Ay, Caramba!

June 28, 2010

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.  🙂 )

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.

(details, squees, and slurls after the jump…)

Where Am I?

October 13, 2009

europe and sitting

I stumbled on Rumsey Maps today, and I just had to share.  I admit I’m a bit of a map geek, but what’s not to love??  Huge reproductions of antique maps, some on the ground, some flat and vertical, some suspended globes hanging above the terrain, and some are the terrain itself!  So I put on some of my favorite new casual duds, and took some touristy pics to give you a free tour. 🙂

My favorite map was the one above– an enormous old map of the world, laid out on the ground so you can walk from Siberia to South America and across all seven oceans.    After I was done checking out Europe from my seat in Tangiers, I mosied on over to India:

shoes and India

In addition to enlightening me on some of the old names of Indian cities, it was a chance for me to take a pic of some of my favorite shoes– from Periquita.  🙂  (You didn’t think I would totally ignore the fashion part, did you??)  I think they look particularly great with the Ohmai leggings, which have JUST the right length to them!

After a little admiring of footwear, I scooted into the 3D map and wandered the black and white valleys and peaks.

Walking on water, I think.  The lack of blue confuses me!

The big 3D reproduction of a drawing of the Grand Canyon was vivid and fascinating as well.  Kind of makes you think of what people had to look at to imagine far away places, waaaaay back when.  Not much to go on!  🙂

Have a fun, geeked out afternoon sometime and check it out!  In the meantime, here’s the deets on the outfit, and I hope you enjoyed the tour!
