lucky girl

skulls, fishnets, amazing new leather boots && a pistol strapped to my thigh..

08.19.2012

i’m *fairly* certain that qualifies me for badass status, but i suppose i could be wrong. ;P

in my seemingly never-ending quest to catch up on all the goodies i’ve missed out on in these last few months, i’ve been reminded again && again just why i seem to be so out of the loop. it’s because all my favorite stores, and arguably some of the most well-established brands in sl, consistently and frequently release awesome shit. and i was greeted yesterday by a notice from maitreya that i seriously flipped out over.

the mesh boots i’m wearing in this look today are *divine*. they are new from maitreya and… i must say: even if all their latest mesh releases haven’t been my taste (can’t please everyone with everything, right?), i cannot deny how gorgeous && how high-quality said releases have been. like, even if i personally wouldn’t wear something, i can’t say it’s because it’s not beautiful.. it’s just not my style. their releases have been better and better and better each time…. and these boots, they are no exception. i grabbed ’em in this sand color because i instantly fell in love with the demo pair i tried on, but the rest of the color choices are just as awesome. …and i may be back for these in black because i like them so much. they are scrunchy, they are wonderfully textured, and they are season-appropriate for just about any time of year. love them.

08.19.2012

other mesh goodies i snagged for this look include the lucky girl tank top from suicidal unborn && a pair of high-waisted denim shorts from teefy that are currently out @ fameshed. a few accessories from hod, amorous, sakide, onyx wear and loulou&co round out the look, while this super sexy wavy hair from lamb adds back in a bit of girlishness. i topped it off with some really juicy lip gloss from pink acid && by far, my favorite skin ever from pink fuel and indeed, i think i accomplished the whole badass look rather well.

badass with some amazing new boots. i cannot wait for fall to hit so i can wear these with sweaters and leggings. or winter, where they’ll still work with jeans and a heavy jacket. …is it wrong that i am excited for the change of season simply because i look forward to the sorts of looks i can put together? heh, probably!

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~ ❤❤

#167

yes, can’t think of a title, so it gets a number. can you believe there are 167 posts of my boobs ramblings on this blog?! i sure can’t.

aaaaaaaaaaaanyhoozles~

when i find a song i like, i listen to it.. over and over and over and over. and as soon as i discovered a remix of one of my favorite songs, it’s pretty much been on *constant* repeat in spotify. the song, while i loves it, in reality has very little to do with my look for today.. but watch, i’ll stretch && make it tie in. ;3

you see those earrings? kiinda hard not to, they are massive. and animated. and sparkly. and omgah i love them *so much*. big vinyls on my ears, what is not to love? they are by entropy designs && i gladly traded in my elfy ears for these instead. i don’t own much vinyl in my first life, i guess i’m not hipster enough for that (right, kystria? ehe~), but these make me *want* to spin records. and and and, albums right? remix!? not so much of a stretch, yes?!!

*ahem*

8.03.2011

my top && vest are courtesy of grixdale.. and in case you haven’t heard, it’s *closing* at the end of the month. biiiig sad face. 😦 there is a sale going on, where everything is marked way down (including skins. SKINS. teagan && ren are def worth picking up while you can!), but i couldn’t even take advantage of the sale happily. i mean, i *did* take advantage of the sale, but i was one big frownie while doing so. i really like grixdale, the clothes && skins are so pretty and girly and wonderful, and will be very sad to see it close.

at least i have a ton of new clothing to roll around in after it’s gone. ;.;

and my shoooooooooooes. zebra print shoes with *hot pink* soles. it was like love at first sight. ❤❤ these pumps are from nardcotix and the shoe cap is color-change. naturally, i chose pink.. y’know.. for something to break up all the black && gray, not ’cause i like pink or anything ;), but the other colors are just as vibrant and just as awesome. i always squee when nardcotix has new releases, because they are *consistently* amazing, but these zebra shoes had vixxie will love these before she even puts them on written all over ’em.

plus, you can just wear *boring* shoes when you’re channeling some sort of .. rockstar-in-a-parking-lot. amirite?! rockstar with vinyls in her ears and half her head shaved. \m/ O_O \m/

grunge soul

/me coughs
if you haven’t added me yet on plurk, why the hell not!?!?!?

