I Like it Loud. I like it Hard. Enter Neon Carrot, stage left. Turn up the sound, get ready to rock, and I will guarantee it will be a killer time.
Enter Week 29 of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge – and a very loud color.. Neon Orange. I found this look and knew that it had to pay hommage to my other passion, DJing. Live, loud, and hard.. just the way I like it. The color just happened to work, too.

“You, me, and a martini?” I asked. Lucky for this lady, the rather attractive gentleman didn’t refuse to share an Olive or two with me for this week’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, courtesy of the divine Ms. Luna Jubilee.
Olive was perfect, made me think of martinis, Mad Men, and thus.. the concept was born. Playing the role of the dashing man behind the wet bar, and reprising his role as my photographic enhancement is fellow blogger, DJ, and Vivi-putter-upper-with, Bouncer.
Olive let me be creative, I designed the set, building most of it. Heck, I even made the bowtie. If you look closely enough, it matches the wallpaper.
On to the details!

For week 26 of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge , she went citrus.. Tangerine to be exact! I initially thought about going back to my rather *cough*redneck*cough* upbringing with a tangerine (safety orange) tank and some camoflage, only.. I couldn’t find the puffy vest I wanted! After chatting with the group for a few, I perused the Marketplace and decided to expand my color vocabulary and stumbled upon this lovely bikini.. with a tangerine sarong, that I didn’t end up using since the look just pulled itself together and didn’t need it! I picked up the Tropica Flip Flops in Vanilla, cute but I think they make my feet look flat and if you don’t have the anklet option on, you look weird.. well, I felt like Frankenstein, even with the Alpha layer.
The bracelets are my own, from [hoi palloi], and the shades from Role Optic and Necklace from Caroline’s Jewelry seemed to add off the finishing touches. I knew I wanted to hit the water.. on a boat.. so I found this SIM and a sailboat that called to me. It was great until this Baudi character decided that he was going to tool around, either to perv the chic in the bikini or just play with the boats while perving the chic in the bikini. At one point he rezzed this jumbo yacht and totally blocked my sunlight. I cursed under my breath, I’ll admit it. Because if there is one thing that this water baby doesn’t like, it’s some dude blocking her rays.

Once upon a time, there was this great guy, blogger, and DJ who spoke a few magical words.. “We should do a post together”.. weeks and weeks later, it finally happened! Periwinkle was the name of the much awaited color courtesy of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge and I have to tell you, this has probably been the trickiest one for me to date! The handsome guy standing next to me, Bouncer, not so tricky to line up.. although his tale might be different considering how many times I made him get on and off… the poseball.. where was your mind?!? (It’s okay, I thought the same thing and smirked when I typed it out at first.) Hey.. I’m a glamazon, tweaking static poses comes with the territory.
After finding this delectable dress from Boudoir – I swear, I love those gorgeous frocks! I knew the look had to be romantic and whimsical. I kept it simple, the new windblown hair from Truth, these amazing heels from Pixel Mode (The skin tone matching card is AWESOME!!). Then came the tricky part.. finding a place to shoot. Well, I fell in love with the sim that Botanical is on, but no scripts, no building, etc. When I mentioned this to my dashing partner, he so graciously offered up his land and a whole mess of prims. I swear, the way to this girl’s heart is prims so I can get creative and make stuff! So I did! I made this absolutely beautiful and romantic garden in the sky, which became the location some 3,000 odd meters up in the air. Of course, it did cost him.. practically all of the prims he had left, but in my defense he DID tell me to go crazy.. just sayin’.
After all was said and done, our little 52 Weeks Partnership turned out fantastic. The hard part was picking just one pic .. but this one characterized his charm the best, and more is posted on my Flickr – so make sure you take a peek!!

