Yesterday I had a mini meltdown. I popped over to Seven Deadly Skins to grab the group gift and immediately went home to try it on. What can I say, I’m a fan girl. I was immediately upset because my Catwa head wasn’t working right. It wouldn’t take the BOM layer.
Now let me back up and say, I get it. Most of my SL issues are because I’m being Gidgey and NOT paying attention at all. Firs thing to check – am I actually wearing a CATWA head? Did I push the CATWA head BOM button on the HUD? I tried different skins – no avail. I tried OMEGA relay. No avail. I asked myself “What am I wearing to cause this?” I scanned through worn items quickly but could not see anything that made me go AHA. I posted on plurk and received a flurry of things to look for.
I rage quit. I went back. I took it off. I put it back on. I went back to plurk to RAGE About not getting it right. Someone suggested TATTOO layer and I went back to my WORN items list.
FUCK MY LIFE.
There are so many things to remember now. There are so many ways to wear a skin. Base layer with tattoo, omega, system skin, applier….it’s like in going back to basics we’ve just added even more complexity than this Gidgey brain can process. SO INDEED it was that I was wearing a tattoo layer FACE that my eyes just floated past every time I was checking out what I was wearing. My brain didn’t register that this would be an entire FACE even though I AM INDEED The person who put it on.
Thus, I took it off and solved my life.
This is the 7 Deadly Skins group gift and this is really an awesome group to belong to. I’m a huge fan.
I meant to change my hair but you guys I was traumatized by this skin thing. Hold me.

NyuNyu Moon has this lovely qipao (cheongsam) at Kurenai.It comes in eight options, this brocade in red and black, plus six pastel and vibrant florals. This is exclusive to Kurenai which ends tomorrow, so if you don’t rush over there now, you won’t get another chance. Of course, many people make cheongsam’s but few have the excellent rigging and quality construction of NYU. Continue reading →
Edna St. Vincent Millay was not thinking of textiles when she wrote, “I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one,” but nonetheless, when I put on this dress from NOIR for Collabor88, I immediately thought of her poem, “Afternoon on a Hill” perhaps because of that line, but also perhaps because it describes so well, the joy and contentment a person can find in nature.
I will be the gladdest thing Under the sun! I will touch a hundred flowers And not pick one.
I will look at cliffs and clouds With quiet eyes, Watch the wind bow down the grass, And the grass rise.
And when lights begin to show Up from the town, I will mark which must be mine, And then start down!
i’m feeling a dreamy sort of contentment swathed in teal today. It’s one of my favorite colors and it fell out of favor for so long, I’m glad to see it’s return.
Blueberry bring us a perfect casual skirt set for Collabor88 this month, and I’m in love with my new Updo (I have two new ones yay) this one is from D!VA. I love the Moonstone shade of blonde she makes. What’s your favorite?
It’s a quickie for me tonight. Have a great Sunday evening girls.

“Are the days of winter sunshine just as sad for you, too? When it is misty, in the evenings, and I am out walking by myself, it seems to me that the rain is falling through my heart and causing it to crumble into ruins.”
It says a lot about a creator when they’re your Go TO for an item. With an inventory pushing 134k I’ve got a lot of “jeans”. Ok a lot of them are system jeans and I need to let that shit go. BUT, BLUEBERRY is always my “Damn I need jeans” go to. This is probably because she makes for all the bodies and I am always in Belleza when I need Maitreya or Maitreya when I need SLINK and not having to rearrange my entire ensemble for the day is a WIN.
You have a few hours to get to Collabor88 before this deliciously neutral theme goes away and the rich harvest colors come in. It will be good as well, but I have a love of neutrals and the romantic delicacies that were the highlight of September. This sweater from The Secret Store beautiful encapsulates the September SweetCheeks theme with its lace and pearl buttons.
Baiastice’s Chause trousers are a lovely illustration that neutrals can be bold. Continue reading →
