It's a dark and stormy morning...
Literally and figuratively. The weather is cold, wind-driven rain; but it is also sadly my last full day as Elise. I've once again arranged to work at home, and have decided to wear something both cozy and feminine today: a red cashmere sweater, my black pencil skirt, and these amazing plaid tights that are a funky combination of sheer and opaque.
I watched the James Bond movie "Casino Royale" again last night and I realized how much I've always wanted to be - not James Bond - but a "Bond girl": sexy, confident, intriguing, well-dressed & well-traveled. And it made me wonder: since this is all a fantasy, who would Elise be?
Elise was born in a small town in the Italian Alps, near the border with France. Her family spent a lot of time skiing, hiking, and biking in the mountains, as well as traveling to many of the other countries in Europe. She developed a passion for music and art and fashion, and had become an intoxicating combination of tomboy and glamour girl, easily transitioning from ski boots to high heels, or bike shorts to a cocktail dress. Needless to say, she had many of the boys in her town chasing after her as she blossomed into a tall, long-legged, brunette beauty. She moved to the United States for college and, after graduating with honors, she opened her own architecture and design firm. She gained a new group of admirers that were attracted to her pretty face, gorgeous figure, confidence, intelligence, and interesting life story. Elise still believes in the old-fashioned notions of romance and being treated like a lady, but will be a very bad girl with any gentleman that takes the time to properly charm and seduce her.
Can you tell I spent quite a bit of time thinking about this? Have I gone "off my rocker"?? Anyway, here are a few caps from some friends at Rachel's Haven that did a fabulous job capping Elise.
So what's your story? Do have any interesting things from your life to share?
