What do I even write about today with the news that Britain is waking up to? When you went to bed hearing the news that an explosion had rocked a concert in Manchester and there were fatalities. When you wake up to the news that 22 people, some of them children, have already lost their lives and over 50 injured. Can you even write about Second Life with that kind of backdrop to the situation in real life?
This terrible event happened at a music concert, full of young, happy, people enjoying their favourite pop stars visit to the UK. Music for me, and many others, has always been something that brings people together. It does that in real life just as it does in Second Life. I’m watching the rolling news as I write this and the best of humanity these events bring to the surface is the only silver lining, if there can even be one. People coming out of their homes to provide nourishment and refreshment for the emergency services in attendance, taxi drivers offering lifts to hospital for the walking wounded and members of the public doing the same too. The hashtag #roomsformanchester trending on Twitter as the residents of the city offered beds, sofas and spare rooms to complete strangers that were unable to get home in the immediate aftermath. If hate caused this terrible event then love is the outcome in so many ways.
About the Stuff:
Find me a girl that doesn’t love new shoes and I’ll find you a big fat liar, liar, pants on fire! RealEvil has a new release available at Shiny Shabby that puts a little spring in your step. These beautiful heeled sandal with a floral, jewelled adornment are perfect for summer wear or spring formal. There’s a multitude of options with the texture and colour change hud for you to mix and match with your favourite outfits too. They come in fits for Belleza, Maitreya (worn) and Slink feet.
The dress I’ve matched these up with is a new release from United Colors at Tres Chic and is extremely versatile and multi-purpose. The top, or the skirt, can be hidden to use just one and match up with other items, such as a pair of jeans or shorts for a completely different look. My opinion…why on earth would you hide this skirt! It’s drop dead gorgeous and so flattering to the leg and buttock area that is revealed. The dress comes in fits for Belleza Freya and Isis, Slink Hourglass and Original and Maitreya Lara (worn) and in 10 colour options. Fatpack purchasers can also mix and match the colours on the top and skirt separately.
