bundled up

i am in *love* with the newest round of collabor88 goodies…

11.09.2012

…not only is the color palette gorgeous (shades of deep orange, golden yellow && cool teal-blue), but just about everything i spied there was callin’ my name~

collabor88 is one of those events that i look most forward to every single month. the mixture of home furnishings (which *really* helps, considering i’ve a brand new home to finish decorating!), fabulous fashion, accessories and even poses is all kinds of awesome. but this round, i found *so* many things i honestly flipped out for that i couldn’t even fit everything into one look. the collections just keep getting better && better and this round was definitely no exception.

the dress i’m wearing here is *so* sexy. it’s from hucci and i absolutely love it. the turtleneck collar, the length of the skirt, the lovely suede texturing…. and the way it moves… it is just flaw free. the fit on this dress is fantastic and i adore this blue-gray color, but i also snagged it in black because it was just too *good* to pass up.

11.09.2012

glam affair also has a few new things at collabor88 this round, including both the boots(!) && the skin i’m wearing today. the seul ankle boots come in a range of really pretty jewel tone colors that almost look metallic, but my favorite was this pretty golden bronze color. it’s neutral enough to work with just about anything i could possibly want to wear ’em with, but still *unique* enough to really add a pop of color into an outfit. they are shiny and high-heeled and impeccably textured. love~

and the skin…. well, it *is* that time of year after all. being a little under the weather is not uncommon in the colder months of fall && winter, but at least you can still look adorable with your snuffly nose. this set of skins, in glam affair’s roza and ginny faces, can either look like you’ve got a bit of a cold…. or like your face is flushed from being out in some chilly wind. such a cute idea that translates really, really well if you take lots of pictures in-world like i do. having that extra flush on the cheeks and nose, when combined with a “cooler” windlight setting && maybe a scarf (like the one i’m wearing here, which is a *freebie* from mr. poet!) totally adds another level of realism to your snapshots!

had enough halloween? not me!

10.19.2012

to be fair, i’d wander around the grid like this even when it’s not halloween… but these “costume” kind of looks are so fun for me to put together && i could not resist doing something a li’l spacey!

this look here involves a lot of good stuff, so i’ve got lots to talk about!

10.19.2012

first, the dress… it screamed *sci fi* to me. it’s new from glam affair && is out @ fameshed. i love the super structured shoulder pieces on this dress, it definitely looks to me like some sort of cybernetic uniform and it inspired my entire look for today~

next, the booooots(!). these are found @ the cinema event, by decoy. that entire event is just amazing — from the build, to the theme, to all the goodies offered there — and these boots in, appropriately enough, the sci fi section were one of my favorite grabs. i love the shape of them and the fit.. and those colored stripes towards the foot are color change in either solid or glittery choices!

and the skin… which really gives my avatar an alien sort of vibe. it’s *new* from red mint and while, technically, the one i’m wearing here is meant to be drow.. i think it really works well for a sci fi, fantasy kind of look. this silvery blue is so pretty && it comes with a ton of options for cleavage, freckles, and different lips. plus! if i weren’t wearing these awesome arm prosthetics from grollwerk, the skin even comes with pre-tinted glove layers to cover the base fingertips for wearing prim nails. *much* appreciated, because i do like my prim nails.

don’t worry — i’ll get back to blogging more “normal” things eventually. but doing halloween looks are just too much fun~ :3

fall to pieces

every time i’m
fallin’ down
all alone i fall
to pieces

i’ve been working on some stuff in world lately, which has caused me to go on a music spreeeeeeee. and this has been on repeat for me for quite a while now. i love this song.. and more importantly, i love scott weiland. :3 i have ever since i first heard stone temple pilots way back when.

not that the music has much to do with my look-of-the-day post, but. there ya go. xD listen to the song, okay!

09.18.2012

as for my look, it’s pretty much a mish-mash of things i’ve been wanting to wear — mostly, this super sexy hooded dress from cynful && these stocking-and-legwarmer combo heels from luck inc that are all kinds of awesome. they are sexy me heels, indeed~

09.18.2012

i really love this hairstyle, too. dela for hair is still relatively new-to-me, but after a few trips there (and a few recs from friends raving about this brand), i’ve given it a shot a couple of times. and i have to say, this loosely braided pigtail style is probably my favorite of the store’s offerings.. it is completely my style. it’s really cute && nicely textured.. and their pack of platinum blondes is lovely.

now if you’ll excuse me, i think i’ll cut my usual rambling short… and go back to jammin’ out to my music library. ;p

unmentionables

there’s not a whole lot i can say here, other than…

09.11.2012

allarik && me are in our underpants. i’m in my unmentionables to show off new awesome stuffs, but he’s just eye candy (you’re welcome). and i suppose, this time, the snapshot speaks louder than my words ever could, hm? ;p

right! so i’ve been needing an excuse to get in touch with my sexy side and the latest mesh releases from onyx wear && red mint helped me do just that. lingerie is the thing i probably own the least of in my virtual closet, but pretty underthings like this make me *totally* happy to change that.

i honestly thought that bras ‘n’ panties were probably the one thing i would not like (or need) in mesh — clothing layers seemed to do the job fairly well. but that was *before* i tried them and these sets from onyx wear are so sexy it hurts. little details, like lace trims and teeny bows, when combined with how well they fit and how *realistic* it looks on… they are just delicious and i’m afraid the few pieces of clothing layer lingerie i do own won’t be getting much use anymore.

