“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!
Necklace: Caroline’s Jewelry
My pose: Lust
I’m catching up! Actually busting a post out early for Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color and week 22 is none other than “Banana Mania”! I found this super cute dress from Artilleri on Marketplace and it fit the color perfectly! It comes with two different versions of the skirt.. poof (not pictured – which is a sheer crinolin-esque lace ‘ruffle’ peeking out the bottom) and non-poof (pictured). The skirt isn’t scripted, so if you do resize it, make sure you make a backup copy first. The dress does also come in several different colors. I paired it with the adorable Flair flats from Elikatira (also available in other colors) but I think they would work well with a pair of heels, too.
To top it off, I wanted a necklace with a bow on it, and I found one with bonus butterflies from Caroline’s Jewelry (the set also comes with earrings and a ring). Looove eeeeet! Banana works, no chocolate needed 😉
*Available on Marketplace
I found a super adorable dress on the Marketplace from Artilleri and had to stop by their Rockabilly inspired store and fell in love. It all started with a simple pair of glasses and as soon as I put them on, I knew I had to do a “Hot For Teacher” post. While I was there I picked up the fantastic pencil skirt which comes in several colors – but does do the whole skirt thing so a spare “skirt friendly” (aka tiny booty) shape comes in handy. I can’t say I’m a big fan of the whole skirt component in SL, but this one at least has a “slit” in the back so you don’t look completely ridiculous when you walk. (And I did love the little zipper accent!) I also found the cardi which also comes in several colors AND you have the option of plain or polkadots.. of course I went with the dots.
It’s ironic, the one piece that’s actually accenting the whole look is plain white – the blouse from Pink Outfitters. I went in looking for the sheer blouse, but found this instead and I found that I adored the tiny little button on the neck. Coordinating the look I went with the red rings and nails from Mandala (Buddah) – I found that even with small hands, the “size 20” seem to fit the best. The super fab heels are from Pixel mode – even though they’re scripted, I can TP with them (unlike some other brand of shoe). And because even teachers need to have a little fun.. not that the red nails and heels don’t count.. I threw in the star tattoos, even though I couldn’t find the store any longer (sorry guys!).
All in all, I think even I would be hot for teacher!
