Give me flowers, lots of flowers

Pixicat’s Ambrosia dress for Collabor88 is a dream for flower lovers and isn’t that everyone? The HUD lets you change the color of the flowers and the dress. I went for white with black flowers, loving the drama, but I could have chosen pastels, bold red and blue or even white. Each choice gives the dress a different emotional tenor. Then I can change the color of the dress, too. So much choice.

I like the fitted bodice and full skirt. It’ a very feminine and romantic shape.

Isn’t that bodice gorgeous? The sheer sleeves are a bit tricky. In … Read more →

Polygon-a-doodle all the day

Polygonadoodle All Day

This fun dress from SPIRIT is a winner in my book. There is a HUD that allows you to change the top and the skirt independently, so this could be all print, all solid, and mixed as you see here. The gap on the midriff is echoed on the back. I like the retro sensibility of the print.

These shoes from Pure Poison are pure magic. They come with a HUD that allows you to select the color of the base, and the two different lace colors that form front of the shoe. These are not to be missed.

#FlatLarry Visits Campaign Headquarters

Cajsa LilliehookEvents, Fashion, iheartslFeed

I was shocked and heartbroken to hear that Larry Wilmore’s The Nightly Show has been cancelled and will broadcast its final show on Thursday. While I do not always agree with Larry, I respect his humanity so much. He has the decency to be completely serious when the situation calls for it, to take a stand. I respect that. He brings new voices to the air, funny, smart people who will be missed.

So #FlatLarry and I set off for the Second Life version of the Unblackening, checking out the different campaign headquarters. It was uncanny how completely each campaign … Read more →

Brevity is the soul of lingerie

Brevity is the soul of lingerie.

Dorothy Parker always knew exactly what to say and her wit sparkled. I love her quip about lingerie even more than I love this lingerie which is quite a lot.

Brevity is the soul of lingerie.

It’s covered up by the sheer Reva cover-up from Zaara, though bits peek through. Just keeping the front page SFW. This was released at June’s Collabor88 so will be at the store now. The fairy lights are from Floorplan and can be found at Collabor88 for three more days.

a tangle of mysterious prejudices

It is here in my heart and mind and memories

Baiastice Turban at Hair Fair Bandana Booth

The writer Shana Alexander wrote,”Hair brings one’s self-image into focus; it is vanity’s proving ground. Hair is terribly personal, a tangle of mysterious prejudices.” This was brought home to me when visiting my sister who has lost her hair to chemotherapy. Most of the time, she wore a jaunty cap on her head, but she also had a couple wigs. One for each time she got cancer. Get cancer, win a prize! She would dither over what to wear, trying on hats, scarves and her two wigs, turning her head this way and … Read more →

Yes, Joy, a yellow dress is more than a yellow dress.

Cajsa LilliehookEvents, Fashion, iheartslFeed

In the world of safe hues, like black, red and white, yellow shouts: "Look at me. I'm happy!"

My mother always told me to dress up when I felt tired, to dress happy when I was sad, and to recognize that sometimes clothing is more than something to safeguard modesty, provide warmth and protection from the elements, solicit attention, or display personal style and taste. Sometimes it is also a therapeutic carapace, a shell that hides our weaknesses and counters our grief and sorrow with defiant counterpoint.

Joy Sewing of the Houston Chronicle wrote a fun article called Why a yellow dress is more than a yellow dress. Could anyone who is feeling low find a more … Read more →

Long Styles from Hair Fair in the Frame

Hair Fair in the Frame

This new top and skirt from Hucci for Collabor88 is just the ticket for showing off some of the longer hair styles from Hair Fair. It’s short, cheeky and free of collars (or even fabric) to interfere with the hair.

I had college roommates from Malaysia who wore sarongs all the time. It was amazing how active they could be without their sarongs coming loose. They showed me the proper way to wear a sarong and even gave me several sarongs over time, but I never quite got the knack and always worried when I had my hands full … Read more →

Selected Short Cuts and Updos at Hair Fair

Cajsa LilliehookEvents, Fashion, iheartslFeed

Hair Fair opened at midnight and in the overwhelming excitement of “shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen…beautiful hair” it is easy to forget the purpose of Hair Fair. It isn’t actually all about the hair. Well, actually it is, but the hair it is about it not made of pixels. It’s made of love.

Flipping For Hair Fair

Flipping For Hair Fair

Hair Fair 2016 opened at midnight and I was so excited I was flipping with joy. Also because I wanted to show off my lovely espadrilles from Mutresse released at Collabor88. Wow! Autocorrect turns Mutresse into Mutters, now that’s one for the books.

Hair Fair is always the most anticipated fundraising event of the year. There are several reasons for it. First, it’s hair. Second, every year the planning and execution is better than the year before. Now, when you may have thought they reached the pinnacle of perfect planning last year and they could not possibly get better, but … Read more →

Traveling

On the Road Again

I am still traveling, visiting my middle sister, my oldest sister, my younger brother, my nieces, my nephews and all the family. A trip to the family cemetery, the old homestead my grandparents built and of course, feasting everywhere I go. It’s tuckered me out which is why my pixel self is napping at Isle of Peace, a beautiful spot to rest and relax

On the Road Again

All that walking means flats, and Glamistry, the shoemaker known for glam, glam heels that reach the sky got down to earth for a lovely pair of sandals. I added a bit of polish from Flair.… Read more →
