I Thought Periwinkle Was Blue

I always thought periwinkle was a shade of blue, turns out it’s more purple than blue if look around at the other 52 Weeks of Color posts. Researching it, the internet says it’s a mix of blue and violet – so eff my life, I don’t know how to even search that in my inventory. Anyhow, I came up with a blue and purple look I guess…I tried! I might have failed.

Here’s a closer look at the detail on my divine sunglasses, they are new from je suis… and cost L$ 299. They come with 11 scripted metal detail colors, resizing and you can also remove the scripts if you like. Pretty cool huh? Yeah let’s forget that I totally stuffed up this week…

Eggplant Is Quite Yummy

Eggplant is a color that closely associated with the vegetable it’s name comes from. I happen to like eggplant, and so this week’s color challenge wasn’t too challenging – thankfully! I’ve had most of these items for a bit now, but the hair is a pretty recent release from Simply Britnee, where you get all the colors for one low price! Sorry for the small amount of writing today, but not feeling terribly talkative.

Pray For Japan 2 Day Event!

There is a great 2 day event going on now at Pasarella, called Pray For Japan! The event involves live music performances with various DJs and a special dance from the Dazzlers to start it all off at 11:30 AM SLT! There will be several charity vendors by all sorts of brands, with 100% of the proceeds going  to the Red Cross Japan via a fundraising avatar: Fundraisersl Resident. Will you be there? I will!

Stuck In A Pose

It’s week 23 of the 52 Weeks of Color blogger’s challenge, and that means we’re almost half-way done! This week’s color is asparagus, and I’ve got a late entry since my real life has been pretty busy lately and I’ve been sick with a cold for days. I finally felt up to showing off some new accessories from je suis… by Julia Merosi. We have the asymetrique bangles which come in a variety of colors or you can get them all, like I did – which leads to so many possible color combinations with the stack of 5 bangles. I also have the new fiere peacock feather earrings which will debut at the Chic Limited event which starts April 16, 2011.

Is This A Stand-off?

Bax Coen Designs released 4 new metallic shades of the best-selling Prestige Boots: olive, orange, violet and the taupe that I’m wearing. Each has several boot shades to choose from, as well as different styles of boot top (as before) and color-customizable parts. I happened to put the boots on with these jumper-pants from Ingenue and then decided to build a look to blog from it. I love the way retro and modern style is mixed here, and the cute BabyDoll hair which is new from Truth brought it all together for me. If you visit Project FUR Japan you can get all the colors of this hair, with and without streaks, in this version and one without the headband, for only L$ 350 and all the proceeds go to the charity the event is supporting.

This Dress Is Bananas!

B-A-N-A-N-A-S! Okay, I got that out of my system. So for week 22 of the 52 Weeks of Color blogger’s challenge, the color is banana. We already did a yellow look, but I got this Sunshine dress from E! Eclectic Apparel and Accessories and when I saw this perfect shade of banane (that’s banana in French), it wasn’t hard to build a look around it. It’s also a pretty cute look for summer, which can’t get here soon enough! It also comes in a bunch of other colors, so you can be ready for summer no matter what you happen to like.

There is a demo available for free, so you can check it out before you buy. It costs L$ 150 and 100% of the proceeds go to charity.You can find it in the purple section, just take the path between the purple and green sections.
