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!!!!

The Vintage Fair-Dilly Dolls

When I received this new dress, Delilah, from Dilly Dolls, I was inspired to try to style it as a Rockabilly look.  I have been seeing tons of blog posts for the Vintage Fair, but nothing Rockabilly…so here is my attempt 🙂  What is Rockabilly?  Well, modern day Rockabilly style imitates and somewhat modernizes the original style worn in the 50’s.  The original Rockabilly style was made popular by artists such as Elvis, Buddy Holly, and Bill Haley that sang music that was a combination of Rock and Hillbilly (Country).  Delilah is the perfect dress for Rockabilly.  It has the sweetheart bodice with a touch of cheetah print, and a nice full skirt that accentuates a tiny waist.  My hair is Pin Up from Vanity Hair.  This is called a Victory Roll Hairstyle.  The name comes from a fighter pilot maneuver, and was a wildly popular style in the 50’s.  Ladies would sleep with pin curls in their hair all night that would result in rolls in the hair.  The rolls would then be pinned into elegant styles. My tattoo is “Such is Life” by Glue Ink.  My retro sunglasses are from Dark Mouse.  My pearls are from Earthstones and my skin is from Exodi.

Introducing Uni by Vero Modero

This flirtatious gown is Uni by Vero Modero.  I love love love this dress!  Once I styled it, I didn’t take it off for three days!  I love how sexy and feminine this dress is!  My hair is Minerva by Vanity Hair, my jewelry is Siddean by Mood.  My nails are from [love soul].
