Neon Carrot – WTF?

Well, let’s be honest here…I pretty much don’t like any shade of orange, unless it’s in jewelry. So I dug around in my inventory for this week’s color challenge: neon carrot. Really Luna? Jeez, ok so here is my look, and of course since I’ve been around nearly 5 years now, many of these items aren’t available anymore. Still, here are the credits, you’ll probably be able to find similar items if there is anything you like.

I Do It Pretty, In Pink

Well pink is one of my favorite colors, always has been. I seem to have many pink items, but when you pile them up, the look isn’t as interesting anymore. So this week for the blogger’s challenge of 52 Weeks of Color, I decided to mix different shades of pink with a couple more neutral ones. I also broke out my new Bloom Doll avatar (head, shape and skin) from Surf Co. It’s so fun to just get silly with! That’s all from me for this week, Pinky Bloom over….and out!

Ingenue At Shoe Fair 2011

I love shoes, I think I am pretty normal in that way. Ingenue by Betty Doyle always comes up with sweet, somewhat vintage looking styles that I just have to get my feet into! For the Shoe Fair 2011, Ingenue has these Jane Wedge Sandals in the color Roses (which I am wearing) for L$ 295 and 100% of the proceeds go to the charity the fair is supporting, Soles4Souls. I was wearing them last night with different outfits, and I got asked where they were from already!

Also new for the shoe fair is the Tallula Heels, which come in a variety of colors. I’m wearing Moss to show off the great bow detail on the back of them – it’s just so darling! You can get a pair for L$ 295 or the fatpack of 15 colors for L$ 2400.

Both of these pairs of shoes are brand new and are only available at the fair for the moment, so go visit and try them for yourself!

Preview: LeLutka At Shoe Fair 2011

Oh my gosh, LeLutka has done it again! They have released a pair of shoes that I have completely fell in love with, salivated over and nearly tried to take to bed. I love a wedge shoe because it’s so much more true to the real me – I walk terribly in stilettos!

These are the K.I.A. shoes and they come in a variety of colors. I’m wearing the Olive tone, which is really pretty and could work as a neutral option basically. There is a bright green shade called Ever Green (Shoe Fair Exclusive) being sold where 100% of the profit from that pair will go to Soles4Souls, the charity that the shoe fair is supporting. Each pair is individually sold for L$ 875 and the fatpack of 12 colors (not containing the exclusive color) is just over L$ 5000 if memory serves me correctly.

I also wanted to mention that the HUD was so easy to use, and the instructions were really clear, this is probably the easiest skin tinting system I’ve used.

Preview: District At Shoe Fair 2011

My very good friend (and SL sis) Sommer Restless has a booth at the Shoe Fair 2011 for her store, District. Initially she was just going to be one of the few other non-shoe stores, but she decided to make a new pair of shoes for the occasion, the Christina shoe. I got to preview the black version, but I hear there will be other colors as well by time the fair opens tomorrow May 14, 2011 at 12PM SLT.

This is only her second pair of shoes, but I was really impressed with the textures and how she baked on the shadows, this isn’t from the lighting. I am pushing for more shoes in the future, so if you like what you see here make sure to check them out!

Preview: Purrfect 10 At Shoe Fair 2011

Hi darlings! I am very excited to show off a pair of the limited edition Florence Heels by Purrfect 10, which are being offered at this year’s Shoe Fair (which begins May 14, 2011)! I have on a Chocolate-Brass version, but they also will be released in the L.E. colors of Silver-Gold and Silver-Salmon Rose. They are being offered at 25% the usual price (which was L$ 690 – so estimate about L$ 520).

The great thing about Purrfect 10 shoes is that any part can be made black, so essentially you’re getting enough combinations to make up several pairs of shoes. The skin toning system on these shoes is pretty simple to use, if you have trouble you can also get a special Skin Toner that helps you step by step to achieve the optimal skin color. I am not the best at coloring prim feet though, so please forgive me!

I Really Love Olives

I really do love olives, almost every kind. Not so fond of those tasteless black kind that come in a can though. When you mention the color olive my mind automatically goes to the food, sorry! This is of course the color of the week for the 52 Weeks of Color blogger’s challenge. I’ve put my look together with things already in my inventory, turns out I had quite a few olive toned items. Who knew?

I’m also totally in love with this hair from LeLutka, if my hair was this fabulous in real life, I wouldn’t mind it being so curly.

Make It Tangerine

I can’t believe we’re half-way through the 52 Weeks of Color challenge! This is week 26 and the color is tangerine, which I admit, I am not really a fan of. Oranges in general just don’t get me excited. I used a few shades of orange here to make the look more interesting, and used a Moroccan style house as the background (I had just watched ANTM at the time…) Hope you like what I came up with!
