So hey! I’m back from vacation. We had lovely weather, I managed to bathe in the ocean several times and although it was a bit cold, it felt really good, and I even got a tan. Now I can get back to showing you lots of lovely things I grabbed before I left and while I was away (the very old and crappy laptop I had didn’t allow me to take decent pictures…)
That jumpsuit from Ison I don’t even remember buying. I looked at my inventory at some point and it was there. I suppose I was trying to get the demo and misclicked and got the fatpack instead. I would blame the crappy laptop but you know what? I regret nothing, it’s impeccably meshed and fitted, and the textures are gorgeous. Not sure C88 is still open but if so, run and get everything!

I decided to take a hike for my Saturday afternoon activity. CAN YOU BELIEVE that in an inventory of ALMOST 140k items I don’t own one single item called “hiking boots”? I, like you dear reader, am incredulous of this fact yet here we are. I didn’t own a pair and since I was off on vacation and CLEARLY can’t just teleport to a shop to pick up a pair I had to make due with what I had in my suitcase inventory.
Luckily I had JUST thing thing from ISON – perfectly suited to protect my feet from nymphs or sprites or bugs or whatever it was that is currently inhabiting this place I’m staying for the weekend. Continue reading →
I continue to play with the concept of Bakes On Mesh (WHY CAN’T WE CALL IT BAKED ON MESH?) and decided there was no more fun place to see what I could do than at my good friend Putrid’s place.
Putrid likes weird, and I like Putrid. It’s perfect.
I wandered around her club Sticky Fingers and was quite entertained to realize that my tattoos still show up properly over my “BAKED ON MESH SKIN”. I’d like to understand how the layering of all that works but no, I’m just going to pass and say WELL DONE THIS IS AWESOME.
Mesh body, mesh clothes, mesh shoes, applier tights and tattoos. Am I happy? Yeah I’m pretty happy. Continue reading →
I looked across the lake and found that Cajsa has tinted a new house from Barnesworth Anubis that you can pick up at Collabor88 to a striking RED color. I’m so in love with it that I’m envious I didn’t think of it myself.
I always like to bust up sets and mix and match because it shows that the clothing people make in Second Life is more versatile than we think. For that reason, even though the Irina cropped sweater I am wearing from The Secret Store comes with a beautiful skirt that coordinates with it, I chose to wear a different skirt to show it can be done. Of course, you know and I know it can be done, but a reminder is useful. Continue reading →
My computer has been on sabbatical since December 18th. It took a trip to Cupertino to soak in the warmer weather and pick up a new logic board. Luckily, it returned last night just in time for me to show off this gorgeous dress from ISON before Collabor88 shimmies itself into a new monthly showcase on the 8th. Is this not lovely and it comes in five colors and I posed on that pose stand clicking the HUD through those colors over and over and over and over again trying to decide. It was impossible, they are all wonderful. So, I eenie-meenied my way to this lovely rose shade. I am decisive like that sometimes. Continue reading →
Resistance is not futile. Resistance gives flight to hope and defies despair. Resistance reminds us that we are a better nation when we embrace social and racial justice. While the arc of history just got a big kink in its bend toward justice, it still bends. We have lived experience that gay rights, women’s rights, civil rights and human rights are empowering, not weakening our country. They cannot erase that knowledge, the lived experience of Americans who saw that gay rights bring joy, that trans liberation brings freedom, that women’s rights brings advancement, that immigrant rights bring progress, and that human rights bring progress. They can try to take away those rights, but the living experience of our people prove their crabbed and cruel vision of the future is a lie. We will prevail in the long run. They are on the wrong side of history which is why even their temporary victory fills them with rage instead of celebration.
Henry Green was talking about editing and writing when he said, “The more you leave out, the more you highlight what you leave in.” The truth of that statement, though, applies to fashion as well as writing or any other kind of art. That is why I enjoy wonderfully restrained minimalist design like you get from ISON & Rowne. These pieces are from a showcase collection that will be taken off the market after September 30th, so go to ISON as soon as you can.
