flamingo

don’t mind me, i’m just lounging around today..

10.13.2012

suppose i needed to recover from the nekkidness of yesterday. ;P

so i slipped into a comfy (and still pretty!) tank top from red mint && these cozy mesh socks from intrigue co (out @ collabor88) that are totally adorbs and called it a day.

10.13.2012

my hair for today is actually a *freebie*(!!) from magika — two colors of this faint hairstyle, the orange-dipped style i’m wearing here && another tipped in red, are available to subscribo members free for halloween! this straight bang’d style, complete with long curly q strands falling over the shoulders, is one of my favorite releases to date from magika.. so i may have squee’d a li’l when i saw these out for the grabbing.

and because i cannot resist accessorizing even a little bit, i tried on this *new* necklace from amorous and totally fell in love… this orange color is gorgeous, all the metal bits ‘n’ pieces are color change (ranging from dark silver to a deep bronze to a shiny black), and all the details on this piece are just perfection.

i may be recovering from a bout of outfit block, and still not quite fully covered here, but at least i’m not subjecting everyone to my bare boobies again! bwahahah~

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

dressed

sometimes, a girl just needs a dress…

05.11.2012

..or two.

i am *not* the girliest girl, not by a long shot, but i can appreciate a dress every now && then. my taste in dresses is usually less.. ruffly and “lady like” and, rather, more… well.. less is more. so i decided to put together two looks for today, built around two short mesh dresses i’ve picked up this last week in world.

05.11.2012

the first is from paper doll, which is out for stumblebum this round. it’s skin tight, *just* short enough, and comes in some lovely color choices.. including this fading white-to-pink one i chose to wear here. li’l dresses like this are perrrr~fect for the upcoming warmer months && look just as nice with a pair of high heeled pumps as it would with, say… a pair of wedge sandals and some sunglasses. plus since it’s stumblebum, that means it’s *discounted* (25% off, to be exact!)… which always makes dress shopping that much more enjoyable~

05.11.2012

and speaking of discounts… this month’s round of collabor88 rolled over a few days ago. collabor88 is one of my *favorite* sales events and this month’s collection really bowled me over. there were so many cute things there this go ’round, it was honestly a li’l overwhelming! but i *did* manage to snag a few things amidst my bewilderment, including this dress i’m wearing here, from boom. which, tbph, is actually labeled as a long, baggy t-shirt… but to me? it looks like an adorable cotton minidress.. and worked rather well that way (but remember to wear panties, i’m *just* sayin’! ;)).

the earrings i’m wearing in both looks are also out @ collabor88, from intrigue co. the dangly charms are shaped like unicorns… unicorns(!!).. and come in sets that were made to mix && match colors. i probably didn’t pick the perfect hairstyle to show these earrings off (but i could not resist wearing this insanely cute style from ploom that i grabbed at culture shock), so you’ll just have to take my word for it. oooorrrr go try the earrings yourself to see! really, really cute.. and i did mention they were unicorns, right? because they are! unicorns!

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.

sent to destroy

05.03.2012

glam affair, tableau vivant && haus of darcy have *all* released new collections… new skins, new mesh items and new piercings.

i’ve been loving the last glam affair release, leah, tableau vivant is my own personal favorite for male skins (if i had a malt? he’d totally be wearing tableau vivant skins), and haus of darcy… well… i’m not sure i even have to say how much i love && adore hod’s piercings. ❤❤

so i recruited my friend allarik, who was just as excited about these releases as i was, to show off a few things… mainly, the new tableau vivant skin && a whole slew of new hod piercings. \o/

05.03.2012

the skin he’s wearing, called ryan, is absolutely gorgeous. allarik already was a pretty li’l thing, but this skin is so… smooth and so perfect that it was a nice upgrade. tableau vivant skins have an.. androgynous look to them sometimes && that’s something i *really* like. it’s different than the whole ruggedly hairy, chiseled jawlines and super-human-buff bodies that guy skins can have.. and i think this new skin looks fantastically sexy on allarik’s shape.

and the piercings he’s wearing… allarik has on the dragon spiral ear gauges (which are an older release) && the spiked & dermaled chest piercing in all of the snapshots in the collage above… as well as tv piercing 1 (first && third pic), tv piercing 3 (second pic) && tv piercing 5 (last pic).

