“We’re all put to the test… but it never comes in the form or at the point we would prefer, does it?” ~ David Mamet

Put to the Test

The Arcade is coming soon and all the sneak previews are starting to emerge. Trace Osterham made this fabulous collection of carnival games, the kind you put your hand on or pull a lever and find out what your personality trait is. They have been scripted for one or two people…

“Grace in women has more effect than beauty.” ~ William Hazlitt

Grace

A beautiful look for the beautiful notion of “grace.” My dress is one of GraceHaddington’s newest, a beautiful joining of two mesh pieces to create a whole look . It comes with a texture-change HUD so you can choose between three color ways of the texture, and with the straps up the side and the leather inset, it skirts the border…

Que Sera Sera

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother
What will I be
Will I be pretty
Will I be rich
Here’s what she said to me

Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours to see
Que sera, sera
What will be, will be

~ “Que Sera Sera” performed by Corinne Bailey Rae

Que Sera Sera

I heard Corinne Bailey Rae singing this song as I was putting this outfit together and it seemed fitting. The look is…

My Perfect Vacation

“So many books, so little time.” ~ Frank Zappa

My Perfect Vacation

My perfect vacation would involve a few things: a cozy spot, solitude, and a collection of books. (I might throw in a fridge with water and a fresh supply of cantaloupe, spinach and heirloom tomatoes too plus a good music collection.) Sway Dench made my favorite kind of spot with her little boho wagon for The Liaison Collaborative—a cozy spot for…

“To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else’s heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter. He had…

Did We Live Too Fast?

Did We Live Too Fast?

Did we live too fast in this fantasy?
Sandcastles were the walls we made
Did we live too fast in this fantasy?
It tangles and it drifts away

~ “Did We Live Too Fast” by Got a Girl

Did We Live Too Fast

How come I connote cuttung edge, crazy fashion with Wicca Merlin? Maybe it’s her outre modeling and photography, her grasp of the possibilities of fashion rather than the realities, her desire to poke at the dark side…

A Day Away

081814 comp copy

“Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.  Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.  Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw…

“Music is … A higher revelation than all Wisdom & Philosophy” ― Ludwig van Beethoven

Sonata

I named this one Sonata because I was preparing this blog entry while I was at the House of Sakura, listening to the selections Lynn Mimistrobell chose for the evening. Every Sunday night, Lynn hosts a salon where she presents music, typically classical, and gives a lesson about the music, discussing its…

Lazaretto

My veins are blue and connected
And every single bone in my brain is electric

~ “Lazaretto” by Jack White

Lazaretto

I love Jack White and I love his latest songs. The cutting edge of his song “Lazaretto” seemed to match this look, most of which I picked up at District 5. Start with a top from CrystalDoll Lemon from her fully-made mesh and textures. It’s sexy without being over the top (no pun intended)…
