The next to last of the 52 Week Color Challenge, brought to us by the indefatigable Luna Jubilee proves that the CREAM rises to the top! Thank you Luna:)
I know some of us have taken this as an excuse to go shopping, but I had a lot of fun diving into my inventory to find the items needed. In this case it's an old DNR gift dress, the Satin Shine Cocktail Dress in Yellow. It's still available at Nicky Ree's store. I am wearing the Samara Shoes in Champagne [yes named after me by the uber-sexy Damen Gorilla], alas now [NA]. My skin is also AnE, Ariadne Natural Lemongrass from the talented fingers of sachi Vixen. Hair is from Clawtooth, Good Evening in Strawberry Cream. The Cream Pearl Flower Necklace is from Dark Mouse. Poses from STaTus.
Moss green....ok, shoot me I am soooo late blogging.
This proved to be another challenge but eventually i did find PIDIDDLE's one-piece beachware. A pretty off the shoulder number with a cut out torso on one side. Detailing includes a horizontal stripe and pretty buttons.
I teamed it with my usuals, listed below.
Short & Sweet as another is coming soon.

Thanks again to Luna Jubilee for the 52 week color challenge. It's been quite a ride! I've taken the tack of combing my inventory for items to wear, and in the case of MULBERRY, I waxed nostalgic...
I'm wearing Claire in Raspberry [NA] from Mischief, Janie Marlowe's well-know and love brand before she rebranded as just Janie. I bought it to wear to my art opening at Tricia Aferdita's gallery in the long gone Cetus Art District. It still wears well! The skin is a memory lane visit also--*blowpop* Elizabeth tone2 in Mulberry Wine, still available. The hair is from RubisoHo in wine and is called Duri. The store still exists. Shoes are new, from Pixel Mode, the Lady T's, a kind gift from Jori Watler.

Lot'sa goodies at the current Collaboration88, including some lovely hair from Clawtooth, elikatira and Lamb that I'm not wearing. What I *am* wearing is Kyoot's Antiqued Autumn Dress in Orange, R2 Kapua shoes in Orange and the Tres Blah C88 Dewy Skin in Light. The detailing on the dress is really beautiful. The eyes are by Fleur de Male--more fantasy than I usually wear, but quite subtle. They come in 3 sizes so are unisex, despite the store name.
Hair: Beloved by Detour in Smoked/Streaked-Glazed
Earrings: Chandelier Topaz by Donna Flora
Poses: STaTus [R]
Eyes: Fleur de Male Alive Copper Medium Light [R]

I had a WENGE outfit all lined up, then got sidetracked by inspecting a dress at a FLF stop and it led me to Carrie Snowpaw's store. I first ran into her work in the early days of InWorldz, but hadn't really sought her out in SL. This honey of a dress was on sale so I snapped it up. Then I realized well, it was Wenge-ish. Let me explain. Wenge is the name of a blackish & brownish African wood. Black -- check, brown --check, and the underlying pattern is a bit tigerish... so here we are!
Dress: Galiah Summer Floral in Caramel by Snowpaws
Shoes: Verve in Brown by Maitreya
Earrings: Sally by Donna Flora
Hair: Isa in Auburn by Truth
Skin: Ariadne in Lemongrass Natural from Adam n Eve

This outfit started with the new Tres Blah Relaxed Kimono in "Hatched," one of the newest goodies from the nimble pixels of Juliette Westerberg. After a bit of fitting, the draped sections worked wonderfully. And the flower pattern on the "hatched" background is very Japanese.
To show off the lovely pattern and drape of "Hatched" I headed for some favorites of mine: the soft scoop tank in Midnight from DCNY [R], the Laila pants in Navy from MichaMi [R] and the old ETD Heel Strap Platforms in Navy [NA]. Jewels are the Prato set from MOOD. Hair is Ana in Copper from Truth and my skin is the new Adam n Eve Adriane in Natural Lemongrass. Poses are from /GEEZ/[R].

For me MOSS GREEN is yellower and darker than Luna's color example, so I went with that.
An inventory search revealed the Off-Shoulder Chiffon top in flowers/moss green from G Field. [a past group gift] and the leggings from MichaMi's Ida dress [marketplace only]. Hair is Fastball from Exile in Pyre. Skin is sachi's new Ariadne in Lemongrass Natural. Shoes were a desperate inventory grab and I'm not happy with them. [Stiletto Moody/Elegant Slingback in Rosegold]. Otherwise I'm liking the look.
