The Naturist Vacation Suitcase (update)

When Pookes returns from whatever Pookes is doing 🙂 she’ll be taking over the ‘Naturist Vacation Suitcase’ series because, we’re pleased and sorry to say, Daphne is moving on.

I’d originally envisaged that she’d be with us until June, and I’d be packing the ‘suitcase’ items into a bag to take off on my own first naturist RL holidays of the year, but another blogging opportunity has arisen for Daphne, and while we’ll be sorry to see her go, we’re delighted that a chance has arisen so early for her to realise her own blogging dream.

She’ll not be blogging for just a little while yet, but when she does we will be announcing it here, because I think it’s an exciting concept that many avatars might enjoy reading. Daphne will be reinventing herself as ‘Daff’ for her own project, and she has promised to leave us with one final posting in which we’ll allow her -for reasons to be revealed- to pop up a link to her own blog.

Daphne, or the newly christened ‘Daff’, leaves us with our very best wishes and thanks for what she has provided for us over the past few weeks. 🙂

Can I just add that this coming week will be busy, busy, busy in RL, so don’t expect too many SLN posts. On the upside, the following week is practically empty of RL committments 🙂 so we’ll be back on track in time for a St Patrick’s Day post, amongst others, in the second week and into the third week of March.



My naturist vacation suitcase (1)

We’re starting a new ‘series’ today, and introducing a new writer to the staff, albeit in a temporary capacity.

Daphne has been around SL for quite some time, isn’t naturist, and is more inclined to be seeking out bargains -freebies and dollarbies- than hitting the naturist beaches. An aspiring writer, with plans for -eventually- her own blog, we thought she’d be perfect in a certain capacity. We’ll hand you over to Daphne to introduce herself, and to explain the thinking behind this brief (now until June) series.



Hi! I’m Daf, or Daphne, and as Pookes has said, I’m not a SL (or RL) naturist. So what am I doing on this naturist blog? Looking back through the blog you’ll find that the ladies will regularly reference how naturists will ‘dress up’ in the evenings, often in flowing, airy gowns and sometimes sexy, slightly revealing costumes. I would say from experience that this is also a familiar tale at non-naturist vacation locations, where the bikini is cast aside as evening approaches, and a bit of dressing up in advance of an evening meal, entertainment and dancing is part of the deal.

With that in mind, my brief is to source what I imagine will be a heaving suitcase, with a different costume for each night of the vacation, and all quite glam and glitzy. And the brief is to make it sexy and cheap. That’s ‘cheap’ in a sense of freebies and dollarbies, not ‘trashy’.

As Ella has explained, her previous experience on another blog helped her with the writing of this one, and so there’s a sense of me serving an apprenticeship on SLN before, over the summer, creating my own fashion blog. So I’d like to say thanks to Ella and Pookes for giving me the chance to write and I hope I don’t let either of you down.

I’m going to kick off with this Boho styled dress, currently available at the ‘With Love’ fair. Priced at L$0, I imagine it’s a light and airy number, very summery, that will be cool on hot summer nights.

Looks good, yes?

I’ll try to provide regular additions to the suitcase between now and June. And you never know, I might even have to try the SL naturist experience for myself somewhere along the line! Who can tell?
