She's only fooling Tangerine!

O HAI. Yes, it's me, color experimentation girl. Today I used a technique from Hethr Engle and went through my wardrobe using a color as a search term. (Wouldn't it be nice to be able to do this IRL?) "What color do I not wear often enough?" I asked myself. The answer, orange. I love orange, and somehow got out of the habit of wearing it after Halloween, but honestly Halloween is every day in SL.

The hair is free from seri. I saw Cherlindrea wearing it yesterday, and thought it looked so great on her that I hopped over and got it too. Kauai is a neat little sim! I've got to explore more thoroughly sometime.

My critique of my outfit is that the armwarmers don't really match, I probably don't need the necklace (I really need an amber-colored cameo!), and perhaps my shoes are too metallic. *grin* It's all experience.

Maybe I got in the mood for orange because of all the Frank on my iTunes last night. My avatar is a little Sinatra fangirl in this (mostly /artilleri/) outfit. Anyone else write Rat Pack slash? No? Erm, neither do I...honest.

Tangerine, she is all they say
With mascara'd eye and chapeaux by Dache.
And I've seen clothes on Tangerine
Where the label says "From Macy's Mezzanine".
Yes, she's got the guys in a whirl, but she's only fooling one girl
She's only fooling Tangerine!
-- Sinatra, Tangerine

Yeah Hethr is a hard act to follow, but you've done great! I hope I can find that jacket at Icing ...

*grin* it's part of a pretty dress set that comes with its own grey skirt. Love the classic look of it.

umm I think blogger at my first comment. Either way I think you look fabulous and the changes you mentioned would be perfect! Although I bet you could just tint the armbands darker. Well either way very cute *hugs*

Aw, hehe. Thanks, Hethr. I was thinking that the shiny things pump(kin) pumps would've worked with this, and maybe no armwarmers. :D orange bracelets or somethin'.

Auntykuro said...

*grin* Frank/Dean/Sammy OT3 !!

I was wondering if anyone else would know what that was <3

Heather said...

Well you know how I feel about bangles so of course you can't go wrong there :P But I think you don't give yourself enough credit you always manage to look very *you* which is of course what everyone should be shooting for anyway.
