Catching Up

Snapshot

I shot these pics a few days ago wearing an outfit featuring items from last month’s Collabor88. Don’t despair, you can now find them in the store. The top, leggings and boots are all from Tres Blah. They come with a puffy jacket, too, but I left that off. Growing up in a place where it’s really cold, I have never understood those puffy jackets with no sleeves as anything more than an extra lining if your coat is not warm enough.

Vintage Is Cool or I Saw My First Flasher at the Vintage Store

121020_001

I have always like vintage clothing, particular that from the 40s and 50s when clothing was structured and fitted with sophisticated glamour the aesthetic goal designers had in mind. The Vintage and Cool event currently going on seems made for me. People were coming out of the austerity of the Thirties and the World War and the expanding economy and growing middle class allowed for a real explosion of fashion. This lovely dress from AVALE fits firmly in that tradition.

Petit Chat at Fashion Week

140914_003

Trinity Yazimoto of Petit Chat is doing something intriguing with her textiles in her Fashion Week collection. She is texturing her clothing with fabrics created from Second Life® photos that she took. In Sweet Mnemosyne, the outfit I am wearing, she using a picture of a woman in a giant bird cage in a field of flowers. I am excited to see someone using Second Life to create clothing textures as it is something new that I have not seen before.

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye

0808_003

I know Gidge blogged this dress from Fission a couple weeks ago. I had already put it on and styled it before I saw her blog post and I have not had the energy to change clothes. I do plan to change clothes sometime today. It’s been two weeks and even pixel clothing can get stale.

Sometimes life can change “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye” and nothing is the same after that. Two weeks ago, that happened to my sister when she learned she had breast cancer. She made me promise not to freak out or worry, so I tried, but I did not succeed. When we all lost my brother to cancer; it was easier. I always assumed he would get cancer from chain smoking all his life and that’s what happened. But my sister does not smoke, does not drink except for a glass of wine now and then and, as a nutritionist herself, has always favored a healthy diet and exercise at a local gym. In essence, she did all the right things and still got got dealt the cancer card.

Fashion For Life Comes to an End

jun20 b_002

Fashion For Life closes in  just three short hours from now and it is a bittersweet moment for me. I am relieved to have made it to the end without major disasters and dramas. Sure, there were glitches and hiccups and moments of anxiety – par for the course for any event involving more than 200 people.  As a species, we come with glitches attached. I am going to miss running the 10 sim circuit from sim to sim to sim to do the daily restarts. I was asked not to restart them all at once, so I figured a run from one end of a sim to the other, following the path, would take me about the right amount of time between each restart. I always did run astray at Perambulate though, tempted off the track by the skate park. Anyway, it has been a wonderful project, raising thousands of dollars for the critical work of the American Cancer Society as it leads global efforts to prevent, treat and cure cancer.

One of the Champions – the large donors whose co-sponsorship of the sims allows all event proceeds to go to Relay For Life – was Mon Cheri of “falsies” fame. Her eyelashes are favorites of people across the grid and even Gidge who has a love-hate relationship with attached lashes likes them. She made several exclusives for Fashion For Life including this adorable summer dress Sachi – which she released in several color combinations.

I Found Klimpt at Fashion For Life

jun20a_002

 

I could not resist this Marakesh gown from Sabra Style at Fashion For Life, it immediately called to mind one of my favorite artists – Gustav Klimpt. That’s his Birch Trees in the background, but it’s the gold and brown bugle beads in an art deco pattern than made me think so much of his work .  Continue reading

Back In Business and Ain’t It Grand

mar13_006

Putting on the suit from ISON for Collabor88 this month, the wonderful song performed by Eartha Kitt came to mind. I tried to find it on YouTube for you, but it was not there. However, I found this beautiful interview with Eartha on love and compromise reminding me again what an amazing and vital woman she was. Even her speaking voice sounds like music.

Yesterday it seemed the world was about to end, didn’t it?
Looked as though it woudln’t last out the year.
Yesterday disaster waited around the bend.
Well, my friend. Spring is here.

Back in business, and ain’t it grand?
Let the good times roll.
Yesterday things were out of hand.
Now they’re under control.

Back to LEA29

0131_005

I headed back to LEA29 to see the completed art exhibit by FreeWee Ling before it disappears. You should go quickly. Set your graphics to high with the shadows turned to Sun, Moon & Projectors – as most of the exhibit is an exploration of projectors and the light and shadows they cast.

While I focused on the black and white elements, there is a lot of color in the installation – particularly from light projectors.

Christmas Countdown

Christmas is a week away. I’m excited, I’ve wrapped all the gifts. The stocking were hung on the chimney with care. Cookies have been made and mostly eaten. Christmas Eve party dress has been chosen and I’m ready to have the eats and the drinks. My avatar has been equally as busy. I’ve made my sim Serenity Gardens decked out with Holiday Cheer and my wardrobe has been festive as well. Included in those festivities is this gorgeous Aspen winter coat from {Social Vintage}. It’s my first item from this store but it’s sure to not be the last.

This new angelic skin I’m wearing is from Kooqla. I’ve been wearing Kooqla for a while now and I love to see that it’s becoming a big success. Everyone seems to really love this latest release and you can see why. The detail on these hand painted skins is divine. They truly are unique.
