hi, have you seen my awesome chair?

11.02.2012

my chair has horns and a raven. my chair > your chair.

i have this chair because i wanted something funky to pose with for my look for today. there really was no *need* for a chair, but i found this one at handverk (because maybe.. just maybe.. i was there eying up a few more pairs of heels, y’know, to go with my sweet pink penis pumps) and i was compelled to buy it. i mean, it has horns(!) and a raven(!!).. what more needs to be said?

so to not detract from the awesomeness of this chair, i decided to dress understated and demure…….. with gray skin, purple-tipped ears, red eyes and some crazy eye makeup. ..*coughs*

anyway! my look for today is a combination of a few things i wanted to show off, so let me touch on ‘em here before i get too sarcastic. these huge platform’d boots i’m wearing are from sakide and if you act *fast*, they might still be available to grab! they were a 100L special for halloween and, as i’m sure you’re aware, halloween is over… but these boots are still great for beyond just halloween. they’re textured with spider webs and such, but it’s subtle and you really have to look close to see the pattern… which means these *won’t* be sitting in the bottom of my inventory until next october. they’re thigh-high and *mesh* and i really, really liked these. go scope out sakide if you’d like them, i hope they’re still out!

11.02.2012

this gorgeous collar && earring set i’m wearing here by amorous is out @ the tomorrow today charity event. if you’d like more information on the event, please click and read through the blog posts by matchbook monday. there are lots of designers set up at the event and, in turn, lots of goodies to snag in the hopes of helping matchbook raise money. matchbook monday is one of my own personal favorites when it comes to jewelry, but not *only* because her designs are flawless. she is a really sweet person — the few times i’ve had the pleasure of talking to her, she’s been *nothing* but kind and friendly and incredibly generous — and i honestly hope this event goes well for her. plus, you’re getting some awesome items in return (if you’re a hair junkie like i am, make sure you poke your head into the truth && wasabi pills stalls!), so if you’re inclined… visit the event and browse around~

another event with new stuffs is fameshed… and the new collection is *amazing*. the first thing i had my eye on was this hairstyle i’m wearing here from exile. this updo looked, to me, almost like a messy-bun-mohawk && i seriously fell in love. the style is perfection, it is one of my absolute favorites to date from exile, and i love that it worked so well not only with the jewelry i’m wearing…

…but also with these *ears*, which are a collab between ni.ju and trap. they are pierced a thousand ways && are completely customizable — not only does each ear set come with a hud for recoloring everything (the skintone, tips, piercings.. even the highlight and shadow are color-change), but they’re *also* fully mod which allowed me to recolor a few of the piercings by themselves. they were a breeze to tint, full of such wonderful detail, and really worth picking up!

short shorts

one of my favorite pieces in my virtual wardrobe.. is a good pair of denim shorts. for the upcoming warmer months, nothing is easier to work with than a great pair of shorts. they match with pretty much anything you could think of, from tees to tanks to bikini tops, and denim cutoffs especially are a nice blend of cute, neutral && casual.

04.24.2012

this *new* pair of jean shorts i grabbed from izzie’s are so cute… and are just short enough, definitely not too short if you know what i mean! seeing them almost immediately made me think of summer sunshine, so i *had* to have ‘em~

the belt is from izzie’s too && came in a pack that made it a steal. five different leather textures, two different metals, and it comes in versions with a resizer or without… all in mesh! \o/

04.24.2012

and speaking of mesh… i am *so* in love with the latest mesh releases from mon tissu. super cute halter dress, more denim shorts (yaaay! \o/), && the ruffle-hem tank i’m wearing here. soft, pretty colors with all those lovely details in every last ruffle… yum, i was sold on these tanks before i even got to demo.

i’m wearing the sheer version of the tank here (you get a normal version && a sheer version with each color), with another tank underneath (from sakide), for a more layered look… but honestly? the sheer version isn’t *so* sheer that i’d be flashin’ my tatas all over the place had i decided not to wear a second top underneath. i really like that, especially since the sheer version looks so delicate && light.. which was perfect for the look i was going for.

