{ Diners, Drive-ins and Divas! }

If you’re American and have any interest in the Food Network, this title may make you snicker a bit.. if so, good, my work here is done! ūüėõ ¬†If you’re not American and still get the play on words … even better! ¬†It all started with a sassy glam outfit from Shiny Shabby (thank you so much Dead Dollz!) and then the gift of this gorgeous vintage white (and driveable!) convertible by Consignment that you can get right now at the Arcade. ¬†I wanted to play up the diva look so gave myself a couple canine companions fitting for a rich girl… the¬†flottante puppies from {anc} were the perfect addition. ¬†And since I can never get enough of {anc}’s elegant and whimsical creations, I snuck some of their champagne Arcade offerings to turn this into an upper class tailgate! ¬†Vanity Hair’s “Not My Business” feels very retro and full of attitude so now we come full circle with the classic car and BAM!… “Diners, Drive-ins and Divas” is born.

Welcome to my strange and wonderful mind… hope you enjoyed it! ¬†Now drink up.. and get shopping!

Daphne_FINAL

For anyone that follows my work (even prior to blogging) they would probably say I have a certain style to my photos.¬† I am sure most of the time it comes across as more romantic and whimsical (like my last few posts), sometimes sensual.¬† Not usually edgy.¬† Although it’s fun to venture outside the box sometimes.¬† It’s one of the things I like best about Second Life actually: being able to change my style according to my mood or just simply to be different.¬† I’ve often felt that in my real life I am viewed a certain way… I’m a mom, the good girl, the wife.¬† I do dishes and laundry and carpool kids to soccer practice.¬† Yet there is so much more to my interests, my personality, ME… than what everyone sees.¬† In RL, I can’t dye my hair black and wear leather studded miniskirts when dropping my son off to school (well, I can, but I’m sure I’d get some pretty strange looks, particularly from my 6 year old).¬†¬† So sometimes I enjoy exploring those not so typically ‘good girl’ sides to myself through my SL.¬† Because here, I am anything I wanna be.¬† For the moment.
