Today is my 5th rezz day. I’m kind of shocked by the fact that I lasted three weeks in SL, let alone five years. But I’m so grateful I did, because I have made some incredible friends during this journey. There’s my BFF Rosa. We’ll be friends 5 years on February 4th, and I can tell her absolutely anything. I know she’ll keep all my secrets safe. There’s my “forever” sister, my fellow “Posh Orphan,” Isley who is like… some freaky extension of myself in all the best ways. All of my awesome Plurk friends, who are always ready to give hugs and support, and who tolerate my crazy posts. And most of all, my incomparable RL husband, with whom I began this journey five years ago. I’ve learned so much about myself through my SL experiences, and though there’s been hurt and heartache, I consider myself fortunate that it’s been primarily a very positive experience.
So, maybe you’ve guess I’m feeling a little nostalgic today, huh? Well, that makes it a perfect time to show off some of the items from January’s edition of Collabor88, which has a theme and color palette that is designed to inspire feelings of nostalgia. My shirt and tie are both from Tres Blah’s offerings for Collabor88. My hair is a recent release from Truth, and I love the long, sleek ponytail. It’s versatile, and would work for more casual looks, as well as more professional, dressier styles. This is something I always love in my fashion pieces. The skirt is from Baiastice for FaMESHed. My shoes are from fri.day for Collabor88… more on those in a moment!
I’m also wearing the pre-release of the new skin Magenta from Glam Affair. This gorgeous skin is in a new tone – Asia – that I just love. This sneak peek at the Magenta skin is available at The Seasons Story. In this picture, you can also see my beautiful earrings from Cae for the next round of Enchantment, which opens on February 1st. My eyes are from IKON’s Promise line, currently available only at FaMESHed. This line is my favorite yet from IKON, and I’m especially loving the brown shades.
I wanted to show off my sassy manicure, courtesy of Flair for the SLink hands. And here’s a better look at my Miranda shoes by fri.day. These are the first fri.day shoes for use with the High SLink feet, and I really, really love them. They are so elegant, and I’ve always been a fan of the look of ankle straps.
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
