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.

Borrowed from the Boys…

It looks as if the androgynous dressing trend is set to continue well into 2009. For many designers at New York Fashion Week this year, it was all about exaggerated jackets paired with slouchy trousers and was certainly a case of those ‘Who do girls like they’re boys‘. Well in truth, Dolly is far too much a girly girl to pull off the gender neutral look in a big way, but I wanted to demonstrate in this post how it’s possible to embrace the trend by introducing elements of it into our virtual wardrobes. A big thank you to my dear friend and brilliant RL and SL architect, Lake Impfondo, for allowing me to shoot the photos for this piece at his new and jaw-dropping testosterone-loaded bachelor pad.

Bliensen + Maitai does it again with this fabulous little tie. This is the ladies’ version but there are mens’ styles available too.

The detailing on the pin is really beautiful and it’s scripted so you can choose from gold or silver options to coordinate with your outfit. Not only that, but the tie comes in 3 wear options… round the neck, under the collar and knot only; 2 lengths… short and long; and in 7 colours!

As with everything Plurabelle Laszlo does for the Bliensen + Maitai label, these are quirky with a capital ‘Q’. All her work is just that little bit different and I love it! Click here to visit the main store.

second-life-woesecond-life-jeansWhen Dick Wiesel, designer of the WoE label, dropped these jeans on me, I told him they were the best thing since sliced bread and I meant it! You’ll know how amazing his jeans’ textures are if you’ve ever owned a pair, but this boyfriend cut for girls is one I’ve never seen in Second Life before. They are incredibly cute and as with all Dick’s jeans, I challenge you to find any other pair that will make your avi’s toosh look better!

As well as jeans, Dick makes a great range of casual clothing. Click here to visit WoE’s main store.

If you try wearing some of the items featured today together in their default attachment positions, it won’t be possible 😦 One item will replace another as some are set to attach in the same place on your avatar. To overcome this problem, right click the item in your inventory, select ‘Attach To >’, and choose an alternative ‘free’ attachment point. You’ll have to edit the item’s position to fit after doing this so it’s essential to make a copy first!  This is a trial and error process as some points work better than others for certain prim items.
