Sometimes when ‘the chips are down’ and you have no one else to rely upon but yourself, the world can seem a scary place. However, I think given the right frame of mind and a good old dose of determination, these moments in life can form into our finest hours.
Having gained some experience in working with graphics, I can imagine that there is great skill in creating metallic and shiny fabric textures in SL. Of course our talented Second Life Designers manage to pull it off beautifully and with stunning effect. Metallic shimmers are definitely a key RL trend this season and I’m pleased to see this reflected in current collections. When all around us seems to be doom and gloom, my advice is to don your sequins, slap on your lippy, and and prepare to dazzle with show stopping effect!

I recently discovered Fab.Pony after my colleague on the Focus Fashion Agency Team, Seinna Fredriksson, wrote about them in her brilliant and weekly post, Confessions of a Shopaholic. Well, as I later commented on Sienna’s post, I went, I saw, and ever since I have been very much in awe! If you’re planning a big night out in SL, don’t even consider putting on your dancing shoes until you’ve seen what Fab.Pony has to offer.

In the second shot, I’ve combined two necklaces; I often do this or combine a necklace with a scarf by attaching one item to the chest and one to the spine. This is possible because prim items move in the same way when attached to the chest or spine. Mixing up your prim items in this way is great for styling and creates a unique look. When attaching item to any other point then the default position, you’ll have to edit the placement afterwards, so make a copy first.
