January Thaw

TGIF! Much of the Eastern US is experiencing a short but very dramatic January thaw. At least for 48 hours before the next arctic freeze sets in. I took this opportunity to go a little ragtag with my Friday style, since I don’t have to bundle up quite as much. I love pulling beautiful mangos, mints and cherry reds from… Read more →

TGIFriday

TGIF! TGIfriday! I have been meaning to talk about the upcoming changes at fri.day. No, not this, my favorite day of the week; but the brand in Second Life, best known currently for its 24×7 packs of colorful, often whimsical shoes. Soon, it will be officially “friday” (no dot) and that is the least of the changes. As such, my… Read more →

Today’s Restyle

Today’s style called for a complete restyle of these lived-in flared jeans I’ve had for years. With newness from Stories & Co. by Flowey, I love the casual, later summer look. It was not lost on me how the new Annabelle Bodysuit @Uber comes in a perfect nude fatpack. In my mind it will be the “Gillian pack” for how… Read more →

When in Paris

I mentioned I am soon off to London and then Paris. First for work; then for fun! I have to tell you, I am not particularly stressed about how dangerous it may be to travel these days (I mean, you gotta live your life!) but I am concerned about my ability to pack effectively. What I wear while roaming the… Read more →

Sunday shopping in both lives

I am leaving in a few weeks for London and then Paris \o/ so I spent today doing some Sunday shopping. I meant to post this before I left but…oops! In Second Life, I am wearing the still relatively new Bento head from fiore, coupled with a fresh new skin from The Skinnery. I would *love* to see an applier… Read more →

Foundational Staples

I quickly browsed the wares at Uber this morning and at first I was like, “meh…” But looks can sometimes be deceiving – at least in this case. I probably walked away with more foundational staples than I have from any event in a while. Foundational staples meaning items I will use over and over (and I really will…I mean,… Read more →

Palatable Florals

I’m not a big pattern or florals person. I would pick a solid over a pattern 6 out of 7 days of the week. But I love this floral print dress from Valentina E. For me, this is an example of palatable florals. It’s also one of my absolute favorite silhouettes, form fitting and feminine. It’s a quick break in… Read more →

Brows

These brows. Just stop it, ok? They’re so amazing. I recently had my own RL brows microbladed. So worth it! By the way, if you like the bold brows look in SL, then be sure to also play around with the eyebrows included with your LeLutka bento head, because they are completely wild and awesome too. These brows can be… Read more →

My own harajuku style

Full Harajuku style isn’t something I play with often, but I do love to “Gillianize” trends to make them suit me personally. Have you seen Baiastice’s new Tattoo dress? It has koi on it. I love it, and especially the bright, urban colors and sheer arms and bodice. OK I “Gillianized” the look a bit – a lot, as I… Read more →

Good Bones

My grandmother always used to say, “as long as you start with good bones.” She didn’t just mean my cheekbones hidden by baby fat at the time; she meant the “bones” of everything – fabric, fashion, houses, gardens, and especially horses. Good Bones Meaning, as long as the foundation is solid, the rest was immaterial. I am not sure what… Read more →
