For Donna

This is what happens when one goes on holidays for 2 weeks and is cut off from SL and the internet in general on a cruise ship.  One misses important things!

I do not like editorialising one bit, and if you have noticed recently I gave up any kind of talk on my blog other than Berry’s memes in favour of simple pics.  As an ancient dinosaur of an avatar, I have been through hell and back in SL, it actually makes you worry about humankind in general and in my case force me to keep more to myself and limit certain interactions in-world for the sake of my sanity.  However, there are moments where I get hope about the goodness of the people and our ability to come together when one of us is down.

I just realised next week after catching up on my Plurk, Plus and other Social media that Donna Flora’s designer Squinternet Larnia is ill and battling Cancer.  Over the years, Donna Flora has created some of the most exquisite jewelry.

Christmas Family Day

Christmas is all about family, and as I was considering what to wear from X-mas day luncheon.. well I put together this little simple ensemble.

Christmas Day

However, a little thingie kinda disappointed me in the skirt seam between the pant and undershirt layer. I am not used to this by the creators of Mon Tissu, I hope they notice and “fix” it.

Hmmmm

It won’t stop me from still buying their releases in the future, but now I will have a closer look.

Amendment (26 Dec): I received an IM from Elie Spot (Mon Tissu’s Designer) and she kindly explained that this seam will always be displayed when wearing the pant and shirt/undershirt layer. She advised that the way to avoid this all together was to wear the jacket layer. So here you have it my dears, we learn something new every day.

Thank You Elie for taking the time to explain this little pesky SL glitch, and thank you for the amazing creations and my favorite pair of SL jeans of all times!

Mimma

I think it was yesterday that I saw on flickr from Donna Flora new jewelry releases. The Mimma set caught my eye straight away, as I loved the cute little multicolor flowers.

Just because of that, it should quite easily go with an array of color and textures and could be worn on many different occasions. I just wish we had a HUD to change the lace’s colors.

Belle comme Izabelle

Izabelle is the latest release from LeeZu, a lovely shirt that would go wonderfully with pretty much anything… I have kept it here quite simple with my favorite pair of Gatsby pants from Tableau Vivant.

I am wearing here the version in Silver and each color pack comes with a light and dark version – shown below.  I have to say that I appreciate the fact that LeeZu decided to to place both version in one pack rather than have it all split. For me, it is like having 2 separate tops for the price of one.  A most excellent deal!
