It was either a dark and stormy night … or Monday …. I always seem to get those two confused. Grateful that Australia has just the cure …. Alcohol called “Dark and Stormy.” It is ginger-beer and rum, already pre-mixed in a can, and tends to make you forget what day of the week it even is …. If we tried that in Canada it just wouldn’t be the same … working with what we have we would end up with maple syrup and rum …
This dress was on special for $100L at RFYRE. Sometimes you just have to dress to suit your mood … wish you could do this in real life – put on the appropriate skin and shape and attach warning lights so innocent children and small animals can safely escape …
I was particularly pleased to find grandpa’s boots for sale … used to wear them as a kid and fall and hurt myself … I guess it is true what they say in fashion .. what is old is new again … or maybe grandpa was right when someone tried to sell him some “antiques.” He growled and said, “Had some of those years ago … we called them “junk”…. right before we hoisted them off the back of the truck into the dump…” He would be so proud of me having paid $500L for these puppies …. But hey … sometimes a girl just has to stomp ….. and besides … it’s Monday ….

Being impossible simply means that you do not conform to what is expected and like it or not … that is me. I have never conformed, never gone along with the crowd (even in those tough teenage years when it is the biggest source of angst) – I have always embraced and celebrated all that makes me different. So this dress, and Escher, have my heartfelt thanks for the willingness to be impossible.

Scarlett Niven is quite an amazing woman - she has done some amazing things in SL and is just getting started. You should definitely check out her website which is just one small branch of her many undertakings. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with a woman like her and to learn. All joking aside, some of these women are incredibly talented and work very hard. It is easy to laugh at the foibles but I never mean it to undermine the substance ... just to lighten the mood and mostly to laugh at myself.

Cupcakes is having huge sales on their skins right now – she has packed up some of the skins with a great outfit – several different options – all for @250L and throughout the week she has done some great quick deals of buy any pack and get a $1000L gift card. Cupcakes is always generous and always gives good value for the dollar. I have to say these skins are some of my favourites and I have so many it is probably obsessive on my part now …. But I promise I do not have them lined up in a neat row in a cupboard ( no they are in a neat row in the filing cabinet …. Lol)
TP’d to the shoes – they have closed. That happens a lot to stores after I have been there … something about the bylaws and nudity and inappropriate behaviour … I always leave before the police show up so I usually don’t get the follow up … unless on those rare occasions they find out where I live, arrest me, I go to court and part of my probation is dealing with the aftermath … then I usually get lots of pics and details …..this one … no idea ….
Hair love love love the short cuts … this one is obviously one of my favourites.

Ok I admit I closed my eyes and squealed a little bit going through the door into POSH for the first time .... – just because the whole Spice Girl thing drives me a little crazy. When Sporty Spice had the issue with her weight BALLOONING out of control and all the media referring to her as a “fat pig” – and they had the pics to prove it – I was generally disheartened when she showed up in my home town. Saw her in person …. she was … (please be downsitting folks this is gonna be a shocker, cover your mouths and be prepared to gasp …. ) a Size 8. YUP!!! It was then I realized just how sickly the rest of them are just to be able to pull off a great photo that we can all pin up on our walls and die trying to achieve. (picking up my dart and throwing it at my almost obliterated pic of the Spice Girls)
HOWEVER – this POSH store is nothing at all like that – great clothes, generous gifts. This nice little number is just sitting all packaged with a pretty bow on the coffee table for you.

Well probably not YOU ... they really want ME ... but the poster says "Uncle someone wants YOU" so if I said ME it would not have been so darn intelligent and cute and you probably would not be reading this right?
I went for a job interview once. It was for a temporary office position. They said dress conservatively so I put a bra on – figured I could still get away without the panties because who would notice and if the interview was gonna go that way … they would have called it a “date.”
They asked me a lot of tough questions like “What do you think are your best assets?” So I draped myself across his desk and told him I found it really hard to chose and I asked for his opinion. He seemed to be really seriously considering which he liked best until that whiny (pinch your nose when you talk and make your voice really high and affected like …)secretary came in and gasped and dropped her steno pad. It sorta wrecked the moment … you know…
Anyway I wanted to know which office was gonna be mine and who would be decorating it. I also told him I didn’t like my desk cluttered up with uneccessary things like those machines everyone sits at and moves their hands on.
Whiny-voice said there was another appointment waiting and so I had to go. She said they would get back to me … but something in the way she rolled her eyes and snorted …. I am pretty perceptive you know …. I am still waiting for the phonecall … it’s been 3 years … do you think I should call them? I know, I know …. Tooo pushy right?

