Ever get that feeling of Deja Vu and you’re not sure why? I picked up this dress for free at an event because hey, free dresses are good (sometimes). I was tickled that it wasn’t fug when I got dressed for SL Blogger work and decided it would be my styling inspiration for the day.
As I stood there doing my hair and deciding on jewelry I had this nagging feeling and I wondered, hadn’t I see this before.
I definitely already owned this dress.
So, there are some things I’ve decided and these are them.
I definitely owned this dress or a dress that is EERILY similar.
This means the person I originally bought this from, and the person who put it out as a gift purchased a template.
The person I originally made this dress might have later released it as a template.
What do I think about these things?
I think I don’t fucking care.
Here’s the thing, free gifts are one of those things that are either amazing or garbage. They’re free so you can’t really complain but none of us need new “freebie” chokers if someone could please take note of that. You wanna drop some sexytimes scripts in one and make it free you might gain kudos from a certain crowd but mostly man, nobody wants that your freebie choker.
Templates don’t burn my butter like they do some people. I’m not mad. Seriously. I’m not too good to wear a template so have at it. If I like it I’m not gonna be salty with you about what you’ve released unless it’s ugly or stupid.
Yes, I’m the one who decides if it’s stupid.
With that being said, I also want to say that some templates are garbage. Please check them out a bit before you drop them out for sale or for free.
With all of THAT being said, I’m actually really delighted with this dress. It’s very cute and sassy. I liked it the first time, I like it this time. Well done both of you who picked out this one or whatever it is that happened.
I didn’t go looking t see where I got it originally. I don’t care. I’m at peace.
Now, I need to finish my house.

It might seem unusual to cart one’s laundry in a leather attache but I’m anything but usual. Dragging about large laundry baskets just didn’t suit me this morning, so I decided it was a minimal but much needed load getting done today. Continue reading →
It cracks me up that Gidge was attracted to the same dress from Ambrosia at the Kurenai event. Not identical, though since she chose pink and I chose green which is kind of automatic for us if you think about it. I love the frilly romanticism that goes so over the top it becomes exactly right. Kind of like camp, if you do it, you can’t do just a little.
I have no explanation for why there are baby seals on my platform. They are far above any source of water but they appeared, they were cute, I let them stay, and so here they are. They were made my MishMash, can be found at Collabor88, and they are too cute to care if they have no rationale for being here. Continue reading →
“Are the days of winter sunshine just as sad for you, too? When it is misty, in the evenings, and I am out walking by myself, it seems to me that the rain is falling through my heart and causing it to crumble into ruins.”
Collabor88’s theme for its August Birthday celebration is Plastic Fantastic. In my first life, I would not be caught dead wearing plastic, but this is not first life. Here I don’t have to worry about whether fabrics breathe and my avatar does not sweat, so there are no fetid swamps of trapped and suffocating skin. Instead, we have the bright, shiny flash of plastic. I like the dress from Baiastice that takes advantage of plastics best qualities to give us that flirty hem and gleaming sheen. Continue reading →
