so! i’ve showed off my new bedroom already && today, i’m posing in part of my living room…


bff vivi and i have been putting a few last finishing touches on our new home.. y’know, the little details that make things look more “lived in”. and since our living room is so huge (ie, there’s enough room for a full living room set while *still* leaving half the room undecorated), she and i decided to put down a cute dining room set… even though we don’t have a kitchen. ;P only in sl!

and so my look for today is very appropriate for lounging around my house, something comfy but still cute.. while i rez and re-rez candles and books and paintings and picture frames and flower pots.


this cute cream-colored mesh top i’m wearing is *new* from sakide. there’s lots of new releases at sakide, all of which are awesome separates. ponchos(!), jeans, stockings, boots.. but these v-neck tees were probably my favorites out of the bunch. they are great for layering, which is something i *love* to do in autumn, but still season-appropriate enough on their own to totally work for fall. and i liked this khaki color for how versatile it is to work with!

i know it’s kiiinda hard to see, but check out my necklace! it’s *adorable* && is out @ collabor88 from intrigue co. little potted cactus plants, each dotted with small flowers.. how cute is that!? the set comes with a matching ring (that i *am* wearing here, even if i’m a derp and didn’t photograph it properly :/) and earrings, where each choice has different colored flower accents. so fun && so *cute*, i love accessories like these!

today was kind of a lazy day, i mean.. i didn’t even bother putting on shoes! but i still like this look for how real it is. i wouldn’t be moving furniture around in my rl in a skirt, heels and flowy top.. so i don’t do it in my sl, either~

i’m kind of… accidentally patriotic with my look for today. powder blue isn’t *typically* the shade one associates with the good ole red, white and blue.. but that ended up being my color scheme for the day~


and it *all* started with this cherry print skirt.

i picked it up from teefy @ the new fameshed collection because… it’s cherries(!). this print is so cute and i love the way these skirts fit. high-waist skirts are always super sexy, especially when they’re nice and short like these are, but i chose to wear the skirt underneath a large ‘n’ comfy hoodie (from ispachi — this light blue color is wonderful!) for a more cute, casual look.


these shoes from g field were *perfect* for this look… because while i grabbed the black pair, most of the shoe is totally customizable. the upper half, the toe, the sole && the laces are all texture change, so i was able to change my shoes to match my red && blue look. these shoes are fantastically made (as is everything from g field), and really nice for casual wear.. and the fact that i can match them to just about *anything* make these a great bargain.

the sim i photographed this look on is so cute! i spied it first on juicybomb and made a mental note to visit when i had a look appropriate enough for the sim. and i have to say, the build there is *really* creative. almost everything is animated — there’s a cute li’l fisherman sitting on a bridge over the water and a lady peeking out of the window in her home, for example — and it all looks like the hand-drawn style of art found in a children’s book. big poofy clouds, oversized butterflies.. there were even swans floating around in a pond. not only is this sim wonderful for photographs, but it’s also just so *adorable* for exploring. check it out if you’ve not, yet!

the arcade

so the arcade gatcha event started yesterday, if you’ve not heard…


…and it is full of such awesome stuffs!

i have a serious problem with gatchas — i will play and play and play until i get what i want (which, more often than not, is the rares inside, ahah). but this time? i really lucked out when it comes to the things i won! yaaaay me and yaaaaaay for my luck~

the pretty peach top by ison, the *adorable* bow’d mouse ears are from auxiliary, the grocery bag packed full of macaron cookies is by bcc && the gorgeous magenta eyes are by insufferable dastard — and all are spoils of my gatcha-ing. and even luckier for me? they all worked awesomely together!


i paired it all with some *new* mesh jeans, also from auxiliary (and are out @ fameshed) and a pair of peachy-pink metallic heels from g field in the *most* perfect matching shade… and i toted my full grocery bag all around an incredibly adorable sim called itutu, which provided a very fitting background.

even though i got pretty lucky when it comes to my gatcha goodies, i *still* cannot help but wonder if i played just one more try.. if i’d get that rare i’m pining for. hmm…

corona radiata

there are *new* piercings out @ haus of darcy(!!) for horror haute and…


..just look at how amazing they are. pardon me while i drool all over myself…


the corona radiata set includes both the facial && chest piercings (and i know it’s hard to see thanks to my choice in hair, cause i’m just good like that.. derp. but! there are eyebrow piercings too on the facial set), are *unisex*, come in a pack with eight of aydan darcy‘s gorgeous metallic textures… and the entire set is just *100L* from today until 31st.


i’m wearing the set here in seep (the dark red) && razor (which is, by far, my favorite metal *ever* on a piercing in all of sl — this dark, shiny, gunmetal color is the first one i always reach for). and do i even have to put into words how much i love them? hod jewelry is, imo, the nicest for piercings on the grid, period. you always get something that’s out of the ordinary, with lots of options, for an incredible price. so these… i *highly* recommend you grab while they are on sale!

