52 Weeks of Color: Plum Perfect

52 Weeks of Color - Plum I

What is more mortifying than to feel that you have missed the plum for want of courage to shake the tree?

The light shade of purple dubbed plum for this week’s color challenge actually had me scratching my head and clawing at my inventory. I suppose I could have pulled out a lovely soft lilac gown, but it wouldn’t really go with the redQueen skin with runny mascara or the 69 short-crop hairstyle I already pulled out. Besides, it’s not often I do (or can) put together a ‘normal’ outfit.

Unfortunately, as I don’t do casual-couture very often, I’m struggling with my typically ‘fanciful’ vocabularly. The super-tight mini from Malfean Visions varies the shades of light purple throughout the material, creating body without overwhelming the wearer; however, the skirt flap was no-modify, which is a problem for my shape’s hips n’ butt. On the other hand, it was a gift through the Midnight Mania, so I can’t complain.

I tugged on some tights, slid into my shruggie, and pulled on some comfy boots to personalize and accessorize- it’s farkin’ cold where I am, and my avatar can reflect how I prefer to be bundled up right now.
