{mashup} Old Habits Are Hard to Break

Just when I thought I kicked the black and white habit!  For some time in my slife, I was wearing a ton of black-white, even my hair! Since my friend, Marlee Theas, showed me these ShinyThing boots, its been hard to take them off.  This mashup is inspired by the color-changing laceup boots.  This time, I’m going from the ground up.  The boots, fabbo must-haves for the season.  The boots come in a few colors, all with the color changing laces. Its HUD driven with the option to buy more lace colors.  Yup, you guessed it, I choose pink (and it comes in the HUD colors).

The outfit kinda evolved from there.  I had a jean skirt with pink thigh high socks then pink tights then came the now look of cargos and pink fishnets.  The cargos are from Inimitably Design and come in one other color.  The only down fall to these well constructed pants is that it only come in the pants layer.  No undies layer means no layering, makes for a sad Luna. Its a minor setback but still worth the lindens.  I tucked under the black-white plaid pants Starley’s Celestial Studios’ pink fishnets.  No wardrobe is complete without a rainbow of socks, hose or fishnets.

To make your shopping easy, I chose LaLaFooFoo’s Essential Tank in pink.  LaLa FooFoo’s is located on the Celestial Studio sim, while picking up the fishies, stop over to get the tanks.  Way cheap for the fat pack!  Since LaLaFooFoo,  gives all the layers, this was a sinch to create a tucked in look.  Finishing off the top, I used what should have been a review piece from Gypsy Soul, is a short sweater with frilly edging.  You knew I had to have a girlie element to blend with all the pink.  The sweater is a piece in the latest Gypsy Soul release called Tippy. 

Checking out (and of course laughing my ass off) at the amount of hair I acquired in the last 2 years,  I realized most styles never make it to my blog.  Today is the day for this Gritty Kitty style (forgive me if its retired, I picked it up last year).  I thought it went well with the black-white pants and boots, giving the edgy-ness to the outfit.  Now what really had my decide to use the monochrome hair was [the oBscene] skin. Its in a treasure hunt that I did this morning.  $1L too!! Love the soft pale pink tones with the black lined eye. To play up the eye drama, Deviant Kitty lashes fit the bill.  Adding the touch of black pearls with a bow completes the overall look.

This was more than easy to create.  The only “hard part” was making sure the attachment points were set.  The frilly trim from the sweater attaches to the same point as the pearl collar.  Its very easy to attach the necklace to another point (like the spine) so the sweater attachment can stay on the chest.  Also, I color changed the pearls from white to steel grey.  This was an omni change and very easy.
