Dress:  Riddle;  High Waisted Skirt w/ White Lace Mini Tank
Shoes:  Purple Moon;  Polka pumps, dirty black

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!

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.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Apricot

Skin:  Grixdale;  Ren, sugar, petal
Hair:  Truth;  Bree, champagne
Shirt:  Addict;  Nouvelle, peach
Shorts:  Tres Blah;  Denim cuttoffs, light
Boots:  Surf Couture;  Olea boots, worn
Necklace:  Mood;  Fallen Tears, gold
Bracelets:  Miel; Chum & Cheerno; Gold bangles (TFG)

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???

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Patriarch

Skin:  Nomine;  Aether, Deep water
Hair:  Damselfly;  Mila, beach beige  (tinted dark purple)
Ensemble:  Simone;  Fae, berry
Wings:  Material Squirrel;  storm wings
Face Paint:  Grixdale;  caustic paints

A week ago if anyone had told me there was a color called Patriarch, I would have laughed at them.  Really.  I get the whole logic thing of purple being the color of royalty and it makes sense that if there is a Patriarch color, it would be purple.  Who knew?

The whole ensemble (except the hair and face tattoos) is a look I put together 3 to 4 years ago for a fantasy event.  Even through several inventory purges, I’ve made sure to keep the pieces out and available because I still use them from time to time.  I’m not sure if some creators are still around or if the items are still available.  I do know Material Squirrel items were still available a few months ago because I bought a different set of wings there for my White color challenge look.

Prepped Up

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 01
Hair:  Head Mistress;  Wind in the Willows, blonde 1
Shirt:  Young Urban;  Black Sweatervest
Skirt:  Grixdale;  Lazy denim skirt, smog, dark
Socks:  Kyoot;  Lacey white knee socks, 2
Shoes:  Enkythings;  Ekota, black
Necklace:  Twisted & Spoiled;  Rosary Necklace (from the Demon Hunter set)
Bracelets:  Shiny Things;  Hippie bracelet & Stoned bracelet, hematite

I almost always go for the bombshell look and that’s definitely reflected in my inventory wardrobe.  But every once in a while, I come across an item outside my normal fashion preferences and my brain immediately starts putting together an ensemble centered around that piece.  Such was the case with this cute sweater vest  and shirt combination from Young Urban. This is one of my favorite go-to outfits when I need something in a hurry.  Its a little catholic school girl and a lot preppy.

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.
