Island In The Sun

If you haven’t been to the latest round of Collabor88 you need to go. It’s their birthday round, loaded with tons of stores participating. I picked up Soy’s Dreamy Hanging Chair there. It’s perfect for finishing off the summer in. I’m wearing Mon Cheri’s Sachi Flaire Dress, it comes with sleeves (not shown) also. It’s available in a variety of solids, and these fun tie dye prints. They also include a belt with HUD so you can change belt colors.

My hair is is Laila from Mina. It’s at Festival of Sin II at the moment. I love the height at the back, and how full it is. My shoes are Essenz’ Marrakesh wedges, and they are available at her main store. They feature a metal circle emblem on the front of the strap, with a HUD for silver or gold option.

Sweet Escape

Sweet Escape

This was summer of fantastic releases that really filled out my wardrobe, and my house full of beachy things.  I picked up this cute boho blouse at Mimikri. She’s updated her store, if you haven’t been in awhile. Nothing but mesh now, and she always has something neat there. I really liked this top, and am wearing it with Blueberry’s Elina Shorts. They have a side string, and a really nice shape to them. I bought the fatpack, so I can wear them with anything. The fatpack HUD lets you easily pick from all the colors, and even recolor the side strings.

My hair is from Slink, who recently installed a new store. The rebuild is contemporary, sleek, and still has a bit of a retro feel to it. I really like it.  She’s redefined the interior space to specific sections making the place very easy to navigate. My Trinidad sandals are from Essenz. She’s has so many fantastic sandals, but these are my favorites.  My beach house is full of all kinds of fun gacha’s I played all summer, and some favorites I have picked up over the past year or so at a variety of events, and stores.

Hair Fair 2013 – Vanity Hair

Hair Fair 2013 - Vanity Hair

I’m wearing the new Boys Will Be Boys hairstyle from Vanity Hair released at Hair Fair 2013. It’s a high volume updo, with bun, that comes down in two pigtails, wrapped with hair, and ending in front and in back with huge a huge curl.  I’m wearing it with Tres Blah’s Frilly Dress in blush from this months Collabor88.  It’s a romantic little sleeveless dress with ruffled bodice and hem, and bow tied to the side.  It’s available in a variety of colors and prints. I’ve accessorized it with LaGyo’s Isabella earrings, and necklace in pale, mesh flowers on gold cord. I’m also wearing G Fields Ribbon Slingback shoes in salmon. They’re nice slingbacks, and each shoe has a menu when you click it to turn the front and back bows off. Making it a really versatile part of your wardrobe.  My manicure is a peach to flamingo pink ombre polish in Set 31 from Flair, I’m wearing it on my SLink Avatar Enhancement Hands, with skin appliers from Izzie’s to match my Izzie’s Jill skin.

Hair Fair 2013 - Vanity Hair

The other two hairstyles Vanity Hair released at Hair Fair 2013 are Fantastic Girls, and Sonata. Fantastic Girls is a voluminous pouf that ends about shoulder level with soft barely there curls. It would be great for formal wear. Sonata is an intricate looped updo that frames the head from the back, another great formal wear hairstyle.

Til The Clouds Clear

No hiding the fact I like purple in this outfit.  I really like the new mesh Jessy Studded Shorts from Erratic, they are available in a variety of colors, but I really like their dip dyes.  Great textures, detail, and fit.  Wasabi Pills also has a new release, at FaMESHed.  Noriko is the cutest mesh blunt cut bob, with color changeable barrettes via HUD.  Another current event item is the mesh Half Tucked Tee from Tres Blah I’m wearing.  It’s currently available at Collabor88, but not for long, as they are due for a new round soon.  Grab it while you can, at a great price, or visit their main afterwards.   I finished off my purple lust with Maitreya’s mesh Alexa Wedges.  I’m wearing all the accessories it seems, from tons of stores,  Boom’s cute Take It Easy Tote, which is available in a variety of designs, this one being the Bar Code.  I’m wearing Yummy’s Mixtape Necklace, and Hodgepodge Beaded Bracelets, with a necktie from Coco Designs.  This necktie is part of the Puff Sleeves Top in Yellow, available in their discounted department located on the top floor of the store.

Camille

Camille @ Mayfair

A new session of Collabor88 just started, and is cutely themed in “French New Wave” a fusion of Mod and romantic leanings. I picked up this cute outfit called Camille from Tres Blah there.  It’s a lovely bulky cable knit jumper/sweater, and skirt outfit done in mesh.  It’s all one piece, and is available in a number of colors/patterns. Shown here is pale pink, which is a lovely light peach/salmon pink/sakura pink jumper/sweater with white floral skirt.  I picked up the greens in the floral skirt with my Long Scarf, and Moxie shoes both from Maitreya. The scarf is available in a number of colors, and is made of sculpts, and flexi prims that move with you.  The Moxie’s are a fun shoe featuring many options from 2 styles of over the knee socks in a number of colors, and even a shorter sock add on, textures, and shoes are menu color change.  I accessorized with a bag from the latest mesh release from R.icielli.  The Yuse bag comes in a wide variety of colors, and is laden with detail, which I like.  I also like that it is available in so many many colors just as is the rest of their collection of bags, and clothing, I seriously want it all.  Another new release I am wearing is the Trend hair from LeLutka, a soft mesh style that drapes over one shoulder.  I loved the look of this hair, as I did with all three new hair styles they just released so much I had to snag them in my usual Light Brunette pack and another in Light Blonde.  I also purchased this cute ring at Collabor88 from Whippet & Buck, it’s non rigged mesh so you can mod, and available in a variety of colors in one pack.  I shot my shadow photo at Mayfair, an incredible mesh build done by the Celoe team, featuring main stores for Celoe, and Mon Tissu. You need to visit!
