Black & White (& Red All Over)

[Edited to add:  I totally gave the wrong slurl for ZIPS when I sent this post out last night.  Eep!  That’s what I get for blogging at 1AM.  The correct SLurl is: ZIPZ, and it’s been fixed after the cut as well.  Sorry about that.]

I have a helluva lot to show you today, so let’s get to it!

So I had put together outfit A, and was poking around SLX looking for some jewelry to go with, when I found store X, and outfit B was born.  But outfit B was so similar to outfit A, I decided to blog them both!  Then I saw that outfit B looked so fantastically smexy on person Z, I knew I had to include pictures of her as well.

*takes a breath*

Still with me?

Yeah, I don’t usually know what I’m talking about either.  HAI LOOK, PICTURES!

Outfit A:

I love this hair from Philotic Energy, although I’ve never worn it much because of the straight-bang style.  But I got off my butt last night and combined it with some ETD bangs, thereby elevating it to one of my favorite hairstyles.

This ensemble started as a happy accident.  When I was searching for the hairstyle in inventory (called Velvet,) I happened upon this corset from Silent Sparrow (also called Velvet,) and the match was just too delicious to pass up.

Now, I love these sculpted legwarmers.  Let’s get that out of the way, they’re absolutely darling.  Now it’s time for Mourna to do a little scolding.   After buying these legwarmers (and a few other items) at Moloko, I started receiving group spam from their store.  This is such an obnoxious business practice, I almost decided not to blog them.  Eventually my vanity got the better of me, but I couldn’t show them to you without a warning.  Group spam makes Mourna supersad.  It also makes her speak in third person, evidently…

So!  While searching for some skully jewelry on SLExchange (which I use as a kind of catalog for shopping inworld,) I happened upon the above skull cameo from ZIPZ.  I’m amazed I haven’t heard of this shop before!  Very cute stuff, I spent a bundle.  One of my favorites looked quite similar to the above ensemble, so I decided to blog them together.

I give you, Outfit B:

Poofy hair!  I just adore this ‘do.

One of the reasons I love this outfit so much is that multiple pieces are included, not the least of which are BOOTY SHORTS!  Yeah, my dirty secret is out.  :O

This set undresses really well.  Makes me want to jump on a pole, or something.  Maybe.  Or just splash my bum across the blog.  There we go.

I usually drag my good friend Zorena along with me when I shop, and we usually end up buying many of the same pieces.  When I saw how good this set looked on her, I couldn’t pass up giving you guys a peek.

RAWR!  Amirite?  Yeah, I’m right.
