Good lord. “Day off” is such a misleading term. Sure, I have a day off, mostly, from the ongoing Jewelry & Accessory Expo, but it means I get to spend the day catching up on everything else. Like blogging POE, re-writing a couple of articles for the third time… etc etc.
I’m not sure if some of you had the misfortune of hearing me rant about what happened, but my computer crashed one night… just a seemingly ‘normal’ random shut-off (as normal as one of those can be, anyway)… but in doing so, it was like it system restored to a couple weeks prior… so I lost a lot of photos I’d done, a lot of things I’d written. It was a mess.
Long story short, I never got any of it back. Oh, the joys of moving!
Anyway… here is today’s photo for POE…
I’ve had this outfit saved FOREVER… and I’ve REALLY wanted to blog it. Of course, as I’m sure you’ve seen, I’ve not really been able to blog much of anything lately. So I promise, this one was totally at the top of my list, right underneath that gorgeous Romance Couture dress from my last post. (Gah! I STILL can’t get over that dress. I’m still looking for an excuse to wear it in public. Lol.)
The ironic part of this outfit… I’m not sure if you can see it, but the Bubblez dress comes with these almost translucent wings… so it’s an angel dress. I put this outfit together right after a rather controversial open discussion on Brats in the Lifestyle… and I could feel a few peoples’ “judgey faces” looking at me… like such a “typical” brat thing, to come to this discussion dressed as a ‘perfect angel’ when everyone and their brother knows I’m one of those playful bratty types. There was totally a “how dare you” vibe from a couple of the more-judgmental people in the room. (Thank god it was none of the regular members of the sim. The open-mindedness from the regular, core membership is part of what keeps me at this place. It’s amazing.)
Anyway, I hadn’t even thought about it. While it’s TOTALLY something I would do as a conscious decision, I hadn’t even thought about the fact that I was going to a discussion that was certainly going to ruffle some feathers, dressed as the epitome of a brat. It was… interesting. Overall, the discussion was great, aside from a couple close-minded people beating a dead horse. But for the most part, everyone got along ok. A couple people made comments that made me cry. And the true nature of the “Brat Pack” was outed to the community… a group that gets together to provide service to the community… not to wreak havoc.
I’ve got a couple more POE outfits pre-saved that I’m going to try and photograph, edit, and get put up… sometime in the near future. I hope.
