vixxie has returned~

did you miss me? ;p

it’s a shame how “real” life can get in the way of things, isn’t it? i cannot explain fully in words how truly hectic things were for me this last week. and i feel bad, y’know, ’cause when things get busy in first life… second life takes the back burner. ;( and i missed it! a lot more than i ought to have.

but that was last week! this… is … well, obviously, this week. && i am *freeeeeeeeeeeeee* \o/ free to blog!

here’s hopin’ i’m not rusty. *cracks knuckles*

9.27.2010

my look for today (or technically.. yesterday, as it is after midnight for me atm) is relatively simple. i thought it would be best to do something niiii~iiice and easy for my triumphant return. ease back into blogging 8D

so i built my outfit around my dress, that i’m actually wearing as a top more than a minidress, && it’s from candydoll. the saying, yeah, it amused me.. and rebeca dembo *spoils* her customers when it comes to color choice. there’s a ton of colors to pick from, ranging from dark colors to lighter ones, but white was my favorite.

the leggings i’m wearing are by kyoot and were, when i bought them, at the dressing room. since i’ve been MIA from second life for a week, i’m gonna wager a guess && say that these leggings aren’t still there ;/ but if they are then yay! they are really, really cute. leggings are a staple in my sl-wardrobe (if you couldn’t tell, aha.. i wear them in this blog all the time) so when i come across new ones, i may or may not do a little dance o’ victory. these have nice waistband && pocket details on them and i love how smooth they look. like i’ve been sewed into them they’re so tight!

9.27.2010

accessories today are from hod that i know i blogged already, but be prepared to see them frequently here. aha. i love the quality in both the piercings && the necklace and the design isn’t bad either. 😉 it should be no surprise though, aydan darcy always delivers when it comes to amazingness.

and speaking of amazingness \o/ my tattoo is *new* from para designs. now i usually prefer colored ink to simple black (which is why i’m currently wearing the color version of the new tatt), but i gotta say.. the black version of this tattoo blew me away. it has an almost gradient look to it, very unique, and thankfully i’m wearing short sleeves so you can see the design. flowers and butterflies! totally girly and *so* cute. <33

a nice look, amirite, to come back to blogging with! hopefully i can get back into the routine of blogging daily (or every other day at least!), because it's so enjoyable for me. and after a week like this last one i had? having something enjoyable to look forward to everyday… oh it is so needed.

one good thing, though, about taking a hiatus for a week…. i now have *lots* of sexy blogs to read && catch up on. i know i’ve missed out on a lot! new shopping list, here i come ;3

saturday awesomesauce

i have much awesomeness to show you (and you gotta know it’s sweet for me to post *twice* in one day!), so i’m not even gonna waste time with an intro.

pretend i wrote something witty 😉 and check this out!

HOD/para designs

new piercings, new *fabulous* tattoo && new necklace… from two of my absolute favorite stores! both released today and both reduced me to a pile of “sdkfsjdfhdf”.

so first! the tattoo. it is from para designs && is an amped up version of a tatt set out the other day for free. the design is deliciously dark, but brightly colored, and as always comes on every layer possible for easier wearing && in colored and black versions. and the fact that it’s *discounted* right now for super bargain saturday makes this a fantastic deal. if you love para designs like i do, you neeeeeeed this ink! srsly ❤

now, the piercings && necklace… both are from hod. i honestly think aydan darcy can do no wrong when it comes to making jewelry. and she is always generous with the options!

on the left: the crow’s crux in silver lining w/ feathers
on the right: the crow’s crux in slide

the piercings come in lovely textures, of which i’m only showing two. and there’s two separate piercings: one with feathers in the mouth && one without. i am *such* a sucker for septum rings && these, with the attached cross, make this set sooo amazing.

