Review: Girls Night In with 5th & Oxford, LeLutka and WTW


This past Saturday evening was ‘Girls Night In’ with Luna Jubilee (above left) and Strawberry Singh (above right). We got rid of the boys by encouraging them to organize an all night poker tourney over at Ranger‘s house. The beer would be flowing, the chips falling and the Ricky Martin tunes would be blasting enough that we wouldn’t hear from them for quite some time.

We picked up a ton of 80’s movies – Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Moonstruck, Pretty in Pink, The Princess Bride … and Strawberry insisted on Pride & Prejudice. I took the bag with the flicks from her as we left Blockbuster and stashed P&P under her passenger side seat. It’s rented on her card and I’m okay with that.

We ate cookie dough and did one anothers hair, nails and makeup during our movie marathon. Luna kept the night rowdy as the mixologist. And once all the movies were done we ordered in some live entertainment. I’ve just got to cross my fingers and pray that Ranger never notices that all the one-dollar bills are missing from our swear jar.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

GIA Style Card: Living Dead Girl


Some critics say that blogging fashionists are mindless followers, wandering about in mobs and wailing on about the same trends as everyone else. A recent SLsecret postcard at Shopping Cart Disco brought this sentiment out, stating “Bloggers are like sheeps with no brains that just follow trends”. Where this may be an accurate statement for some, it is definitely not true for all.

In considering how to dress up for All Hallows Eve this year, I couldn’t ignore the zombie allegory. And the recent Zombiefest gave me the chance to get in touch with my undead side before the onset of All Hallows Eve.

Today’s style card is the fallen fashionista, once elegant and composed, now disheveled, having fallen victim to mob mentality and unoriginal thought. Her shambling gait, courtesy of Olive Juice, allowing her to follow the herd in constant search for what all Living Dead Girls crave: braaaaaaaaaaaaains.

Dear Fashionistas and Fashionistos: this Halloween one would hope that you would forgo a few accents of decorative flair and guard yourselves from the ravenous blood-lusting appetites of the ungodly undead with a firearm or two … and maybe a protective relic.

Happy Halloween.

GIA Style Card: Uptown Girl


Over 26 years ago Billy Joel musically fantasized about the object of his affection: Uptown Girl – a being of supreme feminine elegance and urban sophistication with “downtown” romance aspirations. While professing his working class love for the goddess, Joel laments:

Uptown girl
You know I can’t afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She’ll understand what kind of guy I’ve been
And then I’ll win

Chances are, the Uptown Girl can afford her own pearls these days. She just needs her “downtown” man to keep the bed warm.

Zaara’s Larin skirt is an ideal supplement to the wardrobe of the Second Life girl living in her “uptown world”. The skirt is available in 3 pattern types: art prints (forest-splash, copper-rust, silver-lilac), neutrals (ebony, ash, ivory) and solid tartans (wine, navy, tan). Narin’s assymetrical-cut hem, high waist and curve-hugging, satiny design easily creates a bouncy-flouncy, flirtatious spirit.
