bundled up

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


…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.


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!

happy sashimi

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


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. 😉


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~

soooo… what happens when you’re just hangin’ out with a friend? maybe standin’ around on a platform, just chit chattin’ about nothing in particular?

well, when said friend is *vixxie*.. you inevitably end up taking pics for her to blog, that’s what happens.


braden daines probably had no clue that eventually, he’d be listening to my orders && posing for me while i snap away… but ahh, such is the life of one of my friends. 😉

he and i really had no theme this time, i just decided to photograph what we both were wearin’ at the time. and luckily for me, braden always looks good enough to eat (ahem).


i thought we both just looked… everyday. casual wear at its finest. and considering i gave braden no warning that i would be takin’ his piccy today… he looks pretty damn good, i havta say~ like the boy can actually dress himself or something!

he also seems to be about as big of a brand whore as i am — his jeans are from entente, his *gorgeously* long hair is exile, his piercings are from hod (and i wonder who gave him the recommendation to look there for piercings? hmmmmm..) && his super sexy tie is mandala. nothing exceptionally new, but nice nonetheless!

plus is it just me, or is braden channeling some serious skrillex inspiration with his look today?


but while braden was all shades of gray, i on the other hand… am rockin’ some yellow pants!

tank top, jeans, boots.. and my usual ink && piercings… i’d say this kind of look is pretty much what i’ve got on the vast majority of the time. i do indeed parade around in whatever look i’ve blogged for the day, because it *is* in fact my look of the day.. but when i’m not blogging, when i’m not photographing, && when i’m just *hangin’ out*, this kind of look is what i’m typically in. nothin’ fancy, just somethin’ simple.

the life of a blogger *might* be all about the opportunity to snap some pics, and this includes unwitting friends as well…


…but considering my choices in *everyday wear*, it definitely isn’t all glam (lol, like my blog is ever glam to begin with) after the “camera” shuts off!

you lock me up inside your dirty cage
well i’m alone inside my mind

ah, sales… how i love thee..

click to see it larger @ flickr!

lots of the items i’m wearing today were discounted heavily either through an event or through a sale && it’s a beautiful thing!

the latest store that i’ve heard of to be having a *huge* sale is ricielli — all the clothing, shoes, && accessories are all marked down to just 50L. there’s lots of high-fashiony goodness there at a nice, steep discount && i went the other night (with bff vivi!) and snagged several things for super cheap.. including the top, necklace and belt i’m wearing here in this look. i also grabbed a couple jackets, some jeans, a handbag, and a dress… because… well. why the hell not? x3

click to see it larger @ flickr!

the jeans i’m wearing here, in all their bright red glory, are from willow out @ collabor88.. so you know these were discounted too, down to *88L*. since it’s the end of the month (and! trivia for you! today is justin timberlake‘s birthday! xD just in case you wanted to know~ *fangirl scream*), that means the collection will be rollin’ over in about a week or so.. and i made one last pass through to grab a few last minute things from the offerings in this round. i love the color on these pants, it’s a pinkish red and so vibrant that it made for a nice *pop* of color in the sea of black && gray jeans in my inventory.

and even better discounts? the skully scarf i’m wearing was *freeeeeee* from emery (it’s on a board in the middle of all the new releases and is part of a holiday gift of freebies && cheapies, so i dunno how much longer it’ll be there!) && the black fingerless gloves were a dollarbie from hermony.

sale prices make me go all squealy — if there’s a sale somewhere on the grid, you *know* i’ll be all over it. all of the clothing i’m wearing, and a good portion of the extras i’ve got on too, were snagged for a lovely discount. and making an entire look work, down to even matching accessories, with just sale goodies is a glorious thing!

santa’s li’l helpers

it’s the day before christmas eve && i am *sure* santa could use all the help he can get! it’s probably hectic up there at the north pole with all the elves runnin’ around, trying to get absolutely everything done before the big day. do you think he’d let bff vivi && i help out?