i broke out some pixelmode wedge sandals from last year && this dip-dyed ponytail from magika both to add a bit of pink… just because i could. ;p and i revisited a sim i snapped pics on in one of the first posts i wrote after getting my new, souped up computer. in fact, it was the first sim i dropped in on to take a pic with shadows enabled, period. nicely landscaped, with lots of green, and it’s the home to pivaaca, too — it made a lovely background for some springtime snapshots.

but it was hard, lemme tell ya, not to venture over into the store part of the sim && go shopping. ugh. #secondlifeproblems

sort of a quickie post for today!

this round of stumblebum is still going on for a few more days && there’s *lots* of awesome goodies to snag on sale. everything is in shades of yellow, orange and red… like this tank top i’m wearing, from dcny, which is actually part of a pack of three for only 95L.

03.24.2012

you can *never* have enough tank tops for spring && summer — they are great for something simple, like i’m wearing here with a *new* mesh denim mini from sakide, or for layering with other tanks or tees or jackets (or for wearing on top of bikinis!). and these tanks not only come in gorgeously bright, saturated colors.. but they’re also nicely textured with a li’l something different, like they’re made of a silkier, draped fabric rather than regular ole cotton~

03.24.2012

plus, intrigue co has the most *adorable* set of mesh gloves out for stumblebum… in the shape of betta fish. how cute are these?!

the effects of boredom && smeared lipstick

so. for the lingerie challenge, i’ve been trying to recruit my friends into posing with me.. just because it’s def more fun that way. you get *double* the dose of undies if i’ve got a friend here with me && that is always a good thing! so far i’ve gotten bff vivi && lars to pose, and today.. i convinced my friend braden daines to strip down to his unmentionables and take some time out to pose with me for some piccies.

02.09.2012

…the only trouble is, i *just* started re-reading the harry potter books (and i’m currently on goblet of fire, my favorite out of the series!) && you know how it is when you first dive into a book that captures your interest — you pretty much want to *read* and nothing but and well. my attention was on the book more so than on braden.

his attention span, sadly, is like that of a goldfish. if he doesn’t have something immediately in front of him, braden gets bored… and gets bored fast. but i wanted to finish just one more chapter (which was after i’d already used the just one more chapter excuse.. two chapters previously) && braden was getting antsy.

02.09.2012

look at mr. whiny mcwhinyface, who saw fit to pout about how bored he was getting.

y’know, the whole.. “why isn’t she paying attention to me? ;_; …. WHY ISN’T SHE PAYING ATTENTION TO ME!?? DX” drill. he thought plopping down on the end of the bed and sniffling loudly might grab my attention back, or that sitting *right* on top of me to melodramatically wail about his sorrows would have me put the book down… but neither plan worked.

..until he threatened to leave, because it was sooooo rude of me to invite him to take pictures and then leave him behind for a book. which, to be fair, is kiiiinda true~

so i put the book down, however reluctantly, and gave him some much-needed attention.

02.09.2012

funny how a few kisses can suddenly turn a pouting boy into a happy man, isn’t it?

once we got started… it was sorta hard to stop. just like with the book, when something is *good*.. you don’t really wanna pull away. for a li’l while, braden && i completely forgot we were supposed to be taking pictures (oopsies!) and instead, got caught up in the moment.

but! being the *professional photographer* i am (heh, hardly!), i reigned us both in before things got too heated. we had a shoot to finish, after all, and my blog is totally just as important as dotting braden’s entire body with kisses. ..wait, i mean… …*ahem*.

so! without hesitation, we fixed the bed ;) and hopped out to take one last snap so i’d have the pics to blog with..

