back to black in mesh

chic management’s back to black event is already underway, so i’m a li’l slow in showin’ off some of the goodies found there. but it’s for a *fabulous* cause, to raise awareness for mental health issues, and is one of those events where you really, really should go and browse the items offered && read the information out there.

02.16.2012

one of said items @ back to black is this amazing mesh dress, from onyx wear. long sweaters and sweater dresses have pretty much been a staple in my winter sl-wardrobe, as is clearly evident by many of the posts here on my blog, but this one… with the subtle tiger-face print on the front and the *fantastic* wrinkling details on the mesh make this one of the most realistic && wonderfully designed sweater dresses i now own.

02.16.2012

and since i was already wearin’ a mesh dress, i decided to go mesh all over with the rest of my outfit. the hair style i’m wearing, which is *new* from wasabi pills is mesh (and delicious, i loooove these gorgeous waves! omgah), the boots i’m wearing are mesh && from ten 10, and even my eyes are mesh.. from mayfly.

i chose some simple accessories from addiction && iced and some leggings from rezipsa loc to pull the whole look together. i kiiiinda took the whole “back to black” thing literally with my color choices, ahaha, but! it’s still an awesome event to check out if you’ve not done so yet. it’s something that hits home for a lot of us on the grid, some extra awareness can *never* be a bad thing. ❤

santa’s li’l helpers

it’s the day before christmas eve && i am *sure* santa could use all the help he can get! it’s probably hectic up there at the north pole with all the elves runnin’ around, trying to get absolutely everything done before the big day. do you think he’d let bff vivi && i help out?

12.23.2011

we’re obviously christmas-ready and willing to help in any way we can! i mean, nothing says “i’m here to help~” like fluffy white fur, short skirts && red panties… amirite? ;p

and lucky for us, there are a lot of christmasy freebies on the grid this year.. y’know.. to aid in makin’ us feel festive. vivienne && i are wearing a bunch of freebies from various stores in both of our holiday looks, in case you’re needin’ a xmas-outfit-on-a-budget.

12.23.2011

the short dress && hat with horns that vivi is wearing are both group gifts from epic. i always rave about the items from epic because they’re *always* nicely made && adorable, but joining the vip group is totes worth the fee. there’s a bunch of gifties for group members under the tree in the front of the store, vivi’s outfit included, and will pretty much dress you head-to-toe in christmas goodness in no time flat!

another good group to join is the group for vinyl cafe. the fee to join is tiny && the group gifts are frequent and generous. the boots i’m wearing here are a past group gift, that actually came with a bolero, dress && ear muffs as well. the *mesh* santa hat i’ve got on is a past group gift from insufferable dastard — yet another group with plentiful monthly gifts. the set of hats came in a bunch of colors, and each color came in plain, striped && patterned versions, and since it’s mesh.. means it fit perfectly right out of my inventory! another freebie i’m wearing, the holiday light string ’round my neck, is a hunt prize from blah. it comes with a couple static poses and isn’t so much a necklace of lights as it is a .. noose… of lights. but! it’s fitting for the time of year, at least? xD

oh, and the nose ring i’ve got on? *also* a freebie! it’s a hunt prize from hod so you know how excited it makes me. it’s not exactly super christmasy, but it’s freeeeee and it’s hod. you should go snag it while you can, because i said so.

*and!* there’s lots of holiday cheapies && full outfits out at sakide, which is where my panties and jacket set is from, and they’re all conveniently located in one building outside the main store. my outfit actually comes with a lot more pieces than just the two i’ve got on and there’s a ton of other christmas-y bits and pieces out at sakide. there are more costume-type outfits, or just cute separates that are fitting for the holiday in decoration or in color, and for the price you pay… it’s like one-stop shopping for holiday attire~

so there’s no excuse not to look festive if you’re celebrating christmas this year! freebies, cheapies && gifts galore out there on the grid. and who knows, the more christmasy you look.. perhaps santa will let you help him out, too! ;D

shopping junkie

can i tell you how *excited* it makes me when a favorite store of mine is having a sale!? i get all giddy && giggly and my lindens start burnin’ a hole in my pocket. there’s nothing like the thrill of a good sale, riiiiiiight?

