springtime pastels

to me, you just cannot have spring without a li’l bit of pretty pastel. it’s probably the fact that easter is spring, and easter usually means soft pink and baby blue and peach (and cadbury creme eggs!), but i always associate the beginning of spring with lighter colors.

03.15.2012

apparently, so does bff vivi!

we decided to girly it up today with colors befitting of this time of year… in some light green, lavender && lemon chiffon yellow~

as often as i wear bold, bright hues.. and as often as i wear all black, i can’t deny how lovely the lighter side of the spectrum can be… and how positively *feminine* you can feel while wearing them. there’s something undeniably… *ladylike* about wearing something that’s softer in color && it’s a nice change of pace for me. i don’t do the whole… ruffly fabrics && dainty colors thing a lot, in my first life or in my second life, so it was good to know i could.. if i wanted to. ;p

03.15.2012

while vivienne’s look all centers around the colors found in her *gorgeous* knee-high boots (from g field, at fashion for life).. mine was painstakingly (hah!) put together with pieces i picked up at collabor88. not only do i love the super steep discount found at collabor88, but the fact that usually there is a universal color palette used throughout all the items offered there. it makes picking up something from one designer.. then another… and another… to make a cohesive outfit so, so easy.

the top i’m wearing is from ufo, while the skirt is just one of many color choices set out by the sea hole. i like the contrast of the rougher fabric (adorned with girly li’l flowers!) of the skirt when paired with the delicate texturing on the top.. and how easily the shades work together, especially when accessorized with the necklace i picked up from collabor88 by yummy.

vivi’s look is just as pretty, if not moreso, with that stunning shade of pastel yellow. the jacket, from ricielli is a different sort of feminine — a polished, tailored sort — and it matches the floral folded-over top on her boots *perfectly*. her look also dresses up a simple, plain (and free!) tank top && her favorite pair jeans rather nicely.

so! girly-girl looks for today! it may not be my everyday, but there definitely is a softer side to vixxie. ;D i enjoy challenging myself to create looks that are outside my own personal realm of normal && it’s nice when it actually *works*. i can totally pull off a ~lady~ just as well as the next girl, riiiiiiiiight? …. right?!

runway

one of my favorite stores for poses, olive juice, is closing. ;.; it makes me unbelievably sad to see my faves close! but at the very least, there *is* a sale going on to help && lessen the blow… so of course, i went and grabbed all the pose sets i’ve been wanting.

the one thing i’ve been needing an excuse to buy is the runway pose prop.. and the fact that the store is closing was definitely a reason to pick it up. so bff vivi && i (along with a very small audience!) decided to play around on it while showing off some of our cutest lingerie… in a vixxie’s secret kind of “runway show”, complete with a set each of the *new* sparkly fairy wings from epic… which made us totally look the part!

01.23.2012

i’m wearing a set of the *new* zicke lingerie from onyx wear.. which is soo cute && yet seriously sexy. super bright colors, lotsa different patterns to choose from, and some extra girly touches with the lace and bows made these an insta-fave for me. frank windlow does sexy pretty damn well, so it’s no surprise that these undies are hot.

01.23.2012

vivienne on the other hand is wearing some adorable lingerie from blah.. there is no denying that blah does cute like none other, and the li’l wide-eyed owls are insanely kawaii. the cut on the panties is so flattering, with enough of a peek of the tushie to still be sexy too!

01.23.2012

it was a lot of fun posing on the runway, with our friends braden && allarik who seemed all too eager to volunteer as the captivated audience (wonder why!), but i honestly think vivienne and i took it a bit too seriously.

after our first pass in one set of undies each, she && i hopped off the catwalk to change into a second set. but we got a little… catty while “backstage”, which i guess is par for the course when it comes to lingerie models, and when i took a bit too much time changing… vivi, i think, was kind of annoyed with me. and in turn, i got annoyed with her right back..

so when i stepped back out onto the runway and immediately slipped….

