I created a special makeup for myself using one of the skins from my new Flawless Skins line called Envy. I will be selling this skin by request only at the moment as my skins are not ready for a full release (I am finishing up the makeup options still.) and along with that, I wore the Envy shape which was created especially for photographing the skins. Envy is also available on request and will soon be sold at Corrupted Innocence to the general public.
When I signed up for this challenge, I was hoping that I would be able to use a skirt made by my friend Daphne Daehlie at her ve.ne'ra.re store. It is a black chiffon skirt that you can either wear with pants under or a system skirt. The pants are a little lower around the waist so they tend to show a bit of belly with tops that you wear it with. Shmexy! So, I had my bangles and my skirt and my red lipped skin and wanted to find a top that went with the skirt. Glancing at the bangles, I realized that they were the same color as the red Beverly top made by Candy Enoch of A Piece of Candy. So, I tried that with the skirt from ve.ne'ra.re and voila....I had the base of my outfit.
I wanted to wear shoes that were dressy but that were not what I call "hooker" shoes so I turned to another good friend, Kakaue Yoshikawa from Kakaue Kreation and dug into my inventory for a pair of peep toes that matched perfectly. The problem is that I was not crazy about the bare leg showing. It didn't go with the overall look that I was going for. A few weeks ago, when I went to +JILL+ I saw some great tights that were FREE! One of them was a black pair with a red diamond disign all over them. I decided to try them and was so happy when I saw how great they looked. They completely tied the look together.
I was looking for some rose colored pearls to go with the outfit and stumbled upon a hair rose from Usagui that was burried in my over 160,000 item inventory (yeah, I swear it is really that big) and when I saw it I knew I had to wear that and the H2L Kaori hair that it was made to go with. I didn't forget about my pearls, though, as it turns out, they were cranberry and not rose colored. They are from a great jewelry store called Bonita's Jewelry that has low priced items that are done really well. The thing I love about these pearls is that they are actually in two pieces. They can be worn as the long piece, or the choker part, or you can combine the two and wear them both at the same time. So creative!
So I looked at myself and thought that there was something missing. I needed a bit of shine......some bling, minus the bling. I grabbed my favorite belt from Ume Mode which has color changing parts and was looking for some earrings when I remembered that I had a monocle from Sanu that I got from the lucky chair. Earrings would have been mostly hidden by the hair but the monocle stood out perfectly and gave my outfit that last little piece of quirkiness that it needed to be me. In the end, I looked like a gypsy or a Spanish/Piratey/Librarian as one of my friends put it. I really liked the look and wanted a great way to display it. With my creamy white skin, I reminded myself of a porcelain doll. So I went looking for a shelf to place myself on. No need to look very far. I just ran down to Ponk Bing's 1 Prim Wonders store and grabbed one of the one prim shelves to place my accessories and myself on. I put me and all of the accessories on the top shelf and snapped away. Honestly, if you have not seen Ponk's things, OMG, you have to! That shelf I am standing on is only half of the shelf and Ponk's prices cannot be beat! The shelf is complete with books, and a vase ( on the lower section - not pictured) all for only ONE PRIM!!!
Honestly, I had a great time doing this challenge and I would like to thank Sasy for putting this all together and Nieve for giving me plenty to choose from with her blogged outfit. I am praying that Sasy likes something from my outfit since she is up next! To find out what Sasy puts together, check out her blog!

Jimmy Chau has released a new heel to his growing collection, and it is now available at both Corrupted Innocence and Flawless. If you are a Shoe girl like me, this will make you super excited, and these are way cute!
The Shibaru heel is all kinds of classy and sexy both! It has a super high heel which is accented in metal, with a little chain subtly trailing off the back to add a dash of spicy detail.
Available in 4 colors: Black, Purple, Red and Sunny.
Price for each is L$399 or
FatPack ( 4 for the price of 3 ) L$1197
Come visit Jimmy's stores here at Corrupted Innocence or Flawless and pick up your pair.
I also would like to show you what else we now have here at Corrupted Innocence. Tired of running out of prims all the time, or keeping count of your used prim number, but do not want crapy quality furniture? We all deal with this at one time or another, but, I have good news for you. *Grins*
Ponk Bing IS the master sculpty maker, if you don't believe me then you need to come take a look. Ponk can make almost anything you ask him to in one prim, yes, one prim. It will not be crapy textures or look like one prim, it is good well done high quality stuff.
Ponk has just decided to put his things up for sale. Before this he wasn't interested in selling his creations. He enjoyed the process, the figuring out how to build whatever he was working on. Then it was shoved away into his inventory. But we have finally convinced him that people need these items. People have such limited prims but don't want poor quality in trade. He is now selling his creations! Come to Corrupted Innocence to have a look at them and try them out before you buy.
It is absolutely amazing to watch Ponk at work. I have yet to stump him on an item. He has always been able to make what we suggest and in one prim. Anyway, let me show you a few of his items. Although, the pictures do not do this stuff justice, you really need to come see them.
The Couches and Chairs are available in a variety of colors and both have multiple sit animations.
Remember, all are only 1 prim. See that bookshelf? I am still in shock I guess, You really need to see this.

