Pushing back with pretty.

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.

The Back Story.

I popped in world last night thinking about doing nothing in particular except maybe fixing a bad job I had done on a previous post. But then I heard this chatter. Something about some  kind of insane blow out at the Sea Hole? Stuff for the cheaps? A thousand little SL voices all chiming in at once about miracles and surprises and one great splendiferous gas at one great splendiferous gas of a store?

Okay. Sign me up. So off I went to see what all the noise and hubbub was about. Yes, there is one item in each of the collections that’s being offered for 50L, which ain’t bad for some cleverly designed stuff. My one disappointment was in the color choices for the sale items. I was so ready to plunk down Ls for versions in yellows and reds and oranges, but everything offered at that price was more in the black, grey and lilac family. That’s all well and good, mind you, but when you’re hankering for a rich orange, the traditional half-mourning color of lilac just doesn’t quite  cut it.

Know what I’m sayin’?

Still, a good dress is a good dress. And I am soooo pleased to be bringing to the feeds this much needed respite from the maddening inundation of virtual “whore” aesthetics….

The Back Story.

I used to hang out at this joint all the time. Good music, and all, with attention to the 1920s through 1950s. Plus it’s the only place I know of where one could find a ska show. Yes, I know, ska is not exactly ‘old standards’, but still, it was fun.

That being said, it was a little thick with women. Etoile is not in the least bit interested in getting involved in virtual romantic imbroglios, but when she gets all dressed up to cut the rug old school style, it’s nice when she can do it with an old school partner.

The Back Story.

52 Weeks of Color – olive

How funny is this? I originally put this together for a possible contender in last week’s Tangerine challenge. I opted for a different look, but figured I could put this up as a mid-week post. Serendipity works in mysterious ways.
