Women often feel pressure to be the good girl, the good mother, the good wife, the one who colours within the lines so that everyone else is happy. I put this look together because I felt I had to be a good SL fashion blogger, had to meet our standards: new items photographed well on an attractive model who looks happy. (Or should I say looks like a good girl?) Meanwhile, my av was actually stalking the grid in “boyfriend jeans,” Burley’s asymmetric, half-shaved Hans hair, and a freebie t-shirt that turns a famous product logo into “Cock.” I did photo that look, but between the oldness of the items, the dullness of the photo, and the bad attitude of my ugly av, I couldn’t see my way clear to running the image. I even took it out of my Flickr feed because I had a vague memory of some copybotting accusations about the tee.
Don’t take what I’ve written to mean that I don’t like the pieces that go into this ensemble. I think they’re scrummy. (In fact, the combo of lemon, lime, orange and strawberry makes me think of the original flavour LifeSavers.) It’s just that these days, a Cock t-shirt and a dud photo feel like a balm for the weird funk I slid into on International Women’s Day to Witness Stupidly Sexist “Celebrations” of Women.
