The Twist!

SL Fashion Week (712-718) & Collabor88 items --display

I don’t know why the latest collection from Collabor88 & SL Fashion Week was screaming “get up Glory and do the twist.” Maybe it’s because we are smack dead in the middle of summer and having fun in the sun while wearing a bright yellow dress and lime green jewelry is totally appropriate.  🙂 Anyway, don’t let this round of SL Fashion Week pass you by, I scored on Pure Poison Candy Pistachio Jewelry Set for only 70L.  I paired my new necklace with Baiastice Ayoun dress in Yellow (told you I couldn’t pass up anything yellow), and Glam Affair Lulu skin both from Collabor88.  To complete my lemon lime ensemble I used BSD Fashion Blogger Bag in yellow croc from Lyfe of Style, now available at the main store.  Lots more fun items from C88 I will blog more about later, but don’t forget to stop by SL Fashion Week before they close on Thursday, July 18 @1pm SLT.

Spring has Sprung!

Spring flowers are popping up to grow tall in the glow of the day.  Easter is around the corner, eggs are being dyed, and its beautiful day.  Gloria discovered an enchanted forest (Dimrill Dale) on her easter egg hunt and stops to enjoy the wonder that surrounds her while wearing her new find from Collabor88.

Collabor88 is a monthly event that runs from the 8th of each month and ends the 8th of the following month (March 8th to April 8th).  Some of the most loved designer participate in the super bargain basement monthly event offering specials for 88, 188 or 288L.  I purchased a few cute spring ensemble that I’m sure I’ll wear over and over again.

Let’s start with the canvas, Glam Affair Amberly Artic in Candy 01 (blue) for 188L.  A side note, Glam Affair recently released the Amberly skin series at the main store for 1,000L and is hosting a contest closing Friday.  I have been wearing my Amberly skin selection around the grid and will blog more about the Glam Affair Amberly contest shortly.

I also purchased D!va Flora hair for 188L, flowers in hair optional.  I’m not sure what it is with me but I can’t seem to pass up a opporunity to buy crazy skin or make-up. 🙂  The LaGyo Isabella jewelry set screamed spring to me, so I needed to make another trip to Collabor88 to pick them up.  Each piece was sold separately, total $364.  I had actually tried to get to C88 early but the sim was either full or crashed my viewer several times.  I felt pretty luck to get in this time and score great spring deals.

I’m pretty sure I will return and buy at least half of the store that’s left.  🙂 When I do, I’ll blog about it and include photos of my finds.  Some upcoming blogs post will be Glam Affair Amberly skin contest, The Arcade Gatcha event & gifts, BLD WingTastic new release, and St. Patrick’s Day hunt items and party details.  Till then!

Steals at Collabor88

I’m a late bloomer.  I’ve been shopping like a mad women for a little over a year and a half on SL.  In the real world, I pride myself on finding steals and deals, some might call me a bargain hunter.  I have been known to crawl under tables at after Christmas sales, or wake up at ungodly hours of the morning, only to stand in line for a Black Friday special, and yes, maybe once or twice I’ve barnstormed warehouse basements for that perfect piece. One of my intentions on writing this blog was to provide a resource for sales, specials and freebies.  I found a great store that falls perfectly in this category, even if it’s not a great mystery to all of you “in the know.”  Collabor88 is a fashion forward destination, where the most well-loved creators in SL get together to bring shoppers a superb selection of their merchandise for low prices.  I scored quite a few deals for 88L or 188L. A new cycle is changed on the 8th of each month.  I can’t wait to share some of my finds with you, because there is still time for you to grab them, as well!

First up is Glam Affair Laurel skin for 188L.  I was at Glam yesterday and the regular price for their skin is 1,000L….the special at Collabor88 is an amazing deal!  I paired the skin with Truth Hollana Brown hair collection for 88L.  A few blogs post ago, I took snaps of the faded and blonde Hollana collection I purchased.  I couldn’t resist the sale, so I purchased a few more colors, I think this style is so adorable.  Truth hair sells for 250L, the bow is a marketplace find and the location is House of Fox.

I paired the hair and skin with the (NO) Ivy Drape Dress, Yellow/Green I got for 88L.  I used a Finesmith necklace and CHoOoz booties in lime green to complete the look.

Another item I purchased was the D!va Hair Mayumi3 for 188L.  There are two styles in the pack with four flower options.  Mayumi3 hair has a braid across the top and two side buns with the option of flowers in braid & buns, only flower in braid, only flowers in buns or no flowers at all.  The two hair style options are side swept bangs or parted bangs.  The Mayumi3 hair is very Boho spring and a compete departure from my normal style.  I wore the Glam Affair Laurel skin and paired it with a soft yellow Boho dress and jewelry set. Photo taken at the D!va mainstore sim.

I also thought the Erinyes Wings in Dragon by BOOM were something I might be able to use for future contest or photo shoots, and at 88L a bargain that I had to bring home.  I paired the wings with Collabor88 group gift, Cassia Glitter mini dress by The Sea Hole in Peridot (Army green).  Join the free group for future notices and to get this cute mini which comes in five other colors.  Pictures taken at The Garden of Shambhala.

And last but not least, I purchased the Glam Affair Oly hat in Black with red branches for 88L.  I paired the fascinator with an asian cheongsam from the marketplace and Truth Hollana hair in lava part of the fades collection. I found the perfect location and one I would encourage all to check out for a tranquil and serene escape, the Mieville Asian Gardens.
