Saint Patricks Day Does NOT Have To Be Tacky

posted by Gidge Uriza

Ziezo, the elegant ballgown recently released by Sascha’s Designs is a beautiful example of the basic truth that the wearing o’ the green can be elegant.  I enjoy a fun tacky party as much as the next girl, but if you events calendar features more dressy soirees – there is hope!

This gown is available in a rainbow of deep hued jewel tones but the green is super elegant and totally holiday appropriate.

I’m ready. Who has my green beer? (I didn’t say to dismiss EVERYTHING that was tacky)

The birthday of friend and designer Polaire Aeghin of PRELUDE was an excuse to break out this shimmery confection of a gown from Victoria V that I picked up during the grand opening of the SXY2nd sim.  Yeah I know, your friend is a creator so who do you wear to their private event?

Wearing a Wedding Dress For No Reason

posted by Gidge Uriza

Soooo, you know what is really fun?

Buying and wearing a wedding dress for no reason. Okay this might not be technically and officially a WEDDING DRESS -or maybe it is. It wasn’t labeled as such. But I was in a daffy mood, rolling around THE DECK – Sasy Scarboroughs beautiful beach sim. I popped into Tori-Wear and was just all girly mooshy about this big white dress.

So I bought it. Continue reading

Let Me School You:An SL Bug PSA

See that picture above? Now really look at it. Really look at it. Do you see what is wrong? No? How about now?

Nice Uber Modern Gloves?

Nice Uber Modern Gloves?

Sooo, what’s up with these gloves? They’re a little, whacky.

My initial thought was “hmmm weird gloves” but I really like Sascha the designer and thought well, she’s doing something wonky with gloves. Whatever I’ll go with it.

Then, after seeing my original post she was horrified, and let me know this dress does NOT have gloves. Seems I’d been hit by an SL bug, but Sascha had the fix. Continue reading

When I grow up..

If you ever said “When I grow up I want to be a princess” have I got a dress for you. While walking the boots at Relay For Life I came upon DeGroot Innovations and saw this and went “ooh” and then “ohh la la” and then “ooh” again. Yes, this is the dress of childhood princess dreams and grownup fantasies.

Date Night Pretty

posted by Gidge Uriza

When I was still little enough to play with Barbie’s, THE Barbie to have the year I was about 10 was SUPERSTAR BARBIE. Swathed in pink with ridiculously girly gown, flowing blonde hair and diamonds, SUPERSTAR BARBIE was THE ONE. Malibu Barbie was good. But she couldn’t hold a candle to the joy of unwrapping that 11inch doll box and seeing that pinky goodness swaddled in carboard.

Princess Odette:Freed by the Ivalde Challenge

posted by Gidge Uriza

The beautiful Princess Odette, immortalized by the ballet SWAN LAKE, has been freed from her cursed life as a swan by the beautiful Sevina Gown by Ivalde.

Surrounded by Ethereal Ghosts of the Swans who served as her family and captors…….Odette spins and dances her joy upon being set free.

At least, that was my first thought upon seeing this new release from Ivalde and getting an invitation to request a review item from Beulah!  Continue reading

One Day Only Freebie At Lemania

posted by Gidge Uriza

Red and pink have been the color of the season so I was kind of tickled to see such an icy winter blue being given away at Lemania to her group.  Like so many of her designs, it’s a fancy – there’s nothing practical about it.

Which is exactly what I like. Good grief why play on the Grid and be PRACTICAL? (note – I think this dress is being retired also based on the description on it) Continue reading

The Store I Lost

posted by Gidge Uriza

Once Upon a Time, Cajsa TP’d me into a store. It was fully of elegant, delicious ballgown-goodness. There were some fastastic dollarbies (piles of gowns from older releases for about 5L) and a neat viewer that rotated THROUGH was was in the freebie boxes so you could SEE them. I thought this was  a great touch – how often do you get home with a hideous freebie? This way, you only pick up the one you want.

And I BOUGHT one, this EXCELLENT GREEN GOWN! I had an event to wear it to. Continue reading
