Unbalanced


This one’s about the +grasp+ boots, which I saw on the feeds and loved despite their western overtones. There’s something irresistible about a toe that curls up off the ground… Maybe I was a jester in a past life. Maybe not, given that jesters wear loudly coloured outfits. I much prefer the pairing of black with a pale neutral like shell pink or beige, a colour that doesn’t have the graphic power of white and thus makes the outfit feel unbalanced.


I recently joined the LEO-NT vip group (60L fee) because I was dying for a latte. I didn’t want to RL walk for a half hour to get a real coffee (public transportation: figure it out America), so I searched for one in SL and found me a pile of group gifts at the shop. The latest gift is this hair accessory with peacock feathers and beads.

Why does everyone blog the 50L Friday items that everyone knows about already and no one can buy for love or money after Friday ends? Because in a good week it’s so damn fun to see how each blogger interprets the dizzying haul of goodies. (“Interprets” sounds pretentious, but it’s not if everyone is doing it.) Another reason for blogging the wares, of course, is that some stores leave their items out past Friday. And then there’s the love of quality: the colour of W&B’s Lismore dress, which shades from a rich beige to pale lemon and back again, is gorgeous, and the sexy Before Dark bodysuit from sur+ is the classiest I’ve seen.
