little break~

just a short one!

but i need some time to be away from SL and blogging. i’ve kind of.. surrounded myself && my free time with it and i’ve gotten a little bored. so a good week’s break from everything will cause me to miss it and subsequently, i’ll be more excited to get back to it once i return.

so see ya’ll in a week! *waves* when i get back, i’ll be working on my 200th post. weeeeeeeeee!

rain boots

…with no rain? x3

but they were too cute not to wear~

it’s raining somewhere (probably), okay!? so i am ..empathizing with those being pelted by rain with my adorable puddle boots from miel. they were out for this past FLF && i am *just now* getting to play around with them. and i am in looooooooove~ i bought both the brights && the natural pack, because for 50L how can you even *begin* to resist, and am wearing both in the picture above. i love the vibrant colors in the bright boots, but on the other hand.. i like the neutral, goes-with-anything palette the natural boots have. and on either pair… the trim, sole && body of the boot are all color-change separately. super yay for customization! \o/

i’m also wearing *two* of the new lamb dresses from candydoll. now granted, i’m wearing them kiii~iinda as long tees over jeans (and these new jeans from tres blah are sooo worth checkin’ out, too!), just because i wanted to dress these down a li’l && be more casual with them, but they *totally* make sexy mini-dresses on their own. just shows you how versatile her clothing can be~ ;p

i am loving all the clothing (and skin!) releases rebeca dembo has been offering lately and these dresses are no exception. as always, they come in a rainbow of colors — ranging from dark neutrals to bright pops of color. and the pulled-open front, with the unbuttoned back (that you’ll just have to see on your own if you grab one! or two..) and the lace trim on the hem all make for a combo of sweet && sexy that i really, really like. layer them with a jacket or vest && jeans like i have, or wear the dress on it’s own with some killer high heels.. either way, you cannot go wrong. 😉

crosary

short, to the point post up ahead! \o/

i am such a *glutton* when it comes to jewelry from haus of darcy — i own a lot already, but aydan darcy just keeps releasing more && more awesome accessories.

her piercings are by far my favorites.. her necklaces && bracelets are the ones i most often search for in my inventory… so when i see new things, i get all glittery eyed && super excited.

all of my jewelry today — necklace, piercings && bracelet — are from hod.. but the bracelet i’m wearing is *new* and discounted! today is the *last day* to snag it for only 50L(!!) and is seriously worth it for the quality you’re getting.

there are four different versions (below i’m showing off only two, you’ll have to go scoop ’em to see the rest!) and it’s unisex too! it’s made to match the crosary necklaces, so if you have those.. you definitely *need* these bracelets.

i know i gush often about hod’s jewelry, and feature it a lot here on my blog, but it’s honestly because i wear it *so much* in world && adore the textures… and the fact that aydan makes unique pieces that i can’t find anywhere else. if nothing else, it’s worth checking out for the discount alone, riiiiight? goooooo grab them!

dress like an adult

so, most of the looks i feature here on my blog would probably be considered.. casual. i tend to stray from the *everyday* kinda look only every once in a while, and i do like to add fantasy elements in as well (or just go all out and be a freak of nature ahaha), but it’s rare that i actually.. dress up. y’know?

9.23.2011
click to see it larger @ flickr!

i figured it was time to change that. ;3

dressing like an “adult” is something that is kinda hard for me — despite the fact that i am, in fact, an adult. i guess i just prefer the jeans && t-shirt kinda look more than i do some tweed pants and a blouse?

however!

these pants i’m wearing from ingenue that are out for FLF (and are totally worth grabbing if you haven’t already!) just ..inspired me, i guess, to dress in a more *business* casual look than normal. i love these for their high waist && the zipper detail on the back (which i unfortunately forgot to photograph, ’tis my bad), and the prim cuffs are flared in a way a lot of dress pants i own irl are. the color && fabric are perfect for fall, too, which is a definite plus. and the price makes these an insta-buy for me!

