New Year’s Eve 2016

Posted in High Fashion,SL Meets RL by Piper Hanriot on December 31, 2016

Usually in the run up to New Year’s Eve I post some photos of gorgeous party dresses and waffle a bit about them and their amazing designers.  This year I have decided to still post photos of fabulous New Year’s Eve party dresses by some of SL’s amazing designers, however I have decided to also reflect a little on this past year as well.

I have to say that for me personally, 2016 has gone by very quickly indeed and now thinking back on everything that has happened around the globe, it does make me wonder whether the reason 2016 has gone by so fast is so that no-one has had too much time to think about one event before the next one has occurred.

For me, 2016 has been a pretty good year, albeit busier than the past few years.  I have juggled my full-time job with making celebration cakes for friends, family and customers, moved house, had an awesome holiday in the USA and went to the Cake International event in November.  This has not left me with a great deal of time in SL, however I was able to organise a fashion show for TWA / Silvan Moon Designs, which was great fun to do and apart from my usual blogging, I hope to achieve a few more things in SL in 2017.

Aside from the horrible incidents that have happened, some of which continues around our beautiful planet, I am not sure if it’s due to social media, which means we receive news faster now than a decade ago, but we have also lost so many wonderful people this year. From David Bowie, Prince, Victoria Wood, Alan Rickman, Leonard Cohen, Caroline Aherne, George Michael, Rick Parfitt, Mohammed Ali, Sir Terry Wogan, Gene Wilder, Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds and so many more.  My heart goes out to their families and  hope that in time they find peace.  Recently in SL we also lost a very talented fashion designer, Dani Plassitz.  During my time of being in SL, I was able to speak to her a few times, she was warm and kind and will be missed greatly.

Well ladies, gents and loyal readers around the world, here in the UK there are only a few more hours left of 2016. I take this opportunity to wish you all a good year in 2017. May it be filled with good health, happiness, love and laughter.  For the real world, my wish is for a more peaceful year and of course hope for better things.

Happy New Year everyone.  Until next year …

P.S – I will post details of my styling in the photos above on my Flickr page https://www.flickr.com/photos/47089508@N08/
