Finally Found: G. Field

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, medium 9
Hair:  Exile;  Caitrin, Stefani roots
Top:  G. Field;  Floral Halter top, lime
Capri:  G. Field;  Capri Jeans, white (not shown)
Shoes:  Mstyle;  Rivea pumps, yellow flowers
Jewelry:  Cheerno;  bangles, gold & EarthStones; Diamond Tennis bangle, gold

I must have been living under a rock to NOT have known about G. Field!  I finally found them during Shoe Fair when they released those cute Vilda boots.  I had put them on my list to go visit the mainstore, but hadn’t gotten around to it yet.  Then I got a notice about a new clothing release.  Wait, wut?  They do clothes too! 

I immediately raced over and spent over an hour grabbing clothes and of course, more shoes.  This top was one of my selections and after wearing it, I can say I’ll be going back to get more colors because its absolutely adorable!

Also newly- released is the Rivea pumps from Mstyle in leopard print and floral options.  I’m not too big a fan of prints of any kind, but I completely fell in love with the floral.  Unfortunately, the fatpack is for both sets of prints, so I’ll have to go back and buy all the other floral colors separately.

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.
