52: Emerald

Ok, so if you know me, you know that green, in any shade, is not my favorite color.  Obviously that means there's very little of it in my inventory.  And I just couldn't see spending lindens on something that I likely won't wear.. so... I went a different route.  Probably like a lot of people, when you say emerald to me.. I think of Emerald City and munchkins, and flying houses and lions, tinmen and scarecrows.. oh my!  Yes, I know that's not the real line... so.. I went on a little search for Emerald City and I'm sad to say, I didn't find much.  What I did find, isn't a castle.  Its a house, and it has some pretty cool stuff inside detailing the origins of the Wizard of Oz.

There's even Dorothy's house and a tornado... 

And yeah ok, I got a little green.... 

****DISCLAIMER:  Most of this stuff was found in my halloween folders, so it may no longer be available in the stores.. if that's the case, I'm sorry.

The Stuff:
Skin:  Green Halloween Green - Nuuna's Skins
Hair:  Fearne - Truth
Outfit:  The Witches of Eastwick, Jane - Cilian'gel
Shoes:  Ruffle Witch Shoes - katatOnik
Location:  The Origin of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz

52: Taupe

Taupe isn't a color I had a lot of in my inventory.  And again, who knows what taupe really is?  I've seen everything from light to dark shades.. so I guess its all relative and open to an individual's interpretation.  Like most things in life, really.  Anyway.. here's what I did.

The Stuff:
Skin:  Erika Tan - Belleza (group gift)
Hair:  La Femme - Maitreya
Sweater:  Tailgate Sweater in Truffle - JANE
Tank:  Intrinsic Tanks in Fawn - JANE
Skirt:  Weston Swishy Skirt in Taupe - Vanitas Vesture (SL Marketplace)
Shoes:  Flower in Taupe - Kara (SL Marketplace)
Jewelry:  Pearl Set in Choco - YS&YS (past TDR)
Belt:  Golden Belt - Redgrave (recolored)

52: Indigo

This week's color is indigo.  I've always thought of indigo as a dark purply blue.  Which is not what the color swatch was.. so.. I'm not sure I have the right color, but this is my take on it.  And it was a fairly easy color to work with.  Especially since the two pieces I'm wearing are new releases, they just seemed to fall together.

The Stuff:
Skin:  Isolde 36 Nuit - Exodi
Hair:  Avery - Truth
Top:  Kitina Top in Blue - Ema's Secret
Skirt:  Chiffon in Pale Tartan - The Secret Store
Boots:  Jully Boots in Navy - Decoy

52: Sienna

Okay, so sienna was hard for me.  Not sure why, cause I have lots of warm browns and the like in my inventory.  But nothing worked.  And, I couldn't find anything I liked at any of my usual spots to shop.. so.. yeah.. difficult.  Plus, I've been a little.. preoccupied.  Soo.. I was thinking of skipping this week, honestly.  And then I decided to just type sienna in the marketplace and see what came up.  And well.. I'm glad I did!   I found this dress, for $5L no less.. its from Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which boasts nothing over 5L.  Guess where I'm going when I'm done here?  On to the pics.. cause you know.. I gotta shop!

The Stuff:
Skin:  Elvira - Candy Doll (past hunt gift)
Makeup:  Lipstick [Red3] - L. Fauna

Shoes, Socks and Boots! Oh My!!

So, one day, sometime between Christmas and New Years, I log on and just start accepting all those notices without reading ya do.  Later, as I'm going through all the notecards I find one from Pixieplumb Flanagan of Baby Monkey, and she explains that a friend and fellow designer, one I have blogged for a few times in the past, Eclectic Wingtips of e!, has given her my name.  And she dropped a ton of fatpacks on me to share with you.  Now, some of you may not know this about me.. but I love shoes...particularly boots.  So this was like my own little special Christmas present.  Yay shoes!  And boots!!

Once I finally found time to play with these offerings, I fell in love.  There are sooo many color options.. so many I can't possibly post them all here.  What I've tried to do, is show you a few of the various color options from each design, but believe me, there are so many more.
