bundled up

i am in *love* with the newest round of collabor88 goodies…

11.09.2012

…not only is the color palette gorgeous (shades of deep orange, golden yellow && cool teal-blue), but just about everything i spied there was callin’ my name~

collabor88 is one of those events that i look most forward to every single month. the mixture of home furnishings (which *really* helps, considering i’ve a brand new home to finish decorating!), fabulous fashion, accessories and even poses is all kinds of awesome. but this round, i found *so* many things i honestly flipped out for that i couldn’t even fit everything into one look. the collections just keep getting better && better and this round was definitely no exception.

the dress i’m wearing here is *so* sexy. it’s from hucci and i absolutely love it. the turtleneck collar, the length of the skirt, the lovely suede texturing…. and the way it moves… it is just flaw free. the fit on this dress is fantastic and i adore this blue-gray color, but i also snagged it in black because it was just too *good* to pass up.

11.09.2012

glam affair also has a few new things at collabor88 this round, including both the boots(!) && the skin i’m wearing today. the seul ankle boots come in a range of really pretty jewel tone colors that almost look metallic, but my favorite was this pretty golden bronze color. it’s neutral enough to work with just about anything i could possibly want to wear ’em with, but still *unique* enough to really add a pop of color into an outfit. they are shiny and high-heeled and impeccably textured. love~

and the skin…. well, it *is* that time of year after all. being a little under the weather is not uncommon in the colder months of fall && winter, but at least you can still look adorable with your snuffly nose. this set of skins, in glam affair’s roza and ginny faces, can either look like you’ve got a bit of a cold…. or like your face is flushed from being out in some chilly wind. such a cute idea that translates really, really well if you take lots of pictures in-world like i do. having that extra flush on the cheeks and nose, when combined with a “cooler” windlight setting && maybe a scarf (like the one i’m wearing here, which is a *freebie* from mr. poet!) totally adds another level of realism to your snapshots!

had enough halloween? not me!

10.19.2012

to be fair, i’d wander around the grid like this even when it’s not halloween… but these “costume” kind of looks are so fun for me to put together && i could not resist doing something a li’l spacey!

this look here involves a lot of good stuff, so i’ve got lots to talk about!

10.19.2012

first, the dress… it screamed *sci fi* to me. it’s new from glam affair && is out @ fameshed. i love the super structured shoulder pieces on this dress, it definitely looks to me like some sort of cybernetic uniform and it inspired my entire look for today~

next, the booooots(!). these are found @ the cinema event, by decoy. that entire event is just amazing — from the build, to the theme, to all the goodies offered there — and these boots in, appropriately enough, the sci fi section were one of my favorite grabs. i love the shape of them and the fit.. and those colored stripes towards the foot are color change in either solid or glittery choices!

and the skin… which really gives my avatar an alien sort of vibe. it’s *new* from red mint and while, technically, the one i’m wearing here is meant to be drow.. i think it really works well for a sci fi, fantasy kind of look. this silvery blue is so pretty && it comes with a ton of options for cleavage, freckles, and different lips. plus! if i weren’t wearing these awesome arm prosthetics from grollwerk, the skin even comes with pre-tinted glove layers to cover the base fingertips for wearing prim nails. *much* appreciated, because i do like my prim nails.

don’t worry — i’ll get back to blogging more “normal” things eventually. but doing halloween looks are just too much fun~ :3

new goodies at collabor88, a lovely new collection at league (including a set of *freebies*!) && embracing the flushed cheeks sort of chilly temps outside..

10.10.2012

shades of mint, golden pink and bleached bone are not exactly typical for autumn, but *i* think this look works! i mean, who is to say i cannot wear a nice short skirt when it’s windy and blustery outside, hmmm? ;P i have tights on! that’s enough…. right?

10.10.2012

but! i mentioned new stuffs, didn’t i?

the new collection @ collabor88 rolled over the other day… and a few of my favorite things this round include the skin i’m wearing here by glam affair with the most *perfet* rosy-red cheeks, this mint sweater by ufo complete with a flamingo-patterned button down underneath, and these spiked bracelets by maxi gossamer. i couldn’t help but pair the sweet, feminine sweater with these punk’d out bangles — not only does it keep a li’l extra bit of vixxie in this look, but offers a nice contrast between cute ‘n’ trendy and dark ‘n’ badass.