02.09.2012

but i totes shoulda checked my makeup first. ah well…

in venice

so bff vivi && i, in our exploration, found an area in world modeled after the beautiful city of venice (on an aptly-named sim called prada, no less!).. and we were immediately enthralled with the buildings, bridges and canals. and in our infinite wisdom (ahahah), we decided it was a perfectly fitting backdrop to show off some of the newest mesh goodies we picked up. the latest fashions, in venice, by prada.. see, it totally works! xD

12.27.2011

maitreya has been on a roll with mesh releases as of late — and all of them have been *amazing*. first the boots, dress && purse that vivi’s wearing.. then the sweater and boots i’ve got on (along with a ton of other new things!).. all of which come in some fantastic colors and, as expected, lovely and realistic textures. the shape on the dress totally gives you an hourglass figure && the scooped, open back on the green sweater i’ve got on is equally sexy.. maitreya is always good for gorgeous things, but these new mesh items are seriously above and beyond. *u*

12.27.2011

i’m also wearing one of the *new* mesh mini skirts from mon tissu. like the longer pencil skirt i blogged previously from mon tissu, the mini skirt is also a combination of clothing layers && a mesh insert. it makes fitting an absolute breeze and the fact that it’s partially mesh means not only do i not have to fiddle, but it also moves so nicely with any animations or poses i put myself in. wearing skirts like these, or just mesh in general, really spoils you.. because now i’m not so fond of the good ole prim crotch piece that usually accompanies short skirts. it makes me excited for the day when everybody upgrades to mesh compatible viewers && even more designers delve into the wonders of mesh. /me sighs dreamily~

12.27.2011

and of course, vivienne && i could not resist rockin’ it out with our new stuffs too. that’s one of the awesome things about separates as nice as the ones from maitreya, mon tissu or even beetlebones.. who made the mesh studded leather jacket i’m wearing in the look above. sure.. a hot pink pencil skirt works for more “classic” looks if i’d styled the outfit that way, but it also works for more “rockabilly” inspired looks, too. well-made pieces *transcend* (good word, there!) styles && if it’s a classic silhouette.. it’ll work for whatever sort of look you’re goin’ for~

plus that hot pink.. i had to have it!

88 is a magic number

collabor88 is an awesome thing. like, so awesome i wish i could give a big ole hug to *all* the designers participating. granted, it made my inventory overflow.. but in really, really good ways. \o/

you could give yourself an entire makeover for very few lindens at this sale. there’s shapes, eyes, hair, skins, shoes && a ton of cute clothes. on top of furniture and poses, too. @_@ all for so cheap, it’s almost redonkulous.

bff vivi && i were there the first night it opened, scoopin’ up cheapies.. so i thought we ought to show off some of the stuffs we acquired. any excuse to use some super cute gliteratti poses (which, btw, is having a SALE atm!! weeee~).

grixdale has a goodbye pack set out @ collabor88 and it is stuffed full of goodies. several dresses && makeup tattoos… makes me both happy and sad. but the dresses vivi && i are both wearing are from the grixdale pack and are *super* cute. so girly in pastels, with frills and adorable patterns… and the lovely texture && prim work that tyr rozenblum is so very good at.

and our hair… it has been all over *everything*, and with good reason. both of these styles are from elikatira && are just so pretty. my favorite of the two is definitely the one vivi is wearing, it’s so soft and whispy and all the colors are just .. gorgeous. and for 88L per color pack? vivi && i totally stocked up — i even bought colors i don’t even wear because it’s just so cute.

boom and whippet and buck also have awesome (and inexpensive) items at collabor88. the top vivi is wearing is actually part of a set of *two* that you get from boom — all in bright ice cream inspired colors. and the top from w&b that i’m wearing is actually something i debated back and forth on buying. i wasn’t sure if it was me, but it was cute, and then i couldn’t pick a color… but i am *so* glad i eventually bought it. it even has poofy sleeves! who can really, honestly say no to poofy sleeves?! when they are nice as these, i know i sure can’t. ;p

if you haven’t been, you should definitely go. it runs for a month, until september 8th, when the collection will change. it makes me excited, if it’s a recurring sale, ’cause the first round? was a total win imho!

urban

for the last several posts, i’ve had girly hair. cute updos, long && curly, ponytails, headbands, braids… if it’s feminine, i’ve been wearing it.

so for the past few days in world, i’ve been feelin’ the *butch* hair for a change. shaved sides, lots’a spikes, super short. don’t get me wrong, i like the whole girly thing. i can rock it just as well as the next chick. but i’m not always a girly-girl. i can grunge it up && punk it out every once in a while when it comes to hair!

