explorer

it’s been a good minute since i took pics somewhere *other* than my sky platform. i think it’s just become wayyyy too easy to set up a scene in the sky, or use a backdrop prop (of which i now have a bajillion) that’s already done for me, and use that instead of gettin’ out there && exploring the grid.

so you know what i say to that? NOT TODAY!

explorer

me ‘n’ my three kittens actually teleported somewhere that wasn’t an event or sale and did some good, old fashioned sim hopping. i loved the scenery on this sim, with the pretty red rocks and river and greenery. it may not match my shiny-urban-camo look exactly, but that’s okay.. that’s just part of using someone else’s sim for picture taking. and honestly, it felt really nice to see something that wasn’t put together by my own derp decorating skills.. for that alone, it was totally worth it~

springtime colors

i dunno about you, but for me.. spring is definitely in the air. it may only be the end of february, but it’s been warm ‘n’ sunny outside my rl windows this week and i am *totally* feeling the change of seasons already!

so, naturally.. i decided to put together a few looks to show off today that are all spring inspired!

in this first look, i’m rockin’ some blueberry separates. i love being able to mix && match pieces in my wardrobe throughout the seasons, and i’ve worn these cake leggings several times now in posts. not only do they come in a thousand and one colors, but they’re just *so good* for more casual outfits. and when paired with this super cute cropped hoodie from luxe box this month, it’s comfy while still cute.. especially with these candydoll platforms!

secondly is something quintessential spring to me.. pastels! this tee*fy skirt that’s out @ n21 in this watercolor print just *screams* spring to me. and while i was playing around with this candydoll top, also @ n21, i realized that i could make it match the skirt exactly. it looks like they were made for each other, like they’re a full dress! some strappy reign sandals complete the look in full spring pastel splendor~

another thing that always makes me think spring is floral prints! candydoll always does such nice ones and i fell in love with the color combo on this skirt. beige, cream, light blue and a brighter hot pink.. it’s just lovely. so i paired it with another candydoll top, this time from rewind, in a matching blue ‘n’ white.. and grabbed for another pair of strappy reign sandals from n21, with a thick glass heel that adds just an extra layer of sexy!

are you ready for spring like i am? bring on the sunshine and warm breezes!

cozy in purple

hi hello! december has been kinda busy for me (as it is for everyone, i’m sure) but i’ve broken the drought of posts from me to bring you three looks..

..aaaaand a new face 😀

in case you haven’t seen, lelutka released a *bento* mesh head.. which means this head in particular is like fitmesh for the face! i’ve bounced around between mesh heads in the last year or so trying to find one that suits what i want, but lelutka’s leda head ended up being my absolute favorite. i’ve worn her for so long now that she’s become my new me face.. but i had to try the new simone bento head and i LOVE HER.

LOVE HER.

LOVE HER!

it reminds me so much of tweaking my classic avatar face, getting it just right. this of course isn’t the final shape, i am not sure it’ll *ever* be the ‘final’ shape, but i loooveeeeee ittttt. it looks enough like my leda face that it still feels like me, but still different and better and with new animations and skins (like this one from glam affair that is too cute for words) and i just.. i am completely enamored with it ♥♥

and now onto the looks!

i did three cozy looking outfits, each in purple. surprisingly purple isn’t a color i wear often, so i thought i’d give it a try for a change! these feature a lot of blueberry‘s latest releases, some truth && little bones, and to me look perfect for these colder months where jackets and long sleeves are pretty much a *must*!

dress me up

i really enjoy doing look book type posts. at least, that’s what i’m calling them! several looks at once, with a vague sort of theme to them. not only is it fun to style myself up three different ways, but it also shows off more of the awesome stuff that’s out there.. *and* i get to blabber on about what i’m wearing even more than i usually do! it’s win-win-win~

so! three dresses, all in teal and pink. and begin!

