One puff, please

I’m not usually a big fan of the puff. You know, the puffy sleeves, puffy shoulders type of fashion. It reminds me of the 80s and not in a fond remembrance kind of way. But one puff? I’ll manage with one puff, please. Especially when it looks like this. I decided to go much heavier on my accessories for this… Read more →

back at it

Back at it

Andddddddd I’m back. Back at it as they say. Admittedly, it didn’t take me long to slip back into “Simollian” (Simone + Gillian). But as fail as I felt about it at first – I lasted, what, 2 days? – I realized, it’s perfectly expected to be back where I feel most like me. Isn’t that the point? It’s hard… Read more →

This is my RBF

This is my RBF. Yes, Resting Bitch Face. But it doesn’t have to be, as you probably know if you have been following the release of the new Bento head from LAQ. In typical Gillian style though, I really have to let new animations grow on me. Sometimes they never do. Or sometimes they become as core to the head… Read more →

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 →

Elaborate Embellishments: A Bag Worth Buying

I can remember a time when I didn’t put a lot of thought into using bags for my blogs in Second Life. This was back in the days long before mesh, hell, before anything other than carrying what were essentially shoe boxes on your arm. No really. It’s so nice to be able to not just blog, but regularly actually… 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 →

Whimsical

Have you all been to the new event, Whimsical? If not, you can find Miss Elika’s newest hair offering there. Sofia’s a gacha but you really can’t go wrong with any of her packs tbh. 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 →
