Crisp, Clean, Minimal

It’s one of those days where less is more. Where crisp whites, bright pops of color, and clean, minimal styles win me over. Also winning me over is the new applier from Glam Affair at Collabor88. I like it on my Gwen head best. Tangerine isn’t a terribly popular color in SL I don’t think. I happen to love it,… 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 →

Lara Hurley Skins

I am showing two new system skins from Lara Hurley, Dani and Rie. I still get really excited when a skinner I love puts out new system skins. Until we can all have custom mesh heads or there are more ways to customize the mass market options, there’s still the potential “I look like everyone else” factor. I believe that… Read more →

Beige Isn’t Boring

Beige isn’t boring to me. Not IRL and not in SL, where sometimes subtle colors or designs go overlooked. It’s a staple that can be worn in any season, except maybe the Christmas holidays? Even then…I might still wear it as a winter almost white 🙂 I would just like to say that I especially covet the skirt from OVH… Read more →

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 →

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 →

In Dreams

Like many of you I am sure, I have spent a couple days hunting around the various fantasy events. It’s true I mostly stick to stylings I am comfortable with but I will always collect beautiful pieces, regardless of period or style. I find this dress and headpiece by Zenith to be remarkably pretty. This is one of the commons,… 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 →

Luxury is…

…the ease of a T-shirt in a very expensive dress, said Karl Lagerfeld. This unique (and expensive) dress from GizzA will be worn only for you all because I would have nowhere to wear it in SL. I am not wearing the hydrangea chest accoutrement it also comes with because I looked like Zsa Zsa Gabor, although it’s quite spectacular.… Read more →
