So Much To Do So Little Time

It’s my favorite time of year when multiple massive events collide. It’s HAIRFAIR and it’s SL20B and it’s also the SHOP & HOP Celebrating the SL20b.

I’ve only gotten about halfway around the Shop & Hop and honestly IDK if I care about doing the rest. Maybe? It’s such a crapshoot of amazing and awful – I suppose I may try.

Today I’m wearing something from the AMAZING category, a free Shop & Hop gift from Valentina E. This swimsuit is perfect for a girl who likes a little more modesty in her swimwear and I love a vintage look any time.

My little evening snack is a freebie also, how can I say no to such a pretty treat? It’s too pretty to eat – almost!

My hair is a free gift from KMH. I’m of two minds about it. The style is cute and I like the textures but the hairbase that you have to wear with it isn’t very well done. The front of it is fine but the sides are flat and just…disappointing. I shot it from the best possible angle but it’s not awesome. You might think “Well it was free why are you complaining?” But you see, I pick up free things to try out a new to me designer very often – especially at an event like Hair Fair. So I give it a B. The actual hair is cute. I’d buy one of their styles without a hair base or one I could use a different hair base with. Just my two cents.

Living Large on the Gangway

I’m your trashy neighbor, sorry.

Well it happened, with a lot of help and encouragement from my friend Gogolita I managed to get a spot on Bellisaria on the newly opened Gangway. Fate would have it that Cajsa has a houseboat right in front of my house, which is backed by a park behind me and a lovely stretch of road in front. 

It’s a nice little suburban wonderland really. 

SO you know I just had to get all crazy trashy with A GIANT HELLO KITTY SLIDE. It’s not my fault, I had to. At least for a little while

Hair Fair Is Over, Thank Goodness I at least shopped.

Cajsa managed to get off the Hair Fair press releases this year, as I was completely swamped. But I did manage to get over and do my part shopping that awesome event, I picked up several new hairs and felt warm and fuzzy when they were really contributing to Wigs for Kids. Hair Fair is such an amazing event – I hope you went.

Happy Here

This little home may be my home base for a while. Pity my neighbors i’m about to decorate for Halloween!

Gidge's Love List:The Good Blondes – Part 3

Oh you didn’t think I was DONE did you? No I just had a case of the RL. I think I’m cured of it now though.

I thought I’d start right back in loving on the creators of my favorite blondes and I’ll do it the alphabet way today – starting with Amacci. Amacci (above) makes skin,eyes, tattoo makeups now (sweet) and hair and probably other stuff that I’ve forgotten. I love the tones they use on their blonde textures because from the dirty blondes, strawberry blondes all the way to the pearl whites, they all have a creamy look that’s even and smooth.

They are in my top three long hair makers too. Long hair gets stuck in my boobs so I don’t shoot it that much, but I love to wear it. Continue reading

I Knew A Girl Named Ysenia

posted by Gidge Uriza

I used to work with this girl named Ysenia who was Cuban. Except, I lived in Tampa – and in Tampa you say SPANISH when you mean Cuban.

So let’s start over. I used to work with this girl named Ysenia who was SPANISH. She wasn’t very girly, she had long straight hair that she pulled back, and she wore her brothers old clothes and really, she made butch girls look girly. I liked her a lot and ate lunch with her frequently, and during lunch she’d taunt me about being such a girly girl and the fact that at that time, I changed my nail color more than some people changed their mind.

Oh There Goes Gravity,Oh There Goes Gravity

Meandering through the clothing fair has been a treat this week.  For instance, having wandered into KWZ on the TOKYO sim I feel in love with this outfit that falls under the category of DO NOT NEED/MUST HAVE. So I had to have it. Continue reading

Merry Magpie

Continuing coverage of the Accessory Fair moves on to Magpie and the delightfully colorful Magpie. Magpie is a perfect name for a jewelry store – what with the well-earned reputation of the birds for their love of bright and shiny things collected to feather their nest. Any self-respecting magpie nest would be proud to have these lovely blue and purple gem flowers brightening its nest, that’s for certain.

Phoenix Rising:The Bree Jacket

posted by Gidge Uriza

Phoenix Rising releases Bree on Weds March 3.  A belted pea jacket in rich deep tones it’s constructed with a casual open look that is great with or without something under it. I opted for a tank because I didn’t want to blind you with my boobs. Continue reading

It's Not Raining in SL

Oregon weather is so consistent. It’s warm and pleasant and dry for the summer and it’s cloudy, rainy and cool in the winter. It comes in two flavors and the one that’s on tap right now is not weather for this dress. Luckily, in SL I can be in any climate I feel like with a quick teleport from spot to spot. Snow, rain, tropics or jungles, deserts or forests, cities or castles – what you want you can find.  So, when I saw the lovely new Poppy skirt at Sugarcube I did not hesitate to pair it with a very summery top from So Many Styles.

I made the tiniest of concessions to reality by adding a short little velvet shrug from Adam n Eve, but seriously, if your jacket does not cover your midriff – it’s worn for fashion, not function. And clearly, fashion leads the way with that lovely silver embroidery and the adorable little hood. The jewelry is from Puarangi Design – though I have had this set so long it’s labeled Hi-Flo from the stores old name.

Can't Learn Nothin' In School They Don't Teach On The Streets…

posted by Gidge Uriza

When I got the new releases at A-BOMB today I have to admit, the thing that made me SQUEEEEEEEEE was totally the bowling bag purse. I’m serious, how many things can I make this match? I love quirky accessories and even though I might not wear a rockabilly look on a regular basis, I was instantly so in love with the purse that I had to style the rest of the releases with it on the spot.
