- sheek - a misspelling of chic, as in fashionable or stylish. If you spell chic this way, you most likely have no clue what chic means... Pretty much sums it up! I blog what I like, and I like what I blog. Feel free to let me know if you like what you see. And thanks for checking out my blog!

Yet again, it has been a while since I posted a regular LOTD, but inspiration hit, so I went with it. I found a few pieces that I couldn’t live without, and luckily they worked well together. I’ve found that I gravitate toward rich browns, which isn’t necessarily bad news for a redhead. Anyway, here’s the look… hope you enjoy!
So, basically, this pic is me in RL today. I’m home sick from work feeling like crap, and I have pretty much been useless all day just lounging around in my warm pajamas. Being sick totally sucks, especially when there is so much to be done at work. Oh well. The work will still be there waiting for me when I’m better. Anyway, I figured I might as well knock out the color challenge for this week since I had not gotten to it yet. Please pardon my appearance… I’m sickly.
Alright… I was REALLY nervous about silver this week because I couldn’t really think of anything silver in my entire inventory (outside of jewelry, obviously). But then I remembered that I had tucked away this awesome dress for just the right occasion, and I dare say that this is the perfect time to use it. I summoned a few other goodies from my inventory, and voila! Silver is DONE. Oh, and I never would have guessed I had this much “silver” in my home furnishings folder, so the added decor was an excellent surprise!
I’ve had this green outfit more or less done since before Christmas, but I’ve been so busy with the holidays and traveling and work craziness that I haven’t had a chance to take any pictures until today. Anyway, I wanted to use a good mix of greens since “green” is pretty vague and all encompassing, so here you go. I’m a little apprehensive about silver, but I guess I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it. First things first… here’s green…
I wasn’t too thrilled about cerise this week. For some reason, I thought it would be much easier than it was. But in reality, I didn’t have as much cerise, or even pink, in my inventory as I thought. Sadness. I have been determined to use as much of my inventory as I can without buying too much (because my inventory is way, way, way too packed with unworn purchases and review copies), so I dug around in it and made do with what I could find. Oh, and I threw in some pinkish decor, too, because I felt like it. Not quite cerise, but a suitable backdrop for this look, nonetheless.
It has been a loooooong while since I posted a regular LOTD here outside of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, but I couldn’t sleep last night, so I played around with clothes instead. I have been wanting to put together a winter weather look with this adorable sweater (because hunter green is a redhead’s best friend), but I didn’t want it to end up looking like a Christmas outfit. However, I think this look worked out just fine for a late night/early morning clothing binge.
Yellow week is here, and I have to say… I’m not really a fan of yellow. Not in either life. But, for some reason, I had some yellow items hanging out in my inventory, so I threw them together and called it a day. And for fun, I threw in some decor, too. Enjoy!
I’m waaaay behind on getting my sepia post up (from my usual timeline, anyway), and I’ll admit that it wasn’t as easy as I’d hoped. What exactly IS sepia? The Wiki says it’s a dark brown-grey color, named after the rich brown pigment derived from the ink sac of the common cuttlefish Sepia. So I pretty much stuck with that definition of sepia and came up with a well-rounded mixture of rich browns. Sepia wasn’t easy at all, but I tried. So don’t give me crap about it being brown, k?
We’re four weeks into the color challenge, and I’m having more and more fun each week. I thought plum might be a bit difficult, mainly because there are so many different shades of purple to sift through in my inventory, but I really don’t think it was that bad. I decided to delve into my inventory rather than searching the grid like crazy this week, so I stuck to my platform and searched my clothing folders for hours. Since I like to mix and match, my plum outfit isn’t really plum through and through, but it does give an overall plum effect. And I kinda like it that way.
I’ll be honest… I struggled with this week’s color challenge a bit. I started off with another outfit that ended up looking too much like mustard, so I scrapped it. I was trying to stay away from lemon yellows and mustard yellows, so I experimented a bit and ended up with something a little gold-ish. So yeah, I failed. Big time. Oh well. I’m still determined to keep up with this weekly challenge, whether I fail or not.
