The Back Story.
Here we are a bit more like my usual self, although I’m not too sure how I feel about the revival of the early 70s maxi dress. Still, this is a denim sort of number.

A bit faded, but still denim.

The Back Story.

I didn’t run screaming at the thought of pink. I rather like it, although I am awfully tired of way it is used to symbolically “honor” women and “show we care” about them. Slap on a pink glow necklace, and there you go, steroidal baseball guy… proof that you “honor” your mother. What more would you ever need to do? Think of women as equal? Not relegate any woman who isn’t a mother to a lower status? Stop it with all the symbolic “honoring,” and let go of your desperate death clutch on the meaningless reigns of patriarchal power?

Nyah… why would anyone want to do that when merchandisers can just sell folks a bunch of pink crap, and it’s all good? “I honor women… see… I’m wearing pink!” ‘kay, ‘kay, ‘kay, whatever.

Evidently, I have something of a love/hate relationship with pink. Its feminized symbolic construction bugs me. At the same time, girly pink is really appealing. At the same time, it’s such a trivialized color, and thus symbolically trivializes and marginalizes women, and I hate that. And what do I go and do for this challenge? I went total femmie-girly-girly.

It’s complicated, as they say.

The Back Story.

Out of one beady little eye, I was watching the story of the Hoover Dam on American Experience while taking these photographs. It made for a grim mood, but sometimes that works, right?

The Back Story.

When Luna Jubilee gave us the heads up about this week’s challenge last week, she forgot to change the name of the color; there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth at the thought of another round of eggplant, and what an anemic looking eggplant it was. But I knew she meant periwinkle. Of course she did. A few days later she fixed the boo-boo, and it is… wait for it… periwinkle!

I was well under way with this one by that time. I had this “Marilyn” dress from an Icing lucky board this past winter sitting in my closet doing nothing but collecting the odor of mothballs. Out it came into the fresh air of spring. I just couldn’t decide upon the accessories, so I give you two versions, both quite romantic, but varying in their exuberance for the season. I predict there will be a lot of versions of this piece coming at us this week. That lucky board was a major clusterf^@k, to say nothing of fug fest (I’m a big fan of the fugly in SL, so don’t get me wrong here).
