I should probably take this look off sometime soon, since I've been walking around the grid like this forever, but I am kind of in love with it so I'll keep it on for a bit more.
I love the coziness of the shawl plus parka versus the amazing elaborated headpiece.

...and, yes, my avatar probably smells, so what?

Do you remember "The Little Prince"? When I saw this scarf I remembered one of my favorite excerpts from the book.

"One only understands the things that one tames," said the fox. "Men have no more time to understand anything. They buy things all ready made at the shops. But there is no shop anywhere where one can buy friendship, and so men have no friends any more. If you want a friend, tame me . . ."
"What must I do, to tame you?" asked the little prince.
"You must be very patient," replied the fox. "First you will sit down at a little distance from me--like that--in the grass. I shall look at you out of the corner of my eye, and you will say nothing. Words are the source of misunderstandings. But you will sit a little closer to me, every day . . ."
"Men have forgotten this truth," said the fox. "But you must not forget it. You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed."

"Les hommes ont oublié cette vérité", dit le renard. "Mais tu ne dois pas l’oublier. Tu deviens responsable pour toujours de ce que tu as apprivoisé."
{Antoine de Saint Exupéry}

Task complete! This is my very first "total look" (well, almost...I know, I cheated) .
I love to mix and match, but I kind of got challenged to mix and match within the same collection, something I've never tried before.
Sissy Pessoa (thank you!!) got me running frantic around her shop, zooming between her clients for a few days - I humbly apologize to all the people I bumped into-. So I started form the studded, feathered, shoulder pads and went on from there...then, at a certain point, I had to stop before adding prims even to my nostrils.

Also, another of my favorite places on SL: the Atonment club at Insilico, never really been there for the club part, but I love the concept of the place and it' amazingly well built. I've been waiting for a while to put together an outfit that matched the mood of the place.

As probably everyone might have noticed by now, yesterday was the first day of the current Seasons Hunt.
Which is full of amazing prizes.
Really what I just wanted to tell is that I stole the idea of wearing a pipe to Bliss Janus and I spent way too much time watching other avatars around me instead of searching for the snowmans, so I got maybe a third of the hunt done, but people watching was really interesting!
