I too am a pattern

Kiki's Closet is a little too nifty. My freebie hat led to a skirt purchase and a belt purchase and another hat purchase and ... *cough*

The skirt is rather short. I don't usually wear arse-skirts in SL (my avatar has some kind of Freudian body issues from her Victorian enculturation, I'm sure), but the belts on this one were far too cute to pass up. Belts in general are fascinating me today, partly because they look neat and tidy and uniform-esque, which is the opposite of, you know, mom-of-toddler.

The bound-up quality of these multiple belts reminds me of Amy Lowell's poem Patterns:

Not a softness anywhere about me,
Only whalebone and brocade.
And I sink on a seat in the shade...
