52 Weeks of Color~Part Deux~Jonquil

For Jonquil, I found this classic peplum dess from Ricielli.  For those of you that may not have known, the peplum originated in ancient Greece as a loosely worn tunic and while it has changed form slightly, it’s style has endured through the centuries.  Here are two great blogs, Couture Carrie and gchicnotes that have lots of great examples of peplums and some interesting history behind them.  Ricielli’s mesh version features a sweetheart neckline and is very curve hugging 🙂 I paired it with black accessories, such as Ricielli’s Cowhide Black Leather tote bag (also mesh).  Mood’s Dakhla Choker set and N-Core’s Emporium heels complete the outfit.  My hair is D!iva’s, Sayaka2.

Happy Shopping ❤


52 Weeks of Color~Part Deux~Bright Turquoise

Well, I normally have my 52 Weeks of Color post done every Saturday evening, but I had to go see Nickleback instead 🙂   I am a huge, huge Nickleback fan and it was my first time seeing them in concert!  It was a great concert!  Unfortunately, since then, my two daughters and I have been fighting colds all week 😦   I did find time to hunt down my Bright Turquoise outfit though, and I must say I really, really like the outfit I found.  It is Linda from Purple Moon. I love the bright pattern and the full, flirty skirt of the dress.  With it, I am wearing a ruffled bolero sweater from G Field, The Pearl Rain jewelry set from Mandala, my hair is Britney from Catwa, and my makeup is Sparkle Mardi Gras from Chelle.  Happy shopping every one!

Mood by Alexandre

Alexandre has just released a new dress called Mood.   It has a full, ballerina style skirt, a ruched bodice, and a standup collar attached by two beautiful rosettes.  I am showing you Mood in Bronze, but it also comes in Plum and Bluete.  My hair is from ploom, my skin is from YS&YS and my jewelry is from Zuri’s.


52 Weeks of Color Part Deux~Folly

Well, this week I could not find anything in my inventory that was the color of Folly.  So I had to go shopping.  Oh darn. LOL.  I tend to frequent the same designers to this time I made an effort to vary to someone I haven’t visted in a while, and it was quite a successful trip.  I found my Folly, the Lollipop dress at Gizza.  I love the playfullness and femininity of this dress.  It is quite flirty and romantic, perfect for Valentine’s Day!  My hair is from Iconic, my jewelry is from Caroline’s and my shoes are from GField (custom tinted).

52 Weeks of Color Part Deux-Electric Indigo

Its week 3 already!  So far I am enjoying the challenge and I am determined to not get behind.  I was thrilled to find this very pretty dress in my inventory.  It is one of Jasilyn Amiot’s creations, Jazzy’s Midnight Blue, that she designed for her store, Jazzy’s Elite Designs.  She may call it Midnight Blue, but I consider it Indigo 🙂  My jewelry is Nova from Gems & Kisses.  My hair is Gina from Fab-U-Lous and my skin is Al Vulo’s Polly skin in cacoa.  This picture was taken in my garden and my windlight settings are Bree’s Appleblossom.

52 Weeks of Color~Coral

For this week’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, I found an adorable, vintage looking satin dress at Fishy Strawberry.  It is the perfect shade of coral!  I matched it with a vintage gold chain necklace from [glow].  Since it is winter in Ohio (my rl home), my coral dress felt a little summery.  So, I headed to GField to look for a sweater.  I was not disappointed!  I found this adorable, ruffled bolero in ivory.  I also found the perfect pair of coral heels and coordinating leg warmers!  What a perfect shopping day!  My winter skybox is from Magic Nook, my setee is from Awesome Blossom (closing on Jan 15th so having a 50% off sale right now!!), my hair is from D!va, my eyes are Bubblegum from Aphotic Gloom. My skin is Polly from Al Vulo, which I blogged here.  My lipstain is from CheLLe.