My flight arrived under cover of darkness …. I hailed a cab and headed over to my destination . The cab pulled up outside a seedy neighbourhood. “This can’t be right,” I protested to the cabby. He looked at the piece of paper I held in my hand and pointed at the number on the dilapidated old shack …it was definitely the right address. Reluctantly I got out and walked up to the front door as the cabby sped off …. there was no going back. I walked across the old tire tubes, around a broken down washing machine, and skirted around various piles of dirty laundry … yep this had to be the place. Finally I reached the door and started to knock when the door swung open, protesting as it did with a saddened groan. Something about the sound was sadly familiar as it called to a place within my own soul. It took a minute for my eyes to adjust the room was completely in the dark. It seemed somehow appropriate to the circumstances that had brought me there. As my eyes swept over the room …. cobwebs and broken dreams lay everywhere …. an old child’s science kit was neatly laid out on an upside down cardboard box and someone had crudely written across the box “Lab – KEEP OUT – NO girls allowed.” And then I saw him … sitting on a wooden crate, crayolas in one hand, etch-a-sketch in another ….muttering something about new and improved versions of SL …. I had found Mr. Linden!!!

Summer in Australia is the best argument for nudity I’ve ever known … but if you have to put something on, please God let be light and airy like this little cover up top from Twosome. It comes with a white bikini and a couple of variations on the top including a see through version which looks nice over other colors. Not that it is summer here now (I am under my heavy doona shivering, closing my eyes really tight and pretending it’s hot ok … don’t you dare wreck my delusions …. Damn it is cold here in the winter).
I probably am considered to be running around in my underwear here but I love the patterns and colors of some of the leggings that come with the long dresses and like to use them with outfits. (hey this is my little imaginary world … I can do what I like) I can wear leggings and feel like the party is always happening AND the flower patterns cover up the prison stripes really well too. Could be why that gang of Fashionistas on that street the other day were all pointing and laughing at me and calling me “panty-head” – even though I was NOT wearing them on my head … I swear!!
The flower collar is not because I am trying hard to fit in with the real fashion bloggers but simply because it is the only way to cover up my regular collar … slipped off the leash again .. hehehehe.

I like some of the thought that went into this outfit … the little veil with the hat has some nice embroidered detailing on it that matches the see through underskirt. Lots of little “peeks” with this dress that make it a bit naughty (which I always need encouragement with) and sexy. The garters and the striped stockings finish the look and I love the laced detailing on the shrug – the front, and particularly the back.
So I was hanging out trying to act like a candy cane but people kept asking about getting their hair cut, which I finally started doing ….and hey it is amazing what you can get away with by just saying “oooh “ a whole lot, and “this soooo suits your face …,” and “soooo chic ….” (that’s my French classes coming through there folks). Even the one guy … when I accidentally cut of part of his ear …. I just said, “Van Gogh baby … sooo in this season ….” I made a whole lot of money and am going shopping now. But if you buy this dress you better not be hanging out on my corner ….

So now that I have my hair like this I am just gonna' stand myself in a corner each night … not that it could move being sorta' cemented in with shellac (ran out of hairspray). I think I have to register it as a lethal weapon though cause one of the hairs came loose and it almost poked my eye out.
Anyway … this dress – the complete outfit you see here is FREE!!! AND (you might want to sit down for this one …. The one free click you make … gives you several color options). So run right over to Bijou (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Bijouaholic/156/138/58 )and get yours (it’s down in the basement wayyyyy over in the right hand corner along with 3 other freebies…) Um … don’t mention my name on account of I was so excited I kind of made a commotion and was escorted off the premises by one of those automated shop assistants who let me tell you … was a lot more animated than you would think ….woooo did she say some words to me that I had never heard…..(wrote them all down in my little book).
The shoes are ones I bought some time ago .. you know my earlier confession … love them and no idea where I got them or how much they cost but MadamG Zagato designed them and she does not seem to be doing shoes anymore from reading her profile.

