I have had a rough two weeks! No trauma … just the sustained pressure of busy-ness as summer ends, and we slowly shift around to the fall season. I have looked forward to drawing a breath this weekend, and blogging again! This look has been kicking around in my inventory for quite some time now. No real newness to feature here, but I enjoyed how the photo came out — very evocative for me.

As many of you may know — I’ve been working diligently on clearing out my inventory a bit. One of the things I did when taking this picture was to retire all my ETD hair. I wear one of my favorite styles here as a tribute. I couldn’t bring myself to actually delete them, but I did pack them away — reducing my inventory count by… uhm… approximately 850 items. ETD has been my staple hair since I started in SL. Here I found the first prim hair I could love, its copper texture and color became part of my avatar’s identity for me. So, I was just a little sad to put it away… but times changes, designers move on, and so do we.

A couple of other things I want to highlight here. The cute, white engineer boots are from Sakka’s Studio. Would you believe that I bought these at LAST year’s Shoe Fair? I love having an engineer boot in this color– something different than grungy and worn. And, as luck would have it … you can still get these at this year’s Shoe Fair πŸ™‚ The wings from Material Squirrel are absolutely fantastic — I love the texture on them, and the delicate color. And the lovely fairy-ish dress is from one of my favorite fantasy clothing stores, Angelwing. This was a freebie, and I’m not sure its currently available. But — Angelwing always has some great freebies, MM boards, hunts and gift… if you enjoy Gorean and fantasy wear, or just something out of the ordinary, be sure to check it out. By the way — my ability to stack the legbands over these terrific fishnets from Vextra Messing is a tribute to being able to wear multiple items on the same clothing layer in the latest viewer! Yay — I love that πŸ™‚ I’m not going to say much about this skin — its been analyzed to death. I loved it as soon as I saw it… and I felt an emotional response to it in this picture. It spoke to me about manifesting things that usually go unseen. That’s all πŸ™‚