and the necklace…

HOD/para designs
please click to see it larger!
from left to right: the crosary in v1, v2, v3 && v4

even more options! \o/ the crosary comes with several different ways to wear it. version one is just the necklace, with the crow’s skull && beak at the end. version two includes extra ropes at the neck. versions three and four have razors attached to the extra ropes, either bloody (version four) or not (version three). there’s even the ropes with and without the razors as a separate attachment, to layer with other necklaces. this = big thumbs up from vixxie~

two posts today from me is totally warranted, especially since my ink is discounted only until midnight tonight && the necklaces and piercings were just released today. if you’re heading across the grid to pick up the hod goodies, they are available only at the *new* satellite store on the zombie popcorn sim. you know i’ll hook you up with the right slurls, but since it’s in a new location.. i thought i’d give a head’s up. ;3

cozy

this week’s fifty linden friday sale was full of *win*. cute top from surf couture, a new sleeve tattoo from katatonik \o/, cute tees… jeans…

and my favorite item of my entire FLF haul: this cardigan from reek. it’s cute in the red version, but this pretty tan… unf~ <333

9.18.2010

sweaters like this just look like autumn to me. especially in a color like this, a soft && warm beige. it’s a nice neutral so it works with practically *anything*, as i’m showing here. brown, shades of green green and some black thrown in for good measure.. it all works (or at least, i think it does ;p) and looks so nice and warm!

the jeans i’m wearing are from ricielli — i bought so many goodies from the sale there! i loved the pattern on these and the *color* specifically, i don’t already own a pair in this silvery, minty green and snagged these up quick. plus, they’re low cut but not so low cut that they give you plumber’s crack.. which seems to be an ongoing thing with jeans. don’t get me wrong, i can rock that look 😉 but sometimes, i don’t want my ass hangin’ out. it’s cold, damnit! my buttcheeks need to stay warm too.

and! the tank i’m wearing in brown from onyx wear is only gonna run you one linden. there are dollarbies dotted all over the store && this top is one of ’em. i *highly* recommend popping over there for some awesome stuff, jeans and tees and skirts.. lots of nice separates. you’re welcome. ^_~

9.18.2010

my tattoo is a past freebie from para designs. it was only set out for free for one day ;( and i totally should’ve blogged it sooner. i’m not 100% sure if it’s up for sale now that it’s no longer free, but if it *is* for sale.. it’s absolutely worth going to pick it up! the design is awesome across the entire midsection && was the perfect tattoo for this look. that part of my chest was the only bare skin exposed to show off a tatt! aha~

the belt i’m wearing is *new* from moloko. i have such a hard time with belts and i’m not sure why. fitting them can be a task sometimes, they either fit the width of my waist *or* fit around my hips.. though often, not both. ;/ this belt however fit almost perfectly right out of the box. \o/ and not only that! the entire thing is color- and texture-change. the leather on the belt, the color of the studs, there’s a ribbon on the back (that i didn’t photograph, my bad!) along with some cute buttons && other danglies… almost everything is customizable. i love that. it makes matching (or purposely mismatching) so easy to do.

is it wrong that i look forward to 50L friday every week? >.> rocking friday, too. they make tgif mean even more than it already does, but when designers set out fantabulous goodies like they did this week? it’s practically *orgasmic*.

twisted, pink && kawaii

there always seems to be a shit ton of hunts going on in second life at any given time. and i, as a seasoned hunter ;), and appreciative of this! not only do you get some *awesome* goodies for free, but it also help broaden one’s shopping horizons. some of my current favorite shops, i discovered while doing hunts in the past! \o/

so i recruited bff vivi to help me show off a few goodies from three of the hunts going on at the moment: the twisted hunt, think pink && the kawaii hunt.

9.13.2010

all three hunts are sprinkled over our avatars in various ways. but the majority of our outfits (including our skins!) are freebie hunt prizes. there are some amazing items to be found on all three of these hunts, so let’s get started!

