Liver Noir.

[location: 1920s Berlin Project] [42/52 weeks of color]

The Back Story.
I had a pretty good idea of where I wanted to go with this from the start. Veering rather drastically off from the direction of my last challenge response, this “liver” color pulled me into the sepia-toned world of the 1930’s with a strong nod to the film noir era to come. No happy day-glo here, folks. This is Berlin, circa 1930, and happy, happy, joy, joy ist einfach nicht in ordnung.

I love this aesthetic, though. This is far more me than the festive colors we’ve been having lately. I decided to add just a little popette of color in the yellow shoes with red soles and the yellow beads. A nice Liz Arden red or a rich coral would work particularly well, too, but I liked the hint of jaundice suggested by the yellow.

The sim is one of my favs, the 1920s Berlin Project. Put on your era-appropriate duds and head over there for a look-see. It struck the right tone for the direction I decided to go this week.

The Back Story.
This was an inventory combing week. I figured I would come up with something, you know. It’s not like chartreuse scares me or anything. But I did have to peck about for a bit.

Dirty little apricot.

[location: tableau] [52 weeks of color challenge]

The Back Story.
With apricot, like melon, I could have gone the pastel pretty route, but I’ve been feeling kinda scuzzy this week. Dirtied up, you know. A little dusty and frayed. A bit trailer park in the heat of summer.

So, notice that there is an apricot-ish sort of thing going on in the top, but it’s an apricot that’s a little bruised and battered, like it’s been sitting at the bottom of the bin in a down-and-out greengrocers. Not the freshest, and all that.

Questionably patriarchal.

Patriarch?
[location: my ugly dorothy, tov auction]

The Back Story.
I fully cop to this not being genuinely “patriarchal” in its boldness. But, it’s what I had on. We’ll call it ‘patriarch lite’.

Just as I type that, the image of Kody Brown pops into my head, and I start to feel a little queasy. Oh dear. That is unfortunate.

Denim in the Delta.

Delta blues

The Back Story.
Here we are a bit more like my usual self, although I’m not too sure how I feel about the revival of the early 70s maxi dress. Still, this is a denim sort of number.

A bit faded, but still denim.
