Lazy but Stubborn


for today, a few blabla, a little rant and one of my favorite outfits of the moment.

Heather Red take 2

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.

Bleu Canard


Call it the way you like: teal, cyan, cerulean blue, turquoise, bleu pétrole. I call it duck blue and it is one of my favorite colors.

Bleu Canard 2

This morning, when I’ve found that skirt at MNK, I was all excited, as I like a lot the combination of taupe and bleu canard (yes, a little of french here as I often prefer the names we have for the colors). Then, a small nightmare began as I couldn’t find a matching top. I’ve tried brown but it was a bit sad. White or cream were not working either. Finaly, i’ve found that sweater at So Many Styles. I was looking for an occasion to use those jewels from Sigma I had picked up at a special price at Coppley Square some time ago; the thin teal line makes it a perfect addition to the outfit. I’ve also found an excuse to buy that bag you’ve seen in plenty of blogs, including Élan by Fayne Khandr (that is where i’ve picked the LM), it is from B@rose and definately gorgeous.

Bleu Canard

I was a bit disapointed while working on this outfit. I thought it would be easy to find tops with the bleu canard color but after visiting all my favorite shops, I’ve found very little choices. It is funny to see colors wearing the same name (teal) really don’t match.
Last time i went for some shopping in RL, it was a color in fashion, we could see it in plenty of shops but not in SL. I insist here, it is more blue than green and what we often see is a bit too green and too light.

I am often amazed when talking with people to see we can use so different names for the same color. I remember having a discussion with a friend about violet. I wanted violet mascara and he came back with mauve. So, I told him thank you but that is not the right color, what you brought me is much lighter than violet. And then, a very long discussion issued with comparisons like “mauve is kind of like lilac, while violet is like the flower, dark, a bit like aubergine”. In the end, he still calls it mauve.