9.13.2010

vivienne is rockin’ quite a few gifts from the think pink hunt. her skin (that is absolutely stunning) is the prize from mynerva. it has brown brows && such a sweet face, with pretty berry-pink makeup. her top is from black & blue outfitters and she paired it with the skirt-half of the prize from paper doll, the necklace we both picked up from iced and some pink-accented piercings from ipoke.

her ballerina flats are the kawaii hunt prize from scribble and are so cute. there’s a little button detail right by the toes! the tote bag she’s wearing, filled to the brim with mushrooms (she must be hungry..) is the prize from love soul. and her tattoo sleeves are from nightshade, which was a nice surprise. i wasn’t expecting some ink from nightshade, but this tatt is adorable. cobwebs, hearts, bats && stars… all the things a girl loves. ;B

and the twisted hunt is represented by the ears vivi is wearing, from shitz n giggles. i know her hair obscures them a little bit, but they are *amazing*. lots of piercings, tons of detail.. they are so worth the frustration in finding them. i can’t give you a hint unfortunately, but if you like elf ears like vivienne && i do.. you’ll definitely want to snatch these up!

9.13.2010

i on the other hand am wearing more of the twisted hunt than the other two. the dress, that i *absolutely* adore, is the prize from sassy kitty. it comes in a bunch of layers && a non-bloody version too, but i really like the ribcage design. thankfully, the whole ‘bloody’ theme seemed to run through the twisted hunt frequently, so it was easy to match my dress with the battered boots from fatal error && the rings and nails from virtual insanity. the prize from virtual insanity is really generous too, just as a head’s up. the piercings i’m wearing were included, but there’s a backpack, earrings && necklace in the gift as well!

my skin is also from the think pink hunt, but from the starting location: candydoll. it should be no surprise that i love candydoll skins and rebeca dembo always gives out awesome, quality skins as hunt prizes. bubblegum pink lips && eyeshadow, compared with the gorgeous body candydoll skins have… love it~ plus it’s in my favorite skintone of hers too, win!

and the kawaii hunt… the leggings i’m wearing are the gift from izumiya. they come in a *fatpack* of colors, so it’s not just gray you get in the package. on tons of layers, too! which makes mixin’ && matchin’ so much easier <33

we both finished our looks with some non-hunt stuffs, including new hair from truth, a tattoo (on me!) from para designs that’s an awesome new release, and a set of nails (on vivi!) from love soul. but as you can see, most of both of our outfits are made up of hunt prizes. and there’s lots more we’re not showing you. it’s perfectly plausible to dress yourself from hair to shoes in quality freebies… if you have the patience to finish these hunts, that is. ;D

rawr~

my look for today is on animal print overload && i am… totally okay with that!

i know i warned yesterday that my blog would most likely be filled with ricielli stuffs for at least a little while and i wasn’t lying. 😉 my animal print all starts with my pink ‘n gray, high-waist skirt that i picked up from their sale~

9.11.2010

i fucking *love it*. not only is the skirt hot, but it comes with some extras i wasn’t even expecting! \o/ the waistline is a prim piece that adds just that extra, small detail of realism. and the belt was included as well, which was a very nice surprise. the texture, the details, the super sexy way this skirt accentuates my curves… seriously, i’m a sucker for high-waist skirts && pants, but this print makes it even more awesome!

so i paired the skirt with a sheer top by has been. sexy skirt + sexy top = sexy all around, aha. but this top, though it’s sheer, is still modest enough to keep the goods decently covered. and the adorable cuffs && collar add just enough femininity to make it *cute* as well as hot. a little frill goes a long way with me, but touches of it can turn a plain sheer shirt into something more interesting. plus it makes my boobs look great && helps show off my tattoo (more on that later!), so i can’t really complain. :3

9.11.2010

so since i was already wearing animal print, i decided that more animal print couldn’t hurt. the bangles i’ve got on are by glow studio && i snagged ’em for extra-cheap at the dressing room blue. leopard print in brown and gray, plus a little zebra thrown in for good measure.. it’s definitely not *subtle* but i’m not covered head-to-toe in it. accents are good, even if the accents are large && shiny bangles.

