For Acha: Same Damn Thing

Acha has been an icon in our fashion world, and has done so with a warm heart and generous spirit.  She’s shared herself with us, without any boundaries between her physical and virtual self.  I will miss her unique and stunning sense of style, and her elegant writing, and just . . . seeing her around on the feeds. <3

For Acha: Same Damn Thing

Acha and I weren’t close friends, but she’s still played a major influence in my SLife.  Her blog has inspired me and introduced me to awesome new-to-me stores.  She encouraged me when I first started blogging.  She encouraged me when I first started creating.  She wrote copy for my store when I was first starting out, and her generous words inspired me to work harder and be better, to try and live up to her elegant descriptions.  By including me as a tiny part of her blog in various Not Me posts, she gave me a sense of being part of the greater community.  By featuring early Vanitas Vesture on her blog, she made me feel like I was “somebody” in my own small way.

So, in honor of Acha, here’s my response to the Same Damn Thing challenge.  (Acha’s original concept is here, and more info on the redux is here.) › Continue reading

So, I’m going to jump on the bandwagon and take part in this week’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge.


I’m such a sucker for a monochromatic palette.  Perhaps it’s the influence of the color theory class I took back in the day, but I love value scales; here we transition from white to black as we work our way down the outfit.


I opted for gold-tone jewelry with silver and black accents here.  While silver-tone would have been truer to the gray challenge, I like the warmth that the gold brings to the look.

back to high school

Phire Zuhra of Style Genesis challenged bloggers to show off their high school style, and asked us what crowd we hung out with then.  This was a tough one for me — I drifted along the periphery of several different crowds: the Ivy-league-bound nerds, the drama kids, the band geeks, the student council preps, the stoners, the goth kids.  I had friends in every crowd, but never really belonged to any.  I guess I was a bit of a loner then, too.

Big Bad Blogger Challenge: Entry #1

So, I’ve decided to take part in the Big Bad Blogger Challenge.  It will indeed be a challenge for me.  I usually take hours on a blog entry, from taking initial pictures in world, editing them, writing the blog, tracking down slurls, to finally making sure to promote it a bit.  So, to do an entry a day, I’ll have to really work on my speed.

I missed the first day of the challenge, as I was out of town, but I’ll answer those questions now. 

How long have you been a blogger?
About six months?  I’ve been blogging at this site since early February, and I blogged a bit at another site for a while. 

How has it enriched your life?
That’s an interesting question.  Thanks to blogging, my SLife is definitely richer.  I’ve become a part of a community, and made wonderful friends, whom I may not have known otherwise.  I’ve improved my both my in-world pictures and my PhotoShop skills.  I think consistently writing and editing has been good; it keeps the mind active, and keeps those skills fresh.  I continue to be inspired by my fellow bloggers to do better . . . to be a better blogger, to be a better designer.  As a new designer, the blogging community, through Plurk and blog entries, has been amazingly supportive, which means the world to me.

On the other hand, the time I spend as an SL blogger takes away from RL time, which I have a hard time with.   Frankly, I’d rather spend the day working on a blog post than taking care of RL chores, and have been working to find a balance between the time I spend in each world.  I suppose, in that way, it presents an opportunity to improve my time management skills.
