Whenever I garb myself in something dark and sweet like this Bare Rose dress, it makes me think of William Blake and his meditation upon how pretty things inevitably decay.
O Rose, thou art sick!
The Invisible worm,
That flies in the night,
In the howling storm,
Has found out thy bed
Of Crimson joy;
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.
But there's no decay in Second Life! Just larger and larger inventories!
Someone at Bare Rose must be procrastinating their work just like me, because there's always something new and pretty to see, and they create about as much as I've been posting lately. :p
I thought the dress went nicely with one of Rosemary Galbraith's elegant new skins in my favorite makeup (watch for her store opening in Popfuzz!), and with Philotic Energy's new Deschanel hair.
