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~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].

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.

Tons of Newness from Vero Modero!!!

Now Playing…

‘Cause we all wanna be big rockstars

And live in hilltop houses, drivin’ fifteen cars

The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap

And we all stay skinny ‘cause we just won’t eat

And well, hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar

Hey, hey, I wanna be a rockstar!

52 Weeks of Color~Silver

Ok, I know I am posting this out of order, but oh well.  I am struggling with Cerise, but I should have something later today 🙂

My shirt is from Adiva.  It is part of the Studio 54 Revolution set. It looks like one of those doilies my great grandmother crocheted, however I am pretty sure my great granny would not have crocheted me a shirt like this 😛  If you haven’t heard, Annejoy is closing Adiva.  So all of her outfits are 50% off through the end of January.  Soo sad to lose such a great designer!

I am wearing the shirt with Poison Black leather pants from XTC Leather.  These pants are  curve hugging and absolutely perfect!  They are available in many colors and the price is excellent!  My earrings are from [glow] and are called No Round Earrings.  (I liked the combo of the squares and rectangles with the circles on the shirt lol).  My bangles are from YS&YS and my nails are from [love soul].  My lipstick is from [dekade] and is called red lips 02.  My hair is Aida from Glam Affair (Beauty Avatar for those of us that have been around a while).
