Pose Fair 2012: Horse Love

Captivity has a great mesh horse prop at the Pose Fair. When I first saw it I was reminded of a photo I took when my Uncle Tim took me and a group of cousins up into the high Uintahs on horseback. It remains to this day one of my favorite trips ever. So I pulled the photo out of the scrapbook and scanned it. This is Zach, he was always my horse when my uncle took us on these overnighters. He was a big part-Clydesdale, part Morgan and we got along well together.

Zach

I know, I know, I am the height of fashion here. Let’s just remember that I was sleeping on the ground and about a hundred miles from anywhere, so no judging, please! Smile

I have named my mesh horse Zach in my old friend’s honor.

There are five different poses that come with the horse and you can change the color of the coat and the mane. I tried to get him to look as much like my Zach as possible. And as for me, I did manage to find a similar, albeit more stylish sweatshirt and hat. I really like this casual hat style from Argrace. No Green Eggs and Ham, but we’ll just call that an improvement. My jeans are from PerleRare at Oh! and they are perfect for comfy horseback riding, being definitely more curvy-style than many other mesh jeans I have seen.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: St. Patrick’s Blue

I had a hard time telling how this was different from electric blue in week 3. This was a color that probably inspired us all to do a little research. In the end I was glad for the slightly muted cast of this color, as I was in the mood for calm and relaxing.

But first of all, the following ladies should look for their Sugarsmack gift hair in-world, congrats!:

Is anyone taking bets on how many people wear Elie Spot’s new mesh skinny jeans in their posts this week? I know I haven’t taken mine off since I bought them. My necklace is from Stars!—this was one of the 55 for Life items from Fashion for Life this week. I like it so much I think I better give away a few! Go ahead and leave your comment below to be included in the drawing for next week.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Mauve

As soon as I saw the color challenge for this week these hilarious lines from Stephen Sondheim’s Broadway musical Into The Woods popped into my mind:
[FLORINDA]
Never wear mauve at a ball…
[LUCINDA]
Or pink…
[STEPMOTHER]
Or open your mouth…

If you’ve never seen the show, check it out, it is one of my favorites, very poignant and funny. However, I did make Bruce wear mauve to the ball, and he was a very good sport about it, as he would have rather been wearing his new Batman costume. Smile  Thanks for being mauvelous, Bruce!

(For you curious folk I have included the clip from the musical at the end of the post! Enjoy!)

    I think being partners in mauve is a very cute idea 😉 and I agree with Laila, the hairpiece makes it, it matches so beautifully with the dress.
