So What If It's Hot Out, I'll Still Be Wearing Black!

{Taken at Dead End City RP Sim}

Hello luvs, did you miss me?! I missed blogging but the break was severely needed. It's just something that happens. Not only to bloggers but everyone in SL. Real life steps in and is over demanding. There is really nothing you can do about it. I am not going to go into my innermost personal issues with you but I will say that it's not only RL work that is exhausting me, just a lot of alllll the thangs! I wish I could continue functioning without any of it getting in the way but that's just not how I am wired. So there is your answer as to why I haven't blogged every day. Plus, blogging for me has always simply been my creative outlet. A way for me to show off some of my favorite fashion designers and all my other fav things in SL. It was never about anything else. So when it became too demanding, I had to reassess it all. I love my sponsors btw. They have always been some of the most supportive and understanding people on the grid. I'd rather be without a sponsor than have anyone think I am just getting everything for free. I am certainly not. Hopefully I will be able to get in more blogging time now though. So anyway, onto other things!

Summer is here and holy hellballs it has been HOT! I live in one of the colder states in the US and even here we're in the 80's. Now for some of you I am sure that is ideal but for those of us thick blooded people who can't stand the heat...this is hellish. Plus humidity, eww!
Still, there isn't a day that goes by that I am not wearing my black clothes. The only other color I have is a dark purple haha. So many people will come and tell me they don't know how I can wear black in this weather could I not? It's my favorite color to wear and anyway...I don't feel much of a difference wearing anything else. Maybe that's just me. 

This fashion I am so enjoying in SL has made it's way into my RL. I have done my fair share of leg work looking for places online or in my surrounding area that sell clothing similar to this and I am starting to completely overhaul my wardrobe. That's been long overdue anyway!
Needless to say, when DRBC dropped this one, I was on it! This is NOT the only print that this awesome cardi comes in either! Make sure to head over to the DRBC Facebook Page, click LIKE and make sure to check out the other kickass prints this Cardi comes in. I honestly had a hard time picking which I wanted to blog. Hell you may see the others here too haha. Anyway, enough of me being chatty Gia! I will hopefully see you all again in a bit here! *le MUAHs!*

My Reflection

 {Taken at Dead End City Roleplay Sim}

Ever since I first logged into Second Life and learned about shopping and how much you could customize your look in this world, I was hooked! It is one of my absolute favorite things to do. 
Fashion in my real life doesn't get as much attention as my full time job and family takes up a lot of my time so, I take out all my fashion frustrations in Second Life lol. 
Finding 'That Perfect Look' is sometimes a battle for me. I can imagine something in my head but my inventory is pretty loaded. Even though I am anal with how I separate my things, it's still a lot to go through mentally. Occasionally though, I will luck out. 
Tapping into the whole 'Nu Goth' fashion once again, since it is my current obsession in SL and RL! When I see things in Sl that I can use to add to my collection for this style, I will snag it in a heartbeat! 
I loved these little tops by Dappa! Simple little crop tops with a dash of witchery and spice, I was okay with that! I ran into these awesome jeans at The Mens Dept. and I havent taken them off for awhile lol. This whole outfit in fact has been on me for a few days though I rotated through my Dappa tops. The pants have a leg insert alpha out your mesh body legs (these Jeans are rigged for TMP, Maitreya, and Slink) and this knee cap, as seen in the pic, is still there. The jeans include a skin hud for you to adjust to your skin color. It eliminates the issues we've had with mesh jeans that have holes in them for your legs to show through and things are poking out all over the place. The shoes I paired up with it pretty much sealed the deal. FK Designs never fails in providing some of the best textures in SL. I love the quality of these shoes and they're available in many prints!
I was also one of the lucky ones to be allowed early access to the Hair Fair this year. *cheers!* I'm always so thankful for those opportunities. Fighting the masses to get in there and shop all the things and get back to our platforms and then blog it all to share with everyone can be a pain in the mesh ass! 
For those of you that don't know, or don't remember...this is another great reason to shop in SL as all items sold at Hair Fair donate a portion of their sales to  Wigs for Kids!
This hair-do, along with several others, stood out. I found it unique in style. I loved the quality and I loved the bangs! So although I originally took the pic for this outfit wearing another hair-do, I changed it up last night and loved it this way even more.
Hope you're all enjoying your weekend! I will see you all again soon, until then, hang tight to your purses/wallets because oh-ho-ho these events!!

Oh and this!

Death Becomes Her {Elder Goth Style}

Well hello!
It hasn't been that long has it? Don't worry, I Have lots of stuff to show. I've been having quite a bit of fun with my SL, the styles...finding all the things I love!
Goth fashion is not new to Gia's World at all. In fact, it is worn often and happily! Those of you that have been residents of Gia's World for quite some time now, don't need to be told that either.
I almost see it like a challenge. With so many events always popping up around SL, there's only but a few that are darker themed ones. Suicide Dollz, Woeful Wednesdays, The Witching Hour. Then of course around Halloween, several pop up so that is usually when all the goths creep out of the coffins and come out to play! Fun times! But back to what I was saying, I almost find it to be a challenge that when I go to these events, the popular ones...Collabor88, Fameshed...Etc, for example, I pic out what things I can use to pair up with my gothy outfits. Sometimes I can luck out and find a few things both most times, I end up gathering stuff for my eclectic taste.
Needless to say, when I see darker stuff pop up randomly, I cheesy grin like a kid in a candy store!
Death Row Designs made this ahhhhh-mazing 15 LI carriage hearse and I... *sigh* fell in love with it! It has a HUD to change the color of the seats and curtains in the hearse and over a 100 poses, single, couple, clean and adult versions...for those girls that know.
It just so happened that my beloved DRBC released this gorgeous gown for Suicide Dollz!
I had no other thought in mind but to pair the two together for a fabulously dark Elder Goth look and I just adore it! DRBC has also released some super cute jackets at Suicide Dollz, you won't want to miss ANY of it!

