We are using items from Fifty Linden Friday! The cute ‘MURICA themed bikini’s from Boom and this pose from !bang which also has a male version for three guys.

The girls are wearing hair from Exile at Summerfest and my hair is from Spellbound. The girls are also wearing suckers from the Sugar Garden that are a group gift. I took these photos at Baja Norte where you can pay a small fee to join a group to rez poseballs and such.

Hope that you all have a happy and safe holiday!

Rhapsody opens

roses

I went to Rhapsody yesterday right around the time it opened with the help of my handy-dandy letmein hud. I saw this dress that I’ve wanted to get from Pixicat. I love the materials on it and I got the matching metal armbands.

I needed a few more accessories though so while I was there I got this hair from Milk, this rose head piece from Noodles and these shoes from Boom. The freckle layer that I am wearing came with the hair. My skin is Cassia from Glam Affair from Summerfest. My pose is from !bang.

Fresh Crab

So, it’s been a busy last week with the Men’s Dept. opening on the 5th and Collabor88 opening on the 8th. I decided to intermingle the two and be a little naughty-nautical.

I picked this dress from Boom, and this hair from Lamb as well as this Shelf featuring the fresh crab from Lark (there is also a version where you can add your own textures and these are shelf is color change) that you can get at Collabor88.

I am also featuring items from the Men’s Dept. The pose that I am using is from !bang, the chair is from Trompe Loeil, the shirt is from DROP and the shorts are from Casa Del Shai.

A little less conversation…

Adventures in Industrial Chic for Collabor88

I have to admit, when I first found out the theme for November’s round of Collabor88 I couldn’t imagine what people might make. But as I experiment more and more with some of the pieces from this round, I dig it.

This dress and metal hair bow are from Katat0nik. I’m really happy that Katat0nik is still making amazing things. I can remember them from my much younger days in SL. I fell in love with this dress and bow as soon as I saw it.

These boots too – from Collabor88 guest this month Beetlebones. I used to have a pair of boots like this when I was a teen and I wore them until they fell apart pretty much. This necklace from Boom, which is so detailed and intricate has fast become one of my favorites as well.

I’m also very glad to see Lamb back at Collabor88 which is who made the hair that I am wearing in this post!

I have on the accessory set from Yummy which is an umbrella and a pair of sunglasses.. I was feeling whimsical and wore both!

My New Romance at Collabor88

To describe a blossoming new romance is divine, to see it in living color for this month’s Collabor88 is like poetry in motion!

Sugar Heartsdale came up with this design concept “New Romance for Collabor88 for the month of March as she was the winner of the contest, and what a lovely concept it is! Oh, and let me mention that there is a brand new Collabor88 build! I really love this brand new build too, it’s open and easier for me to find things.

I love to mix as many Collabo88 pieces as I can into my photos so let me tell you who made what.

The Pergola is from Floorplan while the decorations such as the tables, pizza chairs and bunting are from Scarlet Apple.

I am wearing a lace top from Nylon Outfitters, along with the silver mesh nails that I did not get a good picture of, but they are very pretty. The adorable camera necklace is from Yummy.
