Black and White and Read All Over…

For those residing in Britain, this will mean something to you: MP, expenses, cleaning a moat, a jar of pickle, and a bottle of a Laphroaig Malt Whiskey. For those that don’t live in Blighty and think I have totally lost the plot, this week we have witnessed the UK media in possibly it’s most frenzied state yet following revelations that some British politicians may have been supplementing their incomes with dubious expense claims (since qualified by them as ‘accounting errors’). Whether you agree with the arguments put forward or not, the carte blanche coverage of the issues and attacks on those involved can seem a little extreme and is typical of the British media’s handling of topical events. Of course, this has nothing to do with fashion, but as my blog often seem influenced by RL and I feel as if I’m overloaded with political sleeze this week, this post seems appropriate.

  1. I still think you’re brilliant πŸ™‚ I love the classic black and white with pops of red accessories — the way you formated it using newspaper layouts is a smart way to present it. Love the first look! πŸ™‚


    • dollyewing

      Hey anya! Thanks so much for your lovely comments. Another experimental idea … hehe! Glad you liked it πŸ™‚

  2. Samantha

    Imaginative, creative and fun! I always look froward to your reviews and your photos. πŸ™‚

    • dollyewing

      Thanks very much Samantha for taking the time to comment. I’m glad that you like the blog and look forward to my postings. Thanks for your support :).

  3. Reports from the media!”My Second Life the Musical” star Dolly Ewing wins multiple Oscars for best actress in leading role! /Chance Cool

    • dollyewing

      Thank you and I love you all. I have so many people to thank, but quite frankly I am far too important and don’t have the time spare to do it :P.

      Seriously though, glad you noticed my little homage to you :D. All the names in the post are anagrams. If you can guess who they are, I will give you a prize* – I will buy you any item of your choice from the GNUbie store.

    When I saw the first picture in IheartSL I knew it must be you and I was right πŸ™‚ Brilliant idea, Dolly, and although the fashion items are perfectly presented I can’t stop thinking instead about…. why did the starlet Dolly E. experience breathing problems? What had that dirty politician done to her???

    • dollyewing

      Ah well you see, not only is Longwily a dirty scoundral, but he is also cheap. The champagne he gave Dolly was not Bolly darling and contained additives which caused an allergic reaction. Of course, because Dolly is posh, she knew that the the champagne was cheap, but she is also a lady and didn’t want to offend by refusing.

      Haha… this story could run and run… thanks for your comments QiQi… so glad you’ve participated in the fun :D.

    I love how you did these photos! And what a great idea to show the items individually also. You’ve made me realize I can’t live without those tango sandals. πŸ˜›

    • dollyewing

      Oh totally fabulous aren’t they … as soon as I saw them I had my grabby little virtual hands all over them. In case you didn’t get them yet, they have amazing textures and are beautifully made. I also like the fact that they have a lowish heel which isn’t something you see that often in SL – often shoes are high heel or flat I find. I think they would be perfect for a night out at a jazz club or similar. Glad you like the individual close ups of the items – it was a challenge to present them in a way that would complement the style of the post. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Love your name by the way … Plum … lush :D.

  6. My, this is top notch! What work you put into all of this, it is humbling. You never cease to amaze. ^_^

  7. dollyewing

    Thank you so much Lili. I am totally inspired by your work all the time, so the feeling is very much mutual :D.

  8. Amazing as always Dolly!!! A true artiste :))))

    • dollyewing

      Awww thanks so much Gracie. Not a true artiste like you, but thanks so much for a wonderful compliment xxx.
