If you had read my previous post, then you know I had been away for the last week. My Grandmother, who I was very close to, had unexpectedly passed away. These last months in general had been fairly rough for me, which was mainly due to health issues and other RL stuff. However, after having lost such an important part of my life, it all seems quite trivial in contrast. It feels as if a huge part of myself has died. I had spent most of the last week running around non-stop and spending time with family down at my Grandmother’s house in Florida. The extra family support helped soften the blow and gave me some much needed comfort. Unfortunately, now I am back home and faced with the reality of it all. This has to be one of the toughest things I have ever had to deal with. I just have been pushing myself to go through the motions of being human, trying to keep my brain occupied. For the most part, I find myself in constant state of reflection that triggers thoughts of things I need to change about myself. Hopefully, this will result in some sort of positive transformation….
Now that I said all of that, I will change the subject.
In much happier news, the April cycle of Collabor88
has been well underway, bringing us a palette of watercolor inspired pastels mixed with romantic and flirty Spring creations. One of my favorite ensembles from this round, has to be from the seriously talented Harry Hyx
. He created this lovely delicate Silk Camisole
, as well as this perfectly pleated Midi Skirt
. Both of these gorgeous separates are beautifully rendered and are available in ton of pastel and neutral colors. The Silk Camisole
comes with 2 style options – regular neckline and a low cut version. The Pleated Midi Skirt
also comes with 2 style options – belted with a HUD that changes the belt’s shade and also without a belt. Both of these separates, which are Spring wardrobe staples, can be worn together or mixed and matched with other items in your inventory. So make you run over to Collabor88
