…makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind….
Love Seals and Croft and that song just felt like it fit this mood. Standing on the beach at Black Basalt Beach, a beautiful sim to just hang out or surf (or take pictures). This post is dedicated to the summer themed items at Collabor88, which just opened on June 8th.
So Gidge and I were going to go fishing for walleye, the Minnesota state fish. I don’t know if you can see it clearly, but that is a Minnesota boat, you can tell by the license. Walleye are the most delicious fish that have ever been eaten by anyone ever in the history of all mankind. That’s a fact. So, I am eager to get cracking and toss that line in the water. But where is Gidge?
I really don’t have much to say other than I’m loving everything from the new round of Collabor88. Seriously, every event should be rockabilly inspired. Of course, I might go broke so maybe that’s not such a good idea.

I hate naming my blog posts…. so what the heck.. it IS mostly purple! My ensemble today was inspired by the awesome events going on right now. Namely, Collabor88 and The Seasons Story. I finally managed to get in to both yesterday and did a little Linden damage to my pocketbook.
First, this lovely dress by Tee*fy, Julianna, at Collabor88. Great for any party or just a night of dancing and fun. I’ve also been enamored with the high feet from Slink and was VERY happy to see these new suede heels from Slink, the Ilse, available for the high feet in the store yesterday. The stitching and button detail are perfect. The nail polish is a fun addition, from Nine Inch Nails (available on the MP) in Zipper.
Wishing you all serenity, wishing you all peace, especially that inner peace some of us are still looking for and it seems so hard to find. Let’s not forget those who have nothing or no reason to celebrate, let’s not forget to share 🙂

I just love the sweater vest from Tee*fy for this round of Collabor88. My Mom would knit me one every year just like them, though she used this super-fine, lightweight yarn that was so soft. I loved them all. Azure Electricteeth layered the sweater vest with an oxford-cloth shirt though she didn’t tuck the shirt in which would have made my mom tsk-tsk and not let me out the door. She was a stickler! Continue reading →
Yesterday i visited Collabor88 and, after waiting for everything to rez properly, i was really amazed at the sight of so many beautiful creations. Not that normally i’m not amazed by C88 things, but it doesn’t happen often that i like almost the whole collection, like in this case or like the famous anniversary case. I grabbed all the demos i wanted and went back home to try them on, cause the place was too laggy to try demoing there.
Just one thing disappointed me, tee*fy‘s stuff wasn’t out yet. You know, tee*fy’s spot is the first one i put my eyes on each time i go visit C88.
This morning – my morning, when yankees are probably sleeping and the place should be less crowded haha! – i went back to buy the things i wanted and i finally saw that tee*fy’s items were out.
And i drooled over the Dakota Corset Gown which i purchased without even trying the demo on.
Wonderfully texturized, this is one of the most beautiful things i’ve seen recently on SL. This is a perfect example of mesh which i don’t often see on long dresses. Look at the way it “caresses ” the body with every movement, look at the perfectly irregular cut, look at the high front slit sensually showing the leg, look at the belt which stylishly completes the look.
Ahhh…Dakota, so sensual and elegant at the same time.
Gidge was so busy all weekend, COLLABOR88 plus the Arcade plus yard sales plus the normal blogger girl stuff, shopping, standing on a pose stand, shopping, standing on a pose stand, a wee bit of entertaining, well, she got tired and passed out in her new bed. I got this one at a yard sale and it’s cute, it’s at THE ARCADE. I’m not entire sure it’s me, but it’s a fun prop. Continue reading →
This is my favorite cycle of Collabor88 ever. While celebrating their 2nd anniversary, they are also celebrating the vibrant and daring fashions of the 1920s. While some designers stayed solidly in the era, others brought 1920’s sensibilities and details into 2013. Azure Electricteeth of Tee*fy gave us an updated, modern version of the 20s bringing the loose fit, the dropped waist and art deco details on the belt forward with a decidedly modern pair of separates.
Gidge sparked discussion the other day when she asked “Whyfor bloggest thou?” The general consensus is that people blog because they like it. That’s my reason for blogging, too. That’s also the obvious answer. Why would people spend hours on an unpaid hobby if they didn’t like it? However, I thought I might dig a little deeper and ask why I like it. Where are the rewards that make it worthwhile and pleasurable. Continue reading →
