Say a Little Prayer

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a little prayer for you
While combing my hair, now,
And wondering what dress to wear, now,
I say a little prayer for you

Say a Little Prayer

Whenever I hear the song “Say a Little Prayer,” I think about the woman in the song—a pretty young Marlo Thomas type (even though it’s always an African-American woman singing it.. hmm) with white Mary Jane platform heels and a jar of bobby pins on her dresser and nylons hanging to dry in her little apartment. But who is she saying a prayer for and where is he? She goes off to work on the bus, has a coffee break, and says a prayer for him. He’s on her mind. Considering the song came out in 1967, I am guessing he is away at war. Of course, Burt Bacharach wrote the song—he was the master of catching the zeitgeist of his age and rolling it into a catchy pop tune.

This outfit really has nothing to do with the song except I was hearing Aretha Franklin singing it when I took the photos, and the kind of retro jacket from monica Outlander with its big buttons and oversized Peter Pan-shaped collar and my little plaid mini skirt from Anyusha Lilienthal seem a little 60s. (Now the front cut up to there on the jacket, the drawstring waist on the skirt and the decidedly 2010s technology of sculpties is hardly 60s. Come to think of it, remember when polyester was the new space age material in the 60s. I consider sculpties our polyester—wait until meshes come. We’re gonna seem so old fashioned!)

Say a Little Prayer

I have donned one of Tuli Asturias’ revised Eva skins. It seems she has extracted the lip colors and cleavages to put them on a tattoo layer to match the tattoo layer technology of SL. I have also tried on one of her simple eyeliners, sold for a reasonable price. If you’re going to wear her skins, might as well grab the tattoo layers.

Say a Little Prayer

My darling believe me,
For me there is no one
But you.

~ “Say a Little Prayer” as sung by Aretha Franklin.
