*sigh* Nerves. I'm presenting at this conference in an hour! Immediately after that I try to make my flight. Silly airplanes - ! United is routing me through CHICAGO on my way to Atlanta. Yep -- San Antonio, CHICAGO, Atlanta. Grr. I'll be home by 2 AM...if I'm lucky.
To calm my pre-presentation nerves I decided to dress up in MichaMi's adorable little business frock. I saw the advert and was immediately drawn to a few cute details -- the ruched armwarmers, the natural-waist belt, the corset beneath the jacket. The jacket and corset come on many layers, and the prim skirt makes me look curvy but not overly exagerated. Go prim skirt go!
I'm wearing it with Cordovan boots from Five Minutes After -- same vaguely purple-hued grey-black, if you can believe it. Rare color to match, eh? I'm also wearing it with a Redgrave skin, which makes me feel like a real teacher. The fluffy-hatted hair is from Shop Seu, and I had to pause to remember whether or not it's still being sold in-world. I have a guilty suspicion it was a hunt gift of some sort, and if so, I apologize -- I'll have my brain back on again if I ever get home.
See you in Chicago for a few hours! Hopefully life's back to normal tomorrow...Now off I go to present on Second Life machinima and teaching Shakespeare!
