I bought this on my way to buy something else

I wonder how often folks do this. I went to G. Field to pick up one or two of the darling new spring blouses that we have all been seeing on the feed. Everyone looks so cute and adorable and the multiplicity of posts just shows how wonderfully flexible the tops are. So off I go and the store is full and I am waiting for things to rez and the first thing to rez is the vendor photo for this blouse set – an entire top wardrobe in one as it comes with sleeveless, short sleeve and long sleeve options. It’s a classic blouse style with the maximum flexibility for shoppers who want the most for their lindens. I could not resist.  And could you? My inventory would be so much neater and smaller if it were not for the wonderful somethings I have found on my way to find something else.

Gotta-Have-It Hair

I am in love with the Jenna hair from Exile released last weekend. If you can only buy one hair style, this should be it. It’s sexy, new and fresh. It’s superb for photos but not so outre that you cannot wear it running around. As Lil C might say, “It’s buck!”

Hair this hawt needs a a dress that is equally hot and the K.I.T. Rue Cambon dress from Mimikri answers the challenge. It’s a gorgeous black and white tweed with echoes of Chanel chic in the cut and form, but with some of the signature Mimikri boldness with the oversize tweed pattern. It’s design genius that flatters your shape up one side and down the other. Put it together with the bedroomy hair over the shoulder and it’s flaming hot.

The Colors of the Season:A Mashup of Some of My Faves

posted by Gidge Uriza

There are some days that I like getting dressed out of my inventory as though it were a closet, pulling out pants, tops, etc vs just opening a folder and slapping everything ON.

Don’t get me wrong, the latter is EASIER, but I like wearing things together that were not intended as such – sometimes I have a lot more fun with it. Such as this outfit I wore roaming around the grid the other night. Continue reading

Too Sexy For My Skirt

Polina Kaestner has made one of the sexiest, cutest skirts ever!!  It is very sheer and your legs will show – and that’s the point! It has a perfectly discreet pair of matching glitch panties and that is enough to keep embarrassment at bay so long as you don’t have a friend like Gidge who actually sent an IM to the entire fashion bloggers group saying she could see my butt and then sent a slurl inviting people to come see my butt.  However, I was not embarrassed. The skirt is adorable and a few glimpses thanks to my AO isn’t going to upset me. I should have just changed AO’s, but Gidge was having too much fun.  Considering that she was wearing the Lonely Goatherd dress and carrying a goat, I think she really didn’t have a leg to stand on.

Hair Fair Short Hair

I decided to sort the hair by style and show them to you in groups of short, long, updos and so on. This first post shows you some of the short hair at Hair Fair. I actually got several more short hair styles but they were men’s styles and I thought I would rather show you that as a group. Some of these I tinted to get closer to the red I prefer.

The Allure of Linen

posted by Gidge Uriza

I love natural fibers in my clothes. In RL I’m far too lazy to maintain them or iron them etc, but I love the look and feel of them to the exclusion of anything else.  Faery Sola announced she had made some highwaisted pants about the same time I receive a group gift from the SUPER gracious Pink Outfitters group and well……..they both ended up on my ON the same day.

It’s a top. It’s pants. I got them the same day. It was MEANT to be. Continue reading

Keep It Simple, Stupid

posted by Gidge Uriza

I’m not normally a big fan of “natural” makeups on skins, that au natural look that is so 2008.  But some people do it well. My first thought when trying on Rykers Genesis-Eden skin in the 1st Time makeup was – Beach Face!

Ok ok ok, it’s not SL Beach Face.

But, it’s sort of MY beach face. In RL. Pale skin, freckled by the sun, pink lips – clear complexion.  It’s obviously meant to convey a very natural wholesome beauty and I think that Ryker really achieved that with this – giving definition and form to what is often a washed out nude on other skins.

…And It Was All Yellow……

posted by Gidge Uriza

Once upon a time, when we were just two instead of five, my fiancee and I stood on a Florida beach at night, down at the edge of our campsite and danced under the moon and stars to Cold Play’s YELLOW. 

The sound of the water, and the wind through the palms swirled around Chris Martin’s mysterious vocals as well held each other tight and marveled at being in such a place an in love. Continue reading
