The sporting life.

The Back Story.

This was my entry in the April Le.Look styling contest. I didn’t even get an honorable nod. That’s totally bogus.

No doubt my outsider status ~ in combination with not plunking down quite enough L’s ~ keeps me out of the running, but that’s high school for you. In the meantime, I’m completely loving these DeLa boots and had been looking for an excuse to get this jewelry set for absolute ages. I probably won’t bother with that contest again, but it’s not a total loss. Given the potential pay-off, I’d say it’s worth one little flutter. My guess is that it probably helps to be buds with an insider, but if they found themselves inundated with quality entries, it would force them to be a bit more sporting about the whole thing.

The Back Story.

I was struggling mightily trying my darnedest to come up with something that would go with some pink mesh pants that just were not working. I wound up in greens and browns. Of course.

And I’m loving this grassy sim. It’s very Christina’s World. But it’s my world… back off, Christina.

The Back Story.

Over-the-knee boots are not a wardrobe staple for Etoile. But these things just seemed to come together.

And, oh, hey…. it’s my 100th post. The little congratulatory blurb that WordPress sent me included a Gloria Steinem quote: “I don’t like to write, but I like to have written.” Is this really writing?

The Back Story.

There’s this really interesting art installation of sorts at Delicatessen that has all kinds of bizarro avatar get-ups for free. They are not cheapy looking, ‘let’s play naughty dress up’ kinds of costumes, either, but actually have some thought, originality and cleverness to them.

Here I’m only wearing a hat from one of the collections, and I wish you could see it move. It flops around almost like a living thing.

The Back Story.

I feel spring coming on, despite the late winter awfulness out there. And my mood from yesterday — wanting to counter the in-your-face, ramped up, cartoon sex bombardment the feeds have been heavily besieged with lately — continues. The promise of spring and all the wacky pudendum-bearing hawty pony-riders trotting around lately push me right into the land of too precious. I think I’ll be hiding out here a while.
