6.30.2014 : Birds of a Feather

Ok, so.  This kidney infection I have been fighting since May has really taken a hit on me and RL had to come first.  I try so hard to not get ill that by the time I am I am usually the last to know it and completely run into the ground. But life goes on and thankfully I am still in the game :)  I've managed to relieve my shopping itch with new releases from a variety of stores and events. Details are below in credits!

6.13.2014: Bliensen + MaiTai for The Dreaming Tree

The Dreaming Tree is a new event that is part of The Liaison Collaborative (TLC).  It is a weekend event where a group of rotating stores offer items that follow a set theme at amazingly discounted prices. The theme this week is "Atomic" and Bliensen + MaiTai is a participant this round.  I've been a fan of Bliensen + MaiTai way back to their days at Starlust (I loved Starlust) and can count on Plurabelle Laszlo's work to be unique and quirky.  She is not afraid to get a little wierd and I love that about her!  The two offerings are offered this weekend for 50% off retail price: the My Periodic System Necklaces - available for both men and women and includes both Periodically Nerdy and Periodically inspired original mesh discs using elements from the periodic table.  It is material enhanced.  The amazing Atom Heart Mother ring is adjusted for Slink Hands and includes versions for both elegant and casual hands as well as one for our normal SL grabbers. Both items are copy/mod so you can adjust, resize, whatever you need it to do to look good on you.

I just have to sidetrack for just a minute because Atom Heart Mother brings back memories of my college years.  I went to university in a rural environment and for a time lived in a house right next to a small farm that had a bunch of cows.  After an herbal adjustment I would wear my Walkman and listen to Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother and talk to the cows.  Good times.

My other duds are from the current round at Collabor88 and include new skin from Glam Affair (wish there was a fatpack option!), hair from Tableau Vivant and shirt from Maitreya.  Details in credits.

Necklaces: Bliensen + MaiTai: My Periodic System - Periodically Inspired (left), Periodically Nerdy (right), 100% original mesh (enhanced materials) for both men and women: offered at 50% off June 14 & 15 for The Dreaming Tree event.

6.9.2014: Essential Summer Outfit

I saw this dress in green on my friend, Qopi, and I just knew I had to have it. The Wyeth Dress is from Deadwool and it certainly does remind me of the dress worn in the painting, Christina's World, from American Painter, Andrew Wyeth.  It's a shortened version of the very classic shirtwaist dress and I love it for it's timelessness.  The Cutout Sandals are from Le Primatif and I just had to grab the navy pair!  I have a hard time finding really good navy's in SL and these were it.  Plus, I've been loving all the adorable sandals that are out this summer for Slink bare feet.  Both of these items are available at half price at the current round of The Chapter 4.

Truth just released his new Oceana hair for the newest round of Collabor88.  The theme for June's Collab round is Lighthouse, so the items have been inspired by things nautical.  The ribbon has several different textures available in solids and prints and runs through the braid for a bit of fun!

Dress: Deadwool: Wyeth Dress - Navy: available at The Chapter 4 Half-price room
Shoes: Le Primatif: Cutout Sandals - Navy: available at The Chapter 4 Half-price room
Hair: Truth: Oceana - Blonde HUD: new release at Collabor88

Dark Fantasy

During my travels through Fashion for Life, I came across this hair from EMO-tions. This is one of the most fab hairs I've found lately. It's hard to find what I call "glam hair". I know glam isn't the right word for it, but yeah. Anyway, what I mean is, "out of the norm" hair. Hair that just begs to be photoed. And this hair is definitely photo-worthy! It comes with 2 pony tail attachments (rigged, and flexi), and a bun. Also included is the horns, and the face chains. And with 25% of the proceeds going to RFL, its a great buy!


I decided to pair it up with a FAB dress I found at Zanze. You can find it in their booth at FFL. It also comes in a gold version, which is stunning, but the platinum looks beauuuuuuutiful with my horns! :D I also got slammed with compliments when I wore this out shopping after my photo shoot. So yeah. Be sure to pick up these items while you're at FFL. You won't be disappointed! ^.^

Until next time! :D

While strollin' through the fair one day.....

