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???

Sometimes the Wait is Worth It

Skin:  Pink Fuel;  Elly, milk, angelic
Hair:  Clawtooth;  Pretty Words, snow
T-shirt:  Tres Blah;  Used raglan 4
Shorts:  Maitreya;  Jean shorts, faded
Socks:  Jane;  Lil piggies, rugby knee hi, milk
Shoes:  SoReal;  Superstars, white/blue/red
Bracelets:  League;  Wanderer & Miel; Chum bracelets

I love being a tomboy every now and again and this raggedy shirt is perfect for those casual days at home.  I saw this shirt on one of the “bargain” lists  (FLF, SBS, TOSL…I honestly don’t remember which one it was) and I knew I had to have it.

I love Tres Blah items, but I always seem to have a problem rezzing items in that sim, so I don’t go very often.  It makes me kinda sad that most days I don’t have the time or the patience to deal with all that, but for this shirt it was worth it.  I was able to put together another new casual favorite for days when I just don’t feel like getting all dressed up.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Lemon

Skin:  Pink Fuel;  Elly, milk, angelic
Hair:  Truth;  Pandora, champagne streaked
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, ocean
Shirt:  Indyra Originals;  Kaegan Cowl Necked Jersey top, aurora
Shorts:  Maitreya;  Jean shorts, faded
Bracelets:  League;  Wanderer & Miel;  Chum

I went pretty much down-to-the-wire with this week’s challenge due to some RL issues and I’m just now writing the post to go with the picture right before I publish it.

Thank goodness Lemon was easy enough for me to assemble.  Not because of an abundance of yellow items, but just the opposite and only having a few in my inventory.  I’ve always felt that as a blonde, yellow tones kinda washed me out.  Its only been recently that I’ve been picking up a few here and there.  I have so few yellow items, I actually had to go back to my pictures for Yellow, Goldenrod, and Banana to make sure I hadn’t used this top before.

I finally gave in and got the Elly skin from Pink Fuel and I’ve got it ranked among my top two favorite skins in my inventory.  I’ve also been branching out with my eyes, using Aphotic Gloom (instead of my usual Negaposi) and in shades other than green.

I’m excited about next week’s color, Patriarch, a rich royal purple!

More From the Mansion

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 1
Hair:  LeLutka;  Loose, sweeden
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, watermelon
Lingerie:  The Whore Mansion;  Neglige Intimate
Bracelets:  League;  Wanderer bracelet & Miel;  Chum bracelet

When I made my first trip to The Whore Mansion last week, I picked up several items, some that all modesty prevents me from highlighting here.  But I can show off my new lingerie.  It looks so comfortable and soft, I wish I had one like it in RL.

My new Chum bracelet from Miel and the Loose hair from LeLutka are quickly becoming part of my go-to wardrobe.  And for a great bargain…the Watermelon eyes from Aphotic Gloom were only $ 1 L on Marketplace!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Celadon

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 11
Hair:  LeLutka;  Knotted, sweeden
Eyes:  Leezu;  Deep Reflection Eyes, green
Tshirt:  Jane;  Layering Tee, celery
Long Sleeve Shirt:  Jane;  Sheer Layers, eucalyptus
Jeans:  Twisted & Spoiled;  T&S jeans, antique
Scarf:  Jane;  Floret tie, avocado
Jewelry:  League;  Wanderer bracelet & Miel;  Chum bracelet

Until this week’s color challenge, I had only heard “celadon” in reference to the beautiful jade-colored Chinese Song Dynasty pottery pieces.  It was a challenge to try to put together a look that would fittingly represent the stunning pieces I remember seeing.

Can I also say how much in love I am with this hair from LeLutka’s Hair Fair booth this year???  It comes with tattoo hair bases that specifically match each shade in the color pack.

As you can see, I’m still practicing with SL shadows.  I’ve found a few Windlight settings that seem to work well with my style.  I do alright against a studio backdrop, but they don’t seem to show as well when I go out into the wilds of a sim.

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.

He Does Like To Shop…

So surfing around the SL blogs, I run across the sites by Lourdes Denimore and Salvatore Otoro where they both discuss the challenge they undertook that originated on the Beauty Riot blog called Dare:  I Let My Boyfriend Dress Me.  They took a cute concept, adapted it for SL and came up with a great experiment I wanted to undertake.

So I approached Xan with the idea (though “approached” makes it sound like he had a choice).  More like I begged him to help me with this blog post by shopping around and finding me a complete outfit to wear.  He readily agreed until the anxiety set in when I pointed out I’d need hair, shoes and accessories.  I took pity on him and pointed him to a couple of the blog feeds to help him get the names of women’s clothing stores.  Instead, he fell in love (lust?) with one of the outfits and decided to try to re-create it himself.

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, medium 9
Hair:  LeLutka;  Inverted, glucose
Top:  Mon Tissu;  Lace crop top, white
Skirt:  So Many Styles;  Floral high waist skirt, blue
Belt:  Miel;  Cali cords, black
Lingerie:  Mon Tissu;  Floral lingerie, black
Socks:  Kyoot;  Lacey white knee socks, lace 2
Shoes:  Pixel Mode;  Baby T’s, black
Jewelry:  Mandala;  Necklace & Bracelets Pearl Rain, onyx

He did an admirable job copying the look and putting his own spin on it, creating something I would have never chosen myself, but ended up liking anyway.  And because he was such a good sport and completed the challenge on a very tight deadline I set for him…I also took a picture without the top and skirt, modeling just the lingerie.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Eggplant

subtitled:  The Uninspired Eggplant

Skin:  Curio;  Lustre, Petal, Patina 2
Hair:  Anaphora;  Nikole_Bole (from The Fashion Garrett)
Dress:  League;  Hitch Dress, Purple
Feet:  Slink; Jolie Pied v2.0 Barefeet
Jewelry:  Miel:  Ahi Necklace

My sis, Bubbles, says I’m an overachiever because I usually have my color challenge picture done by noon the day its announced.  Not this time.

I’m not sure what it was about the egg(plant) and I this week because I normally love purple.  So here I ended up, sprawled on a porch swing in pretty much nothing but a dress feeling unimaginative and uninspired.  No fancy editing, just a few tweaks so I didn’t look like a jigsaw puzzle.  *Sighs*

Edited:  Since I’ve had a couple comments about it, the swing is the Patio Swing from Cool Beans.