09.11.2012

there are lots of patterns to choose from (i think my personal fave out of the bunch is the candy rainbow set in the upper left pic, so cute!) and are def worth checking out. i love that the bra and panties are separate mesh pieces, which made fitting a breeze for me since i could mix-and-match sizes. plus *nothing* is sexier than a bra you can cam all around. …i’m just sayin’.

and of course, the corset i’m wearing… also new && also mesh, from red mint. i am a *sucker* for corsets, i absolutely love them. and with mesh, my love for them has only grown leaps and bounds. the one i’m wearing here comes with the collar attached as well as a version without the collar included… and again, lots of choice when it comes to color and pattern (including tartan! the tartan corsets are aaaaaaaawesome, too~).

you can read more about the corset here && the underwear here if you’re interested in seeing *all* the colors and styles available. and go get in touch with your sexy side too… ’cause it’s fun.

09.11.2012

…lots of fun. 😉

haute

there’s a new round of horror haute (that started today, the 25th!) and it includes a *new* mesh release from haus of darcy

08.25.2012

..perhaps it is hard to tell, but it makes me suuuper excited~

hod makes my absolute favorite body jewelry — i pretty much wear this brand exclusively when i want piercings (which, let’s be honest, i *always* want piercings). so new releases make me especially tingly… and these new earring sets do not disappoint.

08.25.2012

the earrings you see here (best in the middle photo, click the pic to see it larger) are the latest release out for horror haute, called counterpart. the large black lobe gauge is the mesh piece, which makes me even *more* excited for perhaps some more meshy goodness from aydan darcy, but you don’t have to wear these piercings with this particular gauge. there’s another set included without the black round gauge that are made to be worn with other ear jewelry from hod — including the dragon spiral gauges i love so much. hence the counterpart name~

i am so glad hod has released earrings like these. i tend to lean towards wanting as many rings-in-one as i can get, so when i *do* wear hair where the ears are visible.. i get a whole lotta bang for my buck, so to speak. i’ve been wanting a piercing set like this to wear from my favorite brand && now, i have them. ❤❤

there’s also a set of tattoo layers included (not shown here) that add a little bit of an infected look to the piercings.. and you can see that here. these earrings are unisex, they’re new, and they are absolutely wonderful. go grab ’em while they are on sale!

frock

this new mesh frock from mon tissu is so, so cute. it’s both sexy && girly all at the same time and i *really* love the way it fits.

…but i’ll be damned if the word frock doesn’t make me think of nothing but salad fingers.

08.17.2012

“that’s a pretty looking frock on your body.”

/me gets the jibblies

aaaanyway, enough about creepy and disturbing cartoons (lest i seriously freak myself out here) and more on the dress!

there’s lots of color choice to be had, but i picked a nice neutral gray. and despite the flowy fabric, low neckline && general *daintiness* of this dress… i couldn’t help but wear it in a rather un-girly-like way: with combat boots! \o/

said combat boots are also *new* && from red mint.. and are all sorts of deliciousness.

08.17.2012

i chose to wear the black pair with my look for today, but i figured the other colors were just too awesome not to show off. the three i have here are an awesome rust, a silvery-white and of course, black — but you can see the rest of the color choices right here. each pair comes with a HUD that allows you to change the socks inside in a whole slew of colors, but the best part? you can change each sock separately — even though i didn’t do it here, you can have a teal sock on the left and a white sock on the right. really awesome for getting another pop of color on your feet~

08.17.2012

i paired the dress with a *group gift* mesh tote bag from auxiliary, some jewelry from both amorous and blitzed, a fantastically sexy and side-swept hair from exile && two pairs of gartered socks layered together from league and sn@tch. it’s simple, it’s comfortable, it’s easy to wear && it’s a nice mixture of both ladylike and.. decidedly not. i love it when i’m able to wear an article of clothing this way — while it looks awesome in the way the designer intended, i’m glad i can style it any way i please and it still looks lovely. well-made things tend to lend themselves to this and there is no denying that mon tissu’s garments are at the top of the list when it comes to all things well-made~

i wanna do bad things with you

now that my move is over (or at least, the hard part is done! now i just have to unpack everything i spent a month and a half boxing up……….. grr), i’m back to second life… and back to blogging!

