Welcome to the Jungle

Living in Florida, one kind of has to enjoy the tropical side of things. For me, it’s all encompassing. Tropical, jungle, beachy, you name it. The colors, the vibe and the feeling of relaxation I get when I’m surrounded by the nature of it all. Even my homes in both worlds are tropical inspired!

With that being said, it’s the 7th anniversary of Collabor88 and I am completed tickled by the ‘Rainforest’ theme of this round. With extra designers to celebrate, I found tons of gorgeous new pieces for my already overloaded SL inventory.

Osmia has released a sexy summer bikini with optional on/off sleeves and the top provides the perfect pairing to the shorts from Belle Epoque. Tropical rings from Astralia and my headpiece from LaGyo are a match made for the islands and added the perfect pop of red against all of this lush greenery.

I am also loving all of the new releases from Glam Affair. ‘Apple’ is available in the mainstore, and the fierce and thick brows are a statement all on their own.

Love Cara

This Bad Girl

Bad Girl

It’s been a crazy busy week for me, so I don’t have much to report on today, but I did want to squeeze at least one post in before the end of the week.

I am loving this set by Pseudo, at Kustom9. I am not really sure what to classify it as- lingerie or swimsuit, so I added some combat style boots, visor and hair from Foxy and dared to hit the streets as is. I haven’t received any complaints so far!

Glam Affair has also released new skin ‘Patty’ for Uber. I am still in the air about the new tones. I love them, but my heart still beats for ‘America’ from the previous releases; however, an awesome trade off is all the new makeups, lashes, eye-shadows, brows and even contours for the new skins. Winner winner! I am wearing Patty, tone 6, with contour and red lipstick from set 8, at the mainstore. I am also loving the fierce arch of these brows!

Lady in Red

Lady in Red

I honestly believe that for every little black dress, every girl should also have a little red one in her closet. There is something sexy and brazen and assertive about the color, so why not make it a wardrobe staple? And really, with so many different hues of red, it’s a color that can look great on anyone.

Osmia has this new Jasmine dress around for Kustom9. It’s silk, and short and a bit revealing and yes, it has red! I couldn’t let all of this skin baring sexiness go to waste, so I paired it with new release Tisha hair from Phoenix, which is available at the mainstore for faMESHed go. I love the wavy, crimped curls! Tisha also comes with a HUD that includes two different bangs options, as well as single or double buns.

Havana Nights

Havana

I’ve totally had some Latin fever going on this Summer. I was watching the second Dirty Dancing movie just the other day and of course the hit song by Camila Cabello has been lighting up every other station since it’s debut. I can’t seem to escape it.

So I’ve been looking for an outfit that could feed this Latin heat and of course, Tetra and Ison had to go and collaborate on this gorgeous new top and skirt combo. It definitely makes me want to get up and salsa.

In fact, I think it would be great to see a whole lot more collaboration from designers for well… Collabor88. Makes sense, no? I’d love to hear who you think should do a collaboration together!
