Strumpet Mode

I was innocently strolling around the grid when my friend Rene Caerndow spotted me + called me a "tasty strumpet." According to Rene, the term "strumpet" means "like a sassy tart, but cuter" in (the Queen's) English. Lord love the British.

Here's what I was wearing that day, plus 3 other strumpet-y dresses, tattoos + jewelry looks that are nearly all free or $1L. And the background? Just the free kick-ass photo studio group gift from Lithium. Love!
This free purple minidress from LP Design is so fierce. The silver stitching detail + "open heart" buttie cutout (rimmed with cherry red) is just too much. In a good way. In the words of RL stylist supreme Rachel Zoe, I die.This much exposed skin screams for hawtie tats, and I remembered this striking freebie back tattoo from Cyanide. The thigh gun is the former I>3 Rien lucky board tattoo gift; there's an Ace card and gun on the thigh + the words "Power Doll" etched across the tummy. I totally heart sassy tattoos.

This black dress by Hyper Culture is one of the best finds on the Mix & Mingle Hunt (which ends today so hurry if you haven't grabbed it yet). I agree with Rene that the just-peeking-out buttie (from underneath the lace edges here) is very strumpet indeed.
The black canvas of this dress really makes your skin + eyes pop, and I have fallen in luuurve my new fave eye store: Negoposi. It is such a gem for anyone who loves shiny, glowy, luminous eyes like moi. And get this: all eyes are $30L each. Amazing! There are some really cool freebies/$1L gifts at the Designer's United II showcase (the dark "crow" theme is so lovely), like these $1L Djinn & Tonic earrings: check out the teeny tiny crow dangling from each oval faceted stone. Keeping it casual is a must when trolling the grid so I slipped on SoReal's meticulously detailed sneaks, which might just be the the absolute perfect carnation pink. The level of detailed texturing on these sneakers is simply eye-popping. (For me, SoReal does for sneakers what BAX does for boots: sets the standard to beat for super-realistic textural detail). Finally, I've been wearing these $1L tough-girl finger tapes by Luck Inc. to smex up everything.
Strumpet? I'll give you strumpet. *smooches Rene*These sexy, slouchy Miel socks + the fun Sey pumpkin handbag had me at first glance, so I gladly jumped on the orange-and-black bandwagon and created this look to go with. This triple mini-pumpkin ring is so adorable, and I also adore the mini candy corn earrings. It's a bit hard to tell from this pic, but the skirt on this striped Solange dress is really unique: the skirt is made of individual "feather"-like pieces that flutter out when you move. So pretty, especially with this unique "white ink" tattoo. Here's the black and gold version of the same SoReal sneaks too.
All this orange put me in a contrary mood, so I donned some silvery rocker hair + other silver stuffs. This shaggy 'do is just as suuuupaflexi as it looks.
Atomic's pumpkin hunt is giving away some gorges skins, but their bat tattoo gift is also supacool. I matchy-matchy'ed it with this Alyssa Bijoux bat charm necklace. And these free furry black booties with stiletto heels are just darling, especially with black slouchy sox.Back to the free Lithium photo studio for a sec: this thing is so awes. The graffiti backgrounds are tres smex and it comes with props boxes that you can move around. It also comes with 4 poses, but my boo Gavin McGinnis and I were having fun playing around with the Diesel Works Halloween gift (a super generous collection of past poses gifts), including some naughty couples poses. Here's Gavin and I proving once and for all that there's nothing sexier than sprawling out on barrels full o' toxic chemical laxatives.
Gavin won this "SHOW ME YOUR BEWBS" T-shirt from the Atomic lucky chair and thought it was funny. Personally, I was reminded of the signs that shirtless dudes liked to raise above their heads while clutching beer and shouting things at girls while zooming by in pickup trucks. On the freeway. In Arizona.My "Spidey-sense" tells me that I'll be embracing my strumpet identity often from now on. Thanks Rene! You da best gf. -- Oh and what's that I hear 'bout London? How it tries to be the NYC of the European continent? *foresees a NYC vs. London throwdown in the not-so-distant future*

Love + fashionista kisses to all!

"slex & the city" life has you so highly strung I think you may explode into a fashionistic bloom of love petals fluttering down from every skybox on the grid kissing the pixel world with you love.
Such a lovely compliment to have your blog include little ole moi!
You eye for finding delectitudes( i make up words) amazes me. You ROCK!
London v NYC = bring it ON! Oh and by the way, Europe is that little continent off the coast of Great Britain that occasionally requires us to dig them out of the shit. UK RULES ok!!