my nails && rings are actually a set i *totally* forgot i owned. which is so sad, ’cause i love these! rediscovering items in your inventory can be so exciting sometimes~ the bling’d out nails are from luxg and i adore the huge gemstone ring included. each nail is even painted differently (and if you look closely, a couple are zebra print :D) and all of them are studded with rhinestones. they also include an animation built in to try and help prevent the annoying hand-spreading that seemingly happens at random. for someone like me who practically lives in prim nails, this is such a life saver. i don’t have to worry about my nails going outta whack, YAY!

and now, my tattoo. it is from, by far, my favorite tattoo shop *evar*. para designs has this tattoo, called venom set out for super bargain saturday. and it is so, so worth it. you have to go pick it up! it comes on every layer imaginable, including 2.0 tattoo layers, and while it’s only in black.. it does come in light, medium && dark shades. paranormal putzo does such fantastic work on tattoos (as i’ve previously gushed) and every release keeps getting more and more perfect. i love how the design scrawls across the chest with this tatt and hell~ooo.. it’s discounted for one day only. go get it, nooowww! >;O

animal print, ripped up leggings, heels so high it’s a wonder how i can keep my balance && awesome new ink…. for very late friday night into saturday, i’d say it’s pretty appropriate. now all i need is a party to hit up and a cosmo in my hand and i’ll be set.

sales!

it seems like there have been so many sales in recent weeks. not that i’m complaining or anything cause… fashion is awesome, but *discounted* fashion is even better! \o/ and ricielli is the latest store i’ve heard of having a huge 50% off sale…

so naturally, i went && proceeded to buy one of everything! wee~

9.10.2010

i can guarantee that in the next few days, my blog is gonna be filled to the brim with goodies i snagged from the sale at ricielli, so be forewarned! and my *fierce* 80’s-inspired, gold studded jacket in today’s look is from said sale.

the detail on this jacket is phenomenal, i looooove the hyper-pointy shoulders. everything i’ve bought in the past (and everything i bought today, mweheh) is of exceptional quality && this jacket is tailored so nicely with lovely prim work. it was easy to fit, too, which is always nice. sometimes i have trouble with jackets that include prim lapels, just because they are usually fitted on a model with a.. ahem… larger chest than i’ve got. but this fit almost perfectly right out of the box!

my top is actually a dress that i just… decided to wear as a long, low cut, zippered top instead of as a mini dress. either way, it’s pretty cute. it’s from vextra fashion, which is a new brand to me, but this dress is totally my style. and just as a head’s up, the red version of this dress? so super hot. 😉

9.10.2010

the boots i’m wearing are.. mmm mmm mmm, so delicious. they are from sini style && knee-high boots period are always sexy. these however are covered in belts ‘n buckles and actually come with a thicker stacked heel (i’m wearing the optional shoe base that turns the lower part into a platform), which make them *that* much more awesome. they look like kickin’ ass sorta boots, don’t they?

and my hair…. ah, good old truth never seems to disappoint. every single week, his releases just get better && better. there has yet to be a release where i haven’t found a hair i love, though typically.. there’s two or three (or in the case of last week? all six!) that i’ll adore. this week, the hair i’m wearing today is by far my favorite. even though you can’t see it, ’cause i made it invisible for this look ;3, there’s a little color-change tie that’s right by the neck in the front. and the streaks… just… unf. streaks + truth = insta-love for vixxie. ❤

add in, probably, my favorite makeup on a skin ever from laq, a few accessories from love soul && loulou&co, and just a peek of the tattoo i’m wearing from aitui… while i may be channeling some hardcore 80’s with my shoulder pads, my look for today totally gives off the i may be tiny, but i can totally kick your face in sorta vibe. 😉

house of munster

…makes *awesome* hair.

why haven’t i heard of this brand before the hair fair?! am i living under a rock or something? ’cause the hair from HOM that i blogged the other day && the hair i am wearing in today’s look both are from house of munster and are probably on the top of my list of faves i snagged at the fair.

so cuuuute~

9.08.2010

every single part of it is color-change. the hair itself, the little bow, the bangs, the coontails.. *everything*. i chose blue to match my top && picked pink because… i like pink :B, but there is no shortage of color options. plus the cut is cute and i dunno, house of munster is new to me but it’s awesome and i am so sad i’ve not taken advantage of this brand of hair before!??!

