Editorial: Transactional Fashion?

This is an opinion piece that’s been rattling around my head. I have attempted to put it out there without making it War and Peace length. I very much welcome comments and all different opinions! Think about how you shop for your clothes, shoes or accessories IRL. Those brands that you’re attached to and keep coming back to. You could… Read more →

Chignons and Updos

One of the favorite ways to wear my hair is up or back, casually in a chignon or more formally in an updo on special occasions. I put together a small compilation featuring some of my favorite new “ups” available at Hair Fair and elsewhere. I’m also wearing three different mesh heads, and had so much fun playing around with… Read more →

Belleza Mesh Body: Fresh Start

So as we know, Belleza updated their mesh body and included a lot of tweaks to their HUD, as well as MANY great new features. I was looking for a few very key improvements, so all the extras are super welcome. For me, the most important updates I was looking for were: Better neck skin matching with their own skins… Read more →

Drifting into Summer

Here in Boston, summer has arrived. I’m celebrating with colors that are maybe less than summery :p. Like I talked about here, I’m very into things I can break up and wear as I like. This handkerchief top from miss chelsea is simple and very well done, and I love that it’s not attached to anything (although there are bottoms… Read more →

Silke from The Skinnery

I was hoping for LeLutka head appliers from The Skinnery and Silke arrived yesterday at The Chapter Four second anniversary. I LOVE <3!! The Silke appliers can be worn with any of your LeLutka Mesh heads. I am wearing them here on Stella, Lotte and Karin for example. Silke creates a really “full” face if that makes sense. The appliers… 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 →

90 Days Later

~90 days and 60+ posts after I returned to blogging after many years away, I am on the verge of doing the first quarter purge of my inventory. I want to keep it at 20k or less. This is a spectacular goal considering I used to hover around 100k when I was blogging before. The only things in my inventory… Read more →

Skin Fair

I remember Skin Fair from way back when. Probably different organizers now, I really don’t know. Anywayyyyy, in classic Gillian style, I rushed in and out. I picked up 1000 demos (I only know because my inventory went up by a huge amount) and purchased a few of my “sure things” from Glam Affair, The Skinnery and Belleza. By now,… Read more →

Covet

I coveted this hat from the moment I saw it. The perfect cloche ladies hat in a delicate cream. I am a diehard Downton Abbey fan, so this was not an option not to have. I miss Sybil :/ I did not style it in period 1920s obviously. And normally you would see a tighter hair underneath, but I wanted… Read more →

Rounding it up

Some of the items I have newly acquired all in one place! With a bunch of new events coming up (I am looking at you, Uber and Arcade), I wanted to make sure some of these special items didn’t get lost in my inventory, which this time around, I am working very hard to keep very small. I am truly… Read more →
