September 5, 2015


Things really feel really when you are looking at paint chips! And I am feeling really good about these being the colours for the new place. Feels light enough to match the energy, but bright enough to match MY energy. Yippee!!!


I had a more open non-appointment day so I went to VV to do more perusing. I was going to get those Nutella pants but I put them back because I'm trying not to spend money on myself. I almost bought this corset because I thought it would be a fun thing to put into the boutique but I chickened out. The funny things is when I shared this image on FB everyone chided me for not buying the pants! LOL. And one person suggested I wear the corset with the pants and Steampunk goggles for a distinctly Suzie outfit. This made me smile. I guess no one thought I would be able to sell it. Instead they wanted me to wear both items but especially the pants. I might go back tomorrow to see if they're still there. They really are calling my name.

I think they're great Shannon! Very happy artsy colours that will look great in your new apartment. I love how someone on FB said they look like Easter egg colours.

It's so funny because Easter Egg makes me think Spring, which is the season I least think of myself when it comes to colour. I'm hedging on the purple a little now, but I feel very strongly about the other 2. It should looks pretty awesome overall!

Did you end up going back to VV to check on the clothes? I can totally see you in those pants. But then again just because something suits us doesn't mean we have to have it. The corset is really awesome, I can see the temptation to get it although I imagine getting close to the Halloween season someone might have snagged it. Re-selling it would all have to depend on the price though, anything like that at this VV would likely be priced too high to get a good resale price.

Oh interesting! Well there you are Shannon, a spring. I think that's awesome. Perhaps the purple should just be an accent colour? Of you could of course go with just the two you really like. It's so exciting to design your world and you get it the way you want it.

I did get the pants, LOL. They made me laugh which is one of the reasons I went back. The corset was $12.99 so I would have had to sell it for $19.99 minimum to make any profit. Some of the prices there are crazy. Most shoes are like +$20 now!