8.04.2011
click to see it larger @ flickr!

my entire look today was built around my hair. raw house is fast becoming a favorite of mine for spikes && streaks. *tons* of stores sell softer hair, styles that are sweet and lovely and … y’know… all wispy tendrils and shit. but the hair i like from raw house is on the total opposite side of the spectrum from that && i am lovin’ it (bada ba ba bahh).

plus, okay, i know it’s really shallow of me but hellooooooo hotties in the vendor ads. having attractive avatars in the vendors *totally* makes me wanna buy just ’cause. and i am a sucker for guys in that body co skin … mmmh. /me is tempted to lick the picture….

plurk is just.. so awesome sometimes (and not just cause i’m on it addmeokaythanks), because *two* of the items i’m wearing are from suggestions i got from plurk friends.

first, is the skin. it is a group gift from chain and vine — a brand i sadly hadn’t heard of before. but thanks to harlow heslop, i am now in *love* with this face. i know, i know.. i did go a little nutty with the makeup tattoos on top of it, but you’ll just have to join the group && snag the skin yourself to see what it looks like sans eye shadow/lipstick. it’s gorgeous though, you won’t be disappointed. and, best part about it? it comes in an entire range of skin tones! \o/

and my sneakers. i plurk’d, asking about new sneakers.. and aly warwillow suggested 2real. and what a suggestion it was, these sneakers are freakin’ killer. absolutely every li’l bit of these shoes are texture change via hud, a nice && easy to use hud at that, with a slew of different fabrics from plain to patterned. definitely worth the price, ’cause you get.. like… eleventy billion options all in one shoe. options = love && i enjoy customizing the hell out of an outfit.

besides, just clicking textures and picking parts of the shoe to colorize was fun. i could’ve been in my skybox for *days* making myself 32482348 new pairs of shoes. weeeeee~

girly

i tend to wear a lot of jeans… and shorts… and tiny mini skirts.. here on my blog. but! yes, i can actually dress like a *proper* girly~girl from time to time, thank you very much.

it’s a nice change every once in a while. ;p

my super feminine look today actually is thanks to the adorable haru skirt from rebel xtravaganza. i am gonna be honest && say that i don’t own many skirts like these, they’re *usually* not my personal cup of tea. but after the lovely rouge darcy dropped these on me && i actually tried them on… i realized how fucking adorable they are! how can i say no to such a cute skirt?! it’s even flower print, for goodness sake.. you can’t get much girlier than that. this particular design was my favorite color combo too, surprisingly, because when given a choice… 9 times out of 10 i’ll grab for black rather than light blue floral. but this one is so pretty && i loved it as soon as i put it on.

the skirt is one sculpted piece, which can make fitting it a little difficult. luckily for me, it fit almost exactly right out of the box.. which was nice, for a change. anything that goes around the waist (belts, especially!), i tend to have a hard time getting to fit correctly. they either end up too wide around the hip but fit fine in the front && back, or wide enough around the hip but not the right shape for my waist. this skirt, however, was *just* the right shape to settle nicely on my hips with a li’l tweaking. \o/ having a butt/hip alpha helps with fitting, too. i had one in my inventory from another skirt (the seasons hunt prize from so many styles includes a butt alpha if you need one!) and it made a big difference.

