I went to the Farmer’s Market today to pick up some fresh fruits and vegetables. The strawberries were so plump and juicy that I sat down to eat a few before I went back home. Mmmm….closing my eyes and inhaling the fresh scents around me before taking a bite.
I’ve gone back to my Lelutka Chloe head. I gave the Genus Classic a good solid tryout and I just couldn’t love it. It has great potential but the HUD just can’t compare to Lelutka’s. The Genus head appliers are also a bit sluggish and the HUD layout isn’t quite as logical. I also really like the Lelutka expressions better.
I decided to go for a skin change. I’m still on the hunt but this one called Maria by ItGirls appealed to me. My one complaint so far is that there isn’t a way to have the skin without a hair base. That small change would be a huge improvement!
I should be unpacking my Friday and Saturday sale purchases as well as everything I got from the two hunts I did this week, but as usual, I got distracted by a sale ad and wandered off to !gO!. I hadn’t been in this store for about three years and was delighted by some of the things I saw. This dress is the current group gift.
Sylvi of b[ELLE] sent me another version of her bellbottom/top outfit and I thought “Whew! I can get a second chance at doing a promo shot!”. Reminder to self– never ever try to do a photo and post when I’m tired, short on time or hungry. That day I was all three!
Notice the flowers on the pants–they almost shimmer in the light. Gorgeous!
My friend Sylvi has a new GORGEOUS goth style gown in her store. It comes with a 6 option base color HUD. The gown is covered in delicate black lace with exquisite edging on the hem. I just had to show it off in my favorite color–Emerald!
“We should indeed keep calm in the face of difference, and live our lives in a state of inclusion and wonder at the diversity of humanity.”
I got an invitation to a party. The dress code said “Rainbow”.
Initally, I was a bit taken aback. I have very little in my wardrobe that is rainbow hued. I’ve been a bit afraid to wear rainbows, as I am straight. To me, it felt like appropriating the dress of another culture without permission.
But tonight, I was asked to be a rainbow. And I thought hard about what that means to me. It means standing up for what is right. It means supporting my LGBTQ friends. It means standing in the light of the rainbow, arm in arm with those I love in both worlds. It means I KNOW that diversity is what makes the world a better place to live in, and speaking out about my beliefs is the right thing to do.
