I was thrilled to learn that he has a new sim installation called The Returning. This is one on of the Linden Endowment for the Arts sims. Prepare to be amazed as you look at the pictures from the Flickr group for the sim. I must thank Ryker Beck for sharing a picture of the sim on her plurk – or I might not have known about it.
Now the dark begins to rise

I went to Venice last night and discovered there even more to the City if you walk behind the bridge. How is it that I have been there multiple times and not noticed anything past the tip of my nose? I was probably fixated on how cute my nose looked and could not see past. I wore a gorgeous dress that I popped on earlier when I went to the InMutio extravaganza. Do you always wear clothing by the creator whose show you are going to attend? I sometimes think about it, but generally don’t. I generally focus on lowering my rendering cost so that I don’t spend so much energy on me that I don’t have any left for the models. With the fabulous backdrop necklace that comes with this sexy little dress from Baiastice, it’s not a low prim dress, but I just took it off and left it at home for the show.
Besides, doesn’t this dress just sizzle. It’s one of Sissy Pessoa’s Christmas Collection and I cannot wait to see the rest of the collection. I haven’t had a chance to look yet what with drooling all over the floor at the show yesterday and working on adding new blogs to Blogging Second Life and trying on white stuff for tonight’s White Ball and generally dawdling and frittering. If you need lessons in dawdling and frittering your time, I’m your girl.
Avenue’s Couture of Hope fashion extravaganza for Relay for Life opens today at noon SLT. The 40 participating designers were asked to create a piece that embodies their vision of a “season of hope.” Entre Mares created this stunning piece that immediately brought Emily Dickinson’s beautiful poem to mind. Hope is the thing with feathers...
Callie Cline released a cotton-candy sweet confection called the little glitter dress. Perfect name. It’s little, especially in length and it glitters with all the soft pastels of spring. I adore the dress and thought it was perfect for the softly romantic new Chloe skin from Exile.
Whenever some new designer drops some promotional items on me and asks me to check them out and possibly blog them, I try the clothes on. I am always eager to find something new and to find new stores, so I enjoy getting these sorts of requests. Jag Voom of Page 3 dropped a few dresses on me the other day, including this delightful print sun dress. What really set this encounter apart, though was the response to a small criticism. Like more and more designers, Jag had made the prim pieces no mod. Thanks to differences in viewers, the prim pieces were a darker tint than the system pieces and I wanted to mod the prims so I could change that. I also wanted to move just one prim piece in the ruffle. I took a snapshot and sent it back, saying I would love to blog the dress, but only if the pieces were no mod to accomodate viewer and shape differences. The next time I logged in there was a lovely IM acknowledging the critique and sending a new, modifiable dress. That kind of responsiveness to the people will go far to make Page 3 a success – and make it easier for fashionistas of all shapes and viewers enjoy the clothing.
Every once in a while I come across a store and love so much of it, I have a virtual spending spree. That happened yesterday when I went to Dany French touch peut etre and bought several outfits – that ranged from 1 to 150L in price, so a spree that did not break my bank. Surprisingly, a while later I got an IM from the creator thanking me for shopping and gifting me with this lovely dress. She said nothing about blogging, just a thanks for shopping – but I will mark it as promotional just in case. I had to check it out immediately and just loved it. The store is in 2nd place in the creator levye Shippe’s picks and you should go there even if you’re not in the mood to shop because she has made such a beautiful place. Be sure to explore the grounds – they are lovely.
Gidge blogged the Paper Heart dress the other day and yet I could not resist its stripey goodness, so I thought I would see what other configuration I could wear it in and the very first thing I tried is another recent A-Bomb release, the pants from No More Words. Stripey heaven! A belt, some wine and thou and I was ready to go.
Sometimes the best outfits happen by accident. I was trying on some clothes the other night, getting ready to go dancing and had just put on a beautiful goth lolita dress from Blue Blood, but I really wanted something more clubby – so I right clicked on the folder for this black and white mini from bdreams. When it rezzed, I still had the corset and stockings from the Blue Blood outfit remaining and I thought it looked hotter than hot. I added some gloves and red tights under the Blue Blood stocking and sure enough, when I dropped by the Skin Fair, someone said “Rawr!” hence the title.
Oh, the Designer Showcase Network dropped another stunning dress on me. This lovely Hothouse Flower from Ingenue showed up in my inbox and reminds me how much I love Ingenue’s lovely vintage clothing. This dress, however, seems to indicate some new, more contemporary, styles are coming out as well. The sculptie bodice is a delight and after increasing it just a bit to fit the bust, it was perfect. I also have to give her props for attaching the bodice to the right pec, leaving the spine and chest free for jewelry.
