I decided to take part in one of these “tagged” memes on flickr. You answer some questions about yourself and then tag the people you want to answer them after you. Cerrie Janus tagged me a few months ago, and I’m finally reciprocating :). Don’t worry, I didn’t tag you. 😉

There I am: little miss Themapants! It’s not often I share so much of my real life on this blog. That’s pretty refreshing, to be honest 🙂
Outfit Details Below:
I’ve been so incredibly impressed by LeLutka‘s designs this season. It’s so much fun to wear items with top quality sculpts and baked textures that provide a rich, life-like impression–as if I could reach through my screen and know exactly what that fabric would feel like.
I suppose the irony of all this praise is that I decided to play with my photos so that they look smudged and blurred as if taken with a bad lens. Tee hee.
Of course this blog entry, like most of my entries, isn’t about just one brand. Notice the fantastic, flattering jacket from Friday, and my favorite item from Luck Inc that I used as a top. I also have been neglecting this super hair from Kyoot that could be perfected with a texture-change headband. And, as you probably know by now, one of my favorite jewelry shops for necklaces is Yummy.
Blurry Outfit Details:
I took another stroll through Trilogy, the currently-1940s-inspired shopping sim, and became enchanted once again. I purchased so many things–including this Hounds of Love &Bean skin with the most scrumptiously juicy red lips and the sculpted charmer that is the Debutante on Windsor hat from Epoque. The pink bow looks like bubblegum taffy, and it fits perfectly atop one of my very favorite hairstyles, The Seas Melt by Bubbles Clawtooth.
I’ve been meaning to blog these fun wide-legged trousers from Veschi ever since their release. They lend that simple vintage charm to this overall look.
What We Wore Back Then:
I’ve been purposefully buying a lot of white, pearl, gray, beige, and other pale tones in the past months. There’s a side of me that gravitates towards saturated colors and darker, more mysterious palettes, but I just as eagerly reach for the innocence and femininity of a light, desaturated look.
I think this personal trend plays into my adoration of antique & retro kitsch. One of my favorite small jewelry shops is Yummy by Polyester Partridge. This sweet necklace could be a meaningful collection of baubles from your grandmother, or a recent etsy.com purchase. It’s one of my very favorite recent purchases, and there’s more where it came from; so go check it out on Tableau.
Speaking of favorite things, this sweet skirt by Nylon Outfitters and the short tweed jacket by AOHARU beg for futher outfit wrangling. I want more tweed in my real life! The top was a group gift from Pig, and I want more colors! I love how Pig tops are shaded to accentuate the tiny-titted ladies. Show it off, chicas.
Have lovely day!
