Ever meet someone in SL and feel they were you psychic twin or soul sister or something? I have had that happen a few times (Raven, Callie, KK, Chatty, Lanna, Eshi, Delora) but recently it has happened again—that magic of friendship. (And isn’t that what SL is about, deep down? Making friends.) I met my latest “soul sister” through a series of unfortunate events which led us to talking and then laughing and then just liking each other.
I am taking it casual because with your sisters, you can be casual—you can take it easy and be yourself. You can show up in a casual tank top (this from Dick Wiesel), put on your cords (made by Janie Marlowe) and slip on some cute deck shoes (such cute ones from Renee Harvy) and run over and hang out, sip some wine, and chat and commiserate and laugh.
My jewelry is from Maeve Mortlock, who just knows what girls like me like. I love how she has handcrafted the pieces, making them LOOK handmade with eclectic findings and beads and a collage of textures. She is offering this set at the 2010 Jewelry Fair, and I highly encourage you to visit her there or at her store because each piece is a very reasonable 59L. She has branched out beyond earrings, blessedly, and this set even includes a cute purse with sunglasses.
Finally, my hair.. my luxurious curly locks that look remarkably like my real life hair. This beautiful head of hair comes courtesy of my aforementioned soul sister, Queue Marlowe. (Am I allowed to speak so enthusiastically about a friend so soon? Is it creepy?) Queue started working on this hair, sent it to me saying she was naming it “Harper” (which made me nearly dance around the room). I sent a RL photo of my RL hair late one night, taken right then and there, and she had to agree it looked very similar. It was kismet. Queue “got” something about me right off and channeled it into this hair. It shows her amazing curly textures, her skill with shaping hair in SL, and her terrific aesthetic. Thank you, Queue.
This is for all of you:
