Neon Carrot – Week 29

Neon Carrot..WTH is a neon carrot…. I went looking for a radioactive carrot, but really.. isn’t this a FASHION blog?  So I went to one of my bestest GF’s and said…. HELP.. I want something funky and fun for the 52-Weeks of Color blogger’s challenge.  She said… c’mon … and drug me off to Emery.  And THIS is what I found!

Pretty on the Prairie

I came by this gorgeous dress by Azul and thought… such a contrast in the dress itself, leather and layers and layers of flouncy chiffon… deserved a contrasting scene to shoot it in…. so I chose the Mother Road.

Azul 1

This dress is everything I am… feminine and beautiful, yet edgy and tough. I put it on and didn’t want to take it off…. and haven’t … for three days… (I think I need to send it to the dry cleaners now).

The lacing on the back of the dress is exquisitely done, every grommet perfectly placed. The flowing skirt is available as a cocktail length as shown or ball gown.

Week 26 – Tangerine

Tangerine, she is all they claim
With her eyes of night and lips as bright as flame
Tangerine, when she dances by, senoritas stare and caballeros sigh
And I’ve seen toasts to Tangerine
Raised in every bar across the Argentine
Yes, she has them all on the run, but her heart belongs to just one
Her heart belongs to Tangerine
Tangerine, she is all they say
With mascara’d eye and chapeaux by Dache.
Tangerine, with her lips of flame
If the color keeps, Louis Philippe’s to blame.
And I’ve seen clothes on Tangerine
Where the label says “From Macy’s Mezzanine”.
Yes, she’s got the guys in a whirl, but she’s only fooling one girl
She’s only fooling Tangerine!

Well… the dress isn’t from Macy’s its from .salt and I don’t think i’m fooling anyone… but ya never know… 🙂

Blue is one of my favorite colors, so finding something in my inventory that was Periwinkle really wasn’t that hard… this week’s color comes to you from <P3>. A cute, fun summer top you can pair with a cute skirt, jeans or shorts, as I have here.

Sky Blue…..

Ok… on to day two of my “catching up” phase…. Week 20 of the 52 Weeks of Color bloggers challenge was sky blue and for my choice I went to my closet and found… TADA….. this lovely dress by []::Tuli::[].  Its been a staple in my closet for quite some time and I love the fabric textures and knew it was EXACTLY the dress I wanted to use for Sky Blue.

First Date/Second Date


Modern Gypsy’s newest collection is full of interesting and avant garde designs. The Dovetta dress is, in my opinion, the most arresting – or the most likely to get you arrested since it doubles as a deadly weapon. In jest, I said it was a First Date dress, but then decided to explore the idea further – styling it for a First Date with an unknown quantity, giving it a hard-edged, remote styling. I added tintable leggings from Fashionably Dead and a belt from M.A.II.K.I in a bright cerise.


Luckily for this imaginary date and me, the prims detach for a more comfortable Second Date. I switched to a red belt from Lelutka and ditched the leggings.

Quick Look: Hyper Culture

I shot these photos at the end of January – but misplaced them and forgot. Now how could that happen with such a lovely dress as this? I don’t know and have no excuses other than the fact that SL has so many great designs and great clothing that sometimes we drown in an embarrassment of riches. I love the gorgeous rich cordovan leather color in this dress and the bold bronze top-stiching. It’s a dress that says “Look at me!”
