Hoping all of you who celebrate Passover or Easter have a wonderful holiday with family, friends and fellowship. In celebration, I thought I might dress like an easter egg. 🙂 Actually, this is TOSL’s wonderful High Tea dress perfect for the garden party or other celebrations of spring and sunshine. Gidge would also be sending her good wishes but is on holiday.
I wonder if I come by my love of argyle and tweeds by way of my ancient ancestory Macbeth or poor Duncan, his murder victim. It’s one of the difficulties of being a descendent of both the murderer and the victim, to whom should I lay claim? Frankly I doubt either one of them had an argyle as lovely as this. I don’t think Lady MacBeth did either for that matter. After all, IBizarre had not opened yet.
Well, I was technically in Error when I shot these pictures – in the Error sim, that is. I really wanted to share with you this beautiful sim. Certainly, it’s not conventional beauty rife with flowers and greenery and lush with life, but a desolate beauty that draws you in. I decided to wear the Creamshop Dalmation dress because its colors were so well-matched to the colors of the island.
I love Pixel Dolls. Have I said that before? The store was one of my early shopping discoveries back when I was pretty new to Second Life. It was probably the fourth or fifth store I discovered and within my budget range. Of course, with the amazing 50L sale that just ended, it’s even more affordable lately. It’s definitely a place for stocking up on good separated like this highwaisted skirt. Now this skirt is one that makes just about any shirt wearable. I think my readers know by now I am not a lover of the crop top look – not in RL or SL. I want my shirts long enough to reach my skirt or pants and long enough to tuck in. Sometimes though, a shirt is just so adorable I cannot resist and then it sits unworn. Unless, of course, there’s a highwaisted skirt that can coodinate. Luckily, Pixel Dolls made this skirt in a host of colors.
Stanley Kubrick fans, rejoice. There’s a theatre where you can wander around rooms and sets from Kubrick films including the surreal orange and white bathroom from Clockwork Orange, the milk bar and more. Upstairs at the Redrum Public House Cinema, you can settle in to enjoy the film in a comfy little theatre. I was kicking around a bit so dressed for comfort in these wonderful rolled up jeans and Chola shirt.
Morning @ Embryo - wearing Icing's Vixen in Sapphire.
Rolling Stone, my favorite magazine, gave 14 pages of its latest issue to a profile of one of my favorite singer-songwriters, Kris Kristofferson who is most famous for such great songs as Me & Bobby McGee and Help Me Make It Through the Night. My favorite, though, has always been Sunday Morning Coming Down. In his article, actor-turned-journalist Ethan Hawke, described how when Johnny Cash was first supposed to sing this song on live TV, censors told him he could not say “wishing I was stoned” but that while on the air, he looked at Kristofferson and sang it the way it was written. That song seemd to fit the mood of my shoot at Embryo where I wore the lovely Vixen dress from Icing. I have to thank Bhaio Shan for sending me the landmark – it’s a lovely place, though “it makes a body feel alone.”
On the Sunday morning sidewalk,
Wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
‘Cos there’s something in a Sunday,
Makes a body feel alone.
And there’s nothin’ short of dyin’,
Half as lonesome as the sound,
On the sleepin’ city sidewalks:
Sunday mornin’ comin’ down.
Evangeline Miles makes some of the most beautiful gowns in Second Life® - in fact, she should include an oxygen tank with every dress package because her gowns are always breath-taking. The most stunning, I think, is this one, the Imperial Moon gown - a gown so lovely I have bought it twice.
Watching every motion in my foolish lover’s game
On this endless ocean finally lovers know no shame
Turning and returning to some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion as you turn around and say
Ah, that’s just a silly title solely drummed up because the name of the dress is Line. There’s really nothing on the line in this post other than hoping you like the dress and the styling. The name comes from the name of the dress – line. Yes, line, not stripe. Of course, On the Stripe makes no sense whatever, so small mercies. I really liked this dress the instant I saw it. I love the texturing done on the bodice and the justaposition of cream, pumpkin and mango orange.
So a week ago or so, I saw a woman with fabulous medium length hair that she said she got at Analog Dog. I have gone looking several times now and I still haven’t found what I am looking for, but I did find this fab hairstyle that I fell in love with. I still want to find the other, but isn’t it fun to find something you love while looking for something else?
I cannot claim to be musically inclined although I come from a musical family. My father played banjo and sang in a Swedish folk band and on my mother’s side there are generations of professional musicians from opera singers to Grand Ole Opry stars. And I cannot carry a tune. It’s so unfair. Still, I love music and enjoy it in all its manifestations. Moxie Polano’s Piano dress is certainly a celebration of music – an extravagant celebration from the curving piano keys to the tiny little notes embellishing the shoulder.
