Variety is my spice of SLife

For me, experimenting with fashion and beauty in SL is very exciting. It allows me to really stretch and create a variety of styles that I find inspiring and beautiful. Adrian says, “well it looks good but it’s not you.” But you see, it is me. Ultimately every style on my blog is “me” in the realest sense in fact.… Read more →

#LoveWins

Here in the US, we had a momentous decision to make marriage legal for every person, regardless of sexual orientation. While we lag behind 17 other countries (I think), nothing has ever made me more proud of my country and more proud to be American. Love Wins! This has nothing to do with what I am blogging today, but I… Read more →

Making a Statement

I was inspired by several items I have collected over this last week to focus a post on making a statement. My necklace from Shi is very much a statement necklace, although I have done a masterful job of hiding some of it :p I also love the new ring set from ieQED at We <3 RP. You don’t have… Read more →

Pretty. Simple.

Pretty. Simple. Two words that I like best about all these pieces. Nothing is overdone; nothing is too fussy. You don’t even need shoes to create a feel for the dress from [sYs] available at On9. This trench from Emery is the best I have seen in SL since my return. Obviously I love the color (and all the colors… Read more →

Celoe

When you’re just coming back to SL, you don’t know who anyone is in terms of cross brands. You just enjoy whatever is out there and quality always comes to the front. I have worn many items from Celoe and had no idea there was any relation to a brand – in various forms – I have enjoyed for nearly… Read more →

Dressing Down

How people dress on their down days is pretty interesting. I mean, if you think about it, it’s easy to “dress up” when you have say, a set dress, pair of shoes and jewelry in a ready made look. It’s when we have time off – and can dress however we want – that often really shows a style preference.… Read more →

Wicked short

As we say in Boston, these dresses are wicked shaht!! That’s actually “short” outside of Boston 🙂 I don’t know about anyone else, but I definitely cannot get away with wearing short skirts like this outside of my own house IRL. I do love them in SL, though! I had a bunch of different snapshots ready with more detail, but… Read more →

To top it off

Hats. I love wearing hats IRL. In SL? Very hit or miss. Unless they come with the hair (and even sometimes when they do), they can be hard to work with. And when they come rigged to the hair, options for styling are very specifically limited to the type of hair. However for me, anything is better than the blockiness… Read more →

All Business

Back when I started SL in 2006, there was a big movement to bring RL corporations into the “game.” I guess it was mildly successful for a short time, but in the end, it wasn’t really a business platform. During that time though, there was all sorts of “business wear” (a lot of it was terrible – made by these… Read more →

Dreamy

Dreamy is a bit how I feel styling these pieces. The feeling you get from everything – the casual cargo pants, the undone hair, the loose fitting tunic. And of course the jewels. The magnificent jewels from Mandala, which I chose to dress down. Pretty dreamy. The cargo pants are by a designer totally new to me – Addams. They’re… Read more →
