Teal tales

Most of the stuff at the latest colabor88 is mesh, but I was happy to put on this non-mesh outfit from Nylon Outfitters: I could see my proper shape again! I realised after I’d taken the pictures that I don’t showcase a feature of the jacket: the pretty pattern on the back. That pattern is one reason why I chose this hairstyle (so the back wasn’t covered up). The mesh hair from Wasabi Pills has a very cute braid and a beautiful sweep of hair, that leaves one side of the scalp uncovered. They supply a “shaved head” base, but that is my one complaint as you only get it in green in this coloureds pack. In the notecard it says that this should work with all the hair in this pack, but frankly it looked too green. Fortunately this teal hairbase from Truth matched nicely.

I have always liked AnnaLee Balut’s colourful clothes, and now there are some really nice mesh items coming out in the “Shushu” line (items by her daughter!). This is actually the DEMO version of the “Take it easy” dress, but as you can see it is a fully functioning freebie, and I liked the style immediately. I bought a mesh bag from the same shop and then added some old leggings from Zaara and the mesh booties that I’m liking with lots of outfits. Another freebie (group gift) at the moment is the witchy “stuffed cat” from HPMD: there are also some seasonal pumpkins to pick up, and the cat comes in rez and hold versions as well as this head-top version.

Working out

I wanted a non-mesh outfit for a meeting where I was speaking (you don’t want to think that part of the audience just sees disembodied hands and head waving around) and so I pulled out some old favourites, and added a nice new lace belt and dangly necklace from League (where the key piece of the outfit came from, too i.e. the pretty cardigan). I tried out some exercise machines, but it was soon all too much for me and I collapsed in a heap in the locker rooms. I must say, I think these Zaara jeans are still more attractive than most of the mesh jeans you see around.

Sad and tired
This t-shirt isn’t the most elegantly made, but I couldn’t resist the slogan “People always tell me I look sad and tired. I know I look sad and tired. I am sad and tired”. I faded the colours out in that photo (though that doesn’t make any difference to the t-shirt), you can see the hair colour better in the picture below (without the t-shirt) taken in the shop Little Hopper, trying out the cute poses in a table.

Kitty and mesh

I’m being very cautious with mesh clothes, because I go to meetings where I know that quite a few people don’t have browsers that render mesh properly. I’ve already had one experience (wearing this very outfit) where someone’s video of the event has me with a bald hairbase and part of my top half missing. I’m really looking forward to a time when I can wear mesh with more confidence, though, because items like this sweater are really great to wear, and it was SO nice having a long plait that moved with me, rather than sticking in me. I took this picture in a shop that had a cute devil-kitty wandering round to pet.

Drifting off
I visited the Back to Black event (which is raining awareness of mental health issues). One of things I picked up was this lovely set in lapis – necklace, bangle and earrings. Most of the other things I’m wearing are comfy old favourites. I did revisit Raw House for my hair, though, I’d forgotten they did a nice selection of blues.
