november

ah, november… even though it is undeniably autumn now that halloween is over, and i’ve woken up every day recently in my rl to typical fall weather with cold winds && lotsa rain (damn you, hurricane sandy!), i wasn’t really feelin’ the whole bundled up sort of look for today.

11.01.2012

and it has a *lot* to do with these shoes. but i’ll get to that in a moment~

most of this look is made up of things i’ve had floatin’ around in my inventory for a li’l while, which is.. refreshing to do, sometimes. i know i talk a lot here about the black hole that is my virtual wardrobe and even though at the moment it is mostly organized, there still are things i rediscover in there that i forgot i had. it’s nice to go shopping in my own inventory && put together a “new” look with stuffs i’ve bought in the past. y’know, give them fresh new life and all that!

i grabbed this bra from sn@tch, during a recent sale. i *think* the sale has ended ( sorry, blogger fail ;( ) but this lingerie set was pretty and *leopard* and caught my eye. i picked up a few other things during that sale… as i do with most sales. can’t just buy one thing, right? ;P but i felt like blogging the lingerie without doing a *typical* lingerie post. because i’m sure the last thing ya’ll want to see is me in my panties, riiiiight?

so i threw on a blazer, because.. it’s classy, okay? and this one from house of fox is *super* cute. the shape is wonderful, i love the collar && the draping folds of fabric, and it showed just enough of the bra to appease me while still keeping me .. mostly .. covered up. i grabbed for these maitreya jeans to pair with the bra ‘n’ blazer, because honestly? they are probably my absolute favorite mesh jeans to date. they fit in such wonderful ways and the butt is fantastic.. and since i was already wearing some *new* maitreya goodies, i figured the jeans would be a perfect fit.

and yes, now will commence the gushing over these shoes..

hi, my name is vixxie, and i am in slove with these wedges. these are the *new* maitreya sandals called suave and they are amaaaaaaaaaazing. while i chose to wear ’em here with this look as solid black sandals, they actually come with a lot of options for customization.

the wedged heels come in four different texture choices (two are shown above) *and* these shoes can be worn with socks or without. the socks come in eleventy billion color options, too, which made me *squee* with joy. wedge sandals aren’t typical fall and winter footwear but these socks make them *awesome* for layering with leggings and jeans.

when i saw the ad on onyx leshelle‘s flickr i was honestly expecting the sock && no-sock versions to be separate… so imagine my glee when i realized they are all-in-one. and believe me, i agonized over which color to grab. i finally settled on this black pair, because you cannot go wrong with black, but the hot pink raspberry color && the deep red oxblood color also called my name… i have a feeling i will be *forced* to go back && pick them up, too.

maitreya’s mesh items are so fantastic and these shoes are no exception. expect to see them here often on my blog, because they will be *glued* to my feet for a while i’m sure.

show a little leg

09.27.2012

i’ve been doing a lot of editing of things in my sl lately… my inventory has been the main thing i’ve worked on (and *still* am working on! it is a never-ending process, i’m tellin’ you!), but i’ve been giving my personal shape a li’l bit of a tweak here and there recently as well.

my shape, over the years, has evolved a lot.. but i rarely tweak it for things most people tend to. i rarely, if ever, make changes to my shape for skins — if it doesn’t look good on my shape as-is, then i just don’t buy it. i like being “recognizable” (har har) in different skins, even if the appearance of my face can vary with one skin or another.. then at least the basic structure underneath is the same as always. i change things about my shape when i feel i need or want to && while this happens rarely, there are some significant changes to my current shape when compared to.. say.. the shape i wore when i first started blogging.

but the biggest change i’ve made as of late is to… my legs. they’re a little longer now, a little less muscled, and i personally think *ahem* that they look fantastic.

so i’m showin’ ’em off. ;p

in doing so, i put on something super short && paired it with some *new* sexy heels… because nothing looks better with a nice set of gams than a high heel, amirite?

the dress is from miel and i actually snagged it on a fifty linden friday a couple weeks ago. and, again, as things tend to do when my inventory is a mess… this dress got lost in the fray of folders until now. i *adore* this dolphin-print and the fact that it’s not only color-change, but the tube top underneath && the dress are color-change separately. made for some fun color combos while i was playing around with it!

and the shoes…

09.27.2012

they are mesh, they are glorious && they are new from onyx wear. there are so many choices for color — did you see that hot pink in the first pic? love it! — but each pair of heels comes with a ton of options. the heel, sole and insole are all texture-change and there’s quite a selection for nail colors as well.. one of my favorites being a panda manicure that is too cute for words. they were really easy to tint, too, && look *awesome* on.

new shoes, new dress… and some new legs, too? only in second life…

back to normal

so! back to normal posts, hm? no more lingerie (at least for a while, i’m suffering from underwear overload, for realsies), no more valentine’s day… back to more *regular ole vixxie*. and i for one am pumped!

