I'm going to be talking about a few things in this post today and not only Luna's 52 Week of Color Challenge. First off, only five more weeks left and I'm both a little relieved and saddened by this. Doing these little color challenges have been so much. They helped provide the motivation I needed when my blogging became stagnant. I'm going to miss them when they are over, but will also enjoy completing the final set Luna has lined up for us.
At first I thought finding an outfit in Khaki would be impossible, but once again I underestimated the wonderful content designers of Second Life. Thankfully, I managed to compete a look in Khaki. The one item I decided was an absolute must in my outfit was this warm pink cardigan from Tee*fy. I will say that Azure provides wonderful customer support and was very quick and helpful when I had a small mishap with Second Life eating my Cardigan. I absolutely love this Sweater and hope that Azure releases more that are similar, it provides so much softness and warmth for fall.
Pointing out one other special item I'm wearing is New skin from Adam and Eve. Once I saw Ariadne I thought it was too cute not to use in today's post. I am planning on using this skin for a while and taking a deeper look at Ariadne in the future. Also I did take the time to complete a full post on MIEL's Puddle Boots, they are designed so beautifully and have so many options. Please take a peek at, "On Your Toes" for more information and some close up shots.
Last but certainly not least I want to talk about Luna Jubilee again. (She's mentioned a lot in my posts) Luna is a dear friend and I happen to think she is a wonderful creator and visionary. She has completed so many things in Second Life and provided so much to our community. Her newest venture is LUJU Homes. She designed her first home Great Hopes and has it ready to view and purchase at her store.
Great Hopes is small in prims, but not tiny. Sitting pretty at 29 prims this home is dressed in Khaki and browns making it ideal for fall. So far I managed to create both a working and living space using the home. My favorite aspect of this home is the sliding doors. Each door slides across to the left and remains in its position until you click and direct it to move. I can't wait to see what Luna will create for us in the future she really has so much talent and creativity that the possibilities are endless.

As I've been exploring L'Abel's new fall line I noticed two outfits which exuded Office Chic, Mikki (shown above) and Miss Charlie (shown below) command respect and demand you be taken seriously by saying, "I'm the boss". These two suits says are wonderfully styled creating a balance of female empowerment and fashion trend. Tailored cut to show all your attributes these dark smoky charcoal gray hues are lively and perfect in accommodating any color you wish to accessorize with. The extra details added to each outfit such as the belt, flower pin (shown on Mikki) or black fur lined collar (shown on Miss Charlie) only illustrate how much care and detail Nef places into her work.
I really enjoy how Nef's has created her fall line. Each piece has been crafted to incorporate a style for any discerning women, by maintaining both a sensual and demure appearance. Wearing L'Abel provides the ultimate sense of confidence because when wearing L'Abel you know you are sporting the best of SL.
I am planning on writing one more post on L'Abel's fall line to showcase the beautiful elegance that Nef has to offer.

When Amara Myoo of Avale recently sent me a package that contained her newest release Lastadia my mind instantaneously swirled to Katy Perry's Last Friday Night Video, which I love BTW. Lastadia is a sexy party dress and it's perfect for hitting the clubs at the start of the weekend, like on Friday. Available in eight different color options for both the top half and bottom half of the dress. This means you can mix and match each design to create your unique look in your favorite color. Wearing Lastadia is so much fun and a perfect way to release your inner vixen.

Keeping up with my 52 weeks of Color Challenge commitment today's Post is all about Brick Red. Funny little side note, I kept singing "Brick House" while putting this outfit together. (I know I'm silly) Next Week's Color Challenge is Khaki...bleh
When I first saw L'Abel's newest release Vada, which is part of the new fall line, I knew I had to blog it because of the Hounds-tooth print. Something about this print screams fall to me. When I saw that it was available in Red I knew it would be perfect for this color challenge. What I love most about the Vada design is that L'Abel has added an edge to a classic look by creating short trousers with an extremely seductive cut. The jacket is available in both an open and closed option providing you with more versatility for your stylizing. I do plan on posting more from the new line, so let's consider this a teaser to that post. Vada is available in both Red and black and Black and white color combination.
A special Thank you to Harlow Heslop for providing a wonderful location tip. She recommended Pre fablous as a spot which had a good looking barn and she was right. Thank you Harlow! Big hugs to you.

Whooo Hoo!! I finally caught up on Luna's 52 week of color Challenge and will be on track for the remainder of the time that's left, which is only 7 more weeks. I can't wait to see what colors Luna has lined up for us. I hope she throws us some pink towards the end. Next Week's Color is Brick Red.
I might be slightly cheating on this challenge because my dress is not completely bronze but is more of a gold color. I really couldn't help it because I fell in love with this dress from CLEO Couture. Gold Shimmies as this dress is called is a fun retro flapper inspired dress. Encased with bits of Gold, Bronze and Silver this dress is designed to move as you grace the dance floor or strut your finest walk. CLEO Couture has a large selection of formal and retro inspired gowns and is a bit of Old Hollywood Glam. I can't wait to see what Cleo creates next.
I recently went shopping for some shoes and found some great pumps at Shiny Things for more information on the shoes please check here...I have completed an entire post dedicated to their beauty.
The Look- Bronze Party
Hair- Shag- Bombshell- Truffle
Skin-Glam Affair- Jadis-Natural B
