52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Taupe

Luna Jubilee started this challenge awhile ago on her blog and while I have been following it I have not been participating. Well, this week I decided to finally get on board! Taupe is such a lovely, earthy color. The earth tones get far too little credit, even though they are often the most peaceful and calm-inducing colors out there. I chose kind of a flashy background to emphasize the simple elegance of this top from Thalia. My pants are from DeLa, and I love the texture on them as well, just enough dressiness to make this look a little more upscale.

When we think jewelry our minds don’t automatically shout “Brown! Brown is the best color for jewels!” However, this lovely chocolate diamond set from Ear Candy is just the right mix of earthy and elegant.

My shoes today are from Maitreya and are technically not taupe, but they are very close. These are so beautiful I am not sure they could even exist in RL.

And just for fun I am trying out Kristen’s Viewer and playing around with shadows. I am finally getting some shadows, but I think there is still some work to be done on getting the right lighting, or something. My face has some flat angles on it in this light. Also note how my previously brown earrings and necklace now look orange. Ah, the virtual morass that is high-definition graphics settings.
