Happy Trails

This is kind of a sad post for me today! This is my last post as an official Collabor88 blogger.

Style - Happy Trails

I have been with Collabor88 as a blogger since the very very beginning when there were just 8 of us. It has been an AMAZING journey and I am so thrilled to have been part of it. But as a blogger, sometimes you have to ask yourself if you’re really doing justice to the wonderful creators who take part in the event every month. My answer was, unfortunately, no. As much as I absolutely adore the event, I feel like it’s time for me to go so someone new can take my place and have as much fun with it as I did!

I wanted to say a huge huge thank you to Drinkenstein Sorbet for starting such a fantastic event, and wish her well as she ends her SL business to go on some RL adventures. And also, a HUGE thank you to all the awesome Collabor88 creators who have allowed me to blog them every month for the past two years. You guys make SL beautiful. ♥

Of course, I’ll still be blogging Collabor88 on my own because, duh, I’ll always want to shop there! 🙂

I Surrender Honestly

I’m feeling awfully lazy today. I really don’t even want to get out of bed!

Style - I Surrender Honestly

More goodies from FaMESHed! I fell in love with the adorable Bowlicious dresses from The Secret Store when I first saw the photos! I’m wearing it in cappuccino because I sure could use one right now!

Gos Boutique has a special Gold Snake color of the Grace sandals for FaMESHed this round. I’m not usually a big fan of animal prints, or snakes, but I really couldn’t resist buying these gorgeous shoes.

Trompe Loeil‘s Gramercy bedroom suite is so perfect, I can’t get over it. I’m just using the bed right now, but truly, the whole set is amazing. It’s also great for men because it’s not overly feminine like many bedroom sets in Second Life tend to be.

Not at FaMESHed, how cute is the Virginie hair from Truth?? I love the swoop to the side! Have I mentioned how much I love his Fades pack? I’ve been wearing the Seasand fade color lately and it’s just fab!

Enough of that – let’s get some shopping done!

You Were Only Waiting For This Moment To Arise

I love when new stuff comes out. I really do! And I love it even more when it’s pretty pretty pretty!

Style - You Were Only Waiting For This Moment To Arise

Ava is a new skin from Belleza, and I fell in love with it at first demo! In fact, and I hardly EVER say this about a skin, but I have not seen anyone in it who doesn’t look amazing. If you fatpack it, you get the whole lipstick bundle, too, although you could just buy the plain skin and then the lips and then use whatever eye makeups you like. It’s quite versatile! I fatpacked, of course, because it’s what I do.

Truth released new hair and Edith may be my favorite of the three new releases. It’s a gorgeous long hair topped with a casual knit cap. More hats and more accessories on hairs, please!!

Cae is in Collabor88 this month and she’s spoiling us with the loopy swoopy Guinevere set. Look how cool the necklace is! And the earrings, which you can’t see under my hair, have not left my ears since the first of the month.

Go do some shopping!

If you get lost, you can always be found.

I love when I can put a new skin on and not have to change a thing about my shape. It’s VERY VERY rare that it happens because not all skins are going to look good on me. In fact, most don’t unless I tweak my shape to get it to look right. Of course, I’m tweaking my shape every week anyway. I’m definitely not in the “NEVER TOUCH MY SHAPE” crowd! So I was super happy to try on Adam n Eve‘s new Siobhan skin last night and feel pretty instantly – with no tweaking!

Style - If you get lost, you can always be found

It’s a different look for me, since I tend to look more like jailbait [Y que?] but I love it! The lips…oh my god, these lips! Just kissably soft! Also, if you’ve never tried an Adam n Eve skin before, trust me when I say the body is just as wonderful as the face!

Truth put out some new hairs a few days ago, including the aptly named Winter. I love the style of this one, but what really makes it special is the scarf! I love when hairmakers put scarves or hats or other accessories on the hairs because you all know how hard it is to have to mod stuff and try to get it to fit right! Now, if Mr. Hawks will release this hair without the scarf…

Happy shopping, everyone!

I Get Too Hungry For Dinner At Eight

My dear forever sister, Rylan Carling, decided to hang up her hat as far as SL fashion blogging goes today. I’m sad, because Rylan has definitely been one of my fashion inspirations for many years now, but I also know that she has so many amazing things that are going to be happening in her offline life. So as much as I want to be selfish and tell her to keep doing it, I am happy for her for so many other reasons. While I was doing my photo tonight, I thought about her. The lighting in the picture reminded me of one she did for my husband and me last year, so Ry, this post is dedicated to you! ILY!!!

Alice Project has been doing the Advent gift giving over on Mint Tulip this month and it’s been great! Plus, if you miss any of the gifts, Alice has helpfully put them on the wall for the low low price of $50L each. I combined the Bonnie bangs from today’s gift with the Clarissa hair from a previous gift. Since the bangs are not rigged, it was no problem moving them around to fit the hair. I have kind of a fivehead, so I almost always need bangs!

Coldlogic put out the cutest party dresses last week! I’m wearing Merry in Emerald since it IS the Pantone color of 2013! I just love this dress. It’s a simple, classy party dress and, as you all KNOW I love, you can dress it up and down in many ways.

Collabor88 is still going strong, and you’ll want to stop by to get Maxi Gossamer‘s Patience heart watch necklace, Marukin‘s Dolce & Frais poses, and the Snowy City Loft by Barnesworth Anubis.

Happy Shopping!

It’s More Than A Touch Or A Word We Say

I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend! And speaking of fabulous…

Style - It's more than a touch or a word we say

My friend Caelan Hancroft opened her new jewelry store, Cae, this weekend! Look how pretty her Entangled set is! Choker, ring, earrings, cuff – all beautiful! I can’t wait to see what else Cae is going to have in store for us in the future!

And you know a weekend isn’t complete until Truth releases pretties for us! I’m wearing Adeline and I’m sooo into braids lately, so I jumped for joy when I saw this hair style!

Happy shopping, y’all!

I Hope To Be There By The Morning

Quiet day for me today. I’m really just waiting for the morning.

Style - I Hope To Be There By The Morning

Couple of events to tell you about: The Unhinged event kicked off today and there are a lot of great designers involved. This event is a charity fundraiser for Second Lifer Eku Zhong. I don’t know Eku myself, but when so many people are willing to help you out, you’ve got to be a pretty special person. You can read all about the event on this page.

FAIR starts on November 17th, and as usual, it’s going to be fantastic! Lots of great items and I’ll definitely been showing you guys more from the event after it opens.

Happy shopping!
