I’m a tornado.

Lately, I’ve been having such a hard time managing my RL workload and my, well, everything else.  So, when I do log in to SL, I have found myself gravitating to more costumes and fun items that I wouldn’t wear all the time.  That is why I stopped by Genre.  It is a small event, and in all honesty, I forget about it often.  It seems we have tons of events and only so much time to see it all.  I like the idea of Genre.  It seems the designers have fun with the themes, and I always find something I wouldn’t normally find.  I decided on this number because I thought the concept was nicely done.  I am wearing “Molly” Burlesque Ensemble by Senzafine. The corset is mesh, the bloomers are mesh, and the bustle is not, but I actually liked that it had more movement to it.   Paper Moon provided the Fascinator, and I enjoyed that some of the designers collaborated with each other.  I decided to go with  Bliensen + MaiTai’s Calamity Jane Ankle Boots also at Genre.  You really can’t see them that well unless I zoom up on them, but they have some great details: fringe and beads.  All in all, I was happy I stopped by Genre yesterday.  It was fun.  Watch out for the tree…the tree there is kinda disturbing,  well done, but disturbing.

Keeping it short and sweet today because I am exhausted. Plus, I think most of you have traveled to or plan on traveling to Collabor88, so you know how awesome it is!  I hope everyone has a great week.  Keep your chin up and your thoughts positive.  I might be talking to myself there or to you, but regardless, big hugs.

So yeah, I will probably just warn you ahead of time that these clothes mostly come from Collabor88, which you probably have seen a lot of lately, but the collection this go around is just so fabulous I feel the need to blog it all!

Clawtooth has crafted another masterpiece with this design.  Little tendrils and hair wisps surround the face while the longer strands fold delicately into a loose braid.  Drool.  Love. I really should just shut up, but this hair is amazing!  I have been wearing my Willow bodysuit for days now.  It is my new go to shopping outfit, so if you see me out and about, yes I will be half-naked in that bodysuit shopping ’til I drop.  My delicate and dainty pearl set is from Adore&Abhor.  It is the perfect set of vintage pearls for your jewelry box.  My beautifully tailored jacket comes from Fri.day.   The soft baroque pattern gives it a classy look.

In other news, see that cute little skirt there.  It is at Vintage Fair and is made by Nyte’N’Day.  You can visit the Classic Sim to pick it up for yourself!

Vintage Village

Earlier today, over some hot coffee, I inadvertently found a gem of a location, the perfect backdrop for photos. Check out the flickr picture here: Vintage Village.  It has plenty of shopping, but the sheer creative genius of the structure is captivating and a bit breathtaking when you first see it from afar.  But it also has so much character waiting around each corner.  I was having such a wonderful time exploring everything the area had to offer. If you haven’t been I encourage you to go, and if you haven’t been back in awhile, I would go back and support it.  It is a fabulous location!  TP to Vintage Village.

And on to why am I wearing a Marilyn Monroe dress?  Well, best laid plans…that is why.  I had meant to go to the 1950s Pixel Bean party on Friday, but phone call here and some odds and ends there, and I never managed to make my way over to the Bean.  So, here my photo proof that I meant to go. I got half dressed, and never made it.  When I think of the 1950s, I think of The Seven Year Itch (1955),  and the iconic Marilyn Monroe and her white dress flowing. Vita Bella offers the dress and it is animated to blow in the wind when you touch it. So Cool!   You can tell the creator has a lot of love for this era in general.  It doesn’t seem like they have created anything since 2010 according to their blog, but maybe they are just taking a SL break (crosses fingers). Take a look for yourself: TP to Vita Bella Vintage Fashion.

She’s a Manic

Um, I must confess.  I had three separate outfits ready to go for banana mania.  Ultimately, I decided on the more formal one, but omg, this is getting harder and harder. I am desperately wanting a color already in my inventory, but that might be doubtful with asparagus–maybe though.  Sorry bout the title…for some reason…mania became manic..and all the sudden I am singing “She’s a manic, manic on the floor.” Seriously, I can’t get that song out of my head now.

Just a Steel-Town girl on a Saturday night
Lookin for the fight of her life
In the real time world no one sees her at all
They all say she’s crazy

Have fun everyone!

Little Darlin’

The past can always be a bit alluring.  As a teenager, I refused to be mainstream and often found myself listening to the music of my parents’ generation and sifting through thrift stores for something to capture the past. I would spend hours examining the front covers of my parents’ vinyl records.  Looking at the cover art, I would try to understand the time and the people, and the events that influenced them both.  The past seemed so magical, much more magical than my average teenage life.

When college hit, I became a pop culture follower.  I worshiped gossip magazines and knew every “it” song that hit the radio by heart.  I associated each song with a place.  I associated songs with certain friends.  Falling in love–had a song for it.  Heartbreak–had a song for it.  Getting ready for a girls’ night out–had the mix CD ready to go.   Moving into my thirties, I realize I have let much of that go.  Of course, I can still sing along to the radio (at least most of the song), but ask me the name of a band or the newest craze, and I have no clue.  I guess I have become disconnected.  I do find myself having those nostalgic moments, where I find a song I hadn’t heard for awhile.  The flood of memories come back, and often times, I smile.  Magic.
