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!

It is better to be looked over than overlooked.

What could be happening this weekend? Hmmm… could it be… NEW GOS SHOES??

Style - It is better to be looked over than overlooked

If you haven’t heard the squealing of shoe lovers over the past couple of weeks as the teases for Gos‘s new line have been revealed, then you must have had your music up too loud. How gorgeous are the new Mae platform pumps?? I am so in love with them!

But what I’m even MORE in love with is how Gos has made skin tinting a total snap! With his new Gos Boutique OneTime HUD, you will just go to a website, pick your skin, sync your HUD and boom! Perfectly tinted feet! The HUD holds up to 5 skins at a time, so if you have 5 favorite skins that you switch between, when you change your shoes you can just click on your saved skin and that’s that. The OneTime HUD will work with all the new shoes and feet, so you won’t have to worry about finding the right HUD to work with this pair of shoes or that pair of feet. Gos has 300+ skins in the database currently, so unless you’re wearing some totally obscure skin, you should be able to find your perfect match. And of course you can still do a manual match, but really? You most likely won’t have to!

The part I really like is that the feet have a “sheath” that goes up your leg a bit so the skin blends almost seamlessly without the highlight of your skin fading off into a solid color. Plus, you can turn the sheath off if you’re wearing your shoes with pants. Love!

Be sure to join the Gos Boutique in world group to keep up to date on all the new beauties, get in early to get the shoes, and to get 10% off all Gos Boutique purchases. But do it quick because it won’t be free forever!

Let’s Play At The Arcade!

Unless you’ve been living under a prim boulder, you’ve heard that The Arcade started last night! A big gacha festival, it’s been a much anticipated event!! It’s the weekend and I don’t have time to talk much, but please remember that as with any big event, EXPECT LAG. Don’t start yelling at people, you’re not the Lag Police. But please make it easier for you and everyone else by removing any unnecessary scripted attachments and any ridiculous outfits. You don’t need to wear your big flexi ball gown or carry weapons. No one cares what YOU look like, they’re just there to have fun and shop. 🙂 Also, for the easiest shopping? Check out The Arcade Tumblr because it has the direct link to each machine. Yay!

See you at The Arcade!!

Vintage Fair Starts Today!

Vintage Fair 2012 kicks off today! SO EXCITED! I’m short on time this morning, but I just HAD to show you guys a little more stuff!

Style - Vintage Fair Starts Today!

I know, I’m not usually a redhead, but I was simply called to this color when I put on the Veronica hair by Wasabi Pills! I’ve been looking for a good Veronica Lake style hair in SL forever, and this one is perfect! Especially paired up with the new Vintage Hollywood skin from Adam n Eve! You get a bunch of lipsticks, eye shadows and nail colors with this skin as well, so you can definitely make your own look.

One Bad Pixel brings us the Vintage dress, and I’m not sure when I’ll take it off. It also comes with a smart cropped jacket, which I’m not wearing in the photo but can’t wait to pair with many other things! And of course you know SLink never disappoints your feet, and these adorable Vintage Two Strap pumps are so very yum!

Vintage Fair begins at 4pm SLT, and THIS PAGE will give you the map and SLurls. [I’ll add the direct fair SLurl to my credits.] Remember, events are VERY VERY VERY LAGGY the first few days, so take off your scripted items and your flexi ball gowns and your crazy wings. No one is looking at you anyway, they just want to see the stuff! Have fun, vintage fans!

Oh Miss Brady!

Sometimes I think I was born at the wrong time because I just get such a thrill out of more vintage/retro clothing!

Style - Oh Miss Brady!

When you get to go to Vintage Fair on Saturday, be sure to stop by Coldlogic and pick up the Brady dress. I mean, really? Why wouldn’t you? It’s adorable! And YES, quite Brady Bunch! I really wish I had a dress like this in RL!

I wasn’t sure what shoes I’d pair with this and then I saw the 1970s Heel from new-to-me store ChaChaDee! They are just the perfect little Marcia Brady shoe, don’t you think?

FaMESHed started today and Wasabi Pills put out the Sylvie hair. It’s a simply sweet ponytail style and what I like best about it is that you can wear it with shorts or jeans, but it would also look just as good with a pretty cocktail dress. You all know me – I love versatility in things!

More shopping to do!

Shindig

I love the 7th of every month for one huge reason… Collabor88 starts the next day!! This month’s theme of “Shindig” is a blend of summery citrusy colors that you won’t want to pass up!

Style - Shindig

Chantkare brings us the Shaggylicious mesh sundress. It’s a simple dress but the colors in this just POP! Paired up with Ingenue‘s mesh Jive wedges, also at Collabor88, you have a great summer look!

NOT at Collabor88, the new Harmony chairs from aDORKable Poses! This is such a fun photo prop! There are 5 poses in the chairs and the chairs move around with each pose. I’m sure I’ll be on these again soon because seriously? It’s just too cute!

Hope you weren’t planning on saving your money this weekend because I don’t think it’s going to happen!
