Earlier this week I paid a final visit to the Black Swan sim, before its eventual obliteration in a short while. I had watched this sim as it was being built some time ago, along with a number of others in that cluster. It was a reminder to me that even beautiful things do not last in a virtual environment, especially when dollars are at stake. Thanks to the talent and creativity of a number of builders, we have been blessed with these creations for our enjoyment.

I have selected a dress that thrilled me to see – frothing colours of pounding surf, swirling tidal waters lapping around my feet, delicately enhanced by shell and pearl jewelled belt and drapery.

Oceanna

Three varieties of skirt are included, here you see Grand

Oceanna

Opera gloves are included, with white and teal versions.

Careful inspection of a friend’s dress today (thank you Nika!) reminded me of a store I had not visited for a while, so off I went, traipsing across the grid until I arrived at eLDee, the creative outlet of Lilyana Dryke. Here is what I discovered 🙂

After reading Cajsa’s review of her namesake hair new from Truth, I raced over to Truth Island to get it. Still not *quite* released, I waited a short while. My wait was certainly worthwhile, this hair is just simply gorgeous.

You can also see my earlier post about Gypsy Soul clothing

From the designer: “Hi Everyone! Half off sale going on this week at Gypsy Soul! I have some new items stacking up that I’ll be releasing in the weeks to come but before I do that, I wanted to give you all a chance to pick up my current collection at 50% off. Everything is on sale – including the items I put out earlier this month – don’t miss these fantastic prices.

There’s also a new item today called “Sunrise.” Consider it a sneak peek of what’s to come in the next few weeks…or consider it just me, being anxious to put something new out…and, yes, it’s half off as well.”

So get yourself there!

Over a period in world of almost 3 years, I have seen huge developments in skin design. The work involved in creation is beyond me, and all skin makers have my utmost admiration. I would like to show you some of my very recent acquisitions.

Skin Deep

Tess by Laqroki

Another view of Tess

This skin is delicate and with a lovely natural glow to it, I have wornm it with the hair base to accommodate the Laqroki hair

Skin Deep

Dune by Dutch Touch

Skin Deep

I adore the heavier eyebrows shown here in the new Dune skins. Iki has taken a bold step in producing this skin, in my mind it is a very European skin.
