Snap, snap!

I put on this dress. Then I purchased three hats for it and instantly looked like Julia Roberts at the races in Pretty Woman. ...Okay, no hats. Hats back off, I realized that the secret to making this frothy Spring dress look like me is to pretend I am wearing it for the Fall. Black gloves, black boots, black hair...ahhh, I'm a rockabilly teen raiding mommy's closet for the high school semiformal.

I'd like to take a moment and say that the people over at Shopping Sherpa and Fab Free and SL Free*Style are always my fashion inspirations. I spotted Creamy in a Shop Seu hair today and ferreted out my own; and I've been loving the links over to various dollarbie shops in Japanese locales. Thank you, freebie people! You make the fake world larger!

My child's in the bath, which means that she's drinking dirty, soapy bath-water while I dash off this entry, so please forgive the lack of poetry. Or wait, let's see, Mr. Rogers was just on...

It's such a good feeling to know you're alive.
It's such a happy feeling
You're growing inside.
And when you wake up ready to say
I think I'll make a snappy new day!

...To all the tired parents out there, it's almost their bedtime! Then we can wake up from our parental selves and play!

And the last /artilleri/ skin is Emi - Cream - Violet
