52 Weeks of Color~Part Deux~Persian Rose/Hucci/Mons

Hey guys….guess what…..I’m Baaacccckkkk!!!!  Yay!  Thank you to all of my loyal readers that kept checking in over the last couple months.  I really appreciate that, it makes me feel good 🙂  Well, I have missed a total of 12 weeks of Luna’s challenge.  Hopefully I will be able to get caught up.  I am amazed at how much as changed over the last couple months.   The SL fashion community is constantly changing and evolving and is abounding with creativity!!!  Well for my first post back, I am going to feature some new mesh from Hucci and Mons‘ new skin, Jelena.

This week’s color is Persian Rose, which is essentially a deep, hot pink.  While catching up on the SL Fashion scene, I of course had to check out Hucci.  They have quite a bit of new mesh (which I love!) .  I picked up this adorable Glimpse halter and Suede mini skirt. I am wearing both in wild pink, but they have a large variety of colors available.  These were both relatively easy to fit too.  I fit into the small skirt without any adjustments.  My small boob shape was a bit too small for the small top, but a small increase fixed that (I wish my rl body came with sliders for adjustment!).  The skin I am wearing is Mons‘ newest release, Jelena.  I have never purchased a skin from Mons before, but I was looking for something a little different.  I tend to get stuck on my favs, Dream Ink, Pink Fuel, Glam Affair, etc.  Change is good 🙂  I really like the face and body shading on this skin.  It is very subtle and natural looking.  I also like the makeup.  I tend to favor darker,more dramatic eye makeup and Mons has a HUGE variety!  I am wearing the tan version of the skin and it came with several different makeups, 2 brow options (I am wearing natural) and a cleavage option.  I did purchase this lipstick separately from the basic skin pack.  It was in the Dominant pack.  These photos below have not been edited, other than to be cropped and a small amount of liquify to fix pointy elbows.  My hair is from Catwa, my earrings are from glow, my rings are from Dark Mouse, my tattoo is from Chelle, and my nails are from Love Soul.

Happy Shopping ❤

52 Weeks of Color~Part Deux~Seashell Peach

I must say, I found this color to be the easiest one yet!  I had quite a few items in my inventory that matched.  I settled on this pretty lace dress from Mimikri, called Suza.  My jewelry is the Siddean Dark Garnet set from Mood.  My eye shadow and lipstain are from Chelle.  My hair is from Catwa.  Sorry to be abrupt, but the Easter Bunny (me) still has eggs and baskets to fill LOL.  Have a Happy Easter everyone!

52 Weeks of Color~Part Deux~Royal Purple

Well, here is my Royal Purple…I found this color to be really, really hard!  However, I do love the shirt I found.  It is an oldie that was in my inventory, from the long defunct, Pixeldolls.  My pants are Chain and Vine’s new mesh leather pants.  My hair is one of Truth’s newest releases, Auralee.  It is a partial mesh style, but I didn’t like the mesh portion that went over the shoulders because it didn’t actually lie on my shoulders.  So, I just left it off.  My earrings, rings, and nails are from Mandala.  My shoes are from N-core.  Have a good week everyone!!

52 Weeks of Color-Part Deux~Avacado

Well, the last couple weeks have been extremely busy!  First my hard drive died on my laptop the day before I left for vacation 😦  I was gone for 10 days and then had to buy a new laptop.  What a pain it is to set up a new computer!  This time, I spent a little more money so I could get a better graphics card and hopefully I can get shadows working !  I have started using the new Exodus viewer, and I love it!!!!  It is very easy to use and I can wear mesh on low graphics!  If you are frustrated with your viewer, I highly recommend it.   Anyway…tomorrow I head out of town again (for work this time), so I am trying to get caught up on my posts for Luna’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge Posts.  Have you ever been to Peqe?  I stumbled across this store in a hunt, and I love it!  I was there browsing around and I came across this sexy, vintagey jacket called Pacific.   I am wearing it with Hucci’s new ribbon leggings.  You can’t see them in this picture, but the leggings have ribbons that criss cross at the ankles with little bows in the back.  Sexy and cute!  My jewelry is the Amida set from Mandala.  My skin is Dream Ink’s latest release, Lyra, worn with Chelle’s Adele eyeliner and Sparkle Eyeshadow.  My hair is Exile’s new mesh hair, Take it off, in Autumn.

52 Weeks of Color-Part Deux~Patina

Its hard to believe that it is already week 5 of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge!  I thought Patina would be a hard color, but I found this outfit from Sascha’s called Vicky, pretty easily in my inventory.  The outfit comes in three colors, this particular one being aqua, or Patina in my book LOL.  It features a Madonna-esque top and matching jeans.  My jewelry set is from Zuri’s and is called Turquoise Moonglow.  My hair is from W&Y and my skin is from YS&YS.  My ring is from Mood.

52 Weeks of Color-Part Deux~Iron

Well, its the fourth week and I am already behind.  My RL has been a little hectic lately…Mr. Teardrop had his rotator cuff repaired last week 😦  Silly me didn’t think it would be too difficult to take care of a one armed hubby, 3 dogs, 2 kids and a house.  Anywhooo…  life is good now and I am back to bloggin’!  I didn’t have a lot of time to shop this week so I had to find something in my inventory.  Since I have 63k items in my inventory I should be able to find something iron right?  Well, I came across this shirt from Adiva (which I think is now closed), it is part of the Studio 54 outfit.  I am wearing it with leather pants from XTC Leather.  My hair is Yuri, a new release from Catwa.  My earrings are from [glow].

Nikita from Morea Style

This is the newest release from Morea Style, Nikita.  This outfit can be worn as a pants outfit or with two different skirt options.  It also has two different jacket options.  This versatile outfit is also available in a multitude of colors.

I am wearing:  My hair is Bam! from Analog Dog, My boots are from [Gos], my jewelry is the Magnolia set from Alienbear.
