When I spotted AntoniaXP ´s newest creation for Countdown (her brand), I loved the red double breasted coat in red.
What never occurred to me was that for some unexpected reason, the coat made me feel like going back to my roots.
Ehrmmmm yes, you guessed right; my red roots that is.
You see, even though I am a blond now, when I first came to SL I was a redhead and now I can´t remember the reason why I changed.
In RL my hair has naturally fluctuated since childhood from – hahaha- bald , to blonde, to strawberry blonde – almost flaming red – to summer blonde, to dirty ash blond, and just very recently to a very dark brown/reddish blonde. My father always calling me the ¨redhead¨. The reason for the fluctuation? … no idea … if you do know please let me know.
Anyway, you see, our RL last name means ¨red¨ and this color appears even in those of us who are brunette in our family in the form of, you guessed it, read beards or blonde reddish hairs.
Could it be that I never really accepted the fact that I was really a readhead in RL; with my natural hair color being in the middle of blond and red ?
May be so. Anyway this coat is sure to bring out the Redhead in all of us !
In he meantime I honor my (and yours) Irish … roots 😀
Until next time,

Till you’ve had your tires rotated