..ahem.

there’s a second installment of the grunge soul project up && running… and there are lots of goodies to be had.

bff vivi && i visited yesterday and all the discounted stuffs was a li’l overwhelming. skins, shapes, hair.. tattoos, piercings, shoes.. clothes… all so awesome, all my style, and all delightfully inexpensive. \o/ i was in shopping heaven~

7.11.2011
click to see it larger @ flickr!

quite a good chunk of my outfit is from the gsp.. the jeans (which i am in *love* with, srsly) are by bazinga; the sheer top && the tank underneath are from acid & mala; my eyes are by insufferable dastard, which is slowly becoming my new favorite when it comes to gorgeous eyes; and the piercings, which there will be a better picture of below, are by annaa.

there’s guy stuff @ the gsp too, which is nice to see. the guys don’t get enough love when it comes to events. and the fact that there’s *so* many awesome designers in one place, all offering stuffs on the alternative side of the fashion spectrum, makes it that much better.

and, okay, this is totally unrelated to my outfit, but. can i just say how much i am loving the new firestorm viewer?! since i got my new pc, i’ve been able to run shadows.. but. on kirsten’s, i crashed constantly while trying to take snapshots. on the official ll viewer, getting shadows to actually show up took some.. finesse. and getting them to show up in pictures was even harder. -_-; more often than not, the pics would glitch and shadows would disappear. or, even worse, the entire snapshot would turn black. DX

but on firestorm, i click one button && shadows show up beautifully — in world and in photographs. i don’t lag with shadows on and my graphics cranked. and the fact that i can copy the names of all the items i’m wearing with *one click* — this viewer is like a blogger’s dream. i still have to grab slurls but i can totally do that. i loooooooove this viewer. it makes my life so much easier! \o/

oh, and back to my outfit.. *ehe*.. i’m wearing some freebies today, too. my tattoo is a hunt prize from para designs && ya’ll have to know how by now how excited i get over freebies @ para designs. and just as a head’s up — there’s a freebie cherry tattoo out for a limited time! go snag it && the hunt prize while you’re there!

the nails i’m wearing are the *new* group gift from candy nail && when i got the notice saying there was a new gift and new releases, my heart skipped a beat. candy nail is one of my favies for prim nails. and these are so tropical and so cute and so perfect for summer.

aaaaaaand the glasses, they are a freebie from berries inc. i have been on a glasses kick lately, i need more eye wear in my second life. these have a li’l bow on the side and come in a version you can modify ’til you get them *exactly* the way you want them to fit. love these — they have been glued to my face for the past two days. 8D

pussycat

/me puuuurrs

for as obsessed bff vivi && i are with kittycats, i thought it only appropriate to regress for a li’l while.. to my neko roots.

6.11.2011

maybe i’m, uh. a manx-y neko? xP no tail today, but i am sporting ears && some *amazing* kitty-paw boots!

said boots are from epic and that store, srsly, is appropriately named. i am slowly accumulating one of everything there. and these boots, they are ridiculous! they’re all mecha’d && full of complex detail — the inset tv screens even come complete with animated textures. even though i tinted ’em gray, the lights (and yeah, they glow too!) are color change and i just. there are no words. i love these boots in all kinds of ways.

so i went on a hunt for some cute kitten ears && found these at hocico. can i just say how adooooooo~oooorable they are!? they’re pierced with stars and they *wiggle* like a real cat’s would. and instead of being on top of my head, they’re right over where my actual ears would be (my poor normal ears get *so* neglected, eheh~). even if i’m not runnin’ around the grid all neko-fied, i can totally see myself wearing these just ’cause i like to be cute sometimes. :3

6.11.2011

my amazing piercings && necklace are from twee. the lovely verinne asnar has always made nice jewelry — i’ve blogged her awesome piercings many times over. but with every set i end up with, i love her stuffs more && more. and the usb cable necklace? it’s a hunt prize, which means *freeeeeebie*! i actually dropped in to twee for the hunt prize and ended up coming out with some piercings… and some plans to go back for a pair of her super cute perso ears. ;D

the upper body ink, my sheer tank, jeans, bracelets && all the makeup layers i’m wearing were freebies too. it is *astounding* how generous designers can be in SL. ❤ whether they are hunt prizes, group freebies, subscribo gifts, dollarbies.. i am always happily surprised by the quality of freebies && cheapies set out for us. it makes me feel all spoiled and whatnot and that is always a good thing when it comes to free stuff!

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.

6.05.2011

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?

livin the life i was born to live

as i’m blogging, i am also watching this movie && it is probably in my top ten favorites, evar~ /me jams && ogles j.aniston

anyway~ the look i’ve got for today is chalk full of freebie && cheapie goodness, since the last two haven’t really included much. and that’s what i do, i scope out cute freebs ’cause i’m cheap like that. …teehee. :3

and, y’know, just as a head’s up. post comin’ this weekend will be full of so many freebies, it’ll make your head spin. no lie!

