52 Week Colour Challenge…Taupe

Firstly, thanks to Sam for helping me blog this challenge last week. My rl is rather full at the moment so my blogging will be sporadic, more than usual, until further notice. I will endeavour to shoot when I am at home though.

Taupe…not the most common colour in my inventory. A quick search revealed Kyoot’s low back ruffled dress. A cute system piece with an attachment piece to fill the gap of the glitch shorts. I am not a great fan of such skirts but this dress works really well as it is well made and thought out. In fact rediscovering it has been a boon, I have been walking around the grid dressed like this for a whole week…lol.

As usual I kept things simple, a recent purchase from Maitreya Gold meant shoes and socks were perfect. My Miriel eyes helped out. Then I thought outside my box…why not try a skin that I haven’t worn yet along with hair I haven’t sported either?!? So, Ugly Duck Laura skin seemed to be just right and !lamb’s Cherry hair worked well too. So much so that I got compliments from my ‘new’ look.
