52 Weeks of Color Challenge: TCWSNBN

Skin:  Mons
Hair:  Truth
Shirt and Pants:  Cynful  (subscribo gift)
Shoes:  Berries, Inc.

An extremely hectic weekend makes me later than usual with my post and with incomplete styling notes, but oh well.  This week’s color makes me physically ill just thinking of it, so it will be known as The Color Which Shall Not Be Named(Click on the link to Luna’s post if you really must know.)

I went with the shading from the color swatch again instead of what I associated with this shade in my mind.  Probably a good thing since it allowed me to actually put together the outfit, shoot and edit the picture without yakking up my breakfast.

Bubblegum Weekends 1

Skin:  Al Vulo;  Miha, soleil milk (My Second Wardrobe)
Hair:  Truth;  Gabriel, granny (Collabor88)
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus special edition, currant

This is my first go at Bubblegum Weekends, simply because I just don’t own too many unusual hair shades.  But I picked up this style from Collabor88 and since it was a fatpack, I had all sorts of bubblegummy colors to choose from!

I just went very simple to start with, though my mind is already teaming with ideas for future posts.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Chartreuse

Skin:  Al Vulo;  Miha, soleil, milk (My Second Wardrobe)
Hair:  Truth;  Gabriel, champagne (Collabo88)
Dress:  Waffle;  Racerback dress, lime green
Earrings:  Zaara;  Anjami chandelier earrings, gold (Platinum Hunt)

Chartreuse and puce are probably tied for my least favorite colors.  I own no chartreuse anything.  See up there in the styling credits for the dress where it says “lime green”?  We’re going to pretend it says “chartreuse”.  You all have great imaginations.  I know you can do it.

Color interpretations can be relatively subjective.  In my head, I’d always seen chartreuse as more of an olivey shade with some yellow thrown in for good measure.  The swatch given by Luna in last week’s post looked more like lime green.  So I found two outfits, took and edited two pictures, then decided which one I wanted to use.  The other one was yesterday’s blog called So Sparkly!.

Next week’s color is Liver.  Is it gray?  Is it brown?  Either way, I get nauseous just thinking about Liver.

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???

The In Skins

Hair 1:  Catwa;  Sumaya V2, platinum
Skin 1:  Curio;  Candy, Moonbeam, dark Sugar Town 2

Two skin releases have been causing a stir lately.  The first from Curio is Candy and its very sweet.  I absolutely love the makeups and the detail in Curio skins.  I usually don’t wear Curio because the face shading always seem to be too light in comparison with the body and I just prefer it to be not as visible.  But a tip I read from another blogger said the lighter skin tones weren’t as noticeable.  I would give credit with a link to her blog, but I can’t for the life of me remember who it was.  Apologies!

I popped over to Curio and tried on some of the moonbeam shades and it was true enough!  I adore the Candy line and I’ll certainly be going back to try demos in the lighter skin tone for some of the other newer releases.

Hair 2:  Truth;  Bree, champagne
Skin 2:  Baiastice;  Nina, porcelaine, makeup 8 brown

The next skin is from Baiastice.  I’m not very familiar with this brand and in fact didn’t even know they made skins, so it was a pleasure to find them.  The faces for Nina are stunning in their beauty!  I think I need to adjust my shape a bit and scale down the lips some because they seem a bit too full.

I also learned a very valuable lesson when skin shopping:  Don’t wear hair that covers the sides of your face and cheeks when selecting the makeup style.  The heavy extended eye-line would be gorgeous with darker hair or complexion, but is way too much for my pale skin and blond hair.

Other items in pictures:
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, ocean
Lashes:  LeLutka;  2011 Curl lashes
Shirt:  Berries Inc.;  Basic shirt, lemon
Earrings:  Purple Moon;  Roses, vintage copper

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!

Fishy Strawberry Freedom

SkinBelleza;  Aiko, pale 10 with Pale Lip 7
HairTruth;  Jean, champagne
DressFishy Strawberry;  Tropic of Cancer, red
ShoesSLink;  Lulu, red
NecklaceByKay;  Aizza necklace
BraceletsEarthstones;  Diamond Tennis bangle, fire opal and gold &  Uzuri; Amazone bracelet, bronze

You know a dress is top-notch when the boyfriend is almost speechless, like when I wore this red-hot new release from Fishy Strawberry.  I also had to wear my new Truth hair and the red dress gave me a good excuse to go buy the Lulu shoes in another color.  Why, oh why do I not just buy the fat packs right off???

I’d also like to wish America a very happy birthday today.  As someone who traveled a lot in the past, I was required to visit several countries, many of them allowing very few personal freedoms.  I’m very thankful and proud to be able to call myself an American, not just today, but every day of the year.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Independence Day !

Timeless Classics: Mimikri

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 10
Hair:  Truth;  Sonya, champagne, streaked
Dress & Gloves:  Mimikri;  Diva
Shoes:  Donna Flora;  Milva, black & silver
Earrings:  LaGyo;  Moonlight earrings
Ring:  Rozoregalia;  Bouhachi set, ring
Bracelets:  Loulou & Co;  Enigma & Mandala;  Pearl Rain, onyx

There are a few clothing creators that truly understand fashion and know how to make items that will have lasting appeal and wearability.  One of these is the designer behind Mimikri.

I’m not sure of the actual creation date of this outfit or when it became available.  I do know that I acquired it almost exactly three years ago.  And after three years, its still in my inventory.  And not only is it still in my inventory, I still wear it, like I did here last Friday evening.

I have several pieces of Mimikri still in my inventory from around the same time that I do still wear.  I consider them well-crafted and classic.  With a little work of making a skirt-shape, the system skirt can still look fabulous.