we’re obviously christmas-ready and willing to help in any way we can! i mean, nothing says “i’m here to help~” like fluffy white fur, short skirts && red panties… amirite? ;p

and lucky for us, there are a lot of christmasy freebies on the grid this year.. y’know.. to aid in makin’ us feel festive. vivienne && i are wearing a bunch of freebies from various stores in both of our holiday looks, in case you’re needin’ a xmas-outfit-on-a-budget.


the short dress && hat with horns that vivi is wearing are both group gifts from epic. i always rave about the items from epic because they’re *always* nicely made && adorable, but joining the vip group is totes worth the fee. there’s a bunch of gifties for group members under the tree in the front of the store, vivi’s outfit included, and will pretty much dress you head-to-toe in christmas goodness in no time flat!

another good group to join is the group for vinyl cafe. the fee to join is tiny && the group gifts are frequent and generous. the boots i’m wearing here are a past group gift, that actually came with a bolero, dress && ear muffs as well. the *mesh* santa hat i’ve got on is a past group gift from insufferable dastard — yet another group with plentiful monthly gifts. the set of hats came in a bunch of colors, and each color came in plain, striped && patterned versions, and since it’s mesh.. means it fit perfectly right out of my inventory! another freebie i’m wearing, the holiday light string ’round my neck, is a hunt prize from blah. it comes with a couple static poses and isn’t so much a necklace of lights as it is a .. noose… of lights. but! it’s fitting for the time of year, at least? xD

oh, and the nose ring i’ve got on? *also* a freebie! it’s a hunt prize from hod so you know how excited it makes me. it’s not exactly super christmasy, but it’s freeeeee and it’s hod. you should go snag it while you can, because i said so.

*and!* there’s lots of holiday cheapies && full outfits out at sakide, which is where my panties and jacket set is from, and they’re all conveniently located in one building outside the main store. my outfit actually comes with a lot more pieces than just the two i’ve got on and there’s a ton of other christmas-y bits and pieces out at sakide. there are more costume-type outfits, or just cute separates that are fitting for the holiday in decoration or in color, and for the price you pay… it’s like one-stop shopping for holiday attire~

so there’s no excuse not to look festive if you’re celebrating christmas this year! freebies, cheapies && gifts galore out there on the grid. and who knows, the more christmasy you look.. perhaps santa will let you help him out, too! ;D

shorts in the winter

long cozy sweater + leggings and shorts… is totally winter attire, right?

click to see it larger @ flickr!

in my head it is, anyway~ ;p

i’ve got a lot of shorts stashed away in my inventory, so i was trying to figure out a way to wear them when it’s not actually sweltering && hot outside. shorts, or even mini skirts, work quite well in the winter when you have a nice selection of leggings to pick from. and lucky for me, there is no shortage of leggings on the grid this winter. *o*

the pair of leggings i’m wearing today are from sakide && add just a li’l bit of punk to my otherwise sweet ‘n’ innocent look. if you’ve read my blog before, you know i prefer my jeans to be ripped to shreds.. so these, with their cut-out knees, were perfect to *mess up* my look a tad. plus they come in a pack including the white i’ve got on, as well as a black pair && a red pair, which means even moooarrrr leggings to layer underneath my shorts. \o/

click to see it larger @ flickr!

the *freakin’ adorable* hairstyle i’m wearing is from wasabi pills, which is so good at super cute hair, and is mesh. i love the billowy waves, and the color-change hair barrette.. but there’s actually a bow included as well that attaches in the exact same spot as the hair clip for even more cute. and the fact that it’s mesh just makes it that much better — no sinking into my shoulders, no fiddling with trying to get the bang pieces to fit in just the right spot, no messing up the way the hair looks by moving bits and pieces around my ears. it’s perfect right out of the box && i love mesh hair for that!

and do you see this gorgeous skin i’ve got on? it’s from pink fuel, which is by *far* by favorite brand for skins, and was only 10L for a pack of two. hunt prize at pink fuel means i was there so fast && this skin did not disappoint. you get “naughty” and “nice” makeup choices (the one i’m wearing is the more subdued “nice” version, the “naughty” makeup is a darker, more intense version of the same eye/lip) && it’s a li’l sneak peek at the new alyx skin which i am sooooo excited to be fully released. the elly skin, which has almost been glued to my shape since i bought it over the summer, has been my go-to skin… i love the makeup, i love the face, i love all the lip tattoos… but i am so pumped to see the range of makeup for alyx, i can barely contain myself. and the hunt prize skin is stunning!

