I always like to bust up sets and mix and match because it shows that the clothing people make in Second Life is more versatile than we think. For that reason, even though the Irina cropped sweater I am wearing from The Secret Store comes with a beautiful skirt that coordinates with it, I chose to wear a different skirt to show it can be done. Of course, you know and I know it can be done, but a reminder is useful. Continue reading
The theme for Collabor88 this month is StoryTime and the creations showcased are a rich display of folkloric traditions and influences. There is a lot of embroidery, a lot of beautiful colors and rich traditional fabrics. Sissy Pessoa ran with the idea into a more modern direction with this gown and capelet. It has all the traditional flower forms, but the dress itself is quite modern and made even more so in the sheer version.
The weekend is here and I’m confused how it even arrived so quickly. The week flew by with things to do, places to shop and people to see.
I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Continue reading
This sign, a riff on the Borg’s mantra,made me laugh. I always just point out the Borg dies in the end. But I laugh because where I grew up, we competed against Fertile in sports and other competitions. More amusingly, Fertile happens to be just about 25 miles from Climax, another town we competed against. When you’re in high school, such things are hilarious and even to this day, pranksters add distance to Fertile signs to the “You are Entering Climax” sign and vice versa. By the way, whoever ordered “You are entering Climax” is my hero. That sign is gone now, replaced by the much less amusing “Climax Pop. 300” sign. Not that we weren’t without our own embarrassing names. A few miles out of town, there used to be a glorious road sign, “Bullshit Valley, Next Left” That was the name of the valley. That was the sign. When I was home this summer, I saw it has been “cleaned up” and now reads, BS Valley. I was disappointed. I did not live in Bullshit Valley, alas, and my dad only took that left hand turn every few years just because it was a pretty route, though it was gravel not tar. The road to Bullshit Valley is paved now. I am sure there’s a metaphor there somewhere.
New Year New Me continues to resonate thanks to Collabor88 this month. Today I’m going to stretch and bend my mesh to some Yoga thanks to this amazingly cute bag from LaGyo. I’m going to be comfy in these top and bottom set from House of Hucci that’s sexy and functional for some serious inner peace.
What I need to do though is burrow a tunnel over to the studio. Even though it’s just a short land bridge across the islands to where Cajsa built our work out gym, it’s gonna be a cold run.
Two VERY cute items to pick up this month at Collabor88 for you gym rats are – first this bracelet also from LaGyo – a close up.
And this necklace from Yummy.
And now I’m out to make my mesh healthier. Wish me luck!

I read a bit recently of a thread where newer bloggers were talking about how discouraged they were at getting turned down. I know exactly how that is. It’s discouraging when your name doesn’t show up on the list, when you think you’re good enough – or KNOW you’re good enough for XYZ and don’t get chosen.
It happens to ALL of us. Continue reading
