Early Fall Fashion for the Simple Girl

Early fall fashion offers the best clothes, best makeups and a reason to wear boots again \0/. I am pushing it a little as it’s still over 90 degrees here, but the leaves are definitely already turning. It’s beautiful. So here are some early fall looks from a few new releases anchored on simple, fun and staple fashions. The dress… Read more →

And we’re back…

I don’t know about anyone else but I am wrapping up an incredibly intense work week. I couldn’t log in, definitely couldn’t blog, and was asleep by 10:00 most nights only to be back in the office again by 7:00 a.m. the next day 😮 It’s good to be back! Annoyingly, I actually did have a blog all tee’d up… Read more →

Almost too sweet: Dresses that don’t bore me

I knew I would eventually end up doing this post. Despite my boredom around some shorter, “girly” dresses in Second Life, these dresses are all exceptions for me. Why? Extraordinary construction and/or textures you can almost feel. The top of the Dreamy Dress from Pixicat at Collabor88 is textured in a way that I can almost feel the fabric if… Read more →

Almost Imperceptible

Where I live, once the calendar hit about August 6, an almost imperceptible change happened. Lights in my house are now being flipped on around 7:00 rather than 8:00. The air conditioning isn’t running much and the evening air has the slightest hint of a chill. The seasons are signaling a change. It’s my favorite time of year, but so… Read more →

On a Sunday

On a Sunday in the summer I usually do one of two things, housework and shopping for the coming week – or absolutely nothing. I haven’t decided what today will be yet. So I’m kicking it off in Second Life. Fameshed opened up and it seems my brief moratorium of event shopping is over. There is some great inventory, of… Read more →

Tresses

I adore long hair. In the last year I had my stylist cut my hair into a medium bob and I cried for days. #firstworldproblems. It took me a year to grow it out and today it’s finally the perfect length for me. I am kinda obsessed with it actually. In SL of course, perfect hair for the day is… Read more →

Mermaids for Some

Collabor88 for July is open and it’s quite good, particularly if you like mermaids and starfish 😉 For me, I found some great staples for my wardrobe that I will definitely reuse. Though they may have nothing to do with “under the sea,” there’s always something for everyone at this event, not to mention absolutely great prices. I keep crashing… Read more →

Dress Me Up

I have talked about how shorter dresses aren’t always my favorite in SL. It’s basically because there are sooooo many and I guess most people prefer them. But when I look in my inventory, that’s a lot of what’s in my “dresses not gowns” folder (yes, this is a thing). And of course, there are lovely ones that I still… Read more →

Layers

Layers upon layers make up this skirt on the Hand Me Down Ballet dress from Valentina E at Uber. It’s hard not to love, hand me down or not. It’s my pick from Uber this round. I was imagining a young woman having been given this dress, trying it on and remembering when she dreamed of being a prima ballerina,… Read more →

In search of…

For the past 2 years I have chronicled my love affair with the perfect white shirt on my Pinterest board. Nothing is more versatile to me than this one article of clothing that inspires my fashion foundation for nearly every season. Does that foundation translate to SL too? Where “ready to wear” takes on a whole new meaning and creating… Read more →