A Trail of Black Kisses

{Taken Here}

Hello again! A week flies by in a blink of an eye, I swear it. I hope yours went great though! Mine was filled with lots of work but I cannot complain. 

I have thoroughly enjoyed this style as of recent. For the longest time, in my minds eye when someone would say 'Goth', I guess I only really embraced a more sort of Victorian styled Goth but this 'Nu Goth' fashion, as they call it, I love love. I think it goes back to a more 80's goth, can tap into some Stevie Nicks-witchery even and all of that makes me happy! I'm still exploring it, embracing it, and making it my own. 
There's so much of it in Second Life right now as the trend grows and grows but, as always, I am picky. That's why I love this outfit so much. By far onr of my favorites as far as style and the detail on what I am wearing is just always so awesome because of course, it's DRBC!
This cute lil dress is already on the Marketplace. At 125L it is just a steal. Originally a strappy dress cute for the summer but I topped it with another DRBC fav of mine, the Open Leatherette and whipped it all up with these so so cuuuute shoes! These are ones you have to have! Hudded, all kinds of colors and the bottoms of the shoes are just awesome too!

I wont be a chatterbox, as I am going to try and get stuff done for more posts so...grabby hands on all the thangs! 
Have a great weekend and hopefully, I will see all of you soon...until then <3 *Black Kisses*

"Sorrow Is Their Master, Cackling With Laughter.."

Such is life, real life....taking up all my precious blog time. That's alright though. It gives me a chance to bring a more artsy side to myself out and that is always my favorite way to blog.
With my lack of blog time, of course is the lack of time to be in game as well and that saddens me...and also beings many questions to mind.

Our relationships in SL are precious, I mean, at least they are to me. When I make a friend, I keep my friends. When I am not able to log in, I miss my friends. If I were a sim (as in a sim character from the game 'The Sims'), my social level would be dropping drastically. Most of my socializing is done in Second Life because, as I've said many times, I'm an introvert.
The point I am getting at here is, how well do you know your friends? Are they willing to reach out to you when you don't log in? Will they forget about you should you decide to take a break from Second Life?
The friends that I know will go above and beyond, are the ones that I hold dearest to me. Though I love them all...some of you I would take a bullet in the leg or something though.<3
In this game, the one we devote so much time's just my personal thought and experience that, you only ever make a couple REAL friends. Treat them well, cherish them. 

So I had a chance to show off another Petite Mort dress in my creepy lil pic. Though I thought of all kinds of fanciful ways to doll it up, the darker side of me took over and this happened instead...and I was happy with it. With 6 different shades available, I am sure you will love it as much as I do.

Hopefully I will be able to come back around again soon with more pretty thangs! Until then, have a blast, don't forget to enjoy your real life too!

It's Time For Tea!

Ooooh my goodness, all the Alice in Wonderland pics ever! It's a good thing though! I don't know about you but I can never get enough of it. I love to see the many interpretations from both designers and bloggers. We style things differently, photograph it differently and in the end we all agree that 'We're All Mad Here!'.
The Alice In Sexyland Event started yesterday and like I said, the variety of things for you to choose from is vast! From clothes to poses, make-up and manicures and everything in between. Make sure to whip allll the way around it because the landmark will only drop you right in the center but there's a lot more to it!
It seems a lot of us found this super adorbs hair that is currently at The Arcade to be very Alice! I was  flipping through many different styles actually and when this one was plopped on, stayed!
I have a lot to show you from this lil event so stay tuned <3

There's a Threat of Rain

{Taken Here}

I love the weather we're having in my corner of the world. If it stayed like this forever I would be incredibly happy but unfortunately it will not. It gets so humid and nasty and then my irritability just goes right through the roof. I need to have the air conditioning on or wind at my face at all times! Oh and water of course!
The days that are so mixed up, remind me of a confused person. They don't know whether to be happy or sad about something and so they're a bit of both. Sunny and then it suddenly starts to pour down rain..and it brings the cool. Is it bad that on days like this I love to walk barefoot if just for a moment? It's small things like this that we have to enjoy. Maybe we don't have to be happy all the time...that's another thing I have to learn myself. Something I beat myself up for. We don't have to be happy all the time...but when we find something, even if it's something small, even if it's for a moment, grab that right up and enjoy that happiness!
I loved this little look I had going on. I don't get to enjoy it enough but I think you will be seeing more of it in Gia's World! It makes me happy! This adorbs Mexican embroidered top is a super bargain and at The Wash sale, so are my shades! Seriously, with these sales, there is just no reason for 'newb' looks in SL. Once again I will say we're honestly spoiled! Take advantage and look around this place. You will find something!
I shall return soon! <3