if you like pf as much as i do, this skin is a definite must-have… and don’t worry, this hunt prize is super easy to find! which is a serious good thing, ’cause the more time i spend looking around in pink fuel… the more my linden balance seems to “magically” dwindle. i mean, the older ember skinline has been reduced in price && there are several makeups in that skin that i don’t own yet… cute accessories.. shoulder pets.. @__@!…

winter wonderland

my “inspiration” for a look usually comes from one or two pieces that i then dress around. an accessory, a pair of killer shoes, a new top.. something new in my inventory that i’ve not yet showcased on my blog, then i simply dress to match it. but i’ve *never* dressed to fit a location in world… until now.

the north pole display @ atrum complexo is stunning && i’m so glad that the beautiful gogo showed it off on her blog.. or else i never would’ve known it existed. so thanks for that! ❤❤

it’s wonderfully wintery, with lots of snow-frosted trees && a square with a few shops and a big christmas tree right in the center. i popped in to check it out && was immediately inspired to create a look fitting for taking a sleigh ride and browsing li’l stores all while the snow is falling.

heels.. probably not the most practical shoes for trudgin’ around in the snow, but cut me some slack, mmkay? ;p

it all starts with the mesh barn jacket i picked up from jane. mesh is slowly becoming more && more prevalent on the grid these days, something that makes my insides giddy, but i gotta say… for as nicely as the pieces in mesh that i own from jane are, and for the detail && work that must go into them.. they are incredibly well-priced. i’ve got a few mesh pieces floatin’ around in my inventory that were probably more expensive than the should’ve been. but all the mesh goodies from jane? *150L*. yeah, it’s ridonkulous.

even more ridonkulous is the tank top i’m wearing underneath the brown jacket. it’s also from jane && it was *free*. free! what makes it better still is the fact that you get about a billion colors — enough to honestly never need another tank in your slife (haha, yeah right.. i buy tank tops like they’re goin’ outta style, but y’know..) — aaaaaaaaaaand there’s another pack of rompers in a similar amount of colors for free as well. all the designers are coming out with some great cold weather pieces with sweaters && cardigans && coats.. if you need some pieces perfect for layering, these freebie packs are amazing for that!

and for serious, how cute are these leg warmers? they’re from g field, as are the heels i’m wearing underneath them, and i *adore* the big poofeh pompoms hanging off the sides. they’re specially made to fit over a few select pairs of g field’s shoes, but they come in several sizes to try and accommodate all the different shapes out there.. and maybe with a little adjusting, you could fit these over other brand’s shoes. i’m not fully sure as i’ve not tried yet, but some of my favorite heels are from g field.. so i had no troubles at all with getting these warmers to fit juuust right.

plus, i love the way leg warmers + heels looks. and with as many color choices as these come in, i can *totally* see myself accessorizing throughout winter with these leg warmers.

so go throw on your own barn jacket && leg warmers and roam around the north pole. it’s gorgeous && full of lots of cute things to do and see. i was there all by myself, so i didn’t hop on the sleigh-for-two and just sight see after i was done snappin’ photos, but it would be an adorable place to go visit with a loved one. or a bff, ’cause i am eventually gonna drag vivi there && bombard her with all things christmas. teehee~

for the last several posts, i’ve had girly hair. cute updos, long && curly, ponytails, headbands, braids… if it’s feminine, i’ve been wearing it.

so for the past few days in world, i’ve been feelin’ the *butch* hair for a change. shaved sides, lots’a spikes, super short. don’t get me wrong, i like the whole girly thing. i can rock it just as well as the next chick. but i’m not always a girly-girl. i can grunge it up && punk it out every once in a while when it comes to hair!

click to see it larger @ flickr!

