november

ah, november… even though it is undeniably autumn now that halloween is over, and i’ve woken up every day recently in my rl to typical fall weather with cold winds && lotsa rain (damn you, hurricane sandy!), i wasn’t really feelin’ the whole bundled up sort of look for today.

11.01.2012

and it has a *lot* to do with these shoes. but i’ll get to that in a moment~

most of this look is made up of things i’ve had floatin’ around in my inventory for a li’l while, which is.. refreshing to do, sometimes. i know i talk a lot here about the black hole that is my virtual wardrobe and even though at the moment it is mostly organized, there still are things i rediscover in there that i forgot i had. it’s nice to go shopping in my own inventory && put together a “new” look with stuffs i’ve bought in the past. y’know, give them fresh new life and all that!

i grabbed this bra from sn@tch, during a recent sale. i *think* the sale has ended ( sorry, blogger fail ;( ) but this lingerie set was pretty and *leopard* and caught my eye. i picked up a few other things during that sale… as i do with most sales. can’t just buy one thing, right? ;P but i felt like blogging the lingerie without doing a *typical* lingerie post. because i’m sure the last thing ya’ll want to see is me in my panties, riiiiight?

so i threw on a blazer, because.. it’s classy, okay? and this one from house of fox is *super* cute. the shape is wonderful, i love the collar && the draping folds of fabric, and it showed just enough of the bra to appease me while still keeping me .. mostly .. covered up. i grabbed for these maitreya jeans to pair with the bra ‘n’ blazer, because honestly? they are probably my absolute favorite mesh jeans to date. they fit in such wonderful ways and the butt is fantastic.. and since i was already wearing some *new* maitreya goodies, i figured the jeans would be a perfect fit.

and yes, now will commence the gushing over these shoes..

hi, my name is vixxie, and i am in slove with these wedges. these are the *new* maitreya sandals called suave and they are amaaaaaaaaaazing. while i chose to wear ’em here with this look as solid black sandals, they actually come with a lot of options for customization.

the wedged heels come in four different texture choices (two are shown above) *and* these shoes can be worn with socks or without. the socks come in eleventy billion color options, too, which made me *squee* with joy. wedge sandals aren’t typical fall and winter footwear but these socks make them *awesome* for layering with leggings and jeans.

when i saw the ad on onyx leshelle‘s flickr i was honestly expecting the sock && no-sock versions to be separate… so imagine my glee when i realized they are all-in-one. and believe me, i agonized over which color to grab. i finally settled on this black pair, because you cannot go wrong with black, but the hot pink raspberry color && the deep red oxblood color also called my name… i have a feeling i will be *forced* to go back && pick them up, too.

maitreya’s mesh items are so fantastic and these shoes are no exception. expect to see them here often on my blog, because they will be *glued* to my feet for a while i’m sure.

taking an idea of one of my favorite fashionistas, i’m wearing the dress by house of fox out @ the dressing room blue as just a skirt rather than a full-on sequin dress… && paired it with the *new* mesh cardigan by pumpkin and a freebie tee from onyx wear. just a hint of glitz in an otherwise sorta urban-casual look works pretty well… in my humble opinion. 😉

i am *so* late when it comes to hair from burley, but this style i’m wearing here is just gorgeous. i’ve seen it all over the feeds && in world and resisted the urge to go demo, just because i need more hair like i need more skins or more tattoos (read: i don’t, lolol) but i finally gave in. and i love it. i’m wearing the shorter version here, but there’s one that’s so much longer and full of glorious waves. it’s incredibly well-made, i really am sad i’ve not taken advantage of this brand sooner~

and i’ve got some good ole staples from my inventory on with this look… things i always seem to fall back on. finger tapes from sini style, platform boots from the abyss, horns from illusions && gartered socks from league. i’ve probably featured them 3249347 times here on my blog over the time i’ve had it, and definitely worn them in world more times than i can even count, but nice accessories never go out of style no matter how long you’ve had them! ❤❤

for funsies

sometimes, it’s good to do a look just for fun. not.. that i don’t *always* have fun with the looks i do for my blog, ’cause believe me i do. but there are times when i just wanna… throw on something supremely colorful && run around on a candyland-esque sim merely because i feel like it.

and sometimes, it’s even more fun to drag a friend into it, too.

i love that bff vivi humors my whims. ❤❤

she && i have taken some epic pics in the past (just in my humble opinion, ahahah) but these i took of us together are probs some of my favorites. the looks we put together, both centered around some goodies we snagged from blah, are so *cute* and so *colorful* that it was hard to pick just a few snapshots to show off.

01.04.2012

the sim we were on was the perfect back drop, there were teacups and gumdrops and lollipops and donuts scattered all over the soft pink-icing mountains. and the spot i chose to take the majority of our pictures, by the water, had two candy-colored tentacles (one in blue && one in pink) snaking up out of the surface and one large cupcake hanging off the side of a cliff. how awesome is that?!

plus the dress vivienne is wearing, and the cropped top && body suit i’ve got on, are all from blah and made it very very easy to dress insanely bright and adorable. the colors in vivi’s dress remind me of a sunset, pink && orange look so nice together when they’re that vibrant and saturated, and mine…. well. both pieces i’m wearing from blah were *free* for group members (the dark blue body suit is a vip group gift && the ridiculously cute li’l raccoon tee is in a group-only lucky board!), which makes me love this look that much more.

it’s good times, lemme tell ya, to run around on a pink frosting mountain in bright colors with your best friend. the fact that we took some nice snapshots in the process, i suppose, is just an added bonus!
