Rock N Roll High School

Rock'n'Roll High School

Well I don’t care about history
Rock, rock, rock’n’roll high school
‘Cause that’s not where I wanna be
Rock, rock, rock’n’roll high school
I just wanna have some kicks
I just wanna get some chicks
Rock, rock, rock, rock, rock’n’roll high school

~ “Rock’n’Roll High School” by the Ramones

Rock'n'Roll High School

A couple times a week I go over to the high school for water aerobics and when I am done, I walk through the halls and I am so amazed and excited to see the variety of looks and styles the kids have. And no one walks around with duck lips. None of the kids dress like this but I do remember “Rock’n’Roll High School” and how revolutionary it was at the time, so I made this look in tribute. Start with my guitar from Christel Morane and my lunchbox from xOLanaxO Serenity at the Luck of Irish Gacha Fair (had to sneak that lunchbox in again). Then add more glasses from Boyd Krastins for a more academic look and one of Sasy Scarborough’s new nail appliers from My Attic.

Ivy Burner has a few of these exclusive corsets left at her store—this is a limited edition and I am not sure why they weren’t gone immediately because it’s a gorgeous piece of mesh and texturing work. I topped Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus’ new sexy zipper pants that come with their amazing texture-change HUD (with a variety of amazing textures—these pants will be seen again and again). And oh my, look at that tush. Paul does the best ass in SL, bar none. And Circe Ishtari has put out these amazingly sexy next boots!

The whole impetus for the look was, of course, Kavar Cleanslate’s hair band hair, which he is featuring at My Attic. I think Kavar and I went to rock’n’roll high school together because the sight of this hair made me laugh and then drift back into reminiscing (during which I sang that “Reminiscing” song from the Little River Band from my childhood and then I went to find my old black Phil Collins concert t-shirt and it turned into something schmaltzy I can’t share here and then realized with horror that this is all considered “retro” now). I donned Ava Grau’s gorgeous new skin from Skin Fair, which I will be showing again, of course, because I layered on Madrid Solo’s deep cherry lips and one of the free eyeliners Nena Janus offers at Skin Fair. Thank you, Kavar, for making my week!

Raking Leaves

Raking Leaves

Here by the baring bough
Raking up leaves,
Often I ponder how
Springtime deceives,–
I, an old woman now,
Raking up leaves.
~ Thomas Hardy

Raking Leaves

The hour has been added back to our days and now the days grow dark quickly where I live. I spent the afternoon in the rare sunshine (it’s been raining a lot), raking up the birch tree leaves that have fallen in my front and back yard. I got what I fear is one of my last bike rides in for the season and dumped the gangly tomato plant at the curb. The herbs are safely inside, sunning in the kitchen window. The hibiscus is unhappily standing in my office (not sure I can get it through the winter—probably not).

A warm sweater is what is needed now—and this long sweater dress from Angelina Eizenberg does the trick. I love the colors stitched into the sweater, the big cowl neck and how it covers my bum, which gets cold outside. Of course, I can’t give up my capris just yet, so these darling short jeans from Siddean Munro (she doesn’t just do feet, folks!) are the ticket. Rustic boots with a handy color-change HUD from Tash Porthos keep my feet warm and cute too.

Shyla Diggs and Tricky Boucher have just released a new skin—Nina. It’s become the reigning principal among the top skin makers that makeups and a variety of looks is the way to keep things going and Shyla’s keeping up with the best of them. Of course we have again the subtle makeups, the beautiful eyes and brows and the gentle blush. And underneath the big sweater, there is a gorgeous body, of course. Truth Hawks made my casual and cute ponytails—much less little girl than just easy wearing.