Sometimes you just walk into a store and see it. That gorgeous piece that you simply have to have. That’s what happened the other day when I walked into ICING. Orchids are simply my absolute favorite flower. Sure, roses are easy.. and cliche. Not to say that I don’t adore a good rose garden.. but orchids are special. They aren’t common, you don’t see them every day, and often you have to go out of your way to find them. So when I saw Icing’s Orchid Delight, I knew right away I had to have this dress!
The shoulder piece is three separate prims, I had to make mine a little larger to accommodate the curves. The bottom does have that whole ‘skirt’ thing going, but I find with the gown attatchment at the hip, the rubenesqueness isn’t quite as noticeable. The earrings I snagged from Caroline’s a few weeks ago, the color just went beautifully.. accenting both the orchid blooms and the ones from the trees I found on Seychelles.

Now this one, this one I knocked out wayyy early. As soon as I saw that Eggplant was the next color for Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, I knew what I wanted to do. It all started with the swipe of eye makeup from -DAMNED- , but the real jackpot find is the sleeves. They’re cupcakes. YES, cupcakes! As soon as I saw the Cupcake Sleeve tattoo from [Dead Carrot] I knew they had my name written all over them. The tattoo has a “sheer” option (not pictured) which is a lighter than the regular option, which I found to be darker but more vivid. Granted, to pull this look off I did have to take advantage of 2.5’s multi layering option with the tattoo layers.
I am digging the bustier from E R R A T I C. The prim add on has these great little studded details and it comes in several colors – including this shade.

The delectable Ms. Berry had a passing thought.. one that we all get at some point in time, mostly has to do with.. does my butt look big in this? She even went as far as to post her own digits. Yes, we can come in all shapes and sizes and most of us have tweaked here and there to get the look we love and live with. It is nice, though, to see what someone else does.. how do they look like they do. I know there are definitely some skins that do not look nearly as good on me as they do another avie and I know it all comes down to my numbers. But you know what? That’s absolutely fine.
I love that I have pulled some of the RL features that makes me unique and strut them in SL.. like the shape of my nose, my mouth, my face.. my short waist, those kinds of things. Granted, my total Glamazon height is allll SL, but I love the way it all works together. It’s just so.. me! I don’t have to edit any hair, most things and poses work. There are some poses that aren’t exactly boob friendly, or don’t quite get along with the length of my arms and legs, and those all prim tops? Yeah.. I’m not even going to get started on the bottoms because Yes. Vivi does have back. But I love that I have back. Even in RL.. I love that I have curves, I may have an ass.. but damnit, it has one helluvah dangerous curve. And so, just like RL, my SL perfections and imperfections seem to mesh so well together.
So with that, and a little bit of prodding from the lovely Laila, here are my numbers…

What to wear.. what to wear.. what to wear… the thoughts run through your head, then you remember the little pretty something you picked up. Pretty AND free. It’s date night, time to get prettied up. You don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard, but with one last glance, you know you got it just right.
Now, just a quick walk through the courtyard to meet him at the cafe…

Have you ever wondered what she really wears under those suits? If it’s her, you know whatever it is it will be hot.. leaopard print slip, perhaps, or in this case, the Black Laced Panty Girdle from Deetalez. And honey, this is soooo not your grandmother’s panty girdle! Admittedly, I had no idea what to wear this with, I suppose a dress shirt might look hot, but ultimately I decided it needed nothing else. Not even a bra. It hits just under the breasts, and the overall look is pretty damn sexy.. so I’ve been told.
The issue with this garment (other than the boobless thing, but that’s not reeeealllly an issue) is that if you wear the jacket layer by itself, it’s crotchless. Okay, so throw on the pants or even the underpants layers, well, your wicked garden is covered up, but this slightly shaded section also shows up in the lace panel on the front from the midsection down (the back isn’t as noticeable). The solution is that you simply just have to wear the shirt layer or undershirt layer with either the pants or underpants layers to cover up and avoid the shadow. Granted, chances are he’s not really even going to notice. He’s probably going to end up just staring at your boobs. Which are indeed divine. But I digress, I love the cute prim bows at the hips that come along with this really quite unnecessary undergarment (because it’s SL, who really needs a panty girdle?).
Kept the other details simple, the black Lotus ring and bracelet from Mandala and the amazing heels from Pixel Mode. I swear, I love those things.. I should have just bought the fat pack.
So sweetheart, if he even has a hint about what’s underneath your clothes.. you know he’s definitely going to want to take you home.
