It’s been such an odd day.  I’ve been feeling a little out of sorts.  So, I figured what better way to feel out of place than to dress a little like a boy.  Of course it’s me, and I had to glam it out in my usual style. 

Side Note:  Here is the text from my life in SL right now at the Second Life Models Party at DMA… I seriously can’t concentrate on this blog)

High Fashion Mourning

MarlyMourn2 My dear friend Marleen Vaughan is closing her store Marlys (huge sale, so hop to it!), and I put this little outfit together in honor of her.

Marly is the sweetest and most humble and often times stubborn person I know, and I have come to find that the only way I can truly tell her how amazing she is, is to just blog about it and have her find it later.  I feel ultra chic and spyish when I do it too!  (+1 point for me)

Truth be told, I was on my way out of SL and blogging when I came across Marly and her wonderful SIM of which I have resided for some months now.   Thank You Marly for making SL fun again for me.

(Bah! Ok, enough sappyness.. for her and I both.. On with the fashion!)

8 Hairstyles I can’t live without…

I’m back to continuing my countdown of my absolute favorite things in SL.  To recap… I started with 10 summer dresses, featured 9 swimsuits, and now I am at 8 of my favorite hairstyles.  These are the hairstyles that no matter how much hair I buy I just can’t seem to take off and I just continue wearing them over and over again.  Some are popular, some aren’t that popular, and some are entirely too popular, but they are definately some of my favorite things 🙂

Candy is Dandy (and so are new releases)

This little blogger decided to venture on a shopping trip and ended up at Chantkare. To my dismay and awful sadness, I saw that the store was closed in preparation for their Summer 2009 collection.

Well, ladies (and gentlemen of course) I’m here to tell you the secret of a true fashionista if you don’t know it already.  CAM SHOPPING!!!  That’s right, even though the store was “closed” I got to buy a few things.  And I am here to tell you that shopping feels even better if you feel naughty while doing it.  I picked up the Chocolate Cherry Summer Dress and I chose to wear the shrug from that dress with this outfit.  

Wearing hot pink always makes me think of candy, and while putting this outfit together and taking pictures all I could think of were some great songs from the 80s about candy, or with candy in the lyrics.  So, I end this blog with some great pictures and some great lyrics about Candy!!!  Oh Yum.. I think I’ve got a toothache.

I know a guy who’s tough but sweet
He’s so fine, he can’t be beat
He’s got everything that I desire
Sets the summer sun on fire

I want candy, I want candy

Bow Wow Wow

Snapshot_004Candy, candy, candy I cant let you go
All my life youre haunting me
I loved you so
Candy, candy , candy I cant let you go
Life is crazy
I know baby
Candy baby

Who can take a sunrise
Sprinkle it in dew
Cover it in chocolate
and a miracle or two?

The candyman
The candyman can
The candyman can cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good
(from Willy Wonka and I watched it ALL through the 80s) 🙂

It’s truly hard to believe that I’m still going through boxes and gifts from the bloggers’ appreciation week.  Actually, it’s not that hard at all to think seeing how we were treated like royalty and given gifts beyond our wildest dreams. The dress I’m wearing was what I chose with my Sexy2nd gift card and I love it so much! 

I chose to wear it today and style it with some red in honor of Memorial Day and while I don’t think that is what was in mind when the designer originally made it, I just felt like it was the perfect outfit to wear to a quiet place and observe solemnly all those that have lost their life fighting for our country.  I will not get into my political thoughts or views about war or the military.  But I will say that anytime someone loses their life it is a sad tragedy for all the families and loved ones that are left without that person.  I hope that everyone tonight is safe and not in harms way.

Late Night Thanks…

I just rushed home from work so I could make sure and get my blog of appreciation in to the one and the only CALLIE CLINE!

Thank you so much for everything you did this past week.  Words can not thank you enough.  So, I hope that my sacrifice of sleep in honor of you serves as the greatest form of thanks I can give!

Wow! This Blogger feels appreciated!!!

Snapshot_003Snapshot_002Snapshot_004

I know we are all still opening boxes and feeling just completely amazed still (at least I know I am)

So many designers were just so wholeheartedly kind to all the bloggers this past week, and I just can’t thank all of them enough.   Some of those fabulous designers made sure to tell us that we need not blog about the given items that they truly were a gift, but I find myself just having to say Thank You.  That, and well I have a completely new inventory that I must wear now, and of course I blog what I am wearing.

From the bottom of this little bloggers heart and the tips of her fingers.  Thank You! 

Thank You to all the designers for showing such amazing talent to inspire me to write about you and style myself.  And, most importantly, thanks to Callie Cline for scheduling everything.