01.23.2012

..i instantly thought it was vivi that pushed me.

we exchanged some angrily whispered words as we passed each other, pausing to pose for our audience and casting irritated glances at one another, and when we both stopped to strike a fierce pose at the end of the runway, vivi got a li’l.. handsy.

01.23.2012

i may not be showing it there in my face, because clearly i am *such* a professional, but as vivi closed in to try && shove me off the end of the platform… by this point, i was seething. seething! she was trying to ruin my runway show!! i had to do something.

i mean, i was sure she was the reason why i slipped (even though now that i look back at the snaps, you can totes see she had nothing to do with it!), she then tried to push me in an epic pose battle at the end of the catwalk… my only recourse was to…

01.23.2012

*ahem*

..was to give a member of our audience quite the scare.

it happens from time to time, even between bffs, to have a bit of a.. tiff. we just get too competitive sometimes, and it’s understandable. don’t worry, we got over it *mighty* quick && were back to bein’ bffles in no time… but for a little bit there, vivi and i were rivals on the runway. at least it made for an exciting show, i’m sure!

pandas

the seasons gatcha winter event started the other day (the 14th, to be exact) && runs almost ’til the end of the month (the 28th!). there are *tons* of adorable wintery things there — scarves, mittens, ear muffs, more scarves, sweaters… pretty much anything you’d ever need to feel all warm ‘n’ cozy.

bff vivi && i have been poking around the gatcha machines since the event opened, trying our luck in getting items in our preferred colors… but by far, our favorite gatcha item (and the one that’s made the most of our lindens disappear) is the one set out by illusory.

just *look* at how adorable these animal scarves are! *-*

01.20.2012

between the two of us, we have the entire set just by feeding the machine over && over.. trying to get all the rare pink ones. the white bear scarf is super cute, as is the orange tiger version too, but the pink panda.. the pink panda. oh it is insanely cute!

01.20.2012

i couldn’t help but make an outfit around this scarf… i mean, i may have squealed out loud when the gatcha gods smiled upon me && i *finally* won it. just look at its li’l ears.. and its li’l eyes.. i am in love with it. ❤❤❤

so i dressed to suit the scarf, with a white dress (that i’m wearing as a long-sleeved tee here) from sakide && some gorgeous mesh pants i’ve been meaning to blog from celoe. i was also lucky enough to win the *rare* bunny ear muffs from the gatcha by willow, which is another machine i fully intended on feeding lindens until i went broke trying to get the rare pair. i *did* get the owl pair as well (which look adorable with the brown bear illusory scarf, btw~) && i still want the skunk set too… but the rabbit-y muffs are adorable enough that i am appeased. … for now.

01.20.2012

vivienne dressed to match her scarf as well — going all over black-and-white with some wellington boots from needful things, a furry keychain from love soul (which is still having their half off sale, just fyi!), && another gatcha-win necklace from undefined lilies. her panda might not be pink like mine is, but he is just as cute! i love the way these are textured — they really do look soft and fuzzy and warm. and for only *50L* a try, it’s soooo worth trying your luck for one (or a few *cough* like we did) just cause they are so. damned. adorable.

merry christmas

ah, my last post before the christmas! it’s christmas eve && i am *so* excited for the festivities to actually begin~ and since i’m in such a good, holiday mood.. i’d like to just talk about a few things other than fashion for once.

12.24.2011

vivi && i have been trying as hard as we can to get absolutely everything done before tomorrow.. so we can actually relax && enjoy the holiday. all our gifts are wrapped and piled up in our living room, everything is cleaned and decorated, i even found the time to do *more* baking this morning just so i had nothing to worry about tomorrow. and i’m pumped!

halloween is still my favorite holiday of the year, but i can’t help getting into the holiday spirit around christmas, too. the familiar songs, the food, the friends && family, the weather (fingers crossed for a white christmas! whose with me!?).. there’s a lot to love about christmas. it all just gives me the warm ‘n’ fuzzies and it’s very, very easy to feel like an excited li’l kid again around the holidays.

