All the world's a stage,And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts...
As You Like It Act 2, scene 7, Wm. Shakespeare
I've been in a very dark state of mind lately...and it does not take a genius to figure out. My husband's birthday was 9/11 and he passed away suddenly at a young age in 2000. So THE 9/11 was the first birthday without him. My loss is nothing compared to that horrible day but at the same time I feel a connection to the event. Since the anniversary, I've been thinking a lot about transitions, particularly some of mine...from married to my soulmate to a single parent with a busy career and now that my child is older trying to find my happy place again. This is just a thing I need to dig myself out of and I've come far, but if my posts seem weird or off or whatev (than usual), please bear with me.
There are 2 looks I love. One is very tailored and clean, and the other is a bit more bohemian and funky. The new dresses from Fashionably Dead at Collarbor88 absolutely fit my sensibility. I think I need to go back and get every color but like usual, my mouse finger instantly went for the black. It's quite sheer on it's own, quite fine by me, but also makes it fun to play peekaboo with various colors.
I love myself some Ellantha Larsson and she has just come out with some new stuff in time for Jewelry Fair, which opened today. Puritan Spirit is a rerelease of a piercing she made a year or so ago and has been completely revamped with new textures, shadows and all the bells and whistles. It includes a nifty new HUD so you can have a field day with options. Best of all, it is her charity item and is only 100 L. Get it or forever rue that you didn't. Here is a lovely photo of the HUD for your SL enjoyment.
