Week twelve of Luna Jubilee's color challenge was a total challenge. I am seriously not a brown or neutrals kind of person, and I wasn't sure I owned any taupe.
Yay for inventory search! I turned up some taupe from Sn@tch, and some really old shoes from Sweeter Than Candy (I don't think she actually sells them anymore). I ended up with a kind of beachy outfit with spots of darkness. It shows a bit of belly, but tastefully so I think. I like the swirl of the skirt, and balanced the black of the top with black stockings and black water both.
When looking for a place to pose, I ended up on the taupish beaches of Whimsy, the home of Chey and her sweetie, which I'd read about for ages but never actually gone to (and even this time I didn't really explore. I ended up lurking around the sands, snatching some beachy piratey pictures, and then bouncing back to my lucky board stalking). I particularly liked the pirate map. Perhaps someday when I'm feeling wandery, I will settle in and explore - or maybe I might bring friends!
It's seems a charming place, but I suppose I'm feeling a little flat and neutral today - not much energy for raptures about the world. And since Whimsy seems like a perfect place to be enthusiastic, I want to save it for an enthusiastic day.
