52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Firebrick

Skin:  Pink Fuel;  Elly, Honey Pure
Hair:  Exile;  Drucilla, chardonnay
Shirt:  Jane;  Moody, deep v, delicious

Another hectic week, as evidenced by the fact that I haven’t posted anything in over a week.  Bad blogger!  I shall punish myself with a trip to Krispy Kreme.  It may not sound like a punishment, but when I step on the scale after eating them…it will be.

Touche

Skin:  Al Vulo;  Miha, soleil milk  (My Second Wardrobe)
Hair:  Exile;  Georgina, Chardonnay, roots
Shirt:  Touche;  Racer Tank, salt
Skirt:  Touche;  Gum Skirt, marmalade (La Venta Eventa)
Shoes:  Ricielli;  The Python set (The Dressing Room)
Necklace:  A:S:S;  Narayan necklace (My Second Wardrobe)
Furnishings:  Crackberry;  Taste of Fall set (La Venta Eventa)

Its so hard to believe that Fall is already creeping in.  Much slower in some places than others, but still visible on the horizon.  Its my favorite season (though I could do without all of the holiday stress) and recently its hues have become some of my most loved.  The golds, reds and oranges I used to avoid like the plague are now threatening to take over my wardrobe.  I had always thought browns so dull, but now they feel comforting and cozy to me.

This skirt and the furniture pieces combine all these shades I’ve come to adore.  I love that the hem and waist follow the circular patterns of the skirts instead of a straight crease, giving it a very delicate appearance.

The runner on the table and the throw on the bench are clickable to color-change, sticking with the autumn tones.

Bubblegum Weekends 2

Skin:  Mons;  Alessa, limited edition (TDR Blue)
Hair:  Exile;  Georgina, frost (tinted hot pink)
Dress:  Sticky Fingers;  My Little Zebra  (Lazy Sunday)
Shoes:  Berries Inc.;  Belinda pumps  (Lazy Sunday)

I had a difficult time with this week’s picture.  Since I don’t own much “bubblegum” hair, I thought I’d take one of the white shades and tint it.  The color came out right, but once I turned on shadows, the hair ends got very messy looking.

I was so focused on how the hair looked that I neglected noticing that I had forgotten to put on my auto-focus hud for my eyes.  So my eyes were looking off in all sorts of strange directions in each one of the raw pictures I took.

(Disclaimer:  For the picture, I did a lot of editing on the dress around the waist seam and the prim piece for the skirt.)

Finally Found: Ricielli

Skin:   Grixdale;  Teagan 2, Sugar, faun
Hair:  Exile;  Georgina, persimmon
Jacket:  R.icielli;  Gabriela military jacket, orange (TDR)
Top:  Riddle;  Mini Lace tank, white (part of High Waisted Skirt dress from my Second Wardrobe)
Pants:  R.icielli;  Sarouel pants, bw (Summer Hunt)

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.

I’ll Take a Vodka Please

Skin:  Laqroki;  Phoebe 2, Fair 01
Hair:  Exile;  Lady Versaille, vanilla roots
Dress:  Kyoot;  Vodka mini-dress, white
Bracelets:  Rozoregalia;  Hydra V 2&3

I was tp’ing around and picking up the things I wanted from the Fifty Linden Friday list and found myself in Kyoot.  I love the clothes, but can never seem to remember them during a fashion crisis.

As I was looking around and packing my inventory with more of the awesome things I’d missed, I found this dress.  Stunning!  Short (check), Tight (check), Sparkly (double-check)  I grabbed it quickly because I knew exactly when and where I was going to wear it.  (I love it when that happens)

Little Yellow Flowers

Skin:  Curio;  Airhead, Truth district gift
Hair:  Exile;  Bailey, Vanilla roots
Shirt:  Kyoot;  Sunday Girl, pear tree
Pants:  Kyoot;  Elbo trousers, taupe
Shoes:  Mstyle;  Rivea pumps, yellow flowers
Bracelets:  Cailyn’s;  Chunky cuff opal & Uzuri;  Ashan bracelet

I had a Kyoot attack a couple weeks ago when I found myself there to pick up these pants for Fifty Linden Friday.  As I was looking around, I saw this top in one of the ads and the pattern gave me a serious case of deja vu.  It took me a moment for it to click how perfectly it matches with my Rivea pumps from Mstyle!

I also thought I’d try out the gift from Curio for the Truth District opening.  I’m not sure about this particular one, but it has me interested enough that I put it on my list to pop over there to try demos of the newness offered.

Which also reminds me that I need to get over and check out Truth District.  I tried to avoid the opening madness because I dislike crowds.  Then RL intervened and it slipped my mind.  Now its on my list to go visit, hopefully later today.

Can’t Pass Up This Bargain

Skin:  Al Vulo;  Renzie, peacock tan
Hair:  Exile;  Aroha, vanilla roots
Shirt:  League;  Broderie Anglais blouse, off white
Pants:  Fri.day;  Checked Capri  (FLF)
Shoes:  Pixel Mode;  Fae Wedges, white
Bracelets:  U & R Dogs;  Missa Luba, gold & Mandala;  Kabuki, silver

I’ve been cutting back quite a bit in my shopping lately and being more discerning about the items I pick up from the bargain lists.  Instead of just tp and grab, I check the blogs, look at the pictures and actually ask myself if I would end up wearing it.  If the answer is yes, then I tp and grab.

Such was the case with these super-cute capris featured on the Fifty Linden Friday list last week.  These were available in a solid and this plaid and though I don’t normally wear patterned pants, these were just too cute to pass up.  By the way, did I mention how cute they are?

Also on my must have list since I saw the ad in my inbox was this top from League.  Very soft and feminine looking.  So very much not my usual style, but I’m spreading my fashion wings lately.

And look!  Another of my treasures from Hair Fair!  This year’s offerings from Exile were top-notch and I’m full of love for the rooted textures they’ve started offering.

In These Shoes?

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 11
Hair:  Exile;  Temptest, champagne
Shirt:  Utopia;  Ursula, 07
Pants:  G. Field;  Capri jeans, black
Shoes:  Slink;  Lulu, black

I don’t normally blog brand new items because there are a gazillion other bloggers that do that.  But just occasionally, there comes out an item that I must have and I must wear and then other factors convene and its like fate telling me I must blog it as well.  Such is the case with these new Lulu shoes from SLink.  I didn’t want to take them off, even when we’re tromping through a forest.

And the fate part?  I bought my second pair of Lulu’s Sunday before we went to Elegance Ballroom.  One of the singers sang “In These Shoes?” by Kirsty MacColl.  I liked the song and the next day I went to YouTube to find it and happened to notice in one of the comments that she had died.  Off to Google I went and found her very sad story and the injustice her death in Mexico received.

I don’t know if this is an official video or a fanvid, but it has good sound quality and you can enjoy the song:

Finally Found: So Many Styles

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 01
Hair:  Exile;  Caitrin, Vanilla roots
Dress:  So Many Styles;  Floral Tulip dress, blue
Shoes:  Pixel Mode;  Fae Wedge, Khaki
Necklace:  Miel;  Cue necklace
Bracelet:  Twisted & Spoiled;  ChiChi bangle

I actually first found So Many Styles a few weeks back when we did the “I Let My Boyfriend Dress Me” challenge.  Xan had chosen one of the skirts from there and I put it on my Places To Check Out list.

I was looking for something to wear Friday evening and went to my handy list.  After about an hour shopping there, I ended up with so many cute options to wear that I had trouble deciding on one.

The floral dress reminded me of some of the 80’s fashions I grew up with and it was a big hit with the boyfriend.
