52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Periwinkle

Skin: Laqroki;  Phoebe2, Fair 08
Hair:  [69];  Olivia 03, Platinum blonde
Dress:  Grixdale;  Sun of a Gun, Vintage Doll, Lilac
Jewelry:  Earthstones;  Inlaid Link Bracelet, Lapis

Okay, so this week was tougher than I thought it would be when I originally saw the color chip.    I went through every last piece in my inventory that could even remotely be considered Periwinkle and found nothing.  The abandoned clothing heap continued to grow with things that were discarded as being either too blue or too purple.  I can’t believe I was defeated so easily by my own inventory.  Oh, the shame.

The shopping therapy I prescribed myself was almost immediately effective when I ran across this beautiful “girly” dress at Grixdale.  The lilac was close enough to a periwinkle that I just claimed artistic license and ran with it.  And how lucky was it that 69 just released this super-cute braided hair with a color-change scarf!  So here’s my one obligatory “woman in field in flowery dress” picture.

Next up in Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge – Tangerine.

Edited to add:  I was going to share the playlist I used when editing this picture and completely forgot.  I wanted the picture really soft so I assembled the music that makes me feel that way, mostly a lot of slow, bluesy tunes.

Gravity ~ John Mayer
Let It Be Me ~ Ray LaMontagne
Tupelo Honey ~ Wayne Toups
