52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Feldgrau

In front of the barracks,
In front of the main gate,
Stood a lamppost,
If it still stands out front,
So will we see each other there again,
By the lamppost we’ll stand,
As before, Lili Marleen.

Our two shadows
Looked like one.
That we were so much in love,
Anyone could see at a glance.
And everyone will see it,
When we stand by the lamppost,
As before, Lili Marleen.

Already called the guard,
“They’re blowing taps.
That could cost you three days!”
“Comrade, I’ll be right there.”
Then we said farewell,
How much would I have rather gone with you,
With you, Lili Marleen.

It knows your footsteps,
Your beautiful walk.
It burns every evening,
Although it forgot me long ago.
And if a mishap should befall me,
Who will stand by the lamppost,
With you, Lili Marleen?

Out of the silent space,
Out of the depths of the earth,
Lifts me as in a dream
Your loving mouth.
When the nocturnal mists swirl,
I will be standing by the lamppost,
As before, Lili Marleen.

Lili Marleen, German Love Song

Thanks to Stewart for the idea this week. Since our color got a bit military I made him dress up as a soldier. This song was a favorite of both German and Allied soldiers during World War II. At the bottom of this post I have pasted a video for anyone wanting to hear the real thing!

Congratulations to Caroline Endersleigh, who wins the Maitreya dress from last week. Send me an IM in-world to let me know which color you would like!

For next week, I will give away a gift card from Sn@tch. Ivey Deschanel is one of the great cornerstones of SL fashion and her recent mesh work is to die for. You know the drill!

    Love the idea! You’re a beautiful Lili Marlen:)

  2. Nicandra Laval

    War is terrible..as even can be felt in the sad song too. Mixed feelings seeing the german uniform too many innocent people died because of that terrible war,Eliza..but you look beautiful as Lili Marleen

  3. Alexandra

    This is fantastic ! You actually show the essence of feldgrau. Love your Lilli Marlene re-enactment unter die Lanterne.

  4. Softpaw Sommer

    Wow, your photos are so romantic.

  5. Sama Yalin

    Love the first picture: romantic and also a bit melancholic. There must have been many couples like that, where the young man never returned home.

  6. Rudhmellowen

    WOW, just wow!!! I love the romance and the history

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Bright Turquoise

First of all, congrats to Aeva Nikolaidis for winning the Las Islas shells from last week! Watch for them in-world, dear!

I had a lovely day with my friend Caroline at Izzie’s main store. It was a perfectly bright and happy day. And there was so much to choose from in this color it was hard to make a decision as to what to wear, and what to give away! But at least we had fun, and we got to use a great pose from Label Motion at the POSE FAIR!

Fashion For Life 2012: Epilogue

I don’t know about you, but it seemed like FFL was here and gone in the blink of an eye this year. In the end we did meet Harper’s challenge goal and she made her triumphant way through the sims as promised, in pig form. So they do fly, after all, it seems. You can see a couple of pictures of Harper happily on her way here and see how much was raised during the event.

So it’s goodbye to FFL for this year…see you in 2013!

Worth The Wait

There has been a lot to look forward to in SL lately and is it ever welcome news! There has been a lot of buzz around the opening of the mesh collaboration store coldLogic. The items I have seen so far show a lot of style and artistry. I’d probably wear all of it in RL. Just look at the edges and stitching on the pants! I don’t even have a great graphics card, but there’s not a hint of a jagged edge or blurred seam anywhere. I actually had people stop me and ask where they could get them.

Another big release this week was the opening of Ikon Innovia’s new store with a new line of eyes. I’m pretty sure every girl on the grid was waiting for this release with bated breath (and probably not a few guys). Utopia is noticeably different from the Sunrise line, with subtle coloring and a slightly striated reflection that gives them a bit of a geometric cast. However, they retain all the life and luminosity that made us fall in love with Ikon’s work in the first place. Perfectly, perfectly lovely. And Ikon is really one of the nicest guys I ever met in SL. What’s not to love?

Zoe

I have to admit that when I saw this new release from Agnes Finney I had mixed feelings. One the one hand, it’s so adorable! The polka dots are so cheery and match my pearl earrings from Endra Graves. On the other hand, my first thought was, “what a cute outfit to wear back to school!” Whereupon I promptly decided I was crazy because it’s not time to go back to school yet, is it? Is it?!?!?

So instead I will go out for a lovely walk on this nice breezy summer day.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Olive

The Olive Tree

If Life is less than one day’s passing sigh
within eternity, and if the year
too soon revolved, may never reappear,
if, helpless, all things here on earth soon die,
what do you dream about, caged soul, and why
this trouble take when darkness hovers near ?
Although your dreams sing on to regions clear,
you seem a soul in pain whose wings can’t fly.
Seek there the Good above, beyond the sky,
there the rest which to each man lends cheer,
there is Love, there pleasure, thither steer,
there, my soul, is heaven found, on high.
There you shall realize that rare rapport
with Beauty which in this world I adore …

What She’s Not

Today taking photos in SL was full and unabashed escapism from real life, so here is what my avatar is NOT today.

  • This girl does not have forty 9th graders who cannot keep track of their work.
  • This girl does not have to deal with 12th graders who think they can write all over desks and walls at their discretion.
  • This girl does not have a stack of grading that could rival the Eiffel Tower.
  • And this girl does not have to worry about entertaining and teaching 40 visiting grandparents in addition to her students today.

This girl has obviously got it together and is probably always doing something wonderful and fascinating. And it was fun to be her for a bit.

At least today is Friday.
