Reflections On Winter

So I’ve been far too busy for a proper LOTD, but I did pull together my favorite simple outfit – an amazingly textured coat (and I do mean amazing) and sexy hot boots. The results, I’m sure you’ll find, were rather nice if I do say so myself.

I liked this picture so much I put it in the ColdLogic photo contest. It’s not great, it’s not polished even really styled compared to any of the other applicants is sophomoric and more of a little girl playing in the grown up pool, but I don’t really care. I like it for what it is.

I’ve always been fascinated with winter, growing up in a place where winter means putting on a flannel shirt during the day and turning on a bedside heater on the coldest nights means that I’ve always had a very romanticized view of winter. Snow covered trees, log cabins with roaring fires, snowball fights and ruddy faced children… you know, the whole 9 yards. One of the things I love in Second Life is I can experience that idyllic winter wonderland without the intrusion of real life and it’s slush and shoveling and frostbite.
