52 Weeks of Colour Challenge - Aqua Island by Ayla

Another day, another colour catch up. Perhaps I went a few shades lighter than the example swatch, but I think you can still classify this as aqua. I even managed to co-ordinate with my sofa! Yeah, I know, it's a talent. Some people match up with their significant others, some their pets. Me, I blend with the furniture. Story of my life.

52 Weeks of Colour Challenge - Astronaut Blue by Ayla

I'm slowly getting back my blogging mojo and thought it best to catch up with the 52 Weeks of Colour challenge before I lag so far behind it would be impossible to keep up.  I went a bit artsy with this shot but I think I am happy with the way it turned out. I hope you like it too.

Wales is green, a nice bright green, and the perfect excuse to add to my Mon Tissu scarf collection.  I picked up the dress at Tulip during the Fifty Linden Friday sale.  Tulip is a store I'd never been to before, which is the very best thing about Fifty Linden Friday - introducing us to new-to-us stores!

Fifty Linden Friday Goodies

Fifty Linden Friday had some really neat stuff this week so I decided that I was inspired enough to blog again.  This gorgeous dress is from ISON and it comes in gold and taupe, I snagged them both. At $50L each you can afford to! The pose is from Flowey, aptly called Bad Habit.

Glam Affair's Cassiopea

Glam Affair released a new skin on Wednesday, and not just a new skin, but the beginning of a new line.  The skin tones have changed, and for the better, I think.  Shown is the third lightest shade, America.  I took the picture using one of Gogo's windlight settings that she kindly shared on her blog, JuicyBomb, the other day. Thanks Gogo, they're lovely!

Fabulous Folly and Big Heads

Do you ever buy something that is not really you just because it's fabulous?  That's what I did with this Lelutka hair from Hair Fair.  I took a quick pic in my Mon Tissu shorts, coldLogic top and SLink sandals.  The skin is Glam Affair's Roza, available at The Dressing Room for a limited time.  You'll see this hair again when I figure out how set it off to maximum gloriousness. 

OK, I have to brag just for a second.  One of my blog post pics, the Aqua Island, was chosen by Second Life as its pic of the day, yesterday.  I had my 15 minutes of SL fame!  Here's how to enter your pictures so you too can experience the glamour and thrills:

Join this Flickr group: Second Life Official, read the disclaimers and if you want your photo to be considered for use as a “Photo of the Day,” select the "Attribution" or "Share Alike" license in Flickr, then submit the photo to the group. 

Your SL and Plurk friends will applaud, you'll grin like a fool and your head will grow three sizes for a few hours.  Well, maybe that was just me.

22769 at the The Gallery Gift Shop

I know I am a little behind with this, as you all probably know I am on a little blogging hiatus, but if anyone if going to make me sneak one in it's the guys from 22769.  Here I am wearing a simple yet elegant gown, available at this months round at The Gallery Gift Shop.  You can also hunt for an envelope clutch bag to go with it. It'll be somewhere in the store.

Just Don't Cross Her

Callie makes another appearance today, she's got a score to settle with Ayla, and she'll do it in style. ;-) Her harem pants and top are from Les Petits Details, sandals and rigged mesh feet from SLink, and hair from D!va.  Watch out Ayla, she's looking your way!

Kind of Naughty, Kind of Nice

Callie, my alt, decided she needed to take a sexy picture for Clay Cowen who is only able to log in to SL on a text based viewer for the summer (waves and eyebrow waggles to Clay).  She's wearing the very sexy One Bad Pixel Cheong and her strappy heels from Nardkotix.  I let her go to Hair Fair and she loved Lamb's Blue Velvet hair.  The chaise in the picture is a photographer's pose prop from Diesel Works, bought at his 50% off sale!

Let's Noobify!

 When I went to Hair Fair the other day, having waited a few days for the rush to fade, I carefully stripped down to the basics.  No shoes, no prim eyes or lashes, no earrings, no mesh, no huds; nothing but shape, skin (with hairbase as a nod to my very large sense of vanity) a system tee and shorts from Tres Blah to cover my nakedness.  This left me with no scripts in the official viewer - other viewers are a minimum of one, in my experience, and a rendering cost of 1,000.  Minimizing lag to tool around Hair Fair is a good thing. 

I was surprised to find that my mode of dress was an extremely small minority.  I did see one other male avatar tooling around in boxer briefs.  Everyone else was dressed to the nines, or should I say 300,000 arc?  Charity events are a huge draw in Second Life, and I'm proud of that.  They are so much more fun for everyone if we all do our part to reduce lag for ourselves and others.  Some merely derender all the avatars.  That's fine as far as it goes, but not everyone knows how to do that.  Noobify yourself, leave the vanity for later when you put outfits together with all the new wonderful hair you picked up. Just for comparison's sake, the avatar rendering cost in the bottom picture is 60,726.  I didn't count the scripts, because I generally keep those fairly low with just an AO.