While I was doing some shopping at Fashion for Life, I ran into Bastchild Lotus & Paul Lapointe, setting up their booth. I've always loved their store, but I'd never had the pleasure of actually meeting them in person. As it turns out, they are two of the most pleasant, down to earth people you could ever hope to meet! (not to mention generous! If ya'll are reading this, thanks again for the stuffs! ;p) Anyway, after chatting with them and Isobel (their lovely wedding specialist) for a bit, I went on my way so they could get back to work. A few sims later, I hear someone say HI FALLACY! Whatdoyaknow - they decided to take a stroll through the event. While we were chatting, Paul notices a horse ride outside of a booth. What happened after was definitely worth documenting. (Photos and chat logs posted with their permission. The logs were edited for length though, cause we stood there laughing for quite a while. heh)

BastChild Lotus: OMG
BastChild Lotus: that's just wrong Paul
Fallacy DeCuir: i took blackmail shots, if yer interested *snicker*
Isobel Belfire: Thank you Fallacy for thinking like I do! :D
Fallacy DeCuir: dont worry Paul, i'll only embarrass you if Bast tells me to *gigglez*
BastChild Lotus: OOOh.. do IT.. DO it!
Paul Lapointe: is this legal
Paul Lapointe: didnt even buy the horse dinner
BastChild Lotus: at least it's NOT dinner
Paul Lapointe: does my butt look big on this
BastChild Lotus: I'm just dying here.. this is so nuts!
Isobel Belfire: Me toooo
Paul Lapointe: now this one is just not right
Paul Lapointe: this will hurt in the morning
Isobel Belfire: Yeah it's gonna be your turn for the chiropractor tomorrow, Paul!

I'd definitely have to say that this was one of the most .....memorable shopping trips I've been on.

Until next time! ^.^

Fashion for Life 2014

Every year, many wonderful residents of Second Life™  ban together to organize various events to benefit the American Cancer Society. Fashion for Life is SL’s longest running, and most successful fashion fair. As a first time Fashion For Life blogger, I wanted to take a moment to explain what it's all about. FFL is in support of Relay For Life of Second Life. 100% of the money donated through Fashion For Life goes to the RFLofSL. Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society's signature fundraising event. ACS has a global impact on the fight against cancer. You can read more about it here:

Fashion For Life 2014 runs from June 7th til June 20th, and spans across 10 sims. This years theme is Wanderlust, which is a reflection of Relay For Life's theme, "Journey To A Promise". Over the 10 sims, you will find 150 stores, gacha areas and a region wide passport game. You can find more information about the fair at the following web site: http:/

Whereas the amazing builders for the event have laid out a nice pathway which connects all of the event sims together, you can use the following SLURLS to get started.

American Cancer Society - Main info sim

 Be sure to come out and support a most worthy cause! I hope to see you at the fair! ^.^

6.4.2014: Me & my JJ

If anyone noticed, I kind of did fall off the face of the planet there for a bit.  I have been sicker than I have been in years and am completing my first round of Cipro and starting to feel like myself again.  I apologize in the delays in blogging...and I was starting to get on a roll there.

This round of The Arcade is interesting; there are very few clothing items (I guess accessories and decorative items are more broadly appealing as a gacha item), but I was thrilled to see that Pixicat joined with this round and has made some stunning kimonos.  I am particularly in love with the patterned ones, especially this Koi one.  The kimonos are actually rompers so you can wear it alone and not show off parts you would rather not share.  The dragon on my shoulder is one of the rare items from the gacha and I just adore him.

Truth's Sakura hair for The Arcade is a ton of fun. You can win the style with either two buns or one in each color hud as well as with teddy bears, flowers, kokeshi dolls or sushi.  I am wearing the light blonde with sushi which is a rare and I was thrilled how well it worked with the kimono.  The skin is also from The Arcade; Glam Affair's Liv skin. There are a ton of those to collect this time with 3 skin tones and two skin styles.

Poses are from an lar's new set, The Modern Series, for the Fit for a Princess event!

From The Arcade:
Hair: Truth: Sakura: Light Blondes w/ Sushi (rare)
Skin: Glam Affair: Liv skin - arctic 03
Kimono / Dragon: Pixicat