6.04.2011

way back when i was a wee newb, i liked SL for the whole nifty 3D virtual world aspect. dressing my avatar was fun, but wasn’t what i focused on. i liked exploring, i liked chatting, i liked hopping from sim to sim && back again. i always wore freebie skins, freebie clothes, freebie hair… just ’cause it was there (&& ’cause i was still cheap even back then, go figure). but as i’ve said here in the past, the first avatar that really felt like me was neko. and then i slowly started to.. actually care about what my avatar looked like.

belleza was one of the first skin brands where it really clicked with me. the alyson skin, and then the elle line… it was like kismet. i wore those skins into the *ground*, i loved ’em hard. so when i made my triumphant return to SL earlier this week, belleza was a top priority to check for new skin deliciousness.

…and lemme just say, i was *floored* by the group gifts. floored! the skin i’m wearing here is erika && it reminds me a lot of elle. it’s probably why i love it so much. the lips are gorgeous, the skintone is perfect (i’m wearing sunkissed but the gift includes a lovely range in skintones!), and the makeup.. flawless as usual. and the fact that the tone of erika i’m wearing has blonde brows, it just. oh man. not gonna lie, i peed a li’l bit when i tried this skin on.

6.04.2011

as for other freebies && cheapies, the necklace i’m wearing from burroughs is a new free gift. i’m always amazed by the quality from burroughs jewelry and this necklace is no exception. it’s color change and adorable and absolutely lovely~

plus! there’s a 99L sale going on right now at burroughs. if the freebie necklace doesn’t interest you, inexpensive but super high quality jewelry should. 😉

my tattoo is from my beloved para designs && is a hunt prize. i can never resist a good tattoo, but a *free* tattoo that only costs a bit of huntin’ time is an insta-win for me. there’s quite a few hunts going on at para designs (hinthint: zombie popcorn prize is nice too! but that’s for another post) && an entire table worth of freebies by the entrance, it’s totally worth a TP in to have a look around if you love ink the way i do.

the socks and eyeballs i’m wearing are past && present 50L fridays items, too from kyoot and plastik. and my tee, it cost a whopping 2L at the surf couture outlet. it’s really all about finding the right things to spend your lindens on, and finding some hidden good deals (see what i did there? hidden? hunt prizes? no? …kay) for the rest, and working it all together. being frugal can still have you lookin’ fierce, if you know where to go~ amirite?!

argyle && tube socks

yeah, it’s *definitely* clear that fall is here to stay. i’ve had the gloomiest, chilliest, windiest last few days in my first life and while i’m sad to see summer go (and sad to put all my cute bikinis away :().. i suppose the best thing would be to embrace the season-change with open arms!

and bare legs. ;3

9.17.2010

during the fall && winter months, i live for layers. thermals, long-sleeved tees, sweaters, hoodies… i’d rather wear an undershirt, top and jacket than a huge, bulky sweatshirt. if i get *too* warm, i can just shrug off the outer layers. with one sweatshirt on… i mean, i suppose i could walk around in my bra but i doubt anyone would wanna see that!

so i layered a little bit with today’s look, combining a long-sleeved top from ha! with a short-sleeved tee from arai. the gray tee, with it’s amusing car design, is actually a freebie in the store && i was really surprised. it’s nicely made and includes awesome prim work, the hem is big and poofy and looks about 10 sizes too large for me. but i still like it! \o/

but since my upper half was so fully-covered, i opted for some cute && tailored shorts i picked up from c’est moi instead of longer pants. i really like these.. from the semi-shiny fabric texture to the folded cuffs && pinned up hem on either side. details can make or break an article of clothing and these shorts have juuuust enough detail to not be overdone, but to really add to the garment. plus, they’d look *super* adorable with some leggings and boots on… /me taps her chin.

9.17.2010

when it comes to skins, there are definitely things i like. i definitely like cleavage options *on* the skin, bright makeup is always a plus, blonde brows…. are a must, a little bit of a tan doesn’t hurt && i tend to gravitate towards skins that also give options for freckles. i’m not sure why, but i love the way a freckled face looks. finding skins that have all of that? sometimes, it’s kinda rough! especially when it comes to brows… blonde brows seem hard to come by. sad face.

BUT! with the tattoo layer, i can add freckles (as well as lashes, eye makeup, lipstick, moles, etc etc) onto my favorite un-freckled skins and this makes me *so* happy. when i saw this lovely post with extra freckles…. yeah, it totally made me giddy. they are *beyond* adorable and are from l.fauna. the freckles aren’t on just the face either, but aaaaaaalll over the body. amazing~

and! to go with the layered theme, these argyle armwarmers + nails + rings (!!!) from virtual insanity kiiiiiinda made me giddy as well. purple and red looks so awesome together and the flower ring on v/i’s nails is something i am totally growing to love. and the best part? i can wear prim nails *and* arm socks at the same time. they are all one attachment for the hand, then the extra glove part on the forearm. very innovative && very appreciated. i hate having to choose between gloves and my nails!