/shopping junkie

so imagine my excitement over a sale @ roots! eeee~~ lots’a sexy clothes and accessories to be had.. and a discount makes it *that* much better! \o/

the corset (of which i can *never* seem to have enough!), skirt && stockings are all from roots. and when i think of the clothing i own from roots, i always think of nice quality.. lovely textures.. and the fact that everything i’ve ever bought from there makes me feel like i ooze the sexy. and who doesn’t want that!? haha~ low necklines, short hemlines, see-through mesh && juuuust enough to keep all the lady bits covered (mostly! teehee). if i’m going for that particular kinda look, ’cause y’know.. i like to be all *sex kitten* every once in a while ;), roots is definitely awesome for hookin’ a girl up.

keeping up with all the sales on the grid sometimes is a li’l overwhelming. i try to stay on top of it, but sometimes i just caaaan’t. you gotta be kinda picky when it comes to which sales you go to (or, if you’re me, you gotta actually *remember* what sales are goin’ on!), but they are worth it if your inventory is looking sparse. unlike mine, which seems to be a black hole for clothing and hair and shoes and skins. but even that doesn’t stop me from ravaging a good sale when i see one. it’s like i can’t stop myself!

my own amusement

i *love* amusement parks. i love the atmosphere, i love the rides, i love the food (omg french fries, why do amusement parks always have the best french fries?!), and i love the general good times had with friends && family~

well, the general good times had with friends && family… when said friends && family are actually there with you. but this time, i was all by my lonesome..

at least i looked cute while i was there. ;3

the short skirt i’m wearing is from berries inc && is *discounted* to 50L. there’s a whole flea market outside the store with cute separates all for 50L, including the skirt i’m wearing in an entire range of denim colors. summer time is perfect for short skirts, ’cause.. y’know.. help keep you cool 😉 and all, but you just have to be really careful while hopping off and on rides. luckily, no one was around to see, but i may or may not have flashed a li’l bit of skin while climbing off of one of the merry-go-round horsies. ..tee hee.

and fooooooood, i mentioned food didn’t i? french fries, mmm… cotton candy… caramel apples.. and ice cream. junk food paradise! and i picked up this conveniently appropriate tower-of-ice-creams pose from olive juice @ the summer gatcha festival. that’s gotta be at least three pounds of ice cream on mah cone, and the flavor on top looks like pistachio. delicious~! i could seriously murder an ice cream cone as big as that, despite how petite i may be. i’d probably feel like a beached whale afterwards, but i could so do it. /me drools

perhaps next time i feel like takin’ a ride on the ferris wheel, i’ll have someone to go with me. taking pictures alone is a-okay, but one can only scream “WEEEEEEEEE~!!” so loud while on the bumper cars alone so many times before you just start to feel silly doing it!

first things first! i am on plurk. you should totally add me because i’m lonely and i need plurk-y friends. :3

/shameless self promotion

onto the actual post!

sometimes, all it takes is *one* article of clothing to inspire a whole ..theme for me. and when it’s a beautifully tailored *free* jacket, i can’t even begin to resist the inspiration it gives.

7.07.2011

this *group gift* jacket from shine is probably meant to look.. military-inspired. but when i tried it on, the first thoughts that popped into my head were all piratey. not sure why, it doesn’t exactly look like somethin’ captain jack *swoon* would be wearing, but it just looks.. nautical to me. in a high fashion kinda way.

i tried, so many times, to take more snaps than the two above while on *location*. really, i truly did. but things just were not cooperating. i crashed a thousand times, shadows were bein’ wonky, other residents were there exploring (and rightfully so, the black spot sim is gorgeous!) && kept getting in the shots i was actually able to take… /me grumbles

so for the rest of the post, i’m stuck in my white box.. but at least shadows worked better && i didn’t crash while photoshooting! \o/

i’m wearing a whole bunch of other freebies today, too~

my glasses are (were?) a hunt prize from candydoll, the swirleh face tattoo is a freebie from kristica, the nails && rings are a subscribo gift from virtual insanity.. and.. the red, white && blue necklace i’m wearing was sent out free to people sub’d to the primalot update group.