Roza from Glam Affair

Glam Affair has released a few makeup versions of the natural shade of her new skin, Roza.  For those of us who prefer this skin tone, it's a wonderful way to pick up beautiful skins at deeply discounted prices.  The Collabor88 Glam Affair skin I blogged a few days ago here, pale lips and almost no makeup.  The pictures today are a release for this round of The Dressing Room (second pic) and her store (top pic).  Hurry, they won't be out that long!

Deco Inspired

Ok, so you were thinking Art Deco, and I meant the store Deco.  This new Deco tutu skirt inspired me so much that I got it in two colors and made two looks to blog. The second look is all Deco from the color change hat hair to the shotgun shell necklace to the sweater and tutu!

I really like Deco, but I warn you, she has no demos that I can find and her women's mesh clothing comes in small, medium and large non-standard sizes.  The medium tends to fit me pretty well, and I haven't been disappointed.

Both poses and the background are from Glitterati, and they're inspiring in their own right!

52 Weeks of Color - Persian Rose by Dolly

I'm a girlie girl, I really am, complete with laces and satin ribbons and curls in my hair.  But I don't wear much bright pink.  It's a real life thing, I guess, it washes me out.  So, when a bright pink (or purple) turns up as the color of the week, I get nervous and I think I overdo it.  I tinted the wall, the flowers, the upholstery.  It's a wonder I didn't put on a pink hair!  I do think I managed the right shade for the dress, thanks to Celoe.

Hair Fair 2012 - Clawtooth and Wasabi Pills

I visited Hair Fair 2012 yesterday and was in my element. Hair is my vice, always has been, and I was like a kid in a sweetie shop. Clawtooth has become a favourite store of mine, the styles are so soft and feminine and I snapped up all their new releases and in the first picture I am wearing Serendipity. It's so gorgeous! I am fortunate enough to be on Wasabi Pills blogger list and I have all four styles and they are fabulous! In the second picture I am wearing Zoey - probably my favourite of their new ones, but I promise you the rest are amazing too!

Schadenfreude at July Collabor88

I think this is my last Collabor88 post for a week or so.  It was so darn good this month, and I haven't even shown all the goodies I bought yet!  This mesh dress and matching shoes from Schadenfreude has such a romantic summery look with the ribboned lacings and bows.  This girly touch is irresistible to me.  (happy sigh)

More Collabor88 Fabulousness

Barnesworth & Anubis have a fun attic apartment skybox for this month's Collabor88 with a fabulous view of Stockholm.  I feel I should get a dragon tattoo or something!  Instead, I'm indulging in the Hucci cropped pants and top, also at Collabor88, kicking off my shoes and lounging at the ample windowseat of my new skybox.

Bollywood Poses

 Ayla and I blog together but we're two parts of a terrible trio in our little part of SL.  AprilMae Devin is our third Musketeer. She makes oh-so-naughty animations for her store Alterior Motions, and a nice selection of static poses as well.  She passed me her latest set of poses called Bollywood packaged in a convenient two-button hud and available at her store and on the Marketplace.

I looked for a sari or harem pants to give me the proper Bollywood feel, but I'm currently obsessing over a new show on TV called "Bunheads" about ballet dancers and Vegas showgirls.  So instead, I'm practicing the moves looking like a ballerina in my sweatshirt, tights and ballet slippers.

New Releases from Mon Tissue and Celoe!

Believe it or not, I don't buy new releases just because they're new.  But I bought one of all of Mon Tissu's new clothing releases and splurged on a pair of Celoe's awesome sandals as well.  I wish I could have afforded the fatpack of these sandals, but at $950L a pair, I had to cover my eyes and press pay for just one pair.  I'll be leaving them on for awhile, though.  They're gorgeous. Other than my Celoe sandals, the Mon Tissu sweatshirt/sweater captured my heart for its worn 80's sexy look.  Think Flashdance, and, if you're old enough to remember, how we all cut the necks out of our sweatshirts to our mothers' chagrin!  The shorts are a well made summery basic that everyone should add to their wardrobe in one of the many colors offered.  I went with the white pinstripe for versatility.

The Dura hair is also new, and while you're there, join the group and pick up the very saucy unisex short hair that is a gift to group.  You won't be sorry.

It seems that I repeat myself in my color posts.  This time the repeat is the Celoe corset and hat.  I get some satisfaction doing just a splash of color, and there is nothing more uplifting to a woman's wardrobe than red shoes.  This particular pair is from a newer release from Mon Tissu, as are the sunglasses. The stool and coffee table in the background that totally make this picture for me are from Shi.
