I woke up this morning thinking about this. This is going to sound weird but I tend to dream about my styles and what I want to do.

Stand4Love
There was this boy in high school, with whom all the girls went gaga over, myself included. Wow, he was gorgeous and his eyes, well you could just get lost in them. Anyway, we all graduated and went our separate ways. One weekend years later I am home for a visit, my bff and I (both of us straight) stop in at the local gay bar to visit a friend who tended bar. After a couple of drinks my friend spots that boy from high school. With utter happiness and yes a bit of shock not to mention sadness. (yes he was that good looking) We catch up, finding out that he shared his life with his partner. He explained to us that he never thought of himself as gay. He just fell in love with another man…

Pink Blossom

It never occurred to me until that moment that you could fall in love with anyone, whether it be gender, race or religion. Love is an emotion, a very strong emotion. Love is blind. It should never be a mistake. That’s why I stand for love. Who has the right to tell us who we should marry.

Pink Blossom 2
I don’t know where he is today, it has been many years since I have seen him but where ever he is, I is my wish that he happy and in love.

Thank you for reading my story. Isobel

Day of Rest

Here are my answers to Strawberry’s latest meme.

1. Who did you speak to last inworld today? Cade Elkhart. I call him my 7 year old newbie friend. He still runs around SL in the same newbie skin he started with. He is one of my oldest dearest friends inworld and only see him log in once every 8 months or so. I was surprised today when he popped in. It was wonderful catching up with him.

2. Who has taught you most about SL? Imaki (he is no longer in SL)

3. Who do you turn to for help? Jackson Halpern (when he was around) and my sl/rl boyfriend Metalclad Metaluna. When neither guy is around, I have used the Miss Virtual World Academy group chat to ask for help. I have met some wonderful people there.

4.Who is the most entertaining person on your friend list? Jackson Halpern I miss him so much.

5. Do you speak to your SL friends outside of SL? Yes I do, but only a few.

6. Are you part of a community or family inworld? Nope

7. Are you usually around a lot of people or do you spend most of your time alone inworld? I am alone most of my time. I am a bit of a recluse in sl. I have a hard time trusting people so I stick to myself.

Sometimes it feels like you are slipping away, so I hold on tight. I know I am being silly, that you’re not going anywhere.

Sometimes it feels like you are being pulled away. I know I am being silly, but I still hold on tight. You are not going anywhere.

Life is changing, always changing. Moving on, so I hold on tight. I know I am being silly. We aren’t going anywhere.

Eye Candy is Jackson Halpern, the bestest friend a girl can have. ❤ you sweetie.

This is what I wore. I started out with something completely different. A friend offered to give me some advice and well that advice led me to this outfit, helping me step up my styling. Thank you Cao for your much needed help. The theme was Spring Haute Couture.  I rocked the casting and made it in. Yay Me!!!!

Will add styling soon. Thanks for reading!  ❤ Isobel Oleander

     I had told a friend that I would blog her poses and after a bit of time I have finally gotten myself organised enough to do it. This is my first blog. Sue Hunniton is a pose maker in second life. She is owner of  Pics n Poses. She makes custom poses as well as photography. I do not know how to add a LM but here is the info where you can find her shop. zExposure (53, 210, 901). You can look her up in sl. Below is a sample of one of her couples pose. I am pairing my style with her poses. So basically a two in one blog post. The handsome model with me is Jackson (my bestie). I even took the photo on his land which he beautifully did himself. I am very pleased how the photo came out.

Jack thank you for agreeing to do this with me. You look great!

Jack sent me the following photo tonight. Hehe the bear on my boot is looking at his boot. Love it!!!!!

This is my style with Jackson, my best friend. It’s rather simple. We picked out matching jackets and just styled around them. This style took a while, way longer than I had hoped. So many bumps stood in the way, but we did it. We got through it. Better late than never.

The last couple of months have been rough and I have put you through a lot but you have held my hand when I needed it. Turned on a light when it was too dark for me to see. Let me cry when all I wanted to do was cry and kicked me in the ass if I was being unfair. I am thankful each and everyday that you walked into my life.