It may not be considered the polite thing to do but I do believe that people need to know if there is a problem with customer service. Let me first say that I have found 99.9% of vendors and designers to be not only fair, but generous when they have made mistakes. They are prompt to rectify them and often provide heartfelt apologies, and it isn’t unusual for them to send a little something extra – which they have no obligation to do.
However, I want to warn you about the customer service at two particular stores. Kiko’s and JM Mai. Both are skin stores and was the reason for my visits. In both incidents I purchased a large number of skins from their stores and brought other customers to them. Concerning Kiko’s – there is a card in place that we were encouraged to buy – having enough points to earn us another skin. We paid the extra money, went to purchase the other skin and the card would not work. The gentleman was standing right there, observed us buy the original skins, buy the card, and attempt to purchase the free skin. When we explained we had not received the skin, he suddenly was unable to understand us and he refused to honor the cards. We left after wasting more time than I can say there. A letter to him formerly requesting our money back was not replied to.
With JM Mai, I purchased a skin, checking and double checking which one I wanted, selected my choice, checked again, and clicked to buy. I accepted the purchase, and later that day when I went to put the skin on, I realized it was the wrong skin. I went back to the store to double check the one I clicked on was clearly the one I wanted. It was – it read one thing but the skin I got when I clicked on it was not the skin that was delivered to me. I sent a letter to the owner explaining and she conversed quite well with me until about half way through the exchange when she claimed to again not be able to understand English well. In fairness to her, she had that same note on her profile at the time – even though that has now been removed and replaced with an elaborate statement which is most likely intended for me concerning this incident. (if it isn't .. she obviously has a lot of customers who are not happy) I knew I had not chosen the wrong button because I have done that in the past and am so careful about making my purchase now, checking and double checking before I click AND I went back to the store to check again. Even if it was my fault – after myself and my four friends had purchase some 14 skins between us it would have been good customer service to at least have been polite to me, and even provided me with the skin I was missing. We are talking about $3.50 here – not a lot of money to keep a happy customer. She could easily see from the records I personally had purchased 8 or 9 of her skins, so how much was I trying to rip her off? Even when I wrote her that I would not be shopping there again and I would not encourage others to support her, there was no attempt to apologize or rectify the situation.
Let me be clear that it is not the quality of her work I am complaining about – she is a talented and gifted designer and I loved her skins, but unfortunately her beauty does not seem to apply to her personal integrity.
It may not be that big a deal to consider the money I lost in these transactions as it is equally small on my part – however there are a goodly number of people who are in SL who don’t have money to waste and for them it would be a huge loss. She had no way of knowing which I was, but she could verify I had only been on SL for a few months at the time. I guess the old saying stands – BUYER BEWARE.
Wanting to end on a positive note – again let me reiterate that this is not the case with most of the designers and store keepers, and you should always contact them if you have a problem. Often these things are something they are grateful to know about and to rectify – such as a product not being delivered or a glitch in the system. They usually prefer you to send a notecard as they are busy people and their mail often gets capped easily. They will need to know the date, the transaction number, and the name of the item purchased as well as a brief outline of your concerns. Give them a little bit of time – remember not all of us live in the same part of the worl. Always read their profile information as it often gives important info on how to deal with problems – they may even direct you to a different person who handles customer service.
I also advocate dropping a notecard once in awhile to compliment those store owners and designers you admire and appreciate - sometimes it is all they need to brighten their day and keep them going. It takes such little time and can mean so much.

Chose simply elegant strappy white sandles from Shiny Things at $100L. Lots of colors to choose from here.
The new skin (for me) from Glance is a favourite – I believe Whinter Paine introduced me to this one as well. The hair from Cake has a bit of old Hollywood Glamour in it and flows while I walk, swirling around with every movement. Very feminine.

Demure today. Found this warm earthy brown jacket at the Costa Rica shopping complex – which I really enjoyed exploring. It is by Aleida Rhode for Fashion Nomads which covers everything from jeans to Haute Couture. This piece comes with a couple of sleeve options and a great scarf which allows for greater versatility for your wardrobe. As the name implies, the body of the jacket appears to have a mosaic like texture, with a plain matching collar and lapel. The large belt has a textured silver buckle for some nice detailing.
I paired the jacket with pants taken from a Donna Flora $10L outfit from her special table up near the front of the store that always has several steals like this. Cal Rogers is the designer and the pants seem to me to be of a raw silk. Nice compliment of the beige with the brown jacket – both warmer tones.

Jewellery once again from Chloe and chosen for its quiet compliment to the dress. My hair is from Little Heaven. I love the chic look of the short short hair styles. Lara skins are so pretty that they can take the short hair and still let you achieve a very feminine presentation.

The earrings may seem pricey but are so versatile and the set comes with both black and white pearls and options for style. Pearls are always a basic for any wardrobe.

Instead of boots, I paired it with a simple pair of black Mary-Janes and threw on some casual hair. Kurotsubaki hair is a great buy at only $100L per hair and while you might think that styles are young (as per the pics used to promote them) they are actually quite effective when worn. Try them!!

So I searched for the designer and it appears her store is gone or moved. Still ... I want to credit her Cattleya Harker ... I like the 70's feel to this ... feel like I should have a long cigaretter holder in one hand and a glass of white wine in the other ... lounging in front of the fire. How come they could make smoking look so glamourous in those old movies??
One thing I really appreciate about SL is that even though a store may not be exactly my style ... there are thousands of little gems like this waiting to be discovered and with a little imagination ... you are set. No matter what, I always appreciate the work and effort of the designers here on SL - their vision is always entertaining and captivating ... and always manages to inspire me. Kudos.

Ballet pink is one of my favourite colours and she does it beautifully here. I usually don’t match outfits with the same designer jewellery but her jewellery is equally terrific. I like her things because she pays attention to size and scale. If I am going to wear something I would like it to be at least seen – especially the earrings.
Although her style is a throw-back to the old holly-wood glamour I paired the look with a much more modern and simple hair style from VintageWear Hair which works well with the outfit.
Shoes are from Battle Fairy and I could not find them when I went back to check so I am not sure they are even available. Retro Hobo and Slips Ons Peaches are similar and include a matching handbag – they sell for $300L. Battle Fairy(Grace Selene) does fantastic shoes and when I went back to check and took Whinter, we both overspent our budget.
