So, here we are. A new year, a new start, and a very HAPPY NEW YEAR to all KITTYWITCHIN’ readers!
Forgive me if I’m sounding a little melancholy but 2015 was a hard year for so many of us, myself included. Add to that international events that saw the world so divided, and you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who wasn’t glad to see the end of the old year, and welcome the new.
I’ve spoken many times on this blog about my own personal attitude to blogging, about it being about pleasure rather than commitment first and foremost, and that’s why you’ll see that I barely posted over the festive season. I gave myself some much needed time off from life in general. This week I’ve had a week off work to just relax, re-focus and just BE. It’s done me the power of good, and whilst I can’t say that I feel re-invigorated (it’s a damp, dank January so far after all) I sure do feel rested.
So here’s the first blogpost of 2016. I haven’t actually logged in world much at all during the festive period but I’m glad I did today because it’s been lovely to receive some gorgeous items to share with you that are part of the MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY event. This dress is the first item I opened and as soon as I saw it I knew it would work perfectly with this hair that I blogged from ‘Winter Trend’ last month, ‘Miriam’ by EN VOGUE.
The dress, called ‘Audrey’, is from PPD (PINK PEARL DESIGNS) and it’s a nice take on an often-repeated Second Life wardrobe staple. The stud embellishment across the torso looks good, and it winds itself around to the back of the dress. I didn’t find any major fit mesh issues that couldn’t be corrected via HUDS, and the dress fits BELLEZA ‘Freya’ and ‘Isis’ along with Maitreya ‘Lara’ (worn here) as well as SLink. Because of the long sleeves and the shape of the dress it has a formal feel, and in my opinion it works particularly well when worn with updos and of course this beret style.
You’ll be able to purchase ‘Audrey’ from the MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY EVENT that opens on the 10th, and promises to be a corker. I’ll be sharing some more of the goodies that you’ll be able to buy from the event on these pages over the next few days, so watch this space!
