Feeling Sort Of Drowsy
As I was preparing for my post I nostalgically tried on several items from some of my favorite shops that are no longer around. I've been in Second Life 3 1/2 years now, having this fashion blog for 3, and much has changed since the first time I logged in full of wide eye wonder and possibilities. My first goal, of course, was to shop as it was an article on virtual shopping that bought me here in the first place. I remember being pissed and thinking I was somehow cheated of my item when I rezzed that first box on my head.LOL! As the fashion blogs become more and more of who can get it the fastest, snap photos the quickest and get it published immediately, I would like to revisit some of the old favorites of mine along with a few new ones. The Natalie dress from Last Call has always been one of my favorites. I imagined it in a heavy Lycra, which would hang perfect with no wrinkling no matter how much you sat on it. I've used the top from that dress, which has intricate tiny silver sequin detailing around the neck, lightening the mood with Nylon's hand drawn fabric necklace colored to silver and a back draping triple strand pearl necklace that adds a contrasting look from back to front. I've paired it with the paper bag waist white skirt from DeLa that has a contrasting black tie sash. A simple textured silver cuff from The Niven Collection's Wonton jewelry set compliments without being overwhelming. Finally, the Yuja ll shoes from Enkythings in silver/black, along with the lovely side swept, full hair "Is" hair from Magika in blonde A finished the look with polished, yet uncomplicated flair.
