I was about 10 minutes late starting my DJ set on Monday night. I took a nap before the set and lingered in one of those waking dreams where you are mostly awake, but hang onto that dream because you really don’t want to let go. It was a bizarre dream. I was grocery shopping with my mother and searching frantically for some barbecue sauce to make some short ribs while my mom stood in one spot insisting “I would be happy with just a turnip.” It’s not the sort of dream one would cling to, except Mom died in 2006 and it was good to see her, even if she just wanted a turnip. Today is Mother’s Day in the UK and I am seeing Happy Mother’s Day wishes on my timeline and thinking of Mom. I am glad I get to see her from time to time, even in silly dreams with turnips.
My dress today is from Silk Dreams and was created for Fashion For Life, the epic SL fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. It’s a gorgeous white satin with elaborate emerald green silk embroidery. I added the lovely DECO sequin pumps with it.
Such a gorgeous dress with the beautiful lace embroidery deserves the formality of gloves. Besides, my mom loved gloves.
The hair is from Truth, the red version from the special release for The Arcade. I left off the flowers. The huge necklace is from Paper Couture. The style suits the formality of the dress, but its outrageous size adds a wink.
The skin is from Swallow, also at The Arcade. I love her skins and spent far too much trying to win them all – though still a reasonable prize for 10 skins.
