Utopia Again

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 01
Hair:  Catwa;  Sumaya, V2, swedish
Dress:  Utopia;  Alena, silver (with bangles)
Bracelet:  Mandala;  Milky Way bangle, white

I needed another formal gown for our Sunday evenings at Elegance Ballroom and I was surfing through Marketplace when I ran across this exquisite dress from Utopia.  It shimmered in shades of silver, from bright white to metallic gray and offered a few different accessory options.  I went with the necklace and bangle (seen on my extended arm) combination.

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:

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.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Pink

Hair:  Truth;  Odette, champagne
Shirt:  Utopia;  Lola, pink
Skirt:  Leezu;  Zarah Flexi Skirt, soft white
I completely forgot to write down my style notes and I can’t remember which skin this is or the bracelet.  So sorry!

In my real life, I’m very much anti-pink.  Not because I dislike the color, but because any shade of it looks hideous with my skin tone.  So while in SL, I do tend to go a little pink-crazy.  There was no way I’d be able to choose between all the luscious pink goodies in my inventory, so it was imperative that I go shopping and buy something new (at least that’s what I tell myself).

I actually found this beautifully frilly lace top on Marketplace and dropped everything to go to the store in person.  It actually comes in a set with jeans, but I felt it called for something softer and I had just bought this skirt in several colors.

In other news, Shoe Fair 2011 opened today.  I was lucky enough to be one of the randomly drawn bloggers to gain access yesterday.  Unfortunately, even without all the crazed footwear shoppers my computer crashed every couple of booths, usually before anything had rezzed.  So I gave up.  Yeah, I suck.  But I have gotten a couple of blogger packs and I’ll show those off over the next few days.

The proceeds for selected vendor items do go to a fantastic charity (soles4souls.org) and its worth it to go check out all the yummy creations that make our toes so happy in SL.  There are four sims which will be open from May 14-27.  Here are the tp points provided:

Iridium  Ruthenium  Osmium  and  Rhodium
