Goodwill to All

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. ~ Charles Dickens

One of my favorite fantasies about Christmas comes from long romantic novels I read like Cecilia by Fanny Burney (yes, I read the whole thing.. ack) or Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen or even Downton Abbey. The ladies dress in their finest, attend a winter ball in which they are whisked into an exceedingly warm room of dancers and high intrigue and waltzed around the room by handsome gentlemen of means, all jockeying for their favor. And they do this through the “season” of parties and balls. Everyone speaks in charming, euphemistic language, fans are fluttered, and hearts are joined and broken.

So when I see an old fashioned tree like this from Tobias Convair (and yes, I know it has electric lights on it from Tya Fallingbridge—don’t be pedantic about my fantasy here), I want to put on a ball gown and ready myself for the ball. In this case I wear Mami Jewell’s newest gown, which she made for Anjelica Carling, the 2014 Miss Virtual World. With a sparkling texture across the  bodice and in the flexi prims, the dress is a picture of sparkling holiday beauty, especially paired with Maxi Gossamer’s sparkling jewelry from Fameshed.

The beauty of this look comes from Rocketta Haven’s newest skin. With a unique beauty that is Rocketta’s own, espeically the full pouty lips that go beyond the usual beestung look ad the lined eyes, the skin harkens back to an old-fashioned beauty. Paired with Silverr Andel’s eyes and Mirja Mill’s latest hair, a vintage wavy ‘do, our heroine has a touch of tragedy and romance to her look.

“I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
