in a long time? Callie Cline. We should just pop over and see what is what.’ So then it just so happens that I arrive shortly after Callie has marked down everything in her store that is green to 99L.
And it starts. The flurry of mad buying because, since I haven’t been in so long – it’s all NEW to me…….and I’m in this shopping frenzy the likes of which would put off a school of hungry sharks.
This coat dress just screams Edith Head to me. If you don’t know who she is….well look her up. You’ll see I’m right. The dress includes a system skirt so you can drop the prim for a sleeker look. It has has several layers on the top (thoughtful thank you!) for my options if you are mixing and matching. Continue reading →
Our window for wearing heavy, overly ornate cocktail dresses and gowns is closing – at least as far as the RL season goes. Soon we’ll be shedding tafettas, heavy silks and velvets for cotton damasks and chiffon.
This year, to save me from tears – I’ll give it someone special.
First off, let this be a lesson to all of us, don’t pick up guys on Christmas. That’s just tacky. And I think we all know that “heart” is a metaphor – so now, let’s all agree together. No picking up guys on Christmas. It only ends in heartache and breathy songs of heartbreak. Continue reading →
Always a bridesmaid, never a bride. The same old story. But when I got this lovely gift from Pixeldolls I WANTED to be swept away for a romantic night of dancing under the starts. I own enough jewerly from RICX to attend the opera every day for a month and never wear the same piece more than twice….I don’t see too m any people blogging RICX, but I like their stuff. And yes their jewelry has a bling OFF option so no you don’t HAVE to be a blingtard to shop there. They offer a lot of jewels and traditional settings. Continue reading →
