Purple Monkey Dishwasher


Struggling to come up with a name for this 2451st post was keeping me from getting this done, but I remembered a few months back that someone had asked for blog post title suggestions. AS you can see, such suggestions need not make sense. This one came from Darkley Aeon, the Guerilla Avatar. I guess if I had a purple monkey, I would train him to do the dishes. Doing dishes is one of my least favorite tasks, mainly because I am one of those people, you know the ones that get water down the front of the shirt and on the floor while washing a plate, a cup and a spoon. I can splash my face and get soap in my eye when doing a sinkful of dishes which is why I tend to wash dishes 6 times a day – everytime I dirty a dish. So, if you have a purple monkey in need of a home, send him my way. I am sure he could wash dishes better than me. But could he style this outfit? I don’t think so. I think any monkey that allowed himself to be purple-ized would just make a hash out of styling anything but rainbows and butterflies.

I went over to Milvus to investigate ater reading about it in the Destination Guide. It looks amazing and I will definitely go back for more picture taking soon. It was near the top of the list in the Destination Guide so I was not the only one checking it out. It was quite busy – so I found a quiet corner for my snaps and stored the bookmark with a promise to go back soon.

Okay, down to business. I saw this gorgeous blouse at Whippet & Buck Shoe Fair booth and had to have it. When it was still hanging on the wall at the store, I knew i was going to try it with Zaara’s new skirt. Of course, this meant I had to go to Zaara’s and pick one up! I chose the peach color skirt because I remembered the leggings Zaara made quite a while ago and thought they would look perfect – and they did. I added Arcadas shoes from Shiny Things.


I added this amazing new jewelry from Kungler’s called Aroeira. I love how they always get their inspiration from plants. The hair is Miriel’s Gibson. It’s a sad thing that she closed and this is no longer available. I sometimes think I should discard it so I am not tempted to wear it, but then I think how much I love it and hope that she comes back. Sadly, the hat has the same story. It’s from Elegance Hats – my favorite milliner in Second Life. She closed her store last year and I keep checking her profile to see if she’s back, but so far no luck. This is actually her white Cecile hat, but I tinted it. I tint her hats often to get the shades I want. I have checked out other milliners and many are quite good, but there’s only one Elegance Hats.

The makeup is PXL Creation’s Gaia. I really love the flexibility of starting with a few base skins and then mixing and matching lip and eye shadow tattoo layers. It’s definitely the best model for going forward in skins – reducing the burder of skin addiction on our mile-high and tipping over inventories.
