Not Shabby At All

1 Not Shabby At All 2 sm

Those of you who know me and my normal style will be shocked to learn that this is not just a set I built for a photo, but my own home. What, you say? That’s right – no retro, shabby chic look this time around, with not a speck of gingham or patchwork to be found. I’ve gone a bit more modern and eclectic, while still comfortable. Even the dog is more angular and sleek instead of fluffy and cute!

I intentionally didn’t allow a peek through the windows; I’m still struggling to let go of my country feel outside 😉

I added a few photos I had on hand to the frames from [ keke ] for Uber…since I could. That’s what they’re for. I’ll be working on shooting photos that fit the new feel of my home, rather than just making photos that I had fit. I plan to change them often; again…that’s what they’re for. They’re versatile and will work in any decor, which I love.

I’m not quite ready to stray too far from a cozy living space, but as an effort to move away from my comfort zone, I don’t think it’s too shabby at all.

Pretty stuff I’m showing off:

Do What You Wanna

1 Do What You Wanna sm

That’s right. If you want to decorate your bedroom in contemporary, shabby chic and Victorian…do it. If you want to wear a revealing top with a sky-high mini skirt and gartered stockings, do it. If you want to shop and style and take pictures and blog…do it. It’s your Second Life. Do what you wanna.

Personally, I chose all of the above.

There is lots of newness in this photo. Check out the credits for what and where.

You know you wanna.

Where’s Dave?

1 Where's Dave

This is Dave’s bed. Those are Dave’s shelves. That’s Dave’s rug. In fact, this is Dave’s room so all of this must be Dave’s stuff. But I have to ask…

Where the hell is Dave???

I guess if I’m stuck waiting for Dave I couldn’t do it in a better place. The bed by Kuro is soft and comfy (despite being built on a platform of cement blocks) and there are a lot of really interesting things to keep my attention. The vast majority comes from 6º Republic. I didn’t think the Industrial theme was my kind of thing, but then I stopped by. Boy, was I wrong! I loved so much that I had to walk around and make a list of all that I wanted and then rank the items so I didn’t go over my budget. Trust me, there is lots more that I couldn’t get, and still more in my inventory that didn’t make it into this photo!

I have to say that Dave has excellent taste, but is just a bit messy. Clothes and shoes on the floor, books scattered about, even candles lit and a cigarette left smouldering in the ashtray. Surely he won’t be gone long?

I also had the time to ponder one burning question:

WHO the hell is Dave?
