The designs reflect the strong spanish influence
A mix of sale items (last season) and new seasons designs are available.
Spain does not have the bitter cold of many countries, so the designs give the opportunity to dress for warm days and balmy evenings
Many outfits have numerous options included

One of the particular thrills for me in this virtual environment, is the vast array of diversity we see in designers and their creations. Also, we as the consumers of these designs, make our own unique look by assembling various elements to create something different and fitting to our own desires of the day. During my almost 4 years in world, I have had the particular pleasure of meeting very many people – as an avid voice user I have enjoyed many conversations, admired many creations (even if not to my taste) and in the past 8 months or so have had the pleasure of putting together this little blog. I know from the feedback I get that there are many people who enjoy what I photograph, both creators and consumers, and this is a good thing.
So here we have a bargain buy, a dress for $50L from Style Starts Here
Lacy Print dress shown in two of the available colours. This dress can be found just near the TP point, just to the left as you walk in.
My beautiful jewellery is made by Elizabeth Tinsley of Frippery. This set, Waltz of the Snowflakes, is exquisitely detailed and well worthy of your taking a trip to the store. My skin, from the Bella series, is from the amazingly talented Fade Lei of Ugly Duck
I hope we can all enjoy the richness of our virtual environment, and revel in the opportunities we have to see the creativity of others.

Tonight when I logged in, aside from the usual notecards, textures, offlines, I had a DSN sample box to unpack. I was most pleasantly surprised to receive a new release dress from Reale. This dress shown here is a sample, so if you are subscribed to the fashion category of DSN, you will receive it. Believe me, it is well worth while unpacking.
I also took the opportunity to show another recent release from Reale.
Pink and stylish and pretty with uncluttered lines
And moves very well
Perfect for a careful walk across a bridge
or strolling at sunset
This post is especially for Lolita Oleander, who missed my dark hair, so I especially wore it tonight!

This week marks the 3rd anniversary of my entry into this virtual world. I was so busy, the day passed before I realised, so I had a sort of remembrance of the past three years a little belatedly.
I arrived in world when the maximum avatars peaked at 13,000 on the best days, when crashing was a very regular event, when I thought graphics were restricted to about 5 colours because I had such a crappy graphics card, before voice, before the great influx of European people, long before the arrival of people from the Asian countries, and when the maximum frame rate I achieved fluctuated between 2 and 4. I look back and wonder what it was that drove me to keep coming back, as it was actually quite difficult with the computer I had at the time. I’m quite sure I was convinced that I had discovered a great thing, having been a chat junkie for years, I saw this as the next evolutionary step that I needed to take.
Pretty pretty Wisteria dress from Prelude
In my world, spring is on the way 😀 – Sorbet Dress
Perfect for dancing the night away – Ambrosia

And finally, a thank you to all the people I have met during the past 3 years. It is you who brought me back, again and again. Through friendships, disagreements, debates, discussions, creations, artistry, exhuberance and joy, I would not have missed it for the world!
