Best & Worst Meme: A Tale Of Two Peeps

1 Blah 1211_008

I could easily quote Charles Dickens here, but I’m not going to go the easy route. OK, so I kinda did in the title, but forgive me – Dickens is one of my favourite authors so I couldn’t let it go without mention!

Miss Berry has asked us to share our Bests & Worsts related to Second Life. At first glance, this seemed to be an easy challenge, but while thinking about the questions I realised it’s not that simple. There are so many good – and bad – things about Second Life it is hard to narrow it down. I shall, however, do my best not to make this the worst meme I’ve done!

Here’s what she asked us to do:

Ladies’ Day At The Races

1 LG Alirium SSSS_011

The sun has set on Australia on the day of the Race That Stops The Nation. The Melbourne Cup, Australia’s premier horse race is an event which finds Melbourne (and much of Victoria) taking a holiday for the race and most businesses across the country coming to a standstill while the race is run. It’s a day where ladies turning out in their finery, complete with hats or fascinators, are as much an institution as the race itself.

Today’s race was won by Fiorente, a stallion ridden by a male jockey, but he was trained by Gai Waterhouse – the first Australian woman to train a Melbourne cup winner.

I had joked earlier in the day that I needed to find a hat so I could do a Melbourne Cup post, but I really hadn’t planned on following through. That is, until I received this dress and knew it was perfect for a garden party – or the social event of the Melbourne Cup Spring Carnival. So, hat shopping I went, since a girl can’t show up with her head bared for this party.

The dress is available on Tuesday, November 5 (out now as I post this) in front of the Liv Glam store for only 50L for the SLebrity SLection Street Sale. With three versions in one HUD, you don’t want to miss out.

Not every day is Race Day, and not every day do you have a chance to cross the line with a dazzling frock like this.

One For Two Seasons

1 Slacey's Cuddle Sweater_001

Cuddle up in this snuggly cardigan on an autumn afternoon and you’ll be sexy and cozy all at once. Since it’s spring in Australia, I decided to forego anything underneath (why not show off a pair…um, of seasons’ fashion at once?) With the loose weave, it can work for either one.

1 Slacey's Cuddle Sweater

It has the added bonus of fitting nicely over a pair of mesh leggings without the pants poking out AND not making my bum look like the side of a clapboard house. Who could ask for more?

This sweater will be available on Tuesday only at the SLebrity SLection Street Sale for only 50L.
