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.

It Used To Matter

Today’s photos were taken at Virtual Decay (much more attractively photographed by Honour McMillan here).  It’s a grungy urban decay themed sim built around the Virtual Decay store.

This outfit’s really about these Suicidal Unborn shorts.  I love the texture and I picked this top to show off the high waist.  They line up pretty nicely.

Speaking of this top, I love the idea but not so much the execution.  It tends to stick out in weird ways in some poses but more annoyingly I can’t get an alpha texture to match it.  The same bit of me will be sticking through it in one pose and exposed in another so you can’t win whether you mask it or not.

I still wear it though because I like it but if you can’t stand that kind of thing it’s probably a no-go.

Looking pensive in an alley.

A lot of the textures around here look good at a distance but are pretty blurry up close.  Not sure if that was a problem with my computer not loading textures properly or if they’re just like that.  Wow I’m really complainy today aren’t I?

These ankle boots are a group gift from Lethal Couture.  I like their distinctive style and for 0L there’s no reason NOT to have them.

These boots aren’t made for walking, though.

Cherry Blossom

Today I’m breaking out some much-needed colour courtesy of the gorgeous April dress from Celoe and the garden at Kittycat’s Cafe in Cherry Blossom:

Colours!

To be honest I had trouble playing this look straight.  My instinct was to chuck on some spikey jewellery or lace-up boots or punk hair or something.  I decided screw it, I need to stop hedging my looks and girly it the hell up.

I do love this dress although my underarms look a bit weird because I had to set my body fat to zero to fit it.  SL’s getting more realistic all the time!

A better look at the hair and earrings

I thought I’d go all out on the look with these bow earrings.  They’re actually colour-changing hair bows from Truth’s Rayne hair that I re-purposed.  Still not sure if they’re cute or silly but either way it works for me.

Needs more mohawk

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.

Just another regular outfit, featuring the only floral I have in my wardrobe:
