Color Me Turquoise

CMP TURQ 2 FULL copy CMP TURQ 2 HEAD brighter copy

The turquoise theme of Color Me Project is going on and this dress from Sofie's Selection, I am hooked on. I am going to be cautious here because I was recently told by a designer that I should not be offering opinions or viewpoints that are my own or relevant to only me, that I should remain neutral and/or positive in all the things I blog. I think this kind of defeats what a blog is, but please be assured anything I do blog it's because I LIKE it and I LIKE this dress a lot. it's sexy with it's cut out sides and slit at the leg, low cut and the hood makes me feel a little mysterious. The low cut allows for adding a statement necklace and it's wide enough in the hood that earrings can be worn as well, that's a win/win! The hud that comes with the dress gives you choices of patterns all keeping with the turquoise theme and the very cool shoes are from this round of Color Me Project and were created by Sky. The shoes have some great details and are  made for Slink Feet or TMP feet. I really hope more designers will start creating for my Maitreya feet as well so I don't have to keep switching feet back and forth, the shoes however were worth the trouble. A quick note on the eye makeup, 90% of the time when I add a eye makeup layer to my outfits it is from Elymode, the reason why is because I love the options the choice of colors and style, and that she creates not only the over the top stuff but basic cat liner is colors that don't overwhelm and just accent, I get to keep looking like me with the addition of some color, YAY! Thank you Ely! All the rest of the outfit is listed below.

Color Commentary


I love color, nevermind that I usually am always dressed in black, I actually love color. Being a RL artist and art educator my life is filled with color and that's probably why I was attracted to blogging for Color Me Project. Every round is a different color and gets me out of my black comfort zone. The upcoming round opening on the 25th is turquoise. There is some really cute things in it, this skirt and top are from zOOm and it's cute and quirky with it's tribal print. The skirt has a high waist, is short and tight adding some sex appeal to the whole outfit. I really think I may have to start being more purposeful in adding color to my every day wardrobe! I added one of my new favorite pairs of shoes, ECHIUM from Glamistry, I mentioned them in a earlier blog where I wore an all ivory pair but when you buy the fatpack with ALL the colors, you get so many color combinations you will be wearing these endlessly. The snakeskin accents create a pop of color that just makes them unique and fun to wear. The hair from [monso] called Min is available at Kustom9 as well.

Lazy Sunday

Lazy Sunday

It took my a while to even get around to writing this and the photo is meh, because today really has been a lazy Sunday but at least I can be lazy and look good doing it thanks to my Gizza Scarlet Dress and VG Shoes. I picked up the GizzA dress at the Chapter Four event and actually got two of them because I couldn't decide between two of the patterns offered. It's a really cute boho style dress that comes with jewelry too! I am wearing the necklace and bracelet that comes with the dress as well as a Kitbitz necklace I picked up at The Secret Affair event. The shoes are at The Black Dot event and by VG. These are a really nice in between casual and dressy, they fit Slink mid feet and huge win on the platform because lately it seems everyone is into making super tall platforms on the shoes, (I call them stripper platforms) and it's just not really good for an everyday style for me. So thank you to VG Shoes for making something I can actually wear and walk in without breaking my neck. The hair is new from Truth and I grabbed my at the marketplace because, well, I hate the lag at the store. All the events I mentioned have items worth a look see so don't hesitate to go visit them!

Dress: GizzA Scarlet Dress in Ethnic available at The Chapter Four
Shoes: VG Shoes Dallas in Chocolate available at The Black Dot
Beaded Necklace and Bracelet: GizzA comes with the Scarlet Dress
Long Necklace: Kibitz Long Beads Necklace in Gold available at The Secret Affair
Hair: TRUTH Verinne from the Ginger Pack available at the store and on marketplace

Looking for the Light

Looking for the Light

I popped into Kustom9 today, despite not having a lot of time in SL with school wrapping up I wanted to take the time to blog this outfit. If you follow my blog at all you probably already know I am not big into over done outfits and am pretty minimalistic when it comes to what I wear. Don't get me wrong I want to look nice and pulled together I just tend to keep it clean and simple. I also tend to do A LOT of black so when spring finally arrives I have to fight the urge to stay in the black and look for the light. This DROP outfit is lovely, well made a an adorable bow on the back of the pants without looking too cutesy. I kept it all in ivory and paired some stunning shoes from Glamistry with the pants and top. These shoes are not done near the justice they deserve in this photo, they come with a hud that lets you customize the metals. the shoes are leather with snakeskin accents that can be color changed as well depending on how many colors you purchase. I am just gonna tell you right now, get the fat pack, you will be glad you did. I kept them all beige here but I had a hard time not accenting with the black on the snakeskin. These are some awesome shoes. The necklace and bracelet are from Mandala and the hair is new from Lamb at Collabor88.

Top and Pants: DROP Back Ribbon Set Up in Beige available at Kustom9
Shoes: Glamistry - ECHIUM Heels in Beige available at Kustom9
Necklace and Bracelet: Mandala Pearl Rain Season 3 in White
Hair: Lamb Babylon from the Ginger Pack available at Collabor88

Color Me Project - Purple

Color Me Project - Purple

Color Me Project newest round is purple which is my favorite color outside of black so I was pretty excited about this round. Real life has been kicking my ass and it's hard to find time for SL lately but I had to get me some purple love published! The dress is flirty and sexy and you should definitely be wearing some panties if you don't want to flash anyone while bending over or going a flight of stairs but if you like causing a little stir, then by all means flash away! I won't tell you if I am wearing any or not ;-)

The dress if from FLRN Design and the shoes are sexy times two from VG Shoes, I love the wood heel and platform, keeps them from being too formal and nice for everyday wear. Both items are at Color Me Project! Go, hurry, get some purple in your life!
