After many days of trying to get to Collaber88 I finally made it! I only grabbed a few things to start, these should hold me over until it’s a littler easier to get back in.
I saw this Celoe dress on someone else and have been dying to try it on every since. So it was the first thing I snagged when I finally got in. It’s so cute and I already have ideas for other outfits using it.
My shoes are from Tulip and also at this month’s C88. They come in so many colors it was really hard to choose which ones to get. My first thought was black as usual, but I end up with so many shoes in black. I have been trying to branch out more with some color. I ended up getting a red-ish leather looking color thinking it can add color, but still a natural neutral so can go with a lot of things.
Tulip also has two other style shoes out at C88, I might have to go get them as well. It will be a chance to get some different colors.
I also picked up the Lyra necklace from Maxi Gossamer. You can change the chain color and there are different stone colors you can change on touch.

My new favorite hair of the moment is Tamora from Chemistry. I love the fluffy waviness of it, for some reason it reminds me of Hermione and her wild hair. I had not been to Chemistry in a while so it was a great surprise to see all the new hair textures and the very large packs the hair is sold in now. So much variety! I love this new trend with hair creators and having a bunch of colors sold in pack on a HUD. It’s so much easier on the inventory not having all those separate hairs. Also in a lot of the packs now there tends to be more than just one hair color I wear so I like the feeling of getting more use for my money.
I made it to FaMESHed this week and boy are there a ton of great things for this month’s round. One of my favorite buys was this cardigan from Mutresse. I don’t think I’ve ever heard of them before. But then some times I can put on blinders to brands I am not familiar with. Anyway, this cardigan is so cute and well fitting! At first I was a little ehhh paying nearly 400L for just a sweater, but then I realized it was not really just ONE sweater. It includes all options! There are 24 fabric options for the sweater in a few different patters and colors and plains, plus 7 color options for each the buttons, the trim and the sheer part. There are so many combinations one could make with this, I am happy I bought it now.

I love this new hair from Truth! He has updated all his textures and added a bunch of new ones. My instant favorite new color pack is Colours as it’s full of all the fun colors and most important like 4 different pink hair textures! Another great thing he’s done is to reorganize how his more natural hair colors are package. Each pack has the usual natural hair in various shades, but he’s also included dip dyed version right in the packs. So a brown pack would have different shades of browns as well as a brown hair with dipped ends of pink, blue, etc. I like this because I love wearing dip dyed hairs, but I also like having just the normal colors for occasions where dip dyed doesn’t look right. Usually I would only be able to do this by buying multiple packs to get ll the variety I wanted, but now it’s easier than ever to get a range of hairs in just one pack. At least at Truth.
I loved the hair so much it inspired me to even enter the Truth Model Search. That’s my entry above. If you want to enter you still have till the 1st of June to take a picture of you wearing a hair from the new Truth shop and enter it in the Flickr group for the contest. I figure it’s a long shot, there are so many amazing pictures entered, but what can it hurt? Nothing to lose.
I am finally getting around to blogging the supporting outfit I had together for the picture. Even though I planned from the start to only have a waist up picture for the contest entry I felt the need to put a full outfit together.
Plus the second thing in this post I love is this ruffle corset top from Ingenue! It comes in a bunch of different fun and summery color combos, it was so hard to pick just one.
I felt like being a little simple with the rest of the outfit and just paired the bright top with some jeans and nude pumps.

When mesh came out I was a little iffy about people rushing to use it for clothing. I didn’t think for most things it would work well because there is no way to edit it.. not even to adjust the placement of it. Also because the mesh item would be made to fit the creator and I definitely don’t have the same body as most creators as I always have to adjust the things I buy.
Well I am here to eat my words! I am fully on the mesh clothing bandwagon now and all thanks to these great pants from Celoe. In my opinion they have to be the single most awesome pants in existence! Celoe is one of a collective of creators to use a standard sizing chart for mesh clothing. The data for the standard sizing was taken right from us the consumers and more to my amazement… I fit into one of the sizes! I only had to fiddle with my hips by about one or two points, so little that no one but me would ever know I changed. I seriously love these pants so much I never want to take them off. I also wish the makers of Celoe would now make a wide legged denim pant. *hinthintsmile*
Today I decided to dress down the trousers by wearing sneakers instead of heels. I added in one of my film crew shirts from Friday and threw on a nice bright yellow cardigan from Tres Blah. I have a soft spot for sweaters and cardigans and I think before too long I will own every color of these ones from Tres Blah. They are so cute and a perfect length.
My necklace I got at a past colabr88 from Fashionably Dead and now i wish I bought more because I have not seen it in the main store. (Maybe I am not looking in the right spot.. if someone sees them in the store please let me know!) I am usually not a big accessories person and tend to not like jewelery in Secondlife at all other than a few piercings. This necklace has changed all that. Or maybe it’s only for this necklace I have changed my mind. I can’t really say what it is about it that I love so much either. Perhaps because it reminds me of a broken off crystal necklace I ha as a kid. What ever it is.. I have been finding ways to incorporate this necklace into a lot of my outfits since buying it.
Gosh I didn’t realize how much spending I had done lately till writing this. My hair is also new! I used to always wear pink hair and I think it’s high time I went back to it. Picked this hair up at Boon along with a couple more. I really like a lot of their newer hairs, I will be making a trip back there as soon as I have more funds.
If you are in need of a new skin I highly suggest checking out Leafy. She has a few different ones out… today I am wearing the newest one called Nova. They are all gorgeous and all I have been wearing for the last 3 months!
