52 Weeks of Color Challenge – Patina

Week Five: Patina
January 29 – February 4

Welcome to Week 5 of the 52 Weeks of Color challenge! Are you ready to see my interpretation of Patina? Me too! ^^ But what the heck is patina, anyway?

Have you ever seen a greenish penny? Or the Statute of Liberty, perhaps?  The green is actually the physical evidence of a metal oxidizing when it has been exposed for a long period of time to the environment. I learned at Wikipedia that this is a good thing because it prevents the metal from further corroding, preserving the metal.


Patina was harder than what I thought it would be. When I was shopping, I would many times see a blue and a green color, and I wished I could just mesh the 2 together and get patina – lol. But finally I settled on this Pietra bodysuit from R.icielli. The jeweled accents on the shoulder area really make this bodysuit special.

This week at The Dressing Room, Glam Affair has a skin called Linn in a light tone – Primavera. When I tried it on, I was very pleased at how it looked, despite the fact I don’t wear light skins for my everyday wear. So if you like how it looks too – head down there! Nothing at TDR costs more than 70L, so you will get tons of quality at a low price.

RezIpsa Loc has these Patina heart stockings on sale, so I decided to get them to wear with my bodysuit. I chose Akasha to take this set of photos because it felt secluded and a bit of mystery to it. The area with the pillars were great to take photos because depending on what angle I shot from, the sky had a warm glow or bright surroundings.

Hmm…I know people like to list names of places that they visited, and poses that they use. It’s hard for me to name poses because I flip through them quickly, and then to look at which pose I have in particular sort of disrupts my flow. As for not listing the places I go to take pictures, I’m just lazy ^^ But let’s see…for the first photo I used a Glitterati Beauty head shot pose. When I went to Akasha, I believe my poses were all from Olive Juice (why are they closing ;( ).

Thanks for stopping by, and see you next time!

    Very sensual look and I love the place and pics!
    For poses I usually just list the maker not the actual pose (wish OJ wouldnt close); the places are nice to list for others to go visit 🙂

    In the 2nd pic, I was noticing how the leggings together with the bodysuit elongate you so elegantly. As Ani says, statuesque. And yea, the embellishment on the body suit really sets it apart from the crowd.
