Cinderella, thinking

Cinderella

Something about this melon pink gown that I put on for Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge made me think of Cinderella; I guess it’s the softness and prettiness and princess-pink-ness of it. In the story, I don’t think she had a lot of time to think about what the future would hold; she was swept away by the magic of it all and ran to greet everything it might bring. And we all know how that story ended.

Do you think, if she grabbed a moment to reflect before that fateful ball, that the words ‘happily ever after’ would have come to mind? I don’t think so. I think she was just living for the moment. She would have thought, do I go for it? She would have thought, yes, I’m going to go for it.

Celadon / 52 Weeks of Color Challenge

Celadon

The word ‘celadon’ — this week’s color for the challenge — makes me think of summer afternoons, escaping the heat by going to the museum, looking at collections of ancient Asian ceramics. So cool, that pale shade of green, light and yet filled with mystery; clear, yet hiding ancient secrets.

Before the party

Party Dress

Do you ever have that moment when, as you’re getting ready to head to a party you suddenly feel shy and awkward? It happens to me sometimes, particularly if I know I won’t know a lot of people there. As a child I was painfully shy. The thought of meeting strangers paralyzed me. Upon arriving anywhere new, I’d hide behind my mother and try and keep her from leaving, or look for a corner where I could disappear. But when my Mom would come to pick me up, I’d be happily playing with the other kids, or even leading them in my favorite games of make-believe. As an adult, I’ve mostly overcome it; people who know me can’t believe I was ever shy. But to this day, I have to reassure the little girl inside of me that she doesn’t need to look for a corner in which to hide, that it’s going to be fun, and people are going to be warm and welcoming. And it almost always is. And they almost always are.

STYLE

…of course, it always helps to be wearing a fabulous new party dress and amazing new shoes!

Dangerous

Dangerous

You take me there. Right to the edge of danger. I think, ‘Why? What am I doing? Why am I doing this?’ But then I stop thinking. I’ll only go there with you. With you, my love, my marvelous, dangerous love. I trust you’ll keep me safe, even as you take me to the brink.

The sweet sadness of Sunday afternoon

Sunday1

There’s a mood that starts to set it on a Sunday afternoon. You’re still out and about, you’re still enjoying the wonderful weekend, but that joy becomes tinged with sadness because you know it’ll be over soon, way too soon. This has been such a fabulous weekend I was worried that I wouldn’t have time to be in-world (or in-blog). But the lovely spring weather filled me with energy so, yes, here I am posting again. As I head out to dinner, I’m reminding myself to hold on to the weekend glow. And to let the Sunday sadness go.

Who are you? (and new from LeeZu!)

LunchDate2

When I first joined SL I created an avatar that looked as much as possible like my RL self. Later I made an alt who was physically everything my adolescent self had wanted to be and wasn’t: a tall busty brunette with emerald eyes and curly locks. Yet somehow she logged on, I felt a disconnect; she just didn’t feel like *me* in the way that my original avatar feels like me. Granted, the original has changed over time; she’s gotten taller and younger, thinner and blonder. I’ve also changed, though not quite in those same ways. But she still feels like me. So much so that, at a restaurant with friends the other day, someone behind me said “Ocean” and I turned around and said “Yes?”

Part of me envies those who fully transform themselves in SL. Fairies and furries, aliens and tinys — we see, and welcome, all kinds here. We know that some of the women we meet are really men and vice versa. It must be amazing to explore those other sides of oneself, and I wonder if it’s timidity or something else that keeps me from doing so. But, whatever path we choose, we’re either learning about our RL selves, or trying to run away from them. I hope I’m one of those who is learning.

STYLING

LeeZu’s new open blouse is amazing: the Arabesque (not shown here) is lovely and colorful; the Araplain, while less colorful is anything but plain. As always, LeeZu’s textures are intricately drawn and the prim attachments are flattering to every avatar. (Yup, I sprang for the fatpack.) I’m wearing it in green for today’s lunch date because it works so well with these great new Purple Moon sunglasses and lovely and practical shoulder bag from Les Petits Details.

Sweet and blue

Sweet and blue

This isn’t the outfit I chose to wear to today’s lovely wedding shower; it wasn’t quite right for February — at least in my part of the world.  But trying it on made me feel sweet and blue like an April afternoon, after the showers have passed by, and before the flowers start to bloom.

My first cheesecake shot…

Bedtime

I’ve of two minds about posting this — and may end up pulling it down — but the new VIP bed from Glitterati is so cute, as is the Baiastice lingerie. (I got a few sets, but am wearing the most modest among them here, for obvious reasons. *winks*)

Hmm…lingerie and a bed…could it be that Valentine’s Day is coming up?

52 Weeks of Color Challenge — Week 8 — Green

Ocean Green

As an Ocean-girl, well, green is one of my two main colors — the other being blue, of course. And, I have so very many green items in my inventory that this week of the challenge didn’t even necessitate shopping (alas). The hardest thing, for me, was not being able to showcase so very many beautiful green things. On the other hand, it was lovely to get the opportunity to show off some of favorites:

Hair: Truth — Bebe — Champagne
Skin: Laq — Vilda 09 Fair Glow skin (blonde)
