Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
Don’t you just love those lazy days? The ones where you don’t really have to get dressed, you can just bum around all day? Well, Mon Tissu just came out with the new Oversized Shirt perfect for those leisurely days. I was hoping for more colour options but there are enough to make it hard to choose just one. I went with yellow because I’m on a colour kick lately. I’ve noticed most of my newish clothing is either pink or a bland colour like beige or grey so I need to add a little something something every once in a while. I’ve paired it up with Maitreya‘s Stefani pants ’cause come on, nothing says lazy like sweat pants.
To be honest, I didn’t know Collabor88 had themes. But looking back at previous rounds, I guess that makes sense. This theme for this round is kitsch. You probably don’t know what that is. Most people don’t. Basically, it’s ugly knick-knacks that your gam-gam has around her house from the 50’s. I think anyway…. But back to C88, whether it’s kitsch or not, it’s kinda filled with floral prints and bright pastel colours. And awesomeness. Like EVERYTHING TEE*FY HAS OUT. The Chloe Slouchy Booties, Lovisa Ruffle Mini Skirt, and Rachel Ruffle Sweater come in a variety of colours and prints (aforementioned floral included). Maxi Gossamer is also getting in the kitsch mood with three new necklace sets, Juicy Lips rings, and bangles. I had to pick up the Robot Dream Ride set which includes a cute robot and a penny-farthing, both of which can be wore together or separate. Floorplan has some kitschy furniture out as well, including these Kitsch Wall Plates. I especially love the flamingo one and the DMX lyrics. So…kitschy.
I wanted to show you the Lua’s Cropped Shirt by The Secret Store available at April’s faMESHed. There are 9 designs, 4 color packs, and a demo available. I ask Lourdes Denimore (my female plurk crush) to pose with. I was floored when she actually said yes. Ok, I’m going to fangirl a little bit here but honestly, Lourdes is quite amazing. True, I don’t know her very well but she’s probably one of the most real people I’ve met on SL. Plus, she’s FAMOUS. *social climbs*
Oh, she’s also wearing Lua’s Cropped Shirt in a design I could never look that good in.
Decoy has this awesome Olivia blouse out at Collabor88. It’s available in 4 perfect spring colours (and I hope more will be available in the mainstore once C88 is over!) For 188L each, you get two versions, a “plain”…cotton? and a lace version. I loooooove the lace. You can’t really see it on the picture so I took a close up for you cause it’s just so pretty! Also from Decoy, the un/rigged mesh Izel Scarf. So cute! For 88L you get two rigged mesh versions (one is sheer) and an unrigged version. I also grabbed the Scalloped Shorts from Fashionably Dead which are sooooo well done and perfect to get you in the summer mood. The new round of Collabor88 starts on the 8th of each month so you still have time to go grab some awesome stuff!
