52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Liver

I think the biggest challenge with this week’s color was not necessarily finding it, but making it look… pretty, haha. When you first hear Liver, let’s just say that pleasant images don’t come to mind. So, I paired my Liver-colored top with a pinky red skirt and called it a day. When does pink not make things pretty?

Have a lovely weekend!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Chartreuse

Week 42.

Whenever I see that a certain week’s color is very bright, bold, and eye-catching, I tend to do color pops instead of a complete outfit in the designated hue. And that’s what I did this week, of course! Chartreuse brings back memories of lime green, but it is definitely more on the yellow and olive side of the green family. This week I decided to use a helpful resource – the search button on Second Life Marketplace. The rest of the story is history: this outfit was born.

One of the first results from my search was a couple of The Sea Hole clothing items, which made me extremely relieved! Surprisingly enough chartreuse didn’t give me a very hard fight, and I was in and out of The Sea Hole, outfit in Inventory, in less than 5 minutes. All I had to do was figure out which hair and shoes to sport and I was finished! I love both the top {which is actually a bodysuit} and skirt, and I can see myself getting my money’s worth out of them in the future.

I hope chartreuse didn’t give you too much of a struggle, and I will see you all here next week!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Jazzberry

Feeling summery this week.

I love the color that is titled “Jazzberry” this week. It’s like a magenta/plum/fushia, but in any case it’s beautiful. Surprisingly enough I didn’t have too much trouble finding this color, either: all I had to do was stop by Collabor88, and voila! I love this top from Boom, it feels so bright and summery.

I’m also wearing my newest hair favorite this week; “Breeze” by Elikatira, also for Collabor88. The hair is pure perfection, go pick it up for only 88L per pack while it’s still available!

I hope you have a fun-filled weekend! <3

Fashionably Late

Fashionably Late.

I don’t usually go for complete outfit packages, and when I do I typically mix-and-match the outfit with items I already have in my Inventory. Not to say that these two pieces aren’t great mix-and-match items – they definitely are! This particular outfit by Vive9, however, is an exception to my typical routine: I love the way it was put together already! Not much work for me, but sometimes it’s nice to have a little break. ;-)

I know Fashionably Late is being blogged constantly lately, but I couldn’t resist the temptation to share my own experience with you. I was impressed by the quality of the items and stores represented there, I would definitely recommend checking it out if you already haven’t. I would blog an adorable dress currently available there, but Kaelyn Alecto and Gogo already beat me to it! Check out their posts for more info and styles inspired by Fashionably Late!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Melon

Hello, Melon.

It’s been a busy week – busy in the sense of vacationing. I was away this week {trying to get the most out of my summer before I go back to school}, and it was lovely. I knew beforehand that I most likely wouldn’t be able to get a color challenge post up this weekend, but better late than never! I’m glad I waited – I may have missed out on some of these wonderful items.

First, the hair. Elikatira is, by far, my favorite place to purchase all things hair. What I love best is that the releases are weekly, too; I love logging in to a new hair each week. This hair is absolute perfection, thank you 50L Friday. <3

Next, my shirt {another 50L Friday item!}. I adore Kyoot‘s clothes, and when I saw that this top was tint-able I knew I would wear it for this week’s post. Plus I had no idea what to wear anyway! ;-P  This chilled out look represents how I feel as I return from my relaxing vacation, but now I’m back and ready to blog for the next two weeks as much as possible.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Patriarch

{Patriarch}

Ah, patriarch – such a rich, royal color, if I do say so myself. I had an urge to wear something modern but classy this week, and this dress is perfect. Also, have you ever noticed how well purple goes with red hair? All those redheads out there are lucky ducks! I’m glad I have SL to express my inner fire. ;-)

I also have been loving this hairstyle this week; if you haven’t already noticed, I wore it in my summer Seasons Hunt post {here}. It’s so carefree and cute, I adore it! Elikapeka Tiramisu always does a wonderful job at creating any hair our SL heads desire.

All right, my weekly ramble is over. Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

The Seasons Hunt ~ Summer 2011

Hello all!

Today I’m blogging about the always loved Seasons Hunt. This summer I feel as though the hunt was revamped and had many more high quality items than previously seen for this hunt, which is great! You can’t complain – amazing items for L$0!

I decided that the best way to do this was to create a few different outfits showcasing the various items available in this summer’s hunt. Enjoy!