my only complaint is that there aren’t matching glitch pants, which wasn’t an immediate problem with my own AO or while posing.. but. if you have an …*active* AO, your legs && butt might poke out from time to time. otherwise though, it’s suuuuper cute && comes in a ton of color choices.. definitely worth checkin’ out if you’d like to prance around with me and be a girl for a change. ;)

this week must be, like, *the* week to have a sale if you happen to sell hair in sl… i blogged over the weekend that magika was having a sale && now ploom is, too! many, many hair styles are discounted to half off and bff vivi && i hit up the sale to snag some new ‘dos. i’m always amazed when a store i *love* is having a sale… and not for a reason you might think. i mean, yeah, you tend to see some.. uh… interesting people at big sales like 50% off. your lindens go further && you come home with a ton of new goodies. but, sometimes you end up forgetting just how cute some of the items are that you haven’t seen in a while. or, in my case, you actually demo hair styles you never would’ve thought you’d like.. and then you end up buying them because they are even cuter than you imagined they’d be. *o* i definitely tend to give *everything* a try when there’s a sale on, even things i never paid attention to, and it’s like everything is all new && wonderful again!

i couldn’t even remember seeing the hair i’m wearing when it was released.. but i snagged it in blonde so fast, it would’ve made your head spin~ i picked up quite a few pink hair styles too, y’know, to stock up for bubblegum weekends~ ;3

all i need now is for truth to have a massive sale and my inventory would asplode with hair awesomess from my top 3 faves for hair. oh, wouldn’t that be lovely… *hint… hint hint… hinthinthinthinthint*

if i could describe today in one word.. it would be.. overwhelming. in a *really* good way.

oh, and..

6.24.2011

did i forget to mention i got an amazing new computer? ;)

said amazing new computer runs, literally, eleventy bajillion times better than my old one. i was stuck in a pose stand inside a white box to blog — just because i had to keep my graphics settings low at *all* times. but now?

now i can run with shadows on… with beautiful graphics.. and i can finally see how truly gorgeous second life can be. i can also see how truly gorgeous my avatar can be, too. …*coughs*

so today! i bring you pinup-esque awesomeness, complete with a cameo from the always wonderful bff vivi. and i am so pumped to show off pictures that i can’t even stand it!!

just.. please be kind. it’s my first time pretending i’m a second life photographer. ;p if things look a little wonky, just chalk it up to me being a photog-virgin, mmkay?

i love that vivienne indulges me sometimes. i mean, she patiently stands around.. in a static pose.. while i fiddle with shit && she’s happy to do so (at least, methinks she is..). but i think, perhaps, she *enjoyed* posing with me today. she was a li’l bit o’ eye candy while i played around with windlights and shadows and depth of field and blah blah blah..

the high-waist shorts she’s wearing are from ricielli and i swear.. that brand is out to kill my wallet. there’s currently a huuuuge sale going on, that i have yet to *ravage*, but vivi’s already visited and picked up an entire year’s worth of sexy stuffs. there was that cheapie hunt not long ago, and now the sale.. i promise you, the entire store will find its way into our inventories over the weekend.

she paired the shorts with a dollarbie top from toxic kitty. and i know, okay, fourth of july is still a ways off. but the whole nautical theme kinda goes hand in hand with *patriotism* && even though technically it was vivi’s idea to be sailor pinups

..i decided to go with it because of the *super* sexy new swimwear from candydoll.

the suit i’m wearing is red, white && blue.. but there are a bunch of other color choices. they all come complete with button detail on the front and *adorable* bow attachments for the chest and on the back. i love the way it’s designed, too — li’l cut outs on the side, the halter neck, and the textures are so smooth. i’d live in a swim suit like this, if i could.

and i suppose i actually can.. it is sl after all. x3

i know socks aren’t typical *beach wear*, but my heels from maitreya needed some love. i bought them last year during their sale (summer = sales, i swear!), but plopping ‘em on today made me realize just how well-made these shoes are. so yeah, i’ll wear socks if i wanna while on the beach. they match && they look good. problem?!

