IFW10 – All the Pretty Little Horses

Hybrid Ansar sent me the best gift in Second Life on Friday – a notecard full of places she likes for taking photos that I will be incorporating into my own notecard. When I put on the La Memoire dress from Aleida for International Fashion Week, I wanted shoot it someplace really different and found that at Drill Factory where high in the sky there is an inspired merry-go-round that is the Merry-Go-Round of  Dreams.

It’s an amazing site and I will definitely go back to explore the many hubs and stations of this galactic carnival at Drill Factory.

I Love Olive

I do love olive – in all its forms. I love the color – it’s earthy and comfortable. I love the fruit – the rich, fatty, meaty olives that are so, so dangerous. I love the oil brushed on a flat piece of dough with some zaatar spice mix or drizzled with vinegar in salad or in a hundred other ways. I even like Olive Oyl. And in this outfit, I get to love twice – in the gorgeous pullover from Moonshine Designs and in the I Love Olive hair I am wearing.

Wingless Fae

posted by Gidge Uriza

The Collaboration between Lark and Dark Mouse brings us FAE in gown and jewelry – a gorgeous set that truly screams for me to put on some wings.

And did you know I used to be a Fairy? I did!

But none of my wings matched.

And I’m lazy.

So I didn’t go wing shopping.

But Lizzie did.

The gown and jewelry come in multiple tones each complimenting the other – I chose to wear gold because I was having a very blonde day and my blonde girl likes gold.

These two pieces are offered at the Etheria event which is still going on until the 20th . Continue reading

Compact Beauty is a Reasonable Desire

posted by Gidge Uriza

I’ve probably bounced around on this cute compact pose set of Cajsa twenty times in various lingerie and get-ups, but it wasn’t until I got the Victorian Ventilated Corset set from Reasonable Desires that I’d found what I really wanted to wear on it.

I mean, ribbed hose? White cotton bloomers? Ah….I’m ironically sexy! Continue reading

Dotty is as dotty does

I have mentioned my love of polka dots before. I don’t know why, but they make me smile. No insult intended to squares and triangles and rhombi, but they just don’t press my happy button the way these lovely little round circles do. Polka dots often make me think retro and rockabilly. They make me think of Rizzo and Jive-Talkin’ and dancing the night away.  Certainly this fun little set of separates from A-Bomb would have made Rizzo happy any day of the week.

Olive's Mermaid

posted by Gidge Uriza

As a child, I had a book of proper fairy tales that didn’t have the Politically Correct and Sanitized versions in it. I still loved the stories – but was always especially mesmerized by the story of the Little Mermaid – who in the story, endured the agony of walking on knives with each step she took on land. This was the price she paid for having legs and being with the man she’d fallen in love with.

Mermaids are always a little sad to me, because of this. Continue reading


Monica Outlander of MiaMai has realeased a perfectly named dress called Fascino – Fascination. As you can see, it’s a dress made to fascinate and draw the eye, from the form-fitting glittering bodice to the eye-catching belting and neckpiece to the oh-so-captivating low back. It’s a dress that feeds your eyes.
