Far Too Long

It has been a while and I want to apologise for not blogging sooner. Sometimes health issues – injury, illness – get in the way, and what I thought was going to be a short break turned into something much longer than I hoped. To those of you who read my blog, thank you for peeking back in. For the marvelous designers and events I am blessed to blog for I thank you for your patience. I will do my very best to create posts that make you proud.

I have three posts ready to go, but since I have been sitting way longer than I should already, I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Please check the credits for the lovely things I am so proud to show you. Some of these are for events that end relatively soon, so please pay special attention to those deadlines.

And with that, I bring to an end my first post in much too long.

Armed Only With A Killer Pair Of Heels

It is a common fear for women (and some men) to find themselves alone in a parking garage, especially after dark. And when an eerie glow emanates from the distance, you can feel your heart rate increase even more. It’s not the kind of thrill I enjoy.

Finding a great dress and an awesome pair of shoes, however, is right up my alley. The dress from Salt & Pepper from the April edition of BishBox is just fabulous. With a short, flirty skirt and a wide, wide, studded belt, it is simply divine. And nobody does heels with socks better than Darling Monday of fri.day. This particular pair is a Maitreya exclusive from Kustom9 and comes in several lovely shades.

I guess when venturing into the unknown you could do worse than being armed only with a killer pair of heels.

Behind Every Great Woman…

The April round of BishBox is real corker! The “Grunge Queen” box is packed full of great fashion, makeup and accessories. The Kat T-Shirt Dress from ChicModa comes with a texture-change HUD to give you loads of options, including solids, patterns and designs. The Stefanie hair from [NANI] with its classic pageboy style also includes optional hat, giving it great versatility.

I love this smoky eye makeup from .Identity. Body Shop and the septum ring from Suicide Gurls is tasteful and includes three colour options, also via HUD. Check out the closeup to see the detail on these.

If you missed seeing the Tranquility setting at Frayed Sanity I showed a few days ago (The White Greenhouse), I’m sorry, but you’re too late. In her usual style, CrankyGit has closed the sim temporarily to completely redo it. She hopes to reopen later this week, so I’ll try to keep you posted when it has reopened to the public. But before she whisked away the last vestiges of the beach, I managed to grab this shot. It gives truth to the old saying, “Behind every great woman is a dirty, broken mannequin.”

Or something like that 😉
