Earning My Stripes (New Post @ Second Life Fashion Addict)

Pushing through when you are fighting fatigue and exhaustion is a special kind of ability, and one I seem to be lacking for the most part. Today I have managed to do it, but who knows what tomorrow may bring. I figure every push is like earning my stripes, so to speak, and over my lifetime, I have more stripes than places to display them. This adorable look came together with a little bit of luck and a whole lot of awesome pieces from a lot of different places. Really it is my favorite way to blog, although time consuming, pulling together a really unique look is what makes me most happy. When you combine well made items in new and unexpected ways, you can really express your own sense of style.

It's been a bit of a week for me, and being under the weather does not agree with me so very much. It certainly gets in the way of my ability to blog, which is a shame because there is so much worth blogging on the grid lately. When I finally made my way to The KUSTOM 9 over a week ago, I managed to snag up so much greatness that this post is full of it, in a good way that is. Finds included this adorable AMITOMO Black Cat Clutch, which makes for an awesome Gacha prize, you have to love the glowing eyes.  I also got a chance to wear this great new TRUTH HAIR in-store release called Nissa with a fabulous fishtail braid over one shoulder. I do love the reds when I wear TRUTH HAIR, they are just so foxy, which makes this adorable *katat0nik* Fox Ice Cream Bar the perfect treat for an evening on the pier. Lots of animal tails in this blogging tale, and lets hope that my health is on the upswing.

This post took a whole lot of effort to piece together, just like a patchwork quilt. I took me days to get the style together, then to hunt for a cute location, another two to finally get my photos done (thank you SL), and yet another day to track down all my location SLurls and event landmarks. I hope it was worth it, it takes a lot of work to look this cute. Thank goodness for great new hair from .ploom.Missy is available now exclusively at The Big Show. I almost always wear my hair up like this in my everyday, and the pumped up bun on top is pretty accurate (even though my hair is very salt and pepper, white/grey and black). It's mainly because I am way overdue for a trim, like years overdue, and my long hair reaches my lower back. Not sure if it looks as cute in real life as it does on my avatar, but I am going with it.

COLLABOR88 - The Fates: Atropos

COLLABOR88 - The Fates: Atropos (New Post @ Second Life Fashion Addict)

This month marks the three year anniversary of COLLABOR88, and it is a shopping experience of truly epic proportions. The theme is Odyssey, and it is entirely evocative of Greek and Roman Pantheon Gods and Goddesses. I opted to evoke the three Fates, or Moirae, with three looks to match the three Goddesses.

Considered the cruelest of the three Fates, Atropos wielded the scissors that cut the string of life spun and measured by the other two Moirae. This final cut was the decisive time of death, ending the life of the mortal.  I choose to think she was merely misunderstood, and decided to set this cruel beauty in the night, sky full of stars, after the sun has set on a life.  Atropos is wearing white here, a color long associated with death, in this fantastic sexy gown by 
Baiastice. The gown, Exclusively available at COLLABOR88, comes in a shockingly sexy version with bared breasts if you dare. I opted to cover her arms in bangles and gems to symbolize the wealth of knowledge accumulated in a life well lived, all of these are new from aisling. and yours to win at Fantasy Gacha Carnival. The stunning hair, sandals, poses, and even the piercing are all to be found at COLLABOR88 exclusively, until this round ends, but don't wait till your thread is cut short. Happy Three Years COLLABOR88, the fates of shoppers everywhere are happily in your hands.

This month marks the three year anniversary of COLLABOR88, and it is a shopping experience of truly epic proportions. The theme is Odyssey, and it is entirely evocative of Greek Pantheon Gods and Goddesses. I opted to evoke the three Fates, or Moirae, with three looks to match these three stunning Goddesses. 

Lachesis would measure the thread spun by the younger Clotho, and the length of the thread was said to determine the length of a life.The Moirae were the personification of destiny, but ultimately were considered blameless since humans had free will and ultimately they could be held responsible for their own failures. I wanted to put my modern version of Lachesis in this most fabulous watch combination from [MANDALA], which is utterly breathtaking in it's detail and realism. An entire mortal lifespan is but a day to an immortal, so I placed Lachesis in the bright light of day. This stunning skin by -Glam Affair - is also available Exclusively at COLLABOR88, and I selected a natural unadorned fresh face since it will take make-up layers well. The hair, gown, and sandals are also COLLABOR88 Exclusives.
