Alphabet Challenge-E

Alphabet Blog Challenge-E

Letter E in Willow Zander’s Alphabet Challenge was a challenge! I spent a great deal of time working out various looks with shoes that had an E.  Getting the right combination was finally solved when I settled on starting with En Svale‘s Cowichan sweater, and based my look from there.  That settled it was fun to use many items I had tucked away, like these earmuffs from artilleri, and this knit hat from epoque. I love this bag from Tokidoki and would love to have it in real life. My skin is Eva from Tuli, and worn with eye-makeup from ElymodeElikatira‘s secret boots were perfect, and felt I needed to add some socks from League in ecru, as my legs looked cold in my denim skirt from Emery with out them.

Teal & Plum Mix

Teal & Plum Mix

After being on a semi black and white binge recently I had to have some color, LeeZu’s La pequena chaqueta jacket was just what I needed.  It’s a fun jacket full of rich intense color, and texture, with great shaped prim parts to add further dimension.  This deep intense teal went well with Adam n Eve’s Skai boots in Calypso.  Not to overpower the outfit I went with Maitreya’s Jules denim skirt which has this lovely sculpted skirt prim, and belt.  It holds it own in the outfit while still letting the jacket set the tone.

For a touch of added color I pulled out the plum tones in the jacket with  Maitreya’s Slouch Socks, and added more with ETD’s Casual Purse in Eggplant and Orchid.  The purse comes with its own ao, and I am glad I picked up the fat-packs of purses from ETD.  Celestial Studio’s Whitney style hair added more color in the color-changeable headband, while pulling the hair back to show off the collar of the Jacket.  VG Republic’s (yes, still closed, but we are patient) Double Hoop earrings colorchangable in plum were a close enough match, the color was close to the shades of purples already in the jacket.  Redgrave’s Leticia skin in lilac worked lovely too.

I wore my Boot Fixer hud for this post, I have been wearing it more and more and even with short ankle boots and shoes.  Its this neat little hud, very simple to use, wear and turn on.  It corrects any deviation in animations, and poses that distort the line of the foot/ankle area so no matter what shoes or boots you are wearing they always line up perfectly.  Even with regular shoes you wouldn’t think this would be such a problem, but I have noticed it helps too, so now I am wearing it all the time.  It’s $50 on xstreet, and available here.   Sasy turned me onto this gadget, she blogged it here.
