hat

i have a hat.

10.03.2012

and it is awesome. :3

the newest releases from burley included this amazingly wavy hat-and-hair combo && i immediately fell in slooooooooove. the brushed-over bangs and this hat are just ridiculous amounts of awesome and i pretty much had to have it the moment i saw it.

so i put together an *urban casual* sort of look, befitting of my new hat~

10.03.2012

i’m even wearing *two* freebies with this look — one of which, the glasses, i snagged @ swag fest from epic. i love a good pair of glasses && these oversized frames were not only *1L*, but they’re also infinitely color-change. i liked the way the dark gray checks here matched with my sweater (by erratic, which is out for the new round of fameshed!), but i just as easily could’ve gone with red or yellow or piiink… a fully customizable cheapie like this is awesome!

the necklace i’m wearing is also a freebie — a group gift from the jewellery exchange. i spied this li’l panda around tesh’s neck on the free*style blog && immediately went to snag him. this panda is *adorable* and for a gift is very nicely made. and did i mention the group is free to join, too? and that there’s a few other gifts there for the taking? 😉

and, okay, i know they’re not freebies.. but these spiked boots from slink *need* a mention here. i love them. i want to lick siddean munro for making them. the detail on these is *fantastic* and i adore every last one of those spikes dotting the boot. grabbing these in black was a no-brainer but the other colors are just as hot, too… especially in deep pink. they are wonderful and are so worth demoing, i guarantee you’ll grab a pair too just like i did~

rainy days

with the turn of the seasons, my rl weather has been cold, gloomy and soaked with rain. watching it storm outside my real windows inspired me to bring all those chilly raindrops into the virtual world with me..

09.26.2012

i *love* the rain. the best weather for getting a good night’s sleep is when it is cool && rainy… and i really love listening to raindrops fall on the roof. but having to go out in it is a whole other story…

luckily, tea time released this set of mesh trench coats which were *perfect* for creating a rainy day kind of look in-world. i love the combo of this warm brown color with accents of deep red. the subtle pattern on the cut-outs on the side add a bit of interest && all the li’l details (the metal buckles, buttons, and belt at the waist) make this a really well-made piece.

09.26.2012

wearing a hat, with this red mint mesh hair && a gorgeously patterned umbrella from the sea hole completes my rainy day attire… and with those, i added in accents of a dark teal. these colors together — deep brown, crimson, teal and khaki — all look *so* nice together (at least, imho! ;P) and really look like autumn to me. more subdued colors, in richer tones, work so well for fall.. and, as a whole, i really like the way this look turned out!

shades of gray

not *fifty*, but just a few. ;P

09.23.2012

so! bff vivi && i raced to g field the other day when we saw these new beth ankle booties released. and we both, once we stopped drooling all over the demos, snagged ’em in gray and black. we could not resist playin’ dress up with them and thus… these looks were born.

these boots are *so* great for fall — which the weather for me in my rl is lookin’ more and more like autumn — and they’re designed to perfection. the laces, metal && soles are all color-change no matter which color of boot you pick up.. and the overall shape and texturing on these is just wonderful.

09.23.2012

the booties were also released with a set of floral-patterned tights (which are set out @ the ridiculously affordable price of just *50L* per color!) which vivienne is wearing here in the black-and-gray combo. and this look she put together here, with a longer tunic (from villena) and leggings and boots all works together in a trendy, but casual outfit. comfy, but still cute!

09.23.2012

i decided to take the boots in a different direction — dressing them “up” a little bit with lots o’ layers. a short-sleeved lace cami (from sn@tch) underneath a cropped mesh top i grabbed from ison… and i, too, am wearin’ tights (from izzie’s) with my shorter pencil-style skirt from mon tissu.

and, because we’re best friends && it’s just what we do, we’re both wearing pink and purple versions of the necklaces by maxi gossamer from the arcade gatcha event. mine was actually a gift from vivi (making it even more special, d’aww ❤) and provided not only a nice pop of color amidst all the black and gray, but also gives a best friends necklace effect.

and yes, you’re all welcome to “aawww~!” with me. ;D

mon tissu

so when i saw mon tissu was having a contest for bloggers, i could not resist throwing my hat into the ring…

Mon Tissu Blogger Search Entry - Vixxie Vultee

mon tissu is, hands down, one of my favorite brands on the grid. i wear their pieces in world && here on my blog *constantly* (i mean, just look right here!) because i adore this brand so much. everything released always has wonderful construction, lovely textures, and an innate style to them that make it so easy to put together a definitive *look*.

mixing && matching is one of my favorite things to do — take a piece from here, another piece from somewhere else, an accessory from yet another place and so on — and items from mon tissu have become a staple of mine in my virtual wardrobe for this. there are pieces i always search for in my inventory, clothing that i seem to fall back on because i like the fit or i like the look of it, and mon tissu’s releases rank right up there in my most searched for items.

