An Ode to Collabor88


Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore,
So do fashionistas hasten to spend
Their lindens at the fabled store,
Where prices with an 8 must end.

Fashions released into the light,
Inspirations are monthly crowned.
So colors and styles do not fight
But work together in a colorful round.

Fashion’s flourish is on the eight.
And hordes descend to browse and buy
The sim is full if you are late.
But worthy shoppers, in delight do cry

“I made it in! I can browse to my heart’s content
Or, at least until all my lindens are spent.”

Yeah, I know. Don’t quit the day job.

Let’s be honest, we all look forward to the 8th. It’s not just that there is a monthly collection of fashion derring-do, but there’s a fascination in discovering how the different designers take the same inspiration and colors and produce so many very different results. This month, Collabor88 doyenne and Sea Hole designer, Drinkenstein Sorbet, was inspired by the warmer climes of India, producing the Pan Bahatt collection. The collection features a sexy, skimpy top and skirt in bold Indian prints and colors. However, coming from a cooler state, I decided to just wear the skirt. It’s strange, I know, but I feel a bit chilly when my avatar is not dressed for the weather. The skirt, though, is a delight and can be mixed with so many other things.


I chose to add a top from Boho Hobo and a sweater from Baiastice. I do so love this sweater because it has that worn-to-death falling off the shoulders shapelessness that all my favorite sweaters develop over time. It’s so very natural, casual and realistic. It looks loved. The ankle boots are also from Baiastice.


Here you get a better look at the tank and sweater as well as a good shot of the marvelous jewelry from Zaara. I know I have worn this quite a few times in the past few weeks, but that’s just because it is so stunning. The set comes with gold or silver findings. The hair is from Exile, released in mid-January and also has that casual look I really wanted.


The skin is PXL Creations Sophia with the smokey eye tattoo makeup. I am eager for this skin’s release in other tones as well as the Sunkissed and Olive released late last year.
