My Fair Lady

I love the classics. Whether it is literature, fashion or personalities I am drawn to simple elegance. Don’t call my look a cliche; I prefer enduring style.

When it comes to my skin in Second Life, I am very particular. I often see skins that I love in the promo photos or even on other avatars, but I will never, ever buy a skin without demoing it first. Clothing and accessories define your style; your skin defines who you are. So it was a big step for me to subscribe to Powder Pack for the first time. I have been checking the event for several months and finally decided to push aside my anxiety of not knowing what I might receive and purchase the October box for LeLutka. And I was pleasantly surprised.

I can’t say that I will wear any of the skins or makeup on a daily basis, but I will be happy to dip into these treasures whenever I feel a need to switch things up. Including body appliers with the head appliers is a huge bonus, and I will definitely give some of the creators’ new releases a try in the future. If I want drama, I’ve got it. If I want exotic, it’s now in my inventory. And even when I want to show off classic beauty, I have all of the tools I will need.

In the inimitable words of Professor Henry Higgins, “But I’m used to hear say, ‘Good morning’ everyday. Her joys, her woes, her highs, her lows. A second nature to me now. Like breathing out and breathing in. I’m very grateful she’s a woman! And so easy to forget. Rather like a habit one can always break! And yet, I’ve grown accustomed to the trace of something in the air. Accustomed to her… face.”

And what a face it is…of My Fair Lady.

Nothing To Wear

It’s a woman’s worst nightmare: having so many choices she simply has nothing to wear.

Only one of these gowns is actually wearable, and it is a stunner. The Aja Gown by Valentina E., available at FaMESHed, will have you prepared for princesshood. The others are mannequins, but I would wear every single one of them. I racked up all of these great decor items from LAGOM at The Gacha Garden.

Thanks to my haul, I find myself with nothing to wear.
