Are ya interested?

I'm hitting the blog hard this week, I've been slacking.

Alright, I was thrilled to see these pants from RB, and when I pictured this outfit in my mind and it came actually together with no layering issues, I was even more thrilled. Unfortunately, I have a horrible time making things too period pieceish, sort of costumey, and I'm pretty sure thats how this outfit turned out...but, I still love it. </me talking>

Skin: miw Fall Light Skin (Salon)
Hair: Armidi Hair The Soho in Chocolat
Eyelashes: Cake - Bedroom Lashes
Tights: G.L.A.M Light Tone Sheer Tintable Metallic Lycra Tights
Shirt: Paper Couture Divinchi

I'm begging you for mercy...

In the pursuit of self-awareness, I must admit that I've been rather annoying lately. While I apologize to those who have had to put up with my, I still contend that it isn't really my fault. After missing the grand opening DP Serendipity's new main store and sim due to my hard drive dying, I was thrilled to get the new Aby dress. I loved everything about it - the bold colors, the style, the texture, etc. - and even more so once I put it on. When I continually asked my friends, "isn't this dress so cute?" or commented, "I love this dress" and "I look so cute," whenever there was a break in the conversation, I really was paying attention to what they were saying. It just happened to be at the same time I was admiring how cute I looked. And when I say I looked cute, I can understand how it might sound like I was being egotistical or overly superficial, but I assure you I wasn't. You see - I wasn't complimenting myself so much as the designer of the dress. It's not my fault she is so talented. So, if you have any complaints about me, don't send them my way. Send them to Masuri Dryke instead (sorry, Masuri).
Masuri isn't the only one responsible for my obnoxiousness, however; London Dailey of Pink Outfitters is also to blame. Anyone who knows me knows that my biggest and most frustrating challenge is finding a skin that looks good on me (yes, I know there are tons of beautiful skins out there, but for some reason 99% of them look horrible on me). Her Fresh Fx2 skins are the first ones since I bought my CS skins a while ago that I was actually excited about. I think they're very lovely and they flatter my shape (and the shading on the butt cheeks is sooo cute!). I'm anxiously looking forward to the release of her lighter toned skins. But I should warn you - I'll probably be obnoxious then too.

I'm wearing:

Hair: Mirai Style - Natu in pearl
Skin: Pink Outfitters - Fresh Fx2, Natural Beige in Toffee
Eyes: Miriel - Dark Blue
Eyelashes: Cake - Bedroom Lashes
Dress: DP Serendipity - Aby in red
Shoes: ETD - Hampton Wedge in light gold
Flower: Artilleri - Rose Hair Flower in yellow
Necklaces: +Plus - Funky Double Necklaces (yellow is from the green set and turquoise is from the turquoise set)
Bracelets: VG Republic - Resin Bangles with Color-Change
Earrings: Burroughs - Lisa Earrings

How about a 9 month long vacation?

Not much to say, really...

A while back (like when I first started the blog) I proposed the idea of having a Haute Couture Alice in Wonderland themed contest with a Linden prize, but I didn't have enough readers so the idea kind of died...anyway, this is my version of Tweedle - Dee and Tweedle - Dumb. (As you can see, I have been wearing this scarf every chance I get, seriously great piece.)

Break my heart, cards of fate, seal the deal...

This is a pic I took a while back, after the Athena shoes from Tesla came out (I'm wearing them in the picture, but they aren't visable...obviously.) I wanted to go for a really surreal pop-art type look, so I went to the Kyoot Army HQ, and used the neato white flowers there as my background. worked out nicely, in my opinion.

I'm wearing:

Skin: miw Fall Light Skin (Porkchops)
Hair: ETD Anisa in Ebony
Eyelashes: Cake - Bedroom Lashes
Undershirt: PixelDolls LeatherLaced Mix Undershirt

To this world, and yesterday...

Alright, sorry for the break guys, my life is stupid at the moment...and I haven't felt like doing normal posts, but I'm going to do some experimental type stuff this week...hopefully that will keep you entertained. Fionna is having computer problems, and I'm not sure when she will be back...hope it's soon. =]

Anyway, here is a pic I took in Frick, wearing elements from a new Maiiki outfit. Ok, as most of you know, those clothes are hella expensive, like, ridiculously so. However, I think I'm addicted...I'm going to have to find an SL job (modeling? why, yes, thank you!) to fund this new necessity. Really, my two favorite styles in SL are gothy and like...I don't even know the word, urban haute couture? Something you would see a hot new record producer wearing. (:D I'm lame, ignore me.) Maiiki, in my mind, blends these things together fits into my inventory perfectly so expect to see me in a lot of clothing from there.

I also decided that I really like Coif. I was iffy, but I tried the demos and they look GREAT, seriously, awesome hair. I bought my two favorites, Sushi and the 70's Flight Attendant, and I have been wearing them non-stop since. The same goes for these shoes that I got from ETD, honestly, I should have just bought the fat pack. I already have them in three colors, and I'm going back to get more...for only 100L a pop, why not?!

