Loving my outfit today. Thank you to an lar [poses] for making these awesome pose sets for Fit For a Princess. Well done! It made taking a picture so easy. I have absolutely no idea what he is wearing, but I know for a fact it is not current, so um, yeah. I will slap my own hand for that. If I remember to ask him later, I will update.

Izzie’s has showered us with some winter essentials. Previously, the store released a pose set called Snowball Fight, and I’m highlighting it again because it is a great set to use for winter, especially if you have some friends to group up with too. Izzie’s also released a Snowball Hit series at The Dressing Room Fusion for cheap. It includes snowball hits to the face and body; some of which have animated expressions of worry or crying. This series in conjunction with the aforementioned pose series ends up creating a series of hysterical pose sequences. Also, if you are out playing in the snow, don’t forget your earmuffs. Izzie’s has released a brand new set of fuzzy earmuffs to keep the frostbite away.
I finally got around to Geeks’n’Nerds and found a few things to stuff in my inventory. I personally loved Ison’s sweater and shirt combination. It can be worn as a dress or over some pants. The dress comes with a hud to change the color of the shirt underneath the sweater too. I also picked up the glasses available because they were cute and nerdier than any other glasses I own already.
Villena has put out plethora of new items recently, but I just needed some pants, and their newest pair sports a high waist, skinny leg, and an optional plus size butt version. You can’t see my butt here because this version wasn’t functional with my long top, but you really do need to go demo them to see the booty.
Finally, I finished off my outfit with a pair of shoes that is completely inappropriate for a snowfight by LaRoo. I’ve been slightly obsessed with their shoes recently. I love how super high they are, and this pair, although not that great in a snow fight, works well for the winter months because of the closed toe and overall design.

I’ve taken a step back from blogging as much because I really wanted to focus on some other things, but then, Collabor88 started today. I just had to go shopping crazy, and then show them all to you. There are so many well done and beautiful items. One of my favorites this round was the bohemian islet dress/shirt from u.f.o. I love it. I am so glad someone decided to make something like this in SL. It is the kinda thing you wear for days just because you feel pretty in it. With the shirt version, I opted for some denim shorts from Decoy because they were a tad bit longer and could peek out a bit more. I tried a few other shorts and they were either too short or stuck out at the wrong spots.
I’m so happy ISON made shoes for my flat SLink feet. I have been purchasing high heels in everything, but it is nice to have a flat style to switch in. The sandal style is versatile so you can wear it with dresses or a casual top and jeans.

If someone has not put together this outfit yet, I will be shocked. They are adorable together. You can find the Fashionably Dead Maxi Skirt and Just Frills top by Aux at Collabor88. You can also pick up D!va’s new hair, Sayaka3, and Glam Affair’s new Europa skin tone, Margot, there as well.
My eyes are a new release by Ikon, and I really loved the color Starfall in his new series Vanity Eyes. Finally, Ison released a new Scout Boho bag not too long ago that I think finished off my outfit perfectly. The bag comes in all sorts of colors. I picked up a chocolate brown one as well. Three pose options are included with the purse. Sorry to be all choppy and on the fly, but life happens!

Okay, so like so many others, I too have been mesmerized by the creations at Collabor88 this round. There was one small problem. It was really hard to pick just a few things. I wanted to bunch it all up and throw it into my inventory. I had a bit of a hard time seeing some of it because even with wondering around for a while, the whole place was gray. I think my computer is hating me or I guess it just could be that everyone else was there too, but I could not get anything to rez. Talk about shopping nightmare. So, I try my best to navigate (or appear somewhat intoxicated as a clumsily tried to find my way around) to a corner just so I could grab some demos.
Once I got home, I tried this dress by Ison. Okay, I stopped demoing, and immediately knew I wanted to blog this piece first. It is so classic and simple and lovely and elegant. While I did love this piece, the sheer layer made it hard to photograph in certain locations because it would blend into the horizon and the folds in the dress didn’t show up as nicely when you were just walking around normally, so I might have (I did) smooth those out in Photoshop. For daily wear, this dress is absolute perfection, and I can see myself wanting to wear this dress over and over again just so I can feel purty all the time.

I have to be honest here. I kept trying to take pics of me in this adorable outfit, but my butt got in the way. Every single time I thought I had a good snap…boom. My butt. In. Every. Shot. So, I have decided to roll with it.
Making these bootilicious shorts would be Lenox Co., a new brand. I actually think they have a fantasy brand, but this brand is more mainstream. On my flickr, it told me these shorts were at Vintage Fair, which they might in all honestly be, but I couldn’t find them there, so I instead checked out their mainstore. They had the shorts there as well. It also said it would feature more menswear-I know the men need more stuff too! The shorts were awesome. The alpha was okay. I actually had to make my own alpha for them.
The rest of my outfit comes from Collabor88. I must say I am seriously lovin’ on the shoes from ISON–so detailed. I loved the colors and style of the jacket by Boom. Elikatira did an outstanding job with both hairs at Collabor88. I finished off my outfit with a little lipstick from Adore&Abhor.
Lastly, don’t miss out on the Kyoot sale! Almost everything is 50L!
…and just to prove that every shot was a booty shot. Seriously. Some love for those shorts.
