The Rainbow

The Rainbow

The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain. ~ Dolly Parton

The Rainbow

Sometimes a rainbow is the goal, not the gold, and this dress from Dainie Fraina proves my point with its rainbow colorwash and great off-the-shoulder style. Dainie, who is known for her African-inspired fashions, loves color and finds anyway she can to get as much as into her fashion without going overboard. This time she got every color in the rainbow with a little green removable tie at the waist.

I am carrying a cute texture-change handbag from the queen of cute and inexpensive accessories, Renee Harvy, which matches my darling wedges from Ariadna Garrigus, which she also features in brown and black.

The Rainbow

Peachiemuah has released this new skin, named after a certain famous blonde I am guessing, with beautiful features, full lips, a fine blush to her lips and a little darkness around her eyes (as if she had been partying a little too much maybe). I love Truth Hawks’ style with waves surrounding two beautifully curved braids that taper down to nothing. Sometimes Truth makes the most romantic hair, and this certainly fits that description.

Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum.

Stepping Out

“Another belief of mine: that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.” ~ Margaret Atwood

Stepping Out

Today is Margaret Atwood’s birthday—she is 74. She is one of my favorite authors and has shown that one’s light doesn’t necessarily burn out as she becomes older and more successful—it can burn brightly, provocatively and thoughtfully. She writes literary fiction, critical thinking, and science fiction. I am particularly fond of her science fiction work, which seems to have become her genre in the past few years. I recently just read her two latest offerings, which are shorts offered via amazon.com for the Kindle–I’m Starved for You and Choke Collar—and they are witty and edgy dystopian chapters in a serial novel—a bit kinky, a bit surprising and a bit funny in a sort of dark way. I would want to be Margaret Atwood when I grow up if I had the least bit of chance.

Stepping Out

But no, I am simply a fashion blogger and what you see here is the combination of a few elements from great SL designers, including a mesh dress from AvaGardner Kungler, showcasing her ease with elegance and color mixing. The assymmetrical silhouette of this short skirt lends it an air of insouciance. I accessorized with a darling clutch from Renee Harvy and these charming pumps from Betty Doyle, featured at the Zodiac, with a curling tongue on the vamp.

My hair is one of Queue Marlowe’s newest, an update on the Harper model, now including sculpties and a slightly different shape. I am hoping to see this around the grid more—it’s darling. My skin is one of Aida Ewing’s beautiful glowing skins.

The title of this post, incidentally, is from the book, The Handmaid’s Tale. “Don’t let the bastards get you down.” It’s a phrase I have internalized.

Scootin’

20 06 2011

Scootin

Summer vacation is the perfect time to get the scooter out and run around town.

Scootin

Naturally, a girl wears something casual—shorts, a little tank top, flats. My tank top is retired as far as I know—a cute little striped one from Juju Armidi, who is wandering the grid and making content under an alias, I am sure. My shorts were Rob Moonite’s offering for 50L Friday. Rob is great for making items that can be worn by girls or guys and these shorts are no exception. My shoes are an inexpensive pair from Renee Harvy, who makes some really nicely priced shoes in great styles.

Scootin

My skin is Mallory Cowen’s newest—a fresh face for women who want to be on the grid with a youthful look. There’s no pretense to this skin—it’s simply young and clean with a much more subtle glow than Mallory’s previous skins. This is not about the makeup or the fashion—this is about dressing down and being casual. The eyebrows took a bit for me to get used to—I like mine more refined and groomed but they actually are a bonus. This skin is not like all the others and this young face is fresh and beautiful.

I wear a new ponytail hair from Truth Hawks with streaking and color change ponytail bands. And I have been holding this calculator watch forever. It’s so dorky it’s cool. And don’t you love my posing scooter? I tripped across this in my sim wanderings. Suri Yangtz loaded it with lots of fun poses (more than you see here) and it comes in five colors—all for the price of one.

Scootin

A visit to the bookstore, pick up some spices for dinner tonight, get those knitting needles I need… errands around town ;)

I Think Pink

3 04 2011

“The very pink of perfection.” ~ Oliver Goldsmith

I Think Pink

Saya Littlething, the creator of Schoen, decided to contribute to Fashion for Life because her father is being treated for cancer of the large intestine. Recently, the earthquake and tsunami in Japan affected her family as well as they live near the epicenter.

Saya continued to support Fashion for Life because cancer was her main concern and the main thing touching her life, earthquake and tsunami notwithstanding. Despite the trouble in her country, she persisted with Fashion for Life, and she has continued to do so by offering this cute jacket as a donation item in her store with all proceeds going directly to the American Cancer Society. Her shop is full of cute items, many of them considerably well crafted and great for casual wear for men and women.

I Think Pink

I wear with shoes from Renee Harvy, another FFL offering at her store and skin from Monicuzza Babenco, recently offered at The Dressing Room. My pants are from Anessa Stine, model and now designer, who has taken the DCNY label under her wing and is filling the store with new creations weekly.

Finally, my hair is from the always friendly chiaki Xue, who partnered up with mappy Handrick of ARAI to make this cute style. I saw it on a man the other day and it wasn’t bad, but I sure like it for a girl, especially with its color change hat.

