well its been a while…

Where should I begin? The last 18 months have been ‘eventful’. Since my last full post (September 2009), in addition to many other big life changes, Sugar Daddy and I got married and we decided to make our full-time home in California. After 13 months of going through the immigration process which included what seemed like a rain forest of paperwork, I got approved for my Green Card on Wednesday … yah! Leaving England has been a major upheaval and without boring you with the detail, its meant that there’s been no time for SL at all, hence no blogging or completion of any of the other projects I had in mind. Now my RL is settled and happy, it seems I have some free-time on my hands again. I’ve been brushing up on some old skills and learning some news ones and that has led me back to my second love, Second Life. I’m not sure what I’ll be doing in my next second life, but whilst I’m making my mind up, I really wanted to post some shots I completed before I left; not least because some of the items featured were so very generously donated by designers who I would like to thank and credit. These shots (which I’ll post gradually over the next couple of weeks) were intended for a magazine which I never had the chance to complete. It’s nice to be back – Dolly xxx.

Acceptable in the Eighties…

There is a rule in fashion which dictates that if you remember wearing a trend when it was first in fashion, you shouldn’t be wearing it next time around. Well I don’t mind admitting that I’m a child of the eighties and I do remember wearing the current fashions when they weren’t retro. I also won’t hold back in confessing that I’m not one for following rules in RL or SL and revel in being a fashion rebel.  One of the wonderful things about SL is that it gives us the opportunity to experiment with fashion, so if you like the style why not check out some of the SL Fashion Designers that are championing the return of the eighties. These include Fab.Pony, Emery, Maitreya, MG Fashion and Mirai Style plus Pretties by JB who has released today the pieces I’ve featured in this post.
