52 Week Colour Challenge, St Patrick Blue

St Patrick Blue....hmmm, another new one on me.

 As the RFL clothes fair was on I went shopping. Luckily I found a few items that I wanted to buy and one of them fitted the colour for this particular week. LeeZu's Glitter Pants in blue were perfect and fun too. High waisted glitter hotpants...says it all

I teamed it with another purchase, this time from Bliss. The cropped fur galet with furry detached sleeves was another fun piece of clothing to wear. Sexy and fun, it shows off just a little bit too much torso, such that if you stretch upwards you ever so slightly flash the world.

Usual suspects for everything bar my hair. I chose a Naughty cut that I am not even sure is around anymore. It fitted perfectly to the look.

RFL is a good cause that could use help from everyone, the clothes fair, and other similar events, are an easy and painless way to donate funds. Help support the cause so cancer can be beaten.

Two 52 Week Colour Challenges, Dandelion & Aqua

Dandelion...hmmm, no matter what it's called I still don't do yellow.

I went shopping in Decoy and came across these pretty shorts and well placed scarf. The shorts are simple and system, available in a wide range of pretty colours. The scarf is the real star. Clever design and beautful texturing are the key features. Even in 'yellow' I still love it. there's a colour I adore.

I rooted through my inventory until I came upon a Nicky Ree dress that I had forgotten I had. The DNR Pretty Petal Dress is a floaty summer dress with short sleeves and quite a daring neckline. Again, Nickys hand drawn texturing makes this dress vibrant and alive. It made me think beach so that's where I went to shoot. Worn it a few times since rediscovering it.

I chose AOHARU sandals as their pretty earthstones matched my dress and kept with the beach theme. Also, with matching stones was $GaNKeD$ Arizona necklace. Both these creations pulled the look together.

Skin was PXL, eyes.... and hair

Location was Artilleri

52 Week Colour Challenge, Dark Raspberry

Dark I recognise

This colour conjures up decadence and luxury for me so I delved into my recent purchases for a set of undies I remembered buying, again at a fair. *Fi-St*Lingerie - Incanto in red fitted the bill. It can be worn as a bra and knickers set or as a camisole and knickers set, both with and without garters and stockings. Wonderfully textured and beautifully designed I definitely felt decadent.

Gold Slink shoes kept with the decadence feel and I thought I'd keep the hair short with one of Love Souls creations, a square cut bob that is razor sharp and slick. I love my PXL nude skin so kept that on, along with Fishy lip gloss. I also added another recent purchase, a *LpD* MakeUp called*Not a Game* Only Eyes. Gives a fantastic Egyptian princess look.

After all that I was given a prop and pose TV by GM Nikolaidis of Fluke, at the suggestion of my dear friend Samara. What a perfect way to shoot for this challenge. The TV comes with 8 poses and rotates victorian pictures of women. I loved it...thank you Sam and thank you GM.

52 Week Colour Challenge, Folly

Folly...another colour I have never heard of. A folly is either a female horse or a whimsical building to me.

I took the latter as inspiration and, having shopped over Valentine and not unpacked, I was happy to discover *SoliDea FoliEs* Valentina dress. This fun creation is wonderfully done. Basically a babydoll dress, with a huge skirt, with the bust and back covered in massive flowers and feathery type frongs. It's just fun to wear.

Keeping with the flowers I dug out Mstyle RIVEA Pumps V2 with their floral texturing they were just perfect to match the dress.

Plus keeping with the fun I chose a recent purchase of [ a.e.meth ] - Punk Princess Eyeshadow 1 over a 'nude' PXL skin as a base. This eyeshadow just screams pink, it was great to put it on. Fishy Strawberry lip gloss was added for the look.

Eyes were Miriel and hair was LeLutka.

A to Z Donna Flora: S is for Silvana and Samara (and Squinternet)

One of my favorite SL designers, Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora is having some serious health issues. All of us wish her the strength to handle it and send her the best love we have.

Cajsa Lillhook started the Donna Flora A to Z project to let Squinternet know how much we miss and love her.

Her designs are so feminine and elegant that it's hard not to feel special while wearing them. The Silvana dress and Samara jewelry set are no exception to this rule.

Complementing the beautiful textures and prim work are Shanti Champagne shoes by Maitreya Gold, my usual Adam n Eve skin, Liane with a no-longer available hair from Amrita.

You too can feel as feminine and elegant as I do. Take the taxi to Donna Flora and spend some lindens to enjoy the work and to help Squinternet with her expenses.

Bella Squinternet. Ottenga prego bene. Lo amiamo!

For Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora

This post was initially to show support for Donna Floras creater Squinternet Larnia, which I decided to show by going to purchase something new from her shop even though I own quite a bit from her repetoire already. I shopped before I realised what this weeks colour challenge was. So, as time is short for me, I will blog this piece as both (and yes, its out of numerical order for me but hey). Here is my avocado colour challenge.

Donna Flora for me means stunning detail and beautiful designs. When I saw Katie I fell in love. A tulip corset sits atop a puffball skirt with a difference. The front is open to a waterfall of chiffon frills that turn into a peek-a-boo undeskirt. The waist is synched with a huge chiffon flower with exteme foliage. Both delicate and bold. The candy striped texture is the icing on the cake. This is definately an event dress to make a statement with. 

Every item that comes from Donna Flora is created with the same love for detail. This can also be seen in the jewelry she creates. I purchased, at the same time, Donna Floras Linda set. Every flower and leaf have veins,even the clasp at the back is intricate. A delicate, beautiful compliment to Katie.

To round off the look I chose a PXL skin, Love Soul hair, Miriel eyes, Fishy lipgloss and SLink shoes.

I wish Squinternet a speedy and full recovery.
