Dark Mouse

Lavender dream

Quite a few people blogged this lovely cardigan when it appeared at the Vintage Fair, and I like a lot about it, including the lacey frill, the dangling ribbons (which hang beautifully, and come in several shades) and the muted colours. I matched it up with some old favourites (the skirt, undershirt and boots) and a couple of new items from the latest colabor88. These are the icicle necklace and earrings from Earthstones and the pretty hair from Clawtooth. Unfortunately the swoop of the hair means you can’t actually see the earrings, but they have the same pendant as the necklace 😉
The poses are also from calabor88, by Marukin.

Poses by Tea Soup

Bronze is the latest in Luna Jubilee’s 52 weeks of colour challenge, and it is a nice autumn colour, so I took some of the pictures outdoors. My outfit got hippier and hippier, but the bag is the only thing I bought specially, it has really cute details. I got the mixx feather hair ornaments absolutely ages ago, but this is the first time I’ve really felt they worked nicely, in with the Tasmine loosely braided hair.

Elephant pose prop by Magnifique Poses

It’s mauve for the 52 weeks of colour challenge, and I think I’m nearer to the weekly colour than I was with Mahogany (which looked close enough on the computer I usually use with SL, but not when I looked at it on another one afterwards, oh well). I do sometimes venture into purple and lilac instead of blue hair, and this is a very pretty colour, though I’m not sure why it’s called “granny”.

Jade, elephant
This elephant pose prop from Magnifique (99 Linden and it has 5 poses, and the elephant is just 9 or 10 prims) came just as I was lacking inspiration for how to show off the jade outfit I’d put together. I had something frothier in mind for jade, but when I rediscovered this silk top, I remembered how much I liked it. I also had to wear something more from the soon-to-go Eolande’s, these colour change jade bangles have been one of my staples.
Indian summer tunic in green: Mashooka
Vintage flower skirt in green: Couverture (think it was a group gift)
