For The Boys 2

Shirt:  Kal Rau;  Plaid shirt M4
Jeans:  Blitzed;  Combo Jeans, tone 3
Shoes:  Eg+Redgrave;  El Ganso sneakers, 007 black canvas

Xan always comes through for me.  I told him that I needed another “For the Boys” look (with a heavy load of *hint hint hint*) and he showed up with this ensemble.

The turned up cuffs with the plaid-accented jeans are just so cute and always remind me of the 50’s James Dean look.  Add the plaid in the layered shirt (which is actually all on one layer) and now I have The Lumberjack by Jackyl on auto-repeat in my head.  Who knew a chain saw could be a musical instrument??

Disclaimer:  In the interest of full disclosure…I didn’t see until I was editing the picture that there is a very noticeable seam showing around the waist.  I did not edit it out (which is giving the perfectionist in me twitches).

P.S. – Just a little note that I’m on vacation and away from home until Friday, August 4, 2011.  All posts published during this week have been previously edited and awaiting publication in my Drafts.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Jade

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, medium 10
Eyes:  Leezu;  Deep Reflection Eyes, Turquoise, large
Lashes:  Redgrave;  #14, feather
Hair:  YunA’s;  # 38, platinum 01
Dress:  Utopia;  Frida, emerald, shirt C w/ shoulder caps and single scarf option
Jewelry:  Mandala;  Kabuki, silver phoenix

This week’s color was jade and while I know it comes in other shades that are just as beautiful, I decided to stick with the classic green that everyone seems to associate with that color.

I had some other photo series work in progress and kinda procrastinated doing my look and I am so glad I did so I could use this new gown from Utopia called Frida. It comes with five (yes, FIVE) different tops, two scarf options, shoulder caps, necklace and even a tiara!  It can go from looking like a classic slinky formal gown to an asian-influenced futuristic look.  I tried to go for a look somewhere in the middle of the two.

I kept with the general Asian feel and accessorized with Mandala’s newest set of bangles and nails, Kabuki in silver.  Though you can’t see them, I was wearing the Coquette shoes in silver from Indyra Originals.
