“Too many people miss the silver lining because they’re expecting gold.” ~ Maurice Setter
It bears repeating that SL definitely has its problems, but there are many wonderful things about it. I would say now my biggest gripe about it is everyone else griping. I am tired of the complaints. Considering how the larger world is having problems, the death of Avatars United or a few crashes seems really not a big deal. For example, I log into SL and see this beautiful dress from Nicky Ree and the day is made more lovely all of a sudden.
Nicky exercises all her best skills with this dress. For example, she makes a gorgeous, translucent system piece on top with a lovely flower motif to cover the critical parts. She echoes those flowers in the system skirt (showing also her skill in lining up two pieces like this—no small task). The system pieces, incidentally, have razor sharp edges—no ghosting, no pixelation. Then she paints it with a glistening silver texture, translucent and shimmering all at once. And the dress has her characteristic silhouette—sleek and elegant.
My hair is up in a pretty hairstyle from Britnee Hadlee, who has been on the grid for quite a while, making gorgeous hairstyles of all kinds for ladies. Skin is Tuli Asterias’ newest offering for The Dressing Room. Once again Tuli gives us a pink eyeshadow, this time echoed in glossy pink lips. And instead of prim lashes, I opted for monica Outlander’s tattoo layer lashes. Finally, a pretty necklace from Hibiscus Flossberg from her new gacha machine. Go pump some lindens in—some pretty things to be gotten.
Sail on, Silver girl,
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
