look of the day: Vogel T-shirts & Zero Number slippers

Schrottvogel Wei, the designer behind Vogel Surfwear and SJA Customboards, has some t-shirts that are perfect for cruising around the beaches of SL.  His experience as a graphic designer shows in his t-shirt designs. I’ve got a whole bunch of them; I’m featuring my favorites in the image below:

You can click the image to get a closer look at the designs; a much larger version is available on my flickr stream. (Just in case you’re wondering about the saying on the last t-shirt, it’s from a song called Killing in the Name by RATM. You can read a little bit more about it here.)

I felt like dressing up low-key today because I’m going to be busy in RL this afternoon. When I’ve got a full day ahead of me, I tend to just take it easy in SL and tend to small business issues that won’t consume too much time. T-shirts always go nice with booty shorts, so I busted out one of my favorites from League. I also felt like giving my new Laqroki April skins some face time (ha!) as well as my new Charlotte hair from Truth. The headband that comes with Charlotte is scripted to color change, so I was able to match it to my tees.

The freebie Zero Number slippers I got during my recent visit to the head-explodingly adorable Drowsy sim finished up my look. In Hawaii, we don’t call them flip-flops, we call them rubber slippers… or, if you employ local dialect, “rubbah slippahs”. Lol 😀 Over here in the islands, we don’t wear our shoes indoors, so seeing a bunch of slippers and shoes arranged on a shoe shelf out on the porch is not an uncommon sight at all.  I thought it’d be cute to put the slippers at the doorway of my SL house, and I set them up the way you’d see in RL:  some people put their slippers away nicely, others will kick them off hurriedly and haphazardly.

Vogel Swimwear

I’ve blogged about Schrottvogel Wei of SJA Customboards in the past — twice, to be exact. I’m a fan of his swimwear, so I was pleased to find out that the new shop called Vogel that was being set up at Juicy Del Mar is actually his latest venture. I really don’t blog much these days because my SL has become really busy, but I couldn’t let the opening of his new store pass by without sharing the news with the few people who read here. ^_^

You can view larger versions of the following images on my flickrstream if you’re one of my contacts (add me and I’ll reciprocate ^^).

Vogel’s bikinis come in a wide variety of vibrant colors, interesting patterns, and eye-catching designs.  Seriously, he’s made a lot!  Featured in this post are some of my favorites.  ❤

And once again, I’m extremely appreciative of the fact that they manage to straddle that fence between cute and sexy.  The tie strings on the sides look hot, and the cut of the bikini bottoms is such that you’re adequately covered up; no bits or pubes hanging out!  (I really hate when that happens o.o)

You can find these and more at Vogel, located on Juicy Del Mar (Juicy Del Mar 95, 206, 25).

Other items I’m wearing:  Skins by Laqroki, M&R Cupcakes, and Gala.  Hair by Laqroki, Muism, and artilleri.  Eyes by Mela’s and Simtropia.