i realize my post for today may be a bit… all over the place. but i’m still sitting here, as i type this post, looking very much like this :: @___@ ! and i promise, no more vixxie in a white box unless i’m doing skin-related stuffs, it’s easier to see the skin when it’s on a plain background. and you gotta know, a post for elly is in the works for this weekend. a skin i’ve waited this long for definitely needs it’s own post!

huntin’ for zombies

the zombie popcorn hunt is one of my absolute *favorites*. i missed the last installment, but bff vivi && i were able to take on number four together.

there are so many awesome things in this hunt. always are. some of my favorite shops are included && this hunt has helped me in the past, and has helped me this time around, find some new favorite places for cute shit (*coughcough* villena, i’m lookin’ at you~ *coughcough*).

she && i tried to pack on as many of the hunt gifts as we possibly could, so let us start with vivi’s half of the look for today…

6.05.2011

vivienne’s look centers around the hunt prize from paperdoll. it’s so super cute && in a nice shade of dusty lavender. i’ve been blogging paperdoll goodies since i started and i’ve *never* been disappointed with anything i’ve gotten from there — hunt gifts included! the dress is adorable && even includes the little matching belt!

the nom && necklace is the gift set out by laciecakes && is in the brightest shade of bubblegum pink i think i’ve ever seen! hunt prizes of jewelry are always appreciated, i never seem to have enough necklaces.. bracelets.. rings.. and this one in particular is cute ’cause you can munch away on it. shame it’s not made out of candy~

6.05.2011

the pretty silver ring vivi’s wearing is the prize from sigma && the piercings on her lips are from ipoke. wearing multiple attachments is so awesome because it allows you to wear some fierce nails (like the ones vivi’s sporting, from candy nail) with a separate ring, or wear two sets of piercings that would otherwise bump each other off. and vivienne is of the same opinion i am: the more holes in yo’ face, the better!

now while bff vivi is all cute && girly… i, on the other hand…

6.05.2011

…am decidedly *not*. eh heh.

that’s the fantastic thing about the zombie popcorn hunt… the prizes vary. some are adorable and sweet and workable casual clothes. and then some are blood and safety pins in your nose and decaying eyeballs. which, suffice it to say, is something i quite enjoy. ;3

my torn up top && jean shorts are hunt prizes — the top is from ancayi, while the cute shorts are from american bazaar (both of which you might remember from a post i wrote the other day?) . the shirt is *really* fun for a li’l zombie cosplay, but the jean shorts? totally wearable, especially for this time of year. and — just as a head’s up — there are several cute pairs of shorts as hunt prizes this go ’round!

even though it’s covered in bruises, gashes, obscene amounts of blood && gore, the skin i’m wearing is the hunt prize from glam affair && is actually quite pretty. i don’t usually *do* tones this pale, but exceptions can always be made for skins like this. it’s gooooooooooorgeous~ this skin has two of the perdiest, juiciest lips i’ve seen on a freebie skin. and, to my surprise, came with *two* options for brows… the lighter ones i’m wearing && there’s a darker set as well.

i know it’s a li’l hard to see, ’cause i’ve got *so* much goin’ on in my look for today, but the knife strapped to my arm (y’know, cause a zombie girl’s gotta protect herself, right?) is the hunt prize from virtual insanity. it includes another goodie i’m not showing, so you’ll just have to go ‘n’ hunt it out for yourself to see~

the piercings i’m wearing are just.. amazing. i love them && they look so, so painful. they are the prize from razorblade jacket and come with a bunch of different options — including some bloody tattoo layers to make it look like the safety pins are freshly poked through. which works for what i’m going for, teehee, but the piercings look just as nice without the extra gore.

vivi && i have just about finished the hunt, but i am looking forward to number five.. ’cause… there will be a number five, right?(??!?!) hunts are amazing for more than just freebies, even if the freebies are the whole draw. you discover some new places, you get to check out some new stuffs from shops you’ve been to before, and if you do it with a friend?
