virtual closet

keeping my virtual closet tamed is an arduous task. there are so many talented content creators out there on the grid these days that trying to limit myself seems… almost foolish. there’s too many awesome things out there to wear and to see and to *hoard* in my inventory, that calling myself a shopaholic..

09.21.2012

..is really an understatement.

if you remember not so long ago, i took on the job of organizing my inventory. at the time, in january, i’d whittled my inventory number down to a mere 21k. and it was *awesome*. i could easily find things, i had everything sorted in folders && subfolders, and i didn’t have the unnecessary clutter of older, unused items hanging around. they were boxed up or deleted and it was a beautiful thing!

i kept up with it for quite some time — making sure i immediately unboxed everything i bought && then organized it down into my inventory appropriately. i kept a folder of things i wanted to blog separate and, once i had blogged it, i moved it down into the rest of my inventory. but unfortunately…. the habit didn’t last.

a few “meh, i’ll do it later” excuses and suddenly… my inventory was out of control. my number steadily increased while the organization decreased. things piled up in my objects folder, everything was in disarray, and it was *really* hard to find items unless i searched for them by name. the longer i put it off, the worse it got, until it.. again… was a large task to undertake.

but! after getting completely tired of losing track of my stuff, i put on my big girl pants and tucked in to reorganizing. my inventory is, once more, a beautiful thing!

09.21.2012

while doing these clean-outs, i’ve discovered things (or re-discovered them, i suppose, is more accurate) i’d completely forgotten i had. like this panda necklace, for instance, from izzie’s.. i couldn’t tell you when i bought it, but it’s *adorable*. and i’m sad it got lost in the depths of my wardrobe for so long!

and older purchases are not the only things i found… this hooded jacket, from pumpkin, is a more recent acquisition. and i love it. i live in hoodies in my real life, and i could not say no to this pretty pink color, but. when i grabbed it, it quickly sunk into the mass of other folders and other items i’d bought and even though it was not long ago at *all*.. i totally forgot about it. but since my inventory is back in order, i found it && have been happily wearing it around in world for the last couple of days.

i even went so far as to make sure i organized things i bought in bulk. there is a sale going on right now @ elikatira where *everything* is an amazing 70% off. believe me, i went and splurged on *tons* of stuff — hair i’ve had my eye on, styles i already own but in different colors, shooooooes(!) — and as soon as a teleported back home? i made sure i opened things up and dragged them into their correct folders. because styles like the one i’m wearing here are far too cute to leave to the bottomless pit, right?

so! if you’ve been putting off organizing your own inventory like i was, let me kindly remind you to start now! i promise you’ll thank me later~

my (not so) peaceful morning

waking up early in the morning usually isn’t my thing. i’m more of a *night owl* myself && would much prefer to keep the sleeping schedule of a vampire rather than wake up at ungodly hours in the morning. but when i do get to sleep at a decent time and wake up bright ‘n’ early, i realize that mornings aren’t so bad after all…

04.25.2012

a nice hot shower, a cup of fresh coffee.. and a few moments to myself to enjoy the quiet really is a lovely thing. there are birds singing, waves rolling in on the beach just outside my window, && the soft glow of sunrise just barely peeking in the windows. it’s the epitome of serene.

or, well, it can be the epitome of serene… at least while sleeping beauty there stays in bed. luckily for me, lars will allow me to have a big whopping half hour to myself while he smacks the snooze button && gets in a few more winks.. so i can shower, dry my hair, and have a cup of coffee before he drags himself out of bed.

04.26.2012

but, to be fair, i *do* get some extra quiet time while he’s in the bathroom too. it’s funny how routines get started, and how they always seem to work like clockwork, because i can always get partially dressed && fiddle with my hair and makeup a li’l bit before he’s out of the shower. by the time i’m grabbing my shoes, he’s usually all squeaky clean.

and then suddenly, my peaceful morning is not quite so peaceful anymore.

04.26.2012

take this morning, for example. i’m stepping into my heels, feeling deliciously sexy in my new lingerie, and in comes lars from the bathroom…

“hey vix, lookit this! no hands!”

…how charming.

i tell him that must take *so* much talent to do… but because it is just a li’l annoying (and distracting), he finds it to be the most hilarious thing ever. i’m trying to figure out what i wanna wear for the day, and good ole lars takes it upon himself to cackle insanely && *dance around* the bedroom with his … towel.

