Chic Cowgirl

Yes, this is a post all about emerald! Well, mostly…I was a bit hesitant about deciding on a look for this week’s color choice for the 52 Weeks of Color blogger’s challenge. I decided some kind of “emeraldish” color was good enough – from looking at the other blog posts each week, colors seem to be kind of subjective. To compliment, I added earthy colored accessories, including this cute new tentee cowboy hat from je suis… which was made to match the tentee jewelry sets. I’ve sort of become fond of this chic cowgirl look that I don’t know when I’ll change.

I Might Be A “Kit” On The Inside

LeLutka's Kit in the Pearl Tone

Just a few days ago the latest skin line from LeLutka was released, called Kit. Also, a new line of sculpted eyelashes came out at the same time, and they are gorgeous! The lashes are edited in clusters instead of lash by lash, and there are no alphas to interfere with hairstyles. These complement the youthful face of Kit perfectly, but could suit any other skin line as well.

LeLutka's Kit in the Golden Tone

The skin line comes in 5 tones, each pack comes with a base skin and 7 makeups, for L$ 3000. The tones range from the pale Pearl to the deep bronze of Raizin. With each skin I am showcasing, I matched one of the new eyelashes, the first is the curl style, the second was natur and the third is the long (and luscious!)

I think this line could suit so many types, but why not try a demo and see for yourself?

I Don’t Feel Like Cruella Yet

The other day I was lucky enough to be offered the latest creations from Sascha’s Designs – the Cruella Cocktail and Formal Gown. I’ve been on a real purple kick lately, so I picked that color to show off today. This is the cocktail version, with 5 different skirt and top/shoulder options. It comes in 6 other deep gem colors for L$ 600 each (sorry I couldn’t find a fatpack option). I chose to wear the sculpted skirt option and bolero top to give myself a slightly “Cruella-ish” look here.

My second look is the formal version of the dress, which also comes with this decorative chest piece, 4 skirt and top/shoulder options, a prim train add-on, a hat and prim flares for the long gloves. The gown also comes in the same 7 colors and costs L$ 650 each or L$ 3699 for the fatpack. I decided on a softer look for this one with the sleek skirt and a feather stola. I am working on my photography, playing with settings, so I hope these pictures are okay *crosses fingers*

Taupe is Troublesome

I used to think I knew what color taupe was, until this weeks’ 52 Weeks of Color blogger challenge…taupe used to mean a purpley-green brown. Looking at Luna’s color swatch, it became more of a mocha or chocolate – who knows! Anyway, I sort of used a mix of both for this outfit so I felt as satisfied as I could with the colors, but I love the outfit! I had the boots for a few weeks and hadn’t used them yet, so I took the opportunity to do so today.

Check Out My Greenie Kini!

So I have known Swan Ling, the crazy lady behind Argyle Anonymous for some time now…I’ve blog a few of her items in the past but when I saw this bikini I was like “HELLO!” so I knew I had to blog it. Yeah, there are other bikinis out there, but this one has a twisted bandeau top – which is my favorite style! So I put on the swimsuit, a necklace and bangle also from AA, and headed to Mystic Beach to take some pictures. So here I am, using shadows with the latest Kirsten Viewer (S21 build3). Everything in the Argyle Anonymous store is under L$ 100, so you can grab a bunch of things; the bikini top and bottom were L$ 33 each, with the necklace costing L$ 69 and a whole bunch of bangles for only L$ 71! The Spring 2011 line is pretty much all mix and match, so stop by and see what you can put together.

I go, Indigo!

I’m so proud of myself for keeping up with Luna’s 52 Weeks of Color – can you guess what this week’s color of choice is? Why yes, it’s indigo. A deep purply-blue shade that can be fun and flirty, or mean serious bid-ness. I wanted to use some of my fave customizable jewelry from je suis… so I used a bangle from the latest domino collection, which is exclusive to the Le.Look sim location. Since it was hard to see in the full-length pic, I added a close-up. You can get a set of bangles or the matching collar-style necklace for L$ 249 each. Both the bands and the accessorie beads are color-change so you get a variety of possible options – so you have something for everyone one of these color challenges! *laughs*

New Service: je suis…showroom!

I just wanted to let everyone know about a new service going on at the je suis mainstore every Saturday and Sunday, it’s a showroom presentation with 2 models who can wear any of the je suis pieces and demonstrate the colors and features for anyone who is curious. Join us at 7 – 8AM and 5 – 6PM on the weekends to get all your questions answered! These are guaranteed times when models/CSR’s will be in the store, but if you can’t make those times you can always take a chance and drop by at other times, there is often someone there (in case you didn’t know :p).

I’m Reminded It’s Winter…

Today I’m  wearing the cute hat/earmuff/hair combination from fri.day, appropriately named Winter. I’m showing you 2 of the 20 colors currently offered in 5 packs of 4 colors (L$ 250 each) or in the 24.7 pack which has all the shades (L$ 875). Both the hat and earmuffs are texture change and can be either shiny or matte. It’s kind of rare to find both hat and earmuffs with hair, so don’t miss this opportunity to grab yours while the snowman season is still upon us!

Raye – The Latest from “je suis”

In my last post I wore a pair of earrings which reminded me that I had intended to feature them in a post. The earrings and necklace are part of the latest collection from je suis by Julia Merosi, called raye. An additional collar is also part of the line, which only the single center pendant in the middle. Both of the collar necklaces are L$ 350 each and the earrings are L$ 250. All the pieces are customizable with 9 leather band color, 10 hoop colors and 10 accent colors – the possibilities are practically endless. These items sort of gave me a Native American vibe when I wore them with dark hair, but they certainly have some ethnic inspiration of some kind. Sorry for the delay!

I Don’t Hate Sienna

I surprised myself this week and found out that I don’t hate the color “sienna” – which is the feature color of the week for Luna’s blogger challenge of 52 Weeks of Color. I also surprised myself by making my first piece of clothing that I didn’t trash! All while being sick, which isn’t too bad in my books. So here we go, my look for the week – hope you all enjoy it!