it is rare for me to blog, let alone be in world at all, without some of aydan’s jewelry on. hod has been, for quite some time, my go to for piercings && uniquely beautiful jewelry. i’ve raved about haus of darcy so often here because… i blog things i love. i blog things i wear. vixxie just isn’t vixxie without piercings… and hod‘s are so high on my list of favorites that no other brand can really compete.

so if i’ve not convinced you in the past to go check it out, you really should go now and see exactly what i’m talking about. i *promise*, you will not be disappointed! ❤

get the piercings (and everything else!) yourself:

for the love of..

the ftlo millenium hunt started today && there are lots of awesome goodies to find. and one of said hunt prizes is a set of *three* sexy pairs of jeans from sakide that i am absolutely loving.


a li’l shiny, a li’l ripped, a li’l retro… these jeans are hot && i couldn’t pick between these two pairs of the three to show off. so i decided to make two looks just so i could wear both in one post. :3 jeans are just as much of a staple in my sl-wardrobe as tattoos && piercings are, so *free* and *nice* jeans like these are most definitely welcomed additions.

since the ftlo hunts work differently than most, i’ll explain a bit how to find these pants. there is one random, regular item marked down to *1L* somewhere in the participating store mixed in with the normal products — not a regular hunt object. you have to find the marked down item, buy it, and you get the extra hunt prize for free with it && a LM to the next store. should be a good haul, i’m super excited to get started with the rest of the hunt~


i’m also wearing one of the *new* hair releases from milana. you get four hairstyles for the price of one — the style with bangs, the style without bangs, then both styles with or without roots. i love milana’s lightest blonde color (called pearl), but this darker golden blonde petal shade is just gorgeous. it’s definitely not a color i wear often, but i really should.. it’s lovely. and these long full waves, side-swept bangs && teensy highlights and lowlights in the textures make this hair so pretty. i’m really liking it, especially in this color, just for something different from my usual white-blonde. not that i’d ever perma-switch from swedish blonde 😉 but it’s nice for a change, hm?

kiss me at midnight

new year’s eve!! \o/ it’s mid-afternoon, and yet the festivities seem to have been kicked off already…



bff vivi && i *really* stocked up on champagne this year. last year, we had two bottles and quite frankly… the bubbly ran out *long* before it came time to ring in the new year. but we’ve learned from our mistakes and we both made doubly sure there was enough champagne to last the evening. there’s gotta be at least a half dozen bottles scattered around our home, in buckets with lots o’ ice, just so we always have some on hand should someone like to make a toast once our friends arrive.

..even if we both keep sneaking sips of our own here and there. >.>


and vivi more so than me, every single time i look at her.. her glass seems to be empty (when she’d only just refilled it!) && her face seems to be even more flushed. and i have seen her stumble a little in those super high heels *twice* now. /me squints her eyes at the bff

but it’s in the holiday spirit, i guess! and really, what’s it gonna hurt if vivi is a li’l extra tipsy before the party can even start? it might make things more fun that way — a drunken vivi is a sight to see, lemme tell ya~ and at least we both look super cute! 8D

we are both excited to start off the new year right.. with our friends around us, happily sloshed, watching that big glittery ball fall in times square nyc on the tele. good food, good company, good drink.. shall be an awesome time all around!

i wanted to take the time out today to say a couple things, before my head is filled with a million li’l bubbles. i wanted to wish everyone a very happy new year && i hope your 2012 starts off amazingly! i wanted to thank all you guys out there that have read my blog over this last year, i really do appreciate it very much. ❤❤ the awesome feedback i get is the reason why i keep blogging, you have no idea how far your kind words go and i thank you muchly for it! and i wanted to thank all the designers on our grid, that work so hard over the year to give us fantastic new releases && gifts… i hope you know how much your hard work is appreciated! *raises glass* here’s to 2012 being the best year yet, with lots of happiness and prosperity and new beginnings! cheers!

don’t forget the violence

jam with me! \m/ -_- \m/

violent seduction is having a *huge* sale right now.. everything, absolutely everything, in the store is half off. and since it’s one of my favorites for all things dark && girly, i figured i’d show off two looks featuring lovely lovely things from violent seduction that you can pick up for a nice, hefty discount. 8D

click to see it larger @ flickr!

plus, it’s been a while since i did one of *these* kinda looks.. something out of the ordinary from my usual jeans && blonde hair kinda looks. i figured since i hadn’t done one in a bit, doing two would perhaps make up for the time lost? teehee~

click to see it larger @ flickr!