my entire look today was built around my hair. raw house is fast becoming a favorite of mine for spikes && streaks. *tons* of stores sell softer hair, styles that are sweet and lovely and … y’know… all wispy tendrils and shit. but the hair i like from raw house is on the total opposite side of the spectrum from that && i am lovin’ it (bada ba ba bahh).

plus, okay, i know it’s really shallow of me but hellooooooo hotties in the vendor ads. having attractive avatars in the vendors *totally* makes me wanna buy just ’cause. and i am a sucker for guys in that body co skin … mmmh. /me is tempted to lick the picture….

plurk is just.. so awesome sometimes (and not just cause i’m on it addmeokaythanks), because *two* of the items i’m wearing are from suggestions i got from plurk friends.

first, is the skin. it is a group gift from chain and vine — a brand i sadly hadn’t heard of before. but thanks to harlow heslop, i am now in *love* with this face. i know, i know.. i did go a little nutty with the makeup tattoos on top of it, but you’ll just have to join the group && snag the skin yourself to see what it looks like sans eye shadow/lipstick. it’s gorgeous though, you won’t be disappointed. and, best part about it? it comes in an entire range of skin tones! \o/

and my sneakers. i plurk’d, asking about new sneakers.. and aly warwillow suggested 2real. and what a suggestion it was, these sneakers are freakin’ killer. absolutely every li’l bit of these shoes are texture change via hud, a nice && easy to use hud at that, with a slew of different fabrics from plain to patterned. definitely worth the price, ’cause you get.. like… eleventy billion options all in one shoe. options = love && i enjoy customizing the hell out of an outfit.

besides, just clicking textures and picking parts of the shoe to colorize was fun. i could’ve been in my skybox for *days* making myself 32482348 new pairs of shoes. weeeeee~

gatcha gatcha

the gatcha festival @ albero is open again && i have been soooo looking forward to it. i picked up so many adorable things last year (and discovered a lot of new stores, too!), so when i saw on flickr that it was reopening.. i was super excited to visit again and throw my lindens into the machines.

lots of awesome stuffs this year \o/ and i packed on many of my new goodies for my look today~

click to see it larger @ flickr!

let’s see… my earrings, necklace, ring… shoes, anklet && tank are *all* from the gatcha festival. and yaayz for me, i seem to have fairly decent luck when it comes to gatchas because all of the items i got seemed to go together pretty well. at least, i think so~ ;p

the tank, which is by teefy, i actually bought many of. not trying to get any color in particular, but just because… cute, inexpensive tanks? helloooooo, i need you. they come with the chest prim && prim ruffles too for the shoulders that i decided not to wear… simply because my feather earrings and the extra ruffles didn’t seem to get along very well. and i *love* these earrings; i have a thing for feather earrings. and feather earrings that were 25L a try from fri.day make me love them even more. especially since the pair i’m wearing are one of the rare colors!

click to see it larger @ flickr!

i’m *also* wearing some freebies today, too! the hair && hat combo is from the latest subscribo gift by lelutka and ooomgah. loves. ❤❤ the gift comes with an entire ensemble too, but this haaaaaair. how adorable, right?! it comes in a nice selection of colors, one of which is my preferred shade of blonde (winning!), and the fact that it’s free just makes it that much better. plus, there’s a fatpack of hair as a gift when you join the subscribo.. if you’re like me && never joined it for whatever reason. dunno how or why i missed that, but yay for more new hair!

and the piercings are free too, from ni.ju. the other day, bff vivi && i were stalking the lucky chairs at the mainstore, the letters switch out often and several of the boards have wings as prizes. pretty, colorful wings. i have an entire wardrobe of wings now thanks to vitani jun. ;D but this freebie is actually set out @ a newly opened mall location and where ever there are free piercings… i will be there. they are cute && were really easy to fit.. and did i mention they were freeeeeeeeee?!

now, while i’m pleased with my haul from the gatchas… there are still a pair of rainbow twine shoes from fir & mna with my name on it. so if you’ll ‘scuse me, i’ll be in hyssop.. tossing lindens into the gatcha until it gives me the shoes i want! /me shakes a fist