so because, of course, i dressed around my awesome hair.. i decided to sorta run with the whole *striped* theme and put on a top i picked up from black & blue outfitters a little while ago during one of those… day-of-the-week specific sales. coulda been thirsty thursday or maybe hump day happiness, i don’t honestly remember. but i really like the shirt and the color is a bright, vibrant blue.

and! just as a head’s up~ the pants i’m wearing are actually shorts (sans the prim cuffs that came with them) and are a *freebie* from the hair fair. i know, right.. i sorta went shorts from the *hair* fair? too, but there’s a hair included in the gift, too. though i think it’s a hair designed for males, i couldn’t get it to look quite right on my avatar. but the shorts are worth it alone for the ladies. i really like them ❤

9.08.2010

my necklace is a freebie too from the hair fair, haha. but it came with some cute cupcake hats too and that’s hair related! the jewelry was just an extra bonus. you can pick it up at the milestone creations stall, which i’ll link to (as always!) in my styling credits. *all* the things i snag at the hair fair will be linked to the specific booth it’s from, just to save you time. you’re welcome. 😉

the bright pop o’ orange on my wrist is thanks to a cute paper watch i got out of a gatcha from the sale at creators pavilion. while i think the sale is over (sadface), i am hoping the watch is still up for sale at aramode.. because it’s adorable. it came in a bunch of colors && i actually like the contrasting mango-color with this look. plus, y’know, i was already bright thanks to my hair. what’s a little more color gonna hurt?

i still haven’t totally scoured all the booths && freebies at the hair fair, which is totally alright with me. it gives me something to do when i get bored and none of my friends are on to pester. \o/ i also want to blog showing off my fayse shapes (in case you aren’t sick of hearing about them yet ;)), there are a couple of hunts i want to blog with bff vivi….. so much blogging, so little time to do so! @_@

….and maaaaaaaaybe a tiara… and very little else. 😉

sometimes, i get what i like to call outfit block. it’s kinda like writer’s block (though i never seem to have that, haha.. have you *seen* the way i tend to ramble on?), but with… clothing instead. sure, there are things i should blog.. things i’ve been meaning to blog… things i want to blog.. but when it comes to putting together a look, nothing ends up the way i want it && it is so frustrating!

but then! other times, someone saves me. like the awesome paranormal putzo of para designs, who dropped this *amazing* tattoo in on me. it should be no surprise that tattoos make me all tingly in places that really shouldn’t be tingly for ink.. but when it comes to tats from para designs specifically, there is little else that could make me more giddy~ \o/

so instead of giving you a full-on outfit, i’m showing off my bits… *and* the new tattoo set out for super bargain saturday which technically doesn’t start for another couple hours as of writing this. but the tattoo is worth the wait, check it out!

9.04.2010
please click to see it larger!

this tattoo, called summer’s end comes in *all* layers — including the v2.0 tattoo layer && gloves as well, for extra vines on the hands. there are two versions, in black and in color, and each version has a light, medium and dark option. in the photo above, i’m wearing both the black && color tattoos in the darkest versions, but light and medium work very nice for a faded-out, worn ink look.

the design is so pretty. lots of vines && leaves crawl all over the body. it’s sexy and yet it’s still cute and it’s *so* nicely made. every tattoo i’ve ever bought from para designs has been awesome (which would account for the fact that i have 75% of the store tucked away in my inventory) && this one is of the quality i’ve come to know.

plus, it’s *discounted* for saturday only.. so i suggest you hurry your sexy li’l butt over and pick it up. ;3

start wearing purple

there are some colors i wear *all* the time (cough black coughcough), but there are others that i rarely wear. and for whatever reason, purple is a rarity for me.

it’s not like i don’t enjoy purple, either. it’s the color of my birthstone <3, it’s one of my best rl friend’s favorite colors… hell, purple is even a color associated with royalty && nobility. so wtf gives? i can’t honestly say.. but! this is my ode to wearing purple, i put on the violet just for you~ 😉

plus that song… makes me go xD irl. lmfao.

