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 →

Spare Me

Please spare me any more renditions of laced “gladiator” sandals and “rompers” this season, if possible. I know these seem to be super popular in SL but … there are seriously 30+ different versions out right now and I cannot figure out why? How did I miss the origins of these two polar opposite trends that appear only in Second… Read more →

A bit undone

Today called for something a bit undone. Natural, comfortable and casual; like when everything isn’t firing on all cylinders but is quite happy to be like that. I know I have been MIA this past week or so, but I go through spurts of being inspired and then completely bored by SL fashion. It only takes one small thing to… Read more →

I like to be perfect

“I like to be perfect but I don’t like perfection.” – Alber Elbaz How true, Mr. Elbaz (one of my most favorite designers and fashion personalities – famous for hating to be seen as a “personality” and hating to have his photo taken). What does this have to do with what I am wearing? Well, I guess I find “perfection”… Read more →

My fall palette

My fall palette includes a sweet red lip and smoky eye on one day, and a taupe lip and precise winged eyeliner the next. Glam Affair is one of my favorite skin makers (shocker??!!) – and Aida has really embraced the Catwa line of mesh heads to expand her appliers. I mean, you can find new offerings at virtually every… Read more →

Light Layers

I feel like “light layers” describes so many of my fashion choices. As the seasons change, so many great opportunities to mix a mid-weight shawl with a late summer skirt or a jean jacket with dressier pleats. I love the inherent casual comfort that comes from loose layers that look like afterthoughts, but really aren’t. A lot of what I… Read more →

Fall Booties

Last year’s fall boot for me was definitely more equestrian-inspired. This fall? Ankle boots and booties! I might marry my new Rag & Bone booties IRL and I am almost as impressed with the new SL inventory as well. I used to gravitate to jeans when wearing ankle boots, but I definitely feel like skirts/dresses do the job just as… Read more →

To Curate

To curate: to select, arrange and present. Curating pieces to bring together in my own unique way is my preferred way to express myself from a fashion perspective IRL and in SL. I really appreciate SL creators who offer separates that can be curated as we see fit. For those of you who have been around SL for a long… Read more →

Waning Days of Summer

Almost as quickly as the heatwaves arrived, they went. In their wake, a cool breeze, an almost imperceptible shift in the sunset, and a fleeting greeting from the beginning of the end. The waning days of summer are almost upon us. For your shopping pleasure Fortunately our choices in fashion and beauty in Second Life are not waning in any… Read more →

Layering in the Summer

Layering in the summer is almost unheard of. But, it can be done. It can even be done in Second Life, where it’s significantly harder to layer effectively due to meshes and sizing. For regular readers, if you saw this pleated skirt from Tetra @Uber, you had to know I was going to go nuts for it. Indeed, it’s like… Read more →
