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~Tea Green

Well, I didn’t find this week’s color, particularly difficult, however photographing it turned out to be the challenging part of this blog.  My hard drive died not long ago, and I have a brand new computer and I am using the new Exodus viewer, both of which are making my life a little difficult LOL.   Since I have my new computer and have started using Exodus, it is much easier for me to wear mesh now and I love it!!!!  This dress is Fling from Chain and Vine.  If you haven’t visited Chain and Vine, they have some very nice mesh pieces.  My hair is Eva from Catwa, my skin is Lyra from Dream Ink, my jewelry is the Lia Crystal set from EarthStones, my eyeliner and eyeshadow are from Chelle.  My shoes are from G Field.  I am done traveling for a while and my computer is fixed, so I will be blogging more!  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~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~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).