i even broke out the elf ears, for the first time in a loooooong ass time. a couple years ago, my avatar was *never* without pointy ears. i wore them constantly && i loved them.. but just like with a lot of fads (i guess it was a fad? i don’t even know. a “phase” in my slife, i suppose would be more accurate), my love for all things elfin faded after a while. i got out of the habit of wearing them all the time && slowly but surely, my avatar was more human than elvish. i still like the elf ears though, and for the right sorta look they just.. fit. i can’t bring myself to box ’em up, even if i don’t wear them often, and this pair i got *ages* ago from pera are probably my favorites out of all the pairs i own.

my skin today is from pink fuel, which should really be no surprise. pf’s elly skin has been my go-to skin ever since it was released. i *love* mochi milena‘s skins — elly, then ember before it — and i cannot even begin to express how insanely excited i am for the face i’m wearing now, alyx, to be released. around christmas, there was a *tease* skin set out as a hunt prize.. and this one i’m wearing here is currently just *99L* (but i’m not sure for how long!! i *think* only ’til the 18th! so gooooo!) and i am in loooooove with it. the face is different than elly, but still as adorable as i’ve come to know from pink fuel, and i cannot wait for the skin to be fully released. i hope this li’l peek at the skin means the full release is coming soon, ’cause i am gonna *explode* without it.

/me starts foaming at the mouth

oh, and before i go all *crazed* talking about a new pf skin… lemme just say that this gray collared shirt i’m wearing here is a *freebie!* from sakide. it’s part of the very generous gift for the jack or jill hunt, which runs until the end of the month. there’s another version of the same shirt i’ve got on here, but in red, included in the prize.. as well as jeans, *mesh* ankle boots, and a hat to complete a very gangster girl sorta look. and i am really, really likin’ these shirts. it’s a nice mix of sorta masculine tailoring, but low-cut enough to still keep it feminine. and the fact that it is freeeeee just makes it that much more awesome! there’s lotsa good stores on the hunt list as well, so you’ve still got time go to a-huntin’ if you’ve not participated in it yet!

and while you’re out hunting, seriously, go grabby this skin from pink fuel. you will *not* be disappointed. it’s gooorgeous… and with it, you can be bouncing-off-the-walls excited for alyx’s full release with me!! \o/

irresistible force

i go through phases of loving the hell out of a song && listening to it nonstop on repeat. the other day it was bush && today it’s jane’s addiction. and i promise you, i *do* like artists for their actual music (i swear it!) and not just for the hot members of the band… but god damn dave navarro. such a pretty man, he is. *O* and his solo is pretty sweet in that song, too.

*ahem*

but before i get all hot ‘n’ bothered thinking about sexy guitar players.. why don’t i show you the look i’ve got for today. xD

01.07.2012

this look all started with the *super* cute denim jacket from tea time. i’m usually not a big fan of jean jackets, but this one wasn’t your typical washed-out denim. i love the colors, the striped inner lining, and all the delicious li’l details. you see those buttons on the lapel? adorable, right!? the turned up cuffs and the side pockets, too. and this jacket was in a hue i don’t own much of, which was nice for a change.

the leopard print eyeshadow (which oooomgah, i am so *in love* with!) is also from tea time — which is just one of many makeup tattoo layers available. i love nice tattoo makeup, it makes my skins that much more versatile. and while the skin i’m wearing already has a pretty soft blue eyeshadow, which is out for a *huge* discount @ the dressing room blue by atomic btw, i really liked how just a deeper, smokey eyeshadow completely changed the look of the skin. looks more night out with the leopard eyeshadow and it’s all thanks to *one* tattoo! \o/

i’m also wearing some newwww earrings from hod. these gauges srsly make my insides happy. @_@ i mean, hod jewelry *always* does, but these earrings… hnnnggh. ❤❤ the larger ring is always black, but there are several choices (in aydan’s fabulous selection of textures) for the smaller rings. the design is amazing && much more visually interesting than a simple large captive hoop. and of course, it’s in the quality i’ve always come to know from all the haus of darcy goodies i already own. it’s out *right now* for the zombie popcorn brand, slurl of which will be listed in the styling credits, so i hii~iighly suggest you go snag these~

but since i was already wearing earrings, i thought i might as well overdose on other accessories… putting on a *gorgeous* necklace && bracelet from amorous, and a set of nails and rings so packed with bits && bobs from wtg that it’s a wonder i can raise my hands. ;p look at all those beautiful li’l details on that cross pendant and it’s texture-change as well! — same with the varnish color on the nails i’m wearing. they totally work for the overall look i was going for, but the details on all of the jewelry i’m wearing — necklace, rings, earrings && piercings — are what really do it for me. makes you wanna alt-click && *zoom in* just to take it all in, riiiight? ;D
