About colors

Hello,

Bobo Blue 2

Yesterday, I have been using another computer to show the last pictures I had taken to a friend. while I did that, I was struck by a change of the colors which were not at all the way I remembered them. They used to be a bit more vivid, asif a orange warm filter was applied all the time. Later, I told about this to a another friend who told me she was seeing them a bit whitsh and then advised me to check my screen settings. After some quick tests, it was quite obvious I was lacking some blue and green and have reajusted my screen settings.

I now see things quite differently. A fun detail is I have always thought my pictures had too much red or yellow so I was trying to correct them thanks to the curves in photoshop. Now, I see them much paler than what I thought. I guess I will have to change my windlight settings for the next pictures.

About the styling now. The new tunic and tied big belt from Fishy Strawberry have inspired me this hippie chic look with a new feather vest from So Many Styles (which I have slightly recolored to match the belt). For the chic part, the EXPERT hairstyle from LeLutka is adding a luxury touch.

I am also wearing the new skin from ADDICT, RAIA. I like the way it looks feminine and less sweet and young than a lot of other skins on my avatar. It is definately worth a try though it does not come with plenty of options like we are used to with many skins now, but dark and light eyebrows. You cannot change the eyeshadow or the lipstick with tattoo layers made specifically for Raia and the cleavage option is on the undershirt layer. Old viewers people will be happy to find a skin built the old way while new viewer peoples might feel like this is not enough. It is still a beautiful skin which should suit a lot of ladies.

Nautical Roller Girl

Hello,

Nautical 2

Don’t tell me you’ve missed it, nautical is the trend this summer. Well to me, it could work just for any summer. It is one of those timeless styles. You can play it very classical, elegant to leave for a journey on a yacht or more girly in a look somewhere between a roller girl and a sailor.

Nautical

To help me with the roller girl side, the very short shorts from The Secret Store works beautifully, helped by a scarf and a top from Emery. Add the Maitreya Moxie winter version with high tights to give that sweet young girl touch. As I don’t like it too girly, I have chosen this new hairstyle from Shag, a sexy and a bit savage updo which was pre-released for Project Themeory this last week-end.

Cappucino

Hello,

Cappucino 2

Zaara has new distressed jeans in several colors. I’ve picked the coffee one to play on the cappucino idea with a frilly top from Lo Momo and a poncho from Donna Flora in the role of the cream.

Cappucino 1

The new jeans have some interesting details like a pocket watch and they have four different kinds of legs: skinny, skinny-fold, straight and wide, which is awesome so you can wear them with about any shoes you like and have different styles in one purchase.

Duotone

Hello,

Mix 2

When I am creating a new style, I often like to work with two colors. One offers strong contrast with the other so rather than having everything blending together, it puts in evidence different items. At first, I had tried the new MichaMi “Its a Wrap” dress in chocolate tone to match a jacket from the LeLutka summer collection and flared pants and gloves from The Secret Store new releases. But the petrol color was better enhancing the outfit and showing the dress while a muted tone would have a bit hidden it. So once again, I have chosen a duotone theme for today’s look.
