loft

back to a more normal look for now, because you can’t spend all of october in costume…

…well, i guess you could, and i’d certainly try, but y’know. just go with it.

10.16.2012

vip group members for oOo studio were treated to this grungy loft posebox the other day && it inspired the entire look you see here. pose props, for me, are usually hit or miss — i tend to like them, but only if they’re unique enough to really stand out from finding a nice in-world backdrop. and this one, with the included poses and all those dynamic shadows cast through the windows and doors, was definitely a hit with me.

10.16.2012

also released the other day are these pierced && gauged ears, from mandala. it was instant love for me, i *had* to have them, and they are worth every linden imho. the options alone for wearing these make them fantastic — there’s tons of textures and colors to choose from for every single part of these ears (including the *adorable* kitty faces i chose here for the plugs) as well as several sizes of gauges in either plugs or tunnels. they look amazing on and are packed full of bits ‘n’ bobs, as if i’d expect any less from goodies from mandala~

plus, new *gorgeous* skin from glam affair, some mesh skinny jeans from sakide, a new gorgeous updo from truth… and… i guess i couldn’t resist adding in a li’l extra halloween with these alien eyes from insufferable dastard that are out @ the cinema event. perhaps this could count as a halloween costume for an alien, y’know.. trying to blend in? kind of a stretch but i’m trying, okay!? i can’t help it that i’m *super* excited for the 31st.. ~_~

duality

so, the other day when i blogged two of the pxl gatcha skins with bff vivi… and i mentioned at the very end how i had a second skin i was working on a look for?

10.09.2012

..tada!

this skin is labeled as demon… but this half-beauty, half-beast sort of face *immediately* made me think of a certain villain from gotham city. and thus, this look was born.

and, i have to say — it has been a long long time since i was *this* inspired by a set of skins. they are so creative, and because of that, it was easy to be creative myself when dressing to match them. i am *so* in love with this skin, honestly, that i about squeeeeeeee‘d when the gatcha gods smiled upon me and i got it on my second try.

10.09.2012

of course, i couldn’t simply dress in a half-and-half suit and call it a day. i mean, certainly that’d be fitting for the character i’m trying to emulate and everything… but i had to girly it up just a li’l bit. a lacy bodysuit from sakide, knee-high boots in black ‘n’ white from gos, half and half stockings from izzie’s and this perfect mesh jacket from gizza round out the look in tailored, monochrome loveliness. it’s sexy and structured and just a little bit naughty… and i totally love it.

but you be the judge! the skin gave me that extra nudge to go for it, but here was my original inspiration..

so how did i do? am i two face enough? ;)

09.23.2012

so! bff vivi && i raced to g field the other day when we saw these new beth ankle booties released. and we both, once we stopped drooling all over the demos, snagged ‘em in gray and black. we could not resist playin’ dress up with them and thus… these looks were born.

these boots are *so* great for fall — which the weather for me in my rl is lookin’ more and more like autumn — and they’re designed to perfection. the laces, metal && soles are all color-change no matter which color of boot you pick up.. and the overall shape and texturing on these is just wonderful.

09.23.2012

the booties were also released with a set of floral-patterned tights (which are set out @ the ridiculously affordable price of just *50L* per color!) which vivienne is wearing here in the black-and-gray combo. and this look she put together here, with a longer tunic (from villena) and leggings and boots all works together in a trendy, but casual outfit. comfy, but still cute!

09.23.2012

i decided to take the boots in a different direction — dressing them “up” a little bit with lots o’ layers. a short-sleeved lace cami (from sn@tch) underneath a cropped mesh top i grabbed from ison… and i, too, am wearin’ tights (from izzie’s) with my shorter pencil-style skirt from mon tissu.

and, because we’re best friends && it’s just what we do, we’re both wearing pink and purple versions of the necklaces by maxi gossamer from the arcade gatcha event. mine was actually a gift from vivi (making it even more special, d’aww ❤) and provided not only a nice pop of color amidst all the black and gray, but also gives a best friends necklace effect.

and yes, you’re all welcome to “aawww~!” with me. ;D

virtual closet

keeping my virtual closet tamed is an arduous task. there are so many talented content creators out there on the grid these days that trying to limit myself seems… almost foolish. there’s too many awesome things out there to wear and to see and to *hoard* in my inventory, that calling myself a shopaholic..

09.21.2012

..is really an understatement.

if you remember not so long ago, i took on the job of organizing my inventory. at the time, in january, i’d whittled my inventory number down to a mere 21k. and it was *awesome*. i could easily find things, i had everything sorted in folders && subfolders, and i didn’t have the unnecessary clutter of older, unused items hanging around. they were boxed up or deleted and it was a beautiful thing!

i kept up with it for quite some time — making sure i immediately unboxed everything i bought && then organized it down into my inventory appropriately. i kept a folder of things i wanted to blog separate and, once i had blogged it, i moved it down into the rest of my inventory. but unfortunately…. the habit didn’t last.

a few “meh, i’ll do it later” excuses and suddenly… my inventory was out of control. my number steadily increased while the organization decreased. things piled up in my objects folder, everything was in disarray, and it was *really* hard to find items unless i searched for them by name. the longer i put it off, the worse it got, until it.. again… was a large task to undertake.

but! after getting completely tired of losing track of my stuff, i put on my big girl pants and tucked in to reorganizing. my inventory is, once more, a beautiful thing!

