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.

Neoclassical…

Maitreya’s most recent release, their sculpted top and belt combo, is the latest in a line of brilliant creations Second Life Designers have given us incorporating the use of sculpties to create draped fabrics.  If you’re a follower of SL fashion, you’ll have seen this piece populating all the major blogs and you probably already have it in your virtual wardrobe!  I’ve seen it combined into so many looks by my very talented blogging peers, but when I saw it and the other draped pieces I’ve collected recently, it inspired me to put together this neoclassical post.  I hope that you enjoy my interpretation *smiles*…