04.26.2012

i can’t brush my hair, or even get to my vanity without him poppin’ up (no pun intended) next to me to wiggle the .. towel .. at me. i try to pretend i don’t care, that it doesn’t bother me, but he somehow knows it really does && it only fuels the fire that much more.

i mean, just *look* at him. he is obnoxiousness personified! stark naked save for that blasted simpsons towel, laughing and doing what can only be described as the worst dance in all of humanity… and he is having a blast while i just wanna put my clothes on, damnit!!

so in my infinite wisdom, i decide to think.. and think fast. what, exactly, would give me my beautifully peaceful morning back? what could i possibly do to distract lars in return, so i can finally finish getting ready? tell a white lie and say i made breakfast downstairs and when he leaves the bedroom, close && lock the door? ask him to get me another coffee refill and when he leaves the bedroom… close && lock the door? grab my own towel and whip his bare, annoying ass with it so he goes running out of the bedroom like a li’l wuss, then close && lock the door??

hmm..

04.26.2012

…or i could forget getting fully dressed, for just a while, and take him back to bed. which, to be perfectly honest, did not make my morning any more *peaceful*… but certainly more… ahem… fulfilling.

springtime pastels

to me, you just cannot have spring without a li’l bit of pretty pastel. it’s probably the fact that easter is spring, and easter usually means soft pink and baby blue and peach (and cadbury creme eggs!), but i always associate the beginning of spring with lighter colors.

03.15.2012

apparently, so does bff vivi!

we decided to girly it up today with colors befitting of this time of year… in some light green, lavender && lemon chiffon yellow~

as often as i wear bold, bright hues.. and as often as i wear all black, i can’t deny how lovely the lighter side of the spectrum can be… and how positively *feminine* you can feel while wearing them. there’s something undeniably… *ladylike* about wearing something that’s softer in color && it’s a nice change of pace for me. i don’t do the whole… ruffly fabrics && dainty colors thing a lot, in my first life or in my second life, so it was good to know i could.. if i wanted to. ;p

03.15.2012

while vivienne’s look all centers around the colors found in her *gorgeous* knee-high boots (from g field, at fashion for life).. mine was painstakingly (hah!) put together with pieces i picked up at collabor88. not only do i love the super steep discount found at collabor88, but the fact that usually there is a universal color palette used throughout all the items offered there. it makes picking up something from one designer.. then another… and another… to make a cohesive outfit so, so easy.

the top i’m wearing is from ufo, while the skirt is just one of many color choices set out by the sea hole. i like the contrast of the rougher fabric (adorned with girly li’l flowers!) of the skirt when paired with the delicate texturing on the top.. and how easily the shades work together, especially when accessorized with the necklace i picked up from collabor88 by yummy.

vivi’s look is just as pretty, if not moreso, with that stunning shade of pastel yellow. the jacket, from ricielli is a different sort of feminine — a polished, tailored sort — and it matches the floral folded-over top on her boots *perfectly*. her look also dresses up a simple, plain (and free!) tank top && her favorite pair jeans rather nicely.

so! girly-girl looks for today! it may not be my everyday, but there definitely is a softer side to vixxie. ;D i enjoy challenging myself to create looks that are outside my own personal realm of normal && it’s nice when it actually *works*. i can totally pull off a ~lady~ just as well as the next girl, riiiiiiiiight? …. right?!

lazy weekends

/me yawns && stretches…

mmmnhh.. such a lazy day today~

i didn’t do much of anything all day. slept late, watched TV (catching up on episodes from last season’s rupaul’s drag race… can i just say how *fucking obsessed* i am with this show!? omgaaaah!).. i barely left the comfort of my couch. and it was *nice*, i’ve not had the chance to vegetate this way in a looo~ooong time.

but i did put forth the effort to get dressed out of my PJs. ;p and i figured i should blog today, even if this post is on the cusp of today and tomorrow. i wanted to show off the lazy comfy look i put together for today, at least… but i didn’t feel much like posing and primping for it.

so instead, i moved my lounging from the couch to lounging outside.. from sofa to outdoor swing instead!

it’s baby steps, honey. baby steps.

