Can’t Orkney firbkkk phone | Its Only Fashion

You’ll find a different sort of article right now at It’s Only Fashion. Written by Cajsa Lilliehook, it’s entitled “Can’t Orkney firbkkk phone”, and it’s about something that Linden Lab could do to increase user satisfaction and attract new people — instead of mega-events and various things, why not try emphasizing the ways the people connect with each other?  The proof of Cajsa’s thesis derives from the title, which is the last line plurked by our friend Gidge Uriza as she was going under for some surgery today.  As you’ll see in Cajsa’s article, she and Gidge connected via shared experiences in Second Life, and later extended that connection to the real world as well.  Gidge was there, figuratively, for Cajsa when she was undergoing some serious medical problems a few years ago, and now Cajsa is there for Gidge.

I hope you’ll stop by and read.  I hope this especially if you are someone from the Lab; you might want to consider recommending this to your public relations department (grin).  Get well soon, Gidge!

Some Suggestions from Fashion for Life Bloggers

Writing from Kissimmee, Florida.

Fashion for Life has been spectacularly successful so far this year.  The report from the sidebar counter at the event blog is at least L$4.3 million — that’s better than USD $16,000 contributed, with better than four days left in the event.  Not bad, people!

If you’re looking for some ideas, let me throw these at you.  The links go to six articles at three of the best fashion blogs out there:  Michelle Hyacinth’s Weblog, Cajsa Lilliehook’s It’s Only Fashion and Harper Beresford’s A Passion for Virtual Fashion.

 

It’s Only Fashion’s Great SL Photo Hunt Announced

Writing from College Park, Florida.

If you don’t already read It’s Only Fashion, written by Cajsa Lilliehook, Gidge Uriza et al., you need to.  It’s one of the nicest blogs I’ve read out there in the world revolving around the Grid.  And now Cajsa has come up with a contest for you.

The Great SL Photo Hunt encourages you to explore Second Life in search of places where you can complete 100 different photo projects.  (The full list is available at Cajsa’s blog.)  They can be as simple as “You ironing clothes,” or as complex as “You and as many friends as possible stuffed in a phone booth.”  So you’re going to need some help on at least some of these projects; time to start contacting your friends and networking.  There are prizes for completing activities, with first worth L$6,500 in cash and goodies!

Read the article, get out the camera, and get to work!

A Bonbon from Donna Flora

“The only lasting beauty is the beauty of the heart.” — Robert Frost

The unofficial poet laureate of New England was right in the essence of what he wrote; but there is physical beauty that endures if not lasts forever, and that can be found in architecture as well as the more portable arts.  For instance, the Alhambra in Granada, Spain is celebrated for its loveliness in line and art, so much that the Spanish left it alone for the most part when the Moors were overthrown by Isabella and Ferdinand.  The Court of the Lions is one of the jewels in this lovely setting, and I chose to pose here in a Donna Flora gown from her most recent collection.

Bonbon is a silly little party-dress confection reminiscent of the Fifties, with its brocaded fabric in lavender and white silk, the poufy bubble skirt and its short, satiny flounce, and its strapless top.  Details are picked out in gold thread; and a gold ribbon sash and bow separates the skirt from the flounce, while what looks like woven gold lamé edges the bust and cinches the waist.  I decided to go with new shoes for this, and so ran off to N-core for a nice pair of strappy heels to give even more length to my legs here.

The necklace (and the earrings, which are hidden beneath my hair) are also from Donna Flora, and complement the dress wonderfully.  And if you’re wearing gold, why not gold nails — in a fashionable French polish, of course.

The hairstyle is more up to date, and comes from Bliss.  A lovely touch to bring the old into the modern world.

Incidentally, and more important than fashion, Squinternet Larnia is recovering from an illness that had her in the hospital for some time.  We all wish her lots of love and support and a speedy recovery, and this article is part of the Donna Flora A to Z project put together by Cajsa Lilliehook to thank and repay Squinternet for all the support she gave Cajsa last year, during the fashion writer’s own long illness.  Each writer picked a letter and chose a dress from Donna Flora’s stock to purchase and write about, and I came up with B in both the dress and main jewelry.  Check Cajsa’s article at It’s Only Fashion for a list of other pieces in the group publishing project (updated as more are added); and, if you have a chance, go check out the vintage goodies Squinternet has designed for us at Donna Flora.  If you’ve never been there, then you poor depraved, uh, deprived person!

I love winter wools

Cajsa Lilliehook discovers another lovely piece of knitting on the Grid. Only part of this outfit is available (as you’ll discover by reading the piece above), but it’s a lovely part.

Monica Outlander of MiaMai has produced a gorgeous pantsuit with a gorgeous wool serge. I love its rich texture and jewel tone colors. But guess what, it’s cold outside, so…

I tossed on a snug warm sweater and scarf. The sweater is from Novocaine – a store that has sadly left the grid. The scarf, though, is a new release from Baiastice. It comes in several colors and also includes a additional piece that can cover up your lower face for those bitterly cold days.

Travels in Egypt (via It’s Only Fashion)

The 2011 Accessory Fair is going on now in two special sims. When I visited the other night, it was remarkably lag-free, and I found some several interesting things I may write about myself in the near future, though I was mainly looking in vain for some classic Egyptian queen’s crowns and couldn’t find them this time.

For now, though, consider these tasty items that Cajsa Lilliehook of It’s Only Fashion found for herself, along with some wonderful black-background photography!

Travels in Egypt The Accessory Fair has gone to Egypt where a river of inspiration resulted in beautiful jewelry and accessories worthy of a Pharaoh or a Pharaoh’s Tomb. One of the first places to visit there is Mood featuring jewelry by Jori Watler. Mood is where you go for modern classics, designs that look au courant forever. This set is th Egiziano Dea Ensemble. This closer look shows how rich the texture work is in Mood Jewelry. The Mood Dakhla set for Relay … Read More

Exploring Second Life (via It’s Only Fashion)

One reason many of us got into Second Life in the first place was for the chance to explore. It was only afterwards that we became contaminated with the tendency toward conspicuous consumption (grin).

Cajsa Lilliehook of It’s Only Fashion still does an occasional turn inside a photosphere; but these days, she’s more inclined to go on location to show her wardrobe choices.  And, for those looking for places to travel to, she has a goodie.  Read on….

Exploring Second Life Exploring Second Life® could land you with hundreds of landmarks – many of them with names that provide no clue to what the place if like. All those landmarks just take up space, so a back in 2007 I began organizing my landmarks in a notecard to save space in my inventory. Since I was going to the trouble of putting them in a notecard, I started to group t … Read More