there’s a purple-y shade of these pants as well out for 50L, but i liked the gray. gray is one of my go-to colors in world, it’s neutral but it’s not black && since i own *so much* black already.. gray is usually the color i go for now.

but i could not help myself when it came to this cropped sweater in, yes, black (as soon as i finish saying i own too much black, lolol) from the secret store. it was out for lazy sunday this past weekend && if you grabbed it, you should rejoice. it’s adorable! it’s just short enough to meet the top of these pants && i really like the way it looks layered over a tank (one of my favorite tanks for layering at that, from fri.day). works for a more dressy look, but would srsly look just as nice with some jeans or a skirt. the prim attachments make it really pop for me, too — the slightly puffy sleeves, the bottom prim that makes it billow in a *flattering* way, and there are buttons on the chest too that i decided not to wear. very nicely made and versatile.. you can never own too many cute sweaters for fall. 😉

in fact, that’s definitely something i need to go shopping for. sweaters. tank tops and tees, i own in every color of the rainbow. but long sleeves && heavier fabrics are slim to none in my inventory. so can you guess what i’ll be doing over the weekend? bwahahah~

letters from the sky

it totally has nothing to do with my post, but this song is amazing && i love it. jam with me, kay! \o/

*sings loud and off-key* one of these days, letters are gonna falllllll, telling us all… to go freeee~

..ahem.

9.19.2011

it’s rare for me to dress around a hairstyle, but sometimes.. it’s the inspiration for everything. the one i’m wearing here from exile is what i dressed around, which is amusing in and of itself. i mean, you can just imagine me, right… standing alone in my changing-room-skybox… naked save for the hair, trying on clothes? trying to figure out something that matched the messy, sexy, modern look this hair has? oh what a mental image that must be~ 😉

i love what i came up with though! not to toot my own horn or anything. my top, from gawk, is suuuuuuper sexy.. and makes me look more boobielicious than i actually am! 8D the almost corset-like color blocking, with the cute li’l polka dots… && the fact that the string attachment on the chest works *so well* with how the fabric is pulled ever so slightly at the chest makes for a unique top indeed. cap-sleeved tees are not unknown to my inventory, but this one was different enough for me to make an exception for. plus i love this teal color, i don’t own enough of it!

9.19.2011

the boots i’m wearing today are from sakide and seriously. seriously. these boots are love. the crocodile leather-like texture on the foot of the boot is subtle && i like it that way. and the legwarmers… oh i am *such* a sucker for legwarmers. they just look fall && winter to me, especially when worn over top of a pair of boots, so these in black are delicious.

but in red, or a nice crisp white too (as they do, in fact, come in those colors) would work just as nicely! ;D

and to make them even more autumn-like? there are leaves in the legwarmers that you can turn off, as i have here, or leave on for an extra fall-y look. would look adorable with a cardigan in a nice warm pumpkin color and some dark leggings and maybe a skirt… teehee.

corset && katana

you may recall, if you read my blog often, a post i did with bff vivi not too long ago. i was, back then, wearing an outfit from violent seduction that was so cleverly made && unique that i *totally* fell in love with it.

but iki akiri revamped && remixed that outfit… and made it even better in mesh and omgosh. it’s fucking amazing.

9.18.2011

the la morte elf outfit is similar, but definitely not the same. and i’m not wearing the full outfit (you’ll just have to pop by violent seduction to see the entire ensemble in all of its glory!) because i like to mix && match, but i will say this: the outfit, as a whole, is gorgeous. and i love the mesh version even better than the original la morte imp because of the corset && because of how it moves. ❤❤

the set includes the mesh skirt, the mesh corset, the panties, the collar, the gloves && wrapped stockings… and also a bolero, wraps for the chest && pasties that i did not wear. all together it is smoking hot, but each piece individually looks just as nice on its own worked into different ensembles. i mean, just the corset alone with some fishnets && some sexy lingerie… a pair of super high heels.. unnfff.

