These Are a Few of My Favourite Things…

Ooooh hasn’t the SL Fashion Blogosphere been full of drama the last couple of weeks? At first I thought some of it was interesting and often amusing (I’ve even commented on portions of it), but now I’m a bit bored. I don’t know about you, but my RL has enough drama of it’s own without introducing it into my virtual existence. I want my SLife to be about kittens and fluffy things… can we soon return to the days when we emptied out our handbags and photographed the contents to show each other (now, wasn’t that fun girls and boys?).

There was a little grumpiness and talk of feeling uninspired amongst my blogging peers recently and I wondered if the negativity was dragging everyone down. I’m glad to see us going back to what I think we do best… finding and photographing and telling our readers about our favourite things. That’s certainly what I’m going to concentrate on and I’ve resolved to not read any posts that even sniff at drama. Incidently, this probably means that this post will contain typo’s as technically I cannot read it, as it talks about drama.

Anyway, moving on; in an attempt to lighten the mood and spread some love, the items I’ve featured in this post today are those things (old and new) in my virtual wardrobe that I adore, find myself reaching for all the time and (unlike drama) never tire of. I hope you like them too <3.

Please note that I won’t be permitting any comments about drama on this post. I’d love to hear from you though if you like my favourite things and please feel free to comment in general on bunnies, flowers, poetry and such. If anyone really does feel the need to ‘have a go’, they could always Plurkerise me. If they’re shy, I believe it can be done in secret with chums, but I’m hoping that I will be considered for a public slagging off. That way more traffic will be driven to my blog, my visitor numbers will increase, and my life will feel complete ;).

Tongue in Chic…

Those of a sensitive disposition should STOP READING NOW!!!

OK, couldn’t resist eh? I recently had the need to research 1950’s advertising for a RL project I’ve been working on. I love the style of those old adverts, but found the innocence of some of the copy and the sexism hysterical. Well, in my experience, advertising only works if it appeals to the target market and it can only do that if it reflects the opinions and values of the time; so I say ‘don’t blame the ad man!’ However, you can blame me (if you like) for my cheeky and somewhat saucy take on it. But remember, I did warn you :P.

The HOC Industries label first came to my attention in February when I spotted their Sneakers on Xstreet which were featured as the best selling item. With a price label of just L$30 I wondered at first ‘where’s the catch’, but thought I would give them a go considering it a low risk purchase. From the moment I rezzed them, I was in love and I’ve been a big HOC Industries’ fan ever since. Not only are these shoes beautifully crafted from custom textures and sculpties, but they are scripted too meaning that with every pair you get multiple choice colour options. The shoes featured in this post are priced between L$10 and L$30 which is absolutely remarkable value. Guu Nishi, designer of the label, is a thoroughly nice lady and in my opinion a true champion of SL fashion. HOC Industries items can be purchased on Xstreet or at the main store inworld.

*** The generosity of SL content creators never ceases to amaze me and I have 2 designers to thank for helping me put this post together. Antonia Marat, designer of the artilleri label, is the undisputed queen of everything SL retro. She’s recently revamped her main store and launched a separate store for artilleri HOME which is where today’s first and third shots were taken. Many thanks to her for allowing me to take the shots there and for custom making the fabulous tray of muffins for this post. A big thank you also to Tater Skytower for supplying the Cola Machine used in the last shot. Tater is content creator for Taters vintage stuff and this is the place to go for all things Coco Cola! ***
