Flower Power meets Working Girl
Due to the intervention of rl computer problems, it looked for awhile like Jaydie might not be able to participate in the challenge, so Chi volunteered to fill in. Since we were both thinking about it, we just decided to do a double post and do some comparative mashups. Lucky next person, you get twice as many items to pick from. Or to agonize over, perhaps…
As you can see we took completely different directions from Guenevere DeCuir’s FRC post on Crimson Flow. Jaydie picked up the Callico Peasant Top from Sn@tch (available in fat pack only) despite the fact that she found it WAAAAAY outside her comfort zone, and used it as the basis for a very soft, feminine, yet gorgeous outfit for a day of fashionista socialite partying. It strikes Chi as having a somewhat latina feel, due to the gathered top, the loose flowing pants from Cubic Effect and the open shoes by Adam n Eve, but that might be because she’s been spending time watching soaps on Telemundo and Univision trying to pick up the language. ETD’s new Torwen style, which has been taking sl by storm the last few days, completes the soft flowing look.
Chi honed in on the perky half tie from [Kyoot]. She was in a monochrome mood, and needed one little bit of punch, so the pink windowpane pattern (named ’70s Sorority, which left Chi feeling like she was suffering from sugar shock) really provides a visual focus while not quite going over the edge of too much. The rest of the outfit was going to be straight out of inventory but Sasy mentioned she and Whimsy had been in a podcast, searching for which got Chi exposed to Whimsy’s blog for the first time ever. So it’s either Sasy’s or Phaylen Fairchild’s or Whimsy’s fault that Chi ended up at Gisaci shopping for a new shirt. Completing the ensemble are a satin jacket by Chic Boutique and pants borrowed from one of Nicky Ree’s infamous “truck full of pieces” sets called Nichole.
Good luck to Terry Toland of Lifestyles of the Broke and Notorious who is up next in the Challenge.
As always, we remain wedded to sachi Vixen’s delightful skins. Our current favorite is Angel.
