52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Emerald

This week's color in the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge is Emerald. When I hear the word emerald, I think of Ireland and St. Patty's Day so what better place to take some pictures than Ireland's own Claire Castle. I've never been to Ireland before but found the castle to be pretty in a simple kind of way and it fits in nicely with my pictures.

As soon as I saw that the color for this week was emerald, I was happy. It's such a pretty color, rich and vibrant. Alas, my happiness was soon cut short when I realized I couldn't find anything I liked enough to blog until I decided to check out the store closing sale at Phoenix Rising. As you all know, I'm a new blogger and haven't broadened my Second Life shopping horizons until recently. I'm super sad that I didn't know of this store before I started blogging because the things I found in this store were absolutely breathtaking. I probably dropped like 250 lindens which I know doesn't sound like a lot but when you realize that absolutely everything in the store is 25 lindens, you see that it is a lot! Since I fell in love with the designs here, I decided to see if they had anything in emerald and was ecstatic to find this beautiful satin gown. This gown is exactly what I had in mind for emerald so enjoy!
