Feast Your Eyes

July 13, 2010

Prim eyelashes. *sigh* Is there anything more fiddly for the SL fashionista to fit?  I have two pairs that I wear routinely, mainly because they already fit and I can’t be bothered to spend time on others.  That is, until yesterday.  Yesterday, you see, I made it a mission of mine not to be such a wimp. Fashion is so eeeeeeasy in SL, it is easy to get lazy about it.  Buy it, wear it, mix it, layer it… a few little clicks.  But in real life, fashion is suffering: be it 4 inch heels or starving into a season of miniskirts.  It was high time for Jenopolis to pay the price of looking good.

So– here are three stellar eyelash sets which I fitted myself in an unusual display of patience and mild suffering.  Not that they are perfect… I’m not THAT good with details.  But I did step back afterwards and think– dang!  Worth the time.  They are pretty amazing little pieces of art.

Also– as a little extra treat for the eyelash work, I featured some thrifty finds of mine from the last week or so.  Including a gorgeous 100L skin!  Enjoy…

Festivals of Flowers and Stars

July 5, 2010

For me, summer festivals are the bestest part of the season.  Sure, I love the beach and vacation and lazing around on weekends drinking beer at barbecues.  But there is something perfectly wonderful about wandering around a festival with a crispy sugary piece of fried dough, browsing through shop stalls, playing games of chance, and people watching.  *happy sigh*

You will understand, then, why I am so FREAKING excited by the plethora of summer fashion festivals all over SL these days.  I haven’t been able to cover them all yet, or even the very biggest (that will be its own post).  Today I am highlighting two of my smaller, quirky faves.   Not just because they are filled with excellent shopping– though they are.  The design and feel of these festivals is so… *happy sigh*.  Believe me, you will have fun!

Panty Raid

July 2, 2010

Yesterday I was looking through my inventory, and I realized I didn’t have any panties.  Not like, “I have thousands of dresses, but what will I wear?” I could really only find two pairs of old ratty panties at the bottom of my inventory drawer.

This was not always the case.  I used to be an escort (don’t judge!  I was a poor l’il noob!) and panties were my primary item of clothing.  But three years later I have ditched or sold all my lingerie and don’t have a pair of knickers to save my soul.  Even more shocking… I didn’t know where to buy more!  SL evolves fast and with three years between me and my last underwear purchase I was lost and going commando.

SO… this blog post is a chronicle of me finding my way back into the world of panties.  I wonder if some of you have forgotten the art of undergarments, as well?  Whether you are looking for functional undies or something hot-cha-cha enough to make a good dog break his leash, I hope you find something you like in these pics and the slurls and details that follow.  Take a stroll with me down the aisles of what I think are some of the best panty shops in-world:

Here we go… PANTY RAID!!!

Summertime heat is here.  Kinda makes a girl want to sizzle, no?  So, here I am, ready for a sultry night of dancing on the beaches of some South American paradise.

One last thing– I don’t have a dance partner.  Hmmmm.  What to DO?  Guess I’ll be conducting auditions of broad-shouldered Latin gods to hold me close and teach me how to samba.  (By appointment only, contact Jenopolis.  🙂 )

World Cup Fever

June 26, 2010

I am a girl with a fever these days, and it comes from an unexpected place.  Not new shoes, not lingerie, not a trip to Paris.  My fever comes from South Africa– I have been entirely caught up in the World Cup this year.  This is a real first for me, since my idea of fun does not usually– or ever– involve organized sports.  But I am living in Europe now and I have been completely swept up with the passion and the style and the ohmygod of it all.

So, here it is– a love note and a GO GETUM to my boys of the USA, right before they face Ghana this evening.  Will be cheering for you, and will be looking good doing it!  🙂

Speaking of which… I am at the stadium in my own version of red white and blue. The credit for the enormous and completely BLUE foam finger goes to Reek. Genius work!  And the color is completely mod, so root for whichever team you like.  Another big LURVE goes out to duboo, and the darling Newreem, for some amazing work on these tights– and they are entirely apropos for the World Cup!

The dress is my WHITE, and is one of the most versatile dresses I have ever bought.  It is from Fawn, and rides the rail right between sexeh and indie SO well.  It also creates just the right amount of cleavage to show off the Yummy necklace!

Finally, the RED would have to be my hair, of course!  This time, it’s Clawtooth, and the reddy red shade is a new one for me, called Valentine.  It was a 50L grab at one point in the last couple weeks, and I am really taken with it.

So– that’s all for now.  Good luck to your own team, whoever they may be, and happy shopping! (during non-game hours only, of course…)

When Only 1988 Will Do.

June 23, 2010

My latest workout mix is a tribute to the late 80s.  Besides the obvious appeal of synthesized musical goodness, it makes me smile just to listen to it.  I remember my big sister going to junior high dances, all side ponytailed up, Aqua Net in her bag, and thinking… man, some day I will be as cool as that.

Well, by the time I got that old, grunge had set in, and I was thwarted.  Flannel and dirty hair are fine in their way, but it would never satisfy that urge of mine to have a candy colored wardrobe and bright pink lipstick.  So, as is so often the case, I am inflicting my subconscious yearnings on you via SL fashion.  Look out! 🙂

This mood and look all came from one new purchase: Emery‘s one shoulder top.  It is simply SQUEE, in bright capital letters!  Besides the cleverness on the front, which makes me smile, the colors.  Are. Perfect.  Looooove!  Only one pair of pants in my (extensive) inventory was capable of holding its own with this shirt.  That would be the fabulous and quirky ziggy starbutt pants from the Sea Hole.  This store is a completely bizarre, completely wonderful place.  I got these pants a while ago, so I’m listing them here, hoping they are still on sale.  If not– eh, you will find other brilliance there, so I’m not going to apologize!

Now, let’s talk shoes.  These flip flops from creamshop are, in my book, a necessary purchase for the summer.  The toes are just genius, and the choice of nail polish and skin color are easy and rewarding.  Looking at these, I want to wiggle my feets in some sand RIGHT NOW.

Lastly, the W&Y hair.  Does any hair place walk the line between wearable and couture like W&Y?  I don’t think so!  I have so very many styles in my hair folder, and whenever I want an outfit to pop, I try a few on.  LOVE.

So– go get your Whitney Houston albums out, y’all, and have a great time playing dress up!  Happy shopping…
