Pale Dogwood

Does anyone else follow Pantone’s “color of the year” ? They do such a good job of marketing but did you know they do this for seasons too? I happened to notice today as I was looking up paint colors, that one of my favorite colors – the one I normally refer to as “blush” – is actually “pale dogwood.”… Read more →

Freshly Squeezed

See? It’s not that I am color averse, it’s that there aren’t enough pretty and feminine dresses in tangy colors in Second Life. I pretty much love everything about this freshly squeezed look. I even let my avatar smile 😮 Also, may I just say that I rarely buy fatpacks – instead, I like to pay more than the cost… Read more →

Mean Business

If you’ve been around SL for a longggg while, you might remember Shai of Casa del Shai releasing a suit set themed, “Mean Business.” It was incredibly well made and keep in mind, these were the days long before mesh. Imagine the constraints on an artist only being able to work with the system avatar?!!? Textures really had to be… Read more →

Unconventional Beauty

I love that there’s a perfectly matched hairbase available for every single tone available. Whimsical is large and takes a while to traverse, plus it… Read more →

Strike My Fancy

Quick on the heels of my very short 2016 wish list, I have been sniffing around the events in the new year, looking for items that really strike my fancy. Oddly enough, only a few things have grabbed me. Some great hairs, select appliers, and accessories here and there. Have the winter doldrums stolen my zest for shopping? No, I… Read more →

Truly, Madly, Deeply

This is me experimenting with darker toned skins. I love them. There is nothing more beautiful to me than very dark and very fair skin tones. Being extremely fair skinned IRL, I harbor an especially strong attraction to darker tones. And lucky me, there are some absolutely beautiful options all around the grid if you favor a truly, madly, deeply… Read more →

Some Structure

I am a big fan of structure when it comes to fashion. Even on a casual day, I often lean towards a tailored or structured look and then add softness as I go. I found some items in Second Life that I was drawn to and that do structure really well. Back in the day (I can say that seeing… Read more →
