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!

Ay, Caramba!

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.  🙂 )

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.

Granny Goodness

January 8, 2010

I’m not sure if it is a theme, or the cozy-feeling time of year, or just a coincidence, but a LOT of this week’s 50L Friday stuff makes me think of raiding my grandma’s closet for treasures.  That is a very good thing, in my humble opinion– take a look for yourself.

Tyranny Designs is offering up a cutie little dress inspired by “Aunt Gertrude”.  I’m not sure my elderly relatives would ever be caught in such a short little thing… and I would rather not envision it.  Nonetheless!  It is a super cute little frock and there is a strong whiff of vintage about it, for sure.  Kyoot‘s 50L prize seems perfectly intended to make sure you don’t get a chill, even with tiny skirts– winter leggings in two adorable prints.  I am wearing the flowers, and there is a more delicate print of vines in similar colors.  To top it off, a knit cap and hair set from Aitui.  Really cool style and a color change beanie, but it made me sad not to see any redhead selection for my 50L!  😦

Not part of the sale: some boots with cozy knit legwarmers from Surf Couture that I would marry, if I could.  LOVE them.  As do almost everyone else, since I see them everywhere!  Normally, that diminishes my love for SL items, but in this case… not a bit.  🙂  Oh!  And one last shout out, for the Duboo glasses, a cherry on the granny cake and a new fetish for me.   Lurve.

So until next time, kiddos– make Granny proud, and get down to do your 50L shopping before the day is out.  I’ll see you soon!

Outfit details
Skin: Curio, Elf in Petal, Snug makeup
Hair: Aitui, Ease long in blonde
Glasses: Duboo, Choucream glasses
Dress: Tyranny Designs, Auntie Gertrude Dress
Undershirt: fri.day, longsleeve layering tee in brown
Tights: Kyoot, Cozy floral tights
Boots: Surf Couture, Elsa boots in brown

Gray Skies

January 7, 2010

Blech.  I hate taking the tree down, I hate throwing away remnants of Christmas cookies, and I hate that it will be over 300 days before I can sing carols again.  Add to that– January is the grayest of gray months for much of the Northern hemisphere.  Optimists may think that means a peaceful respite from the busy December days, and it is.  But for me it often just leaves me missing the twinkly lights of yesterday!

So before I get tooooooo gray-mooded myself, I thought I would get back into SL a bit and see what cropped up while I was away being festive.  Luckily, this sweater was just waiting for me.  Thank the lord for This is a Fawn!  🙂  After that, I took a look at Mirone and found the first new hair I’ve seen there in far too long: Miaa is such a lopsided, fluffy masterpiece.  It makes my forehead look huge in an alien-esque way, and I don’t mean that as a bad thing. Almost retro, almost sci-fi, and really a lot of fashion fun.

I took out one of my all time fave skirts, from sugarcube, and some fantastic Decoy boots and voilá… a girl that matches her mood.  And although it is no longer the time for spangles and sparkles– red lips are always in season!

So… time to perk up!  Be back next time with cheer and color.  Until then, stay warm, and embrace the gray…
