lazy

so! i’ve showed off my new bedroom already && today, i’m posing in part of my living room…

11.12.2012

bff vivi and i have been putting a few last finishing touches on our new home.. y’know, the little details that make things look more “lived in”. and since our living room is so huge (ie, there’s enough room for a full living room set while *still* leaving half the room undecorated), she and i decided to put down a cute dining room set… even though we don’t have a kitchen. ;P only in sl!

and so my look for today is very appropriate for lounging around my house, something comfy but still cute.. while i rez and re-rez candles and books and paintings and picture frames and flower pots.

11.12.2012

this cute cream-colored mesh top i’m wearing is *new* from sakide. there’s lots of new releases at sakide, all of which are awesome separates. ponchos(!), jeans, stockings, boots.. but these v-neck tees were probably my favorites out of the bunch. they are great for layering, which is something i *love* to do in autumn, but still season-appropriate enough on their own to totally work for fall. and i liked this khaki color for how versatile it is to work with!

i know it’s kiiinda hard to see, but check out my necklace! it’s *adorable* && is out @ collabor88 from intrigue co. little potted cactus plants, each dotted with small flowers.. how cute is that!? the set comes with a matching ring (that i *am* wearing here, even if i’m a derp and didn’t photograph it properly :/) and earrings, where each choice has different colored flower accents. so fun && so *cute*, i love accessories like these!

today was kind of a lazy day, i mean.. i didn’t even bother putting on shoes! but i still like this look for how real it is. i wouldn’t be moving furniture around in my rl in a skirt, heels and flowy top.. so i don’t do it in my sl, either~

cherry

i’m kind of… accidentally patriotic with my look for today. powder blue isn’t *typically* the shade one associates with the good ole red, white and blue.. but that ended up being my color scheme for the day~

11.03.2012

and it *all* started with this cherry print skirt.

i picked it up from teefy @ the new fameshed collection because… it’s cherries(!). this print is so cute and i love the way these skirts fit. high-waist skirts are always super sexy, especially when they’re nice and short like these are, but i chose to wear the skirt underneath a large ‘n’ comfy hoodie (from ispachi — this light blue color is wonderful!) for a more cute, casual look.

11.03.2012

these shoes from g field were *perfect* for this look… because while i grabbed the black pair, most of the shoe is totally customizable. the upper half, the toe, the sole && the laces are all texture change, so i was able to change my shoes to match my red && blue look. these shoes are fantastically made (as is everything from g field), and really nice for casual wear.. and the fact that i can match them to just about *anything* make these a great bargain.

the sim i photographed this look on is so cute! i spied it first on juicybomb and made a mental note to visit when i had a look appropriate enough for the sim. and i have to say, the build there is *really* creative. almost everything is animated — there’s a cute li’l fisherman sitting on a bridge over the water and a lady peeking out of the window in her home, for example — and it all looks like the hand-drawn style of art found in a children’s book. big poofy clouds, oversized butterflies.. there were even swans floating around in a pond. not only is this sim wonderful for photographs, but it’s also just so *adorable* for exploring. check it out if you’ve not, yet!

a queen && her minion

i’m (an evil) queen for a day..

10.26.2012

…complete with my very own minion!

this look was *all* for fun.. and inspired by these adorable plastic crowns @ collabor88 by laviere. i knew i had to do an evil fairy queen kind of look with this crown and my *petite* li’l friend here was more than willing to dress up with me. she seemed to think she was a teeny tiny princess, but alas… she is my minion instead! /me cackles maniacally….

10.26.2012

anyway!

this costume all started with the crown, but it really came together when i started playing around in my inventory. i got lucky with the halloween gatchas @ the depraved nation and was able to snag these super cute horns by chus in red… which matched this dress i’ve had for *ages* from katat0nik quite nicely. some freebie kiss-dotted stockings by sheer && a pair of color-change pumps from gos matched, too, and when i added the wings (because *every* evil fairy queen needs wings!) from epic and this wonderfully sparkly wand (because *every* evil queen needs a wand, too!) from love always.. this look suddenly became very evil-queenly indeed.

truth be told, i did most of the shopping for this look right in my own inventory. it’s a mixture of some older items && a few new ones, but i was really surprised how easy it came together. perhaps i was *meant* to be an evil queen.. like it’s kismet, y’know? i had most of the things to put together this look already, maybe i truly am an evil queen in disguise..

10.26.2012

erm. i am evil, i assure you. i *am*, i swear!!

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!

dark side

welcome to my dark side…

10.21.2012

…as if you’ve not seen it already. ;P

there’s *new* stuffs from some of my favorite brands && all of it is so perfect for halloween. or, y’know, everyday-wear if you’re me.

the skull-face tattoo && the multi-ring ear piercing i’m wearing above are new as a collab by nuuna’s and haus of darcy… and i cannot tell you how hard i fell for both. the piercing is partially mesh — the long spiked piece in my earlobe is mesh and awesome — and includes the facial tattoo in varying degrees of opacity for both men and women.

it’s available @ the fair event, the collection just rolled over to some really great new goodies, and if you’re anything like me.. you *need* this set. it is to die for (haw, no pun intended).

now, the skin i’m wearing underneath nuuna’s beautiful skull-face…

10.21.2012

…is just one of *many* released from glam affair. this appropriately named dark side collection features some beautiful makeups on a range of skins from dark and mysterious to light and haunting. and they are absolutely gorgeous.

10.21.2012

there’s two of glam affair’s most recent faces here — both ginny and roza. and each one is stunning. i could not pick a favorite out of these, each one is uniquely different. i love the full, dark red lips on one of the super pale skins, i love the stitched mouth on the darker gray skin, i love the two with bright pink blush dusted across the cheeks and eyes…

10.21.2012

these are wonderful for halloween looks (which you already know i’m a fan of!), but could just as easily work for a fantasy avatar.. or something decidedly goth. these sorts of skins are a big part of the reason why i’m such a fan of glam affair — aida ewing does soft and pretty so well, but also indulges the opposite side of the spectrum quite often. i adore the skins.

and when these skins are paired with aydan darcy‘s wonderful piercings && nuuna nitely‘s amazing makeup… it is a trifecta of fan-fucking-tastic.

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.. ~_~

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~

(more…)

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~

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
