Dress Me Up in… Creamshop! (by Achariya)

Filed under: Challenge,Dress Me Up!,Freebie Love,Mix and Match — Candy Lemmon @ 10:34 am

The second half of Achariya‘s “Dress Me Up” request was head to toe Creamshop: for hair, jewelry, and clothing… with a little hint that she loved the ponchos. I fell hard for them too (and about half the shop, to be honest!) but I went with my gut and started with the pleated balloon skirt and bright tight set instead.

Purple and pink isn’t seasonal, it’s not at all sophisticated, I can’t really explain myself, but I just love it for winter this year. I knew I was going to add a ton of color to this outfit, so I topped the skirt and tights with a great (Free!) simple black blazer and tank combo. I rock a LOT of tomboy looks since I accepted my first pair of jeans into my RL wardrobe, and the casual rolled-sleeve menswear look always makes me feel sexy. I pulled the plaid Creamshop scarf from my inventory, but I did buy these fantastic scripted earrings and quite a few more goodies for another day. My shiny red shoes were another great freebie from the Style Magazine boxes (still there), and the matching red bag was a group gift from ETD. Also from ETD, the lovely limited edition “Sea Nymph” braid [Sorry Ach, I just couldn’t work the Creamshop hair, much as I lusted after it] and I wore one of my favorite makeup choices from the Wax Poetic line to turn up the volume.

Color will always inspire me, especially when used liberally and boldly. I actually had a serious aversion to purses in SL, and this splashy red purse cured me instantly. I chose the yellow texture of Creamshop’s lightning bolt earrings for some clashy style points, and I just had to take a close-up of this insanely detailed safety pin charm – a passing look at the scarf doesn’t do it justice. I almost forgot to mention the short leather gloves from Fleur, in my favorite shade of the fatpack, turquoise. And before you laugh, I have it on good authority that rolling around in a box of crayons is totally the “next big thing”. Take that.

  2. I totally agree, I mean, what’s better than freaking color-change lightning bolt earrings?

    And why is there not an SL to RL button yet??