league also is full of new things — like these delicious ankle boots (that i picked up in this nice neutral bone shade, love!) && a set of freebie infinity scarves that are perfect for keeping you a li’l warmer. there’s also some other goodies like patterned leggings, jewelry (which i *will* be back for) and a set of mesh tanks in a ton of color options… but these boots(!) and these scarves were def my faves of their new releases~

so i worked in some *freebie* tights from n-core, a past freebie mesh mini-skirt from the hucci subscribo (designer eboni khan is super generous with her gifts, so join the subscribo if you’ve not already!), and some *new* mesh nails from virtual insanity to complete the look. i’m layered *just* enough to not look silly while walking through this autumn-ready sim, but not so covered up that it feels like winter. because i like the fall, i love the fall, and am not quite ready yet to say goodbye to lots of leg and shorter skirts.. that’s what leggings are for, after all~

fall

where, exactly, did september go? is it just me or did this entire month just fly on by? not that i’m complaining or anything, i mean… tomorrow is october 1st && all.. and only brings me closer to halloween (aka, my absolute favorite holiday of the year!), but seriously! september seemed to go by really, *really* fast!

09.30.2012

so i’m embracing the incoming autumn today~

*discounted* autumn at that — almost everything i’m wearing clothing-wise is on sale or heavily discounted!

this two-tone sweater is from milk motion && is set out @ the mainstore for a tdr-esque discount. the cropped hem && realistic texturing made this a no-brainer, i grabbed it immediately. and i love it, especially for how well it works with a more layered look like i’m wearing here with a (freebie!) tank underneath from jane.

09.30.2012

the mesh jeans i’m wearing here are from crash republic and i originally saw them on oh ohna‘s blog. they are fabulous — they fit my shape *perfectly* and come with both scrunched and rolled-up cuffs. they are currently discounted to a mere *95L* until tomorrow (october 1st) and are so worth picking up. there’s a nice selection of neutral and decidedly not neutral colors and i adore the shape of these~ the price + the fit on these make them an insta-fave in my inventory right now.

the boots.. these lovely boots from maitreya. they are a group-only discount from a little while ago but last i checked are still available for the smaller price… and given the fact that the group is *free* to join make them even more awesome. this soft, camel color is wonderful for more subdued autumn palettes and, as always with items from maitreya, the scrunchy shape and textures are reach-out-and-touch-it beautiful.

and, lastly, this gorgeous skin from pink fuel is out @ a steep discount for the rummage sale on the atomic island sim. ploom, aura, atomic, riddle, paper.doll… and of course, pink fuel, all have older items set out for some *very* nice prices for the next week and i could not say no to the set of elly skins offered there. a few are older event-only skins and one, i believe, was a hunt prize… but i somehow missed out on them the first time around so i was very happy to add them to my collection.

lots of awesome discounts out there on the grid these days! it makes both my inner shopaholic and my linden balance happy. embracing the chillier temps in second life is super easy when generous designers set out discounted goodies for sale~

frock

this new mesh frock from mon tissu is so, so cute. it’s both sexy && girly all at the same time and i *really* love the way it fits.

…but i’ll be damned if the word frock doesn’t make me think of nothing but salad fingers.

08.17.2012

“that’s a pretty looking frock on your body.”

/me gets the jibblies

aaaanyway, enough about creepy and disturbing cartoons (lest i seriously freak myself out here) and more on the dress!

there’s lots of color choice to be had, but i picked a nice neutral gray. and despite the flowy fabric, low neckline && general *daintiness* of this dress… i couldn’t help but wear it in a rather un-girly-like way: with combat boots! \o/

said combat boots are also *new* && from red mint.. and are all sorts of deliciousness.

08.17.2012

i chose to wear the black pair with my look for today, but i figured the other colors were just too awesome not to show off. the three i have here are an awesome rust, a silvery-white and of course, black — but you can see the rest of the color choices right here. each pair comes with a HUD that allows you to change the socks inside in a whole slew of colors, but the best part? you can change each sock separately — even though i didn’t do it here, you can have a teal sock on the left and a white sock on the right. really awesome for getting another pop of color on your feet~

08.17.2012

i paired the dress with a *group gift* mesh tote bag from auxiliary, some jewelry from both amorous and blitzed, a fantastically sexy and side-swept hair from exile && two pairs of gartered socks layered together from league and sn@tch. it’s simple, it’s comfortable, it’s easy to wear && it’s a nice mixture of both ladylike and.. decidedly not. i love it when i’m able to wear an article of clothing this way — while it looks awesome in the way the designer intended, i’m glad i can style it any way i please and it still looks lovely. well-made things tend to lend themselves to this and there is no denying that mon tissu’s garments are at the top of the list when it comes to all things well-made~

events galore

it seems like there is never a shortage of events goin’ on in sl these days. whether it’s sales, discount stores, charity fundraisers, themed events… not that i’m complaining, of course (and neither is my wallet, lemme tell ya), but trying to hit ’em all up can be quite a task!

luckily, bff vivi is just as much of a *shopaholic* as i am.. and thus, we can conceivably take advantage of twice as many sales as we could on our own if we combined our shopping forces together~

05.21.2012

she && i have hit up quite a few events and sales lately.. so we thought it only fitting to show off our haul together!

