Fishy Strawberry

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.

Wenge (for the 52 weeks of colour challenge) was a colour I couldn’t get very excited about. Brown is just not something I go for in SL. I wish I’d had Rudhmellowen’s idea of being a tree which is a lot more fun. In fact I was so ho hum about Wenge that although I took my Wenge pictures last week, I only suddenly today remembered I hadn’t actually blogged them.
However, I did like this outfit in the end, probably because it is pretty wenge-lite. I think that the cardi definitely has wenge in it, and the Tres Blah undershirt is wenge (although you can’t see much of it). Also I detect wenge in the bunny-skull head. I’m a fan of Zeery’s scarves, by the way, they seem to be made for my size of avi.
Next week is mulberry, yipee, I love that colour, no wenging about that.

4th Rez Day outfit
I’m 4 today! So I celebrated by buying new stuff, mostly at the Culture Shock event (some items include donations to charity), which I managed to get into after trying all day. The map of booths is here: I was rather pleased how the lace on the skirt exactly matched the lace on the sweater: the lace on the vest is a bit too white, but I think it goes ok. This is a lovely romantic skirt, with one panel that floats in the breeze, and it is available in dark colours as well as light.

A bit late with periwinkle in the 52 weeks of colour challenge – the fan on my laptop died last week and I haven’t been able to get to a computer that had good graphics for SL til now ;-((
The only good thing is that I was able to use these 60Linden Saturday slippers. The crown and slippers are in honour of the royal wedding yesterday 😉

On the phone
Two pretty new items (the Tiffany top and special colour Aragon skirt) gave me an excuse to haul out the old favourite shoes, top and hair. The black opals went beautifully with the top, but I’ve a feeling they were an Earthstones special and might not be around now.
I didn’t go to much of the pose fair, but I couldn’t resist this phone box – mind you, from what I remember the box would be a lot grubbier and smellier than this one looks (not so many of this old type of phone box around now).
