-Fame by David Bowie

Sometimes a girl just needs to feel a bit high fashion.

When I saw this dress by AtaMe at the Halloween Shop & Hop, I just knew I had to get it and wear it in a photo.  The lines have such *movement* that it was begging to be photographed!  Oh did I mention that it is one of the absolutely free gifts that you can get at Shop and Hop?  No group required!  I seriously fell in love with this entire look!  It comes with a HUD allowing you to change metals and colors on the dress.  It fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy

For some reason too this dress made the song “Fame” pop into my head.  Originally by David Bowie, but I love the more upbeat version done by Duran Duran.  My Mom used to *love* David Bowie (yeah she was cool!), so she might argue with me on that point.  Gosh I miss her. (by the way, not to be confused with the Irene Cara song Fame that I sang in a show when I was a teenager, that’s a whole ‘nother song!)

But I digress.  This photo makes me wish I had a fancy ultra modern house and some fancy couches I could hang this photo up on the wall over.  I do have a cute sl house, but it has very little wall space and while it is rather modern-ish, it is also very cabin-ish, so not the right look for my photo.  If I hadn’t just got this house recently I might go hunting for one to match the picture because well, as Aline also knows, one can never have enough houses!  Nor reasons to get houses.  😉

I better stop thinking before I go looking at houses.  But it might be too late to stop that part!

Fame, Fame, Fame, Fame, Fame……
What’s your name?

Stardust

Prudence Stardust Hello Fab Free! So not only does this post contain some great finds, it’s also my little Fab Free virtual tribute to the indescribable David Bowie. For a fan such as me, it’s hard to imagine that his time with us is truly over. Another person wrote that they were not sad, but grateful for his time here. I feel much the same way, grateful that I lived when he lived and had the opportunity to see and hear the way he changed the world forever.

Mr. Bowie heavy on my mind, how could I not also think of his iconic persona, Ziggy Stardust. I put together this uber cute outfit with Ziggy Stardust as my inspiration. The possibilities are infinite when trying to put together an outfit, from the flaming red hair and the often theatrical makeup he often wore. I felt this jumper from Stix was well suited to the task. These playful rompers are available at the current round of Oh My Gacha for just 50 lindens per play. In a lot of ways they do remind me of the bodysuits and jumpsuits Ziggy Stardust was known to wear. Each color of these fun rompers includes a system layer, a TMP applier, and an Omega applier.

I have to say I spent quite a bit of time hunting down the perfect something to add to this outfit, the romper from Stix alone just was not enough for me. I found that something in this Blazer from Luas. This mesh blazer has those very structured shoulders that make me think of 1980s divas and of course, David Bowie in his Ziggy style. This blazer from Luas is available on the Marketplace for just 60 lindens per color.

So last but not least, the one piece that makes the look truly a tribute to the late great Bowie, the zig-zag lightening bolt face paint. This really could be no one else. The makeup is FREE on the Marketplace from a shop called Avanti. I was thrilled to find it, and even more so when I tried the applier. This FREE Marketplace gift from Avanti includes a system tattoo layer and an Omega applier.

Really and truly I hope you enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed putting it together!
