“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.”
–Victor Hugo, Les Miserables
Yes, yes, I know it’s March, and we are supposed to write about Spring. But here at Chez Silverdragon, in RL, it’s 16° F outside on this March morning. So this cozy sweater that Ascend is offering at The Man Cave shopping event this month resonated with me.
As one who identifies with dragons — hence my name — I am partial to the Draco skins by Alia Baroque of Fallen Gods. I have several colors in this skin, and loved the new Opal color released in January, an ethereal mix with highlights of cyan and lilac. I have been eager to photograph it.
However when I wore the accessories that were included with the skin, I struggled with some confusion. Lacy wings, delicate flower petals, graceful butterflies… and… dragon scales?!? It seems incongruous; “delicate” is not a word often used in connection with dragons.
I am loving this big fat oversized sweater from Gabriel. With the coordinating muffler, it makes me feel warm and toasty even when I’m out ice skating on snowbound Seeking Wisdom.
Readers of this blog will know that I have said, “I will wear a mesh head when I find one that suits me. Hasn’t happened yet.”
Well, it finally happened!
When I was young, I worked on a ranch. This outfit is still one of my favorites because it is something I would have worn in those days. My senses conjure up memories of sweet hay, softly nickering horses, dusty dry roads and the golden sheen of sun-baked hills.
Autumn is my favorite season. It has an air of mystery, and teases us about upcoming holidays. I love the colors and the playfulness. And I get to wear sweaters!
In RL, a lot of guys don’t like wearing suits; they find them uncomfortably formal. But consider this, in case you didn’t know it: a lot of women are attracted to guys with the savvy and self-confidence to be at home in a good suit. When you know you look good, your positive self image makes you happier, not to mention more appealing. So we are in search of the best suits in SL. This week: the elegant new Hart suit by Deadwool.
