“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.

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 😉