9.18.2011

the fact that it’s mesh makes it *that* much more awesome. the first pose in the pic above, bent back like that? if the corset were made of prims, there is no. way. that pose would have ever worked for this outfit.

aaaaaaand speaking of poses! the katana i’m wielding && the matching poses are *new* from magnifique and i knew instantly that i would loooooooove them~ is it weird that i have a ..*thing* for weapons in sl? i own a ton of them, and i especially like shiny guns && swords, but finding poses that work well with them can sometimes be a challenge (especially if you’re like me && you hoard fashion-y poses instead of action-y ones). this set of poses is reeeally well done && would totally work with a different sword with a bit of adjusting, but comes with the katana i’m wearing.. already positioned for you for each pose! \o/

really dynamic poses mixed with mesh clothing = sooooo awesome. it really opens up possibilities we didn’t have before in sl. the fact that mesh still breaks but is much harder to do so than with prims, and that i can simply walk around in this skirt && not have to worry about my legs poking out oddly makes me a *total* && *complete* mesh convert. it really is worth upgrading viewers to give it a try, ’cause mesh from here on out can only get better.

9.15.2011

i know you can’t see it all that well in the pics above, but i’ll show it off much better down below!

i felt like bein’ all *cute* today. sometimes, i’d rather be dark && mysterious… while other days, i enjoy the cutesy. and today is just one of those i am so adorable, just lookit my li’l face kinda days! and the new hair from wasabi pills that i’m wearing *totally* helps in the sweet && cute department — especially with that massive bow! it’s color-change, but the ribbon && knot are separate so you don’t have to have a solid-colored bow. the cut is super cute too, i like the whole… V fringe thing. makes it a bit more unique than just a simple short haircut. :3

the legwarmers && faun legs i’m wearing are from epic and were out for grenade free wednesday yesterday. i’m not 100% sure, but if you visit the epic stall @ the jersey shore.. these legs *might* still be out for a steep discount. it’s definitely worth checkin’ out cause omgaaaaah, how cute are they!? big oversized legwarmers, covered in pockets && buttons (which come in black as well as the brown i’m wearing, as well as black hooves too!), with nice thermal-y socks included… i pretty much love *everything* that jade winthorpe makes, but her faun bits are by far my favorite on the grid right now.

9.15.2011

and my lollipop backpack… it’s from epic, too. it was also out for grenade free wednesday @ the jersey shore location a couple weeks ago. it’s an exclusive color so i don’t think this specific one is available at the mainstore. ;( if you like epic’s stuffs, paying attention to the grenade free weds releases is really worth it! discounts and exclusive colors and previews of new goodies! but! there are other colors to pick from for the backpacks, don’t worry, both in the lollipop version i’m wearing and in a cute li’l mushroom version too. both are equally adorbs && include the falling particles too. which, btw, i know how obnoxious particles can be on clothing && accessories… but these backpacks? it’s *totally* not. it only emits a few at a time and they disappear quickly. you won’t be filling up your entire screen with stars, believe me. x3

it’s just enough to leave a li’l trail when you walk. which makes this lollipop backpack so cute that i want to squish it’s happy one-tooth’d face off~ ❤❤

autumn

i’ve been *super* distracted these last few days, mostly thanks to the newest minecraft update. /me looks sheepish. and because of it, my blogging time took a li’l hit.

but it’s okay!! i promise. because today i’ve got some awesome stuffs to show off. perhaps i can say the three day wait was worth it? x3

designers are coming out with some lovely new fall-inspired clothing pieces, sweaters && warmer, richer colors have been all over some of my favorite stores’ new releases. and while i will indeed miss the summer, this one was a reeeeally good one, i think… now… i am ready for fall. maybe. halloween makes me excited, at least! and i’ll wear short skirts for as long as i can, though! 😉

the sweater i am wearing from willow was out for FLF this past week && for 50L, it came in a pack of several colors (and believe me, i was srsly tempted by the harry potter-inspired set too!). the grey sweater in the set was probably my favorite out of the bunch, but this red just.. screamed autumn to me. i love how it’s off the shoulder, so you can still see a peek of my tattoo, and the chest prim blends very nice to make it look a li’l oversized… and a whole lot of comfortable.

