Rebirth and ISON Collabor88 Exclusives!

Previously posted @ DEMENTED DIVA.

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 of ISON. 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 and grab these STUNNING MUST HAVE items ASAP!
These fabulous shoes that I am wearing are from David Freeman of JUST DESIGN. They are called Lucy and are Seasons Story exclusive this month! These shoes are fully customizeable via HUD, allowing one to change the colors of the shoe, platform, sole and metals. There is also a sock option too! Please make sure you do yourself a favor and check these out too!
The stunning over-sized Maylea Clutch that I am holding is another April Collabor88 exclusive from Gyorgyna Larnia of LaGyo. They are available in a ton of pretty pastel tones and prints. Do not forget to grab these, since they are the perfect Spring accessory. 
I also adore this beautiful Gold Rose Pendant, which was created by Polyester Partridge of (Yummy). And you guessed it! This is an April Collabor88 exclusive too! Make sure you do not miss it!

This lovely low hanging chignon hair style is called Fleur and is from Truth Hawks. This is yet another April Collabor88 exclusive and comes with this gorgeous texture change flower accessory. You can choose to wear the hair with the flowers or alone. Make sure you demo this style ASAP!
This stunning skin is obviously from aida Ewing of -Glam Affair-. This latest skin is called, Brandi and is a Cutie Moon Fair exclusive. Brandi comes in 6 beautiful and youthful make-ups and is available 4 skin tones (Artic, Asia, America and Jamaica). Each skin also comes in 13 different brow colors (8 regular shades and 5 pastel colors) and a no brow option too! There are also 2 nose options (on tattoo), 2 lip glosses (on tattoo) and 12 lip colors (on tattoo). Make sure you demo this skin right away!

ISON and May’s Collabor88!

Previously posted @ DEMENTED DIVA.

There are sill a few more days left of May’s Collabor88, so please make sure you stop by and check-out all the amazing 50’s vintage/rockabilly styles! One of my favorite ensembles from this round, is also from one of my all time favorite designers – Harry Hyx of ISON! He created this fabulous Crop Panel Tee and High Waist Pleat Skirt. Both of these flirty streamlined pieces, can be worn separately or together (like I did below), and come in nice array of prints and colors.

I could not resist wearing these super sexy Sophia Heels, which are also a May Collabor88 exclusive this month. They were created by the talented Betty Doyle of Ingenue. Like most of her recent shoe releases, there are made to be worn with Slink’s mesh feet!
Since I was going with a vintage nautical themed look, I had to pair this outfit with Gyorgyna Larnia’s, of LaGyo, Mary Necklace (with swallows and anchors), Mary Earrings (anchors) and Mary Bow Bandanna! Gyo’s whole Mary Collection is to die for, so make sure you run and grab the whole collection before May’s Collabor88 ends!
Gala Phoenix of CURIO has been releasing a ton of skin lately! For May’s Collabor88, she released two sunning new skins lines. For this post, I am wearing her new Cherry skin. It comes in a ton of gorgeous skin tones and 4 yummy make-ups! It fits perfectly with May’s retro theme!
Speaking of amazing retro creations, moca Loup of tram, made this brilliant hairstyle for May’s Collabor88 too! In fact, she created 4 lovely styles that you must demo ASAP!

ISON for June C88

Previously posted @ DEMENTED DIVA.

I have couple more quickie post for June’s Collabor88 before it comes to end. There were so many amazing creations, as always. Harry Hyx of ISON, always creates the most incredible designs, especially for each cycle of Collabor88. June was no exception, I am absolutely in LOVE with this gorgeous relaxed Ruffle Bottom Button Up shirt!

This fabulous Button Up shirt can be worn so many ways! It can be worn by itself, while lounging around the house or pool, or with soft cotton pants for a chic casual weekend look. Regardless of how you choose to wear it, it is wardrobe MUST HAVE! So are Harry’s Avery Strap Boots,which are sexy studded and ankle high. I love the soft suede texture that is perfectly complimented by large metal buckles! So make sure you run over to June’s  Collabor88 before it ends! 
 I finally started catching-up a bit with stuff and was able to finally blog a few amazing new items from the fairly new brand, PlethoraPlethora brings to the grid some of he most original, quirky and brilliant items that you can find! From creations that you have been dying to see inworld to stuff you never even thought you would need (but now must have), Plethora has it! They are participating in Rhapsody right now and created these awesome CD Player Headphones, which I am wearing on my head. They weren’t actually designed to be worn on my head, but the items were so easy to modify that I could make it work! I also have this beautifully rendered CD Player, which is also from Plethora, that lets you eject, play, stop, etc… by simply pushing the button. You know, just like how a real CD player would work! LOL! Sometimes I wonder if I make sense. You can also link the headphones that I am wearing on my head into the CD player that is shown on the sofa. There are also speakers you can buy, which allow the same linking and unlinking of parts. Pretty neat, huh! Just a suggestion, make sure you make a copy before modifying any items. Both items come in a ton of fabulous colors and make the perfect accessories, home decor pieces or photo props. So, please make sure you check them out at Rhapsody ASAP!
