bare

y’know…

when you’ve been blogging as long as i have (working on 3 years, now!), it’s really really easy to hit outfit block. like writer’s block or artist’s block, it just kinda hits at random and suddenly… nothing looks good together, nothing works for an outfit, nothing jumps out at you and clicks for a cohesive look. and after blogging almost daily for all this time (not counting the times i’ve had to take breaks, eh heh), that’s a whole lotta looks! and that’s a whole lotta posts! so naturally, i’ve *got* to hit outfit block every once in a while… right?

this is one of those times. i had a lot of stuff i wanted to show off here on my blog, but nothing i did looked quite right. so i’ve got the awesome stuff on and… very little else.

needless to say, these are nsfw. you’ve been warned~

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~

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!!

pink && green

new skin from pink fuel(!!!!!), new really amusing jewelry from amorous && a new *freebie!* piercing set from haus of darcy… seems as if these designers want me to *die* of happiness.

05.28.2012

i’m a li’l late when it comes to the skin addiction event, but when i saw there was a new pink fuel skin there.. just waiting for me to grab it.. i *knew* i had to go. and i am in loooooove. ❤ i love these lips, i love the two makeup choices (there’s scene, which i’m wearing here with dark eyes and glossy lips, and classic which has a less dramatic eye but has *perfect* red lips), i just love this face. i’m not sure which skin i like more, this alena skin or the alyx skin mochi milena has been teasing us with, but either way.. i *cannot* wait for the full release of either one! /me foams at the mouth

the necklace i’m wearing, from amorous… well. if you clickie that picture and make it larger, you’ll be able to see the message on the pendant. and i am sure you’ll fully understand why it amuses me so. 😉

05.28.2012

and let us not forget… freebie piercings from hod! the set of 4 omega nose gauges are *freeeeeeee* for the men only hunt, which started on the 26th && only runs for *two weeks*. while the prizes are more geared towards the guys, aydan darcy included both large && small sizes of these piercings to make ’em easier to fit on the ladies, too. which makes me so happy, because these bright, rainbowy colors are something you don’t normally find in hod’s already unique piercings… so the fact that i can wear these too is totally appreciated.

and they are completely free! all you gotta do is find ’em (so if you need a hint as to the prize location, check here and good luck!)~

up, up && away~

this latest round of stumblebum is so cute. the colors are perfect for summer: bright pink, cool cyan, lime green && a very juicy shade of orange. and with a theme of *insanity*, you can just tell the designers this round had lots of fun putting their items together.

05.18.2012

click to see them larger @ flickr!

these balloon poses, for instance, are from glitterati… and oh my god, i about died over these! how cute are they!? the balloon prop is color change and every single pose is just adorableness. what is *not* to love about flying around with a brightly colored balloon in your hand?

the tee, bracelets, mesh shorts, tank top && necklace i’m wearing above are also all stumblebum items.. from rezipsa loc, handverk, e! && dark mouse. the palette this round worked *so* nicely together — every single color reminds me of summery, fruity drinks or icy cold popsicles and, of course, i am such a sucker for that specific shade of bright pink.

colors like this just scream happiness.. it is hard to *not* smile when you surround yourself with such bright, vibrant hues. and balloons, too.. it is definitely hard not to smile when toting around a balloon on your finger. weeeee!

romantic

while searching for a pretty, spring-time sim to snap some pictures on, bff vivi && i stumbled upon a gorgeous place called calas galadhon. there were so many li’l spots to sneak a sweet, romantic moment (tandem bike rides.. a hot air balloon!).. and lots of places perfect for taking photographs.. that she and i *totally* felt the love in the air~

shame it was just with my best friend! ;P

05.09.2012

at least she and i looked pretty! ehe.

well, we always look pretty.. but still. ahah.

05.09.2012

vivienne and i both *really* loved the latest mesh releases from cold logic.. so much so that we both decided to wear tops from the newest set. hers, with the cut-out sleeves and low neckline, is in stunning shades of coraly pink, soft peach && pastel yellow.. all swirled together in a pattern that looks very much like it’s all been water marbled.

she paired the top with a pair of pastel mesh jeans from maitreya in the prettiest baby pink… as well as *two* grabs from the culture shock event — her hair, from exile && her shoes (which were freebies!) from g field. lovely in pink, with accents of yellow.. my bestie is covered head-to-toe in springtime shades and looking fabulous in it~

05.09.2012

i, too, was feelin’ the yellow for today.. only instead of pink, i liked the color contrast of this perfect bright blue with it. as i said, my top is from cold logic as well && i *loved* the way this layered top drapes at the waist. it’s flowy and feminine and this color combo really stood out to me.. all of which make for an adorable top that’s easily one of my favorites released thus far.

so i grabbed a pair of mesh white shorts from jane to match.. and a pair of platform sandals from slink, a golden tasseled necklace from glow studio (that’s discounted @ the dressing room blue!) && a soft, side-swept hairstyle from lelutka completed the look.

of course, i had a blast roaming the sim with my bff… but just look at how wonderfully built && landscaped it is. as cheesy as it sounds, it would be *perfect* for a sl date night… *hint hint*… but is just as lovely for some quiet exploration by yourself~
