One of the members of our fashion bloggers group, Casja, has been literally “away from keyboard” taking care of personal RL stuff. Casja has always been a cheerful and knowledgeable contributor to our group as she is a prolific blogger herself at It’s Only Fashion. Her positive attitude, thoughtful commentary, and kind and generous demeanor has always made SL a better place. Her absence was truly felt. The frequent reports from her BFF Gidge in Plurk assured us she was coming back soon, and now she is back, all I can say is “Welcome Back, Casja!”
While Casja can’t dance in RL yet, I hope she finds an opportunity to do so on SL soon. Her friend Maht (whom she introduced me to) will be having his annual 26.2 hour Mahrathon to raise money for Heifer International’s Honduras Project. This means Maht will sit his butt down at his computer for 26.2 hours to spin tunes to help raise money–all by himself. He does the playlist, he spins the tunes (which are top-class selections), he suffers the consequences to his health and sleep habits. Last year he got $600, which all went to Heifer International. This year he hopes to meet or beat that figure.
The insanity starts at the Velvet (the original alt club in SL) on Friday, December 3 at 2:48 pm SLT (don’t ask me why that time exactly) and will end at 5:00 pm SLT the next day, at which time Maht will retire to his bed and sleep for 14 hours straight. Every donor will receive FREE donated content (last year I got some nice things like a t-shirt and jewelry).
In honor of Casja’s return, I put on a party dress—something for going to a club and dancing the night away. Dick Wiesel knows all about a good party with his short, sexy dresses. This one, from his new Nomi series, includes his beautiful grungy denim textures and a clever prim at the bust that makes the top look like it’s stretched across (as opposed to clinging to the avatar) plus a sexy tie in back. I love the belt with its double buckles on each side.
My skin is from Nena Janus’ newest line, and it’s a stunner in this coloring. I would say that our girl’s self-satisfied smile here is because she looks so darn good. I really like how Nena renders the makeup on the face, the beautiful collarbone, the almost sensuous body features. Nothing is over-dodged, which I am seeing a lot in skins these days but shimmers with a pretty sunkissed glow.
The hair is a new one from Truth Hawks, called Joey. I love its punk look. I tried it on yesterday when I was styling my guy, thinking “Joey” was for a men’s hair. It didn’t look right on my guy but it looks smashing on my girl.
My boots are from a new line by Sissy Pessoa. They come in plain colors or exotic skins like this brown python you see here. With the sassily tied ribbon of leather around the ankle, the stiletto heel and side zip, and the gorgeous toe, this boot is sure to make your wardrobe sexier just by being there.