09.21.2012

while doing these clean-outs, i’ve discovered things (or re-discovered them, i suppose, is more accurate) i’d completely forgotten i had. like this panda necklace, for instance, from izzie’s.. i couldn’t tell you when i bought it, but it’s *adorable*. and i’m sad it got lost in the depths of my wardrobe for so long!

and older purchases are not the only things i found… this hooded jacket, from pumpkin, is a more recent acquisition. and i love it. i live in hoodies in my real life, and i could not say no to this pretty pink color, but. when i grabbed it, it quickly sunk into the mass of other folders and other items i’d bought and even though it was not long ago at *all*.. i totally forgot about it. but since my inventory is back in order, i found it && have been happily wearing it around in world for the last couple of days.

i even went so far as to make sure i organized things i bought in bulk. there is a sale going on right now @ elikatira where *everything* is an amazing 70% off. believe me, i went and splurged on *tons* of stuff — hair i’ve had my eye on, styles i already own but in different colors, shooooooes(!) — and as soon as a teleported back home? i made sure i opened things up and dragged them into their correct folders. because styles like the one i’m wearing here are far too cute to leave to the bottomless pit, right?

so! if you’ve been putting off organizing your own inventory like i was, let me kindly remind you to start now! i promise you’ll thank me later~

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

shake it

09.13.2012

my very good friend, kystria aura, has been releasing lots’a new tattoos through her store, kys this… and the one i’m showing here is probably one of my favorites thus far. shake it like an etch-a-sketch… don’t mind if i do. ;P

and lucky for me, i had the perfect top to wear *just* to show off the lower-tummy tatt~

sakide has released some basic mesh tanks in a bunch of colors… and i am always looking for tank tops. i firmly believe you can *never* have too many basics, especially when it comes to tanks — they are so easy to wear && mix ‘n’ match with. when i don’t know what to put on? I search for a tank top and these from sakide are super cute!

aaaaand these tops give you options, too. check it out:

09.13.2012

each color has two ways to wear it. the shorter, cropped style that shows off the stomach && a longer, more ruffled style (achieved with a second mesh add-on) as shown in the middle up there for some extra coverage.

i’m only showin’ off three colors here, but there are lots of other colors to pick from. basics *never* go out of style and if you’ve got some funny, quirky, sexy new tummy ink to show off.. these tops work out perfectly~

mon tissu

so when i saw mon tissu was having a contest for bloggers, i could not resist throwing my hat into the ring…

Mon Tissu Blogger Search Entry - Vixxie Vultee

mon tissu is, hands down, one of my favorite brands on the grid. i wear their pieces in world && here on my blog *constantly* (i mean, just look right here!) because i adore this brand so much. everything released always has wonderful construction, lovely textures, and an innate style to them that make it so easy to put together a definitive *look*.

mixing && matching is one of my favorite things to do — take a piece from here, another piece from somewhere else, an accessory from yet another place and so on — and items from mon tissu have become a staple of mine in my virtual wardrobe for this. there are pieces i always search for in my inventory, clothing that i seem to fall back on because i like the fit or i like the look of it, and mon tissu’s releases rank right up there in my most searched for items.

Mon Tissu Blogger Search Entry - Vixxie Vultee

the look i put together for these pictures is simple and casual — something i think mon tissu does amazingly well. denim is, by far, one of the easiest things to wear in world && these shorts (as well as the loulou jeans and the newer mesh nora jeans) are my absolute favorites. and when paired with a cute tank, a jean jacket && a scarf (in a peach shade that mon tissu does *so* well), the look i have here is casual but cute… and works great for that *in between* weather right now where it’s not quite summer anymore and still not quite autumn, either.

having a wardrobe of well-made, cute, *simple* pieces makes changing outfits and making new ones that much easier… and some of the nicest i own are from mon tissu. i couldn’t resist at least taking the time to blather on about one of my favorite brands, beyond just entering the contest, so if you’ve not checked them out (and why the hell not?!).. then i honestly can recommend you do so! i’ve never been disappointed by anything i’ve purchased from mon tissu (and, actually, the contrary is quite true — every release gets better and better and makes me more excited each time) and this look here shows that whether it’s prim or mesh, mon tissu does it *very* very well~

beach bodies

after seeing the pretty crossing currents sim on strawberry singh‘s post, photobombed, i knew i had to take pictures there eventually.

so when bff vivi && i decided we needed to prance around in swimsuits for a few bloggity pics, i knew exactly where to take her!

except, she and i didn’t get photobombed… i kept an eye out for that bird berry mentioned… but i didn’t see it *anywhere*. nothing out of the ordinary popped up in the background of my photos..

