YAY GREEN!!! I was so glad to see this color, so glad in fact that this blog was written on Wednesday morning and published today! Green is actually a color that I have tons of in my inventory, but instead of blogging something old I did a play on the new-ish and wonderfully sexy Naomi dress from Hucci. I normally cover up and wear these sorts of dresses as tunics, but I couldn’t resist showing a little leg!
Cerise. The color that I mostly avoid. Sure, I probably have tons of hot pink in my inventory because I have a crazy need to have an item in every single color available but I hardly ever wear this color. This week I tried to present a different interpretation of cerise that wasn’t Barbie or girly and I ended up with a very different urban styling than my norm. Thank goodness green is next week’s color.
Besides boho fare, I am also an 80’s fashion fan. I guess this stems from having a young mother during that time and watching her get all dressed up in the latest fashions of that time. I’m pretty sure she had an outfit like this.
In an effort to keep Shangri La Style moving and to get me in some sort of schedule, I decided to participate in Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color blogger challenge. Grey is one of my favorite colors, so this week’s challenge was easy for me. The hard part was trying to take a picture with shadows without crashing.
I have a big ass. Well, not as big as some who have shelves trailing behind them, but its big. In fact, my shapely derriere was the reason why I always was the lingerie girl during my SL modeling days. It was also the reason why I don’t model anymore; most SL modeling agencies want you to be able to hula hoop with a cheerio and I was unwilling to become a stick figure. Also, without my booty I wouldn’t be able to pull off sleek outfits like this one.
A few months back I shocked my friends and family by shaving my shoulder length relaxed hair to a short cropped natural style. Today, I decided to try to recreate my short cropped hair in SL. A bonus of having short cropped hair is that it draws attention away from the hair and towards the outfit.
