Go Tigers!

Skin:  Al Vulo;  Miha, soleil, milk (My Second Wardrobe)
Makeup:  Insufferable Dastard;  Fade gloss, grungy 6 (Grunge Soul Project)
Hair: Elikatira;  Charmed, blonde 07
Shirt:  LouLou&Co;  Tigers, red
Jeans:  RedMint;  Jeans, No. 3 cuffs
Shoes:  Clutter;  Merribeth sneakers, Kat is Boring
Tattoo:  Waffle!;  Joie de Vivre tattoo

I actually had to reshoot this look three times!  The first time was my fault.  I didn’t notice the pose I was using made it look like the shoulders were sloping downward and I had that lollipop shape going on.  Even though I’ve been using different shapes and skins in my blog pictures, that wasn’t the look I was going for.

The second time, SL was having a nervous breakdown and all the shots came out black, which I didn’t notice until three days later when I went to edit them.  Grrr, hate it when that happens.

Third time was the charm.  Though I would have tried as many times as it took because I totally love this shirt.  Its something I’d wear myself in RL either around the house or running errands.  I also love the combination of the Al Vulo skin and lip makeup layer from Insufferable Dastard too.

Riddle Me This

Skin:  Grixdale;  Ren, Sugar flame
Hair:  Shag;  Voulez-Vous (roots) fox
Dress:  Riddle;  High Waisted Skirt w/ White Lace Mini Tank
Shoes:  Purple Moon;  Polka pumps, dirty black
Bracelets:  League;  Pearl and Lace, pastels

Another short one today (and not just the dress).  Just about everything in this ensemble was from either a sale or an event, though I put this one together before my epiphany about recording which ones.  Live and learn!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Jazzberry

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 09
Hair:  Shag;  Thai Me Up, roots bombshell (Project Themeory)
Gown:  Vogue;  Martika, wine
Bracelets:  Mandala;  Milky Way, E and G
Earrings:  Yummy;  Diamond Spray earrings

I had originally selected an entirely different dress and style for my Jazzberry post.  Then Xan and I were having one of our ballroom nights and it dawned on me that this dress would fit the color perfectly.  Since I hadn’t shown a formal dress in a while, I went with this one.

This is actually the first gown I’ve purchased from Vogue and I love it, especially the adornment on the shoulder.  Even though the color is “wine”, its definitely lighter and one you don’t see very often for formal dresses.  The Shag hair was released last weekend and I had to have it!  So glad I popped in when I did to grab it because I ran into a friend I hadn’t talked to in a while and got a chance to catch up with her.  Win!

Cynfully Sweet

Skin:  Al Vulo;  Miha, Soleil, milk
Hair:  RedMint;  No. 01, argent (male hair)
Makeup:  Insufferable Dastard;  Fade Gloss, grungy (Grunge Soul Project)
Shirt:  Cynful;  Zone’s Off Shoulder top (Lazy Sunday edition)
Tattoo:  Waffle;  Joie de Vivre

I took this picture and was in such a hurry, I forgot to copy the styling notes.  Of course I’d forgotten when I logged in again and immediately changed clothes.  So I had to go back and try to rebuild the information from just looking at the picture.  I apologize if I got some wrong (especially the skin since I have at the very least over 1000 skins).

I forgot to list the necklace.  Its one I snatched quickly from LouLou & Co. as I was getting something else on sale.  Its called Odysee and this is the ivory version.  I love the detailed beadwork and the way the fit lays.

I’m Just Peachy

Skin:  Sorry.Asia;  Rurutia, august
Hair:  Shag;  Thai Me Up, roots afterglow
Shirt:  Stellar;  Brynn, peach
Shorts:  Stellar;  Bermuda jeans, peach
Shoes:  Clutter;  Merribeth sneakers, Kat is Boring
Bracelets:  League;  Pearts and Lace, pastels
Tattoo:  Waffle!;  Love neck tattoo

I’ve gone sale list crazy since returning home and figured I’d better start featuring some of the items I’ve been snagging.  I’m pretty sure everything but the tattoo is from one sale or another.   As I was putting together the list for the styling information I realized that I should have recorded which event each item was from.  My bad.  But I have started doing it since that light bulb flashed, so you’ll see them in the future.

Xan and I are taking a vacation in Second Life, so maybe by next week I’ll be able to show you some of the exciting things we have in store on our itinerary!

Sooo much catching up to do with shopping and hunts and sales!!!  I ran over and did the Summer Hunt at Ricielli and found some really cute things (luckily its not too difficult).  I’m not sure why I’ve not shopped there before, but the detailing on the clothing is incredible!  I’ll have to take some more leisurely shopping time there in the future.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Apricot

Skin:  Grixdale;  Ren, sugar, petal
Hair:  Truth;  Bree, champagne

Shorts:  Tres Blah;  Denim cuttoffs, light
Boots:  Surf Couture;  Olea boots, worn
Necklace:  Mood;  Fallen Tears, gold

Since I just got home from vacay and I have this obsession with posting my color challenge pics on Saturday, its another short and sweet one.  I read about the closing of Grixdale while away and made sure to swoop in and grab a few of the discounted skins while they were still on sale.  Technically, the shirt is peach, but visually the same as apricot, right???

Finally Found: Kik Hair

Style:  Nina, platinum

I only check the feeds about once a week and even then its usually only the first page, just to see if there’s anything else new that I absolutely must have for my wardrobe.  I’ve noticed in the past couple weeks through the Hair Fair coverage that [kik] hair has been mentioned a lot.  *squeees*  Another hair designer find!

Style:  Bennett, blonde

I love the first time I go to a new-to-me store and come across so many must haves that my Linden dollar balance goes into shock from massive hemorrhage.

Style:  Fiona, platinum

And I really heart when there’s just so many things I want that I have to mentally rein myself in and make a vow to come back to buy more later.  That was the case with Kik hair.  After almost five years of wearing pixel perfect hair, its a really nice change to come across some well-done messy styles.

Style:  Fine I, platinum

Other items in pictures:

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 01
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, ocean
Lashes:  LeLutka;  2011 curl lashes
Shirt:  Berries Inc.;  Racer top, rose