8.31.2010

the bulk of my purple is thanks to this gorgeous corset from fk virtues. i wear a lot of corsets, both in world && in this blog, because.. well. i loves them. but these corsets from fk virtues, which yes i have blogged in the past in a different color, are by far my favorites. the texture is delicious and the colors are so vibrant and lovely. and the detail on the back, complete with a prim bow attachment (not worn), i think these corsets are some of the nicest on the grid.

not only that, but it’s such a beautiful shade of purple~ hopping out of my norm to wear this color? not so hard when it’s as pretty as it is.

8.31.2010

the pericings i’m wearing are from loulou&co and amused me greatly. i may not be the most vain avatar out there, but i can say the so hot message underneath my nicely glossed lips (thanks to the *NEW* elly skin from pink fuel that i am in looooooveeeee with~) is definitely fitting. ehe.

and my tattoos…. one, the sleeves that are free from actchio, adds a little extra pop o’ subtle purple to the look. but the second tattoo, across my clavicle, is actually… *ahem*… from fayse. it’s something i’ve been working on, a series of song lyric tattoos scattered over the body (currently, i’ve made ones for the shoulderblades, abdomen, hips, lower back and obviously, the collarbone), but they aren’t released just yet. soon though! \o/ i’m excited!

of course, once they are fully released, i’ll blog all about it. ;3 *and* offer a freebie && cheapie to boot! woohoooooo ❤

i know i’ve mentioned it like a billion times, but music really helps with the blogging process. and i’m the kinda person that finds a song && it just gets *stuck* on repeat.

the song i’ve been listening to (and am currently listening to!) is by phoenix && i am so obsessed with it. so you couuulldd say today’s post.. sponsored by lisztomania. \o/

on with the look!

every couple of weeks, i get so pumped for new stuff at the dressing room. i know i always post about sales, discounts, gifts, freebies && cheapies… but TDR && TDR blue are like the mecca of discounts. so many fantastic designers and quality items set out for ridiculously low prices.

and today, my look features several things i’ve picked up from the dressing room collections!

the top i’m wearing is by fishy strawberry from TDR and at first, i sorta thought the design on the front was a ribcage (which, honestly, is why i bought it.. ehe) but it’s.. actually not. i’m not sure *what* exactly the design is supposed to be, lulz, but the top itself is really cute! the part across the boobies is actually a prim, giving a lot of depth to what could be a flat clothing-layer only. and plus, you could technically cam down my shirt with the prim piece on. y’know, if you wanted to. 😉

my eyes && lashes too are from TDR, by glam affair and glow studio. glow studio always has lots of goodies set out and these lashes are delicious. they were *so* easy to fit (and lashes are one of the things i have most trouble with ;/) and i love how dramatic, but realistic, they look.

and the eyes.. oh goodness. it’s no secret that my eye color of choice is blue, but my *favorite* color for eyes is icy, frosty, so-light-it’s-almost-white sorta blue. like fiona apple blue and these eyes from glam affair are that exactly. <333

my piercings today are a *new* release from hod. the lovely adyan darcy just keeps releasing more && more amazing jewelry and these piercings… i want to hump them. the set i’m wearing is called bump in the night (loooooove the name, too!) and even though my hair is covering it, there’s four eyebrow rings included in the set, too. there are two other, different piercing sets out as well and an exclusive fatpack of all three right here if you’re interested~

the bracelets i’m wearing, along with my cute orange nails, are from my mall-mates edge grafica && pulcino. the bracelets are *free* and the nails are from a 5L gatcha, both incredibly good deals and very nicely made. i love the safety pin detail on the bracelets and… really.. i think i own *all* of pulcino’s glove-layer nails. i’m a sucker for nails, both prim & glove versions, and when they are cheap and well-made.. it’s like a nailgasm for me.

plus, they’re both in the same mall my new store fayse is currently set up. support for the designers with good taste in location is a plus, hmmm? ;D
