Carrie Bradshaw said, “The fact is, sometimes it’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun.” I suppose I should credit Candice Bushnell, but the words are Carrie’s. If only Carrie could go to Shoetopia to find some really special ones.
Thalia Heckroth™ has made minimalism and simplicity her design signature. But just as Doris Janzen Longacre was correct when talking about simple living not being simple, minimalist design is just as deceptively complex. Embellishment is easy, structure is hard. Look at the structure on this gorgeously simple dress. Look at the bodice and the way the sleeves are inset. This is a deceptive form of simplicity that is the hallmark of good design. I decided to go for pink, out of the many color choices this dress comes in. I was tired. Pink wakes me up.
There is so much happening in Second Life right now that it’s sometimes overwhelming. Consider this single post which features a casual outfit at a local coffee shop. But underneath, out of site, there a lot happening. Here are the bullet points.

The New Realism: Slink Dynamic Hands with idle animations and poses
The New Realism: New Facial Expressions for Lelutka Bento Heads
Altair’s dress for Collabor88 is as flirty as it can be. It comes in a range of colors and with a HUD to change the colors of the bow and the ribbon at the babydoll waist and the hem. I chose pink because pink makes things pretty.
I woke up this morning and decided I desperately needed to see new things in my SL so I ran off to LEA to expand my mind and appreciation of beauty. The place I ended up was LEA 16 and you ride a little space ship (or a fancy space ship as you like) through multiple builds which are a play of light, objects and motion. It was truly a perfect was kick start my day.
I am showing off lots of new goodies this morning also so let’s walk through those. My clothes are from that awesome new shop POPPY and I know I’ve mentioned it before. They are OPEN now as of today. You can get to POPPY riding this wild slurl. They are lovely pieces that are out thus far and you’re going to want to check it out. Continue reading →
I picked up the LUXEBOX this month and had to log in before my typist ran off to the RL to check out what was in it. So far my best love is this flawless top from Azuchi which fits perfectly over the pants they released for UBER. It comes in five colors in the box and is a great staple piece for your spring wardrobe.
I haven’t peeked at the rest of the offerings yet because it was telling me I was clicking too fast to get my goodies and ain’t nobody got time to wait like all that. (Okay I know scripts yadda yadda I understand, I just don’t have patience this early).
I’m looking forward to opening the rest in a bit.
Happy Wednesday girls!
