“If you Got it, Haunt it!” Event
Through October 31st
There’s still time! Get it!
“Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,’ I said, `art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore –
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!’
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'”
-Edgar Allan Poe, The Raven

Ever have one of those days that feels like it’s going to be a rough one the moment you wake up? The phone is going crazy, everyone wants your attention, it’s high gravity, and all before your first cup of coffee. But as the day progresses, practically in no time, everything turns around and that blah! day becomes one of the best days in a long time. That’s my day today. What felt like a yuck, crawl back under the blankets, day has become quite wonderful indeed. I hope you all are having a wonderful hump day.
LeeZu has been working her little fingers to the bone for all of us and has knocked out some flipping amazing mesh pieces for you to enjoy recently. So let’s get this show on the road and give you a glimpse of what’s in store for your next visit. The newest release, Ginger, has a vintage feel with its lovely floral pattern and curve hugging shape. And you know me, if a dress has vintage appeal, it’s right up my alley. I chose to pair the magnificent Greta Flower Hat by Elysium with Ginger, and if you ask me, the two compliment each other very well.
Recently, LeeZu released Metropolis, a super sexy, form fitting dress with racy straps across the shoulders and enough cleavage to make the kiddies drool. I love this dress as you can keep it simple and wear it as is for one of those ‘come hither’ dates or out on the town with friends. (It looks amazing on the dance floor too) OR You can dress it up for a social luncheon by simply adding a jacket. I’ve chosen to pair this wonderful dress with the Victoria Blouse for this photo.
The table is all set and looking grand for dinner tonight…now to decide who’s take out to buy and attempt to pull off as home spun goodness.
Well…we were supposed to meet for coffee, but since no one showed up, I’ll just stand here looking pretty!
Thank you for taking the time to have a peek at Sazzy’s Threads. I hope you all have a wonderful evening!

If you’ve followed the ‘We ❤ Roleplay‘ events, Jalilah Jewell, designer and owner of .:GSpot:. has astonished you with her great designs and attention to even the tiniest of detail. But just in case you haven’t encountered Jalilah‘s work, allow me to introduce you. I first met Jali in 2007 and have always been a big fan of her designs. Over the years, she’s created tons of amazingly imaginative outfits for the roleplay community, and her most recent work is no exception. She’s fine tuned her skills and continues to create some of the hottest mesh clothing and accessories on the grid.
Enchanted by .:GSpot:. Featuring the Raven-Nell Crown and Collar, Azuria’s Armor, Fashion Cuffs, and Maris Headdress
Beginning November 1st, Enchantment, a new event focusing on Fairy Tales will hit the grid and Jalilah has designed a most beautiful crown and matching collar for the event. The Raven-Nell Crown and Collar will be available exclusively at Enchantment in black, gold, and cream. You’ll want to keep an eye out for postings about this event. It’s a must see, for sure. Feel free to join the group ‘Enchantment Update Group‘ in world to gain early access.

This series will be available in a Gacha set out at the event, with the chance to “win” the headdress or necklace in black, silver, gold, gold red, rust creme, metallic, blue, blue silver, red black, rust, and violet.

Too safe. Too boring. Too ordinary. Too this. Too that. As a model in SL, I’m sure you’ve heard several renditions of the same thing at some point in your “career” at least once. Think outside of the box. Get out of your head. Trust your gut. Follow your instincts. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve heard those very comments. But when does thinking outside of the box become a walking disaster? There’s a fine line between exquisite creativity and hot mess. We tear apart whatever modifiable piece of clothing we can, mix and match. If we could use super glue or a hot glue gun in SL I’m sure we’d do that too.
It doesn’t stop with the creativity of your styling, it extends to posing. I’m a big fan of huge dramatic poses with an evening gown. But there are some gowns … well you just can’t pull that off properly. We’re taught that how we style, how we pose isn’t supposed to be about us, but to show the clothing in its best light. To me, that’s a no brainer. So when I hear “too safe” when going too far outside of the box would take away from the styling, I tend to just shake my head.
Look of the day with LeeZu
So I’m curious, what’s your take on it? Are you really playing it safe when you think more about the appearance of your styling, showing the designer and their clothing in the best light possible? Or are you bang on and the nay sayers are just having a bad day? Where do you draw your line? Really, I’d like to hear from you on this one.
I hope you all are having a wonderful week! Thank you for taking a gander at my blog!

As many of you know, I’m a lover of vintage fashion and couture, especially from the 30’s and 40’s. There was something special about that era that I often believe is missing from most current fashion and trends. Simplicity, sophistication, I could go on and on about this topic for hours, but I won’t. We’ll save that for another day. There have been a few designers in SL whom have been able to capture the look and feel of that era, one of them being Miss Mami Jewell, designer and owner of AZUL.
AZUL Anita in Topaz
Mami recently released Anita, a sleek and sophisticated gown which is available in 10 delicious colors. Every time I look at one of Mami‘s gowns, I can’t help but smile but as I slipped into Anita, my mind drifted to old theaters with thick, plush, red velvet seats, lush carpets, and crystal chandeliers. If you haven’t visited AZUL lately, take time out and do so, you won’t be disappointed.

Do you have a friend, someone close to you whom is so much like you that it’s almost scary sometimes? I think everyone has at least one person they have that sort of connection with. I know that I sure do. You listen to them, as friends do, allow them to rant and vent and comfort them when needed, support them always, but as you listen to them you can’t help but think to yourself “Wow, I know -exactly- how they feel!”. Of course, saying that to them at that precise moment isn’t what they need or want to hear. They’re nervous, anxious, afraid, uncomfortable, insecure, or any other multiple feelings, and it’s our time to listen, lend support, and offer words of reassurance. And often times what you give to that person comes back to you 10 fold. It’s friendship. Give and take in its truest, most pure form. But be careful the advice you give, because sometimes, that too, comes back to you 10 fold, and from the same person. I know.
Why is it that supporting our friends is easier than heeding our own advice? I’ve asked myself this question numerous times over the past few weeks. You see, I have one of the above mentioned friends, and I simply adore her. But recently my own words of wisdom came back to bite me in the butt. It’s strange, to me at least, how in our real lives we can be strong, secure individuals without a care or concern about what others think or feel. We aren’t afraid to step out of the comfort zone and (forgive the pun) be all that we can be! We’re executives, writers, chefs, engineers, designers, etc. But for some of us, all of that disappears once we enter the virtual world of Second Life. It’s sad, but it’s often times true. I see it around me quite a lot, and even within myself. So what do we do about it? Hopefully you have a friend like I do (love you Desi!), who will give you that extra nudge and push when you need it and remind you of all the sage advice and words of wisdom that you’ve bestowed upon them. I mean, what better way to push yourself that little bit more than to be reminded of what you have said in the past.
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you have a great day!

I don’t know about you, but I love this time of year and the way a new life is breathed into us after a stifling summer. The days are warm enough to enjoy the sunshine without breaking a sweat, and the nights are filled with just a hint of chill in the air. And where I live, after just a few short hours of driving, you can see the trees in all of their brilliant autumn colors dotting the sky almost like filigree against the blue backdrop. It’s just beautiful to me, this time of year. And so refreshing.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Take a break from everything and enjoy the treasures of fall.
