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.

Go Tigers!

Skin:  Al Vulo;  Miha, soleil, milk (My Second Wardrobe)
Makeup:  Insufferable Dastard;  Fade gloss, grungy 6 (Grunge Soul Project)
Hair: Elikatira;  Charmed, blonde 07
Shirt:  LouLou&Co;  Tigers, red
Jeans:  RedMint;  Jeans, No. 3 cuffs
Shoes:  Clutter;  Merribeth sneakers, Kat is Boring
Tattoo:  Waffle!;  Joie de Vivre tattoo

I actually had to reshoot this look three times!  The first time was my fault.  I didn’t notice the pose I was using made it look like the shoulders were sloping downward and I had that lollipop shape going on.  Even though I’ve been using different shapes and skins in my blog pictures, that wasn’t the look I was going for.

The second time, SL was having a nervous breakdown and all the shots came out black, which I didn’t notice until three days later when I went to edit them.  Grrr, hate it when that happens.

Third time was the charm.  Though I would have tried as many times as it took because I totally love this shirt.  Its something I’d wear myself in RL either around the house or running errands.  I also love the combination of the Al Vulo skin and lip makeup layer from Insufferable Dastard too.

Cynfully Sweet

Skin:  Al Vulo;  Miha, Soleil, milk
Hair:  RedMint;  No. 01, argent (male hair)
Makeup:  Insufferable Dastard;  Fade Gloss, grungy (Grunge Soul Project)
Shirt:  Cynful;  Zone’s Off Shoulder top (Lazy Sunday edition)
Tattoo:  Waffle;  Joie de Vivre

I took this picture and was in such a hurry, I forgot to copy the styling notes.  Of course I’d forgotten when I logged in again and immediately changed clothes.  So I had to go back and try to rebuild the information from just looking at the picture.  I apologize if I got some wrong (especially the skin since I have at the very least over 1000 skins).

I forgot to list the necklace.  Its one I snatched quickly from LouLou & Co. as I was getting something else on sale.  Its called Odysee and this is the ivory version.  I love the detailed beadwork and the way the fit lays.

I’m Just Peachy

Skin:  Sorry.Asia;  Rurutia, august
Hair:  Shag;  Thai Me Up, roots afterglow
Shirt:  Stellar;  Brynn, peach
Shorts:  Stellar;  Bermuda jeans, peach
Shoes:  Clutter;  Merribeth sneakers, Kat is Boring
Bracelets:  League;  Pearts and Lace, pastels
Tattoo:  Waffle!;  Love neck tattoo

I’ve gone sale list crazy since returning home and figured I’d better start featuring some of the items I’ve been snagging.  I’m pretty sure everything but the tattoo is from one sale or another.   As I was putting together the list for the styling information I realized that I should have recorded which event each item was from.  My bad.  But I have started doing it since that light bulb flashed, so you’ll see them in the future.

Xan and I are taking a vacation in Second Life, so maybe by next week I’ll be able to show you some of the exciting things we have in store on our itinerary!