this look, to me, is definitely my pretty in punk aesthetic. i absolutely love pairing soft, girly floral patterns like in this tres blah dress, with the more structured look of a leather jacket (from amitomo) and strapped, chunky-heeled boots (by phedora). i added in some cutesy elements of my favorite things with this cat-ear headband + hair combo from truth && a sailor moon inspired bag by cosmic dust, and i think it all works for a funky, more casual look.

this second look is definitely much more on the sexier side of things. a cute skin-tight dress in teal worn with a cropped denim jacket on top (both by blueberry) paired with some super hot knee-high reign boots is almost effortlessly sexy. it all looks so good together no matter what color combo you go with (of which there are a ton, as is usual for blueberry’s things!) and you could totally wear tights or stockings to have an even more layered look. i added in touches of hot pink with a zenith clutch (which would make this look perfect for a date night!) and a big statement maxi gossamer pendant.. and a not-so-typical lip color from glam affair to try and add in a bit of a darker feel to it.

in this last look, i went full on flirty feminine. it all started with this adorable tee*fy dress, in this lovely colorful leafy pattern, and i added a studded addams bolero on top just for some extra coverage.. autumn winds get chilly, y’know! these knee-high phedora sandals came in a color that matched *perfectly*, and the jewelry from the sugar garden and katat0nik add in some extra color and some extra edge that’s just how i roll.

i really love all three of these looks. they’re all definitely *me* with a spin on each!

return of the coven

one of reign‘s latest gachas for the epiphany is the return of the coven set.. a continuation of their witchy gacha set from last year. and since i pretty much live my life as if i’m the next surpreme, this gacha was basically made for me…

return of the coven

however, the name is a liiiiiiiittle misleading. it implies the coven has been dormant since last year. instead, what really happened is.. we’ve just been quiet, and i’m back to recruiting new members to add to the fold. pumms is the first of many, and she and i are totally not in a shady, seedy shack to summon the dark yordle… cough cough. we’re just here to chat about innocent witch-type things like whether cats or owls are better familiars, or if eye of newt or toe of frog is more potent for love potions. absolutely no shenanigans will take place, i promise……

pumpkin spice & everything nice

who is ready for a little pumpkin spice, worn three different ways? /me raises hand

to be honest, orange isn’t a color i wear too often. but i thought it might be a fun challenge for myself to style up shades of orange that didn’t look particularly halloween… but rather, just simply fall-appropriate.

so let’s see how i did 😀

first, i went a little casual. you can never go wrong with something as classic as a button down shirt with a pair of nice fitting jeans! i used blueberry‘s new top (out @ collabor88) with a pair of candydoll jeans (that are found @ uber), and added accents of dark purple with the buttons on the shirt && these new reign heels. i think deep purple and bright orange look so good together, and with the way these pieces fit.. it’s sexy while still comfortable.

next, i wanted to try wearing orange with black without looking like a halloween decoration! i think i pulled it off 😉 the adorable dress i’m wearing is one of tee*fy‘s c88 releases, and when paired with this sweater by the secret store and the heels && stockings from reign (both also @ c88), the colors not only look great but the style as a whole seems to fit together nicely.

and lastly, i wanted to show how great orange pairs with shades of brown and cream. this look is definitely the most pumpkin spice imo, and i think it all works. i’m wearing the other half of blueberry‘s c88 releases with this skirt ‘n’ belt combo, a pixicat cropped turtleneck on top, and a pair of boots by empire (@ chapter four) that were just way too good to pass up. bare legs can look a bit odd in colder months, but wearing tights or tall boots like these are perfect for making even the teeniest skirts still look appropriate for fall!

i’ve also got on new truth (top two pics) && little bones (bottom pic, at c88) hair styles, new glam affair skin + lip appliers (also @ c88), with some accessories from maxi gossamer, what next, yummy && foxes.

the colors are the pumpkin spice.. and the rest is everything nice. i really enjoy giving myself challenges like this, because i even surprise myself with the way i end up doing things. orange is a fantastic color for fall and is more versatile to work with than you might think!
