Merry X-Mas

So, I tend not to blog but once a week when I'm working on the 52 weeks of color challenge. However, I wanted to do a quick blog and wish everyone a Happy Holiday season. I know that not everyone celebrates Christmas, but I wish everyone a merry end to the year. Remember to look back with fondness and to look forward with excitement.


P.S. I'm not providing any credits for items featured in the pic as I'm not in-world at the moment. However, feel free to send me a message or leave a comment if you're curious about anything :)

Week 006 - Yellow in the Trenches

Okay, I have the lamest titles sometimes, but whatev. Anyway, I was SO excited when Luna Jubilee announced this week's color was yellow. Normally, I'm not a very yellow person, but I have one favorite item that I've had for almost two years. It has some good memories for me and so I haven't gotten rid of it (even though my inventory is busting at the seams). That and it happens to be one of the first items I purchased at long time favorite, Aoharu.

Anyway, here's to keeping dry on this rainy Tokyo day in my yellow trench coat <3

Hair: [elikatira] - Rumor in Brown 08
Skin: Tuli - Audrey in Tone 4

Week 5 - Sepia... is that brown?

For those of you who don't know, Luna Jubilee has challenged those in Second Life to 52 Weeks of Color. Each week she gives everyone a new color, and your challenge is to come up with an outfit or even a room inspired by the color. Actually, it can be virtually anything. So, I decided to take her up on her challenge and added a special twist for myself. I cannot use items that are newer than 2 weeks. What this means is that I cannot shop for new items just for the week's challenge. With that said, you may see some items blogged that are no longer available (so don't hate me too much).

This week's color was sepia; a color I only referred to as a photo filter in photoshop. To complete this week, I had to get a little creative again. However, thanks to awesome designers who make their items modifiable, I was able to come up with my interpretation of sepia.

Hair: [elikatira] - Vivid in Brown 04
Skin: League - Misty in Deeptan
Sweater: Fri.day - Long Cardi in Brown (color edited)
Top: Armidi Gisaci - Hoja Top in White (color edited)
Jeans: Suicidal Unborn - Bitish II Jeans in White
Boots: J's - Westernboots in Brown
Scarf: Miel - Scarf in Flor (past Fifty Linden Friday item)

52 Weeks of Color (and in my Inventory!)

So Luna Jubilee (an awesome SL blogger) announced a challenge to all bloggers (and Flickrites). This challenge includes coming up with a look representing a different color each week. I haven't blogged in a while and so I thought what better way than to do this challenge. However, after thinking about it (and seeing my ever expanding inventory) I decided to add an additional angle. Therefore, I will be blogging a new look based on the color of the week using only items that have been in my inventory longer than a week. This means that I won't be able to purchase anything new to complete the look.

So, we'll see how I do on this challenge as well as Luna's. Wish me luck!
