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…

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.

Winter Schlump

December 6, 2009

There is one good thing about being off the SL grid for a while– when you get back, you have a whole season’s worth of beautiful clothes to try on.  Today, I reveled in my accumulated mass of fashion, and fixated on creating a little Winter Schlump… you know, the kind of clothes you wear to hole up in with your friends, enjoying a hot chocolate spiked with whisky and watching old Christmas flicks.  The art of the cozy yet aesthetically pleasing schlump.

The first outfit was totally inspired by this Pr!tty hair, which was a new find for me in a tiny corner of Black Market– it is so dramatic without being fussy and formal, and it is BIG.  I love big!  And the rose-studded hair band is super sweet, no?  So sweet, in fact, that I couldn’t resist a little bad attitude…

I am also a little (err, a lot) in love with my winter whites here.  The cardigan is courtesy of Ohmai, and if she isn’t genius with creating fashion forward schlump, I don’t know who is!  The cardi here is just great, with a perfect length and hang to wear with a million things.  Complementing it here is a skirt I couldn’t love more, the Niniko skinny skirt.  Of course, leave it to Niniko to make the skinny skirt an outstanding cargo, devoid of the Mad Men sex kitten thing and all about looking cozy as can be without a hint of poof.  I adore the belt, and the sculpted pockets on the back are just GAWgeous.  To spice up the neutrals, I tossed on another tee from my incresingly tall pile of Gbberish stuff– such a statement piece!

One more thing– these BOOTS.  If I had them in rl, I just know I would have a hard time taking them off.  Ever.  Beetlebones at its best, they are quirky and comfy and so different!  The tassles make me smile like crazy, and I can’t wait to wear them in another color with another outfit and see what other magic they can spin.

Outfit One
Skin: Rockberry, Mia natural with freckles
Hair: Pr!tty, Runway model hair in Rose
Shirt: Gbberish, Urban Tees in Dark Maiden
