Light Layers

I feel like “light layers” describes so many of my fashion choices. As the seasons change, so many great opportunities to mix a mid-weight shawl with a late summer skirt or a jean jacket with dressier pleats. I love the inherent casual comfort that comes from loose layers that look like afterthoughts, but really aren’t. A lot of what I… Read more →

Fall Booties

Last year’s fall boot for me was definitely more equestrian-inspired. This fall? Ankle boots and booties! I might marry my new Rag & Bone booties IRL and I am almost as impressed with the new SL inventory as well.

Graceful Ribbons

The romantic in me will always be searching for tulle skirts, and tasteful, crystal beading, and graceful ribbons.

I mean, it’s not lost on me that we’re in a virtual world and all, but um, not every woman wants to wear everything in ultrateenymini sizing…I’m just sayin’.… Read more →

Unconventional Beauty

I talk a lot about interesting beauty, where imperfections replace perfection, “flaws” are the best part, and unconventional beauty trumps all. With literally thousands of “beautiful” items available every day in Second Life, I think a lot about how to bring my true self into my styles in this virtual world where we can be perfect all the time if… Read more →

The Shift

We didn’t have much of a winter in Boston this year, which is fine, considering last year. The shift has started though – and temperatures are expected to top 70 degrees here this week 😮 In honor of climate change, I am breaking out shorts very early. It’s not quite warm enough for this today IRL but soon, very soon.… Read more →
