Oranges Are Good For You

I love the fruit and the color orange. Sadly, I became allergic to oranges a few years ago and can only enjoy the fruit in SL now, but the color is still a pleasure in both worlds. With oranges this brililant and rich – all I can say is orange you happy I took pictures?

Last night I had a lovely conversation with Abraxxa Anatine, the creative force at EarthStones, who was looking for a skirt featured in a post a while back.  She generously gave me some of her most recent releases including the luscious Fire/Silver version of her Crystal Elements necklaces she released yesterday. It comes with two pieces – a shorter necklace that attaches to the spine – where my top’s collar attaches. Lovely, though, to have two options. As chance would have it, I had just bought this lustrously glossy orange shirt from Good Look Designs. Together, they look good enough to eat – so long as you haven’t any allergies.

I think I tried on a half dozen pairs of pants before choosing these from Casa del Shai.  Most were just not a deep enough brown to stand up next to such a saturated orange, but these were perfect. The alligator texture just made them even a better match. With such lovely autumnal colors, I knew I had to go to Tempura to shoot among the lovely fall leaves.  I know that’s a bit of a cliche, but the reason things become cliche is because they work so well,

Tuli’s Elizabeth skin – in Fern makeup today – is always fresh and natural looking.  The necklace did not have matching earrings last night, so I wore these wrapped amber earrings also from EarthStones. However, a little AbraxxaBird told me that matching earrings will go on sale later today.

    Oh yes, I dream about eating oranges. I can get absolutely silly thinking about the whole orange-eating experience, that bursting zest, the pungent orange smells, the way the juice can sprinkle your face. I think if it weren’t off limits, perhaps it would not all sound, smell and taste so wonderful in my memory