05.21.2012

a new round of the my attic sale on the deck sim started up last night… including *lots* of our favorite brands. the pretty skin vivienne is wearing here, along with this *adorable* pigtail hair, are both @ my attic from ploom and are discounted to just *95L* a color/tone. i think it’s safe to say that vivi’s *favorite* brand for skins is ploom — she has worn the maia face pretty exclusively since she snagged a few of helyanwe vindaloo‘s skins. this particular skin is a different face, lea this time, but it looks just as pretty on vivi as her usual, and the discount.. i’m fairly certain vivi squealed when i told her about it. ;p

her top here, by baiastice, is out for a hefty discount @ the dressing room blue.. along with a whole slew of awesome goodies from some amazing brands, as usual. both of the dressing room events are fantastic ways to discover new-to-you brands (for instance, neither vivi nor i owned any baiastice mesh clothing before this… but after seeing this top? and its adorable star pattern? makes me want to rectify my lack of this brand in my inventory!) as well as grab some items from brands you know for much less than expected. this top in particular was a nice find.. the color, cut && *price* make it perfect to lounge around in while the summer heat creeps up!

05.21.2012

the ruffly yellow shorts i’m wearing here, by g field are a *donation* item out @ culture shock. g field can really do no wrong in my eyes when it comes to shoes and clothing (but especially shoes!!) so grabbing these was a no-brainer.. especially since the cost to purchase goes right to the charity culture shock is raising funds for. these shorts are cute, flirty && packed with details all over.. the bright yellow color (which i am *loving* lately) was just a bonus.

and the last sales event i wanted to touch on was this month’s round of collabor88. there’s no shortage of goodies at collabor88, some of which i’ve already blogged, but the cloudy-sky necklace i’m wearing here from league (those clouds.. they move!) && the white shrug i’ve got on by kyoot both were things i *had* to have. i always look forward to when a new collection @ collabor88 goes up and this round was particularly wonderful.. i don’t think there was anything i *didn’t* like.

shopping on a budget can be a bit of a pain, but there’s definitely no reason not to hit up all the various sales && events out there to feed your shoppin’ need. and you never know, you could discover a new favorite designer… which is always exciting.. at least to me. /shopping junkie

coffee && cigarettes

04.12.2012

the third annual pose fair is starting up soon… on *april 15th* to be specific… and i am so excited for it!

as someone who takes a lot of pictures in world, i honestly rely on the creativity of all the talented pose makers out there on the grid to help me make my snapshots look the best they can. it doesn’t matter how nice an outfit of mine looks.. if i’m not using the right poses to show it off or compliment it, then i’m just not doing my job!

so having a whole event filled to the brim with poses, and only poses (from over *100* brands, no less!), makes an amateur photographer like me all kinds of giddy~

04.12.2012

all of the poses i used in my pics for today, including the cup o’ coffee (that i could seriously go for in my rl right now…), will be new && out @ pose fair this year from glitterati. i practically live on coffee, i am a certified caffeine junkie, so these poses were totally made for me.

i’m also showing off some more of my haul from collabor88 — this cowl-neck sweater is from kyoot, the vintage cigarette holder is from the sea hole (and actually comes with earrings and a bracelet as a set!) && the pretty black ‘n’ white bracelet is just one of many color choices offered by earthstones. and since i was already in mostly monochrome, i decided to pair it all with a *mesh* black and gray skirt i picked up from cold logic, some gartered socks from league (which are some of my favorite stockings in my inventory), a gray purse from toki doki && a pair of saddle shoes from coco.

nothing goes better with black than white… nothing goes better than coffee with a cig (especially in the mornings, whoo boy)… and nothing goes better than vixxie and new poses! there’s just a few more days until pose fair starts && i cannot waaaaaiiiiiit!! \o/

cross

it’s april fool’s day, hm?

not gonna lie, i was tempted to do a joke here on my blog… buuuuut i have too much awesomeness to show off. there’s no time for jokes when there’s new clothes to be had!

04.01.2012

like, for instance, this *mesh* tee which is new out @ sakide. and just as a head’s up!! while i’m wearing a black one here, there are several sets in pink, red && purple out for free — but only until tonight @ midnight! these tees are awesome.. they fit well, are off the shoulder (which makes them good for layering, like i’ve done here, with a tank underneath), and come in a shit ton of patterns. the crosses are my own personal favorite, but there’s something for everyone.. including plain, no design tees!

go snag ’em *all* for free while you can!

