Funky Fraulein

June 10, 2010

I would have titled this one “Cranky Fraulein,” but that doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.

Yeah, mid-week crankiness abounds, and I was working it out by going through my inventory and trying on a bunch of things that had been languishing, frankly.  I had a whole folder of Modd.G stuff which I had barely tried on– including this fabulous, over the top dress.  After the dress came the new(ish) Maitreya hair with slouchy beret, and suddenly I had visions of meadows of milk cows and fashion-forward leiderhosen.  Am I wrong??

So, here it is.  An outfit borne of closet raiding, and which DID serve to get me over the funk I was in.

Aha!  Funk.  Funky Fraulein.  It comes full circle. 🙂

MUAH!  Hope your day is going beautifully.  Happy shopping!

Outfit details
Dress: Modd.G, Lydiah Summer Dress in ocean mint
Tee: fri.day, Longsleeve layering tee in white

Sweet Little Pookie

June 8, 2010

Reason number 112 why SL is an outstanding place to live:  You can gorge yourself on sweets all you like, and still fit into all of your haute couture.  Wooohoo!

If you have a sweet tooth that needs some attending to, I strongly suggest you take a stroll over to Pookie Promenade, suetabulous yootz’s clever and cutey shopping mall.  Her Pookie Patisserie there is yummmmmmilicious, and the eating animations are a total riot!!  But the pixelated cupcakes aren’t the only sugary confections there– this collection of stores is absolutely the most sweet, yummy, girly, fun little band of fashion stalls I have run across in a long time.  It inspired a truly little girl mood, complete with squealing and a decided lack of self control as I parted with my Lindens… and stuffed my face.

Moving Day

June 5, 2010

Moving in real life is not easy or fun.  Moving back into SL after a big break… easier, more fun, and much much cheaper!  🙂

That said, there are lots of things that need to be set up all over again, and loads of shopping to do just to get a handle on what is *now*.  Phew!  That can certainly take it out of a girl.  So, this morning I dressed down and had a little bit of inventory rediscovery, organized my closet once again, and dressed for a bit of HARD WORK.

(More pics and details after the jump…)

Summer in the City

June 4, 2010

Hello… hello…. HELLOOO!  🙂  I’m back, and I have missed you so much, you lovelies!!

I can’t stand to miss summer in the virtual city, so I came back to get myself a spanking new SL loft with a fantastic view.  Once that was done, I hope you can guess what came next: foraging around my favorite ol’ shops. And Friday was certainly a good day to choose to come back, dontcha think??  What a wonderful welcome home!  I kiss you on the mouth, 50L$ Fridays! Love!

I apologize in advance for the brevity of this post… I have lots of catching up to do, though, in world, and as much as I would love to gab and gush in detail about all of these things, for once I’m gonna let the pics speak for themselves.  (with slurls and deets below…)

But, short though this is, I promise to be back with lots more… lots and lots and lots more.  Do you know how much fashion you miss after a whole four month break??  It is downright SCANDALOUS.

MUAH– see you soon, and happy shopping!

Outfit details

Dress: Tiny Bird, Painted Flower Dress in nude (50L Friday!)
Shoes: Decoy, Alexa Heels in casual
Necklace: (Yummy), Portrait Necklace
Clutch: Coco, Clutch bag in silver
Hair: @Waffles!, Fargo eats tofu in caramel

Blog Break

February 24, 2010

Hello and goodbye… for a little bit.  I’ve been recruited by SD-6 for a secret mission, and I will be in deep cover for a couple of months.

Errr, I mean, I have just landed a gig on a dog sledding expedition in the Arctic, and will be living in tundra and having a death-defying adventure for the foreseeable future.

Ummm… would you believe that the dog ate my computer?

The boring truth is, I am setting up my own RL freelance business and with all the work involved I am just not finding the time I need to log in to SL and squee over all the amazing fashion which needs (and deserves) to be squeed over.  So… a short spell on the time out bench for Jenopolis. Once things settle into a manageable groove again, I will be back refreshed and ready for a monstrously large shopping spree!  🙂  The wonderful thing about SL is how just 1 or 2 months can result in a veritable renaissance of pixelated clothing on offer, don’t you think?

Will miss you until I see you again, and don’t be afraid to check out my recommended blogs to the right.  They are all pretty dern fantabulous!  MUAH!

New Year’s Resolutions

January 9, 2010

It’s that time of year: the turning of the calendar gives us each a good excuse for a bit of naval-gazing and the resolution to make changes where needed.  For me?  Since 2009 was quite possibly the most eventful, strange, wonderful, stressful, tumultuous year of my life, I am just yearning to keep all my lovely new things intact and enjoy them with a little more calmness.

I was inspired by these necklaces I bought a while back– called Ganesha.  I just looked at the notecard today that designer Lucas Lameth (luc) included with this charming set.  I know I should have looked at the insert card sooner, but in fact it turned out to be kismet that today was the day I opened it up.  Apparently, Ganesha is one of the most popular of Hindu deities, and is reputed to be a remover of obstacles, prayed to before the beginning of any new venture.  The elephant head on the necklace represents Ganesha himself.  !!!  The perfect New Year’s inspiration!

Also inspiring?  Yes… the clothes!  I adore yoga in RL, but have never given the SL variety a whirl until now.  I am half-ashamed to admit it, but I was wholly motivated to start because I picked up a pair of these Surf Couture yoga pants.  Shallow of me, I know, but come ON… these have the perfect waistband, perfect scrunchy leg, perfect fit.  They could get anyone into downward facing dog!

Another point of inspiration– this FREE skin.  It’s part of a woodland nymph avatar named Elfa, and you can get the whole av for free just by clicking her sweet little self.  Go ahead!  Find her here.  I just love the freshness, the flush on the cheeks, and the adorable nose.

And now, it is time for me to run and do some stretching of my own.  But in case I forgot to say it before– hope you are having a happy new year and may all your resolutions be successful!  (Well, not TOO successful… there is always next year!  hee!  XOXO )
