Marking Time

Don’t Touch Your Face, Em!

I haven’t posted in quite a while. Last fall, I made a long distance move, lived in an apartment for a while, then went house hunting. After that, it was remodel, decorate and move again! Then I spent time enjoying my new city followed by some minor health issues.

Ok enough excuses. Thanks to COVID-19 and staying at home, I’m BAAACKK!!

I’m always reminding myself not to touch my face…and to wash my hands. I found this shirt a few weeks ago. It is part of a set put out by American Bazaar as a group gift.

Ballet Magic

Today Mellwynn showed me one of her favorite places, a ballet studio. After we did some dancing, I went back home to do more unpacking. I came across this gown by Siss Boom and got sidetracked–of course! The skirt swirls beautifully while dancing.

BTW–the colors in the background were all done with in-world lighting with just hint of pink overlay in Photoshop. I don’t think I could repeat the accidental magic.

Another Chance

Sylvi of b[ELLE] sent me another version of her bellbottom/top outfit and I thought “Whew! I can get a second chance at doing a promo shot!”. Reminder to self– never ever try to do a photo and post when I’m tired, short on time or hungry. That day I was all three!

Notice the flowers on the pants–they almost shimmer in the light. Gorgeous!

Yesterday’s Dress

The dress I wore yesterday to the real estate office is so attractive, I wanted to feature it. The fabric feels oh-so soft against my skin. The lace trim on the deep neckline and hem are just the right touch of femininity. The belt, shown here in brown, has a small color change HUD. Not too short or revealing, the dress is perfect for the office or a dinner date.

The dress is available at Decoy and comes in 16 colors. 200L each or 1200L for the fatpack.

I got this dress with a gift card from Decoy as a reward for filling out a survey.

Gothic Green

My friend Sylvi has a new GORGEOUS goth style gown in her store. It comes with a 6 option base color HUD. The gown is covered in delicate black lace with exquisite edging on the hem. I just had to show it off in my favorite color–Emerald!

It Had to be Moonlight

I shopped until I dropped from L A G at the SL 16B event in Second Life. Of course, I had to pick up all of the marvelous group gifts. It was like Christmas in June! I have yet to open all of them — maybe I will by SL 17B!

I did pause at a few of my favorite designers’ shops to make some heavily discounted purchases. (There are some amazing deals at SL 16B.) I decided that the best way to show off this gorgeous hair and makeup is with a little bit of moonlight.
