Blond unlike me

I admit to you guys that I totally stalk Milla Michinaga. We're sort of opposites. She's a blond, I'm a (blackhead?). She's tall and elegant, I'm short and quirky. She's got her finger on the pulse of all kinds of fashion, whereas I tend to stare into the strange abyss within when I put together my outfits.

But whenever I look at Milla, I always think of this quote from Raymond Chandler:

"It was a blonde. A blonde to make a bishop kick a hole in a stained-glass window."

What intrinsic quality makes Milla a blond, and myself a brunette, when we both have all the options of SL open to us? I mean, why am I not sporting green hair, and Milla purple? The answer has to lie somewhere in the strange interplay of personality, RL and SL. But today, my outfit is inspired by Milla, mostly because these boots are tall and elegant like she is.

Also, news flash: ~silentsparrow~ is having an excellent sale on the third floor of the main shop. Go get stuff before the outfits are permanently retired!