03.03.2012

and apparently, one of my meeroos felt like sneaking into the shot. i totes think she photo bombed me. but she’s cute, so i’ll allow it. everyone say hi to nymph~

it was nice out today, surprisingly. a li’l chilly (hence the hat from red mint && the super cute mesh toe socks from intrigue co, just to keep me warm!), but still sunny. it makes me hopeful that spring is finally on its way. i’ve been trying to think of ways to make our beachy bit o’ land more.. seasonal. add back some greenery, maybe a few extra palm trees, and really make it look.. lush. as it is, it’s pretty much sand, water && house (a very nicely decorated house, tho! eheh~), and i am ready for the extra warmth and sunshine to come back to my second life just like it is in my first. or at least, i’m really hoping it’s coming back to my first life.. i’ve been so itching for springtime weather that i’m practically going insane.

03.03.2012

this outdoor swing was a good start to make things look more springy. it’s out for stumblebum @ cheeky pea and comes with a *ton* of nice, lounging poses… which were perfect for my lazy day today. it’s in a temporary spot outside, so i’ll have to think of a nicer place for it to go, but it caught just enough sunshine to appease me underneath our outdoor trellis.

maybe once i’m feeling less lazy, i’ll actually work on sprucing up the parcel with plant life. after all, nothing says *spring* quite like bright flowers and rich green grass. it was just so tough today to get the motivation to do anything… and i *still* have that season of drag race to finish (it’s season 3.. and i totes think raja is gonna win!). i swear, i’ve been watching so much of it lately between the older season and the new episodes too (sharon needles.. love her ❤❤❤) that i’m gonna start thinking i’m a drag queen myself..

if you can’t love yo’ self.. how in the hell you gon’ love somebody else!? can i get an amen up in here!

fifty linden fridays are coming to an end! ;__; it makes me so bummed, i *love* these weekly sales. i’ve gotten some amaaazing deals from flf && have discovered brands i otherwise might not have. it’s something i’ve always looked forward to, so i am def sad to see it go.

but at least… it went out with a bang, forreals.

12.30.2011

there are more stores included in this week’s flf than i think i’ve ever seen && these 50L bargains are so, so awesome. hair, shoes, accessories, tattoos, poses, furniture, skins.. i don’t think there’s a category not covered in this sale. it is *so* worth checking out, if for no other reason than to give flf one last hurrah!

12.30.2011

i’ve packed on a lot of the 50L goodies for this look.. to try && give you an idea of the variety goin’ on: the hair i’m wearing is from clawtooth, the boots i’m wearing are from fir & mna, the mesh purse from maitreya (and there’s a pair of their new alexa wedges in brown for 50L too!), the cardi from fri.day (you get *three* colors for the price!), the tank from whippet & buck that’s actually part of a *50L fatpack*, the tattoo from the habitat, && the eyes and armwarmers and smudged black eyeshadow are from the plastik (these items as well — there’s three color choices and each pack comes with shoes, boots, skins, makeups, dresses, eyes.. omgaaaaahhh! if you only get one thing from flf this last week, get *this* from plastik!!!).

/me is out of breath

wouldn’t you like to see something strange?

happy halloween! ahh, my favorite holiday of the year! \o/ i’ve been listening to these two songs all day, pretty much on repeat. *dances like the zombies* and i seriously need to watch hocus pocus at least once before tonight is over..

anyway~ x3

bff vivi && i were definitely in the spirit of halloween today, so i’ve got *two* sets of looks to show off to you. one set of more.. costumed looks, and one set of something casual. but both are awesome, so let us begin!

10.31.2011
click to see it larger @ flickr!

while not exactly.. halloween, vivi && i sorta took to “día de los muertos” inspired looks.. which is around halloween but definitely not the same holiday. still, i’d seriously rock the sugar skull look for halloween if i was more talented in the ways of costume makeup irl, but i can do it in sl so easily! 8D

vivienne went with a skin from pink fuel that was out last year, that is just as awesome now as it was back then. the detail on the face is gorgeous && as always, has the lovely skintone and shading and quality that we both love pf for.

but we still halloween’d it up && did more stylized, costume looks rather than trying to go for authentic day of the dead attire.

