A demo for Layla’s Brooklyn Top has lived in my Demos folder for some time now, waiting for me to decide if I should spend 500$L or not. That’s expensive for a blouse in one color, even one that can be “stripped” like this one can. You or someone you allow can click the blouse to make it open up in steps until it is completely off. In this picture, it is four steps from full closed. The transparency can be adjusted, too. The stripping feature makes it several blouses, I suppose, but I still hesitated to buy it. Then I was dressing and thought of it when I put on Zaara’s Arpora Fisherman’s Pants (fitted mesh) *so chic* (a gacha purchase; SLurl) and got an idea. The pair would make a great, casual outfit for Summer. I zipped to the store (SLurl) and bought the blouse right away.

For a Not A Fashion blog, I tend to post more than a few fashion items, such as this “Back In Black” set. This one of those outfits that started out completely different but wound up to be mostly the same. For example, the leggings started as bikini-style denim shorts. The cuffs were pewter bangles. The skin was my other blue Lumae skin, “Nyx.”
Click any image above to see it embiggened on Flickr. I tried to frame the shots so the issued wouldn’t show, such as the leg harness cutting into my thigh in certain poses, the leggings fighting with the boots, and etc. Below is the list of clothes you can use to make a similar outfit. Obviously, you can’t clearly see the nipples listed, the alphas aren’t listed at all, and I’m just too plain lazy to type in links for each item for your shopping convenience. Little tweaks such as a special shadow “tattoo” on my face and changing the lenses on the sunglasses shant be mentioned so stop reading now,
Once again I got involved, perhaps a bit too heavily this time, in creating an outfit, though this time totally without clothes! Since receiving my SLink Hourglass Body from my wife, I’ve been creating dressable versions with each of the skins I have so I can quickly switch back and forth. The Lumae Jewel Naamah skin (available only in-world) automatically made me think demon/devil/succubus so over time I’ve been tweaking from a basic form with self-made horns, fancy ears, and then some. Yesterday, I think I reached peak tweak.
The pointy ears are gone, but a nice set of Bento demon wings from [ATOMIC] and a Bento tail (also a gift from Angela) by [M.O.R.] really make the set.
Here is most of what is in this outfit (lipstick and a couple alpha layers aren’t shown), though the pictures in this post show a skirt and a pair of ankle boots.

The wings are nicely animated and while a bit finicky, the tail is well-animated, too. The tail and the animator are separate so I can have a bento kitty tail (from Ange, of course) on my Neko avatar. I might feature that sometime soon.
So, I saw the movie “Suicide Squad” the other day and when I got past some terrible acting by a couple big names, I was enthralled by the special effects, particularly the particle storm that surrounded a character named “The Enchantress.”
Of course, someone in Second Life was excited, too. Without hesitation, I bought the **CC** – Enchantress FX Set from ColeMarie Soleil. Then I bought another one for an alt. It is that good. Well, look at the picture.
While everyone else is running around as Harley from the movie, I’ll be lurking about as the only other well-done character.

As is my habit, before logging out last night I rummaged about in my closet for something to wear for the next day’s log-in. Unlike my usual attempts, I wound up with a full, coordinated outfit rather than my usual shorts and a t-shirt.
It isn’t often I find myself this impressed with an outfit. No, I’m not bragging. All the hard work was done by the designers. I merely put it all together. The only creative input I had, really, was the shape and the face, all enhanced by others, of course. To me, at least, it all works rather well. The kit is almost superhero-like, yes, but I was also thinking it would suit a festive holiday party (for grown-ups, certainly).
For those really curious, the Appearance panel should give you enough hints for tracking down the items for your own Inventory. Many thanks to my sister Threshin for the hair by pr!tty.
It has come to my attention today that I am a fashion blogger. Yes. The woman in the underboob T-shirt (Dirty Secrets applier on Maitreya Lara mesh body with a Plastik Astrali Pharagos skin and The Skinnery Echo eyes.), capri pants (coldLogic lepore.brown), boat shoes (ROC), and tied plaid button-up (erratic yvonne – tie-up) so-totally unfashionable outfit is a fashion blogger.
I was tugging on my Hair (TYLER-Dark- (no scripts) *REDGRAVE*) wondering why another day arrived with another landmark/notecard spam dropped into my Notifications. For once I got a response when I asked about it: “You are listed as a fashion blogger at https://bloggingsecondlife.com/ and I was sending an invite,” she said (entirely forgetting beforehand to mention anything about why she was spamming me). She was very nice about answering my questions and I suggested that she let whomever she spams know why they are receiving the information then we parted IM with smiles.
For anyone who thinks my posts about What’s in My Closet mean that this is a fashion blog, let me dispel that assumption. It isn’t. When I write about clothes it is because …
I was bored.
something I bought turned out to be very nice.
I haven’t blogged in a while and clothes are low-hanging fruit.
constantly writing about my breasts actually does get a bit old.
the top covering my breasts won’t detach and what I’m writing is a support case.
If anything, my blog is about a variety of stuff that amuses me in and about Second Life. Sometimes that means clothing, often it is in praise of women’s breasts, and once in a while I write about places or rant about some perceived wrong. With any luck, my blog is something you enjoy reading. Then we are both winners.
