I will admit that I read US Weekly and People when I go to the dentist or the doctor. Frankly, it’s about the only thing that gets me there—the shiny new copies of the newest dish on the stars. One of the most interesting columns I have seen in these mags is the one about how stars are just like us. “They wash their dog, just like us! They shop at Whole Foods, just like us! They spend $50,000 on diamonds, just like us!” Sometimes the object of their attention is dressed incognito, especially walking the streets of Manhattan, simply out shopping or returning a book to the library. What makes them different still is that they are  casually wearing incredibly expensive designer boots and people are snapping photos of them.


Our celebrity has a gorgeous poncho-styled overcoat that looks like she gotit  from an artisan in Taos. Made by Khea Karas, this beautiful mix of embroidery and knitting creates the drama our star incognito adores without showing off her signature figure. Underneath she wears a cherry red turtleneck from Nyte Caligari, which she just got on discount at Nyte’N’Day’s end of the year sale because the stars like sales just like we do. Her leggings are pure designer (none of that Walmart stuff for her) made by LeeZu Baxter.


With a Nena Janus skin, our star can rest assured she looks as beautiful as she needs to, even without a lot of make-up. Her DIY hairstyle from Lamb Bellic—is that a wig? Huge sunglasses, tinted red to coordinate with her outfit, are a fashion do from Polyester Partridge.


Finally, her boots. Yes, stars rush to Elikapeka Tiramisu’s sim to snatch up her latest boots, just like us. With their leather legwarmer styling and stylish buckle, these boots reveal our star to be a woman with discriminating taste.


What about SLebrities? I am partnered to one—Callie Cline. I have a secret for you–she walks around bald and once in a while she is a cloud–just like us ;)

What to Wear to Burning Life, Part 4

You see a running theme here? Gonna keep banging on it til Burning Life is over and y’all have visited! I really enjoy Burning Life because it gives me a chance to mix up my wardrobe and dress up and do some wild things. This is the sweet, unpainted, unparticled side of me.

What to Wear to Burning Life, Part 4

Here you see me at Damanios Thetan’s Burning Life Temple build, an incredibly gorgeous place that I hope finds a home when BL is over.

I started with a skirt from LeeZu Baxter and a top from Julia Soothsayer. I will admit I got this particular combo from my friend Cali Rahal, who has scoured the grid for coordinating and hot-looking outfits.

What to Wear to Burning Life, Part 4

I added a cute sash from Khea Karas to complete the sort of updated earth mother look I was after. I don’t show enough dust on the hem of the skirt—pretend it’s there.

What to Wear to Burning Life, Part 4

With the ensemble, I added the details—a cute ponytaiul from Elikapeka Tiramisu (hair up and out of the face in the wind), big ethnic earrings from Zaara Kohime, and a fine tattoo from Jesseaitui Petion. And may I say, thank you, Jesse, for making a simple realistic tattoo—not all of us want to have them painted all over our bodies. Sometimes a pure heart with wings is all a girl needs. (And yeah, I have boots on under here. Really!)

What to Wear to Burning Life, Part 3

Burning Life has started this year to much acclaim and cheering. I have to hand it to the organizers I know—Talia Tokugawa, Doctor Gascoigne, White Lebed, Dusty Linden, Calamity Hathaway, and all those Rangers. They have been working HARD to bring Burning Life to you—most of it volunteer time. If you knew the background of some of these folks, you would know the best have been working for you.

What to Wear to Burning Life

That being said, I try to attend BL in the spirit of Burning Man, so I *try* to keep my stilettos at home (cuz walking the playa in stilettos seems sort of silly, no?). So you see I am wearing shorts from AvaGardner Kungler, a vest from Emery (part of a larger outfit I bought), the all important socks with boots, these from Kaejo DeSilva and my very favorite boots from Fallingwater Cellardoor. And Fallingwater also made the pretty bangles.

What to Wear to Burning Life

The best part of the outfit, of course, is the BL Lizard, made by MenuBar Memorial for last year’s Burning Life. Thanks again, MenuBar. This little gem does everything but the kitchen sink, including smoking a pipe and drinking from a plastic cup.

Chicken Dinner

The chicken thing in SL has gotten out of hand. I found out one of the residents on my sim, Vanguard, was raising a flock of them. I stomped over to Iono’s land to see what he was up to. Chickens kind of creep me out.

Turns out Iono has not been very lucky with the chickens. There is a lot of barbecue chicken to be found at Vanguard.

Chicken Dinner

Here I am noshing on some barbecue chicken that Iono has left out. I am not sure if it goes with Chianti, but I am not complaining. I am all about eating them rather than raising them.

Chicken Dinner

Iono has made a beautiful space on Vanguard. I decided to wander around and take photographs of this darling outfit there. Khea Karas makes versatile and cute clothes for Malt. Here I am showing her Cargo Shorts, constructed with sculpty cargo pockets, and the matching striped tank top. She even sells the cute scarf that goes with it.

Chicken Dinner

I feel I should write an ode to JB Gazov. He makes the shoes that women want. This pair of Studded Wedge Sandals is funky and fun. As usual, it comes with his great color changing hud. I have the color changing pair here—for a low price you get eight colors, all in one shoe. You have to love that. (I secretly have a huge crush on JB… shhh.)

Chicken Dinner

I wore this top notch style from Aemilia Case. She gave it out in a 50L pack for her birthday, bless her heart. Her hair has great textures and very cute styles not always found at other places.

Photographed on location at Vanguard.

Mmmm! Tastes like chicken!