12.24.2011

our entire house spells like gingerbread && peppermint. the stockings are up, the fireplace is lit, and even our meeroos are in the holiday spirit with some festive costumes. there isn’t a single detail i left out this year, i’d really like to make this holiday for vivienne and i and our friends a good one~

if you celebrate, i hope you have a fun-filled, wonderful day tomorrow. ^_^ i hope you get all the gifts you’ve been wanting, i hope you get some time to relax && enjoy the time with your friends and family, and i hope your noms are as good as ours are gonna be! ;3

vivi && i both wish you a very merry, very *calm*, very joyful christmas this year~ /me raises her glass of eggnog ❤❤

midnight sled ride

you ever have so much candy that you almost go out of your mind? you’ve got more sugar pumping through your veins than you have blood && you’re ridin’ a sugar rush so potent, it feels like if you were any more hyper.. you’d be a hummingbird?

no? just me && bff vivi then?

12.22.2011

a li’l christmas candy never hurt anybody, but maaaaaybe when your candy canes are as.. *large*.. as the ones vivi && i had.. well. perhaps a bit of moderation would have gone pretty far. but we both love peppermint and even though we already had sweets *before* we even dug into the candy canes, they were just far too tasty for their own good.

so after we polished off our peppermint… we got some ideas. some crazy, sugar-rush-induced ideas.

12.22.2011

..like, wouldn’t it be fun to take a ride on our sled in the middle of the night? off of the biggest, bumpiest, most tree-covered hill we could possibly find? hells yeah!!

our eyes were filled with determination as we stared down that hill. i was to give vivienne a running start to help the sled pick up momentum more quickly, then hop on the back just as the sled started down that hill..

12.22.2011

and we were off!!

it felt like we were going about a million miles per hour down that hill. trees, rocks, snow-covered ground.. all of it went past my eyes in a blur. it was absolutely thrilling && in the process, after going over a few rather large bumps, vivi and i both lost the last bits of candy we were snackin’ on. but it didn’t even matter! the ride started off fast and exciting, we were practically flying down the hill on our sled! she && i were screaming and laughing and decided to treat it like a roller coaster ride — hands up and everything!

but as our small wooden sled rounded a corner..

12.22.2011

…we realized why there weren’t more people taking advantage of our sweet sledding hill.

as soon as the tip of our sled tipped over the edge of that drop, vivi && i knew what was coming. the hill, as it turned out, took a rather sharp dive straight down… and it was far enough down the hill that we couldn’t see the drop off from the top through the trees. we were going far too fast to stop the sled, the only thing we could do was scream (or in my case, try not to cry!) && ride it out and hope for the best.

we finally landed in a snow drift towards the bottom of the hill, it was the only thing that could stop our sled. vivi went flying face-first into the snow, but i tried to dive off to the side… and ended up rolling the rest of the way down the hill. we didn’t get hurt too badly (vivi had a nose full of snow, while i just ended up with twigs and li’l pebbles stuck in my hair), but we were scared shitless.

let our adventure be a lesson to you! no matter how super awesome && amazing an idea sounds to you when your mind is clouded with obscene amounts of sugar… don’t do it!! you’ll end up having your slife flash before your eyes, develop an irrational fear of sleds && probably pee your pants in fear in the process. ….. *ahem*

12.07.2011

it feels good to kiiiiiinda get back into the routine of blogging, i really do miss it when i take extended breaks from it. there’s always something new && exciting that i’m missin’ out on when i don’t keep up with it and quite frankly, i don’t like missing out on the goodies. :< it takes a lot of snooping and reading and browsing and going through notecards and blogs to finally feel like i’ve caught up on everything new. sucks balls, i tell you!

