Don’t Tell Me I’m Cute When I’m Angry

Because I already know.

Feeling cute enough to punch someone

This whole outfit was basically an excuse to wear this pleated skirt from HOC Industries.  I comes with a HUD for changing the colours and pattern but I ended up with black and grey because that’s what always happens when I try to dress myself without a plan.

I’m determined to get my money’s worth out of this rainbow hair pack I brought on a whim though

This top’s a full perm kit from Meli Imako.  I think Redgrave and a few other places have regular-perm versions.  Honestly I clip through it all over the place.  I tried making my own alpha layer for it but there are a lot of spots that are sometimes exposed and sometimes not.  I still wear it though because I love the design.

Sitting at the makeup table looking totes adorbs.

I took these photos in the Rockstar Princess skybox from Dirty Boxes since it kind of goes with the “cute with attitude” vibe of the outfit.  This skybox is a bit costlier and prim-ier than I like these days but it’s full of cute details and animations.  If there’s one thing I’m a sucker for it’s animations for things you don’t need to do in SL.

After Work Drinks

I’ve probably said before but I love officewear.  This blog would probably be 90% blazers and pencil skirts if I could find some halfway decent office locations to take photos in.

Today’s outfit is a loose tank and leather skirt and is probably the most mesh I’ve worn at once:

The textures on the skirt are great but they didn’t really come out in any of the photos

I was a bit worried about buying this tucked tank from Tee*fy at first because it’d only work with skirts and pants that end at just the right place but it turns out it’s working with a lot of stuff, especially when you can wear a wide belt to tidy up the join.  I’d love if they had a lace or sheer version though to pair with a tube top for a more clubbing look.

It’s the subtle textures that really make something look good

I also finally stopped being cheap and brought a copy of this skin that doesn’t have the blue eyeshadow baked in so I can be a bit more gentle on the makeup.  So yay!

The real stars though are these gorgeous wedges from Maitreya Gold:

The new loves of my life

The toes seem a little off to me but otherwise they look amazing and the skin matching has to be the easiest I’ve ever used.  Although my skin came out pretty red in these photos so it’s not matching so great here unfortunately.

Totally appropriate table dancing courtesy of my Vista AO and, like, two beers.

Mesh is So Mainstream

So I’m all alternative (read: poor) and wearing no mesh again today:

also, I can't breathe in this

I wear all this makeup so you know I don’t care what you think

I have a bit of a thing for corsets and this one from KaS is probably my favourite, despite the fact that I find it impossible to fit.   It’s got a simple design with great little details (like all the padlocks) and is scripted to change tightness, recolour and stop you from bending in it.  I’m just kind of standing there in these shots because I couldn’t find a sit pose that looked natural in it.

this is me standing respectfully in front of the cross

My whole idea for this outfit had been to pair the corset with a mesh maxi skirt from Jane for a more goth, less punk type look but the skirt cut in to the corset so it didn’t work.   So I ended up going the other way entirely.

I love this mini skirt from Blow-Up.  It’s tiny, like coordinate-your-undies-with-your-outfit tiny but the quality and the details are awesome.  Plus I think it’s cute.

this blue eyeshadow's a bit much, even for me

tell me more!

Splash of Colour

My inspiration for this post was this high-waisted skirt from R.icielli.  I wanted to do a drab, colourless office type theme then stand in the middle in my bright yellow skirt and shoes.  Turns out there’s a lot of flash office furniture for sale in Second Life, just not set up anywhere I can stand next to it for free.

this outfit made my legs look really long

The cabinet and painting are from Corn and the chair, desk and everything on it (December not included) are by Meli Imako and available free on the marketplace.  It normally has a wooden top but since it’s full perm I made it glass.

your necklace says “love” but your eyes say “you’re fired”

The Love necklace comes with a second section that hangs down the front as well as matching earrings, but I like to wear it like this