These skins have been tested on several different shapes, seeing that Kira is a shape maker and has one of the largest selection of shapes in SL. The skin looked great on most all the shapes we tried so we are confident you will like the way it looks on yours. If not, well we sell shapes too. *grins* Seriously, please stop by and pick up a demo, at least, to try them out. I think you will be pleased with the amount of detail given and love the great price.

When I went to the RFL clothing fair I stumbled upon the store ElDee and fell in love immediatly. The RFL dress was the first thing I bought when I saw how well made it was and so adorable, I knew I had to get more of this designer; Lilyana Dryke's creations. The RFL dress and some other outfits at the fair have that pirate feel, but not so much that they look like a costume or something. Which fit with the the theme of her store there which was a pirate type ship, too cute. Anyway, I proceeded to buy about one of everything there, then I went to her main store, and found even more that I proceeded to get. That is another perk with Lilyana's things, they are very reasonably priced.
I IM'd friends to tell them about this little gold mine I found, some had already found her and never told me! The nerve! Anyway a couple days pass and then Poohta (the manager over ALBERO) IM's me and informs me that we now have ElDee at ALBERO! I was like oh YAY I have all of her stuff so I can easily get some pictures taken & blog her right away. I was excited to get to show you all. But, it doesn't end there. Then I am back at work at my main place which is Corrupted Innocence/Flawless where Kira and I were working on preperations for our media review party. I go to show her some of the ElDee stuff I found and she says, "oh I asked her to join Corrupted Innocence" LOL. So, now ElDee has a store here as well. The other night Lilyana and I hung out for a while and she is the sweetest girl, I am so pleased to have this talented designer nice and close so I get to see all new releases from here out. WOOT.
Okay, lets get on to the pictures!
First up is the Viva and Thaana. These are perfect spring dresses. They are sleeveless, bright spring colors in layers of airy flowing fabric finished off with pretty ribbon ties. This is just a sample of the many colors available, so please visit to see the entire selection.
Next is the Kiki. Kiki also comes in more colors then the sample I have shown here. This ensemble includes high waist trousers that sort of have a sailor pant feel to them with a beautiful silky halter top and a scarf to finish off.The textures are just beautiful subtle hints of color bring it together perfectly.
The Kali Dress is an plaid print with ruffles layered under the knee length skirt, the back has cute ribbon that ties in a small bow adding a little extra spark to the back of the dress. These look great in many different ways too, heels for a casual dress or put on some engineer boots and stockings and change it up completely.
Ok, now my naughty and nice duo. The Panze, which is the 'nice', is full of colorful pansy's on a light springy/summer fabric. The Zana on the other hand is a bit on the more risque side, showing more skin and no flowers here, it's time to get wild when you put Zana on.
My last item to show you, is one which I feel very close too, being that I wore it for like a week straight, or it felt like I did. I had camera resolution trouble with the new viewer and had to retake these photos 3 times LOL (don't ask, i'm still sort of new so haven't learned some things that I am choosing to learn the hard way, I like to do things the hard way, waist time and get behind on everything. It's cool *insert sarcastic face*). Anyway, the Culpa and I, spent a lot of time together and I can't tell you how many compliments I received when wearing it. I will just leave it there that is all that needs to be said.
That concludes this post FINALLY! *flops down on her back letting out a sigh of relief* hehe So now the ball is in your court, visit Corrupted Innocence and check out ElDee. I did mention how reasonable her prices are, right?
