"Grand Illusion..."
...living within my escape.

I don't always have something to say. I ramble too much anyway. While out and about I found The Secret Store again, bought too much, but this look is so....me.

LOTD 6-28-11

Goodness, it's been so long since I have done this, I just about forgot how. Now that I am able to work from my main av, and lets face it, Dinalya has always been my main av, I have a lot more time to come on and get my inventory organized, play around with fashion and such. Yet, I still stand around in the same outfit for days it seems. Work tends to absorb about 60 hours a week, and with starting a side business as well... snapping a picture seemed impossible!

However, I obtained a large amount of poses from this fabulous designer, Purple Poses, who just recently got their own sim with DSE and has set up shop. If you haven't checked out their poses, it is a must. I went through them all and they are done so well I couldn't decide which one to work with first. I will be using their poses for a while, and absolutely love them! Put together with a new outfit from Nyte'N'Day, (new as of last week, separates) and the new flip-flops by Maitreya, looked like a sweet and cool outfit for the summer. The dock here is by BAZAR and, while I haven't gotten a chance to test it out with anyone yet, it looks fabulous! I could easily curl up here and day dream my summer away....

Grand Illusion...
...behind the mask!

Grand Illusion, to me, is a great many things. A place to share my adventures within the grandest illusion I know, Second Life. Exploration, friends and loved ones and best of all, fashion and the addiction that is, shopping! I often spend most of my time in SL working these days, but I still find time for the fashion, for decorating and landscaping and the pure obsessive nature of it all.