I had a hard time with jewelry...if anyone knows a place where I could get a necklace with sculptie antlers on them, will you let me know? I can't help but think it would have gone PERFECT with this fact, if you are a jewelry designer, I will commission you to make me a necklace like this, because I'm sure I would wear it all the time. I ended up deciding on my favorite necklace from Boing Fromage, this cute little owl. (Owls are one of my favorite animals!) The bronze goes good with the earthy feel to the outfit. I think that's it really, on to the pic!

I'm wearing:

Skin: Frick Peaches Warm Lolly Lips
Hair: Coif Sushi
Eyelashes: Cake - Bedroom Lashes
Leggings: Maiiki Long Leggings in Olive
Jacket: Maiiki Streep in Bronze
Shorts: Maiiki Streep Tall Girls Puff-Pants
Shoes: ETD T-strap Peep Wedges in Nickel
Necklace: Boing Fromage 50's Dangle Owl
Bracelet: I made this, for more info, please contact me in-world.

I saw you talkin' to Christopher Walken...

Clipped from a newspaper yesterday via e-scissors:

Last night at exactly 8:00SLT Dolly Gwynneville was found trampled to death by police near the KessKreations flagship store. Authorities suspect that in a mad rush to HELP ED, the fashionista was killed. Authorities also suspect that one Fionna Bracken is behind the outline, as it was there before officials arrived on the scene.

Your eyes focus on my funny lip shape...

Edit: I forgot, HELP ED! Please? =]

Five minutes before Dolly's party was about to start, I crashed and couldn't log back on. After cursing SL for the kabillionth time that weekend, I realized it wasn't SL's fault at all (but can you seriously blame me for jumping to that conclusion?). Instead, stormy weather had knocked out my internet connection. When I finally logged on about an hour later, I was met with Dolly's franctic IM that the party wasn't going well and a plea for me to get over there ASAP. Believing her (btw - never believe a perfectionist when they tell you something isn't going well), I TP'd right over without putting on the outfit I'd planned to wear, as I hadn't yet decided upon the accessories. Right away I noticed I was the only one not wearing Dolly's blog colors, black and gold. The super-nice London Dailey of Pink Outfitters then sent me her beautiful Leia Party Dress in gold so I wouldn't stick out like the sore thumb I so clearly was. While I wore that dress for the rest of the evening, this is the outfit I intended to wear. A special thanks again to London Dailey for being so sweet and talented.

I'm wearing:

Hair: Mirai Style - Natu in pearl
Skin: Celestial Studios - Deviant Nation Vogue, Vamp/Enchant
Eyes: Miriel - Dark Blue
Eyelashes: Cake - Bedroom Lashes
Outfit (cami, vest, pants): Bijou - Lucky Strike in khaki
Shoes: Armidi Gisaci - Vidalia Pump in metallic noir
Necklace: Smitten - Long Knotted Beaded Necklace (soon to be released)
Bracelet: SLink - Gold Beaded Bangles (1L)
Earrings: Chicoco - Gold Pierced (BARGAIN ALERT: 10L!!!)
Ring: Fuse - Bloom (group gift)

Real life goes undefined...

Well, yesterday was the party. It went well, but I'm pooped. Things started off rocky though, first I had the sky box way too high, or so I thought, but then I just figured out that the LM sent people to the wrong place. Oh joy. Yeah, anyway, a reasonably amount of people came, probably at max twenty were there, and it was just tons of fun.

One of the people there was Kesseret Steeplechase (KessKreations), we had been talking on and off for a while because I had asked if she would make a freebie for the party (she did, it's beautiful, will definitely blog it this week.) She was loads of fun, brought a pinata, which I beat the crap out of, and river danced with me during a few songs. She even gave me a hat that flips people the bird, come can you not like someone like that?

Anyway, given that she's an absolute sweetie, I trust that she has great taste in friends, so I told her I would put a reminder in each post this week to HELP ED.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, here is what the notecard says about the situation:


I have a friend who is in dire need. A couple weeks before Christmas his mom was diagnosed with lung cancer. Unfortunately the radiation didn't help at all, and the tumor is now in both lungs and right now she's at the house under hospice care. Actually Ed's mother passed yesterday however when I wrote this notecard she was still under his care.

What I am doing to put up a small area on my sim with some clothing I am making and I have a couple other people donating more clothing and jewelry to the area. Basically I am asking if anyone is willing to donate an item to sell on that plot or in your stores and give the proceeds to my friend.

I can assure you that this is real. It sucks for him and as his friend it breaks my heart knowing that he is going through this.

The sale will start May 30 and end June 10th. I will give you a split script and how to divert funds to the avatar Ed Bumstead. You all don't know him from Adam or me for that matter but if you have questions feel free to talk to him or send him positive vibes. He needs them.

Please contact me via IM or anyway if you would like to help

Christine Giglio

aka Kesseret Steeplechase"

So please guys, help him out! =]

Skin: LF Chai Skin in Indigo, Cream
