Color of the Year: Marsala

marsala1

Every year Pantone selects a color of the year. This year it’s Marsala, which is a nice warm wine color with hints of purple. I’m very fond of this color, so I thought I’d do an outfit with a few pieces of Marsala colored things.

The skirt from Blueberry is a little bit shorter than I normally wear, but I love the color and the strap so much I had to get it anyway. Besides, with the new update of the Physique body, I had to show off my legs. You can get the new update by clicking Slink’s redelivery terminal at the mainstore. While you’re at it, get the new feet, hands and visage head too, if you have them.

The new hands and feet have the ability to apply nail polish on each individual nail, which mean you can do accent nails like I’ve done here. Or you can go full crazy and have a different nail color on each finger. Rainbow nails anyone?

Cotton Candy Feeling

I felt like doing something completely different today. I tossed my red hair and red lips and went for lavender instead. I very seldom take of my “signature” pieces, but sometimes you just have to let go.

The inspiration for this look comes from the gorgeous ombre shoes from Glamistry. Tomorrow is 21st which means it’s time for another round of 21Shoe. You get these lavender/pink shoes and a creme/bronze ombre for the price of one, tomorrow only.

Gallery Hop

galleryhop1

Today I went Gallery hopping at Purple Crayons. Several really talented SL photographers have showrooms there and the sim itself is quite suitable for photography. You’re allowed to rezz, which is very rare, but so appreciated. The return timer is 30 minutes, so ample time to get your pictures done.

I’m wearing more things from the depths of my inventory. Like this blazer from Erratic which I got a long time ago, but it’s so high quality, I frequently break it out for outfits. I paired it with some new shorts from Le Primitif, available now at Kustom 9. And the thing I got most excited about this week, Butch tanktops from Sn@tch is out now with appliers. It’s this weeks Sn@tch & Grab, so go get them while it’s cheap.

I felt like doing a casual outfit today. I feel good, I feel happy. My horrible neighbor finally moved out. Life is good today. I can kick back and watch TV without the backdrop of extremely loud electronic music.

 

I picked up these pants from Redgrave a while ago, I think it was faMESHed in December. But that’s the story of my life, I shop and shop and maybe one third of it actually makes it to blogposts. The rest I forget. Until I attempt to organize or clean my inventory and it pops back up. I decided to pair them with the new Aster heels from Glamistry.

Here comes the rain again

I must admit the writing inspiration is lacking today. Some days I just don’t know what to say. Thankfully the fashion inspiration is not lacking at all. I bought this jacket and shirt combo the other day from Kitja Cherie and spent yesterday roaming around looking for the perfect pieces to go with. The shoes from Co57 felt like a given when I saw them.

To complete the look I picked up these very shiny leggings from Hucci. I actually didn’t realize how shiny they were until I put them on, but I like it. Especially around the derriere part. I’ve gotten several compliments on it today.

Show me how you Burlesque

burlesque

For those of you living under the proverbial rock, you might’ve missed that there’s a sexy event going on right now. Burlesque is exactly what it sounds like, filled with wondrous sexy burlesque themed things.

I picked up this very nice poseprop from oOo Studios. It’s this lovely little lightbox with several poses in it. I also decided on a lingerie set from MAAI to show you. It comes in Omega and Physique appliers in 8 different varieties. Wit and without bra, panties and stockings in all combinations. You can make this as sexy as you’d like which is always a plus.

Some days you just want to watch the world burn

goth

To paraphrase Alfred form the Dark Knight. Some day you just want to see the world burn. Yesterday was one of those days for me. I don’t know what happened, suddenly I was just in a horrific mood, everything and everyone was annoying and I damn near threw my phone in the wall because of a Facebook post. Yeah, I know, very dramatic. And so unnecessary. Normally I don’t spend that much time dwelling on the negative, but it seems at a certain point, it all has to come out in one explosive burst.

The outfit for the day was very fitting then. Some sort of Gothic Femme Fatale look to display on the outside what I felt on the inside. I bought this dress from Maitreya a long time ago and the other day while rage deleting cleaning my inventory, I found it again. I feel much better today though, so don’t get used to this gloomy look!

May the odds be ever in your favor

effietrinket

New week and new Monday Meme by the ever so lovely Strawberry Singh. This time she urges us to dress up as a movie character. My first thought was Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games but it just felt too easy. I wanted a proper challenge. So I opted for Effie Trinket from the same movie.

I had a couple frustrating hours trying to find something, anything avantagard enough for Effie. Then I found this lovely cocktail dress aptly named Capitol Cocktail from Dead Dollz and it was pretty much smooth sailing from there.

I love Effie. I love how positively out of place she is in the Districts, how she almost always keeps a smile and a positive outlook, even though the people around her makes her grind her teeth. And I love her progression from absolutely clueless to the workings of the world, to the sensitive and understanding woman she becomes.

Effie today, Effie tomorrow, Effie Forever.

Kickin’ ass and takin’ names

asskick

I saw this top on Flickr and decided that I had to have it. It’s not exactly my usual kind of fashion, but it was just too awesome to pass up. So I made my way down to pixicat and got the top. Then I saw these pants. And well, the rest just sort of followed. I took the pics at The Wastelands, which is some great looking post apocalyptic RP sims. Definitely worth the visit.

I felt like with this kickass outfit I need some ink and steel. I found some great tattoos at Letis that had Physique appliers. Both tattoos have right and left arm options and you can apply them individually so you can have two different arm tattoos, something you can not do with the default avatar body. I’m also slightly in love with this finger claw thingie from Random Matter.

Peaches

You know, I took these photos ten days ago. Edited them. Then promptly forgot about them. A bit of a scatterbrain sometimes, for sure.

Please don’t kill me when I say this but… I’m not a big fan of unicorns. I know, I know, put down your pitchforks. So this round of Collabor 88 wasn’t a big hit for me. But I did pick up a few things, because well, I have a problem. A shopping problem. I beelined for the shoes from Fri.day, because Hello Hot Heels! Then I decided to build the outfit around the heels, so I picked up a couple of items from The Secret Store too. A house may have slunk in my cart as well.
