52 Weeks of Color: #4 Plum

We’re four weeks into the color challenge, and I’m having more and more fun each week.  I thought plum might be a bit difficult, mainly because there are so many different shades of purple to sift through in my inventory, but I really don’t think it was that bad.  I decided to delve into my inventory rather than searching the grid like crazy this week, so I stuck to my platform and searched my clothing folders for hours.  Since I like to mix and match, my plum outfit isn’t really plum through and through, but it does give an overall plum effect.  And I kinda like it that way.

The focal piece of the look is the skirt, but I actually started this look with the aubergine Claven Lace Blouse from [Whippet & Buck].  I absolutely love this blouse (and have blogged another color before), and I knew it would be the perfect base for my plum look.  Since the blouse is a bit too sheer for this look, and I didn’t want to show any nipple today, I chose a dark blue bra from :: DUTCH TOUCH :: to wear underneath the blouse, which tricks the eyes by giving the appearance of dark purple on the surface.  Then I added this awesome HighWaist Skirt from Maitreya, which is one of the most awesome high-waisted skirts on the grid.  Seriously… it never gets old.  Plus, the lighter plum shade of the skirt creates a nice balance between light and dark plums, and, luckily, I had the matching Allure heels and tights from Maitreya Gold to round out the lower half of the look, so it worked out really well.

For accessories, I started with this awesome Dragon Fly Fabric Necklace from Paper Couture, which adds a fancy pop to the outfit and really dresses up the look.  To push the envelope a bit further, I added some more pop with this adorable Stella clutch from [ORTA].  Then I added a cute butterfly ring from > alaMood < (which I think is just MOOD now), which adds the perfect finishing touch to the look.  I’ve blogged this Jessica 02 hairstyle from [ 69 ] before, and I absolutely adore it.  And, of course, the Laqroki Isabel skin is STILL my skin of choice.

Next week’s color is sepia.  I can’t wait!
