Suivez-moi to London…

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a big lover of London. A surprise I am sure to those not lucky enough to have visited our nation’s capital. The inflated prices, hoards of crowds, and general uneasiness I experience when I go there usually leaves me feeling exhausted and deflated. However, you can’t visit Britain and not visit London, so when Sugar Daddy’s relatives came to stay over the Summer off we trotted to see if the streets are really lined with gold. To my amazement, I actually had a really great time. Unsurprisingly, the streets are not lined with gold, but Dolly certainly is in the outfit I have to show you today!

Dolly’s top 5 suggestions for  things to do in London:

1. Get away from the tourist crowds and eat French at La Sacre Coeur in Islington.

2. Take a flight and enjoy a 360 degree view of the City in London’s top paid for visitor attraction, The London Eye.

3. Learn about England’s bloody past from a Yeoman at The Tower of London and see Henry VIII’s armour whilst your there.

4. Mingle with the rich and the richer at what is claimed to be the World’s most luxurious department store, Harrods.

5. Have a picnic in St James’s Park before strolling up The Mall to Buckingham Palace.

There’s been a bit of a debate around fri.day since it’s much anticipated opening at the beginning of August. Well, like them or not and for what its worth, my opinion is that they are delivering as promised. You’ll find a good range of well made basics here in all layer and colour options (yah!) plus a few crackers including some great waist belts, the beautifully styled military style jacket featured in this post, and some truly lovely hair (also featured). The best news is that they’re holding a sale from now until 10th September and most items are discounted at around the L$50 to L$100 mark.

What has never been in question since launching onto the Second Life fashion design scene, is the universal love shown for !Ohmai. I adore the sunny nature of this little yellow vest and applaud Anya’s skill in textures and the innovative use of the system skirt to produce the peplum. I know of only a few other designers who have done it so well – and I am talking about the uber talented and well-seasoned crew at Tableau here!

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.
