I’ve been wearing this outfit for quite some days now but hadn’t got time to blog it properly.
I’ve chosen the new Leezu Maria Jacket in olive for its wonderful textures and a combination of colors we don’t see that often. One of the problem when you go with original colors is you cannot always mix and match it easily with other things. Fortunately, Leezu has also the new Leezu tights and the mauve ones answer to the light pink of the jacket. The Courtisane new boots in dark brown were obvious as it is about the same color as the cuffs. Finaly, I can thank my good memory as I remembered that dress from Hucci might have the right color and the great bonus is it has a belt with the right brown.
To accessorize, I’ve used new releases from Je Suis, the Aviateur Sunglasses, exclusively available at Le Look, the Creoles Earrings also from Je Suis, and only available at the Rodeo Drive location (both will be available at Je Suis main location next month) and one of the new ponytails attachment from Amacci.

for today, a few blabla, a little rant and one of my favorite outfits of the moment.
I am working on this post for 2 days. Not because the outfit was hard to get together, not at all, it was actualy easy. First came the jacket with the gilet from Kungler. I was still wearing the Surf Co. tank top from last post which was the right match so i didn’t look further. I am kind of lazy, I have to admit that. I didn’t feel like looking for a new brown skirt so I’ve searched in the depth of my inventory for that Miel Skirt. Then, I wanted to visit !Lamb to see the new hairstyles. Red hair with red jacket is not so great so i went for light brown for a change. While I was there, I’ve received a notecard from Courtisane to tell us about new releases. A quick teleport and some demo’s convinced me these were the boots i needed.
Now the rant. 2 days… After the styling part, I’ve been searching SL for the perfect location. It took me the whole evening and when i’ve finaly found what i wanted, it was way too late and I had to go to bed. Today, pretty happy as I only had to take the pictures and to write the post, i’ve started to try to capture some snapshots… After 3 hours of crashes, some inventory losses (new hair from !Lamb and a necklace from kungler) I was able to take 1 picture, only one, in my studio (Any non studio location is just out of question). It is the one you can see below. As I am more stubborn than lazy, I went on trying. I was not happy with that picture, i don’t like the lighting that much, it is a bit too yellow for me but you seem to like it on flickr. Suddenly and without doing any change to my settings, I was finaly able to take some more pictures, these are the ones you can see at the top of the post. Personnaly, i prefer a whiter lighting but feel free to tell me which one you prefer and why.
I am stubborn so I haven’t dropped taking pictures with shadows yet… but i don’t have that much free time that i can waste 4 hours a day trying to take pictures. I’ll have to decide whether to go on or not.
