Grey’s The Way!

“People think that everyone wears black in France; in fact they all wear grey.”
~ Jean Paul Gaultier

So, again, this is a post that got away from me. I had plans; everything was set in my mind, plotted to the last alpha layer. I was going to photograph shine’s Grey Collection in monochrome with vivid colour accents: bright red lips, stunning aquamarine eyes, verdant green foliage, and bold yellow gloves (you know how I love to play with gloves). When I signed in this morning, though, things came together differently.

I just love when outfits evolve on their own!

Grey Collection 1 600 ( This outfit is pure ‘shine;’ simple, comfortable, and still pretty stylish! )

Something you will notice, however, is that I kept each outfit very simple; after a month of shimmer, sparkle, and bright colour, it was refreshing to change gears this way. To ’embrace the grey,’ as it were. Continue reading

Today!

Working Title: Yesterday’s Tomorrow’s Tomorrow Today

First of all, I’m sure you can see why I went with a simpler title but let me explain:

It was always my intention to cover the Tomorrow Today event in installments; it’s the easiest thing in the world to promote a new event because most everyone has heard about it, been waiting for it, and are excited to see fantastic new offerings especially when proceeds are donated to a worthwhile cause. The thing with Second Life, though, is that time is a little skewed. Many things happen on a daily basis and the more time we spend here, the fuller every day seems to be. It’s easy to say “hey, I really love this __________, but I’ll just come back for it later. I won’t forget.

Sometimes we forget. We’re human. We err.

I was supposed to write this post yesterday under the borderline-creative-and-cheeky title “Tomorrow’s Tomorrow Today” but .. again, I’m as human as anyone. I didn’t get to it. Ugh. Continue reading

Tomorrow Today .. Today!

Hello, my dears!

We’re a little over halfway through the Tomorrow Today event and, by every account, the support has been overwhelming. Dozens of designers, bloggers, and most importantly shoppers have come together to support Matchbook Monday, designer of truly incredible Amorous jewelry.

You can find information on this event on Matchbook Monday’s personal blog. Also, here is the Amorous blog and a link to the marketplace and inworld stores. The event location is right here.❤

New and Newerer

Wow, okay! So it’s been a little while since my last post and while I doubt I should admit to spending the last four days up to my eyeballs in SWToR (chapter 1 of the smuggler storyline complete, baby! LEGACY, WOOO!), I would also like to assure you that I am back and blogging for the forseeable future. Will I sneak off to fight the Imperials, work on my Huttball record, and take my XS Freighter through perilous deep space missions? Well, yes, but not at the expense of sharing fun fashion finds with you!

We’re talking about clothes now, see? I can stop playing any time I want. Yep.

( Eee! Big empty house – check here for a slightly larger view and a special guest appearance.❤ ) Continue reading

Of all the dresses ..

.. in all the shops in all of the SL events right now .. the CadyLady and I bought the EXACT SAME ONE. At Cinema.

Crazy, right? But really .. would you have been able to resist the Volstead ‘Liason’ in honey? This lacy, silky, sheer chemise (if you aren’t wearing the glitch layers) left me speechless the second I tried it on. I’m still having trouble drumming up the words to describe how much I love this piece. Just .. go to Cinema and pick up the demo so you can throw me a line, here.

Okay?

Thanks.

Rollin’ rollin’ rollin’!

Wow, okay, so I’m on a roll again! This is .. *counts* .. my SEVENTH post in a week and I hope you’re having as much fun reading my blog as I am writing and sharing some of my favourite fashion finds with you.

It’s probably pretty clear that I’m on a {mon tissu} kick right now (how not, with the Mon Tissu Blogger Search in full swing) but statistically it was bound to happen anyway. As anyone who knows me and sees me more than once a week knows, I wear this label ALL the time and today’s fantastic slouchy sweatshirt is no exception. I rarely wear black but when I do, I love dressing it up with metallic accents (like the Amorous Luna belt and these rocking accessories from MANDALA) – bonus points are also awarded for contrasting textures like velour, lace, and leather.

Something I read in Caoimhe Lionheart’s blog the other day absolutely struck a chord with me. For brevity’s sake, I’ll just go ahead and paste it at you: Continue reading

Portia’s Closet ~ Take Flight

You know? It’s funny .. these closet posts are supposed to be quick and easy. The location isn’t going to change. I have a fully loaded pose stand beneath the floor. I use my default windlight (*Starley* settings 2, ftw) and regular grapics without shadows or lighting or anything. In reality, I should spend more time putting outfits together than taking the shot itself, right?

Maybe it’s just late and I need to get this knocked out and SLEEP!
