..at least i can dress like i have it in sl.

a new stumblebum round started the other day, which means new items in some *gorgeously* bright && happy colors. and this top from paper.doll, in all its golden yellow glory, was absolutely perfect to perk up my i’m so sick of winter blues. yellow usually is not my first choice when it comes to colors, but this top just *spoke* to me. i love this shade, it’s like bright sunshine-in-a-fabric && i actually picked it out over the hot pink and black versions. who would’ve guessed that, hmm? ;P

i was actually feelin’ the whole colorful thing today too, so i paired the yellow top with a *gorgeously* colored mesh bag from aura out @ the back to black event, some super cute yellow anchor earrings by intrigue co which are out for collabor88, a pretty necklace from amorous and some super fun eyeliners from cstar. i’ve actually got *three* eyeliner tattoos on, because they were so nice for layering. each wing is a separate tattoo and the rainbow-y top liner is the third, which make such a unique shape.. and of course, add some extra color to my makeup, too~ the nice thing about these liners is that they *aren’t* limited like the skins usually are @ cstar, so you can go grab these at your leisure (though i *highly* recommend them, they are great for adding a bit of extra interest to the eye makeup on your favorite skins!).

i’ve done two rather dark looks the past couple of days, so i thought brightening it up a bit for a change would be fun. and it was, i adore the way all the colors i have on look together. it may be a li’l premature, and i’m sure i’ve said it a couple times recently, but i am sooooo ready for spring to be here. and colors like this remind me exactly why, *nothing* says spring like some vibrant, happy yellow and it makes me even more excited for warmer days to get here!

back to black in mesh

chic management’s back to black event is already underway, so i’m a li’l slow in showin’ off some of the goodies found there. but it’s for a *fabulous* cause, to raise awareness for mental health issues, and is one of those events where you really, really should go and browse the items offered && read the information out there.

one of said items @ back to black is this amazing mesh dress, from onyx wear. long sweaters and sweater dresses have pretty much been a staple in my winter sl-wardrobe, as is clearly evident by many of the posts here on my blog, but this one… with the subtle tiger-face print on the front and the *fantastic* wrinkling details on the mesh make this one of the most realistic && wonderfully designed sweater dresses i now own.

and since i was already wearin’ a mesh dress, i decided to go mesh all over with the rest of my outfit. the hair style i’m wearing, which is *new* from wasabi pills is mesh (and delicious, i loooove these gorgeous waves! omgah), the boots i’m wearing are mesh && from ten 10, and even my eyes are mesh.. from mayfly.

i chose some simple accessories from addiction && iced and some leggings from rezipsa loc to pull the whole look together. i kiiiinda took the whole “back to black” thing literally with my color choices, ahaha, but! it’s still an awesome event to check out if you’ve not done so yet. it’s something that hits home for a lot of us on the grid, some extra awareness can *never* be a bad thing. ❤
