good morning

giiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirl, it is *too* early in the morning right now in my area of the world. the sun is barely high enough in the sky to make it light out && yet here i am, awake. now, sometimes i don’t mind an early start to the day, but today… mmh, i dunno if i am feelin’ it yet. maybe i need a cup of coffee…

11.16.2012

…and, perhaps, a best friend to prance around in my underwears with.

cause, y’know, that’s the best thing to do at the buttcrack of dawn. ;P and luckily for us, there is a *hunt* going on right now to supply us with said underwears… free of charge~

the dirty pillows hunt started at the beginning of the month && bff vivi and i were pretty excited to tuck in to it. me, i was most excited for the fact that free lingerie is the best lingerie (considering out of all the categories of clothing there are in my virtual wardrobe, the smallest folder is for bras ‘n’ panties), but for vivi… she was excited because this hunt includes boobies.

11.16.2012

the grid has seemingly exploded lately with big ole titties. clothing ads, blog posts, flickr pics… it’s hard to miss ’em nowadays. and while i’ve always been happy with a smaller cup-size, vivienne on the other hand took the plunge and picked up a pair of lola’s prim breasts.

for what they are, they are *definitely* nicer than bumpin’ the sliders up to max. the shape, fit, and general appearance of vivi’s boobs look *awesome* (and i mean, really awesome) with these prim tatas on. and even though they are totally not for me, i can still see the appeal… both for wearing them yourself and having a more realistic larger bust && for having a li’l (heh, or not so li’l) something extra for your partner to ogle.

all the hunt prizes — including both sets of lingerie we’re wearing here — include appliers for prim breasts. and the best part is, even if you’re not the owner of some fabulously large boobies, you can *still* make use of the freebies just like i am. the hunt may be geared for the busty gals out there, but those of us in the ittie bitty titty committee can still hunt for some very nice lingerie for *freeeeee*!

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!

11.01.2012

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..

11.01.2012

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.

out for a stroll

10.22.2012

i really love how the entire grid seems to change with rl seasons… i’m seeing less && less bright green grass and more gorgeous fall foliage. and while i was on the warrumbungles sim (shopping, of course x3), i realized just how pretty the scenery was outside the store i was in. so naturally, i couldn’t resist taking a stroll down the cobblestone street and snapping my blog pics for today there.

and this windlight setting i used made the pretty trees behind me seem to glow, which was a wonderful effect. i rarely post process my blog pics here, the only thing i tend to do is mess a bit with brighness/contrast and sometimes smooth out jaggies on the avatar mesh, so the backdrop you see here is all in-viewer goodness. i used a windlight by elysium eilde (with a few tweaks for more cloud coverage in the sky) and it was absolutely perfect for painting a pretty autumn picture.

now onto my look…

10.22.2012

the skin i’m wearing today is from leafy.. and i’m honestly not sure why i’ve not given this brand a chance before. i *love* this face. these lips are perfection in shape and color && this skin tone i’m wearing here (called lumiel) worked so well with the freckle tattoos i wear all the time. it came with a pure, make-up free face which is ideal for layering your own favorite makeup tattoos on top, and a face with a simple black cat eye that i’m wearing. i honestly could not decide which skin to pick up first — i sat with about a billion demos in my inventory before i finally grabbed one — because there were lovely fantasy-type skins (paler and super dark tones with gorgeous makeups, then “out there” skin tones in shades of purple and green), halloween themed skins, and then more “normal” faces with in a range of everyday makeups. i settled on this sapphire skin for the moment, because i loved the way it looks on my shape, but as i said… no idea why i’ve not hoarded this skin brand before now.

the hair style i’m wearing here is *free* currently, in the exile subscribo, along with two more. i spotted them on kavar cleanslate‘s flickr before i got the notice && immediately went to snag ’em. and as i was unpacking, my jaw dropped. i was honestly expecting just three hair styles — the ones in the flickr pic in those specific hair colors — and was *floored* when i realized the gifts are actually fat packs. such a generous gift and so worth grabbing, especially if you’re like me and you picked up these hairstyles when they were @ tdr blue… but they didn’t come in your preferred hair color then. now, they most certainly do! :3

and lastly, this sweater i’m wearing here is out for a really nice discount @ my attic by dcny. this round of goodies is an awesome one — including *more* hair from exile && a super cute style by ploom, too — but these sweaters immediately caught my eye. for *95L* you get the sweater in your choice of colors and then two matching scarves that i’m not wearing here, one each to match the sweaters color-blocks. and amazing deal for really well-made mesh.. after you smack the exile subscribo, head to my attic for some more awesome bargains!

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.. ~_~

minty

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~