my skin is *new* too, from candydoll and, as always, the beautiful rebeca dembo spoils you with options…

from left to right :: natural, purple, pink, nude, blue, green

not only do you get a choice of four skintones (of which i’ll show you in a moment!), but you *also* get the option to mix && match eye shadows and lipsticks with lip color tattoos, each make up has different cleavage/cup size options aaaaaaaand there’s a hair base included as an option as well.

the jessie skin has a sweet face with a dusting of freckles across the nose, that’s much more noticeable in darker skin tones than the pale i’m showing off (and i looooove freckles on skins, the tanned skin tone has the cutest freckles imo!). bright makeups, which are always nicely done on candydoll skins. and the fact that you can mix, say… your favorite eye shadow with your favorite lipstick color (as i’ve done below) makes it really versatile. you can match or purposely mismatch your makeup to your outfits. \o/ makeup tattoos make me giddy, i *adore* being able to customize skins the way i want them to look.

i took pics in the natural eye makeup, with the red lipstick from the blue makeup set, to show off the other skin tones. each one is so nicely done && i really like how the darkest tone has a more muted lip color with the lip tattoo, too. very pretty, very soft… rebeca did a *fabulous* job with these new skins! ❤❤

i rarely, if ever, wear handbags in world. i rarely wear them in looks i blog. and it’s not because i don’t particularly like them (i mean, seriously, i have a purse addiction irl — i own so many dooney bags alone to have an entire wardrobe of them), but i can never really find any that work quite right. but this purse @ collabor88 from the sea hole has a built in animation to keep your arm straight. which makes it *awesome* to actually wear with your AO running! it also comes in a ton of equally vibrant, beautiful colors (including hot pink!), but i was drawn to this purple. it’s a gorgeous shade, and the details are suberb. looooveee eeeettt.

this jumper is out @ collabor88 from boom && is a nice mixture of cute and sexy. the shorts are super short, but they look *adorable* with the long-sleeved, baseball tee top. and just like the purse (and the sweatshirt && eye makeup too!) in the first picture, this set comes in a ton of bright colors. who says you already have to start wearing drab, dull && boring colors just because fall is in there air? 😉 thankfully in second life you don’t have to worry about freezing your ass off if you decide to wear some teeny shorts, no matter how chilly it is outside!

and would ya lookit that.. i’m dressed *vaguely* like him. what a coinky-dink! 😉

my outfit, appropriately named jareth is from luni && yeah, it’s sex on a stick. i *love* tailored jackets for the ladies and the flared tail and high collar on the jacket totally remind me of the lovely goblin king. all i need is a ruffly-collared shirt underneath and i’d be good to go~

the color i’m wearing is available to purchase, buu~uuut. if you’re in the mood to hunt, there is a purple version out for the twisted hunt. which means it’s *freee*! \o/ i’ve not yet tackled the twisted hunt, but if it’s anything like the last time i participated.. you’ll probably be searching for quite a while, ahaha. but it’s worth it, especially if your favorite color is purple. ;D

and speaking of purple!

there’s a sale goin’ on @ luni too, on everything purple! hunt && snag some discounted goodies while you’re there~ win-win!

the incredibly pretty skin i’m wearing, even though i’ve makeup’d all over the gorgeous face, is from amd — a brand i’ve not yet explored when it comes to skins. and honestly? i have *no idea* why, this face is beautiful && i adore it. which could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on whose perspective you look at it from. from my own POV? it’s *awesome* ’cause i love skins && adding a new one to my massive collection is always a good thing. but for my wallet? not so exciting, ’cause now i want moar. ;p

and i know these boots have been all over everything, but oh man. the mesh boots from slink i’m wearing are so hot i could literally *lick them*. and having them in mesh has srsly spoiled me — wearing them around all day today has really made me realize how clunky prim boots can be. especially when they go thigh-high. but the mesh ones move beautifully with my legs && feet, and the heels are so high and spiked… and the textures are amazing and… and and… just… yes. glorious boots. ❤
