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?
