The Argrace hair, Crystal Line jewelry (with color change HUD) and the [k]rooms star can all be found at Japan Fair. I am so excited to see Argace doing a red hair color.

I did not get around to blogging Barnesworth Anubis’s fabulous 5th Avenue skybox when it was at Collabor88 last month, too sick to feel like moving from my old house. However, as soon as I razzed it, I knew I had to move into that gorgeous brownstone. It reminded me so much of my first apartment. In fact, it is almost identical, other than being much, much bigger, with 6 rooms instead of 4. But the big rooms with windows and glass doors are identical to the two big room in my old apartment, the big difference being that there was this small 8 foot space between the 2 big rooms and the bed room that was the bathroom/kitchen area. That house was built before refrigeration and the kitchen was 5 feet by 4 feet in size. Yes, space for a stove and a sink and an upright body. The cupboards and fridge were in the hallway! And what cupboard, they went from the top of the fridge to the 12 foot high ceiling. That meant I could stand underneath my kitchen cupboards and needed a tall ladder to reach the shelves. Yeah, good times!


The Barnesworth Anubis 5th Avenue skybox reminds me of my old apartment on St. Paul’s Grand Avenue – an avenue rich in history and full of wonderful brownstones.

This was our first apartment and my roommate and I had almost no furniture which lent itself to great parties since we never had to worry that something would get broken. We also had a closet that was about 4 feet wide and 28 feet long  (Yes, 28! It was like a cave and we needed a flashlight to see at the far end.) – long enough that when we had a party we could put every single breakable thing in storage. We would rent a keg and stick in a bed of ice in the tub and invite all the neighbors so no one would complain about the noise. We also invited the landlord, knowing he would not come under the assumption that if someone complained he would think – how bad could it be, they invited me? That was our strategy and it worked.


The Maitreya wrap dress for Collabor88 is a stunner and I want to wear every single color it comes in.

Before the party, we would borrow a friend’s car and drive out to Keebler’s where another friend worked in the office. She would let us in and show us to the trash where any pallet of crackers that bumped into something so a box got dinged was thrown out even if the other 300 boxes were untouched. There were always a few pallets of boxes of crackers. We would fill the trunk and back seat with assorted undamaged boxes and have more crackers than could possibly be eaten – all for the $5 it took to refill our friend’s gas tank.


ANE has wonderfully sassy strappy sandals and this gorgeous striped coat at Collabor88. The sandal do with Slink feet. The coat intersects with the dress between the shoulder blades in most poses, but that’s a small price to pay for such a gorgeous coat. It would work flawlessly with system clothing.

And so, on a Friday or Saturday night, we would throw open the glass doors, crank up the stereo (My roommate’s brother owned a high end stereo store and gifted her with amazing equipment.) and dance until we were practically sleeping standing up. It was kind of amazing, really, that we had such huge parties with so many drunk people and never had a big fight.


The Glam Affair skin for Collabor88 is as gentle as a watercolor. The Crystal Line jewelry set contains a two-part necklace, earrings and two bracelets that are all color-changing via a hud. I did not think that all colors worked equally well, but the pink and the green work very well.

Now I cannot imagine inviting 100 people into a small one bedroom apartment, but you know, in college you’re allowed to be an idiot – some of the time.