Spoiled

29 03 2011

Now, you probably think I get a lot of swag. I do get a good share, but not always. Fashion for Life nearly broke me. I don’t think I have ever seen my linden balance this low. I was spoiled by choice not by gifts. (If you ever wonder what I have received as a gift and what I have purchased myself, everything with “*” behind it was given to me, as stated in my “About”.)

There were so many freakin’ fantastic things at Fashion for Life—many of them exclusives—I couldn’t help myself as I was.. you know.. inspecting the sims and stuff. Turns out some of these designers have generously placed their donation vendors at their own stores, so I can still show you these items and you can still grab them at the stores (and do some other shopping because, frankly, some of these these designers are undiscovered gems). All funds will still go to Relay for Life’s general fund; all are directly given to the American Cancer Society.

Spoiled

Take this darling outfit from Zaira Pelazzi. It’s simply system pieces—a jacket, top, and pants—but it’s so nicely done it doesn’t need anything else. Zaira is a new designer on the scene, offering items 199L or below—simple system pieces without a lot of elaborate adornment. For the avatar on a budget (uh, like me right now), her stuff is a great choice. (She offers men’s too.)

Spoiled

The boots are another budget winner from Renee Harvy. I love Renee’s work and her spirit. She offers great shoes and boots at a very winning price—usually about 25L a pair. How can you beat that?! Her items are not elaborate—no menus or color changers or fancy toes. But sometimes all you need are a pair of cute pink boots without all the bells and whistles.

Pick up both these items at their stores and give the American Cancer Society a little love.

Spoiled

My skin is a beauty from Tuli Asturias with lipstick. I know I have not shown Tuli a lot lately, and it’s not been fun because I love Tuli’s work. This includes the great lipstick layer that makes this pink outfit pop. My sexy streaked hair is from Truth Hawks.

My jewelry is a punch of couture candy from Dita Tran. It seems like too much when you put it on, but once you’ve outfitted yourself, you find out that it is the over-the-top that completes this outfit. This jewelry actually makes sense from a woman like Dita, who is, like this jewelry, bold and fun.

Spoiled

If you need reminding about why it’s important to give to the American Cancer Society, listen to this week’s podcast from The Moth—the comedian Anthony Griffith speaking about the death of his daughter from cancer.

:. WoE .: at Fashion for Life

14 03 2011

Dick Wiesel has been bringing sexy casual to SL for three years, giving girls and guys the kind of grungy burnished look that takes them out of the fantasy ballrooms and plunks them into a more revved up real life.

Woe at Fashion for Life

Did I mention sexy? Dick seems to have some secret sauce in his clothes that he adds that makes them simmer with a sort of understated sexiness. Yes, there are bared midriffs but rarely do you see something overtly skin baring.

Woe at Fashion for Life

It’s as if Dick’s fantasy of sexy is the girl next door, amped up a little with some grunge, some complex textures and some easy casual. I mean, Dick’s favorite girl looks sexy in sweats and a loose tank top.

Woe at Fashion for Life

Dick also offers some great looks for men, along the same line, and he will be showing all this and FIVE new offerings at Fashion for Life, which is open NOW. Dick generously and unhesitatingly offered to sponsor a sim, offering his brand name and an ample donation to support the American Cancer Society. The sim he sponsors, Shulman, has been lauded by Tyr Rozenblum as “bad ass.” Come see it and all the great stores on it and the other eight sims.

Falln Angel Creations at Fashion for Life

12 03 2011

Azriel Demain is not a stranger to Fashion for Life. For many years running, he has contributed generously of his time, content and donations. This year he graciously opted to sponsor a sim. He explained it to me in a chat:

My RL family has had quite a few struggles with cancer, and my close Aunt beat breast cancer just last year! I think she was the first in my family to actually win her battle with cancer, she lost her hair but she didn’t lose her life. And now her hair is growing back curly *chuckles* So, I am all for events like this :)

FallnAngels Creations at Fashion for Life

Azriel again has outdone himself with his creations. Offering a wide variety of pieces exclusive to Fashion for Life, Azriel gives his best talents to his creations when he donates them for Fashion for Life on behalf of the American Cancer Society. His rich textures, complex but perfect silhouettes, wonderful prim work all add up to fantastical combinations for a fantasy world.

FallnAngels Creations at Fashion for Life

Every single outfit you see here is an exclusive for Fashion for Life. That’s how good Azriel is and how important this is to him.

FallnAngels Creations at Fashion for Life

Azriel was kind enough to give me some information:

FallnAngel Creations was created in July of 2006, the same week that its owner and sole creator, Azriel Demain, came into world. An artist by profession, Azriel used his years of knowledge in photoshop and his self-admitted tendency to “never leave well enough alone” to create items that he could not find elsewhere in Second Life. He started off with a small parcel in Euiryeong and a handful of items, his store sharing the plot with his home. By December of 2006 he bought his first sim, Falln Sanctuary. Time flew as his productivity and skill level continued to increase, and soon he was able to move his main store from Sanctuary to its own sim; eventually acquiring two more store sims. He moved his skins, hair and other avatar appearance items to Falln Sanitarium, and his furniture, decor and full buildings found a home on Falln Amusements. FallnAngel Creations has become well known in Second Life for Azriel’s singular vision, productivity, and attention to detail. Whether you seek disturbing horror items, colourful kimono, inventive silks, or something to make your dream a reality in world, you are sure to find it at Falln. Azriel’s talent and sheer range of selections is sure to draw attention and compliments.