10.31.2011
click to see it larger @ flickr!

my skin still has that skull feel, but is from nuuna’s instead && ohhh boy. can you see how amazing it is? i hope you can, because it is. and you can see the contrast between my skin && vivi’s, black and white and then colorful, and how both still work for the looks we’re going for. vivi is more.. sylvia ji, while i went darker and more “typically” halloween.

we’re both wearing goodies from sakide, too! vivi’s blood-stained dress && my corset and lace top are both from sakide. and if you *still* need something to wear to a halloween get together in sl, sakide is seriously the first stop you should make. there is an entire shack outside the main store that’s full of new halloween-y stuffs, including both vivi’s dress && the outfit that includes my corset, as well as mini dresses.. jeans… tattoos… even full witch costumes that are ridiculously adorable.

anddd.. the second looks!

10.31.2011

not only is it a holiday, but it’s *also* been quite a while since bff vivi posed with me for blog pictures. and even though her outfit doesn’t exactly scream halloween.. it was far too cute not to photograph. and! it worked quite well for the halloween-inspired poses we’re using. so it’s win-win. :3

her top is from blah and going into that store is like going into cute overload. *so* many cute designs on tees and accessories, it was enough to put me into sugar shock without the aid of a pillowcase full of candy. xP and my top, in a very appropriate shade of orange, is from epic.. one of my all-time faves for clothes && for fantasy bits and bobs.

but the poses are the real stars.. the knife pose, which cracked us both up the first time we hopped on the pose balls, is out @ ploom (i think for project themeory? so hurry if you want it!) and the standing pose is from magnifique which is actually made for a good vs bad.. angelic and devilish costumed look. both amusing for halloween-ish photoshoots and, as evidenced by the second photo up there, for non-halloween related pics too~

sooo! i hope y’all have a supremely creepy halloween! watch scary movies && wolf down the candy, ’cause i know that’s *exactly* what i’ll be doing this evening..

i’ve decided that in order to keep my sanity, ’cause i’ve been reeeeeally busy irl lately.. instead of trying to blog everyday (which never happens anyway), i’m reducing my posts to 2-3 a week. still enough to *quell* the need to blog, but not so many that i drive myself fuckin’ crazy trying to juggle everything else on top of taking a few hours out to photograph && blog.

sound good? i hope so~!

but now, onto the post!

the zombie popcorn hunt started up again over the weekend && is a hunt i so look forward to. lots of horror, lots of zombies, lots of blood && gore.. but balanced with nice, non-zombiefied separates and accessories, all of which are *free*! \o/

so i’ve put together three looks for today, all usin’ goodies from the hunt, and will mark off the items i’m wearing that are hunt prizes.. as usual. if you need a list of stores, item previews && hints, you can find that here aaaaaand good luck hunting!

september

wooow, it’s already september. o.O months seem to fly by anymore, amirite? summer only has a few short weeks left (eeep)! makes me sad to see the warmer weather on it’s way out, i had a blast this summer~

but it’s inevitable. shorts && flip flops will soon be phased out for thick jackets and heavier fabrics (unless you’re like me && wear flip flops all year round.. teehee). so my look today *kind of* reflects the change in season. at least when it comes to wearin’ layers, anyway..

i just really wanted an excuse to wear this denim overshirt from aoharu that i picked up during their sale. some of my fave jackets are from aoharu && it’s always because of the lovely detail and texturing on their pieces. i’m not usually a denim jacket kinda girl, but this one with it’s layered undershirt && the fact that it’s just so *niii~iiice* left me without a choice. i had to have it. >:O

yeah, i’ve already said it.. probably.. at least 3942342834 times here on my blog but. my favorite color? hot, hot pink. i have a really hard time resisting anything in that shade of pink and even though i’m a li’l late to the party when it comes to these heels from mstyle, my eyes were drawn to this magenta and stayed there ’til i finally caved && bought ’em. the toes were super easy to tint and the texture is so shiny and delicious that it makes the pink *pop* even more. and to top it off, these heels are, i think, the highest i own. added a good six inches to my height… totally makes me feel like less of a shrimp when around the general sl populace! \o/

and my top, which is *new* from onyx wear.. i know is a bit hard to see under my jacket so…

…you’re welcome. 😉

insaaaaanely hot, right! you not only get the wet shirt, but also a full dress as well. and while i didn’t add ’em on, there are two prim attachments that make it seem like you’re really cold with your wet tee on… if you catch my drift. ;3 frank windlow does sexy so well && this top is ridiculously hot. there’s a black version too that’s just as sexy, but. i mean. come on. wet tee always makes you think of see-through white! and while you could go the modest route and wear a bikini or somethin’ underneath, y’know.. after takin’ a nice dip in the pool perhaps.. that’s just not as fun, is it?

