What a Doll!

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.

As for what’s shown above? Let’s GO!

Nap Until The Sun Shines

My biggest thrill in life is to read in the afternoon until I fall asleep and take a nap.

Sissy Spacek

I excel at napping. In fact if napping was a pageant skill, I’d be crowned queen! However, Apollo, the sun god, reminded me I was merely mortal and woke me up with an eyeball piercing ray of sunshine. Will somebody please close the curtains?

It Had to be Moonlight

I shopped until I dropped from L A G at the SL 16B event in Second Life. Of course, I had to pick up all of the marvelous group gifts. It was like Christmas in June! I have yet to open all of them — maybe I will by SL 17B!

I did pause at a few of my favorite designers’ shops to make some heavily discounted purchases. (There are some amazing deals at SL 16B.) I decided that the best way to show off this gorgeous hair and makeup is with a little bit of moonlight.
