She’s the kind of girl you bring home to your mother
She looks good in blue jeans even better under covers
She’s a devil in bed between the sheets
Ask her if she’s a saint and she’ll get down on her knees and pray…
52 Weeks of Color and Ms. Jubilee went Denim on us for week 31. Couldn’t help but think of this tune by Silvertide.. and nothing but blue jeans.

“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.

Today’s little bit of happiness is brought to you by a tire swing, my head in some ‘clouds’, and a gorgeous garden in the sky.
Shirt: Luck, Inc.
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.

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…

Took a little break this evening and meandered about some before heading back to work on a few more items for [hoi palloi]. I was strolling out in the Tableau SIM when I remembered the super awesome trailers that back up against some mountains. The perfect setting and scene to play around with my windlight settings.. specifically shadows and sunset. Nothing like rocking ‘sexy casual’ on a Thursday 😉
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…

My awesome friend Bouncer posted this killer tee on his blog and I practically wanted to pounce him and rip it off of him, stealing it for myself. It’s from a new pair of designers on the market [ky] and I love the themes that Freddy and his partner (Kyani) are running with for their tees. Regrettably, I did not get to rip the tee off of his hot bod, but he was sweet enough to buy me one of my own.
Only one problem. No boobs. It’s true. The boys have made this killer tee, but when I put it on I have no boobs whatsoever (as pictured on the left). Ugh. Vivi loves her twins… and not the ones courtesy of Jose, although those are pretty funny (I’ll have to share one day). It’s true. I contacted Freddy who was super sweet and assured me that someday my boobs will come, but in the meantime, I added my own boobage courtesy of AYUMI‘s Breast and Cleavage Enhancer (grayscale & tinted). I’m sure this isn’t quite what they had in mind, but when there’s a will and all.. there are boobs.

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 😉
