Of bare and clothed bottoms

For about an hour my daughter and I tried an experiment. I said that she could walk around the house bare-bottomed IF she used the potty...This experiment lasted until she wet herself. Now she's back in a diaper. *Sigh.* This potty training thing really blows, for all of us. I'm trying to take comfort in the fact that there are very few adults who aren't potty trained.

Speaking of covering one's bottom, It's high time that I spent some time paying homage to Terry Lightfoot's gowns.

Tiara Thibedeau in Domino Noir

Who uses some of the finest fabric in all of Caledon? Terry Lightfoot, of course. One of my first purchases in Second Life was her Oiseau Chinoisie gown (depicted at the top of the post, in Terry's shop). It's been a perennial favorite, and has survived many a wardrobe sorting. I still wear it, because when I have it on I feel like the daughter of an East Indian Company merchant...

I photographed myself more formally in a new release, the red brocade Wednesday's Valentine Wish. It's got everything a girl could want in an Edwardian frock, including many shirt and skirt options, frills, ruffles, gorgeous fabric, and this fabulously formidable hat. No really, look at that thing. There are BIRDS up there! (I should also mention that I'm wearing the newest hair release from -Hiccup, "Fashionably Strung Out." I love how Tilly photographs her hair in such a rockabilly way, and yet it's perfect for an unconventional Victorian lass too...)

While shopping, I encountered miss Tiara Thibedeau in Terry's Domino Noir dress. She looked so pretty that I had to photograph her.
