From Sad to Glad With One Stop at Reale


It took me a couple days to pull this look together – and in the process I got to feeling very mournful for all the stores that have left Second Life® recently. Economic hard times find people cutting back and many of the stores in Second Life have had some rough months.  It’s tough seeing favorite stores and creative designers leave.

Shiny Things

It all began with the shoes. I picked these up at Shoe Fair though they have been available at Shiny Things since May. I loved the style and had a few things in my inventory that would work with them. However, the first three outfits I pulled together out of my inventory were from stores that had closed – Liberte, Vogart and Uncle Wiggley. How sad to see them gone. Not wanting this streak to continue, I decided to go shopping instead. Since I was looking for something floral and contemporary for the boots, I headed to Reale, where I knew that there would be some good prints.


Sure enough – within minutes I found the perfect dress. In fact, the daisies scattered on the skirt are exactly what I was hoping for. The bits of lace edging on the hem, sleeves and bodice are the sort of homespun touches that really suit the style of the shoes.


The jewelry is from Violet Voltaire – chosen because I wanted something that was happy and cheerful. Nothing says happy like Violet Voltaire’s jewelry. The hair is from Truth, a recent release called Trinity, and it’s a delightful casual style with long hair that’s held off the face with braids pulled back to a band.


The skin is the upcoming new release from PXL Creations called (or so I am told) Dafne. This version has very kissable glossy red lips.
