W is for — Wax and War

W is for Wax and War

Interesting combination, you say?  Perchance.  All I can say is that I finally found a few matches for W in Vanessa Blaylock’s alphabetical inventory challenge.  I dug out the green wax bangles that I have on my wrist here with some luck; they came from Yak & Yeti several years ago.  And the “war” is this hairstyle from Vanity, Love After War.  You can’t see all the pileup or the tail in back due to my position and the brick walls at the Blarney Stone, but it’s a big updo that works quite nicely.

V is for — Vixen

V is for Vixen

Wouldn’t you feel like a vixen, too, in a nice snug catsuit?  One of my favorites is this old suit named Vixen from SLink, before the days when they became obsessed with prim hands and feet (grin).  It’s complete with gloves and shoes, and fits — just right….

U is for — Urizaska

U is for Urizaska

I thought I was gonna have a hard time with U for Vanessa Blaylock’s alphabetical inventory challenge — but I ran across these glasses/sunshades from Urizaska.  They’re menu-driven, and my current preferred glasses when I go walking in the sunshine.

T is for — Tube Dress

T is for Tube Dress

This Audrey tube dress from PurpleMoon is made of mesh leather, and fits quite nicely….  (knowing smile)

S is for — Sydney

As in Sydney Harbor Bridge, Australia.  And how did I fit Sidney Harbor Bridge into my Inventory, you ask?

S is for Sydney

Very simple.  I’ve admired this poster, released to publicize the opening of the Bridge in 1932, for years, and turned it into a print.  (I first saw it at an Outback restaurant in Tuscaloosa.)

R is for — Rebel Hope

R is for Rebel Hope

Rebel Hope has been on the Grid as long as I can remember, and I’ve been stopping in more and more over the past year.  I picked up this gown, Lola, for the — intriguing — halter top covered with stars; and I match it here with similarly decorated pumps from Danielle.  (It’s red, too — another R!)

Q is for — Quartz

Q is for Quartz

No, Q is not for “queen,” although that would be the easiest thing.  (How many of us girls don’t have a few royal costumes socked away in inventory [grin]?)  I wanted something different.  Quartz is also a “common” available item, but not as common as royalty, I suspect.  So, for Vanessa Blaylock’s alphabetical inventory challenge, I pulled out these Ruffle Around earrings with quartz centers.  They’re probably best for a daytime look, but they have some versatility to them, depending on the nighttime dress you choose.

P is for — Pipe

P is for Pipe

Smokin’ again, I know.  But it’s such a nice pipe:  one of the two Bouhachi kiseru pipes released by Rozoregalia.  Script-driven with nine poses and smoke on or off.

O is for — Orange

In salute to the inauguration of the new King and Queen of the Netherlands, her home country, Sascha Frangilli has created a new gown named Queen Máxima, in the orange of the Royal House.  It will be right in the front of the New Items section of Sascha's Designs, and at a very special price.

The first thing that occurred to me for O in Vanessa Blaylock’s alphabetical inventory challenge was orange; and this gown from Sascha’s Designs, which I featured last year for the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, is as orange as it gets.

N is for — N-core

N is for N-core

N-Core has good shoes, and here’s one of my stock ones, which I actually managed to match the skin to!  I’ll admit that SLink feet and appliers make color matching simpler, but once in a while I get it right.
