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! 🙂

Here Kitty Kitty!

So if you haven’t heard, Gospel Voom’s sweet kitty, Archibald, was hit by a car recently. Bless his strong little heart, he managed to get himself home and has been fighting like a champion to recover after several days in the hospital. Naturally, the cost of the surgeries and other veterinary care is pretty super high. I think most of us know the cost of having our beloved pets taken care of, and the cost of emergency care is even higher.

Truth District and several talented friends from across the grid have come together to help raise funds for Archibald’s expenses. There are some cute items, some of them exclusive to the event, in the fundraiser. On top of that, Gos has his store at Truth District set to 50% off! So help a sweet kitty and an awesome kitty daddy and do some shopping for a good cause. 🙂

Style - Here Kitty Kitty!

The fundraiser for Archie lasts until September 2nd at Truth District.

Switching Signs

The new Zodiac cycle starts tomorrow! [August 23rd] As a Leo-Virgo cusp sign myself, I’m happy to explore my Virgo side this coming month!

Style - Switching Signs

Zodiac is a monthly themed sales event centered around, well, the zodiac! Each month a new group of several of your favorite stores will create a brand new item using astrology as their inspiration.

I’m A Unicorn

I really hadn’t planned on blogging this outfit. It was just a fun thing I threw together before heading out to a party last night. But I showed a pic of the skirt on plurk, and Gogo said I reminded her of a unicorn. How could I not blog my unicorn outfit after that??

Style - I'm A Unicorn

Auxiliary has these cute Alluring Mini Skirts out at Collabor88 and I have never been one to pass up a cute mini skirt! It is mesh, and you will probably need to wear underpants with it unless you are either A) good at modding alpha layers, or B) don’t mind flashing cooter. Auxiliary isn’t officially open yet, but from the sneak previews they’ve given us so far, I cannot WAIT until they do!

Also at Collabor88, Ploom has this lovely Tart hair. I used to have my hair like this ages ago where it’s a little longer in the front. I’m wearing the dipped color and there is a HUD to change your colors! If it came in a rainbow dipped color, I’d be in heaven!

My Butterfly necklace by Maxi Gossamer and Pinwheel pose by aDORKable Poses are also out at Collabor88 this month. What did I tell you guys about this being a fantastic month there??

I have to go prance around like a unicorn now! Bye!

Pretty Little Liar

Do you want to know a secret? I’m in a fashion funk. 😦 I know, it’s awful! I am not exactly sure what to do to pull myself out of it, so suggestions would be totally helpful! Today I took half a page from my favorite Pretty Little Liar Aria Montgomery and put together something I thought she would probably wear. Aria’s style is usually dark, with a good mix of edgy and feminine touches. And she wears a lot of socks. I don’t want to be the one to tell her that socks aren’t pants, though, because she’s little and it’s cute.

Style - Pretty Little Liar

I certainly hope “A” doesn’t send me a text for trying to be like Aria.

I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues

I’m supposed to be packing, but I’m procrastinating. No, I’m not going anywhere fun. My dad’s having another surgery and I’ll be staying over with my parents for a few days while he recovers just to help out. But I guess I can pretend it’s a vacation? I’m a little blue about it, so putting together a blue outfit just seemed totally right.

Style - I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues

For Fifty Linden Friday this week, Ingenue has these great new Collette skirts. They are mesh skirts, but you don’t have to worry about the fit because the skirt part is like a normal prim crotch flap, but being that it’s mesh, it moves with your body and blends in with the rest of the skirt. Love love love! There are 2 colors for FLF this week, and I’m so very happy she put it out early so I could get it!!

Collabor88 for November starts on the 8th and The Sea Hole is putting out some really cute items, like this pretty little Corsage ring, bracelet, and nail polish set. I can’t wait for the whole collection!

The dryer just went off so I guess it’s back to packing. I’ll see you guys next week!

Give the lady what she wants!

I’m still having way too much fun playing with Depth of Field on the LL viewer! But that is okay, because really, the background isn’t as important as my outfit, right? Right!

Style - Give the lady what she wants.

There were some goodies released this weekend! From G Field, these utterly lovely Lucy lace tops are necessities for anyone’s wardrobe. You can wear them short or longer, and with or without the torso prim. So very ladylike! And the best part is that these truly will take you from summer to winter, depending on how you style them. Love!

But although we DO strive to be ladies sometimes, we don’t want to be prudes, and that’s where the fun, flirty, and really short Mani skirt from perennial favorite Nyte n Day comes in. I simply LOVE this skirt. It is sculpted, but so very very easy to fit with either the resizer script or by hand. I used the resizer and it worked great! Several colors are available, and trust me, I’ll be going back to pick more up!

Go shop!

Preparations

Happy New Year, everyone!! I hope yours was as fantastic as mine was! Now, I don’t know about you, but I always make a lot of preparations for the new year. Usually in the form of trying to move some furniture around. I was attempting to do this in SL, but I got distracted by my cute outfit and my new socks.

Style - Preparations

This schoolgirl-esque outfit is called Black Night and is from Acid & Mala. Being that I’m a sucker for a short pleated skirt and a nice sweater, I simply had to have it. There is actually a bottom part to the sweater that has the white shirt poking out, but I felt it made me look fat, and honey, I can’t have that in both worlds.

And my cute little socks!! I know, everyone probably has them already, but my sweetie gifted me with the Scrunched Prim Socks from Maitreya last night, and all morning I’ve been tippy-toeing around in them. I may never take them off. If I don’t wear shoes again, please blame Aldwyn.

Here’s to a bright new year!

30 Days – Day 15

So I was out dancing with my wife and my boyfriend the other night and as most clubs have stores and whatnot around them, she found me the cutest teeny tiny little pink skirt. But when I put it on, I wondered how I could wear it and be kind of cute and not slutty.

Style - 30 Days - Day 15

I think it came out adorable. But you can’t have that sweater. Sorry about that.

Also, I’m wearing elf ears because Sophia Harlow thinks I’m super cute in them. 🙂

Back To School With FIR!

I know it’s just the beginning of August, but this is around the time when stores start pushing all their Back To School wear. Around my area, the kids start heading back usually in mid-August, so I guess that’s why! 🙂

The new Checker Shirts and Tux Pants by FIR made me think of that perfect “Back To School” outfit that you’d wear on your first day back. You know the one. It has to look casual, like you’re not trying too hard, but it has to be new! You can’t go back in any ratty old clothes. Save those for the second day!

Review - *FIR* - Back To School

I think I make a cute boy, don’t you?

The Checker Shirt comes on all layers, for that tucked or untucked look, and the prim cuffs and collar are modifiable so you can get the best fit. The shirts actually look pretty sweet on girls, too!

The Tux Pants are just nice, basic pants with a slimmer slouchy cuff. Very cute!

I love to see a guy in clean cut basics, and these fit the bill! Guys, get yourselves over to FIR and get shopping!!