aaaaaand my hair! it’s from rezipsa loc @ hair fair and i love it to *bits*. there’s a dollarbie version in a nice, bright blonde that comes complete with a li’l buzzin’ bee floating around your head (sooooo super cute), but this version with it’s color-change headband sold me. it comes with matching hairbases(!!) that i am in love with because.. it is so. fucking. hard. to find hair bases that match the shade of blonde i prefer. i either have to wear a white hairbase, which often looks a bit.. off, or wear a darker blonde && *hope* it meshes well with the hair color i want. so i rarely, if ever, wear hairstyles that require a hair base.. but this? looooooooove!

ambiance

sometimes, it’s not about all the pieces to an outfit.. but, rather, the look as a whole. and now that my compy can handle shadows and shaders and lighting, the look as a whole also includes scenery and backgrounds.

for a blog that’s supposed to show off cool things i find && love, i apologize in advance for the fact that some of the photographs are just too damn dark to see everything properly. but! call it.. artistic expression? maybe? teehee~

7.05.2011

atmosphere plays a big role in how i photograph now. i kinda.. take a step back, look at what i’m wearing, and decide what an appropriate backdrop would be. if i’m prancing around all cute && kawaii, being on a rusty steampunk sim just wouldn’t fit (no matter how much i like to mix contrasts!). and if i’m dark and *evil*, taking pictures by a pretty park fountain wouldn’t be right, either. finding the right *ambiance* can make a look really stand out, i think, but it’s actually finding it that’s the tough part.

i cannot tell you how many sims i bounced from while trying to take these pics — all while crashing roughly ten thousand times. but the result, in the end, is what matters. and it came out pretty perfect imho! \o/

see, it takes more work now than just puttin’ on a cute outfit and calling it a day. ;p

dark && discolored though it may be, you can kiiiiiinda see my outfit.. right? xD

the pants i’m wearing are a *freebie* from whippet & buck for the opening of the truth district. the gift actually comes with two tops i’m not showing && is most def worth snagging. and, luckily for us, all the group gifts will be out an extra three days — until july 8th — so there’s still plenty of time to de-prim and de-script and battle the lag monster for some fantastic goodies~

the tank top i’m wearing is from hucci && i’ll be honest, i hadn’t even planned on popping in to hucci today. but eboni khan is always so generous to her subscribo members ❤ that she dropped a 100L gift card on us today. 8D with the discount, this tank was only *25L* && it’s super cute. i love the flowy look the hem has and the fact that it gives just a li’l peek of the tummy without being completely bare it all. the price i paid only makes it that much better!

and this hair… from magika at the hair fair.. i mean, i bought a shit ton of hair already && plan to go back tomorrow (shopping trip! \o/ woo!), but this one i think is *by far* my favorite. i’ve said it in the past, but no one does long && whispy like sabina gully does and this hair is just… wonderful. i love the added braided piece and it reminds me a lot of the ren style i already love so much. this one is just a bit wavier && extra *sexy*.

/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!

there’s so much sexy in my post today, it really needs no introduction && i’m not gonna even try to write one!

6.10.2011

seeeee? i told ya~ ;p

let’s start from the top down, shall we? the *uber* sexy long-sleeved shrug i’m wearing is new from red mint. i gotta say, when i discovered red mint (on the fashion blog feeds, no less!), i tp’d there almost immediately. && when i got there, saw it was affiliated with red queen and roots, i promise you i got all kinds of giddy inside!

this top is amaaaa~aaazing && comes in a whole array of color choices. nicely sculpted cuffs and collar, with just a teensy peek of nip and yeah, i am gonna be totally *glued* to this top for a while. moni schulze does sexy so well.

