I… have got to… get this…stubborn beast…home! My donkey, Dobby, wandered off the ranch early this morning while I was busy putting on my makeup. I finally found him, but he absolutely refuses to go anywhere! I’m hot and thirsty and have another mile to go. I brought a few carrots, his favorite treats, but he’s eaten all of those. I need a donkey whisperer!
Happy First Day of Spring! Spring makes me think of all of the lovely floral colors, especially lavender. I found this dress on sale this weekend at Just Because. As of this posting, the dresses are still available at the Saturday Sale price of 100L each. The single color options were all lovely pastel shades, but this one found its way into my shopping cart.
The earrings by Dark Mouse are also still available at the weekend sale price of 50L.
St. Patrick’s Day is finally here! I couldn’t resist doing several posts this week, celebrating this very green holiday. My name is Emeraldmist after all!
The sweater dress and boots are available for 5L each during the Fab Free St. Patty’s Day hunt, which runs until March 31. The shamrock aura is also from the hunt. How lucky can you get!! Just look for the little rainbows. See the website for more information.
Outfit — Clover Lorraine Sweater and Boots by Paper Sparrow (HUNT item, 5L each)
While digging around in my inventory, I came across the 2022 Lelutka EvoX Raven head. I also found the Eve skin by The Skinnery to go with it. Both were very generous gifts from Lelutka. I told you that I don’t unpack and organize in a timely fashion!
I tried out the various skin tones and liked the bronze tone the best. I also adjusted the shape that came with it. She reminds me of a very early version of Em (or as close as I could get to this look in 2008!) Meet Camille.
Dress and Boots — Claramente Sweater and Boots by Scandalize
It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day! I found this dress and coordinating headband on the FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt. It runs through March 31st, so you still have time to grab the goodies, which run from 0L to 5L each. There is a list of prizes on the HUD, which is found at the InfoHub. There are also a couple of freebies/gifts in this photo — see list below.
My hubby and I have a Friday night tradition of listening to Dean Martin and sipping martinis. This morning at The Willows, Jaffee Gaffer will present two hours of music by the Rat Pack. I love it when real life and virtual life blend so nicely!
It’s Barbie’s Birthday! When I was a kid, I had a Barbie, but her wardrobe was so pitiful, she wasn’t much fun. The girl down the street, however, had several small suitcases stuffed with glitzy, glamorous clothing and accessories. I probably drove her nuts when I went over there, asking to play Barbie, just to borrow some of her doll’s outfits.
Today is also the Grand Re-Opening of my blog, Excessories. Since I’m a Second Life Shopaholic, I have an overflowing, excessive inventory. Forget trying to stay under (mumble-mumble thousand) items. I’m blowing the lid off by doing even more shopping, then unpacking, sorting and sharing photos of my goodies, most of which I’ve acquired during the many sales and giveaways by generous creators.
I’m very good at shopping and hunting, but my sorting tends to lag, so there will be a lot of older items in these photos, some of which may no longer be available.
When I was little, if my mother was cold, she made me put on a sweater. I hated that! But, here I am making Em do that. It’s a chilly and breezy day today, so Em has to stay warm too.
I purchased this sweater and skirt set from Beyond a few weeks ago. It was on sale, with each piece priced separately. I couldn’t make up my mind which ones I wanted, so I ended up splurging on the fat pack. It was also sale-priced, so it wasn’t too much of a splurge!
I chose transitional colors — a bit of gray for the sky (and my mood) and pink for comforting hope of spring.
