Week 3 of 52 Weeks of Color - Electric Indigo

I hoped to get so much more accomplished this week blog wise. I had at least three posts planned, but real life continues to wear me out. Uuuggghhh Two hours of travel time per day to and from work has got to end soon!

52WoCC - Electric Indigo

When I saw electric indigo was the color for this week, my first thought was 80s! I really didn't have many ideas of where to go looking for my outfit; so, I checked out some blogs to find stores I had never been to or hadn't been to in a while. This random search landed me at Emery.

The Skinny Jeans are a perfect addition to my wardrobe; at first the color was a little much for me, but I've actually developed a fondness for them. The color is really fun and girly. The Zebra Top on the other hand... not so much. Remember those quality pieces that will last that I mentioned wanting to add to my inventory last week? Well, I wouldn't exactly classify this shirt as one of those. Although it does match very well with the jeans, it's really not designed for anything other than posing. The sleeve pieces are very oddly shaped and attached to the shoulders; talk about not being AO friendly! The stripes were also extremely hard to deal with when it came to matching them up with the prim piece. If this shirt were mesh, it would be a total win! However, I wouldn't recommend it as is.

The necklace I'm wearing is a new piece from je suis titled Voyante Necklace Plain. It includes scripts for resizing, stone color texture, 'chain' texture and metal texture. A very neat aspect of this necklace, is that it also includes an option that allows you to input your own RGB for the stone color which allowed me to make the color perfectly electric indigo! You can never go wrong with a piece of jewelry you can custom color!

I think I had those jeans in the 80s... Great look - anyone else feel like roller skating? ;-)

Sam Laszlo said...

Very nice outfit, all matches great :)

I love those jeans, too; as you say, they are fun and girly:) (Looks doubly so in that pose) And as I was reading your critique of the shirt, I was thinking that if it were mesh, it would be a whole different story. But what really captured my attention was your eye shadow - Perfect!

Lashae Karsin said...

Exactly! I really love the look of the shirt, but wearing it with an AO that has arm movements is just not realistic. The shirt would be something I would want to keep forever if it were mesh. Perhaps old designs will become new mesh designs in the future!

I love those jeans on you, they look familiar! Great look!

Laila Laperriere said...

I love this entire look. Your zebra stripes match perfectly and the sleeves look great! I know how time consuming it is to place each piece in tact. But the time spent is well worth the finished look, and you look perfect!
Fav part? I adore those tennies!!! xo
