The Christmas Ball

It is that time of year again, when people gather together for a number of work related Christmas parties, galas, or get togethers. Each requires a different dress because we not want to risk being seen in the same thing twice by someone. I have found my dress for a few events that I will be attending, but still looking for a few more.

Overall Opinion:

While I enjoy all five of these gowns, I will admit I absolutely love two maybe three of them more. They were easy to fit, only issue was the final dress and the chest attachment which kept disappearing when I was near another object as if I was not wearing it. I eventually found a location that did not cause issues for the dress to be seen properly. Over all I am very impressed with these dresses and will use them again in the future when needed. I paired with an a shoe that I had previously blogged back in August and with a new set of jewelry from Indulge Temptation.

Dinner for One

Sometimes, I just need to an hour or two to myself and enjoy some solitude while I enjoy a good meal and nice refreshing glass of water or maybe soda. Today was one of those days. I needed a few hours to myself just to refocus after a hard work week. I did not want my family and friends to be forced to endure my bad mood, when they did nothing wrong. I found the perfect spot, not many around to make the place overly loud and the table I was seated at was nestled outside with a gorgeous view.

I found my Prince

I have wandered all over the Earth seeking my hearts one true love. I have sought out the strong of mind, believing I wanted a scholar only to learn they are married to their work. I have sought out the strong in body, believing they would be my protector only to learn they are in love with themselves. I have sought out the everyday individual, only to learn they are far to concerned what others think of themselves. I was about to give up when I saw the beauty in the beast, the one who I had been avoiding. I have found my prince.

Overall Opinion:

There is something about this gown that called out to me. Normally I would avoid clothing items of this nature, but something about this dress screamed I had to have it. I can think of two occasions (Hallowe’en and Day of the Dead) when I will wear this dress and really wish they were closer for me to celebrate.

Dress Code?

Recently, I attended a staff meeting at my job. Someone had been complaining about the clothing choices of some employees. A new dress code has been put into place that allows sue the right to only wear certain things that are deemed appropriate. I am a march to my own drummer and do my own thing type of gal and will find anyway to bend the rules to my ideal.

Overall Opinion:

Guarding the Wall

In every history book I have every read, it has always been the mans duty to guard the keep. Men fraught in battles and sought out allies to fight with or they agreed to the peace treaties during long integrate meetings. I did read about this very courageous lady who fought in battles and stood her ground when they found out. Today I guard the walls of my keep and like her, I will stand my ground if questioned by the men of the city.

Overall Opinion:

I like this gown, it is perfect for the days I wish to wander around medieval sims (a passion of mine in real life) and engaging in some fun role play. I can also see myself wearing it out dancing with someone special. I will admit, I even wore it to a themed welcome home party for a friends daughter.
