Tired (and a little bit sad)…

Well I’ve returned to England and my feet haven’t touched the ground since I arrived. Thankfully I don’t suffer from jetlag, but with RL keeping me so busy, I am properly shattered and it’s been a real struggle to find the time for SL playtime. Worse still, Sugar Daddy had to stay in California and won’t be joining me for a couple of weeks so there is much sadness, longing telephone calls, and my creativity (which is intrinsically linked to my psyche) is somewhat stumped. Anyway, as I’m a Brit and really rather good at keeping calm and carrying on, I have used my most recent life experiences as inspiration for this post… I hope you like it xxx.

I am extraordinarily fussy when it comes to Second Life skins. I trawl the grid looking for them and thus far, I’ve only found two that I really feel suit Dolly’s face shape… Redgrave and Curio.  This new skin from Curio is Lovely by name and most definitely lovely by nature! It has a wonderful tragic look which you’ll either love or hate. Here it is shown in Petal FREX Light Firehouse 2 and I was lucky enough to receive it as a free group gift. However, you can pick it up at the Curio main store along with a great range of makeup options and skin colour tones. Click here to visit the Curio main store.

My Dolly…

I always find the philosophy behind how people view their avatars fascinating. I often discuss with others how I view Dolly; some agree with my opinions, but many don’t. I recently and inadvertently stepped on a friend’s virtual pinkies and hurt their feelings because I didn’t realise how much they saw their avatar as an extension of themselves. Well, as I always say to Sugar Daddy, I am shallow and see Dolly as just that. I used to adore dressing up and playing with dolls as a little girl (in fact my Mother has never got over the fact that I haven’t given her a grandchild with ‘my obvious maternal tendencies’!). Dolly is my excuse as a grown up to do what I did when I was little, only she is a gazillion times better than any dolly I dressed up and played with as a child; in fact I love ‘My Dolly’… share the love and love your dolly too <3.

second-life-eclecticaI love it when I get a tip-off about a new designer, especially when the work is as great as Eclectica’s!

It’s easy to get yourself a pearl necklace in Second Life, but Eclectica’s jewellery is something entirely different. I love love love detail and this work has it in bucket loads. The textures and styling are simply outstanding and the prices are really reasonable.

Up until recently, Eclectica’s work could only been seen at the main store in a sky box above Sinaburoe which is probably why it hasn’t received much coverage. However, the label now has a concession on the upper floor of Lost Dream’s main store which I am pleased to say is bound to ensure more and well-deserved exposure.

second-life-dressesThis is probably going to sound crazy to those of you who are familiar with Cupcakes, but until I saw ou la la mode’s recent series of ‘<3 Cupcakes’ posts, I didn’t know them as a clothing designer. I greatly admire Elisabeth Villier’s style and, if she loves the label, I knew it must be good. So, I trotted along to the store to take a look and sure enough, their range of clothing is fantastic. Now I ❤ Cupcakes too!

This cute as a button sailor dress is typical of the quality of Cupcake’s work. In the clockwork dolly picture, I’ve combined it with a jacket from eLDee, but wanted to show that it has lovely little sculptie puff sleeves and nice detailing on the bodice and neckline too.
