I always wonder if I should explain long absences or not. I remember an SLSecret mocking those explanations—particularly the ones on Flickr where people change their name to a status update. But I will risk it and explain I have had a head cold. If head colds were mountains this would be K2. I won’t claim Everest because I always imagine there could be something bigger, but damn, this was a doozy. It made me feel perpetually drunk, kind of swimmingly dizzy with anything lit (like a computer screen) a big bit of glow. It was almost entertaining in its capacity to incapacitate, but I am now on the mend and have a big new box of decongestant, so here we are. I put this outfit on about ten days ago, or so and finally took some pictures yesterday.
It began with the gorgeous tuxedo dress from Liziaah. It’s hot and sexy. Menswear details and forms do not have to look dress for success androgynous. Sometimes the contrast heightens femininity and this jacket really does that.
It is shorter than I like to wear, so I dug out some old tuxedo pants from my closet. They are by Milk Motion and were released about a year ago, but mesh is a hardy material and they look as good as new. The shoes are from Slink and I loved the multiple straps, I think they make a great counterpoint to the outfit.
My hair is from Lelutka and it swishes. It’s fun to wear, giving back that free spirit fun of flexi hair but without the wild intersections of the past. Kind of the best of both worlds. The skin is Glam Affair’s Avril and the jewelry is from Mandala.
You may note the setting is different. Well that is some really odd SL weirdness at work. I took the first two pictures and crashed. Then when I logged back in to Same Location, I was at this unfinished, mostly empty sim where this archway was located. I have no idea what happened because the first place is not the last place, they look nothing alike. Since I was map-hopping and just picked the spot because I like the color on the map, I have no idea where I was, though it was around or among the LEA sims.

Location: No idea. The first two I took at one of the LEA sims but had not copied the SLURL yet. I crashed and when I logged back in, I was at the place in the 3rd photo – a mostly empty sim except for that archway behind me. SL must have burped while I was logging back in .