04.01.2012

also.. these sneaker boots i’m wearing, which are all kinds of delicious, are just 99L on the marketplace. they are *mesh*, they are color-change, they come in several different sizes (including a non-rigged pair that you can resize!) && were such a good deal for the price. the same store has some mesh lowtop sneaks as well as some mesh hoodies for both sexes… and all are the same 99L price. lots of options are included and i am so, so glad i found them. hello, new favorite sneakers~ ❤

free t-shirts, inexpensive mesh shoes… i promise you, it’s not a prank. 😉 it’s just the awesome creators on the grid being super duper generous && i for one appreciate it so much!

in the desert

..you can’t remember your name, ’cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain. laa la lalalala lalaalaa laaaa laaa~

this song is *really* before my time, but i still love it. and my look for today, paired with the in-world location i found to snap my bloggy pics, made me immediately think of it. so *old school* jam with me! \m/

02.26.2012

…not that my look has much to do with being in a desert, but.. y’know. ;P at least my location does!

i broke out a couple older items i found in my inventory purge about a month ago. it’s a never-ending cycle, trying to keep my inventory sorted.. with how much of a *shopaholic* i am, it can very very easily get out of hand. i mean, i was all pumped && excited about getting my inventory number way down, and during the process of boxing/deleting.. i went and fatpack’d a new skin. *facepalm* but! i’m proud to say i’ve kept my number.. manageable.. since then. and i’ve been more determined than ever to get some use out of the older items i decided were worth keeping!

the boots i’m wearing, as well as the vest, are things i’ve had in my inventory for quite a while now. the boots are an older group gift from coco (they are still available too, for freeeee!) && the vest is from niniko.. and both of which i decided to keep because i like them so much. i mean, i bought this vest when you could only wear one of each clothing layers at a time… so having a fully sculpted vest, without any sort of jacket/shirt glitch layer, was a really nice find. i could wear it even if my undershirt, shirt && jacket layers were already taken! still, the textures && the prim work on this vest, even after all this time, make it a nice addition to my sl-closet… and i still love the way it fits!

02.26.2012

so with the older, i’m wearing some newer stuffs, too! the top i’m wearing here, which is actually a *super* sexy cut-out dress, is new from nestle my bosom. the skirt is mesh && is part of a *15L* hunt going on right now @ ricielli. both the chest tattoo, and the ink on my arms, are also newer releases from vestigium — which is quickly becoming my go-to place for black tattoo sleeves.

i know sometimes we bloggers get.. caught up in all the new releases out there. or at least, i know i certainly do! there’s always so much new && so much awesome on the grid at any given time that you can kiiiiinda forget what you already own. but i think it’s good sometimes to break out the things you still like, that aren’t exactly fresh off the shelves && work it nicely in with things that came out more recently. breathe new life and versatility into the things you already own! \o/

lil bit boho

long, to-the-floor skirts aren’t *typically* my thing. i tend to like my skirts on the shorter side of the spectrum. short enough to show some leg, but not so short to show absolutely everything (if you catch my drift, ahem). but of course, tastes can change.. and in trying out something i didn’t think i’d like at first, i actually ended up falling in loooove~

02.21.2012

it’s a wonder how mesh can change your opinion on a garment, hmm? ;p

the skirt i’m wearing is indeed mesh && it’s from sakide.. and i am so in love. i really like the shape of the skirt, the length of it (cause it’s not all the way down to the floor, it hits just above the ankle!), and how nicely it moves. it comes in a bunch of colors if black isn’t your first choice (the light pink version of this skirt is *so* cute!) and could totally work for a more dressed up sort of look, as well as a bit more casual like i’ve styled it here.

02.21.2012

the top i’ve got on… which is out @ collabro88 from kyoot, i thought fit *perfectly* with the look i was going for. it’s cropped, it’s pretty, and i love the cut-out details on the collar. a full length top might have been too much… a li’l too covered up. but the shorter hem on the top actually shows some skin && makes the skirt look very.. boho to me. boho in all black, of course, but still lovely && feminine all the same!

a wide belt, from nyte ‘n’ day, some bronze && black accessories from league and amorous, a *gorgeous* wavy hair style that was out for stumblebum last round (that i totally derped on and forgot to blog while it was on sale… facepalm) from truth && some ankle boots from maitreya complete the look. kinda simple, but i really like the way it turned out! and i’m really, really glad i gave this skirt a chance. pieces you didn’t think you’d like originally can surprise you sometimes, in very.. very good ways!
