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!!

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…
Lingerie: *Fishy Strawberry*
Shoes: Pixel Mode
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…
Dress: The Sea Hole (group gift)
Heels: Pixel Mode
Chiming in on week 23 of Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color is Asparagus. Personally, I love the stuff. The flavor, the possibility of some softness or some crunch. Either way, it’s good on the plate and it’s good for the visual palette. I picked up one of the new Washed Out Tanks from MichaMi (several colors available) and I love the sheerness across the midriff and the back and just a hint of sheerness across the breasts without totally giving up the goods.
The stockings, hipsters (yes, I AM wearing panties!) and the garter belt all hail from Dutch Touch. I adore them.. the stockings have a rolled option and a garter option if you decide to go sans garter belt. The onliest thing is for some odd reason, whenever I wear the garter belt on the pants layer, my ankles flare out, and since it’s no mod I can’t fix them. Thank goodness for Viewer 2 and their multi-layer option, can just add it on top and I’m good to go. They have a ton of colors to choose from over at Dutch Touch, each time I pick up another color I feel like I really should have just sucked it up and bought the entire fat pack. Oy.
I’m still loving the Robin’s Egg blue necklace from Mon Tissue and the heels from Pixel Mode. Green and blue just go well together. Like asparagus and lemon.
Tank: (new!) MichaMi
Lingerie: Dutch Touch
Necklace: Mon Tissu

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.
Panty Girdle: Deetalez Lace Panty Girdle in Black (also comes in white – both 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!
Perhaps I’m a slacker, coming in at the last day of the week for Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge… but I’m in love. It’s true. Yes, Pixel Mode got me right here.. right in the heart with these new Lady T: Gloss heels (in Sunshine)! At first, it was simply lust, what got me hook, line and sinker? The skin tone matching notecard that came by clicking on that handy dandy little ‘HELP’ button! Someone took a helluvah lot of time to go through some of the larger skin brands and provide a cheat sheet that will help you perfectly match your ‘feet’ to the rest of your body and believe you me, that attention to detail.. to knowing what I need before I know I need it? That’s what got me. So yes, I am in love. You should definitely fall in love, too.
