It's Not That Easy

It’s Not Easy Being Green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over
cause you’re not standing out
Like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky

But green is the color of spring
and green can be cool and friendly like
and green can be big like a mountain
or important like a river
or tall like a tree

This song made me think of creators who truly make nice, very well made items that might not be THE BIG GUNS you see releasing news at Modavia. They’ve got talent, they’ve got verve but they’re not the big fashion houses we’ve spent the past week drooling over.

Regardless, there are some brands that release fun and pretty pieces that are just as NOT TO BE MISSED as anything else. The precious dress from SOMNIA is a great example. Released in MYRIAD colors and on basically EVERY LAYER POSSIBLE (good god Sanura when do you SLEEP)  this is a great example that there are gems laying about.

You just have to get out and go shopping. 🙂

And, dig the awesome guillotine necklace from Bewildebeest and the new statement ring from Dark Mouse. SWEEET New Jewelry Is SWEEEET.

I Kept Trubble, I Knew I'd Need It

posted by Gidge Uriza

I knew when I saw the Erin dress from Trubble that I was going to need it. I didn’t know what FOR, but I knew I would indeed want it for something. So I threw it out on my bedroom floor by the window. WEEKS ago. I’ve been staring at it so long, it was in danger of becoming artwork. Continue reading

Inconveniently Undead

posted by Gidge Uriza

I’m a very socially active girl. You can imagine my distress when I woke up one evening FAR after my normal waking time, to discover myself among the Undead!  This was clearly going to put a crimp in my entertaining and social schedule!

Or was it? I decided right then and that I’d just have to accept Vampire as part of my new look and go about my business as normal. After all, I I have entertaining to do!

And – buffets to dust!

I find myself a bit more full of whimsy and giddy-ness since I’ve joined the Undead. Perhaps it’s simply a symptom of being Nouveau Undead and I’ll settle down with time. After all, it just doesn’t seem appropriately somber to be this exuberant AND Undead! Continue reading

Indy 500 Fever

posted by Gidge Urza

Indy 500 fever will be gripping the greater Indianapolis area as the parties and events leading up to the big race are in FULL Swing by now. (ah, I do miss it). Party hopping on Friday before the race used to be a full-on social requirement and the only requirement for being fashionable, was to ROCK the black and white.

I was wandering around Retrology just seeing what I needed and still didn’t have and ambled into this really cute set from Encore. Meeting all the requirements of casual, cute and black & white I decided it was a win for Friday festivities! Continue reading

Semper Ubi Sububi

posted by Gidge Uriza

When I picked up my fatpack of Alto tone skins at Symphony Skins – I told creator Claire Harford that I was gonna rummage through inventory and break them out in some bikinis to show them off. They’re gorgeous with nice femme tummies and no muscle-y shadowing while still looking quite fit.

Plus she included a cleavage version with some monster cleavage going on – this one’s for the …….boys! (Or girls if that’s how you roll). Continue reading

Business as Usual

posted by Gidge Uriza

Wetherby’s is truly one of my new shopping addictions. I know I told you before, she offers shoes with most if not all of her dresses, and the shoes look great – vs. the garbage you sometimes get in “complete outfits”.

Cajsa had remarked when I blogged Sascha Frangilli’s Roxanne a few days ago that the belt was smokin’ hawt – and I agreed, and fangrld that it was on the jacket layer so I could use it with other things.

Layer Options Make a Happy Fashion Blogger

The dress is a really nice retro cut (think 1964) dress but adding the belt gives it a little urban edge that I think is anachronistic and fun.

Yeah, I just said a lot of stuff didn’t I? Continue reading

Casual Friday:Mix and Match

posted by Gidge Uriza

Today is a great example of how you should always look at your group gifts/freebie gifts even if you think they are not completely your cup of tea. I received Jaycie from Dollyrock as a group gift, and it’s a little dress, halter top, glitch pants, shortie cutie skirt.

I don’t wear a lot of this style, and my initial reaction was “Meh I don’t wear a lot of these, I’ll bag this.” And with an inventory aproaching 40k – I think this is something I need to do even more.  But I really LIKED the texture and thought the little halter was a cute summer top – so I kept it hoping inspiration would strike.

It did. Continue reading