i guess the good thing about embracing the autumn, as i’ve mentioned before… is halloween. i mean, i was already out shopping for a halloween costume for my avatar (at the end of august, ahem) && i’ve been eying fun, haunted, spooky places to take my friends to. fall may mean colder weather, though it’s a welcome change this year after a blazing hot summer, but it *also* means haunted houses… scary movies… and candy!!! \o/ woo!

it seems like this week is international week of sales, with perhaps a subtitle of that also make vixxie go into linden-debt. but believe me, it is *more* than okay. when i can get loot at ridiculously low prices to make me look this good? totally not a problem. 😉

so first, the sale at maitreya. 50% off = shopgasm to my ears. the jacket, belt && sexy shoes with tights i’ve got on are all from maitreya. they are but a small portion of the goodies i snagged while there, but these three things were probably my favorites. gorgeous red heels, a low slung leather belt && meticulously tailored jacket.. there’s not much better than maitreya’s prim and texture work. looooooove them~

my shorts are from identity which sadly is closing. ;( but the entire store is marked down (i didn’t see anything over 50L!) && i picked up these high-waist shorts that are *delicious*. really, it’s no shocker.. since i’ve mentioned it about a billion times.. that anything high-waisted is an insta-win with me. these shorts are no exception.

the tank i’m wearing underneath the maitreya jacket is part of, kinda, the sale at tyranny. true enough, there’s a sale going on at both locations, but! there are also hidden freebies scattered across the normal vendors. i picked up a couple pairs of shoes, a dress, some denim capris && this tank all for freeeee~ free! sale + freebies is one of my favorite combos.

and, as if you haven’t heard.. there’s a sale going on at a little store called truth. all the fabulous hairstyles there are for sale at halfprice, making a pack of beautiful light blondes in the style i’m wearing (called seraphina) a big whopping *125L*. amazing deal and so worth the intense lag. remember to de-prim && de-script yourself before you try to go! running around trying on truth demos in a bikini is what i did. 😉

now, for the second half of my title… skins. the talented rebeca dembo of candydoll has been on a roll lately. cute, flirty tops *and* a new skin release?

a skin with stunning makeup choices?

i think i’ve died and gone to heaven~

makeups from left to right ::
cream, nude eye, killa, lila, pinkysh && peach

bianca comes in 4 skintones (the tone i’m wearing is tan) && six beautiful makeups. the eyes are just so very pretty && no one does pouty, glossy lips the way candydoll does. i love these faces (and *hello* but the killa makeup? my absolute favorite) and while i didn’t snapshot it, the body is just as lovely. you’ll have to grab a demo and see for yourself!

a sexy new face && covered in sale goodies…. i don’t think there’s much else i love more. unless, of course, we’re talkin’ food. then the only thing that could make my day better is *maybe* some chocolate. anyone wanna share some with me? :3

can’t really explain the title other than.. it’s what one of my tattoos today makes me think. ;p

can you tell which tattoo i’m talking about?

8.08.2010

yeah, i’ve got skeleton hands getting pretty fresh with my bewbies, but that’s okay with me. sometimes a little groping is a totally welcome gesture, especially when it comes in tattoo form. haha. and the reason i’m wearing said tattoo, that came from virtual insanity is two fold.

reason part one: my top is actually a dress i picked up from t.whore and it leaves the nips delightfully exposed. and what skin isn’t exposed by the dress is covered only slightly by the sheer, wet-looking fabric. and i wanted something to.. y’know… leave me *somewhat* modest, and the skull hands are not your everyday pasties.

reason part two: i wanted to draw attention to my chest. not ’cause i have a lovely one (though, yeah, i do, but that’s not the point), but because the necklace i have on is amaaaaaaaaazing. and the skeletor hands definitely draw attention to one’s chest, hm?

my look today is *all* about the accessories. and said amazing necklace, and piercings too, are courtesy of hod. last friday i blogged the 50L offering from hod in the form of the fallen necklace. and today, the beautiful aydan darcy released version two of both the necklace && the piercings.

the texture and detail work on both pieces are phenomenal. i knew there was a good reason why hod is one of my favorites for body jewelry. 😉 the piercings (shown here in the razor texture) are so damn sexy, i can’t even stand it. the little cross on the lip && the triple nose rings, oh.. love it so hard. ❤

my rings today as well are a bit of a tease for a new release from iced. both of my rings were made specifically for the fashion house and that doesn’t open until the 10th. but i *had* to show these off. the jewels are texture change && it was impossible to show it in a photograph but if you pick these up and zoom in reeeeeeeeeally close.. the texture actually animates and sparkles. gorgeous! and adds so much depth to the already beautiful pieces.

plus, i’ve got on new horns \o/ from bubble that i saw && immediately fell in love with. even if your eyes (probably) are drawn right to the titties, to me… this look is absolutely all about the fantastic accessories. <33
