Sn@tch It Up!

posted by Gidge Uriza

When the big stores have their wonderful, huge markdown sales, I always like to take advantage of stocking up on basics. Sn@tch is one of my favorite stores for picking up different things that make great additions to any outfit. I can’t believe, however, that I had never noticed this sweater, scarf comb that I picked up during their L$50 sale. Nutty! Continue reading

This One Is For Emma

posted by Gidge Uriza


The first time I put on the Efe skin, my first thought was that “MAN, This sort of looks like my friend Emma!” Emma is a real life friend, and is as pretty or not prettier than the combo of my shape + Efe’s skin. Which is a fairly good compliment to a human person, as Efe is amazingly pretty.

I have been looking for something subtle but pretty to wear when I showed off my first acquisition from a too cool earring shop EAR CANDY, and this group gift sweater from PINK COUTURE totally fit the bill. Continue reading

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

Casual Friday – It's A-Bomb

posted by Gidge Uriza

I love it when a designer (especially one I’m not all that familiar with) throws out a new release with ONE color a little cheaper. I think it’s a great alternative to a freebie. We get to check you out and see if we like your work and you still get a payment, albeit token, for your work. I know if I like your work – I won’t hesitate to come back and pick up the color I love.

Cross My Heart

posted by Gidge Uriza

Jewelry with religious tones is always fascinating to me, be it an Ankh or a Cross or something from the east (okay technically the ankh is from EAST of me but I’m thinking EAST of that). I like especially like wearing Celtic Crosses (that’s the Irish in me) and this stylized Celtic set from Earthstones is a great modern take on an intricate traditional style. Featuring earrings and a necklace in a variety of tones this casual set makes a very subtle stylish addition to this casual outfit. Continue reading

You Talkin' To ME?

Don’t let the Angel Jeans Fool You. I’m a mean girl.

Okay, I might only be PARTIALLY mean.  I look kinda tough in that shot though.

Cajsa named the set Jean Genie, which was what I was listening to on my evening commute……and what I was originally going to call MY post but that looking over the should is just so TOUGH GIRL! Continue reading

Who's Sari Now?

Silly Title Is Cajsas Fault!

Silly Title Is Cajsa's Fault!

Cajsa posted a while back about the wonderful goodies that were free over at Yak and Yeti – and since I ALWAYS need more jewelry (duh You’ve MET ME RIGHT?) I went rushing over without an appreciation for HOW MUCH WAS FREE.

I walked a way with more sari’s and other traditional gear than my sherpa could carry, let me tell you. Continue reading

Yippee Ki-Yay - M*ther-F*cker!

When Alice07 Barzane announced that the Peppermint Blue 1 Year Anniversary Party was going to be a Western Theme……I knew where I was going to turn. While I LOVE the fun of just hunting up stuff via search (I actually do) – looking up stores I might not have heard of etc to see what they have, I’d been looking for a reason to pick up WASTELAND COWGIRL from Bare Rose for quite a while.

I don’t normally look for a reason to pick up clothes, but this kind of falls into the “Costume” milieu of my closet and I don’t generally just collect costumes without cause. Yet, from the instant I saw this one on Phil’s place posted by Tori….I knew I wanted it. Pink Leather Chaps?!?! PLEASE! Continue reading
