Who’s favorite time of year is Fall??? THIS GIRL.
I am so freakin’ pleased it is September, and while in RL that means it is still summer in my part of the world – at least in SL I can just presto-chango – - FALL.
TURTLENECKS AND SCARVES Y’ALL! Turtlenecks and scarves.
Oh, I got off subject I think maybe – point being that this round of Collabor88 is all about FALL. What a great way to roll in the season, a whole event full of wonderful new pieces for your wardrobe and home.
I’m wearing Hair, Skin, Dress, Boots and Necklace all from this round of Collabor88 – I can tell you you definitely need every last item!
I have two amazing new home items to share with you!
First is this home, which has a very industrial/warehouse look and feel to it. While it has that inspiration, it still remains a warm inviting home. The brick accents, and warm wood flooring really do make the space cozy. It isn’t a tremendous home either. I personally prefer spaces this size that I can comfortably decorate and fill up with all my fave little trinkets. The covered porch on the back gives you a great opportunity to take your fall decor outdoors. And all of the glorious windows are an SL photographer’s dream for beautiful interior lighting. A fun little bonus is the exterior catwalk that leads up to a great rooftop! If you have a small parcel that really takes advantage of the vertical space!
The other fab new piece I have to share is this gorgeous antique bed. I love the quilted bedding on it and the frame is really interesting and adds a bit of romance to it – if the lace throw blanket and floral pillows hadn’t already! =P Bonus is, not only is it a beautiful looking bed but it is packed with poses that are really well done!
Not sure HOW…but somehow… I completely forgot to blog this!!
I did a shot of all the fantastic things I could squeeze into one place from The Arcade <333

2 cute items NOT from Arcade but that I used because the suited the scene so well - 11th Hour (River Stromfield)’s Strike bookends/books & Seven (Agustkov)’s True Love Sign
SHOP THE ARCADE!!
How did this horrible thing happen? I cannot figure it out… I find myself… EAGERLY awaiting the opening of The Arcade. *sobs*
I blame Sophia Harlow.
But my goodness, how can I not pace eagerly as all the creators set up their machines..and stare in lust after all of the ads? All of these lovely home items that will fill up my space with lots of tiny knick-knacks?! Must. Have. Them. All.
I am fortunate enough to already have ALL of two of my favorites I was gawking at on flickr. The top image is Second Spaces (Elle Kirshner)’s Craft Set… ALL of it (minus the chair and lamp) are goodies you can pour every last linden into her machine for. They are SO well done and just absolutely perfect. I want them in my RL tbh.
The 2nd image…you guys know how obsessive I am about cramming all my spaces with books here and there?? Now I have an entire NEW collection of unique looking books…and if that wasn’t enough Lark (Sienia Trevellion) even made a matching bookcase with step stool and curtain!!
I am sure I will have more to share, let the hoarding begin.
The Arcade opens September 1st, don’t break your piggy banks yet!
Since I am a blogging maniac today….here is another!
This lovely top I am wearing is a Gacha item that will be available at the upcoming 24 event. It is really darling, I love the cut on it as well as the collar…and it looks super cute with my new skirt!
I also want to mention this fountain bridge which is also going to be available at The 24. Not only is it impeccably crafted but it is packed with fantastic poses – singles and couples. Love love loveeee it!
Definitely be sure to visit The 24 – it opens on August 23rd. For more information and details visit their blog: Siren Productions
I hate that I take pics to blog and am so busy that it takes me like a week before I even get around to sharing the credits!
BUT….at any rate I’m finally getting to this lovely bedroom I’ve pieced together. The bed was the focal point/inspiration piece here. My absolute favorite colors are these coral/turquoise mixes. I just adore this bed…the patterns and colors are perfection for me! You can find the bed at this month’s round of The Liaison Collaborative – Garden!
I decided on the coral wall color and then to add little touches of the turquoise all around the room to tie it all together.
Hope the space inspires you!
I really don’t have much to say. I mean, the pic is self-explanatory isn’t it?
I’m so in love with these soon to be released Bax boots that I’ve decided to change my wardrobe to all short skirts and well… not much else.
They are mesh, they are heavenly, and they come in lots of great colors. But ohhh the black…
I don’t think you can handle this….
I haven’t shared a new home in like…weeks. *GASP*
So here is a little peek at my lovely new living room, cozy isn’t it? What set this whole room rolling was the cozy new couch I just received from a new to me store. I really really love the shape of the couch, and the throw pillows are in a great paisley print. Makes it so easy to match it up with all sorts of other furniture.
I love to really fill up a room with lots and lots of my favorite things, makes you feel like you really are stopping by my house!
Other cute mentions – the chairs! OMG I love them, they are so well crafted, and they’ve got oodles of prints and you can have it with or without the pillow! Also the great looking book shelf, very original and eye-catching!
This is the house as well, and it comes with the pool and foundation area with plants etc. I actually recolored the house, and I suggest trying it to come up with something to suit your needs. It is lovely as is, but I always like something with a bit more color!
The home is available at this month’s Collabor88 – shocking.. imagine me blogging about Collabor88?!
I think I could blog items from this round of Collabor88 for the rest of my SLife really.
How amazing is this dress? and hair, and jewelry and shoeeeesss?? Even the piano in the background – all of it from Collabor88!
The piano has some super cute poses in it too, and it even plays music – adorb!
I think I mentioned how much I loved the new Gatsby movie, and really this round of collab makes me think of it so much. So I nagged Alon to come and help me recreate a Gatsby moment! I don’t know if you’ve heard the soundtrack but it happens to be pretty phenomenal also – I was listening to the version of Crazy In Love by Emeli Sande that she did for the movie while setting it up. Certainly helped for the mood
This seems pretty quick as far as my lately lazy self has been concerned. Two blog posts on Collabor88 and it has only been open for 2 days???
I love so much of everything that is available this round because this theme is just fantastic. I recently went to see The Gatsby and I wish I was living in that time. All the clothing from that period is so glitzy and exciting – isn’t it?
With all that in mind how great is this dress and the perfect hair and shoe accessories, don’t you think?
Hair, Dress, Shoes, Pose, & Jewelry – All from this round of Collabor88 – Shop!