but when you take the time to TP around, to peep your favorite stores && what they’ve been releasing while you’re away… you stumble upon some insanely cute things that you wish you’d scooped up sooner. lii~iike, for instance, the skirt i’m wearing. it’s from mon tissu and oh man, i am in *love*. it’s partially mesh && partially regular ole clothing layers and it blends flawlessly. i love mesh as a whole, but things like this where it compliments the way i’m used to wearing skirts in the past only better… totes makes me love mesh that much more. if the middle part of the skirt was a normal prim, i cannot even begin to tell you how annoying it would be to pose && photograph this outfit. but with mesh? i didn’t even have to worry about it. wiiiiiin.

and it makes my ass look *so* good. y’know, ’cause that matters, too. …/me coughs

12.07.2011

and along with my skirt, the sweater i’m wearing is also new-to-me from koketka. long-sleeved sweaters like this are honestly a staple in my sl-wardrobe, i own a bunch of them, but this one was juuust different enough to actually catch my eye. i really like the jewel detail on the chest, makes it look very *holiday* to me, but not so flashy that it looked like i had a bust-line full of sequins. which .. no.. definitely not the kinda look i’d be going for. x3 and i thought the black sweater, paired with the dark tights from rezipsa loc && ridiculously cute heels in black from g field really made the khaki skirt stand out.. beige and tan and khaki aren’t my usual colors, but i think had i gone with black for the skirt, i would’ve looked like one big blob.. and that’s not ideal either! and i love how *wintery* skirts + tights looks, especially when i’m skipping around on an equally appropriate wintery sim. makes me feel all warm && fuzzy inside… and stuff.

platinum

the platinum hunt was *amazing* this year. and there’s only a few more days left to grab the goodies set out for just 10L at the participating stores — the hunt ends on august 31st! so bff vivi && i thought we’d show off a few of the prizes you can snag for super cheap just as a friendly li’l reminder to get ’em while you can! it’s definitely worth doing and *so* not hard at all.. we finished it in just a couple hours and that’s including a lot of goofing off!

if you need a list of slurls && hints, you can find that right here.. and good luck hunting! ❤❤

bubblegum mermaids

bff vivi && i have had a fascination with mermaids ever since we both were youngins. the little mermaid was, like, *the* movie for us.. we both were pretty much obsessed. x3 and because of that, she and i have always kinda wanted to float around in sl as pretty mer-avatars, but we never found the right bits && bobs… until recently, that is.

8.27.2011
click to see it larger @ flickr!

evie’s closet is a new-to-me brand, but oooh my gawwwd such pretty things there! it *totally* made me tempted to buy an entire wardrobe of mermaid tails just to have one for every day of the week! @_@ the one vivienne is wearing was actually discounted, but i’ve no idea for how long! if you’re a.. frugal mermaid, it’s definitely worth grabbing. it comes with every last li’l bit you need to look the part — all the fins, the tail, the scales, the delicate accessories && the lovely top are all included. it’s in such a beautiful color palette, looks very… opalescent to me.

8.27.2011
click to see it larger @ flickr!

and since it’s bubblegum weekend, vivi decided on a pretty shade of lime green hair from truth.. that looks all… floaty && soft, like it would while in the water. with the colors she picked, white and gold and green, she looks very sweet && innocent. like a *good* mermaid! while i, on the other hand (or fin? i suppose?)…

8.27.2011
click to see it larger @ flickr!

…look like her evil friend. ;3

my tail, fins, top, belly ring, crown && bangles are all from evie’s closet too. but i decided to go the darker route, which always seems to be the case. and there’s nothin’ wrong with having a li’l bad in you, as long as it looks as nice as these pieces do! i was really, really worried about how the tails would look.. if our legs would *mesh* well enough with the prim attachments to look seamless, but i am quite impressed with the way they fit and with the way they look. all you need is a decent mermaid AO (of which there are several *cheap ones* on the marketplace if you search!) to help keep your legs smushed together for the illusion to work. it’s flawless && it’s awesome, and testing out swimmy animations in the water off of our new land was *so much* fun!!