2011 is almost over and I wanted this to be my last post of the year. Its time to move on into a new year with new possibilities. I look forward to continuing the path that I am on and I look forward to more styles with my best friend Jack. You mean the world to me. I love you! Thank You

Please don’t give up on what you enjoy doing. I didn’t! You made sure of that.

Thank you for reading and a Happy and Healthy New Year!!!!    ❤ Isobel Oleander

This is how the story went
I met someone by accident
Who blew me away
Blew me away
And It was in the darkest of my days
When you took my sorrow and you took my pain
And buried them away, buried them away

      I got this homework assignment in my modeling class last week to prepare two styles with the theme of Tartan Army. My very first thought was yikes.  A friend googled it while we were talking and found several links. I did look through them but to be honest  did not find inspiration.  I ended up taking the week off from second life, probably not a smart idea but it was necessary.

     While on my break I did however research the theme.  Google is awesome. I first tried Tartan but still got no where. I then checked the market place. Still that big idea did not pop into my head. I went into sl and did a search in my inventory and found one item that was tartan. I thought great we are in business. It was a green coat with the tartan pattern.  Ok I can style around this, but two thoughts kept entering into my mind. One how do I add a military flair to it and two was it couture enough. Especially when you weren’t exactly sure what couture was. I looked it up but still didn’t have a great understanding of it. I asked a few friends if they felt any of my previous styles were couture. My BFF told me which ones were. Now I understand, I have something to work with.

I scraped the outfit I started working on and went back to research. I decided to look up military fashion and wow the ideas started flying. I went on Flickr remembering that I saw the theme done before so I was hoping that I would find something. I did. I saw this hat on the first picture that I came to. Yay she had a styling card so I wrote down where that hat came from. I went in and went to the store. As I was going to the hat the Jacket jumped out at me. I got it.  The idea just jumped into my head. I remember seeing the pants at a show and all I needed to do was add a little tartan and a few accessories.

         I was ready for class. I did very well and realized that I can do this, that I am good enough. Its taken me a while to realize it but in my opinion better late than never. I am very proud of myself and look forward to what else I can do. I can only get better from here. Thanks for reading. Style card below.

Ha got ya huh!  I just celebrated my real life birthday a few weeks ago, so to celebrate in second life I styled this outfit. Unfortunately I was ill and unable to present it.  A friend suggested that I blog about it anyway. So here it is. Right now it is in my inventory just sitting there. Someday I am sure I will have an opportunity to wear it.  I hope you enjoy the photos. Thanks for reading.  Isobel Oleander

Could not find the style card in my mess of an inventory so I will post it at a later date.

   I have been reading a ton of blogs lately about the vintage fair. So I thought I might just add one more. The other day (a special day) I went to the fair with a friend who means the world to me. We had gone one other time before but only got through a third of it, so we decided to finish it up. I have never really been into vintage, so I was pleasantly surprised to have found this dress. Of course I have heard and read about the .SHI coat and was on the look out for it. We walked into PM and wow there it was, in my opinion the most perfect dress.  I decided to keep this style simple.  The hair and dress were purchased at the fair, however the shoes were not. I just thought they went well.

 

  

I even found a few poses from the 50’s to showcase this dress. I hope that you were able to make it to the fair. It really was something. Oh and I did get the .SHI jacket. Can’t wait to style it. Thank you for reading. ❤  Isobel Oleander

After dealing with video card issues as well as health issues, I am ready to start blogging again. This was my first style I have ever done. I did it weeks ago for a contest that unfortunately has not finished. So I figured I would take it out of my inventory and dust it off. I wore it today for my Avenue class.

I have had a rough couple of weeks and was unable to style anything so I figured why not. It fit the theme of the homework. We were asked to show our style.  I believe I did a great job of capturing that. I receive some great comments that I agreed with and maybe one I did not.

I have a friend who likes to call me octopus lady because this skirt reminds him of an octopus. LOL I guess this outfit is now going to be known as “the Octodress” Thanks for reading. Style card below.