totally casual

i’ve been *so* busy the last few days working on an epic blog post for either tomorrow or monday that i haven’t had much time to do any blogging in the meantime. 😦 sad face.

so i decided to make the time to blog a suuuuuuuuper easy && casual look for today, just in time for bubblegum weekend. \o/ i totally did not forget this week, go me~~

jeans, tank top && sneaks.. doesn’t get much more casual than that. ;p

my tank is actually a *freebie* from boom @ their store on the juicy sim. how fitting, considering the design on the tank. eh heh. but it’s adorable, just as are most of the things i’ve picked up from boom, and it’s piiiink. a lovely shade of pink at that! i am sure the color choice was not by accident *ahem* but lucky for me, i likes the pink.

and my jeans.. okay, i know i’ve blogged ’em once already. isn’t it, like, a blogging sin to wear the same pair o’ pants twice in seven days? i’m sure i’m breaking some kind of unwritten rule, but i changed the cuffs okay!? and besides, these jeans from zaara have been glued to my tiny butt in the last several days anyway. they are so nicely made, they kinda trump most of the jeans in my sl-wardrobe. :s plus they make my ass look good, that is all that matters in the end.

the dark pink hair i’m wearing (which, yeah, i realize looks kinda red in the photographs..) is from magika and.. in case you weren’t aware, there is a *sale* going on there. 8D all of the older styles are 99L for a fatpack, and the even older && already discounted styles were dropped even lower than they were before. i’ve no idea how long this sale will last, but it’s definitely worth a visit if there are a few hair ‘dos you’ve been wanting (like me and the blind hair, mmmm) that you’ve not yet gotten. ’cause from what i understand, they will be gone for good when the sale does end! it was packed when bff vivi && i visited last night, but if you can handle the lag then gooooo… gogogogogogo!

quickie post, i know, but as i said… buu~uusy. i promise by the beginning of next week, i’ll be back on a more regular bloggity schedule. x_x but i’m working hard on another post, i swears it, and it’ll be worth it. .. i hope.

i really really wish it was as easy to travel in my first life as it is in my second life. i’d chew my own *right arm* off to be sitting in a mountain-top park like this, instead of just seeing it on my monitor..

/me sighs dreamily

this sim is stunning. and it made for an amazing place to take some *shadow-tastic* pics. which, i guess eases the pain of being unable to stand somewhere similarly beautiful irl.. if only slightly.

i desperately need a vacation. just a li’l break from the everyday, y’know? just vegetate somewhere pretty && let time pass me by for a while. some *vixxie* time, away from the computer (gasp!), away from irl stresses, away from everything. it’d be so nice.

someone that has a vacay comin’ up should totally pack me in their suitcase. :3 just sayin!

aaaaaanyway. onto more important things — my look for today!

*two* of the things i’m wearing are out for super bargain saturday, which i highly recommend grabbing before the day is over. one, my tattoo from para designs, which is a reworked version of a freebie from a li’l while ago. it comes fullbody this time, instead of just on the arms && chest like the freebie was, and there are two versions to pick from. and my tank, which is only half of the two-for-one from berries inc is super girly && in such a lovely color. the other tank included in your purchase is a nice neutral shade, but this one is pink (it’s marked as apricot, but it’s totally pink!) and i *love* the subtle design on the chest. and yeah, i like to be girly.. every once in a while~

and this skin — okay. last night, when i was discussing this skin with bff vivi, she told me something to the effect of… “yeah, that skin looks cute on you! ’cause you totally need a new skin…” she’s a sarcastic asshole sometimes ;p but i can’t help it! skins, i think, are probably my worst sl-vice. if i see a perdy face or a unique makeup, i’m *sold*. this skin, from atomic @ the dressing room about did me in. makes my tiny face so cuuuu~uuute! i loved it so much, i went && bought one of the the non-discounted versions at atomic, too.

it kinda makes me wanna wear less-tan && more-pale skintones. like the petal skintone from curio i wore the other day instead of my usual sundust. sometimes it fits a bit more with blonde hair to be a li’l sun-deprived, but we’ll see for how long i keep up with it. 😉
