Epic blogging fail, I TOTALLY MOVED

So as your humble narrator is now blogging-as-work, I went to renew my custom domain name. And lo, some dumbass domain-name clearinghouse has registered my site.


Fear not, oh my five readers. Vice Vixen has gotten a makeover. And now, please find me at :

Fortune Cookie charms are so adorable.  I like jewelry that signifies something , and what’s more hopeful than a a fortune cookie?  It offers insight, lucky numbers, and vague future predictions.  And this charm is just the cutest.

Street Spotted: The power anti-suit

One of the best things about living in New York is the constant inspiration on the street and subway. The pants I’m wearing right now were acquired after asking a very eager to share woman at Broadway-Lafayette where she got them. I may not have taken them off since. New York City dwellers are subject to temperature extremes (60 degrees outside, 160 on the subway platform where you’re stuck for half-an-hour), environmental exposure, long walks to and fro, and other look killers you just don’t have to deal with when you drive to and from work in your own climate controlled space.

A few weeks ago I spied a woman in her late thirties who looked like the perfect combination of together and polished and professional and stylish and casual. She was wearing a neat little suit derivative that really embodied all this. An approximation:

I have a thing for crescent moons- I have one tattooed over my sternum.  Via Geekologie, a moon for your house.  It’s like, from Russia or something.  Huge, but if I had a big old converted barn I bet I could make it work.

…and you shouldn’t be all cliche and expect a boy to necessarily get you one.  It’s a two-way street, you know…

A sleek twist on bad-girl bling

I’ve posted handcuffs, knives, razorblades, and guns as jewels.  Such is my heritage as half Brooklyn-Italian.  However, these pieces are often large, cartoonish, and not too refined.  Not so with this delicate cuff lariat from CutXPaste.  It looks like it’s for the closet bad girl, the one who you don’t suspect til you’re tethered to the bedposts.

We got codes, y’all!

The lovely proprietress of the very well-designed and well-stocked Boudoir Essentials noted our love for their cool gear and extended a code exclusively to readers! So from today until August 15th, the entire mermaid collection is 15% for us. Yay!

What’s in a mermaid collection, you may ask? I wondered, when I spoke with Boudoir Essentials about it. It turns out, a lot. Toys for beginners with speed adjustments. Stealth shower vibes. High-end, fashion-savvy toys. Toys for boys. Wands with bling. That’s just the beginning, and the best part about the mermaid collection is its diversity. It really does have something for every bad girl and boy. I’m personally partial to the waterproof crystal flex, but I am very, very naughty.

Thanks again, BE! (Readers, use code VixenSummer at checkout to get your discount!)