8.27.2011
click to see it larger @ flickr!

and since my fins were black && silver, i decided to go with that theme all over — complete with some coral-y face makeup from chelle, a choker from loulou&co, a pair of mysteriously dark eyes from insufferable dastard (which is seriously my go-to for eyes now) && wispy, blue hair from exile that looks both badass and water-swept all at once. \o/

just like everything in sl that i enjoy — whether it’s elven ears, faun legs, horns, wings, kitty tails, demon skins, or even things like piercings and tattoos — it’s awesome to me that i can wear one thing one day.. and then something totally && completely different the next. if i feel like swimmin’ around as a mermaid, i can (and will!) and it’s as easy as switching to a different outfit. the freedom to do that, even in a virtual world, is an awesome thing! i’m glad that there are talented content creators out there that will indulge my.. fickle nature and make such perdyyy pieces for me to hoard. and speaking of hoarding, the blue version of my mermaid outfit is callin’ my name…

if only the lights would dim a little
i’m weary about eyes upon my scars

yeah, love is a verb here in my room
here in my room, here in my room

i absotively love this song by incubus. it’s one of my favorites from that album && probably one of my favorites, period, of theirs. and it was fitting, in a literal sense, for my blog post today considering…

8.23.2011

…i’m here in a room all by mahself. can’t say for sure if love is a verb in my room, but it *might* be if i wasn’t alone. 😉

said room i’m posin’ in is *new* from magnifique && i am adoring the new props that scarlet chandrayaan has been making lately! the couch i plopped in my room, so it wasn’t all empty inside, is from magnifique too — and chalk full of super cute poses just like the doorway && room prop i’m highlighting. it makes for much more interesting photography than just white walls && floors. i just felt.. compelled to decorate it (however sparsely..) inside, but what can i say. i’m on a decorating kick lately, new home and all..

8.23.2011

i may be blocking the door, pretending i’m a model, but you’re more than welcome in my room with me. …as long as you promise to take your shoes off before you sit on the couch. oh, and use a coaster if you set a drink down on the table there, too. huge pet peeves of mine! D:<

88 is a magic number

collabor88 is an awesome thing. like, so awesome i wish i could give a big ole hug to *all* the designers participating. granted, it made my inventory overflow.. but in really, really good ways. \o/

you could give yourself an entire makeover for very few lindens at this sale. there’s shapes, eyes, hair, skins, shoes && a ton of cute clothes. on top of furniture and poses, too. @_@ all for so cheap, it’s almost redonkulous.

bff vivi && i were there the first night it opened, scoopin’ up cheapies.. so i thought we ought to show off some of the stuffs we acquired. any excuse to use some super cute gliteratti poses (which, btw, is having a SALE atm!! weeee~).

grixdale has a goodbye pack set out @ collabor88 and it is stuffed full of goodies. several dresses && makeup tattoos… makes me both happy and sad. but the dresses vivi && i are both wearing are from the grixdale pack and are *super* cute. so girly in pastels, with frills and adorable patterns… and the lovely texture && prim work that tyr rozenblum is so very good at.

and our hair… it has been all over *everything*, and with good reason. both of these styles are from elikatira && are just so pretty. my favorite of the two is definitely the one vivi is wearing, it’s so soft and whispy and all the colors are just .. gorgeous. and for 88L per color pack? vivi && i totally stocked up — i even bought colors i don’t even wear because it’s just so cute.

boom and whippet and buck also have awesome (and inexpensive) items at collabor88. the top vivi is wearing is actually part of a set of *two* that you get from boom — all in bright ice cream inspired colors. and the top from w&b that i’m wearing is actually something i debated back and forth on buying. i wasn’t sure if it was me, but it was cute, and then i couldn’t pick a color… but i am *so* glad i eventually bought it. it even has poofy sleeves! who can really, honestly say no to poofy sleeves?! when they are nice as these, i know i sure can’t. ;p

if you haven’t been, you should definitely go. it runs for a month, until september 8th, when the collection will change. it makes me excited, if it’s a recurring sale, ’cause the first round? was a total win imho!
