A few weeks ago, I grabbed this shirt at Forever Young during Grenade Free Wednesday, and wore it around on my character during RP. Eve, smart as she is, linked the outfit I was wearing to Christina Ricci in Black Snake Moan, which I hadn’t seen and wouldn’t have thought of. But after a few tweaks & a hair change, the outfit might just fit the part!

I remember the day a compact disc player entered our house. It was Christmas and it was my sister’s gift from my parents. We were, of course, excited and in awe of this large black boombox, and couldn’t wait to pop in something to play. What did we have? Well, my sister got The Bodyguard soundtrack, and I got Salt ‘n Pepa’s Very Necessary. I can’t even remember now what year it was, but it would’ve been around Christmas 1993, I think. Or 1994. Either way, it just struck me in that Passage of Time sort of way that this was 18-19 years ago, when I was around 9-10 years old, and once again, I feel… older.

Be sure to pick up one of these cozy sweatshirts at [A] Limited (joint venture between Ivy Graves of Atomic/Illusory & Tyr Rozenblum of Aura) while you can. There’s a lot of color choices, but only 500 of each, and they won’t be released again! Opening April 6th at midnight (with cupcake hats, bags, tshirts, & skins, too!)
Just over a year in SL, I’d pretty much had my fill. Made some nice friends, seen some things, but on the whole, it wasn’t doing much for me. New Year’s Day, I hung out at an old club affectionately knowing as TBR after not logging in for nearly a week. Through chance, I meet Vicious Sparrow, whom I come do adore over the course of the next 1.5 months. (And whom I definitely adore 3 years later, mushiemushieloveandhappiness.) I want to spend more time with him, but he’s roleplaying sometimes. Solution? Try out roleplay! Enter… the Crack Den.
On the grid since about 2006, it’s been the main reason I log into SL for 3 years now (sometime in the next week will be THE date, I just don’t know when it is). I’ve met tons of wonderful, creative people, some downright crazy ones, & have learned more about communication and management than I have in RL to date. It’s been an experience, and I look forward to more. So this! I dedicate to that wonderful community by pulling myself more towards my character’s more tomboyish roots (flashback). Plus, I love this Entente sweater, it’s so cozy.
I do so wish it’d stay cold long enough where I live to keep wearing hoodies, because I love them. Next to jeans, it might be my favorite item of clothing in the real world. Cozy, warm, & with the right fit, makes you still look feminine, or at least sporty.
Autumn officially ended yesterday, & soon will come the days when I can’t even in roleplay pull out most of my wardrobe. But at least there’s cute boots, sweaters, & pants to mix in with the beloved tanks & otherwise skimpier tops my character normally puts on.
