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.

I don’t know about you, but I had an amazing and overwhelming weekend. Food, friends, and fireworks — who could ask for more, right? While I wasn’t thrilled to have to get back to work today there was something calming about being able to focus my mind on the tasks at hand and actually complete everything on today’s to-do list. When I got done with work, though, it was time to rush home and unpack some of the lovely things I acquired during the weekend’s shopping expeditions. Here I’m wearing just a few of the things I picked up at the new Truth District shopping sim. The sim itself was amazing; wonderfully laid out, beautifully built and landscaped, and, oh my, the stores! Many of my favorite creators have a presence here but I was even able to discover some new designers. And, despite the large number of vendors, there isn’t a single one who isn’t selling top quality merchandise. Because of the grand opening, many stores are offering freebies, including the hair, skin, top, and pants that I’m wearing above.
NOTE: All items except those with individual SLurl links are from Truth District.

I don’t know if this happens to everyone, or just women, or just me, but certain outfits and/or items of clothing remain inextricably linked to memories of significant events. For example, there’s a particular black lacy item in my lingerie drawer that I no longer wear, and yet am unable to discard. I wore it one special day, and every time I see it, I have to catch my breath as memories of that day come flooding back. I remember the other things I wore that day too. And how I almost didn’t want to wash them because they’d picked up his scent: subtle cologne, and sea air and something indefinably him.
Today was significant too, though for other reasons. And this is what I was wearing today.
