Dirty little apricot.

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.

Melon, baby but way too skinny.

52 Weeks - Melon
[location: overrush digital club] [52 Weeks of Color Challenge]

The Back Story.
I can’t tell you how skinny I had to make myself to fit into this skirt. Gawd bless ’em, I do like Tokodoki, but when you have to push all of your sliders down to zero in order to keep bits and pieces from poking out, maybe the designer needs to supply a resizer hud. I mean, common… body thickness = ‘0’? That’s some messed up shit.