05.03.2012

this release for hod was massive && the selection is amaaaaazing. there are so many variations on facial, ear and body piercings that allarik && i had a hard time deciding which ones to show off here. and since hod is by *far* my favorite for body jewelry, i felt like a li’l kid in a candy store when i was looking at them all.

the ones i chose to showcase are… in all of the pics above, i’m wearing the downward spiral gauges in my ears, as well as tv piercing 10 (first && last pic, which includes the facial piercings as well as the chest piece), tv piercing 4 (second pic) && tv piercing 13 (third pic – also includes the eye makeup tattoo i’m wearing, by nuuna!).

there are even more pieces to the new hod collection that allarik && i aren’t wearing here.. you can see all of aydan darcy‘s hard work (and the full haus of darcy collection) here on flickr.. and drool over it all as i did. piercings range from simplistic to anything but && all of them are absolutely wonderful.

or, really, the new collection from all three brands are absolutely wonderful. collaborations like this make me giddy.. and give me so many new things to try and need in my inventory *right the fuck now*. if you’ve not gone to check the new collections out, you reeeeeally should. if your taste is anything like mine, i promise you won’t be disappointed!

04.30.2012
please click to see it larger @ flickr!

the gorgeous mesh gown (by sakide), the *amazing* antlers (by ni.ju) && the floaty li’l butterfly that still photographs just do not do justice (from epic) are the items i’m wearing here from the faire — but there is so much more to buy and see. the builds are wonderful, there are so many designers offering goodies, and it is all for a fantabulous cause. it does not get much better than that!

if you haven’t visited (or you like leaving this ’til the last moment like me!), then you should go… riiiiiiight now… and see all there is to see at fantasy faire. but you need to hurry, as i said the event ends later on today!

pose fair!

yayyy!! pose fair is *officially* open! \o/

the amount of work put into pose fair this year is absolutely astounding. the build is wonderful, but simple, and there are so many booths… and so many exclusives to take advantage of.

i’ll be showing off single poses i’ve grabbed from pose fair while the event is going on, but for the opening.. i thought it fitting to snag one of my favorite props 😉 ❤ to pose with me for a few pictures of just a small sampling of couple poses.

and believe me, this *is* just a handful of the poses out for pose fair. the choice really is awesome. so many brands — some of my own personal favorites && some new-to-me brands too — all in one place! it’s the sort of fair that you should take the time to wander around and demo everything, you never know what kind of awesome stuffs you’ll find!

but with that said, onto the pics! i’ll be including slurls to each specific booth at pose fair for the brands i’m featuring here, but at the bottom there will be a list of all the participating stores && slurls to their booths too, for easier browsing!

stellar

as i’ve said in the past, i usually build the looks i blog around *one* specific item. there’s typically an article of clothing, an accessory, a hairstyle, a tattoo… something that inspires the looks i post. and today, my very gogo dancer look is all centered around some suuuuper sparkly mesh boots that are *new* from stellar.

04.14.2012

over-the-knee, high heeled, zippered && wonderfully shiny boots! \o/

the smallest size fit me *perfectly* without having to adjust my shape, which is always a plus imho, and i love every last one of those hundreds and hundreds of sequins. makes ’em unique && different from the many (many…. many many) pairs of boots i own.

04.14.2012

and it’s almost as if the lovely eboni khan of hucci *knew* that i needed somethin’ short and somethin’ sexy to wear with these boots. this mesh tank dress was sent out freeeeeeee to hucci subscribo members and was totally made to be worn with thigh-high boots. i love the cut, the low neckline, and it’s *just* short enough to be sexy without baring it all. plus the pattern is cute! and i *did* mention it was free, right? ;D

a thick-chained necklace from mandala, fingerless gloves from hermony && my go-to for fishnets from blowpop completed my look. a li’l “edgier” than a 70’s gogo dancer, but i really like it! what’s not to like about sparkly boots && a short dress, amirite?

happy sashimi

is that sushi in your pocket or are you just happy sashimi?

