52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Khaki and Moss Green

I’ve done so many catch-up posts for the 52WoCC, but it’s never a drag to do a color combo post! It’s actually a lot of fun to try to incorporate two colors (that can be very different) and see what the final look is. I had the challenge of combining Khaki and Moss Green, which compliment each other very well!

It’s nice to finally be back around Second Life and blogging – I’ve had pneumonia for the past two weeks, which is why I’ve been so MIA. It’s crazy to think that we don’t have many weeks of this challenge left! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

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!

The Dressing Room & My Second Wardrobe

Who doesn’t love some bargain shopping?

The Dressing Room and The Dressing Room Blue have been my main sources of affordable fashion for a long while now, and in my humble opinion many other “bargain shopping” places haven’t quite cut it for me – either that or I just keep forgetting to visit them. Today I was on Kaelyn Alecto‘s site when I saw her post on My Second Wardrobe, of which I had never heard. All I have to say is THANK YOU Kaelyn, I am in love with the dress I found there, pictured in the above left. And, of course, the left is my favorite look; I’m not sure why, but it feels unexpected and a tad edgy to me. It may be the boots, or maybe I’m simply crazy. Which one is your favorite look?

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Lemon

Lemon!

Yay for matching the color swatch of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge! I always get so excited when I get close to the actual color. :-D

Well, here is my outfit for this week’s post. I have always wanted to wear this skirt, but never quite knew what to pair it with: this week I think I finally figured it out. Of course, what would an outfit be without a pair of Paper Couture tights, which happened to perfectly coordinate with my skirt. I’ve had these boots from Reek for a long while now, and always seize the opportunity to wear them. And, finally, my necklaces: League created pure perfection with these brown layered necklaces!

Just a sidenote, this skirt came as part of an outfit from a DU Narcissus item last year. I’m not sure which shop it’s from, so so sorry if you wanted to know!

Have a fabulous weekend!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Mahogany

Not much of a challenge this week! :-D

This new hair from [elikatira] just makes me feel so… retro. Does it do the same to you? Going along with the whole retro feel, I grabbed this shirt from the new summer collection at LeLutka, which I love! Slightly more expensive than my typical budget, but worth it!

Have a great weekend!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Periwinkle

Week 25 already!

My, how I love this week’s color! Though my dress is of a more teal hue, I still consider it periwinkle – one of the prettiest shades of blue out there! And, of course, this is one of the more beautiful dresses I have stumbled upon in SL, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to use it for this post!

I love the eclectic sense of this outfit. Two of my favorite bloggers, Liliana Barrs and Anya Ohmai, sport this style perfectly, and I must admit that this outfit was inspired by one of Anya’s Flickr posts {check it out here}. So adorable! I will definitely be trying out this style more often in the future.

Well, that’s enough of my rambling for one day. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

Patterns, patterns, patterns!

Today, I bring you a mash-up post full of – you guessed it – patterns! Spring trends this year are bright, colorful, and have many patterns involved, so that’s what I’m showing you guys today!

The outfit on the left is very 70s inspired, which is another look that’s coming back as well {but let’s not get into that quite yet – another day!}. I simply adore this cute little shirt from Tres Blah for the Seasons Hunt: Spring! P.S., if you haven’t started that yet, start hunting! Many great items to find!

Next, the dress worn in the middle is sporting another popular spring trend – feathers! I think this piece has a lot of potential to be matched with a nice sweater, some leggings, whatever you want. Unfortunately, I didn’t have anything in my Inventory that went with it very well, so I just added some heels and let it be!

Finally, my favorite outfit/pattern of all – the outfit on the right! I don’t know why, but I just love something about this particular outfit. The shirt from Mon Tissu is so perfect and well-made and the rest of the outfit coordinates so nicely! :)

Have a fabulous week!