05.07.2012

so strange, right? where *did* that bird go?

no matter!

spring means getting beach body ready, right? and vivienne && i thought we’d get a li’l practice in, before swimsuit season *officially* gets here. there are some bathing suits out there on the grid already, which ended up being most helpful while we were putting together our summery looks~

05.07.2012

mine, for instance, is from stellar — which just released a whole new collection of bathing suits that are more on the *modest* side. i can appreciate that, considering that the vast majority of swimwear out there right now leaves very little to the imagination, and these new tankinis are so cute! plus, just because i’m a li’l more covered up, doesn’t mean i can’t be sexy.. just look at that peek of booty on those shorts! ;D

05.07.2012

vivi went with a more traditional bikini, that she picked up from a new-to-us store called the bishes inc. these ‘kinis came in a ton of color choices && are nicely made.. she and i both really liked the ties at the hips. simple, cute and inexpensive too… which is always nice, ’cause a girl could go broke buyin’ swimwear, for reals~

i’m still not sure where that bird got to, though. perhaps he didn’t like us as much as he liked berry? i’m not sure! but i was expecting to be photobombed by him && ended up not seeing him at all… very peculiar, indeed.

short shorts

one of my favorite pieces in my virtual wardrobe.. is a good pair of denim shorts. for the upcoming warmer months, nothing is easier to work with than a great pair of shorts. they match with pretty much anything you could think of, from tees to tanks to bikini tops, and denim cutoffs especially are a nice blend of cute, neutral && casual.

04.24.2012

this *new* pair of jean shorts i grabbed from izzie’s are so cute… and are just short enough, definitely not too short if you know what i mean! seeing them almost immediately made me think of summer sunshine, so i *had* to have ‘em~

the belt is from izzie’s too && came in a pack that made it a steal. five different leather textures, two different metals, and it comes in versions with a resizer or without… all in mesh! \o/

04.24.2012

and speaking of mesh… i am *so* in love with the latest mesh releases from mon tissu. super cute halter dress, more denim shorts (yaaay! \o/), && the ruffle-hem tank i’m wearing here. soft, pretty colors with all those lovely details in every last ruffle… yum, i was sold on these tanks before i even got to demo.

i’m wearing the sheer version of the tank here (you get a normal version && a sheer version with each color), with another tank underneath (from sakide), for a more layered look… but honestly? the sheer version isn’t *so* sheer that i’d be flashin’ my tatas all over the place had i decided not to wear a second top underneath. i really like that, especially since the sheer version looks so delicate && light.. which was perfect for the look i was going for.

i broke out some pixelmode wedge sandals from last year && this dip-dyed ponytail from magika both to add a bit of pink… just because i could. ;p and i revisited a sim i snapped pics on in one of the first posts i wrote after getting my new, souped up computer. in fact, it was the first sim i dropped in on to take a pic with shadows enabled, period. nicely landscaped, with lots of green, and it’s the home to pivaaca, too — it made a lovely background for some springtime snapshots.

but it was hard, lemme tell ya, not to venture over into the store part of the sim && go shopping. ugh. #secondlifeproblems

class act

it is absolutely beautiful outside today — warm and sunny and bright with just the slightest hint of a breeze. and since it is so gorgeous and springy in my rl, i decided to recreate the lovely springtime feeling while snappin’ bloggity pics in my sl as well~

04.04.2012

the sea salts sim was a *perfect* backdrop.. the entire build is all kinds of wonderful. i took several snaps of just the landscape, which i’ll add in at the end of the post, because it was so nicely done. i had a lot of fun wandering through the paths && patches of grass and flowers… and of course, i had fun posing myself, too, amidst all of it while trying to show off my look for today.

04.04.2012

i dressed all around these *mesh* pants from aura.. which, to be fair, i’m a *little* slow on grabbing for myself. but when bff vivi and i visted the fashionably late sale the other day && i saw these pants were there.. *and* they were marked half off? i had no excuse not to pick up a pair! the fit on these are great — low-cut, but not enough that my entire booty is hangin’ out, with some retro flared legs && lots of tweed patterns to choose from. different lengths are also included, depending on whether you decide to wear flats or heels with ‘em, and the shape as a whole was just… flattering.

so i added one of the *new* mesh tanks from cold logic, a super high && super sexy ponytail from ploom, some heels i picked up ages ago from deco (i *think* they were a fifty linden friday offering back then.. here’s hopin’ they are still available!), and a few nerdy accessories… y’know… since the pants are called *class act* and all. i snagged these glasses from december (and truth be told, i love the way i look in glasses :X i am always, always tempted to make reading glasses be more of a *staple* in my virtual wardrobe, the way piercings && tattoos are) and a space invaders(!!!) inspired necklace from love always. this necklace, honestly, was *slove* at first sight — not only is it color-change, but the design… oh it feeds that inner geek inside me. love it!

pretty sim, a casual look, && some *beautiful* weather in my first life as well as my second… today was a good day for me! i hope everyone else’s mid-week is going just as smoothly! ❤❤
