52 Weeks of Color – #25 Unmellow Yellow

Week 25 brought us those pesky yellows again. I’m not a fan, as I’ve said before, but I like this outfit anyway. The skirt from The Sea Hole proved to be a great accent to all that yellow.

For some reason I always seem to be dancing in my yellow shots.

52 Weeks of Color – #24 Raspberry Glace

Well, I dropped the ball on blogging. I just didn’t feel like it and I’m not going to force something out, that would defeat my purpose for blogging. But today I was bored and figured I could give it a go again. Catching up on some colors, since I’m a bit behind. Week 24 was Raspberry Glace.

Day 10 – Best Bit of Your Weekend

One of the odd things I have on my bucket list is to attend a derby at the Kentucky Derby. Not that I have the least bit interest in horses, but because I want to wear a fancy hat and a gorgeous dress and look all classy. Completely shallow and irrational, but none the less.

I don’t expect this to be something I can do IRL anytime soon, so I decided to take it to SL. Finding a suitable place turned out to be easier than I thought. I went to Champion Horses Race Grandstand and it looked exactly as fancy as I wanted it.

My outfit is a little something I picked up a while ago at Purple Moon. I didn’t know what I wanted it for, I just knew that I wanted it. It has this wonderful vintage feel that worked pretty good with my chosen theme for this Sunday outing. I helped matters along a bit by applying a sepia toned filter to my pictures.

Day 9 – Your View Today

I purposely went to find a gorgeous sim to take this picture. I live in a Linden Home Sim so my regular view is dull with a bunch of houses just like mine. I asked on plurk and they led me to this sim called Saerlaith, which is a residential sim with some gorgeous cottages and landscaping. You’re not allowed to roam in to the houses, but I took this picture from the lighthouse I found.

  

52 Weeks of Color – #23 Pistachio

For this weeks color, Pistachio, I decided to play around a little bit with projectors. Cajsa over at It’s Only Fashion has great post on how to work with projectors, if you want to check it out. I liked the effect it brought to this photo, a little gloomy ambiance for my well deserved cocktail hour.

Day 8 – Six O’Clock

Todays theme for the Photo A Day June is Six O’Clock. So at about ten to six am (SLT) this morning I went to random Destination Guide sim and snapped a few photos. I ended up at Brussels which seemed to mostly consist of a huge square with some gothic inspired  buildings. I didn’t explore much because I was on a schedule. Six am approaching quickly.

I’ll admit I had my outfit ready from the day before. I picked up this sweet looking dress from CIA at the CHIC² event. The black bolero is a free gift at the same booth and it looked pretty damn good together. Again, I want to warn you that the skirt on the dress is sculpted, so perhaps not meant for the bendiest of AO’s.

The necklace with a clock charm was a gift from a friend of mine a while back. It’s from chronokit and has an actual working clock that you can set to any timezone you want. I didn’t see it available in store anymore, but they have tons of watches in different styles, so I’m sure you’ll find one you like there.

Day 6 – Hat

When I was planning the picture for the theme hat, I got so inspired I had to make a whole outfit with it. I may or may not have gone a tad overboard with the red though. Though some say you can never get enough red.

I had no idea where to shoot this sultry looking outfit, so I hopped over to Second Sites. There I found this gorgeous looking chapel and it felt almost sacrilegious walking in there wearing all scarlet red.

“I’ve come to confess my sins. Do you have a week?”

This gorgeous looking dress is from Geometry for the CHIC² event. It is the reason for my scarlet inspiration, I saw it and just went with it. Grabbed a pair of shoes and clutch from Hucci to match.

The jewelry from Je Suis is part of my prize for getting in 3rd place at the Truth District contest. I saw it and knew it would be just the thing for this outfit. A red lipstick from Pekka and I was ready to go.

Busy Bee

For the month of June I have more things booked in than I have had all year. June is the season for weddings and as a side effect comes the bachelorette parties. Oh Joy, drunken brides to be!

It also happens to be a month for many many birthdays in my circle of friends. It’s going to be one of those months you come crawling out of like a zombie.

As if that wasn’t enough I’m also doing the Photo A Day June challenge. I like challenges, it keeps me on my toes and forces me to be creative. Something I need from time to time.

With this sense of being busy like hell, I felt this pose set from Bounce This was appropriate. It comes with a take away coffee, a smart phone and 4 poses. It really looks like I’ve got a million things to do, doesn’t it? Well at least I look fabulous doing it.

I bought these gorgeous shoes from SLink the other day. I’ve had my eye on them for a while, but I wasn’t sure if they were my style. They are a bit daring for the likes of Veenya. But I figured, what the hell, I’ll make it work. And i think I did.
