This post is inspired by Olivia Rodrigo, an artist I’m obsessed with. I wish she was around when I was a teenager. She describes all those angry feelings about unrequited love so well! I watched the VMAs last night and she was absolutely incredible. It’s true I had no idea who most of the other performers were, but still a good show. “Ok Boomer.” Olivia is only 18!!
Elsewhere, I had hoped to come back from a week away to a million amazing fashion releases in Second Life. But instead, I picked through a few things here and there, some from FLF (which I was delighted to see still had many items out when I got home late Sunday!). One of the things I did find and love at C88 was this sweet little top from Pixicat. Although, I had to get the fatpack just to get the basic peach color I wanted. ./rolleyes I also picked up the whole pack of shoulder blazers from C’est la vie at the Warehouse Sale for a ridiculously good price. Love these!
While I’m not quite ready to pumpkin spice everything just yet, I am happily celebrating the beginning of September. Traditionally a great month for fashion IRL – buuuuutttttt perhaps less so these days in SL? Maybe later in the month it will pick up for me. Until then, I continue to collect some really great BoM skins for LeLutka Evo-X. No shortage of good inventory there!
I did find this great corset fatpack from (fd) – available in both Perky and Petite sizes – for a great price @Fameshed. I have stopped buying anything that doesn’t have petite sizing options. Sadly for now, that leaves out several brands I typically love to wear. Hopefully they will update in the future.
I’m also struggling to enjoy necklaces that aren’t fitted for a specific body. Kibitz necklaces – which I have blogged dozens of times – no longer fit my avatar at all. But I still love the styles so I try to fit them to make them work. I suck at that.
I’ll be away all this week and maybe even next week, depending on the weather. The beach in early fall is the BEST even when I am working.
I had such high hopes for styling post-Uber (and a few other trips to various events). But unfortunately, this is where I ended up. Nothing really wrong with it (cute, cute, cute) – but cumulatively, nothing really right either. The two things I am most excited about are my new (NO) “Summer 2 Fall” almond nails and BoM skin from Not Found, perhaps aptly named for my inspiration level 😉
A closer look at “Fancy”, available at Uber. I picked her up in a darker shade than intended but I guess with summer making its last gasp, it makes sense. I absolutely marvel at the level of detail and glow on the skin, thanks to the LeLutka Evo-X technology. If you haven’t yet upgraded, it’s so worth it!
I did pick up some other items at Uber that I know I will use, so I should be back soon-ish.

Here I am, weeks after declaring my unmotivated level had reached record levels, and I am only blogging my avatar’s head. Because I “I have nothing to wear.” I haven’t visited Uber yet and I did see something from Coco that might suit me, so we’ll see.
Until then, I’m only obsessed with this skin from Insol. I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!! The only problem is – the body skin doesn’t really match the head skin. I’m sorry, it just doesn’t. I added one of those lifesaving neck blend layers from The Skinnery but in some settings, it’s still offensively mismatched on my avatar. I pretty much give up on why – at least for me – there is a such a difference between body skins and BoM head skins. /shrug
