Slink Goes to New Heights

Shoe addicts have a new drug thanks to Siddean Munro of Slink. Her flat and medium bare feet have conquered the grid, enabling shoe-makers to focus on making shoes while skin-makers bring their expertise to create appliers matching feet to their specific skins. It was a great innovation that has enhanced everyone’s style, but now Siddean takes it to new heights with her high bare feet. Shoe-makers whose focus has been on high stilettos can now join the party of folks doing what they do best – making shoes.

Fittingly, she is releasing these new higher bare feet at Shoetopia, the fabulous celebration of everything footly. Shoetopia is fundraising expo of shoes, socks and feet hoping to raise funds to support Soles4Souls, a charity that gives shoes to the shoeless around the world and also supports micro-enterprises in developing countries by allowing people to sell used shoes and earn a living.

SLink is also releasing three pairs of shoes for the high feet at Shoetopia. This is Hera, a sinuous stiletto with beautiful curving lines that enwrap the foot. I love how the natural flow of leather seems simply to be about curves as though securing the shoe is incidental – a lovely trick of engineering.


My dress is from Mea Culpa. I love the gorgeous print and the extravagant stargazer lilies on the shoulder and hips. The rich gold and deep burgundy are gorgeous colors for fall. In particular, I love how the sweep of the gold lines in the dress remind me of the sweeping curves of the shoes.


The glorious colors of the dress inspired me to go out leaf-peeping at Seni Seviyorum. It’s gorgeous and so many lovely spots for taking pictures.

Confessions – Wrath


PXL Creations WRATH

Number four on the Seven Sins series celebrating the coincidentally simultaneous release of PXL Creations Seven Sins Gacha skins and Buckcherry’s Confessions album with songs focusing on each of the Seven Sins. Today’s sin is Wrath – and the skin is deliciously maleficent while the song was appropriately angry and hard-edged. Of course, what made it work so well for wrath aurally made it one I didn’t like as well as the others.

Hey man, do you wanna get a fist so hard?
Do you wanna see who’s in charge?
I’m gonna show you your future
Hey man, you think you’re strong enough to play this game?
It’s gonna burn like acid rain, you’re gonna need some sutures

I got this need to be broken and I’m taking you on this ride
I got this need to broken and I keep all my wrath inside


I chose this dress from Faster Pussycat because its strong lines are accented with white stitching giving it a very disciplined look while the ruff is reminiscent of how animals raise their hackles in anger and also of Queen Elizabeth I who could be wrathful and powerful.

Not Too Late

Not Too Late

I was going to blog this lovely gown I picked up at Culture Shock, but I ran out of time. Culture Shock closed yesterday and I am eager to hear how much was raised in total. Anyway, although this was a donation gown at Culture Shock, it will be available after the event at Vanguard, a store that features wonderfully bold and provocative clothing.

I Was All Aglow


BFour years ago, I went to ND/MD Skins and Shapes where I purchased an Angelina Jolie look-alike skin and shape and a Marilyn Monroe look-alike shape in preparation for Halloween parties. I was a noob and I was thrilled that the store owner was in the store. She chatted with me and tp’ed in her partner Moonlay Laval to say hi as well. Alea gave me lots of advice on how to put together my Tomb Raider look and taught me one of the most valuable skills I ever learned in Second Life – tinting hair to get the color I want. I still do it all the time and often think of her when I am fussing with my hair. She invited me to be her friend and became the very first creator on my friend’s list. If you remember you noob days, you know how over the moon I was.

Glam, Glam, Glamorous


Did you know that glamorous used to be the word for magic spell, an enchantment. In time it began to be used to describe someone who was alluring through the use of makeup, hairstyling and fashion. The enchantment came from styling instead of magic, from Vogue instead of the Book of Spells. People in fashion and the arts started to use glam – short for glamourous – in the 60s and the word came into its own with Glam Rock – but glam is not quite a synonym for glamorous, there’s an element of the avant garde, of edginess, of pushing the envelope. The name Glam Affair tells you right up front that this design house is not about movie star glamour, but about rock star glam. The glam of the bold, the brave and the beautiful.

Modavia Fashion Week 2011.03


Continuing with the funk meets fashion collection from Bliss Couture, I have fabulously stylized low-rise denim jeans with bell bottoms so side you can hide the 1970’s in them.  Add the puffy fake fur jacket and gauntlets and you can hide a good share of the 60’s as well. She’s giving us more of what we’re funking for.

So wide can’t get around it
So low you can’t get under it.
One nation under a groove.

Modavia Fashion Week 2011.02


The Bliss Couture collection is a fabulous mix of separates to mix and match. I said before, it’s a great combination of fashion and funk. There’s lots of exposure in this collection but “Funk not only moves, it can re-move.

The desired effect is what you get
When you improve your Interplanetary Funksmanship.

NOT Mea Culpa. YET Mea Culpa. Discuss.

posted by Gidge Uriza

I told my friend Ersatz that ever since I got the Onebae hair from Miamai I’d been searching for something MORE ERSATZ and LESS GIDGE to wear with it, because hair that extraordinary needed something special.

And then Cajsa took my shopping at Mea Culpa for my birthday.

Ummmmm. WOW I’m addicted. And will now need a sugar daddy. I’ll set up an online application.  Shhhh don’t tell my hubby. Kidding, he reads this blog. HI HUNNY! Continue reading

Jewelry Fair Faves: Violator


If you’re looking for a hot, sexy, edgy look, you should head right over to the Violator booth at the Jewelry Fair where Soraya Vaher has conjured up some gorgeous jewelry and accessories for the Fair. For this outfit, I chose the fabulous The Punk, The Ruff and the Beast collection of earrings, neckpiece and bracelet as well as the hat from The Dark Note set.


They are perfect accessories for the gorgeous House of Hucci exclusive for LeLook. The bold red, white and black is dramatic. The lines of sequins remind me of the earring design. It’s a dress that demands jewelry that is out of the ordinary and that’s the only kind of jewelry you can find at Violator.