in this first look, i’m wearing the lenore dress… but not even all the pieces to it. there’s several different ways you can wear this dress && there’s a few other included accessories i didn’t include in my outfit. that’s why this sale is *so* good — normal price, for what you get is an amazing deal. but on saaaaaale? it’s a big fuck yeah from me!

click to see it larger @ flickr!

the second look centers around the muse dress.. which, again, comes with a few different options for wearing. there’s *three* different skirts — the short version i’m wearing here, the lolita version, which is right at the knee and poofy, or the long version which goes right to the floor. the detail on both of these dresses is *superb* and i love the textures, the prim pieces (all of which are so easy to fit), and the choices in color (i’m wearing both in “death”, but each comes in several colors to pick from!).

click to see it larger @ flickr!

accessorize with piercings and jewelry by hod && mandala, some suuuuuuper cute new hair styles from ploom && two (sadly) limited edition skins from pink fuel.. and these looks just fell into place so nicely.

and this sim… oh my god is it amazing. the fashion shots i took do *not* do it justice, so i took some landscape snaps to show it off to you. it’s hauntingly beautiful.. delightfully creepy. very unique build and it was the perfect backdrop for some dark photography! check it ouuuutt~

mesh goodies

thick, bulky sweaters seem like mesh was made *just* for them. no longer do you have to worry about fixing prims, resizing them to fit, or having the prims go completely wonky on you while your AO is on…


..instead, you can simply plop a mesh top on and get as bendy as you like! \o/

bff vivi && i have been pretty much obsessed with all the mesh offerings on the grid lately. we’ve gotten *incredibly* spoiled by now nicely && how easily mesh garments fit.. and lucky for us, there seems to be no shortage of mesh items to pick and choose from.

in fact, if you’re still a newb to mesh (which, c’mon.. firestorm just did a full release of their latest viewer && it supports mesh! there’s no excuse now not to upgrade!), and looking to just test the waters a li’l bit… the large-collared sweater i’m wearing, by aitui, is out @ collabor88 for just *88L*. there’s two colors, the lovely emerald green i picked && also a nice subdued red, and a demo to test your size.. and it comes in a version for the guys.. aaaaand it’s incredibly inexpensive! i love cowl-neck sweaters irl and this one mimics that style perfectly — the fact that i didn’t have to fuss for an hour getting the prims to fit my small size is only icing on a delicious mesh cake.


vivi’s hair && long cardigan are also mesh.. both of which blend together nicely with normal clothing layers and prims. her hair, from wasabi pills, would be hell to wear && photograph even if it had split attachment points. there’s always something that sinks into shoulders or arms or chest with long hair… but with mesh, it always sits just right over her shoulders that only the *craziest* poses would make it break. i enjoy wearing mesh hair myself too, i just sometimes miss the movement prim hair can have.. but for photography? mesh hair makes things so much easier.

her mesh sweater, by mon tissu, looks *so* warm && soft. the textures on this piece, as with all of the pieces we both own from mon tissu, are reach-out-and-touch-it realistic. it shows just enough of the collarbone area to layer a tank or tee underneath, as vivi’s done here, and still is super cute for outerwear. the pretty shade of blue just looks wintery to me and mixes well with the shades of white && gray vivienne chose to accessorize with.

and i know it has little to do with the fashion aspect of my post, but how cute are these reindeer we found?! we even found rudolph!! they didn’t seem to mind at all when vivi && i used them like pose props and back drops.. and rudolph was exceptionally eager to have his photograph taken. who knew reindeer were so photogenic, hmmmm?

red nose

nothin’ says holidays like some antlers && a red nose..


…amirite? xD

said antlers && red nose are courtesy of the newest group gift from the vinyl cafe — the group has a minimal fee to join and there are always generous gifts either sent to the group or set out at the mainstore for group members to grab. these literally made me smile, especially the big ole glowy nose, && mirrored the design on my dress far too well not to wear!

and speaking of dresses…


these frio dresses from candydoll are *so* cute! snuggly warm knit fabric, nice wintery designs across the front && *just* long enough to either be a cute mini dress or a long sweater. i’m wearing them with patterned leggings, also from candydoll, but these would totally look just as adorable over plain leggings or pantyhose when worn as a dress.. or some jeans, a jacket && ankle boots to turn them into long sweaters.


each color has a different design.. and the red && gray versions (seen above) have patterns on them fitting for winter, but not so much for christmas specifically if it’s a holiday you don’t celebrate. i love the length on these && the versatility — and the fact that you’re spoiled for color choice, as always with candydoll goodies, makes these an instant-favorite for winter. if you’ve seen me in world in the last few days, i have been living in these sweaters… they are so fun to mix ‘n’ match with!


and the antlers are pretty fun, too~ ;p
