Thunder and Lightning

Filed under: Mix and Match — Candy Lemmon @ 11:26 am

Put your umbrellas away – the only danger in mixing cloudy grey and electric yellow are scattered compliments and a 90% chance of a smile.

Van is demonstrating a young and playful take on formal-wear, ala the funky and fashionable Chuck Bass of Gossip Girl. His striped polo and plaid blazer with hand-drawn bowtie and diamond pin details is a beautiful Paper Couture design available at These Shai Delacroix’s grey tuxedo slacks have a fantastic satin cummerbund that dress up any look, and his embroidered Shanghai dress shoes echo the feeling of wealth. His hairstyle is a newer look from Aoharu, and Miriel’s “Peridot” is behind his pale green eyes. He won’t be swapping his Scorpio skin much it would appear – we both love him in it.

Van gave me a little pocket money a few days ago, and I ran right out to purchase my first Chai skin. I chose her “Antonia” makeup, a lovely green eye, and I’ve never been more satisfied… except now I want all the others :). I’m stepping out again in my yellow Maitreya heels – what can I say, I love bright colors and I love stilettos. For some reason, shoes are the hardest thing for me to buy, and these pumps work their way into a lot of my outfits. The jumper-dress is a design I had somehow missed from Aoharu, with a sculpted petal skirt that can be worn alone (a feature they have been including a lot with their dresses, and another reason I’m just smitten with the brand), and a splash of yellow banded at the waist. I’m not any good at pulling off neutrals (maybe it’s the bright red hair?), so a little color is always welcome in my world. I chose a puffed-sleeve blouse from another Aoharu outfit, and tinted a cravat an acid yellow shade. You’ll see a lot of ties and bowties on this blog, I love them so. This hair is my new “default” style, by Mirai Shan, who has a uniquely sexy and fresh selection at her store. The hair flower is a past Kurotsubaki group gift, and my Candy Nail of the day is the Jel Drop Set in Lemon.
