Yesterday I met a friend for lemon ice, a friend from SL who I had never met face-to-face before. I knew about his family, his boat, his car, his politics (*sigh*) and because we live close enough, he promised once to treat me to lemon ice. It was a dare as much as an invitation. I, being brash as I am, insisted on a glass of wine. (“After all, I bought you your first shoes.” I did. Kalnins. He loved them.) He brought me a bottle of sweet German wine. We have made a friendship. He has given me good words, wise counsel and kind appraisals. That old phrase to remember that there is a real person behind the avatar could never be more true. He is genuine. So this is dedicated to him.
What is being dedicated? Well this beautiful look, courtesy of Quennye Quinnell. See I met him when I went out dancing and he had a fiercely newbie look but a cool name. So I danced with him, found out he was a genuine gentleman who desperately needed good footwear. This dress many have been like what I wore. With its beautiful lace prims and sexy system pieces, it’s demure and alluring all at once. I like how Quennye mixed the lace with the satin on the gown. And this dress is for dancing. It moves with grace, swirling around your legs.
I pair it with a lovely pale skin from Helyanwe Vindaloo that I have shown before. It’s truly a “blonde” skin with its pale features. The eyeliner dresses up the skin for going out. My hair is one of Kavar Cleanslate’s newest—an updo but this time not in my usual Chardonnay. (Will miracles ever cease?) And I wear a vintage bracelet from Tigerlily Koi, who truly is one of the nicest ladies on the grid.
“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swaps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.” ~ Ayn Rand