and my shoes

6.10.2011

then are *unf unf* delicious. as i’ve said before, nardcotix makes such fantastic shoes. and these heels are strappy and ultra-high heeled and come complete with easy to tint prim feets && toes. even though i own about a billion pairs of shoes, sometimes tinting skin-to-prim can be a hassle. but it literally took me two minutes max to get these shoes to match my choice of skin. i love it when it’s that easy~

the tattoo-layer makeups i’m wearing today are *freebies*! i love me some tattoo layer makeups — it makes the skins i own even more versatile than they already are. if i don’t like a particular makeup, i can alter it with extra eyeshadow, eyeliner && lip color tattoos to make it how i want it to be. i tend to wear as many as SL’s viewer allows me to && the two i’ve layered together are *group gifts* from mock. joining this group… so, so worth it. the notices are filled with free makeup-y goodness, which.. i just gotta say.. when a group offers extra generous gifts, it makes me wanna throw my lindens at the actual products that much more. i sense a makeup shopping spree in the near future.. /me whistles innocently

good shit today, yes? yesyesyesyesyes! i’ll be scampering around in world today in my sexy heels && my sexy top and slather my sexy all upons anyone i happen to come across. mwahahahahh!

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!

twisted, pink && kawaii

there always seems to be a shit ton of hunts going on in second life at any given time. and i, as a seasoned hunter ;), and appreciative of this! not only do you get some *awesome* goodies for free, but it also help broaden one’s shopping horizons. some of my current favorite shops, i discovered while doing hunts in the past! \o/

so i recruited bff vivi to help me show off a few goodies from three of the hunts going on at the moment: the twisted hunt, think pink && the kawaii hunt.

9.13.2010

all three hunts are sprinkled over our avatars in various ways. but the majority of our outfits (including our skins!) are freebie hunt prizes. there are some amazing items to be found on all three of these hunts, so let’s get started!

9.13.2010

vivienne is rockin’ quite a few gifts from the think pink hunt. her skin (that is absolutely stunning) is the prize from mynerva. it has brown brows && such a sweet face, with pretty berry-pink makeup. her top is from black & blue outfitters and she paired it with the skirt-half of the prize from paper doll, the necklace we both picked up from iced and some pink-accented piercings from ipoke.

her ballerina flats are the kawaii hunt prize from scribble and are so cute. there’s a little button detail right by the toes! the tote bag she’s wearing, filled to the brim with mushrooms (she must be hungry..) is the prize from love soul. and her tattoo sleeves are from nightshade, which was a nice surprise. i wasn’t expecting some ink from nightshade, but this tatt is adorable. cobwebs, hearts, bats && stars… all the things a girl loves. ;B

and the twisted hunt is represented by the ears vivi is wearing, from shitz n giggles. i know her hair obscures them a little bit, but they are *amazing*. lots of piercings, tons of detail.. they are so worth the frustration in finding them. i can’t give you a hint unfortunately, but if you like elf ears like vivienne && i do.. you’ll definitely want to snatch these up!

i on the other hand am wearing more of the twisted hunt than the other two. the dress, that i *absolutely* adore, is the prize from sassy kitty. it comes in a bunch of layers && a non-bloody version too, but i really like the ribcage design. thankfully, the whole ‘bloody’ theme seemed to run through the twisted hunt frequently, so it was easy to match my dress with the battered boots from fatal error && the rings and nails from virtual insanity. the prize from virtual insanity is really generous too, just as a head’s up. the piercings i’m wearing were included, but there’s a backpack, earrings && necklace in the gift as well!

my skin is also from the think pink hunt, but from the starting location: candydoll. it should be no surprise that i love candydoll skins and rebeca dembo always gives out awesome, quality skins as hunt prizes. bubblegum pink lips && eyeshadow, compared with the gorgeous body candydoll skins have… love it~ plus it’s in my favorite skintone of hers too, win!

and the kawaii hunt… the leggings i’m wearing are the gift from izumiya. they come in a *fatpack* of colors, so it’s not just gray you get in the package. on tons of layers, too! which makes mixin’ && matchin’ so much easier <33

we both finished our looks with some non-hunt stuffs, including new hair from truth, a tattoo (on me!) from para designs that’s an awesome new release, and a set of nails (on vivi!) from love soul. but as you can see, most of both of our outfits are made up of hunt prizes. and there’s lots more we’re not showing you. it’s perfectly plausible to dress yourself from hair to shoes in quality freebies… if you have the patience to finish these hunts, that is. ;D
