52 Weeks of Color – Coral

Shangri La Style 1-15-2012

When Luna announced the color of coral I didn’t find anything coral in my inventory so I was left browsing the tons and tons of items on market.   I pleasantly came across this skirt which I purchased.  I hadn’t realized how long it was and when I put it on I knew the Coral pumps from Hucci that I had weren’t going to work so I went to find a shirt instead.  I ended up coming across this cute top from The Sea Hole but with the shape of the neckline and style of shirt with the skirt it wasn’t working… paired with this white crop jacket though, it’s perfect.  Then was the dilemma of shoes… at this point I’d already purchased the skirt and top so I was hoping to find boots in my inventory and I tried on a few pairs before it clicked. “I KNOW WHAT BOOTS!” I blurted out to my mom and co-blogger.

Bah Humbug to Monday.. but yay for more MESH

I’m going to ramble a bit and then get to the point.  I tried going to sleep at a reasonable time last night and after laying in bed for 4 hours I gave up.  Came on SL and surprise, I guess today was Christmas for me because I got these totally awesome new MESH MESH MESH dresses from JANE.

Please ignore the quality of this photo, that’s actually what the title of the post is about.  Anything that could go wrong trying to take this photo did.  I’m having the worse issues with my graphics and I don’t even know what to do anymore.  OpenGL issue with a GTX 460 card. Anyone else having this problem or had that can help me troubleshoot that would be awesome.

Anyway, to the point… How totally cute are those boots?  While I was digging through my inventory to find the right shoes I got the Lelutka notice for these new boots so I went over and grabbed them and my look was complete.

The Magic of Mesh <333

I was nervous about mesh, I’ll be honest.  Tonight with the newest release from Janie Marlow, I’ve fallen in love with mesh.  How incredible is it that we won’t have sculpts going through our little avi bodies anymore! I’m totally siked!

ADDICTed to Bloom Dolls 6/12/2011

I was part of the lag that hit Surf Co. when the lovely Emma Gilmour released these adorable big headed dolls that we’ve come to love called Bloom Dolls.  I immediately purchased the one I thought was best fitting to me before dragging my other two blog partners over to get one as well for a future joint post.

Another wonderful person in my life, Kianna Noel, design of ADDICT has released these really cute dresses in a variety of colors called Luna.  I wanted to share the dress with you but I couldn’t pull it off on *me* so I thought it’d be a good time to bring out my Bloom Doll and pretty her up.  Here are the results.

New Truth Hair 6/10/11

Pretty casual look here. I was hanging with one of my besties, Icey and we decided to do a quick picture together. I am wearing one of the brand new Truth hairs just released today. This one is called Danni, and comes with a streak option as well. Also shown one of the Fifty Linden Friday goodies available all day for only 50L. These vibrant blue eyes from Hoot were a steal. Hoot has 4 color options available so hurry before the day ends they will no longer be 50L. Thank you to Icemocolo Voom for taking this pretty picture of us for the blog.

Comfort 6/10/2011

Typically we post clothing and skins here but today I’m going to break the unwritten rules.  I bought this pose from Glitterati some time ago but hadn’t gotten to use it until last night.  This is probably my favorite pose that I have in my inventory.  It is comfortable and looks so natural.

Practicing..

I mostly wanted to post this photo to share the pose but also the image.  When I started blogging it was because I take tons of photos and I never do anything with them more than upload them to Flickr.  Blogging was a way to “show off” some of what I do from shopping for clothing and hair to poses and the obvious, taking photos.

Frilly Vest 5/31/2011

We apologize for the delay in updates the past 10 days or so, we were both on a bit of a hiatus while I was on RL vacation and mom was building a new house.

Grixdale is becoming a frequently blogged shop from me and I must say I’m very thankful to be part of the blogger group of the store.  I really do love most of what comes out in the store and although this look came together by off chance with some of the new releases from that shop I really wanted to show off my new shoes!

I can’t say that I’m guilty of going through all the shoe fair sims or that I even purchased more than a handful of items but I absolutely love the pair of shoes I purchased from Pixel Mode.  The proceeds of this shoe went to the charity www.soles4souls.org which “collects new shoes to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and collects used shoes to support micro-business efforts to eradicate poverty”.

Shangri La Style 5-29-2011

The shoes went as a good accessory to my bit of a quirky look today.  I put on a dress from Grixdale and decided it matched well and as I was thinking of a location for the photo I remembered how I always loved the Malt sim owned by designer Khea Karas.  I ventured over to the sim and decided to peek in to the shop to see if I could possibly throw anything over the thin straps of this dress since I always was a fan of Khea’s outerwear.  That’s when the frilly vest came into play which actually became my favorite part of this outfit second to the shoes.

The last thing I wanted to rave about is how adorable this skin is.  I like a very soft and natural skin and I’m so picky about them.  The only ones I’ve ever truly loved were from Exodi and Dutch Touch.  They are the only skins I wore for more than a few days but this Grixdale skin has been on me since it was sent to the blogger group.  Also it was extremely easy to tint the skin to match… truth be told I didn’t have to alter one of the preset skintones on the shoe HUD which makes these shoes even better for me!  This is the darkest tone which was sent.  I’m typically a bit more tan than this and I’m starting to think maybe that is what was making tinting sculpted feet such an impossible task but for now this is the skin I’m in.

I grabbed a closeup of my ensemble as well to show you the face of the skin and the adorable jewelry which I received from the Virtual Fashion Feed Blogger Group that I recently was accepted to be a part of.

TDR Blue Mashup 5/15/2011

I meant to get this blog up earlier but I’m kind of an airhead and locked myself out of my Flickr.  I cannot remember the password for anything today so I’m just going to upload it inside of WordPress to share with you all.

The skin and earrings were from TDR blue and the hair is from Pia from Truth.  The top is from Grixdale and is a re-release and the jeans were part of an outfit by Sandie Saenz that I randomly found while searching Marketplace.  The best part is that the entire outfit, jewelry included was just 199L.

Hair & Lashes Oh My 4/23/2011

I meant to ramble on about these gorgeous eyelashes in my last post, but I thought I would save it for another post.  I really wanted to feature the skin in that post.  Now ere we are in the next post so let me just tell you these lashes are really great!  They look amazing on and are incredible to fit.  The creator really has gone the extra step to make these the absolute best lashes that I own.  They are gorgeous and the scripting allows you to obtain a perfectly flawless fit (unlike what is shown in the photos).  I’m still working on getting the perfect fit for me but I wanted to share them with you now because I just couldn’t hold back anymore.  I found these lashes on the style card of the shape I purchased from Juicy.  They are made by Framboise Werribee and are a staple to my avatar now.

Shangri La Style 4-23-2011 Hair

Today’s Truth hair release was ever so convenient since taking the eyelash photos would require a closeup shot.  I grabbed this hair called Hazel from the new release and I’m really glad that I did.  It frames my avatars face so elegantly and the curls are just so soft, I really love the way this hair looks.  It’s a pretty versatile style as well so you can dress it up or down to create an elegant look for an evening out or to dress up some jeans and a tank like I’ve chosen to do.