04.09.2012

i cannot even begin to describe how much amusement this t-shirt has given me. yes, it’s true, i *may* be easily amused.. but… come on! it made you giggle too, riiiiight? don’t lie!

it’s part of a pack of three out @ [a] limited — i grabbed the set of sushi t-shirts, but there’s toast and cupcakes and cookies and milk and… all sorts of other adorable designs should sushi not be your taste. you get all three of one set together, as well as a long tee (like i’m wearing here) and a cropped version too for the price. and since summer is honestly right around the corner… stocking up on t-shirts is never a bad idea. 😉

04.09.2012

another round of collabor88 is up for the month and of course, bff vivi && i were excited to go see all the items offered. some of our favorite items include an umbrella shaped seat (that we used as a floatie in the water outside our house, *so* cute!) from lisp, the capris i’m wearing here from kyoot, and the eiffel tower-shaped earrings i have on by intrigue co. not everything was out, though, when we went… but at least that gives us another excuse to browse again~

and my hair — i am sure it has been *all over* the feeds as of yet, but if you haven’t heard… the hair i’m wearing here is a *freebie* from truth. yes, i said freebie! it’s in the subscribo notices if you didn’t get it the first time it was sent out… and you get the entire fat pack of colors, both with roots and without. the rubber bands are all color-change and this double-banded pigtail style is just… over-the-top cuteness. truth hair makes my insides happy every single time there’s a new release, but i gotta say.. i about *exploded* with glee when i realized the usual notice about new styles included a gift, too. it was a very happy surprise!

happy sashimi, freebie *truth* hair, some collabor88 newness… my inventory may be bursting with new things (and yes, i unpacked every single color in the truth gift!), but i’ll let the inflated number slide in favor of awesome new goodies~

maitreya mesh

so it seems that… the things i get most excited about these days are mesh releases from my favorite brands. even though mesh went grid-wide last summer, it’s still *new* and exciting and i’m still sort of getting a feel for the types of mesh clothing, accessories && hair that i prefer. some things, i like better in regular ole prims && sculpties.. while some other things, i definitely like better in mesh.

with every release of new mesh goodies, i’m seeing things get better and better. and the latest release of mesh stuffs from maitreya had bff vivi && i *so* excited to demo (and buy.. *cough*).

03.27.2012

skirts, leggings, boots, jeans… there was lots of awesome released! i went practically *insane* over the new mesh jeans, while vivi had her eye on the leggings (since she picked up the similar pair out @ the epoch event) and skirts. but we both came out of maitreya happily with our respective purchases && put together two looks to show ’em all off!

03.27.2012

the jeans… hnnngghh! are just wonderful. i love the colors they come in, i love the zipper detail on the cuffs, and i *really* love the way my ass looks in the jeans. that’s an important part of purchasing jeans, in any life, and the ones from maitreya do not disappoint in the booty department. 😉 i still seem to have a larger leg gap than normal with these jeans too, just like i had with the mon tissu pair, but in all honesty… the more i wear mesh jeans, from either brand, the less i care about the “dreaded” thigh gap. for me, personally, it’s not as bad as it could be && does not make me love these jeans (or the mon tissu pair) any less.

03.27.2012

vivienne was immediately drawn to the bright *hot pink* color in these leggings (i wonder if, perhaps, i’m rubbing off on her? ;p), so she decided to go all over pink by pairing the maitreya leggings and skirt with a top she grabbed from celoe in a matching shade. and with the addition of white slink ankle boots, the blocks of crisp white and contrasting vibrant color looks very.. 80s to me && i *like* that, a lot. she was able to layer the leggings and skirt together by wearing one size smaller in the leggings than she normally would, but wearing her normal size in the skirt, and they worked together nicely without any strange clipping.

we both completed our looks with mesh hair, too — hers from magika and mine, from exile — and some accessories from love soul, amorous (which is having a 50% off *sale* right now!) && mandala.

kinda casual, but springy && meshy outfits for today! if you’ve not gone && demo’d the hell out of the new maitreya items, it’s worth it to try! and there’s a *free* gift set out for group members right by the room full of all the new releases — one of the mesh pencil skirts, in a lovely pattern, is the gift and is totally worth snagging while you can!