FallnAngels Creations at Fashion for Life

When you go shopping at Fashion for Life, you will find yourself so immersed in the beautiful sims and great shopping that you might forget why over 200 people volunteered considerable amounts of time and skill to be here. They have not forgotten, however. They know 100% of the funds from their donations go directly to the American Cancer Society though the avatar relayforlife AmericanCancer.

Join us at Fashion for Life, going on NOW through March 22.

Kouse Singh at Fashion for Life

23 02 2011

While our mission for Fashion for Life is to have fun and help raise funds for the American Cancer Society, for some of our participants, it’s a much more personal event.

Kouse Singh has always participated in Fashion for Life. She offered a statement for the blog so people could understand why she participates. Kouse says:

Every year when what was the Relay for Life Clothing Fair, and what is now Fashion for Life, comes around, I always make time to support this cause, which is dear to me.

In the span of my life, I’ve lost many a family member to cancer, and each time one of those souls passes, the tragedy of it touches those of us who remain with much grief, and sorrow, wishing it could have been beaten.

More than half of my own family members have been diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, some of these on more than one occasion. My prayer is that through concerted efforts, such as Relay for Life, one day there will be a world without cancer. How much less pain, worry, and fear there would be, without this cruel, indiscriminate disease.

Kouse also offered that cancer is something that touches many people’s lives, around the world. These photos show Kouse’s sneak previews of her dresses and jewelry to be offered at Fashion for Life. The income made from these items will go entirely to the American Cancer Society.

Kouse Singh at Fashion for Life

This collection of dresses and jewelry will be offered by Kouse exclusively to benefit Relay for Life. They will be first offered at Fashion for Life.

Kouse Singh at Fashion for Life

As with all Kouse’s work, they show off her vision of a beautiful fairy-like world where women are garbed in formal and ethereal attire. Her gowns take inspiration from history and fantasy with richly made textures and prim pieces delicately placed just so to build a beautiful silhouette.

Kouse Singh at Fashion for Life

Kouse will also be offering this exquisite set of jewelry complete with bracelets that I do not show and two other smaller crowns tilted left or right so they can be worn with other hair.

Kouse Singh at Fashion for Life

It is our pleasure to host so many prolific and talented desigenrs such as Kouse, who are dedicating their craft and labor to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.

Make sure you attend the Fashion for Life, March 12-22, SL’s biggest fashion fair on 9 sims hosted by the American Cancer Society and SL’s Relay for Life!

Inventory Clean Up

23 01 2011

I won’t get into the horrifying mess that is my inventory. Notecards strewn all about, pushpins from landmarks stuck in wrong places, a grossly unsorted texture folder, and my animations and poses…? Really bad.

Inventory Clean Up

I did a post about this heinous task before (which I call “Inventoil”) and unfortunately, I will not delight you with the oddities I found in my inventory this time (of which there are quite a few). I just want to show you that I do not always wear an evening gown (despite rumors to the contrary)—especially when cleaning inventory.

Needless to say I threw some things on but in SL, you still look gorgeous! Take, for example, this flowered cardigan from Maya Levane. With its combo of a cleverly done system jacket and sculpties, it’s an ideal over-shirt with rolled up sleeves (for getting to work). Loose fitting jeans from Alla Ruff make bending over and picking up packed up prims heavy with poses easy. I did allow myself to sneak out to Renee Harvy’s store for some comfy shoes and I hit pay dirt with these cute little moccasins (decorated with leaves). They were only 20L!

Inventory Clean Up

In all cases, my Truth and Tuli folders are well-sorted, so I was able to whip out this lovely skin from Tuli, which is a remake of her Eva line, and a loosely-gathered ponytail from Truth Hawks. They both make it simple to make a good looking style quickly and easily.

Inventory Clean Up

The question is this: how many copies of this thing called “object” do I really need?

Ugh!

10 01 2011

I am working on a project–soon you will all hear about it—but the proverbial uh spackle is hitting the fan in my mind. I am almost done but wondering what I have forgotten, what is missing?

Ugh!

So this is an easy outfit for rolling up my sleeves and getting the work done. My t-shirt is a cute little thing from jomatshere Allen, who has a lot of these cute little things in her store. My jeans are quick and cute from Anyusha Lilienthal, who has a whole set of fabulous jeans at her store. I love my cute comfy little espadrilles from Renee Harvy, who makes it so easy.

Ugh!

Finally, a subtly pretty make up from Tuli Asturias, part of her newly redone collection. Tuli still rocks the grid with her skins and I look forward to more. Finally, I have a beautiful necklace from Damanios Thetan. It finishes my look and classes up my otherwise casual demeanor.

Ugh!

The stress is a little high but I won’t let it show!
