The move is complete, the bags and boxes unpacked and I have settled into a chair to take a last look before crawling into bed.

The nice thing about moving in Second Life is that one does not have to look the part.  I am wearing a mini-dress from 1992 that is the ne plus ultra of hot, sexy modernity. It’s revealing, edgy and definitely “designed” but not at all over-designed. It comes in a solid beige, a solid black or this print – and all can be found at The Dressing Room.

Moving In

Well, I decided to go for it and move into the Brooklyn Carriage House from Trompe L’oeil. It’s smaller than the big brownstone I was living in and requires a lot less furniture, but I ended up buying some furniture anyway, because that’s what happens when you move. You need new things. Among the new things are this lovely vanity that’s also from Trompe L’oeil and a big blue velvet bed from there as well.

I added this glorious lounge/daybed from Mudhoney that can be found at this month’s Collabor88. The golden key embellishment at the bottom and the gorgeous … Read more at the source.

House Hunting

I have been thinking about moving, downsizing from my lovely, but large, 5th Avenue townhouse and have been on the lookout for something marvelous. I think I found it at Collabor88 this month. I mean look at that red door! We need more red doors in our lives.

This month’s Collabor88 is inspired by the Odyssey and I am loving the many interpretations that designers are coming up with. I am fondest of those that are less literal – like this mini-dress from Tres Blah. It was a bit short for my taste so I added some leggings from Maitreya … Read more at the source.

My Prerogative

Queen Elizabeth I had it right some 450 years ago when she said “I would not open windows into men’s souls.” We all have opinions and we have a right to them — even if they are stupid, destructive and wrong. I think most of agree on that. Where we diverge is when people opinions move to actions that impinge on other people. That happens all the time in society. Much of politics is about building enough political power to be able to take our opinions and move them into actions that impinge on others whether it’s trying to prevent others from … Read more at the source.

Game Changer

I had my seventh rez-day last month and have been blogging for six and half years, so I think I have a reasonable informed perspective on Second Life® fashion history. It is from that perspective that I think it is worthwhile to recognize the third anniversary of Collabor88 – a fashion even that, to me, is one of the true game changers in SL fashion.

When I began in SL, events were not nearly so integral to fashion marketing as they are now. Of course, there were events. The fashion year was punctuated by a few big annual fundraising fairs … Read more at the source.

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye

I know Gidge blogged this dress from Fission a couple weeks ago. I had already put it on and styled it before I saw her blog post and I have not had the energy to change clothes. I do plan to change clothes sometime today. It’s been two weeks and even pixel clothing can get stale.

Sometimes life can change “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye” and nothing is the same after that. Two weeks ago, that happened to my sister when she learned she had breast cancer. She made me promise not to freak out or … Read more at the source.

My Favorite Hair Fair Bandanas (plus a few I made)

In Events, Fashion, iheartslFeed by Cajsa Lilliehook

Once a year, us non-creators are challenged to toss our bandanas in the ring along with other creators such as Lelutka, TuttiFruti, MiaMai and others. For me, it’s always a fresh reminder of why I am not a creator, but I manage to pull something out my hat (or bandana).

For these pictures, I wore various colors of ISON’s Little Black Dress, this leather trim bodycon dress from ISON. I also used the various colors of Kunglers Luna earrings. The skin is Florentien from imabee that has a porcelain delicacy that i love.

Zaara Is Always Beautiful

I dropped by Zaara to pick up some shoes she had out for the 21 Shoe event on the 21st and, of course, ended up buying so much more. That’s how these events are supposed to work, so I can’t complain.  The highlight for me was this Runa knotted dress. I wore while DJ’ing on Monday night and folks actually teleported to Zaara picked up the dress and came back to the club wearing it.  That’s how gorgeous it is.

The dress is so flattering in shape and color. This salmon color is one of those universally flattering colors … Read more at the source.

Hair Fair Long Hair Part One

In Events, Fashion, iheartslFeed by Cajsa Lilliehook

A few days ago there was a discussion of whether all the iterations of long hair have already been made. In other words, the “there is nothing new under the sun” argument that has been around for millennia. Well, take a look, and see if you think they are all the same.

You know, they say there are only 7 plots – but there are millions of stories.
