Traditional

Gos Boutique released the lovely Vicky boots at Fameshed this month, and they are so very like a favorite pair of mine in RL that I knew I would have to blog them. Finding suitable pants to wear with them, however, was a challenge. Pants in SL tend to be of three varieties. One: Skintight from top to bottom; Two: highwaisted with super bell-bottoms (not a bad look, but the trend now is for the bell bottom to be so long that it actually cover the whole shoe. What then, is the point of wearing a cute shoe? Not to mention the potential for tripping and falling over your own clothing.); Three: Tight on the legs but with a baggy and low-riding crotch. I freely admit in my middle aged frumpiness that I have never been able to understand either the fashion sense or the practical idea of having a wad of fabric between your legs that serves no purpose. Does one wipe one’s hands on them? Smuggle things into the movie theater to avoid paying exorbitant prices for snacks? Incubate a marsupial? These are the mysteries of life that confound me. At any rate, I was able to find these great pants from Mutiny in Heaven; fitted and decently waisted and with a leg cut to accommodate my new boots without totally swamping them. Given the amount of ankle boots available on the grid, it would make sense that there would be pants that work with them. They would certainly be welcomed by me! I should mention that if you wear a mesh body these pants are not fitmesh; I had to wear the unrigged version of the boots to make them work with the pants. Another favorite this week is the beautiful Kingslie hair from Shylah Honey of Damselfly. I love the beautiful sweeping textures in this design.

Femme

I remember watching Luc Besson’s La Femme Nikita after returning to the United States after spending a couple of years in France. I remember feeling very cosmopolitan because now I could watch French films  without English subtitles—the very height of sophistication. I was not prepared, though, for how big an impact it would have on me. Though there have been several creditable remakes both in film and television, none of them has come close to the raw, gritty and fantastic 1990 original with the wonderful Anne Parillaud. If you haven’t seen it, give it a whirl. It’s pretty good with English subtitles too.

My Remedy

My dad always told us that if we weren’t feeling good we should go for a walk outside. Most of the time the walk cleared my head and made me feel better. Dads know stuff. Wayward Winter ends tomorrow so if you haven’t had a chance to check it out you can still do so today and tomorrow.

Calling

In my student days I lived in Chapel Hill, North Carolina on the third floor of an apartment complex that had a dense wood behind it. It is to this day my favorite place I have ever lived. In the wood were bright yellow American goldfinches, hawks, sparrows, towhees and my favorite, the Northern Cardinal.  The cardinals would fly in a swooping, rising and falling pattern until they reached my balcony, where my birdfeeder hung. I spent a lot of hours sitting by the window and watching the birds come and go, and in the spring seeing the young ones fledge from the nest and hop adorably around on the ground searching for seeds and calling to each other. The place I live now is fully urban with more asphalt than trees, and the only birds we get are the raucous and belligerent European starlings who do well in parking lots and the occasional urban square of lawn. In the winter, though, I think back to those magical snowfalls and ice storms in North Carolina and the flash of crimson red moving about on the white snow. One day I want to live in a place like that again.

The Neve/coldLogic team has released beautiful winter coats for the season and I chose one in creamy white for this photo today. I also love Sh0rtie’s mesh knit gloves from the Wayward Market; good realistic looking gloves are hard to find, especially if you are picky like me and like them to be pretty as well. These fit the bill and are available in several different color combinations. The star of the show is the Northern Cardinal from Half Deer. I bought these last year and they strike the same delight in me now as they did then.

I took this photo in front of my house on Studland Bay. It is part of the Tour of Lights, which runs through the end of tomorrow. Please feel free to stop by and have a look around, and follow the tour to see some of the other fun home decorations on the grid!

Take Me Places

It’s been awhile since I blogged one of Luna Jubilee’s couple poses, and I am always struck by the emotional connection implicit in her designs. This one is called Take Me Places and is available for a few more days at the Men’s Dept. Thanks to Barely for helping with the pose today.
