Not Your Granny's Granny Square

How many of you have a granny square afghan made by some older relative who tirelessly crocheted multitudes of color scraps of yarn into rosettes and squares and then painstakingly sewed or crocheted them together?  Well, Crochet takes that ubiquitous crocheted rosette favored by grannies the world over and puts them to very un-grannylike use.  Ahem…I present to you the  Crochet Candy Bikini & Skirt – though it would be more appropriately named Shock Your Granny!

Granny says Eep!
Granny says "Eep!"

Now seriously, what could be more fun than a bikini that bares a lot – and covers very strategically using that most mundane and chaste little rosette from Granny’s crochet bag?

Greasy BlingSlut Confessions

Well, it can get hotter with the addition of these delightful sandals from Stiletto Moody – these Katherine sandals wrap your ankle in about as many threads as are in that bikini.  I confess that I am one of those silly people who stripped down to 1 ARC and made uncounted and seriously discouraging numbers of attempts to enter the perpetually full Stiletto Moody 2 sim where the new shoes waited so impatiently for me.  And yes, I overspent my budget for the month.  Dang!

I am also wearing the recently released Star Flower set from Dark Mouse – this time in copper. Dark Mouse was recently named the best new jeweler by Second Style. That’s exciting and well-deserved and I hope that many others come to see how innovative and fun her designs are. The hair is Maitreya. Another signature piece with the lovely casual disarray that is her hallmark.  The skin is Cupcakes Celebrity – a delight with lots of makeup options.
