Search & Destroy

3 05 2010

I’ve been in a blogging funk lately.  It’s not that I don’t have anything TO blog…I just haven’t had the desire to actually do it.  Call it being in a rut, or being lazy, or whatever you want.  All I know is two weeks is too long to be in any kind of rut.  To knock myself out of it and get back into blogging, I did what I always do when I’m feeling creatively blocked.  I put on some music and see where it takes me. 

Last night I was listening to a cover of the Iggy Pop classic “Search & Destroy” and sifting through my massive inventory.  Lo and behold, a look started to emerge influenced directly by the music blaring in my ears.  It’s a bit glam, a bit punk, a bit rock and a lot fashionista.

Adding An Edge To Glam

19 04 2010

A new release from Leezu Baxter is always cause for celebration.  She is one of the most unique designers on the grid and, even if one of her designs isn’t exactly my style, I am always intrigued by it.  More often than not, however, it is exactly my style and I can’t wait to tp over to her store and snag a few colors.  Such was the case with this newest release, the Mailiin Blouse.

Hurry! This Kyoot-ness Won’t Last

2 04 2010

Very rarely do I blog something the same day it lands in my inventory.  Between my SL and rl work schedules, I’m lucky if I can get something blogged the same week.  But because this fantastic dress by Kyoot is an exclusive 50L Friday item, it had to be done today.  And it had to be done today because YOU can only get it today.  And believe me, you want this dress.

Rockin’ The Runway With Miamai

30 03 2010

Miamai is one of my favorite stores; ranking right up there with Maitreya when it comes to the level of my excitement about a release.  So when I got the notecard that the Spring Collection at Miamai had finally made its debut, you can just imagine how happy I was.  After racing home and logging in, I discovered that monica Outlander had gifted me with a review pack.  I literally jumped out of my chair, that’s how excited I was!  It was like xmas and my birthday all rolled into one little box. 

Of course, I dove in and started emptying boxes.  It’s all lovely, and while there are a few things that weren’t really me, most of it was and I’ll be blogging a lot of it over the next few weeks.  It seems only fair to start with the first item that caught my eye:  the Keyn Jacket in Silver.  It was totally love at first sight.

Add My Name To The List

17 03 2010

I’m taking a short break from the Clothing Fair posts to share the news with all of you.  It’s official:  I have been + blacklisted +. 

We all knew it would happen eventually. 

I’ve been watching Gauge Lavilles’ store since it first opened, waiting ever so patiently for him to design the one shirt that called my name. Or in this case, maybe screamed is a better term.  And when I saw this particular shirt released this week, I knew it was the one that would get me + blacklisted +.
