~Patriarch~

Ive had to write this color down, just to remember the spelling!
PATRIARCH is our 38th  COLOR CHALLENGE this week. It wasn't difficult to match up the color, but the name certainly was. When you hear the name of this color, I think of something regal and royal, possibly in the royal blues, but purples? For the past 38 weeks, I have come across color names I never knew existed, for instance..Patriarch =)

This adorable ensemble I have on now is from *DIRAM* and I liked this sweet hat.  The sprig you see behind the hat came from *INDYRA ORIGINALS* and is meant to be a choker, but, I liked it with the hat and felt the sprig gave the hat just a tad bit of oomph. Speaking of oomph, I LOVE these eyes. They are from **FASHISM** and in the pale rose color. Clearly, one of the creator's  understated colors,(in his own words).   As for me, Ive spent just about 5 years on SL, and I was never attracted to a pink or purple eye color, mainly because I felt they were fantasy looking in appearance and not realistic. For some reason these eyes look natural, I suppose it is just because Ikon's eyes are really that good! I am just glad my curiosity got the best of me and I tried this color out, they are so very beautiful and for this week, a perfect accessory with our color challenge. Now, If I could just decide if I like the darker rose better than the lighter rose...ohhh the drama of making eye color decisions in SL! If only in RL could we do this without poking ourselves in the eyes with contacts. =)
Have a wonderful weekend! Next week our color is one of my favorite scented candles...Melon.
