On the edge of seventeen

Today’s post started innocently enough with this pic of a gormless girl taking a turn at the mike. But Glitterati’s new Vocal poses and the wild hair and the hippie clothes all conspired to turn my studio into a stage. And those famous lyrics—so hauntingly familiar—fluttered into my mind.

Just like the white winged dove sings a song, sounds like she’s singing, ooo baby ooo, said ooo.

I never even liked Stevie Nicks—except for “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” which is an all-time fave—but as I get older I find that the really distinctive songs from my childhood make me feel good. Even if I ignored them when they first hit the airwaves. I can’t pinpoint the feeling: happy? safe? alive? (Or devastated in the case of “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” That song is calculated to make an aging spinster fall apart.)

Fashion notes: This understated new skin from AMD is called Teegan. She is available in Apple May’s impeccable range of velvety tones. (See them all at Bolloblog.) I was very lucky to receive the new Deco Knot jewellery and matching belt from Eclectica while I was styling this look. The set comes in silver as well as the gold version seen here. The cute avi in LeLutka’s frizzy hair is available from Magic Avi at SASE. Be warned: she has pointy ears! All the better to listen to corny 80s songs.
