Echos and silence, patience and grace

A little bit more from the stunning new collection available at LaViere with a dash of lots of my other favourite things!  I can't begin to tell you how much I adore this dress, whilst it works perfectly on its own i preferred to pair it with these spiffy leggings made by the fabulous Steffy Ghost. 

Also, I'm loving these skin previews that Ivy Graves has been tossing around for the new line that is due to hit illusory stores eventually.  This particular skin was available at the launch of Collabor88 for a mere $88L (seriously how attractive is that price?).  I believe the skin is still available until the 7th of September but I may be wrong.  I have included a link to the Collabor88 event though for anyone who wishes to check it out.

We built these paper mountains, then sat and watched them burn

LaViere has released a gorgeous new collection and I think Azure Electricteeth has really excelled herself.  I couldn't choose a favourite out of the new releases so I'm pretty sure I go one of just about everything.  Many items feature accents which are tintable which I love as a point of difference.  If you haven't check it out yet, I'd highly recommend it!

Also, Zigana has redone her sim and it is just beautiful, with many many awesome areas to snap some pictures.  Lili Brink has done a post about it here, but seriously step away from Harry Potter Your Story for a half hour or so and go and see it, it's worth the visit.

One of these days

Hi hi, I'm slowing getting back into the swing of this blogging thing.  Trust me when I tell you that you don't wanna know how long it took me to actually get a decent shot out of Second Life.  I'm waaay outta practice.  I'm trying a new picture layout, I've seen a few people do this now and I actually quite like it.  It shows all the detail without redonkulously large pictures slowing down the blog or associated feeds, especially for people on slower connections but we will see, I tend to get bored easily.

Fifty Linden Friday last week was a definite goldmine for the thrifty shopper.  I've been wearing this dress from Tres Blah ever since and, as of about 5 minutes ago, it is still up in Juliette's shop at Lula for $50L so if you haven't got it yet... go go go

Last but not least, I was very humbled last week to have my blog invited to join the Style Academy.  In case you haven't heard of it, it is a somewhat new feed dedicated to high quality style and photography.  It's definitely worth checking out and I'm thrilled to have been invited along for the ride!
