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.
My poses in the post are from Diesel Works. My hair is from Tableau Viviant while my skin and head piece come from Glam Affair. 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. My skirt is from Boom and the shoes are from Just Designs.. and all of that you can get at this Months Collabor88 along with many other beautiful things!
Don’t look now
I’m fading away
Into the gray of my mornings
Or the blues of every night
Is it that my nails
Or maybe the corn
on my second little piggy
Things keep popping out
on my face or of my life
It seems no matter how
I try I become more difficult
I am not an easy woman
They have asked
the psychiatrists . . . psychologists . . .
politicians and social workers
What this decade will be
There is no doubt . . . it is

I am still overwhelmed (in a good way over all the awesome stuff at Collabor88 this round so I wanted to do another post! Most things in this post you can get at this round at Collabor88. I am sitting inside Trompe Loeil’s Cabin that is available at the event, and Trompe Loeil also made this chair and couch in my post. It is very cute and has about a billion pose sits.
I am wearing the Take on me hair by Clawtooth, and I kinda sang the song in my head just now when I typed that. My skin and nails are from Izzie’s for Collabor88 and this Geanna skin is gorgeous as well as the nails. I was super impressed. My shirt is from Nylon Outfitters and I love the lace and the bow in the back which if you look down at my last photo you can see. My heart shaped clock necklace is from Maxi Gossamer and my boots are from Monso. All of what I mentioned you can get at Collabor88, as well as the stockings over the fireplace which are from Commoner.
Yesterday I was talking to an old friend who has started up his furniture business back up in SL. It’s really worth a look because this couch that I’m featuring is only 8 prims and 199L and it’s so freaking cute. The tea couch from .lame furniture can be found in world or here on the market place. It’s a fun and brightly colored couch that goes well with the madness of my gacha items that I’m about to show you. The table showcasing the lovely vintage head form Nylon Outfitters can also be found at .lame.
I also want to mention that the skybox that I am using for this post can be found at this month’s Collabor88 from floorplan.
Most of the furniture used such as the futon, the chairs table and birds painting, couch and tables are from .lame furniture. Most stuff is mesh and low prim, and even the sculpt stuff is low prim. All the fun accessories and stuff are from the Arcade Gacha and I’ve tried to list all the ones that I’ve used in the tags but if you have a particular question about something feel free to IM me in world!
May 8th, Collabor88 began again and the theme for this cycle is Daydream. Several of your favorite designers came together and made some beautiful things for this round. I love this hammock set from Cheeky Pea which is a total steal for the coming summer days. It also comes with a table, books and tea for two and a ton of cute poses.
Speaking of poses, Adorkable made some totally cute poses for this round of Collabor88. I love this dress from Nylon Outfitters.. it’s sheer in the right places and very dreamy. Clawtooth made its first mesh hair and it’s gorgeous. Glamazon, a perfect name for a beautiful hair. The feather necklace is from Yummy! All of this that I’ve mentioned you can get at Collabor88.
I love love love you Collabor88 thank you for the continued awesomeness.
So, almost everything in the post that I am wearing I found at Collabor88. The beautiful vintage slip dress from Nylon Outfitters, the pearl necklace from Yummy which is even prettier on.. the Elikatira hair in “Soft” and the furniture set in this post from Lisp.. and this standing pose from Marukin. Most of these items are only 88L each.. so really it’s a steal!
I don’t know what else to say except for I love Collabor88, and I think that each month the designers involved go above and beyond and really amaze me with each new month.. it just seems to keep getting better!
This is the first of many posts you will be seeing from me about the Collabor88 project that is officially launching on 8/8. Now some people may be wondering what Collabor88 is, this is a nice explaination:
“Collabor88 is a fashion forward destination, where the most well loved content creators in SL get together to bring shoppers a superb selection of their well crafted merchandise at approachable, low prices. Collabor88 Merchandise is changed & updated each month on the 8th.”
I was honored to be chosen as a blogger for this project. 8 is actually my lucky number and there are some amazing designers behind this project. Don’t believe me look at this list:
