Life, Is It Just a Box of Cereal?
Live life to the fullest, for the future is scarce. ~ Nick Carter
Fowl Feathered Friends
Okay, I can’t help it. I love feathers and I love creative fashion. It’s one of the reasons me working for *SoliDea FoliEs* is such a good fit. Mila Tatham designs very creatively. But there are a lot of these truly creative designers out there. One of the others brands I simply can’t live without is Faint Paulse’s Ladies Who Lunch. I started playing with this outfit Saturday, but it was such a nightmare in SL getting anything to attach I finally said “uncle” and left. I think today was a little better, and I hope you like. I am keeping with the low velocity one more day, so Draakje? short and sweet, so there!

Low-velocity weekend. Recovering from last night? Perhaps. Wanted to finish up the Spring 2013 trends blogs, so here it is. If you remember from my first blog of springs trends I showed some high contrast black and white prints. Those are still in style but if those Rorschach-esque digital prints are too over the top for your style, stripes might be right up your alley. Make the statement big and bold but at the same time uncomplicated. With denim, they’re all-American; with navy, they’re nautical-chic; and worn head-to-toe, they’re just plain cool. Bonus: You’ll definitely be able to wear them for seasons—even years—to come, because this is a style that always seems to come back into style.
Bag: Handverk, Leather Feather
Jewelry: Mandala, Onigiri necklace and Hokusai watch
Hairs: Boon, WMO003
Shirt: Maitreya, Rib Tank
Skirt: Baiastice, Mesh maxi
Hat: Baiastice, Huge Brim Hat
Life is much more successfully looked at from a single window ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
Time-honored and fashionista-approved, luxe leather pieces in refreshed shades are a strong style for Spring 2013. More tomorrow.
Since I previously used the quote, “I hope she’ll be a fool — that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” you can probably tell I am enamored with F. Scott Fitzgerald and more specifically, The Great Gatsby. So you can imagine my excitement they’ve remade the movie, I just hope it follows the book closely. There are so many meaningful quotes meandering through this novel, each time I read it I learn something more about myself. I’ve probably passed the title quote by on numerous occasions without thought but this time, I did stop and F.Scott is wise and on the mark. Many times we do judge others by our own personal experience, how can we not? We are the best authority on what we have seen, felt, done and oft these prior markers shadow the bigger picture, creating previously unrealized bigotry’s towards others who are different. One only has to use the example of the topic of gay marriage to know both sides are strong in their arguments and seldom stop to see the others view.
After fall 2012’s whirlwind of brocade, fur, and embellishment, it’s no surprise to see influences everywhere from India and the Middle East to Russia, the beautyful beading should make for some seriously stunning evening wear this Spring.
Don’t get me wrong, I realize its easier to look at life through a single window, ours, but I wonder if its as effective or productive? Should we make “fast-food” assumptions when it comes to how we view other people? I hope not. After all, compassion, love and empathy only come when we have the ability to put our feet soundly in the shoes of the other person. It just makes no sense to label people based on our experience, we don’t know how they got to where they are and their journey in life is seldom the same as our own, if it is, well then it’s just an “us” versus “them” mentality, so what may seem the only solution to the us may have a unique completely different outcome to the them.
Take from, sure, I’m a Cao, it’s what I do. Look out a window, then walk to the other side of the room and look out a different window. Open your eyes, and look around, there is so many different colors to see. Even in white and black, there are numerous shades. People are the same way, each of our life experiences uniquely effect our vision, our ability to interpret what we see. It is important to remember there is never necessarily a right and a wrong response, so if we are passing judgement it behooves us to remove our own experience and prejudices from the equation prior to making any decision that involves another human being. A little high-gravity sure, but then sometimes the most important things are.