Mon Tissu Blogger Search Entry - Vixxie Vultee

the look i put together for these pictures is simple and casual — something i think mon tissu does amazingly well. denim is, by far, one of the easiest things to wear in world && these shorts (as well as the loulou jeans and the newer mesh nora jeans) are my absolute favorites. and when paired with a cute tank, a jean jacket && a scarf (in a peach shade that mon tissu does *so* well), the look i have here is casual but cute… and works great for that *in between* weather right now where it’s not quite summer anymore and still not quite autumn, either.

having a wardrobe of well-made, cute, *simple* pieces makes changing outfits and making new ones that much easier… and some of the nicest i own are from mon tissu. i couldn’t resist at least taking the time to blather on about one of my favorite brands, beyond just entering the contest, so if you’ve not checked them out (and why the hell not?!).. then i honestly can recommend you do so! i’ve never been disappointed by anything i’ve purchased from mon tissu (and, actually, the contrary is quite true — every release gets better and better and makes me more excited each time) and this look here shows that whether it’s prim or mesh, mon tissu does it *very* very well~

kitty

when the collection @ the dressing room rolled over && new stuffs appeared, i knew i *had* to have this headband from la gyo

08.29.2012

not want, but neeeeeeeeeed. how cute, right?! jewels + kitty cat ears = so adorable, vixxie can’t even stand it. this band has been glued to my head for the last few days and i just could not wait to put together a look so i could blog them.

needless to say, i highly recommend you go grab these while they’re out and discounted!

08.29.2012

so i grabbed a cute pink sweater from mon tissu, a pair of the *new* mesh trousers from coldlogic (that are on sale, along with the rest of the store — but today is the *last day*!), and a bubblegum prop from pink fuel that i’ve been wanting forever and finally had an excuse to buy.. and put together a cute, casual outfit to match my new cat ears. i am seriously in love with this headband, but the rest of my look is pretty cute too i must say. ;p

and of course, the backdrop for my pics today is just as cute — after seeing juicy cafe on juicybomb, i knew i eventually had to visit to snap some photos. the build is delightfully cluttered && a wonderful setting for photographs, definitely take a tp there if you’ve not visited~

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~

double dose

/me gently wipes the cobwebs away

ohay! long time, no bloggity, hmm?

yeah, it’s been a really long while since i last posted… things just got *way* hectic for me in my rl. shit happens from time to time && i am def not immune to it. buuuuu~uuut, i did have some time this week to catch up on things in sl, so i thought i’d finally get off my lazy ass and put together a blog post!

and it’s not just me in this post, oh no. i’ve got two looks for you from myself and one of those includes bff vivi.. i thought it was a fitting way to maybe get back into the swing of blogging~

first…

06.05.2012

..a look i put together long before i took my hiatus. this makes me a very, very bad blogger && for that i apologize! i uploaded the pics of this look to flickr months and months ago… and then never put a post together for it. so here it is, finally!

06.05.2012

polar bear hoodie, shark tee, and some bright hot pink. do you love it as much as i do? ’cause i gotta say, i love this look lots. i grabbed the tee from retro when i discovered them on a hunt aaaages ago. these tees were cute (each one was a different color w/ different animal motifs) and nicely textured… and sometimes i just cannot resist the cute. yes, this shark is cute.. don’t try to tell him otherwise~

the hood is mesh && i grabbed it from nacon’s on the marketplace. while i don’t recommend wearing a fuzzy hood and scarf in the middle of summer, it’s sl.. so i can do what i want! ;P it worked for the cutesy sort of look i was goin’ for and, as i said.. cannot resist the cute sometimes. i like the dark, grungy, and evil just as much as the next girl but there’s that part of me the just cannot say no to something with teddy bear ears. don’t judge me.

and for a more “recent” look, i dragged bff vivi in with me to pose..

08.11.2012

you never really know how much you miss out on when you’re away from sl. sure, i knew designers and sales and events would be goin’ on without me.. but i didn’t realize just how much there would be for me to catch up on! @_@ it was only a couple of months && i feel like i’ve missed out on yeeeeeears of awesome goodies.

so she ‘n’ i hit up a few of our favorite stores, browsed several of the events going on, and tried our best not to be overwhelmed.

