take a stroll…

Through the lovely Cafe Adrastea when you have a moment to spare. It’s one of my favorite places to chill. It’s also a really good backdrop for pictures especially when you are wearing cute new mesh goodies from Leezu! This cute oxford dress is a new fav of mine and it comes in 3 different sizes. I bought it on the marketplace and didn’t see a demo but I took a chance and I’m glad I did. No buyers remorse here!

Now I’m walking on sunshine, oh oh!
I’m walking on sunshine, oh oh!
I’m walking on sunshine, oh oh!
And don’t it feel good!

Perhaps walking in sunshine is a more apt description for toddling about in this sunshine dress from Shiki Designs, nonetheless you can’t help but feel as happy as can be in this dress as bright as a smile.

Trees in the garden


I am stealing a segment and the title from D. H. Lawrence’s poem. You know, for all his notoriety for Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Sons and Lovers and Women In Love, I always thought he wrote most passionately about nature. He wrote as though he wanted to strip and roll around naked in the grass and describe all the pokes and prickles, the fresh scents and the soft springiness.

And the ghostly, creamy coloured little tree of leaves
white, ivory white among the rambling greens
how evanescent, variegated elder, she hesitates on the green grass
as if, in another moment, she would disappear
with all her grace of foam!

This was shot at Emerald Green where little surprises like this lovely garden are hidden around every corner.

A Moonlit Night at Linda Voc

Shopping in Second Life has lots of pleasures – including shopping to help others. For example, the gorgeous skirt is on sale at the Help Japan event and 100% of its proceeds will go to help respond to the people of Japan. The top is an adorable dress on sale at The Dressing Room. Gidge blogged it the other day, but I wanted to show you how well it works as a top as well.

I shot my pictures at Linda Voc, the home sim for Deviant Girls. I was shopping there and will soon be showing you some finds. Right now, though, I want to show you what a gorgeous sim it is. You won’t see this at the shopping mall.

Gidge shared a list of censor bait from her workplace IT staff yesterday. It’s a long, long, long list of words that will alert the censor sharks to eat emails and make them disappear. There’s a number I have never heard of. In fact, Google® has never heard of “blue vein nose flute” either. Oddly, the word “girls” made the list. Even in naughty e-mails, it’s not the word “girls” that’s naughty, but the surrounding words. The list made me think of my mother who was a fierce and hyper-competitive Scrabble® player. She kept a notebook with the game score of every game she played with people and calculated handicaps so whether the player was a novice or an expert, the game should be a close one. She played to win, which meant that no one should have been shocked to see her use the word “fuck” while playing with the pastor of the Baptist Church. But we were.


No obscenities were harmed in the creation of these photos, though I wonder if any of the designers swore a bit. Whenever I admire the fine detail work in jewelry such as this lovely set from Kunglers, I imagine manipulating those teeny tiny prims and recall how sometimes my cursor slips and prims start flying off into the wide, wide world and feel certain that some words from Gidge’s list might get taken out for a walk. Incidentally, I used no poses in this shoot – because the Baiastice skirt comes with its own AO and thought you might like to see what it does. I am not fond of skirts with AO’s myself – and it’s a simple thing to remove the AO if you’re like me and prefer your own AO, even if you do put your hands in your skirt once in awhile. However, if you want to be sure that your hands are where they should be, the AO will keep your hands where they belong.

When I saw this lovely argyle print dress from Chantkare, I immediately thought of the argyle-lined jacket from Royal Blue. They really work perfectly together. You can find them both at Call For Couture which is raising funds for The Samaritans.


I shot the pictures at Lunamaruna – a little city that makes me think of Dr. Seuss. It’s great fun and worth a visit.

In the Subway Take Two


Another great jacket and pants set featured at Modavia Fashion Week comes from Shai Delacroix of Casa del Shai. It’s the Vixen Knit Kimono with Leopard Print pants. I really love the texturing on this outfit. In fact, I oohed and aahed like an idiot while watching it come down the runway at the show.


I shot this again at the Subway Station that Urban Decay sells. This is in the front part of the station before the turnstiles that lead to the tunnel.

It's a Men's Sweater & I Don't Care


So the other day my friend Hart Larsson of PXL Creations passed me a couple sweaters to try on and critique. He asked if I liked the colors and if the pois looked good. I asked “What’s pois?” Then I crashed before he answered.. or he crashed. I don’t remember. So…I googled it. You can google it, too. The first response in Google is Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome. So I log back in with some ammunition to tease him, and ask “What’s pois?” again, but he explained quite simply that it’s those little dots and sure enough if you look in a French-English dictionary – it is a polka dot or dot. I took pity on Hart and didn’t ask him about Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome after all.


You see, I got distracted by the details on the sweater – like the little tag sticking up on the back with the PXL logo on it. I actually said “Awwww, that’s so cute!” out loud, making my cat think I was talking to him and preen a little.  Anyway, it’s an adorable sweater in a rainbow of colors. It has charming details and it has pois. In fact, there’s only one thing wrong with it – it’s for men. However, I don’t care. It fits me like a glove and I am going to wear it anyway. And, ladies, just so you know, one of my critiques was that Hart needed to add some lighter colors which he did later – after I shot these pictures. So now there’s a nice antique rose, a cornflower blue, a lovely beige – beautiful colors for women AND men.


The look I went for was pretty casual and I shot the pictures at The Mother Road – an homage to Route 66. However, I didn’t shoot on the highway this time, but walked a few blocks away from the road into the farmland that it crosses. Continue reading

Expectations 8: Mixed Expectations

It’s pretty clear that with the many Sn@tch separates we can put together all sorts of looks, but let’s not forget that we can also take pieces of outfits and mix with separates for an entire new look as well. For example, the cocktail dance dress that Gidge blogged the other day is a perfect resource for mining for ingredients in a new look. Here, I take the bodice and sleeves and mix with a sash from Personal and a skirt from Sn@tch for a new look.

IFW10 – Balancing Act

Today’s the last day of International Fashion Week, which come to think of it, should probably be International Fashion Long Weekend or International Fashion Four Days. I wish it were a week – which would give me more days to spread out my posts about the designs I want to highlight – so I am not posting 4 times in one day. But I suppose there’s reasons for a shorter event – events like these are often balancing acts of meeting competing needs such as finding good times for people from around the world to participate in an event that spans every time zone.  So in honor of all the concerns of designers, customers, bloggers, models and anyone else that must be juggled by event organizers, I thought I would shoot this dress from Orage Creations in Olive Juice’s Ball Pit – where there are many balls in the air – and they are in very delicate balance.
