52 Weeks of Color – #30 Aqua Island

The color for week 30 is Aqua Island, which looks like a muted version of Aqua to me. Everything I had in my inventory was either too bright or too teal so I turned to marketplace. I found this lovely vintage style swimsuit in which there are so many shades of blue, one of them just has to be the right one.

It’s going to be all about vintage the upcoming weeks, Vintage Fair is almost upon us. Brace yourselves!

A Day in the Country

The other day one of my plurk friends asked us plurkers to suggest a styling for her. Play Barbie if you will. She was too lazy to dress herself that day, you know how it is? Anyway, I’m always up for a challenge so I put together a cute little outfit for her. Then it turns out she doesn’t like green. Well, I like green, so I took the outfit for myself.

 

It felt like something a city girl like me would wear heading out to the countryside, so I went to T-Town to shoot these pictures. T-Town is a really gorgeous build, perfect for photos, but there is one small problem. No scripts allowed. I can’t tell you how extremely annoyed I am at script limitations on sims. It means I can’t use my HUD’s and without my HUD’s I can’t control my poses, my eyes, my hands, my emotes. Drives me batshit.

Normally I would just leave and not take any pictures at all. Here’s a question for you; What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to places to shoot in?

 

Earlier this week it finally came. After aaaages of teasing, Glam Affair finally released their new skin Cassiopea. I’ve been waiting for this skin for quite some time, I’ve felt the itch to switch skins, but I wanted to hold out for this one. It was totally worth the wait. The new Artic skin tone is perfect for me and those red lips? I wouldn’t go anywhere without my red lips. I added in a mock eyeliner and some lashes from Glam Affair to get just the look I wanted.

A Scheduled Appearance

You have to love the pre-schedule function in wordpress. It’s what allows me to blog this awesomeness even though I am most likely lying on a beach or playing soccer with the kiddos right now. It’s like magic!

Before I went off I took a round at Collabor 88. This month has some truly great stuff and I left… well, with a much lighter wallet. Even though I don’t have anywhere to rezz a skybox for living in (I live in a Linden Home), I bought this one from Trompe Loeil. I figured I could rezz it in sandboxes and use as a prop for my photos. It really is quite gorgeous and outrageously cheap.

I also grabbed this flirty top from Ingenue. I find myself back at Ingenue over and over again because I am just in love with the things there. So many of the pieces appeal to me and fits in with my style. If you have not been to the sale yet, I suggest you get a move on.

52 Weeks of Color – #29 Persian Rose

Again with the bloody pink. Everytime there’s a pink hue I have to dig so deep in my inventory they would call it excavating. Anyway, this hue is called Persian Rose and is quite startling for the eye. Yet i managed to find a few pieces in the same neighborhood and as always I ended up kinda liking it, despite the colors.

One Voice

One Voice is a fundraiser in support of Curio’s Gala Phoenix. You have probably already heard about the enormous clusterfuck that is this story, but just in case you haven’t… Well, The Blogging Elf has a great write-up of what has happened. The funds raised at One Voice will go towards the legal costs for Curio to get her name cleared and her livelihood back.

I ran as fast as the lag would allow me after these booties by Gos. I have these in black already, but this deep red is my favorite color, so I had to have these as well. I paired them with a skirt from Ingenue that you can also find at One Voice. You can get these goodies and many more until the 22nd.

52 Weeks of Color – #28 Astronaut Blue

Yay! I’m finally caught up with the colors. Week 28 brings us Astronaut Blue, which is truly a gorgeous color. I went to the sale at Ingenue the other day and this dress was just perfect for the task. It’s partial mesh, which you should know by now I am a big fan of. It means you get that sleek look of the pencil skirt, but the skirt still moves with you when you cartwheel (or whatever you happen to do in your dresses).

Off to Camp

The RL version of me spends a couple of weeks each year volunteering at a summer camp for children.
I use to go to this camp myself as a kid and when I grew up it only became natural to don the role of counselor. This camp is by the sea, so I’ll be spending a lot of my time staring at kids while they swim. Don’t worry, I’ve been to the lifeguard class. Twice.

I’ve scheduled a few posts to pop up while I’m gone, because this place have no computers and no internet. Not that I would have any time whatsoever to use a computer had there been one. Camp is 24/7 and the only down-time you get is on the toilet. If you’re lucky.

I decided to dress up the SL me in a typical beach outfit for this post. This is not how the RL me looks at the camp beach though. At camp there is little room for fashion and you must always wear the dreaded first aid fanny pack. It’s bright red. -brr-

Jokes aside, I love going to camp and I’m sure this year will be just as fun as last year.

52 Weeks of Color – #27 Cadium Red

I’m still playing catch-up here with the colors. Almost there, almost. Last weeks color was Cadium Red. I’m fond of all the red hues, they make me feel sexy and dangerous. So I decided to go all out on that feeling and picked together this very vampy outfit. I feel like something out of True Blood, just missing the fangs.

Dinner for One

It’s been quite a while since Veenya was asked out to dinner. She’s not bothered though. She’s a 21st century girl and is quite capable of taking herself to dinner. The best part about going to a fancy restaurant is not, as you may think, the food. It’s the excuse to get dressed up to the teeth. And dessert. Must not forget dessert.

I picked up this corset and skirt at ISON for last weeks Fifty Linden Friday. No worries though, it is up at retail price now, along with a slew of other colors. I’m a big fan of this ensemble because it is both sexy and classy. You may want to wear pasties under though, at some angles the nipples tend to say “Hi, Hello” to the outside world.

The pumps from Redgrave are really exquisite and quite versatile. You can recolor the heel, toe or main part of the shoe in 12 different color, which gives you endless amounts of combinations, fit for any outfit you may have. I did find it challenging to match the skin of the feet, so I’d recommend trying a demo first, just to make sure you can do it.
