Still winter here so I thought a little bright color might cheer things up. And is there and color brighter or more cheerful than orange? The fur vest from So Many Styles has been in my closet for a while and now seemed the perfect time to bring it out. This is one of the cutest fur vests around and it comes in fantastic colors and a lot of them. The chunky shoes from Fashionboi Landar are the perfect bright shade to pair with the vest …they match the cord ties.  Underneath is a really old vintage sweater from Gisaci but it still rocks. The gold muted color and the scooped neck work here (although it also has a beautiful draped, collar attachment that I am not wearing). I really like to use older pieces if they are still high quality and most everything I have from Armidi is. The other vintage thing I am wearing is my “&Bean” skin. The &Bean skins are no longer available but they have always been some of my favorites because of their strong look. The sheer slightly frilly tank top with the gold sequin trim is by Nylon Pinkney. Her hand-painted items are always wonderful…lots of style, imagination and fun! I really like that you can see the high-waist of the leopard jeans/tights (R.icielli) under it.

The glasses from Izzie’s remind me of Diane Keaton (maybe Annie Hall?) and the hair with the wrapped scarf give the whole thing a real boho flavour. The sunglasses have different tints for the lenses and the scarf has several texture change options too! If you look you can barely see a peek of the fantastic mesh earrings from Beetlebones in the large photo. I had to buy the fatpack…not only did I love the shape and design but the colors are beautiful and each color comes with gold or silver bezels. For the rest of the jewelry I wanted sort of a mix of necklaces and these are from Atelier AM and Mandala. The purple gloves are from Royal blue by Marni Grut. I really like the way the cuffs on these look and they are wide enough to fit over other pieces (plus you can size the attachments which always helps). The purse which has been blogged many times now—so you must have already seen it—is one of the many  mesh items from Maitreya. This mustard color was a special edition but it also comes in a lot of other wonderful colors. Details on everything after the cut. Well it may still be cold here but at least the sun is shining so I am going out! As always, for high-resolution versions of the photos, just click. See ya, Elisabeth

Still in the Pink

September 9, 2009

Still_in_the_Pink_close-upI don’t know why I am on a pink kick lately but I am….obviously not the right time for it since fall is arriving. Maybe a last attempt at a summery feeling? I have this beautiful, frothy top from Bare Rose in several colors and I love them all— but the pink one was just right for today. We all know that June Dion makes some of the most amazing clothing on the grid and this is certainly one example of what she does so well. The layers look so much like sheer chiffon—they float and are sheer and the fabric is really lovely. The top has been in my inventory for a while but new things in this outfit are the necklace and earrings. A new set from Mandala ( and thanks to Beanie Canning for steering me to this new shop—new to me at least). If you haven’t been to Mandala you should go over and have a look. I can tell you that you will certainly spend some lindens if you have them.  OK…next time I promise to blog a different color!! But oh I do love pink. Hope you do too.

See ya,
Elisabeth
