Wear it Like You Stole It

I had some fun with mix and matching items from this moth’s COLLABOR88 while doing my stupid work this weekend. While it’s always easiest just to slap things together the way one finds them on the vendor ad, it’s always been a passion of ours at IOF to mix things up a bit when we can. Continue reading

And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been.

And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been. Rainer Marie Rilke

Rilke was right to note that the new year would be full of things that have never been. Every new year brings us innovation, discovery and change. In that, every new year brings us something to hope for despite looming dangers. Despite the many losses that have made 2016 a bitter and sorrowful year, I fear we may look back on it with longing as the Grand Panjandrum takes the oath he will break that very day and every day that follows.

Tomorrow will follow tomorrow and time goes forward inexorably. All we can do, then, as we teeter on the edge of the abyss, is resist despair, resist defeat and find sanctuary in community, in beauty, and in certain knowledge that the arc of the moral universe may have gotten a kink in it, but it still bends toward justice.

The World Is Yours

I had a brief bout with homelessness yesterday. Funny, in my early days of SL – suddenly not having my own space would have made me feel panicked – even unsafe. But yesterday I thought “Eh, this’ll sort” and went wandering. I found my way over to Amatorum and I hadn’t visited it’s new incarnation, I’m rather delighted at how lovely it is again. It’s a little bloggers dream in terms of vignettes for shooting pictures. Continue reading

No YOU Need More PS…Just Sayin’

A lovely friend of mine, and fellow blogger got some weird critique. Well, weird to me. She was told “You need better PS skills.” This was in response to her applying to blog for someone.

Hmmmmm.

My advice in response was basically this. If their products are so bad that they require you to photoshop them, no one should be wearing them anyway. Continue reading

I Hope You Don’t Mind My Explosive Love

I have decided that all annoying messages begin “I hope you don’t mind…”and then they say something super annoying. “I hope you don’t mind me saying blah blah blah” oh god yes I do mind hush. I don’t care. Shhhhhh, go back to where you came from.

No one ever just messages you to say “hey i hope you don’t mind if i tell you that you’re lovely.”

I think I might start doing just that. Continue reading
