I have to admit that I don’t have a gown in my closet waiting to be taken out and worn somewhere fancy! I’ve never put my hair up in an updo like this either! I don’t have heels this high…….well actually, I don’t have heels higher than my runners! So, in real life I’m not at all dressed up with nowhere to go! But, in Second Life, it’s a different story! I’ve taken the time to get my hair done, I found a gorgeous gown to wear, and I’ve gotten my nails and make up done. But, I still have nowhere to go! You might be asking, “Why would someone with no plans get all dressed up just to sit at home?”. I now ask myself the same question……I’m sure there’s something to do somewhere in Second Life, but I like a quiet evening. I can get my place all decorated for Christmas while enjoying some eggnog and a little bit of festive music! Which is something I can do in heels and a gown! What the heck…..sometimes it’s good to dress up, hold your head high, and think about the comfort of the sweatpants and T-shirt waiting to be put on!
To start off, I’m so excited to welcome Sn@tch to my little family of featured designers! I was introduced to Sn@tch way back when I was a noob! My sister took me around to all the clothing hot spots, where fashion was a reasonable price or even free! The first stop was Fab Free and I couldn’t believe all the wonderful free stuff just sitting there for the taking! Sn@tch was a part of it and I proudly wore that outfit, most of the time, really! So now I’m in a little bit of heaven, getting to review all the new releases and specials from Sn@tch, weekly! One of the new releases this week is the Mari Lace Gown! It’s HUD driven with a whopping 30 colours and it’s compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Ebody mesh bodies. It also comes in a couple standard sizes! It’s sexy personified!
This stunning hair is the Sophia Updo from NSP! It’s on sale right now at Designer Showcase, but there’s only a few more days to get in on the deal! This is the Naturals pack and it’s HUD driven with a huge number of colours to choose from. The pretty little Orchid Attachment is also colour change with seven colour options for the flower and the greenery!
The gorgeous Salt Water Shadow is available at N21 from Veechi! The pack contains twelve options and it’s compatible with the Catwa, Lelutka, and Logo(seen here on Alex) mesh heads, along with the tattoo layer for the classic avatars. Also, for this round of N21, when you make a purchase from Veechi you’ll receive an exclusive three colour pack of liners as a bonus! These will only be available for the month!
I love the subtle design on these nail appliers from Hello Dave! They’re from the November Mystery Box, which will be available until the end of the month. The box contains eight mini palettes of five design options. This is from the Autumn Bouquet.
All of my jewellery is from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery, and all gorgeous! The thing I love about any of the releases from Maxi Gossamer is that they’re so well made and timeless! I can wear an item that was released a few years ago and it looks as good as it did then! So I scroll through my endless Maxi Gossamer folder to select a few items that I love! I’ve chosen the Misha Dark Fairy Choker and the Nova Dream Moon bracelet, earrings, and rings this time around. Who can resist a ring this size?
The Villenti Heels are from a Luxe Box, I’m not sure which round, sorry! They’re from Reign.
Also from a Luxe Box, is the Alaioute Skybox from Scarlet Creative! I’m standing in front of one of the many windows with a lovely snowy scene behind me.
I consist of the Alex mesh head from Logo, wearing the Irina skin in pale tone from itGirls, along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the elegant1 hands and feet from SLink.
I’m using poses from the Daisy pack from Diesel Works!
