52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Shuttle Gray

This color reminded me of a song I sang in a choral group many years ago. I remember the gray, sad feeling it gave me but at the same time I luxuriated in its deep harmonies and beauty. And it makes you feel gray without ever using the word once.

Rainsong

Houston Bright (b. 1916)

Clouds hang heavy above the plain
They bring the smell of a summer rain,
And my heart, it is heavy too,
And my spirits are heavy too.
(See how the rains do pour as if forevermore.)

Clouds drift low in a shadowed spell
They bring the memory of one farewell,
When a spirit from life withdrew,
When the soul of my love withdrew.
(See how the rains do pour as if forevermore.)

Raindrops fall from a sodden sky
They drum a querulous lullaby
As in memory of one who sleeps,
As if crooning to one who sleeps.
(See how the rains do pour as if forevermore.)

I am not able to embed it, but there is a lovely version HERE, if you want to hear it.

So this color suited my mellow ponderings. After I saw the color for this week I headed over to the Designer Circle and found this perfect mesh dress from Ibizarre. Dress, check. And then I saw the amazing grouping of gray-toned shoes that Pixieplumb Flanagan put out for the color challenge this week. What an awesome idea! I very quickly found something perfect! Shoes, check!

Fashion For Life 2012: Zaara, Baby Monkey, Feather, Mina

What’s more fun than taking photos of yourself? Taking photos with a friend! Today I got to have a little fun time with my girl Shay, whom you probably know from Shayariel’s World of SL Fashion. You can see we had a great time seeing the sights on her adorable scooter!

Most of what I wearing can be found on the Aika sim. My blue and white top is one Zaara Kohime’s FFL items in her store. It goes perfectly with Pixieplumb Flanagan’s Nadine pumps, which are Baby Monkey’s FFL item. Hm….did they plan this???

Shay is wearing the denim one-piece dress from Sakuya Lane at Feather. The vendor is on the inside of the storefront wall, so don’t miss it! Cerberus Noel’s fabulous mesh boots are the perfect match, as is Mina Nakamura’s adorable Kim hairstyle. All of these items are FFL donation items, so that’s a lot of support you can give to cancer research!

2. For taking the time to choose out the colors.

3. For creating and moderating the best in-world group ever!

4. For cheering us on and commiserating when we were color-hating.

5. For helping us out when we couldn’t figure out what color a banana was.

6. For teaching me how to figure out windlight, screenshots and computer graphics.

7. For taking such amazing photos…I couldn’t wait to see yours every week.

8. For being so encouraging to all color-challengers.

9. For your fabulous sense of humor.
