The Little Cantina

52 Weeks - Ruby

“You said you wanted Mexican, Music, Tequila.. and I ended up at this little Cantina. I was hoping you’d find me…”

 

Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge presented Ruby. No, Ruby Slippers would have been way too easy and when I wandered into Tres Blah after checking out the new releases from lamb! I spotted this dress and it all fell into place from there. I love the alpha layer of the -TB- Mexican Peasant dress that does a pretty decent job of covering your ass, although I did lose the prim sleeves because I just couldn’t seem to get them just right no matter how hard I tried. The lily from Cake was a perfect little ruby red touch to the new hair release, Isolation, from lamb!. It’s like a loose, messy updo and I loved it. Almost as much as I loved the aqua beaded neclace, also from -tb-, to offset the red mexican peasant dress.

And now.. the Cantina story. Once upon a time there was a SIM called Mexico. There was a gorgeous cathedral, horseback riding, beaches, little shops, and I searched for it. I did find a Mexico SIM, but to my surprise when I landed all I saw was some guy and a chick on her knees in a rather…submissive position. Clearly, this wasn’t your mom’s Mexico. I quickly TP’d out of there with an apologetic IM to the SIM owner (?) who happened to IM me just as I was leaving.  Luckily, a few more searches landed me here. It was exactly what I was looking for and I would love to go back to it. Beautiful buildings, fountains, and that perfect Cantina.

I Like It Loud

52 Weeks - Neon Carrot

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.

Wild Eggplant

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.

Wedding Whimsy

It’s insane. Those wedding gowns that literally cost over 5,000L. Considering all the other details, the location, the flowers, the hair, the bridesmaid dresses, etc. .. it is truly enough to drive a bride mad! Even worse if you’re on a shoestring budget, or at least want something.. let’s say.. reasonable. After working on Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color listing for this current week.. White… I found some super cute white dresses that made me think.. hmmmm.. I bet this would make a pretty ‘alternative’ wedding gown. So, I sat on it. I kept it, and I am now proud to present a few of my picks for my very own SL Wedding Whimsy … aka.. “Wedding Dresses” for 600L or Less!

I kept the hair, jewelry, and footwear (there is none!) simple. These gowns are perfect for that Spring/Summer Wedding and are all available on the Marketplace!

The basics:

Hair: lamb! 
Eyes: LAQ
Skin: LAQ ~ Elena [Nougat}
Cleaveage: LAQ ~ Cleavage enhancer v2 Tattoo layer [Nougat]
Jewelry: MANDALA

Dress 1:  Kyoot – Pretty White Dress $150L

At the lowest end of the price spectrum, this dress is wonderful. It comes with the cute headband, but could easily be switched out for a flower or more traditional veil.

 

Dress 2: salt. summer romance vintage dress $250L 

(*Note: The cute ‘sleeves’ are prim, so as long as your arms are down, you won’t look like you’re wearing garters.)

 

Dress 3: {mon tissu} Crossroads Maxi Dress in White $465L

(note: This dress comes with a flexi skirt option and an alpha layer if you go with the non flexible prim skirt that makes your feet go MIA. Shoes with feet might come in handy.. unless you really want to float on air. )

 

Dress 4:  Paper Couture Crossroads Gown $600L

 (*Note: This does have the whole ‘skirt’ thing going on.. so a little butt editing is necessary to make it look “normal.”)

 


White and Dirty

They may see me rollin’ in Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, but don’t be hatin’ my version of Week 21’s Color – White! I’m definitely not nerdy, but I’m loving the White and Dirty of this leather jacket from none other than Rogue .. and yes, it is a store for the guys. (Let’s just say this is one gift I kept for myself!) Yes, yes, I’m still rocking the hair from lamb! and I had to pair this ‘dirty’ look with my knuckles, the cute Circus Jerk “panties” from Tarnished, the must have shades from Role Optic, and the Bax boots to match my red lipstick courtesy of LAQ.. now I just need the car to match.. or bike…

Nothing But Blue Skies

I love this color. Even better, I love this color when paired with either red or the pop of these hot pink wedges from Peqe. Time is flying by and it’s week 20 of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color, this time featuring the incredible Sky Blue. Yes, I am still in love with this hair from lamb!, see.. it works in so many different ways. I have to admit one of the things I like most about the whole challenge is all of the looks and designers I find. As challenging as it may get, nothing but blue skies do I see when it comes to all of the lovely, lovely options!

Umber is the Color of Your Energy

It is week 19 of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color  Challenge and I’m NOT hitting the last day.. yay!!!  This week eeeees Umber. I love the combination of chocolate shades and blue. They just work so very well together. I knew I wanted to post about this jacket from Mon Tissue as soon as I saw it, and I knew that it had to be paired up with something blue. Meanwhile, I am absolutely loving this hair from lamb! It’s part chic, part rock and roll, and works in countless ways that I may just stick with it for a bit. Maybe. I dunno. I swear, if RL hair was as easy to change up as SL hair, I’d be in heaven.

Lime in the Coconut

After I read lime, even electric lime for Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, all I could hear were the words “Put the Lime in the Coconut, you drank them both up” so naturally, I went to someplace tropical. I love this sunhat from GOS, it has a menu that lets you change the scarf color, the band, the brim (up, down – as pictured, flat), and all the extras. Toooooonnnnsss of combination options. I channeled my inner Rene Russo (a la The Thomas Crown Affair) and busted out this amazing red hair from lamb! and just the bottoms from The Whore Mansion.  I’m now ready for my beach chair, my cabana boy, and my coconut with lime.