\o/

so i thought for my first post in my new house, to get back into the swing of things, that i’d indulge in what i like to call… a li’l fan service.

i may be slow to catch on, but i am currently *obsessed* with true blood. i’m desperately trying to catch up on all the episodes before the new season starts && considering the fact that i just started season 4 last night… i think i should be good before the premiere.

which is awesome, because today.. i’m doing my best impersonation of sookie stackhouse and channeling all things vampire bait.

05.16.2012

/me perfects her “sweet and innocent” look….

it definitely helps to have two *very* sexy volunteers playing vampires for me, too. 😉 ❤

i tried convincing one of them to go blonde, just for one post, because eric northman is one of the hottest vampires i’ve seen since spike (and just what is it about blonde vampires, hm?), but alas.. neither one of the boys were kind enough to oblige.

not that it’s a terribly big deal..

05.16.2012

..considering how well they played the part, blonde hair or not.

i *suppose* dark hair is just as hot on vampires as light hair is… mmh. not that i really was paying much attention to their hair… i mean, braden is there shirtless.. and allarik often looks prettier than *i* do. i’d be lying if i was really all that concerned about their hair color.

dressed

sometimes, a girl just needs a dress…

05.11.2012

..or two.

i am *not* the girliest girl, not by a long shot, but i can appreciate a dress every now && then. my taste in dresses is usually less.. ruffly and “lady like” and, rather, more… well.. less is more. so i decided to put together two looks for today, built around two short mesh dresses i’ve picked up this last week in world.

05.11.2012

the first is from paper doll, which is out for stumblebum this round. it’s skin tight, *just* short enough, and comes in some lovely color choices.. including this fading white-to-pink one i chose to wear here. li’l dresses like this are perrrr~fect for the upcoming warmer months && look just as nice with a pair of high heeled pumps as it would with, say… a pair of wedge sandals and some sunglasses. plus since it’s stumblebum, that means it’s *discounted* (25% off, to be exact!)… which always makes dress shopping that much more enjoyable~

05.11.2012

and speaking of discounts… this month’s round of collabor88 rolled over a few days ago. collabor88 is one of my *favorite* sales events and this month’s collection really bowled me over. there were so many cute things there this go ’round, it was honestly a li’l overwhelming! but i *did* manage to snag a few things amidst my bewilderment, including this dress i’m wearing here, from boom. which, tbph, is actually labeled as a long, baggy t-shirt… but to me? it looks like an adorable cotton minidress.. and worked rather well that way (but remember to wear panties, i’m *just* sayin’! ;)).

the earrings i’m wearing in both looks are also out @ collabor88, from intrigue co. the dangly charms are shaped like unicorns… unicorns(!!).. and come in sets that were made to mix && match colors. i probably didn’t pick the perfect hairstyle to show these earrings off (but i could not resist wearing this insanely cute style from ploom that i grabbed at culture shock), so you’ll just have to take my word for it. oooorrrr go try the earrings yourself to see! really, really cute.. and i did mention they were unicorns, right? because they are! unicorns!

warning

guess what!

one of my favorite people in sl (and my partnerrrr ❤❤), lars bleac, has come to the dark side. he’s posed for me and been here on my blog several times, but he’s decided to make his own blog.. which makes me so excited for him! now all i need to do is convince bff vivi to start her own blog, and all my plans for sl-blogiverse domination will be complete!! mwahahahahah–

/me coughs..

anyway. 😀

he && i took some pics together for his blog (which you can find right here: the warning label.. click and visit and tell him i said hiii~), but i couldn’t resist snapping a few of my own. he already posed us… and we were all prettied up, so i figured i might as well. /lazy

05.08.2012

i’m not even gonna *mention* what lars is wearing, just so you have to go visit his blog to find out (insert more evil cackling here), but i can talk about what i’ve got on!

the top i’m wearing here, which is slinky and sparkly mesh deliciousness, is from one bad pixel. i’ve needed an excuse to grab it && posing with the boy seemed like a perfect one.. it’s incredibly sexy and wonderfully made. i honestly could’ve grabbed one of *everything* from one bad pixel… everything there is gorgeous. the baby tux dress too was callin’ my name (especially in hot pink, oh man), but for my first purchase.. i’m really happy with this halter. it makes me excited for more new releases!

05.08.2012

the couple poses we’re usin’ here are from purple poses, which has a *ton* of super cute poses (and lotsa sexy ones too! ;)).. all of which are surprisingly inexpensive. i hadn’t given this brand a chance until i saw them at pose fair this year, but i’m very glad i did! lars seemed rather pleased with the poses, too.. i’m sure the fact that i was in his lap had *nothing* to do with it~

05.08.2012

but before i get all mushy here, i’d just like to (quickly!) say that i’m *insanely* proud of lars for takin’ the dive && starting his own blog. i know it’s gonna be fantastic, if his first post is any indication (not that i’m biased or anything….). as long as he keeps up with it ;P i promise you won’t be disappointed if you follow him! if you want his credits, and i know you do, then you’ll just have to visit his blog to get ’em! ❤

for lars’ credits, clicky right here!
