52 Weeks of Color-Part Deux~Dark Raspberry


I love this weeks color, Dark Raspberry!  It is such a pretty combination of pink and purple 🙂  I found this beautiful dress, Rusalka, at PurpleMoon.  I thought this was a pretty unusual name for a dress, so googled it.  According to Wikipedia, a Rusalka originates from slavic mythology and was a female ghost, water nymph, or mermaid-like demon.  Well, I am pretty sure that Poulet Koenkamp meant for us to look like water nymphs when we wear this gown 🙂

My skin is the newest release from Dekade, Bridget, in tan.  This skin is very pretty, but I find the shading and makeup to be a little too subtle for my tastes.  My hair is Romance from Vanity Hair, and my jewelry is Amanra from Kunglers.

Sooo I changed the layout on my blog.  Did you notice?  Do you like it?  I think I am going to change the fonts..these are the defaults and they really look impersonal and flat 😦   I am not sure when I am going to have the time to make the changes, but if you log on and everything looks all wackydoodle, you will know that I am up to no good again!  Have a great week everyone!!!!


52 Weeks of Color Part Deux~Alice Blue

Well, so far, Alice Blue has been the most difficult color for me.  I search for ‘Alice Blue’ in my inventory and of course, nothing came up.  Then I remembered this beautiful gown I blogged a while back for Agnes Finney’s My Precious.  The gown is called My Preciousness and it is a lovely confection of lace and ribbon.  With it, I am wearing Alienbear’s Princess Felicity jewelry set and my hair is Love Song from Exile.  My skin is a special Valentine’s Day Skin that is a group gift form Mons.  Hit the group subscriber and its yours 🙂

Vero Modero~Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

As part of their winter collection, Vero Modero has released three stunning formal gowns.  The first gown is Mistwalker.  It features a dramatic collar and tail with a bright satin skirt.  With it, I am wearing hair from W&Y and jewelry from Gems & Kisses.

The second gown is mesh gown called, Zoe.  It features a straight neckline, very full sleeves, and a long straight skirt. My hair is from Catwa and my jewelry is from Mandala.

This beautiful gown, is called Deeta.  It has beautiful silver embroidery on the bodice and skirt.  My hair is from Catwa and my jewelry is from Mood.

New Mesh from Siss Boom

I have not done a lot with mesh because I was not fond of any of the mesh-compatible viewers, until Phoenix updated theirs 🙂  Now, I get to play with mesh too!  Yay!!  I must admit, it is pretty darn cool!  I love the way it lays on my avatar’s skin, not in it.  Anyway…onto the beautiful dress I am wearing.   This curve hugging gown is Tempermental from Siss Boom.  It features a lovely skirt overlay and a sheer wrap over the shoulder.  My hair is Argentina from Osmose, my jewelry is Desiderio from Mood.
