Where's Gainsborough When You Need Him?

Okay, okay, I know it’s a stretch, but after I put this on I could not resist the comparison. Of course, Blue Boy was all satin and lace and this is suede and corduroy. I know, think of it as working class Blue Boy.  This actually a mash-up that began with the blue dress from AXEL. It had a lovely undershirt and leggings in an array of colors and looked cute, but perhaps because of my mood just did not pop for me. So I started rummaging around in my folders and pulled out these blue suede pants from Baiastice. This is actually the first time I have worn the leg prims. Normally I wear them with boots. I remembered these old Bronte slippers from Adam N Eve which had me rummaging around for white knee socks and a tenuous resemblance to Blue Boy. These are lovely vintage slippers and that little froth of lace just makes me smile.

To be a better Blue Boy I would have gone for a lacy frothy ruffly blouse like the MNK blouse I wore the other day, but I opted for the playful lacy knit sweater with pompoms from The Closer, so you can see I did not let the Gainsborough idea take over completely.  And seriously, aren’t those little pompoms perfect for the corduroy jumper?

The hair is from Magika and the skin from Ryker’s newly release Genesis Candace skin in Peach.  This is the Redgrave makeup. I added the lovely heart jewelry from Primagine – the Everyday gold set which also includes a bracelet shown in the earlier photos.
