Some of you may have seen our increasingly woeful UK Prime Minister, just before our recent election, saying that the naughtiest thing she had ever done was to run through a field of wheat as a child.  I thought I’d try and recreate that historic scene, using Alirium as the setting and a new pose from Foxcity that seems to fit the bill perfectly.  History relived before your very eyes!

The best things in life are free.  Well, almost free!  I’ve always loved Junbug gowns – though I guess they’re aimed at the role playing market their dresses are just so adorable just as ordinary (or should I say extraordinary!) evening gowns. So for just 200L to join their group (I did say almost free) you can pick up this wonderful group gift which would be fit for any Prince Charming who just happened to be wandering by :). I’ve paired it with a couple more new things. I visited the Kawaii Project for the first time yesterday and picked up this beautiful skin from Glam Affair.  The bottom pic, which I’ve hardly photoshopped at all (honest!) shows how smooth the textures are on it.  Well worth an investment I think. I also paid another visit to the D!va store for this wonderful updo.  Eventually I think I’ll buy the whole store!!

Another day, another Second Life event – I’m learning so much about where the good stuff is from writing these blogs! Today it’s The Fantasy Collective, and despite its name it contains a surprisingly everyday dress from Valentina E., this lovely little ribboned number that I could easily wear as a day dress (well, a very posh day dress!). I also found this new hair from Tableau Vivant there and was again taken aback by the vividness of their reds – the colours really are beautiful.

The main pic is back Alirium, fast becoming my favourite photo location. For the second, Bear has been a bit bolshie recently so we need to have a bit of a heart to heart. You know what bears are like 🙂 I think we sorted it out though and he’s still my bosom buddy!

Paris 1900, Notre Dame http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Paris%201900/40/41/25  (bottom pic)

I said in my last post I’d wear some gowns from my inventory and here they are, one totally gorgeous ball gown and one totally gorgeous evening dress. The ball gown is from Apple May Designs and makes me feel like i’m floating on air. The forest in Alirium seemed the perfect place to pose in it – i feel like a damsel waiting for her knight :).  The slinky red evening dress, a relatively recent release from Maitreya, seemed to have a bit of a fin de siècle air so I came to Paris 1900 in search of inspiration. However, rather than the Moulin Rouge it was Notre Dame that took my attention and instead of a spot of carousing with Toulouse Lautrec I seem to be doing a bit of testifying!!

P.S. I am away for a couple of days, but hopefully I’ll have another blog on the go before the end of the week

I’ve invested in a copy of Photoshop so I hope it doesn’t show too much over the next few posts – let me know if I’m getting too arty-fartsy! I’ve also realised that along with no pics of me in a long dress of any description, I haven’t shown any sort of formal attire so far in this blog. I’ll remedy that now – in the next post I’ll feature some of my favourite evening dresses and here I’ve gone for the working-girl look. I look rather severe – not too much of a dominatrix I hope!

The jacket and skirt are by Valentina E. and are at the latest FaMESHeD event. Nice styling I hope you will agree and such a lovely colour. I’ve topped it with my Crystal hair from Blues and bottomed it with my Grady heels from Ingenue.

L&K Rachel ❤️
