Unmellow Yello

I'm very late on this week's 52 Weeks Of Color Challenge submission.  This week's color was "unmellow yellow" and it seems that lingerie in yellow is proliferant around the grid. Since the last week has been extremely emotionally exhausting in RL, I was a little lazy with this color, I must admit. I really took the easy way out on this one, but I'll try and make up for it next week. I promise. :o) Also, for this pictures I'm wearing my first Laqroki skin since I was back on the grid in October, 2010, after a 2-year break from SL.  The skin is Phoebe2, and I wore it exclusively for months.  I now change skins to suit my mood, although I do have my favorite standbys.  I was formerly a Laq-only type girl, but there are sooooo many talented skin creators on the grid, and now frequent several on a regular basis.

The Witch is Back

I've posted some pretty and colorful pictures, but I think this outfit and set of photos portrays, much better, the way I've been feeling the last few days. It's been a rough week in RL, lot of trial and tribulation stuff going, and because of that, I'm feeling quite witchy at the moment. EMOtions' new releases are the perfect way to convey that mood.

Group gifts and a summer dress

I just had to share some really lovely recent group gifts with you all.  First, IKON V.I.P. group has migrated to IKON VIP group (without the "pesky periods"), and with that move they have posted 3, yes 3, eyes in their notices. I am a huge fan of IKON eyes, and have been since they were "Fashism", so to get 3 pairs made Shiloh one happy avie. Along with that, Izzie's released a lovely skin as their group gift. She is Estellam, and she comes with 2 make-up options, as well as teeth showing or not. I'm pretty  much a skin-whore, so getting this one from Izzie's, added to my delight. This absolutely gorgeous dress from Shiki just screamed to be worn on a beach on a balmy summer day. I love empire-style dresses, and this one comes in the color shown, as well as 2 other's. I'm loving hard on this whole look.

So, it's the weekend, which is the time when I can actually spend a bit of time logged into SL to shop and take pictures. I am becoming a big fan of mesh corsets, and this one is one of the nice I've personally seen.  I fell in love with it, and HAD to have it. I'll share my outfit and my rock-star dreams with you:

EMOtions New Releases

I'm breathing a huge sigh of relief now that school is out for the summer. Things can settle down now a bit in my RL, or at least I hope so. I'm horribly behind in posts, and have at least 4 sets of pictures I want to share, so I'll start with a couple of new releases from EMOtions.

Again, I can get in touch with my dark side with their latest group gift, Sugar, which is quite edgy, but still has a perfect flow, which I love in virtual hair. I paired it with their release from June 2, Mimi. This outfit also has a green shirt layer which I'm not wearing in the picture, but it's lovely for a more modest look, as well as another option for the pants.

You can't tell, but I realized I'm not wearing any shoes. Thank goodness for long pants!

I love that EMOtions is so diverse, and I can use their creations to express myself however I feel. For a softer look, their newest releases were just what I wanted:

Here's another post for the 52 Weeks Of Color Challenge (  This week's color was pistachio, and it took me a bit of time to gain some inspiration for my photos.  When I remembered that I had these really cute poses, with a grocery bag prop, which I got from Akdorable at Culture Shock, I knew exactly how I wanted to do these pictures!

Credits are as follows:

Skin: -Glam Affair- Mia Natural 05 (Chic Event)
Eyes: IKON Utopia Eyes - Green (M)
Hair (windblown):  [LeLutka]-EDITORIAL02 hair - Praline
Hair: [LeLutka]-WITHER hair - Praline
Eyelashes:  [Stellar] Basic Eyelash Face Tattoo & Koketka: *Eyelashes v.18*
Eyeshadow: Izzie's - Delusional Eyeshadow yellow
Dress: Boho Baku~ MESH Citrus Bali Boho Sundress
Shoes: fri. - Basic.Flats (Leaf)
Manicure: Izzie's - Glitter Nails
Necklace: StashBash
Poses: Akdorable-Groceries (Culture Shiock)
I really had a lot of fun with these poses and pictures. I used 2 hairstyles, obviously, but they were close enough (also same shade from the same creator) that I figured I could get away with it. :)

Thanks for reading, and hope you're having a wonderful day!!

I'm soooo late on my color challenge outfit this week.  I'm normally a "gotta have it up by Sunday" kind of girl, but an ugly sore throat and all around feeling of "blah" this week seriously messed with my mojo. This week's color was Cobalt, which was one of the easier colors to do, I think. Here's Shiloh's cobalt pictures:


Skin: CL[MyDear]Hygeia Skin- Medium 4
Eyes: ~*By Snow*~ Hazel Delight Eyes (M-05)
Hair: .:EMO-tions:. * DAPHNE*/darkred (new release for tomorrow)
Make-up: [mock] Mythic Neutraliser (Lip/eye)- Tintable
Eyeshadow: Izzie's - Delusional Eyeshadow blue
Lashes: Koketka - *Eyelashes v.18*
Dress: (Elate!) Mei Cobalt Dress
Necklace/Earrings: .( bewildebeest ). Mucha -  Blue Jasper
Bracelet: .( bewildebeest ). Naiad's Tears Bracelet
Manicure: Izzie's - Glitter Nails
Shoes: SLink Cassandra Heels  Black

I have to say, that I think the hair, which is new from EMO-tions complements this dress perfectly.  The shade of red is just what I wanted to set off the deep blue of the dress. I'm very pleased with this look.  Simple, but elegant.  Something I would actually wear in RL....well, if my RL self looked like my SL Self, that is. :)

Until my next post, stay well.
