I’m pretty happy to say that this is my 501st blog post since I started officially ‘blogging’! I started doing mini blogs on flickr in March of 2013 and have 800 and some pictures on it…then in October of 2014 I started my blog! I’ve changed a lot since then! I originally said no way to a mesh body….then fell in love the Maitreya, Lara….but I insisted that a mesh head was absolutely not going to happen! Yea…and then Nelly 2.0 by Genesis Labs came along and I admitted to myself that she’s me! When I started, I didn’t know anything about in world lighting or how to get better quality photographs…but with help from my Sistah, I managed to progress! Back in the beginning I wore a lot of system layers and flexi prim attachments…remember the shirt with eighty pieces to attach to every part of the body! You start with the layer..then the collar and the sleeves, then the trim and the bow , or some such thing! And each piece needing to be adjusted to fit! I sure don’t miss those days! Oh…..and don’t get me started on the system skirts! OMG…..I hated those things! Second Life fashion has really changed and all for the better! I don’t look back at my first posts on flickr much…..I cringe when I see them…but I bet in a year I’ll look back on my post today and think things have really changed! Who knows where this Second Life will take me……in a virtual world anything is possible!
I’m really excited about the newly released Knotted Dress from KRALUS! It comes in six colours and each colour comes in three designs with fitted versions for the big three mesh bodies, Maitreya, Belleza, and SLink. This is the Chocolate, Poetry design and I just love the subtle poetry written across it! They’re on sale on Market Place right now for a very low price, and with three dresses in each pack it’s a steal of a deal!
In this round of Designer Showcase there’s something for everyone! I’m wearing the Brianna Shoes in red from Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes! These cute little wedges are available in four colours, along with two colours of the MaryJane Flat, and two colours of the Leila shoe, a comfy deck shoe! They’re all compatible with the SLink and Maitreya feet.
Also at this round of Designer Showcase is the Shari Set in Gold from Baubles! by Phe! The set includes necklace and earrings and is HUD driven with eight gem tones. It comes in gold, silver, and black and is really quite striking!
I love this absolutely adorable Picnic Basket Purse from Anachron. It comes in six designs with each one one containing a version with an animation and one without! These are available at the current round of The Chapter Four, which runs until September 25!! I’ve used the animated version of the Apple purse with a pose from the Marilyn Series of poses from an lar [poses]! The Marylyn set can be found at The Liaison Collaborative, on until September 30.
You can get a good look at the nails from the Little Fall 3 mini pack of nail appliers from Hello Dave if you zoom in on my flickr page! There’s a whole bunch of new fall solids, all in coordinated mini packs, containing 5 colours! I really love solid nail colours, and I think Hello Dave does them up perfectly!
The Valiant hair from .Shi was a gift at this years Hair Fair!
As always, I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maiterya, the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from Genesis Labs, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.
I love Gates of Melancholy for great photographs! I always seem to set my windlight for a dusty look….I just love this lighting!
