Lika Ruby

I decided I’d solved the chartreuse problem (for the 52 weeks of colour challenge) when I found this satin jacket from Lika Ruby, then when I went to Zaara to pick up the earrings that are part of the Platinum Hunt, I wandered into Tesla and couldn’t resist these shoes. They’re a really shiny metalic green, like little green shiny beetles. My cat Quilt was lying in her favourite position flat out on the floor and I thought she made a nice contrast to the shoes.
No cats were harmed

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”.

I tried on several pairs of jeans before I settled on this pair that seemed to be close to umber … then I remembered this shirt (which unfortunately doesn’t seem to be available any more, sorry) which I just had to wear as it picked up the blue in the cuffs and the pretty floral motif, plus I think the background is close to umber as well…
The new Milana hair brand does some very nice blue colours, this was the style I liked the most. The second picture (below) doesn’t show the outfit very well, but I thought the new LISP teacup chandelier looked so sweet in my greenhouse that I couldn’t resist posting it.

Something old, something new

When I went over to Dark Mouse before the store gets moved, I was upset to see that her Retro Daisies set was in the discount area, possibly to be retired for good. It is one of my favourites! I decided the best thing to do (other than getting my alt to buy a set too, lol) was to blog it (the third time, I think). The new thing is the cami and dress set from Lika Ruby (which you can buy separately). The textures on this are beautiful, the skirt is very floaty, and I love the beaded ties at the back.
The other things are “old”, or at least older, including the Kalnin sandals from last year and this pretty hair from Clawtooth. I also decided to wear two retired items: the Elizabeth skin from Tuli (one of the few pale skins that has ordinary makeup, it really annoys me when you get a nice pale skin and can only get it with over-the-top makeup options) and my big blue Miriel eyes.
