Infinity Skins is now open – though still unofficially – so you can hop over and try out the demos of the different skins I have been wearing most of this week. This one is Ava and it is an elegant and regal face that really suits this Seldom Blue gown called Sensations. And the name of the gown suits this skin – and I am sure when you try out the demos, you will think they are sensational too.

I <3 Pixel Dolls

Pixel Dolls has been running a 50L sale for weeks now – discounting dresses one type of clothing one week and another the next.  Since I have always thought their regular prices were a good deal for their quality and thoughtful construction – this 50L sale is more exciting for me than the freebie hunts. You see, Pixel Dolls creates wonderful textures and rich, deep and vibrant colors and makes them on every layer. Their clothing is versatile and wonderful for mash-ups.

En Vogue

Miffy of Zenith and I have been friends since my first month in Second Life and have spent many hours sitting on a pig talking about this that and the other thing. I remember watching her make her first clothes and marveling at her sureness and speed in moving those prims around. She often sends me her newest creation and every once in a while I will blog one that is less neko that most of her clothes.  Now is when I admit that she once asked me why I dressed like an old lady. Such is the difference between 20 and 33. However, we are both a year older now and that year makes a bigger difference for her…which really shows in the increasing feminity and maturity of her designs. This last dress she did is just stunning and for the first time, I am doing a blog post of an outfit in all its colors: silver, gold, pink, blue and black.

Ever since Yves St. Laurent ripped Mondrian’s paint off the canvass and shaped his art onto a woman’s body, colorblock dresses have been a perenniel staple of fashionistas around the world. In this iteration, Dani’s Fashions adds a perfectly matched yellow jacket with lines that align perfectly with the dress. It’s really quite stunning and was a joy to accessorize.

Encemble For a Sunday Afternoon

*please read all the way through, I really do know how to spell Ensemble**
Responding to some recent grousing about “unknown designers” not getting enough play in the fashion blogs, I decided to spend some of my free time specifically going to stores I didn’t know. Just looking up random search terms and TP’ing in. Looking, in fact, for that diamond that simply has not been mined yet.

I ended up in some scary places and a ton of BIAB store. Hoohoo. Yeah, oh and some orgy rooms. But I digress. Continue reading

Quick Look – SWA's Perfect Denim Skirt

posted by Gidge Uriza

When I got a “perfect fit” denim skirt dropped on me the other day, I was a bit skeptical. But when I drug it out, saw the fun purple denim AND the fact that when I put it on – the center panel prim was really simple to adjust to make look right on MY Shape……I was like “Okay, this might be the PERFECT Fit skirt!” Continue reading

Dress Me Up Challenge: Gidge as a Neko

posted by Gidge Uriza

Dear God. Know why I don’t do Neko? (Besides the tails creep me out and make me think of THIS) It’s the accessories! I just can’t buy super cute ears PLUS rockin Hair or a tail AND shoes. WOW. Nekos  spend a lot of money on stuff. YOWZAH.

At least – to look cute they do.

Maybe if a Neko and a spoiled fashionista had a baby – THIS is what she would look like!

I opted for the Uncle Wiggly necklace which was “collarish” vs. a real collar. And bushier eyebrows than I normally wear.

AH not my best effort, but clearly, I’m not a member of the Paws Clan.

I feel certain that Clara Bow will be more within my range!

From Hong Kong with Love

My friend Miffy (Miffyhoi Rosca) has been making clothes a little over a year now. I have spent hours sitting on her Electro-Kitty pig watching while she concocts one of those outrageous belts with filled with different kinds of candy or cigarettes or looped together a prim skirt and admired her sure and confident whipping of prims into shape. Her style is youthful and fun and just keeps getting better. Once or twice a week she drops her newest and latest on me to check out. Lately, though, her style is branching out into more colors and I am finding it much more appealing for me personally. Take this lovely red dress.
