Dark Raspberry

… week 8 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Dark Raspberry

After seeing this week’s colorswatch, I immediately thought of this sweater. But after that my inspiration ran completely dry. I had put a lot of my creativity in my Valentine’s post and I must have used it all up.

Joining Plurk this week, probably didn’t help my creativity either, because I spend a lot of time trying to find my way around there. Time I should probably have put into this post. Oh well, you can’t do it all πŸ™‚

So for Dark Raspberry I went with this casual look. It’s a combination of old and new items. The freebies are pretty old and are probably not available any more.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

… and I’m wearing a kimono!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I’m not a Valentine’s Day hater, but I do sometimes get tired of the amount of stuff they want to make us buy. Am I really showing my love for my husband by giving him a heart-shaped pillow? Don’t think so… That said, I do enjoy some of the Valentine’s stuff that has been hitting the grid the past few weeks. Second Life just lends itself so well for going all out in red, pink and hearts. So this year I decided to join in.

I’ve never worn a kimono before. I mainly avoid them because I know nothing about them. And really don’t want to… put them on backwards or something. But after spotting this cute heart-print example, I had to give it go. And after reading the accompanying notecard I realised it’s wasn’t actually a kimono, but a Yukata. Just to illustrate that I don’t know anything about kimonos!

But anyway… Happy Valentine’s Day!

  • Hair – Esk-Imo (ziekling.bunnyhug)
  • Skin – Grixdale (tyr.rozenblum)

Folly

… week 7 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Folly

Apparently Folly is a color one-fourth of the way between crimson and rose, closer to crimson than to rose. In any case, it’s not a color I normally wear. So I went shopping.

After buying the shoes and the shirt (it’s actually a dress), I felt I needed something green to make this outfit a bit less… pink… red? Anyway, I remembered seeing a green pair of pants at Lee. This is a new store that isn’t really open yet, but has a few teasers for sale. After trying it on I CAN say I really like the color andΒ  texturing. But the shape! It’s rigged mesh and the shape is just completely wrong. The legs are extremely skinny and it has a serious case of “horseshoe pelvis”. Now I know there are people out there who like that kind of thing, but it’s not for me. But anyway, I liked the color, so it did wear it. But with a pose that made it look a bit better.

Southpaw necklace

To finish this post, I wanted to highlight my necklace. It’s by Southpaw and is the current VIP-group gift. It comes with a HUD that let’s you change both the metal and the gems, so you can match it to any outfit. AND it’s cute!

Alice Blue

… week 6 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Alice Blue

This week’s colour had me baffled. The swatch looked exactly like white to me, but the name said it was blue?! I seriously questioned my sanity, until a bit of quick research revealed it was indeed blue. Just extremely pale.

I didn’t really have any items in this kind of white blue. So I choose a shirt by Pig, in the palest kind of blue I could find, and paired that with white clothes and blue accessories. If you’d throw it all in a blender (without me ofcourse!) it would come out a perfect Alice Blue.

A bit of coldLogic

… because I received my first blogger preview pack ever! Excuse me while I do a very silly dance around my pc. *does happy dance*

coldLogic

Okay, I’m back. Sorry about that…

So what is coldLogic? Well, in case you haven’t heard, it’s a new store that will be opening it’s doors on February 1st. It’s a combined effort by Damien Fate, Janie Marlowe and Zyrra Falcone. And it will be bringing us mesh-based designs. All the clothes use the Standard Sizing and, while it of course depends on the shape you use, the items I got fitted me pretty well.

To avoid a really picture-heavy post, I’m just going to show you my personal favourite for now: the Cohen jumper in moss. The belt is part of the outfit and is also mesh. This outfit really made me long for a nice spring day.

So, in a couple of hours, tp over to coldLogic, and get your hands on some mesh-goodies!

Patina

… week 5 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Patina

This week’s color is patina, which is apparently a word to describe a sheen onΒ wooden furniture produced by age, wear, and polishing. Sounds to me like a fancy word for ancient dirt. But I’m of course no furniture expert. Patina can also describe a green/grey tarnish that forms on the surface ofΒ bronze and similar metals, produced by oxidation. Which obviously brings us to this week’s color.

I found this a difficult color to find, and I didn’t quite hit the mark with this dress, but it’s close enough. I combined it with a jewellery set by Sweet Leonard that I bought ages ago, but completely forgot about.

I also got myself a pair of G Field‘s new rigged-mesh boots. They are available in lots of colors, but my wallet made me buy only the black ones (for now). Luckily they come with a HUD to change the color of the laces and trim, so they are easy to match to different outfits. Even to a patina one.

Iron

… week 4 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge part II.

Iron

I couple of months ago I wrote about the pain of having to do a complete re-install of my computer. Well… I’m about to do it again. Not because I tripped over the electrical cord again. Even I am not that clumsy. But because for some reason my e-mail is completely messed up, and I have no idea why.

Everything worked mine last night. But when I tried to read my e-mail this morning… forget it. Every time I try, the program tries to start but then it just gets slower and slower… and slooower… until the whole thing gets stuck and I have to reboot. I tried to re-install the e-mail program. Tried to restore Windows to an earlier state (or something like that… I’m not exactly good at this stuff, but I stumbled across the feature and thought it might be a good thing to try). I even got my poor husband to try to fix it. (He is good at this stuff, but has very little patience).

So before the poor guy went completely insane and tried to eat the desk or something, I made a back-up of the most important stuff and will just re-install the whole thing. I hate doing that, especially because everything else is working fine. But jumping through hoops to get to my e-mail from now on, seems pretty stupid as well.

So basically, if this blog is quiet for a while, I will still be installing…