08.11.2012

vivi built her cute && casual look all around this mesh tee she picked up @ collabor88, from tres blah. it’s perfectly tucked into her jeans and looks like a slouchy v-neck she’d steal from her boyfriend (if he let her into his closet, that is..). she looks comfy and yet still put together~

she’s also wearing a pair of flared jeans from maitreya, some fiiierce leopard heels (that were a freebie group gift!) from n-core, and a super cute owl necklace that’s also from collabor88 by maxi gossamer~

08.11.2012

my look also centers around somethin’ i grabbed at collabor88, this time from auxiliary. this sugar skull design won me over completely, but all of the designs were awesome enough to pick up.. especially at the nicely discounted price of a mere 88L.

i paired the tank with some mesh shorts i picked up from mon tissu && a pair of gorgeous sandals from celoe — both of which are in nice, neutral shades. the shorts have a subtle pinstripe, making them more visually interesting than a simple pair of white denim shorts, and the shoes….. oh there are no words for these shoes other than love. the textures are realistic and delicious, tinting was a breeze && i instantly fell in love with this taupe shade. if only i had a pair of these irl, siiigh~

plus! the prop && poses vivi and i are using here, from glitterati, are on *sale* right now. everything is discounted to 100L and i went ‘n scooped up a whole bunch of things i’ve had my eye on, this prop included. i’m always on the lookout for new props and new poses, especially ones that are unique, and i’ve always liked this hallway prop. i’m glad i was able to grab it for an amazing deal!

sooo, three looks… and *maybe* a return to blogging for vixxie? we’ll have to see how rl treats me, but i’m hoping i’ll be able to get back into it! i miss my blog (and i miss those of you that read it ❤ honestly!) and i hate feeling like i’m out of the loop. so much new stuff to grab! @___@

bunny hood

with rl as busy as it has been lately, it seems the only times i can get a moment to myself to take pics for my bloggity here.. are on the weekends. no me gusta. i’m hoping my free time gets a bit more ample here soon, otherwise i am gonna go a li’l insane methinks.

but at least i always have retail therapy in sl to make it aaaaall better~

06.03.2012

bff vivi && i hit up a few places over the weekend… and we both about *died* over these new mesh hoodies from aura, which are out @ the new round of fameshed. there were so many colors to pick from and each one has an adorable hood complete with long bunny ears attached.. vivienne and i could not say no. she picked a pretty purple shade, while i went with black and lime green, and both are so super cute! looove these!

06.03.2012

vivi decided to pair her hoodie with some denim shorts, from mon tissu, and a hair she also picked up at fameshed by wasabi pills. it’s simple and it’s short, but it’s *so* cute. i like the over-the-eye bangs and the short, whispy ends make this style just adorable.. and of course, my bff is just too cute for words to begin with. ❤❤

06.03.2012

i’m wearing my version of the sweatshirt with a pair of rolled-up jeans from tres blah, some flats from ufo that i snagged @ collabor88, a *gorgeous* updo from exile that’s discounted at the dressing room blue && a *dollarbie* headband from monso that’s offered at the bombi event. there’s lots of goodies at bombi if you haven’t gone.. including an entire wall of lucky boards and gifts/cheapies dotted around in several of the designer’s stalls. plus the build is sooo cute and so are the rest of the items there. definitely worth checkin’ out, if for no other reason than to stalk those lucky boards — the version on the boards of this headband i’m wearing, i will have you!!

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

short shorts

one of my favorite pieces in my virtual wardrobe.. is a good pair of denim shorts. for the upcoming warmer months, nothing is easier to work with than a great pair of shorts. they match with pretty much anything you could think of, from tees to tanks to bikini tops, and denim cutoffs especially are a nice blend of cute, neutral && casual.

04.24.2012

this *new* pair of jean shorts i grabbed from izzie’s are so cute… and are just short enough, definitely not too short if you know what i mean! seeing them almost immediately made me think of summer sunshine, so i *had* to have ’em~

the belt is from izzie’s too && came in a pack that made it a steal. five different leather textures, two different metals, and it comes in versions with a resizer or without… all in mesh! \o/

04.24.2012

and speaking of mesh… i am *so* in love with the latest mesh releases from mon tissu. super cute halter dress, more denim shorts (yaaay! \o/), && the ruffle-hem tank i’m wearing here. soft, pretty colors with all those lovely details in every last ruffle… yum, i was sold on these tanks before i even got to demo.

i’m wearing the sheer version of the tank here (you get a normal version && a sheer version with each color), with another tank underneath (from sakide), for a more layered look… but honestly? the sheer version isn’t *so* sheer that i’d be flashin’ my tatas all over the place had i decided not to wear a second top underneath. i really like that, especially since the sheer version looks so delicate && light.. which was perfect for the look i was going for.

i broke out some pixelmode wedge sandals from last year && this dip-dyed ponytail from magika both to add a bit of pink… just because i could. ;p and i revisited a sim i snapped pics on in one of the first posts i wrote after getting my new, souped up computer. in fact, it was the first sim i dropped in on to take a pic with shadows enabled, period. nicely landscaped, with lots of green, and it’s the home to pivaaca, too — it made a lovely background for some springtime snapshots.

but it was hard, lemme tell ya, not to venture over into the store part of the sim && go shopping. ugh. #secondlifeproblems
